Golgari zombie deck with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Diregraf Captain.

The deck is a agro/combo deck. the agro cards are Gravecrawler/ Dreg Mangler /Geralf's Messenger that later help combo with sacrifice effects + Blood Artist/Diregraf Captain.

The goal is getting the enemy as low as possible while setting up your combo. This also makes your oponent waste removal on your agressive creatures rather then your combo pieces.

The big combo's are creatures+Blood Artist/Diregraf Captain+Killing Wave with heavy board presence (combo's with enemy's creatures aswell) or Blood Artist/Diregraf Captain+Gravecrawler+Grimgrin, Corpse-Born (+Rooftop Storm for ininite).

the Name is for Grimgrin, Corpse-Born eating other zombies/corpses wich makes him necrophagous

anny suggestions/tips/+1's or random chatter always welcome:)


updated to replace Victim of Night with Far / Away.

Pithing Needle in sideboard vs AEtherling/planeswalkers and Scavenging Ooze.

Lifebane Zombie in sideboard for an intimidate beater who reveals their hand.

Gonna test on cockatrice how it fairs in the current standard.

I would mainboard Lotleth Troll it's an incredibly powerful card and Varolz, the Scar-Striped is also really good +1

also I don't really like Rooftop Storm it's too expensive and you don't really have expensive zombies

you missed the part of infinite combo with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Gravecrawler wich happens often enough to get a spot in here. but i could make a sideboard change into more beatdown instead of combo with varolz and lotleth. not entirly sure how though

I'm curious how often you find Rooftop Storm to be useful. If you remember I have that similar deck to this and I just actually took them out because I found that by turn 6 I usually had the game practically won or had lost. I also find Abrupt Decay to be incredibly useful (it kills Silverblade Paladin , Boros Reckoner , Vampire Nighthawk , and countless other threats plus is great and stalling aggro) and think it might help if you try running more than 1 mainboard.

The biggest problem with Abrupt Decay is that I don't always have a green source available turn 2-3. But yeah it removes tons of stuff and Putrefy takes care of the rest.

I might replace one Victim of Night with another mainboard Abrupt Decay . although the main threats that i can't remove with victim. I can't remove with abrupt decay either (Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip and Olivia Voldaren ).

about the Rooftop Storm though, it tends to win me about 25% of the games I win. I could remove both grimgrin and rooftop for Varolz, the Scar-Striped and some more removal to replace them, but honestly I just like Grimgrin, Corpse-Born .

While I know it's not a zombie, and therefore may be a slight hindrance, Ruthless Deathfang fits the color scheme, and could offer you some additional creature removal.
