Graf Harvest Discussion
1 week 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

You should reduce the number of mainboard cards down to 60. I would start by moving Golgari Cluestone, Executioner's Capsule, Golgari Germination, and Graf Harvest to the sideboard or removing them completely. That would reduce your mainboard down to 60 and would increase your sideboard to 12. My deck, Grisly Splinterfright, uses the same colors and has some of the same cards. I'm not sure if this is a Zombie deck or a Graveyard deck, so I don't want to suggest cards like Raven's Crime, Commune with the Gods, or Grisly Salvage because they would fit a Graveyard/Dredge deck but not necessarily a zombie deck.

Thanks Padapos for the suggestions!
I replaced 4x Plague Belcher with 4x Relentless Dead, but I am unsure of how I am going to fit Geralf's Messenger into the deck. The removal now consists of 4x Path to Exile, and 4x Fatal Push, also putting in 2x Graf Harvest (I would rather this than paying Lord of the Accursed's cost every turn). I don't think I am game enough to include Aether Vial as it is very expensive (Awesome card though). Thanks for suggesting Sea Gate Wreckage, but I think the card draw from Cryptbreaker is enough for me :)

I tried out plague belcher in my own Zombies deck and he just isn't worth playing. As the above suggests add 4x Relentless Dead and also add 4x Geralf's Messenger. Also if you're playing zombies, instead of running the Lord of the Accursed you should try running something like a 2/3 split of Death Baron and Cemetery Reaper. For removal spells since you're in white you should be running 4x Path to Exile and 4x Fatal Push. One really good card I added as a 2 of to my deck recently was Graf Harvest. For 1 single mana this card generates SO much advantage for a zombies deck and I'd rate it a 10/10.
If you don't care about budget, it's best to add in 4-6 fetchlands for your mana sources and to help activate revolt for Fatal Push. You can also add in cards like Aether Vial and Phylactery Lich to combo with it. It helps you play zombies at instant speed while leaving up mana for effects like Cemetery Reaper, Relentless Dead, Graf Harvest, Cryptbreaker, and even Mutavault if you decide to add it in along with a couple Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.
Lastly, a FANTASTIC card for late game card advantage for when you finally get into top deck mode is Sea Gate Wreckage. Only problem is that you need to have a mana source that taps for colourless mana to activate this land's ability. This can be very easily solved by running filter lands that can tap for either 1 colourless mana or tap it and one of the colours in your mana base to produce 2 colours in that mana base. The card you would want would be Fetid Heath and you would want approximately 3 of them if you include Sea Gate Wreckage.

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.

Oloro_Magic, I own a Lord of the Accursed, but I was unsure whether to add it or not considering I have Graf Harvest. I don't know why it hasn't came to my mind that I'm not able to get Graf Harvest back from my graveyard. The other suggestions are also some solid choices that I haven't thought of before.Thank you.

Between the effects of Death Baron and Graf Harvest, these zombies cards are a pain. There's also a little bit of recursion from Dread Wanderer, Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead and Lord of the Undead which also prove to be difficult to play against.
Thanks for the upvote!
