Vengeful Dead Discussion

Scandar on Gisa and geralf zombies NO COMBO

3 days ago

Hi MegaMatt13 thanks for all suggestions. I saw your deck and i like it, but my version is a little different than yours, because i'm not concentrate in massive survival, i want to prefer take more value of my cards casting with Gisa and Geralf when zombies have already died or they were descarted.

I tried Fact or Fiction, but I prefer Frantic Search because it's more tempo in my game.sometimes I had Fact or Fiction in my hand and i prefered play another zombie or cast something from my graveyard.

I have got buy Monastery Siege and test it.

Vengeful Dead I tested him but i didn't like because I considerer him poor in stats.

And finally i didn't prefer blue zombies because i can take value with Balthor the Defiled , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Crypt of Agadeem.

Sorry about my english, currently i'm learning.

I hope you can understand me.

Nice deck :)

I'd suggest more cards similar to Frantic Search that will filter through your deck and dump zombies into your graveyard.

Fact or Fiction, Monastery Siege, Forbidden Alchemy, Fortune's Favor, and Epiphany at the Drownyard all work great in my version. Perpetual Timepiece is also great and filling the graveyard.

Other great zombies: Vengeful Dead, Armored Skaab, Laboratory Brute, Geralf's Mindcrusher

Hope this helps!

PhotogenicParasympathetic: Thank you for the comment! :) I'll consider Undead Alchemist, though Vengeful Dead seems a bit win-more (it only REALLY does work in a more midrange and less all-out-combo build than this one). Noxious Ghoul was in this deck originally, but had to come out when it was killing all of my own combo pieces :( I wish I owned a Survival of the Fittest I really should get my hands on a gold-bordered copy. For now, though, Fauna Shaman does the trick well enough.

onemorevictim: Deadbridge Chant used to be in here, but got cut for two reasons. First, I found it too inconsistent - I like my reanimation to be reliable. Second, to be honest, choosing a random card in my GY got pretty tedious when my GY was 50+ cards, haha. Also, it's not a creature, which is generally a strike against cards in this deck.

Patolea: I'm so glad you like the deck! It's one of my favorites, too :) And you're 100% right about Avatar of Woe sucking here; I really do need to find something better for that slot. Perhaps you're right about Sheoldred, thanks!

kilgore: It's not a proper infinite combo until Dread is the last card in my library. But statistically speaking, as long as I have 3+ creatures before I start the loop, it almost always mills my entire deck. Mathematically, it's because milling four cards per zombie in two increments gives me a (4x.37-4x.37x.37)=93% chance of hitting at least one zombie and thus breaking even :)

So first of all, I love this deck and everything about it.

Second, a handful of suggestions:

Behold the Beyond is my favorite tutor for graveyard combos. The drawback just... isn't a drawback. It costs a lot of mana, but a successful resolution can usually mean the game.

Next, Undead Alchemist makes your combo with Selhoff Occultist and Altar of Dementia faster than just relying on Sidisi. That said, it IS a win-more/win-faster, but if you ever find yourself without access to Sidisi, it could be an alternative.

Vengeful Dead seems good for punishing anyone who dares stand in your way. Noxious Ghoul, on the other hand, prefers to make the punishment happen BEFORE the crime.

Last, the not-budget-at-all suggestion, Survival of the Fittest. Or, if you prefer, it's significantly cheaper cousin, Evolutionary Leap. Either should help you dig for the pieces you need.

Gisa and Geralf seem like a good inclusion for the decklist. The enters-the-battlefield mill ability isn't that impressive, but being able to cast Zombies from your graveyard is really valuable.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a Zombie, provides a one-time sacrifice outlet, and tutors for whatever you need. She's also a pretty beefy fighter.

Cryptbreaker is a cheap Zombie generator that also provides decent card advantage once the horde is big enough.

Fleshbag Marauder kills hexproof and indestructible creatures, and even pro black, and it hits all players, so it's definitely some valuable removal.

Vengeful Dead is incredible in EDH when you're frequently facing down multiple opponents at once. Combine with a sacrifice outlet like Grimgrin and you can ping opponents to death if you have enough Zombies.

One thing to be cautious of with using the infinite sac/damage/draw combo that Broviticus mentioned is that Secrets of the Dead is not a "May" ability so you have to ensure you don't mill yourself out! Thus, I would use Vengeful Dead if you have Secrets of the Dead out to be safe! The combo is sweet though!

I love me some good ol' zombie tribal! Deck looks like a lot of fun! I run a similar style deck with Gisa and Geralf at the helm. I'm not sure what your budget is but I do have a few suggestions (budget-pending):

I would consider adding in the following zombies:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
Death Baron
Zombie Master + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth = unblockable zombies!
Prized Amalgam
Shepherd of Rot
Balthor the Defiled
Vengeful Dead (really hurts if you go infinte sac with Gravecrawler)

I feel these zombies can help replace some of the weaker members of your horde like the following:

Abattoir Ghoul
Gavony Unhallowed
Returned Phalanx
Stitcher Geralf

Along similar lines, I see that you have some reanimation spells in your deck however, if your budget allows, I would make the upgrade to some of the following:

Dread Return
Living Death
Rise of the Dark Realms
Beacon of Unrest

Best of luck!

Cards like Gempalm Polluter and Lich Lord of Unx can be great win-cons in a zombie deck. Also, Vengeful Dead is very useful against board wipes. In fact, you can use him with your own board wipe to deal a lot of damage. I use them in my own Sidisi deck and they are brutal.
