Geralf's Mindcrusher Discussion
1 week ago
Pilfered Plans for draws, Propaganda for much-needed protection, Bonehoard is an OHK, Geralf's Mindcrusher is a big thing, Memory Erosion is some more milling, Nemesis of Reason is also gigantic and terrifying, Profane Memento makes you that extra bit harder to kill, Riddlekeeper is a decent deterrent for attackers, and Sphinx's Tutelage, once again, mills things.
From one Dimir agent to another: stay millin' and stay chillin'.

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

Sun Titan Holy crap he is a must in this deck.
I'm just spit-balling here:
Phyrexian Ingester I'm not too sure about the interaction of repeated flashes, but it could work.
HAHAHA I am definitely going to go and make a FLICKER DECK IM SO EXCITED. Thanks for the idea, man. I spent so much time looking these cars up I just can't not make my own deck! +10000

Oops I forgot about Scarab God itself when looking at the cards for synergy! Training Grounds makes sense now! Since you're looking at winning in more conventional ways, you should consider including Nighthowler, Geralf's Mindcrusher, and possibly Undead Alchemist (since all tokens from Scarab God are zombies, this may be a really cool addition). Maybe Avatar of Woe? To free up the space, I would take out Memory Erosion since it is slower than you'd think (I run a Phenax-led mill deck).
Overall, I think you could benefit from a few less Instants to allow for a few more creatures. While Scarab God can sort of create your army from nothing, small number of CMC 3-or-less creatures could hurt you early on. To fix that particular issue, maybe Jace's Phantasm and possibly Manic Scribe? That's more dependent on your group's meta though, like if there are folks running aggro decks or not.
Also, you've got Talisman of Dominance in there twice by accident.

It's not legendary, but Geralf's Mindcrusher would just be amazing with all his eyes

Thank you so much for the suggestions Chopwood! I think the deck works a lot better now. First I took out most blue zombies like Geralf's Mindcrusher, Geralf's Masterpiece and Forgotten Creation to open up some space and lower the mana curve. I added zombies like Plague Belcher for value and 3 Sign in Blood for card advantage. I am working with a tight budget so the more expensive cards and planeswalkers will have to wait, but will swap them out in the future. The same goes for the lords like Death Baron and Lord of the Undead. I hadn't ever put much thought into the sideboard before cause I mostly just play casual with my friends, but I think its pretty functional now!
Thanks again for your help! keep on keeping on.

Okay, first of all, I would cut Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher and Forgotten Creation, they're simply not worth the mana cost. Always try to keep your curve low! Instead you should add Geralf's Messenger, it's a tad more expensive($), but it's a really good card, probably the best zombie card out there. Other zombies you should consider to add:
Plague Belcher - target your Gravecrawler turn 4 after combat and you've got a 5/4 with menace in combination with your opponent loosing 1 lige, plus you can cast Gravecrawler again. Potential trigger for both Diregraf Colossus and Prized Amalgam. Having Plague Belcher + Diregraf Captain in play at the same time strongly disencourages the opponent sweeping the board, since he/she will loose a lot of life.
Diregraf Ghoul - 2/2 for 1 mana, it's an okay card.
Cryptbreaker - Bit more expensive, but it can discard a Prized Amalgam, giveng you a nice 2/2 blocker, and gives you card advantage.
Relentless Dead - Also a bit more expensive, but this card is pure win, attack with it and if it dies you can return it to your hand and return a 1 cmc zombie to the battlefield, triggering Prized Amalgam.
Somewhat interesting zombies:
Lifebane Zombie - Sideboard
Zombie Outlander - Sideboard
Dark Salvation - You can pay X=0, giving you a 1 mana kill spell if you have enough zombies. If you have a lot of mana that you can't use otherwise you get a couple of tokens. A solid card.
Personally I'd consider cutting Unbreathing Horde, Butcher Ghoul, Cemetery Reaper (you want to keep your GY), Dimir Aqueduct, Bone Splinters, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Necromancer's Stockpile and maybe Rotting Rats in favor of the above.
Fatal Push - Great removal.
