scrapaholic09 on Zombie Swarm Affliction (Needs Help)

1 week ago

Paranoiac I appreciate the feedback. I plan to incorporate Thraximundar when I get my hands on a copy of the card. At first this deck was designed to swarm my opponents with zombies. It worked ok, but I found that with most opponents at my local store they could decimate my ranks before I got a single chance to do more than 5 or 10 damage to a single player. And without a serious mana generator I couldn't cast enough spells or trigger enough abilities to unearth or resurrect my graveyard. So I put in the several cards that allow for token generation and a combo which deals damage based on the number of zombies I have. The deck then morphed into a death draw engine in that when my opponents would draw cards they would lose life based on the act of drawing or the amount of cards in their hands via Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Otherworld Atlas, Price of Knowledge and Liliana's Caress. Then I found the Exsanguinate and Sanguine Bond card combo and now several cards will deal into that win combo for an endless cycle of you lose life so I gain life and it causes you to lose life, etc. I just can't seem to find the balance. I even bought Sedris, the Traitor King before I realized that if I use his unearth ability I have to remove the card from the game after I bring it back.That's the issue I have with Dawn of the Dead as well. I'm going to take a look at your deck and see what I can do for helping my own. I find that dated in some cases provides the best help.

StopShot on Rate each draw engine from ...

A draw engine is a two card synergy that results in repeatable card draw. I run a Mardu deck so most of the cards will be in colors. I've numbered each engine so you just need to post the engine number followed by your personal score for each. (Feel free to skip any since the list is lengthy. No card is mentioned more than once however.)

A score means the draw engine is janky, unreliable, clunky, inefficient, etc. Basically an engine you'd never consider running under any circumstance. A score means the draw engine is consistent, reliable, fast, and effecient at drawing cards. This score signifies a considerable auto-include for any EDH deck.

) Skullclamp + Bitterblossom//Reassembling Skeleton = Draw off equip cost.

) Land Tax + Scroll Rack = Exchange 3 basic lands for 3 new cards every turn.

) Mentor of the Meek + Norin the Wary = Draw a card every time Norin flickers.

) Underworld Connections + Deserted Temple = Double draw by untapping enchanted land.

) Skyhunter Skirmisher + Mask of Memory = Dig through four cards while discarding only two.

Sensei's Divining Top + Quicksmith Genius = Repeatable loot effect by resolving QG's ability last.

Greed + Ivory Tower//Authority of the Consuls = Gain life to mitigate life loss from Greed.

Ghirapur Orrery + Tireless Tribe = Discard your hand to activate the Orrery's second ability.

Tower of Fortunes + Braid of Fire//Mana Flare = Use extra mana to activate ToF's ability.

Geth's Grimoire + Geier Reach Sanitarium = Draw extra cards equal to the number of opponents.

) Phyrexian Arena + Strionic Resonator = Double draw from Phyrexian Arena.

) Well of Lost Dreams + Peace of Mind = Discard one card to draw three.

) Aggressive Mining + Drownyard Temple = Pay three mana to draw two cards on every turn.

) Endless Ranks of the Dead + Cryptbreaker = Produce lots of zombies to draw cards with.

) Gift of Immortality + Moriok Replica = Pay 2 mana to draw 2 cards and lose 2 life on every turn.

) Invasion Plans + Infiltration Lens = Draw 2 cards for each creature that blocks equipped creature.

) Otherworld Atlas + Voltaic Key//Energy Chamber = Accelerate charge counters for draw power.

) Call the Bloodline + Slate of Ancestry = Produce multiple vampires to draw multiple cards.

) Strands of Night + Magus of the Wheel = Repeatable draw seven cards.

) Humble Defector + Homeward Path = HP regains control of Defector after drawing 2 cards.

Not all draw engines need to be rated. Rating the ones that are the most interesting will do. This feedback will be crucial for other people when considering what draw engine to use for their decks.

Nice list so far! +1 from me mate.

To address your card draw worry there are some decent and some not so decent choices at your discretion. Howling Mine, Tower of Fortunes, Loreseeker's Stone, Sandstone Oracle, Farsight Mask, Phyrexian Vault, Carnage Altar, Otherworld Atlas, and Jalum Tome to name a few, hope this helped slightly

Thank you for the feedback and Upvote 43110. I actually just updated the list a bit ago slotting in Harmonize over Chrome Mox. Looking at my list in regards to drawing there is a severe lack of consistent draw and this bothers me. I have some extra wheel effects in the Maybeboard but I will have to at least try and find a way to slot in stuff like Howling Mine and/or Tower of Fortunes. Possibly even Otherworld Atlas or Font of Mythos.

Any suggestions regarding possible switches? Right off the bat Fireball comes to mind to cut in favor of something else.

EDIT: Found a spot for Howling Mine but my previous question still stands on possible switches and/or mainboard cuts.

I like how the deck is for the most part, but I found Notion Thief a bit odd and out of place for what all of the other deck is based on. I would recommend one card which is Otherworld Atlas it's not an insane card overall, but it could fit the theme of the deck and could get out of hand late game.

Scrap that last request! Don't mind that lol! I change my mind!

Instead, create a legendary card that uses the name of a person quoted in a card's flavor text.

FOR EXAMPLE: You can make a card named "Kordel the Cryptic" because he appears in the flavor texts of Conjurer's Closet and Otherworld Atlas

Guile or Blightsteel Colossus work best with the Temple Bell + Mind Over Matter combo - they don't interact with the stack on their replacement effect so opponent's cannot wipe your GY in response to the shuffle-in effect!

Otherworld Atlas also works as a combo piece with Mind Over Matter.

Happy Brewing!
