@ryuzaki32667: I would be more than happy to trade. I am interested in your Crumbling Necropolis , as well as your unhinged Swamp s and full art Harmonize . Also, are you still looking for a full art Ponder ?
just testing liliana in here for now.. but rakdos return for 20+ is awesome!
Desecration Demon is a good card, but I'm not sure he fits in this deck considering he doesn't do anything when he resolves. What happens if you play him and then your opponent casts a Supreme Verdict the very next turn? Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch , another 4-drop, fits because she can at least get in for 4 damage before the verdict.
I also think you need some more lands in your deck. If your curve topped out at three then 19 lands might be okay, but with six 4-drops that just seems dangerous - especially with three Hammer of Purphoros . In any case, I'd recommend going 8 Mountain and 9 Swamp if you're going to stay at 19 lands.
I have a similar deck and it's a lot of fun. Also, Seismic Stomp is worth looking at.
Hope this helps your cows crush some people.
Thank you So much Droxium for taking all the time to post your wonderful post.
I do agree that Butcher Ghoul is underwhelming. But he's a cheap zombie and I do enjoy his undying mechanic.
Undead Gladiator I don't enjoy because I'd have to discard to get him back. Gauntlet of Power can backfire if I'm playing another black deck. (That is why I'd consider Nirkana Revenant before Gauntlet.
Sol Ring I'm worried might not be as good as a black mana. (I know that SOUNDS stupid. But my need for true black mana is what makes me think that Sol Ring might not be the best for me. I mean yes I could turn 2 drop a Undead Warchief with 2 Swamp and a Sol Ring . But what if I get Zombie Trailblazer or Phyrexian Obliterator .)
I considered putting a Demonic Tutor in this deck. But decided that having more zombies might be better for a long game. As long as I'm dishing out a horde of zombies. It doesn't matter which ones they are. So for right now I've taken out the tutors, and plan on using card draw like Ancient Craving and Erebos, God of the Dead
I'm going to be completely honest, I'd take out the 2x Orzhov Cluestone , 2x Plains , 3x Swamp , your Crypt Ghast would be better off in Mono-Black deck, and Profit / Loss won't save you as much as it may seem. Riot Control is easily favored over Fatal Fumes , as well. It's a cheaper cost, making it easier to extort and combos nicely with Vizkopa Guildmage . And lastly, I would try to fit in another One Thousand Lashes , too. It's the perfect stall card for a B/W of your playing style. You could probably swap it for Gift of Orzhova .
Just remember that you aren't limited to cards with Orzhova's watermark, either. You'd probably enjoy having cards like Martial Law and Shattered Angel , too. A lot of cards out there would be beautiful additions to the deck, you just have to make them work for you.
