1. Bridge from Below + Gravecrawler + Nantuko Husk - Gives me a super zombie and five 2/2s on turn 4 if Collective Brutality was cast turn 2 to discard Bridge from Below.

  2. Diregraf Colossus + Gravecrawler + Nantuko Husk - Exact result as Bridge from Below.

  3. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Nameless Inversion - Near infinite removal.

  4. Diregraf Colossus + Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Nameless Inversion - Near infinite removal that now nets me a 2/2 zombie each time.

Zero Drops

  1. Prized Amalgam- A stronger, less pesky Gravecrawler. They tend to come out of the graveyard in pairs. Doesn't count towards my curve since I won't be hard casting it.

  2. Bridge from Below- Champion of token generation and similar to Diregraf Colossus in how I use it. With Nantuko Husk, this is the first combo I'll try to hit. Also doesn't count towards my curve.

One Drops

  1. Gravecrawler- One of the motors of my deck. An infinite sac outlet or pestering aggro.

  2. Cryptbreaker- Discard outlet for Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and Bridge from Below. Useful card draw to speed things up.

Two Drops

  1. Collective Brutality- Great multipurpose control while also providing a discard outlet.

  2. Nameless Inversion- With Haakon, Stromgald Scourge in play, I can infinitely cast this spell.

  3. Relentless Dead- Great two drop with BB CMC adding to Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx's black devotion. Also helps with graveyard recursion or a sac outlet.

Three Drops

  1. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge- With this card in play, I can infinitely cast Nameless Inversion.

  2. Diregraf Colossus- Each Nantuko Husk sac or each Nameless Inversion generates a zombie.

  3. Nantuko Husk- Quickest win condition if Bridge from Below is in my graveyard. Sac Gravecrawler for a super creature.

  4. Geralf's Messenger- Great card with BBB CMC for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx's black devotion. Also a great sac outlet.

  5. Liliana of the Veil- My primary control instrument. Helps me discard, makes opponent discard or sacrifice their creature. Has BB for devotion. Must immediately be answered.

Four Drop

  1. Gifts Ungiven- With gifts, I can pick up a Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion, Bridge from Below, and Gravecrawler.

Cards I'd like to see printed Show


Lots of thinking and tweaking and after dropping green and going dimir I've finally got my deck where I want to be. Was able to drop Rotting Rats and Compelling Deterrence to fit in Liliana of the Veil without messing my mana curve up.

As far as sideboard plan goes, game two I will switch out Gifts Ungiven , Bridge from Below , Haakon, Stromgald Scourge , and Prized Amalgam to avoid the telegraphed graveyard hate in the opponent's sideboard and choose either a control approach with Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and another Liliana of the Veil or a devotion black aggro approach with more Relentless Dead , Geralf's Messenger , and Grey Merchant of Asphodel. Will probably change more than anything once I learn the local meta.

Next update will be the first results of FNM

This is seriously the most fun and promising Zombie combo deck I've seen for Modern +1

Thanks!! It was tough cutting green and Collected Company. As soon as I get the Bridge from Belows I'm going to take it to FNM and post results.

Good hearing from you again Lothen! I've actually been toying with Inquisition of Kozilek/Compelling Deterrence in the sideboard instead of the Haakombo/Gifts against decks that are spell heavy.

Wow this deck is awesome! I have a Zombie EDH deck so I can appreciate all the zombies and token production. As far as suggestions go I don't really have much, maybe Gempalm Polluter? Cycle him after a few turns of making tokens and that could almost be a wincon. Other than that it seems like a really well put together deck, good job on being awesome!

Hey thanks! Gempalm Polluter is an amazing card that I would kill for in modern along with Carrion Feeder and Survival of the Fittest.
