Corpse Harvester Discussion
2 days ago
Seems pretty much fine to me. Not quite sure why Sire of Stagnation is in there, but he works as a beatstick. Maybe a few more ways to protect your commander but I'm not sure what to cut. Maybe cut Corpse Harvester, he doesn't seem that great.

I'm probably going to make it more consistent. I would probably run another Corpse Harvester, another Stronghold Assassin and a playset of Death Barons at the very least. The only reason there are a. Unchanged of one offs is because those are the cards I've had on hand or saw in cards hops that I could afford.

The deck has a solid skeleton, though you may have gone a little over-board on the sacrifice/reanimation. If that's the road you're bent on taking, then I'd at least recommend a Nevinyrral's Disk and an Oblivion Stone, seeing as without them (or similar effect), you're dead to a Rest in Peace. Call to the Kindred doesn't do it for me either. Without Conspiracy out, you only run 14 actual zombies, so your odds of whiffing are real. On that topic, more creatures (specifically zombies) may benefit you anyway if your main plan is to "run people over with them." Thankfully, you've chosen a tribe well-stocked with playable monsters. Empty the Pits strikes me as too anti-synergistic to really get decent value out of. You could jam a bunch of off-color fetch lands to help fill the yard with chaff, but even then it still may not pull its weight. I understand that you can discard in chunks with Forgotten Creation and also produce infinite mana, but that's a four-card combo, which is a rather tall order to justify the prohibitive costs of the card. As you already run Ashnod's Altar and Grave Titan, you could include Nim Deathmantle to create the same effect (infinite zombies and infinite mana), while also adding in a "reanimation" spell and a means to change a key creatures type to zombie (to cheat Noxious Ghoul and Call to the Grave).
A few other individual card upgrades: Rune-Scarred Demon is a fine guy, but Sidisi, Undead Vizier costs two less, fits the tribe, and even allows you to sacrifice yet more stuff. Likewise, Solemn Simulacrum is a value house, but Corpse Harvester yields greater card advantage and effect while being a zombie. Geth, Lord of the Vault may be do a reasonable Beacon of Unrest impersonation for you.I'm always glad to see other zombie players, so best of luck in your conquests. If you get ever stuck or can't figure something out, feel free to message me or check out my list. Cheers, and God bless.- McDeity

- Diregraf Captain
- Rooftop Storm
- Diregraf Colossus
- Zombie Apocalypse
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Ancient Excavation
- Unbreathing Horde
- Forgotten Creation
- Corpse Harvester
- Graf Harvest
- Vengeful Dead

All options I posted are budget options. The more expensive cards I left ut for now.

Pontiff of Blight does fit in your commander colors as . Also have you considered Zombie Trailblazer, Deathmark Prelate, Empty the Pits, Grave Defiler, Havengul Runebinder, Call to the Grave, Corpse Harvester, Necromaster Dragon, Noxious Ghoul, Gempalm Polluter, Grave Titan, Vengeful Dead, Custodi Lich, Scourge of Nel Toth, Corpse Augur, Crypt Ghast, Raving Dead, Lim-Dul's Vault, Patriarch's Bidding, or Westvale Abbey Flip.

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.
Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.
Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.
that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

Rooftop Storm Do it!
Crow of Dark Tidings, Mindwrack Demon, Stinkweed Imp, can help you throw other shit into your graveyard. Sidisi, Undead Vizier tutor that is a zombie. Crypt of Agadeem, Living Death. Corpse Harvester. Forgotten Creation. Mortivore. Havengul Runebinder. Nephalia Drownyard. Haunted Fengraf.

I'm not one to like zombie decks or theme decks but I like this deck. Anyway some suggestions: Agent of Erebos and Withered Wretch for graveyard hate; Apprentice Necromancer, Relentless Dead, and Balthor the Defiled for recursion; Blood Scrivener and Corpse Augur for card draw; Cabal Interrogator to help fuel Waste Not and further disrupt your opponents hand; Corpse Harvester and Corpse Connoisseur because they're both good. If you're looking for suggestions on what to cut I'd suggest: Walking Corpse, Shambling Ghoul, Rancid Rats, and Diregraf Ghoul don't really do anything besides attack and block; Liliana's Indignation because it doesn't seem like there are enough creatures to make it worthwhile; I'm not sure whether or not you need lifegain(if you do ignore these next two suggestions) but Demon's Horn and Whip of Erebos seem like they could come out because the lifegain doesn't look like it's relevant in this deck and zombies generally prefer recursion where they don't get exiled at the end of turn because they usually have so many other ways to get themselves back; You don't seem to have enough sac outlets to really abuse Dictate of Erebos; and I honestly think you could cut yourself back to 37 lands and maybe drop a basic swamp.
Anyway +1 from me.
