Also late Diregraf Colossus isn't a bad draw if it's more to late it starts off as a 2/2 but if you have lilianas mastery or dark salvation and some dead zombies it'll be +1/+1 for each in your yard it'll come out huge and an immediate threat

Any reason for not bringing Gravecrawler?

Also, Diregraf Colossus is not a good 4-of. You never really want it on your first hand, and drawing 2 is just bad.

eulogy on How much combo is too much? *HELP NEEDED*

yeah, the combo shines if you include Grave Pact / Grave Betrayal / Dictate of Erebos.another combo piece to this: Diregraf Colossus. endless zombies incoming.on the other side, if you can pull the combo off with your Blood Artist / Zulaport Cutthroat, you instantly win the game.I play 38 lands and 3 artifacts that create mana. In my case it's enough if I don't draw really bad.If you want to cut smthn, I would cut Bontu the Glorified. It's a sac outlet but for real.. it's not a really good one.Ever After in addition is a really good spell to get two extra creatures out of your graveyard.Lim-Dul the Necromancer can maybe be a good addition too.

Unfortunately while Gravecrawler would be amazing for this deck, both it and Cryptbreaker and beyond the budget. Graf Harvest doubles up on the menace that Lord of the Accursed provides and the exile mechanic would be counter-productive to both the Liliana's Elite and the Diregraf Colossus.

Drown in Sorrow looks like a winner. The zombies should be larger than 2/2 and even if they are not it feeds the graveyard.

Thanks Minihorror!

I did my first ever FNM tonight and tried the deck. It kicked butt. 3-1, and the match I lost was super close.

I definitely need to practice with the sideboards. And I guess I didn't play the deck right. First match was against GR Tron (I think). So I think I just did well first round and shut it down quick. Second round I brought in more removal spells, but I have no idea what to cut. So I cut Dread Wanderer for Never / Return and Murder. I still won, but barely. I should have cut the [Fatal Push]. Someone explained to me the reason for the Dread Wanderer is synergy with Diregraf Colossus and it's a perfect card to discard with the CryptKeeper...

So What do I cut if I want to fit in the vehicles or Lilianas. One guy had a decent UW Allies deck. He was the one that beat me. What would you cut to make the deck work against that? I assume it would need the artifacts in there for their flying?

I put together the typical Mono Black Zombie deck to start playing at my local FNM and Standard Showdowns. Would someone please help explain the deck tech to me, especially the sideboard? I've never really played standard, and I'm not familiar with the meta at the local shops. I'm an admitted novice, but I've been playing about 2 months, mostly commander.

Here's the deck list:

4 Cryptbreaker

4 Diregraf Colossus

4 Dread Wanderer

1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

4 Lord of the Accursed

4 Relentless Dead

4 Dark Salvation

3 Fatal Push

3 Grasp of Darkness

4 Liliana's Mastery

4 Ifnir Deadlands

19 Swamp

2 Scavenger Grounds


1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

1 Grasp of Darkness

1 Aethersphere Harvester

2 Liliana, the Last Hope

2 Never / Return

4 Transgress the Mind

1 Skysovereign, Consul Flagship

2 Scrapheap Scrounger

1 Murder

I have Liliana, Death's Majesty in there instead of Liliana, the Last Hope. How crucial is The Last Hope to make the deck work? I just didn't want to drop $45 on 2 cards that rotate out in 7 weeks haha. I can use the other Lilianas for commander.And other things I can sideboard are Westvale Abbey // Ormendahl, Profane Prince, Torment of Hailfire, Abolisher of Bloodlines  Flip, and Plague Belcher.

Would appreciate the help. Thanks!
