Grave Titan Discussion

Karzalar on Army of the Spoop *Needs Help*

Reanimator suggestions : BIG creatures like your Skeletal Wurms are welcome, since you won't pay the mana costs for them - you'll reanimate them. You need some discard spells or self-milling.

Since you like regenerate...

Creatures : Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Magus of the Abyss (destroy your creature? Regenerate it before!), Skeletal Vampire

Otherwise, big creatures : Demon of Death's Gate, Grave Titan, Griselbrand, Lord of the Void, Massacre Wurm...

Infect suggestions : Regenerate could shine here. Enchant your creatures with the like of Phyresis or Glistening Oil, or target them with Tainted Strike and then regenerate to keep them on the battlefield if they're targeted with removal.

Since you already have Skithiryx, Infect seems like a given.

In ALL cases, you need some draw spells. Read the Bones, Painful Lesson, Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood are choices in this matter. It all depends if you want to target only yourself or you also want the choice of dealing 2 points of damage to try to finish low life opponents.

If you decide on which kind of deck you want to make, just say so i'll help more.

Yeah I'm thinking Rakdos with Dark Deal, Waste Not, and Living End at the core with lots of red burn that exiles so you're opponent doesn't get their creatures back. Then the creatures should all have ridiculous ETB triggers. Grave Titan and Inferno Titan come to mind, but there's many many solid options.

Grave Titan is pretty alright, I hear.

Love-in-Theory, thanks for checking my zombie brew. Yes I did consider Grave Titan, but I really want this brew to be zombies only, unless it's just to good to pass up. Which leads to my great thanks of suggesting Levitation. I liked wonder but it was so awful flavor-wise. Call to the Grave is really good, and I do have one, but it's just so mean and I don't want to draw hate. This deck is not meant to win every game, but more so be very resilient. Army of the Damned probably should be in here. I may add it in eventually.

I think Wonder would be a great and easy way to give your zombies flying. You could always use Levitation instead.

I'm sure you considered Grave Titan?

Rite of Replication + Grave Titan can get real nasty.

Call to the Grave can keep the board pretty clear of non zombies, though it'll draw hate for sure.

Then again, doing good in a game of magic will draw hard regardless.

Oh, and Army of the Damned because damn it feels good to put a boat load of zombies onto the field.

This deck looks awesome, but as the above comment says, looks a bit slow.

My question is how are your matchups against the top tier decks? With the lack of Path to Exile and Fatal Push, which is a bit odd, I can see why you don't, but I really do think you need them both, in some number. Your speed isn't fast enough to keep up the aggro decks of the format, but that's my opinion, I think you should add some more early game interaction, and possibly switch the Iona out for the Elesh Norn.

Also, have you thought of using Grave Titan as another target? I just really like that card, so it's a slight bias there.

Final thoughts, Abrupt Decay could be helpful here. Not at all sure how to fit it in, but I think it could do work.

Hope that helps a bit!

Herald of Leshrac is heavy on mana but is some super-secret tech that dunks on midrange and control decks. Grave Titan is also above the curve you were asking for, but it's worth mentioning because of how powerful it is.

I agree with others on Abyssal Persecutor. It's probably the best budget beatstick in mono-black in Modern. Desecration Demon isn't really viable in metagames with Lingering Souls.

The other thing to think about are the larger infect creatures, which are Phyrexian Crusader, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Phyrexian Juggernaut, and Phyrexian Vatmother. You lose the ability to win via normal damage and life loss, but you gain creatures that are really efficient for their mana cost.

Distended Mindbender and Abundant Maw are also reasonable when combined with things like Solemn Simulacrum. Speaking of Eldrazi, don't forget the plethora of colorless creatures that you can jam into your mono-black deck. That includes stuff like Wurmcoil Engine, Duplicant, Grid Monitor, Silent Arbiter, Scuttling Doom Engine, and Steel Hellkite.

Lastly, there's Demigod of Revenge. You can combine them with Smallpox and other such discard outlets for maximum value. Nothing like dumping 15 power into play on turn 5!

Hey just wanted to let you know Composite Golem can't be in here since its color identity is five colors. You can use Grave Titan + Ashnod's Altar with Nim Deathmantle to make though.
