Rooftop Storm Discussion

pablitocz on Creature that can reanimate others ...

Thanks! That two creature combo looks appealing and I will definitely playtest that since I'm already playing Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. I've also realised that replacing Walking Ballista with Triskelion doesn't require Grimgrin to go infinite (if I'm not mistaken).

Also, didn't really know Carnival of Souls existed! Will have my eye on that since it could be a nice alternative for Rooftop Storm combos.

pablitocz on Non-Zombie Grimgrin?

2 weeks ago

Grimgrin is a great card for deckbuilding as he can be used in so many different ways. I'm currently using him as a finisher and sac. outlet in a combo/control/reanimation shell EDH Challenge: Feed the Grimgrin!.

Great way to start is to use it as a value generator, feed him with creatures that doesn't care about dying and smash face: any self-reccuring creature (Gravecrawler, Reassembling Skeleton); anything with undying or persist (Geralf's Messenger, Glen Elendra Archmage; evoke works too as Riverdare mentioned (Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw); creatures with ETB or die triggers (Solemn Simulacrum); ones that give bonuses from graveyard (Wonder); etc. Also throw in something that benefits from creatures dying (Blood Artist, Grave Pact, Skullclamp, Mimic Vat...).

There are also some possible infinite combos with him if you are into that: Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Necrotic Ooze + Bloodline Keeper  Flip or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. It confirmed what I was worried about. I now understand that (as Boza said) such card would probably be too good and rightfully doesn't exist.

Specifically, I was looking for something that I would have the option to Buried Alive or Corpse Connoisseur for and then use it to bring back something else. Imagine magical christmas land where there is a Rooftop Storm in play and you Buried Alive for Gravecrawler, Blood Artist and the missing creature (to reanimate Blood Artist), cast the commander Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and kill everyone on the spot. I will have to stick with Entomb for Dread Return in this case.

Other than that I'm aware of all the suggestions you all mentioned. Currently using the most common reanimation spells (Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy...) with looters, Liliana of the Veil discard or above mentioned grave tutors to get creatures into graveyard.

you could try Tortured Existence as a way to discard creatures and Raise Dead other creatures...

there is Prized Amalgam but its kinda slow for the combo

Hey, before you get Lili (I presume Liliana of the Veil) which is an expensive card consider first improving the manabase? There's several budget lands to consider adding in place of the really bad dual lands. For a little less than the price of Lili you could add all the cards below and Rift/Labman: upgrade the manabase, add some good Zombies and nice support cards. That's much better for your overall deck than adding one card.

Lands to consider adding:

Zombies to consider adding:

Other cards to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Desert of the Glorified
  • Desert of the Mindful
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Meandering River
  • Submerged Boneyard
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Orzhov Basilica
  • Venser, the Sojourner
  • Sanguine Bond
  • Open the Graves
  • Levitation
  • Graf Harvest
  • Army of the Damned
  • Dark Salvation
  • Terminus
  • Time to Reflect
  • Anointer Priest
  • Aven Wind Guide
  • Geralf's Masterpiece
  • Gravedigger

Good luck with your deck.

Rupp on Ghoulcaller Gisa Infinite Zombie Tribal EDH

Ok, I’m very experienced zombie tribal player, and I can say, that I'd rather play dimir colors as Gisa and Geralf, than mono-coloured staff in EDH. There are two reasons - first, there are some really broken cards in blue, such as Rooftop Storm for example, and second - in dimir colors you can bounce permanents (Compelling Deterrence or Sedraxis Alchemist), which is very important in EDH. Then, I would advise you not to play Grimoire of the Dead. I played it for a half of the last year, and couldn't resolve its ability at least one time, spending lot of mana and totally four cards on it. And where is the Door of Destinies? You really need it in tribal.

also, if you have Rooftop Storm, Gravecrawler for infinite etb and death triggers with a sac outlet. i know he is not that budget friendly, but that is so worth it for the potential mill with with Altar of Dementia, or infinite mana with Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar. it just enables alot of super synergy with rooftop. kinda like unlocking it to be more than just a "cast stuff for free"
