Rise from the Grave Discussion

HangDoll on What mechanics should return for ...

1 week ago

So even at 3x, Boomerang would still be a Upheaval at instant speed which is banned from the format. I personally feel that giving everything overload would be a bad idea. I'd like to just see the mechanic on new cards without having a card give it to everything. Overload isn't really a safe mechanic to just hand out to everything.

An overloaded Rise from the Grave would be fun to use. Normally reanimates a creature but overload you get each creature and they're all zombies. Zombie decks would enjoy that.

Personally, I want Overload Duress and or Blightning. Those types of cards that tend to do poorly in our format as opposed to spells that do really well.

By the sounds of it, you want some pure reanimation to get the most out of your commander. Victimize, Rise from the Grave, Necromantic Summons, and Debtors' Knell would help fit the bill.

Dredge is great for graveyard fun. Dont forget about reanimator stuff too like Rise from the Grave to bring back scary stuff like Doomgape. Delirium works well too.

Tokens do go to the graveyard which does trigger Marionette Master. It's just that once they have hit the graveyard they disappear into a cloud of smoke. That's why they work with things like Grave Pact, Blood Artist, and Fecundity but won't with Rise from the Grave, Faith's Reward, or Revive.

Awesome little deck, treasures and Marionette Master is a synergy dream come true. How well does it hold up against stuff like Ramunap Red?

Pieguy396 on Kokusho the lifegain dragon

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'm not fully sure whether you want a Kokusho-focused deck with a lifegain subtheme, or a lifegain-focused deck with a Kokusho subtheme, so I'll give you tips for both:


You generally want a lot of ways to find your Kokushos, as well as ways to return them from the graveyard, so I'll focus on those two.

If you're focused on more of a lifegain theme, I'd go with some of the following:

I should also say that I'm generally not a fan of cards that do nothing but gain you life. Chaplain's Blessing and Alms of the Vein can be good, sure, but they generally don't actually do anything.

Regardless of which version you're actually looking for, I would also recommend adding in some more removal, probably at least 5 copies total of the following: Doom Blade, Murder, Oust, Condemn, Dismember.

In any case, good luck with your deck!

Tyrant-Thanatos on Ownership on melded cards

2 months ago

It's not a token though, it's a creature that consists of two cards, each of which are owned by different players. When you cast Rise from the Grave on an opponent's creature card you do not become the owner of that card.

alias42 on Scion of the Ur dragon EDH deck

Maybe you could run cards like Flickerform or Deadeye Navigator with a couple reanimator effects such as Rise from the Grave. Tutor bladewing into your gy, reanimate him, then flicker him every turn to bring back whatever dragon you got into your gy with scion permanently
