I think you have way overcosted this card - Permeating Mass is a 1/3 with the same ability, and only costs . All told, it's a fun, but not particularly powerful, ability.

I'm not entirely sold on Black having such a transformation effect, but I think the argument is there. I might make change this creature's P/T to 2/2, so it matches the traditional zombie token. Then make it cost (That's the same cost as Walking Corpse , and this is, effectively, a vanilla zombie with a slight upside--same cost, but at rare seems perfectly legitimate). If you wanted it to be a bit harder to cast, you could probably go as high as , but I don't think you need to push much beyond that.

I'm also not sure where you got the idea that damage carried over to the copy--damage marked on a creature is not a copiable value.

I don't apear to have Lightning Bolt , is Shock and Lightning Strike decent replacements? For Act of Treason , should I replace it with Volley Veteran ?

I will replace 2 of the 4 Expedite cards with Trumpet Blast . The other 2 Act of Treasons, I might keep. I kind of like them in the deck.

Walking Corpse could be donned by the Shocks, and the Lightning Strikes can replace Corpseweft , Abnormal Endurance and a Dread Wanderer .

I will try and get some of those cards you recommended, like Goblin Bomb or Goblin Bushwhacker.

Thanks again Caerwyn

Fearfactor, it is your deck and you are certainly free to do with it as you please, but I am not following your reasoning. Why not both? Turn 1, Diregraf Ghoul, turn two Graveyard Marshal or Walking Corpse and swing for 2. It puts you way ahead on turn 3 when you play your Death Baron as well (Now you have two 3/3 death touchers or a 3/3 and a 4/3 death toucher). The only downside to the ghoul over the Walking Corpse is that it does not block its first turn (which you don't look to do anyway in an aggressive deck). If your trying to get more into midrange then I see your point (although I would still go with the ghoul over the walking corpse for the open mana), but in an aggro deck I think you would really like your results with an aggressive one drop. Anyway, I'll get off my soap box now. Feel free to try it or to ignore me, and have fun!

David_H18 Definitely gonna see what my LGS has for Graveyard Marshal but I'm not really a fan of Diregraf Ghoul for me it does nothing until turn 2 in which I can play a Walking Corpse or Graveyard Marshal (thanks for this! I have no idea how I missed this card). Probably just me, but thats my reasoning.

hey fearfactor! I would definitely go for Graveyard Marshal over Walking Corpse. Better body and gives you a mana sync. Cool deck!

Legendary_Shadow... possibly, however I like the synergy with Walking Corpse and Death Baron

What about Burglar Rat instead of Walking Corpse?

Two things right off the bat:

  • You need to run more lands, 32 is way too few even for a mono-color deck. Bump it up to at least 36, personally I would run closer to 38.

  • You're running some creatures that just aren't that great in EDH, namely: Diregraf Ghoul, Highborn Ghoul, Order of Yawgmoth, Shambling Ghoul, and Walking Corpse. While cheap, they're mostly vanilla, low-power creatures which won't get you very far.

As far as upgrades go, some great cards that I didn't see on your list are: Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, Lord of the Accursed, Plague Belcher, and Shepherd of Rot. These cards have more relevant abilities and are Zombie tribal staples.

Something else to consider is running the mono-black mana package since you are able. While not really a budget option, all mono-black decks can substantially benefit from its inclusion.
