Wayward Servant Discussion

you should make room to include Viscera Seer.to have on the battlefield Viscera Seer and Gravecrawler allows you to put in play a lot of tokens. it helps you by making scry. this combo allows you to triggers abilities when it goes to the graveyard and/or when you play it (Wayward Servant, Diregraf Colossus.turn 4 you play Diregraf Colossus with Aether Vial and with the untapped lands you can trigger colossus ability 3 or 4 times. in the other hand, having Viscera Seer on the battlefield when you play Tidehollow Sculler you can sacrifice the tidehollow in response to its first ability. this way it triggers the second ability (with no card to return to the oponents hand, then resolves the scry and, at last, look at oponents hand and exile a card that wont come back. the tidehollow in the graveyard can come back later with Relentless Dead.With Viscera Seer you can sacrifice Relentless Dead any time you wish to use its abilities. i play a similar deck:Crowd of Bodies

hope this helps!

I dont understand Wander in Death. You would rather want creatures in the graveyard. Try Chart a Course instead. And you play way too many counterspells. With access to BW you should have the option to remove whatever your opponent plays, rather than counter it. In the ideal world, you have creatures to play early, so you wont hold up mana for counterspells. Try cards like Fatal Push instead. Then put some of the negates and the cancels in the sb.

The mana in this deck is awful. Not playing dual lands, and playing cards like Wayward Servant and Cancel is gonna be horrible. There are solutions that do not require you to go out and invest 50$ in lands, and I'm sure you want to know. The solution, sadly, is to cut some cards. You can choose to cut any of the colors really, but i would cut down on white a little.

Angel of Sanctions is not worth the double white in the cost. Keep one maybe, because it's great to reanimate. Neither Sunscourge Champion or Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun are super important either. What I would do however, is add 4x Unclaimed Territory. That way, you can almost ensure to cast Wayward Servant, by naming "Zombie". If you are missing white mana for Sunscourge Champion or Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun, name "Human". You can even name "Wizard", if you have plenty of black mana, or "God" if desperate. Remember to wait with playing Unclaimed Territory until you have no other lands in hand, or when you need it to hit the curve.

To finish off, this deck idea is very good overall, so have fun playing it! :)

welcome to Magic!

-3 Untethered Express

-1 Liliana, Death's Majesty

-4 Fragmentize

-3 Bone Picker

-4 Wayward Servant

+1 Plague Belcher

+1 Gifted Aetherborn

+4 Dread Wanderer

+4 Binding Mummy

+2 Cast Out or Vraska's Contempt

+3 Dire Fleet Hoarder

Untethered is just bad, especially in a deck that isn't producing 1/1 tokens to crew the artifact.

Liliana, Death's Masjesty is a good card, but she works out better in re-animator style decks.

Fragmentize is a sideboard card. Cast Out / Vraska's Contempt are better all-around cards that can deal with planeswalkers and Scarab God.

Bonepicker is only a Turn 3 play at the earliest for you, as long as you Walk the Plank. Which implies you also have 3 black mana Turn 3.

Wayward Servant is good, but its mana intensive and Binding Mummy works out better for pushing damage.

Plague Belcher, Gifted Aetherborn, and Dread Wanderer are all too good not to run 4 in any black aggro deck. Its important to note that Plague Belcher can stick the negative counters on himself to prevent being blown out by removal.

Dire Fleet Hoarder is the only card recommendation I had slight hesitations about making. You are playing lots of 5 drops, so an early blocker/attacker who translates into an earlier Liliana's Mastery might not be the worst idea.

The best way to upgrade this will be to add black. Unfortunately, the lack of a white zombie lord, Lord of the Accursed Liliana's Mastery for example make the deck lack some beef that zombie decks typically rely on. I would add both of Wayward Servant Unraveling Mummy as well as any of the rare black zombies in standard. If you do this, you can also add some more removal that is black, as well as have things like Duress for the sideboard.

3x Liliana's Mastery 4x Wayward Servant 4x Plague Belcher 3x Lord of the Accursed 3x Sacred Cat 3x Unraveling Mummy 3x Hour of Promise 3x Hour of Glory 4x Unbridled Growth 4x Gravedigger 4x Gift of Paradise 3x Ifnir Deadlands 3x Hashep Oasis 3x Shefet Dunes 3x Evolving Wilds 3x Forest 3x Plains 4x swamps you will notice a lack of green in the mainboard. This will actually help you as when you sideboard you can sideboard things like Heroic Intervention and Blossoming Defense in. I also recommend Cast Out or Ixalan's Binding as well as Duress as good sideboard cards. You can use the cycle deserts if you dont have these ones, but these are much better as they offer something very strong with each sacrifice ability. Also, if you can, use Hour of Promise to get Evolving Wilds since you will further thin your library out. Only do this if you don't need the mana.

Hyperalgialysis on Budget Desert Zombies

You have access to plenty of ways to fix mana with green. Evolving Wilds Hour of Promise Gift of Paradise are all cheap and playable. Depending on your meta, you could even get away with running the tapped lands that come in the deck builders toolkit. The trick for you is that you have a bleed effect with Wayward Servant. You produce a ton of zombie tokens(so many that I would cut all non zombie creatures and use green for pump spells/ramp) so you should be able to win the war of attrition. Essentially make this a black white zombie deck that splashes green for a couple good spells. This will help it stay budget, and give you some options that black and white lack. For example, green hates flying, so if someone has a flier you can sideboard in Crushing Canopy and problem is solved.
