Gisa's Bidding Discussion
21 hours ago
If you look at Standard right now there's a deck that wins consistently with tokens, Zombies. Consider converting your deck into B/W Zombies with a main token theme. Wayward Servant can add a significant amount of life loss and life gain when duplicating Zombies tokens. Servant in combination with Zulaport Cutthroat would give you damage from both angles when Zombie tokens are created and when they die.
I suggest Zombies because they have a ridiculously good lord package right now with Lord of the Accursed and Liliana's Mastery. Both these cards give Zombie tokens a lot of reach. Because you care about making tokens Dark Salvation can pull double duty as a token maker and removal spell.
Possible List trying best to keep it budget (Untested):
- 4x Cryptbreaker
- 4x Wayward Servant
- 4x Zulaport Cutthroat
- 2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
- 3x Lord of the Accursed
- 2x Diregraf Colossus
- 1x Bontu the Glorified
- 4x Anointed Procession
- 4x Liliana's Mastery
- 4x Dark Salvation
- 3x Grasp of Darkness
- 2x Gisa's Bidding
- 25x Lands
I've included Cryptbreaker even though he is $4 a piece which might be out of your price range. He can be a constant Zombie token maker and a draw engine when using Zombies which is exactly what you want. Procession into Mastery does create a lot of power on the battlefield.
Good luck with your deck.

RedBuilder11 so you're suggesting removing Gisa's Bidding all together and adding a full playset of Fatal Push. Then maybe dropping Liliana to three of a certain one and adding one more Grasp of Darkness?

Seems like a pretty standard solid zombie list to me, however a few cards seem sub-par. In particular Gisa's Bidding is rather weak, considering your only synergy with it is Cryptbreaker, in which you still have to pay 5 mana to make that combo work. I'd also recommend cutting down on the numbers of both planeswalkers, probably to about 3-4 total depending on which of the 2 you prefer. With those cuts, you should finish off your playset of Liliana's Mastery, and add a couple more lands and some more removal such as Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness

I agree with pretty much everything said! It looks like you're going in the right direction, here's some more options to choose from incase you want more:
Allied ReinforcementsCaptain's ClawsOath of GideonDesolation Twin would be pretty sick as a finisher if you make it that long, probably not a good idea, but thought I'd mention if your local meta is slow.Ethereal Guidance or an instant equivalent could be sideboard-able in my opinionI also like me some one or two of's Unruly Mob and Inspiring Captain for the same reason, but don't let ANY creatures distract you from token generation, that is number one, any synergies that don't generate tokens are just icing on the cake. Focus on tokens FIRST.If you find you have great early game life gain Felidar Sovereign is an option as a one or two of.Call of the Bloodline Shamble Back From Under the Floorboards and Gisa's Bidding are all things in standard.
I'm not saying any of these will be the answer to your problems, but options are always a good thing, and you can mess around to see what works for you! Can't wait to see what you do!

You might could take out 1 From Under the Floorboards and 1 Gisa's Bidding for 2 Trespasser's Curse only because you are going to be making an ass ton of tokens with or without them. This is just my suggestion-- I am pretty new to magic as well.

Most of those cards are easy to get or are give or take 25 cent. But other cards I would suggest from Shadows and Eldrich are.. Give No Ground, Lunarch Mantle, Strange Augmentation, Rise from the Grave, Noosegraf Mob, Liliana's Elite, Gavony Unhallowed, Campaign of Vengeance, Ghoulcaller's Accomplice, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Shamble Back, Gryff's Boon, Ethereal Guidance, Angelic Purge, and Corrupted Grafstone. Those should be enough to finish the deck. If you want other cards that could be of help for maybe a life drain rout, try Bontu's Monument. It will help all your black zombies cost less and whenever a creature enters in under your control opponents lose a life and you gain one. Again, all the cards I listed are either easy to get or cheap to buy in case you want them and don't have them. Cards from Kaladesh and Aether Revolt could help a little, but not as much as the ones I already listed. If you want more removal, Zendikar/Gatewatch has a decent bit in both white and black. If there is a specific way you wan the deck to play, I could help tweak it in that direction. As for the cards on the fence, see if you like anything listed more than those before deciding.

So this is obviously a zombie tribal deck but many aspects confuse me. What purpose does the 2 of Embalmer's Tools have in the deck? You don't have Throne of the God-Pharaoh in the deck so tapping isn't super useful and you only have 5 total creatures that can be cast from the graveyard so the discount is hardly worth it.I also don't understand the Painted Bluffs in the mana base. You only have 2 colors and aren't even filling out the play sets of your dual lands so what is the point of them?Anointed Procession is a do nothing the turn it comes out 4 mana enchantment. Hardly worth including at all let alone a 3. If you do want to go deep on this you want a 4 of Diregraf Colossus and a few Dark Salvation, other options include From Under the Floorboards and/or Gisa's Bidding and maybe some more embalm.Cryptbreaker is arguably the best zombie in standard and you do not have any in your list as well.Grasp of Darkness, Fatal Push and Anguished Unmaking are fantastic removal spells and should at least appear in your sideboard.
If you want to see my similar build of this deck it is Amonkhet Zombie Tribal

This is probably really late, but I'm trying Hedron Alignment out as well. With all the discard you've got going on, are you sure that you don't want to run a few more spells or creatures with the "madness" mechanic, rather than your spirits? Asylum Visitor might work well for this deck, since you have a lot of discard outlets without opportunities to draw. From Under the Floorboards, Gisa's Bidding, Murderous Compulsion and Just the Wind could also give you some breathing room. Nagging Thoughts could help you find and discard your Hedron Alignments faster. Heck, you could even play with Welcome to the Fold, since you have so many ways to discard already built in.
Just some food for thought.
