Disciple of Griselbrand Discussion

Vykrin on The Art of Betrayal

seshiro_of_the_orochi Sidisi, Undead Vizier could definitely be an interesting addition. Kheru Dreadmaw however i think is way to slow and honestly useless since i already have Disciple of Griselbrand and he does the same thing for a fraction of the cost. Thanks for the suggestions though man!

You know, I really like the idea of sacrificing Viridian Emissary for mana ramp. As much as I like young wolf's undying you might consider ditching him for Blisterpod just for the mana. I feel like you're going to have a problem casting Soulcage Fiend early because of this double black mana cost. Since your ramp is green you're probably going to want to have more forest cards than swamps so you don't get mana screwed in the early game. Also your land base is really light; I don't think 20 lands is going to cut it here. You're definitely going to need to add some B/G lands like Overgrown Tomb, Woodland Cemetery, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, or Jungle Hollow, depending on your needs / budget. I'm not completely sold on Disciple of Griselbrand as a morbid enabler, but I can't think of anything else at the moment. But overall I think this idea is very interesting and could be super fun deck. +1

First of all, with this high CMC you need 24 lands.

While I understand you are trying to sacrifice your creatures for beneficial effects, the high converted mana cost of your deck makes it kind of hard to work with.

Here are some lower cost creatures that could be good:

Augur of SkullsBasal Sliver (mana accelerator to cast Ruthless Deathfang faster)Bile UrchinBlind ZealotBlood BairnBloodthrone VampireCarrier Thrall (mana accelerator, 2x creature)Corpse HaulerDeath CultistDemonic Taskmaster (need tokens spawn everyturn)Devouring SwarmWestvale Abbey  Flip This is a must have.Disciple of Griselbrand Save yourself.Doomed Necromancer Worth it.Eldrazi Skyspawner Mana acceleratorFont of ReturnFume SpitterGnawing ZombieGutless GhoulMerciless ExecutionerMortician Beetle -------> Cause why not.Nezumi Bone-Reader ControlPawn of Ulamog mana acceleratorQarsi SadistQuest for the GravelordThoughtpicker Witch controlThrull Surgeon controlVampiric RitesVoracious Null

Skirsdag High Priest Isn't this amazing?

Emzed on Chainer, Grave Defiler

In my experience, Chainer requires a ton of mana to work properly. Therefore, i really liked Black Market and Gilded Lotus in my Chainer deck. Bubbling Muck can also lead to some great turns. It's also nice to have access to sacrifice outlets to prevent accidental exiling of creatures due to Chainer's ability, as well as some lifegain to ensure you can activate him a couple of times. Disciple of Griselbrand provides both effects and has repeatedy impressed me in my games.
Baleful Force migth be another good fatty for you, without Erebos constantly available, some more card draw seems useful.

It's looking really good! I'm just going to throw some cards your way but it doesn't mean you have to put them in, they would just fit with the theme. Lone Rider  Flip which is a sick 2 drop, Karlov of the Ghost Council I think he would absolutely excel here. I have had games that by turn 4 he is a 12/12! Then I would highly suggest replacing Disciple of Griselbrand for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim they cost the same and have the same first ability but Ayli has the added benefit of also being able to exile a non land permanent. It's a really great looking deck!
