korlash and his undead army

Commander / EDH Aggro Mono-Black Zombie



Hey all so i built this deck because i have never built firstly a mono colored deck and secondly an overly aggresive deck. And i must say that i am proud of this monster i have made. This korlash deck is designed to mesh together so well that it can lock down oppoenets on turnfor for 5 turns, cream a 1v1 opponent even a mono blue counter has problems with this deck, and has in the past taken on 4 players at one in multiplayer and laughed in there faces while doing so. There are cards in here that at first you wouldnt normally want in here lets face it for two black i can cycle a certain zombie and draw a card and then deal 1 damage to an opponent for each zombie in play, only good once right? Wrong combo it with Lord of Undead and you have card draw and dmg each turn, also cycle a different zombie to search for a swamp and put it into my hand is a good combo to continuesly do. This deck draws cards, has increased mana, and puts out creatures that are always doing something nasty at a quick and rapid pace. I love this deck and it has replaced my scion deck as my fav. Any comments or suggestions welcome please +1 if you like and i will make sure to do the same for you.

Yummy, I love me a good black deck <3

For one, it does look pretty good! Just what I like to see.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Can probably go, as everything aside from like 5 land are swamps anyway. Same goes for Infernal Darkness . Don't get fooled into thinking you get double mana for each of these!

Phyrexian Crusader seems out of place since he's infect. Replace with a Massacre Wurm !

card:Akroma's Memorial. You can't cast any spells are attach anything to your black creatures with this out.

I'd replace the cards mentioned with card:Geralf's Messenger, Gravecrawler , Ring of Xathrid , Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip , Seizan, Perverter of Truth , Rune-Scarred Demon , Sheoldred, Whispering One .

But definitely throw in Sorin Markov and Phthisis . Sorin gets your opponent to nearly dead on turn 6, and Phthisis gets rid of their big guys. That card has won me soooo many games.

Overall, I really enjoyed this deck! Keep it up!

I like all of your suggestions except one urborg stays in so it can turn all of my opponents lands into swamps for the swamp walk ability of zombie master.

McClair_Bear, I would keep Phyrexian Crusader because he is also running Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon .

Infernal Darkness also makes all of your opponents lands produce only black mana as well. From experience, anyone playing anything but black in a multiplayer game is screwed when that resolves for a few turns. I suggest leaving it in.

I'd consider adding some things like Tendrils of Corruption and Corrupt for big damage against an opponent. Exsanguinate would be a good one too.

Another nasty way of locking down your opponents is Mana Web and urborg. Anytime they tap a land, they tap em all.

You're deck looks like it needs more draw. I'd suggest Skeletal Scrying , Necrologia , Syphon Mind or other things to help you draw more cards late game.

Looks fun to play :D

Snow-Covered Swamp so your Extraplanar Lens doesn't help your opponents.
