Quote from Outcryqq »I've been using Underrealm Lich to great success lately in a Gitrog list, and I see no reason why it wouldn't rock here too. You get to fill your yard with each draw, which I think makes your commander end the game faster, and your commander's sac outlet really just shines in connection with the lich.
Edit: Just saw your concern about life loss. Maybe Whip of Erebos could help? A lot of your creatures have ETB effects, so I think whipping them back for another go-around would be great. I suppose it's a non-bo with your commander's ETB (ends up exiling your dudes), but that's pretty easy to play around.
Yeah, Lich seems like a solid addition but on the other hand it doesn't do much without Izoni or any other solid draw engine. When adding a card I have to ask myself a question - will there be a scenario when I search for this with Demonic/Vampiric Tutor instead of any other card? Will it help me win the game soon? I don't think so. Running it in Gitrog is another cup of tea as it allows going (almost) infinite.
Whip of Erebos may work even if only one-time per creature but I would have to pack more "instant" wincons like Craterhoof or powerful ETBs. I will think about it.
Quote from shermanido37 »You are a deck that wants a ton of stuff in your graveyard to do explosive things, and you don't run Hermit Druid. I'm disappointed.
You could even enable some absurd combo like Druid -> Izoni -> Gaea's Cradle -> Death Cloud / Torment of Hailfire. Also viable with your Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle combo.
Honestly I don't see a scenario when milling my library would help with anything. Without I can't win with Laboratory Maniac and having about 30 tokens from Izoni can't beat infinite ones. Reanimating Razaketh or Craterhoof with Dread Return give me nothing either and I would have to run Necrotic Ooze combo instead to reap any benefits from milling myself.
As for Gaea's Cradle I have to admit I don't own that card as it's absudly expensive and somehow deck defining. I have listed and proxied it to see how much will I become dependant from it. I cannot deny it fits the deck very well though. When I fix my mana problems I will say if it's valid to run any X-spells here.
