Dread Return Discussion

greatdevourer on Dredge for the win second turn nearly every time

1 week ago

Ooooh, I really like using Progenitus instead of Akroma, Angel of Wrath. When my Dredge deck was running in competitive environments Progenitus had not been printed yet and Akroma, Angel of Wrath was a metagame powerhouse. Progenitus is much better. Also, I do like the addition of the Gitaxian Probe for the card draw. Dredge doesn't worry too much about it's own life total. It is too much of a combo deck.

I just noticed that you only have 4 cards in the sideboard. Which means you are running 71 cards in the main board. You should really work on getting it down to the 60 card main board that most of us run. It really does impact your card draws and makes the deck run smoother. If I were you, I would look at cutting the Balustrade Spy and the Shambling Shell. The Balustrade Spy doesn't dredge or draw. It is better for use with a Laboratory Maniac which would also be a great Dread Return target. If you are going to return the Spy, you only need one or two. cutting a few other cards down to one, two, or three would lighten the deck and bring you closer to 60 cards.

Also, I notices that have Darkblast and Bridge from Below. These will work against each other. If you Darkblast an opponent's creature, then the Bridge from Below will get exiled from your graveyard which will prevent you from generating the zombie tokens you want.

I can highly recommend Dread Return, Necromancy and Reya Dawnbringer.Beacon of Unrest is good too. The cards that put things back into your hand instead of the battlefield would be the first things I would cut.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip is white/red as far as I know. So by the rules you couldn't play her because she doen't fit with the colors of your commander.Correct me if I'm wrong tho'.

enpc: Seriously, I should just pay you to make my replies for me haha!

JerichoDarkstar: Exactly as enpc says! I'm also including the Animate Dead + Worldgorger Dragon combo as back up in case something goes wrong (ex. someone exiles Necrotic Ooze). You start the combo by targeting Sun Titan with Dread Return. Sun Titan hits Animate Dead, and you know the drill from there. The added benefit is that Sun Titan comes in every time, potentially bringing back all your lands and any creatures (mana dorks maybe?) you find useful.

Kinpa6Ansatsu: I'm not planning to add the Angel of Glory's Rise + Azami, Lady of Scrolls + Laboratory Maniac due to the lack of synergy with the deck. Everything is just dead in my hand/ on field until I'm ready to end the game.

wyatt0781: While a kidney does earn you upwards of $80k, I don't recommend it. It's just cardboard after all. :D

If you are wanting to run this as a graveyard centric deck, I believe you are missing a few cards.

Buried Alive, Entomb, Life from the Loam, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Dread Return

The list goes on and on, but I'm not sure from your description what you are going for. The title says gravelord, and the list is mostly stock from what I can tell. If you really want some critiques, let me know what you are leaning towards. I'll do my best to assist.

A better path is to Dread Return Angel of Glory's Rise,this card will then return Azami, Lady of Scrolls and Laboratory Maniac. Tap the labman win the game.

JerichoDarkstar: I depends which Hermit Druid combo you want to run but the best is:

Hermit Druid mills entire deck, hitting Narcomoeba, Dread Return and Fatestitcher as well as Morselhoarder, Devoted Druid, Necrotic Ooze and Spikeshot Elder.

Unearth Fatestitcher and sac it, Narcomoeba and HD to Dread Return flashing back Necrotic Ooze.

Now Ooze has Devoted Druid's ability to untap itself by putting a -1/-1 counter on itself an Morselhoarder's ability to remove -1/-1 counters to get mana. It also has Spikeshot Elder's ability to do a bunch of damage given mana.
