Atony1400 it seems decent in this deck I think it will replace Vile Rebirth.

Hey, there. You commented on my G/B Modern Zombies deck and asked me to pop by on your deck.

So I think the stark difference between yours and mine is it seems mine miiight be a little more aggro than yours. There are many games where I turn one Gravecrawler, turn 2 Diregraf Ghoul, and then turn 3 swing for 6 deathtouch with Death Baron. With Gravecrawler as your only 1-drop, I feel that you don't move as fast. Correct assessment?

I'm wondering if splashing blue for just two cards, Prized Amalgam and Negate in the side, could be a little stretch? Prized Amalgam is good, but there's plenty of ways to exile. My G/B was originally B/U until I just knew green was the way to go for removal (not just Abrupt Decay and Maelstrom Pulse, but also the good sideboard options for special removal for circumstances.

Because AEther Vial needs creatures to come from your hand, I wonder if Tracker's Instincts would be a worse choice than Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall. Either of those are great card engines, sacrificing which is not an issue, etc.

I've also felt like Lotleth Troll is better as a 3-of...whenever I played him in my deck, I kinda hated it early because discarding good creatures into the GY without a way to bring them back out right away is a tough call. I really do think you should run Diregraf Colossus. I believe EVERY zombie tribal deck should. He just gives you free bodies.

I like Liliana in here...I just don't own any or she would be in my deck as well, lol.

I think Vile Rebirth in your sideboard could be something a little better against control matches like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek. Disfigure could be Dismember instead? Also...against a lot of fog or prison decks, having some Gray Merchant of Asphodel in the SB has won me many seemingly unwinnable games where I couldn't attack.

I also feel like if you're going green, Maelstrom Pulse is a good answer for things. It's Golgari's damn Oblivion better!

Hope this helps you out. I can already see some good U/B options coming out of Eldrich Moon that will also likely help this deck out, too. Exciting stuff!

Also, Joker1430, i put Shamble Back rather than Vile Rebirth because it fits the half/theme better, and gives life.

Nightmare Lash looks like fun to try. So does the Whip of Erebos. Consuming Vapors, Stir the Grave, and Vile Rebirth all look like fun cards to try out.

I have looked at Gravecrawler, and he is one of the cards I would consider adding. Also Vile Rebirth to get some more graveyard movement. I think the whole thing needs to be consolidated more to provide a more consistent play. Gravecrawler would solve the problem I most often have of the deck being slow. Thanks Matt8195

Replace Vile Rebirth with Shamble Back. Think about adding Butcher Ghoul and maybe even Sultai Emissary.

@Nerossus8 I needed a fast way to get creatures into the opponent's graveyard so I could reliably use Vile Rebirth early on. I have Go for the Throat, but I needed a few other options to make it more reliable. My idea for Perplex and Psychic Strike are on top of countering creature spells, they also cause a little bit of milling to hopefully put a few extra creatures in the graveyard. They're also good targets for Zombie Infestation. If there is anything better though, tell me.

You might consider something like Vile Rebirth or Endless Ranks of the Dead to up your zombie count, since you're currentyly running 3 Gravecrawler and 2 Waste Not as your zombie generators, which limits when you can use said Gravecrawler.
