Entreat the Dead Discussion

Xephon_ on Zaxara, the Exemplary: Hydra Infestation

Mudbutt, similarly to the Green Sun's Zenith conversation in the archives, since most of the creatures are X costed and are at base 0/0, they would die as they enter the battlefield from Entreat the Dead. Also, most of the creatures that will be dying anyways are the hydra tokens created by Zaxara, the Exemplary which cannot be brought back from the graveyard. Tokens cease to exist as soon as they hit the graveyard. This was a good idea, but probably not the best.

I wonder if Entreat the Dead would be a nice addition to this deck. It maintains the X factor the deck is built upon and returns creatures from the graveyard. So should Black Sun's Zenith be used as a board wipe, you can recover.

Here's some change I do on my deck:

  • Skullclamp -> Seal of the Guildpact : Seal of the Guildpact have too much high CMC for the value that I can gain with it, so I change with something that will make me draw a lot more cards (mostly because of Teysa's doubling trigger).
  • Scheming Symmetry -> Tome of the Guildpact: Tome of the Guildpact has too much high CMC to draw a card sometimes and tap for one mana, so I prefer to use a tutor that can give me an opportunity to do some politic with someone.
  • Leonin Relic-Warder -> Solemn Simulacrum: I have a lot of card that make me draw a card of make me more mana, do I decide to put an infinite combo piece in this deck.
  • Animate Dead -> Ethereal Absolution: Ethereal Absolution has a high CMC only to buff a little bit my creature (and so to ruin skullclamp potential) nd to make a 1/1 spirit. I choose to put an infitie combo piece that will help me sometimes.
  • Swords to Plowshares > Unmake : It's more effective!
  • Generous Gift > Mortify : I can choose a permanent, so I'm not restrict to choose a creature or an enchantment.
  • Idyllic Tutor > Altar's Reap : I highly prefer tutoring than drawing cards. Plus, Idyllic Tutor is not so expensive and I can choose an enchantment that will make me win easier!
  • Living Death > Entreat the Dead: I will try Living Death (hey, that's my deck name!), seeing if this card will help me a lot. If it's not the case, I will change it with Entreat the Dead.
  • Astral Cornucopia -> Orzhov Signet : I want to have an artifact that will make me a lot of mana, and Astral Cornucopia is something that I really want to try!
  • Crypt Ghast -> Dutiful Attendant: Crypt Ghast will help me ramping my deck if I need some manas, but I keep in mind Dutiful Attendant in case I see a place for him.

A big thanks to multimedia for the tips!

some recursion can be good to a golgari deck. Reanimate, Beacon of Unrest, Entreat the Dead or Thrilling Encore after a boardwipe.

Cards I would take out: (I wrote this out and lost it so I'll be brief) Chittering Witch, The Elderspell, Hierophant's Chalice, Indestructibility, and Chromatic Lantern. Stuff I would put in for sure: Panharmonicon Stuff to Consider: Baleful Strix Entreat the Dead

I have more recommendations but I have not the time atm

Hey all! I made some edits to the deck recently with some cards from C19 and Eldraine:

I playtested the deck last Friday and Backdraft Hellkite helped me quite a bit. Let me know your thoughts on the new inclusions!

Rock Hydra would be fun in this deck. Rhythm of the Wild might be good in this deck as well. Vastwood Hydra may also be a good addition to this deck. Wildest Dreams is good recursion. Entreat the Dead and Living Death may also help. Explosive Vegetation , Kodama's Reach , Farseek , Peregrination and Untamed Wilds are also good ramp spells.

I hope this helps!

I’d suggest using a Reliquary Tower and not Spellbook , which will also free up a card spot. Entreat the Dead is a decent graveyard-to-battlefield resurrection, and with the lifegain theme in your deck you could probably make use of Bolas's Citadel or the new Ajani, Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

Something like Well of Lost Dreams , Twilight Prophet or Dawn of Hope would be some good card draw.

Since you have a lot of black devotion on permanents, Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a pretty good card.

Crypt Ghast is a black mana doubler with Extort.

Ravos, Soultender has the ability to bring back your creatures. That’s a pretty expensive card though, so even Felidar Sovereign is a win if you have enough life gain going on.

Maybe you’ve already considered these, but hopefully the suggestions will help
