Unholy Grotto Discussion

ClockworkSwordfish on The Scarab God Squad

The Scarab God and Lich Lord of Unx go together like peanut butter and jelly: he's basically a miniature version of the God. I also strongly recommend Corpse Harvester, who can repeatedly tutor for whatever zombies you want. Since you have some milling effects in play, you might also like Undead Alchemist - who, as it happens, also combos excellently with the Lich Lord. Unholy Grotto is also excellent as a cheap and hard-to-remove way to recycle your most useful creatures.

You might like Life's Finale as a sort of tutoring effect with the Scarab God. Not only is it a board wipe, which are much easier for zombies to come back from than most creatures, but it lets you pick up to three creatures that you can later reanimate with the Scarab God. It's like catalog shopping.

with 3.59 avg cmc it's too slow try to cut some of your big finisher to add more cycle and cheap minion. this deck really shine for its destructive snowboal kit if you are ahead with this deck it become REALLY disgusting

also you missed some really good zombie Lord of the Accursed, Gisa and Geralf, Zombie Master+Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is really sad for your opponent Noxious Ghoul, Prized Amalgam, Unbreathing Horde

land : where is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers also I'm not a big fan of Ghost Quarter, Arcane Lighthouse also Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Cavern of Souls Ik it cost 100$ but it's soooo good Unholy Grotto could also be good

planeswalker: liliana, death's majesty is all you need

artifact: Lightning Greaves. Worn Powerstone is a meme Expedition Map is usefull to get urbog, crypt or coffer Skullclamp we all know why it's good... why play Konda's Banner when Vanquisher's Banner exist Ashnod's Altar give lots of mana and you can respond to removal by sacrificing. Door of Destinies oh boy

instant: Tragic Slip, Soul Manipulation, Dispel, Disallow (oppinion: I personaly belive that having conterspell in this deck is good to protec yourselve from board wipe or graveyard hate)

sorcery: Living Death for pure chaos Ghoulcaller's Chant, Call to the Grave

just try to lower the average cmc of the deck and it is really good but the problem of zombie in general is graveward hate so try to adapt if they have too much graveward hate try to play less with the graveyard

@Rikente, I wouldn't concern myself with adding zombies. My deck only runs Wayward Servant and Gravecrawler and everything works just fine. Wayward Servant's ability is too weak to be used for anything other than an infinite combo. Gravecrawler I wouldn't mess around with unless you're bent on abusing him with Skullclamp or Grave Pact.

If you must add more zombies for value I'd suggest Taurean Mauler, Fleshbag Marauder, Liliana's Elite, Scourge of Nel Toth, and Mirror Entity since those cards are good regardless of if they're in a zombie deck or not. If you want an easy way to recur your Wayward Servant then I suggest adding Volrath's Stronghold or Unholy Grotto as a budget alternative.

I like the Vanquisher's Banner. Seems like a really strong addition to any tribal deck and I'll have to look into getting a playset or more.. I'll also have to pick up a copy of Unholy Grotto, because why not? I do have a copy of both Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact, but I'm running them in a Ghave saproling deck where I feel like they will get more mileage. I'll probably pass on the cost reduction spells as well. They're good, but I'm not really into them. Looking at Liliana, Death's Majesty and Liliana's Mastery; I have both of these cards, but I was hesitant on what to opt out when I did get a hold of them. I'll probably swap out Rite of Replication and Cackling Counterpart.

Call to the Grave, Grave Pact, Liliana's Mastery, and Dictate of Erebos are all excellent enchantments for Zombies.

Door of Destinies is really strong in any tribal deck. Vanquisher's Banner gives you another anthem affect along with an excellent draw engine. Bontu's Monument, Herald's Horn, and Urza's Incubator all make Zombies easier to cast, and the first two offer good secondary affects as well.

Unholy Grotto is a staple of Zombies.

Liliana, Death's Majesty is pretty good and relatively cheap.

Hooray! I have my own zombie list, but it's a bit of a different angle as my commander is Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. A couple things I might add would be Gempalm Polluter and Unholy Grotto. Also, Liliana, Death's Majesty has the potential to be a one-sided board wipe if she ults. Even if not, her other abilities are relevant.

Unholy Grotto Is an amazing card to add to any zombie tribal deck. It's $5 and is worth every penny for a zombie deck.
