Badaboo on Gisa and Geralf zombies edh

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.

While not a Zombie, Necromaster Dragon is a fun card that flies, spits up Zombies, and mills the opponent.

Undead Alchemist is on theme with Geralf.

And you need the Avatar of Zombies, Soulless One.

...then there's The Scarab God...

Taking out Soulless One and replacing with Lashwrithe

Thanks, Saljen. I'll take out the Dark Salvation and Soulless One and work on figuring out some better options.

Maybe I'll try to pick up some more Undead Warchief and Gravecrawler to make up the difference. (Lord of the Undead is pricy!) Is there any sorcery that you would recommend in a deck like this?

What's better, a single 6/6 zombie + 5 2/2 zombies, or 6 5/5 zombies? Soulless One and other cards like that aren't bad on their own, but there are better cards that play better and provide more immediate pressure on the opponent. Dark Salvation is extremely expensive. You'll never ever be able to cast that for a meaningful number.

Also, Scourge of Nel Toth was more intended to be cast from either the graveyard or with Liliana, Death's Majesty rather than direct from its CMC.

For Soulless One, do you think the CMC is too high for it to be beneficial in an aggro deck? I figured since it's power/toughness grows with each zombie in play and in graveyards, it's great for a deck with tokens, Liliana, etc.

Zombies are the best! They just got a lot of new tools in one of the most recent sets as well.

Let me start by saying that your deck looks like it's lacking direction a bit. You've got some Zombie aggro in there mixed with lots of lands and lots of high cost or X cost spells. Those are two conflicting strategies. I'd suggest honing in on the Zombie aggro if you want to stick with the Zombie theme.

I'd recommend dropping the following cards: Diregraf Ghoul (there are better 1CMC Zombies), Scourge of Nel Toth (very expensive for an aggro deck), Soulless One and Unbreathing Horde (these just aren't very powerful), as well as all of your X spells, Torment of Hailfire, Dread Summons, and Dark Salvation as they are just too expensive to play and actually be useful. Contamination isn't actually legal in Modern, so I'd suggest dropping that as well.

Here's some cards that I'd consider to replace the ones that I suggested you remove: Gravecrawler and Cryptbreaker are the best 1CMC Zombies. Definitely consider these if going aggro. Cemetery Reaper and Lord of the Undead offer more ways to pump up your Zombie horde, as well as additional functionality. Grey Merchant of Asphodel offer unique late game options to finish off the opponent. You could also consider upping the number of Undead Warchief and/or Lord of the Accursed. Aether Vial would also be a solid way to speed up the deck.

Hopefully this isn't too much critique for one deck, but you mentioned you were new so I thought I'd throw out some advice. I have a Zombie EDH deck that I put a lot of time into, so I've got some experience with the undead. Good luck with your new deck!
