You should consider Phyrexian Dreadnought

12 power, 1 mana, needs to be sacrificed as it enters the battlefield, but that is a triggered effect, so while that is on the stack you can sacrifice it to Ghoulcaller Gisa for 12 zombies, 1 card, 2 mana.

It's a bit wonky, but the Phyrexian Dreadnought is a 12/12 trampler in the regular scenario where you play it and sacrifice 6 2/2 zombie tokens.

Thornbite Staff and Ghoulcaller Gisa combo if you wanna add some jank to this

MegaMatt13 on Yahenni - Endless Sacrifice

My list is: Yahenni: There are Benefits to Dying

It performs quite well now that I've changed my strategy a bit. I used to come out swinging too quickly with Yahenni, making him big and scary. This would turn the table against me. I now try to hold back and play more of a control/attrition game and go for the alpha strike later on.

I am thinking of adding Relentless Dead, Ghoulcaller Gisa and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder for more sac fodder. Yahenni really needs that constant supply of sac fodder to keep him protected.

Thanks Last_Laugh for the suggestions!! I've made a number of changes after checking out your stuff and think that my deck has improved. However, there's a couple cards I like a decent amount, but I'm not sure if I should play them. What do you think about the following?

Ghoulcaller Gisa I feel like she's a good option to move some cards like Merciless Executioner and etc. back to the graveyard while also filling up the board with some bodies. Also blowing up Lord of Extinction and potentially getting a bunch of zombies seems pretty funny.

Seed Guardian I just like this guy and thought he could be nifty

Bonds of Mortality seemed interesting but almost too situational

Reef Worm seems like it can get you a decent amount of value, but not sure if I should run it. Could also be a good target for Jarad/Ghoulcaller

Not sure if Windfall is worth running, I've tried to stay away from the instant and sorceries since they're tougher to get back into hand.

Not sure if I should use Commander's Sphere or Lotus Petal

Also, have you considered cards to protect your graveyard from removal like the Perpetual Timepiece or Elixir of Immortality?

I also want to include Siren Stormtamer but can't figure out what to replace.

As a general comment you may want to consider swapping your general over to Ghoulcaller Gisa or Geth, Lord of the Vault. Ten mana for 8 zombies seems expensive when you alternatively you could do something like sac Phyrexian Dreadnought to Ghoulcaller Gisa and make 12 zombies for a total of 7 mana. Ghoulcaller Gisa's ability is much more repeatable as well, both across turns and within the same turn when using Thousand-Year Elixir and/or Thornbite Staff. Add in Coat of Arms for extra damage and Eldrazi Monument for protection and you've got a pretty lethal zombie horde. Ghoulcaller Gisa does quickly become the target of spot removal though, so I'd be keeping that Swiftfoot Boots and maybe even adding Lightning Greaves.

Geth, Lord of the Vault builds in which you are emptying everyone's hands and filling up graveyards through cards like Mindslicer and Mindcrank, then using Geth, Lord of the Vault to steal the offerings, are even more powerful again. Although this does start to depart from being a zombie build, if that's what you're really after.

Hope that gives you some extra ideas to play with.

You're looking for big black mana? Then look no further, suggestions have arrived!

Thespian's Stage - copy coffers or utility land

Mirage Mirror - same as above with even more utility, can also be used with Dark Depths Note: Vampire Hexmage does as well (and also gets rid of planeswalkers)

Nirkana Revenant - Big Black Mana

Bitterblossom - Defense against fliers, sac fodder for commander and works with Contamination

Reassembling Skeleton - Same as above (excluding flying)

Torment of Hailfire - Amazing X spell

Disciple of Bolas - Card draw and life gain (to mitigate life loss that's common with black). also works as a one time use sac outlet

Ophiomancer - token producers are key for sidisi, also helps against stompy

Ghoulcaller Gisa - Sac outlet, token generator, seems solid

Kokusho, the Evening Star - Sac target, defense against flying, lifegain

Beseech the Queen - You are mono black so TUTORS ARE A MUST!!!!

Yawgmoth's Will - Ultimate recursion

Victimize - Synergy with token generators

Cards for fun...for you and the whole fami....JUST FUN FOR YOU!

Worst Fears - One time use, extreme potential

Mindslaver - Similar to above

Emrakul, the Promised End - My favorite out of the 3!

Oblivion Stone - You seem to have some cards to deal with blacks inability to deal with artifacts and enchantments. In case you feel you need more, you can add this or Nevinyrral's Disk. All the suggestions I have made could go into your 10 card wishboard (playgroup permitting)


Trading Post - Synergize with spine of ish shah, token producer (think contamination or sidisi), sac outlet, and in a pinch can gain life (perhaps from getting attacked too much or necroed yourself too low)

No Mercy - Run it, no exception

Overall the deck seems solid, +1 from me. If you want me to recommend other cards, find cards to remove, or have any questions in general, please let me know. You have a combo in there or 2 so I can suggest actual combos that you might want to consider given that you have a tutor in the commandzone. If you want some other (mostly nonbudget) ideas, feel free to check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness
