Exile target creature card from a graveyard. Put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.
Over all, Its a really awesome deck. And about the only card I think you should switch out is Black Cat . At the same time, I dont know what would make worthwhile replacement? So, maybe keep it there until the next set? +1
and caution if you choose the Rakdos Guildgate ... (next set, "god's, has the Scry rakdos temples in it i think) but caution with gates... MAX. x2... they r tapped when they enter..
nice start for the minotaur's though... i was wondering if the could work...
All others- no
Gravecrawler you are using an ability that allows you to cast it so you are casting a spell of the chosen type. Rise from the Grave a sorcery spell with no creature types is putting the creature into play. Same goes for Vile Rebirth except that its an instant with no creature types. All the other things are abilities putting a creature of that type in so its not you casting it.
So as Door of Destinies states: 'whenever you cast a spell of the chosen type'. But are there ways around this?
I have a zombie deck and a rat deck implementing this card.
zombies:can I get a token on the door when...casting Gravecrawler from the graveyard?Butcher Ghoul or Geralf's Messenger undying ability goes off?Undying Evil is played on any card of the chosen type?Liliana's Reaver , Grave Titan or Vile Rebirth ability to put a zombie token on the field?Rise from the Grave is played?
i like the idea of a zombie swarm deck. idk about Endless Ranks of the Dead being too slow. If you're building you deck with the soul purpose of having a swarm out early, then the ranks could help immensly. In a typical zombie take over deck i'd say yeah, don't bother unless it's a slow paced casual deck. but for this, it could work. I would however splash green for Parallel Lives . Then stuff like Moan of the Unhallowed , Vile Rebirth , and playing a Grave Titan will be bonkers. Looking forward to seeing this deck come together. +1
But in an aggro deck, Vile Rebirth might have a spot in the SB, if you know you're up against another creature heavy deck.
