Spirits on Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH

7 months ago

Hi Chill_Casual,

Appreciate the recommendations. Do or Die $1.79 will be a bit tough, can hit several creatures, but probably miss the creature that the real problem.

Call to the Grave $1.00 is nice because it's recursive in nature, wish I had more Zombie to support it, but Glissa, the Traitor I try and keep her on the board, have to evaluate a financial cut to make this fit.

Syphon Flesh is good, CMC5 so will figure out what can come out, still need more swamp ramping, and perhaps a targeted removal. But this could be a good start, also supports the Call to the Grave.

Lazav is a super cool commander to build around and I like where you're going with the deck. However, you've got a really high average cmc with VERY little ramp. You've also got very little card draw in the two best colors for it.

Ramp:

Card Draw:

Removal:

Cards I'd take out:

  • Coercion - that's a lot of mana for EDH single target discard
  • Take Possession - 7 mana...

A good counterspell for this type of deck is Perplex.

If you're interested, I've got a Dimir Mill deck Oona, Queen of the Mill and an Esper 'steal your stuff' deck Sphinx-Demon-Wizard Tribal - Yennett that might be able to give you some more ideas. Also I think you have two copies of your commander in there?

Syphon Flesh, Call to the Grave, and Do or Die can hit multiple creatures. Wonderful deck, +1 from me!

I also worship at the throne of the Great One. A worthy pawn could be Plaguecrafter. Even the name is on theme. Other than that, any Grixis deck could use Chaos Warp for problematic Enchantments, Cyclonic Rift because we’re already here, and Vandalblast to put you further ahead. My current Commander, Thraximundar could also serve the Dragon, and keep his hunger for power satiated. Enjoyed the deck, have fun with it!

Ditch Pongify for either an X Card Draw spell or Curse of the Swine. Ditch all the mana rocks. Add in Phyrexian Altar. Also Altar of Dementia + Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler = game.

Might look at Volrath's Stronghold for a land. Ever think of using Syphon Flesh. Ever think of putting in cards like Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth ? Think I like Rings better in this deck. Also since you have blue you could run Fabricate too (to get Altar). Something like Flesh-Eater Imp could also one shot someone /w ease - wouldn't even need RoofTop Storm (Imp, Equip Boots, sac some shit, swing dead (easier if you say have Warchief out).

Just some ideas.

First edit:

Out:

Zoetic Cavern - replaced with better land option

Trepanation Blade - doesn't really belong b/c it's not a mil deck

Syphon Flesh - replaced with better wipe option/ not a token deck

Stranglehold - good card, really just inspires a lot of hate in my playgroup (searching for lands

Stoneforge Masterwork - moving away from Counters/ doesn't help kaalia

Scale Blessing - moving away from counters

Righteous Cause - good card, but not a lifegain deck(will probably find its way to my Oloro deck

Prismatic Lens - deck is overflowing with mana ramp and this one doesn't help as much as the others

Master Warcraft - fun card, can't seem to use it efficiently, might add it back in

Lightkeeper of Emeria - Good early blocker, swapped for a fatty, might add it back in

Gleam of Authority - Moving away from counters

Contagion Clasp - moving away from counters

Cathars' Crusade - moving away from counters

Bomb Squad - moving away from counters/swap for fatty

In:

Reya Dawnbringer - recursion

Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste option

Karmic Guide - recursion

Swiftfoot Boots - haste option/protect Kaalia

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - more effective aggro

Tainted Field - land upgrade

Merciless Eviction - wipe upgrade

Steel Hellkite - fatty/wipe

Harvester of Souls - card draw

Hallowed Burial - wipe upgrade

Bogardan Hellkite - a lot of options with this fatty(spot removal, aggro, clear small tokens)

Kokusho, the Evening Star - aggro upgrade

Austere Command - wipe upgrade

Rune-Scarred Demon - tutor option

Is this for 1v1 or multiplayer?

Stranglehold is a good card against them. Other than that, I've found sweepers and blockers can do the trick. It depends how much protection/evasion your Narset player uses in their deck.

Cheap sweepers would be ideal: Bontu's Last Reckoning, Toxic Deluge, Chain Reaction, etc

Edict effects would work well too, since Narset is usually their only creature. Diabolic Edict, Chainer's Edict, Fleshbag Marauder, Innocent Blood, Liliana of the Veil, Merciless Executioner, Slum Reaper, Smallpox, Syphon Flesh, Tyrant's Choice.

So Black-Red looks like a good choice. Maybe use Mogis, God of Slaughter as your commander?
