Gisa and Geralf, Corpses Everywhere!

Liliana Raises the Dead

Zombie lords and zombies with utility abilities are your main objective.
  • Undead Warchief Best lord affect you have in the deck. Zombies are cheaper AND he hits himself on the buff.

  • Death Baron Buff to other zombies and makes others scared to block. Always a good choice.

  • Zombie Master Regenerate and swampwalk? sounds pretty good to me.

  • Diregraf Captain Not only is he a lord, hes also a combo piece. Just great all together.

  • Cemetery Reaper Buff is nice, and the off chance to need to make more is pretty good too.

  • Mikaeus, the Unhallowed buff to all non humans and undying. I'd say that's pretty darn powerful.

  • Risen Executioner Buff and can always be played from the graveyard. That's just a nice perk.

  • Carrion Feeder Sac outlet and gets bigger. love it.

  • Coffin Queen Let me bring back my ETB trigger? yes please.

  • Cryptbreaker

  • Diregraf Colossus

  • Fatestitcher untaps important cards like Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

  • Fleshbag Marauder Abuse his ETB to help manage the field

  • Gempalm Polluter

  • Gravecrawler Auto include. just too powerful do to combo potential.

  • Gray Merchant of Asphodel Combo piece. win game by abusing his ETB.

  • Grimgrin, Corpse-Born Sac outlet, gets bigger, AND destroys a creature on attack trigger. Savage.

  • Havengul Lich Cast stuff from the graveyard for one more mana than CMC? Such a broken card. Honestly wish he was able to be the commander.

  • Helldozer Big baddie that also destroys those pesky Maze of Ith and other problems.

  • Lich Lord of Unx Makes more Zombies and hurts them for your field?

  • Prized Amalgam this things comes back on its own. thats just cool

  • Relentless Dead

  • Scourge of Nel Toth

  • Sidisi, Undead Vizier Tutor? sweet.

  • Vengeful Dead another Win con piece.

  • Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Diregraf Captain/Vengeful Dead This gives you infinite triggers to make opponents lose life. It is pretty great.

  • Rooftop Storm + Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Phyrexian Altar/Ashnod's Altar + Havengul Lich will let you get there from his ETB trigger.

  • Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born/Carrion Feeder means infinite power/toughness

    No Plague Belcher? You might also consider River Kelpie. Though not a zombie, the kelpie nets you two cards every time you cast a zombie from the grave. Other possibilities: Undead Alchemist, Intruder Alarm, Stitcher Geralf, Dread Summons.

    At least for flavor reasons I feel like this deck would love Army of the Damned and Zombie Apocalypse.

    Hey I run this commander. It's one of my favorite brews. I have more emphasis on grave filling, with Geralf's Mindcrusher, Altar of Dementia, and stuff like that. So I use Witchbane Orb to help protect my grave. I also run Laboratory Maniac as an alt win, which I have pulled off a couple times. Other random cards worth looking into are Noxious Ghoul, Secrets of the Dead, Dreamborn Muse, Scourge of Nel Toth, Urza's Incubator. If you wanna peruse my brew, its on my profile. Happy Necromancing!

    I play this commander, love it. Four hero cards in my deck are:

    Buried Alive is a great way to get your best zombies into grave for command ability

    Secrets of the Dead is great, because Gisa and Geralf's ability counts as casting from grave. (Says already considered by you, really consider it. It's great)

    Vengeful Pharaoh has basically deathtouch from grave. Either people forget about him and swing with a big guy, or he acts as a deterrent against attacking.

    Moonlight Bargain look at top 5 and put zombies into grave and anything you really want into hand for very small life

    I had a chance to go through your deck more thoroughly today. I love Sudden Spoiling, gonna have to add it to my The Cranberries with an eyepatch.

    I also really like Beacon of Unrest and Unearth, but i dont think i can justify the 5 mana cost on the Beacon.

    Nice deck build.

    Hybrow the reason i justify Beacon is due to the fact it hits any graveyard, creatures + artifacts, AND it shuffles. More times I can count, Beacon has be involved with a major play in not only my deck, but an opponent's deck.

    Thank you and maxon for the suggestion of Secrets of the Dead i think that will definitely be an include instead of Endless Ranks of the Dead (ends up never being used) or Compelling Deterrence

    cool deck +1 I used to have a zombie deck sort of like this and it was fun to play with but I'm now working on an angel-demon deck Iroas's Judgement.

    Lord of the Accursed can be a powerful lord late game, giving your team menace can easily finish someone off
