Relentless Dead Discussion

Balaam__ on Zombies from around the house.

Deck looks nice so far. I’d definitely recommend a full playset of Relentless Dead if it’s an option, although I’m not sure what to remove for the other 2 copies:/

And titanreaver I tried clicking the link to view your zombie deck but nothing came up. Not sure if it’s a glitch on my end or yours. Just thought I’d let u know.

Balaam__ on Undead Army

I’d personally remove Rot Hulk, Dread and Demonlord Belzenlok. Not because they don’t synergize well, but because they’re extremely high cmc cards that have a very low probability of actually hitting the table. Even if you rebuilt this as more of a devotion (Nykthos, Shrine to Nyxx4) deck, it’s still very rare they’d be cast I should think. So better to remove them for a more consistent threat like Relentless Dead or Gravecrawler.

Thank you both Balaam__ and Peoyogon! I believe that these cards will help me out a lot. Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead aren't in there due to budget reasons, but I'll get them the next time I go to my LGS. I do have a question for both of you; What cards should I replace with your suggested cards?

Thanks again!

FounderX on Scarab God Dimir CMDR deck

Hi there, I would replace Aphemia, the Cacophony, you probably never use the exile abilty in a game. Good replacements for the same or less CMC are; Cryptbreaker Gravecrawler Relentless Dead Shepherd of Rot Undead Augur

If the purpose was flying, then Siren of the Silent Song might be a good include, with a bonus discard and mill effect, for The Scarab God to grab.

Balaam__ on Zombie Sacrificie

Relentless Dead is pioneer legal and the recursive abilities are simply too good to pass over. I’d cut at least enough to run 2 copies minimum.

Balaam__ on Zombieneer assault 1.0

Relentless Dead is begging for inclusion here. Being able to retrieve key creatures repeatedly would be a big advantage.

Balaam__ on Fast Zombies Everywhere!

Relentless Dead is begging for inclusion here.
