At the beginning of your draw step, draw an additional card.

Spells you cast cost less to cast.

Creatures you control get +1/+1.

Hey, well done so far, but I think you overestimate needing so many buffs (anthems).

All the artifacts for anthem effects is overkill, you have tutors that can get the better anthem. Adding more repeatable draw sources can do more for gameplay than anthems because more reliable draw helps to draw the better anthems. Coat of Arms, Eldrazi Monument and The Immortal Sun are much better than the other artifact anthems here.

In my opinion anthem effects to be worth playing need to also have card quality for the mana cost. Instruments of War and Hall of Triumph are bad cards, only providing a small anthem effect nothing else for their mana cost isn't good enough to take deck spots. Obelisk of Urd is subpar, but at least it can be mana cost reduced even to 0 with Zombies. Bad Moon is only 2 mana, but there's greater two drops that have much better card quality. Heraldic Banner can be a mana rock, but even so you can do better for a three drop.

Adaptive Automaton is a creature who Gisa can sac and who can be a Zombie lord (anthem), but it's a bad card compared to all other Zombie lords who provide another good repeatable effect. Icon of Ancestry and Vanquisher's Banner aren't worth it since there's too many nonZombie creatures here. You can get more reliable repeatable draw from other sources.

You have Crypt Ghast, Cabal Coffers and tutors to get them, you don't need Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power mana effects. These cards are better in mono white, red or blue because these colors can really use the mana ramp. Liliana's Mastery is a very low budget five drop for Zombies, not needed here.


There's several cards in the maybeboard to consider adding main deck if you have them. Areas to focus on improving with cards from the maybeboard are early game ramp, repeatable draw for only you, reanimation and more Zombie evasion.

Other cards to consider adding from the maybeboard.

Some cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

DemonDragonJ on How Good is the Immortal …

2 months ago

I have a copy of The Immortal Sun in many of my EDH decks, because of its overall value, but I recently have been wondering if it is truly a good card for every deck, since it costs 6 mana to cast and may not provide an immediate benefit, so I have already remvoed it from several of my decks.

What does everyone else say about this? How good is The Immortal Sun in EDH?

DemonDragonJ on Kill them With Kindness

I have replaced The Immortal Sun with Sphinx of Enlightenment, which somehow increased this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.44 to 3.50, but the sun did not match with the theme of this deck, whereas the sphinx most certainly does.

DemonDragonJ on The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Raze

I have reinstated Phyrexian Tyranny in this deck, replacing The Immortal Sun, which inexplicably increased deck's converted mana cost from 3.62 to 3.63, this since the sun did not truly fit the theme of this deck, and I again have another red permanent that shall synergize with Kederekt Parasite.

DemonDragonJ on Don't Blink, or You'll Miss It!

I have replaced Crystal Ball and The Immortal Sun with Inspiring Overseer and Loran of the Third Path, which, for some reason, increased this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.41 to 3.42, but I still am glad that I did that, since The Immortal Sun does not suit the theme of this deck, and Augury Owl is better than Crystal Ball in this deck.

Been meaning to build Niambi all year but I keep getting distracted by other commanders. I really like your take on Azorius reanimator. Death or Glory is a pet card of mine and it really shines in this build. I also like how you snuck in the legendary sorceries to feed to Niambi. However, I'm confused by the lack of legendary artifacts!

Helm of the Host seems prime for abuse in this list.

Mox Amber suddenly pricey but very appropriate in this list.

Sword of the Animist ramp value. Cut Burnished Hart

The Immortal Sun your list is low on planeswalkers so this is powerful value.

Umezawa's Jitte swiss army knife.

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds an island that you can feed to Niambi in the late game.

Academy Ruins low on artifacts but worth it.

Hall of Heliod's Generosity really low on enchantments but probably worth it.

Conjurer's Closet/Teleportation Circle the etb effects in this list are worth recycling over and over.
