MurderForBrunch ~ Thanks!

Im trying to cram as much as I can into this, but there are too much stuff to fit an 60 card deck. But you seem to forget that Death Baron gives all my creatures deathtouch allready with the zombiemode on Arcane Adaptation exept itself. And yes, Judith, the Scourge Diva with it is rather filhy. But the Arcane Adaptation (zombie) type might also be usefull if you Liliana +1/-2.

Otherwise you dont really have much use for skeletons. Zombie, Goblin or Deamon are required for a combowin afterall.

But feel free to tinker with this, all it seem to lack is a way to get back enchantments/lily from the graveyard in case you mill them or something. And Im really trying to make Awaken the Erstwhile into the maindeck, but it seems more of an sideboard dream.

We will see how this ends up ^^

I really like where this deck is heading. And I didn't get a chance to review every comment, but here it goes.

My main issue with the synergy here is Bone Dragon . Exiling 7 other cards to bring him back seems steep. For the most part he still seems worth running with the addition of Death Baron . Im just curious how that card plays out in this deck for you? You only have 7 total spells, so you would be relying on losing a lot of creatures to bring him back without Gravedigger .

I've been out of the game for 2 years, so I apologize if I missed something. Just curious for your input!

I love the list, this deck looks awesome. I'll definitely try it out! For some reason when I think of Aristocrats I always go to some kind of Weenie Aggro with recursion, sac outlets and a Blood Artist. I'll try something like this in the new standard.

However, this seems a totally different approach more combo-centric sacrifice type deck. I was thinking that a cool line would be naming Skeleton with Arcane Adaptation with a Death Baron in play. You don't get as much synergies as with Zombie, but you can give Death Baron Deathtouch with his own ability!

In general, awesome list! I'll peep it time to time, to see how it evolves! :D

imsocool1234 Thanks!

Have been thinking on it, but the cards I have a hard time to evaluate in numbers is Death Baron, Midnight Reaper, Radical Idea and Lazav, the Multifarious. It helps with digging and have a "trick" but makes Stitcher's Supplier less usefull.

I've been working on a Zombie/Graveyard deck of my own and it's cool to see different cards than I've been using. Death Baron and Lord of the Accursed can be good with a lot of Zombies if you haven't seen those yet.

Cutting the Prized Amalgams for 4x Death Barons and cutting the Butcher Ghouls to bump the 3x of zombies to 4 seems good to me, you can cut blue in favor of Stony Silence, Knight of Autumn, Assassin's Trophy, Remorseful Cleric, and Eidolon of Rhetoric/Damping Sphere

Holding up counterspells seems like it conflicts with the goal of dropping zombies and it would tax your manabase a lot less since your only maindeck blue card is Prized Amalgam and a vanilla 3/3 that only recurs if you have a Gravecrawler in the yard feels iffy to begin with without ways to mill it quickly, I really like the idea of the deck!

I love mono-b zombie aggro decks - I think you've included a ton of the best cards available but I have some suggestions to improve the list.

Death Baron is a great way to buff all your zomblers and gives some great keywords as well. I consider this card a must have for any zombie tribal deck.

Dread Wanderer Since we are always an aggro deck, more one drop creatures are better than expensive enchantments like Endless Ranks of the Dead. Plus it has built in recursion making Ghoulcaller's Chant unnecessary!

Lord of the Accursed lets us make our zomblers hard to block for a turn 4 or 5 swing for the win! Value!

Diregraf Ghoul more 1 drops and a great body is always wanted by this deck! Zomblers!

Plague Belcher is a great way to turn dying zomblers into value.

Cemetery Reaper Probably the worst zombie lord but still, we are a zombie tribal deck and we love lords!

Overall I like your deck list. My best advice is to load up on more zombies and try to limit the tech and utility cards in favor of running more zombies, that way we can hit our curve more consistently and always have creatures to play.

I noticed you took out Skeleton Archer by reading the comments. When I wanted to play zombies I wanted to play Skeleton Archer because Death Baron gives him deathtouch so when Skeleton Archer enters it does 1 damage to something killing it making him a Skeleton Ravenous Chupacabra.
