Ghoulcaller Gisa Discussion
1 day ago
If you want to ramp up your ability to control the board cards like Meekstone do the trick
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is another sac option

wouldn't Ghoulcaller Gisa be really good in this deck?

Door of Destinies I’d say was slightly better than Coat of Arms because it only affects your creatures, I would definitely recommend Ghoulcaller Gisa just really good for token spam remove forgoten creation , Liliana's Reaver, Raving Dead for power Dictate of Erebos Grave Pact for board control, due to the balance of high black compared to blue I’d recommend Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for a lot of mana, I’d recommend since your blue black running more board wipes like Cyclonic Rift DamnationDecree of Pain, Patriarch's Bidding for more reanimation, EDH staples like Sol Ring are useful for mana ramp,Grave Betrayal for stealing other creatures, since you run blue black more card draw is needed so things like Rhystic Study and Phyrexian Arena

Zombies might be the most supported tribe in magic... Check out this page for lots of options
Here are some that I like
Something I would recommend for sure is colors.
most useful > >> or >>> Least useful
is most important
is a great secondary
and seem roughly equal to me. Most the white support is more recent than the red support.
might have something worthwhile because golgari is a thing but this will probably be the most limited.

This looks far better; we have a defined theme now and I see some more staples in (dorks). However I'd like to address few likely weak spots.
First thing that got my attention was the relatively high average cmc. This is a casual deck and higher-than-usual avg cmc is to be expected of course. But in my suggestions I'll keep in mind fostering a healthy curve and prioritize low-cmc cards.
Dragon Broodmother- this is a neat, but a very slow engine. If the deck works perfectly as intended, there are still cooler options. Plus 6cmc for such slow effect is a lot.
Ghoulcaller Gisa - again, neat but slow. At 5cmc there might be better options available to you. First similar thing that comes to mind is Open the Graves which would give you tokens more reliably (being a triggered rather than an activated ability stapled to an enchantment rather than a creature) and that doesn't have summoning sickness.
Sheoldred, Whispering One - probably the best expensive creature you have. My concern is that in order to get to 7 mana and stay alive long enough for Sheoldred to matter, you must have game in a state where, frankly, SHeoldred isn't much of a factor.
Stalking Vengeance seems awfully expensive TBH. That ceiling is something, but IMO it's too greedy.
Vicious Shadows - 7 mana to do something in case you have a removal and an opponent has significant number of cards in hand? You can comfortably throw in a blue moon somewhere in that chain of events...
Essence Harvest - goes well with the theme, but ultimately doesn't do much
Fungal Sprouting - cute, but the fact that it's useless when you're down makes it a no no in my eyes.
Now some suggestions;
Fecundity - seems like a cool way to draw extra cards
Skullclamp - in here it says ": draw 2 cards". Yes please.
Fling/Thud - these effects seem like they could/should be your bread and butter. Worst case scenario they're pw/creature removal with sac outlet. Best case scenario they are capable of taking down players.
Sidisi, Undead Vizier- tutor on a stick is usually good if you have creatures to sac. In a vacuum it's a Demonic Tutor that gives counters to Kresh. Best case scenario you have a sac outlet and get a complimentary 4/6 deathtouch to fool around with.
Smothering Abomination - draw engine on a stick. Seems good.
Birthing Pod - it kills stuff plus it tutors. And it's repeatable. What's not to like?
Evolutionary Leap - sac outlet that gets you more creatures.

I also really like Cauldron Dance too, especially with the built in sac and ETB triggers - let's you get 3 ETB's in one creature (first play, cauldron dance, replay) such a great value card for Kresh, and I can see it being super fun in conjunction with Deathrender, other recursion/ETB. I guess Cauldron Dance just hasn't made it into mine because of there not being quite enough, and the casting cost. I don't believe Deathrender is necessarily better than Caldron Dance because the caldron does something so unique.
I had been thinking of Warstorm Surge in a version as well. aActually I'm considering a Kresh token deck that I'll share with you if you're interested when I've got the bulk of it together, but I don't think Ghoulcaller Gisa made it onto that list and Ogre Battledriver is also a fantastic addition. Korozda Guildmage and Carrion can both get a large amount of tokens out fast with Kresh, the Carrion wouldn't work with Warstorm Surge. I'll have to review my list when I get the chance, but I feel there's 1-2 others. My other idea is continuing on with the with that theme is the Warstorm Surge and adding Purphoros, God of the Forge type mechanics. But that's a whole other focus.
Maybe Vicious Shadows could be a great addition here?, though I haven't reviewed the mana curve yet.
Rite of the Raging Storm is a fun favourite for me in Kresh.
I really like the recursion focus here. It could be quite fun and I'd like to do a built of this style at one point.
I'd be interested to hear if you have any ideas for my Mutiny & Martyr version of Kresh.

Hey! I have some criticisms, and of course a deck to link below. For now I'll focus on cuts, but if you'd like I could also talk about cards to potentially add.
Before we move on to specific cards, there's an overarching problem I'd like to address; the mana curve. You have next-to-no one drops, and you have SO many four+ mana plays! Try to get your curve down a touch.
Butcher of Malakir, while good, is seven mana. You only really need one Dictate of Erebos effect on the field, and if you're running this right, then you should absolutely be drawing enough cards to get to it quickly even if you only have two (DoE itself and Savra, Queen of the Golgari).
Ghoulcaller Gisa is fine, but only if you have plenty of high-power creatures. Your deck is only reanimating one creature per turn (which I'll talk about more if we get into inclusions) and it can be EITHER a large creature OR a utility creature, most of the time.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury is nice, but as I have learned, 1) it's not really worth the cost if you also have to cast the card you choose, and 2) something about having their spells stolen really rubs people the wrong way. It tends to draw hate.
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is 1) going to die very quickly, and 2) not going to do a ton anyway. Do you wanna sac your creatures? If so then those counters are going to be strictly temporary and not enough to do a whoke ton.
Midnight Reaper, if all goes well, will kill you. You will be sacrificing enough creatures that it will drain you out of the game. If all goes well, anyway.
Mycoloth doesn't make it to your upkeep. Not only that, but once you drop something like that, people perceive you as a threat for the rest of the game.
Pathbreaker Ibex is a great card, but it isn't going to do anything when you have like five creatures on the battlefield. Those five creatures, even with the boost, are still gonna be smaller than all your opponents'.
Rune-Scarred Demon? There are better tutors at much less mana.
Skullbriar, the Walking Grave is terrible in this deck. You have no way to put counters on it! Yeah, combat I guess, but that's not very effective. You'd be better served by Reassembling Skeleton, I think.
Viridian Zealot's mana cost is really clunky and its ability is not that great. There are just better creatures who do the same thing.
How many creatures are you attacking with per turn that makes Eldrazi Monument good??
Golgari Charm is not that great here.
Greater Good is usually just discarding cards and drawing one or two cards.
