Living Death Discussion

Cards I would cut/replacement:

For Win conditions:

Really up to you tbh. But i think the following options synergize well with your deck.

1) Artifact Win Cons:

Lattice + Forge + Nevi disk. (or really any destroy all artifact)

2) Bounce win con

This one is a bit tricky, but can be done.

This usually revolves on getting ahead with mana rocks or using trickery.

Sunder would be what wins you the game, but Armageddon would work equally as well. Get ahead on rocks a few turns early, the cast it. Or pair it with a card like Taniwha

3) Cloning / stealing wincons / game ending spells

4) Entering the infinte.

Any win con that works with Enter the Infinite.

Infinite mana or omniscience is a play your deck

or even just a Psychosis Crawler.

  • You might have to make more room for these win conditions. but it at least provides you with options assuming that your opponents don't have much to work with

I was playing an EDH reanimator deck, and had most of my good stuff already back into play out of my graveyard. Opponent played a Living Death, so in response I sacrificed my board so I'd get everything back. He then Remands his own Living Death, and I cried.

Ashnod's Altar can do good work in Zombie decks.

Patriarch's Bidding is a bit pricey, but dead on (pun intended).

Living Death is risky in EDH, but oh so fun.

Alright some cuts.

Primeval Protector 10/10 vanillas that can get chumped by Soldier tokens feels bad man.

Vastwood Animist Not a fan of turning lands into creatures. Plus it's only ever going to be like a 4/4 because by the time 4+ allies hit the battlefield, you're either going to have the game in hand or someone is going to blow up the board.

Undergrowth Champion Not a lot of synergy here.

Gisela, the Broken Blade Bruna, the Fading Light I know everyone wants to live the dream, but if you're really focused on Allies I just think this isn't the deck to do it in.

Avenger of Zendikar Craterhoof Behemoth Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Gahiji, Honored One Malignus I put all these here in the same pile cause they fit into what I call "Good Stuff" that detracts from what I think the overall strategy of the deck should be. For me Allies is a deck that accrues value every turn by dropping one creature after another in a synergistic chain. These guys are at the top of the chain but either for me feel "Win More" which I'm not a fan of, or feel like they do something different than what the deck really wants to do. Just my two cents.

Just a bit of input for you: Why run Rakshasa's Disdain over Counterspell? It costs more and is conditional.Sidisi, Undead Vizier is amazing for a deck like this. A creature that grabs any card in your deck that can be easily brought back is pure value. Consider Reclamation Sage for recurrable artifact/enchantment removal (with as much self milling as you plan to be doing you want as many effects as you can stapled onto creatures). Living Death can act as a major wincon for this strategy and seems like a must include however it is around $6. Monastery Siege can let you pitch things from your hand into the grave and provides you with some draw. Ashnod's Altar could turn your less relevant late game zombie tokens into mana for a big spell like Villainous Wealth. I'm still working on my own list if you want to check it out:

This doesn't work. Doomsday exiles the cards you don't choose. Living Death brings back creatures from your graveyard, but your graveyard will be empty after casting Doomsday.

Dump as much zombies in your graveyard as you can then cast mass recurring spells such as Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding or Zombie Apocalypse, trigger "Gary" (Gray Merchant of Asphodel) then sac everything to your sac outlets (Carrion Feeder, Phyrexian Ghoul or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born) to trigger your "Zombie Aristocrats" (Vengeful Dead or Diregraf Captain). Rinse and repeat.
