Magiclover318 I went 2-3. I played it before i started splashing green, which i should have bit the bullet and done anyway.
Round 1 -- I lost to Blue Moon -- got beaten down by batterskull in game 1 -- misplayed the turn i could have won in game 2. Who knows how game 3 would have gone.
Round 2 -- I beat an elf ramp deck. I was able to remove their big threats, and they had no removal for my curve. Ended up dropping a 16 dmg gary ftw in game 2.
Round 3 -- Lost to affinity. Game 1 wasn't close. Game 2 was closer. I never drew a Damnation the whole tourney.
Round 4 -- Guy didn't show up so I auto-won.
Round 5 -- Epic 3 round battle with American Control. In the third game, my 1st turn Thoughtseize revealed 2 Snapcaster Mage s in his opening hand. I got rid of one, and must've cast 3 more discard spells to try to get rid of the second one, but he kept countering them. He countered my Grafdigger's Cage , and was able to win on a snapcasted Lightning Bolt on the turn i would have won with Phyrexian Obliterator and Geralf's Messenger attacking.
I would side board lifebane zombie for diregraf ghoul and maybe drop some of your unbreathing horde for something like slitherhead or another one drop. I'd also take out the liliana's reaver in favor of 2 ranks of the undead
-3 Lifebane Zombie - sideboard
Something like that
I don't see the validity of your complaint against Geralf's Messenger . Most creatures suffer from summoning sickness, Geralf comes into play and does 2 damage to opponent. So essentially he is like a 2/2 haste/unblockable creature when he hits the field, which to me seems aggro. He has resistance to removal and with all the 2 drop creature removal spells you already have, i think geralf may actually serve you well as a replacement to Gatekeeper of Malakir .
It adds devotion.
It provides a steady stream of cards rather than just 2 once.
Geralf's Messenger is pretty good as it adds 3 devotion, pings the opponent, and can either attack or chump block twice.
seems pretty good here. It provides T2 2 devotion, chumps all day, and and survives removal.
I questioned the Black Oak of Odunos myself. But I keep Geralf's Messenger for devotion so that I can drop Gray Merchant of Asphodel for a lot and also for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . The Bone Splinters and Altar's Reap is a good combo so I'll take that for consideration. Thanks for the advice and consider your deck +1 as well. Walking Dead all the way!
Black Oak of Odunos Seems kind of useless in the scenario that we care going for. We want to overrun the enemy with zombies while making sure their board stays clear. Geralf's Messenger is a great card and so is Gravecrawler . Using Bone Splinters and Altar's Reap utilize those creatures. I took the messenger out of my deck because of Mikaeus, the Unhallowed giving everything undying anyways. I further used the zombies sac abilities to fuel Grave Pact and Dark Prophecy .
Also, i'm pretty sure this deck would be able to be classed as a modern deck as far as i can tell. +1 from a fellow zombie and walking dead fan!
Hi! It's me again. What would you think about your
Plus your choice of:
I understand that my cards are of lower value but I would be trading full sets.
Dralnu, Lich Lord is there for flashback, being able to use Lightning Volley and Ghoulcaller's Chant twice is nice. I am planning on putting Gravecrawler in place of Festering Goblin for my next purchase. Gravecrawler is just a little pricey, especially getting a whole set. Geralf's Messenger is great, but I dunno. The reason why I don't have Terminate in is with my deathtouch zombies Lightning Volley becomes a board wipe card. But you're right, I need more red. Thinking about Fervor but I don't know what I'd take out to for it.
