I'd remove Triskelion, Wood Elves because Nissa's got it covered, Maelstrom Pulse is not as great in commander, unfortunately.Also, i'm considering Killing Wave over Black Sun's Zenith.

Hex Parasite is good to keep your creatures undying/persisting. Grim Flayerfor mulching. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Archetype of Endurance in the triskelion spot. Lightning Greaves or other creature protection is going to be necessary to keep 'Meren the gains.

hey, nice deck, love undying makes me feel so alive :D made similar deck, but to end the game I'm trying to cast kind of combo Killing Wave + Blood Artist as all me creatures will be back. just leaving one B to remove the +1/+1 with Retribution. I would suggest Scarscale Ritual, "heels" undying creatures and draws 2 cards. Butcher Ghoul is undying zombie. And with that amount of sacrifice you could replace Bone Splinter with Tragic Slip - goes around indestructible as well.

Hi! Nice Deck. Good Input with the Flaying Tendrils, I am searching for some Wrath effects.What about Killing Wave in the Sideboard?

I would definitely cheapen your spells a bit. At least adding a Jet Medallion, Helm of Awakening, or just a Sol Ring would help. Magus of the Coffers and Crypt Ghast are even better. Putting in some spot removal and board hate would also serve you well. Trading out for Doom Blade, Bontu's Last Reckoning and Plague Wind would do wonders against even non-white stuff. If you want to get REALLY saucy, throw in Killing Wave and Torment of Hailfire to rub salt in their wounds.

For any other deck, all other sweepers are better than Killing Wave. But here it's better, due to the tricks you can do on your own creatures with it (like keep a couple of Blood Artists, and let stuff die that turns into eldrazi spawn, which you then sacrifice, causing even more damage to your opponent).

No idea how to tell if this necro because I just made this account to comment.

I really enjoy this deck but I made a few changes because I was getting stomped early or just didn't own the cards.

First -4 fluctuator-1 scion-2 Angel

I tired all these guys at one point and felt they were either too slow or just a win more card.

Fluctuator was most def a win more in most cases. Sometimes I got it early enough but to me this deck wants to to play a longer game so cycling a bunch on one turn isn't a huge deal since in my experience I win by a thosand cuts...and my asshole friends have artifact hate in spades.

I wasn't sure why you rocked scion over eternal dragon. Hes a nice beat stick and he can cycle but twisted abomination is cheaper and has swampcycling if you wanted to stay black and keep real money cost down.

The angels. I like em, and I'd probably keep em in if I owned some but I don't. This one I'll leave up to you.

As far as replacements. +4 Inquisitor Exarch

I don't own kitchen finks and I'm not dropping that kinda cash on cardboard. Its an early body that can pressure or keep a game going. Plus unearth hits it.

+3 Killing Wave

Gotta try and slow down the creature beatdown and since I down have any wraths, damnations or any of those other ones I used this. Gl my dude

Thanks! I have been wondering a lot about this decklsit since it was the first I ever made and I was considering moving the drainers up but wasnt sure.

Killing Wave is a card I like a lot but am a bit worried about the mana cost.Yahenni's Expertise and Bontu's Last Reckoning have around the same function and almost guarantee a board swipe (which Yahenni, Undying Partisan can survive). 1 or 2 of those sure sounds like a nice idea.

Since Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist are two of the most important cards in the deck (and probably no other cards are as important), you ought to have 4 of each. Also, contrary to recurring creatures, redundant copies are not useless - 2 Blood Artists in play is actually twice as good as one.

Killing Wave can be a pretty good card for this type of deck - not a 4-of, but 1 or 2 seems about right.
