Zombie Infestation Discussion

Why not Zombie Infestation? It's a good madness outlet and turns your useless late-game discard into zombies to boot.

Jokester1393 I do like the zombie part of this deck, but im not going to build around it. They are cannon fodder for the lich.

I like the addition of Gurmag Angler, and the additional discard, my only issue is that (from my own experience) it can be hard to keep enough zombies in play to trigger ranks ... let alone +/- 12 zombies in the deck.
Binding Mummy has potential, but i can see why you removed it, needs more instant speed zombies to really be a "control" card (like Necromancer's Stockpile/Vile Rebirth/Relentless Dead/Zombie Infestation etc) and those cards probably arnt worth it.
do you have plans for a sideboard yet? Stony Silence is solid against tron/affinity/lantern, Surgical Extraction/Extirpate is almost required against some decks (especially if your helping them discard)

oh i meant the card survives a wrath since it isnt a creature while many zombie buffs seem to be stuck on creatures and therefore die, my bad for not being more clear.
hmm so just looking for trample then well id look more at all creatures get trample: Brawn, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Primal Rage. all of which I think are better suited to your deck. craterhoof is a great choice too, i just hate that it only goes off once.
You may have considered most of these but this is what I found for more token generating, also sorry if it is stuff already in your deck i tired to make sure it wasnt: Dread Summons, Empty the Pits, Endless Ranks of the Dead, From Under the Floorboards, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Graf Harvest, Grave Titan, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Necromancer's Stockpile, Nested Ghoul, Noosegraf Mob, Overseer of the Damned, Waste Not, Zombie Infestation

I feel like you need more lands - 33 seems like too few.
I also feel like you need more cards that let you discard many things at once, so you can "turn on" Neheb when you need to. Stuff like Firestorm and Nahiri's Wrath seem pretty absurd. Maybe One with Nothing if you're feeling nihilistic and self-destructive? Zombie Infestation? Grimoire of the Dead? Key to the City? Nihilistic Glee? Give it some thought.
Otherwise, looks real good!

seshiro_of_the_orochi Thanks for the comment!
Thoughts on the Constrictor are covered in the Eldritch Moon update above. I haven't actually made changes to the deck since that post. It has a home, just not 100% sure what I'm cutting quite yet. Probably a land. I just like Zombie Infestation too much!
I don't think I have any real reason to go truly infinite with the current build. None of the finishers I'm running really benefit from it. I guess, in theory, Songs of the Damned is better if I can cast it from my hand more than once if part of my graveyard gets exiled before it just generates an insta-kill. I strongly considered the Four Horseman loop, but decided against it as these games end cleaner and I have to do less... explaining of the final loop.

One thing to consider is that tokens do not go to the graveyard, so creatures like Stitched Drake aren't doing too much for you here. You would have to exile something important, like a Lord, in order to get it onto the field and that won't do you any good.
If you're going to have something like Zombie Infestation, you're going to want to pair it with a spell like From Under the Floorboards so you get the most out of each card. Sure you can discard a Zombie and bring it back later, but that's a lot of effort and mana that you really can't afford as you're trying to get as many creatures on the board as quickly as possible.
I would drop Carrion Feeder. Sure you can sac Zombies to buff it but considering how many Lords you'll have the tokens will be more powerful than what Feeder would be. You're losing out by sacrificing the tokens. I would also drop Army of the Damned, at its CMC makes it difficult to cast and even then you'll have multiple means of generating Zombies. If you up your instant/sorcery total, something like Rise from the Tides is a better option.
Finally, I would drop Dark Ritual. Sure, you can use the mana to get a higher-CMC creature or spell out early, but that spot would be better suited toward something like Compelling Deterrence, which is incredibly good control and a perfect fit for a deck like this. You'll want early-game control, more than just Murder, to protect yourself for the first few turns until you can create a sufficient board presence.
Hope this helps!
