Nirkana Revenant Discussion

Entrei on Mike & Yikes

Literally any card with persist (Lingering Tormentor, Puppeteer Clique, Rattleblaze Scarecrow, Wingrattle Scarecrow) and a sac outlet goes infinite off of Mikaeus. Other than that: run some of the mana doublers black is known for (Nirkana Revenant, Crypt Ghast, and the general doublers like Extraplanar Lens and Caged Sun. Oh and Bubbling Muck.

Happy deckbuilding!

Hey this is Ben, the deck looks great! Twisted Abomination, Unbreathing Horde, Wight of Precinct Six, and Victim of Night aren't good enough IMO for EDH. I can tell you're committed to the straight zombies line, but Crypt Ghast and/or Nirkana Revenant are really strong ramp. The same goes for Gauntlet of Power. Considering that your general is Sidisi, Lifeline seems like an auto-include, along with Leyline of the Void to hate out your opponents' creatures (just a good strategy anyways too). I would add more card draw in the form of Dark Prophecy and Necropotence too, which are extra good with Nykthos. Really, everything is open to you since you have a tutor as your general. Lastly, I would suggest Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed because he's amazing for recursion of anything, including your bomb sorceries, and also Phyrexian Reclamation for the most flexible recursion available. Can't wait to see it in real life!

TearsInRain23: A 14-0 streak?!? I'm impressed haha :)

Your changes seem very much reasonable, and I approve. I still think that Necropotence has a slot here: it kills you occasionally, but in most games you should win if it resolves (since there are very few cards that trade life for draw so efficiently and repeatably).

With regards to your prospective future additions, I've found Nirkana Revenant to be disappointing, Bloodchief Ascension and Ghostly Prison to depend on meta, and the two angels to be too gimmicky to be useful. Just my 2-cents, though, haha.

Congrats on your success with the deck!

@Daedalus19876: SO far this deck has a 14 game winning streak with no losses at my lgs both 1v1 and 4 player.

Removed Always Watching (replaced with Norn's Annex, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim (the sacrifice wasn't utilized to full effect in this deck. Replaced with Weathered Wayfarer for utility.), Batterskull (too slow here. Replaced with Shambling Vent), Kokusho, the Evening Star (Will find better use in my tbb Meren deck, replaced with Luminarch Ascension because angels.), Well of Lost Dreams (too much mana sink for lifegain that was garnered through combat damage more than anything else. Replaced with Painful Quandary), Death Grasp (Useless after the first game I used it, replaced with Selfless Spirit), Necropotence (The drawing at the end of my turn was hurting my games and almost cost me one so it had to go. Replaced with Karn Liberated because just because), Boon Reflection (did little. Replaced with Aven Mindcensor for control), and Oblivion Ring (Slow removal. Replaced with Unmake).

Other cards I have considered are Nirkana Revenant, Bloodchief Ascension, Ghostly Prison, and the two angels that meld into Brisela, Voice of Nightmares.

A solid deck. Looks like you could use some more ways of generating extra mana. Maybe Crypt of Agadeem, or Magus of the Coffers, or even Nirkana Revenant could find a home here.

Sorry for the late feedback I have been busy. My white/ black deck has seem some substantial upgrades if you're interested.

Karns_Pyromancer on Maralen challenge

I've got a Maralen list (Maralen's Pact) that's fun.

An important side of Stax that is often overlooked is Disruption. Think Mind Slash, Bottomless Pit, Liliana of the Veil or Oppression. Cards like Waste Not will fuel this side with fodder. While Maralen herself creates a soft lock with these effects, Mind Slash specifically pairs well with Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos.

There'should also Resurrection. Sheoldred, Whispering One is great here, as is Reassembling Skeleton. Rise of the Dark Realms & Strands of Night might be worth a looksee.

Other cards I think you'Llanowar like are Empty the Pits, Yahenni's Expertise, Magus of the Coffers, Tempt with Immortality, & Nirkana Revenant.
