Diregraf Colossus Discussion

I definitely cut:

Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)

I'd probably cut:

Both Squees. I think they're too slow. Harvester of Souls Nim Deathmantle (unless you want to combo off) Aftershock

I'd suggest: Greater Gargadon Talisman of Indulgence (way better than the diamonds) Goblin Bombardment Yahenni, Undying Partisan Dark Prophecy

Thanks Kingsqueen! I had not considered Corpsejack Menace, but it's an interesting option. It only triggers the additional +1/+1 counter when a Diregraf Colossus or Unbreathing Horde enter the battlefield, while zombie lords always buff zombies and cost 1 less mana, so the Menace is probably not the most efficient choice for this build.

Thanks for the suggestions JohnnyBoyG!!! I added Become Immense, dropped the Shambling Remains, and streamlined the deck a bit. I think it runs a lot better now.

I want to include Graveyard Marshal, but its ability exiles a creature in my graveyard, which doesn't combo with Diregraf Colossus or Unbreathing Horde. I had the same problem with Shambling Remains.

Relentless Dead could help bring back a Colossus or Horde, but its ability requires it to die, so I'm conflicted about it.

Thanks DeviousPenguin666!! I'm conflicted about the ratio of Death Barons to Lord of the Undeads. The idea is to use the latter to return discarded Diregraf Colossus' and Unbreathing Hordes to my hand. I'll keep tinkering with the ratio.

I would cut Diregraf Colossus ... you are not running that much zombies.

Thanks GuyLJr! I've been experimenting with zombies for a while. I have a different build that runs less blue and no self-mill, and a sultai version. I realize that the Prized Amalgams are not as useful as I thought in this build. More likely than not, they are just vanilla 3/3s for 3. I removed them and added a couple Diregraf Colossus and Tidehollow Sculler.

I love playing zombies! I know it isn't a Zombie but Bloodghast would work well in this deck with most of the interaction (sac and enter battlefield triggers). Also I know you don't like Unbreathing Horde... Diregraf Colossus is similar but also pumps out tokens. Not sure how well it fits here but a fun card for your consideration.
