Geralf's Masterpiece Discussion

Does Geralf's Masterpiece count as a blue Deaths Shadow? No okay
Grave Shadow gets +1/+1 for each instant or sorcery card in your graveyard.

I like Tar Pit a lot, but currently I don't have any, and it's a bit expensive. Also, the mana base is skewed toward BG, so I'm not sure if it's the best choice overall. If I ever get one I will probably include it though.
I'd really like ideas for some Traverse targets. I think Mindwrack Demon or Geralf's Masterpiece seem like good ones. I'm also wondering what cycle cards might help. I really like Nimble Obstructionist as a multi function card, but also Censor can maybe be a sideboard card?

All three of my Tricolour zombie decks have been in need of serious updates since Commander 2014. I have made a lot of changes to update this since the revisit to Innistrad as cards like Cryptbreaker, Geralf's Masterpiece and others have been excellent additions.
The change relates to experience with my SBT BUG deck - I found that if you mill yourself a lot, all the other cards have to have recursion or other cards to reanimate them. So, unless we are talking about Faithless Looting or Army of the Damned sorceries in my Marchesa deck would need cards like Possessed Skaab, which lead to a lot of cards extra cards.
Now the deck revolves around strong Zombies with counters, cards like thraximunder, Diregraf Colossus, Noosegraf Mob and Unbreathing Horde. These zombies with counters, work alongside self-discard cards which help generate tokens, draw cards and fill the graveyard with tonnes of beneficial targets. Now that we are selectively discarding rather than milling, we can draw into lands and spells which we need in hand; cards like [[Living End] or [Twilight's Call]], which we couldn't do before. We can also discard targets like Scourge of Nel Toth or Anger or Vengeful Pharaoh.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,
Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.
If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.
Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Wow, this deck seems really cool! If I had to make a couple of suggestions, Eternal Scourge is an excellent card to exile from graveyards, Grim Flayer is fantastic as an early beater that can fill your yard up, Geralf's Masterpiece works well with reanimation triggers and is at its finest when in your graveyard, and Gnarlwood Dryad loves full graveyards. +1 from me!

Stuff to add...- Deserts from sideboard (replace basics)- Blue utility, counterspells, card draw or scrying- Put Jace, Unraveler of Secrets back in?
On the chopping block...- Plague Belcher is power level good enough?- Geralf's Masterpiece flying is nice and good power if top-decking. Will see how it plays.- From Under the Floorboards few discard outlets, 5 mana for 3 tokens not that exciting- Mortuary Mire not a self-mill deck, crap in opening hand

There are also some nice flying zombies in blue, such as Stitchwing Skaab, Advanced Stitchwing, and Geralf's Masterpiece. Staying in Orzhov, there are some neat interactions with Haunted Dead that award you with fliers, especially if you have Anointed Procession on the field.
