Lots of them.

This deck is centered around getting as many Zombies out as possible, all the while bolstering them and keeping your opponents' offenses subdued. During this, you can send a couple of sucker punches their way and knock them out for good.


The Lords are the linchpin in this deck. While you're bringing out your mass of Zombies, these cards will constantly buff them. The Undead Warchiefs reduce the mana cost of all other Zombies coming out into play, which makes casting your Zombie spells that much easier. The Death Barons add Deathtouch to your Zombies, making attacking your opponents devastating, even if they properly defend. The Diregraf Captain deals damage to an opponent should a ZOmbie you control die.

This combo is particularly effective, even if you don't manage to get both cards out. The Endless Ranks of the Dead will increase the amount of Zombies you control if you don't get out Army of the Damned. However, if you do, the effect is devastating. The turn after you bring out the 13 Zombies, you would get 6 more. After that, you would get 10. See where this is going?

Army of the Damned can be potentially cast on the 4th turn if you manage to draw 2 Dark Rituals within those turns, along with Army of the Damned.

Call to the Grave has been the bane of all of the people I've played against. Every turn it causes your opponent to sacrifice a non-Zombie. Whenever this happens, you activate the Cemetery Reaper's ability, exile that creature, and put a Zombie into play, increasing your ranks even more while permanently disabling your opponent.

This is my personal favorite. Gempalm Polluter is meant to be cycled. When it's cycled, you can activate Unholy Grotto's ability and put it back on top of your deck. If you have two Gempalm Polluters, you can cast it up to four times in one turn as long as you have the land and Unholy Grottos.


Since the Deck has went through a drastic change, I'm currently working on decent combos or replacements for the Sideboard. Any suggestions?

Comments and suggestions are always appreciated!

Maybe a Zombie Master or two would be nice. Wouldn't really work with Call to the Grave tho.

Interesting deck and love the description +1. It could fun to have 1 Swamp 4 Dark Ritual and Army of the Damned + 1 random card as opening hand lol Turn 1 Army of the Damned ! But i doubt that will never happen.

I think deck is slow. Agro or combo would kill you before you buils your dead army. Control decks would have enaugh time to take control a board. Zombie deck shold be an agro. You need more creatures like Diregraf Ghoul. You also need Geralf's Messenger.Remove Call to the Grave, Rooftop Storm, Army of the Damned, Unholy Grotto. They are weak. Cut the number of lords and Gempalm Polluters and add removal spells. Consider playing mono black to have faster mana base.

Take a look to my zombie deck:

I like Vedalken Ghoul and Grixis Grimblade although the Undead Warchiefs make the latter obsolete. But they're fast to play and they synergise with Diregraf Captains well.

Also, another fun strat is to use Voracious Null and feed your other zombies to him constantly, cos it doesn't tap him and you can do it as soon as he's out. Null + gravecrawler + rooftop storm = awesome.
