Combines two beloved archetypes - zombies and dredge. Fun to play, and you sometimes even win. Other times, you will see all your best non-creature spells dumped into your graveyard where you can't get them back.

Strategy is to get a dredge card into your graveyard by turn 4 or 5, then dredge to get it back. Use Mulch to load your hand with some land cards, then play them or use Raven's Crime to force discards. Shambling Shell is your do-it-all guy, he can sacrifice himself into a graveyard, pump another creature, then bring himself back with dredge. Or you can use Ghoulcaller's Chant to bring him back with a friend as well.

Innocent Blood is your removal of choice, because you actually want to sac one of your own creatures in many cases.
