[[Primer]]-God of the Rising FULL Moon! Butts Up!!

Currently the #1 The Scarab God deck on TappedOut!

Currently the #14 overall EDH deck on TappedOut!

The Scarab God is a part God, part zombie, part beetle butt wiggling in the air. Although the Lore (read below) calls him the "God of the Rising Sun," it is only fitting that we now call him the "God of the Rising MOON!"

This is a Zombie deck that also includes mill, to feed The Scarab God 's hunger, and control to protect my army of the dead.

I want to optimize both of my commanders abilities. The first one is great with my tribal theme, as it does not just whittle away at all of my opponents, but it also provides great card advantage.

The second ability makes me want to splash in some mill. I feel like I should go deeper into mill in order to optimize this second ability. What do you think? Worse case, it is great graveyard hate!

I also include Flash enablers, like Winding Canyons , Leyline of Anticipation , and Vedalken Orrery , to compliment a control build, as well as being able to bring out The Scarab God prior to my Upkeep.

Please leave feedback! Also, please upvote so that others can see my deck as well. Thank you!!!

In ancient Egypt, the Scarab represented new creation and eternal life. When someone wore the famous Scarab amulet, it was said to protect them against immense evil.

The insect itself is a species of dung beetle. The process of rolling a ball of dung across the ground was paralleled to the movement of the sun across the sky (those Egyptians had quite the imagination). Additionally, the scarab often lays eggs in dead bodies, which was a symbol for life being created from dead matter.

Did anyone notice that The Scarab God 's head/butt is upside down and his butt is in the air???

If The Scarab God had a name, it could be Khepri, after the Egyptian God of the Rising Sun. Khepri represents rejuvenation, divine wisdom and immortality. Interesting enough, Egyptian mythology has a story about how the body of Khepri is divided and buried every night, just to be resurrected the next morning! Zombie parallels anyone?! Khepri gave the promise of a renewable life after death to all that follow him.

Updates Add

I guess an annual upgrade seems fair! I wish I would update the list more often, but I have honestly played the deck less then a dozen times this year... who would think having kids would be so busy, lol. The deck is still a ton of fun when I have a chance to play it though!

What do you think about these changes?

Phenax was only ok most of the time. It also brought a ton of hate just sitting on the board. Josu is just to cool not to include I think.

After a ton suggestions, I am giving Noosegraf a shot!

Just wanted to try out Geth....

Removal for better-ish removal.

Market was good, but not amazing. I find that mastery has more of an effect on the board though.

I always found the Rooftop was dead most of the time. I was in need a useful board-wipe anyway.

One wincon out for a better one (and a whole lot more fun!)

Easy tutor upgrade!

I felt like more removal was needed after a bunch of playtesting. Tutoring was not really needed for a non-combo package.

Both removal cards, Lili is just more flexible.

Clear land upgrades!
