Geralf's Mindcrusher Discussion

Thanks for checking out my Grim-Grin deck.

A couple cards that are nice for getting more creatures in their graveyard to abuse Scarab God are Geralf's Mindcrusher and Geth, Lord of the Vault

Lord of the Undead can be solid to get your creatures back. Especially those with ETC effects. Dreamborn Muse or Graveborn Muse are possibilities, although you have to be careful with graveborn.

Serum Visions looks like a pretty weak card for Commander. Basically you are paying 1 to scry 2 since the draw just replaces the serum visions you cast. Ambition's Cost, Morbid Curiosity, Promise of Power, or Ancient Craving are better for one off card draw.

Cryptbreaker could be fantastic in this deck if you can keep it alive. Greed, Grim Haruspex, and Rhystic Study are solid repeatable draw for Commander.

Hope some of these suggestions are useful. Good Luck!

Geralf's Mindcrusher is a decent miller and undyer too. I swear I won't think of another card in the next 5 minutes...

Geralf's Mindcrusher comes to mind.

I really like the flash into Body Snatcher, why don't you go for eldrazi in this case? I think Geralf's Mindcrusher is weak in this deck since it's not a mill deck. Wurmcoil Engine is another good one. Consider Snapcaster Mage for flashback, or effects that'll let you have more effective Flashes Eternal Witness for example...

Pilfered Plans for draws, Propaganda for much-needed protection, Bonehoard is an OHK, Geralf's Mindcrusher is a big thing, Memory Erosion is some more milling, Nemesis of Reason is also gigantic and terrifying, Profane Memento makes you that extra bit harder to kill, Riddlekeeper is a decent deterrent for attackers, and Sphinx's Tutelage, once again, mills things.

From one Dimir agent to another: stay millin' and stay chillin'.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Sun Titan Holy crap he is a must in this deck.

I'm just spit-balling here:

Felidar Guardian

Geralf's Mindcrusher or Jace's Mindseeker would be cool to go infinite with

Great Whale or Palinchron more bang for your buck (plus its nice to have options)

Knight of the White Orchid is a better Kor Cartographer

Phyrexian Ingester I'm not too sure about the interaction of repeated flashes, but it could work.

Murk Strider or better yet Ulamog's Reclaimer

HAHAHA I am definitely going to go and make a FLICKER DECK IM SO EXCITED. Thanks for the idea, man. I spent so much time looking these cars up I just can't not make my own deck! +10000

Oops I forgot about Scarab God itself when looking at the cards for synergy! Training Grounds makes sense now! Since you're looking at winning in more conventional ways, you should consider including Nighthowler, Geralf's Mindcrusher, and possibly Undead Alchemist (since all tokens from Scarab God are zombies, this may be a really cool addition). Maybe Avatar of Woe? To free up the space, I would take out Memory Erosion since it is slower than you'd think (I run a Phenax-led mill deck).

Overall, I think you could benefit from a few less Instants to allow for a few more creatures. While Scarab God can sort of create your army from nothing, small number of CMC 3-or-less creatures could hurt you early on. To fix that particular issue, maybe Jace's Phantasm and possibly Manic Scribe? That's more dependent on your group's meta though, like if there are folks running aggro decks or not.

Also, you've got Talisman of Dominance in there twice by accident.
