Gisa and Geralf Discussion

devastated-heart on The Gisa and Geralf Show (staring Scarab Bob)

Hey! Apologies in advance for the shameless self-advert, but I recommend you take a quick look at my Zombie deck Another Zombie Apocalypse?. It's a pretty cut-and-dry Mono-Black Zombies deck, and should have a few good ideas you could pull from it.

Outside of that, I highly recommend using Havengul Lich. It doesn't seem like much at first, but another Gisa and Geralf is always a good thing, right (And this one is a Zombie!)?

If you ever feel like throwing away all of your friends, try adding Rooftop Storm. Makes all your Zombinos free, allowing for some pretty great shenanigans with Gisa, Geralf, and the Lich. ;)

My friend runs a deck almost like this. He runs B/U zombies with the only blue cards being The Scarab God and Gisa and Geralf.

His black cards im sideboard are a little different though. He still runs he lilianas sideboard, and also the skysovereign and nevers. He runs 2 of Flaying Tendrils for weenie decks. He also runs 1 copy of Torment of Hailfire only for game he knows last forever.

What do you think of Gisa and Geralf or The Scarab God? Blue and black have the most card draw, two color mana bases are pretty easy, and they both have graveyard value. If you're not into zombies, Hanna, Ship's Navigator has good recursion, and Bruna, Light of Alabaster fits what you're going for if you want voltron.

The problem I see with the Gift is, that it contradicts the other goals of the deck.

  1. The cost is pretty high. There are decks that really try to get the gift out as soon as possible with a graveyard that's full with creatures with good ETB effects.
  2. Diregraf Colossus doesn't trigger with the Gift, since your not casting anything. Also you are emptying out your own graveyard, so he will have less +1/+1 counters.
  3. Once the Gift "fake eternalizes" a creature it's in exile. So Gisa and Geralf can't get it back, and again the Colossus likes to have some zombies in the 'yard.

I think God-Pharaoh's Gift is a really cool build-around card, but you have to design the whole deck around it to fully take advantage of it. Mainly with self-milling (Champion of Wits & Strategic Planning), Refurbish and Gate to the Afterlife. Also some nice creatures like Angel of Invention to hit really hard.

All great points.

I think I am taking a little bit of Sedris, the Traitor King and playing that graveyard game with this deck. He is my main EDH deck currently, and I really like the idea of discarding zombies to the graveyard. Then the off chance I can't have The Scarab God bring them out, at least I have a way of bringing them back with Gisa and Geralf and Havengul Lich.

Dralnu, Lich Lord is more for just overwhelming with Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse.I don't have the worry of Blasphemous Act in my playgroup, but that is a good card to be worried about. It could really mess the flow up.

I'll continue playtesting what I have and keep an eye on this deck to see if there are any other things you update that may fit into my playing style. Thanks again!

Also, nine EDH decks, I don't know how you find the time to build them. I have one more I am working on. Zurgo Helmsmasher will be mostly speed and giving him to my opponents with Assault Suit so they can keep the pressure on. I can see him getting out of control fairly quickly so it will be nice to have another deck to lean on when they get annoyed with that. Venser, Shaper Savant didn't make many friends. I ended up busting it up after a few games when I kicked Rite of Replication on Magmatic Force with 8 players. Needless to say, it was a downer for the rest of the table.

I would put in one more The Scarab God and two more Gisa and Geralf. I would take out a few one drops to improve mana curve

Consider Scrapheap Scrounger? He has great synergy with Prized Amalgam and is a good discard for Cryptbreaker's ability. Although he isn't a Zombie I would cut Monument for him.

I think you want Liliana's Mastery main deck because the card is bonkers with Zombies. Consider cutting 1x The Scarab God and 1x Gisa and Geralf for 2x Mastery.

I would cut 1x Westvale Abbey  Flip and 1x Island for 2x more Swamp. I think 2x Abbey is one too many because it can't make black mana.
