PostSubject: Horde EDH variant: I made one...   Thu Nov 10, 2011 12:07 pm

So, many of you have already been kicking around this sweet co-op idea, found on: http://www.quietspeculation.com/2011/09/horde-magic-a-new-way-to-play-magic-and-survive-zombie-invasions/

Basically, your "Survivor" EDH decks fight a pile of 100 hasty zombies. This is the most excited I've been about magic since Innistrad was spoiled. Anyway, here is a very rough draft I pulled together with an hour and no sleeves:

TOKENS
55 Zombie tokens
5 Zombie Giant tokens

OTHER ZOMBIES (1 each)
Phyrexian Crusader
Lightning Reaver
Order of Yawgmoth
Zombie Goliath
Jhessian Zombies
Scourge Servant
Blackcleave Goblin
Putrid Leech
Toxic Nim
Rotting Fensnake
Warpath Ghoul
Abattoir Ghoul
Zombie Outlander
Shambling Remains
Grixis Grimblade
Nested Ghoul
Vedalken Ghoul
Sanguine Guard
Escaped Null
Cemetery Reaper

OTHER CREATURES
Zombie Master
Chancellor of the Annex
Ulamog's Crusher

OTHER SPELLS
Choke
Hideous Visage
Levitation
Titanic Ultimatum
Destructive Force
Moan of the Unhallowed
Tempest of Light
Overwhelming Stampede
Creeping Corrosion
Asceticism
Zealous Persecution
Intangible Virtue
Overrun
Painful Quandary
Smallpox
Triumph of the Hordes
Forsaken Wastes

COMMANDER (see below)
Zombie Master

PROPOSED HOUSE RULE:
Zombies have a commander; needs to be a creature, doesn't have to be legendary (for now). Survivors get opening turns equal to that creature's CMC. That commander is indestructible. If it would be put anywhere, it is put (back) onto the battlefield.

I welcome your thoughts. It already seems a bit overpowered to "Survive" against...

Jake and I (as well as a spattering of Farnam and Abernathy) have been playtesting a horde deck, and it is a lot of fun. I can bring it in tomorrow if anyone wants to play against it. It's actually really hard! We have some premade survivor decks, but they're 60 card singleton decks with no commanders. They're really flavorful for battling zom zoms though.

I really like playing against it. It is really fun, even when the Zoms get like 13 of them out on one turn. What do you think about putting a Boss Zombie in? Something like the following:

Akeurn, the Living Dead 1BB

Legendary Boss Creature- Zombie

Boss ( Indestructable, Hexproof, Damage dealt to this creature is dealt in the form of -0/-1 counters)

When Akeurn, the Living Dead enters the battlefield, put X +/+1 counters on it where X is twice the number of zombie cards in your graveyard.

3/3

I like the boss idea; some "really" permanent permanent (commander). Always hard to know how much one-sidedness of zombie win is mismatch, and how much is "natural variation". I do like it in the EDH house as a variant.

What do folks think of rolling a twelve sided die to see how many "supplies" each survivor brings to the camp, then add them?

Other appropriate hordes? Perhaps "300 Trojan soldiers"? Goblins? (Were)wolves?

Seems like the Commander-Survivor decks should also be tribal (like humans, elves, angels, merfolk, or vampires...)...?

Did I mention I like this variant? Smile
