hey! it's me again, have you seen Witch's Cottage from ELD? i think it's good with Twisted Abomination , though i'm not sure if the number of our swamp will suffice to have a good chance for witch's cottage to get down untapped. what do you think? is it worth it?

After playtesting a bit more, I really like how the Altar of Dementia and Embalmer's Tools work together with these temporary zombies from the Tombstone Stairwell . But I still consider the Barren Moor a dead card because it comes in tapped so you get no immediate benefit and when you cycle it, you don't get a creature in the grave. I would definitely say -4 Barren Moor , +2 Swamp , +4 Twisted Abomination , -2 Something.

I like the milling aspect. But have you considered Twisted Abomination instead of the Barren Moor ?

First off I wanna say nice kewl deck, I like it. I saw you mentioned mana being tight and I run a small combo to make some mana with my Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip deck that might help, although it involves many cards you would need to add. Liliana of the Dark Realms gets you a Swamp every turn, Lake of the Dead , tap said Swamp and Lake of the Dead and get 5x each turn. With this combo you'd wanna also be running Crucible of Worlds in case Liliana of the Dark Realms gets blown-up. And you already run Expedition Map. Also Twisted Abomination is good for Swampcycling and getting a Swamp in hand. Also because you can destroy opponents creatures pretty well Sangromancer might be a worthy addition. And you some discard effect's for your opponents so Geth's Grimoire might be a worthy addition just a thought but you really don't need as Yawg and Vilis add more than enough card draw. Anyways best regards and GL TheAnswerer

Very impressive first deck, you have lots of powerful toys here. But I think I may be of some assistance in helping you make it even stronger.

Since your deck is only at $189.9 I'm going to make the assumption you have a bit of a budget so I'll try and keep my suggestions fairly cheap.

Right away I notice you have most of the pieces for game ending combo's already in your deck. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion and similarly Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion + Necrotic Ooze + Buried Alive make game ending combo's that are super reliable. With the Mikaeus + Triskelion combo, all you need to do is let the triskelion shoot a opponent twice while Mikaeus is on the field then kill itself with its last counter. The Triskelion will then come back onto the field due to Mikaeus, repeat this process an infinite amount of times and the game is all yours. Similarly, if you cast Buried Alive to put Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer into the graveyard while a Necrotic Ooze is on the field you can use the phyrexian devourer ability to mill your entire deck while the Triskelion ability pings all your opponents to death.

And if you do decide to run that combo, I'd also recommend running Walking Ballista for added redundancy.

In more general deck building terms I think there are also a few upgrades you could easily do.

Mana Ramp is super important in EDH. Games are often won and lost based off of who ramped hardest. So with that in Mind I HIGHLY recommend adding more mana rocks to your deck. As a rule of thumb I'd like to say that 10ish mana rocks are best for your average deck. So since you have five I'd say aim for at least four more. Some decent ones you may want to consider would be:

I also think that some of your choices for zombies could be a little stronger for EDH

What I would cut and why:

  • Wight of Precinct Six This card seems like it would be good in EDH with there being six different graveyards, But unless you were to run a heavier mill package this card only ends up being a slightly larger than average beater that doesnt even have trample
  • Gempalm Polluter This is a very good card in 1v1 games, but if you are playing three other players then just targeting a single player isn't worth much
  • Vindictive Lich This is honestly a fine card, I just think that since you aren't abusing his death triggers that this spot might be better spent on a different zombie
  • Twisted Abomination I just dont like this card very much

What you may want to consider adding:

And I personally like running at least two or three counterspells when I play in blue. Counterspell and Swan Song are probably the best if you're not looking to spend tons of money but there are tons to choose from.

And finally I think I would be doing you a great disservice if I didn't suggest you consider Cyclonic Rift.This card is absolutely bonkers in EDH and probably the single best blue spell in the game for EDH.

Sorry if it seems like I'm insulting your deck building capabilities. You really do have a pretty good core to work with here but as with any deck there were a few places I felt could be improved upon. But when it comes right down to it these are just my opinions and there are no hard rules for what makes a deck good or fun.

Hope all this helps!
