Magus of the Abyss Discussion

LittleBlueHero on How many new legends do ...

2 weeks ago

dbpunk Magus of the Vineyard, Magus of the Library, Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Jar and Magus of the Future would like a word with you :)

That being said there was already Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Arena, Magus of the Scroll, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Abyss and Magus of the Mirror before they made Magus of the Will and Magus of the Wheel.

So the current magus breakdown is: White 3, Blue 3, Black 4, Red 4, Green 3. So You could be in luck with them evening out the total number of magus!

Thank you for the tips! I'm not huge on Magus of the Abyss as I think my playgroup may find him TOO griefy, however Scroll Rack is a great idea! I'll try and fit it.

Magus of the Abyss seems like a fun card in this deck. Also, Scroll Rack turns Land Tax into Ancestral Recall every turn.

Reanimator suggestions : BIG creatures like your Skeletal Wurms are welcome, since you won't pay the mana costs for them - you'll reanimate them. You need some discard spells or self-milling.

Since you like regenerate...

Creatures : Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Magus of the Abyss (destroy your creature? Regenerate it before!), Skeletal Vampire

Otherwise, big creatures : Demon of Death's Gate, Grave Titan, Griselbrand, Lord of the Void, Massacre Wurm...

Infect suggestions : Regenerate could shine here. Enchant your creatures with the like of Phyresis or Glistening Oil, or target them with Tainted Strike and then regenerate to keep them on the battlefield if they're targeted with removal.

Since you already have Skithiryx, Infect seems like a given.

In ALL cases, you need some draw spells. Read the Bones, Painful Lesson, Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood are choices in this matter. It all depends if you want to target only yourself or you also want the choice of dealing 2 points of damage to try to finish low life opponents.

If you decide on which kind of deck you want to make, just say so i'll help more.

Sicohippy on GhoulCaller Gisa (First EDH Deck)

Welcome to EDH, my personal favourite format, and my personal favourite commander, Ghoulcaller Gisa!

I absolutely love this general because you can make whatever you want from her, I see all kinds of different takes on the deck.

If you need sacrificial fodder, definitely add Phyrexian Dreadnought, Phyrexian Soulgorger, and Waning Wurm

Kokusho, the Evening Star is great to sacrifice, just go ahead and heal yourself based on other's life totals

to buff your zombies, I see you have added Coat of Arms, don't ever remove this, its probably your strongest synergy.Zombie Master, Corpse Harvester, Unbreathing Horde are all good to continue this growth effect.

Stoneforge Masterwork, Fallen Ideal to double your zombies

Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Increasing Ambition, Beseech the Queen, Demonic Collusion are all good options for tutors, I think you ought to include atleast 2 more, maybe 3 depending on how combo-y/ synergistic you want to make this deck.

Attrition, Grave Pact, Smokestack, Magus of the Abyss, Pox and other stax cards of the like to tax your opponents for creatures while you can easily upkeep the cost.

Rise of the Dark Realms is sometimes a win con, other reanimation effects include Sheoldred, Whispering One, Dutiful Return, Dread Return, Death Denied and ESPECIALLY Hell's Caretaker, love this guy...

I could go all day with suggestions, shes really a canvas in terms of generals, you can do just about anything you want to do that is under the spectrum of black, by all means, completely ignore every suggestion I have made, this is a good deck as it stands for multiplayer already.

I hope this helps as a resource though in case you want to take it one direction or the other.

ALSO...

remember that Ghoulcaller Gisa's ability doesn't have to be used on your turn, so its important to only use it when you absolutely have to, unless your zombies have haste, that is... but remember that the zombies usually don't have haste and they need to wait a turn to be used, so you can wait until the end of an opponents turn, or the beginning of another's or even respond to effects on the stack with her ability.

I hope this helps! Cheers!
