Stitcher Geralf Discussion

bushido_man96 on Gisa and Geralf

Thanks for the thoughts,guys. dlamars, I like your suggestions on Living Death and Noxious Ghoul, and I was wavering on Liliana. I do want to keep Stitcher Geralf, for flavor and theme.

KeelHaul10, good suggestions. I didn't know how well Endless Ranks of the Dead would work. Soulquake looks like a winner! Which Liliana are you referring to?

And a side note on the mana base: it will change. I've got dual lands to run, just have to dig them out. I will update it soon.

Hey, I have a very not budget list for gisa and geralf but it's full of combos if you need any ideas:Life is Milling Me.

My suggestions from your list are to be careful adding Noxious Ghoul since it kills your commander. I like Living Death as a board wipe instead. Also Stitcher Geralf and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip could be replaced imo.

I think you should add in Bridge from Below to get extra zombies when yours die, and Relentless Dead to bring them back. Also, Stitcher Geralf will give you zombies and put cards in your graveyard.

hfvalenz on G&G's B&B

Hey man, I'm playing G&G at my LGS lately and they've been running very good, they're the only truly zombie tribal commander in my opinion. There are some cards you should definitely get in your deck:

  • Sunken Hollow and Drowned Catacomb instead of Dimir Guildgate and Submerged Boneyard. These lands will enter the battlefield untapped most of the time.

  • Piranha Marsh should be cut, even a basic Swamp it's better. 1 life means nothing in Commander, an untapped land beats that EVERY time.

  • Unknown Shores fixes your colors, true, but you'll be tapping 2 lands for 1 mana.Sunken Ruins does the job needed best than everything else, but it's expensive. Darkwater Catacombs is a very good alternative, and it's easier to find and much cheaper, since it just got reprinted in C16.

  • Skyline Cascade has an interesting effect, didn't know that one it may worth trying it. I still play Halimar Depths to take a little look on what will be going to the graveyard before casting G&G.

  • I'm pretty sure you're aware of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, but that shouldn't stop me from mentioning it. Does marvels with Zombie Master.

  • Related on the previous Urborg point, it's close friend Cabal Coffers worths every dollar you spend getting it. And while we're talking about lots-of-mana-producing lands, I shall include in this point Crypt of Agadeem and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, since you're more inclined to black than blue. Fatestitcher will untap them and there you go, more mana than can be spent.

  • Wonder, because flying zombies are truly wonderful. Corpse Connoisseur can go and get it right where it belongs.

  • Fleshbag Marauder, just keep casting him and sacrificing himself, get rid of pesky indestructibles or hexproof or whatnot. Works well with your Dictate of Erebos.

  • Convolute and Cancel should go. 3 mana can pay for lots of better counterspells, just to name a few: Dissipate, Dissolve, Hinder, Spell Crumple, Forbid (my favorite). If the double blue is an issue, then you got options as well: Negate, Arcane Denial, Swan Song...

  • Zombie Infestation requires lots of fuel to spawn zombies. Phyrexian Arena, Rhystic Study will give you lots of cards. Secrets of the Dead will give you an extra one when using G&G's ability.

  • You need reanimation spells. Living Death is a classic one that can act as mass removal as well, but there's also Patriarch's Bidding and Zombie Apocalypse, the most flavorful of the three.

  • Lastly, since I was talking about flavor, G&G on their independent cards aren't that bad, especially Ghoulcaller Gisa. And if you got them both working together, you can spawn a big zombie with Stitcher Geralf and sac it to Gisa for lots of tokens.

Hope any of these helps, though most of them aren't that new of ideas.

stereonoise on WIP - Whispers of the Dead

Some suggestions i've thought of are:

CREATURES~~~~

Phyrexian Delver - It's a zombies that brings back other creatures from your graveyard. super helpful to get that party pumping.(not sure if it comes in foil or not)

Geralf's Masterpiece - Flying zombie that can be a good discard outlet and easy to recur.

Coffin Queen - The queen of resurrection, she's a zombie herself and can easily bring back anyones creatures.(not sure if it comes in foil or not)

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - This is the liliana you wanna play. When another creature dies you get a zombie and her planewalker abilities -X bring back a creature with cmc X and -8 you get an emblem where a creature dies it comes back to your battlefield

Liliana's Reaver - This guy is a must be blocked card, but what's that? deathtouch. Too block or not too block that's the deicision everyone around you will have to fear. If not they'll have to lose a card and you get a zombie buddy.

Diregraf Colossus - Cast a zombie? why not another zombie! This guy makes all your zombies come with a friend. and if you top deck with half your library in the bin he'll be big to boot.

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth - Anti selfmill. He's probably the best to include since emrakul is banned and ulamog is soso. Makes you shuffle your graveyard back into your library.

LANDS~~~~~So we'll go for the easy ones: Drowned Catacomb, Woodland Cemetery and Hinterland Harbor. You can also have Sunken Hollow which has swamp/island subtype so it's fetchable and relatively easy to enter untapped. Unfortunately you can't get the U/G or G/B version because they don't exist (yet). There's also Choked Estuary for a dual land to easily enter untapped.

CARD SELECTION~~~~~~

Top cards i could find for card selection are Tracker's Instincts and Forbidden Alchemy, these are good because you can flashback them if you need. Some other good ones I found are Grapple with the Past and Grisly Salvage which are instants and Mulch which is sorcery.

CUTS~~~~~~~~~

Top cuts i can see of my own opinion, you can disagree if you want.

1.Perpetual Timepiece or Elixir of Immortality - Elixir is probably the better thing to cut. IF YOU CUT YOU CAN ADD EITHER KOZILEK OR Laboratory Maniac.

2.Deathrite Shaman - Just doesn't seem too great to me in commander. Also not a zombie

3.Yavimaya Elder - not a zombie.

4.Army of the Damned - too costly.

5.Magus of the Will - He seems very costly, 3 mana to exile himself and then you gotta pay more mana to cast more things. If you're getting a lot of mana you can do some cool things.

6.Stitcher Geralf - relies a lot on the opponents having strong creatures and actually hitting them reliably. (Not a foil)

7.Undead Warchief - this dude is a 4cmc 1/1. his abilities are nice but damn is he weak as soggy bread.

Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch was actually one of the first commanders I played with with just a bunch of random red and black cards I had. Special place.

Rhys the Redeemed I've seen quite a bit of actually. A tuned Rhys deck is frightening.

While not obscure, some partner combinations I haven't seen. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder paired with Tymna the Weaver actually seems pretty powerful as their abilities compliment each other well.

Stitcher Geralf also looks like fun with the potential to be powerful but nothing too threatening.

DemonDragonJ on List of Commanders by Home ...

Now that WotC's Commander products are an annual product (I still refer to the format itself as Elder Dragon Highlander/EDH, because I was introduced to it by that name), I wish to make a list of all the legendary creatures, or commanders, who have appeared in those sets, by plane of origin.

I shall be including both new legendary creatures introduced in those sets, as well as previous cards that were reprinted in those sets (which includes Commander's Arsenal), but I will not include legendary creatures that have not been printed in a Commander set, even if other creatures from their plane have been in those sets. I shall first list the planes known to be home to at least one commander, alphabetically by name, and then list each commander from that plane, alphabetically by name. If a commander is from a specific region or belongs to a specific faction on that plane, I shall list that region or faction in parenthesis after their name.

Commanders Show

What does everyone else think of this list? It took a great amount of time to write this list, so I hope that you appreciate it. I would not at all be surprised to learn that I mistakenly listed a commander's home plane as unknown, when it is actually known, so please let me know if I made any mistakes, and I also shall add new legendary creatures to this list whenever WotC releases a new Commander set.
