Corpse Harvester Discussion

Paradox Haze seems pretty good with the god.
Overall, I would try to find some room for some synergistic mill. It really does feed your engine so well.
Siren of the Silent Song
Geth, Lord of the Vault
Lich Lord of Unx
Extract from Darkness
Mindcrank - combine with Bloodchief Ascension for combo goodness if you're into that
I also like adding the Fleshbag Marauder / Mimic Vat combo if both pieces are relevant, and they certainly would be here. Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a zombie.
And it is an awesome feeling getting the Gravecrawler // Corpse Harvester thing going. :)

I have had Corpse Harvester in the deck! I always go back and forth on whether or not I should reintroduce him to the zombie army...he's definitely good, albeit a little slow.

First, thank you for taking the time to evaluate my deck and offer suggestions. Second, get outta here with your Bontu the Glorified shit. Not havin' it! Thanks again for the bounty of suggestions, I definitely have some things to think about.
I like the milling aspect of my deck because many of the mill cards hit multiple opponents. Combat can be difficult to balance in this sense. I wanted to have an even balance of heavy swingers as well as the possibility to mill my opponents to death. The deck can usually pull off either tactic, depending on which is needed.
While you're right about maybe dropping Corpse Harvester, I'm not sure about replacing it with Liliana's Mastery. The card is neat, and it buffs zombies, but I think I might go with either a Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, or Death Baron (if it ever drops in price). Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is a sac outlet as well as a heavy hitter, so I'm leaning that direction at the moment. While some may think that Sadistic Hypnotist doesn't belong in the deck, I must say that I can't disagree more. I've had opponents scoop just from consistent usage of his abilities. He also assists in filling the graveyard and culling the opponents' boards if I have something like Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos out.
I'm leaning more toward Door of Destinies rather than Coat of Arms, that way only my guys get the buff. While Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic are both good cards, I'm not sure if theyre worth replacing something in the deck with. Vela the Night-Clad's life loss thing is amazing with a basic sac outlet. If I find a much better inclusion (likely something in Ixalan, I'm sure), I'll drop her then, but until then, she's gotten me out of enough sticky spots to warrant her inclusion.
Lastly, while I agree that Bone Splinters needs to be dropped, I'm not sure if Urza's Incubator is the card to take its place. The chosen card type would, of course, be zombies, but there arent many creatures at allzombie or notin the deck that are over 6 mana. I'm thinking about another removal spell or boardwipe in its place, if anything.
I'm on the fence about Thought Vessel, since I like cards being in my graveyard anyway, but only if they're creatures, and only if I'm ok with permanently exiling them for a copy. If theres another card that I should include that's either a synergy-promoting zombie or a sweet-ass mill card, I'll switch it for that.
Thanks again for taking the time to read and comment, I appreciate the suggestions!
PS: Bontu the Glorified CAN ROT IN HELL!

Hey, but Bontu the Glorified can be nice in this deck ;) (sorry, I just had to)
Nice deck, but I do have my doubts about the milling section. It feels like your deck s really fast, so why bother with the milling if you can have beaten your opponents senseless by turn 6 or 7 (and well before they are even close to lose to milling)? I know you want some targets for Scarab God...but still. Anyway. Things I would certainly replace are: Corpse Harvester expensive and you really don't need it but a Liliana's Mastery on the other hand. Same for Sadistic Hypnotist, replace it with Door of Destinies or Coat of Arms. Replace Vela and Thought Vessel for Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic. Finally: Bone Splinters for a Urza's Incubator. (And Bontu is not that bad in your deck ;) )

Ok, first off, your deck has 2 too many cards, you'll need to cut those. Secondly, I think you'll find you have too few lands to be consistent. Next, I believe there are better zombies. Here's a few. I don't know what your budget is, so some of these may be a bit pricey.
Other card suggestions.
Skullclamp If you have Gravecrawler, it's a 2 mana draw 2.
Dictate of Erebos A good way to keep opponents locked down.
Thornbite Staff Combined with Gisa, you can keep pumping out zombies at a MUCH faster rate
Coat of Arms The ultimate buff to a tribal deck.
Hope that helps!

I said I would get back to you on cuts and here they are...
Phyrexian Crusader, I have never gained any momentum from playing him in a non-infect deck. Unless you are pumping him and giving him double strike, he's not usually seen as a threat. Also, infect draws hate. When people see one infect card they assume you have others.
Adaptive Automaton, this seems like a cop-out. It's a vanilla tribal king that doesn't play into any particular strategy except buffs. I'd rather have something like Corpse Harvester or Unbreathing Horde on the draw in the late game.
Thassa, God of the Sea, great card in a lot of respects but the unblockable for a few creatures doesn't carry as far when you are attacking with a horde. For evasion, try Wonder, Eldrazi Monument, or Akroma's Memorial. For card advantage, try Rhystic Study, Graveborn Muse, or Disciple of Bolas.
