I wanted to build a zombie tribal deck 2 years ago and this is eventually what it morphed into. I ended up stumbling across Balthor on some random EDH blog and I've never looked back. Balthor is as zombie as it gets: he repeatedly brings your zombies back from the graveyard. The zombies never die, they just keep coming.

This deck is a Vorthos deck, so I'm trying to cut almost all non-zombie cards out of the deck, especially creatures. I have to run some non-zombie non-creatures because the deck just doesn't function otherwise. After increasing the amount of zombie flavor over the years I've found that the deck actually plays better.

One key card in the deck is Noxious Ghoul and it's almost always what I tutor for with buried alive or corpse connoisseur. Every time you use Balthor's ability with Noxious Ghoul in the graveyard you get a free plague wind, which really powers up the deck.

For flavor, there's nothing more on point than Zombie Apocalypse.

I agree, but the function of the card is too close to Balthor's ability. It feels too much like a dead card, no pun intended.
