This deck is what the popular and deadly zombies deck looks like in the current metagame. It is incredibly fast and can pull wins out of absolutely nowhere.
The theme of this deck is the death of creatures. Gravecrawler is one of the more powerful cards in the deck: we have 12 zombies, so it can be activated often. Diregraf Ghoul is not only a zombie but too good to pass up as a 2/2 for 1.
At two we have a few options. One is another 1 drop and a guildgate. Another is removal. The best, however, is to play Knight of Infamy . It pumps up an attack as soon as it hits the board, and dodges around white decks, whch with Lingering Souls and Restoration Angel s is an issue.
The three mana slot is dominated by Geralf's Messenger . It can provide a high-power, recurring attacker, as well as 2 damage upon entering the battlefield and 2 more just for dying.
The top of the curve is Thundermaw Hellkite . It always hits onthe first attack, and clears the way for the aristocrat, as well as being a humongous flying body.
Searing Spear seems like a weak spell, but it is good enough for the last bit of damage or to kill a troublesome creature.
Mark of Mutiny turns their best blocker upside down. It's an amazing finisher in a standstill.
Victim of Night is a great way to kill any big creature in the format, and can easily drop out for the second game in a mirror.
Cremate is graveyard removal against reanimator
Pillar of Flame goes in for the mirror match
Underworld Connections is for long games against control, where I can grind out a win with card advantage and persistence.
Vampire Nighthawk is good in the mirror, and a great card in general.
zealous consripts for when I need more stealing.
The maybeboard is cards that I like for this deck but either don't cut it or I can't find room. I would love to hear your thoughts on the cards.
I find all your comments useful as long as they are constructive. If you feel that a certain deck will beat this, then please test it yourself. I will probably also test the matchup, but I want you not to post useless information. Also, If you find the deck pleasant and destructive enough, there is a fun little button called "upvote" in the corner that you can use to show your appreciation.
That's all, folks! Don't forget to Upvote, Please!

The deck just went down a lot is value and also in bonfires. I tooke them out because I actually want to build this deck ans also because they are not at their top game in here. If I get one I may put it in to intimidate people at FNM, but otherwise I think it is not secessary to the type of deck I am going for. Also took out Ultimate Price , added olivia, and other switches, like the inclusion of Brimstone Volley .
Plus, 20 votes and 2500 views is pretty cool, huh?
Hey cartwheel I'm having trouble with jund with my vamp deck called broke tears if you can help that would be awesome :) .
