Ghoulcaller's Chant Discussion

Hi Arthaiser, thanks a lot for your suggestions. I think you are right about the Merchant, but i love that card, and i'm not sure i'd be able to part from it! I'll test the deck anyway, so I can see how it would go without that card.

Thanks for letting me know your opinion about the Nameless Inversion/Ghoulcaller's Chant swap! I think i'll put it in. I was honestly thinking of replacing only 1 Victim of Night with it, because it costs exactly the same converted mana cost as the inversion, but i'm not so sure about it, also because it would be difficoult to find it in the deck. Should I remove also 1 Disfigure, in your opinion?

Also, Ghoulcaller's Chant gets you twice the zombies back for the same amount of mana as Raise Dead for less money

this deck looks very good, but i have to say, i like asphodel, but he is in another mana curve entirely, the rest of the deck can be played at 2 mana, since the few cards that actually cost more are better if we cycle them (most of the time).

even the sb stops at 2 and the maybeboard so i have been thinking... maybe asphodel has to go? and maybe 2 lands have to go with him? a deck that caps at 2 usually plays 16 lands. but maybe this deck needs more mana than the average 2 drop deck so i am not that sure about that.

as for the additions in these hypotetical slots, 2 more Ghoulcaller's Chant are mandatory in my opinion, if you take the lands also, i can see Nameless Inversion there. in fact i can see that card in the deck more than Disfigure or maybe 50% of each.

just my two cents, please tell what you think about them.

Hey guys do you think that replacing 1 Victim of Night with Nameless Inversion and the 2 Unearth with 2 more Ghoulcaller's Chant would be good? Doing so I'd be able to take back the inversion from the graveyard to play it again, being it also a zombie card

I think you could go a bit heavier into the whole graveyard-stockpile-reanimate if you cut the planeswalkers, Altar of the Brood, Ever After and perhaps Ghoulcaller's Chant and replaced them with some mix of Mulch and Grisly Salvage. Especially with Relentless Dead, that could lead to a decent, if really grindy, way of winning from your graveyard.

I like the basic idea, and actually more or less all your creatures too. But the support cards are... erhm... second choice, almost all of them (Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize being the exceptions).

Cancel: what do you hope to counter? Non-creature spells? Then bring Negate or Spell Pierce. Nothing in particular, just tempo for a bit more time? Remand would be better.

Hero's Downfall: so much removal in black, and you pick this one... why? A deck that takes a bit of set-up (and this one does) is usually better of with something like Fatal Push, or Doom Blade/Go for the Throat (for budget). If you want something for the early part of the game, Abrupt Decay is pretty good. Since they are cheaper, they also go the graveyard sooner, for potential use as delve-fuel.

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver doesn't really do anything with the rest of your deck. The reanimation is sweet, but depending on finding something specific in your opponents library seems like it could go very wrong.

Liliana, Death's Majesty is too expensive for a deck with 21 lands. Her +2 ability seems like it fits with your basic gameplan, but when she finally hits the table, your graveyard should already be filled with goodies.

Consulate Turret is a bit of... you get to shoot for 2 damage every 3 turns? That's not really the powerlevel of modern, is it?

Altar of the Brood is something I could see a combo on, but since there is no combo here, you just end up enabling dredgedecks or Snapcaster Mages. And with only one of these, you'll never get to the point where you can mill out your opponent.

Ever After funny card, super-powerful when you play it. But 6 cmc is not something for a deck with only 21 lands.

Ghoulcaller's Chant the idea of 2 cards for 1 card/1 mana, is attractive. Perhaps it works, perhaps not. Remove for game 2, because its a crap-card after opponent has boarded in graveyardhate.

Another card that could restart your zombies after a tablesweeper, could be Relentless Dead.

i would cut 4 Hellrider and 2 Rakdos Cackler for 3 Tymaret, the Murder King and 3 Lord of the Undead.

Consider Anathemancer and Ghoulcaller's Chant for the sideboard.
