Description

With Amonkhet's arrival zombies are viable now more than ever. Zombies such as Lord of the Accursed, Diregraf Captain, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed provide ways boosts to our zombies and make them more than your average undead horde.

This deck also strives to create tons of tokens (looking at you Army of the Damned and Endless Ranks of the Dead) and to gain bits of life using your zombies so that you can stay alive long enough to overwhelm your opponents.

I know that Oloro, Ageless Ascetic isn't a zombie, but he fit my colors and gains me life. I doubt he will leave the command zone much. (Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept are commanders under consideration)

As always comments, critiques, and suggestions are highly encouraged.

SpiritoftheSands, I had Dread Wanderer in while I was brainstorming, but he was cut because I didn't have enough room and felt other zombies/spells were more effective and useful.

In Garruk's Wake instead of Plague Wind, unless you have a lot of creatures that regenerate.

Thanks for the suggestion! In Garruk's Wake will definitely be replacing Plague Wind.

Glad I could help! Also, Liliana, the Last Hope is awesome if you can afford it.

Shadow12721, I've been thinking about her for the past few days trying to figure out what to cut for her. Liliana, the Last Hope goes great with my token theme. I finally decided to cut Scourge of Nel Toth for her.

I kept forgetting to put her in1, so thanks for commenting and suggesting it. You forced me to finally do it. :P

Since you're not planning on casting Oloro, have you considered playing some of the partners? Ravos, Soultender seems great for rebuying zombies, and then you could play either the UB or UW partner to fill out your colours.

PlattBonnay, during my brainstorm I considered a partner pair of Ravos, Soultender and either Silas Renn, Seeker Adept or Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker. Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept where a real contender for the commander. Ravos would be good because I can get creatures back, but I feel like Silas Renn is more for an artifact deck. I like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic because he can just sit in the command zone and gain me life.

However, now that you bring it up and I've thought about it Ravos, Soultender and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept might be a better pair for my commander than Oloro, Ageless Ascetic.

Thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it

I just playtested, and while Ravos would have been a useful commander, Oloro actually kept me alive and technically won me the game due to life totals. I was playing 1v1 against a Cascade Superfriends deck.

Well is this supposed to be a 1v1 deck Darkshadow327? Because 1v1 commander (mtgo or paper) is a very different format, and I think that if this deck is supposed to be played in a 1v1 environment, there's a lot that should change.

Shadow12721, thanks for the play testing! I've been meaning to do some testing on Untap. Did the tokens work? If you could message my profile and tell me how the play testing went that would be great.

PlattBonnay, I'm not really sure what format of commander this would do best in. However, I do feel like this deck would be better in 1v1 circumstances.

I can't believe you don't run an Anointed Procession since you have a lot of token generators.

You really should!

Also, Throne of the God-Pharaoh because a LOT of zombies enter the battlefield tapped.

Otherwise, seems like quite a resilient zombie deck. +1 from me to you!

I knew I was forgetting something! This whole time I have been trying to remember Anointed Procession once I realized this generated lots of tokens. Thanks for the suggestion!
