After some testing I noticed that Diregraf Colossus was a bit slow, so I cut one of them and a land to make room for some Diregraf Ghoul s to help lower the curve to a point where 22 lands seems fine.

Gravecrawler Seems like it is just better than your 1 drops as it can come back with Diregraf Ghoul and Geralf's Messenger

Hey, I'm back again! Carrion Feeder is legal in Modern now and it's a waaaaay better card than Diregraf Ghoul (especially alongside Gravecrawler ), so I suggest you replace them with it.

Carrion Feeder is an amazing card with Gravecrawler and Geralf's Messenger and is just good in general. I recommend you add 4 of them in place of 4 Diregraf Ghoul / Dreadmalkin .

LordBlackblade on Why do red cards have ...

In my experience, this clause on cards isn't designed as an advantage, but rather a balancing/flavor choice. The idea behind it is that red is so aggressive that it will entirely neglect defense in favor of offense. As a balancing mechanic, its usually found on cards that R&D considers to produce too much value for red ( Goblin Rabblemaster ) or would be too efficient otherwise ( Akoum Firebird ). Usually red wants to attack anyway, so this "drawback" can sometimes be completely irrelevant.

A similar clause to consider is zombies that enter tapped. From a flavor standpoint, they enter tapped because they're shambling and slow. From a balance standpoint it let's you print things like Diregraf Ghoul which would be overpowered as a vanilla 2/2 for one otherwise.

I would probably run Dread Wanderer or Gutterbones over Diregraf Ghoul . Yes, they are 2/1, but you can get them back so I believe it's worth it.

Ok so I'm just going to address all previous comments in the same post to save time

I'm liking the idea of Carrion Feeder being SBT Diregraf Ghoul , and I'm also ok with cutting both copies of Undead Warchief to supplement the addition of extra Plague Belcher s

I'm am seeing a problem however of making sure that I kill the opponent faster than I can kill myself, so I feel like if changing over to the more sac oriented core, then I would most likely have to mainboard Gray Merchant of Asphodel (x2) to keep my life total happy, which tbh doesn't leave much room for the Undead Augur s but I can cut Nameless Inversion as well, because I would need the extra draw.

I get the idea of Prismatic Vista but I don't think it to be necessary at the moment, so you'll have to sell me on it more first. I'm not against it, but just not right now I think.

Also for now, no to Graveyard Marshal and Dreadhorde Invasion

Finally get this cycle into Modern. Hope we get Psychatog , Ichorid , and Circular Logic so I can go back to playing my favorite Extended deck (probably just wishful thinking on my part). At the very least, I'll be able to brew up some new kind of jank with the ol' Life from the Loam + Gifts Ungiven engine.

In other words, yes Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor....we're going to be hitting levels of jank that shouldn't be possible. Hell, I'll even put Hogaak into this jank deck and dump it into play with Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek off of Gifts Ungiven . Then we're gonna play red and white for Tectonic Reformation and Astral Drift.

The best part? We won't even use any of this to win because we'll be in 5 colors. Door to Nothingness will end the game once we hardcast it and activate it with all the mana we've been Life from the Loam ing back into our hands mwhwahwhahhahahaahahaa!!!

Carrion Feeder

Carrion Feeder reprint! Might actually make Zombies a viable archetype in Modern, since that deck was missing good 1-drops. The only ones playable in Modern are basically Aether Vial , Gravecrawler , Cryptbreaker , and... Diregraf Ghoul ?
