Stromgald Crusader Discussion

I've had a few games where Stromgald Crusader is more useful than a Relentless Dead. You've probably already thought of this but I didn't see anything about it in the comments so I thought I'd throw it out there. +1 from me. zombies are the bestest

Hmmm... how about x2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to ramp into an Army of the Damned? Honestly you could drop 2 swamps and 1 other thing. Also from my experience, Curse of Shallow Graves has been amazing. I run 4 in my old zombie deck and it did some serious work with Attrition on the field. I also run Liliana's Reaver and theres good synergy with Attrition there too (Gravecrawler and Attrition is good too).

As for Stromgald Crusader, he could actually be a good finisher for your deck if you run Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Give him flying and then just jump over your opponent's stuff and hit for a bunch because you've got all that sweet devotion mana.

Noxious Ghoul is a beast too, if you run Endless Ranks of the Dead, he wrecks the board every turn.

Other fun zombie cards... Zombie Apocalypse, Corpse Harvester, Diregraf Colossus, and Zombie Master.

Thanks for the suggestions. There is a lot of Lightning Bolt / Shock in my play group, so I tend to avoid the lower toughness creatures. Anything 1/1 is likely to just get zapped instantly.

This being said, I like options such as Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief, etc. I will probably swap out Abattoir Ghoul for Death Baron, Liliana's Reaver for Undead Warchief, and Ammit Eternal for Lord of the Undead, that way anything I play will boost everything else up.

I'm also considering options like Attrition, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Call to the Grave, for more board presence and control. Considering that I want all these +1/+1 zombies, maybe it would be good if I had more options to get a lot of 2/2 black zombies onto the battlefield. Shepherd of Rot could also be used late game, because by that time I'll have a few +1/+1 zombies out there so he can't be instantly lightning bolted.

I also don't have much use for Stromgald Crusader, (I don't need flying, my way of getting around enemy creatures is menace / fear) but I approved it because I like the way it looks. I'm simple like that.

Necropotence is amazing. You could replace Read the Bones and add it in. Also maybe throw in a copy or two of Lake of the Dead for some ramp. I'd add in some one drop creatures, maybe cut Harsh Scrutiny and a Profane Command for 3x Cryptbreaker. I'd also add in a total of 6 of the following cutting some of your other creatures and a Sol Ring maybe: Miasmic Mummy, Plaguebearer, Relentless Dead, Shepherd of Rot, or Stromgald Crusader. You could add in some lords... Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief are solid. Some other things to consider are Attrition, Curse of Shallow Graves, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Call to the Grave. Hope this helps out!

I've been building a black devotion deck for a while, one card I found as a big hitter is Tombstalker. If you don't have any reanimation, it makes great use of your graveyard, as would Murderous Cut, though have some fetchlands in would help as well. Stromgald Crusader and Relentless Dead are both options with flexibility in terms of their use. Dismember hates on indestructabe things and Slaughter Pact is a nice surprise for your opponents if they think you've tapped out.

Oh man you could absolutly do Orzhov, Boros and Rakdos! Think along the lines of Knight of Infamy, Black Knight, Knight of Dusk, Stromgald Crusader, Ashenmoor Liege, Order of Yawgmoth, Blood Knight, Hanweir Lancer and Hero of Oxid Ridge.

Surprised no Mutavault. Absolute wonders in Zombie decks. If you face a lot of White/Blue Control decks, Stromgald Crusader is amazing in the sideboard.
