Acererak the Archlich

Acererak the Archlich

Legendary Creature — Zombie Wizard

When this enters the battlefield, if you haven't completed the Tomb of Annihilation dungeon, return this to its owner's hand and venture into the dungeon. (If you aren't venturing through a dungeon, choose one of the dungeon cards you own from outside the game, put it into the command zone and put a venture counter on the first room of that dungeon. All effects of that room trigger. When you venture into the dungeon while you have a dungeon in the command zone, advance to the next room downward of your choice and triggering all effects of that room. When you have resolved the effects of the last room of the dungeon, remove that dungeon from the game. You can only venture through one dungeon at a time.)

When this attacks, for each opponent, you create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token unless that player sacrifices a creature.

  1. Buy the precon. It already has quite a few things in there.
  2. What kind of commander do you want to play? Somewhat casual, or is your playgroup okay with infinite combos?

The precon already contains Rooftop Storm for example.. adding something like Acererak the Archlich or Gravecrawler will allow for going infinite. If you don't want to do that, just gravecrawler is sufficient.

The precon also contain Diregraf Colossus and Endless Ranks of the Dead to your deck. Here is the list: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/4296394#paper

Nice to see another deck with Muldrotha, the Gravetide and zombie tribal. Im also rebuilding my deck with the new cards from Midnight Hunt. Why are you using Acererak the Archlich in this deck? Thought about it, but in every test, he was to slow to benefit from his abilities. Did you tought about less sorcery and instant spells to use Muldrotha, the Gravetide abilities? For example, you can switch Hero's Downfall with Attrition. Nearly same usecase but you can recast Attrition from your graveyard with Muldrotha, the Gravetide. Nice deck, i like it! :D

Acererak the Archlich goes is an infinite wincon with rooftop storm. Syr Konrad, the Grim works well with all the graveyard shenanigans. Murder is just unplayable as there are so many other cards that do the same thing for one less mana, might I recommend Walk the Plank as a good alternative. Also, your ramp needs help. First of all you need a bit more. I’d recommend 8 to 10 sources of ramp. Dimir Signet and Arcane Signet would be good includes. Thran Dynamo would really help you ramp into your commander and other high mana bombs faster. Temple of the False God is ramp out of a land slot. There are a few ideas to help ya get to tuning the deck. Have fun branching out into Commander, it’s the best format in town!

May I interest you in Tombstone Stairwell? It's quite the powerhouse in Wilhelt. Also, since you are already running Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm, you might consider the Rooftop Storm + Acererak the Archlich infinite combo.

I'd recommend Displacer Beast it is a more expensive Acererak the Archlich so if you ever have a lot of mana you might win the game or at least get a lot of value. If you were to go infinite mana either of them wins the game on the spot. Even if you don't go for infinite though Displacer Beast like Acererak will give a way to activate the dungeon consistently on your terms.

Rooftop Storm creates an infinite wincon with Acererak the Archlich if that kinda thing appeals to you…

I need to consider adding some combos for infinite black and blue mana, Acererak the Archlich and Displacer Beast just make going that route rather tempting. There are likely some other good ways to do it too in these colors with other bounce/flicker effects too.
