Undying Evil Discussion

Snogglesworth: I respectfully disagree. I've always preferred the art on Raise Dead .

Flooremoji: That I can agree with, however there are only 4 zombie cards in this deck, so I don't think it will have a big enough impact. On the other hand, I did just get some more Undying Evil , so there's a change I can make.

Looter il-Kor for Latch Seeker and River Sneak for Invisible Stalker . if its on budget Delver of Secrets  Flip but you will need to add more spells. all the enchantments seem redundant Ordeal of Thassa , Singing Bell Strike , Waterknot could be replaced by Curious Obsession , Hands of Binding , Hidden Strings or spells like Vapor Snag , Boomerang , etc. Hall of Triumph might be too slow and you can only have one at a time. if you add black to the mix you could have Inkfathom Witch for a bit more reach and better removal plus a few revival cards like Undying Evil and Demonic Vigor , and hand disruption. and having a 4 of Rune Snag will probably help you too, to stop the opponent killing your creatures or getting a threat. that all i got, i think, good luck with the brew.

I would say to look at pauper and copy a few things - An UB control deck is very possible, but you need the right shell. Unearth + Phyrexian Rager , Undying Evil or Abnormal Endurance + Augur of Skulls or Mulldrifter to get ahead on cards.

I like Undying Evil for this kind of deck. Does great things with Gary, Tree of Perdition, etc. Also, since you can sac at instant speed, Mesmeric Fiend permanently exiles, since you can sac it in response to the ETB trigger, making it better than Kitesail Freebooter and other newer cards that have been worded to avoid that interaction. I agree that Grave Pact is a must-have. Some more ramp and card draw wouldn't hurt. I'm partial to Jet Medallion , Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , and Thought Vessel for rocks, and Syphon Mind is my favorite mono-black draw spell.

I would cut Ritual of Soot, since it scales very poorly in EDH. Crux of Fate , Damnation (if you've got the cash), Decree of Pain , Toxic Deluge , take your pick.

As for lands, Crypt of Agadeem would be good here. Phyrexian Tower just got reprinted. It's a bit pricey, but it is VERY good, and having been $60 just a few months ago with no likely reprint in the near future, pick it up now. Temple of the False God is a bad card, full stop. It is never correct to include it. Ever. That's not just me talking, but virtually every EDH content creator out there.

I'm not sure how you feel about the budget issue with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , but it would be a very good addition, even before taking the combo with Walking Ballista or Triskelion into account. It's a solid addition to a black deck, and there are some affordable tutors that can get both pieces like Beseech the Queen , Diabolic Intent (on theme, so maybe add it regardless), Sidisi, Undead Vizier (also on theme!), and Netherborn Phalanx .

As for reanimation, Rise from the Grave is pretty inefficient, and upgrading to Animate Dead , Victimize (on theme!), Dread Return (apparently there's a lot of sac'ing in black, who knew?), Sepulchral Primordial (great with repeatable ETB effects), Rise of the Dark Realms (expensive, but a black staple in EDH), Necromancy , Thrilling Encore (great if you can sac with Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact ), Ever After (one more mana for twice the value), Whisper, Blood Liturgist , Champion of Stray Souls (so much sac'ing), Hell's Caretaker (again, so much sac'ing), Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni , Rescue from the Underworld (on-theme), Infernal Offering (sac!), Necromantic Summons (strictly better than Rise), Zombify , and Footsteps of the Goryo (...sac).

The last thing I would do is check out the EDHREC pages for Yahenni, the color black, and sacrifice to see what others are running. Good luck!

Aragon_Neotrix Playtesting it, i noticed that turn 1 Children of Korlis , turn 2 Immolating Souleater and turn 3 attack, with an Undying Evil or Supernatural Stamina in hand, u can gain tons of life and deal a supermassive damage on your opponent, and those 3 cards in opening hand plus 3 draws are very common to have. So the more you play with it, more u learn about it's mechanincs and tricks. The scenario that i created before works like paying life to buff Immolating Souleater , lets imagine 16 life, sacrificing Children of Korlis (plus 16), than paying more 16 life to buff even more the souleater, giving Korlis undying and sacrificing it again (plus 32), and buffing even more souleater (whaaat?!!). Yes, thats brutal. And we still have Martyr of Sands and all the other cards to play. I think its pretty consistent. (Take care with the stack, everything must be done in the correct order).

Btw i agree with Epicure of Blood and Final Payment , the second one might have a place in this deck for sure.

I'm in love with this deck Daarkest!!

You really should be running four Gifted Aetherborn and Indulgent Aristocrat, I'd probably go with four Captivating Vampire too and two Drana, Liberator of Malakir. To make the space cut Cliffhaven Vampire, Vampire Neonate, Call to the Feast and Forerunner of the Legion, this should help make your deck more efficient. Demonic Vigor is a poor choice compared to Supernatural Stamina or Undying Evil as your opponent can play around it. As a last thought Tragic Slip could be a good removal option for you. Hope this is of some help, good luck with your deck.

Etched Champion used to be the best option for pushing damage through, but due to the number of colourless threats in modern, that isn't really the case anymore. You might be better pumping your guys more with Chief of the Foundry or running Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I also suspect that Paradise Mantle is a better play than Springleaf Drum, though I could be wrong. Maybe run a pump spell like Built to Smash in addition to Cranial Plating or protection like Undying Evil. Hope that is of some help, good luck with your brew.
