Nyx Weaver Should definitely be in here I methinks. Gravecrawler also works well since you will have the zombies you need to bring it back. Varolz, the Scar-Striped would give you something to do with all the creatures you mill. Jace, the Living Guildpact may have also found a home.

@APPLE01DOJIf he added Vengevine and Lotleth Troll he'd basically change his entire structure of his deck and his removal suite to make it more consistent in that version. If he adds Lotleth Troll he needs Vengevine or some type of reanimation style which then would lead to a different deck. He then would also need Gravecrawler and the like to make it more consistent. I'm in the assumption he has most of these cards above and he wants to tweak it to make it more competitive, unless he has none of the above then the sky is the limit, otherwise I would recommend beefing up his removal suite and tweaking slight here and theres to make it more effective. On a different note I do like your Zombiepox deck!

He still has 8 other reanimation targets though slovakattack. While I would suggest removing a Tidehollow Sculler and some Gravecrawler s, I'm tempted to just say remove all the Gravecrawler s for Lingering Souls . Then you would really need to run Phyrexian Arena over Dark Confidant .

you do realize there's an infinite combo here that you should exploit.. Gravecrawler + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Rooftop Storm ... tie this in with Blood Artist ... game over

Thanks guys!

kiloken That's a fair question. The zombie subtheme is almost accidental... If not for Undead Alchemist and Gravecrawler it would matter less what type the other creatures were. The main reason not to include Rooftop Storm is that there are only 5 cards would enable.

I like Grave Betrayal , but feel it's too dependent on the opponent(s) for my tastes. This deck doesn't have much spot removal.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is worth considering for some extra resilience.

Well, Korlash is kind of key to what I try to do. Initially I used him for other reasons (I just noticed I haven't changed the description of the deck at all), but now I mostly use his grandeur ability to ramp out some swamps and make Corrupt lethal, and I use Ghoulcaller's Chant to recur him, although I have plenty of other ways to, particularly Unholy Grotto and Tortured Existence .

Phyrexian Altar is great in my opinion. Combos oh so well with Gravecrawler and Grave Pact for a one-sided boardwipe every turn, if I have another zombie out. Additionally, whenever I'm about to wipe the board with Living Death , I can just sac all of my guys with the altar before casting it so they come back to the field (and also tap that much less land to do it!).

Ashnod's Altar was what initially got me going, but making that mana into any color mana is much more useful in a colored deck like this (as opposed to, say, an artifact deck that could reap full benefit from Ashnod).

I currently swapped out some of my lords for a set of Diregraf Captain , as his ability mixed with Gravecrawler & Phyrexian Altar loops make for an instant win. I'm toying with taking out Tortured Existence for some Buried Alive , though.

Oh my gyad, Khanye, you just made me realize how much money's gone into this deck. Granted, this is my oldest deck and this has been a work in progress over the course of nearly 2 years, but still. $200. I'm depressed now.

But on a more mechanical note, this initially was a Dimir Zombie deck that ramped into an Army of the Damned , then Killing Wave with a Captain out for lots of life loss. Funnily enough, I wound up trashing the blue to avoid spending money on dual lands, but I suppose that's a moot point by now.

I might make a separate Dimir Zombie deck at this point, since I have most of the cards I would need save a new set of Gravecrawler . Geralf's Messenger will probably find his way into this one, though.
