Underrealm Lich Discussion

Juuluk on Deathkeeper, shaman spellcaster- looking for …

5 days ago

Thanks for the suggestion MagicMarc I'll do that. I saw that the rats and dwarves wouldn't work with succession. That's too bad about the thrumming stone, but I see what you're saying. I thought about using it with mortuary and something like Plaguecrafter, but I don't know if that would work either now.

Could I also get your opinion on the Finale of Promise and Shaman's Trance combination? I decided that I really can't deny the flavor of th trance, even though it's hot garbage. I don't want to only be using it as an interrupt though, or having to rely on my opponent having flashback or escape cards i can play that turn, that's why I made that jank. It's not optimal, but it's basically throwing cards into my grave with an Underrealm Lich or cycling a Decree of Pain, then just making things explode. I thought it would be cool if it worked with Sins of the Past too, but I feel like I should bring that to a rules board.

Hello casual_competitive, while Underrealm Lich is indeed problematic, the deck does have quite a few ways to deal with it, along any other problematic permanents that my opponents may have on the field.

Having said that, this deck is about having fun, I don't mind not winning as long as I get to do my thing and that thing is drawing cards. Getting to see two thirds of your deck each game is quite enjoyable even for your opponents (as few have expressed after a game or two)

Omniscience_is_life on Keeping track of the stack

1 month ago

We all know tracking the stack and even just individual triggers can be a difficult thing in the 4-player format that is EDH, so what do you all do to remember everything/not miss anything? I know a few basic things like putting your Underrealm Lich on top of your library to remember its replacement effect, but are there any more advanced devices you use to stay on top of things?

SatisfactionDay on Go ahead, draw a card

casual_competitive oh I know I wouldn't be able to in terms mill him to kill him, but if he has Underrealm Lich on the field, I only need to make him draw around 30 cards and get his library small or non-existent, then answer his creature. Yes, he may have tons of answers in his hand, most of which I'll make them draw. And I have answers to their answers. Everything in commander is situational and I could likely find an answer to deal with it. Or even deal with it while it is on the stack. And who knows, my other opponents might deal with the creature too. Again, I am not worried because my play group doesn't play this card. But for others that may want to play the deck, adjust around it? This list is based on my own meta, if I played against someone outside of my meta and they played things unexpectedly, well tough luck I guess, same would go for any deck. But this is a good thing to think about. I generally only think about answering general staples and cards and play styles in my own meta. I do not often play commander at my LGS, but this could be helpful in anticipating the unexpected. So thank you!
