Death Baron Discussion

Zeezee on Black Zombie Horde!

what creature to replace tho? i really like the Lord of the Undead and Death Baron as my 3 drop buff zombies, the Diregraf Colossus provides amazing field and strong synergy, the Stillmoon Cavalier i suppose isn't adding to the synergy, but is an excellent card on his own, getting very strong from what i already have there, and attack through with protection or flying and buff for big damage. the Diregraf Captain does make the opponent not want to kill my creatures as much i suppose, or they are forced to and lose a life for it. definitely see where he could be very good, i guess i could playtest him in, see how it goes. Give me your opinion on what i should replace to add him in?

Thank you for the suggestions..!!! I 've only began playing again in the past year after an almost a 20 year lay-off so i've yet to aquire some of the suggested cards as of yet. I did add Death Baron and i hope to add a Lord of the Undead as soon as i can pick one up. As for the Dimir, i'm already running a Dimir Zombie Tribal so i wanted to give Orzhov a go just for the effect that Teysa grants when sacing cards to Gisa...Token Overload..!!!

Well, I think running the Orzhov Signet instead of the Orzhov Keyrune might help. Dimir might actually be a bit better or even Grixis as it gives you Thraximundar and everything red has to offer (hasty zombies!). Zombie wise, Death Baron, Syphon Flesh, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Vengeful Pharaoh, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Corpse Harvester which seems really nice with your commander, Grimoire of the Dead, and Helldozer. Land wise, City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Unholy Grotto seem nice. By the way, you have two Ghoulcaller's Chants.

Zombies are going to be a slow deck but they're tough to put down which is why they are amazing. If you're building a casual 60 card deck then you have access to some really amazing tech.

So you'll want some turn 1 plays. Some of the cards to consider are:

Dark Ritual

These are either the best one drop zombies or give you access to threats higher on the curve.

Turn 2 Relentless Dead is probably your best zombie then. If you don't have access to him, then you can leave than mana up for removal spells or use something like Animate Dead and get your big threat out from a T1 Entomb.

Turn 3 is when zombies get going. The vast majority of zombie lords are 3 drops so you have your pick:

Lord of the Undead
Zombie Master
Diregraf CaptainDeath Baron

Another powerful 3 drop zombie is Geralf's Messenger and he can help lead to a big win with another major zombie player to consider: Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

These are a few tips or ideas to consider. Zombies have access to so much so you can really build them in a number of ways. Good luck!

Looks a fun deck but you're definitely missing most of the best zombies magic has to offer. Try Gravecrawler, Diregraf Captain, Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, Lich Lord of Unx, Vedalken Ghoul and Grave Titan.

Hey there, Becarri, thanks for checking the deck out.

To answer your questions:

Death Baron is going to be the better of the two, hands down. Especially now with the inclusion of Collected Company. Surprise defense or offense with all the deathtouches!

Cellar Door...I think it's just too slow for this deck. You want to pressure your opponent here, not tap three mana in HOPES of getting a 2/2. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet can be a better engine for zombies, not the Cellar Door.

If you want to throw in Grave Titan, you'll likely need another land. Sometimes I finish games with just 4-5 lands. I think it would be risky. Powerful, but there's other power in this deck. Once you start playing it, you'll see. Bunch of 1-drops powered by some zombie Lords and you're swinging heavy quickly.

I prefer Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek against control instead of Dash Hopes, especially since you give the opponent the choice.

Grave Pact? Sure, take out a Relentless Dead and throw in a Grave Pact.

Gravecrawler, Geralf's Messenger , Death Baron and Lord of the Undead are cards that would be good in this deck.

Death Baron is likely better but he costs a bomb to buy so Cemetery Reaper is the go to guy!
