Tier Nurgle – EDH ZOO DECK

Welcome to this new and awesome segment of this blog! Tier Nurgle, where I visit and examine my own mind for deck ideas that probably won’t work, that I create for the fun of it, and well, I share with all of you! So let’s take a look at the very first deck that will be posted here!


In legacy I’ve been attempting to build a ZOO deck, I’ve never really been that involved with legacy and I’m lagging behind in getting the cards I need. So for the hell of it, I built myself a EDH decklist, most of the cards being in my collection, except all the lands that I’ve just thrown in there and you can probably switch to what you want/have. Remember this is in not a deck to play if you want to kick ass, it’s a deck you want to play to have some fun. You will probably love the expression on your opponents when you play that Schyte Tiger. Yea you heard me… Scythe Tiger.

Here comes the creatures!

Creatures: 27
Balefire Liege
Boartusk Liege
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Now let’s quickly jump in to the spells, artifact and enchantments of the deck. This is a ZOO deck so of course I’m staying true to what kind of spells they usually play, spot removal, spot removal, and some random spells! Followed by a few buff enchantments like Gaea’s Anthem so my creature won’t be all to small during the game. The spell I’m most excited about to play is probably Lightning Bolt. Imagine killing a player with a lightning bolt! Without duplicating it or casting it forever! I’ m looking forward to that oh yes. Hell I’ve even thrown in the Punishing Fire – Burnwillows combo!

Spell: 12
Lightning Bolt
Krosan Grip

Enchantment: 7

Lastly, I threw in some Planeswalkers, but only a few. More like, eleven of them, not staying very true to the old ZOO deck here but hell, it’s EDH. Throwing in some awesome Planeswalkers when you can is a part of it! I will just post the the lands here as well since I really don’t have any comments on them except: play whatever lands you like!
