clayperce, check out my Ponza deck + primer if you haven't gotten tired of them yet; mine has some more unique aspects to it that you might want to see.

LeaPlath it means the same thing... this deck is not legal in modern.

It's interesting how this deck is listed as modern but has a very banned card in it...

aeonstoremyliver haha that's exactly how it feels... sometimes it feels like a draft deck, but other times it feels like the best deck ever. Nothing like having Blood Moon + Choke against a control player haha.

RG Ponza is way better. Prowess can't really beat a lot of decks, but turn 2 Blood Moon can be a win on its own. Definitely worth it.

Hey, I have built a zombie deck. I played it at a GP, so I have some experience. Bloodghast is not as good as many zombies simply because it doesn't have a tribal bonus. Aether Vial will be better than Liliana of the Veil since zombies want to be more aggressive. Plague Belcher seems really really sweet, I would run 4. I would take out Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and some number of Inquisition of Kozileks and removal spells for Death Baron as a 4-of. The new Amonkhet lord, Lord of the Accursed, seems really good also. I would also bring Collective Brutality into the main. From my experience, Diregraf Colossus is way too slow, and when you win with it, you were already winning anyways. I would use Marsh Flats instead of Bloodstained Mire for a white splash, getting you some really awesome sideboard tech along with Path to Exile and Wayward Servant in the main. A word of warning: DO NOT run Prized Amalgam in this list. It doesn't trigger often and is in most cases straight worse than a Death Baron or Lord of the Accursed.
Zombies are quite powerful, so keep with it. It definitely can keep up in the meta right now, and can do some hilarious things with Aether Vial in play.

Um... Death's Shadow can't get larger than a 13/13... am I missing something?

+1 for primer, man! More people should do in-depth primers like this, it makes stuff more interesting.

Hey there Drkuhn, thanks for the comment!
I posted an FNM result from last Friday just now, so you should take a look at that.
If you are not on a budget for your mono green deck, I'd highly recommend adding red for Blood Moon, as it can sometimes read 'You Win the Game' against some opponents.
My reasoning for not playing Elderscale Wurm is as follows: the wurm always is cast for 7 (three of which is Green, which sometimes matters) and doesn't actually stop life drain effects and such. Platinum Emperion simply shuts down any conventional ways of winning. In addition, the Madcap Experiment + Platinum Emperion combo is cast for 4 mana and only needs one card in hand, Madcap Experiment. This allows me to cast it on turn 2, unlike turn 4-5 for the wurm.
Anger of the Gods hits my mana dorks also, and costs double red. I would rather get a sometimes-bonfire-for-x=7 in the main than always 3 to everything.
Thanks again for the input!
