Havengul Lich Discussion

Pikobyte on Muldrotha, the „Fun“ in „Funeral“ *Primer*

Hey sam171z,

Thanks for the love! I added an explanation of it to the description. I hope this helps. It’s quite complicated, but my playgroup banned instant-win-combos with 3 cards or less to make the games more fun. You could win much less complicated with Mikaeus and Triskelion if you want to. That also would make your Defense of the Heart an instant-win if it survives to your upkeep.

You can do a lot of damage with a non-infinite version of this combo too. With just Kokusho and Havengul Lich on the field you can play Phantasmal Image as a copy of Kokusho from your grave for 3 mana as often as you can pay it. This can deal like 15-20 damage to all opponents each turn and gaining you a ton of live.

Riverdare on Non-Zombie Grimgrin?

Wonder and Skullclamp would be an autoinclude. You could do some aristocrats style gameplay while grinding through little self-recurring dudes like Bloodghast, Reef Worm, and Bloodsoaked Champion while churning through your deck with Midnight Reaper or Grim Haruspex, draining everyone with Blood Artist effects and simultaneously clearing the board with Grave Pact effects (found a use for Ruthless Deathfang!)

Havengul Lich, Mimic Vat and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder honorable mentions.

You could include some mind control effects to sac for value. Dragonlord Silumgar and Roil Elemental have a special place in my heart. And while we're on the topic of ETB's you could run a few one-off etb/death guys like Ravenous Chupacabra, Mulldrifter (I believe you can evoke and sac the dude while the evoke sacrifice trigger is on the stack but don't quote me on that) the primordials and Keiga, the Tide Star.

You can link a user by typing [-[user:type name here]-] (Take out the hyphens)

This is the link to my old deck, I built it for my ex so it's on her page. This was about three years ago so there are cards I would definitely tune differently now.

You're Not Worthy

Here might be some cards I would consider cutting:

If ya like I can re-tune my Sen to match up my current standard as that deck list is pretty old and my playstyle definitely evolved from back than.

Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake + Havengul Lich + Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge + Damping Sphere + sac outlet = infinite library exile, let your opponents die on their draw steps.

Assemble an infinite combo with my favorite card, Fleshwrither

Rhadamanthus on Does arcane adaptation with with ...

Use double square brackets around a card's name to make a pop-up link. It's the best way to make sure everyone understands what's going on in your question: Arcane Adaptation, Havengul Lich, Rooftop Storm

Yes, this works. The steps for casting a spell happen in a specific order, and paying costs is the very last step. After you announce the creature spell and move the card you targeted with Havengul Lich to the stack, Arcane Adaptation will start affecting it. Since it's now a Zombie spell, you're allowed to apply the alternative cost from Rooftop Storm when you get to the cost-paying step.

Okay some suggestions, you said you had problems with removal. Cards off the top of my head although maybe a little pricey but luckily there was reprints.

For removal, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Fleshbag Marauder, Vindictive Lich

One card I also really love in dimir is Havengul Lich, as long you have the mana you can recast your cards in the grave, not only yours but opponents as well.

One card that is also an outlet is Josu Vess, Lich Knight, better than Army of the Damned imo. Graveborn Muse is also another steady card draw. Crypt Ghast doesn't go with theme but really helps you get that mana in a pinch. Vengeful Dead is a great card if you like your zombies dying and keep coming back and dying again xD. Shepherd of Rot is a fun card to play with as well, which can synergize with a Rooftop Storm and deal an ungodly amount of damage. Oversold Cemetery can also help since you will most likely have plenty of stuff in your grave.

Hopefully these suggestions help buddy!

Hmm for reasonable priced cards, some synergistic cards that I would recommend are like Oversold Cemetery, Plaguecrafter, Fleshbag Marauder, Cemetery Reaper, Havengul Lich, Undead Alchemist, Zombie Master, Crypt Ghast, Forgotten Creation, Phyrexian Delver, Phyrexian Arena.

Also recursion is quite nice, so cards like Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and Necromancy are good budget cards.

Hope that helps, Happy Deckbuilding!
