Noxious Ghoul Discussion

Saljen on Zombie Tribal Commander

I also play a Zombie EDH Tribal deck, which started out as a budget list and has evolved over the years.

I'm going to make a bunch of suggestions, and I'm trying to keep each suggestion below $5. Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, and Undead Warchief are the most affordable Zombie anthems, and they add quite a lot of power to your Zombie army. Diregraf Colossus, Noxious Ghoul, Plague Belcher, and Vengeful Dead are excellent combo enablers for Gravecrawler shenanigans. They are also strong on their own merits, but turn into win-cons when you're sac/summoning Gravecrawler multiple times per turn. Cryptbreaker and Zombie Master adds quite a bit of utility. Graveborn Muse can be used to draw a lot over a turn or two, then sacrificed to stop the effect. Wonder in your graveyard gives you a flying Zombie army!

Buried Alive is a great fetch card. If you throw Wonder, Risen Executioner, and Gravecrawler all in the graveyard, then you basically just searched your library for 3 cards and put them in your hand for 3 mana. Great little combo. Plague Wind + Grave Betrayal is a fun little late game combo that takes control of all your opponents creatures, buffs them, and turns them into zombies. Each card is a great late game bomb on it's own as well. Rooftop Storm is basically the best non-creature Zombie card in the game, definitely include that bad boy. Underworld Connections is a pretty solid draw engine. Bontu's Monument is a great addition to any Zombie EDH list. Vanquisher's Banner is a solid card that provides a lot of value. Whip of Erebos can really save you as a way to gain life.

Hopefully I've given you a pretty good upgrade list. It takes time to get your perfect list put together, but I always find it helpful to have a good list of cards to upgrade to.

with 3.59 avg cmc it's too slow try to cut some of your big finisher to add more cycle and cheap minion. this deck really shine for its destructive snowboal kit if you are ahead with this deck it become REALLY disgusting

also you missed some really good zombie Lord of the Accursed, Gisa and Geralf, Zombie Master+Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is really sad for your opponent Noxious Ghoul, Prized Amalgam, Unbreathing Horde

land : where is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers also I'm not a big fan of Ghost Quarter, Arcane Lighthouse also Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Cavern of Souls Ik it cost 100$ but it's soooo good Unholy Grotto could also be good

planeswalker: liliana, death's majesty is all you need

artifact: Lightning Greaves. Worn Powerstone is a meme Expedition Map is usefull to get urbog, crypt or coffer Skullclamp we all know why it's good... why play Konda's Banner when Vanquisher's Banner exist Ashnod's Altar give lots of mana and you can respond to removal by sacrificing. Door of Destinies oh boy

instant: Tragic Slip, Soul Manipulation, Dispel, Disallow (oppinion: I personaly belive that having conterspell in this deck is good to protec yourselve from board wipe or graveyard hate)

sorcery: Living Death for pure chaos Ghoulcaller's Chant, Call to the Grave

just try to lower the average cmc of the deck and it is really good but the problem of zombie in general is graveward hate so try to adapt if they have too much graveward hate try to play less with the graveyard

@Akki0, Thx! your deck is amazing too, has some stuff I will definitely put in the deck in the near future. Nice tip on Orc Sureshot, have considered putting in Noxious Ghoul, but I'll risk killing Gisa. Orc doesn't go across the whole board, like the ghoul does, but bringing in a wave of zombies with Gisa will do just fine clearing the most threat at the moment. Also has great synergy with Gravecrawler, lots of shenanigans possible.

If you can afford it Training Grounds is really nice in this deck. Buried Alive can also be helpful if you have certain pieces you want to reanimate. Lich Lord of Unx can also be really helpful, given that he produces more zombies and has an ability that works well with having lots of zombies under your control. Also, given that you have Dictate of Erebos you may consider Grave Pact, as well as some additional sac-outlets like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Carrion Feeder, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, etc. Beyond those suggestions there is also the additional board wipe of Noxious Ghoul or Damnation, as well as the much needed card draw given by Rhystic Study, Phyrexian Arena, Graveborn Muse, and, two of my favorites for this kind of deck Careful Study and Frantic Search.

I have my own necromancy based EDH deck, albeit Gisa and Geralf and geared towards 1v1, if you'd like to look at some of the decisions I've made for a zombie-tribal EDH. It's called Bring Out Yer Dead!!! Happy brewing!

Yeah I agree with you zachi and thanks for helping fellow zombie player. These are just the kind of advises i was looking for. I think i'll go and have Undead Alchemist join the party. Comparing to Skaab Ruinator Alchemist seems far more useful. And perhaps i will replace Liliana's Reaver with Soulless One or Noxious Ghoul. Ill need to think which will serve me better at teaching a lesson to my gaming buddies :)

I think with zombies, there really arent really "Big hitters" but more so board swarm. your big guys will be your Diregraf Colossus and Unbreathing Horde where gisa will love that just to make a huge amount of zombies. I personally feel that the skabbs were poorly designed. If your meta is very creature heavy Noxious Ghoul might be worth looking into. Undead Alchemist can help get your board bigger while milling your appointments. Soulless One can, and probably will, turn into a huge hitter mid to late game. Shepherd of Rot might be worth looking into as well if you have a more control meta.

Diregraf Colossus and Noosegraf Mob are good zombie makers. Noxious Ghoul turns those zombies into removal. Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Sidisi, Undead Vizier let you convert your tokens into whatever card you need. Magus of the Coffers is another good ramp card.

goodair on Sidisi: all engines go!

Deranged Assistant & Millikin ramp/incremental mill/ keeping creature count high
Maze of Ith allows you to be more reckless with sidisi or more importantly kessig cagebreaker
Noxious Ghoul if your vs heavy token builds
Pathbreaker Ibex doesn't have haste like craterhoof, but its huge other x/x creatures
Vizier of Many Faces clone you can cast from your graveyard
Perpetual Timepiece, Memory's Journey graveyard protection
Svogthos, the Restless Tomb
