Grimgrin, Corpse-Born Discussion

KeroroLulu on Advertise your COMMANDER deck!

Hello ! I am new in tappedout and I need some advice for my new commander deck. I hope that I'm in the correct thread !I already made a deck in this site based on an Sidisi, Brood Tyrant commander deck. So here's my deck :


Sidisi, brood tyrant [EDH, Reanimator]

Commander / EDH* KeroroLulu

SCORE: 1 | 1 VIEW


I think that the biggest problem I have is my mana pool. With only 32 lands for an average mana curve of 5 I wont play at all. Even if I have Cryptolith Rite it's really not enough for me. I want to base my combo with those cards :Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (of course), Cryptolith Rite, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Tombstone Stairwell. The rest of my card should help to cast them, to cast token and put creatures in my graveyard. Ramunap Excavator should be enough for all the land put in the graveyard with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant abilitie

Why no Grimgrin, Corpse-Born? He blends seamlessly with your Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm combo to provide an infinitely large Grimgrin.

Sorry for the deluge, but Gravecrawler and Graveborn Muse are definite must haves for their utility.

Plus Gravecrawler makes pretty mean combo with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born.

Rakdos vs Atarka would honestly be a hell of a battle.

If I had to do a tag team match up, I'd say Rakdos, Lord of Riots+Malfegor vs. Sedris, the Traitor King+Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

GobboE,

First, thank you for taking the time to evaluate my deck and offer suggestions. Second, get outta here with your Bontu the Glorified shit. Not havin' it! Thanks again for the bounty of suggestions, I definitely have some things to think about.

I like the milling aspect of my deck because many of the mill cards hit multiple opponents. Combat can be difficult to balance in this sense. I wanted to have an even balance of heavy swingers as well as the possibility to mill my opponents to death. The deck can usually pull off either tactic, depending on which is needed.

While you're right about maybe dropping Corpse Harvester, I'm not sure about replacing it with Liliana's Mastery. The card is neat, and it buffs zombies, but I think I might go with either a Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, or Death Baron (if it ever drops in price). Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is a sac outlet as well as a heavy hitter, so I'm leaning that direction at the moment. While some may think that Sadistic Hypnotist doesn't belong in the deck, I must say that I can't disagree more. I've had opponents scoop just from consistent usage of his abilities. He also assists in filling the graveyard and culling the opponents' boards if I have something like Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos out.

I'm leaning more toward Door of Destinies rather than Coat of Arms, that way only my guys get the buff. While Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic are both good cards, I'm not sure if theyre worth replacing something in the deck with. Vela the Night-Clad's life loss thing is amazing with a basic sac outlet. If I find a much better inclusion (likely something in Ixalan, I'm sure), I'll drop her then, but until then, she's gotten me out of enough sticky spots to warrant her inclusion.

Lastly, while I agree that Bone Splinters needs to be dropped, I'm not sure if Urza's Incubator is the card to take its place. The chosen card type would, of course, be zombies, but there arent many creatures at allzombie or notin the deck that are over 6 mana. I'm thinking about another removal spell or boardwipe in its place, if anything.

I'm on the fence about Thought Vessel, since I like cards being in my graveyard anyway, but only if they're creatures, and only if I'm ok with permanently exiling them for a copy. If theres another card that I should include that's either a synergy-promoting zombie or a sweet-ass mill card, I'll switch it for that.

Thanks again for taking the time to read and comment, I appreciate the suggestions!

PS: Bontu the Glorified CAN ROT IN HELL!

Zaane2 on Marchesa the Immortal Rose

@Jaefarlii I appreciate you linking the credit to me in your description and I'm glad you've gotten Marchesa to a place that you can enjoy. As long as Marchesa is complete, all of my changes and updates will always be displayed here.

For starters, I think that the number of sac outlets you have is completely reasonable. I actually added even more to my list because I realized how heavily reliant I am on having one in play. You can't loop creatures and do shenanigans without a sac outlet, and having more than one in play makes it much harder to stop the value loops. I also stopped counting Sidisi, Undead Vizier and the like as Sac Outlets because they're not repeatable. The value loops only happen if you have one that's repeatable. It appeared that I had a lot more than I actually did because I was counting non-repeatable sac outlets into the total number. Once I added more repeatable ones, my loops became much more consistent.

A few things in that thread are also outdated. I had to cut Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Greater Gargadon because, while they were fun, they weren't insanely good. As my list has become more and more tuned, I've had to drop things that were more fun than good when looking for space. You can see my current list reflecting that.

Lastly, I wouldn't consider Expedition Map as Ramp. Map acts as Mana-fixing rather than Mana-ramp. However, I do think it's always a good idea to run Map in Decks that really want to abuse Cabal Coffers.

If you need anything else, just let me know.
