Cara, algumas criaturas que voce colocou nao valem a pena na minha opiniao. Por exemplo Drudge Beetle , Korozda Monitor e Terrus Wurm . O motivo e simples...o preco do scavenge deles e muito alto pelo numero de contadores que eles fornecem. Excelentes alternativas sao Deadbridge Goliath e Dreg Mangler . Voce pode ainda colocar esta belezinha daqui se voce estiver a fim de investir um pouco mais no deck Varolz, the Scar-Striped . Voce pode usar o Sewer Shambler e combar o swampwalk dele com Contaminated Ground . Um outro problema que voce tera que contornar...mana. Overgrowth pode te auxiliar na tarefa de gerar bastante mana para pagar os scavenge. Me parece ser bem interessante para voce esta carta: Fate Transfer . Se nao ficou muito claro, com ela voce pode mover counters acumulados para Sewer Shambler (que pode estar imbloqueavel no momento) ou Daggerdrome Imp , o qual te dara vida ate dizer chega. Sem falar que se Corpsejack Menace estiver em jogo, no meu entendimento os seus counter serao dobrados ao usar Fate Transfer !Para sideboad considere Nature's Claim

I have made a few adjustments. let me know what you think:

I am moving Contaminated Ground and Underworld Connections to SB. I am removing 3x swamps and adding 2x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx .With the extra spot I will add 2x Liliana Vess , now that she is coming back in M15. I have removed 2x Pharika's Cure and replaced them with 2x Drainpipe Vermin if more discard options are needed, as well as increasing the chance to the feed Altar's Reap .

The purpose of this deck is to limit the number of cards/options my opponent has.

At the heart of my master plan is Shrieking Affliction . I have quite a few options and some combos to get my opponents to quickly be at a disadvantage and to start losing life. If I can stack 2 or more Shrieking Affliction , well that would just be cake.

Brain Maggot , Mind Rot and Thoughtseize are my bread and butter out of the gate. Cheap and efficient and in an ideal draw, get my opponent down to 3 cards by turn 3-4.

Altar's Reap and Drainpipe Vermin as a combo are quite exciting. A 2 card draw for me and 1 discard for my opponent, all for a measly 3 mana, what can I say other than, WOW! but that's just me.

Ashiok's Adept + Deviant Glee makes for a really cheap date with a happy ending or even better, the wicked combo of Ashiok's Adept +Ordeal of Erebos and it's game over.

As a last resort I want a heavy hitter to be possible if my discard and Shrieking Affliction hasn't finished my opponent off yet. For now I have chosen Liliana's Reaver to come in and pound whatever life is left out of him...the extra zombies are kinda cool too. As you can see I have also put Master of the Feast and Squelching Leeches on my maybe board because I am not sure which of these three I want to be as my finisher. Each has its advantages and or special flavour, they all will have the same result in the end. I see a lot of decks with Master of the Feast , he is great but his ability goes against what i am trying to accomplish with discard. My preference is either LR or SL because I think they are interesting and more importantly don't see them in many decks. I like to be different. But in the end I need the best card to help me win.

I like Contaminated Ground because it can really slow down an opponent's plans and the life loss is an added bonus.

Underworld Connections is great for me to set up my hand, the life loss is negligible.

I have put in Temple of Deceit for the scry to help plan my attack. In place of Temple of Deceit I am considering Read the Bones , perhaps you can weigh in on that and help me decide.

As much as I love the first Theros rare I pulled ( Pyxis of Pandemonium ), it really deserves it's own deck. Seven mana is hard to produce for the swing, which may be hit or miss.

I did a little re-vamp of the deck, as it was too sorcery-heavy. Grim Guardian 's back, and Havoc Festival shines once again. Font of Ire actually does work here, as the threat of activation leaves opponents reluctant to remove it and the five damage kills most planeswalkers outright. I've also decided that Stab Wound is, in fact, main-board worthy, as it most likely has a target. Swap it out for Contaminated Ground against control! Thanks for the comments, let's see what tomorrow will bring.

You're off to a good start here. +1

Cover of Darkness would be a great addition to the deck, as would the Zombie Master + Contaminated Ground combo. I'd replace Cemetery Reaper with Zombie Master, if it were me.

I think the magus staffs, the Demon's Horn and Kraken's eye are too slow, and too high a cost, to justify their inclusion, personally. For lifegain, you're better off including some Blood Artist , since creatures are going to be doing a lot of dying. Not zombies, I know, but far more useful than the other lifegain items you have here, and at a lower mana cost.

I would drop the Call to the Grave. For a five drop, you can do a lot better. I would also consider replacing at least one Grave Betrayal for Liliana Vess , if she's in your budget. Frankly, in a zombie deck, I try to avoid 7-drops in as much as possible, and really limit anything over 5 that isn't a really awesome creature that I can resurrect if it gets countered. All it takes is a counter spell and your grand finale is bust.

Here are some other cards you might want to think about:

I hope I have the price ranges on those correct.
