ExpletoryOrb on what am i doing

alright so here goes, so the cards to the left can be swapped with the ones to the right, it has the same or very similair effect but for a reduced mana cost etc.

Throttle -> Grasp of Darkness

Bloodtallow Candle -> Dismember

Whispers of Emrakul -> Hymn to Tourach

Painful Lesson -> Night's Whisper (there is also: Sign in Blood

Lethal Sting -> Victim of Night (there is also Go for the Throat)

Dutiful Return -> Ghoulcaller's Chant ? (its cheaper and will almost always be for a zombie? a lot cheeper but its your call.)

Abyssal Specter -> Hypnotic Specter

the next ones are cards i think you should strip, i will list them and then explain why:

Ruin Rat : you already have a few of these, and this isnt even a zombie. there are just better cards out there that arent expensive at all, (i'll give some suggestions further down the post)

Shambling Attendants : Just strictly bad, you dont want to play a 3/5 dude for 8 mana ever.

Cruel Feeding : its just pretty bad, the strive cost is very expensive just to +1/0 lifelink. dont use this unless you had something specific in mind that i didnt catch up on reading the list.

Duress and Divest : these never really do much, yes you get to pick away 1 card and see 1 hand but you will almost never hit anything especially good, only run this if you are planning to do a lot of 1v1 EDH.

Here are some suggestions of cards that are very cheap and are pretty good:

Empty the Pits

Zombie Apocalypse


Zombie Master

Nice Pauper deck :D

Have you thought about these card..

Dusk Legion Zealot = life the draw a card for a 1/1 body for 2 is pretty neat ;)

Gurmag Angler = a 5/5 which can delve away used cards in the graveyard to become cheaper to cast :)

there is other cards also that use the delve mechanic in the common slot which is..

Sultai Scavenger = 3/3 creature with flying and delve

Shambling Attendants = 3/5 creature with Deathtouch and Delve

Then we have..

Victim of Night = Destroy almost anything for 2 black mana even artifact/Black creature :3

I realize it's probably too cute to work, but here's the general idea. Get a Tasigur, Gurmag, Shambling Attendants or Sibsig Muckdraggers into play asap! have a bit of a toolbox like: Iona, Shield of Emeria Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Moldgraf Monstrosity Reya Dawnbringer Blazing Archon Prince of Thralls Platinum Emperion Worldspine Wurm Woodfall Primus Bogardan Hellkite Magister Sphinx... You get the idea. + counterspells and stuff.

Don't see a double post on mine, you're good!

-- Don't think you need 4 Hissing Quagmire to make best use of Sylvan Advocate, it's just a strong, strong card on its own. If you find yourself needing more G/B lands you might as well go up on it, but there's no need to push it. A 2 mana 4/5 with vigilance is good enough without the 4/4 deathtouch land. By the time you can start affording to activate Quagmire and attack with it (lategame) chances are you'll have run into one already. At least that's how it's going with the Jund build I play!

--Yeah, they're not in the system yet even though Mindbender was spoiled forever ago. Not sure why... I use Shambling Attendants as a placeholder for Mindbender because it's the same mana cost & Delve is like Emerge.

--You can totally escalate. You can't play alternate casting costs with Dark-Dwellers, like Surge or Emerge, but you can always play additional casting costs-- even have to, if it's something like Lightning Axe. I love Collective Defiance + Goblin Dark-Dwellers.

Just thought of some other awesome options. Dead Drop, Tombstalker, Gurmag Angler, Murderous Cut, Necropolis Fiend, Shambling Attendants, Sibsig Muckdraggers, and Sultai Scavenger could all be possible main deck options. Faultgrinder and Ingot Chewer for the sideboard. Some of these may be decent options for what you're going for of course you would have to balance the delve aspect. I think you ahould remove Tasigur, the Golden Fang because you can't activate his ability 9based on your current mana base) and you can't play both since he is a Legend.
