Lim-Dul the Necromancer Discussion

Lhurgyof on Nicol Bolas Goodstuff EDH

I believe Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker should be in here.

Some stuff to consider: Sol Ring is an auto include in most EDH decks, and Gilded Lotus is also very strong. Massacre Wurm is a strong creature in its own right, but can be a win con with Ixidron.

You could drop 1 - 2 lands, Evil Twin, Slave of Bolas, and in general I find Lim-Dul the Necromancer too Mana intensive when a simple Reanimate will do.

+1 from me. I have a superfriends control Bolas deck if you want to check it out: E. V. I. L..

Don't be scared off by the price tag, a lot of the cards in there except for the lands and some walkers are pretty affordable.

It's deeply mana-heavy, but have you checked out Lim-Dul the Necromancer?

Lim-Dul the Necromancer is about as goth as you can get.

An extremely in-depth article just came out on this.

TL;DR: Lim-Dul the Necromancer is the most likely candidate.

Focusing on creatures such as Bane of Bala Ged, Sheoldred, Whispering One, and Kozilek, the Great Distortion, would turn this deck in a different direction than it currently goes, becoming more reanimator than control. Putting those creatures onto the battlefield makes me a target, and that's the opposite of what I want to do when I'm playing this deck. The idea is to discourage people from trying to interact with me by promising that they will lose more than I do. If I slam Sheoldred, suddenly A) they are losing value if they DON'T interact with me, and B) I have something important to lose, so the interaction's no longer one-sided in my favor.

Lim-Dul the Necromancer is certainly an option, though I tend to find him too expensive for his effect. I'd recommend trying out Geth, Lord of the Vault over Lim-Dul, since he not only can res creatures without waiting for a death trigger, but can grab artifacts too, all while doubling as another win-con should we get enough mana.

Phyrexian Obliterator is... interesting. My gut instinct is to say that it falls into the same category as Kozilek, the Great Distortion, in that it paints too much of a target on me. That said, if I were to use it properly (that is, mainly on defense), it could certainly be quite effective as a deterrent. I'll play around with it and let you know how it performs.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury is an odd one for sure. The variance on him seems really high - for every time I rip someone's eldrazi titan off the top of their library, there are going to be moments I hit three lands and an Emerald Medallion. If I were killing/reanimating him consistently, he'd be pretty sweet, but I don't know how frequently I'd end up doing that over reanimating Gray Merchant or things from my opponent's graveyards.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All seems like a good addition, and so does Primal Amulet - I'll test them and see how they do.

Kor Dirge is cute, but I dunno how effective it would be. If someone's actually attacking me, they're likely going for the kill, expecting that I'll interact by removing a lot of their attacking creatures. Dirge doesn't seem any better than any particular kill spell in that instance, and would be weaker in moments when I need a kill, but am not being actively targeted.

Sorin Markov runs afoul of the same limitations as Karn. As a terrifying planeswalker, he's going to draw more attention than he's worth. In addition, it's rare that I'm attacking with small enough amounts of damage that setting someone's life to 10 will be relevant. Either I'm swinging with a huge board courtesy of Rise of the Dark Realms, or I'm not usually swinging at all. Similarly, when casting the game-ending X-cost spells, it doesn't usually matter what life someone's at - either I have loads more mana than I could ever need, or I'm not likely going for the kill. Thus, life-gain strategies tend not to be an issue for me (doubly so since most of them rely on lifelinking creatures, which are easy for me to remove).

Yeah I reason I karn would be good is there will be decks that have enchantments same with a few planeswalkers. I been thinking of ways to be more well rounded in a multiplayer game against these cards. Plus also trying to steal the cards onto your battlefield.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury we can abuse via reanimation triggers

Kozilek, the Great Distortion for us to discard instants to counter cards and set up our spells

Bane of Bala Ged to keep exiling lands, enchantments, and other problematic things

Sheoldred, Whispering One can keep on triggering toshiro's ability

Primal Amulet to reduce our instants cost and also copy the spells

Sorin Markov I've seen a video with someone using him in a toshiro edh deck and won 4 times. While he may not be able to kill things he can take care of annoying life gain decks

Phyrexian Obliterator for defense and another way of dealing with permaments

Kor Dirge to redirect damage

Lim-Dul the Necromancer to steal your opponents creatures

Boseiju, Who Shelters All your instants cant be countered

eulogy on How much combo is too much? *HELP NEEDED*

10 months ago

yeah, the combo shines if you include Grave Pact / Grave Betrayal / Dictate of Erebos.another combo piece to this: Diregraf Colossus. endless zombies incoming.on the other side, if you can pull the combo off with your Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat, you instantly win the game.I play 38 lands and 3 artifacts that create mana. In my case it's enough if I don't draw really bad.If you want to cut smthn, I would cut Bontu the Glorified. It's a sac outlet but for real.. it's not a really good one.Ever After in addition is a really good spell to get two extra creatures out of your graveyard.Lim-Dul the Necromancer can maybe be a good addition too.
