Thraximundar, the leader of a mighty zombie army, and the head of a sacrificial prophecy. The prophecy foretells of an Army of the Damned rising up and taking the world as their own. Thraximundar consulted the Prince of Thralls on how to go about this prophecy. The Prince told of only one way, a Grave Pact with the Defiler of Souls, the defiler told Thraximundar that there needed to be a rite of passage...

In the "Rooftop Storm +Diregraf Captain +Gravecrawler +Grimgrin, Corpse-Born =Infinite loss of life and infinite counters on Grimgrin" combo, you don't need Gravecrawler , you can just use your commander instead, because he's got zombie as part of his creature type.

Commander tax, I think it still applies. Grave crawler is good on his own as well

Commander tax or not, Rooftop Storm says you may pay 0 rather than the mana cost. Since the "tax" is technically part of the casting cost (or in this wording, mana cost) of the card, should work fine, yeah? Though it's not nearly as impressive as utilizing Gravecrawler instead.

Nevermind the facts like "Grimmy states 'Another Creature'" and you'd have to waste your other sac cards on him to do the trick" or "Oh, and no counters for Grimmy." =(

Thank you for clearing that up marz1342, some people at my local game place were telling me that the tax applied when I went to play my commander from the command zone.

@dethjakal -- So, don't hate me; I was wrong. According to Epoch and the rules, the costs of commanders are (CMC + 2c), where c is the number of times the Commander has been cast from the Command Zone.

In short, Rooftop Storm does not cover the additional cost to cast from the Command Zone. So, he would cost 2 the second cast, 4 the third, 6 for the fourth and so on. Sorry again!

Ah, that's quite interesting. That makes Thraximundar not really a viable candidate for the whole sac and replay thing unless I have a way to pull him out of the yard.

Really sick deck! Thraximundar is an awesome commander. Any suggestions that I would make would be from my thrax deck: Thraximundar - Artist of Demise so you can take a look and see if you get some cool ideas. Mine is more of a combo deck so our decks run very differently but we both still share the grixis shell.

Hell's Caretaker , Corpse Hauler , and Doomed Necromancer give you recursion plus a sac outlet (which are both very valuable for a sacrifice deck), Attrition and Bone Splinters give you targeted removal plus a sac outlet, Diabolic Intent gives you tutoring plus a sac outlet, Gate to Phyrexia gives you serious artifact hate plus a sac outlet, Glen Elendra Archmage gives you a counterspell plus sac outlet, and Mind Slash gives you hand control plus a sac outlet. With a deck like this, you ALWAYS want an opportunity to chew up creatures.

Mind Slash is a really interesting prospect, seeing as I dont really have any other form of discard in the deck... But, seeing as they reveal and I pick a card I can see it being a viable thing.

I ran Gate to Phyrexia for a little while, but it is just way to slow

Ashnod's altar + Nim deathmantle + Grave titan + Diregraf captain/blood artist= end gamer, just a little tip hehe

I'd suggest Inexorable Tide , but thraximundar seems to be the only one I can find who benefits from the proliferating.

okay, never mind, you have 2 of my favorite cards, Lightning Reaver + Necropolis Regent

Have you tried Altar of Dementia?

October 5, 2014 12:04 p.m.

I'd recommend Unholy Grotto in this deck considering the zombie creatures you have here.

October 27, 2014 9:48 a.m.

You should add Insurrection I know it is high costed but it is worth it to swing out with all your opponents things then sac outlet them so they get nothing back.

Have you thought about Liliana of the Veil? Seems like it would be fantastic in here.

Also, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker Would also work well.

I kind of want to run this deck, but a lot of the cards are out of my budget range, do you have any suggestions what I could cut?

kdchmln says... #22

Cool deck, but with 40 out of 64 spells being 4-drops or higher, isn't this waaay too slow, even for commander?

Leserrya000 says... #23

I would recommend deathbringer thoctar for token control against elf and goblin decka, but overall very similar to my thrax deck

dethjakal says... #24

Leserrya000 Yeah, i'll stick it in the side then, not a whole lot of token in our playgroup it seems
