Havengul Lich Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hmm, I would drop Cancel for Scatter to the Winds for the extra functionality, if you eventually include Forbidden Orchard awakening it with Alarm out can produce infinite untaps and give a now milled opponent infinite 1/1 creatures.
Grip of Amnesia should be dropped in favor of Summary Dismissal or almost any other counter, it's too unreliable. If you replace it with Delay and counter a commander you can Disallow the final trigger that casts a suspend spell and leave it in Exile forever.
Havengul Lich would be useful.
Propaganda is worth a look.
and Cyclonic Rift as soon as you can afford it.

Don't fight the self mill and discard, embrace it and use things like Balthor the Defiled, Zombie Apocalypse and Living Death. In short consider things that mass reanimate and cards with madness such as From Under the Floorboards or Frantic Purification, flashback like Unburial Rites or Army of the Damned also delve with things like Dig Through Time, Temporal Trespass and Treasure Cruise.
Other creatures that transform your graveyard into an extended hand are things like Phyrexian Delver, Chainer, Dementia Master, Havengul Lich, Coffin Queen and Dralnu, Lich Lord, although care must be taken when utilizing him. I CANNOT state enough how useful Havengul Lich is, he IS obscene with Rooftop Storm... and Sidisi, Undead Vizier. While it does not play things from your graveyard Wonder can be nasty, so many flying zombies.
If you meta has any similarities to mine then you may have issues keeping Rooftop Storm, besides counter magic the best way I have found to get around enchantment hate and it getting milled is Crystal Chimes and Academy Ruins. On that note this commander is also a prime candidate for Crucible of Worlds.
I don't know if you knew this trick or not but Zombie Trailblazer does not ADD swamp to the land type but rather makes the land a swamp and ONLY a swamp so if you have enough tokens and your opponent is not black you can easily lock them out of their colors.
Looks like fun +1

Prized Amalgam was there as a nice treat for reviving other cards like with Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead or with Havengul Lich's ability. It also triggers off of the undying ability that Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives and Geralf's Messenger has. It's always nice to get a free 3/3 for sac fodder or for blocking if I have Amulet of Vigor in play.

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.
Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.
Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.
Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.
Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.
Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.
Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,
Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.
Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.
You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .
Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.
I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.
I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

My biggest recommendation would be Phenax, God of Deception. It is a god in sidisi decks. It is especially good with Lightning Greaves and sidisi, it can become near infinite zombies right before your end step. Another great card is Krosan Restorer, it's great alone but also can create infinite mana with Havengul Lich and Ashnod's Altar.
I also wanted to mention Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Mindshrieker, Life from the Loam, Skullwinder, Archfiend of Depravity, Kessig Cagebreakers, Necromancy/Beacon of Unrest, and Clever Impersonator/Phyrexian Metamorph

Liliana, Untouched By Death is the best for zombie tribal, the other planeswalkers are junky.... Vess is like 50/50
You gain life through your commander get this Aetherflux Reservoir
WHY THE HELL YOU DONT HAVE COUNTER SPELLS?!?! BAD BLUE PLAYER! Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Dream Fracture these are the best three for casual play. In my opinion you want to run atleast 4 in a deck if you're blue mixed.
Drop all the tap lands and at least get battle Sunken Hollow and Prairie Stream, bond Sea of Clouds and Morphic Pool, check lands Isolated Chapel, Drowned Catacomb, Glacial Fortress bare minimum. Honorable land mentions are Ash Barrens, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Cavern of Souls, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Unholy Grotto
Penny for your thoughts.... Relentless Dead, Cryptbreaker, Soulless One, Shepherd of Rot, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Wonder, Victimize, Whip of Erebos, Chromatic Lantern, Necromancer's Covenant, Intangible Virtue, Herald’s Horn , Whip of Erebos, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Eldrazi Monument.
That's what I came up with on the top of my head.... if you wanna brainstorm the deck more
