Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist Discussion

I'm with Nexys here, I'm loving this deck. I might suggest some curses! It'll lead to a really fun dynamic, and attacks will be much more frequent. Cards like Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, (Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is also good), Curse of the Nightly Hunt is devastating, Goblin Spymaster serves much the same purpose as the above, Curse of Opulence gets the chaos going early, Curse of Verbosity is mutually beneficial, and Minds Aglow, Tempt with Vengeance, and Tempt with Reflections can all help you feed off of the group's efforts.

Seems that the challenge hasn't changed. Good thing it's a fun one.

One of my favorite commander decks i've ever made was a Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist ping deck. So much fun.

Pyromantic Salvo


During your second main phase, whenever a creature you control becomes tapped, Pyromantic Salvo deals 1 damage to any target.

When the targets yell "Fire!" instead of the firing squad.

If you had blue as a fourth color, which cards would you be interested in trying? I'm considering building a version of your deck with Tymna the Weaver partnered with Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist at the helm. I realize running blue loses some of the under-the-radar value of simply Mardu. But it offers some interesting options (of course). Some I'm considering: Propaganda, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Reins of Power, Illusionist's Gambit, Swerve, to name several.

I'm not super impressed with Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist as a commander, but he encourages opponents attacking each other - similar to Gahiji. Might be suitable as a partner?

There aren't many legendary creatures that do this, but lots of enchantments, so you could go with an enchantment deck? (e.g. Painful Quandary)

Could be fun to look at the Tribute cards from Theros block. Nothing suitable for a commander, but good flavor.

Skulloelegy on Aggro EDH Commanders

A lot of commanders you can build to be aggressive, with the commander themselves being more of a supporting role for your main aggro strategy. Look at Sygg, River Cutthroat or Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist -- Their abilities could support an aggro strategy by use of politics outside of your turn, making other players attack each other for perks, keeping you alive long enough to swarm the board or go big.

Azdranax, Quicksmith Genius is exactly what I wanted!!

enpc I like Shu as well, but I think Akiri might be slightly better. Probably with Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist due to cmc.

Rzepkanut I love Monastery Mentor for this! I hadn't even considered that before!

MagicalHacker, I don't mind Open the Vaults, but I think I might like things that will put my yard back into the library like Elixir of Immortality since it is an artifact that makes it so I can continue to draw cards without losing. It may still snag a spot since it is still pretty spicy

Akiri, Line-Slinger // Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist would fit the deck themes of artifact matters, and drawing cards. Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is another partner option with Akiri.
