Risen Executioner Discussion

luther on Oloro zombies

For starters, never play any card that only gains you life once Chaplain's Blessing. Especially in commander.

Take a look at your non zombie creatures, and with each one ask yourself "what does this do for my zombies?" Ex. "What does Avacyn, Angel of Hope do for my zombies? She gives them indestructible!"

Finally, my actual suggestions for cards to put in. Cemetery Reaper, Rooftop Storm, Death Baron, Diregraf Captain, Gempalm Polluter, Ghoulraiser, Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief, Zombie Master, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Gisa and Geralf, The Scarab God, Anointed Procession, Call to the Grave, Dread Summons, Grave Titan, and Endless Ranks of the Dead

I often start here to get general ideas:


Somehow Rooftop Storm is still cheap.

Interestingly since Thraximundar is a zombie you could do all the zombie lords for buffing and such. It makes for a more robust voltron since it still buffs the commander but also has more than 1 or 3 creatures.

Diregraf Captain, Lord of the Accursed, Cemetery Reaper, Undead Warchief, Zombie Master, Noxious Ghoul, Risen Executioner, Liliana's Mastery, etc.

AWOK1 the latter suggestion seems more appropriate. My goal with Risen Executioner is 1- have a late-game zombie that can get back to the battlefield (+combo with Vengevine/Prized Amalgam) and 2- boost other zombies.

The fetchlands thing is really useful, hadn't thought of that :)I think I can remove 1x Drown in Filth and try removing Risen Executioner, add the Relentless Dead and add the fetchlands :)

Will give it a shot

Thanks for reply Ghenni

I would replace 2xVisions of Beyond and 4xDrown in Filth with 4xThought Scour and 3 or 4 copies of Abrupt Decay. I would also remove the Door of Destinies and the Risen Executioner because they do not give that much value when played and the 4-cost hurts the tempo, and add instead 3 or 4 copies of Relentless Dead

This is a spicy meatball. what do you think about Bloodsoaked Champion? It might be more reliable than gravecrawler to get back from the 'yard, even if it costs more. Also, Risen Executioner seems really mana intensive for this deck.

@ Podkomorka ; Lord of Tresserhorn himself is actually a zombie according to the updated errata for him, so he's actually part of the tribal team. =)

I planned to put in more Zombie Lords and other things just so he gets things for free just by existing; but is this a bad idea then? I was thinking Zombie Master, Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Graf Harvest, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, and Undead Warchief to name a few.

I would cut Festering Goblin, it is just really bad and instead make use of another zombie lord Death Baron being the best but stupidly expensive and then Metallic Mimic, Cemetery Reaper, Risen Executioner, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief all also being options. I would also look into Vengeful Pharaoh for some incidental removal.

As for sideboard it is first necessary to evaluate the decks you face before making the sideboard.

hullos on the scarab god and zombies oh my

well, some good zombies in general are Relentless Dead, Cryptbreaker, Prized Amalgam and Geralf's Messenger all great cards in general. some good synergy in the deck might be with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Risen Executioner both great in the deck as well. you also could try Haunted Dead and Lord of the Undead or maybe even Liliana's Mastery.
