Gravecrawler Discussion

Such a long list, I had to grab my laptop to make responding easier.

First off there was Bloodsoaked Champion and Bloodghast, both of these are 2/1s with no really scary ability. If they die they will be back in my hand, however they will die easily so I think without them I would be fine. Same thing with Gravecrawler

Xathrid Necromancer is in the maybeboard, trying to get one. Cartel Aristocrat seems fun, especially with the (very) minor spirit theme as a sac outlet.

Desecration Demon I am unsure about how that card is, I have plenty of opponents so probably won't attack much. My friend is putting it in his Mono Black commander, I'll see how it does there. Also, just not a fan of Abyssal Persecutor

For Doom Blade and Victim of Night spot removal isn't too important in commander, board wipes are more preferred however Hero's Downfall kills planeswalkers, I'll add it.

Erebos, God of the Dead, okay so first off flavor win. Other than that not much special, I have a few ways to make 1/1s, Skullclamp would get me more cards than Erebos, God of the Dead, Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections all combined. However that is one card in 99 so might add one of the three.

Cabal Coffers eventually.

Whip of Erebos, I have the life gain alright and Sun Titan as well as the Doomed Necromancer I'm planning to get cover the reanimation.

I would add both Bloodsoaked Champion and Bloodghast. Bloodghast is just plain good in my opinion. I'm not sure how well he'd work with your commander's effect.

Bloodsoaked Champion on the other hand is a perpetual threat. Either they return it to your hand and you cast it for 1 mana, or they pay life and you cast it for 2. I think it could be an annoying card at worst.

Gravecrawler, Xathrid Necromancer, and Cartel Aristocrat as well could be very strong in here.

I'd pull Typhoid Rats to make room for 1 of the cards.

I also think a Desecration Demon and an Abyssal Persecutor could be good in here.

Good luck!

Some things you'll definitely want:

Xathrid Necromancer is a worse Rotlung Reanimator

Blasting Station for Thrull ETB triggers and keeping Endrek alive

Assault Suit for keeping Endrek alive while having greater than 6 thrulls

Orc Sureshot for Endrek

Gravecrawler, obviously, and maybe Risen Executioner

Death Denied is pretty great for avoiding "surprise, you've been visited by the angel of bojuka bog"

You should definitively include the Beetle as a 4-of! Here, it would be really great. If we're making it competitive, then I'd put some hand disruption or at least a bit more removals like Geth's Verdict. And the infamous monoblack devotion kings Gravecrawler and Geralf's Messenger as offers to MTG's gods. If you're willing to make it unbudget, Liliana of the Veil is a powerhouse. ;)

your discard will REALLY hurt burn, they're trying to effectively do 20 damage with 7 cards and 2-3 lands making them discard cards means you get time to catch up, meanwhile if you add 4 Lotleth Troll 4 Gravecrawler 4 Vengevine you will have the aggression to take advantage of their struggles

i'd ignore the worm harvest comment it's too slow

not enough creatures for Vengevine to ever recur you will need Gravecrawler and Lotleth Troll if you want maindeck answers to burn then you have it in Raven's Crime and inquisiton, remember vengevine is only when you CAST 2 or more creatures in a turn

Kris88 on What are some interesting new ...

3 days ago

Ok those ideas are interesting, I have noticed since the release of the new command cards it has influenced Modern. Grixis Twin just won the last SCG open for modern and G/R Dragons won the standard event. Collected Company has taken over standard it seems to me. I have been brewing with Gravecrawler Geralf's Messenger , Mind Slash using Gravecrawler to sac for hand disruption and tricky stuff. I do like Thoughtseize as well but im looking for new ways to make my opponent discard. perhaps throw in Waste Not

The only thing I'm curious about is Nether Traitor. I feel like maybe Gravecrawler would fit the list better.
