Necromancer's Stockpile Discussion

dlamars on zomb trib

Hmm here's what I'd cut:

Necromancer's Stockpile too slow/expensive.

Far / Away not as good as Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos.

Also I think you could easily cut 3-4 lands. I personally like 35 in 1 to 2 color decks but 36-37 is pretty common. Hope that helps!

Chopwood on Army of Flies [Budget Zombies]

Okay, first of all, I would cut Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher and Forgotten Creation, they're simply not worth the mana cost. Always try to keep your curve low! Instead you should add Geralf's Messenger, it's a tad more expensive($), but it's a really good card, probably the best zombie card out there. Other zombies you should consider to add:

Plague Belcher - target your Gravecrawler turn 4 after combat and you've got a 5/4 with menace in combination with your opponent loosing 1 lige, plus you can cast Gravecrawler again. Potential trigger for both Diregraf Colossus and Prized Amalgam. Having Plague Belcher + Diregraf Captain in play at the same time strongly disencourages the opponent sweeping the board, since he/she will loose a lot of life.

Diregraf Ghoul - 2/2 for 1 mana, it's an okay card.

Cryptbreaker - Bit more expensive, but it can discard a Prized Amalgam, giveng you a nice 2/2 blocker, and gives you card advantage.

Relentless Dead - Also a bit more expensive, but this card is pure win, attack with it and if it dies you can return it to your hand and return a 1 cmc zombie to the battlefield, triggering Prized Amalgam.

Somewhat interesting zombies:

Dregscape Zombie

Gnawing Zombie

Lifebane Zombie - Sideboard

Zombie Outlander - Sideboard

Other spells:

Go for the Throat/Victim of the night - Nice removal, which that is the best depends on the local meta.

Dark Salvation - You can pay X=0, giving you a 1 mana kill spell if you have enough zombies. If you have a lot of mana that you can't use otherwise you get a couple of tokens. A solid card.

Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood/Read the Bones - Card draw is always good, pick one of them and have 2-3x.

For lands Choked Estuary is nice, 4x of it and 4x of Drowned Catacombs + 14 swamps should be a good enough mana base.

Personally I'd consider cutting Unbreathing Horde, Butcher Ghoul, Cemetery Reaper (you want to keep your GY), Dimir Aqueduct, Bone Splinters, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Necromancer's Stockpile and maybe Rotting Rats in favor of the above.

Some more expensive card you can consider in the future:Watery Grave + Polluted Delta - Shock and Fetch lands are almost always good.

Fatal Push - Great removal.

Liliana, Death's Majesty/ The Scarab God - 1x of one of those, it's a bit win-more, but it can be nice to have on in the deck.

Creeping Tar Pit

Death Baron/Lord of the Undead/Undead Warchief- Great lords.

Hata98 on The Scarab God Makes His Triumphant Entrance

I would do that, but if I were to do that then I would probably put in Necromancer's Stockpile instead of Zombie Infestation. Plus even though this deck has lots of graveyard recursion, you still have to find it, which ends up being a problem, and then there's also the problem of graveyard hate, so I don't want to put that much important stuff early on in the game with discard effects. Especially when most of my playgroup has mass graveyard exiles.

lamogio: It is hard to argue with adding Chromatic Lantern as another rock. I will have to see if I can fit it in. I think I just have to try out the deck first before I move my mana base around to much.

CaptSillva: Thank you for the suggestions. Do you have a Scarab list yourself?

Necromancer's Stockpile is fairly interesting. It if you have a easy way to reanimate, there is no real downside here.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip: Although she is not a Zombie, all of her Planeswalker abilities work well with the deck. I will keep my eyes out for a copy.

From Under the Floorboards: At first glance, three creatures for the price of one card seems ok. However, this is pretty back if you stop and think about it. However, people will argue the Madness ability makes it worth including... but just look at Army of the Damned. 8cmc = 13 creatures. Floorboards says 8cmc = 5 creatures... Pretty bad, even compared to flashback Army of the Damned. This card is to situational, and kind of lackluster.

Liliana's Mastery is not bad, but I would rather stick with creature Lords that I can reanimate.

Thank you again for the feedback! Don't forget to +1 if you like the deck!!!

I cant see how you will fill your gravreyard very quick and you will be stuck with a lot of high CMC cards in your hand.

Definitely add in Stinkweed Imp as a way to fill your graveyard and get deathtouch (replace the bonepicker).

Add in another way to get key cards into your graveyard to reanimate like Cryptbreaker, Dark Deal, Heir of Falkenrath, Liliana of the Veil, Necromancer's Stockpile, Pack Rat, Pale Rider of Trostad, Sinister Concoction, Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Skirsdag Supplicant and Zombie Infestation are some good choices in mono black to fill your graveyard initially.

Red has some great options to fill the graveyard, like Faithless Looting if you decide to add another colour.

MagicBlues on Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

I like your take on Sidisi. It seems to include enough Zombie matters cards for your tokens to be relevant while also having a good amount of enablers. The following cards are enablers I think might be quite good:

Embalmer's Tools: works similarly to Altar of Dementia in allowing you to turn your Zombies sideways for more or let you combo off with Undead Alchemist

Necromancer's Stockpile: Cycle trough your deck while creating an army (works wonders if you add some cards with Dredge)

I guess I would cut Dowsing Shaman since you run only four enchantments

hey there ... looks like some fun stuff...

other/additional considerations

Necromancer's Stockpile, Veilborn Ghoul, Oversold Cemetery, Undead Gladiator, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Corpse Harvester, Shepherd of Rot, Vengeful Dead ...
