rasck on Budget Lazav, Dimir Mastermind - EDH / Commander

1 month ago

Really nice deck tech - Thanks!
I would consider swapping Lazav, Dimir Mastermind with The Scarab God (came out after this deck tech) as the commander for this deck. Why? Because I think this deck needs more evasion and focus on Lazav, Dimir Mastermind as a Voltron. But the deck tech as is, is spot on for a control build with The Scarab God . You focus on getting cards into the graveyard which is also perfect for The Scarab God and he don't need the evasion. Kill him and he gets back to the hand. Your ETB creatures does not get double effect from Lazav, Dimir Mastermind they do with The Scarab God and Wight of Precinct Six will just get more fun when The Scarab God calls him back as a +4/+4 zombie
The zombie effects from cards like Necromantic Selection, Rise from the Grave, Grave Betrayal, Lim-Dul the Necromancer, Overseer of the Damned fit very well into the The Scarab God theme.
A few budget suggestions:
- Ancient Excavation
- Demon of Dark Schemes
- Fleet Swallower

I'm brewing on a on not so budget deck - with the awful name: It's alive! It's alive!. I have more focus on steal and clone effects than milling, because I feel more in control with that style :-)

Btw. a really evil combo is tapping Jace's Archivist and then flashing in Notion Thief >:)

Overseer of the Damned is good for more zombies. also i'd go with Coat of Arms instead of Herald's Horn beyond that it's pretty good! I also have something like this except with The Scarab God at the helm , but it's still effective with Gisa and Geralf leading

Looks good. The only suggestion I have is switching out Indulgent Tormentor for a more mana positive and powerful demon like Archfiend of Despair, Overseer of the Damned, or even Sower of Discord. I would only let you play with this once in my play group, then you get hated out, cause... ugh. +1 from me.

Rune-Scarred Demon might be the best budget option for reanimation. Anything you bring back from the grave should cost at least 7 mana otherwise it's just better to play the card outright. Your three main concerns for the deck should be stuff to bring back from the grave stuff to bring it back and stuff to put it into the yard. Herald of Anguish Lord of the Void Overseer of the Damned Caller of the Pack are all decent choices

Sultanna on Kaalia of the Vast edh ...

You are welcome to check out my Kaalia deck: Saints, Sinners, and Serpents, it's a little out of date and I've replaced some so-so "meh" cards with much better ones :) She's one of my favorite decks to play and I have some recommendations that I think would fit well with yours.

I would say to take out Disciple of Bolas, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Sire Of Insanity, and Demonlord Belzenlok. Personally I'm not a fan of these cards in Kaalia and I think there are far better options, IMO.

I would definitley add in: Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Akroma, Angel of Fury, Aurelia, the Warleader, and Platinum Angel in addition to other cards you're wanting to put in - those will buff your deck immensely. Personally, I'd try to fit them all in. I might take out Overseer of the Damned and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, as well.

As for enchantments I'd also put in Fervor as another way to give Kaalia haste. Personally, I'm a big fan of Expedite to give her haste for one mana and draw a card. I'd consider investing in Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer as ways to fix your land.

Let me know if this helps!!

The weakest cards after that point are probably meta dependent.

Exploration is purely luck based in your build (Unless your group House Rules Partial Paris Mulligan). When its in your opening hand its fantastic but more often than not its comes down too late to do anything. Deathreap Ritual isn't so great if you primarily play vs 1 or 2 players Herald of Leshrac draws a giagantic target on you vs 2 or more. Aetherworks Marvel probably won't proc very often unless you see a ton of field wipes Void Winnower is good against combo decks and Overseer of the Damned is good against creature and graveyard based decks but both are situational.
