Zombie decks are pretty cool, and very dangerous. I would suggest you to have some more creatures.Since this is a tribal deck, you should have at least 25 creatures, and there are some that I would suggest, Cemetery Reaper , which allows you to get to remove your opponents creatures from the cemetery, getting a 3/3 zombie. Gravecrawler is such an amazing card. Geralf's Messenger is another great zombie card and cann really pack a punch. A good finisher is Korlash, Heir to Blackblade . Endless Ranks of the Dead is another great card for zombie decks. Murder is simple and effective.Right now this is what I remember, I hope I gave some help.

Hey, ZombieCat. Yeah, I think we can work something out. I'm interested in your Polluted Delta ($16.49). With Bow of Nylea , the foil Geralf's Messenger , and Genesis Wave , that's a total of $11.62. Mind taking a look at my binder to make up the rest of the value?

Corrupt was on my short list of fillers when I had figured out the main plot of the deck. However, previous experience showed that Gary is more than enough of a finisher (or desperate life saver) vs Corrupt 's higher mana cost. It fits the idea for sure, but my costs are already in the high side, and the one land that let's me get away with that (Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ) takes a lot of the bite out of Corrupt .

Demon of Death's Gate is a bit more interesting. I could see a deck that starts off with a lot of weenies powering out this dude much earlier than normal and then wrecking things. I especially like how Geralf's Messenger being sacked takes away no devo and hits for another three and gets pumped. However, besides that interaction, I'm not sure this deck can really abuse it enough. I would more likely be waiting till turn ~5, sacking away over 6 devotion, then be left with a vulnerable to any removal fatty and down 3 potential blocks or attacks. It's inclusion would also leave the deck even more vulnerable to control/creature hate.

I'll have to do some looking into what kind of set ups really abuse the hell out of the card to get a better feel for if it would work here. A good suggestion because I hadn't heard of the card and now have a new avenue to look into.

it seems like Geralf's Messenger would fit very nicely here, and I found that Altar's Reap worked very well alongside Undying to provide some decent card advantage. I also like Treasured Find for its obvious advantages. I would take out the Grim Backwoods in favour of some GB duals of some sort, Woodland Cemetery works quite well, as do Overgrown Tomb s if you can acquire either. My suggestion for a finisher, though he doesn't exactly fit the theme, would be Desecration Demon he is either swinging for 6 as soon as he's able or he slowly clears their board until he starts swinging for some larger number. Putrefy and/or Abrupt Decay are great GB removal spells as well if you ever find you are looking for more. Nice job, +1 from me. Price
