Rooftop Storm Discussion

Wizno on Purified Necromancy

Hey there fellow necromancer! I am also running the Lich Queen (long may she reign) and she truly is the pinnacle of all things undead. I like the deck you've got going on but I do have a few suggestions for you based on my own experience running zombie tribal for a while. First off, you are missing the best piece of zombie tech ever: Rooftop Storm. It's just plain unfair (for everyone else) and lets you cast Varina for free from the command zone (or at least cheaper since you have to pay command tax still). While I'm still figuring out my own configuration for my deck, I've found that Debtors' Knell is an interesting card and can be quite useful in reanimating targets you may have milled. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is not a zombie but boy oh boy does she make me happy to be running white now. A super buff AND a mini-board wipe is something to be feared. I would recommend adding in Cabal Coffers if you can as you can generate insane amounts of black mana and that's what the deck is hungry for (well that and brains). I know that some folks don't like him but I think it's always worth running Risen Executioner to get another lord buff. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is another powerful zombie I would consider running too. A few pet cards for me personally are Prized Amalgam and Scourge of Nel Toth as they are constantly recurring threats or solid sac fodder. I would also suggest adding in Unholy Grotto to get back any zombie you may need again or save a key zombie from a Bojuka Bog. Vault of the Archangel is another utility land I'm exploring right now in my own deck but with a go-wide style deck like ours, it seems like it could be a nice inclusion. While Varina herself is card advantage, I would consider adding in some additional card draw effects like Painful Truths, Read the Bones, Necropotence, Rhystic Study, or Phyrexian Arena. If you would like a another win-con option, white does open up Approach of the Second Sun and Varina's ability can help dig you faster to that second casting. I hope this all helps!

I would suggest Gravecrawler for your one combo. Diregraf Captain or a similar effect and Gravecrawler with Rooftop Storm for infinite drain or direct damage via etb or ltb triggers, depending on what zombie besides the crawler you use.

Havengul Lich is brutal with Rooftop Storm and is GG with Sidisi, Undead Vizier in Hand or GY or Ashnod's Altar in play.

hello, I use to play grimgrin as commander for my EDH zombie deck, but now i switched over to the scarab god ;) Bontu's Monument this often worked better than urza's incubator as it is also helps out the none zombie creatures. + it enables your zombie combo storms with casting zombies.

Sedraxis Alchemist together with Rooftop Storm also makes a loop of infinitly casting this zombie incase gravecrawler gets exiled. the alchemist also works as removal when u have a blue permanent

Graveborn Muse will really get you alot of cards and you can get rid of her with all your sacrifice outlets if she gets dangerous.

Fleshbag Marauder with gisa en geralf i think this cards is unbelievably strong

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a tutor for a card on a stick (a strong stick) can be brought back with gisa and geralf making it extra strong.

Josu Vess, Lich Knight at 4 mana he's a great zombie, and at 10 mana (end game) he will bring a whole army with him

Kindred Discovery a must include for tribal decks with blue

Cards i would personally not play are:

-stronghold assassin (reason he has to wait a turn before he can tap and work)

-Liliana's Reaver

-Endless Ranks of the dead (looks amazing on paper but always when i put it on the field it did nothing as i had not enough zombies to feed it)

-Dark Ritual

-Preordain

-Black Market (also pretty slow by my own experience)

beakedbard on C18 - Varina, Busted or ...

She's not broken but I am looking forward to having Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Solemnity in a zombie deck with blue support as well for things like The Scarab God and Rooftop Storm.

I also play a Zombie EDH Tribal deck, which started out as a budget list and has evolved over the years.

I'm going to make a bunch of suggestions, and I'm trying to keep each suggestion below $5. Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, and Undead Warchief are the most affordable Zombie anthems, and they add quite a lot of power to your Zombie army. Diregraf Colossus, Noxious Ghoul, Plague Belcher, and Vengeful Dead are excellent combo enablers for Gravecrawler shenanigans. They are also strong on their own merits, but turn into win-cons when you're sac/summoning Gravecrawler multiple times per turn. Cryptbreaker and Zombie Master adds quite a bit of utility. Graveborn Muse can be used to draw a lot over a turn or two, then sacrificed to stop the effect. Wonder in your graveyard gives you a flying Zombie army!

Buried Alive is a great fetch card. If you throw Wonder, Risen Executioner, and Gravecrawler all in the graveyard, then you basically just searched your library for 3 cards and put them in your hand for 3 mana. Great little combo. Plague Wind + Grave Betrayal is a fun little late game combo that takes control of all your opponents creatures, buffs them, and turns them into zombies. Each card is a great late game bomb on it's own as well. Rooftop Storm is basically the best non-creature Zombie card in the game, definitely include that bad boy. Underworld Connections is a pretty solid draw engine. Bontu's Monument is a great addition to any Zombie EDH list. Vanquisher's Banner is a solid card that provides a lot of value. Whip of Erebos can really save you as a way to gain life.

Hopefully I've given you a pretty good upgrade list. It takes time to get your perfect list put together, but I always find it helpful to have a good list of cards to upgrade to.

Sporkity on The Scarab God: Thank you for your creatures.

Door of Destinies - Can be fun in tribal decks and with 22 creature spells it seems pretty good. Although your tokens wont add counters they do get the +X+X. And can get nuts in a long game where you have graveyard shenanigans for your zombie creatures.

Vanquisher's Banner - A slightly worse draw engine than Kindred Discovery but gives all zombies +1+1. Can also help give your Rooftop Storm more gas

Deck looks pretty fun though! Best of luck!

Rapid Hybridization is a cheaper Pongify and I have onenill give to you. Cerebral Vortex is good, not sure how Elixir of Immortality synergizes unless I’m missing some sort of graveyard shenanigans. Rooftop Storm let’s you play nekusar for free besides commander tax, but I’m not sure how well it fits in the deck. Check out Magus of the Wheel, Dragon Mage andWhirlpool Warrior. Btw I noticed the guy from mox was running Dragon Mage. Library of Leng. That’s all I got for now but I’ll let you know if I find anything else when I take a better look later
