Monoblack Demons & Zombies
Posted on July 27, 2018, 7:02 p.m. by EnricoHaddad
Hey guys, I'm new to magic and recently I found the really cool monowhite angels and spirits deck, and it made me think about a monoblack demons and zombies, but I could not find a deck that mixed up this two tribes. Is it not worth? Is it better to have them separated?
A mono-black demon and zombies deck could work, but it would be overall weaker than the mono-black zombies deck. There are currently several powerful lords and lord-like abilities (Death Baron,Liliana's Mastery,Lord of the Accursed), plus Graveyard Marshal's ability to generate zombies, which are definite 4-ofs in the deck, but you still need other zombies to make the deck work. You might be able to put a couple Demon of Catastrophes to use in conjunction with Graveyard Marshal while sacrificing Diregraf Ghoul/Dread Wanderer, but other than that, the demons are expensive to cast, and probably not worth it.

I think the zombie theme is relatively strong right now. I also like Plague Belcher for zombies even though it rotates in a couple months. You can attack with a Diregraf Ghoul and then cast the belcher in the second main phase, put the -1/-1 counters on the ghoul which will kill it and deal an additional 1 damage to the opponent, and then you have a monster 5/4 zombie with menace on turn 3 which only gets worse when a Death Baron comes out to give it deathtouch and +1/+1. Demon of Catastrophes is the only demon I am running in my zombie deck right now, and I usually sac a Stitcher's Supplier to get him in, which also feeds your graveyard if you have a Graveyard Marshal.
