Kraum, Ludevic's Opus Discussion

ive-been-degaussed on Kydele and Silas: Eldrazi Sultai Summoners

MegaMatt13 One last thought before I go, but if you ever want to switch up color identity, consider going RUG and running Kraum, Ludevic's Opus instead of Silas. Red opens you up to:

Let me know what you think of this: I may try brewing up a list in my own time either way!

I've thought a lot about this and I came up with Vial Smasher the Fierce and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus. None of the other Grixis Commanders really lend themselves well to a Grixis goodstuff deck. Jeleva is a spellslinger commander, Nekusar is a wheel/card draw general, etc. That, and Vial Smasher being so good, led my to look at the partners. We don't want Silas Renn, Seeker Adept because you're not making an artifact deck and so that leaves you with choosing from Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Ludevic himself. Since Ludevic helps your opponents, I opted for Kraum, even though you'll rarely cast him (but in those few instances that you'd want him, he's better than Ludevic).

I hope this helps!

I'm surprised that there is no Jace, the Mind Sculptor in this deck.

Also While playing it i've found that i could make a Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Tandem Lookout combo with Synthetic Destiny, but the lookout weren't there! (I'd put Tandem Lookout instead of Kraum, Ludevic's Opus. opponent also maybe wouldn't veer cast second spell..)

I also have a question on how does Synthetic Destiny works with commander. Does He comes back to cmd. zone?

How has Kraum, Ludevic's Opus played? To me he seems weak, but I've never tested him, so

Smasher flying solo huh? Have you considered splashing blue for Kraum, Ludevic's Opus or white for Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder? I know from experience that blue has a lot to bring to the table in a Vial Smasher deck and White could add a lot of aggressive options.

If you just stick with Black/Red you could try out Murderous Cut, Curtains' Call, Blasphemous Act, and Avatar of Woe.

Carrion Feeder better sac outlet than gnawing zombies

Apprentice Necromancer hasty zombies are cool, this seems like an all star under mimic vat

Plaguebearer-anti token tech

Relentless Dead good all around card

Shepherd of Rot good with whip of erebos

Tymaret, the Murder King sac outlet with minor upsides. the more zombies in the deck the better

Withered Wretch graveyard hate=super good. if you run a lot of graveyard hate maybe look at Living Death as well

Anathemancer silly ramp decks with their fancy dual lands

Cemetery Reaper graveyard hate and lord

Death Baron no one will block thrax

Diregraf Colossus seems good at swarming, really good with gravecaller and phyrexian altar

Lich Lord of Unx slow token production, kinda cool win con

Lord of the Accursed another lord

Nantuko Husk free sac outlet. maybe better than ashnod's altar?

Plague Belcher board wipe i dare you

Unbreathing Horde big dumb guy, possibly hard to kill though

Agent of Erebos graveyard hate that could be repeatable

Corpse Augur card draw, you might be lacking on this type of effect right now

Drunau Corpse Trawler two zombies in one card

Forgotten Creation get that hand cycling for living death and patriarch's bidding

Risen Executioner another lord with possible upside

Undead Alchemist go wide in clever way

Undead Warchief super good card

Vengeful Dead another anti wrath tech

Custodi Lich card draw and board control

Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain in massive swings is good in my book

Havengul Lich awesome card, would play

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus gotta get that blue/red working in your deck. this could be a Rhystic Study possibly as well

Lightning Reaver no one expects the hasty zombie, and gets around pillow forts. might make people target it/you

Noxious Ghoul super great card! it's been an all-star in every zombie deck i've run

Phyrexian Delver reanimation is good i hear

Possessed Skaab The zombie eternal witness?

Sidisi, Undead Vizier get your rooftop storm on curve

Woebearer slowish reanimation

Deathbringer Thoctar more creature control

Gempalm Polluter killing folks at instant speed, could be good to Phyrexian Reclamation

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed the best lord

Noosegraf Mob go wide

Twisted Abomination good early and late

Dark Salvation flexible kill card. make sure you understand the card before goofing it up

Cemetery Recruitment cheap draw 2

Zombie Infestation swarm card, might want to run a Bident of Thassa to fuel it

Curse of Shallow Graves kinda risky token maker

Empty the Pits instant speed army please?

Gisa and Geralf the type of non zombie i like in this deck

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet graveyard hate and tokens, winner winner chicken dinner

Vizier of Many Faces the embalm is a zombie, and you can get value out of milling it

Call to the Grave a payoff card to running zombies

Ghoulcaller Gisa swarm and sac outlet

Liliana, Death's Majesty if you want a planeswalker

Stitcher Geralf remember you can exile the creatures your opponents mill

Syphon Flesh expensive creature kill

Ever After could be good

Zombie Apocalypse this seems great

Necromantic Selection really expensive wrath, might want a Decree of Pain for the mana cost

Army of the Damned yeah zombies

Possible cuts

gnawing zombie- i think carrion feeder is better

mind slash- really slow, like really

phyrexian crusader- if this is your only infect threat i'm not sure i like it

defiler of souls- call to the grave is better in my book

cruel ultimatum mana curve reasons

curse of the cabal see above

trophy mage non zombie

phyrexian obliterator non zombie

you could think about cutting mulldrifter and skriekmaw as well because they aren't zombies

well that's a lot to think about, i'm excited to see what you put together!!!

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus would be good for card draw, Melek, Izzet Paragon for spell copying,Nivix, Aerie of the Firemind, Rogue's Passage are solid lands for this kind of deck, Arjun, the Shifting Flame could be good i like it, Spellheart Chimera is another good one, Arcanis the Omnipotent is amazing so is Dominus of Fealty, Satyr Firedancer,Uyo, Silent Prophet and Sakashima the Impostor. i think your land count is a little high i would go more like 33-35 and i personally don't think you need izzet signet so many or your spells are going to be free or super cheap. i turned my mizzix deck into a board wipe piss everyone off deck.

I do wonder if Kraum, Ludevic's Opus would be a better partner, since it can give you card advantage off your opponent's resources, rather than both requiring you devote your own and allowing your opponents to get advantage as well.
