Whisper, Blood Liturgist Discussion
20 hours ago
Lordrain1922, thanks for the feedback. I've been considering splashing green so that I could cast Darigaaz Reincarnated and Verdant Force if I need to, also green would give me access to a lot more enchantment removal, like Naturalize or Broken Bond to take care of Ixalan's Binding to take care of Ixalan's Binding. Alternatively i could run some graveyard recursion like Rise from the Grave or Boneyard Parley to get return Whisper, Blood Liturgist or any of the big creatures back, then even if they do use Ixalan's Binding I would still have a way to get Whisper, Blood Liturgist, and I could always just sideboard in Smelt or Goblin Trashmaster if they use Sorcerous Spyglass.

Hey all. So recently I decided to make a Whisper, Blood Liturgist EDH deck. It started out as a pile of random black cards until I discovered a combo that I think can make Whisper at least a little more competitive. Basically the goal is to cast Buried Alive to dump Necrotic Ooze, Phyrexian Devourer, and Triskelion. Then reanimate Nooze with Whisper or another similar effect. Exile your library with Necrotic Ooze + Phyrexian Devourer and ping everyone to death with Necrotic Ooze + Triskelion . Although this is a widely known combo, I have yet to see it used with Whisper deck. In its current iteration, the deck (linked below) is alright, however it is wildly inconsistent. Goldfished games can have wins on Turn 3-5 (optimal) with a good opening hand, but can also last until like Turn 15-18. In these games I am usually just sitting there clicking Next Turn and hoping to topdeck a Tutor, Buried Alive, or a creature to sac to Whisper. This is where you, the reader comes in. The current list is just cards I currently have available for the deck (some of my rocks are being used elsewhere) but I am aware of most cEDH staples. However, if anyone has any suggestions of cards I possibly haven't thought about, or (preferably) wants to work side by side with me to make Whisper a decent(ish) general for cEDH. Im looking for people who have at least a little experience with cEDH but any help would be greatly appreciated. Or, maybe this is just a stupid idea and Whisper has no place here at all. Anyway, here's what I have so far, and thanks in advance for anyone's help.

Oh! I forgot one!
Desecrated Tomb is just great. I'm not sure of where it could be good, but I love the design. Whisper, Blood Liturgist could probably use it, Squee, the Immortal gets another value engine, and what I thought of first after seeing it was Delve, working similarly to Rakshasa Vizier. I'm sure there's an infinite combo somewhere as well.

I haven't played Standard in well over a year, but I'll do my best:
- If you're concerned with Approach, more hand disruption might help, as well as more early plays to get some extra damage in. 1-2 copies of Unburden could be useful, and Miasmic Mummy pulls double duty
- Against aggro, more early plays will help. I recommend Miasmic Mummy again since it can block an early creature and pre-emptively stop a future play. I also recommend upping the count of Fatal Push
- Adding more cheap creatures also provides more ammo for Whisper, Blood Liturgist if you decide you want to have another copy of her for more consistency
- Settle the Score doesn't do enough to help your plan to justify how slow it is. Replace it with more copies of Fatal Push and/or Vraska's Contempt
- Gilded Lotus doesn't seem to help your plan at all. I think you'd be much better off replacing them with more Swamps. That will help you hit your land drops more consistently and makes Cabal Stronghold slightly better
- Replace Soul Salvage with Wander in Death as a straight upgrade, just in case you get into a situation where you need some other card more than the normal effect
- Taking out The Eldest Reborn and Duress will weaken your options against Teferi decks and other control decks, so consider that issue before doing it
- Morbid Curiosity and Fortuitous Find don't do anything for you. Take them out of the sideboard
- Is there a specific deck that makes you want to include Dispossess in the board? If not, consider taking it out

Golgari Grave-Troll + Life from the Loam + Stinkweed Imp all great means for self milling with dredge. Liliana, Death's Majesty, Living Death, Command Beacon would be really good additions. You have almost no means to sacrifice you own creatures to recur their effects, which is a key component to golgari/sultai. Whisper, Blood Liturgist + Diabolic Intent + Scourge of Nel Toth + Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Eater of Hope are great means for using the etb effect creatures to be able to re-use them again from grave. Replace Taigam, Sidisi's Hand with Sultai Ascendancy because it's pointless to skip your draw step, you never want to exile cards form your graveyard, and it's cheaper. Pelakka Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Rune-Scarred Demon, Journey to Eternity Flip, Pattern of Rebirth, The Mending of Dominaria, Birthing Pod, Mimic Vat, Nim Deathmantle, Sword of Feast and Famine, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Demonic Tutor; all should be considered.

Thank you a lot for the suggestions AdamChafee! I took a look at your deck as well and saw the similarities and differences between ours. You are correct about removing many of the outlier cards I have lingering about in the deck to increase performance, which should be easy with the ones that stand out such as Voracious Null and Whisper, Blood Liturgist. With creatures like Ghoulraiser some of the return spells are not needed so thank you for bringing that to my attention.
I see that your deck is very similar with more control for the early game, which is a good idea for insured safety in the early game. Zombies in my experience I have found to be a quick deck that can come online by about turn 4 in many great situations, so early game control feels like something that I don't necessarily need. I did actually used to have a couple Compelling Deterrence before swapping it for other spells and creatures.
I see that Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is slightly pricey, but not too much for the power it brings to the deck, so if I see it anywhere locally at stores I might just pick it up so thank you for that as well!
I greatly appreciate your feedback and I definitely will take many of your suggestions!

If you pay full cost you aren't cheating anymore, right? Isareth is cool, but being monocolored she won't become a premier reanimation strategy commander I don't think. I would rather run Karador, Ghost Chieftain or Muldrotha, the Gravetide 10 out of 10 times for such a strategy, but she could be cool in the 99 of a deck that wants to reanimate cheap creatures over and over. She's kind of like a backup Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. Adding to the critical mass of reanimation creatures like Alesha: Sun Titan, Devoted Crop-Mate, Bishop of Rebirth, etc. could be a cool angle for an army that never dies. I don't think it's going to make many waves in the format personally. I like Whisper, Blood Liturgist better as a card and you don't often see those decks.
