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.)

Corpse Connoisseur Discussion

May I recommend putting in one silly stupid bomb to win the game for use with Corpse Connoisseur like Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. Also the cards with value from the graveyard are automatically much better. May I reccomend putting in Meren of Clan Nel Toth because she is at least really good yard to hand recursion, and at best very very good reanimation.

Some card that might be worth considering:

Tidehollow Sculler because it is a modern staple.

Stillmoon Cavalier even thought it's pretty pricey, it dodges a lot of modern removal.

Embalmer's Tools makes graveyard abilities more amusing.

Necromancer's Covenant, because it gives you zombies, pumps up all your zombies, and hates on graveyard, or cashes in on all the creatures you haven't embalmed.

Corpse Connoisseur can get creatures for you to embalm/eternalize/unearth.

Dregscape Zombie and Rotting Rats might also be good for their unearth abilities.

I don't know. I'm just brainstorming.

Got a Couple of suggestions for ya. Try out Dictate of Erebos, Corpse Connoisseur and Zulaport Cutthroat.

Today's Update:

Added Corpse Connoisseur and Terminate.

Cut Realmwright and Rapid Hybridization.

Connoisseur is a Wizard who I overlooked; it's pretty good with the reanimation theme because it has unearth. Putting Wizards into the graveyard is what this deck does making unearth great. Connoisseur is mana expensive compared to Buried Alive, but having this same effect with a Wizard is needed. It's unearth cost is only four mana and I can eminence it when unearthed. Realmwright is fine, but I've found that I don't need him. He's completely lackluster if I don't need his land ability.

Since adding Gamble I've also added more red lands sources to have a better chance of casting it early because of this I've added Terminate. It's such a good removal spell and I feel the manabase can now support it.

Cards on the chopping block are: Sea Scryer, Stonybrook Banneret and Victimize.

What no Blightsteel Colossus, Phyrexian Obliterator or Metalwork Colossus. Also might wanna try Entomb, Buried Alive and Corpse Connoisseur to help throw things into the bin. Though if you dont wanna add cards try Hermit Druid, Survival of the Fittest and Fauna Shaman.

I'd also play Corpse Connoisseur as a body blocker who can also tutor a cage target.

Thank you for your response, Corpse Connoisseur is indeed a good option I will definitely use.

The other 2 you mentioned I still have somewhere and go in there too.

I doubt if this is the way I want to play the deck.Aura spells are cool but do not know if it fits this deck.

I recently did Grave Pact and Attrition in the deck and believe that it is a better direction.

This is my first zombie deck that I've built.

Have you considered Corpse Connoisseur? It makes for help you grab a particular creature for you to resurrect later. Victimize and Buried Alive may get help with some recursion and help speed things along. Phyrexian Reclimation might also fit the theme. You may want to consider some sac outlets to work with Dictate of Erebos. Hope that helps.
