Undead Warchief Discussion

dracoarmy on Liliana and Friends

With only 7 zombies in the deck and very few ways to make them, I would remove Undead Warchief, Soulless One, Lord of the Accursed, Gravecrawler only 7 zombies hard to bring back, Oath of Liliana,Relentless Dead (maby)

Id add Vile Requiem in place of Oath of Liliana. Its a good removal.

Or you can just add more zombies. to make the cards worth it.

Maby add Zombie Master, Unbreathing Horde if one thing in play gives it +0 +1, it can never die from combat. Risen Executioner, Cemetery Reaper, Butcher Ghoul

A Gempalm Polluter can be great at any game stage.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Undead Warchief would also fit in well.

Legendorum on Gisa and Geralf - Only Innistrad Blocks

2 weeks ago

Thanks for the write up Maxon!

The issue I have with a pure Zombie deck (sticking with Innistrad blocks) is just I'm worried about the power level. This current deck is hardly 'very' competative at the moment. I'm worried if I start adding sub-par creatures in, just because they are Zombies, it will generally weaken the deck.

Of course Innistrad has some amazing Zombies - but a lot of others are virtually Vanilla creatures too, and without cards like Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief, Noxious Ghoul and the like (just other Zombie staples) - I'm not sure how well the deck will run. Especially with the mill aspect - by packing the deck in with (some) sub-par Zombies, and having less spells, AND milling myself; the frequency I would draw what I actually need at a time sounds kind of slim. Especially as my only form of non-creature recursion is Possessed Skaab (who's really only good if you can continually flicker him too.. which you can't do with Zombies!). How much removal would I run? Do I forget about lifegain entirely? What about card draw? Obviously Gisa and Geralf 'draw' you an extra card per turn, but is that enough?

In short, I'm worried that with a whole bunch of just Innistrad zombies, the deck would be worse off, simply because so many of them are just 'simple' pretty low P/T creatures.

As an example, Prized Amalgam is a LOVELY card, that i've tried to find room for! But.. it's only a 3/3 that comes back - If I sac it to Ghoulcaller Gisa well, I have 3 zombies. that is nice every turn. But then if I mill Gisa, I can't get her back without Havengul Lich. And that's only one combo. I could give Grimgrin a counter every turn, ooor?.. it just doesn't seem powerful enough, no matter how much I love the card.

Having said all that, I REALLY appreciate your input. And I am actually gonna put together a pure Zombie list like you've recommended for my next few games, just to try it out. Maybe my worries will turn out completely wrong and I'll love it!

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 :)
