Bad Moon Discussion

R.C. on The Black Generals

Tempted to remove Bad Moon just for another land. With such a high average CMC, I need those land drops. Might drop Butcher of Malakir since he almost never see's play (I'm sure that can happen with a 99 card deck haha). But I could throw in a cheaper creature on the off chance I need it. Like Pawn of Ulamog since he can be both cheap and create tokens, as well as those tokens help trigger Morbid and give me mana. Unfortunately, he doesn't care for tokens being sacrificed, unlike Butcher.

If I trade out an equal cost card, I'd prefer Overseer of the Damned, but Blood Speaker might take the spot for now.

Coat of Arms for massive, massive zombies.

Bad Moon for a small boost.

Magus of the Coffers for another Crypt Ghast/Cabal Coffer Variant.

Vesuva and Thespian's Stage to copy Cabal Coffers.

Expedition Map to get that Cabal Coffers.

Lightning Greaves for a better Swiftfoot Boots.

Maybe some more removal?

Actually, I did take out Promise of Power but looks like I forgot to edit that when I was posting the recent Ahmonket update haha. And I kinda agree on Bad Moon. It's been useful, but only helps in that one way. I tried running Paragon of Open Graves, but he wouldn't last on the field as long. I'm looking into maybe Caged Sun as it would help with mana and boosting my guys.

R.C., maybe take out Promise of Power or Bad Moon? I honestly haven't played with either, but I feel like Promise is just adding on to your already really heavy card draw and Bad Moon wouldn't do enough.

Loco-Motive on In the Company of Zombies

So after about a careful year of continual tweaks and trials, this deck is firming itself up quite well. With the newer Zombies we've received from both Shadows Over Innistrad and Amonkhet, I feel this deck got a bit stronger, more resilient.

Notably, I've completely replaced Diregraf Ghoul, which was always a great play on Turn 1, with the new Dread Wanderer. It carries the same power I'm looking for with some additional resiliency built it! I've also included a playset of Lord of the Accursed as an additional Lord to pump up the team.

I've dropped all creatures with CMC 4 or greater to better synergize with Collected Company. I've also reduced the land count from 23 down to 22 as a result. Thanks to bold44 for the land makeover. Adding in two basic forests for the first time to guard against Bad Moon and reducing the Mutavaults down to 2 and the Cavern of Souls down to 3. Bold44, you suggested I go down to 2 Cavern of Souls, but I tell ya, it's really great to get one early against a control player.

tempest, I saw that you linked up this deck to your Tribal Library that you created, and I appreciate the inclusion! Thanks for the mention there as well as the suggestions you were throwing in!

There are some cards in the Maybeboard that I think are worth considering, and cards that other members here have suggested. I do think they are great suggestions, but for the life of me, I'm finding it just too difficult to see where they fit in and, more importantly, what comes out to make room for them. Help is always appreciated.

I have outstanding questions! Of note:

Lotleth Troll and Plague Belcher both seem like quality includes, but I just don't know what comes out for them, if anything.

Another big question is what's better: Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek in the sideboard. What's better? Not getting pinged for life but grabbing anything you want out of their hand, or saving the life but putting a restriction on what you can take?

Lastly...Grave Pact. Too cutesy? Way too awesome in this deck not to have?

-1 Desecration Elemental (this card is bad)

+1 Champion of Stray Souls, Carrion Feeder, or Viscera Seer (they're just better sac outlets for you deck, if you're looking for one)

-1 Bad Moon (you don't have enough creatures for this to actually help you)

+1 Gaea's Anthem or Death Pit Offering (both are better anthems for your deck, if you want an anthem)

-1 From Under the Floorboards (you have no ways to enable the madness and it's a subpar spell otherwise)

+1 Army of The Dammed (if you want a token maker, hard to beat this. You can also mill it when you don't want it and flash it back later)

-1 Mutilate (10 swamps aren't enough to make this card worth it)

+1 Black Sun's Zenith, Languish, or Toxic Deluge (if you're looking for a sweeper that doesn't say "destroy", these are the best)

Ratta Tat Tat Tat. Dont forget Pack Rat!

Lands:

Swarmyard seems perfect too.

Some more tribal/creature pump:

Metallic Mimic for counters on all of your rats and Adaptive Automaton for a similar lord effect. Akroma's Memorial, Stoneforge Masterwork, Eldrazi Monument, Bad Moon

Answers:

Attrition, Eliminate the Competition, Mutilate

Card Draw:TBD!!!

Ramp:

Liliana of the Dark Realms, Sol Ring, Black Market

Rat Creature Options:

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Crypt Rats, Throat Slitter, Patron of the Nezumi, Plague of Vermin, Pack Rat

INFECT:

Ichor Rats, Septic Rats

Potential Cuts (In my opinion):

Prototype Portal Confused on why this is here. Rhystic Tutor Will almost always be countered in multiplayer. Geth's Verdict Better options for targeted removal Murder Howling Mine Black doesnt want to help everyone. Phyrexian Arena FTW.
