Rise of the Dread Marn Discussion

GrixCHIM on Ayara Rat Plague EDH

I see your deck is budget, and I wanted to suggest some budget inclusions for cards that would create tokens that also trigger Ayara's drain ability.

Chittering Witch creates RAT tokens!!

Abhorrent Overlord Generates a LOT of harpy tokens as your devotion to black will be large with Ayara in play.

Rise of the Dread Marn is a great way to refuel your board with black creatures after a board wipe or large death effect.

Lab Rats is a great way to slowly add more rats to the field with enough mana for the buyback price.

Josu Vess, Lich Knight can be brutal with Ayara on the battlefield if the kicker cost is paid.

Necrotic Hex can be a good board clearing effect that also makes black creatures.

Your deck could also use some cards to help find your enjoyed rat cards. Some budget options in black include Diabolic Tutor , Mausoleum Secrets , and Ratcatcher !

Some cards you're using aren't especially great in a singleton format. Cards like Compound Fracture and Hunt for Specimens could be replaced with Defile and Callous Bloodmage respectively.

Have fun playing EDH! The best suggestion is to play with others and learn what cards you like and dislike using and adapt with new cards that fit your budget.

Oh and perhaps Rise of the Dread Marn can swarm the field with zombies even more

Reliquarian Thanks for the suggestions! I think there is definitely a place for most of those cards in this deck. Especially Rise of the Dread Marn and Narfi, Betrayer King . I think I will try to find a place for Ashnod's Altar and Night's Whisper as well. Chromatic Lantern was added after a few of us started running Blood Moon so I think I'll keep it in there for now but I might swap Coalition Relic in for one of the other rocks that come in tapped.

Looks good! +1 upvote from me.

You could consider adding some of the new Kaldheim cards. There is a good amount of zombie tribal support in that set (like Rise of the Dread Marn & Narfi, Betrayer King for example).

Other card suggestions are Living Death , which could combo with your Scarab God (You can exile any good creatures in your opponent's graveyards and then Living Death to get all the good stuff on your board). Another good option could be Ashnod's Altar to use with all of the tokens you're making. Skirge Familiar can also get some of your reanimation targets like Jin and Sheoldred into your graveyard for the Scarab God to make tokens of. As for your mana rock package, I would consider adding in Coalition Relic since it is a great little mana rock that will do a lot more for you than some of the rocks you already have at 3 cmc like Chromatic Lantern . Finally I would consider adding Night's Whisper to go with your Sign in Blood . You could either replace the Sign in Blood with it or just run both depending.

Hopefully those suggestions are helpful. Happy brewing!

Solid deck! Any thought toward Rise of the Dread Marn ? Makes for a good recovery after sweepers, even your own sweeper! If nothing else I'd have it as a sideboard option, maybe. Lurrus is also a thought with the recursion, but he's not a zombie and not doing his best work in this deck. Archfiend's Vessel really feels like it belongs here despite not being a zombie. Milling that and bringing it back with any kind of recursion is just so strong.

I've found three-color to be consistent in Standard with the pathways, but you're in snow and only splashing green. I think the Fabled Passages are perfect for that and your mana base is pretty good as-is.

Daedalus19876 I also pulled a Burning-Rune Demon , but sadly it isn't full art or foil. I've kept it in my stash of maybe cards for Araumi. Anything you'd consider cutting to make room for it? Only Kaldheim cards I've slotted into Araumi so far are Saw It Coming and Mystic Reflection . I've been on the fence for Rise of the Dread Marn (have it in my Brokkos build), and Ravenform . My meta is more creature heavy, so Dread Marn could help me set up defensively post boardwipe.

Archon_Bel: I've found Rise of the Dread Marn to be pretty good. It's a good way to rebuild if someone board wipes, and I've killed people with it several times (they board wipe, I cast that, I swing back at them for 20 damage). And I'm already running Liliana's Standard Bearer TOO! Which has proved awesome.

Tyrite Sanctum ... Well, I haven't drawn it yet, so we'll see how it goes. I just adore the flavor, and it's decently good, sue me ;)

Honestly, I should be running Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in any slot which Draugr Necromancer would fit. So I'll try to fit in Kalitas first, then look back.

Thank you for the thoughts!

OttoFred: I apologize, I don't quite understand. How does Zombie Infestation help with undying combos? Infestation can be cute with Yawgmoth out ("Discard 2 cards, pay a life and draw a new card") but doesn't really serve the combo lines.

seshiro_of_the_orochi Sorry took me so long to reply. Thank you for the congratulations, it was a long and annoying process. Ask for Rise of the Dread Marn , I really like it. I want to get a copy for my zombie deck. It's a great card to use after a board wipe. I wouldn't run it in this deck per say.
