Silent Gravestone Discussion
1 week ago
So, initially I looked passed this brew, but after a few moments, I realised you might be onto something. Maybe converting this deck into a Taxes style deck. Adding a couple of artifacts like Silent Gravestone Treasure Map Flip with Karn, Scion of Urza alongside Settle the Wreckage for added removal maybe Kaya can be a win con.

Warlock1258 Before I get into an analysis of Lazav's placement, I would like to rebuttal you and ask what your dream sequence is to not only turn 3 somebody, but to do so consistently. Yes, turn 3 wins are in fact possible, but to turn 3 consistently and reliably is an entirely different question. Lazav is in great tutor and draw colors, but his combo packages require a lot of set up and pieces to pull off, and if any one of those pieces are interrupted by getting exiled for example, you have to move on to another pile most of the time. My list is nowhere near being considered an optimal cEDH list, because I never intended it to play in a cEDH environment. However, I can confidently say that my game plan isn't far off from that of a fully optimized list, and what little improvements I would make if I were to optimize the list would not make the list noticeably more consistent. Tier 3 is appropriate in my book, I wanted him to be placed in tier 2 when he came out, but he gets stopped dead in his tracks by Rest in Peace, Silent Gravestone, Cursed Totem, and many others. Again, this is a short answer, but keep in mind that I have piloted the deck for many months now, and as much as I'd love to see him move up, I realistically don't see it as comparable to other tier 2 and above decks. It is very simply, the glassiest glass cannon around. Buried Alive decks are a dying breed I'm afraid due to higher relevance of graveyard hate in the meta, and backups to a failed Necrotic Ooze combo with another package consisting of Invisible Stalker/Vector Asp/Phyrexian Dreadnought are a little too mana intensive and janky for competitive play because that sort of backup requires multiple combat phases which translates to multiple turns to kill the table which is not ideal by any means.
I hope that clarifies some things for you, feel free to ask me if some things still aren't clear to you. I would love to provide a more in depth explanation for why I feel from experience that Lazav isn't quite tier 2, but I hope what I have shared here is enough of a concise answer to your question. Tier 3 is still good and viable against competitive decks, so don't let that confuse you. It's just that his combo packages isn't quite as condensed or as direct as other combo-centric decks in higher tiers, and are often highly interruptible as a result.

You might like Grafdigger's Cage, Nihil Spellbomb, Relic of Progenitus, or Silent Gravestone more than Rest in Peace for a sideboard graveyard hate. If a static graveyard exiling effect is on the battlefield and for some reason Emrakul dies or gets milled or discarded, it would get exiled with RIP instead of going to the graveyard so you would not be able to shuffle it into your library to recur it. Scavenger Grounds is also good to have graveyard hate on a land.

Profet93: You bring up a good point actually. The reason I do not run Helm of Obedience combo is because, it does not break parity with our lock out cards. Most of the deck is able to operate around our lock outs. We run cards like Null Rod and Stony Silence and if they are out that work make the combo sort of hard to use around those cards. So, I ended up dropping it from the win con list. Also, Sol Ring is not on the list either because we do not really need it since we run the better version of it which is Mana Crypt and also our pesky lock out cards have us trying to not rely to much on mana rocks.
Rest in Peace is a great card, I actually had it in the list prior to some of the updates. The main concern with it was that it seemed to hurt me more often then it hurt others. I will definitely bring it back in or using something else like Silent Gravestone or Ashes of the Abhorrent. That way my deck can work through it and not worry to much about losing cards to exile. The reason for this is I am thinking of adding my Timetwister in this deck because it works well with our Eye of the Storm plays. While also giving us another wheel to refill out hand and refresh our deck with old cards. I am keeping this sort of under 2,000 dollars (own personal goal).

This is a good insigt on the deck, I will definitely consider it. However, some cards are a little outside of my budget - I don't consider lands to be primary in deckbuilding.
I have changed list a little before I read the comment, and I have made alternative list with comment included, however, to make space for Tezzeret the Seeker and Reshape I decided to cut Phyrexian Revoker and Silent Gravestone.

Isolate and Silent Gravestone might be decent sideboard options in the event you are running in to recursion decks or white weenie. Isolate hits a lot of targets in white weenie. The legions landing being a big one. And gravestone just about crushes B/G recursion, and quasiduplicate lists.

FOr your sideboard, against B/G id run a set of or at least three. Silent Gravestone. Also if you were having problems with a flyer deck or a deck with a lot of removal you could run a playset of Blinding Fog as an offset in the trade offs or a pseudo counter by giving your guys hexproof. Plummet f you need some extra drop down against the flyers but I dont think it will be needed as they will be hella busy trying to keep from getting their shit pushed in.

Yeah, that happens with mill, it's a careful balance between not letting their bombs hit the board and crushing their deck into the grave. I have also started to sideboard Silent Gravestone to keep Golgari from using their Undergrowth ability.
