Cryptbreaker Discussion

spleen on Alex's Black Deck

Firstly, Carrion Beetles, Unworthy Dead and Plague Fiend are not modern legal, but are legal in legacy.

Your mana curve is a bit high- you may want to check out of some the zombies released in the Amonkhet expansion, as well as some other recent expansions eg Dread Wanderer, Miasmic Mummy, Cryptbreaker and Lord of the Accursed. You may also want to buff them with something like Liliana's Mastery (Lord of the Accursed also buffs your zombies)

Zombies is a fun deck to play and there's plenty of fun cards to choose from :)

Cryptbreaker instead of Blighted Bat

Plague Belcher instead of Binding Mummy

you need removal like Fatal Push Sinister Concoction and Never

Cryptbreaker is a great one drop for a zombie deck

bellz76 on Dark Salvation Zombie Tokens Help needed?

3 days ago

Right off the bat, I think any zombie deck should run 3 or 4 Dark Salvation. The card really is that good. I would also consider Diregraf Colossus and Cryptbreaker. They do all the things you want the deck to do... make tokens and draw cards.

You also need some instant speed removal. Grasp of Darkness or if you have the budget Fatal Push- or any combination of both.

I also feel that 19 land is not enough in a deck that wants to consistently see and cast a 5 drop. You'll probably want that to at least 21 or 22.

Zombies are pretty popular currently- you could probably find lots of different deck ideas or sources to use to help with it here in this site.

Hope this helps some.

What about B/G using G to ramp so you can maybe T3-4 Lili + Raz? Cryptolith Rite + zombie tokens provided by the Cryptbreaker... Sure there's other stuff you could toss in the mix.

I'm doing my best to restrain myself from brewing until all the spoilers are released, but I'm so fascinated by Razaketh, the Foulblooded + my second-favorite Standard planeswalker, Liliana, Death's Majesty. She can reanimate him for a t4/t5 8/8 Flample (Trying?) creature and feed him zombies to tutor up toolbox cards.

What do you think the best and most competitive shell would be for that interaction? (Not that it has to be PT-level.)

Possible shells:

What do y'all think? :)

Shad0wRaz0r on The More the Better - Scarab God Creature Control

Alright, I guess the idea came to me from my own Scarab God themed deck, but revolving mainly around zombies. However, another card I think that you could include is Cryptbreaker. If you create a large amount of zombie tokens, be it standard 2/2s or "eternalized" copies, you can use Cryptbreaker to draw lots of cards to complement the end of turn scrying from The Scarab God. Cryptbreaker can also act as a discard outlet for any madness cards or any cards you want in your graveyard, which you can then potentially revive with the second ability of the Scarab God.

If you look at Standard right now there's a deck that wins consistently with tokens, Zombies. Consider converting your deck into B/W Zombies with a main token theme. Wayward Servant can add a significant amount of life loss and life gain when duplicating Zombies tokens. Servant in combination with Zulaport Cutthroat would give you damage from both angles when Zombie tokens are created and when they die.

I suggest Zombies because they have a ridiculously good lord package right now with Lord of the Accursed and Liliana's Mastery. Both these cards give Zombie tokens a lot of reach. Because you care about making tokens Dark Salvation can pull double duty as a token maker and removal spell.

Possible List trying best to keep it budget (Untested):

I've included Cryptbreaker even though he is $4 a piece which might be out of your price range. He can be a constant Zombie token maker and a draw engine when using Zombies which is exactly what you want. Procession into Mastery does create a lot of power on the battlefield.

Good luck with your deck.
