ichibancho on Orah's Dirty Clergy [Aristostax EDH]

Thanks for the feedback. I think that if I were to add more lands I would follow your advice regarding Night's Whisper and Village Rites and pull those. I went with 3 Midnight Reaper effects, I think that's enough. I originally had Reaper in over Species Specialist but I decided the extra mana cost was worth not losing the life and when Specialist is a creature that's a little bit better Orah death trigger. I kinda pretty much agree with the Daru Spiritualist and Shaman en-Kor analysis, but I'm struggling to not put in any sub-par clerics, and I really didn't want to put in to many clerics with Tap abilities. Geralf's Messenger is actually my primary win condition. There is a way or two to put together infinite death triggers and win through a Zulaport Cutthroat effect; but I decided to skip all that (except for the Cruel Celebrant ) and go with the Geralf's Messenger + Luminous Broodmoth combo, because I already want Broodmoth out every single game. Messenger also combos with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician or Conspiracy + Suncleanser .

Thanks so much for your input!

Of the two drop clerics that are not A-Listers, which have you found to be the most impact-full?

     ichibancho: That's a nice looking deck list! The only hangup I have is that you're only running 30 lands. Nothing in your deck is terribly expensive to cast, I think 5 being the highest CMC. You've got some ramp creatures and spells that I think are kind of redundant given the low casting cost of the deck. More often than not I think you'd prefer to draw a land than Priest of Gix . Same goes for Land Tax & Tithe . All great spells in their own right, but generally speaking I think hitting land drops every turn is going to be better for the deck's performance. I'd aim for 34 or 35 lands. =)

     Stuff like Night's Whisper and Village Rites is okay too, but you would get considerably more value out of something like a Midnight Reaper , Phyrexian Arena or even Relic Vial .

     There's a few creatures in there I wouldn't bother with. Daru Spiritualist , Shaman en-Kor and Geralf's Messenger are all places I'd be looking to add lands or upgrades. With Conspiracy out Geralf's Messenger is pretty sick value, but to me that's not enough of a reason to keep him. If you're looking for the life-loss I'd suggest Zulaport Cutthroat or Bastion of Remembrance .

     I tried to build this deck to function competently without Orah in play. Especially if you're winning the game, your opponents are definitely going to try to keep your Commander off the board. Sometimes I am a bit short on Clerics, but because the deck doesn't hinge on Orah's ability it has never really been a problem. One game in particular I was kind of frustrated that I couldn't hit a 3 drop Cleric for combo chains, but I ended up bleeding my opponents out with Karmic Guide + Reveillark + Zulaport Cutthroat haha, so it really depends on how you play the game out more than the tools you're drawing. =)

Hey, have more confidence in your deck building because this is a fine start on a low budget if it's your second deck.

You already have Wonder which is good since it's the card I suggest the most that players add with Varina. My advice is focus more on Zombies and cards that can support Zombie tribal. More Zombies, less nonZombie creatures.

Budget cards all less than $1 each to consider adding:

Amass is an effect that creates a Zombie token.

Consider more cards that require you use life because Varina is a life gaining engine with Zombies.


Next step is to add 35 more lands to have a manabase to playtest. Get a temporary manabase in place with basic lands to see how many spots you have left to fill with nonland cards or how many nonland cards to cut. Make sure that basic Swamps are the most lands because you need black mana the most with Zombies.

Some budget lands $1-$2 or less each to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

RedFlag on The Scarab God

Liliana's Devotee, Necrotic Hex, Shepherd of Rot, Tormod, the Desecrator, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Dread Summons are cards to consider

Liliana's Standard Bearer and Midnight Reaper as draw engines.

Opposition Agent and Hullbreacher for control.

Tortured Existence and Graf Harvest make an incredible synergy.

Mindslicer and Living Death are a must.

Price of Fame works well with its surveil ability (you can discard creatures in graveyard and use them with your cmd), plus is an excellent removal.

Hey, Skullclamp is one of the better repeatable die effects with Teysa since drawing 4 cards each time you equip to a creature for 1 mana is very good value. Skullclamp could replace Wayfarer's Bauble. The maybeboard is packed full of good cards that could be upgrades and there's several budget cards there to consider adding.

These cards could replace:

Other good budget cards with Teysa: Dark Prophecy, Midnight Reaper, Dreadhorde Invasion, Victimize, Ministrant of Obligation, Marauding Blight-Priest, Path of Ancestry, Witch's Cottage, Esper Panorama, Ash Barrens.

Good luck with your deck.

Cmi1103 on Life After Death, and Death After Life - Marchesa

Hey! Sultai_Sir Thanks for the upvote and the feedback!

Clever Impersonator - I can't think of why I didn't include that in this deck, maybe because of the 4 cmc slot always going to Marchesa to get her out first? Anywho, I definitely think that needs some reconsideration in here.

I think I'll have to give Midnight Reaper a go. My first impression was that it was too much life loss, but no doubt it's a great card draw engine in here.

Marton Stromgald seems interesting, I like the comparison to Craterhoof, and I think it would certainly be a great way to finish off opponents quicker(Aggro seems to be a pretty consistent win con for me anyways), especially if the board keeps getting wiped and there are no blockers for our undead army.

As far as formatting the page for a different background, a great place to get started would be here! Deckstyling with Ease

Hey man, love the deck! Here's a couple of suggestions:

  • Midnight Reaper: It's already been suggested, but this card is balls to the walls amazing. It draws you cards and keeps your opponents on the throne!

Hey, would you mind showing me the code to give your deck the cool background? Thanks!
