Return target creature card from your graveyard to your hand. If it's a Zombie card, draw a card.
Cemetery Recruitment Discussion
1 week ago
Hello! Wow, I really like this deck. It is unique and has a lot of ways to bring back cards. That being said, there is still room for improvement. For example, you have a lot of cards that require four mana to cast. You might want to reduce the amount of cards that require more mana to cast. In addition, you do not have much draw power, which may cause your hands to stagnate. I would suggest getting cards like: Cemetery Recruitment or Altar's Reap which can allow you to draw cards. Another good card to get is Lord of the Undead , which can buff your other zombies and also be a permanent re animator for your deck. He is $13, but he is well worth it. Those are all my suggestions for now, if you want you can take a look at my deck Vast Amounts of Zombie Tokens if you want more ideas. Take care and you get a +1. :D

I'm a sucker for themed decks, and while you may not know it, you've got the foundation for one in Bogbrew Witch, Bubbling Cauldron, and Festering Newt. Running a full 4 copies of the witch and the cauldron will allow you to take advantage of them more often. Also, 4 copies of Supernatural Stamina lets you recur Festering Newt for more shenanigans.
Viscera Seer is a great scry card, letting you set up your draws at the cost of sacrificing a creature.
Sorry. I know these are a lot of suggestions. These are what came to mind when I saw this.

Hi 5finga, thanks for your many suggestions. I don't really like Voracious Null nor Gutless Ghoul because their active abilities have an additional mana cost (even though that cost is perfectly balanced in the case of Gutless Ghoul). I also never understood the popularity of Twisted Abomination (paying 6 for a 5/3?? , ok it can regen, but... Maybe only if cycled and then Exhumed). Similar thought for Gavony Unhallowed, it costs too much and for this reason Carrion Feeder is better. Cemetery Recruitment is good, but it would be perfect for a , with its 2 drop cost is replaced by the better Ghoulcaller's Chant. Also, it couldn't combo with Nameless Inversion, because it explicitly says "creature card" and not only "zombie card" as the Chant does. On the other hand, Wight of Precinct Six may be perfect, I don't know how I missed it! Thank a lot for this last piece of advice! I know it's a long answer but I wanted to write down all my thoughts about these cards.

Not entirely sure how to upgrade this deck: Mono Black Pauper Zombies
What are your thoughts on this? Are their cards that would be good in this that I havent considered?
Please send me any suggestions as this is my oldest pauper deck i own and probably the weakest one i own.

Modern is often described as a turn four format, this means your deck needs to be in a position to win on turn four. Card choices are based on efficiency and consistency, there is a reason decks run 4x of cards, it is to improve the chance of drawing the card you need. Often you don't want to run just a 4x but you want a card with the same or similar effect meaning 8x so for example running 4x Ghoulcaller's Chant and 4x Cemetery Recruitment might make sense in your zombie based deck, but a card like Dutiful Return is just too expensive.
Diregraf Captain is a good lord type creature and if you want flying zombies Scrapskin Drake, Siren of the Silent Song or Stitched Drake would be better choices. I'd also suggest Gravecrawler, even if you are working to a budget, it is worth it.
You need to strip your deck back to a core, decide what it is you want to play and run 4x of those cards and 4x of the cards which support or protect that plan. You also need to balance your mana base better (27 is too much), land cards are worth the investment because they can be used in a variety of decks, so 4x Sunken Hollow probably wouldn't go wrong...
