MosaicDryhop What are your thoughts on Haunted Dead. I've seen some people add one copy of it to their deck. Also thank you so much for your suggestions.

I've been thinking about creating a modern deck for ages but nothing has really jumped out at me as attractive until a couple of quite recent discoveries - the not very wallet friendly "End Foretold" and some cheeky use of Elder Deep-Fiend for fun and profit.

Since the EDF approach is a bit more realistic for me right now I wanted to gather some help pursuing a direction, I'm not planning on taking the deck to the pro tour or anything but I do want it to kick a bit of butt.

I can't totally decide if I should go Temur (seems like value town), Grixis (for awesome black removal) or even just stay in UR but I know I want to use a starting point of:

4x Elder Deep-Fiend, 4x Kozilek's Return, 4x Champion of Wits

I've considered several angles including using Glorybringer which I like for milking some value out of before emerge-saccing it; adding numerous sweepers like Sweltering Suns; Haunted Dead and Prized Amalgam; a discard package to control the early game and make sure the evil octopus gets to come to the party; Glyph Keeper; Cathartic Reunion and/or Burning Inquiry. I'm not fond of the Arbor Elf / Utopia Sprawl route like a popular SaffronOlive build, I want a different direction.

Not so bothered about covering the mana base just now, I can get to that later unless anyone has any amazing or 'out there' suggestions to discuss.

Thanks in advance, I'm excited to see if some ideas get rolling.

Madhava on Zombie Self Mill Trying Again (Please Help!)

If you want to be competitive in a Modern setting, then first decide if you want to play Dredge, or play Zombie Tribal. Sadly, if you try to 'pseudo-dredge', it will be the most difficult thing in the world to pilot. Either dredge, or don't dredge. Forget about anything halfway.

Dredge is primarily a RED deck, supported by black & green. It may run a handful of blue or white cards Prized Amalgam, Narcomoeba, infrequently Lingering Souls ...but the idea is not to hand-cast these. With Dredge, you want a majority of nonland cards which are useful/usable from the 'yard (Darkblast, Raven's Crime, et al). Sidisi has no place here; he's slow & he can't recur himself. Dredge cards are the only self-mill engine you'll need.

Dredge runs a handful of zombies; Amalgam, Haunted Dead, & Vengeful Pharaoh. Gravecrawler is questionable, because you won't always have the zombies to recur him with. Dread Wanderer might be better. Bloodghast is better still... albeit not a zombie.

Dredge relies on fast early-game red plays to kick-start the mill engine; Faithless Looting, Insolent Neonate, Cathartic Reunion, Burning Inquiry. Plus Life from the Loam is in there to make sure you hit your land drops. Once you can begin dredging, you will continue doing so all game.

Zombie Tribal can be built a bit more loosely. This is a black deck which sometimes splashes green for interaction (Abrupt Decay, et al), or white for Tidehollow Sculler + key sideboard pieces (Stony Silence), or blue for The Scarab God ...although Scarab God is a tad slow for Modern, so he would need plenty of interaction to support him (Inquisition of Kozilek + Thoughtseize, for starters).

But Zombie Tribal primarily just wants fast, solid, value creatures: Gravecrawler. Cryptbreaker. Relentless Dead. Geralf's Messenger. Diregraf Colossus. A few lords, too; Death Baron + Lord of the Accursed. Ideally, you'd want a few Mutavaults, too... so don't splash more than one color (mono-black is fine!). Try to keep the land-count low-ish... maybe < 21 ...unless you're running Scarab Gods or Dark Salvations.

Your manabase, as it is now, is not doing a lot of good towards either option. Three fetchlands + zero anycolor lands cannot reliably support 3 colors, ever. But that's okay, because neither option calls for 3 colors.

You'll either want to get Gemstone Mines + Mana Confluences + some fetches which find mountains, for Dredge... or else get a few Cavern of Souls, Mutavaults, + a pile of swamps, if you want to build zombies.
