Voracious Null Discussion
4 weeks ago
Thank you a lot for the suggestions AdamChafee! I took a look at your deck as well and saw the similarities and differences between ours. You are correct about removing many of the outlier cards I have lingering about in the deck to increase performance, which should be easy with the ones that stand out such as Voracious Null and Whisper, Blood Liturgist. With creatures like Ghoulraiser some of the return spells are not needed so thank you for bringing that to my attention.
I see that your deck is very similar with more control for the early game, which is a good idea for insured safety in the early game. Zombies in my experience I have found to be a quick deck that can come online by about turn 4 in many great situations, so early game control feels like something that I don't necessarily need. I did actually used to have a couple Compelling Deterrence before swapping it for other spells and creatures.
I see that Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is slightly pricey, but not too much for the power it brings to the deck, so if I see it anywhere locally at stores I might just pick it up so thank you for that as well!
I greatly appreciate your feedback and I definitely will take many of your suggestions!

Vanquisher's Banner never mentions the creatures of the appropriate type get counters. It simply has a static ability that boosts power and toughness. Compare the text of Voracious Null and Vanquisher's Banner and you will see one explicitly says counters, while the other doesn't.

If i have Vanquisher's Banner set to buff a creature, for example Bog Rats and i use Everythingamajig A's 1st abillity to move a counter off of Bog Rats and onto something that isnt buffed by Vanquisher's Banner, lets say Voracious Null, do the Bog Rats get the counter from Vanquisher's Banner back to then move to another creature with Everythingamajig A again?

Personally, one of the first things I'd suggest doing is to take out the Revenant Patriarch and Corpulent Corpses. If the goal of the deck is to end the game early, then you should probably be taking out the cards that take a while to get out. Some good cheap cards you can get would be Bone Splinters, Plague Belcher, Diregraf Colossus, Lord of the Accursed, Carrion Feeder, Nantuko Husk, Voracious Null, and Wayward Servant. Some good expensive-ish cards you could get would be Geralf's Messenger, Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and Endless Ranks of the Dead.

I'd replace Festering Goblin or Festering Mummy with Bond Beetle as I find it hard to justify playing cards that give -1/-1 until end of turn on opponent creature unless there's some specific benifit.
Why aren't you playing Bontu the Glorified? He was made for decks like this.
Brindle Boar for some quick lifegain.
And then there's creatures with undying and unearth that are easily brought back for a second sacrifice.
I have a casual deck titled Suicidal Thoughts that focuses on sacrificing. Check it out if you're interested.

The problem with Sweltering Suns is it is likely going to kill your board and having some 1/1's in exchange is not a great deal as most decks well be able to rebuild pretty quickly and zombies (probably the widest target of suns can recur everything from the grave. You also can't rely on having Nest of Scarabs out every time you suns as it is only a four of this means you have about a 39% chance of seeing it in your opening hand, if you played 2 Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons your chances to have a token generator with the -1/-1 counters goes to 54% so the odds are in your favor.
Finally, three colors doesn't have to be slow, if anything three colours is better because it gives you access to more cards that work better with your strategy. I have never had any problem playing 3 or even 4 colors speed wise. To make three colours work you just need to invest in duals like Blooming Marsh, Aether Hub, and maybe even Attune with Aether, when Ixalan comes around the manabase gets even better with the buddy lands. Basically, sorry for coming on strong but I really feel that -1/-1 counters needs green to be worth it. 1/1 deathtouch snakes are a great payoff, 1/1 insects are nice but not a game ender, and green has all the support for -1/-1 counters (you even get Stinging Shot in the side).

My advice: More lands. Lol. But in all honesty here is my advice
The new Torment of Hailfire would be pretty nice as well.
Also remember Living Death is an incredibly powerful card. Especially in this kind of deck.
If you need anymore advice you know where to find me.

I would suggest less creatures. Creatures are good, but there is a thing as too much. Cards like the new Liliana and old one are good. Anointed Procession, In Oketra's Name, Time to Reflect, Never, Wander in Death, Supernatural Stamina, Stir the Sands, Plague Belcher, Liliana's Mastery, and Gravedigger are all cards from Ahmonkhet that could do nicely in a zombie deck. Innistrad, of course, has a lot of good zombies but those are black and blue. If you want to keep this deck to a minimal price, I would suggest something along the lines of...4xWayward Servant 2xLord of the Accursed 4xFan Bearer 3xBinding Mummy 3xVoracious Null 4xDoomed Dissenter 4xIn Oketra's Name 4xTime to Reflect 4xWander in Death 2xStir the Sands 4xSupernatural Stamina 12xSwamp 10xIsland or something along those lines.This deck using just Ahmonkhet cards. And if I am correct, this (main)deck, minus land, should only be about $12-14 on CardKingdom.
