Strata Scythe Discussion

Hello Kafkaesque_, here are some of my suggestions: Add more lands, exactly as lilgiantrobot suggested, 37 - 38 would be better. Gauntlet of Power is just too powerful not to include. In addition you obviously try to go wide with tokens, so the +1/+1 bonus is relevant. Stonehewer Giant can take over the game on its own if remains unanswered in equipment-based deck. I would also add more cards for card draw - just Mind's Eye is not enough. Please consider some of the following: Skullclamp, Loreseeker's Stone, Staff of Nin. Also Strata Scythe and Expedition Map would be great additions.

I too have Godo as well as He uses etb to toolbox what i need and copy token effcts to get extra etb effect to get more stuff. A nasty equipment I would add Prowler's Helm It makes them unblockable less you opponent has a wall.....and lets face who is really going to have a wall? Strata Scythe makes your creature exponentially bigger because you imprint a Mountain and it get +1/+1 per land named mountain in play. It doesn't matter if your opponent has them it makes it all the sweeter.

Nice looking Zombie Deck!! I've got a couple ideas for you on ways you can make it a more powerful multiplayer deck.

My first recommendation is that unless you are playing mostly 1v1 duels I would just cut all the one use discard spells like duress. Spells like that are technically card disadvantage because if there are four players and you use one card to get rid of one card from one player then compared to the rest of the other players you are down a card also. Discard like that is only extremely powerful against one opponent. It can be good, but they don't really control the game in EDH the way they do in other formats. I would then cut the lilianas caress and waste not too. Also I personally don't like corpseweft & necromancer's stockpile (not enough creatures to use for either) or unbreathing horde (no evasion). Those cards in my experience playing zombie tribal were underwhelming.

As far as additions there are some more "Lord" effects like Adaptive Automaton, Ascendant Evincar, and Paragon of Open Graves that you can include. Phyrexian Altar and gravecrawler creates an infinite combo, and if you if you have something like Plague Belcher or Vengeful Dead in play in too, it can kill the whole table on the spot or with diregraf colossus it would make infinite zombies. I love Curse of Shallow Graves and Zombie Apocalypse in my zombie deck, they are great tribal cards. Running so many swamps you could go for Extraplanar Lens (although then I would switch to snow covered swamps) Lashwrithe, Nightmare Lash, and Strata Scythe. Larceny is a great repeatable discard effect. Scourge of Nel Toth is a good beater, it keeps coming back and flies. Buried Alive can even fetch it along with gravecrawler and vengeful pharoah. Or Filth with urborg in play for an unblockable horde.

Here is a link to my zombie tribal deck, maybe it will have more ideas for you. Even though mine has blue in it there may still be things for you to find. Happy gathering!!

@Triton nice suggestions! i really gotta get me a copy of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx! i think Strata Scythe/Sword of the Animist could be future replacements for Hero's Blade/Hedron Matrix... i happen to own a copy of Thassa, God of the Sea.... any recommendations on what i would want to cut/replace with her?

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Rogue's Passage for more ramp, and a means of making Tromo unblockable. Sword of the Animist is equipment and ramp, and Strata Scythe provides a nice boost of power. Thassa, God of the Sea is pretty good in the deck for unblockable. Hope this helps!
