Diregraf Captain Discussion

GoldenAgeBatman on Need Advice for Zombie Tribal: ...

I'm torn between Varina, Lich Queen and Athreos, God of Passage .

The former would grant me access to Rooftop Storm , Diregraf Captain and Undead Alchemist .

The latter would allow for a simpler manabase and still be powerful enough with reanimation synergies (e.g. Oversold Cemetery , Debtors' Knell , etc.).

Granted, I could have the best of both worlds and have Athreos, God of Passage within an Esper deck.

Either way I'm looking for a fun, thematic core for the living impaired.

Hey, you seem to have a second Diregraf Captain in your main. :)

I second the comment on Diregraf Captain; it's a great card that will get you more value out of your zombies, moreso your fliers since they have evasion. If it were me I'd cut some combination of Wailing Ghoul/Armored Skaab.

As for your sideboard, I'd include some hand disruption for things your deck normally can't handle like Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Scapeshift, Ad Nauseam, the list goes on and on. Thoughtseize and Duress are great cards to get rid of these problematic cards.

Do you think I should replace Thought Scour with Dream Twist? I'm worried about going down on creatures because it's hard for me to cast Skaab Ruinator. What do you think I should replace with Diregraf Captain? Thanks for your advice!

Diregraf Captain is what you need, friend! Also, more self-mill (especially on spells, not creatures). You’ll need to fuel Delve, and the Ruinator, and what you’ve got doesn’t look like enough.

That means more Thought Scour, more Dream Twist, maybe even Dredge cards like Darkblast and Dakmor Salvage.

If you are looking for more ways to turn creature types in to zombies then Arcane Adaptation is right up your alley. Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher are excellent ways to punish opponents for your zombies dying, and a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar or Altar of Dementia would make sure this happens often. Undead Warchief is another anthem effect for your zombies while also making cheaper if Rooftop Storm is not in play. Death Baron coupled with Whip of Erebos and Bident of Thassa is just downright mean.

I love zombies! and this deck is basic which means its not to hard for ANYONE WITH BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF MAGIC CAN PICK IT UP AND PLAY.

Some suggestions are Call to the Grave for removal can help get rid of pesky creatures your opponent controls making them sac them! One of my favorite non-zombie zombie support cards Grave Titan makes token and hes a beat-stick as it is. Liliana's Reaver is an awesome zombie that if left unchecked will cause your friends lots of misery!

if you want to add blue to spice things up you'll have access to counterspells along with one of my favorite zombie lords Diregraf Captain along with a decent flyer which zombies normally don't have in Siren of the Silent Song who helps get cards out of your opponents hands and if you like the effect of Grimoire of the Dead can help you fill the yard with lots of targets for mass zombification!!!!
