Tidehollow Sculler Discussion

Sure have! It's in the sideboard right now because I like the deathtouch on Fathom Feeder better than the 2/2 body, and fathom feeder can exile multiple cards (even if they are just from the library) whereas Tidehollow Sculler needs a displacer. In the end it just comes down to preference. I don't think you can really go wrong playing sculler type cards in this kind of deck. Thanks for the input!

Greetings. great combo. i would add something like toughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek or Tidehollow Sculler to discard removal and avoid your creatures from being destroyed.i play a zombie deck. this is my list: Crowd of BodiesMondo1212 maybe you are interested in this deck.

Pheardemons those are awesome suggestions. I sort of through the deck together really quick to see what I could come up with. If I ever take this deck seriously enough to sleeve it up I will certainly play Tidehollow Sculler Oblivion Ring and Viscera Seer. Wasteland Strangler is a nice alternative as well.

I'm not sure how far these are out of your budget, but look into Tidehollow Sculler to replace Brain Maggot and some sort of sacrifice outlet like Viscera Seer. Reason being is that when your creature enters play (Faceless Butcher, Fiend Hunter, Tidehollow Sculler) their ETB trigger goes onto the stack, then you sacrifice them to something like Viscera Seer so that their second ability goes onto the stack ABOVE the first one. Their second trigger resolves and they return nothing because nothing was exiled, then the sacrifice trigger of Viscera Seer resolves and you scry 1, then the ETB trigger resolves to exile a creature card or a card from their hand permanently.

If you can find something that sacrifices enchantments (at instant speed) that you're willing to play such as Abzan Advantage or Auratog then you can do the same thing with Oblivion Ring which could replace Banishing Light.

Last suggestion, look into Wasteland Strangler. If you don't like the other cards and interactions I've mentioned, you can put the card that you exiled into your opponent's graveyard with some of the eldrazi from BFZ and Oath of Gatewatch so that even if your card leaves play, you're opponent won't get their card back.

Hopefully all of that made sense for you.

I think theres too many lords... in the other hand, you should protect some interactions between your zombies and, for that, i would add to Tidehollow Sculler toughtseize in the main.

you should make room to include Viscera Seer.to have on the battlefield Viscera Seer and Gravecrawler allows you to put in play a lot of tokens. it helps you by making scry. this combo allows you to triggers abilities when it goes to the graveyard and/or when you play it (Wayward Servant, Diregraf Colossus.turn 4 you play Diregraf Colossus with Aether Vial and with the untapped lands you can trigger colossus ability 3 or 4 times. in the other hand, having Viscera Seer on the battlefield when you play Tidehollow Sculler you can sacrifice the tidehollow in response to its first ability. this way it triggers the second ability (with no card to return to the oponents hand, then resolves the scry and, at last, look at oponents hand and exile a card that wont come back. the tidehollow in the graveyard can come back later with Relentless Dead.With Viscera Seer you can sacrifice Relentless Dead any time you wish to use its abilities. i play a similar deck:Crowd of Bodies

hope this helps!

Pretty sure Sculler is just strictly better than Freebooter for two reasons.

Eldrazi Displacer can flicker it with the etb on the stack and you can permanently exile something and then exile another thing under it/permanently exile stuff if they kill it in response etc.

Second, if you process something under Tidehollow Sculler it stays in the graveyard whereas if Kitesail Freebooter dies they get the card back whether it got processed or not.

That's why most decks play Sculler if they can despite the mana problems.
