Noxious Ghoul Discussion

DrukenReaps on Rule #2: The Double Tap v2.0

3 weeks ago

Well at this point most of the good ideas might be taken but from a more casual perspective here are some possible inclusions: Lord of the Accursed, Vengeful Dead, Binding Mummy, Forgotten Creation, Corpse Harvester, Noxious Ghoul. I especially like Noxious Ghoul with Endless Ranks of the Dead or Liliana, the Last Hope's emblem.

As for potential cuts I think your weakest cards are Tidehollow Sculler, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, and Reconnaissance. Each certainly has solid uses but without having played the deck or gone against it these seem to be the smallest effects. I hesitate to mention Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist for cuts because they win me games often but zombies have at least 3 similar effects in the tribe. Those effects being on a zombie vs not one a zombie is something to consider.

The list already looks awesome... Great job putting this together!

Boza on Varina deck needs help eliminating ...

The cards from the maybeboard that standout above the rest are:
Gravespawn Sovereign is awesome if you can find a way to give your zombies vigilance. Something like Radiant Destiny will help with that. Gray Merchant of Asphodel will help with finishing off someone or gaining some life and is useful effect to have around. Noxious Ghoul is super good with tokens or something like altar + gravecrawler.

Commander's Sphere is awesome in tricolor decks.

Cleansing Nova is very good - you have low numbers of artifacts and it is an extra boardwipe.

The rest are mediocre, given that you are building a more combo-oriented deck. Things like heartstone, training grounds, libreary of leng, orb of dreams are too niche to be part of the mainboard.

Some more suggestions I've found are Gravespawn Sovereign, Zombie Trailblazer, Plague Belcher, Noxious Ghoul, Zombie Master, Fleshbag Marauder, Cryptbreaker, Corpse Harvester, Corpse Connoisseur, Buried Alive, Noosegraf Mob, and Phyrexian Delver.

Every tribal deck that I build and that Ive seen others build typically have about 35-ish members of the tribe in the deck, so maybe cutting some of the 5 mana reanimation and other mediocre cards for more zombies would be wise.

Some suggestions to cut are Corpse Hauler, Divination, Necromantic Summons, Rise from the Grave, Sightless Ghoul, Butcher Ghoul, Highborn Ghoul, Skeletal Vampire (unless you're planning on running death baron then definitely keep him), Walking Corpse, Servant of Tymaret and Sidisi's Pet.

Cheers for comment and +1 Doombeard. Yeah Noxious Ghoul is a zombie I haven’t managed to get a hold of yet. Think it would also work really well with Gravecrawler and any sack outlet.

really cool and fresh take on a zombie deck, and a Muldrotha deck. Have you considered Noxious Ghoul as a possible addition. Works really well with Endless Ranks of the Dead, as if your opponents are paying anything other than Zombies, they in a world of hurt. Definitely a +1

MatthijsTreuren, thanks so much for the suggestions!

I'll definitely consider the lands. After receiving two comments about upping the basic count, I'm really going to have to consider that. I'm going to do some research and learn why that's better.

As for the zombies, I've considered them all multiple times! Noxious Ghoul seems like it would produce board wipes less reliably than my Archfiend of Ifnir, and it can hit some of my humans and demons. Sidisi, Undead Vizier seem better to me than Corpse Harvester, as it's an ETB trigger.

I have been thinking of card draw enchantments like Phyrexian Arena, and will put more thought into it after more playtesting.

Some good lands to add that are not to expensive for your deck might be Isolated Chapel, Drowned Catacomb and Glacial Fortress. Otherwise just run some more basic lands instead of those tapped lands, even in three colours that is in my opinion a better optioin.

Also for the zombies, you should run Noxious Ghoul and one of my favourties Corpse Harvester a great tutor and sac outlet. In combination with Gravecrawler that card is just amazing.

A good add for card draw might be Phyrexian Arena a bit expensive and hard to find but the card is so good almost an auto include for any black deck I make. I hope you can use these recommendations.
