Nantuko Husk Discussion

crossbones on What are you gonna do, send it to my graveyard?

Gravecrawler goes infinite with Rooftop storm, Diregraf Captain/Plague Belcher and a sac outlet. Nantuko Husk can get scary big for a turn. Gravecrawler is just super handy to have around too, as the cheapest/easiest to recur body for Sidisi and other sacrifice costs. On that note, Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos would work really well here too, especially seeing as you aren't running much spot removal.

Personally, one of the first things I'd suggest doing is to take out the Revenant Patriarch and Corpulent Corpses. If the goal of the deck is to end the game early, then you should probably be taking out the cards that take a while to get out. Some good cheap cards you can get would be Bone Splinters, Plague Belcher, Diregraf Colossus, Lord of the Accursed, Carrion Feeder, Nantuko Husk, Voracious Null, and Wayward Servant. Some good expensive-ish cards you could get would be Geralf's Messenger, Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and Endless Ranks of the Dead.

Pheardemons on Turn two win

Hey man. Just wanted to let you know the interaction you have for this deck doesn't work the way you are thinking. It would be a great idea if it did. Since Essence of the Wild and all of the zero toughness creatures enter at the same time, Essence of the Wild's static ability isn't on the battlefield yet. Your zero toughness creatures will die due to state-based actions, and will NOT be a copy of Essence of the Wild. Love the idea if it would've worked though.

The link will take you to the Rules Q/A section that I asked if this interaction worked.

Suggestion for you as some replacements. Creatures that create tokens when they enter or die. Something like Blisterpod or Tukatongue Thallid with a sac outlet in the form of Carrion Feeder, Viscera Seer, or Nantuko Husk. That way, when you get Essence of the Wilds onto the battlefield, you simply sacrifice your low CMC creatures to create 6/6s.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Take a look at Fallen Ideal. Same effect as Nantuko Husk, except it automatically returns to your hand for repeated use. Also, it provides a huge flyer.

I had Gisa for a bit and looking at your deck you're land heavy and short on ramp. Making your land drops is great but when you're stuck at only that you'll be left in the dust by other decks most times. Charcoal Diamond, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, etc. are options to get you ahead or get lands out of your deck so your draws are action.

Magewright's Stone is another source of untapping to consider.

Surprised to not see wraths like Damnation or Decree of Pain.

Your woefully low on card advantage. Phyrexian Arena, Ob Nixilis Reignited , Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, etc. do a solid job.

In my deck I employed Blood Bairn, Bloodthrone Vampire and Nantuko Husk to eat zombies and sack it for a ton more. Then reanimate again for more. Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Animate Dead are always useful in black decks imo.

Hope something helps!

I am working an a deck that is somewhat similar here, but which is still quite different and I was wondering why you would choose a Nantuko Husk over a Bloodthrone Vampire. To me, the latter seems better, due to its lower CMC even though its power is one less.

Or even maybe a Liliana's Elite or Nantuko Husk for bigger creatures.
