Sedris, the Traitor King Discussion

brandonsperry25 on Army of Bolas - The Scarab God Zombie EDH

1 week ago

All great points.

I think I am taking a little bit of Sedris, the Traitor King and playing that graveyard game with this deck. He is my main EDH deck currently, and I really like the idea of discarding zombies to the graveyard. Then the off chance I can't have The Scarab God bring them out, at least I have a way of bringing them back with Gisa and Geralf and Havengul Lich.

Dralnu, Lich Lord is more for just overwhelming with Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse.I don't have the worry of Blasphemous Act in my playgroup, but that is a good card to be worried about. It could really mess the flow up.

I'll continue playtesting what I have and keep an eye on this deck to see if there are any other things you update that may fit into my playing style. Thanks again!

Also, nine EDH decks, I don't know how you find the time to build them. I have one more I am working on. Zurgo Helmsmasher will be mostly speed and giving him to my opponents with Assault Suit so they can keep the pressure on. I can see him getting out of control fairly quickly so it will be nice to have another deck to lean on when they get annoyed with that. Venser, Shaper Savant didn't make many friends. I ended up busting it up after a few games when I kicked Rite of Replication on Magmatic Force with 8 players. Needless to say, it was a downer for the rest of the table.

Like i said in the original post, nekusar hates creatures, in fact he kind of hates anything living/not dead lol. he is a wizard spell commander and his ability revolves around draw spells, therefore i would run 2 or 3 nekusar and very few actual combat creatures

Nekusar is a wizard, he isnt meant for combat he is meant to augment spells :) thraximundar and gravecrawler are good cards, but those are meant for zombie tribal. Which is usually dimir, but thrax is a different deck entirely and costs too much to hard cast so basically is asking for reanimation

If you want a zombie tribal deck, Sedris, the Traitor King or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is your man, both have a place in my heart but sadly zombie tribal is very slow and often doesnt perform well.. i used to play grimgrin but his performance dissapointed me and he is the "best" zombie tribal commander, even invested/tuned he still was meh :/

Personally, id remove most of the creatures outside of nekusar and replace it with rituals and wheels

To make a long story short, If i were to make a budget list itd look like:

Enchantment 6

3x Waste Not

3x Megrim

Creature 9

3x Nekusar, the Mindrazer

4x Nightscape Familiar

2x Archfiend of Ifnir

Mass draw/discard spells 10

3x Reforge the Soul

3x Burning Inquiry

2x Windfall

2x Whispering Madness

Counterspell + mass draw/graveyard shuffle 8

4x Commit / Memory

4x Arcane Denial

Ritual goodstuff 7

4x Dark Ritual

3x Seething Song

20 land

2x Bojuka Bog

3x Cephalid Coliseum

3x Crumbling Necropolis

3x Crypt of the Eternals

4x mountain

3x island

2x swamp

If you're talking reanimator then Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a front runner. Some more Commanders that would work for reanimation could be Chainer, Dementia Master, and The Scarab God, and Sedris, the Traitor King. Those are my thoughts when I think reanimate style decks.

Delta-117 on Looking For a New Commander

Then what about Sedris, the Traitor King? Just thought of this one, as a friend of mine started playing a deck with them, and I have to say it's pretty nasty to see a Void Winnower or something similar played, and or later reanimated.

-aggressive (Yes)

-have an engine/synergy (Yes, as there is a clear focus on the unearth mechanic).

-not use artifacts so much (Not necessary really, but Panharmonicon, Conjurer's Closet, Sundial of the Infinite and Embalmer's Tools help out.

-not be combo or stax (Yes)

Bonus points for commanders that are:-Easy on the wallet (Yes)

-Use the graveyard or blink (Yes, a lot of).

-are not needed 100% for victory (They are not entirely necessary, however I do admit it helps a lot to have them in play for sure).

Aethaleon on Does a card care how ...

If I unearth a creature with Sedris, the Traitor King and then use Helvault on the same creature, will I get the creature back from Helvault or not?

OneItsStarted on Mimic Vat and Unearth

1 month ago

Suppose I use the ability of Sedris, the Traitor King to unearth a creature (anything, Storm Crow even) and I have Mimic Vat in play. If the unearthed creature dies to something like combat or a sacrifice effect, am I able to Imprint it to Mimic Vat, rather than have it be exiled to the unearth trigger?
