TangoWithTojo on Onslaught of the Scarab God

15 hours ago

So Scarab God is one of my favorite commanders so you're in luck. I have a lot of recommendations for you. Lets start off with creatures. Creatures: Though you want mostly zombie tribal, you do want a few largely impactful cards that you can discard into your graveyard and recast with The Scarab God . Some cards I'd recommend are Sheoldred, Whispering One , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Sower of Discord <--- This card in combination with Paradox Haze + Wound Reflection make for an extremely quick kill for 2 people, Noxious Ghoul , Ghoulcaller Gisa , Eternal Skylord , Gleaming Overseer , Undead Alchemist , Corpse Connoisseur , Lord of the Accursed , Lich Lord of Unx and Gisa and Geralf

Lands: First of all your Crypt of the Eternals isn't legal in your deck as it has red mana. Now lands are usually the most expensive part of a deck but also the most important part of the deck. If you're willing to cough up the money or want to get proxies of them here's my recommendations: Cabal Coffers , Command Tower , Crypt of Agadeem , Fabled Passage , Field of the Dead , Myriad Landscape , Nephalia Drownyard , Phyrexian Tower , Polluted Delta , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , and Volrath's Stronghold . If you have a way of making a proxy I'd also recommend Underground Sea because this card is ridiculously expensive. Then equalize your basic lands a bit more with 13-14 swamps and 7-8 islands.

Sorceries/Instants: My recommendation is remove all of your instants and sorceries with the exception of From Under the Floorboards , Syphon Flesh , Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse . Now simply replace them with Restless Dreams , Mind Bomb and Careful Study so you have more discard outlets.

Artifacts/Mana Dorks: Most of your artifacts and mana dorks are good but could use some tuning. My recommendation is to swap Dimir Locket with Dimir Signet . Swap Prismatic Lens with Arcane Signet . Swap Star Compass with Commander's Sphere . Swap Charcoal Diamond with Darksteel Ingot . Then as an alternate win condition, you can toss in a Mindcrank and Strionic Resonator to mill your opponents as they take damage and then allowing you to double Scarab Gods ability.

Enchantments: You're missing out on some amazing potential with enchantments. Keep all of the ones you have but think about replacing Monastery Siege with a Rhystic Study or The Immortal Sun . Now I'm just gonna list off a lot of enchantments for you that work wonders in this style of deck. Pick and choose which ones you want: Tortured Existence , Zombie Infestation , Curse of Disturbance , Phyrexian Arena , Grave Pact , No Mercy , Dictate of Erebos , Liliana's Mastery , Open the Graves , Rooftop Storm <-- this one is a must have. Wound Reflection and finally Grave Betrayal . Your Endless Ranks of the Dead is new to me btw and I'll definitely be adding that one into my Scarab God deck. That thing is nuts.

Lastly your Maybeboard, the only cards I'd recommend putting in is Torment of Hailfire and Grave Titan . The rest are either unnecessary or do more harm than good. Though if you do want a planeswalker I'd highly recommend Liliana, Untouched By Death . She synergizes with the deck extremely well, especially if you have Rooftop Storm on the battlefield because now you can just recast everything from your graveyard for free.

How did I never realize Ghoulcaller Gisa and Intruder Alarm were a thing?!

Super cool; I like how much thought you put into this.

May I ask: Have you ever regretted the decision of playing Gisa and Geralf over something like The Scarab God ?

What makes the siblings better or more fun in your opinion?

Hogaak! +1!

Dude! I think you're selling yourself short with this one! You could put wayyy more tokens into this and break it... get those Blood Artist triggers.

Feed the Pack , Korozda Guildmage ... sac Hogaak! Pricey, but... Ghoulcaller Gisa ???

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Infernal Genesis , Awaken the Erstwhile , Plague of Vermin , Worm Harvest , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Spider Spawning , Tombstone Stairwell ... Tendershoot Dryad ... I can go on :)

Saproling Symbiosis , Zombie Infestation ... maybe?

Stinkweed Imp ... more dredge!

Cryptolith Rite , Phyrexian Altar , and Ashnod's Altar are all amazing.

Hogaak was so good they had to ban him in Modern lol.

Field of the Dead is a great land. Ghoulcaller Gisa is a great card to invest in, especially with graveyard recursion cards like Havengul Lich in your deck. Buried Alive is a great budget card for your deck.

If you want more draw, there are a couple of options. But some can get you killed. Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Phyrexian Arena , and Graveborn Muse all draw lots of cards. There's also Windfall , Kindred Discovery , Rhystic Study , and Mystic Remora for more draw.

Syr Konrad, the Grim might be a flavorful and powerful addition. I'd take out Endless Ranks of the Dead --it's only good in Ghoulcaller Gisa decks and other explicitly go-wide zombie strategies. Kind of a trap card.

Ilnez I am trying to keep it low cost.. But I agree, Ghoulcaller Gisa is a great card in a Karen deck.

Muldrotha is one of my favorites. I think some auto-inlcudes for a zombie tribal would have to be Ghoulcaller Gisa , Endless Ranks of the Dead , Overseer of the Damned and Black Market . I've rebuilt my muldrotha deck three times, and finally found a build I absolutely love. It's a sac-for-effect them but uses token generators to build an army of zombies and saprolings that can be used as sacrifices for fun stuff. If you're interested, check it out.
