Undead Warchief Discussion

Hello! Just several suggestions. Your deck definitely needs at least a couple of Zombie lords: Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief or even Death Baron himself. Then I'd recommend to try Conspiracy - let's turn all your creatures including Ghoulcaller Gisa into Zombies! In this case Endless Ranks of the Dead is also preferable.

GarthMaul I like +1/+1 and deathtouch Death Baron or 2 mana return Lord of the Undead, more than Undead Warchief. Thank you for your comment! :) I will add him to Side :)

Undead Warchief would be good in this.

i have a really rather good zombie edh deck if you need ideas. But here are few of my rock star cards. Gravecrawler Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Buried Alive Lim-Dul's Vault Undead WarchiefDiregraf Captain Phyrexian Altar The altar plus gravecrawler and a sacrifice outlet equals infinite recursion, which is an infinite kill combo with several things.

Thanks for the comment.
I put Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in the deck just for the devotion aspect in late game. I honestly hadn't thought about nixing it and Crypt of Agadeem, but looking at it in that perspective, I could definitely switch them for some more basics.

The main reason I had Sorin, Solemn Visitor was for the Lifelink. Plus if I already had +2/+1 on everything from Undead Warchief I could potentially gain a bunch of life. Not to mention I could make some flyers from him also.

I could cut Appetite for Brains, my reason for it was to be able to see the opponents hand. But with Inquisition of Kozilek I could cut it and replace with some creatures. Maybe a Death Baron or Lord of the Undead?

I love the Diregraf Colossus, I can't believe I didn't think about putting him in this.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

The first thing I noticed is that you have no Lord effects to boost your Zombies. Having a lot of them is great. Having them as 5/5 or 6/5 with Deathtouch that deal damage when they die is even better. Things like Undead Warchief, Diregraf Captain, Death Baron, and Cemetery Reaper are really good for this kind of deck. Consider dropping higher-CMC creatures like Overseer of the Damned and Maalfeld Twins, which will take far too long to get on the board for your own good, for more Lord effects to allow your tokens to have more survivability. Also consider splashing Blue for Diregraf Captain. They're too good to pass up and pose a threat to your enemies should they kill off your tokens.

Grave Titan is also a good token generator and a potential win-con.

I also notice that you have no means of defending your creatures. Your entire deck is simply generating Zombie tokens, and most of your deck is over CMC 4. You're going to find that your deck will be destroyed simply because you have very little of an early-game presence and even less of a means to protect your board. Even if you don't splash Blue for counter spells and other forms of control, you should still drop some of your token-generating instants/sorceries for things like Despise and Fatal Push.

I have a similar Zombie token deck that uses Blue for control. Consider taking a look at it and see if anything in it proves to be useful to you. Here is the deck: B/U Zombie Tokens

Hope this helps!
