Corpse Harvester Discussion

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.

No Mercy, it seems like this is the only purely defensive card here. Maybe remove for a sac outlet or a dedicated mill. Call to the Grave seems like it would better suit this slot.

Dark Ritual never works out well enough in EDH. Try these out for ramp instead: Burnished Hart, Phyrexian Tower, Crypt Ghast, Ashnod's Altar, Black Market, and Crypt of Agadeem.

Another notable is Corpse Harvester. Sac a zombie token and put a zombie card and swamp in your hand.

I think every token deck should have access to Skullclamp and this is especially true for zombie token tribal because of the amount of sacrificing you would likely include. With that said, Gravecrawler can be really busted in a build like this especially when you have Grimgrin, Corpse-Born in play.

If you're going to run a large counter suite then I'd suggest Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall, and Snapcaster Mage.

Other cards I would recommend: Liliana, Death's Majesty, Liliana, Heretical Healer, Plague Belcher, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Fleshbag Marauder, Entomb, Tragic Slip, Pongify, Go for the Throat, Grave Betrayal, and Attrition.

I'll swing by again later and make some recs on other cuts.

Trust me, any zombie-centric EDH would love the inclusion of Corpse Harvester. He's a reusable tutor for whatever fits the situation, and even guarantees you a land drop each time! Slaughter is a good choice in EDH, as the buyback cost is quite affordable, and you might like a second Grave Pact in the form of Dictate of Erebos.

I am shocked to see a zombie EDH deck running without Corpse Harvester!

I like your list. In my 20 years of playing I have always had a Zombie deck in my collection. My current list is here at The dead may walk it plays pretty similiar to yours. One card i would suggest is Grave Defiler it lets you refill your hand and get more dudes to play. One thing i dont currently use but you could try is Corpse Harvester to search for lords or whatever you need at the time. Another card i used to play a lot is Shepherd of Rot back in the day when i played things like Sangrophage and such to play a quick aggro game. Hopefully that helps in some way.

Whoah first time anyones made suggestions on any of my decks,so i'll do my best to go over why i've made many of the decisions I've made.

First off my plan is a mix of damage and mill using mill in order to steal from an opponents graveyard with the cards Geth, Lord of the Vault ,Bone Dancer,and the big one Hedonist's Trove, plus wanting my opponents to have a large graveyard to make Consuming Aberration big makes my amount of graveyard hate somewhat small with only Bojuka Bogas a full grave exile and Crypt Incursion getting rid of all creatures and serve as my only real source of life gain.

as for Corpse Harvester i currently have 3 non specialized tutors though i may consider it over Sidisi, Undead Vizier due to it being reusable.

I may look for a place for Forgotten Creation as my card draw isn't perfect.

As for reanimation i have several reusable reanimation sources and a creature that can be recurred at any time namely Gravecrawler.

I have considered Soulless One but i feel i don't need both it and Consuming Aberration and i simply think the aberration is better(although i may look for a place for it,it is in my maybe board for a reason).

As for Dread Summons i have tried to avoid self milling as i lack artifact,enchantment and land recursion outside of Psychic Spiral

Finally I unfortunately can't play Crypt Ghast as it has white mana in its color identity and therefore can't be used with either my current commander or your suggestion of Phenax,God of Deception .

Thanks for your suggestions I really,genuinely appreciate them but i won't be able to use most of them for some of the reasons above. I'll make a more elaborate description explaining my deck and it's stratagems in the future.

But for now thanks for the feedback and have a fantastic day.

If mill s your target Phenax, God of Deception might be a better general. here are some cards that aren't in your maybe list that might help with milling and keep the zombie theme.

Agent of Erebos - graveyard hate

Corpse Harvester - tutor for Undead Alchemist, best mill card in the deck

Forgotten Creation - card draw (my deck has a heavy reanimation theme, might not work for your deck

Relentless Dead - reanimation

Soulless One - ultimate zombie horde

Dread Summons - Mill + zombie tokens

Crypt Ghast - not a zombie but doubling up black mana doesnt hurt.
