Lord of the Undead Discussion

UpsetYoMama on Thraximundar and his Army of Undead

Recurring Nightmare is on the official banlist, by the way.

In EDH, you want to try to get as much value as you can from each spell. Or in a couple of cases, there is a better card out there than what you are using. As such, I would replace these with the following:

  1. Stoic Rebuttal >> Counterspell
  2. Smelt >> Vandalblast, Shattering Spree, or By Force
  3. Murder >> Hero's Downfall
  4. Cannibalize >> Malicious Affliction

I have a monoblack zombie deck and a couple of cards that are always amazing in there are Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Fleshbag Marauder, Cemetery Reaper, Undead Warchief, and Lord of the Undead.

You may want to consider adding more ramp to the deck, as right now you have a lot of high cost spells. The first step I would do is to add the different signets for your colors (i.e. Rakdos Signet). Other mana rocks that you might consider include Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern.

I hope some of that helped.

speciaiev on * needs help Mikaeus EDH*

Some suggestions Coat of Arms, Ghoulcaller's Chant, From Under the Floorboards, Zombie Apocalypse, Lord of the Undead, Grave Titan to name a few options.

With Mikaeus, the Unhallowed as your Commander you can add a Triskelion for a win-con. It's a cheap trick if you want to go that route.

Anything that spawns extra zombies or buffs zombies I find useful. Ramp is important to get the big guys out with any speed. The rest is just preference.

My Walking Dead is my Zombie deck.

Looks fun! Have you considered Lord of the Undead? Seems like a better choice than Desiccated Naga, giving other zombies +1/+1 which suits your zombie theme.

have you tried Lich Lord of Unx?? Also what do you think of Lord of the Undead as a lord? perhaps Gisa and Geralf better. two cards I'm trying out, jw.

How about -2 Diregraf Colossus, +2 Unbreathing Horde?

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!
