Army of the Damned Discussion

benw on Marchesa's Zombie Horde

All three of my Tricolour zombie decks have been in need of serious updates since Commander 2014. I have made a lot of changes to update this since the revisit to Innistrad as cards like Cryptbreaker, Geralf's Masterpiece and others have been excellent additions.

The biggest change has been from self-mill with cards like Armored Skaab to self-discard with cards like Necromancer's Stockpile or Cryptbreaker.

The change relates to experience with my SBT BUG deck - I found that if you mill yourself a lot, all the other cards have to have recursion or other cards to reanimate them. So, unless we are talking about Faithless Looting or Army of the Damned sorceries in my Marchesa deck would need cards like Possessed Skaab, which lead to a lot of cards extra cards.

Now the deck revolves around strong Zombies with counters, cards like thraximunder, Diregraf Colossus, Noosegraf Mob and Unbreathing Horde. These zombies with counters, work alongside self-discard cards which help generate tokens, draw cards and fill the graveyard with tonnes of beneficial targets. Now that we are selectively discarding rather than milling, we can draw into lands and spells which we need in hand; cards like [[Living End] or [Twilight's Call]], which we couldn't do before. We can also discard targets like Scourge of Nel Toth or Anger or Vengeful Pharaoh.

I love the idea of Timmy Zombies! I'll definitely be exploring that route further. :D

Yeah, people hate the card. lol

Could you guys recommend any single-card win-cons for this kind of deck?

The best that I've seen so far are Exsanguinate (ramp helps), Keening Stone, Rise of the Dark Realms, Increasing Confusion, Consuming Aberration, Zombie Infestation, Bloodchief Ascension, Expropriate Psychosis Crawler and Army of the Damned.

Tunnel Vision also seemed solid, but it's not a single-card win-con.

There are some other cards that function basically the same as the ones above, but their cmc is higher, so I didn't list them.

In my deck I run a Rooftop Storm and Arcane Adaptation you can choose zombies and amplify Scarab God's impactAlso Army of the Damned is an absurdly good card for this deck and if you want to keep the graveyard theme Bone Dancer is a good choice

Ya know, with Army of the Damned, Worst Fears, and Sorin's Vengeance available, I'm surprised you haven't splashed for black.

Also I recomend World at War among all other extra combat cards because it will rebound for the next turn. Undying Flames at least sounds like a funny card to kill with!

Thanks for the awesome suggestions DerpDeer. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is definelty a nice card just a little too expensive. Zombie Apocalypse looks really fun and could definetly be added - can be really good in multiplayer matches. Replacing Dread Wanderer for Gravecrawler is definetly a upgrade just a little more pricey, but i will definetly look out for them. Rise from the Grave maybe seem a little slow but maybe could be added to the sideboard against decks with a lot of big creatures.

Adding Army of the Damned and replacing Grasp of Darkness for Tragic Slip is something i have to think a little more over :)

So I know you're trying to splash in blue, but I don't think there are enough good blue cards good with zombies to do that. Also, I think adding Army of the Damned into your mainboard would help you out a lot, especially if you had Endless Ranks of the Dead out. Another few suggestions I have are to switch out Grasp of Darkness with Tragic Slip, as a lot of creatures are going to die so you can take out bigger creatures for less mana, and also consider switching out Dread Wanderer for Gravecrawler as well. Instead of using Cemetery Recruitment, if you're only using it to get Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip, you could use Raise Dead. And also you could use Zombie Apocalypse, maybe Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and probably also a Rise from the Grave. None of these cards are too expensive, with the exception of Mikaeus, but I think they can help your deck out a lot more.
