Sidisi, Undead Vizier Discussion

Gbot: Try Sidisi, Undead Vizier. Another tutor isn't going to hurt, you get a deathtouch attacker and it gives you a sac outlet for Anger or re-targeting Saskia.

I'm a Meren player as well, and there are quite a few cards that I really enjoy playing. First, I'd recommend Viscera Seer. It gives you a good sac outlet that you can recur easily, and it allows you to sift through your library a little bit as a bonus. Caustic Caterpillar is great artifact/enchantment removal that sacrifices itself so that you can reuse it with Meren. Satyr Wayfinder secures a land drop while throwing stuff into your graveyard to later be revived. Reclamation Sage is an auto-include in any green deck I build as an easy destroy an artifact or enchantment, and with Meren you can keep reusing it, same as Caustic Caterpillar. Merciless Executioner is great as a second copy of Fleshbag Marauder for consistency. Catacomb Sifter is good for both 1 time ramp and a little more scrying while you're sacrificing, while putting down 2 bodies. Solemn Simulacrum is exactly what you want to be doing, having both a relevant ETB and LTB effect that are great. Gonti, Lord of Luxury is a really fun card that gives you potentially great value while yelling "don't attack me" with deathtouch. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is an amazing card, allowing you to sacrifice a creature while getting a tutor. Pretty sweet stuff. Bane of Progress can be backbreaking against most decks who are just trying to build up a crazy amount of artifacts and enchantments. I know that this is an absolute MVP in my deck, and it is usually one of the cards I tutor for. If you need to make room for anything, I think the most underwhelming portion of your deck resides in your instant spells. Not to say all of them are bad, but I'd take out cards like Consume Strength, Naturalize (if you add the enchantment/artifact hate I suggested), and Ultimate Price (it won't hit most commanders). Tainted Remedy should also be cut in my opinion, as it is highly situational. If you'd like, you can always look at my Meren list to get ideas (although I still need to update it to match my current list). Good luck on your build!

illumfolly: Hatred is the path to the dark side. But we're in black, so we embrace that. The card is awesome, and I've already included it :)

I'm honestly not too much of a fan of Abhorrent Overlord :( His tokens arrive too late in the game to be super helpful, and I'm looking for the slow-grind repeatable token makers right now.

Smokestack is an extremely powerful card, but for the moment I'm trying to stay away from the really hard stax/lockdown cards (like Contamination). I'll consider adding it if this deck gets more competitive.

And I'm considering Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Has he played well for you?

Glistening Oil: I don't want to be THAT guy who plays infect. Fallen Ideal is interesting! I hadn't considered that before. I need to test more to see if I generally have a lot of creatures out at any given point (which would make it worth it). Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed is too expensive, and Yawgmoth's Will is something I prefer in combo decks.

Thanks for the comment! Sorry for the somewhat terse response, I haven't had much time to comment on this deck recently and the comments are piling up :(

neolights2363: What noncreature removal would you suggest? I'm already playing Gate to Phyrexia, which is almost the only artifact removal in black. Most of the removal in colorless is really, really expensive (in terms of mana) so I don't think it's good enough.

Now, with regards to equipment - I'm trying to make this deck distinct from my Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER* deck, so I don't want to focus too much on equipment. With that in mind,

Loxodon Warhammer: Honestly, I generally prefer the non-lifelink trample from O-Naginata for 3 mana less. I'll test it, though

Sword of Vengeance: Overcosted, and haste/first strike are not too handy on my commander.

Sword of the Animist is sweet, but since my commander comes down early, it doesn't fit well into my curve. Again, though, I'll consider it.

Infiltration Lens: I prefer straight unblockable TBH.

Dark Prophecy: I've been back-and-forth on this one. It's only useful when I already have a degree of setup (tokens on field and a sac outlet), whereas Phyrexian Arena is useful at all points in the game. I'm undecided here, and I'd love to find slots in both, but...

Dictate of Erebos: Already in of course :)

Sidisi, Undead Vizier: I'd rather play Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor TBH.

Bloodsoaked Champion/Reassembling Skeleton: I cannot decide on these without a little more testing, but at the moment I'm worried that holding up the 2 mana might be a problem. We'll have to see. Bloodghast is so good because it costs no mana to recur it.

Karn, Silver Golem: Oooh, interesting!

Thanks for the comment! :)

TheRedGoat: Personally, I think Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath might be the worst black planeswalker of all time. I'd love to be proved wrong - what do you like about him?

EternalBrewmaster: I feel that Damnation is a strict upgrade over Languish, and that I'm playing a decent array of board wipes already. Which card would you cut for Languish? -X/-X wipes don't play nice with my commander :(

I thought that Overseer of the Damned costs too much mana - do you feel it's worth seven? Also, I don't like the art :(

Harvester of Souls doesn't work well with my tokens, though...Should I put Dark Prophecy instead? It also doesn't die to my board wipes.

And yeah, this deck had a good run in the top rankings, hehe. Now time for further promotion! :)

hoardofnotions on Mazirek, Shaman of the Swarm ($60 budget)

1 week ago

First of all thank you all for commenting! I really appreciate you taking the time to suggest things to help improve my deck!!!

Mj3913 Yavimaya Elder looks like a great choice! I think i'm going to run Hardened Scales for now, the cheaper (mana) card seems like a good play early and something tricky to play later when i'm setting up an alpha attack. I also hope the new card Winding Constrictor ends up cheaper (price) than Hardened Scales so i can make that swap

Triton 1. Putrefy vs Shriekmaw? Putrefy is much cheaper (price) and is an instant so it's got a leg up, but Shriekmaw can be more easily reanimated and has evasion. Any thoughts on which to run?2. Blood Artist is a little of out the budget right now. I run 15 cards that cost more than a dollar

and I think all the the cards in the spoiler are ?stronger? than Blood Artist. Do you see anything that's not pulling its weight in the budget?3. I think Noosegraf Mob will be pretty good. The only downside is encountering board wipes. Although the mob would be a good card to rebuild after a wrath.4. I really want to build a morph package to swap in whenever i want to surprise my playgroup. It'll be fun to see if they're as inefficient as i remember them being.

seb9011 1. I had just recently swapped out Viscera Seer for Carrion Feeder for budget reasons, do you know of any other cheap (price) sac outlets?2. Creakwood Liege and Ophiomancer are also outside the budget, though they are definitly good cards that i would want to run with no budget3. I'll pose you the same question, Putrefy or Shriekmaw? evoke is a clever way of triggering Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest that i hadn't thought of, though it is much pricier.4. I really like reanimation effects, especially because golgari has soo many good ones! I'm hoping Phyrexian Reclamation and Strands of Night provide the heavy lifting i need from budget cards.5. I get what you're saying about value cards, and i would argue that grave titan is on theme with my deck though sadly out of budget. Sidisi, Undead Vizier also falls into that category unfortunately. 6. Krosan Grip is fighting Tribute to the Wild for a slot. i'm running alot of artifact and enchantment destruction attached to my creatures so i'm inclined to the cheaper (both!) option. 7. Savra, Queen of the Golgari is a cool option but again i'm running with a very strict budget (another theme I'm discovering lol) and she needs the right circumstances to be good. Grave Pact effects are super good in this deck some maybe i look into another, situational one.8. Thanks again for the time, suggestions and thoughts!!!

Broviticus on The Endless March

I am running a similar deck right now with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born as my commander. There is a lot of plays you can make with this deck Sidisi, Undead Vizier + Rooftop Storm + Gisa and Geralf is basically a free tutor every single turn if you choose to use Sidisi as the extort target and play her out of the graveyard every turn to get any card you want into your hand. I also suggest adding Vengeful Dead which is basically a larger Diregraf Captain. A sweet combo I've seen on here is using Gravecrawler as a sac outlet for Phyrexian Altar while having Diregraf Captain or Vengeful Dead on the board and infinitely sacing Gravecrawler and killing your opponent. If you through in a Secrets of the Dead you can use the Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar Combo to draw out as many cards as you want. That same combo works with Diregraf Colossus on the board as well. Step 1) Play Gravecrawler Step 2). Play Phyrexian Altar Step 3) Play Diregraf Colossus and gain as many 2/2 Zombie Tokens your little rotting heart desires.
