Flagellum on Trying to decide on next ...

1 month ago

Hi y'all! So I've decided to retire/melt my Breya deck which is chuck full of infinite combos and most artifact goodstuff like Arcum Dagsson , Master Transmuter , Ethersworn Canonist ECT. Despite the land base being fine (few basics, only shard etb tapped lands) color fixing can still be an issue in a 4 color deck. I run exclusively combo decks for the most part so a slight change from that would be nice but not required. I also wouldn't mind sticking with an artifact theme as I already likely own the main pieces. Still like to keep it on the more budget friendlier side.

The ideas I had:

Artifact Themed

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : still on theme, still combo. But only dual colored instead of 4. There's the cheeri0s glass cannon version but I havent found a more value centric deck that works better.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius : drops a color and still on theme. This one is more mana intensive than Breya was most likely but the neat little interactions seem amusing like with Caltrops or turning a mana rock into a deathtrap.

Arcum Dagsson : mono colored but way too much hate will be drawn. Missing some non budget pieces that would make him shine (and less of a budget is available as not much would be melted). Same applies to Urza.

Spellslinger Themed

Feather, the Redeemed : seems amusing but wouldnt be geared towards voltron as much due in part of my previous experience with Karlov and Rafiq. But I do miss my Zada deck which this is reminiscent of that I dismantled for Purphoros. It would also be my only spellslinger oriented deck. Own most the cards too as a plus.

Aggro/Combo

Varina, Lich Queen : esper zombies. Seems amusing and is a bit different. I do like all the Vengeful Dead type effects recently added that punish those who would wipe out the horde.

Added Land Tax , Rhystic Study and Phyrexian Altar .

Phyrexian Altar is going to make more of my endless combos easier to get onto the board. Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Zulaport Cutthroat or Wayward Servant , Vengeful Dead all have the same effect of dealing with all your enemies at once if not interrupted.

Also a fun combo is Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Grave Pact .

Love your deck I have had so many iterations on the mill reanimator zombie deck and am quite surprised this is your first. I just posted my The Greatest Zombie Apocalypse of Them All and they are definitely on the right idea for the essence of what zombie is all about. I go deep into the Vengeful Dead strategy so not as much mill but we are brothers in brains.

The interesting part is you aren't running Phenax, God of Deception where as I'm running that as my only mill condition. If you look at the numbers though, it is very effective to go ahead with a typical strategy of just generating bazonkers zombies and then using the phenax ability to apply pressure in the case of a stalemate... Phenax is great too if you are running Consuming Aberration and in no case would not be running it

There's a couple of old zombie cards that go really well with Gisa. There's Zombie Master , Vengeful Dead , Gempalm Polluter , and the nastiest one of them all, Gravespawn Sovereign . That card wins games and can reanimate fatties to sacrifice and resacrifice.

Hey, before you get Lili (I presume Liliana of the Veil) which is an expensive card consider first improving the manabase? There's several budget lands to consider adding in place of the really bad dual lands. For a little less than the price of Lili you could add all the cards below and Rift/Labman: upgrade the manabase, add some good Zombies and nice support cards. That's much better for your overall deck than adding one card.

Lands to consider adding:

Zombies to consider adding:

Other cards to consider:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Dimir Guildgate
  • Desert of the Glorified
  • Desert of the Mindful
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Meandering River
  • Submerged Boneyard
  • Vivid Marsh
  • Dismal Backwater
  • Orzhov Basilica
  • Venser, the Sojourner
  • Sanguine Bond
  • Open the Graves
  • Levitation
  • Graf Harvest
  • Army of the Damned
  • Dark Salvation
  • Terminus
  • Time to Reflect
  • Anointer Priest
  • Aven Wind Guide
  • Geralf's Masterpiece
  • Gravedigger

Good luck with your deck.

Okay some suggestions, you said you had problems with removal. Cards off the top of my head although maybe a little pricey but luckily there was reprints.

For removal, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Fleshbag Marauder, Vindictive Lich

One card I also really love in dimir is Havengul Lich, as long you have the mana you can recast your cards in the grave, not only yours but opponents as well.

One card that is also an outlet is Josu Vess, Lich Knight, better than Army of the Damned imo. Graveborn Muse is also another steady card draw. Crypt Ghast doesn't go with theme but really helps you get that mana in a pinch. Vengeful Dead is a great card if you like your zombies dying and keep coming back and dying again xD. Shepherd of Rot is a fun card to play with as well, which can synergize with a Rooftop Storm and deal an ungodly amount of damage. Oversold Cemetery can also help since you will most likely have plenty of stuff in your grave.

Hopefully these suggestions help buddy!

Well at this point most of the good ideas might be taken but from a more casual perspective here are some possible inclusions: Lord of the Accursed, Vengeful Dead, Binding Mummy, Forgotten Creation, Corpse Harvester, Noxious Ghoul. I especially like Noxious Ghoul with Endless Ranks of the Dead or Liliana, the Last Hope's emblem.

As for potential cuts I think your weakest cards are Tidehollow Sculler, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, and Reconnaissance. Each certainly has solid uses but without having played the deck or gone against it these seem to be the smallest effects. I hesitate to mention Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist for cuts because they win me games often but zombies have at least 3 similar effects in the tribe. Those effects being on a zombie vs not one a zombie is something to consider.

The list already looks awesome... Great job putting this together!

FiveEightFiveBC That's fair enough. I mostly use Patriarch's Bidding as a finishing move if I stacked my entire graveyard with zombies. Even more with cards like; Vengeful Dead, Wayward Servant or Plague Belcher. One of the more fun combo's would be Endless Ranks of the Dead + Tombstone Stairwell. Tokens created with the Stairwell work well with the cards managed above to ping your opponents to dead or they can function as an excellent sac outlet for cards like Nantuko Husk and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born etc
