Kumena's Awakening Discussion

Optimator on Gisa and Geralf EDH V.2.2

I have a Gisa & Geralf deck too! Rooftop Experiments (Zombie Tribal).

So you say this decks needs some help. I've looked over it and here are my thoughts:

First off, it looks really good. I love your creature selection. It appears you're going somewhat wide with a "regular" aggro plan, so I'll be basing my suggestions off that. From what I've seen of your other decks you have something of a budget (as do I!) so I'll refrain from just suggesting every big-time upgrade on EDHREC.

One thing is it looks like you only have four or five ramp pieces. Personally I aim for at least eight in all my decks that don't have a ramp strategy, and more for those that do. Perhaps three more? I've found that I really like casting a spell from hand then casting a zombie from the graveyard as much as possible, so you'll be happy with the extra mana. Fellwar Stone is good for the Havengul Lich. Consider Mind Stone, Wayfarer's Bauble, Talisman of Dominance, Star Compass, Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, or perhaps Black Market.

You're also at around five or six card-draw cards. Could be better, but it's not bad--especially since you have so much card advantage coming from the graveyard. Still, hand refills are always nice and it's nice to draw into answers. Windfall is good for graveyard-y decks. Perhaps a big hand-refiller like Mind Spring, Tidings, or Overflowing Insight? You would often have The City's Blessing for Kumena's Awakening if you can't afford a Phyrexian Arena and/or Rhystic Study. Rain of Revelation has a hint of graveyard synergy, and stuff like Reconnaissance Mission and Keep Watch synergize with your go-wide build.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is premium in Gisa & Geralf decks. Can't recommend her enough. Great way to get Rooftop Storm out!

You should consider Archetype of Imagination to combo with Magus of the Moat. And Island Sanctuary. I also like Kumena's Awakening for card draw, and you will hit City's Blessing pretty quickly. Gush is good card draw.

For budget card draw, go with Kumena's Awakening. You'll hit city's blessing real quick.

I like Mystic Remora, but not the upkeep cost. I've found myself playing with Kumena's Awakening more and more, and getting the City's Blessing is pretty easy. You could also run Mesa Enchantress. Flickering Ward can bounce, and might prove useful, and if you combined it with Sigarda's Aid could really do some work.

I like it! Gives me some thoughts on building a version!

Hmm that is a pretty vague request. Card draw engines come in all shapes and sizes depending on your strategy. What type of deck are you trying to build? Regardless, here are some of my favorite general ones in each color:

Black: Greed, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Underworld Connections

Green: Colossal Majesty, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Rowen, Elemental Bond

Red: Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip, Outpost Siege, Furious Rise

Blue: Monastery Siege, Kumena's Awakening, and many, many more

White: Hahahahaha...white doesn't draw cards. Mentor of the Meek and Dawn of Hope are about it

Colorless: Staff of Nin, Book of Rass, Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Trading Post

Not great but some colors have limited access to repeatable draw Arcane Encyclopedia Mind's Eye

Blue Kumena's Awakening Honden of Seeing Winds

Green creature base Lifecrafter's Bestiary Guardian Project Elemental Bond

Black Vampiric Rites

Half draw half ramp simic colors Bounty of the Luxa

As for a win-con you are in good colors for some infinite combos. You could consider Demonic Consultation with Thassa's Oracle, Bloodchief Ascension with Mindcrank, or Cephalid Aristocrat with Lightning Greaves and some empty library win-con.

Then either put in a tutor or two (not as fun) or put in a couple more ways to draw cards like Insight, Kumena's Awakening, or Phyrexian Arena.

With a couple combos, then you should win most of the time with your ninja's but have the added bonus of sometimes going to an infinite win or having a second way to win. Also, with a bunch of small creatures out and access to green you could just throw in a End-Raze Forerunners and/or Overwhelming Stampede
