Thanks for the awesome suggestions! I can't believe I didn't think of the Whip of Erebos lol! That's a no brainer.

this device is killing the decklist. Blame it on me, it's no reference to your decklist :p

A first glace at the deck gave me some ideas already, which I will put down without keeping an eye on the budget:

Have fun and welcome in this format :)


Opifex on Liliana, Defiant Necromancer and Diabolic ...

Does Liliana, Defiant Necromancer  Flip's emblem make a creature that was returned with Diabolic Servitude return at the end of the turn? I know it wouldn't with Whip of Erebos because it replaces the death with exile.

looks like a solid deck! I have a couple ideas that i hope will improve your deck!

Nephalia Academy, Radiant Fountain and Waterveil Cavern could be upgraded, maybe Terramorphic Expanse, Nephalia Drownyard, Drownyard Temple, Bojuka Bog

Chronic Flooding, Corpse Churn, Strategic Planning, Forbidden Alchemy, Mesmeric Orb could be a clever way of adding cards to the graveyard

Sol Ring is a stable in commander, more mana rocks? Dimir Signet, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus

Raise Dead dosen't seem strong enough. maybe Beacon of Unrest?

Exhume, Gnawing Zombie, Grave Peril, Gravepurge, Moan of the Unhallowed could be possible cuts

Secrets of the Dead is awesome! maybe swap for or add River Kelpie as well!

Fleshbag Marauder is super good!

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is great!

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon seems out of place

Rise from the Tides seems out of place as well

Call to the Grave is very good

Death Baron, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Noxious Ghoul are some zombies that i think could improve your deck!

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet isn't a zombie but makes them and provides a good effect for commander!

Maybe add a some sources of life gain as well, Whip of Erebos is a good one

Havengul Lich is amazing with Rooftop Storm!

Metallic Mimic pairs well with Adaptive Automaton

Ascendant Evincar seems too expensive but not terriblesame with Dread Slaver

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.

Lightning Greaves>Swiftfoot Bootsif you can afford em.Graf Harvest>Cover of Darkness

Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.

Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.

Forced Marchseems like there are better board wipe options, especially since this pretty much guaranties killing all Z's. Toxic DelugeDamnationLife's FinalePlague Wind

Jet Medallion> Mind Stoneor another rando rock

remove Smother for kill with life gain like Consuming Vapors.

You have a lot of life loss but I am not seeing life gain, consider cards like Whip of ErebosExquisite Bloodor any other cards that have lifelink tacked on them.

that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

BlackWitch on Kaalia, Goddess of Monsters

Hi Spirits

I just wanted to tell you, that this little bit of lifelink works just great in my deck. It helps me survive all the aggro crap of my opponents, till I can cast Kaalia of the Vast or attack with her safely.

Archangel of Thune not only gives me sustain, but also helps me much with keeping Kaalia of the Vast safe onto the battlefield from spells like Shock, Lightning Bolt or Umezawa's Jitte etc, which are real pain. It's a shame that I have never thought of this card earlier. I was convinced that it works only in decs with life gain.

And what is new. Now I find Griselbrand one of my favourite creatures. I was afraid of his high CMC but realized that Kaalia of the Vast is the best way to sneak him in ! Now he is all I need. Some lifegain and optional draw if needed. Better than Whip of Erebos

Vault of the Archangel also helps me a lot. Used to think that this 5CMC is a bit to much, but once I have Kaalia onto the battlefield I don't care about mana that much, so I can use it to activate this ability.

Grind on Your Loss is my Gain

one of my favorite ways to gain life is to get Thrashing Wumpus or Crypt Rats out and/or recur it with Whip of Erebos and then activate it as a lifelink-pestilence creature. its a boardwipe and you gain life equal to the toughness of all the creatures killed plus damage to opponents.

SaberTech on ~Life sucks~ Fat Karlov remains unbeaten.

Do you think it would be worth replacing True Conviction with Whip of Erebos? The whip is cheaper to cast, and considering that most of your creatures are small it seems like the lifelink part of True Conviction is the most relevant part. The whip also gives you the ability to pull a creature like Archangel of Thune, Resplendent Mentor, or Silverblade Paladin out of the graveyard for a turn if necessary. I know that the Double Strike from True Conviction would give you more opportunities to get counters onto Karlov, but without your experience with the deck I guess I can't properly judge how relevant that is in most games.
