Necromancer's Covenant Discussion

JararoNatsu on W/B Zombie Control (w/ Amonkhet)

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.

or you could keep white and maybe throw in some Necromancer's Covenant

Personally, I'd add blue to a W/B zombie EDH deck (Maybe under Oloro, Ageless Ascetic for a placeholder). Then you get to add Traumatize to hit a creature-heavy player with before Necromancer's Covenant.

Y'all, I know that anybody can say this and I don't really have the written, dated, and signed document to back this up...but...

I called white zombies in Amonkhet!! and I'm pumped that I got it right.

My brother and I were talking about the new set, and I predicted that Amonkhet would use the Egyptian cult of the dead to bring a very W flavor to Zombies, who would be more like mummies.

I'm super pumped about this. First, it means I can finally build a Necromancer's Covenant tribal. Second, the new set so far seems full of these kinds of mechanics that push the envelope in new (and hopefully good) directions.

Anyone else vindicated on predictions so far?

Not that I think many people would care, but technically Necromancer's Covenant and Vulturous Zombie are not legal in the deck. Since your commander's color identity is blue/black/red. Only cards of those 3 colors and cards with no color identity (like most artifacts) are allowed.
