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.)

Mardu_Maniac on Replacing Increasing Ambition?

1 week ago

cuelix I did have Corpse Connoisseur before, but I took it out because it wasn't reanimatable... Any ideas that are power two or less so Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can bring them back?

These are the ones that come to mind when you say tutor on a creature. Connoisseur included because of the creature recursion granted by Alesha

ThatGuy4242 on Gisa and Geralf - Zombie Tribal Prototype EDH

1 week ago

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Despionnage on Gisa and Geralf's House of Horrors

3 weeks ago

After looking at this deck list, some suggestions I have are:

Nim Deathmantle, mainly because of the nice infinite zombie combo that comes with Grave Titan and Ashnod's Altar. Which also offers a nice spam of Fleshbag Marauder if needed.

I also run a Gisa and Geralf deck and was running Grimoire of the Dead and realized that it really didn't do a whole lot for me.

I would recommend Phyrexian Altar, there's so many possibilities with this card.

Another card I never had much luck with is Corpse Connoisseur. It's a nice idea but I could never get it to play well.

Here's my decklist if you want to take a look. 1000 Zombies

Mortiferus_Rosa on Meren toolbox Deck

1 month ago

Sorry for wall of text but I have a Meren Toolbox deck and here are some of my thoughts on what is good to use.

I would replace Shriekmaw with Bone Shredder. You can return it with Meren easier due to its lower CMC and it self sacrifices if you dont pay the echo cost (to make it easier to get into the graveyard).

Also, you already have Sidisi, Undead Vizier as a repeatable tutor card, and even Rune-Scarred Demon (which i think is inferior to Sidisi anyways), why also run Razaketh, the Foulblooded who has a ridiculously high CMC and requires sacrificing other creature and paying 2 life to search? A far better tutor that is easier to use is Yisan, the Wanderer Bard. More similar to Birthing Pod granted, but they go strait to the library and if you need to you can always sack Yisan to reset his counters. Entomb is also a fantastic tutor for this deck (as long as you arent planning on playing 1v1) and Corpse Connoisseur is Entomb on a creature.

Archfiend of Depravity and Massacre Wurm make for good boardwipes.

Mindslicer is great for shredding opponents hands.

Agent of Erebos is great for destroying opponents graveyards.

Spore Frog is a Fog on a stick. Reusuable with Meren on the field

You have half of a classic combo. Add Triskelion to the deck and you can get infinite damage with both him and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed

GrayAlchemyst on Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

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.

Funkydiscogod on Modern budget 1 Zombies

2 months ago

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.
