your mana base might want some work as well, this is basically a mono-black deck so having 1each island and mountain seems good. also no red/blue lands or mana rocks (izzet signet).

maybe just one Lashwrithe/Nightmare Lash type effect.

Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence could do work

I think you should take a hard look at all the non-zombies you have as well. Tribal decks i think work best when all the pieces help each other

Also your only way of dealing with enchantments is an overloaded cyclonic rift. maybe look at Oblivion Stone or Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

I know it goes against the theme but Goblin Bombardment is great!

Speaking of themes, what's your main game plan do you think/want? Commander kills and ways of synergizing with him or a zombie deck with a great commander?

@Vman: Thank you, and yes I do.. I mentioned this briefly in the description, but if you take a closer look at the manabase listed, you'll notice that with the exception of Cavern of Souls (and to a lesser extent, the fetchlands), literally every land in the deck is a "Swamp" already and therefore synergizes just fine with Lashwrithe..

The shortcut for the "spoiler" text is the black circle with the "!" in it..

i love the deck so much., except for Lashwrithe, you know it only works with swamps right? you have urbog sure but 1 copy isnt likely to be drawn. if you want a good equip you might aswell consider a sword or Batterskull for lifelink gvigilance and a germ

also off topic. how do you add the "show more" button? sorry i couldnt find out how on the forums. do i have to upgrade my membership or something?

Update: This deck underwent its first playtest today. The results were overall a substantial improvement over the previous iteration (a plain bad deck that used Kambal, Consul of Allocation as a commander, and thus had none of my versatile blue cards).

Things I was happy about:

Game 1:

-It was quick. I was caught by a situation where he seemed to ramp much more efficiently than I, and he was using my artifacts against me by way of Armory Automaton. I summmoned a zombie army with Army of the Damned but he was able to off me before they untapped despite my Fog Bank.

Result: LOSS

Game 2:

-He ramped extremely ineffectively, because he simply couldn't manage to draw one of his deck's colors. I built up past 80 life at one point and finally broke through his defenses to win this one. My victory was a much slower, gradual process than his abrupt win in the first game.

Result: WIN

Game 3:

-Longest game of MTG that I've played in a long, long while. This game was probably well past 3 hours long and ended in a stalemate, with both of us trading off board superiority multiple times in epic ways.

-Dropping Phylactery Lich and Fog Bank on the same turn, effectively freezing my opponent's attackers in their tracks. This allowed me to claw my way back into a match that was as good as lost. I built up to army superiority following that and then he board wiped me.

-He had a nasty setup, again including Armory Automaton and at one point was operating with my Lashwrithe equipped getting +9/+9 from the Lashwrithe alone. This is with multiple artifact buffers equipped as well, and a red attacker that gave his Automaton doublestrike and lifelink. But I answered him with a steady card draw mechanism in Oloro, eventually growing my mana pool enough to exile twice using Dark Impostor in a single turn with mana left over.

This lead to him board wiping me, and the game finally ended in a stalemate when we both simply ran out of time that we had allotted to magic cards for the day. Needless to say this was an exciting end to the day.


So my deck's new iteration went 1-1-1 on the first day of play, and I'm not too disappointed.

I built this thing for black deck constructionMono black deckbuilder's toolbox. Playtesting should tell you a lot about how to go about things. If you have trouble with tokens (and in a pinch, artifacts and enchantments), Ratchet Bomb. Planeswalkers Pithing Needle. Staying into the midgame, Whip of Erebos. Profane Command and Lashwrithe are more situational, but awesome.

Good luck, and happy testing.

I'll have to agree with previous comments that this is just a mono-black devotion deck that you decided to throw some recursive creatures into, along with Lord of the Accursed and called mono-black zombies. This isn't to say the deck is bad, as a Mono-black Midrange player myself I will attest this. But this is far from a Zombie tribal deck as advertised.

If you really wanted to build a Zombie Tribal deck, I'd reccomend a green splash, which would easily be affordable considering the amount of fetches you play, in order to play Collected Company.

Another fatty you should be playing in zombie tribal is Plague Belcher. Since you can easily kill a Gravecrawler or any other recursive creature, it's a 5/4 menance that can easily take over a game (With Menace to boot!)

Of course if you were to play zombies, cards like Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead all become excellent options.

If you aren't going to take advantage of the Zombie tribe, I'd recommend moving Gifted Aetherborn to the maindeck, and cutting your zombie sub-theme since basically all your creatures turns 1-3 can't really block anything at all.

Also, cards like Lashwrithe can show up because with fatties like Kalitas you can just win games swinging for upwards of 9 power with lifelink a turn. (Also goes really well with Obliterator)

Also, if this deck is meant to be played competitively, run Liliana, the Last Hope, if in the sideboard if not the mainboard. The reason for this is becuase she can hold off small aggressive creatures, as well as fetch your zombies that you are already playing (cards like Gravecrawler and Bloodghast, and the best part, SHE CAN RECUR FULMINATOR MAGES! something this deck needs to do to beat decks like tron.

If you want any further help, feel free to look at my primer for all mono-black needs!

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Lashwrithe would be very interesting in this deck!

If you don't own any swords just stick with Lashwrithe.

Sword of Fire and Ice is the best one though. Followed by Sword of Light and Shadow.
