Zombo Combo




Enchantment (1)


This is my Standard take on Soul Sisters. Take advantage of Anointed Procession to churn out tons of tokens to drain with Wayward Servant and / or Plague Belcher. Some of our token generators aren't the best mana investment before you get your Procession down, but our creatures are loaded with value. Low mana creatures like Relentless Dead, and Plague Belcher are great at any stage in the game. Diregraf Colossus gets very beefy in a grindier match, and combos for insane card draw with Cryptbreaker.

It's surprisingly effective! Get out there and eat some brains!


Our most important only 1 drop, Cryptbreaker is a Swiss Army knife that I'm always happy to topdeck. If we need a body but have a fist full of lands he lets us discard for a zombie. If we have a boardstall with a bunch of tokens, tap 'em down and lose a life to dig for gas. Cryptbreaker. Love ya, bud.

Dread Wanderer

Initially I underestimated Dread Wanderer. I have seen the error of my ways. The ETB tapped drawback is a shame, but the ability to unleash the hounds from your graveyard while Heckbent would make the Baha Men proud.

Relentless Dead

That's a lot of words for . Evasive, recursive, and a nifty reanimator, Relentless Dead is a house. isn't always available turn 2 so I've cut this back to 2 copies.

Wayward Servant

The heart of the deck. Wayward Servant supplies us with drain triggers for the plentiful piles of zombie tokens we'll be slamming on the board. In multiples the game should be over shortly even if you can't get through chump blockers. Siding in Dusk / Dawn in matches where they just won't let your zombies do anything can provide big swings out of nowhere if it resolves.

Diregraf Colossus

I like this guy a lot. At first glance I bet you're thinking Diregraf Colossus is a nonbo with tokens. The truth is his job in our deck isn't to be huge-large (although it is not uncommon for him to achieve huge-largeness), it's to make more zombies. We have 23 other zombies that trigger tokens on cast, giving us stupid value off of Cryptbreakers and Dread Wanderer.

Lord of the Accursed

A new zombie lord! Lord of the Accursed pumps up our already formidable 2/2s for a cool . You might not find yourself using his activated ability too often, but it can win games. Tends to be a removal magnet.

Plague Belcher

Big boy. Plague Belcher is a Beast in more ways than one. He kills one of our zombies when we cast him, triggering the first of hopefully many drains. If Diregraf Colossus is already in play we trigger his ability, providing a convenient target for our -1/-1 counters and a drain to boot.

Oh yeah, and he's a 5/4 with menace for .


Anointed Procession

Half of the reason we're playing white. Event if we didn't get amazing Wayward Servant drains from all the tokens we're making, the mobs of the dead can overtake the field with a single spell. 2 zomz from Gisa's Bidding might not seem like a stellar deal for , but 4 zomz is more like it. I don't like to play this on turn 4 most of the time, I'd rather wait until I have a way to get value from it right away. I usually like to cast it after liliana, death's majesty to get double the dudes from her +1.

Liliana's Mastery

Liliana's Mastery is tailor fit for our game-plan. Without Anointed Procession we get 4 power and toughness on the board. With it we get 8. When combined with our pal Lord of the Accursed the scoops are delightfully salty. It takes a lot for a 5 mana enchantment to be worth dropping on an empty board, but I think this gets there.

Dark Salvation

The zombie synergy is getting good now. Dark Salvation can kill most things in the format if you're not getting your dick kicked in, and for as little as . Later in the game we can drop 2-4 zombos, and I hope you're not tired of hearing about it because I'm not done talking about how dope Anointed Procession is, with this and everything else.

Gisa's Bidding

Admittedly not very flashy, Gisa's Bidding naturally unearths 2 dudes, but ideally nets 4. Can be cute with Cryptbreaker's discard ability to madness cheese one 1 more zombie for 1 more mana.

Never / Return

Aftermath has been poo-poo'd pretty hard by the community, trust me when I say this one's perfect for us. Deals with those pesky Gideons and Saheelis, and exiles Scrapheap Scrounger in exchange for 1-2 fresh deadites. A bit steeply priced, but I would include this card for the Never half anyways.

Liliana, Death's Majesty

Oh Lily, I couldn't have asked for a better 'walker to compliment our army of the dead. Makes 1-2 zombies per turn while filling our yard with meat with her +1. Reanimates for a reasonable -3, and a one sided wrath for her ult. Dirty, Lily. Dirty.

I don't have a lot to say about the mana base. Concealed Courtyard is a no brainer. Shambling Vent can help us stall in some situations. Westvale Abbey  Flip is a one of since 5 creatures aren't hard to come by and the Profane Prince will fuck your day up.
With the meta in flux over Cat-Combo getting neutered, our sideboard is going to be pretty dependant on what happens in the next couple of weeks. I chose some different / extra removal for the time being.
So that's my Zombo Combo. I realize it's not a combo deck by the strictest definition. Please respect my right to call my deck whatever I damn well please. Critiques encouraged.
