Description

Goat Mom is absolutely the Best Mom.Zedruu Enjoying a Nice Book

(Please note that I'm currently trying to do a thing in CSS to make this page look good. If the page is all messed up, that's why.)

     Welcome, Human, to the Underground. And welcome to the Ruins! Here we think only for each other and are only nice people. Here, let me show you how it's done; have this nice-looking Crown of Doom! Didn't that feel nice?

     Anyways, we here at the Ruins are all about giving people things they totally want. You know, like that Aggressive Mining they've been eyeing up, or that Pyromancer's Swath. I bet their Green/Black deck could sure use one of those!

     Other than just giving people things that they totally want, we also like to give out freebies to the entire class! Our main source of this being Assemble the Legion + Cultural Exchange, or Puca's Mischief. Generally when we end up doing this, people are so happy that they give us their things in return! Isn't that so nice?

     We also LOVE hugs, and think that the entire group deserves them from time to time. Which is why we've added tons of Group Hug cards to give to others! That way, they'll be less compelled to murder you horribly as you easily outpace their draw because you've entrusted them with a very very important Font of Mythos. Or it could be that Statecraft, who knows?

     Anyways, if your friends are still being mean to you, despite all of your thoughtful gifts, why don't you give them more gifts? Here's an idea: why don't you wrap up one of there things and give it to them? How happy would they be when their 9999/9999 Nimbus Swimmer is wrapped up in your own custom Oblivion Ring gift wrap? They'll be so excited to receive such a gift that they couldn't possibly be mean to you any more!

     Finally, have fun here in the ruins. Oh, and be sure to be home in time for dinner! I'm trying a new way to prepare snails, as detailed in this fantastic book 72 Uses for Snails. Have fun until then!

Suggestions

Updates

I've realized that Zedruu isn't the best commander, so I'm giving up on making the deck viable to make it flavorful~

So, without further ado, meet the rest of the Undertale Cast!

The Ruins / Home: Academy Ruins, Buried Ruin, Scorched Ruins
Undyne: Harbinger of the Tides, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, True-Name Nemesis
Asgore: Ruhan of the Fomori
Alphys: Mindclaw Shaman
Annoying Dog: Isamaru, Hound of Konda

Please, if you have any other ideas for characters/places to add, feel free to suggest things~

Like the deck +1

I just started playing Zedruu the Greathearted and am looking for some ideas to switch it up. If you could take a look at it, maybe you'll see something that would work well in this deck as well (Needs Help!) Zedruu, the Not-So-Greathearted

Phyrexian Unlife + Form of the Dragon makes you nearly unkillable

October 26, 2016 1:22 p.m.

jrdnhwll - While I don't see what you mean by that combo, Form of the Dragon is more for throwing at people anyways. Then I can take them out much more easily after either having it removed, or just by using Bronze Bombshell.

if you have both on your side of the field, and someone hits you for say 10, you would be at -5 lifethey would have to damage you with another damage source to start putting infect counters on you through Phyrexian Unlifeand then on the next end step, your life becomes 5 again, so you have to be hit with two different sources of damage again

October 26, 2016 3:39 p.m.

jrdnhwll - The problem with that is that my meta is all about having tons of creatures. Most games are decided by massive armies and lots of maths. I don't see the appeal of it, honestly.

understandable

i run it in my zedruu deck, but we are definitely doing two different things entirely. i'm much more on the pillow fort and combo side

awesome deck, though!

Beautiful deck, i love the ideia, too bad you are not using Harmless Offering, everyone loves to receive cute cats.
Feel free to give away Humans/Soldiers with this custom token i made some time ago,
For pure flavor, your deck needs more skeletons (Skeletal Grimace), dogs (Isamaru, Hound of Konda), Goat Dads (Mountain Goat) and murderous fish ladies (Master of the Pearl Trident) (not actually a fish or a lady)

November 1, 2016 2:01 p.m.

Burila24 says... #11

well the image link didn't go through, so nevermind the token. not sure why it doesn't work.

November 1, 2016 2:02 p.m.

Burila24 - Thanks for the ideas on flavorful adds. Sadly, there are no Skeletons that fit into Zedruu the Greathearted's color identity. I'll have to toss in Isamaru, Hound of Konda for the dog flavor. As far as Fish Warriors go, I'm torn between Harbinger of the Tides and Maritime Guard for a base card.. I'll have to look a bit further into Goats to see how the goat dad's going to end up.

November 2, 2016 9:09 a.m.

Actually, I really like the looks of Halimar Wavewatch and Veteran of the Depths if I got some art commissioned.

I love the deck.

I am curious for wins/kills if you would run: A. Transcendence if you can cast it, survive, and give away you just kill EDH players.

B. Laboratory Maniac, and Arjun, the Shifting Flame to combo with your Alhammarret's Archive. Draw and cast into win.

Couple of quick questions:

1) I see a lot of Zedruu decks run, Solitary Confinement and I was wondering how well it works out for you? I've been hesitant to add it to my deck because I'm a little skeptical about having to discard cards to keep it online. I'm guessing it's situational?

2) Venser, the Sojourner is in here, Is he worth it?

3) If you had to choose one, would you choose either Lightmine Field , Monastery Siege , or Silent Arbiter?

4) Leyline of Anticipation looks like it would be immensely useful, is it?

November 17, 2016 11:37 a.m.

Love-in-Theory -

As far as Solitary Confinement goes, it's used because Zedruu doesn't draw on the draw step. If you can keep at least 2 things on other people's fields, you'll play your turn out like normal but be invincible.

Venser, the Sojourner is in there mostly as a panic button. If you find that your opponents are using your things against you, you can use him to get them back to your field. Also it combos real well with Gilded Drake

If I had to choose only one of those, I'd choose Silent Arbiter, but it really depends on the deck you're facing. If they're going to storm you out, Monastery Siege is better. Lightmine Field is really just there to be really obnoxious for token decks to deal with.

Yeah, Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery would be great adds.

Thanks for the response!

I bet Chasm Skulker can get really big. You can also donate the little squid friends you get when it dies. (beware of islandwalk!) How useful is it for you? If it turns out to be helpful, I might pick one up. I've been eyeing that, and Phyrexian Unlife

December 9, 2016 2:39 p.m.

Love-in-Theory - I bet Chasm Skulker really is useful. I haven't really gotten him out yet cause my playgroup hasn't met up in a while. I looked at Phyrexian Unlife and don't really see the appeal. I guess it would save you for about one attack, but it wouldn't really get you back up off the ground ever.

December 11, 2016 2:59 p.m.

I've only been considering Phyrexian Unlife to pair it with Form of the Dragon. Like a last resort kind of thing. Maybe pair that with a Paradox Haze?

December 11, 2016 4:24 p.m.

Love-in-Theory - I still feel it'd be a bit of a dead draw most of the time and not as helpful as, say Sphere of Safety in protecting you when you're down.

I love this deck! I myself am an avid Zedruu the Greathearted player! It's nice seeing others!

I absolutely LOVE the idea of a Toriel alter! May I ask how you obtained it? I might want one of my own.

January 11, 2017 12:18 a.m.

Viarax - I had it commissioned and spent about 30 minutes photoshopping it onto the card. You can use one of the alter's I uploaded on here if you'd like. I'll have to get someone to properly put it on a card one day.

I'm personally a fan of Zedruu Chaos of sorts. Cards like Possibility Storm and Confusion in the Ranks are hilarious

Why run the Guildgate lands when you could just run the Theros Temple lands instead? Not only are they more affordable, but they're much more useful. So instead I suggest Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Triumph, and Temple of Epiphany

If you have a little more money, you could always go for Shock Lands, or god forbid the original dual lands

February 17, 2017 9:21 a.m.

nintendo917 - Yeah, you're right about the Temples. I'll have to go out and get a few. As far as Shocks go, I've just got my first set in paper recently but they went in a different deck of mine. I'll get them eventually, though~

(not getting duals not worth it)

How about Delaying Shield? Prevent lethal damage and then gift it back :)

February 17, 2017 10:25 a.m.

You idiot. Down here, its Kill or be killed.

Die.

Darker, Darker, Yet Darker

good job with the reference though.
