Ghoulcaller Gisa doesn't target.

But what Imean is that if card like Ghoulcaller Gisa will target my Alpha Tyrranax, and i've managed to put a +1/+1 counter on it, will i get 6 or 7 zombies?

Ok, dlamars, I have to thank you for posting the link to your deck. It gave me a few other ideas to look at. I was considering running Intruder Alarm in this deck, but thought otherwise as I would be untapping everyone's creatures when I bring in a zombie. But with the combo you mentioned with Ghoulcaller Gisa, that is not a bad trade at all! So its going in. I also need to figure out the other changes to make, and get this put together.

I think with Intruder Alarm going in, I can take out the Thornbite Staff. I also still need to fit in the Altars. I do believe I'll drop Noxious Ghoul, and I found another decent tutor to fit the deck: Noble Benefactor. Yes, it helps out the other players, but I can live with that at the budget price, and I have some on hand, and he synergizes with the sacrificing in the deck, so getting rid of him can be a same turn thing.

So, now the foundation is laid. I'll take any and all help with making the switches.

Thank you guys so far for all the help!

I wouldn't use the tokens as aggro. I would use it pillow forty style. Tokens combo well with things like Altar of the Brood, Intruder Alarm, Ghoulcaller Gisa, etc. Then as I'm milling with my zombies I can make more zombies with Undead Alchemist. Plus I've never really liked playing reanimator style. Nothing wrong with it persay. It's just not my cup of tea.

Nice theme. I think you should definitely run Ghoulcaller Gisa, especially since you are running both Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash. Equip one of those to a lowly little token, sac it to Gisa, and go really wide. Repeat each turn.

Thanks for the suggestions!

DasTree: Because Savra herself, and the various Grave Pact effects I have in the deck, plus the sac outlets themselves allow most of my creatures to trade at better than 1-for-1 with my opponent's, I'm actually usually okay letting everyone draw. Obviously I don't activate it if I've got, say, Erebos, God of the Dead out, but Mikokoro works in a pinch.

Archive seems great, I'll see if I can fit that in, but Jarad is... underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, he's a great general in his own right, but I don't have the other big creatures to fling with him, so adding him would require really revamping the entire creature packages I'm running. Gitrog, similarly, is a good general, but forces me to sac lands, which doesn't get me much advantage.

Grind: Skeletal Vampire is a bit overcosted for what he does. The reusable sacrifice is decent, but I'd rather be playing Ghoulcaller Gisa for that kind of effect. Ulamog is in here because there's a pair of mill decks running around in my meta, otherwise I agree, he's not the best for the deck. The reshuffle is nice on occasion, though. Terastodon's another good card, but like you said... it gives people tokens to sac.

Have you thought of Ghoulcaller Gisa? With some of the recursion you have, you could really flood the board with zombies.
