Gravedigger Discussion

Sweet commander!

Have you played with Cadaver Imp or Gravedigger? Apart from recursion, they're fun to loop with Altar of Dementia (or Altar of the Brood) and Deathrender.

To test with even more shenanigans, have you considered a package like this:

That gives you a sac outlet or two, a permanent source of recursion, a token-maker, and way to loop and clear opponents' boards of hexproof, indestructible, and shrouded creatures without going infinite.

Have fun playing!

Cool idea, Reba04.

Not sure if you're open to suggestions, and if not, go ahead and just skip over the rest of this post =)

I'd look into adding some more 2 and 3 cost creatures to smooth your mana curve out. having a hand full of 5/6/7 drops in your opening hand feels bad... and if the Magic Gods treat you anything like they treat me, it's going to happen. A lot.

2 CMC: Gifted Aetherborn(probably the best, but requires which can get weird) Adanto Vanguard(give you something to do with all the life you're gaining and hard to remove if you're willing to pay)

3 CMC: Yahenni, Undying Partisan... there isn't much on this slot. Maybe Legion Conquistador to fill your hand back up with creatures.

I'd pull out about 4 lands, 2Deathless Ancient(expensive for what it does and the body isn't impressive for the mana cost. 4Gravedigger(same reasons), 2-4Queen's Agent(same reasons), 1Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle(he's legendary, so once you have one out, the rest in your hand are dead cards until they kill him), 2Liliana, Death Wielder(expensive to cast. doesn't synergize well with vampes since her abilities are -1/-1 counter up until the ultimate), and 2Vanquisher's Banner(I like this card but expensive to cast before it starts giving you benefits).

That's a lot of cards to pull... what else is going in?

Removal. 2-3Cast Out IMO runner-up for best removal in Standard. Cycling and a lot of decks don't play enchantment removal, so you can remove whatever it is... forever.Fatal Push and/or Walk the Plank Push IS the best removal... but pricey.

This is getting longer than I Anticipated... so I'll stop here. Sorry for the novel. Regardless, +1 from me, and keep brewing. Have you played this in paper yet? How's it been for you?

This is a cool take on Oloro.

I wonder if any of these cards might be fun to test in the deck?

If you are super into mill, there's also a janky Gravedigger, Cadaver Imp, Deathrender, Altar of Dementia combo you could include :)

Happy brewing!

Ok, first set of substitutions with the cards I had on hand:

Out: Transguild Promenade, Pulse of the Grid, Well of Ideas, Waterfront Bouncer, Probe, Gravedigger, Fallen Angel, Cephalid Broker, Pestilence Demon, Dromar, the Banisher.

In: Dromar's Cavern, Arguel's Blood Fast, Rhystic Study, Propaganda, Archfiend of Depravity, Kismet, Palace Siege, Treachery, Soothsaying, Sol Ring.

More changes to come. I plan to get the rest of the Maybeboard in here over the course of my next few orders. I probably should find some Signets to run in it, too.

Fun deck! You seem really aggressive, so I would take out expensive cards like Gravedigger, Liliana's Mastery, and Liliana, Death's Majesty in favor of some cheaper threats like additional Cursed Minotaur and Desiccated Naga. It will probably help you run smoother, as you'll more often be able to curve out properly. Also, if your curve becomes that low, you can probably cut the 23rd Swamp for an extra Skulduggery as well. Good luck!

Welcome to EDH! How's this format treating you so far? How is it in comparison to other formats? And I love that commander too, even the art is beautiful. And besides my suggestions to make the deck stronger, you should look at "https://edhrec.com" to check out all the orzhov commanders and what cards are good for this commander. Check out "http://www.smileylich.com/mtg/magocracy/Magocracy_G1.html" as well for anything you can't find in the gatherer database. And look at "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im1VuV7-qSI", I thought that was a fun theory but that could just be my interest in math.

Anyway, onto my arguments for a better deck. Like Mortify or Hero's Downfall instead of Murder? Or Unmake/ Ruthless Disposal v Eyeblight's Ending/ Bone Splinters? Gotta love that removal. Forsake the Worldly has become a favorite of mine, I was so happy to see that in your deck. There's also some other cards like Utter End, Pontiff of Blight, etc that fits your theme well. I also love non-combat victories, so I would add more cards like Zulaport Cutthroat and Debt to the Deathless.

Now onto the hard decisions. Like High Priest of Penance v Angel of Deliverance. Each has it's own pros and cons, but I thought I should argue for it. I would also replace Unraveling Mummy as it only supports Khenra Eternal and Gravedigger. I'd argue for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk instead. I like where you were going with Gravedigger though, everyone needs some recursion. I'd argue for Phyrexian Reclamation or Ravos, Soultender to keep with the recursion, or load up some reanimation with Dread Return, Stitch Together, or Phyrexian Delver to keep with the ETB (enter the battlefield) effects. And if you want another general theme for the deck, consider Panharmonicon or Skybind. Lastly, you could include an infinite combo to make it more competitive, like Emeria Shepherd + Kor Cartographer to ramp all your Plains out.

So yah. I still love the deck and upvoted it, I just wanted to argue some cards and be devil's advocate. Also, EDH is my favorite format and I'm always here, so text me if you've any questions or need more help. Hope this helps

Awesome deck. I'm going to use some of these ideas for my own. Thanks! Also, if you are planning on picking up cards for this I would recommend Gravedigger, Archaeomancer, and Eternal Witness as they are all creatures that have graveyard interaction so they trigger Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and work well with self mill.
