Thanks for the feedback Yeti_Confetti. I was a bit worried the mana might be a bit low, despite it being quite a cheap deck - but we all know how frustrating it is when you can't draw enough mana! I'd forgotten all about Unearth. I've used Zombify in the past, but its a bit expensive at 4 mana. Unearth is perfect because its cheap and all my lords cost 3 I've updated the deck, but it still might be a bit creature heavy. I could probably do away with Soulless One as this deck isn't really about having powerful creatures, or maybe put them on the Sideboard I'm open to suggestions

DemonDragonJ on Hybrid Cards that Render Mono-Colored ...

1 week ago

Now that Nature's Chant has rendered both Naturalize and Disenchant obsolete, I feel that it may start a trend, so I have been looking for other cards that have colorshifted versions, to make hybrid cards that render them obsolete, as well, and here is another idea that I have had.

As I have previously noted, Harmless Offering is nearly a colorshifted version of Donate, so here is a card that combines those two cards into one.

Harmless Donation Show

I made this card able to target only opponents so that a player could not permanently gain control of a permanent that they had temporarily stolen from another player.

What does everyone else say about this card? How good is it?

I am attempting to create a black/white hybrid card that renders both Zombify and Resurrection obsolete, but I cannot conceive of an interesting name for such a card, so does anyone have any suggestions for such a card?

Here is another such card:

Hellfire Demon Show

This card references Pestilence Demon (which itself is a creature version of Pestilence) and also Pyrohemia, a colorshifted version of Pestilence. Direct damage has moved primarily from red to black, hence to red in this creature’s cost, but black can still have it, on occasion, as well, which is why this creature is mutlicolored. I reduced both the casting cost and power of the creature, because I believe that 8 mana is simply too much for such an effect, in my mind.

What does everyone else think of this card? Do you like it?

As I conceive of further cards on this subject, I shall post them, here.

Get rid of Unearth and Zombify and replace them with Reanimate and Animate Dead. I really like some of your choices like Ordeal of Nylea, super good with the ability to sac it right away. A few other cards in here I'm contemplating adding to my build as well but the usual struggle of what to take out is always the hardest part. Cool deck,+1! Thanks for checking out my build and upvoting, I appreciate it!

Have you considered Phyrexian Delver over Zombify? I guess its the same CMC dilemma as Beacon of Unrest, but you can sac the delver (and even recur it). I usually get pretty good multiple use out of it even with the life cost. I would still consider a Stitch Together or Nim Deathmantle over Zombify. (which nim has the nasty potential of going infinite with Ashnod's Altar)

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant target card in your graveyard.

If enchanted card would be exiled from your graveyard by a source you don't control, exile this enchantment instead.

They say death is but only the beginning...

So if you have something spicy in your graveyard and want to maintain access to it, this becomes exiled instead. For example, perhaps you have something you are wanting to hit with Zombify , such as some giant stupid Eldrazi or whatever. If you have this card attached to it and your opponent hits you with a Bojuka Bog or whatever, that card remains in your graveyard after everything else is exiled.

I really, really wanted to add Flash onto it so that you can do it in response to your graveyard being hit, but I opted out of this as I feel it would make it a bit too powerful.

I want you to take your favorite Sorcery from the current Standard pool of cards and turn it into a full-fledged Planeswalker. It doesn't have to be a competitive card in Standard; Just whichever Sorcery has caught your eye the most.

Protip: Design the ultimate around the Sorcery in question, then build the remaining two abilities to work with it in synergy.

     Great suggestions Tata! I'm actually planning to include Zombify AND Dread Return but my LGS has a hard time keeping this card in-stock it seems. Three trips now and no dice haha (same issue with Anger & Dictate of Erebos )

     I definitely have a soft spot for Flayer of the Hatebound , especially in conjunction with Stalking Vengeance and/or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . In combo with Birthing Pod it allows me to pull two creatures instead of one, which in-and-of-itself is fairly appealing. You're not wrong, I just like the options the card provides.

     Now that I've removed Siege-Gang Commander the Marsh Flitter has become pretty one-dimensional. Definitely on the cut list. Generator Servant will likely stay.. this card is really quite good. It has in-built synergy with Korvold and early in the game has been able to eat removal spells on numerous occasions.

     When I first constructed this deck I had Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Burnished Hart & Explosive Vegetation in it. Since switching to Korvold as the Commander and especially since the addition of Sol Ring , Ashnod's Altar & Phyrexian Altar casting my Commander has never been an issue. Once Korvold hits the field the Card Draw is really gratuitous. So-much-so that I've recently decided a Reliquary Tower is a necessity. In this kind of deck drawing cards will always be a better alternative to ramp spells (in my opinion). In the rare circumstance I struggle to get to five mana, perhaps I'll regret this sentiment and make changes, but consistently it has not been an issue [thus far] with this deck.

I think you can cut Zombify for Dread Return and feel 100% confident that you replaced it with something strictly better.

I don't think you have enough support/synergy to make Flayer of the Hatebound viable.

Your deck seems to lack non-creature interaction and ramp. I think you can cut some of the weaker cards like Marsh Flitter and Generator Servant for staples like Beast Within , Skyshroud Claim , Nature's Lore , etc.

Hey man! This guy looks like an interesting commander... Here're some suggestions. Feel free to ignore any or all of them.

  1. Blood Celebrant : I don't know how important this is, but being able to pay three life for a generic mana seems pretty good. This means you can use phyrexian mana in order to cast your artifacts like Prism Ring .

  2. From a perspective with zero experience with your general, repeatable life-gain seems really good. I approve of your extort stuff; consider running Twilight Prophet . Your current average CMC is 4.34, which means it's usually gonna do a little more than a bolt and gain you that much life, while building card-advantage.

  3. Life may get tight, so Toxic Deluge is going to have an unusually high cost. I still think it's good and that you should run it, but consider Dead of Winter and all Snow-Covered Swamp s as well. The cost on that would be lower, as it doesn't cause you to lose life, which you use to cast spells.

  4. Dark Petition is a good tutor to consider. I think it's better than Cruel Tutor , assuming you don't want to run Vampiric Tutor (which is better yet).

  5. Mana Vault , Mana Crypt , Charcoal Diamond , Thought Vessel , Mind Stone , Prismatic Lens , Jet Medallion and Coldsteel Heart are all worth considering. The two-mana rocks will allow you to cast your general turn-three, which enables your deck.

  6. A reanimation package is something to think about, especially with concern to recurring your Kokusho, the Evening Star . Entomb / Buried Alive paired with Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Necromancy , Reanimate or even straight-up Zombify is a great way to recur threats for cheap, or Entomb them and then reanimate them.

  7. Speaking of reanimation, Vilis, Broker of Blood is an EXCELLENT reanimation target for this deck.

Right. That's all I got. Good luck!
