Grave Titan Discussion

VexenX on [[Primer]]-God of the Rising FULL Moon! Butts Up!!

1 day ago

MegaMatt13: My Avg CMC is even better then you might think, because Curtains' Call and Gempalm Polluter are not really 6cmc when you think about it, which leave only Grave Titan, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Rooftop Storm at 6cmc in the deck. I top off with Army of the Damned of course, but that is way to good to remove!

There has been some discussion about removing Rooftop Storm, but it has done VERY good in my experience. My hand is OFTEN full because of all my draw, as well as my opting to use The Scarab God's reanimate instead of casting spells. Rooftop Storm allows me to save many for that ability, which really is a big deal in this deck! I am running 20 zombies, which seems like enough to keep it in.

Daedalus19876: Thanks man! The Scarab God has really allowed for tribal zombies to really be a power-house in commander. Both Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Gisa and Geralf are good, but they have nothing on the power level of The Scarab God!!!

freakingShane on Meren's Friends are Dead, Push Her to the Edge

I apologize for the following novel..:

Like mentioned above, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would be a great include. Pair that up with Cabal Coffers and you get stupid ramp. I also see that Toxic Deluge is in the maybe board, but I would definitely suggest putting that right into the deck. Super powerful and easy to cast.

It looks like you have the infinite combo (Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar), the Mike & Trike combo, and the Necrotic Ooze combo, but I notice you took out Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord.

He, himself, enables another powerful combo that I think you should include because you include all of the other pieces and redundancy (to an extent) is key. With how the stack works, you can:

  1. Exile cards off the top of your library until Phyrexian Devourer's ability is put onto the stack
  2. In response to the ability, continue exiling cards to continue pumping him up
  3. Still before allowing the sacrifice trigger to resolve, sac Devourer to Jarad and hit all your opponent(s) for as many cards you had in your deck (similarly to the Necrotic Ooze combo)

The bonus to this combo is that it gets around hexproof players and graveyard hate, so if someone has Leyline of Sanctity or Leyline of the Void they still can't avoid/prevent this.

Reverie42 on Meren of Clan Nel Toth

A few Meren standards that you may consider:

Relatively affordable stuff:

Medium Price stuff:

Expensive options are Sheoldred, Whispering One and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. They're $20+, but they're both utterly bonkers.

Also, as just a side note, I love the It That Betrays. I added one of those too. I recognize that in real games it's not really amazing. But it's just so much fun that it gets a slot forever for the random times that it just wrecks everything.

Reverie42 on Brad's Saskia: Do You Like Violence

4 days ago

A few non-standard includes here that I think are neat:

The mana base here seems extremely greedy. Only 1 mana rock and 36 lands for a 4.2 average CMC just seems a little too inconsistent.

Some possible adds:

Possible cuts:

  • Heliod, God of the Sun is msotly just going to be a vigilence enabler. I think its 4-mana "make one kind of crappy token" ability is a trap in Saskia (even though I love it in other decks)
  • Sire Of Insanity seems worse at doing its job than the Conqueror's Flail that you removed from the stock list. Saskia tends to hold more cards than you'd think.
  • Archetype of Aggression is mostly granting trample to things that aren't likely to use it very well. Most of your mass buffs that would make it useful grant trample anyway.
  • Lurking Predators with only 29 creatures and no other top manipulation seems pretty ambitious. I get that it can filter away lands, but I can't imagine where you wouldn't rather just draw a threat instead.
  • Mystic Barrier really hurts you when you have a wide board and draw mass pump. It's cute, and I fully support running it as a fun card, but it's usually going to hurt you more than help.
  • Mardu Strike Leader seems right on the edge of worth it. Seems like a meta call, but it probably wouldn't feel terrible to lose it.

Zinrius on Marchesa, the Black Rose

5 days ago

Hi, like yours, my Marchesa deck is more casual, no infinite combos, tutors and alike, I like the idea of putting Grave Titan and Toxic Deluge in my deck, maybe looking at mines you can get some nice ideas, too.

My marchesa deck

A card that I find amusing is Bearer of the Heavens, once you got your board stabilized, marchesa and a few other creatures, you can throw that guy in, sacrifice him and pass the turn, to have everything get destroyed and then have your creatures come back.

Hybrow on Rise of the Scarab God

I love zombie Tribal, I am running The Cranberries with an eyepatch... couple suggestions for cards i love in my deck:

Fleshbag Marauder is great, you can sac him as he comes into play, and then if you can recur him, you get a second ETB effect out of him.

Grave Titan although not a Zombie, his ability to create more would sync very nicely with your God, and again, his ETB effect is great when you bring him back.

Sepulchral Primordial -- Again, not a zombie, but he is kinda on theme with pulling creatures out of graves

Rooftop Storm - clutch card if you can get a fist full of zombies and pump them all out at once.

Moonlight Bargain great tutor for a deck with grave recursion, you put the ones you want into your hand, and the zombies can go into your grave to be drawn out later

Reality Shift - Ok, its not zombie themed, but I do mention it as a great way to get rid of pesky indestructible guys.

Liliana's Mastery I dont know how much enchantment destruction your group plays with, but I find this lives longer than any zombie lord I ever play.

NiTRoBoX on Glissa's Necromonicon

Some changes I thought off:

Mishra's Bauble > Sylvan Library much better draw\deck control.

Rescue from the Underworld > Defense of the Heart most likely opponent will have 3 creatures.

Grim Haruspex > Graveborn Muse seems like a better card draw, need to see if I have enough zombies\not too much.

Soul of the Harvest > Grave Titan feels like a good change as I need zombies and I need more creatures for sacrifice.

Merciless Executioner and Grave Titan work wonders in my meren deck u can check it out if u want. Basically you want to fill your graveyard with big creatures and kill small ones and bring them back out in the begining (:
