Undead Alchemist

Creature — Zombie

If a Zombie you control would deal combat damage to a player, instead that player puts that many cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard.

Whenever a creature card is put into an opponent's graveyard from his or her library, exile that card and put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.

MindAblaze on Decision Paralysis

Well Whispering Madness and Psychic Corrosion seemed fun, and were intended to play together. I even considered Undead Alchemist and Wildfire Eternal for that. Casting zombies and getting mill spells like Traumatize and Mind Funeral for free seemed like a thing to do if I can get the Eternal through.

The other goal was originally to mash Flayer, Prized Amalgam, Sickening Dreams, Nahiri's Wrath and Mogg Maniac into the same shell. I don’t exactly want to only build Grixis decks, despite my love affair with the undead lol. This deck could have Gravecrawlers and Bloodghasts, and would probably benefit from a way to reanimate the Flayers.

I don't normally comment but I see someone else also loves the idea of edh mill :)

IMO in commander spells that are targeted like Fraying Sanity or Curse of the Bloody Tome are worse than global effects like Memory Erosion. It doesn't matter if it's 1v1 commander, but anything in a group setting makes them worse. Stuff like Hedron Crab and Curse of the Bloody Tome can too slow for 100 card decks. You're not guaranteed to play them early and by the time you mill 10 or 20 cards they'll have their commander and some other nonsense to just end the game. Some people play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth so milling them out is impossible without Leyline of the Void

Even if you're all into mill, some board wipes like Black Sun's Zenith or Killing Wave can really save you.

Some cards which might help are Ashen Powder Whispering Madness Soul Manipulation Dissipation Field Quest for Ancient Secrets Avatar of Woe Body Double Consuming Aberration Guiltfeeder Nighthowler Sepulchral Primordial Wrexial, the Risen Deep Entreat the Dead Wight of Precinct Six

if you're into zombies you can use Arcane Adaptation + Undead Alchemist + Waste Not

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.

cdkime on The Wacky Deck Thread

My kitchen table is usually inhabited by somewhat janky, fun decks based around cards with unique abilities. Some notable ones include a Coalition Victory deck, a Spawnsire of Ulamog deck, a squirrel tribal (with infinite squirrels) deck, and an Undead Alchemist mill deck.

None of these decks are competitive in a traditional sense, but they tend to be pretty balanced against one another.

I also moved your thread over to the General Forum, which is for General MTG discussion not covered by other threads. Deck Help, where it was previously posted, is for asking advice on specific decks.

hello really like your deck

Cloudstone Curio with Rooftop Storm is the combo you are probably looking for boucing Gray Merchant of Asphodel to drain everyone or bouncing Grave Defiler to cast all zombie in your deck but you could stick with only Rooftop Storm + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Gravecrawler + Diregraf Captain

for the cut it really depend on how you play the deck the problem is that you are trying to do everything you have control/agro/combo going on you should pick combo/agro or control/combo

for the card that in my opinion arent worth to play are : Consuming Aberration , Fatestitcher, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Liliana's Reaver, Noosegraf Mob, Stitcher Geralf, Undead Alchemist, liliana, death's majesty, Liliana Vess , Cancel, Counterspell, Hero's Downfall, Murder, Negate, Silumgar's Command, Quietus Spike, Sword of Vengeance, Freed from the Real, Training Grounds, Army of the Damned, Dark Salvation, Rise from the Tides, Ruinous Path also cut some of the worst land like Dimir Guildgate and run some more basic

for the card that you should be adding to the list: Grave Defiler, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Phyrexian Altar, Skullclamp, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Bitter Ordeal could be good if your local meta is a lot of food chain/flash hulk or combo deck , Diabolic Intent and all the other tutor if you have the money Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

ps: my recommendation fit for a agro/combo deck

DrkNinja I understand your entire deck isn't mill-based. I just don't think I want to commit to a card that converts all zombie combat damage into mill. I can see where Altar of the Brood would be useful but without the Undead Alchemist it wouldn't be nearly as effective and as I said before I feel like using the life drain effects of cards like Blood Artist and Diregraf Captain is much more effective than milling 1 card per rotation of combo. If Undead Alchemist wouldn't stop my combat damage maybe I would have a different opinion. As for coming off rude its fine. I don't take offense easily and I am only on this site to further better my deck building and combo skills. In other words, "No worries bro!"

Things to cut from your Maybeboard:

  • Vengeful Pharaoh
  • Vela the Night-Clad
  • Graf Harvest
  • Training Grounds
  • Liliana, the Last Hope
  • Orb of Dreams
  • Heartstone

All of these either hurt you as much as your opponent, help your opponent as much as you, or aren't streamlined enough I don't believe.

Also its a real shame you aren't doing the whole mill thing because I just found out how absolutely dumb, Altar of the Brood + Undead Alchemist is... Like honestly in my 6 man pod I milled the whole table, it was dumb.

Lanzo493 on God's Plan... To Mill

Paradox Engine, Eater of the Dead (you need Brainspoil to tutor him for sure), Phyrexian Devourer (his ability will only go on the stack once so once his power hits 7 go crazy and make him big for one last gigantic mill), and Intruder Alarm can all close out games. Mesmeric Orb is pricy but can easily know I out a quarter of everyone’s deck when played turn 2. Thousand-Year Elixir May also be worth a shot.

Undead Alchemist with Altar of the Brood is almost infinite.

But I love not expensive things. Take a look at Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real, Sword of the Paruns, Bonehoard, Mortivore, and Slagwurm Armor. Stitcher Geralf is also fun.

You also may consider milling yourself every once in a while to use Ever After, Necropolis, Stitch Together, and Treasure Cruise.

If you thought even some of my ideas were worthwhile then you may want to consider looking st my deck for more card suggestions. !!!DANGER: YOU ARE ENTERING A MILLZONE!!!
