Cemetery Reaper Discussion

Sargeras on Modern Zombies

I'll have to agree with previous comments that this is just a mono-black devotion deck that you decided to throw some recursive creatures into, along with Lord of the Accursed and called mono-black zombies. This isn't to say the deck is bad, as a Mono-black Midrange player myself I will attest this. But this is far from a Zombie tribal deck as advertised.

If you really wanted to build a Zombie Tribal deck, I'd reccomend a green splash, which would easily be affordable considering the amount of fetches you play, in order to play Collected Company.

Another fatty you should be playing in zombie tribal is Plague Belcher. Since you can easily kill a Gravecrawler or any other recursive creature, it's a 5/4 menance that can easily take over a game (With Menace to boot!)

Of course if you were to play zombies, cards like Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead all become excellent options.

If you aren't going to take advantage of the Zombie tribe, I'd recommend moving Gifted Aetherborn to the maindeck, and cutting your zombie sub-theme since basically all your creatures turns 1-3 can't really block anything at all.

Also, cards like Lashwrithe can show up because with fatties like Kalitas you can just win games swinging for upwards of 9 power with lifelink a turn. (Also goes really well with Obliterator)

Also, if this deck is meant to be played competitively, run Liliana, the Last Hope, if in the sideboard if not the mainboard. The reason for this is becuase she can hold off small aggressive creatures, as well as fetch your zombies that you are already playing (cards like Gravecrawler and Bloodghast, and the best part, SHE CAN RECUR FULMINATOR MAGES! something this deck needs to do to beat decks like tron.

If you want any further help, feel free to look at my primer for all mono-black needs!

Hi dracoarmy,

Thanks very much for the feedback, I've since modified the deck a little bit to include more zombies so I wanna keep the mini tribal theme in there for now.

Whilst this isn't "budget" as such I'm trying to avoid any overly oppressive cards, I have a pretty casual playgroup and cards like Phyrexian Obliterator are a bit too extreme (it's also why Oath of Liliana is in here over Vile Requiem, I've tried to include as many "Liliana" cards as possible).

May have to look into Vengeful Dead, Cemetery Reaper and Scourge of Nel Toth as they both seem very much on theme with what I want to be doing, originally had Whip of Erebos in and might add it back just to give the deck a little more sustain.

Have taken out Shimmering Grotto and Cascading Cataracts, was gonna keep them in just in case I reanimated a creature with off-colour activated abilities, but just having the creature is usually good enough.

Thanks again for your help, I'm gonna keep tinkering away at this deck whilst I still grab a lot of the essential components (who'd have thought a mono-colour mana base would be a pain to build? :P)

With only 3 blue mana symbols in your entire deck, you're better off finding something else that can fulfill a similar purpose using black mana. I would recommend some Zombie Anthems like Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Lord of the Accursed, or big zombies like Diregraf Colossus. Vile Rebirth and Shamble Back are good ways to get creatures out cheap, because right now you only have 3 creatures below 3 CMC.

Cemetery Reaper and Lord of the Accursed are really nice zombie anthem cards. Unbreathing Horde is also a terrifying card in any zombie deck.

With only 7 zombies in the deck and very few ways to make them, I would remove Undead Warchief, Soulless One, Lord of the Accursed, Gravecrawler only 7 zombies hard to bring back, Oath of Liliana,Relentless Dead (maby)

Id add Vile Requiem in place of Oath of Liliana. Its a good removal.

Or you can just add more zombies. to make the cards worth it.

Maby add Zombie Master, Unbreathing Horde if one thing in play gives it +0 +1, it can never die from combat. Risen Executioner, Cemetery Reaper, Butcher Ghoul

Although a little expensive Death Baron is a really good zombie. Also Gravecrawler , Cemetery Reaper and Grave Titan are good cards to consider.

You could always build around killing and reanimating certain creatures with her, exiling the stuff you don't want with guys like Withered Wretch and Cemetery Reaper. But yes, she's definitely limited in scope and expensive.
