Nephalia Drownyard Discussion

Hey, I'm digging this list so far!

I would recommend cutting Glimpse the Unthinkable. A 1-time mill effect that only hits for 10 cards (at $30, to boot) just isn't going to have enough impact in the average game. I would HIGHLY recommend replacing it with Altar of the Brood. This card looks innocuous, but it does freakin' WORK. I played a Lazav deck for a while, and that card always over-performed, especially when dropped on T1.

Additionally, I would recommend replacing Duskmantle, House of Shadow for Nephalia Drownyard. For just one more mana, you get 2 more cards! You'll probably also want to run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers to help power out some of those huge X spells. Mind Grind for X = 20 is basically a game-ender in its own right, and that's easy to do with the Coffers doin' work.

I might also recommend Jace's Archivist. He may not seem like a good mill card, but he gets people churning through decks REALLY quickly. Not to mention he has crazy synergy with Sphinx's Tutelage. To that point, Jace's Erasure was another over-performer in the Lazav deck I played. I would cut Millstone for it.

It might be beneficial to replace Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger with one of the OG Eldrazi Titans, simply for the fact that they have the "shuffle your graveyard back into your library" clause. It would help you protect yourself against any incidental self-mill you'll be incurring throughout the course of a game.

Beyond that, you might want to consider adding a few cards that do graveyard shenanigans, like Sepulchral Primordial and Reanimate and Memory Plunder. You'll certainly have a lot of juicy targets!

My only other advice is to bump up your land count. Not by much, but 36 is usually bare-bones minimum unless your curve tops out at 4. I might recommend 37 or 38 for this build.

Duskmantle Guildmage Mindcrank are a good mill combo. Keep in mind that, unless you can actuallymill your opponent

Nemesis of Reason, Mind Sculpt, Nephalia Drownyard, Startled Awake  Flip, Tome Scour, Traumatize

Glimpse the Unthinkable is definitely good.

looks like a solid deck! I have a couple ideas that i hope will improve your deck!

Nephalia Academy, Radiant Fountain and Waterveil Cavern could be upgraded, maybe Terramorphic Expanse, Nephalia Drownyard, Drownyard Temple, Bojuka Bog

Chronic Flooding, Corpse Churn, Strategic Planning, Forbidden Alchemy, Mesmeric Orb could be a clever way of adding cards to the graveyard

Sol Ring is a stable in commander, more mana rocks? Dimir Signet, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus

Raise Dead dosen't seem strong enough. maybe Beacon of Unrest?

Exhume, Gnawing Zombie, Grave Peril, Gravepurge, Moan of the Unhallowed could be possible cuts

Secrets of the Dead is awesome! maybe swap for or add River Kelpie as well!

Fleshbag Marauder is super good!

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is great!

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon seems out of place

Rise from the Tides seems out of place as well

Call to the Grave is very good

Death Baron, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Noxious Ghoul are some zombies that i think could improve your deck!

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet isn't a zombie but makes them and provides a good effect for commander!

Maybe add a some sources of life gain as well, Whip of Erebos is a good one

Havengul Lich is amazing with Rooftop Storm!

Sensei's Divining Top can set up your mills.Curse of the Bloody Tome gives you mills. Nephalia Drownyard. Psychic Spiral could become a wincon. I have 50 cards in my graveyard. You just drew a bunch and now your library is gone. Dreamborn Muse mainly the self mill at your upkeep. Genesis hand recusrion.

in my opinion you need some walkers that can provide board-state and give you a way to win

Elspeth, Sun's Champion creates 3 dudes and has a removal for big creatures

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar turns into a 5/5 with indestructible, creates 2/2s, and gives you a bomb ass emblem.

you 100% need Ajani Steadfast his -2 "Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control and a loyalty counter on each other planeswalker you control."

Also with your land you should run 4 Flooded Strand at least 2 Watery Grave and still drop 2-4 land you are in modern you can afford a smaller land base because of the fetchlands that let you go get what you need. Nephalia Drownyard honestly doesn't do much for your deck. Evolving Wilds have to go that's what you have the fetchlands for (Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta)
