Geth, Lord of the Vault Discussion

magicthe on Lots a mill

2 weeks ago

Hi Millathon

Your current build seems unfocused. Your deck is split in two ways of attacking the opponent. Your attacking your opponent library with semi-aggressive milling cards like Altar of the Brood, Memory Erosion and Jace's Phantasm. Simultanously, you want to have defensive creature so that your combo of Undead Alchemist and Alter of the Brood works.

Most of the suggestions you've gotten so far, has been expand of the mill strategy with Jace's Phantasm and Memory Erosion as most important cards of this plan. I will suggest cards, that might help you build an aggressive Zombie Milling with the combo you likely love of Undead Alchemist and Altar of the Brood

Creatures you might want: Gravecrawler Geralf's Messenger Geth, Lord of the Vault Fleshbag Marauder Diregraf Ghoul Cryptbreaker Dregscape Zombie Lifebane Zombie Relentless Dead Risen Executioner Unbreathing Horde Undead Warchief Diregraf Captain Prized Amalgam Lich Lord of Unx

For Support, you might want to look at cards like these: Cryptic Command Exhaustion Dark Confidant Remand Graf Harvest

It seems odd to play Grave Titan in a mill deck

There is a quite good UB mill deck but it plays more like a Burn deck

But if you want to have more a Control deck I would recommend:

Hedron Crab Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver Haunting Echoes Traumatize

The new Fatal Push seems Great ; Duress is a good budget option; Mana Leak ; Disfigure Go for the Throat are all Decent and Jace, Memory Adept is a great clock on his own

then i would cut the "Mirror Mad" idea as its a slow 2 card combo which wont win you the game and is quite weak on their own and Geth, Lord of the Vault and Consuming Aberration

Octrate, buddy! Thanks for the comment and the invested time, as always!

Yeah the cmc is definitely higher than I'm used to, so even though I limited myself to only playing cards at cmc 7 or less, im forced to run more ramp than usual, and only ramp that ramps by 2 or more too.

Timesifter is one of those weird cards that I can't cut until I lower the average cmc, but until then, I'm prepared to abuse it to hell!

Dreamstone Hedron has been underperforming lately, but i honestly think it was because I drew it at weird times, so it may prove to be indispensable, but we shall see.

Gather Specimens would be the first to go of them, but I dont feel right taking out these responsive cards, mostly because I don't have much in the way of ensuring I keep a good board state once I have one. The fact that they can also help me get there seems to push them over the top into "I can't afford to cut these cards" territory.

Chancellor of the Spires is by no means efficient, but stealing permanents is so much more commonplace that I have even resorted to cards that cost a lot. Plus, being able to Necromancy it out seems like fun lol

I've played Nezumi Graverobber as you undoubtedly remember. However between having to pay at least 9 mana before reanimatin the first creature, each creature past that costs 5 mana to reanimate, and the fact that it can only reanimate creatures puts this card nearly into not worth playing. I just can't see him being better than Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Coffin Queen, Beacon of Unrest, Chainer, Dementia Master, Geth, Lord of the Vault, or Sepulchral Primordial, so with all the card draw in the deck, is a 9th copy of Reanimate really worth playing it?

Sower of Temptation is fine, but I've tried as much as possible to avoid effects that can turn Murders into 2-for-1's. My commander is the only card that falls under that, but it's the best commander for the deck. However, running a card that has the same weaknesses as the card everyone sees before the game begins makes it even worse.

Coalition Relic is a solid card. In all honesty, it will probably replace Dreamstone Hedron if I take it out in the future. Thanks!

As much as I love cards that Redirect or copy spells on the stack, I've always felt it's too situational. Luckily, Insidious Will works in both situations and more, so its definitely playable. Do you think I'm being unnecessarily apprehensive?

Is Plagiarize another suggestion? Because it and Notion Thief could be or might not be thematic additions to draw cards, but idk how effective they are.

And thank you again!

Faytl and RicketyEng did my best for some ideas for your deck. Hope they help

Here is a theory deck that I threw together on a premise that I think might be fun to play. Basically everything has death touch, discard, sacrifice or any other way to get cards into graveyards to abuse the commander Geth, Lord of the Vault in my first mono-black deck. (also first deck I built from scratch without precon or someone else's deck to build from)

Trying to keep this on a budget, and just steal expensive cards from the guys I play with. ;-) Price is currently $25.78 according to TCG. Love to try and beat the guys with more expensive decks with my cheap gimic decks. :-)

bigdon9: I'm going to have to agree with you on that. I can probably cut a Swamp or Terrain Generator for the Mirrorpool. I would just need to find a cut for Geth, Lord of the Vault. Thoughts?

PartyJ I haven't seen a Sisay deck before (or looked into one at least) and it is an interesting playstyle. I offered some ramp advice as I have played a few decks with green ramp in them.
