Corpse Connoisseur

Creature — Zombie Wizard

When Corpse Connoisseur enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a creature card and put that card into your graveyard. If you do, shuffle your library.

Unearth (: Return this card from your graveyard to the battlefield. It gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step or if it would leave the battlefield. Unearth only as a sorcery.)

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Cards to consider adding:

Dreadnought in your graveyard is a 12/12 with trample for one mana with Lazav. Dreadnought and Asp in your graveyard is a combo. Become Dreadnought with Lazav attack and in combat become Asp, make Asp have infect for and kill an opponent with trampling 12/12 infect. Soulgorger is a 8/8 for three mana, also good. Buried/Windfall/Frantic/Careful are all potential early game plays to get creatures into your graveyard. Windfall/Frantic/Careful can also draw which is helpful. Buried is pretty important because it can tutor for and put up to three creatures into your graveyard at one time for three mana. It alone can set up the Dreadnought/Asp combo. Jace/Wharf/Looter can be early game creatures who can be repeatable ways to draw while also putting a creature into your graveyard.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Deadly Visit
  • Mephitic Vapors
  • Never Happened
  • Severed Strands
  • Stolen Identity
  • Vicious Rumors
  • Cancel
  • Dimir Charm
  • Necrotic Wound
  • Barrier of Bones
  • Dimir Spybug
  • Watcher in the Mist
  • Whisper Agent
  • Jace Beleren

Lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Tata - There is definitely the odd unplayable hand... I had been on the fence about Dimir House Guard as a tutor for Pod, just now swapping it out to bring RecSage back. I'm still on the fence with Corpse Connoisseur... And for the reanimation pieces, I think there are plenty ETB triggers in here, so chances are there will still be something useful to return from the graveyard.

Let me see if I can remember what I originally typed...

I basically seconded the Genesis Chamber suggestion - that card is nuts with Bloodsoaked Champion and Nether Traitor. If you want to go more towards that kind of "whenever a non-token creature enters/dies" thing, I'd consider including Reassembling Skeleton. These can all be tutored by Buried Alive or Corpse Connoisseur and if you decide to include the latter one, Gravecrawler could also be a worthy addition even if your deck's zombie count ain't otherwise that high. These weenies that come back from the graveyard also work really well with Pawn of Ulamog and Ogre Slumlord that someone already suggested.

Smothering Abomination and Dark Prophecy are great draw engines in a deck like this.

Carnival of Souls might work here too if you wanna go more combo oriented. I think the card might actually work pretty well with your commander.

I second Genesis Chamber. That card can be a house with Nether Traitor and Bloodsoaked Champion. You can add in Reassembling Skeleton too and you can reliably get one (or all) of them with Corpse Connoisseur or Buried Alive. If you decide to 'Connoisseur Gravecrawler can work too, allthough your zombie count otherwise doesn't seem that high.

If you wanna go combo(ish), Carnival of Souls might actually be good with your commander. Also, I've found out that Smothering Abomination and Dark Prophecy are pretty good sources of card draw in these decks.

Hope that helps! :)

Thank you for this response everyone !

Ouroboros_47 I tried to make a selections of cards that have another purpose than just put things into graveyard. This is the reason why i cut Stitcher's Supplier or Corpse Connoisseur. Delirium Skeins and Zombie Infestation seems good but I don't know if I want to throw a half or a third of my hand to fill up my graveyard. I will consider Smallpox and Darkblast. I think Darkblast can easily fill up the graveyard.

bushido_man96 I like your vision of the deck. If Izoni was Sultai... It would be so powerfull. Anyway... I like the idea of trigger multiple times her ability. Conjurer's Closet seems to be a great addition to the deck. It synergizes with all the ETB ability. Same with Temur Sabertooth(triggers Avenger of Zendikar, Fleshbag Marauder effects, Wood Elves effects). And what do you think about Panharmonicon ? And think Tortured Existence and Phyrexian Reclamation can be better engine recursion than "one shot" recursions like Animate Dead or Eternal Witness. And the deck will be more polyvalent.

Quicksilver Yes, thank you i forgot Altar of Dementia, thank you ;)

So what do you think about this cuts ?

Skullwinder > Tortured Existence

Doom Whisperer > Conjurer's Closet

Ashnod's Altar > Altar of Dementia

Deadbridge Chant > Temur Sabertooth

Jarad's Orders > Panharmonicon

I want add Elvish Piper and Erratic Portal but i don't know what to cut ...

Hey, try adding Gurmag Swiftwing for evasion/haste and Phyrexian Dreadnought for the 1 mana +11/+11 on Lazav. Corpse Connoisseur could give you a hand too.

Ps: Remember to give feedback on the deck posted before yours on the help forum ;)

ByrdmanAK mentioned a large quantity of the cards I was going to suggest for you, so overall I'd say their post is a great place to start off. I'd like to add a few other tips of my own:

Some more reliable ways to get creatures into your graveyard would be pretty beneficial, since your graveyard is basically a (slightly slower) extension of your hand, especially with Meren as your commander. Buried Alive is a great option that's under $4 - three creatures for three mana is not a bad deal at all. Some creatures that pitch cards to your graveyard can also be extremely handy. Corpse Connoisseur is an Entomb on a body that you can Unearth for a second shot, and creatures like Satyr Wayfinder, Nyx Weaver and Splinterfright that mill you a few cards can load up your graveyard with juicy Meren targets.

As you move forward and you're able to start adding some more expensive cards (if you do decide you like the deck and start upgrading it), any dredge-enablers are great, especially when you start playing around with interactions such as with The Gitrog Monster.

If you're looking for some fun, underplayed cards, I might recommend Deadbridge Chant and Deathreap Ritual. Chant is a fun graveard-filler, and while it's a little bit of a pain to choose a card from your graveyard randomly it makes for some fun experiences. Deathreap Ritual is a pet card of mine, surviving years of modifications in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck; even though it doesn't fit with my overall theme of "creatures over non-creatures", I've just gotten way too much value off of it over all my games. Since you draw during the end step of every turn in which creatures died, you can end up getting some draw value during other players' turns as well as your own.

Hope this helps!
