Call to the Grave Discussion
1 hour ago
Not sure I would want to start with less than 37 mana sources, The Locust God is super mana hungry, and I expect in many games you will be casting him every turn (similar to what Zach did to me with the Locust god)
I'm thinking Call to the Grave might be a bit too symmetrical, and you need less 5 drops. (your only non-zombie might be your commander)
The other one might be Extract from Darkness on second look, it's possible that in many cases you will have already mined the good creatures, and turning over 2 might miss, or not be worth 5 mana. I would buy it since it's super cheap and keep it for tuning, but probably want to run a land instead in the first draft.

Maybe you can do something with Call to the Grave? Flavorwise it's one of my favorite zombie cards.

I said I would get back to you on cuts and here they are...
Phyrexian Crusader, I have never gained any momentum from playing him in a non-infect deck. Unless you are pumping him and giving him double strike, he's not usually seen as a threat. Also, infect draws hate. When people see one infect card they assume you have others.
Adaptive Automaton, this seems like a cop-out. It's a vanilla tribal king that doesn't play into any particular strategy except buffs. I'd rather have something like Corpse Harvester or Unbreathing Horde on the draw in the late game.
Thassa, God of the Sea, great card in a lot of respects but the unblockable for a few creatures doesn't carry as far when you are attacking with a horde. For evasion, try Wonder, Eldrazi Monument, or Akroma's Memorial. For card advantage, try Rhystic Study, Graveborn Muse, or Disciple of Bolas.
