Ghoulcaller's Bell Discussion

See Beyond is a must.

Ghoulcaller's Bell is so slow, too. I'd completely cut out all the creatures, too, for more fog and card draw. They don't help you win, really, and if you're fogging anyway, blocking doesn't matter. You definitely shouldn't be aiming to win with damage if you're doing turbofog.

@Megalomania Thanks for your comment!

Im currently using Psychic Network instead of Field of Dreams as they are functionally similar and drastically different in price. My playgroup have allowed this as it also quite a funny card and not game breaking.

The main wincon at the moment is a Dramatic+Scepter combo creating infinite untaps. I can utilise this to mill everyone out with one of my lantern pieces then pass turn. Though I do like to utilise Nightveil Specter to use an opponents deck Vs them.

Multiplayer really does restrict Lantern's effectiveness. The trick is to let them play their deck and not lock them out. Just control the bits that are a threat directly to yourself. It usually pans out to be a "Go on.. you can have that" and have an ally for a turn or two.

Thank you for the card suggestion! Future Sight does look interesting as an effect to try to benefit against my own Ghoulcaller's Bell effects. I will give it a go and the magus that goes with it.

Ghoulcaller's Bell is another mill card to use; and with Sensei's Divining Top, you'll know what it is that's hitting the grave.

I like the combo of Lantern of Insight and Ghoulcaller's Bell when running Daxos. My deck is focused more on the utility of the commander as opposed to pumping it up; and it's budget, about a hundred bucks. Maybe you'll find other cards you like within.

rwking082 thanks! Lazav is a fiend.

Ah, it didn't even cross my mind Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank was a combo, sweet. Will likely add Duskmantle to give it a couple angles.

I played a bunch of games with this yesterday and it definitely needs some work. As much as I love the idea of giving Lazav a sword or a hammer, the voltron theme is way too inconsistent here since the only thing I want to equip is the Witch-King himself and he comes down way too late in my opinion with him costing 4 coloured mana to cast and 4cmc in the first place.

So I think I'll go more into mill and graveyard stuff. I'm going to try out a heavy clone theme with Mirror Gallery, so I can make an army of Lazav, Dimir Mastermind's. Or The Scarab God's, or Sheoldred, Whispering One's haha. Come check back in a couple weeks if you like :)

At this stage I still like the little mill artifacts as I just love the feeling of tapping Ghoulcaller's Bell with Lazav out and seeing if any goodies pop up. Want this to be more of a gimicky fun deck than a mill deck, but will test it out with some of the stronger mill cards from your list.

Thanks heaps for the suggestions, +1'ing your Lazav too.

I love it! Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is one of my favorite commanders. Add to it the Witch-King theme and I'm sold.

I'd recommend Duskmantle Guildmage to make your Mindcrank plus Bloodchief Ascension combo slightly more reliable and add a little toolbox to your deck.

Traumatize and Fraying Sanity is a scary combo and is a win condition (well, a kill condition) if your opponent has an even number of cards in their deck when you cast it.

Rise of the Dark Realms is a great finisher, especially if you're milling a lot.

Telemin Performance might serve your deck well. Mill them and steal a creature all in one spell! It's particularly amusing against decks with few to no creatures.

I've never been a fan of Codex Shredder and Ghoulcaller's Bell. They don't draw any hate largely because they only mill one at a time. You can get a card in a graveyard per turn (or a few more with Ghoulcaller's Bell), but you could get a little more bang for your buck with something else.

Here's my take on Lazav: Your Cards Are Trash. It's mill-themed and does a surprisingly good job of it. I can usually mill one opponent out per game and can win with what I steal and copy. Take a look and harvest it for some cards and ideas.

Ghoulcaller's Bell and Pyxis of Pandemonium will work in tandem with Lantern of Insight to manipulate topdecks for Daxos.

Is there a Sheoldred, Whispering One sitting in the graveyard of a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck? Let Guiding Spirit retrieve it for you.

Maybe add in Codex Shredder or Ghoulcaller's Bell? That way you could send stuff to the top and then get rid of it forever. Cool deck!
