Raise Dead Discussion

chadsansing on You Get a Counter and You Get A Counter

You can combine sac outlets and sacrifice-based removal with other effects that make your opponents sacrifice creatures, as well, gaining counters for your creatures that survive.

Some popular sac outlets/triggers in these colors include:

Then you can also play creatures and effects that cause opponents to sac or give you bonus counters with Marizek.

Then you can bring those creatures back into play or into your hand to sac again and again with recursive cards.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a popular commander for these kinds of decks, as well.

My other ideas are either in Mazirek Counters or its maybeboard. Let me know if I can be of more help :)

Your welcome. Oh well there not really that hard to find, although saying that I only have 4 from gods knows how many packs I have opened. You can go with Raise Dead for now but as soon as you get Wander in Death be sure to switch it over. Does your son have a secondary deck or a side board? Playing with family and friends myself I also found that I was winning a lot because I unintentionally built around that deck so it might be wise to try your deck vs other types.

Nazuya thanks for the suggestions. I like both of them. Unfortunately I only have 2 Fatal Push and I have them in my Plague Inc (G/B/W Abzan) deck and they are a bit pricy right now to get anymore. I though about maybe putting in Doomfall instead but Im still testing as it stands.

I just went through over 1500 commons looking for that Wander in Death and I couldnt find a single one. And almost all my cards are Amonket or HoD. LOL sure doesnt seem that common to me. Ill have to check with my local shop on Tuesday and see if they have a few. I was able to find Raise Dead which is about the same but without the cycle ability. Any other cards with cycling you think I should add? I basically just went through almost all my cards, pulled out all the ones with cycle, and then started to brew. So far the testing as went real well. Beat my son three times in a row while he was playing a Merfolk +1 deck. That Archfiend of Ifnir with Nest of Scarabs while having Yahenni, Undying Partisan out is just such a wining combo. Especially against other token decks so popular these days.

MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards

meowndabout, I have been torn about the fact that this list is very, very long, yet more expensive cards like that one are missing from the list (even though their high cmc is not because of their inefficiency, but rather to balance out the fact that they return cards directly to the battlefield; in fact, I almost always would rather have Zombify over Raise Dead)

So I gave it some more thought, and I think if this list is going to be useful, it has to be short enough that it doesn't show too many strictly worse cards but also long enough to include the best ones.

I'm in the process of updating the list, and will tag you again when it's done.

Thank you for the comment, because the mere question about Obzedat's Aid led me down a path of inquiry and discovery to refine this list.

DerpDeer on ITS ALIVE!! - Zombie tribal

So I know you're trying to splash in blue, but I don't think there are enough good blue cards good with zombies to do that. Also, I think adding Army of the Damned into your mainboard would help you out a lot, especially if you had Endless Ranks of the Dead out. Another few suggestions I have are to switch out Grasp of Darkness with Tragic Slip, as a lot of creatures are going to die so you can take out bigger creatures for less mana, and also consider switching out Dread Wanderer for Gravecrawler as well. Instead of using Cemetery Recruitment, if you're only using it to get Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, you could use Raise Dead. And also you could use Zombie Apocalypse, maybe Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and probably also a Rise from the Grave. None of these cards are too expensive, with the exception of Mikaeus, but I think they can help your deck out a lot more.

@ zephyr_chang I've been able to play everything that's high in cost, as soon as I have a Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, I can search for another one with many "search library" cards and use his "Grandeur" to get an additional 2 swamps onto the field from my library.... Then my Raise Dead and Ghoulcaller's Chant can immediately bring 1 or 2 discarded Korlash into my hand and do it again. I've got 9 Swamps out on the field in one turn by doing so.

Also, Ghoulcaller's Chant gets you twice the zombies back for the same amount of mana as Raise Dead for less money
