Sidisi, Undead Vizier Discussion

TheVectornaut on my attemp at a deck..

3 weeks ago

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

Cool deck!!!
If you want to focus on etb then maybe you are right about trying yarok.
However abzan recursion can be a blast and you have a cool commander pair picked out.
I really like creatures that can be their own sac outlets so they can perpetualy generate value when you recur them, like with ramos or Phyrexian Reclamation .
Some of these creatures are Sakura-Tribe Elder , Caustic Caterpillar , Yavimaya Elder , Restoration Specialist , and Sidisi, Undead Vizier , for example.
Then your deck is less likely get hosed when your opponent plays Torpor Orb or Hushwing Gryff . Anyway, just something to think about.

TheVectornaut on Mono black sacrifice control deck

I hear that. I was lucky enough to pick up a Razaketh for my Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest deck for only about $5 before it spiked. Even his "cheaper alternative", Sidisi, Undead Vizier is expensive. As for the enchantments, I need copies in multiple decks and have been waiting for Wizards to meaningfully reprint one or both of them for years to no avail. If the effect does sound like something you'd enjoy, Butcher of Malakir can serve nearly the same role on a budget, assuming you can get him into play quickly enough.

Here's a list of some of my decks that involve reanimator and sacrifice, by the way. I really enjoy playing around the graveyard and end up building around these mechanics frequently. They're all casual decks, but they're mostly budget too so maybe they could be a useful reference. Anyway, good luck with your build!

Use Sidisi, Undead Vizier in the command zone to make sure you can easily find her

If you want to go Jund, I feel like Korvold, Fae-Cursed King propably is the best choice for it. Traximundar seems fitting for the Grixis build, but you could also try playing mono-B with Sidisi, Undead Vizier . And in case you'd like a Grave Pact in the command zone, how about savra golgari queen?

Pheardemons on Rainbow in the Dark: Haakon Reanimator Combo

2 months ago

Hello again FenIsABasicSwamp. Not sure if you remember me, but I was the one that was building a Haakon deck around the same time you were (a little after). I also had a GoT theme but went more discard. I've been out of the magic scene for a bit but I was coming back to check out your deck because I am trying to revamp my version. I am still amazed at this deck as it truly does everything that I love in Magic. If I could upvote this twice I definitely would. I have some questions for you if that's alright.

1) Why Wasteland over Strip Mine? Why not both?

2) How relevant has Emergence Zone been?

3) Why fetches in a mono-colored deck? I understand filtering, but you only play two and it seems you have a lot of draw.

4) Has K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth earned his place? Also, how do you supplement the lifeloss? I see some lifelink (and he has it as well) but have you ever needed to worry about the life lost from using him? Do you try to win before this is a problem?

5) Is Abhorrent Overlord's ETB make him more attractive than something like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder or Ghoulcaller Gisa? How badly do you need tokens for fodder?

6) Is Bitterblossom not worthwhile for the Contamination combo? If not, how come? I see Winter Orb in the sideboard so it seems like you may want to lockdown in some cases to ensure the deck gets to the mid-to-late game.

7) I know that Sidisi, Undead Vizier can be a repeatable tutor, but how come you don't play more tutors like Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal or even Increasing Ambition? (Unless money is a factor)? Also, why no Razaketh, the Foulblooded? Especially with the token generation factor.

8) Has Ghirapur Orrery ever backfired and helped an opponent(s) more than it has helped you? Same question for Lifeline and Tombstone Stairwell.

9) Null Profusion is a card I've always meant to try, but the limit of two cards has always deterred me. How has it played for you? Staple? Needed? Just okay?

10) I'm SURE I'm missing something with Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, but he seems "off" to me in your list. You have enough draw to not worry about losing life and sacking a creature that can be sacked to other things. What does he bring to this kind of build?

11) Is the dredge from Stinkweed Imp needed? Do you constantly dredge whenever you can or is there a time and place?

12) What are the cards you mainly go for when you transmute Fleshwrither? Is it not easier to replace this with Grim Tutor? Does the fact that he's a creature make him more appealing?

13) Have you ever named zombies with Conspiracy for Cryptbreaker? Do you just use his ability to get you zombies? Is his draw worthwhile even if it seems slow for a non-zombie dedicated deck?

14) Has Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger's cast trigger been enough non-creature removal? I saw the comment about Feed the Swarm so I won't suggest it, but what about Oblivion Stone, All Is Dust, and even Scour from Existence? If they're not needed, how come?

I read your Bio. I understand that your specifically chose not to use some of the cards and combos I've listed here. I hope that my questions come across as curiosity, not "you should do this and do that."

I know I've asked a lot of questions in this on comment, but if you could do me one more thing. Since you like underrated themes and/or commanders would you be willing to take a look at my Rakdos the Defiler deck? He is one I built early in my Magic career, purely for a theme, and without a template. He has become a powerful deck since and I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Horror, Carnage, and Annihilation. All are Rakdos..

DriftingEpyon on Obeka of the Infinite [PRIMER]

4 months ago

SMELY_ZAJKO Great questions, and I'm stoked you want to this as your first EDH deck!

From my experience playtesting this with others, this deck is great at lying low for the majority of the game until you are ready swoop in, swing hard, and win the game. Since we are using some cards with "lose the game" effects, you need to be really careful and be smart with Obeka, Brute Chronologist; attacking with her or activating her ability at the wrong time can easily lose you the game.

If you want to go with more of a reanimator/big monsters, Obeka becomes less of a danger to yourself and more of a political tool when the combo pieces are removed; her role in the deck transitions to being primarily as a value engine and political piece. Never underestimate her political power through offering an opponent protection from removal, a board wipe, etc. Also, Araumi of the Dead Tide will then become an absolute all star in this deck!

You thankfully don't need to completely reconstruct this deck to have it focus on reanimator. I would remove all the cards listed under the Combo header except for Sneak Attack, Windfall, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Cabal Coffers. This would remove seven cards from the deck, so we have seven slots to fill in with reanimator cards. I would suggest adding Stitcher's Supplier and Corpse Connoisseur to help get cards into your graveyard. Glen Elendra Archmage for more protection. Then finally, Sepulchral Primordial, Torrential Gearhulk, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Diluvian Primordial for big splashy creatures to reanimate.

If you have a larger budget, you can upgrade your big creatures to Wurmcoil Engine, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, It That Betrays, or creatures of the like. Honestly, I would just choose your favorite big creatures and jam those. I hope this helps!
