1. Gravecrawler + Nantuko Husk - Super zombie. Explosive damage or clutch blocker.

  2. Diregraf Colossus + Gravecrawler + Nantuko Husk - Gives me a super zombie and five 2/2s on turn 5.

  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.

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. Useful card draw to speed things up.

  3. Ghoulcaller's Chant- Some cheap graveyard recursion. Powerful with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx in play.

Two Drops

  1. Relentless Dead- Cheap body with some nice recursion. BB helps with devotion.

  2. Collective Brutality- Such a versatile card. Primarily used to get Haakon, Stromgald Scourge into the graveyard. But the card makes an impact regardless.

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

Three Drops

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

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

  3. Nantuko Husk- Sac Gravecrawler for a super creature.

  4. Geralf's Messenger- Great card with BBB CMC for black devotion. Can be sacrificed to Nantuko Husk.

Four Drop

  1. Undead Warchief- Need a lord, but the three drop spot is full. Also reduces cost of Nameless Inversion.

Five Drop

  1. Grey Merchant of Asphodel- Finisher card if being cast, pretty much.


Updates Add

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 Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Will probably change more than anything once I learn the local meta.

Next update will be the first results of FNM
