Vizier of Many Faces Discussion

Taliesin32 on Free Stuff!

I think it lacks impact for this combo and the deck has strong mana and draw. Cast Out is the best finish to the combo so far.

Some ideas I came up with were - Kefnet the Mindful, Crocodile of the Crossing or Vizier of Many Faces

Crocodile just because of the haste after clearing the board. Vizier as you could keep something on the board you want to copy, or you could copy your own. Kefnet as it should be online and stabilizes the board quite well.

What do you think?

I would say you are off to a good start, but I see some things to think about.

I would lower your mana curve a lot. Like actually cut almost every card that costs over 4 for cheaper options. Also I would try and decide whether or not you really want to focus on milling out people or not. Its not a strategy you can go half in on, its just not gonna work. Personally I would cut the strategy from the deck. You don't need too many cards devoted to "winning", if you have some good theft and copy cards in addition to the commander.

Your commander is very mana hungry to take advantage of, and needs protection. If you focus on supporting the commander more I think you will be in better shape. Things like cheap countermagic that can be cast the same turn as the commander, and especially mana rocks that can tap for any color so you can cast the cards from your opponent's hands easier. Just more mana rocks in general, can't have too many.

Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Coalition Relic, Fellwar Stone, ...just about any 5-color tapping mana rock. Then once you have enough of them in play Paradox Engine gets crazy good, it would allow you to untap during other people's turns. Turn Aside, Memory Lapse, Remand, Delay, Hindering Light, Echoing Truth, Displacement Wave, Cyclonic Rift, Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking are good counterspells, removal, and bounce that come to mind quickly. Vizier of Many Faces has been impressive lately as a great clone.

Lots of changes, good luck! I'm interested to see what comes out!

Nice update. I would still offer some strict upgrade for some cards though.

Clone can come out for Stunt Double or even the new Vizier of Many Faces.

Mind Control can be replaced by Corrupted Conscience if you're okay with being "that guy".

Also maybe Consecrated Sphinx is a better option that Aeon Chronicler? or even Mind's Eye?

Also how hwas testing out Silent Arbiter gone? Does it often get removed or does it stick to the field?

Winterblast on Sen Triplets (building it together)

Alright, I would keep Baleful Strix, Godhead of Awe, Grand Abolisher, Phantasmal Image, Sharuum the Hegemon, Sun Titan, Vizier of Many Faces and cut the rest. Padeem, Consul of Innovation would be good, better than the archangel. More clones would be an idea, so you can not only steal the spells but then also make more copies of the creatures...or you can at least copy something that you didn't manage or want to counter.

Looking at the mana base...please do not play the ravnica bounce lands, they are really really bad. Worst case would be that you play a tapped land, next turn a bonce land and then someone destroys that land and you lost 3 full turns for nothing. Actually, don't play any lands that come into play tapped, unless they have some really important ability. you do your colour fixing with the artifacts so rather play basic lands before you use the ones that come into play tapped! I would say if you have a problem with getting at least several fetchlands and shockduals you should make the deck mostly blue and use only little of the other colours so you can put in enough islands. having blue for the counterspells in the early game is the most important aspect

Carrion Feeder better sac outlet than gnawing zombies

Apprentice Necromancer hasty zombies are cool, this seems like an all star under mimic vat

Plaguebearer-anti token tech

Relentless Dead good all around card

Shepherd of Rot good with whip of erebos

Tymaret, the Murder King sac outlet with minor upsides. the more zombies in the deck the better

Withered Wretch graveyard hate=super good. if you run a lot of graveyard hate maybe look at Living Death as well

Anathemancer silly ramp decks with their fancy dual lands

Cemetery Reaper graveyard hate and lord

Death Baron no one will block thrax

Diregraf Colossus seems good at swarming, really good with gravecaller and phyrexian altar

Lich Lord of Unx slow token production, kinda cool win con

Lord of the Accursed another lord

Nantuko Husk free sac outlet. maybe better than ashnod's altar?

Plague Belcher board wipe i dare you

Unbreathing Horde big dumb guy, possibly hard to kill though

Agent of Erebos graveyard hate that could be repeatable

Corpse Augur card draw, you might be lacking on this type of effect right now

Drunau Corpse Trawler two zombies in one card

Forgotten Creation get that hand cycling for living death and patriarch's bidding

Risen Executioner another lord with possible upside

Undead Alchemist go wide in clever way

Undead Warchief super good card

Vengeful Dead another anti wrath tech

Custodi Lich card draw and board control

Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain in massive swings is good in my book

Havengul Lich awesome card, would play

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus gotta get that blue/red working in your deck. this could be a Rhystic Study possibly as well

Lightning Reaver no one expects the hasty zombie, and gets around pillow forts. might make people target it/you

Noxious Ghoul super great card! it's been an all-star in every zombie deck i've run

Phyrexian Delver reanimation is good i hear

Possessed Skaab The zombie eternal witness?

Sidisi, Undead Vizier get your rooftop storm on curve

Woebearer slowish reanimation

Deathbringer Thoctar more creature control

Gempalm Polluter killing folks at instant speed, could be good to Phyrexian Reclamation

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed the best lord

Noosegraf Mob go wide

Twisted Abomination good early and late

Dark Salvation flexible kill card. make sure you understand the card before goofing it up

Cemetery Recruitment cheap draw 2

Zombie Infestation swarm card, might want to run a Bident of Thassa to fuel it

Curse of Shallow Graves kinda risky token maker

Empty the Pits instant speed army please?

Gisa and Geralf the type of non zombie i like in this deck

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet graveyard hate and tokens, winner winner chicken dinner

Vizier of Many Faces the embalm is a zombie, and you can get value out of milling it

Call to the Grave a payoff card to running zombies

Ghoulcaller Gisa swarm and sac outlet

Liliana, Death's Majesty if you want a planeswalker

Stitcher Geralf remember you can exile the creatures your opponents mill

Syphon Flesh expensive creature kill

Ever After could be good

Zombie Apocalypse this seems great

Necromantic Selection really expensive wrath, might want a Decree of Pain for the mana cost

Army of the Damned yeah zombies

Possible cuts

gnawing zombie- i think carrion feeder is better

mind slash- really slow, like really

phyrexian crusader- if this is your only infect threat i'm not sure i like it

defiler of souls- call to the grave is better in my book

cruel ultimatum mana curve reasons

curse of the cabal see above

trophy mage non zombie

phyrexian obliterator non zombie

you could think about cutting mulldrifter and skriekmaw as well because they aren't zombies

well that's a lot to think about, i'm excited to see what you put together!!!

Clone, Progenitor Mimic, Followed Footsteps, Vesuvan Shapeshifter, Clever Impersonator, Vizier of Many Faces, and all the other clone effects: WE WILL HAVE ALL THE STORM CROWS.

Vesuva: Because why play basic islands when you can pay $13 for a card that copies one?

Frodo1337 on An Amalgamation of the Embalmed

I really like your deck! I think i will build it and i hope, that there will be awesome new embalm cards in the next set.

One question though. Did you try Vizier of Many Faces and Angel of Sanctions ?
