Gisa and Geralf Discussion

DarkestLight9 on You Kill and You Die, or You Die and You Kill

I was quite shocked to find Zombie Apocalypse absent from your deck. Also, Mogis, God of Slaughter would be a great control/bleed option. Maybe add Coat of Arms and Gisa and Geralf you're using a hard tribal. Add Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker for non-creature control.

i'd personally swap out x2 Rancid Rats for Prized Amalgam

you'd also benefit from running x2 Gisa and Geralf.

Imprisoned in the Moon doesnt do you much good here, so that would be the first card i would cut.

Fatal Push for removal

and lastly one or two more islands wouldn't hurt, but no more than that

Your Key to the City isn't doing much for your deck at the moment. So, I'd say that you can replace some land with that possibly. For the control side of things, I'd recommend to take out your Insidious Will and replace it with a straight counter spell that's cheaper like Broken Concentration. It's cheaper and I think you'd get more use out of it.

I'd also recommend somehow getting your cmc down and finding a way to get Gisa and Geralf in there. He would take advantage of the Prized Amalgam that you have there as well as just being able to cast your zombies out of your graveyard.

If you're going to use Diregraf Colossus, you need more zombies. Right, now his ability is only triggered by maybe two creatures. So, it's either change your plan or get more zombies. It really depends on what you have in mind.

if you dip into blue you can add in Rooftop Storm and make all your Zombie creatures free to cast leaving your mana for other important cards. but in order to do that you have to have Gisa and Geralf. but by adding blue you will have more resources to choose from.

@bushido_man96 with Rooftop Storm, you should be able to freecast zombies with Gisa and Geralf's ability as well as Gravecrawler. That's why Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar work so well with Rooftop Storm and Gravecrawler/ your commander

I've been thinking about it for a while, and I left out Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar, and I think I may need those for sac outlets and combos, especially if Rooftop Storm is taken out.

Also, a question about Rooftop Storm. Does its ability work with the cards I cast from the graveyard with Gisa and Geralf, and with Gravecrawler's ability? Both abilities are a "casting," just from an alternate zone, it should count, right?

I just slapped this deck together on paper after watching a deck tech video and searching at I want to run some graveyard recursion with Gisa and Geralf, build a token army, and use it for combos and swinging with a bunch of tokens. The page is a little rough, but please, any suggestions would be appreciated!

I'm trying to come up with a better name, too.

ghoul_Legion already pointed out a lot of really great advice so i won't repeat them here, but as for what he was saying about knowing what you want your zombies to do, that part of building the deck is very important. based off of the deck being built around lily, is it safe to assume that a zombie army isn't too far off from what you imagined?

that being said, some creatures that would work well in that regard are:

Cryptbreaker He's a cheap one mana creature that will help with building board state with tokens and give you extra card draw later in the game

Diregraf Colossus is crazy good in tribal zombies. you'll get so many tokens from the ETB effects alone, and the more zombies you have in your grave the stronger he is when he gets cast

Relentless Dead is great for a few reasons. he is hard to kill as he can just jump back into your hand. can revive other zombies when he dies. and on top of that he has menace which is nice.

since youre running blue, it opens up cards like

Gisa and Geralf which is almost a must run with zombies. that way you can keep those zombies coming back each turn

Prized Amalgam combos nicely with Gisa and Geralf making it virtually a two for one which is nice

good luck
