Cruel Feeding


Strive — Cruel Feeding costs {2}{B} more to cast for each target beyond the first.

Any number of target creatures each get +1/+0 and gain lifelink until end of turn. (Damage dealt by a creature with lifelink also causes its controller to gain that much life.)

That kinda makes sense I guess, but surely something instant speed like Cruel Feeding, Mortal's Ardor or Swift Justice would be better in those slots? It becoming a really round-about Pacifism doesn't seem super useful. Something like Oust could be in those slots.

ExpletoryOrb on what am i doing

alright so here goes, so the cards to the left can be swapped with the ones to the right, it has the same or very similair effect but for a reduced mana cost etc.

Throttle -> Grasp of Darkness

Bloodtallow Candle -> Dismember

Whispers of Emrakul -> Hymn to Tourach

Painful Lesson -> Night's Whisper (there is also: Sign in Blood

Lethal Sting -> Victim of Night (there is also Go for the Throat)

Dutiful Return -> Ghoulcaller's Chant ? (its cheaper and will almost always be for a zombie? a lot cheeper but its your call.)

Abyssal Specter -> Hypnotic Specter

the next ones are cards i think you should strip, i will list them and then explain why:

Ruin Rat : you already have a few of these, and this isnt even a zombie. there are just better cards out there that arent expensive at all, (i'll give some suggestions further down the post)

Shambling Attendants : Just strictly bad, you dont want to play a 3/5 dude for 8 mana ever.

Cruel Feeding : its just pretty bad, the strive cost is very expensive just to +1/0 lifelink. dont use this unless you had something specific in mind that i didnt catch up on reading the list.

Duress and Divest : these never really do much, yes you get to pick away 1 card and see 1 hand but you will almost never hit anything especially good, only run this if you are planning to do a lot of 1v1 EDH.

Here are some suggestions of cards that are very cheap and are pretty good:

Empty the Pits

Zombie Apocalypse


Zombie Master

Nevinyrral's Disk

Couple ideas to make this even more brutal: -1 Swamp +1Altar's Reap, -3Cruel Feeding, +3 Innocent Blood, or keep Cruel feeding and move Shrivel to side? Forced sac on both sides makes the deck even more aggro! You could also make room by going -1 on Infernal Scarring.

This is bestial :)! I know you only have one Lord of Shatterskull, but wouldn't it be badass to stick Touch of Moonglove or Cruel Feeding on him and swing for massive RAGE? anyways, this is super swell. I've got some cows as well, but I think the strategies of the decks are quite diffrent, so I wouldn't suggest taking a look at it for inspiration... So instead I'll do it just because I'm egocentric like that! Horns twisted by hatred Tallyho!

have you thought about tossing in Painful Quandary?
also fun could be Memory Jar and Dictate of the Twin Gods with nekusar out. it reads, crack memory jar, each opponent takes 14 damage.
throw in a Whip of Erebos or Eternal Thirst/Cruel Feeding to give nekusar lifelink and suddenly gain 42 life!

Do you have the same sleeves as me? "mmm Brains"? lol, love them Zombies.

I tried the same route once with the Whip of Erebos but found I hated the "exile it at end step" and thus NEVER used it... especially with Zombies... if nothing else swap it for the Bows's in your sideboard. It also works against your 3x Colossus's, 4x Gravecrawler's, and the 4x Amalgam's...

If it is the Lifelink you want I'd try the route of something like Grotesque Mutation, Butcher's Glee, Cruel Feeding, or Cutthroat Maneuver... all at instant speeds.

Figured i'd mention a couple other thoughts for you....

I'm kinda surprised you have no +1/+1 for Zombies with a Diregraf Captain or Death Baron or Cemetery Reaper's (sideboard thought's)

a Blood Scrivener + Rooftop Storm = Fun With Zombies.

you have the Gravecrawler's .... Grimgrin, Corpse-Born?

and I will always mention these 2 for a Zombie deck without them Geralf's Messenger and Undying Evil, both are fun.

Good luck with the Zombies...

The way I play horobi is lots of targeting spells to clear the board, like Touch of Darkness and Cruel Feeding, and then a bunch of one drop targets. Aphotic Wisps Death Wind Disfigure Eye Gouge Lose Hope Tragic Slip Virulent Wound Cabal Trainee Shambling Goblin and so on. I also like Avatar of Woe, cause it's easy to get cheap with a deck like this.
