Slavering Nulls Discussion

Epicurus on Goblin Pact, the EDH Edition

ulmo, I've been thinking about your recent suggestions a bit. First of all, yes, I think Bedevil over The Elderspell for sure. The Elderspell is more attractive only really because getting to the ultimate of any of my planeswalkers is almost a wincon. But unless I see a lot of planeswalkers on the other side it really does me little good.

Syphon Mind would be good for the draw, but discard isn't actually a priority for me. Toll of the Invasion seemed good because it's targeted, and because of the amass ability.

Liliana's Reaver and Grave Titan both sound good for my other EDH graveyard themed deck, Cleverly Named Graveyard Deck, because it has a bit more mana ramp. There's definitely some ramp in this deck, but I'm trying to keep the curve here as low as I can get away with. However, Slavering Nulls does for sure sound like a good addition.

I like both Bedevil and The Elderspell, however, because you only have four planeswalkers, at the end of the day I think Bedevil is the stronger choice unless your playgroup rocks a bunch of planeswalkers. There's also Syphon Mind for multi-player if you're still interested in some discard. Then there's Slavering Nulls, a personal favorite, budget-friendly option who's both a gobbie and a zombie. I also highly recommend Liliana's Reaver... and a Grave Titan if you can afford 'em.

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.

The deck seems inconsistent now, but your zombie theme is stronger. There are lots of one ofs that don't necessarily have very good synergy, or do the job efficiently. Some of the choices are interesting and are decent casual cards that make people think (Cry of Contrition) but aren't exceptionally powerful. Too many four drops.

If you want to go Zombies and discard, you could look at Slavering Nulls. It's a card that unfortunately dies to a swift breeze, but it does what you'd want; represent as a zombie and have the spectre ability. Made better when followed up with something like Death Baron, but that cards not particularly "budget."
