Death Baron Discussion

You can't have a zombie theme without +Grave Titan, but his inclusion depends on our agreed policy on non-zombie creatures (bc he is a giant creature type).
+Geralf's Mindcrusher seems like a good include only based on his power and ability to come back with more power and more random mill which could remove threats from The Survivor's decks. Is also dependent whether we want non-black zombies as this is IMO the best blue zombie available.
+Death Baron is one of the best zombie lords since it gives deathtouch and +1/+1 to zombies and skeletons. Survivors can't block with their big creatures as easily.
Coat of Arms is a rapidly scaling tribal artifact that will help The Horde to easily overwhelm The Survivors.
Noxious Ghoul is a zombie that I have been contemplating for my Grimgrin deck but his power is based on him and other zombies coming into play. So when this zombie enters the battlefield he will hose any 1/1 chump-blocking strategy. If this creature makes it through his attack, the next wave of incoming zombies next turn will do a random Black Sun's Zenith-ish ability against non-zombie creatures.
Another card I've been looking at for my deck and possibly for this one is Patriarch's Bidding. Assuming that we allow the horde enough intelligence to choose the right creature type (all horde choices are supposed to be as random as possible) this would be a good one sided mass recur. In the right situation it could possibly be better than Zombie Apocalypse since it doesn't make the zombies enter tapped. You don't want to have a turn of vulnerability to our newly risen brethren.

This is funny.

You can drop the Endless Ranks of the Dead, Butcher Ghouls, and Vile Rebirths. For Zombie aggro I'd suggest Stromgald Crusader, Highborn Ghoul, and Death Baron. Deathtouch and Intimidate are scary, b0ss. Also, Stillmoon Cavalier is really solid. Also, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Murder would do well to be Hero's Downfalls. I really like the Messengers, btw. +1

Depends on your budget with Death Baron.

The thing is, even if you recur every other zombie from your graveyard, I just don't see much of a point in casting him. 4 mana for a lord that can't block and dies to bolt? No, thanks. Literally every other zombie lord ever printed is cheaper (and better) than this guy. Death Baron is, Cemetery Reaper is, Lord of the Undead is, Diregraf Captain is. I don't see any reason to play that guy over any of those.

Death Baron is good but you don't need it in here since you don't go for class and only for mass. Focus on one thing. Lord of the Undead on the other hand is good since he can get you creatures back you need. The problem is that he can't give you back Ghoulcaller Gisa so I would drop him too.
Then you need card draw to keep the deck running. I would suggest Phyrexian Arena or Sign in Blood. More the first then the second. Necropotence would be even better but is really something you should be able to play with or it will kill you. If you feel confident try it out.
Volrath's Stronghold is good too. Play 2 of it so you have at least the chance to draw it. 1-timers are mostly bad in a deck unless you already have a 4-timer in your deck with a similiar ability and you want more of it.
Tragic Slip is good in a deck focusing on sacrifice but since you mainly focus on one specific sacirifice effect I would replace it with Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, or Doomblade for more consistency and a sure kill.
Fallen Ideal is a good idea but getting out a Carrion Feeder costs less and is even better. If you focus more on getting him and Ghoulcaller Gisa out with tutors and card draw it may be better since you can store it for later turns. But I would test the deck at first with it in. If you find it to be increasing your chances to make Ghoulcaller Gisa go big keep it. If not replace it.
I hope this helped. Greets MA.

The cards you will need are cards like Diregraf Captain, Diregraf Ghoul, Cemetery Reaper, and from there you can look into token generators like Endless Ranks of the Dead, Undead Alchemist, Quest for the Gravelord, or Wakedancer.
