Dread Summons Discussion

Azdranax on * needs help Mikaeus EDH*

5 days ago

Here are several suggestions, both zombie specific and Mikaeus specific: Balthor the Defiled to reanimate all of your dead zombies; Liliana, Death's Majesty to make them, reanimate them, and/or board wipe everything but them; Triskelion to create an endless undying loop to combo kill your opponents; Door of Destinies for zombie mass pump; Stoneforge Masterwork for zombie solo pump; Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar with Vengeful Dead in play creates an endless sacrifice loop to drain all your opponents (maybe even add Blood Artist or Bontu's Monument for an additional combo opportunity); Death Baron because larger zombies with deathtouch are better; and Dread Summons for a load of zombie tokens to overrun your opponents. That should be a good start.

chaosumbreon87 what I have been finding and researching looks like a lot of fun. One combo I saw was with Dread Summons , Army of the Damned, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh. And with Cabal Coffers, Crypt of Agadeem and all the tutors in black and all the sacs with Bontu it could do a lot of damage. Also powering up bontu with artifacts since she has menace you could go for lethal commander damage. especially if there are artifacts that could giver her trample and double strike, which I assume there are.

ILOVEPIEDUDE on Sidisi's Nombies EDH

Oh, I guess I can't hold the first comment.

Hello VesuvanDoppelbanger!

I thought about adding him in, but between the Filth/Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth interaction and Wonder I've found that I rarely need trample. The ramp would be nice for cards like Dread Summons but I've found that I rarely get to use it.

Overall, I feel this version of Sidisi I've made is way too deep on the "I hope Sidisi doesn't die," but my playgroup doesn't play removal and I'm hoping this will teach them what happens when they don't. However, I like the suggestion and the ramp might be nice after my playgroup adds more removal to their decks!

outspokencharlatans on So, any ideas on building ...

Since Binding Mummy and Wayward Servant have abilities that trigger when a zombie enters the battlefield, it would be beneficial to push how many zombies get to the field. Thus, pairing cards that push tokens to the battlefield (see: Drunau Corpse Trawler for example, or Dread Summons) with Anointed Procession can dramatically increase the presence of zombies on the battlefield whilst fulfilling the horde you want to create.

Other things that might be helpful:Shamble Back, Diregraf Colossus, Never to Return (aftermath from Amonkhet, it won't format correctly here), and Stir the Sands.

Naturally these are just suggests, and I don't have a full, all-encompassing knowledge of MtG cards that would optimize your deck. You can always play around on gatherer.wizards.com to find cards that push zombies.

That being said, Binding Mummy, Wayward Servant, and Anointed Procession will definitely add to your zombie deck. Lord of the Accursed from Amonkhet is also helpful.

I do hope something in here was at least a little helpful.

No Plague Belcher? You might also consider River Kelpie. Though not a zombie, the kelpie nets you two cards every time you cast a zombie from the grave. Other possibilities: Undead Alchemist, Intruder Alarm, Stitcher Geralf, Dread Summons.

@Bhaal666: Ghoulcaller Gisa, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Grave Titan are already in there. I do really like Primal Rage as an option. I had no idea that existed. I am thinking Overseer of the Damned, Dread Summons, Noosegraf Mob, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.

With Meren though, remember... Craterhoof can come back.
