This is gonna be a long post, so just bear with me but I can pretty much tell you what this deck needs.

Taking Out for 100

Carrion Crow, Fog Bank, Dread Slayer, Deathbringer Thoctar, Geralf's Masterpiece, Gnawing Zombie, Consuming Abberation, Hunted Phantasm, Invisible Stalker, King macar, The Gold-Cursed, Lich Lord of Unx, Master of the Feast, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Plague Belcher, Rockslide Elemental, Sepulchral Primordial, Siren of the Silent Song, Thassa, God of the Sea, Torrent Elemental (Not Legal for your deck cause of green btw), Murder, Unlicensed Disintegration, Unsytche, Killer of Kings, Bontu's Monument, Waste Not, Quest for the Gravelord, Intruder Alarm, Honden of Night's Reach, Honden of Infinite Rage, Feast on the Fallen, Argivian Restoration, Barter in blood, Banefire


These are not 100% drop all your cards and throw these in here, these are just what I think you could benefit from if you were wanting an improvement or 2. If you don't like them then don't get them.

Attrition - is a good card if you were looking for a sac outlet and removal

Damnation, Decree of Pain, Life's Finale, Toxic Deluge, Blasphemous Act, Oblivion Stone are all great board wipe cards. I would suggest take out your spot removal for all of these.

No Mercy - Kinda like Propaganda to keep people from attacking

Slaughter Pact - I know what I said about spot removal, but a 0 mana kill spell is a great card for stopping things such as combos and instant speed threats

Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, razaketh, the foulblooded , Gamble good tutor abilities

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - good all around and can go infinite with Triskelion which I think every EDH deck should have atleast 1 infinite for when things go south

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a must in a zombie deck. In a 4 player game, this is gonna be a huge problem with opponents.

Victimize, Reanimate, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Living Death, and Dread Return are gonna be your solid Reanimation. Would also try and get hands on The Scarab God but I wouldn't until it rotates out of standard for price reasons

Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence are gonna be good for late game drawing.

Geth, Lord of the Vault is an absolute beast in reanimator decks and can sometimes win the game alone depending on targets. Also brings back artifacts that get destroyed.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is a great card overall with a game ending ultamite.

Buried Alive and Entomb are good fuel for graveyard.

Contingency Plan and Fact or Fiction are good for filling graveyard and card draw.

Raving Dead is a bomb for combat.

Urabrask the Hidden is pretty useful espicially against aggro decks so you can slow them down a bit.

Chaos Warp solid removal

Great thing about grixis is you get good colors for shutdowns. such as Contamination, Blood Moon, and Magus of the Moon.

Clever Impersonator and Phyrexian Metamorph can be used either for your stuff to boost or if an opponent got something spicy you want.

Would also try and get the mana rocks as well such as Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, and Grim Monolith

I know this was a lot, but I just kinda made a list of cards and I love zombie decks (considering it was my first edh deck.) thanks for viewing it

Thanks for the feedback, folks. I was hoping I was doing something wrong in the Gatherer search and that cards like Life's Finale were an older form of deck removal before 'removed from the game' became a thing, but no such luck.

I kinda wanted to avoid things like milling because I wanted a better way to deal with what's in an opponent's graveyard and not just pulling little creatures at random with Tariel, Reckoner of Souls.

It looks like I'm going to have to go down the route of milling and then exiling unwanted cards from graveyards. Unfortunately the only repeatable eldrazi processing effects aren't in Tariel's colours, but still the targeted exiling and then processing is hilarious and I think I might have to build a deck around that at some point.

Thanks again!

Life's Finale was literally in the op's question

Only three cards do what you ask according to this scryfall search: Grinning Totem, Life's Finale, and Quiet Speculation. The first two, you already have, but that third one is not even good enough even if Tariel had blue because of the fact that it by its very nature cannot find creatures.

Sorry, but WotC just hasn't played around with this idea enough yet.

As others have mentioned, the other way would be to use either mill cards or processors with cards that can exile cards from libraries.

You know you could always target yourself with the Thoughtseize and discard something good to reanimate. Behold the Beyond is good at that. Secondly I think Life's Finale would be good here too

Hey there. I'm putting together a... currently somewhat janky Tariel, Reckoner of Souls deck with which I want to be able to control opponents' graveyards. I have plenty of effects that exile specific cards from graveyards to get rid of little creatures I don't want, but I'm also looking for cards that function similar to Buried Alive, but for an opponent. So far I'm aware of Life's Finale and Grinning Totem but haven't found anything else yet.

I'd rather not go for general milling. I think I might have to resort to targeted discard effects like Thoughtseize, but in multiplayer it's very difficult to get much bang for your buck games with those.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

chadsansing Hey, thanks for the upvote, glad you liked my deck. I try to make decks around not so used commanders, love the feeling of somebody asking me "what's that commander do?". Also check out my other deck, one for Jarad you may see something to help your other deck as their both Golgari. Threats of Golgari

As for tutors, this is me personally never really to big a fan of it. I had Sidisi, Undead Vizier, but removed him out. Nothing wrong about tutors, but they're just too expensive money wise, and can sometimes feel too powerful at times for my liking.

As for Toxic Deluge I actually have that in my Jarad deck, but decided I wanted to play Life's Finale to test it out. Also I want board wipes that will not take out my commander when he has Darksteel Plate.
