Postmortem Lunge Discussion

Ive definitely considered Postmortem Lunge , but quicken isnt needed because breakfast + oracle in a hulk pile wins at instant speed. I considered lunge but my playgroup tends to go the “counter any threat” route and not the “destroy creature” route. I used Quicken in breakfast but i feel that Oracle wins at instant speed so it isnt really needed.

I prefer Postmortem Lunge over Claim , the haste it grants can let you reanimate a devoted druid and go off immediately, and you can still use it to bring back a vizier or a piece of your secondary combo that isn't specifically two mana.

  • Seems like an more consistent strategy, albeit having more combo pieces. Seems like it works just as effectively on turn 4.
  • I'm trying to stay more with the Ball Lightning flavor as opposed to any tribal mechanics. Early damage feels more effective and mentally taxing for my opponent, even if I don't win immediately. I also get to abuse Postmortem Lunge more.
  • Thanks for the suggestions, though.

You should try to add in Conjurer's Bauble since it cantrips and can protect your cards from Surgical Extraction .

You might need Time of Need to get Emry, Lurker of the Loch more consistently.

If you manage to self mill more Postmortem Lunge and Unearth serve as aditional ways of getting your creatures to the battlefield.

Also consider Thousand-Year Elixir for "haste". Additionaly, while not being competitive, you can have Thousand-Year Elixir + Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle +2x Emry, Lurker of the Loch for infinite self-mill followed by reviving Laboratory Maniac

May i know is there an infinite loop with Postmortem Lunge now that there is only one Memory's Journey and no more timetwister or krosan reclamation?

How do you win other than by lab man? Is there an infinite loop demonstrable that i missed?

Thanks in advance.

Back up to 3 Postmortem Lunge after having it win the game for me a few times - cutting the second Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip to fit it. Also swapped the Kitchen Finks out for a second Scavenging Ooze since it's way more important in the current Hogaak saturated meta. I'm considering that the meta dependent flex slot, and in a burn heavy meta I'd prefer the Finks.
