Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia

Legendary Creature — Human Wizard

At the beginning of your end step, if you control no creatures with decayed, create a 2/2 black Zombie creature token with decayed. (It can't block. When it attacks, sacrifice it at end of combat.)

brolio on Date a Caesar quello che e' di Caesar - LA LEGIONE

Nice decklist, we had the same idea !

It's awfully close to mine if you omit some lands : Indomitus.

If I can give you some comments/advice, I think you should replace Stroke of Midnight with Generous Gift, the 3/3 is almost always irrelevant and the ability to hit a key land is not the be underestimated.

Assemble the Legion is good on paper, but it's terribly slow, your're better off with another creature like Goblin Rabblemaster or the Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia already in your Maybeboard.

Otherwise, awesome list, keep it up !

Cheers

The list looks good. As someone who played something very similar previously (in a word when Fury was still legal), i’m not convinced you want Aether Vial or Deadly Dispute… the deck functions best when being hyper-aggressive, and while both of these cards serve as strong tempo-plays, they also buy your opponent time to stabilise. I’d rather see more aggressive options like Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia and/or Ob Nixilis, the Adversary, which both play well into the sacrifice payoffs while also applying more pressure to the opponent.

Totally understandable. I think checking out Isshin's EDHREC page, especially the token-focused variant should be a pretty close approximation of the kind of stuff that Caesar will want.

My only other suggestion would be to generally re-evaluate some of your token production slots, especially after you get some more playtest reps in. I think I counted about 20 creature token producing effects in your deck. You have a decent enough critical mass that you could probably cut 2-3 creature token producers. I used to run Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia, but that was mostly because I didn't want to buy a Bitterblossom lol. He's a token piece I think you could cut without missing much.

I wouldn't be surprised if Caesar ends up giving Isshin and Edgar a run for their money in terms of popularity for Mardu options. My love of Mardu started with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death until Isshin came along. Mardu has some of the most diverse design space in its commander options. Mr.House should be a lot of fun, I'm thinking of turning that precon into a Mr.House deck, depending on the amount of new dice rolling support that comes with it.

Sorry if some of these are pricier than what you're looking for, here are a few cards that are probably pretty good with Marneus. Pack Rat is probably worth a look, even if you use no other rats. Ogre Slumlord is a nice budget source of tokens, since the tokens have Deathtouch you have decent odds of making more tokens if people attack you. Ophiomancer is an interesting way to draw cards, you probably want some sacrifice outlets to draw a card on each turn. Shorikai, Genesis Engine works with or without your Commander, as does Faerie Formation. I think Mirror-Sigil Sergeant is pretty cool if you have your Commander out, you can make quite a few tokens if the Sergeant survives, but each is it's own trigger, so you'll draw lots of cards I think. Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia is an unusual token generator, though it'll max out at 1 token per turn it offers a way for that token to die each turn to make space. Pitiless Plunderer is probably a shoo-in with your Commander, Plunderer + Ashnod's Altar + Marneus = Draw your deck and infinite ETB/Death triggers. Similar to Plunderer but a bit different, Revel in Riches will draw a card each time an opponent's creature dies, and if you can amass enough treasure you just win on the spot.

If you typically have lots of small tokens as your main attack force you could try Meekstone, this type of card can be annoying if you play it without a plan, but most decks care more about untapping large creatures than you do. That said, it may attract some negative attention, something to keep in mind. There are also things like Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, War Tax, and Windborn Muse to consider, there are other similar cards.

Fun deck, In decks like these I like to include passive token generators that provide you with fodder so you don't have to sacrifice any utility creatures. Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia is great here as he generates tokens that sac themselves. Spawning Pit is an oft overlooked card that serves as both sac outlet and fodder generator. Plus there is good ol' Bitterblossom.

Skullclamp also seems like a great addition here.

Digging the Bob Ross name reference. I agree with the feedback from NV_1980 about lowering the curve a bit. Still helps to play a bit smoother against your wife and kids haha.

I'd recommend checking out Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia, Dreadhorde Invasion, and Curse of the Restless Dead as some fairly budget-ish token producers for your Casualty 2 needs. I found them all to be pretty helpful when I was playing Anhelo, before I retired the deck.

The new Lord of the Rings set is also introducing a new variety of Amass cards for more token fodder, a lot of which are in Grixis colors.

Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia is already a decent token generator - if you’re looking for more Headless Rider does a good job also.

I think the thing to keep in mind with zombies is that their strength is in their ability to play very aggressively - if a game goes long you’re in trouble. So try not to focus too much into the grindy options, as you’ll often lose those interactions.
