Took out Gravecrawler and Geralf's Messenger since my Gravecrawlers did not get sent with my singles order. So it's back to Typhoid Rats and Strangleroot Geist .

I run a similar deck with less focus on undying and sacrifice. I'd add more naturalize in sideboard and drop mainboard to 60 cards. Demonlord of Ashmouth would be a great addition in this deck.

Thanks, I think I'll slip a Demonlord of Ashmouth for an extra Sacrifice proc for Morbid. Maybe drop a creature to get below 60 and open up some options. I'm a new-old player to MTG and still getting my balance down between creatures/sorcery/land/instants etc. I'll trim it down and see how the Demonlord plays out.

I actually just took Skirdag High Priest out, but I'm thinking of taking out Prey Upon and using Tragic Slip instead. I figure Prey Upon is an easy 1 mana cost kill if I have the bigger creature, but I like Tragic Slip for taking out THEIR bigger creature. I'll see what I can squeeze to slip 2X of the Priest back in and play around with it.

Can't think of the name of the card but there is a demon I ran in a deck like this and when something dies you get to kill something at the end step. It's an Innistrad card I think.

So you sac a creature and then kill an opponent's. 6cmc. So maybe you run one or two.

@TheMadSwagger: You're thinking of Reaper from the Abyss .

Phoxly, if you want ideas you should check out my Morbid Reaper and BlckGaming's Think Morbid Thoughts and read the comments. They're both more focused on the morbid aspect I think, but they still follow the same general strategy as you do.

Vorapede could be a nice fatty to help you get some extra points in. And a Garruk Relentless  Flip might be a good addition as well.

I think I may drop Butcher Ghoul and throw in Blood Artist instead.

I think to be able to rely on gravecrawler you need a few more zombies. Geralf's messanger fits into this decks stratagy, and as your not trying to reanimate anyone vile rebirth would be good, and it has the added advantage of being able to get rid of your opponents creatures if they interact with their graveyard at all. your mana base could also use 2 more swamps instead of forests I think.

Thanks Moonreader1. I took out Demonlord of Ash. and Gutter Grime and added 2x card:Geralf's Messenger (only own 2 of him so far). Or do you think I should keep Gutter Grime ?
