Cemetery Recruitment Discussion

Clezdin on Dark Woods B/G Zombies and Delirium

Thanks for the suggestion, I think I like the added remove of Shamble Back over Cemetery Recruitment. Now that I am thinking about it, pulling a creature from the graveyard for 2 mana is way less supportive of the delirium side of the deck, so it's off to the sideboard for that.

Cool deck! Love some mono black shenanigans, but it seems like it could be a little slow. Have you considered Carrion Feeder as a lower to the ground sac outlet? Also, Cemetery Recruitment could be a better alternative to Macabre Waltz, since usually you can get two cards. In bigger thoughts, have you thought about moving a little away from recursion spells and that time spiral combat trick, and more into a little heftier removal package and maybe some more threats? Recursion is good, but in some matchups you're definitely going to run into grave hate, so it's not always as good as just being another good card. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the feedback, I'll add it to the sideboard. I was considering adding Lord of the Accursed as well but I was on the fence about adding too many creatures so Liliana's Mastery looks like an interesting way to get the same effect and also get some more zombies on the board. Surprised I glossed over it.

Do you think it would be a good idea to replace Dark Salvation or Cemetery Recruitment with it or should I just keep it in the sideboard and just decide situationally?

I was thinking of adding Obelisk of Urd, actually! I might add another two copies of Assault Formation as well, or include it in my Sideboard. Also added in Perpetual Timepiece for more scrapping, and added in both Diabolic Tutor and Cemetery Recruitment for possible recovery of a creature at the hands of Mulch, Commune with the Gods, Nyx Weaver, or Grisly Salvage.

I agree with all of the above, I'd recommend putting in 4 of Dusk / Dawn to open up slots taken up with Skywhaler's Shot and Murder and Fortuitous Find to board wipe over top of your creatures and recur all of them with the dawn portion to hand from the graveyard and then instead of hoping you draw one of 7 cards you can have 4 do double duty the only one that won't survive Dusk / Dawn is Master Trinketeer but giving it indestuctible via say Renegade's Getaway or Fumigate and Cemetery Recruitment or something similar but find what you're comfortable playing and has multiple lines to your end goal. Sorin works well when you +1 into Dusk / Dawn because the cmc is 9 not

Your curve seems to be a bit high for a legacy deck with no card draw. Maybe Cemetery Recruitment for a cantrip?

Carrion Feeder better sac outlet than gnawing zombies

Apprentice Necromancer hasty zombies are cool, this seems like an all star under mimic vat

Plaguebearer-anti token tech

Relentless Dead good all around card

Shepherd of Rot good with whip of erebos

Tymaret, the Murder King sac outlet with minor upsides. the more zombies in the deck the better

Withered Wretch graveyard hate=super good. if you run a lot of graveyard hate maybe look at Living Death as well

Anathemancer silly ramp decks with their fancy dual lands

Cemetery Reaper graveyard hate and lord

Death Baron no one will block thrax

Diregraf Colossus seems good at swarming, really good with gravecaller and phyrexian altar

Lich Lord of Unx slow token production, kinda cool win con

Lord of the Accursed another lord

Nantuko Husk free sac outlet. maybe better than ashnod's altar?

Plague Belcher board wipe i dare you

Unbreathing Horde big dumb guy, possibly hard to kill though

Agent of Erebos graveyard hate that could be repeatable

Corpse Augur card draw, you might be lacking on this type of effect right now

Drunau Corpse Trawler two zombies in one card

Forgotten Creation get that hand cycling for living death and patriarch's bidding

Risen Executioner another lord with possible upside

Undead Alchemist go wide in clever way

Undead Warchief super good card

Vengeful Dead another anti wrath tech

Custodi Lich card draw and board control

Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain in massive swings is good in my book

Havengul Lich awesome card, would play

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus gotta get that blue/red working in your deck. this could be a Rhystic Study possibly as well

Lightning Reaver no one expects the hasty zombie, and gets around pillow forts. might make people target it/you

Noxious Ghoul super great card! it's been an all-star in every zombie deck i've run

Phyrexian Delver reanimation is good i hear

Possessed Skaab The zombie eternal witness?

Sidisi, Undead Vizier get your rooftop storm on curve

Woebearer slowish reanimation

Deathbringer Thoctar more creature control

Gempalm Polluter killing folks at instant speed, could be good to Phyrexian Reclamation

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed the best lord

Noosegraf Mob go wide

Twisted Abomination good early and late

Dark Salvation flexible kill card. make sure you understand the card before goofing it up

Cemetery Recruitment cheap draw 2

Zombie Infestation swarm card, might want to run a Bident of Thassa to fuel it

Curse of Shallow Graves kinda risky token maker

Empty the Pits instant speed army please?

Gisa and Geralf the type of non zombie i like in this deck

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet graveyard hate and tokens, winner winner chicken dinner

Vizier of Many Faces the embalm is a zombie, and you can get value out of milling it

Call to the Grave a payoff card to running zombies

Ghoulcaller Gisa swarm and sac outlet

Liliana, Death's Majesty if you want a planeswalker

Stitcher Geralf remember you can exile the creatures your opponents mill

Syphon Flesh expensive creature kill

Ever After could be good

Zombie Apocalypse this seems great

Necromantic Selection really expensive wrath, might want a Decree of Pain for the mana cost

Army of the Damned yeah zombies

Possible cuts

gnawing zombie- i think carrion feeder is better

mind slash- really slow, like really

phyrexian crusader- if this is your only infect threat i'm not sure i like it

defiler of souls- call to the grave is better in my book

cruel ultimatum mana curve reasons

curse of the cabal see above

trophy mage non zombie

phyrexian obliterator non zombie

you could think about cutting mulldrifter and skriekmaw as well because they aren't zombies

well that's a lot to think about, i'm excited to see what you put together!!!
