Corpse Harvester Discussion
3 days ago
I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

I strongly recommend Corpse Harvester, who can repeatedly tutor for whatever zombies you want. I feel he deserves a place in any zombie-centric EDH deck. I'm surprised you aren't also running Lord of the Undead - he may not buff creatures into 4/4s like the Scarab God, but he can return your most useful zombies time and time again, rather than only once.
If you're interested in running more milling effects, you might also like Undead Alchemist - who, as it happens, also combos excellently with the Lich Lord of Unx.

The Scarab God and Lich Lord of Unx go together like peanut butter and jelly: he's basically a miniature version of the God. I also strongly recommend Corpse Harvester, who can repeatedly tutor for whatever zombies you want. Since you have some milling effects in play, you might also like Undead Alchemist - who, as it happens, also combos excellently with the Lich Lord. Unholy Grotto is also excellent as a cheap and hard-to-remove way to recycle your most useful creatures.
You might like Life's Finale as a sort of tutoring effect with the Scarab God. Not only is it a board wipe, which are much easier for zombies to come back from than most creatures, but it lets you pick up to three creatures that you can later reanimate with the Scarab God. It's like catalog shopping.

I hope you have the classics Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar. Then there are Wild-Field Scarecrow, Ruthless Knave, the bros Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate, Corpse Harvester if you have cool zombies. If you have some ways to sacrifice artifacts there's also things like Pentad Prism and Sphere of the Suns.

Thursday night report, so much mana!
Tonight, finally added Crypt Ghast (replaced Ivory Tower) as I also put in Cabal Stronghold. Wow, amazing! I mean, no duh, right? I had Crypt Ghast most of the game and untapped a turn or two with those newly acquired cards plus Caged Sun and Cabal Coffers. Mike was borrowing my Kynaios and Tyro of Meletis deck and had the Insurrection but that was effectively countered by my Sudden Spoiling. I untapped and attacked, eliminating Arvad the Cursed because Angela's top deck was revealed by Brendon's Daxos of Meletis techy Lantern of Insight to be Urza's Ruinous Blast. After a Corpse Harvester sacrifice, Sheoldred, Whispering One reanimated Gray Merchant of Asphodel for the win. I was drowning in mana for enough turns to have over 20 devotion.
Of course, the previous game was more ignominious as I used Sidisi, Undead Vizier to get Bojuka Bog for Tori's Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck rather than Cabal Coffers to further my own agenda. She was at a low enough life total I need not have done that. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder was then my final undoing as Tana, the Bloodsower had four swords equipped and enough tokens with a sac outlet to finish me off.

@WhichKing, allright that is a drastic change, I'll test it with a copied deck, to let it sink in before changing it for reel. The decks that I play against in my playgroup are a super fast Krenko, Mob Boss deck, a fast Edgar Markov deck and two other decks, which I both already can handle. I adapted my deck to play against those faster decks, hence the weenies, so I have a board state too. I do recognize the problems of my deck and that is draw and ramping into mana. I can live without tutoring, I love the randomness of games above "cheating" out a combo with tutors, but that is just me. I do have Corpse Harvester and soon I'll add Sidisi, Undead Vizier, but that is as far as I go for "tutor-esque" cards in the deck. With the removal cards I was able to buy some time and I later brought back strategic cards with Phyrexian Reclamation and Zombie Apocalypse. Though I did win with the deck as it is, I admit it is slow, lacking ramp and draw. Thanks again for this new insight, like your deck too by the way.

Hello there! I like what you did to your deck. I also went went down that road on buying a per made deck and making it better a lot better. There are some cards I would suggest. The first one is Filth combo with Buried Alive or Jarad's Orders witch you have. Second is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth but it is expensive cheap fix is Zombie Trailblazer. Third Corpse Harvester and or Necrotic Ooze they are fun cards in this deck
