Soldcastro on Gisa and Geralf Sibling Rivalry

pokejerk20 Don't mind it.
I'm also trying to low the price of my deck, so no Death Baron, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed or Phyrexian Altar for now...
If you can, take a look at my deck too.
Any suggestions are welcome.

Here's way too long of a list of suggestions now that I know you're interested in Changeling Scarecrows.

If you have any more questions, I should have eaten my supper by then. Best of luck!

Disclaimer: I don't play Modern. Only EDH. That said, lords like Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead and Diregraf Captain with fast creatures like Gravecrawler, Butcher Ghoul and the new Cryptbreaker can cause a lot of damage. Anathemancer, with all the nonbasics people play can hurt people as well. And I hear Geralf's Messenger is a card that's played in Modern. Then there's a new one, Diregraf Colossus which generates more Zombies. All of these cost 3 mana or less.

But then again, I don't play Modern, so I don't know if this is good enough ;)

Lanzo493 on choosing a new commander!

The scarecrow king loves his changelings. With tons of changelings you can get the best of all the lord cards. You've got your Death Baron, your Harabaz Druid and Elvish Archdruid as well as Wirewood Channeler, Captivating Vampire, Gravespawn Sovereign, Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Grave Sifter, Knight Exemplar, Call to the Kindred, and, my favorite, Utvara Hellkite. Also, Rooftop Storm sounds really fun, especially when paired with Gisa and Geralf or Haakon, Stromgald Scourge.

Sorry for the belated reply post.

pettit: Compelling Deterrence could make its way in here in the future, perhaps. Gempalm Polluter and Lich Lord of Unx are better for a more token based approach.

Graveblade: so far, I haven't had any problems with Graveborn Muse. If I do find she's problematic, I'll add in lands like High Market.

theConspiracy: while I have no doubts that Death Baron is a good card, I do not think it would be very effective for my deck as it is. It will be making debut in the sideboard.

LordGanondorf &Athraithe: Fixed both points in the description. Thank you for letting me know about those inconsistencies.

To everyone else, thank you so much for your kind words and support.

The Relentless Sound of Silence is my modern attempt at zombies, i've found Victim of Night to be superior to Go for the Throat because it hits tron/affinity in addition to almost every creature. Also as a fun sidenote Nameless Inversion triggers Diregraf Colossus

zombie lords like Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron and given the number of mulitcolored cards Grixis Grimblade may be an option, as is Geralf's Messenger (wins games)

if you wanted to go a more control variant, i could see something along the lines of a Waste Not/discard/remand variant of zombies using Cemetery Reaper and Cryptbreaker.

I second that. You could probably remove Undead Warchief and maybe a Death Baron for 2-3 copies

Death Baron. Even though it's pricey, it's good. Very good. That's why it's 20 bucks.
