Tattered Mummy Discussion

Ok. First off, you need more lands. You definitely don't have enough. Also, I think you should have a reliable way of getting stuff through. Bontu the Glorified is good, but you need more ways to exploit that, and Tattered Mummy, Weaponcraft Enthusiast, and Doomed Dissenter are definitely things to take out. From Beyond is too slow for a deck like this one. You want it to be more midrange-esque. Certainly Liliana, Death's Majesty needs to be taken out, unless you plan to put in more delirium-based cards, such as Grim Flayer, Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Traverse the Ulvenwald, and Gnarlwood Dryad. Consider Emrakul's Evangel as well. Voldaren Pariah Flip should be a necessity. You need to put Bloodbriar in. I don't know why it isn't already there.

Sorry, no card can be "good" or "bad" in a vacuum. It depends on the cards in which you play it in conjunction with.
But, as a reasonable person, I'm willing to humor you. Tell me why Wanderer is better than Mummy for this deck.
Anyone can say one card is "better" than another when put side by side, but if my wincon doesn't include my opponent losing life every time a creature enters, then no sir, a "ETB tapped" chump blocking Wanderer is not superior to a wincon supporting Mummy for this build.
While you're here, tell me again why I should put more 3 cost spells in here as well? Look at my curve, and tell me, would more 3 cost creatures speed this deck up, especially after you suggest more 1 & 2 drops? No.
If you can't give me reasons why a card will work better, then you don't understand what the deck does.

These are the cards I own right now, so none of them (other than hapatra and the plague belchers) are set in stone. I would like to keep the zombie sub-theme if it were possible though.
The main purpose of the deck is to flood the board with snakes and start dealing damage with the plague belchers early on. I also wanted to take advantage of the plague belcher's ability with zombies, and so I tried to build a small but solid zombie sub-theme.
I haven't got the first clue about deckbuilding or the current meta, so any suggestions are appreciated.
What I've noticed so far is that this deck lacks hardcore removal. I was thinking of at least adding fatal push (which works well with the plague belchers, snakes and overall -1/-1 counter theme). I'm also wondering if I should add more crocodiles for a more aggressive deck, or maybe some nests of scarabs, but the thing is I don't know what to take out in order to add any of these things, or how many of each I should add.
Any sideboard suggestions would be greatly appreaciated. Only thing I know should be there is 4 prowling serpopards for the sideboard (but I wouldn't know what to take out to put them in).
Any other suggestions are welcome as well.
- Replaced Tattered Mummy with Doomed Dissenter (better synergy with -1/-1 counters)
- Replaced Giant Spider with Crocodile of the Crossing (more aggression)
- Removed 1 Cartouche of Strength and 1 Cartouche of Ambition to make room for an extra copy of the aforementioned cards

Catalog9000, It is possible that the card ended up in those packs by mistake, or maybe Wizards decided kind of late that the card was to be exclusive. Either way it is strange.
Tattered Mummy's price has a fallen a bit (to about $1 on tcgplayer), but it still seems overvalued. It has some interesting synergy with Zulaport Cutthroat, which I believe is still legal in standard for now. Could be pretty effective using it with Zulaport, Wayward Servant, and Relentless Dead <--(as Argeaux mentioned). I'm sure there are a few other decent cards in standard that can help you keep digging that back up. I know they reprinted Gravedigger, a personal favorite of mine... also the new art is pretty awesome.
Anyways thank you all for your incite. I think the card is temporarily in short supply and high demand. I predict that the price will drop to about $.25-$.50 in the next few weeks, but only time will tell.

Nice deck. My only suggestion would be to swap the Tattered Mummy for more lords. a couple more Death Barons could make the Gravecrawlers a major annoyance for your opponent and on top of that you end up with more devotion for Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
Just my 2 cents. Either way nice build.

Well, Tattered Mummy is only available in the Liliana planeswalker deck, so that might have something to do with the pricing.
