Rooftop Storm Discussion

"Replaced Merciless Eviction with Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant Reason: The instant speed removal potential of Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant and the several sacrifice outlets in the deck, plus being free with Rooftop Storm , makes this a better include. While the deck can recover from having it's perminants exiled, it isn't something I'm overly keen on rebuilding through.

Replaced Animate Dead with Necromancy Reason: Necromancy lets me return and sacrifice Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant during my oppponents' turns, which is awesome. It also gives Nev more flexibility at creating tapped 2/2 zombies following any of their own board wipes.

Replaced Liliana's Standard Bearer with Rhystic Study Reason: Liliana's Standard Bearer is just too situational. I've kept it in my sideboard to help depower the deck depending on the playgroup. I really like it and it does work well with Haakon.

Replaced Gilded Lotus with Ancient Tomb Reason: Having the fast land is better than a 5CMC artifact.

Replaced Mystical Tutor with Leyline of Anticipation Reason: There are too few instant and sorceries for me to be able to justify this. I've found that having the ability to generate infinite mana with Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar is much better. Or instant speed wraths with Damnation .

Replaced Scheming Symmetry with Intuition Reason: I wanted to reduce the number of tutor effects in the deck, though I've had a spare Intuition for some time and really wanted to find a home for it. It seems to work really well, especially with Sevinne's Reclamation

Replaced Silence with Trickbind Reason: Silence was there to help me secure the win if I need to go through the Dream Halls but the majority of the time, if I've managed to get down Notion Thief first and wheel, then it does the same effect. Trickbind does also give me protection against planeswalker abilities and most graveyard exile effects.

Replaced Dramatic Reversal with Mind Over Matter Reason: I had looked to play online, with one discord channel advising that I would need to remove the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo, as it would be too strong. They also told me to remove Mana Crypt , though this is partly a deck designed to use some of my more expensive cards and make Varina as optimized as possible while still keeping the zombie theme. Adding in Mind Over Matter was a lucky find. In order for the infinite loop, I need to discard my deck to my graveyard. I enjoy the 4 blue mana cost, as it's harder to reach that devotion. Thankfully, with the treasure tokens from Smothering Tithe and Replenish to cheat it back into play.

Replaced Isochron Scepter with Emergency Powers Reason: Removing the Scepter makes sense as it's not required for the infinite loop anymore. But I've found that adding a 3rd Timetwister effect means a higher chance of drawing into one following a previous instance, like Echo of Eons + Time Spiral . These work really nicely with Narset's Reversal and God-Eternal Kefnet , as both bypass the exile clause on a lot of these cards - in addition to Teferi's Protection . Being instant speed also gives me a layer of protection against graveyard exile effects."

With only 3 mana rocks 35 lands is about where you need to be. Mortician Beetle could go.

I just noticed you aren't playing Rooftop Storm or Living Death . Rooftop Storm goes infinite with zombie/sac ability nonsense.

Nice list. I am partial to zombie tribal and I have been brewing a list for Narfi since he was spoiled. Any thoughts on Rooftop Storm , I know it is a bit high on the mana side but cost zombies more then makes up for it.

kpres thank you a lot! Rooftop Storm , Havengul Lich and Tormod, the Desecrator are all on my eyes. I think i need more play testing with this deck to get the feeling what i can change.

I did not think about Eternalize. That is something i need to keep an eye on.

Also i am still not sure if i am happy with how many effect i have for self mill and mill in general, since i feel that Altar of the Brood and Altar of Dementia could be allstars in this deck.

Wow, very cool deck!

For zombies in blue, I would suggest Rooftop Storm and Havengul Lich , but that's all I can think of right now.

Also there are a few dudes with Eternalize that have abilities that scale with their power. Any other 1/1 that gets better when it's bigger would work. Champion of Wits , Thought Sponge , Flesh Carver , Mausoleum Wanderer , Old Man of the Sea .

Also there's this guy that you can exile from your graveyard with the Eternalize ability, and then re-cast from exile. Eternal Scourge
