The latest addition to my stable of decks is this cheerful fella:

Nothing too innovative here; Zombies, and ways to kill your creatures so I can have them, preferably as Zombies. To the decklist!

Notable things about the decklist – some things serve several purposes. Graveborn Muse, for example is both a Zombie, and card draw. Gravespawn Soveriegn is both a Zombie and Brings Yours Back… and so on. There are some cards I still want to get – most notably Army of the Damned and Endless Ranks of the Dead – but this should be a pretty good start, I hope. Am I missing anything obvious?

    I would play the age old favourite of zombie decks, crypt defiler if i could. Also, skullclamp is uncool? šŸ˜€

      Grave Defiler? Skullclamp is totally not uncool – I have one kicking around somewhere. What do you think I should drop?

    cut the phages .. play gravedigger? or perhaps the random zombie back gravedigger from ISD or DKA ghoulcaller also coffin queen is a zombie… just saying…

      I like the phages – with a lord or two they’re properly scary. Gravedigger (and related friends) were in the initial build but I don’t know if they’d carry their weight (e.g cost four times as much as Carnophage, just as tough).

      Coffin Queen, huh? šŸ˜‰ Must find one.

      What I’d like is a Cover of Darkness or Intimidation (or in a pinch Dance of Shadows or Hideous Visage) for Alpha-Striking goodness.

    also i think helldozer is going to draw you undeserved amounts of hate.. i’d consider a grotesque hybrid… he seems sick also with any amount of recursion flesh bag marauder is probably better than one of your random kill spells…

      Helldozer is something I’ve been trying to run for a LONG time, I want to see how he does for reals. Obviously he’s dangerous, but there aren’t that many lands I’d want to kill – but the ones I do want to kill must DIE NOW. I’ll play him a few times and see how he goes.

      Grotesque Hybrid is really interesting – I hadn’t run across it before. Not sure about him but may try and find one and give it a whirl.

      My kill spells aren’t as random as they look – when I was looking for kill spells I was looking for preferably CMC 3 or less, and instant speed (so I can steal stuff with Lim-Dul as a trick). Black gets ‘Destroy Target Creature’ – they’re overwhelmingly 5 mana and sorcery speed. So I have to satisfy myself with “conditional” removal. But when that condition is “non-elf” or “non-spirit” I think I’ll be fine 98% of the time. Fleshbag Marauder, while good, won’t get me the creature I want, when I want it. ‘Sides, I’m getting sick of the sight of him šŸ˜‰
