Ghoulcaller's Chant Discussion
2 weeks ago
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

I think your devotion to black is fairly good so I think you could consider Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
Also, Bad Moon could work as a "lord" for all of your creatures. I feel your kill spells could handle anything your opponents' control that benefit from it.
I really like this deck, honestly.

Thanks wonderboyrox for the suggestions,
I swapped Zulaport Cutthroat with Blood Artist, as I agree it is certainly better. I am considering Ghoulcaller's Chant and Relentless Dead, but I am not sure of where I would slot them in. Cabal Coffers is a good addition, but I want this deck to be fairly cheap, so I will probably not include it.
Thanks for the suggestions!

Cabal Coffers? Pricey, but at least one is worth investing in for any mono-black deck.

My take... Changeling Bling
Note: all the instants trigger Door of Destinies
Edit: Oh EDH. missed that. nevermind.

@ zephyr_chang I've been able to play everything that's high in cost, as soon as I have a Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, I can search for another one with many "search library" cards and use his "Grandeur" to get an additional 2 swamps onto the field from my library.... Then my Raise Dead and Ghoulcaller's Chant can immediately bring 1 or 2 discarded Korlash into my hand and do it again. I've got 9 Swamps out on the field in one turn by doing so.

Screeching Skaab vs. Withered Wretch. Wretch is the only creature in here focused on exiling from the grave, which is good if an opponent is running reanimate but as the only card in here that does that, I'd just ditch it and go with the self mill idea. Maybe think about finding a couple cards with flashback that help retrieve an instant/sorcery from the grave in case you throw out Zombie Apocalypse or Living Death. I'd suggest getting rid of the counterspells but that's just me.
Nightcreep is a cool card but seems pointless in here. You don't have any swampwalk, and it'd help your opponents out if you have Bad Moon out. I could see maybe some kind of combo with Bubbling Muck but trying to play one card off another card that you may or may not have is risky.
From the maybeboard, I wouldn't bother with Forgotten Creation, Graf Harvest, Liliana's Elite or Servant of Tymaret. The crow is perfect for the mill theme. I'd argue that Door of Destinies could be better than Coat of Arms, but ideally switch out Jinxed Idol for it. The other cards are just really good.

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?
