Gempalm Polluter Discussion

Hi there! +1, Zombies ftw!! As a Ghoulcaller Gisa player myself, I found that I was always short to make a lot of zombies because the creatures I sacrificed had too little power. I play The lord package, but to sacrifice the lords is of course a shame. You need beefy creatures to go wide. I implemented a few extra tools to beef up my zombies in total. A few suggestions;

Stoneforge Masterwork and/or Junkyo Bell, both cards have the effect of Coat of Arms, put it on a token, attack into one of your opponents then sacrifice it to Gisa.

Rotting Regisaur,Waning Wurm,Phylactery Lich,Soulless One,Vindictive Lich all zombies, high power, cheap cast, great fodder.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a must in this deck, there is nothing more fun then Gempalm Polluter three times in a row, you got plenty mana makers in your deck already to do that.

Non-zombie cards:

Ayara, First of Locthwain: Drain/Gain and card draw and more devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. The 2/2 Zombie Tokens made by Gisa are black. Sacrificing a 10/10 token, will make 10 new zombies and 10 Ayara triggers.

What about Gempalm Polluter?

oeliberti I did have some cantrips in, but cut them in favour of tutor to graveyard effects and tried to have creature draw engines.

Epicurus I do enjoy the suggestions of Forbidden Alchemy and Taigam's Scheming. I cut Mission Briefing for Bond of Insight as a felt it just does more work here. Ghoulcaller Gisa has been benched due to her not being a zombie (apart from commander and wonder no zombies). Gempalm Polluter is interesting though. Also I appreciate the Tenacious D ref ;).

In making my Sygg, Tollfolk and Governor-Goddess Ephara Decks, I became very interested in turn-related effects, and that inspire this card, as well as Klothys, God of Destiny, who switches the way usually work, whereas most Gruul cards use green's might to accomplish red's free spirit, She uses Red's fury to express nature's law which green cares about.

Based on (Gerðr)[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ger%C3%B0r] in Kaldheim.


Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter

Legendary Snow Creature - God

Protection from instants

You may cast Khyrteh, Goddess of Polar Winter

Whenever a player casts a spell at a time they couldn't cast a sorcery, that player loses 5 life.

At the beginning of your endstep, if you cast no spells this turn, search your library for a card, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it and you gain 5 life.

2/10


This deck would use Eidolon of Rhetoric, Rule of Law, Curse of Exhaustion, Ethersworn Canonist, Oppression, Uba Mask, Tainted AEther, Desolation, Angelic Arbiter, Nullstone Gargoyle, and Painful Quandary effects to force my opponents to make difficult decisions. Bloodchief Ascension, Strionic Resonator, etc. would also give you more advantage from this ability.

Tax effects, like Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Trinisphere, Lodestone Golem, Trinisphere, Nether Void, Glowrider, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Aura of Silence, Spelltithe Enforcer, Chancellor of the Annex and Feroz's Ban

Decree of Pain, Decree of Justice, Astral Drift, Death Pulse, Dirge of Dread, Eternal Dragon, Gempalm Avenger, Gempalm Polluter, Renewed Faith, Stir the Sands, Sunfire Balm and Abandoned Sarcophagus & Archfiend of Ifnir, also Oketra's Attendant, Undead Gladiator, Bloodsoaked Champion, Dread Wanderer, Nether Spirit, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, Angel of Sanctions,Anointer Priest, Sacred Cat, Dark Depths, Thespian's Stage, Shambling Vent, etc. to avoid 'casting' spells.

grand arbiter synergizes well... yeah...

I'm a stax player who got into the deck because of Death and Taxes, especially Mother of Runes, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Her printing got me into standard/formal play), Gaddock Teeg, and Iona, Shield of Emeria.

I really just made a card I wish existed...


I'd like to see another Kaldheim God!

There’s a lot of good suggestions here. I’m going to find room for at least Akroma's Vengeance, Unearth seems up my alley, Undead Gladiator, Gempalm Polluter and Cast Out. I actually really like the graveyard hate too, I just wish I had more ways to get it back once it hits the yard. I‘ve never been a big fan of one shot effects in commander. But I could focus on discarding creatures and digging for Bone Miser/Zombie Apocalypse.

The cycling sub-theme seems like a lot more investments than payoffs.

Gempalm Polluter feels like a nice zombie-themed include. Same for Lurching Rotbeast and Moaning Wall. Undead Gladiator also synergizes with your Bone Miser.

Running removal options like Clear/Forsake the Worldly, Expunge,Cast Out and Akroma's Vengeance might be useful. Your deck looks defensive, so maybe Choking Tethers or Djeru's Renunciation?

To bolster your control, maybe Compelling Argument or Countervailing Winds?

Scarab Feast and Rapid Decay answer decks that want you to mill them or use their own graveyards. Unearth gets low-cost zombies or Phantasmal Image back.

Maybe Abandoned Sarcophagus, while you're at it? And if you're cycling so much, throw in Fluctuator.

Nice brew! Ever thought of Gempalm Polluter? Can win games with the cycling effect. It's one of my favorite ways to win in my zombie deck. How about Lava Zombie? lol I don't think it adds anything but it's janky and funny art. Not sure if it was on your list but another personal favorite is Shepherd of Rot. It comes down to personal taste on that one though.

Good Luck +1
