Gisa's Bidding Discussion

toastySmorc on Vampire EDH

Hi there! I worked on a very similar build before the Commander 2017 Series, and I have a few tips.

this Olivia is stronger as a Timmy Aggro general, so you want to have some brutally efficient early game, rather than cards like Dark Impostor, which are high value but very slow. Also, it would be much better for you to add vampires and vampire synergy, rather than Madness cards, as they are less efficient. Here are my recommendations

CUT: Archfiend of Ifnir, Dark Impostor, Insatiable Gorgers, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Stromkirk Occultist. Vampire Cutthroat, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Faith of the Devoted, Gibbering Descent, Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Blood Tribute, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive

ADD: Vampire Nocturnus, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Captivating Vampire, Olivia Voldaren, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Smuggler's Copter, Lightning Bolt, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Living Death, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Coat of Arms, Phyrexian Arena, Outpost Siege, Living Death.

I have to agree that The Scarab God would be a great addition. I'm going to remove Gisa's Bidding from the side and then make the swap for some playtesting, thank you for the suggestion!

If you look at Standard right now there's a deck that wins consistently with tokens, Zombies. Consider converting your deck into B/W Zombies with a main token theme. Wayward Servant can add a significant amount of life loss and life gain when duplicating Zombies tokens. Servant in combination with Zulaport Cutthroat would give you damage from both angles when Zombie tokens are created and when they die.

I suggest Zombies because they have a ridiculously good lord package right now with Lord of the Accursed and Liliana's Mastery. Both these cards give Zombie tokens a lot of reach. Because you care about making tokens Dark Salvation can pull double duty as a token maker and removal spell.

Possible List trying best to keep it budget (Untested):

I've included Cryptbreaker even though he is $4 a piece which might be out of your price range. He can be a constant Zombie token maker and a draw engine when using Zombies which is exactly what you want. Procession into Mastery does create a lot of power on the battlefield.

Good luck with your deck.

RedBuilder11 so you're suggesting removing Gisa's Bidding all together and adding a full playset of Fatal Push. Then maybe dropping Liliana to three of a certain one and adding one more Grasp of Darkness?

Seems like a pretty standard solid zombie list to me, however a few cards seem sub-par. In particular Gisa's Bidding is rather weak, considering your only synergy with it is Cryptbreaker, in which you still have to pay 5 mana to make that combo work. I'd also recommend cutting down on the numbers of both planeswalkers, probably to about 3-4 total depending on which of the 2 you prefer. With those cuts, you should finish off your playset of Liliana's Mastery, and add a couple more lands and some more removal such as Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness

I agree with pretty much everything said! It looks like you're going in the right direction, here's some more options to choose from incase you want more:

Allied ReinforcementsCaptain's ClawsOath of GideonDesolation Twin would be pretty sick as a finisher if you make it that long, probably not a good idea, but thought I'd mention if your local meta is slow.Ethereal Guidance or an instant equivalent could be sideboard-able in my opinionI also like me some one or two of's Unruly Mob and Inspiring Captain for the same reason, but don't let ANY creatures distract you from token generation, that is number one, any synergies that don't generate tokens are just icing on the cake. Focus on tokens FIRST.If you find you have great early game life gain Felidar Sovereign is an option as a one or two of.Call of the Bloodline Shamble Back From Under the Floorboards and Gisa's Bidding are all things in standard.

I'm not saying any of these will be the answer to your problems, but options are always a good thing, and you can mess around to see what works for you! Can't wait to see what you do!

You might could take out 1 From Under the Floorboards and 1 Gisa's Bidding for 2 Trespasser's Curse only because you are going to be making an ass ton of tokens with or without them. This is just my suggestion-- I am pretty new to magic as well.
