SenSpooky on To Drown the World in Death: Araumi EDH [PRIMER]

1 week ago

Modern Horizons 2 has some pretty phenomenal stuff for this deck! I'm keen to get hold of a heap of them for testing. I'll list off a few staples I think are worth considering.

Unmarked Grave : I can see you've already had a gander at this one given it shows up in the maybeboard. It's no Entomb, but two mana is still pretty damn efficient, given it can also get Wake the Dead or other combo pieces. Vile Entomber is another one of these cards, but one that I think is better than Oriq Loremage . Having to wait a turn feels bad. Of both of these, I'd much rather play the Entomber.

Persist : Reanimate at home, but I'm so glad to see a card that will probably replace Dance of the Dead . I dislike that card with a passion. The -1/-1 counter is a pretty low cost given most of our important stuff survives it, but it does turn a Stitcher's Supplier in the bin into a mill 6 for 2.

Dihada's Ploy : This is a decent filtering spell that I think is good because you can just repeat it as many times as you have mana available, and it's an instant. This looks much nicer that Deep Analysis .

Diamond Lion : Probably a good one if you're intending on going full combo. Getting three of these off Araumi of the Dead Tide and then getting 9 mana seems decent, along with getting rid of stuff it your hand you'd rather in your graveyard. I probably won't play it though, since it feels very all-in.

Magus of the Bridge : More combo! Multiples of these can give you some gangbusters tokens that you can further sacrifice/attack with. BBB is a bit rough, but imagine all the Undead Augur shenanigans.

Urza's Saga : I don't have to explain this one.

No matter what, I think not having 4x Undead Augur in the main is just shooting yourself in the foot, it just gives soooo much value. At first I was afraid of losing a lot of life, but I’ve come to see it’s a small price to pay for drawing a card. Also, I’ve loved Cryptbreaker ever since I knew it was a card, but when I want to discard a card, I don’t have infinite Gravecrawler s. And the card is extremely slow.

You do raise a valid point, lagotripha. For consistency’s sake I don’t intend to splash any other colors; I’d run into a similar problem if I didn’t have the Vial/Pyre in play and drew an off color creature. But I can definitely see value in, say, Cryptbreaker or Undead Augur as you had suggested.

I’ll have to weigh carefully what to replace. Either that, or incorporate your ideas into a new variation of this deck. Thanks for the input!

I feel like leaning far harder into 1 and 2 drops would make the pyre/Vial/Crawler setup a lot stronger. Just 'fetch a zombie from your deck each turn' is pretty strong.

Undead Augur Draws cards, likes sacrifice, on type&theme, cmc right for gravecrawler.

Cryptbreaker ditto, but also a 1 drop.

Worth considering;

Black Cat / Miasmic Mummy / Rotting Rats Forces a discard and sets up for a 'go to 3 mana' turn. Amazing for getting grindy.

Dreadhorde Arcanist strongest zombie and recurring thoughtsieze is good- plays into a spells matter theme with Unearth

Corpse Knight / Wayward Servant for gravecrawler drain if the deck shifts towards W/B, with vial/pyre easing the splash.

Tidehollow Sculler Hand disruption is goood

I'm building a similar deck with Demon of Catastrophes and Feaster of Fools (which you might consider--with Devour 2 it can get big, and with Convoke it can come out as early as turn 3).

Fetid Imp seems weak here. Your demons will dominate the sky, so you might consider more sacrificial creatures like Festering Mummy or Undead Augur .

All that said, I'm putting Tragic Slip in my deck. It's definitely > the Dismember I'm running.

+1!

Idk who this Willy is, but no you.

This deck is a really a mono black build that you happen to run blue for Diregraf Captain . The way I see it you can either keep with the build you're going for, which to me seems like mono black, or you can go a much different dimir amass path with cards like Vizier of the Scorpion , Gleaming Overseer , Lazotep Plating ,

Let's assume you do mono black, then let's start with creatures. Brain Gorgers and Stromgald Crusader are garbage, Tomebound Lich is mostly used in dedicated reanimator decks, and Extremely Slow Zombie is a card from a joke set, so take those all out, along with Diregraf Captain . That's 11 out. Add 2 Murderous Rider , 3 Liliana's Reaver , 2 Undead Augur , 3 Diregraf Ghoul .

For noncreature spells, take out Negate . The best mono black removal is probably Walk the Plank . So take out Go for the Throat and Ultimate Price for 3. Gravepurge and Return from Extinction can be replaced with 3 Call of the Death-Dweller . Take out Bontu's Monument for another copy of Liliana, Untouched By Death or vise-versa. Take out Necromancer's Stockpile , I just don't think it's that good. For a five drop $1-2 slot, Open the Graves is better than Call to the Grave .

If you followed all that you should have 6 slots left. Add one more Swamp so you're at 22. Then maybe 3 Dread Wanderer , 2 Fleshbag Marauder , and flex card like Risen Executioner or something fun.

I would love to see an updated version of this deck. Some recent cards I have personally found to be amazing are: Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Undead Augur , Dreadhorde Invasion , Murderous Rider , Bolas's Citadel and Nyx Lotus .

I've decided to make more than one list but each one should be helpful to you in the future. Also, you don't need to put in all these cards. There are too many here for you to fit in the deck.

Liliana cards:

Liliana, Death's Majesty (can be a board wipe but don't count on it), Liliana, Dreadhorde General (also doubles as amazing card draw), Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, Liliana, the Last Hope, and Liliana, Untouched By Death (has a removal ability).

Zombie tribal cards:

Shepherd of Rot, Lord of the Accursed, Risen Executioner, Relentless Dead, Field of the Dead, Undead Augur (also card advantage), Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gleaming Overseer, Call to the Grave (rude card), Endless Ranks of the Dead (my favorite zombie tribal card), Graf Harvest, Graveborn Muse (also card advantage), and Josu Vess, Lich Knight.

Never/Return is zombie themed removal.

Necromantic Selection is a zombie themed board wipe.

Ramp cards:

Dimir Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Charcoal Diamond, Sky Diamond, and Fellwar Stone.

I hope this helps!
