Whip of Erebos Discussion

tehgamer on As Above, So Below (Kaalia Zenith Seeker)

I haven't played with this card yet, but my impression is that you need more Creatures to get value from Kaalia. I would think that 30 is borderline too low. Also I think having an equal balance of Angels/Demons/Dragons is also critical. So I think you need to cut some Angels and Add some more Dragons and Demons.

If 1/3 of the deck are Creatures and I draw 6 then that means I will (on average) hit 2 Creature cards. Which is good! So now I have to balance creature types to ensure that those 2 cards are different in order to draw more than 1.

You don't have nearly enough ramp either. Add the 3 Signets and maybe some other things to get you to where you need to go. In addition to helping you hit the Big threats faster its also going to shore up your issue of needing smaller Demons/Dragons.

On a side note, I think that the graveyard strategy is worth dropping from the deck as it doesn't seem like you really have a means to get creatures in the yard (outside of just dying). Maybe keep Whip of Erebos ?

Cards i would cut... Command the Dreadhorde - just seems like a bad idea. Remember you have to pay life! Grand Abolisher - Is fine, but not critical to what you are trying to do. True Conviction - Again this card is fine, but I am not sure that you need it.

Things I would add... More ways to Blink Kaalia and protect the Bombs you are dropping.

Oh right, i didn't see, that Commune with the Gods could hit Whip of Erebos . Maybe even Find / Finality could be nice.

I like to Commune with the Gods and hit Whip of Erebos with it. The whip is kind of a key card in the deck so I don't want it in the graveyard. Maybe some recursion Eternal Witness , Golgari Findbroker or even Pharika's Mender will work.

Just in case you weren't aware, you're not allowed to run Behind the Scenes according to official EDH rules since it has white in its colour identity.

Among recent-ish cards that your local store is reasonably likely to have, I would recommend Neheb, the Eternal for both theme and great ramp. Having playtested against the deck it also feels like it could use more card draw, and I would recommend Erebos, God of the Dead or Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or any other Greed -variant they might have in.

Speaking of, Whip of Erebos could help you gain back that life you paid and works great with your Sanguine Bond and Epicure of Blood .

Hazoret's Monument can ramp early and get rid of excess lands for more gas later. Pseudo-draw from Outpost Siege or Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip would probably also do very well.

Angrath's Marauders are a one-sided damage doubler with a flavour connection to Angrath.

Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic and Obelisk of Urd are tribal staples and can help your minotaurs get big enough to attack through small or medium creatures. Stoneforge Masterwork is also solid. Door of Destinies and Shared Animosity are the big boys of tribal buffs, but since they're a bit older they can be harder to find, and the latter is quite expensive as well.

While a bit more pricey, Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (and the very expensive Gauntlet of Might ) are powerful in both boosting your mana and your creatures. Crypt Ghast only does one of the two, but costs a bit less and is slightly easier to find. (Note that the symbol is in reminder text and does not give the card a white colour identity).

I hope I've given you some ideas!

You want cards with discard triggers / abilities and cards that work from the graveyard.

Things like that. Consider your graveyard as an extension of your hand. Play it like Dredge.

At least you should try, I thougt of pestilence creatures cos you're running Whip of Erebos and probably you will lack life.

Hi there, thanks for taking an interest in my decks. About zombies: It's still hard to have a Tier 1 deck, but you can make something really competitive nonetheless. The thing is, as you know, dropping low-cost and efficient creatures is mandatory for Modern. I'll give you some zombie cards to consider, 3 CMC max:

These are my favorite zombie creatures. There are a few more around but for Modern I think the ones I mentioned are the ones that really shine. But please do search and see if you find any other you prefer

Then you need to worry about interaction. Bet on discard cards like Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek and even Duress , as they are good control and your only way of getting rid of artifacts and enchantments. Creature killers are a must as well: Fatal Push , Spark Harvest , Go for the Throat , Tragic Slip , Dismember or Defile (when you have many basic lands only). The last three kill indestructible creatures

It's a good idea to have some other spells. Reanimation like Ghoulcaller's Chant and Unearth sits well with what we're trying to do. One or two copies of Sign in Blood might be something to consider as well. Also you can try enchantments that benefit on death like Grave Pact or Open the Graves . Endless Ranks of the Dead and Whip of Erebos are amazing too. If you have planeswalkers, do not be tempted by their abilities while forgetting the mana cost and the turns you need to activate ultimates. Liliana, Dreadhorde General is nice but too expensive and slow. Try Liliana, the Last Hope or Liliana, Untouched By Death instead if you insist on planeswalking. If you're lucky enough to have Liliana of the Veil , then use it

Lastly, Aether Vial does wonders for saving your mana casting creatures, and Surgical Extraction punishes non-basic lands and combos the enemy might throw at you

Hope I helped somehow. If you have questions please ask! Also, if you like Rakdos I invite you to check my deck Hell Awaits. Have fun and good games
