Rooftop Storm Discussion

Gempalm Polluter is a necessity for any Zombie deck. The cycling is really good.

Graveborn Muse is great to keep your hand full. Combos nicely with Rooftop Storm.

Liliana's Reaver is a good midrange card.

Lifebane Zombie is a great sideboard option vs green and white. With all the recursion in your deck, chances are you'll be exile a whole lot of cards.

Undead Warchief is amazing, and only four dollars.

Cemetery Reaper is a zombie lord.

Call to the Grave is great in that it causes all other players to sacrifice a creature on their turns, while leaving you virtually unharmed. The only problem is that your commander will be sacrificed too, but compared to the advantage, I'd say it's worth.

Soulless One and Shepherd of Rot are both good cards to consider as well.

Door of Destinies makes all your Zombies much stronger. Not to mention the shenanigans with Army of the Damned.

Sedraxis Alchemist is this deck's version of Man-o'-War. It also combos with Rooftop Storm and Door of Destinies for infinite p/t for your zombies.

So I tried Rooftop Storm akong with Gravecrawler in the deck and have to say I am pretty impressed. Found out that zombie swarm is not the best line to win, perhaps my build is more control than aggro. Usually I ended lot of games with Torment of Hailfire. I really like the way Rooftop Storm synergizes with few cards in the deck, namely Havengul Lich. If you have sac outlet out you are golden.

I would also like to try a new card Vindictive Lich. It does affect the whole board and the effect seems very strong. If you can recur him it can be very nasty.

If you're interested in janky fun, Cryptbreaker + Rooftop Storm + Intruder Alarm is difficult to piece together without tutoring, but pretty funny.

Draw into zombies with Cryptbreaker, play zombies to untap your blokes, then draw more cards.

So I was playing a game of commander with the wifey last night, (her Nekusar control, me oloro zombies). And while she quickly stopped it, I ended up with Rooftop Storm and Pontiff of Blight = FREE ZOMBIES PLUS EXTORTED LIFE. Once she realized the fact that I was able to play free creatures and still extort them, she removed the pieces faster than Aether Vial craps out creatures.

Anyone else played with some neat combos, used a janky as hell trick, or seen some interesting things like this?

Example of eternalize: Adorned Pouncer

No. Eternalize does not cause you to cast anything. Eternalize is an activated ability that exiles the card as part of its cost and creates a token upon resolution. As such, it never results in the card becoming a spell, so Rooftop Storm can't apply.

when you use eternalize, you're actually NOT "casting" the card. rather, you are activating an ability. Rooftop Storm only affects the mana cost of a card, which is in the top right corner. it does not affect the mana cost for activated abilities.

This seems a little absurd if this works, but I'm skeptical. Rooftop Storm makes it so you can cast zombie spells for 0. when you use the eternalize ability, you are technically casting that card from your graveyard and the creature is a zombie in addition to it's types. Would that be considered casting a zombie, or are you casting the creature spell and it becomes a zombie when it enters?

Hey! Apologies in advance for the shameless self-advert, but I recommend you take a quick look at my Zombie deck Another Zombie Apocalypse?. It's a pretty cut-and-dry Mono-Black Zombies deck, and should have a few good ideas you could pull from it.

Outside of that, I highly recommend using Havengul Lich. It doesn't seem like much at first, but another Gisa and Geralf is always a good thing, right (And this one is a Zombie!)?

If you ever feel like throwing away all of your friends, try adding Rooftop Storm. Makes all your Zombinos free, allowing for some pretty great shenanigans with Gisa, Geralf, and the Lich. ;)
