Glissa, the Traitor Discussion

Pygmyrhino990 on Death strike

I have a rather alright first strike deathtouch deck, What I see you're missing is odrich lunarch marshal and Glissa, the Traitor. Typhoid Rats works wonders as does Pharika's Chosen. Otherwise Glissa is a must have

If you're already considering Silas, then why not go with him and Reyhan and for-realzies play two of the commanders that are on your list. I think they're disjoined enough that you won't raise eyebrows until it's too late.

This sounds like a very interesting and complex deck: dredge/counters/maybe artifacts. Depending on how far you dive into the artifact subtheme, you may be interested in Glissa, the Traitor. Or you could go for the #1 boss of dredge/counters: The Mimeoplasm. Plus, don't forget his friend Skullbriar. And if you end up using this many legendary creatures in a dredge/counters/artifact deck, please consider Heroes' Podium.

I hope all that rambling was helpful.

Youre gonna need Collected Company for this deck to be anywhere near competitive enough in the modern meta. Since youre running black and some artifacts, you should comsider Glissa, the Traitor for the first strike deathtouch; plus she tutors with company. Also, look into Throne of the God-Pharaoh for when you swing out. You could also add Chord of Calling for more tutor and trigger on throne.

@Odysseus_97 sometimes its just better to get rid of the graveyard altogether. Say somebody plays Glissa, the Traitor or Daretti, Scrap Savant. You need to hate out their whole graveyard rather than picking their weak creatures. Many times Bojuka Bog can be a game saver.

Additionally, all the things are in the graveyard by the time you get to choose targets, so, for example, if your opponent controls a Wind Drake and you control a Phyrexian Metamorph that's a copy of Glissa, the Traitor and your opponent casts Wrath of God, the ability of the Glissa copy will trigger and be able to target the Phyrexian Metamorph in the grave that's the source of the trigger.

I had some questions about the interactions that occur between Glissa, the Traitor's second (triggered ability) and some situational effects.

First off, what if Glissa is destroyed at the same time as a creature an opponent controls? (For example, both Glissa and an opponent's Wind Drake die at the same time). Would I get the trigger?

Also, what would happen if multiple creatures an opponent controls are destroyed at the same time? Let's say a Gaze of Granite destroys two of the opponent's Grizzly Bears. Would I get one or two triggers?

This'd be great to know for a Glissa EDH deck. Thanks in advance!


Flagellum on Gitrog Monster or Ishkanah, Grafwidow?

Gitrog is a lot better than Ishkanah in terms of competitiveness. However, it comes down to do you want to combo or aggro? Neither of those two will be very "original" par se. Mr. Frog relies on the Dakmor Salvage loop and Ishkanah is limited to spiders for the most part (and not a well-supported tribe). So Hypnotoad will let ya win a lot more than Ishkanah, but you might step on your friend's toes. But between the two I'd go for the horny toad. There are other Golgari generals you could run.

Other Golgari generals of note:

Meren of Clan Nel Toth is another Golgari general who is great, but also overplayed. Glissa, the Traitor, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf stax, or Varolz, the Scar-Striped for your dredging + scavenge needs. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is another one but is very mana intensive.
