smilkows on Zombies Beat You Black And Blue

18 hours ago

Nice deck! I think it looks like a fun one to play. I will have to think about the questions above, but for types of suggestions- I think another board sweeper of some kind could be useful. I mention this as in my current grixis list I ran into trouble against players with protection from black/blue and I needed an additional way to deal with them that got around targeting. One card that while not a Zombie, does some work is Duplicant.

Another card that I think would be fun for your list is Gray Merchant of Asphodel. That card could do some awesome things in your list.

You already have a Volrath's Stronghold, which is awesome. I like pairing that with Phyrexian Tower. You can use the 2 mana you get from sacrificing a creature to the tower to put the creature card back on top of your library. It has been a helpful way to save some of my creatures from targeted removal and board wipes if I leave at least the stronghold and the tower up. If you do that with gray merchant it can be a fun little combo. Thank you for sharing!

WhichKing on UR- DARGONZ

Thus far my strategy is to get a critical threshold of dragons in the deck (27 right now) so that I can keep drawing and casting dragons instead of needing to reanimate them. I have considered Unburial Ritesbefore, but just don't know what to cut for it right now (maybe Serum Visions?). My current recursion suite either gives me repeated uses (Palace Siege and Volrath's Stronghold) or gives blowouts (Patriarch's Bidding with Dragonlord Kolaghan or Scourge of Valkas in the GY). Bladewing the Risen was included mainly for nostalgia, but is actually quite useful in Pod chains. Pod away a 6-drop to get Bladewing the Risen, which reanimates a dragon. Next turn you can pod away Bladewing to get Utvara Hellkite!

Demonic Tutor and Seasons Past combo to give me a recursion engine late game (Tutor for Seasons Past, which recurs the tutor). Bring to Lightreally ties up the whole package!

Sneak Attack +Volrath's Stronghold = never need another dragon!

Also, I really like the idea of using Scion of the Ur-Dragon as the commander and abusing Wheel of Sun and Moon

Gadianten on Wasitora: Mother of Cat Dragons

You seem to have the offensive and control aspects of your deck down but it seems to be lacking defensive options; some useful options you might consider would be Yavimaya Hollow, Asceticism and although not entirely defensive Volrath's Stronghold should prevent you from getting priced out on your commander.

I think that TheWallinator74 has the right idea on the infinite combat enablers with Hellkite Charger and Aggravated Assault powered by Savage Ventmaw, Bear Umbra, Nature's Will and Sword of Feast and Famine. If possible I would try and add all of them as they assure some redundancy in enabling the combat damage combo and the mana generators on their own are massively useful.

Another angle to consider for your deck is reanimation, as your commander and deck in general seems well geared to making things dead, so why not capitalize on that with a few cards like Reanimate, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni or Sepulchral Primordial?

mir13 on Edgar's Dega Vampires

Phyrexian Tower and Volrath's Stronghold are good cards to have. You might want to consider Anointed Procession and Purphoros, God of the Forge as well. Having all your vampires dome everyone for 6 is just fantastic. Add in Bontu's Monument and you have a nice little engine going. X-spell or two would be good if you add Cabal Coffers in there as well as Nirkana Revenant or Crypt Ghast.

Is your meta tribal central? If not Patriarch's Bidding will probably be good as well! Best of luck

Profet93 on Reserved List?

Is it worth it to buy cards that I will actually use from the reserved list? From what I understand, the cards won't be reprinted so they should retain their value. These are not just cards to keep and hope they increase in price, but also cards that I will be using in EDH decks as well.

The specific cards in question I am looking to purchase are...

Mishra's Workshop

Chains of Mephistopheles

Forcefield

All Hallow's Eve

Land Equilibrium

Gauntlet of Might

Imperial Recruiter

Forcefield

Copy Artifact

Serra's Sanctum

Volrath's Stronghold
