Graf Harvest Discussion
1 week ago
Toxicnerve, I see you have changed this deck a fair bit since my initial comment, unfortunately it still suffers the same core issue of being decidedly top heavy... For starters I'd cut Crypt Ghast and Razaketh's Rite, the Ghast should be replaced with Diregraf Captain and the Rite could be Beseech the Queen. I'd also cut Gonti, Lord of Luxury, I like the card, but not in this deck, as a replacement how about Lich Lord of Unx? Aside from those cards Graf Harvest would be good, since it grants all your Zombies a form of evasion and it is a one drop.
Now the issue with my suggestion here is it gives you a glut of 3 drops, where as what you really want (generally) in modern is the main power of your deck in 1, 2 and 3 drops, part of the issue is the deck is still trying to be more than one thing, so Arcane Adaptation eats up 4 slots that could be used for Zombie aggro.
Food (brains!) for thought perhaps...

I have a few card suggestions, first a zombie Anathemancer, this card helps you deal damage and punishes the greedy mana base of modern. Second a zombie support card Graf Harvest, a Wildfire Eternal with menace is a tricky proposition or alternatively Glaring Spotlight, I prefer either of these to Key to the City. Lastly is an alternative way to cast Army of the Damned and that is Chandra, Pyromaster, your deck needs a little extra redundancy for the combo.

Noosegraf Mob for more zombies
Grave Titan might be too pricey but if not it is also a great option
Zombies also have a lot of lords that you can take advantage of, namely:
Rooftop Storm is also great
Zombies are a very well supported tribe, so you can make a very strong and fun deck. Have fun :)

Sick list, I would suggest more lords like Diregraf Captain, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, Lord of the Accursed, Cemetery Reaper, and maybe even Undead Warchief despite him having higher mana cost for an vial deck.
Possibly Graf Harvest too.

When playing tribal, anything over a 3-drop had better be game-breakingly awesome. The Scarab God does nothing until T6 at the earliest, and a lot of modern games are almost over by then. Liliana's Reaver is a muge mana cost for something that dies to all one-drop removal from Lightning Bolt to Path to Exile to Fatal Push (btw Revolt is super easy to trigger in modern with Fetches etc.). Cut both.
Endless Ranks of the Dead starts off slow, but within a few turns can churn you out huge numbers of zombie tokens; give them buffs and menace from the Lords and you're good to swing a horde in!

If you are sticking to mono-Black, your options for giving all your creatures flying are limited to Akroma's Memorial, Eldrazi Monument. Neither are thematically very appropriate, but they get the job done.
Both Blue and White, which also contain zombies, have other cards granting all your creatures flying, as I said earlier, these zombies are not quite the horde flavour you have been looking for. There are a number of equipment which grant a single creature flying, if that is what you are looking for.
If you are looking for evasion for your attacks, Graf Harvest will give your zombies menace, making it much harder to block the horde.

@ Podkomorka ; Lord of Tresserhorn himself is actually a zombie according to the updated errata for him, so he's actually part of the tribal team. =)
I planned to put in more Zombie Lords and other things just so he gets things for free just by existing; but is this a bad idea then? I was thinking Zombie Master, Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Graf Harvest, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, and Undead Warchief to name a few.

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
