Gisa and Geralf Discussion

Poseidon847 Liliana Vess isn't a standard legal card so I can't use it in this deck but it I agree it is a great card. I like Wailing Ghoul and Tree of Perdition but I feel I'm pretty set on the creatures that I have. Plus I can get more cards in the yard with the abilities of Gisa and Geralf, Cryptbreaker, Geralf's Masterpiece, and Haunted Dead. I may have to try out the Strange Augmentation in this deck it could be useful to swell up my creatures. I originally had Murder in the sideboard but I like Ruinous Path better as it deals with planeswalkers as well for the same price. I have Murderous Compulsion in the main because of its madness cost which is viable with the discard abilities of the previously stated cards. Thanks for the suggestions and thanks for looking.

BlaineTog Gisa and Geralf were definitely considered. But after play testing them, they turned out to be pretty useless. Putting the top four cards into my graveyard came in handy, but I can cast most of my creatures from the graveyard already. So having them was kinda redundant.

But you're right. I seriously need some removal. Grasp of Darkness is certainly gonna be put in here now, and maybe even Dark Salvation. Even if I only get 3 zombies out with Dark Salvation, I'll probably definitely be killing something, plus I'll have a couple of body bags.

Gisa and Geralf seems like a slam-dunk inclusion for this deck since it makes discards much less punishing. It even mills you when it comes down.

You also need at least some removal, so either Grasp of Darkness or Dark Salvation would seem to make the most sense. Even Voldaren Pariah  Flip might work, allowing you to kill off some cheap creatures in exchange for your opponent's best guys, and you might even be able to Madness it in later on in the game.

To me this deck seems to want to be either a Zombie deck or a control deck with Undead Alchemist. I wonder how this performs. Seems to be a lot of 1/1's and not a lot of ways to protect them. Have you thought about making this more of a control deck? I don't have any specific suggestions off hand, just concerned on the number of mana dorks and only 1 win-con. Would suggest going with more of a control feel, maybe Relentless Dead, or a mechanism to throw cards into the grave and use Gisa and Geralf...

Tasigur, the Golden Fang is really cool to start with. There's U for card draw and counters, B for removal and G for ramp and dumb creatures.

Leovold, Emissary of Trest is probably a better control commander because he disincentives your opponents from targeting your things and doesn't let them draw extra cards. G has a ton of land tutoring like Sylvan Scrying, Crop Rotation as well as generic stuff like Expedition Map and other G land stuff like Life from the Loam that you can combine with Geier Reach Sanitarium during their upkeep so they don't ever draw for turn.

Gisa and Geralf and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born let you do zombie tribal or something.

I love me some good ol' zombie tribal! Deck looks like a lot of fun! I run a similar style deck with Gisa and Geralf at the helm. I'm not sure what your budget is but I do have a few suggestions (budget-pending):

I would consider adding in the following zombies:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
Death Baron
Zombie Master + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth = unblockable zombies!
Prized Amalgam
Shepherd of Rot
Balthor the Defiled
Vengeful Dead (really hurts if you go infinte sac with Gravecrawler)

I feel these zombies can help replace some of the weaker members of your horde like the following:

Abattoir Ghoul
Gavony Unhallowed
Returned Phalanx
Stitcher Geralf

Along similar lines, I see that you have some reanimation spells in your deck however, if your budget allows, I would make the upgrade to some of the following:

Dread Return
Living Death
Rise of the Dark Realms
Beacon of Unrest

Best of luck!
