Also I do understand where you are coming from with the fatties. But I will have Rune-Scarred Demon out by turn 2 and every turn after. I can have It That Betrays swinging by turn 3. If that does happen, your dead on turn 3-4. As will either swing and deal 11, then Fling him for another 11. Thats 22. If you happen to have a blocker it will more than likely die. Worst case scenario my guy dies. So I just fling him then pull him back out and attack again. Then we are back to winning on turn 5-7. I just feel its much better to put out 13 creatures with 1 card vs your 1 even if he is a fatty. Its because of the fact that Im also putting out fatties as fast as you that Im not worried. And again my fatties will have life-link by turn 4 anyway. So Ill gain back life as fast as you can take it away.

It's true that a lot of zombies would do a great damage, however, you still take time to build them up, allowing the game to turn to the other side. That's why I prefer playing with only fatties, being able to do this on 1st turn Entomb + Dark Ritual + Exhume + Akroma, angel of Wrath. Being a great boost on the start and possibly winning the game on turn 3 or 4. As for the replacements, I know Gravecrawler but for Fling , I dont' remeber anything right now, but if something comes up I will tell you.

luisserpa Thanks for the intvite! I will check your cards. I was going to use more Demons in place of the Zombies but... if my original plan fails of flinging It That Betrays , Ill be in turn 5-7. By that time my Demons would be no match for anything that some of these others will have out. Also its easy to remove one creature. I'd much rather swing 13+ 5/5 zombies all at once. There is no way that can all be blocked. Plus Im not worried about losing a few and taking some damage as the odds are Ill have Whip of Erebos out and gain 65+ life in one swing. Does this make sense? This was a deck that took much time and planning. If I were to replace a creature it would be Tenacious Dead . I didnt want a guy that regenerates as there are removal cards such as Putrefy . This way I have a reusable 1 drop chump blocker that can be brought back without using one of my sorcery spells. If there is somebody better (Preferably a Zombie) that is similar I would love to replace him. Also something I would LOVE... are there any cards that do the same as Fling in black? It needs to be instant speed though.

APPLE01DOJ I really liked the way you helped me with one of my other decks. Would you mind giving me some feed back with this one? I built this deck to be mono-black. But I cant find a black card similar to Fling that is instant speed. Therefore I splashed some red. Ive never built a graveyard deck before. Ive been just looking at some other decks and kinda worked off of them. I added the effect of flinging It That Betrays myself. However I want to lower the risk of him becoming the target of a spell after he enters the grave. So Im using Whip of Erebos , attacking with him, then using Fling . Also just in case anybody gets the bright idea of negating my graveyard interaction, I have some zombies to deal direct damage with. I will only use them as a back up though. I built this deck using proxy cards and ran it a few times last night. I was winning by turn 7-8.

Then are there any cards that do the same as Dying Wish with the trigger effect of something like "when target creature leaves play?" Im seriously thinking of replacing Nightmare with It That Betrays and using a Fling . However I really wanted to stay mono-black.

Kiora_Fan-01 - This deck never feels short on card draw- but your suggestion of dropping Damnation is one I hadn't considered before. I might try Fling or Inferno Titan in it's place.

zerowner - Holy Hell I've never seen Rakdos Riteknife before. That card is awesome. I believe Din of the Fireherd is a little too expensive for this deck.

Countertop - Deathrender is a great card. I'm going to strongly consider this one.

Harvester of Souls will be replaced by Grim Haruspex once Khans comes out. Bloodsoaked Champion got me excited for a moment, but Reassembling Skeleton does the same thing without the stipulation.

out of curiosity what turn do you hit lethal on? lol Fling I just thought to myself, what stumps removal, and that's usually a response to removal, imagine you swing for whatever stupid amount a creature is, they try to kill it, you fling in response.
