Living Death Discussion

Ravenrose on In the Hands of the Fates [PRIMER]

2 days ago

This is a refreshing take on a Fate deck, using Triad of Fates. I have some suggestions from my own Fate deck, my Moirai deck, that you might find interesting: Blind Obedience, Tormod's Crypt, Worst Fears, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Boreas Charger, Fate Unraveler and Hallowed Burial. Some of these will hinder your opponent greatly, and in my experience - Hallowed Burial and Tormod's Crypt have saved many a-game for me, especially against pesky graveyard decks. Elixir of Immortality will permit you to retrieve your graveyard. You might want to consider Living Death as well.

Hope these help!

hkhssweiss on Need Help - Meren Upgrades?

1 week ago


What is your budget? I used to play Meren for a long time so here are a couple staple cards that can be considered :)

You can also add in more mana dorks so you can faster accelerate your game play, cards like Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Deathrite Shaman, Birds of Paradise, Elves of Deep Shadow, Fyndhorn Elves.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask questions!

xander11 Since you checked out my deck, I'll check out yours :P

Some suggestions, you can use Body Snatcher as a pseudo Karmic Guide/Phyrexian Delver that can also swap cards from your hand while you have your big fatties in there, this card is a secret tech that not much people know about! xD

While I know your more creature heavy, there is good in using reanimation type cards like the cheap effect ones such as Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, as well as Reanimate (Luckily it's getting reprinted in UMA so that $20 price tag doesn't stay for long). While this card may be broken, Protean Hulk does a lot for your build when you have to sac him to Vraska or Jarad, getting both value and efficiency. I can see there being loops with it going for infinite recursion, but that's if your all for going the combo route.

Some great cards to also run would be like Oversold Cemetery so you can keep a constant amount of creatures to be fodder and sac over and over again. With this in mind some recent cards like Vindictive Lich and Plaguecrafter get extremely fun! Hell's Caretaker is way too slow and there is a better option in Apprentice Necromancer. I'm also surprised you aren't running Living Death unless you run into a creature heavy meta than it's understandable. World Shaper is also one to think about as it is pure value, especially if you delve into a Dredge route as well.

Hope that gives you some feedback and feel free to ask any questions or advice!

hkhssweiss on Uber of the afterlife!

1 week ago


Hey welcome to EDH!

Athreos is a cool guy, very annoying to deal with at times as well. Since you said your goal is to apply pressure abusing ETB triggers here might be some cards that can help you get there!

All the cards I listed should be pretty cheap, if you need any more deck advice feel free to ask! Hope that helps!

Fiftyshotzlater on Graveyard Matters

2 weeks ago

if you want a mill win con can I suggest the one I have with my Meren deck. It consists of the combo of Avenger of Zendikar + Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest + Altar of Dementia. If you want you can even add in Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for the first sac of avenger to get double the tokens! If done right this combo can easily mill ay least one opponent before adding in a card like Living Death or Rise of the Dark Realms

hkhssweiss on Muldrotha the gravetide (cant win)

2 weeks ago


No worries, I can definitely help you out here. My main deck is a reanimator based one so I can definitely suggest you some cards to help you out. For Muldrotha since you have access to Sultai colors you have a great amount of synergy to work from your graveyard. Especially for Muldrotha itself, you will be able to play one of each permanent. There is a combo route or value route you can go for, since it is cheaper to go the value way I'll list some cards that can help you that way.

The key aspect for Muldrotha is that it can play permanents from the grave, this gives you advantage over the other players is breaking parity. You don't mind stuff going into the grave as you can play it later on when Muldrotha is online. The cards listed below should be less than $5 and would greatly strengthen your deck.

Creatures: Plaguecrafter, Satyr Wayfinder, Reclamation Sage, WORLDSHAPER!, Acidic Slime, Mulldrifter, Underrealm Lich, Spore Frog, Viscera Seer, Ramunap Excavator, Deathrite Shaman, Notion Thief, Terastodon, Zulaport Cutthroat, Protean Hulk

This is only a small handful of the many cards that can be run, basically you want to abuse as many ETB effects and use cheap ones that you can reuse every turn.

Another way to abuse your graveyard more is reanimation effects, here is some budget effects that can be added in to bring stuff out of the grave. It also helps that if it's a permanent so even if it's in the grave Muldrotha can still use it.

Recursion: Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Victimize, Living Death, Splendid Reclamation, Journey to Eternity  Flip, Deadbridge Chant

Card draw is another aspect that is essential, there are quite a bit of interesting ones that we can use to either fill our hand our fill our graveyard as well.

Card Advantage: Mystic Remora, Windfall, Frantic Search, Careful Study, Thoughtscour, Dark Deal, Syphon Mind, Chart a Course, Skullclamp, Whispering Madness

Lastly is the ramp, we want to lessen the amount of instants/sorceries we play and more permanents so artifact mana seems to be the way to go alongside creature based ETB ramp.

Ramp: Golgari Signet, Dimir Signet, Simic Signet, MindStone, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Chromatic Lantern, Wayfarer's Bauble, Expedition Map, Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf

Hope that gives a little more insight and feel free to ask any questions!
