Ghoulcaller Gisa Discussion

AkaAkuma on Reyhan & Ishai, Tarkir's Tandem

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Ghoulcaller Gisa could bring good alternate win combo's and a sacrifice outlet! :)

Personaly I think Ghoulcaller Gisa should be tier one. With her ability, some reanimation, and creatures that keep coming back, its easy to get over 20 tokens out by turn 10.

Izu_Korasu on Liliana vs Kothoped as commander

1 week ago

in my playgroup, there USED TO BE a Kothophed deck (now its a Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck) the problem is that the life loss actually becomes a huge problem (boardwipe? okay ill lose 15, draw 15 ... um)

there are ways to mitigate this loss (like Blood Artist) but most mono-black decks use the graveyard to their advantage, which kothophed cant really do.

liliana on the other hand can use the graveyard, and flipping her is rather easy. but she feels like more of a 99 then a commander.

Given the black cards listed, Lili feels like a better choice. BUT i would like to add Ghoulcaller Gisa, Geth, Lord of the Vault and Sidisi, Undead Vizier for consideration.

Ghoulcaller Gisa is a must for creating tokens. Works very well in my Meren build.

AkaAkuma on Counters on my burd.

Hey Lissie, I saw your video and wanted to share my own experiences. I love these partners and think your deck is good, but still to much focused on Atraxa than Reyhan. My deck Witch-Maw | Khan and Deciple Counter Bonanza! explains what im about to say and more too, but here i go anyway.

For ramp i would add Ordeal of Nylea as it instantly resolves once Reyhan attacks.

Allot of your removal resolves on removing or exiling every creature, which sets you back as well. Possible even further then others since you need to grow back while other just throw big things on the field. But blue actually has allot to solve that! Curse of the Swine, AEtherize and Cyclonic Rift are examples i also use and work very well. Also Living Death is a must as it actually works with Reyhan's trigger to "paste" counters on your reanimated creatures after living death's trigger is finished! Finally Selfless Squire while not removing, prevents and creates counters!

Going on Reyhan can break the legend rule with Mirror Mockery. When enchanting Reyhan, he can now place 3 counters on 2 target creatures every attack as the copy "enters the battlefield with 3 counters". And after this copy "entered play" we have to sacrifice one Reyhan instantly since the Legend rule states we can't have more than one. But this is exactly what we want to avoid that exile effect on mirror mockery.

Now imagine a Rite of Replication and Strionic Resonator on a Corpsejack Menace or a Deepglow Skate ;). And if that was good, imagine the replication on Reyhan with the same explanation as with mirror mockery. But now we have 6 Reyhans. 5 which needs to be sacrificed, all on which 6 Reyhan abilities trigger and they all have 3 counters....... urgh all this math, my brain hurts.

The last issue i usually face with these partners is getting through an opponent. It's big fun having this big 80/80 Ishai but once you tap it, it can get blocked and eh... Which is where i added Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Ghoulcaller Gisa. So now we sacrifice Ishai, so something which isn't blocked gets these 79 counters, or we create 79 zombies or we just do 79 lifeloss.. so much alternate wincons!

Have fun on playing! I hope this helps!

I agree with the Ghoulcaller Gisa strategy. Put a Thornbite Staff on her, and run Carnival of Souls. Infinite tokens, if you can nullify the life loss. Wait, running green and white? Soul Warden and Essence Warden take care of that.

Sweet, now I want to build a Karador deck.

MindAblaze on Zombie Token Revival (Work In Progress)

You've got Maalfeld Twins, Grave Titan, Grave Digger and Ghoulcaller Gisa in the list twice.

Craterhoof Behemoth is always a good addition to a token deck.

FYI Necromancer's Covenant technically came out before Karador. It's from Alara Reborn.

Either way, one way I've seen people spew out masses of zombie tokens is by using Ghoulcaller Gisa and cards like Soulless One/Lord of Extinction which works awesome with Karador since you can just recur the sacrificed creature over and over. Also, Vampire Aristocrat et al let you sac the tokens and then sac the aristocrat to Gisa for twice the number of tokens. Something to think about. White would end up mostly being for support/removal etc.
