Endless Ranks of the Dead Discussion
4 days ago
Nothing says "Zombie Hoard" like Endless Ranks of the Dead. If you want your deck to quickly spiral out of control, and really feel like the zombies are spreading and growing in ranks, you cannot do any better. It also has one of the best artworks in MTG--that stained glass is beautifully drawn, and its juxtaposition against the encroaching hoard truly creates an atmosphere of terror.
With a few minor exceptions, tokens are regular creatures, and can be used in any way a normal creature can--this includes sacrificing them. The exceptions are well delineated on cards where the distinction applies (for example: Always Watching only applies to "nontoken creatures").

I recently made a zombie deck for modern and I have some suggestions. I do not know your budget but here are my suggestions
Gravecrawler - 2/1 creature that can reanimate itself for 1. bingo
Cryptbreaker - great 1 drop utility creature. can both draw you cards and create tokens
Endless Ranks of the Dead - if you can keep this around for about 3 turns, you usually just won the game. a horde of zombies that just gets bigger without answers.
Grimgrin, Corpse-Born good card in that it is a heavy hitter and can spot remove the biggest creatures.
Claim / Fame This is a fairly new card I am trying out. Can be used to bring back cheap zombies.
Relentless Dead - card that can both provide self resurrect and bring back your other zombies

I am a big fan of NN Thomas' post MTG artwork, which includes both prints and resin figures. Interestingly, her style is drastically different for her own pieces than when she was working for Wizards. She still has some notable card art, including Drought, Underground River, and Aysen Crusader.
Anguished Unmaking has always been a favourite of mine. You can really tell how much pain Sorin is in as he destroys his creation.
I could do without the zombies in Endless Ranks of the Dead, but the stained glass window is gorgeous.

What format, what do your friends play, and what is the budget constraint.

Alright, spells you might find useful- Endless Ranks of the Dead, Soul Stair Expedition, and Zombie Apocalypse. Also, you need a bit more utility, get a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Wight of Precinct Six, Stromgald Crusader and Royal Assassin. Other than that, you have a solid deck, well done.

I have Doubling Season as a means to aggressively use Liliana, the Last Hope's last ability. True she'll only be at 6, but you use her +1 and the next turn you get her Emblem. It also works wonders with Endless Ranks of the Dead. I feel like if I cut them both out, the entire deck's idea of aggressively turning out literally hundreds of tokens falls apart.
However, I see your point on Marrow Chomper and Vulturous Zombie. Perhaps those are more well suited for Sideboard cards? And I agree about Whip of Erebos. I was just thinking Lifelink would be fun, but it absolutely does not need to be in there.
As for Evolving Wilds, it's actually in there for Fatal Push. My Forest / Swamp may enter tapped (Unlike with Verdant Catacombs), however it still gives me two additional cards to kick off FP's Revolt ability.
I had actually considered Slitherhead. Might go back to him. A 1/1 that turns into a +1/+1 Counter always sounds good, IMO

Hey there! Cool deck! I feel like your problems could mostly be solved by making your deck faster. There's really only one viable ramp deck in Modern, TitanShift, and that's because ramp is its win condition.
To that end, I would cut most of the expensive cards in your deck altogether: Marrow Chomper, Vulturous Zombie, Doubling Season, Whip of Erebos, maybe even Endless Ranks of the Dead, and instead focus more on powering out some solid early Zombies like Gravecrawler, Diregraf Ghoul, Geralf's Messenger, etc. You could even go for Slitherhead if you need to dig deep enough. I would also cut Golgari Charm for some more aggressive 2-drops, probably something like Relentless Dead.
Additionally, if you need to add more cards to replace the above cuts, I would recommend going up to the full 4 Lotleth Troll, followed by the full 4 of some of your lords.
In any case, good luck, and I hope this helps!
