BertilFalukorv on Need a home for my …

My favorite card is a black enchantment on the Reserved list that I got two copies of a while back before the prices skyrocketed. But I never found a proper home for it.

The card in question is Tombstone Stairwell

As long as my yard always have more creatures than my opponents it will never be worth attacking me since then I can always outblock their tombspawn tokens.

Below I've listed what some of the colors can do to bring this card to life. (hehe) I know there are a lot more and please don't hestitate to type in your suggestions so that I can add to the list. The reason I list them is to make it easier to think of what kind of deck I could run this in as a "win-more-card" without ruining the deck so it fails of my yard gets emptied. It's also worth noting that the tokens gets Destroyed so if you make your creatures indestructible with something like Eldrazi Monument you get to keep your tokens where your opponents have to destroy theirs.


RED • ETB triggers like Purphoros, God of the Forge

• Cool Synnergy with Deathbringer Thoctar which is extra nice since it's also a Zombie

BLACK • Various Deathtriggers like Blood Artist

• Sac outlets

WHITE • Great Synnergy with Cathars' Crusade

• Some Deathtriggers

• Has some nice player protection (To avoiod effects like Bojuka Bog and also nice recursion of enchantments and/or protection for enchantments.

GREEN • Good recursion cards, even on bodies like Eternal Witness to mention one of many.

• Death Presence

BLUE • Draws a lot of cards

• Protects gameplan and has some good Counter Triggered a bility cards like Stifle and Nimble Obstructionist which is extra nice to have on a body that also draws a card.

Basically I've made decks around this a hundred times but when I'm about to finish I feel like I'm lacking something in the colors I'm in or something else, I'm lost in what direction I should go to make the best out of this without having a poop deck till all the stars align.

Best Commanders I can think of as of yet:

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death Aristocrats

Kresh the Bloodbraided works well with this too, currently I'm building him in a more traditional direction since I fell in love with this commander for some reason. :)

Teysa, Orzhov Scion Aristocrat Tokens

Teysa Karlov Aristocrat Deathtriggers

Ghave, Guru of Spores w/o going for inf combo wincon

Grismold, the Dreadsower

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

Varina, Lich Queen Seems perfect in many ways for this too.

I currently run it in a Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver but I never gotten to cast it yet. The boring thing about Zombie tribal is that it's boring to build and somewhat fun to play (Play zombies, play lords, swing) and it leaves for a less interactive gameplay. It's a solid deck but it doesnt feel very spicy.

I don't necessarly need to run the most optimized deck to have fun or run the most expensive cards. I'm helpful for all the Ideas you can bring me as I seem to have hit a wall where I don't know what to do anymore.

Currently I'm leaning towards either of Teysa's or Alesha.

TL:DR What deck or what colors do you think Tombstone Stairwell would do best in?

Much appreciated. :)

Dray119 on Multicolor Protection Interaction with Jarad, …

I wanted to know how Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and his 2nd ability worked with Multicolor protection creatures you control like Stonecoil Serpent.

Will I be able to sack the stonecoil serpent creature with Jarad and make opponents lose life since it says "sacrifice another creature" and not the word "target" at all during the 2nd ability. I think this would work and get around the protection, but I wanted to make sure this works since Jarad is a green/black multicolored creature.

Story from a couple of years (and play groups) ago.

Had a game where I was playing a very janky Progenitus commander deck in a 3 player pod. Was playing against Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and another deck (can't remember the commander). My deck was this big, slow, battlecruiser deck (which is not the kind of deck I normally play) and was getting targetted by both players becuase I had some big beaters in play.

The Jarad player, who was a notoriously toxic player - the kind who people flat out refused to play with and eventaully was told he could no longer play in the group, was acting quite cocky about having me on the ropes. I top decked and hard cast an Iona, Shield of Emeria naming black (as both my opponents had black), to which the toxic player starts whining that every single card in his hand was black and that I had effectively locked him out of the game.

Proceeded to go on and win, but not without having to put up with a bunch of complaints (for toxic player, the other guy was cool). Didn't feel bad in the slightest.

Pikobyte which for 4 mana (1 for Kaya's Ghostform and 3 for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord ) to deal 18 damage that I can repeat as long as I have the mana to do so is a lot.

Pikobyte for instance I have Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord which may cost 2 more than a Blasting Station but it deals x6 the damage to everyone not just 1 player.

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord one of my fav golgari sac creatures, might make a good finisher since all your cards are such low cmc Abrupt Decay super clutch G/B control card. Lotleth Troll and Relentless Dead make for great sacrifice cratures Viscera Seer and Carrion Feeder can be pretty clutch Rancor is nice as well to keep those lowbies swingin.
