Oversold Cemetery might prove rather useful, doing damage for pulling a useful creature back to your hand from your graveyard to either reuse or recycle. Palace Siege offers a similar effect.

Love the name, by the way...

SatisfactionDay Those are all great additions! I'd completely forgotten about Oversold Cemetery! I'm definitely going to consider all of them!

MahBoi100 thank you! I completely didn't see this and it is definitely going in the deck. There are a few other cards I plan on adding, Herald's Horn, Phyrexian Arena, Oversold Cemetery and Cover of Darkness. Also Cryptic Gateway.

I'll definitely be checking your list out as well

Coward_Token: The real issue with Praetor's Grasping for a wincon (no matter how hilarious) is that I have very few ways to make non-black mana here, honestly. If I just need something GONE, though, Bitter Ordeal fills that niche.

ShutUpMokuba: Honestly, Oversold Cemetery is rarely as good as it looks in this kind of deck. I only run 25 creatures, so there's rarely a huge number of creatures hanging out in my GY... and I have a lot of to-battlefield reanimation already. Dawn of the Dead is interesting, especially since I can sacrifice stuff to put it back in GY... but honestly, it's just slow: 5 mana, and only has an effect on the next upkeep.

Awaken the Erstwhile has been a little hit or miss recently, so it MIGHT get the axe... but Genesis Chamber is an incredibly strong source of tokens, and a combo piece too ;) I'd never leave home without it.

Wouldn't bitter ordeal already fill that slot?


Oversold Cemetery seems cool. But with all the cheap reanimation like reanimate, animate dead and what not, it seems a bit inferior despite the value it can accrue long term. His deck storms off at times through all the card draw, rituals and ramp. Awaken the Erstwhile is an absolute powerhouse! Draw a bunch of cards through token fodder, cast awaken stripping everyone of their hands, then using yawg's ability to place counters on all the zombies, draw a bunch of cards and proliferate to kill all/most of the zombies.

Genesis Chamber is a combo piece and usually provides him with more value.

Hey Last_Laugh !

Thanks for the comments and suggestion mate!

Lets start with New Blood one of my favourite cards in the deck. I'm having so much fun running this one !! Stealing a Utvara Hellkite did not happen yet but boy oh boy that would be bonkers <:D but the ones i did steal and are worth mentioning are Omnath, Locus of Rage that play was ridiculous because i already had a wide board of vamps including Elenda, the Dusk Rose + Yahenni, Undying Partisan so i just went full out and on the ES i sacced all my vamps to Yahenni ! Every vamp that died triggered Omnath for 3 ping damage and was a fuel for Elenda feeding her with counters and saccing her as last to obtain a wide board again and doing it all over to finish the table off :) Will never forget that one !! A Vampire Blightsteel Colossus is also a game ending steal :P I highly recommend New Blood every vamp deck should run it imo.

Oversold Cemetery & Scapegoat did have a slot in my deck for multiple weeks but most of the time they did not shine the way i thought they would, and a few times those cards were a dead card in hand. Meaning i drawed the Oversold Cemetery early game and had no vamps or to less in my GY to trigger it and at those points that card only slowed me down and that didn't fit my aggro very well :)

Scapegoat is a very nice card ! But instead of removing my board presence back to my hand i rather protect my board with cards like Teferi's Protection , Unbreakable Formation , Boros Charm to finish the game quicker and keeping the threat presence. But in some situations it would be a better card, especially when Purphoros, God of the Forge is present. So it might come back someday ! and I would like to thank you again for your suggestion of Scapegoat you did a few months ago .

Have you considered Oversold Cemetery for recursion? It's innocuous enough to typically get left alone, its requirement is reliably met here, and most importantly it requires no further mana investment. Think of it as selective card draw.

Did you drop Scapegoat ? I loved its versatility here. Bounces your board for Purph kills or dodges hard to dodge wraths like tuck, exile, etc.
