Gleaming Overseer

Creature — Zombie Wizard

When Gleaming Overseer enters the battlefield, amass 1. (Put a +1/+1 counter on an Army you control. If you don't control one, create a 0/0 black Zombie Army creature token first.)

Zombie tokens you control have hexproof and menace.

Added some small upgrades like Gleaming Overseer , Firemind Vessel

Not satisfied with Mutilate , looking for another cheap boardwipe

First of all, you should add the tag CMDR after Varina, Lich Queen in the Edit menu so it is identified as your commander.

To make the deck 100 cards, I would cut Approach of the Second Sun for sure, and probably Cabal Stronghold (works only with Basic Swamps), Countersquall and Library of Leng .

Have you thought about Lord of the Accursed , Gleaming Overseer and Undead Augur ? Grave Titan seems fine too, and since you are playing black, what about Yawgmoth Will Bargain ?

Ghoulcaller Gisa is always fun with your Anointed Procession .

Finally, I would swap 2 of your Signets for the 2 missing Talismans, and prepare to swap the third Signet for the incoming Arcane Signet ^^

Gauwal you're not supposed to copy the army itself but cards like Gleaming Overseer . That way you have a 1/4 with hexproof and menace since it's a Zombie Token.

I have been looking at trying to build the list for this as well. I have a BUG list (includes Hardened Scales , Winding Constrictor , and Gleaming Overseer ). Since it seems to be a bit more mono black without any way to bump up counters, have you considered running Death's Shadow or even Blood Artist along with a sac outlet?

All Other cards I can sum up: It really doesnt make something better as the existing cards so you can try but I wouldnt test too much. I mean, some effects are really nice, but they are too dependend on special situations.

hey Dumannios

One of the things I'd tackle first, personally, is reworking your dual lands. Coming into the battlefield tapped puts you behind, especially early game imho. I think looking at cards that, while a bit more expensive, would help you in that regard.

Lots of your mana rocks come into play tapped as well, Voltaic Key might be a solution or Unwinding Clock , Talisman of Dominance is a nice pick up and Fellwar Stone I used to run with Wonder in my deck as well, exchanged that out for Eldrazi Monument as I run a lot of token generation to sac each upkeep, could pair that up with Damnation

Kindred Dominance could be something worth while, still cheaper than Plague Wind .

Balthor the Defiled feels really out of place, you don't run red so seems like half his cast ability is wasted. Zombie Master , Undead Warchief (cost reduction and pumps your zombies, sounds like a win win) or Gleaming Overseer (I think amass is a useless ability still) but this would protect your tokens from some of your cards and still allow your undead army to grow.

Feel free to take a look at my zombie deck for any ideas as well Grimgrin, zombie extraordinaire

Based on your criteria, I would recommend these:

Gleaming Overseer

Midnight Reaper

Josu Vess, Lich Knight

It looks like youre not running purely on zombies so the above three may not make your cut.

Mission Briefing fits your theme a but better.

Maybe Drowned Secrets ?

Neat deck! +1

Below I have listed cards from Most to least likely to get added to the deck. It all depends if I can find room for them, but I thought they were at least worth considering. Let me know what you think! What should I cut?
