Bloodhunter Bat Discussion

Jet Medallion is not usually legal in modern.

Also, way too many high-cost easily-removed creatures. If what you want is to play control with some high-end finishers, you could try Damnation instead of various kinds of spot removal. If that is too expensive and non-budget, Mutilate is an option (but then you need more swamps, so you are sure to hit land every turn). Liliana of the Dark Realms to ensure a steady stream of swamps, perhaps?

Besides: Just get those 4 Inquisition of Kozilek/Thoughtseize. Boring and often-played, maybe, but that is because it's just THAT good to discard your opponents best card out of his opening hand. Murder is a pretty bad card (you often end up paying 3 mana to remove a 1 or 2 mana creature in modern). Fatal Push is a lot better, or Victim of Night, if you want a budget-option. Same argument in the other direction: Most removal in modern costs 1 mana. Playing 4 mana creatures that die to all the most often played removal is not going to be a winning strategy (Bloodhunter Bat, Deathgaze Cockatrice and so on). Yes, you can get them with Raise Dead. That makes it cost even more mana, and the overpriced creature is just as vulnerable the second time it's in play, as it was the first time. Suggestion: Avoid all the small creatures, and just go for control elements instead: sweepers like Mutilate, spot removal, and low-cost discard. You probably also won't get much out of those expensive enchantments, since they eat up a whole turns mana, but doesnt do anything when you play them.

More thoughts:

Also Bojuka Bogs for graveyard hate, Barren Moors for long game where you don't need gas.

You're in black and not playing Duress...?

I'd play Unearths instead of Gravepurge

In this kind of voltron-ish build Gaze of Pain could be good...??

The curve is really high. Take out Essence Drain - it's way to much mana for too little of an effect. Same for Liliana's Shade and Bloodhunter Bat

Typhoid Rats in the sideboard for creature based matchups

Vault Skirge ??

I'd recommend Bontu's Monument cuz most of your cards have high CMC, and I'd swap Darkblast with Tragic Slip. Besides that it looks like a fun deck.

Plague Wind costs way to much mana, Mutilate would be way more effective, same goes for Liliana Vess. Liliana of the Dark Realms has better effects in combo with your other cards. (Her Ult is great, and most ppl won't race to kill her.)

Bloodhunter Bat is also kinda meh, I'd swap it for some black 1 or 2 drop.

Hello ! I think first 20 land is not enough to play Lilianna planeswalker at 7CMC and other card at 5 or 6 CMC, you need 25 26 land to put a land each turn. You must focus on one stratgie in standard. Here you play mostly zombie so try to play card only zombie to find better synergie. Horror of the Broken Lands, Ruthless Sniper, and Baleful Ammit don't synergie with Liliana's Mastery for example. ON budget you can find great card zombie and you can find better control card.

List of suggestion : Stir the Sands, Nerver // Return, Yahenni's Expertise, Fatal Push not very expensive jus Fatal Push. To replace not zombie card, Certain Death, Final Reward and add more Doomed Dissenter, Lord of the Accursed.

To finish Bloodhunter Bat and Raise Dead are illegal in Standard format.

Good luck with your deck =).

First suggestion is to cut all the cards that are creatures that are not zombies or zombie related. If you have a theme you are going for, usually better not to bog it down with cards that don't help the deck idea.

Creature cards to to consider or put more copies in:

Lord of the Accursed: you should try to get 4 copies in the deck if possible. It makes a zombie theme deck much stronger just because you get the +1/+1 for all your other zombies in play.

Wayward Servant: again 4 copies because of how you should have all your cards being zombie related means this will sap your opponent and give some extra so you can afford to take hits.

Cryptbreaker: a good one drop that can turn cards in hand into tokens. Also useful because you can use it to draw.

Diregraf Colossus: is a creature that is useful cast earl since he makes it so you can get a token army going. also useful if drawn late because it becomes bigger for each zombie creature in your grave.

Dread Wanderer (site link not working, you can view it here): is useful if you can get them because they have the ability to come back from the grave and are a decent body for a 1 drop.

Support cards:

Graf Harvest: gives all your zombies menace as a 1 drop enchantment seems really useful and also allows you to exile creatures in your grave to create tokens. Suggest no more then 2 copies in the deck as drawing extra copies becomes useless.

Dark Salvation: a decent control spell that becomes much more useful since you are a zombie deck.

Liliana's Mastery: is another useful card that gives all your zombies +1/+1, but also generates you three 2/2 tokens.

Cards that must come out:

Useless: Faith of the Devoted: you only have one card with cycling in the deck for this to work with. Not worth running for that.

Not in standard format: Bloodhunter Bat, Standing Troops, Stormfront Pegasus, Victory's Herald

These are some quick card suggestions. If you need help finding more zombie related cards, I suggest searching other decks people have posted here or use the website My list of suggestions do not contain all the cards you might really want, but should help get you going in the right direction. Best of luck with making the deck work. if you have any questions feel free to ask and I will try to help as well as I can.

Why are you thinking about removing the Hellkite? Is it the high CMC?

Other lower CMC options that do similar things include the following: Gibbering Fiend, Keldon Marauders, Impact Tremors, Forgeborn Oreads, Keldon Champion, Foundry Champion, Blind Hunter, Bloodhunter Bat, Dakmor Ghoul, Grim Guardian, Pierce Strider, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Outpost Siege. Personally, I think Gibbering Fiend and Keldon Marauders are the best. They're super low CMC, so you can play them much earlier in the game and start pinging the opponent for more damage sooner.

Invader Parasite is another option, if you don't mind not having any friends. Just make sure you don't accidentally exile all of your own lands, too.

Unless this is budget, you might want to update your lands. Take out Oath of Chandra, you don't have enough planeswalkers. Take out Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip. It's for more of a mono-red deck. Bloodhunter Bat is not worth running for 4 mana.
