Gisa and Geralf Discussion

maxon on Dissatisfaction with the way I ...

10 hours ago

Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a deck I had a lot of fun creating and playing. If you get the numbers right, you should be able to ping one of the players who hasn't cast a creature yet and get rakdos out on turn 4. Then on your next swing, you crack the biggest threat in the head for 6 commander and spew out as many fatties as you have (or want to cast). On turn 5 you could conceivably cast 2 or 3 big baddies. Life totals will drop fast.

Another deck I run is Gisa and Geralf. It's not so much built to win as it is a way for me to address my zombie lust. It does end up putting a lot of pressure out though, and has gotten it's fair share of wins. The number of good zombies is basically endless, and with enough self milling in the deck, a Laboratory Maniac can be a fun way to auto win. Your wallet will take a hit though if you want the best of the zombie cards/lords and don't already have them. At least you only need one copy.

Ashnod's Altar and Altar of Dementia as a sac outlet. Waste Not is a card i recently added to mine. I can't believe you aren't running Victimize. Same with Buried Alive, its essential to the deck.Personally, i run Scourge of Nel Toth mostly because it can come back on its own without Gisa and Geralf.

Feel free to take a look at my version of this deckZombie Tribal

Hi MegaMatt13 thanks for all suggestions. I saw your deck and i like it, but my version is a little different than yours, because i'm not concentrate in massive survival, i want to prefer take more value of my cards casting with Gisa and Geralf when zombies have already died or they were descarted.

I tried Fact or Fiction, but I prefer Frantic Search because it's more tempo in my game.sometimes I had Fact or Fiction in my hand and i prefered play another zombie or cast something from my graveyard.

I have got buy Monastery Siege and test it.

Vengeful Dead I tested him but i didn't like because I considerer him poor in stats.

And finally i didn't prefer blue zombies because i can take value with Balthor the Defiled , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Crypt of Agadeem.

Sorry about my english, currently i'm learning.

I hope you can understand me.

is Haakon, Stromgald Scourge worth it for Nameless Inversion and Glen Elendra Liege? I don't think Glen Elendra Liege is worth it at all even with Haakon.

Not sure if you have enough support for the Zombie subtheme. I'd go one way or the other with it. My initial thought is you're not getting enough value from it and you should either add more or get rid of it entirely. Gisa and Geralf, Graveborn Muse, Possessed Skaab

Dralnu scares me. I can see a deck being built around him but as a part of the 99, I think he'd backfire more than help.

Dragonlord Silumgar, Oona, Queen of the Fae, and Sire of Stagnation all seem a bit too much good-stuff for my tastes.

Sheoldred, the Whispering One rarely works out for me. Either she dies/exiled quick or she gets stolen/copied and it turns bad for me.

Hedron Crab might be a touch too slow compared to your other mill effects

I really want to like Disciple of Deceit (especially with Phenax) but it's the same mana cost. If it were same mana cost or less, I'd be all about it.

Can you get enough value out of Reassembling Skeleton?

Think Twice seems like a slam dunk replacement for Forbidden Alchemy

blackhawk22, I think I'm picking up what you're putting down. Cards like Gisa and Geralf and Havengul Lich will help me avoid that awkward "Oh, I paid mana to get this back to my hand and now I can't play it," feeling. Cemetery Reaper's ability will help take advantage of my yard as well, even if I cant play something for some reason. Would you think Tasigur, the Golden Fang would be worth putting back in?

Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Ezuri, Claw of Progress might make good additions to your deck. Brawn and Wonder both make great cards to discard or let Sidisi, Brood Tyrant mill and get their abilities.Morbid Curiosity with some of your Grave Pact type of cards could mean a great value. Novijen, Heart of Progress seems like good deck tech. High Market is a good way for you to get a little life back. Blighted Woodland is actually better than it looks. Perpetual Timepiece helps with your self mill. Elixir of Immortality in case you go too hard on the self mill. The Gitrog Monster because he's annoying af. Nyx Weaver more graveyard manipulation. Massacre Wurm is good. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord possible win con. Gisa and Geralf need to be able to use your graveyard as a resource. Zombie Apocalypse. Deadbridge Chant let's you use your graveyard as resource.Mikaeus, the Unhallowed so good. Risen Executioner another buff on a stick. Splinterfright more self mill. Evanescent Intellect let's sidisi mill without swinging. Extractor Demon could give you self mill your help you mill out an opponent.Mirror-Mad Phantasm and Hermit Druid both synergize well with sidisi. Laboratory Maniac as a safety net if you go too hard. Empty the Pits 4 mana plus your whole graveyard at an opponents end step could be stupid crazy. Eternal Witness grabbing what you need from your graveyard. Blood Artist makes all of those toekns even scarier as they are 2 point swings no matter what. Mesmeric Orb just have everyone mill. See the Unwritten this could do some work for you. Pharika's Mender another way to grab something from your graveyard. Deadwood Treefolk same as last card. Phyrexian Reclamation. Dig Through Time. Recollect. Praetor's Counsel all make your graveyard resource. Cellar Door. Eldrazi Monument. Distant Melody.Gaea's Blessing. Jarad's Orders.Unbreathing Horde. Lich Lord of Unx.

If you want your build to get seen, don't forget to add hubs to it in the editor like BUG/Sultai, Dredge, and reanimator. It'll help you get more input from the community.

That said, I don't know nothin about the frontier metagame and how fast or slow it is, so im just gonna vomit some ideas at you. Gisa and Geralf can mill 4 and let you cast some zombies, Haunted Dead can see consistent use being able to reanimate a bunch (at instant speed), having more artifact creatures can help turn on your delirium like Lupine Prototype, and you have the discard outlets to let it attack a bunch. Where Sidisi, Brood Tyrant benefits from you milling creatures into the grave The Gitrog Monster can benefit from milling lands, and Graveblade Marauder can be pretty nasty with a packed graveyard. Decimator of the Provinces can end games the turn it comes out, especially if you manage to go wide with sidisi. Then there's 'spencive cards like Grim Flayer and Polluted Delta, those will usually help. Smuggler's Copter will probably fit well for card advantage and filtering stuff into the graveyard.

It looks like you're trying to do a dimir zombie mill deck. If you look up blue/black zombies on the deck search then that should give you some good ideas to work off with blue/black zombies. But here are some good ones for most zombie decks that you don't have already, Cryptbreaker, Gisa and Geralf, Relentless Dead, From Under the Floorboards, Undead Alchemist, Rooftop Storm, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, Prized Amalgam are just a few to get you started. Hope that helps!
