The Scarab God

Legendary Creature — God

At the beginning of your upkeep, each opponent loses X life and you scry X, where X is the number of Zombies you control.

: Exile target creature card from a graveyard. Create a token that's a copy of it, except it's a 4/4 black Zombie.

When The Scarab God is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, return it to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.

How about adding The Scarab God to your deck? Since your running mill, this card would greatly increase the versatility of your deck. Also, if you can afford it, Mesmeric Orb is insane for milling decks. Be warned though... you may become a target in multiplayer for playing it. Most people find it annoying but since my commander is Scarab God, naturally I just steal whatever they mill. Lol

Whenever ~ enters the battlefield, you may exile at least two artifacts from your graveyard. Return one other artifact with CMC lower or equal to the CMC of cards exiled this way from your graveyard to your hand.


I don't know why but I want Azorius to care about CMC much more than it should in the next set.

Speaking of "recent" sets, why not design more "guild" Gods. Only Grixis was covered in Hour of Devastation. The Scarab God The Scorpion God The Locust God What about a Gruul one? It's my favourite guild. I'm a simple man, I see good creatures, I like.

Gruul god of Egypt!

I assume you've just started? (there is only one card in the deck, plus your Commander)

I play a U/B Zombie EDH that started out with Grimgrin as the commander. I use The Scarab God now, but the deck is mostly the same. Zombie tribal with lots of fetchable combos.

Here's the link to my deck, if you're wanting some ideas for your deck.

You would need something to flicker avacyn without giving it back to the opponent or need to use something like Sundial of the Infinite or Teferi's Veil. Though it would be much easier to just use something like The Scarab God.

Also kinda tempted to do something real dumb and run The Scarab God, as he seems like he’d be one of the few creatures to survive continual board wipes

For the rotation, do you think more Cast Down could help over Fatal Push, and though Secret Salvage and Bontu's Monument are out of the picture, another Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, Thought Erasure, and more Rat Colonys could fill out the mainboard, Watery Graves also help out the landbase.

Supernatural Stamina, Lost Legacy, and The Scarab God are out of the sideboard, but Unmoored Ego and Doom Whisperer fill two of those roles well, and you can probably find another replacement for Supernatural Stamina.

At that point, this deck is worse as far as combo, but better for tempo!

cyclinggamer on Muldrotha, permanent control

My favorite game so far was against a bru pirate deck and another deck that reporte relied on mana rocks. I got burnished heart out a couple times before mana rock guy exiled it by a bajuka bog.

Too soon! Out came Pernicious Deed. Then Daring Apprentice + Swiftfoot Boots. Bring it.

Pirate guy lost his field of pirates and was basically crippled. I ended with cycling Decree of Silence, then carin casting it from my graveyard.

Then Night Soil removed almost all creatures (and kept me alive with a wall of small creatures, leaving my poor The Scarab God to only be able to steal a couple graveyard creatures.

Fun times. Not playing Mudrotha again against the mana rock guy because he'll play a muldrotha killer deck.
