Varina, Lich Queen - Original design built on the and then updated with minor changes, moving more towards a 7x9 instead. Definitely a work in progress, however fairly solid at the moment. Suggestions are welcome.


The deck was originally built around a typical zombie tribal aggro deck, however it has since been adjusted to have a prison sub-theme to it with a taxation effect.

Phyrexian Altar + Stasis with any sack fodder makes Frozen Aether, Authority of the Consuls & Kismet a perfect fit.

Solemnity + Tombstone Stairwell makes the upkeep cost manageable, Phyrexian Altar helps pay for it. Spice it up with Corpse Knight, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead ro Wayward Servant and ping everybody when the tokens die at the end of each turn. Vengeful Dead specifically does this for all zombies, not just yours and Tombstone Stairwell does it's effect on every turn, not just yours, so it's taxing if not dealt with properly.

Archfiend of Ifnir + Varina, Lich Queen makes for a very nice potential board wipe that doesn't hurt you, and gets around hexproof as well. Utilize Bone Miser + Varina, Lich Queen to fuel your battlefield and graveyard, get that much needed mana or filter your the dead cards for new ones.
