I'd prefer something that isn't rotating out, but a good thought. For standard legal stuff right now I think Beckon Apparition and Vile Rebirth are great options.

Thanks for the tips! shadow63 I agree I should get tokens or something to sac with hour of need, although at the moment I push the board with a bunch of little creatures that I sac anyways.

skeletonlegion, Master of Waves is definitely a possibility, but at 4 mana and without good devotion for him in the deck, I'm not sure if it is worth it. Definitely with a right tweek I could see two being used maindeck. As far as the other suggestions, I don't think that Runner's Bane and Agoraphobia go with the way I want this deck to play. Remember this is supposed to be similar to mono-black aggro, but with access to Hour of Need to overwhelm to finish the game. lastly, Vile Rebirth plays well in this strategy, but the fact that it could be a potentially dead card makes me not want to play it.

Thanks so much for the suggestions, I'll be looking around for the sac outlets!

yes if your plan is just use your creatures and turn them into 4/4 tokens using Hour of Need , then you will want to get rid of the real expensive creatures that will just take up mana. You can use this mana to use control spells such as Runner's Bane and Agoraphobia . Use other token spawns such asMaster of Waves and Vile Rebirth to give you more creatures, which you can use to sacrifice into the 4/4 flyers. hope this helps!

Cool strategy, +1! Maybe Path to Exile and Vile Rebirth can be an alternative. Think about some counters too

Dredge in PDH is a valiant effort, indeed. I think you'd be better off with Nyx Weaver from Journey Into Nyx as your commander, though. Free milling on a 2/3 with Reach and the ability to reclaim a card seems like a direct upgrade.

I also think a few of your card choices seem a bit weird. The following in particular seem a tad underwhelming or like you searched for the word "graveyard" and included them just because:

Arachnus Web , Dead Weight , Stab Wound , Asphyxiate , Aerial Predation - This is a sad removal suite if you're boasting black. Consider direct upgrades in the form of Doom Blade , Terror , Diabolic Edict , Pestilence , Crypt Rats , or Evincar's Justice

Wildwood Rebirth - Grim Harvest says, "Hi."

Vile Rebirth , Cremate - Why the graveyard hate? I'd find some room in your deck for a bit of land ramp. Yavimaya Elder , Kodama's Reach , etc.

Baleful Eidolon - I think you lack threats in this deck, not kill potential. While I think Deathtouch is quite potent against voltron-style decks, a lot of them will be in a hurry to give their commander evasion.

Just my two cents. I think board wipes like Evincar's, Crypt Rats, and Pestilence are perfect for your deck. Crush the board, then invite your creatures back onto the field for another go-around.

Best of luck!

Love it :)

Maybe add a Vile Rebirth ? I really like it. You target the other players graveyard, during their turn and after only the attackers have been declared. It's a surprise ambush zombie and for only 1 mana : )

Maybe 1 exta Korlash, Heir to Blackblade ? With one Korlash in play your Lord of the Undead can keep return the other one from your graveyard to your hand, each turn you can discard it again. 2 mana for 2 Swamps.

It would be good to have something for card drawing. Maybe consider Blood Scrivener or Graveborn Muse ?

Some general advice: Always try to get some information out of the games you play. Watch your mana balance, you will soon notice, what you're lacking of. Watch your mana curve, try to get the right mix of cheap, mid-cost and expensive creatures, so you have possibilities in every part of the game.

Think of your goals. Basically, there are two types of decks: The first is quick and deadly and kills your opponent fast enough to prevent him from reacting. The second type controls your opponent, keeps him low until you have the spells you need to win. What type is your deck going to be?

Always stick to your goals, but don't be a slave to your theme. If something doesn't work out, don't hesitate to break your theme a little.

The problem with your little lifelink guys is, that they are too weak and can be blocked easily, so they won't get you the life you need. Mind Rot and Vile Rebirth is nice but uneffective when you play so few of them. Drop Cremate for more of them and more discard, that will also help you to make your Avatar cheaper. I'd also drop Honor of the Pure for you have only five creatures that would interact with it and even then the would only be 2/2.

I'd definitely go more for a classic black discard/destruction deck, because most of your funny spells in this deck are black. Then you can also play Sorin and Nighthowler.

You're off to a good start here. Since this is legacy, you might want to consider adding Oversold Cemetery , and Infernal Caretaker .

I would lose the Raise Dead and swap it with Unearth , since that will put them on the battlefield rather than just in your hand.

Wight of Precinct Six is best used in a mill deck. I'd swap some out for some Gravecrawler , Black Cat , or Highborn Ghoul , and then maybe add Soulless One for a later-game big guy.

Cemetery reaper is great, but you should consider swapping one or two for Lord of the Undead . Undead Warchief is also awesome.

I am always tempted to run Door of Destinies, but by the time I have the four mana to plop it down, it just takes too much mana to justify its use in most of the games I have played with it. I try to focus on lower-cost creatures that will buff up my zombies earlier on, and getting them back into play with a cheap spell like Unearth if they die. But Door of Destinies would probably work really well if you happened to draw it and a Dark Ritual by turn 3.

You would do well to swap the Diabolic Tutor with Beseech the Queen .

Also take a look at Curse of Shallow Graves , Unholy Grotto , Buried Alive , Reanimate , Quest for the Gravelord , Vile Rebirth , Grave Pact , Call to the Grave , Fleshbag Marauder , and Innocent Blood .

A great combo is Grave Pact , Innocent Blood , Fleshbag Marauder , and Unearth . Play Innocent Blood while grave pact is down, and your opponents sacrifice two creatures. Play the Fleshbag and have him sacrifice himself, and they sacrifice 2 more. Unearth him, and they sacrifice 2 more. Repeat as needed.

And make sure you save your Go for the Throat for flyers, because your zombies can't fly. Price
