Lord of the Undead Discussion

I could see Lord of the Accursed in here as a shift in meta. Lord of the Undead just helps against control decks or grindier midrange decks. Decks like Burn or Death’s Shadow that can pick us apart. I like Lord of the Undead or even Cemetery Reaper over Lord of the Accursed in control matchups. And I’ll take Death Baron (also considering Cemetery Reaper) for aggro.

Lord of the Accursed doesn’t add much more than a basic Lord in control matchups and I feel like there are better options for aggro matchups.

Hey, I like your deck, but I think you can reduce the avg. CMC a lot. There's several low mana cost cards to consider which will not only strengthen the synergies, but also make gameplay faster. Cards to consider adding:

Zombies/Creatures:

Other:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Ever After
  • Kokusho, the Evening Star
  • Noosegraf Mob
  • Noxious Gearhulk
  • Necromantic Selection
  • Scourge of Nel Toth
  • Army of the Damned
  • Decree of Pain
  • Final Parting
  • Vengeful Pharaoh
  • Risen Executioner
  • Supernatural Stamina
  • Sword of the Animist

Good luck with your deck.

I would recommend the following cards, assuming you are going for a mono black tribal zombie deck

Death Baron - deathtouch is cool

Grave Titan - not a zombie himself, but a great generator of them

Lord of the Undead - Bump and graveyard return

Undead Warchief - Cheaper and more painful zombies

Diregraf Colossus - Speaks for itself

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - Give's everything but humans you control undying (and is a zom)

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Speaks for itself

Plague Belcher - Neat Lad

Call to the Grave - Probably never leaves the battlefield via sac, totally ruins opponents board presence until they can destroy it

A Doom Blade or Fatal Push couldn't hurt either

Some Tribal necessities too:

Coat of Arms

Cavern of Souls - Though if money is tight don't even bother

Obelisk of Urd

Door of Destinies

Herald's Horn

That's all I can think of for now, let me know if you want more recommendations for cards to add. As for the cards you currently have, I would recommend the following:

Remove Liliana's Mastery - 5 Mana for a bump and zombie, seems to me like there are better options

Replace Thoughtseize with Duress if money is a concern.

Remove Patriarch's Bidding - It's a cool card, but you have better ways to bring your stuff back (like Zombie Apocalypse for one more , and it also allows tribal opponents to come back. Also $$$$$$$

I've been playing The Scarab God Zombie EDH deck for a long while now. He's a great combo commander because his passive ability is aggressive and helps you hit combos while his active ability perfectly plays along with the zombie theme.

That being said, you've made some weird card choices, especially among your creatures.

Here's some Zombie's that I'd suggest to replace the many non-Zombie creatures you're running:

Balthor the Defiled, Cryptbreaker, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Titan, Graveborn Muse, Gravecrawler (this is the most important combo piece in the deck), Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Havengul Lich, Lazav, the Multifarious (as a shapeshifter, he is a Zombie), Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Accursed, Lord of the Undead, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Noxious Ghoul, Razaketh, the Foulblooded (can pull all combo pieces in 1 turn, and play all 4 for 6 mana), Relentless Dead, Risen Executioner, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand (not a zombie, but fills your graveyard with them and has built in removal). These guys would go a long way to improving the consistency and power level of your deck.

Here's a few non-zombie cards that synergize with them very well:

Attrition (repeatable removal and sac engine), Dictate of Erebos+Grave Pact (combos well with Gravecrawler+sac outlet), Secrets of the Dead (works with all the ways we can play zombies from our graveyard and combos with Gravecrawler), Herald's Horn (draw + ramp), Urza's Incubator (ramp), Vanquisher's Banner (pump + draw), Whip of Erebos (lifelink zombies + graveyard play), Buried Alive (use this to put Gravecrawler, Wonder, and Risen Executioner into your graveyard for a great little combo that instantly gives you access to 3 cards), Search like Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, and Diabolic Intent helps to get out combo pieces.

The main combo I keep talking about is Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler + a sac outlet, usually Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, and something to abuse like Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos, Diregraf Captain/Plague Belcher/Noxious Ghoul/Bontu's Monument. These are all pieces that are individually good, but when put together will instantly win you the game in one way or another. Razaketh, the Foulblooded can be used to grab all 4 combo pieces, then you only need to play Rooftop Storms and you can play the rest of the combo for free! It's a really great card in black combo decks like this.

Anyways, feel free to take a look at my deck if you want any ideas. Zombies are my favorite tribal and are always a blast to play. I love that they can be so combo heavy, yet still be an unstoppable horde if you can't combo out thanks to all the +1/+1 anthems that Zombies get. Good luck with your deck!

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!
