KingOfWhales on Scarab God

I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.

If you are going for a lifedrain deck look at Bontu's Monument, Whip of Erebos is good.

Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.

There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat

Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.

Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.

I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

Faerie Miscreant is a pretty cheap flyer that can draw cards.

Mana base could use some upgrades, cheap additions could be-

Sunken Hollow

Choked Estuary

Jwar Isle Refuge

@Asder - Thanks for the suggestions. I actually did mean the Ulamog that I put, because its to protect me from getting milled out by my own Mesmeric Orb. Somehow I did forget about the second block on the second Ulamog though, and will try to find space for it in the deck.

As for the lands, Choked Estuary is the only one I'd consider cutting due to the other lands have added utility. The desert goes with the blue desert that mills the opponent by saccing a desert, and the basic fetches go well with Hedron Crab and Altar of the Brood.

And yeah, I would go infinite but my playgroup frowns on infinite combos, as it tends to be less fun to play.

Thanks again, glad you like the deck :)

this is a great deck and i love that mill is a thing in commander but i think you put it the wrong ulamog. i think you meant Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger but you put in Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. Hero's Downfall could be replaced with Never//Return. i also think that some more basic lands and less nonbasics would be good. most of the nonbasics you have are great except for a few; Choked Estuary, Survivors' Encampment, Drowned Catacomb, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds the check lands that requires swamps or islands are good but due to a lack of those i reckon that they should be taken out. also i realize that the cycling and shock lands among others count as both a swamp and an island. the rest of the deck it great and, although i personally would have gone infinite, i respect your decision to not do that. overall i reckon this is a solid deck.

ace2412 Hello my friend. I am sorry to inform you, but shadows over innistrad rotates out in a week:(

Choked Estuary, Startled Awake and Thing in the Ice  Flip will soon rotate.

Don't worry though. You can put in Fleet Swallower (instant win with Fraying Sanity). You can also play Glimmer of Genius for the card advantage and then play a couple of Minister of Inquiries, along with Aether Hub and Drowned Catacomb

Sorry, I've been on holidays and haven't had much time to test builds.

Are you aware that you will lose a lot of the cards that make this deck work, after rotation in a couple of weeks?

Specifically these ones:

Altar's Reap
Compelling Deterrence
Choked Estuary
Diregraf Colossus
Graf Harvest
Grasp of Darkness
Relentless Dead

Basically Zombie Tribal decks are going to be a lot weaker in two weeks time.

You might want to think about building a different Tribe, like Merfolk.

This deck looks awesome, but the next standard rotation will really screw up your land distribution. Luckily you can stick Glacial Fortress and Drowned Catacomb in place of your Port Town and Choked Estuary, but what about your Westvale Abbey  Flip?

Also, Choked Estuary is usually better than Dismal Backwater. Though, you're probably running it to play when you don't need another mana on the turn you play it.
