Sedris, the Traitor King Discussion

DrukenReaps on The one true zombie master

Zombies might be the most supported tribe in magic... Check out this page for lots of options

https://edhrec.com/tribes/zombies

Here are some that I like

The Scarab God, Varina, Lich Queen, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Sedris, the Traitor King, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Lim-Dul the Necromancer

Something I would recommend for sure is colors.

most useful > >> or >>> Least useful

is most important

is a great secondary

and seem roughly equal to me. Most the white support is more recent than the red support.

might have something worthwhile because golgari is a thing but this will probably be the most limited.

On this side, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice has created 1,000,000...,000 tokens, let's say with Sunstrike Legionnaire and Presence of Gond. Over there, Riku of Two Reflections has been spamming Displace next to Doubling Season and Eternal Witness. Sedris, the Traitor King gets annoyed and drops Last One Standing. What's the best way to find out who survives?

if you want zombie tribal i would suggest Thraximundar, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Varina, Lich Queen or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, as nekusar is honestly the worst possible zombie commander creature wise. even Sedris, the Traitor King and Lord of Tresserhorn are far better zombie generals.. and the former of the 2 is much more suited to a reanimation creature base anyways..

Sundial of the Infinite is a card that is good in Sedris, the Traitor King decks, and I feel like it is also really good in a Gyrus deck. If you find a card that just isn't performing as well as you'd like, I would give that a try.

Although it does say to exile at the end of combat... That's a little irritating.

I'd go with a graveyard deck of some sort like others have said. I actually strongly considered using him in my own Mairsil, the Pretender deck, his random discard with draw is advantageous due to how cheap he is. Other commanders that might like him are Sedris, the Traitor King, Wort, Boggart Auntie, Bladewing the Risen, and Feldon of the Third Path. All for his ability to come out quickly and start putting stuff in the grave.

You want a deck that will remove the opponents deck while it controls what they’re doing and steadily building a zombie swarm?

A couple important red zombies will be Neheb, the Eternal and Wildfire Eternal. You could play Sedris, the Traitor King to bring stuff back on the cheap, and even Liliana's Reaver, Siren of the Silent Song, Order of Yawgmoth, and Slavering Nulls. All these guys getting through will be made easier if you have Zombie Master and Graf Harvest too. Undead Alchemist can make more zombies while they eat all the brains too...

Urgoros, the Empty One seems to do a useful thing, and there are a lot of specters from Blizzard Specter and Blazing Specter to Sedraxis Specter, Liliana's Specter and Hypnotic Specter.

Then you can play planeswalkers like Liliana, Death's Majesty to reanimate stuff repeatedly and the one Bolas does it too. Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial are all good, and even Molten Primordial can be if you have a way to sacrifice the stuff you steal like Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Carrion Feeder or Corpse Harvester.

Spirits on Budget Thraximundar - EDH $50

4 months ago

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.

Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.

Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.

Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.

Archfiend of Depravity $1.01 can dominate this format, you've seen it from my Glissa, the Traitor deck.

Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.

Soul's Fire also feels wrong, a turn you cast Thraximundar you won't have mana for it, only a handful of creatures going to deal enough to be of consequence.

Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.

Nighthowler is a better Wight of Precinct Six (you can run both), he is CMC3, but he also counts your graveyard, and he also has Bestow if you have the extra mana (modular)

Consuming Aberration is a higher CMC, but he can also build the graveyards, remember that time SolomonsEfreet had him out. But high CMC. $1.90 too.

Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,

You have Fleshbag Marauder & Merciless Executioner but missing their good buddy Slum Reaper $0.19.

Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig are great for color fixing and ramping. Wayfarer's Bauble goes onto the battlefield for CMC1 more.

Deadeye Navigator has lots of positive applications in your build, but he's $2.15. I won't list everyone, you can read the LTB/ETB guys, but Peregrine Drake is infinite ETB & infinite mana.

Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.

Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.

You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .

Vona's Hunger was pretty good when SolomonsEfreet played it.

Diabolic Tutor for Torment of Hailfire or the other half of Rite of Replication / Gray Merchant of Asphodel win-con.

Dark Petition is $2.32 but can assist with casting the Gray Merchant of Asphodel, I also don't mind Razaketh's Rite because I just cycle it for if it's drawn early on.

Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.

I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.

One of the nice things with Thraximundar is you should get left alone early on because your not an immediate threat vs. someone like your Xenagos.

I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Havengul Lich has some recursion built in, but wouldn't say he's really that synergistic with Thraximundar but he can target others graveyards.

He's not a Xenagos, God of Revels but a good serviceable Commander in $50 budget. Crosis, the Purger no way lol, Sedris, the Traitor King would also work but he the same CMC anyway,

Arvail on What is your biggest mtg ...

Lucky they hold value well. It's not like you're burdened by useless cards. Very strange of you to put literally thousands into a format you're not very familiar with, however.

My biggest mess up? Uhhh. I suppose it has to do with my competitive Grixis splinter twin EDH deck. A few years back, the list wasn't recognized by the cEDH community or anything and myself and some other people came up with it independent of one another. Basically it's a dedicated combo list that uses the highly redundant Kiki Jiki + Deceiver Exarch combo. The list works because the combo has many functionally identical cards, many of which can be cast from the graveyard as well as from the hand. This makes the deck incredibly resilient and capable of pushing for wins from multiple angles.

This list originally used Sedris, the Traitor King as its commander. I was really happy with my list and played with it for years until Kess, Dissident Mage was printed and prompted me to take another look at the deck.

To my absolute horror, I noticed I had originally completely neglected Phyrexian Delver from my list. The reason this matters is that casting or reanimating Phyrexian Delver can reanimate Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. You can then tap Kiki Jiki to copy the Delver to reanimate Pestermite which then untaps Kiki Jiki. You can then use Kiki to create infinite hasty Pestermites.

FOR YEARS, I HAD USED Victimize AS ONE OF THE EASIEST WAYS TO WIN QUICKLY WHEN I COULD HAVE SIMPLY BEEN USING THE DELVER THAT WHOLE TIME!

To make things worse, I even spoke authoritatively about the deck and helped champion it as a worthwhile deck to play even before the printing of Kess and had left my lists public for others to peruse as an example. I guarantee some people have laughed at me for this mistake over the course of the last few years.
