I hear you but to define it as a Tutor and not recursion is like saying Gisa and Geralf cant be your zombie tribal cmdr because they are not zombies

Its clearly both recursion and tutor, but mostly a tutor. I get it, it's not that good classified as recursion but the added tutor does make it a good card

Let's not forget that if X is 10 or more it can become a win con

Sweet Deck! If you're trying to make the deck more competitive, I would suggest cutting Gisa and Geralf, Rescue from the Underworld, Sultai Soothsayer, and most of the artifact ramp for cheaper ramp that doubles as creatures for Sidisi hits, like Deathrite Shaman, Elves of Deep Shadow, and the like.

Thank you for your suggestions NV_1980! I really dig your deck, especially since this deck started out as a Gisa and Geralf deck too and came a long way from there by using The Scarab God for quite a while and now making a jump into the Grixis pool. I used to run the altars but I found out early, I don't want to run most of the infinite combos because I neither have efficient outlets for infinite mana nor did I want to win with infinite tokens since they just get wiped during the next turns before I am able to swing with them.

I could still go for infinite drain with Rooftop Storm Gravecrawler Carrion Feeder and Diregraf Captain, but my main gameplan was always to swing with my army (since I already got plenty of combostuff in my other decks) and Marchesa, the Black Rose provides haste and inbuilt recursion and thus seemed fitting and worth a try to me :)

I like the idea of having the plan B of milling your opponents. This way your commander has more targets and Rise of the Dark Realms becomes so much spicier.

For this I’d suggest running cards that fill your opponent’s hands and graves using cards like Font of Mythos/Howling Mine, Fascination, and Anvil of Bogardan. This sets up explosive combos with cards like: Psychic Corrosion, Dreamborn Muse, and Windfall/Jace's Archivist.

Another suggestion I have is to run Phyrexian Altar. It’s 1. a sac outlet 2. Ramp 3. a whole lot of fun with Gravecrawler. He combos with the altar giving you infinite 2/2s with Diregraf Colossus and infinite Altar of the Brood triggers.

Big finishers cost a lot so Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers got you covered. Running the two I believe always calls for a handy Expedition Map. Cut some basics, easy.

Things I’d cut for the 9 cards I mentioned would be: Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (see above), Liliana's Mastery (too much for too little)), Dark Salvation (same reason), Sinister Sabotage (same reason), Expropriate (cut for something that synergies with your general. Take a cooler Rise over some stolen permanents), Ancient Excavation (Dreamborn Muse tho), Liliana, Untouched By Death (the best part about her Gisa and Geralf do already), Entomb (not sure about this one actually), and a land.

Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

P.S. Traumatize

thewyzman on Zombie tribal?

Are zombies viable in EDH as a tribe? I'm not talking about some combo deck with a couple zombies in it, I'm talking lords, synergies, and flavor.

Dimir seems to be the most basic colors with some versatility (but are Gisa and Geralf and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born really good enough for multiplayer metas?). Going grixis opens up more options like Sedris, the Traitor King as commander and the looting mechanic red is so generous with. Hell, I'm sure there's even a market out there for 5-color zombies (I just don't have a good enough land base for this)!

At any rate, has anyone played or seen some LEGIT zombie tribal decks for multiplayer format?? Discuss.

It's always good to see a fellow Gisa and Geralf player; they're a pretty underrated commander imo. You've got a lot of combo pieces and a lot of bombs, but you could use some more tempo/acceleration and maybe another land or two. Necromancer's Stockpile gives tokens and card advantage in one package. Undead Augur and/or Distant Melody can yield big payoffs with your token strategy. You could also use Sedraxis Alchemist + Rooftop Storm + sac-oulet, instead of Cyclonic Rift. Does the same thing but most people never see it coming and the alchemist is a lot cheaper.

Also, I love the addition of Soulquake and now I have to find a way to fit that into my Gisa and Geralf.
