Ratadrabik of Urborg

Legendary Creature — Zombie Wizard

Vigilance, ward (Whenever this creature becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, counter it unless that player pays )

Other Zombies you control have vigilance.

Whenever another legendary creature you control dies, create a token that's a copy of that creature, except it's not legendary and it's a 2/2 black Zombie in addition to its other colours and types.

bhst5019 on Stopping combo of Ratadrabik of …

While this is a question about these cards, its about stacks operation. So a friend has [Boromir, Warden of the Tower] and Ratadrabik of Urborg. He sacrifices Boromir, Warden of the Tower to use the creature's ability. This causes Ratadrabik of Urborg to create a non-legendary token of it. He then targets the ring tempt to the newly formed token thus making it legendary and can perform the sacrifice again. So my question lies here. Can I destroy the token before the ring attempt is made on it? Or does it need to be exiled.?

My thought it I can destroy the token without it becoming legendary. Other person did think it was true and I could only target it after both abilities had resolved.

Deck Updates

These are changes based on game testing and new cards I think will improve the deck significantly. My goals are to increase the synergy but also the flow of the deck.

Cards I took out: - Athreos, God of Passage / I prefer creatures in the graveyard - Liesa, Forgotten Archangel / I prefer creatures in the graveyard - Syr Konrad, the Grim / Doesn't trigger enough for my taste - Wrath of God / I've noticed that board whipping is less effective than I thought in this deck and out of both Damnation Will be easier to cast with our mana production - Dictate of Erebos / As good as this card is Grave Pact does it for less. Additionally, I have never used its flash ability

Cards I put in: - Archaeomancer's Map / Better ramp - Blade of Selves / Myriad is crazy in this deck and can lead to quick victories or even infinite combos (which usually lead to victory) - Mondrak, Glory Dominus / This card is WAY TOO GOOD in this deck. It double tokens! It's a sacrifice outlet that makes it indestructible!! Also it combos infinitely with Blade of Selves and Ratadrabik of Urborg - Boromir, Warden of the Tower / This card alone is really good but it combos infinitely with Ratadrabik of Urborg and can be a powerful combo with cards like Grave Pact and Proper Burial - Gandalf the White / Double death triggers means double tokens with Ratadrabik of Urborg or quick wins with cards like Kokusho, the Evening Star

Things to change in the Future - Currently trying to fit "Samwise the Southearted" and "The Golden Throne" into the deck for a few additional mana combos / stabilize the mana production. - I might try to fit in "Dictate of Erebos" if possible...

SteelSentry on (Mid-power playgroups) Do you value …

I was looking at a deck to put Nazgul in, and I'm currently deciding between Ratadrabik of Urborg and Araumi of the Dead Tide; the former directly comboing with them, and the latter being a combo deck that is happy to play them, as encoring a Nazgul is a powerful play that can drastically swing life totals. The main decision factor between the two is a conundrum I've ran into before; Ratadrabik is overall a more consistent combo: besides the commander, you just need a creature that ring tempts on ETB or LTB, and a payoff. The problem with this deck is it is vulnerable to being run over by the infect and aggro decks at my LGS. The combos with Araumi are more complicated and limited in pieces (ex. Mesmeric Orb, an untapper to encore, and a bucket of mana), but can fight more easily on a value front with plays like Gray Merchant of Asphodel, as well as access to blue to fight other combos on the stack.

I can grasp deckbuilding for a combo deck in cEDH, but what should I keep in mind building a deck that has a combo win as plan A in a diverse, non-cEDH meta?

Crow_Umbra on Alesha and her Nazgul

Glad to see a new twist on Alesha. She was one of my first favorite commanders before I repurposed her deck into Isshin.

In reading your deck's description, I will caution against having Alesha be your primary reanimator effect. I think she works as best as an additional reanimator option, but not the one the deck relies on to function.

As a back up plan, I'd say check out Echoing Return as a way to get some Nazgul back to your hand, although back to battlefield would be most ideal. If it's in your budget, I'd also recommend checking out Preston, the Vanisher as an option to get some token copies of creatures you reanimate.

You could also potentially do some combo loops with Nazgul + Ratadrabik of Urborg + a sac outlet like Altar of Dementia. As long as the Nazgul is your Ring-Bearer when the Ring Tempts You, you can then sac it, and Ratadrabik will create token copies, which will let you start the cycle all over again.

Crow_Umbra on My first EDH deck

Nice first deck! I'd recommend checking out Ratadrabik of Urborg and Hofri Ghostforge as some additional means to recycle your Legends. I think Ratadrabik could fit right in, since about 22 of your 28 creatures are Legends.

I think I may have Zo-Zu the Punisher and possibly maybe able to trade WhiskeyRenegade for a Ratadrabik of Urborg
