Army of the Damned Discussion

Hello, TypicalTimmy. I don't really mean to necro this, but I somehow missed your post back when you made it. I would like to address it now, though.
I agree with you on how powerful the Army of the Damned and 2x Undead Warchief are in the deck. They got added by design and are actually in the deck to created blowouts for the Horde! Same with some of the other cards in the deck.
I do like the idea of adding The Scarab God for flavor and to put a clock on the Survivors. But, I am worried about the activated ability. Since the Horde has infinite mana, it would immediately activate it's ability on all available targets every turn it is in play. This may make it impossible to beat for the Survivors. I am going to add it and see how it plays out. But it might be way too far up the power scale for this. And the Horde does have a hand, can draw cards, and can hold cards in it. It just usually empties it's hand in the pre-combat main phase if it has anything in it. Or post-combat main phase if stuff got bounced during combat.
I won't be adding Liliana, Untouched By Death mostly for flavor and because the Horde is not supposed to use decision-making cards and planeswalkers have situational abilities so this would seem pushing against one of the core rules. Also, it's more a horde of mindless zombies than a concerted military effort and her presence on the battlefield would seem a little too intentional. I know I have some lords here to buff the horde, but I pretend they are only a tiny bit more self-willed than the zombies around them.
Thank you very much for providing insight and suggestions to the deck! I appreciate the help!

It seems to have been quite a while since this deck have been updated. Is it possible we might see an update in the future after we have gotten some pretty cool new toys for this deck like:
And i had some questions about cards you might consider adding or why you have them in your deck at the moment.
Rooftop Storm: Although 6 CMC is high, it can net you mana quite quick with the amount of card draw you have and with only 3-non zombies it should be possible to benefit from it quite often.
Endless Ranks of the Dead: The upkeep trigger is not amazing as it is lowering the amount of zombies produced by quite a bit. But if going wide with more zombie token generation do you think it could be slot in?
Noosegraf Mob: This one confuses me a bit. 5x 2/2 zombie tokens for 6 mana, that relies on your opponents to cast spell to produce them and the noosegraf just dies. How has it performed? I can see it do some good work but i have never really expected this card to be that good.
Josu Vess, Lich Knight: How often has this guy been good? 4 mana for a 4/5 zombie is okay, but not amazing, and his kicker ability is good, but not amazing as it costs the same as a flashback Army of the Damned and you get 5 less zombies. But how has he performed?
Havengul Lich: It seems to be a cheaper less on theme scarab god ability, but still quite good, what do you think of this card?
Grimgrin, Corpse-Born: If you can get him up and running he can definetly be a beater, but how has he performed.
Geth, Lord of the Vault: Seems really good, is he mostly used to get other ramp pieces or can he be used to get other creature threats?
The deck still looks amazing, but would be nice to see an update soon and how you would adjust with these new cards :D

Got a question? Love you deck ideas, and you say you like off wall fun wins tell me then would my combo work?
Swarm Intelligence in play then cast Army of the Damned copy it, cast Call to Mind copy it return both Army of the Damned and Call to Mind then repeat, and of course I already have infinite mana combo popped off

Zulaport Cutthroat and friends are usually the main win con. In the combos listed above, you Sac one to recur the other in an infinite loop. I’ve also found that Storm Herd and Army of the Damned work well. With Teysa Karlov out the drain effects now trigger for 2 so that’s 26 damage with the army and you can flashback next turn. The lifegain from the tokens has helped on occasion as well
