Diregraf Colossus Discussion
18 hours ago
Right off the bat, I think any zombie deck should run 3 or 4 Dark Salvation. The card really is that good. I would also consider Diregraf Colossus and Cryptbreaker. They do all the things you want the deck to do... make tokens and draw cards.
I also feel that 19 land is not enough in a deck that wants to consistently see and cast a 5 drop. You'll probably want that to at least 21 or 22.
Zombies are pretty popular currently- you could probably find lots of different deck ideas or sources to use to help with it here in this site.
Hope this helps some.

If you look at Standard right now there's a deck that wins consistently with tokens, Zombies. Consider converting your deck into B/W Zombies with a main token theme. Wayward Servant can add a significant amount of life loss and life gain when duplicating Zombies tokens. Servant in combination with Zulaport Cutthroat would give you damage from both angles when Zombie tokens are created and when they die.
I suggest Zombies because they have a ridiculously good lord package right now with Lord of the Accursed and Liliana's Mastery. Both these cards give Zombie tokens a lot of reach. Because you care about making tokens Dark Salvation can pull double duty as a token maker and removal spell.
Possible List trying best to keep it budget (Untested):
- 4x Cryptbreaker
- 4x Wayward Servant
- 4x Zulaport Cutthroat
- 2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
- 3x Lord of the Accursed
- 2x Diregraf Colossus
- 1x Bontu the Glorified
- 4x Anointed Procession
- 4x Liliana's Mastery
- 4x Dark Salvation
- 3x Grasp of Darkness
- 2x Gisa's Bidding
- 25x Lands
I've included Cryptbreaker even though he is $4 a piece which might be out of your price range. He can be a constant Zombie token maker and a draw engine when using Zombies which is exactly what you want. Procession into Mastery does create a lot of power on the battlefield.
Good luck with your deck.

I suggest Undead Alchemist. It gives all your zombies milling power, and creates zombie tokens. Also if you're using a zombie deck, you need to have Rooftop Storm, there's no better feeling than being able to cast your army of the dead for free.
You could also possibly add Havengul Lich allowing you to bring back both yours and your opponents' creatures.
Lastly, Diregraf Colossus, in my opinion, should be in any zombie deck, every zombie you cast gives you an additional zombie token which is a pretty good deal.

If you want to go competitive, here is how I'd do it:
+1 Dread Wanderer
-1 Bontu (too slow)
-2 Festering Mummy (worse than the other 1-drops)
-2 Gravedigger (too slow, weak stats)
-3 Plaguebelcher (is kind of OK, but most of the time it's just a 3/2 Menace)
-2 Tattered Mummy (weak stats, you don't need Burn effects)
+2 Fatal Push
-4 Puzzleknot (way too slow, no real synergy with lifedrain or artifacts)
-4 Battle at the Bridge (not enough artifacts, Dark Salvation is waaaay better here)
-1 Stir the Sands (it's just not that impactful)
If you have more Planeswalkers in you local area, Never/Return is good. If you have a lot of vehicle decks, Grasp of Darkness is so much better, but I don't know that. Cradle of the Accursed is OK, but Westvale Abbey Flip has more power to it. Wouldn't run more than 2-3 colorless lands though, the rest pure Swamps.

This deck seems very cool, but there are some cards you might want to add on the black zombies side you probably should add. I recommend adding 4 Relentless Dead and replace Haunted Dead with it. I recommend that you replace the Prized Amalgam with a Metallic Mimic or a Diregraf Colossus. These would definitely make the most of your zombies for a cheaper mana cost and can help your board a bit. I do recommend putting fatal push in your deck.

Thanks for the feedback! I was actually thinking of sideboarding a couple of the cards you mentioned. I know Diregraf Colossus and all the other Innistrad cards are a staple at the moment, but I am trying to keep it limited to after the rotation hits in September. Also, all those cards went way up in price. Haha. I'm lucky I got Dread Wanderer when he was still cheap. I am trying to decide between Doomed Dissenter or Tattered Mummy, however.
