Description

Im testing phase, better description after I've finished. Pretty close right now. Focuses on controlling the board and using indirect life loss and mass zombies. A few turns of control and cryptbreaker allows our engine to get going. Nantuko husk+gravecrawler is one of our power finishes. Otherwise we swing with lots of little zombies and give them menace with LotA.

Love the deck! I don't really have any recommendations but I'm wondering on what your thoughts on splashing green/ going abzan for Collected Company. This isn't really a recommendation, your deck looks like that would be better without it but it seems like it could be interesting.

Yeah when building you can go one of two ways I think. Golgari CoCo or B/W Vial. Both builds would allow you to aggressively pump out zombies and control the board as well. With golgari you also get access to abrupt decay, so I definitely think both builds are great and equally powerful, similar to the different elf builds. But I think that you go either Vial or CoCo, probably not both considering zombies don't really work like elves/merfolk in that those decks are able to just go all in. Zombies need to take their time and use recursion and lots of kill cards to their advantage.

I don't know if I would go tricolored because then you don't really use Nykthos all that well.

Empty the Pits?

Lots of BB in these permanents for Nykthos to ramp on, nothing big to spend it on.

Off you're gonna go Bw, Tidehollow Sculler seems like an auto include. Bg on the other hand has Lotleth Troll, which is great to pitch a gravecrawler to, or a blood ghast if you don't mind deviating from zombs just a bit. Heheh, pack in a singleton Verolz for the lulz, get all kinds of value off of Belcher.

Off = if. F***ing auto correct.

Tidehollow is a great suggestion. I'm just not sure what I would take out for him.

Some interesting choices. Just a thought but i reckon Wayward Servant probably wants some token generation in the deck. Relentless Dead like a low curve to be optimal. It makes it easier to hold your own dudes. Cryptbreaker fills both of these roles as it fills the one drop slot and makes tokens.

Diregraf Colossus! Amazing synergy with Wayward Servant, especially if you are running Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead. I was thinking of doing this with my BU zombie deck and splashing white just for this combo.

Sac Gravecrawler to Nantuko Husk. Cast again from graveyard and get a 2/2 token from Diregraf Colossus. Do it over and over. Net a 2/2 zombie for each black mana you spend. Have fun!

Added colossus, definitely the right move. The new lord doesn't deserve a 4spot.
