Dark Ascension Blue Black Zombies

Standard*

dengkai Score: 4


Description

4x grave crawlers and 4 diregraft ghouls for aggro, diregraft captain for pump. Experimenting with grimgrin corspe born for now, but if it doesn't work well, Ill be replacing it with grave titan instead. Grimgrin combos well with gravecrawler as it reanimates on every turn. Tezzeret's Gambit for card advantage as this deck needs a fair amount of creatures on the battlefield and graveyard to support unbreathing horde, zombie apocalypse and negative counters for skindrender. Mikaues the unhallowed used for finisher. However, i need some ideas for artifact removal as Grafdigger's Cage threatens this deck alot plus its a CMC 1, therefore hard to mana leak.

Playtested a few times and it ran beautifully! Your one drop zombies are too good ><. Think about putting in the blue card that bounces a permanent.

What about tragic slip cost one black mana I think its -1/-1 to target creature and morbid- -13/-13 would work with un-tapping grimgrin.

Steel Sabotage and Mental MisstepMTG Card: Mental Misstep are both great ways to defend against Grafdigger's CageMTG Card: Grafdigger's Cage.

I like the infinite loop you can create with grimgrin, Diregraf Captain , Gravecrawler , and Rooftop Storm.

I'd reduce bothUnbreathing HordeMTG Card: Unbreathing Horde and Tragic SlipMTG Card: Tragic Slip number to 2, and add in 2 Tribute to Hunger instead; also, MB those BSZs, you're going to need board positioning with it since almost all zombies are relatively 2/2s. In this deck, I'd rather have DivinationMTG Card: Divination or Forbidden AlchemyMTG Card: Forbidden Alchemy than Tezzeret's GambitMTG Card: Tezzeret's Gambit but that's still up to you. One more thing, Increasing AmbitionMTG Card: Increasing Ambition or Diabolic TutorMTG Card: Diabolic Tutor really helps this kind of deck in searching key cards. With it, you could run just 1x Rooftop StormMTG Card: Rooftop Storm, and Zombie ApocalypseMTG Card: Zombie Apocalypse and add in at least 1 Army of the DamnedMTG Card: Army of the Damned just in case all the creature casting fail.

To hate on Grafdigger's CageMTG Card: Grafdigger's Cage, and Nihil SpellbombMTG Card: Nihil Spellbomb, you could sideboard in DisperseMTG Card: Disperse, Army of the DamnedMTG Card: Army of the Damned, Mental MisstepMTG Card: Mental Misstep, or even DistressMTG Card: Distress. I'm also brewing a zombie deck but more on life losing as a win-con with Geralf's MessengerMTG Card: Geralf's Messenger in it. You could also do that in this deck, lol. :D

@paulage ... looks like some1 is on the rag... now for the deck: i like the idea of zombies and i myself have been trying really hard to get one up and running. Now i am a huge fan of going infinite and i like the combo with with the captain, Grim, an the crawler. my i suggest something like that and instead of the gambit try out forbidden alchemy with maybe 2 havengul lich's to help bringg stuff back but like the deck =P

I personally like this build. What would you say to negging out unbreathing horde and throwing in 3x GhoulraiserMTG Card: Ghoulraiser to keep an infinite chain running with cards grim grin's sac effect or bringing back fallen zombies.
