When Necromancer's Covenant enters the battlefield, exile all creature cards from target player's graveyard, then put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield for each card exiled this way.

Zombies you control have lifelink.

Necromancer's Covenant Discussion

With so many zombies, how can you not include Wayward Servant?! Same goes for Necromancer's Covenant and Anointer Priest.

FYI Necromancer's Covenant technically came out before Karador. It's from Alara Reborn.

Either way, one way I've seen people spew out masses of zombie tokens is by using Ghoulcaller Gisa and cards like Soulless One/Lord of Extinction which works awesome with Karador since you can just recur the sacrificed creature over and over. Also, Vampire Aristocrat et al let you sac the tokens and then sac the aristocrat to Gisa for twice the number of tokens. Something to think about. White would end up mostly being for support/removal etc.

So I've been wanting to build a zombie EDH with Karador, Ghost Chieftain since Necromancer's Covenant came out. The Amonkhet set kind of pushed me to really want to make this thing a reality. my deck, Zombie Token Revival (Work In Progress) needs some looking over. It's just a bunch of cards to be picked over, so I mostly just want suggestions to look at.

Ideally, this deck will win by spewing out so many zombies, that no one can block them all. Any suggestions in that realm are most appreciated.

Thank you for your suggestions! I don't think I'll use Path to Exile because the more creatures I exile, the less creatures there are for Vile Rebirth (if I even keep it) and Necromancer's Covenant. The deck could use more removal and hand attack, I agree. I've been looking for ways to improve those aspects of the deck. I would add Thoughtseize but they're just too expensive for me.

It could just be me, but I have a hard time seeing how I would proc Revolt on Fatal Push. That (and it's cost) is a deterrent for me. For now, I'll fit them in. I'll also try to fit in Gurmag Angler, but I'm not sure what I would remove for it.

I'm not a fan of unearth especially when zombies have such an easy time coming back without being exiled afterwords. I'm also not sure what red really adds to zombies. I would highly recommend looking into amonkhet and orzhov since that brought us more white zombie stuff and there is Necromancer's Covenant. Otherwise Gisa and Geralf and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born are strong and give rooftop access. Geth is really cool too if you want that route but limits you to black.

Ghoulcaller Gisa not a zombie herself so i don't know if it hurts your theme too much

Didn't know Necromancer's Covenant was a thing, glad to know. So you saw Plague Belcher so I'm guessing you saw Wayward Servant.
