Nyx Weaver Discussion

Ja1n on EDH Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

-1 Corpse Connoisseur (Entomb felt better and can get you off to a great early start).

-1 Nyx Weaver (While has great synergy with Sidisi, is definitely less powerful than anything else).

-1 Ghost Quarter (Deck wanted ramp and I'm comfortable with 36 lands)

-1 Whip of Erebos (Exiling something always felt like too big a cost)

-1 Jarad's Orders (Effect replaced with Entomb and I couldn't really think of a card I wanted in my hand that I wouldn't rather just have in the yard, although maybe Big Game Hunter)

+1 Deathrite Shaman (Creature and ramp, gets a big tick of approval! Plenty of lands in the yard for redundancy. If it really screws over the Worm Harvest plan I'll reconsider.)

+1 Entomb (This is a reanimate deck, this guy and a reanimate in the opener is a big game!).

+1 Birthing Pod (Sacrificing creatures is great! Getting more powerful creatures from that is great).

+1 Dosan the Falling Leaf (Makes the Laboratory Maniac a more reliable win-con on your turn)

+1 Brutalizer Exarch (Tutors where you can dredge it into the yard or draw it is awesome and so is tucking annoying permanants. Deck does feel low-ish on removal for a black deck to he helps.)

I already have Codex Shredder, but Nyx Weaver is all but tailor-made for the deck. Definitely added!

You would probably benefit from having some way of getting a Mortal Combat out of your graveyard, so you can have access to it if you mill one: Nyx Weaver or Den Protector maybe.

Here are my suggestions:

Nyx Weaver is a pretty good card to mill yourself with every turn, and then tutor back something in your graveyard.

If you dump your whole library into your graveyard, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord can be brought back to your hand by sacrificing a couple lands, ready to smash face for a whole lot of damage. He's a zombie, too.

Splinterfright does double duty as a beatstick and self-mill. He also has trample, which ensures you'll be coming through for a lot of damage.

Havengul Lich is an incredible card that can be used to bring back a combo piece (Mikeaus or Tatterkite come to mind), and is generally a pain for enemies to deal with.

Gisa and Geralf lets you cast value zombies from your graveyard, as well as provide an etb self-mill effect.

Splendid Reclamation is a nice sorcery that can grab all those lands that you've milled.

Yes, Nyx Weaver is kinda slow and not really very interactive.

If anything, it more went with the Looting combo shown earlier to serve as Goyf-Roids (A dual type card meant to make Tarmogoyf stronger more quickly).

The only reason it was put in there was because a friend of mine in college recommended it to work with a self mill theme while this was still Golgari. Aside from that, I really haven't researched any of the other Enchantment Creatures as much as I should have. Right now, I'm debating switching out the Weaver for either: Mogis, God of Slaughter or Master of the Feast.

Nyx Weaver seems really slow and clunky. Are you including it to have an enchantment to put into the graveyard? If so, wouldn't a Seal of Doom or Sinister Concoction or even a Seal of Primordium be more likely to also be useful in their own right and be easier to get into the graveyard?

I have a similar deck that plays Strength from the Fallen, Nighthowler, and the previously mentioned Nyx Weaver.

I might consider cutting Lotleth Troll and/or Boneyard Wurm, because most of the time you want to spend your second turn filling your grave with something like Grisly Salvage anyways. Cutting some two drops for more powerful threes could benefit you.
