Gisa and Geralf Discussion

The__Worthy2000 on Necropowered Army

I like it, but I've gotten to thinking: Maybe Esper Zombies is a better route. Let me explain.

With liliana, death's majesty, recursion is at your disposal. So what if you splashed blue for things like Prized Amalgam or Gisa and Geralf, or even Relentless Dead for all of the recursion at your disposal. That way, Zombies will be coming out of nowhere and steal the win. I'm thinking of doing this myself, so I'll let you know how it goes :)

Dread Return is a great card to self-mill into. With flashback, you can simply sacrifice three random Zombies you've created to reanimate something super powerful.

Wonder gives all your creatures flying from your graveyard; synergises well with your theme of self-mill, and especially good since Sidisi will be creating a ton of Zombies.

Even if it isn't a Zombie tribal list, Diregraf Captain is worth including simply because he pumps all the tokens made by Sidisi.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord returns himself from your graveyard at the price of two lands, but the other important part is that he gets a p/t boost equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard (which will be quite a lot).

Cryptbreaker turns all your Zombies into card draw; excellent in a board stall where you have a ton of zombies but no one wants to attack.

Gisa and Geralf do a little self-milling on etb, but they also allow you to directly cast Zombies from your graveyard, which is a fair portion of your creatures.

Splendid Reclamation returns all the lands you've milled over the course of game, often ramping you for a bajillion in the process.

Victimize lets you put a useless or choice creature into your graveyard, then reanimate two fatties that will help close out games.

Fluttersky on Amonkhet Zombies

Gisa and Geralf? I know they're legendary but they can help reanimate your dead zombies.

I'm not a fan of unearth especially when zombies have such an easy time coming back without being exiled afterwords. I'm also not sure what red really adds to zombies. I would highly recommend looking into amonkhet and orzhov since that brought us more white zombie stuff and there is Necromancer's Covenant. Otherwise Gisa and Geralf and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born are strong and give rooftop access. Geth is really cool too if you want that route but limits you to black.

Personally I recommend Sedris, (maybe even his buddy Thraximundar) But the colour advantage you get is really nice, and the addition of blue gives you a lot of cool/fun options. Like for example Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, Diregraf Captain, and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Red even splashes in some fun with Deathbringer Thoctar, Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, Impact Tremors, and even some fun thievery like Zealous Conscripts. Heck red even throws in the addition of Artifact removal, something Black and blue lack in. Vandalblast, Rakdos Charm, and By Force would all be nice additions.

Hi! I've just posted my own B/U Zombie deck and it's interesting to compare with yours. But I use another commander - Gisa and Geralf, so the idea of my deck is to revive my creatures each turn.
Some ideas about your deck: try to add Entomb and Vampiric Tutor. It depends on budget of course but these tutors are among the best. Especially Entomb - it's designed for Reanimator decks. You can search and put into your graveyard such cards as Gravecrawler or Scourge of Nel Toth.
Then you should try Grimoire of the Dead. I like this artifact in EDH. By the way about artifacts. Your deck is Zombie tribal, so maybe you should think about Metallic Mimic?
I also think that you need more removal like Murder, Go for the Throat or Doom Blade.

If I decide to (re)build Gisa and Geralf, I'm going to shoe Liliana in. Right now, she's too expensive. I'll wait until her price plummets.

ThorTheDwarf on Sultai Zombies: Grind 'Em Unto The Grave

Yea, I was looking at my means of recursion for Prized Amalgam. So far, it's just Relentless Dead and Gravecrawler. Maybe I'll drop 2x Thought Scour for 2x Gisa and Geralf.
