Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Discussion

Grubbernaut: I'm looking for a 75% deck, preferably on a budget. I'll look at EDHrec right away!

Nice deck! If you're getting good results from Haunted Dead you'll probably also like Stitchwing Skaab ; it might even be slightly better since you get a 3-power flyer to go over the top while Prized Amalgam clogs up the ground. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant could also be nice as both a big threat and a way to keep your dredge engine going.

MagicWizard1993 hopefully in answering your question I can encourage other users to respond as well, although I'm not sure it's much of an answer at all. If you happened to look through all three pages of my profile decks, which at this point are limited entirely to commander due to dismantling all of my legacy and modern decks, everything except for the Simic Politics deck (currently under construction looking to abuse infinite ETBs of Mystic Sanctuary with an extra turn spell for infinite turns) and the Arcum Dagsson deck, which has been modifed to an Urza, Lord High Artificer deck (currently shown as Emry but will be updated next week) are completed based on the decklists noted. Page 3 of my deck lists are all sold or dismantled except for Animar, which is still ready to play, so a total of 19 decks at this point, which is a lot to choose from obviously.
As for your question, which is my favorite? Honestly, it depends on the day and the pod I'm playing in, but since the very early days of unlimited and revised in 1993-1994, I've heavily favored in that order, so Sultai always calls to me above all else. Reanimator has always been my favorite playstyle as well, so my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck is probably my first love, but my Urza and Kess decks are both more viable in a cEDH setting. That said, due to my job and family, I rarely get the opportunity to play live games unless I specifically make time, even before COVID hit, so I collect cards and build decks regularly, but intentionally build many of my other decks as glass-cannon variations of competitive to end games quickly without stalling opponents with a lot of interaction. Prior to COVID, I played about once a month at my LGS, trying to get at least 10 games in on each of those occasions - in a 6-8 hour session. I haven't played since April at this point though.
Due to the lack of regular play, I'm admittedly an average pilot of my decks, which is another reason why I limit the number of truly cEDH builds I have, as in those serious pods I need to know exactly what I intend my deck to do against whatever my opponents throw my direction. Kess and Urza make that relatively easy to remember, as those game plans are fairly straightforward and usually end with Thassa's Oracle.
Hopefully this helps provide a little more color, if that's what you were looking for, and to confirm your last comment, the deck will be sleeved in grim reaper themed sleeves, which I hope is more of a portent for the new deck owner's opponents. Best of luck and thanks for your response...happy new year.

I have a guide/repository for card-draw cards if you want to peruse it. You may find some cards with more synergies that you like. Weight of Memory can be decent for self-mill strategies, etc. EDH Card-Draw Master List
As for cuts... let's see...
I don't love Forgotten Creation, personally. I always felt like I had non-creatures I wanted to keep in my hand all the time. Your deck is a bit more creature-heavy than mine, so perhaps it's pulling its weight.
You have the necessary components for Gravecrawler combos, but not a ton of tutors to make them reliable to get out. As such, perhaps one of the weaker payoffs for that can go, such as Vengeful Dead or Plague Belcher. If you're using Buried Alive to find the pieces then you'll only ever need one, and Diregraf Captain is an excellent choice. That said, your deck is fairly token-heavy so perhaps the incidental groupslug is being underappreciated by me.
Personally I think Endless Ranks of the Dead is a bit of a trap unless you're all-in on the token strategy, such as a Ghoulcaller Gisa or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant zombie deck. Very fun, but a bit win-more unless you can really make it pop off. I've never been satisfied with it's performance in my deck, but you're going wider than I do so perhaps it's fine. Something to think about though.
It all kind of depends on how much you're self-milling. You have a decent amount, but you aren't exactly going all-in. As such, Grimoire of the Dead may be a liability. I have played around with that card in some of my decks and it just seems to get removed before it works. When it did I usually won the game, though. It's fun, but unreliable. Rise of the Dark Realms is obviously more reliable but it's very pricey.
I never found the self-mill in my deck as useful as regular card-draw. There's not a ton of point to have 15 zombies in the graveyard if you only want to cast one or two of them over and over. There are payoffs, of course, but to me it feels like being in the middle-ground is way worse than being all-in or having minimal self-mill. I just hate milling over answers or Rooftop Storm!
I don't think you're running enough to make Nightscape Familiar worth it.
Honestly, I don't love Havengul Lich a ton. The color restriction makes it hard to use and you have lots of ways to bring out your own zombies already. He's better in a more mill-your-opponents strategy IMO.
Tymaret Calls the Dead is a bit of a weaker card. Exiling your own zombies is a bit of a non-bo (unless your self-mill strategy is really rolling). The lifegain can be nice but I'd rather run Whip of Erebos if that's the goal, or a better card-draw card if that's the goal.

Mythos of Brokkos seems like a good tutor with Muldrotha and have some recursion if you can't have your commander.
Kaya's Ghostform is a great protection for Muldrotha.
Syr Konrad, the Grim can do a shitload of damage I think with self mill.
Acidic Slime is just great!

Hi, CivilizedSin! Sultai_Sir here. I was wondeing if you could help me out with my version of Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. She, too was my first actual deck in Commander, and I've been trying to refine it. Here's the link: The Deck that Death Forgot. Thanks!
