Going to try out Key to the City for added zombie aggro beats on Friday. I don't know that I run more than 1.

Also, Collective Brutality is nice for the "discard" and madness combos, but you may find you enjoy Sinister Concoction more for removal. It's super cheap too.

id like to choose which card im discarding. Imagine milling liliana, wharf and any other spell.:P. Thats the reason why i dont use gisa and geralf or any cards that has a milling ability. I do mill with liliana but only in emergancy.

I like what you've got going here ... I've borrowed a couple ideas to make my zombies better, so +1 from me =)
I've noticed the times I've played Dark Salvation that I'm dropping 7 mana just to get three zombie tokens which has been a bit frustrating. From Under the Floorboards gets you the same number of zombies for only 5 mana (5 zombies using the madness costs for the same price as Dark Salvation). The -x/-x would be better if you could, again, spend more mana ... but Grasp does a much better job of getting rid of creatures IMO (which you already have in this deck). Gisa's Bidding is another option for zombie tokens.
How has Dark Salvation worked for you so far?
October 16, 2016 11:12 a.m.
Thank you Obial for the upvote and for the comment.:)
Well, Dark Salvation worked fine for me so far. There was an instance mid game that i only have 2 of it in hand and my opponent casts Transgress the Mind and he can't exile one of them lol. There's also this instance that i played against spirit deck and kept on Spell Quellering my grasp of darkness so when i cast dark salvation for , the 3rd queller can't counter it and made me do a chain of killing them spirits. I love that card. It's a 2 for 1 card. Good against aggro to control. It can kill and at the same time, it can generate zombies or both!.:D. Also, works fine with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Liliana, the Last Hope's ultimate.:)
I did use the Gisa's Bidding\From Under the Floorboards woth Wharf Infiltrator. The deck is fast but is weak vs decks with board wipe. Too bad they're not instant cards and Torrential Gearhulk can't recast them. Also, they're just good for generating zombies and that's it.
Maybe i'll consider putting in 2 From Under the Floorboards since i have both wharf and copter.:).
I appreciate your suggestions man.:)
October 16, 2016 12:59 p.m.
I figured there were good reasons for keeping Dark Salvation over the others ... just hadn't run in to any of them myself yet, so I appreciate your feedback there: very valid points!
I'm a frequenter of using Transgress the Mind so I'm a little embarrassed I didn't think of that practical reason myself haha
Keep it up!
October 16, 2016 4:18 p.m.
Thanks man. Consider playing Dark Salvation as well. You will love it.:)

The only blue spell you can, but do not want to cast, is Prized Amalgam. I don't think B/U is the way to go for Zombies anymore, I'd rather look towards the other colors for this deck. It's pretty meta to run Red now to play with Madness and Discard, and it makes a lot of sense here as well.
October 25, 2016 5:43 a.m.
Was honestly thinking about that but since i can always put in Wharf Infiltrator and some counter spells, i still stay as dimir.
October 25, 2016 6:02 a.m.
This deck looks awesome. But is it worth playing Scrapheap Scrounger?
November 13, 2016 6:52 a.m.
Yes OFC!.=). Just exile creatures like cryptbreaker or anyone if you are going for the kill in your next turn. They can also trigger Prized Amalgam just like Haunted Dead or Relentless Dead. Catch your opponent with surprise and poof... you win.=)

Beautiful deck my friend definitely gave me a lot to think about there are obviously a of BA blue zombies I've not Just not been having any luck with multi color lately takes a lot of the math work and stress away I know what land I'll pull. Plus my goal since I started playing magic has been to make a dominant mono black.but it looks like you got it down pat.My only 2 cents would be maybe Corpse Churn and Macabre Waltz to combo the madness maybe even Sanitarium Skeleton just because I feel like in that deck you could cycle the hell out of it. But like they say if it ain't broke don't fix it. You've given me a lot to think about much appreciated

AthestAbashi actually another BU zombie deck joined a major event here and won the first place with a prize of $1000. Well, it pissed me off actually since people were looking to compete for decks like Flash, vehicles and the likes... and now, i'm in the radar lol.
Actually, dual color is quite simple. Just go get some dual lands and you're set.:).
I'm glad to know that i my list helped you for some more idea. You can also do zombies. Its a lot faster than this. I jist dont want to get rid of negate that's why i stick with this color.:)
My advice for you is not to think of zombies too much and do think of an ability you wish to stick into like in zombies, recursion.
I actually like to add Relentless Dead here again but i don't it's a good idea against faster decks.

Nice deck, i have everything but the lilianas :c, hope to you make it very far
November 29, 2016 5:17 p.m.
Creatures die first then become exiled since it's a negative counter.:)
November 29, 2016 7:54 p.m.
Hey nice deck it helped me improve my Gixis aggro deck. :)
November 29, 2016 11:21 p.m.
bestmtgplayer1223 actually, this is the best deck to test out your control deck since this deck doesn't run out of creatures. Thanks for the upvote.=)
November 30, 2016 midnight
Your welcome. I tested it out as a mirror Match of a sort.
November 30, 2016 1:07 a.m.
I literally run the same type of deck except I run 4x Relentless Dead and not 4x Scrapheap Scrounger . Why would Scrapheap Scrounger be better? I usually use Relentless Dead put it back in my hand and pay 1 to bring back Cryptbreaker to crew the Smuggler's Copter. "Always have zombies on the field after a board wipe"
December 4, 2016 12:53 p.m.
Love the deck. I run a very similar deck but I run contingency plan instead of negate. I moved negate to the side board. What are your thoughts on contingency plan in this deck?
December 4, 2016 1:55 p.m.
Zomtar. I use scrounger because i can recur it after my opponent's turn ready to attack next turn for 3 damage. Yes relentless dead can do that, but once milled by Mindwrack Demon, i cant put him back on the battlefield. Also, if i have 1 Cryptbreaker and 7 mana, o can discard pariah and return scrounger and have her flip. Yes it can be done by Haunted Dead but i want other options as well. Another thing is, if liliana tlh uses 1st ability on relentless dead, it cant crew a vehicle.
December 4, 2016 6:23 p.m.
Crusaderjb. I like how Contingency Plan works. But it wont give you another card in your hand. Yes it smoothens the draw but i like to counter spells like Aetherworks Marvel, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Always Watching . Not to mention all vehicles.:). Soooo... i choose counters over contingency instead.
December 4, 2016 6:26 p.m.
I've played Relentless Deads countless of times. To be honest, if only i have upgraded my account, you can see my revision that the card is in and out of my deck. I've seen it's good side and it's bad side. I can say that it is a great card. But against Liliana and control decks, i don't think it's worth using right now. Creatures = speed, spells = defense. That's my game logic when it comes to aggro.
December 4, 2016 8:11 p.m.
Crusaderjb and also, there's no deck right now that negate is not useful. Even in RB aggro/zombie (negate Cathartic Reunion) and RG energy (negate Blossoming Defense) decks this can be used as a win card.
December 4, 2016 8:16 p.m.
Flaying Tendrils does ruin the plan. The creatures don't die, then exile. Tendrils replaces the "die" part with exile. Same with kalitas. So Zulaport Cutthroat and Relentless Dead don't do their thing
December 4, 2016 11:07 p.m.
happygilmore511 if you're looking at my update notes, you can see that it is inconsistent with my main and sideboard. Yes, I've realized and asked a judge about it. It's also the reason why i put 2 mainboard negate in this deck.:)
December 5, 2016 2:15 a.m.
i like the idea of recursion in the deck but it's pretty inconsistent I've play-tested it a few time and the lack of consistent draws really kills it for me. Would you not rather play 3 Liliana, the Last Hope and 3 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet also i would definitely play 3 copies of Grasp of Darkness main board also you might want to consider playing two copies of Negate main board since there are a ton of planeswalkers in the meta and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is a major threat and hope to deal with opposing lili's . them's my two cents hope it was constructive enough fer ya.. :)
December 13, 2016 8:21 a.m.
Thanks for the comment Ze_Geuse81
Actually, i'd like to play a 3rd copy of Liliana, the Last Hope and a copy of Corpse Churn but it will look exactly like the deck that won $1k in a competitive tournament in our country (lol) or maybe, 2 Corpse Churns. But definitely not a 3rd Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. I honestly played a lot of decks already and i don't think consistency is an issue. You just have to fill in your graveyard with tools. Regarding 3rd Grasp of Darkness, i would like to add it up but i currently don't have the space in my deck to fit it in. Also, i got 8 removals in this deck already. Sinister Concoction seems to do it's job well against Brisela, Voice of Nightmares and big threats that grasp can't deal with.
December 13, 2016 10:15 a.m.
I'd love to but he's got a very high casting cost. I'd like to finish the game early on if possible.
