Where is Ghoulcaller Gisa? If this is a horde deck it needs Gisa.

DemonDragonJ on List of Commanders by Home ...

1 day ago

Now that WotC's Commander products are an annual product (I still refer to the format itself as Elder Dragon Highlander/EDH, because I was introduced to it by that name), I wish to make a list of all the legendary creatures, or commanders, who have appeared in those sets, by plane of origin.

I shall be including both new legendary creatures introduced in those sets, as well as previous cards that were reprinted in those sets (which includes Commander's Arsenal), but I will not include legendary creatures that have not been printed in a Commander set, even if other creatures from their plane have been in those sets. I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one commander, alphabetically by name, and then list each commander from that plane, alphabetically by name. If a commander is from a specific region or belongs to a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

What does everyone else think of this list? It took a great amount of time to write this list, so I hope that you appreciate it. I would not at all be surprised to learn that I mistakenly listed a commander's home plane as unknown, when it is actually known, so please let me know if I made any mistakes, and I also shall add new legendary creatures to this list whenever WotC releases a new Commander set.

I'm not sure about creatures but Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is my obvious first thought. Blanket of Night is a cheap Enchantment that has the same effect. I will remind you, redundancy is important. You don't want to lose your ability to Swampwalk because your opponent removes Urborg.

Contaminated Ground, Evil Presence, and Tainted Well all provide Swampwalk but only for one opponent each. Leshrac's Rite gives one of your creatures Swampwalk.

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is a "Swamps Matter" Commander, although I'm not sure how good he will perform. Zombie Master can be ran to give him Swampwalk as well. Squelching Leeches and Nightmare are both creatures that benefit from a lot of Swamps.

Personally I run a Ghoulcaller Gisa deck that is Zombie Tribal. The Tribal theme is primary, while Swampwalk is just a hopeful Win Condition.

I figure you also want as much land ramp as you can get, especially if you are running Korlash as your Commander. Black has some issues with this but Liliana of the Dark Realms is good. I can't think of much else outside of Burnished Hart and Expedition Map.

You will definitely want to run Cabal Coffers, I suggest using all Snow-Covered Swamp and Extraplanar Lens to double the mana from each of your Basics, while not giving your opponents any benefit. Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are also good. Lastly, Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are both awesome.

iAzire on Optimizing Gisa

2 weeks ago

I have found that I need a less competitive deck for when I go out to play. Zur the Enchanter is great but it wins too fast too often. It really isn't a deck I want to play when I'm out to have fun and kill time.

I love Zombies, love Tribal and really enjoy the playstyle of Ghoulcaller Gisa when I'm out just to have fun. While I want to play this as my less competitive deck, I want to make it as competitive as Gisa can be. I want true Gisa optimization.

Please help me optimize this deck. When I built it, I somehow neglected some of my favorite pieces, and there is probably much I have forgotten about all together.

Cards off the top of my head that I have forgotten, and need to make room for are.

Please help me with what I'm missing, and what I need to take out. I often have issues when taking cards out.

I have intentionally left out all of the Zombie Infect. I used to play Zombie Infect w/ Anthems and it burns you out after awhile.

Hi kamikaze0311, just kinda discovered kresh with a friend recently and decided to see what people have done with it. I love how you turned kresh into control it's beautiful haha. Rite of the Raging Storm is such a plus for this deck especially in multiplayer. Have you looked in to Ghoulcaller Gisa? It's the first thing I thought of when I saw kresh because it effectively gives you double the power of whatever creature you just sacced in the form of zombies. And if you were to pair it with something like Nantuko Husk, you could sac your board, make a giant nantuko, sac nantuko with ghisa, use whatever fling type spell you've got or just swing for the win with kresh. Just an idea, I run a full on graveyard deck with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death so anything with sacking really looks like a fun build. Great deck though!

Sacrificing a Lashwrithe equipped zombie token to Ghoulcaller Gisa, especially late game, just got really crazy after a while. A ton of fun to play!
