Blasting Station Discussion

Nice upgrade, Dementia is one of the best sac outlets in Commander since you can choose to target an opponent or yourself. It's a win condition with many combos because you can target opponent. Sac outlets that can also be win conditions such as Dementia, Goblin Bombardment and Blasting Station are valuable in Commander. High Market is a budget land that can sac.

Hey, nice upgrades of Demonic, Acererak, Stitcher, Gravecrawler, Grim, Sidisi, Cryptbreaker, Master, Undead, Remembrance, Titan, Victimize, Misty, Drowned, Clearwater.
Interesting choices to cut the mana rock ramp other than Sol from the precon and reduced the lands from 40 to 31. Reducing the lands is fine because 40 lands in the precon is too much. Although, only 31 lands is pretty risky; I wouldn't play below 34 if I'm not playing green. The problem is you haven't compensated for the reduction of lands by adding more ramp to have enough mana or more low CMC draw to help to draw lands or some of both. It looks like you have cut lands to add more high CMC cards which is the wrong approach when upgrading a precon.
With a budget of $400+ consider adding the mana rocks? The precon has Arcane Signet, Talisman of Dominance and Crowded Crypt, all these are good. Add to these Dimir Signet and Thought Vessel; these two are upgrades for the Diamonds. More low CMC draw can also replace lands such as Brainstorm, Preordain, Deadly Dispute, Frantic Search, Village Rites.
Dreadhorde Invasion is a two drop in the precon and it's a good repeatable Zombie source for Wilhelt. Sac the Zombie Army token at your end step on each of your turns for a repeatable draw source that only costs you 1 life on your turn. Midnight Reaper is also in the precon and it's a Zombie who can be a repeatable source of draw especially with Gravecrawler.
Some cards to consider cutting because they're not as good as others here:
- Lord of the Forsaken
- Sludge Monster
- Eternal Skylord: don't need it because you have Hordewing Skaab.
- Dread Summons
- Ghoul's Night Out
- Oriq Loremage: don't need it because you have Vile Entomber.
- Syphon Flesh
- Whispersilk Cloak
- Empty the Laboratory
- Liliana's Mastery
- Open the Graves
- Risen Executioner
- Phyrexian Crusader
- Ebondeath, Dracolich
- Army of the Damned
I don't think you have the mana to support X spells such as Summons and Empty to get enough from them to be worth casting. Adding Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would help also with casting Army.
- Blasting Station: can be the win condition with either Gravecrawler or Factory combo.
- Carrion Feeder: one drop Zombie.
- Ashnod's Altar: combos with Havengul Lich + Rooftop to repeatedly reanimate/sac/reanimate all Zombies in all graveyards.
- Altar of Dementia: infinite mills all your opponents when you control Factory by repeatedly sacing just one Zombie. Can also be the win condition with Gravecrawler + Rooftop.
Good luck with your deck.

@ Chaotic_Justice Thanks for your suggestions and giving my list an upvote. I appreciate you taking the time to check out my list.
Emancipation Angel is good in more casual lists then mine. The 3 CMC is more problematic here. I am already running Kor Skyfisher and Glint Hawk. If I decide I need another of these effects I will add in Aviary Mechanic (2 CMC). However the better combos in the list use the graveyard and include Junk Diver, Myr Retriever, Scrap Trawler, and Workshop Assistant. The 3 CMC cost here matter less as all the pieces are artifacts and trigger Teshar's ability.
Aetherflux Reservoir used to be in the list before it became more competitive. Yes Walking Ballista is the go to win con but Altar of Dementia, Blasting Station, and Grinding Station also win the game if Walking Ballista is exiled. The problem with Aetherflux Reservoir is it doesn't do much except act as a way to win. All the other ways I mentioned are sac outlets when unable to win on the spot / mill you into the win. If I was to add another win con to the deck I would add Altar of the Brood (also used to be in the deck) as 1 CMC is more likely to be useful in triggering Teshar.
Rings of Brighthearth is tempting. I am very familiar with the combos around it. Used to run Arcum Dagsson cEDH before the Paradox Engine banning. But this list for Teshar is so tight I'm unsure of if there is a place for it here.
The card I have been considering is Voltaic Key / Manifold Key for the value they can get with Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith, and Mana Vault. Of course I would also love to add Lion's Eye Diamond. If only my budget allowed for it.

Hey, good upgrades so far of the precon. Nice first attempt, but your deck doesn't have a Commander.
In the deck editor add the CMDR tag after Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver text.
1x Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver *CMDR*
When you save and return to your deck then Wilhelt will be the Commander with it's own category and card image.
Undead Augur is in the precon and cutting it is a mistake because it triggers to draw when it dies or any other Zombie including a Zombie token dies. Because it triggers when decayed Zombies die then it can be an excellent source of repeatable draw and it's a Zombie. Augur because it's only two mana is really good with Gisa and Geralf.
Nice foil Acererak the Archlich. Him along with Rooftop Storm is your best way of winning. A way to win with Wilhelt is Poppet Factory which is the backside of Poppet Stitcher Flip. Factory removes decayed from Zombies letting you with a sac outlet repeatedly sac a decayed Zombie to create another one. Blasting Station or Altar of Dementia are win condition sac outlets with Factory.
If you want to infinite combo with Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm then you also need a sac outlet which Carrion Feeder being a Zombie is helpful. Blasting Station or Altar of Dementia are also win conditions with infinite Gravecrawler. If Rooftop Storm is how you want to win then consider some more protection: Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Lazotep Plating? With 11 Islands Mystic Sanctuary can be a helpful land.
Some changes to consider including some cards in the maybeboard:
- Undead Augur --> Ruthless Deathfang
- Poppet Stitcher Flip --> Stitcher Geralf
- Blasting Station --> Ammit Eternal
- Altar of Dementia --> Havengul Runebinder
- Carrion Feeder --> Undead Alchemist
- Counterspell --> Soulless One
- Arcane Denial --> Prowling Geistcatcher
- Lazotep Plating --> Dread Summons
- Cryptbreaker --> Ebondeath, Dracolich
- Lord of the Undead --> Liliana's Mastery
- Living Death --> Ravenous Rotbelly
- Jet Medallion --> Obelisk of Urd
- Infernal Grasp --> Foul Renewal
Good luck with your deck.

Boogsbay Thank you for such a thorough comment and suggestions! You've confirmed my suspitions that this deck is too slow.
I was tempted to take out Cryptbreaker for Undead Augur but was being stubborn since I spent the money on Cryptbreaker already lol. But it makes sense to take them out. No use if I need to tap three zombies and the point of this deck is to constantly be sacrificing them.
Carrion Feeder was on my radar but I figured I already had enough avenues for sacrifice, but it wouldnt hurt to add more. Plus he gets bigger and can become a threat if not dealt with.
I would love some fetch lands, but my budget doesn't right now haha. But I can add it to the deck so that it is fully optimized. Good point with the Godless Shrine with the Castle Locthwain play. I didn't even consider that.
In my mind Geralf's Messenger and Gravecrawler are the ultimate zombie cards and represent everything that a zombiue deck should be. I also wanted some of him, but my budget also doesn't allow it unfortunately.
I liked the life gain that Wayward Servant provided, but I see Corpse Knight would be better. Not only would it enable triggers from Zulaport Cutthroat but also Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia. That's a potential 6 more triggers.
Again, I really appreciate such great feedback!

The deck looks good but seems somewhat slow. Some suggestions IMO would be:
Out 4 Cryptbreaker for 4 Undead Augur which gives a lot of card advantage with no life loss thanks to Zulaport Cutthroat and Wayward Servant. The problem with Cryptbreaker is that it needs 3 zombies to draw a card. The Augur also pairs great with Village Rites and Bone Shards for more card advantage. If any board wipe happens, you can sacrifice your zombies to Carrion Feeder to trigger the Augur to easily rebuild.
Out 6 Plains for Fetch Lands that can fetch a swamp (Marsh Flats is at it's cheapest)
Out 1 swamp and 2 Castle Locthwain for 3 Geralf's Messenger. With a smaller average CMC, you can cut a few more lands for more creatures. Keeping just 1 Castle is also good enough since Augur in the main deck gives more cards than the Castle's ability.
Unearth over Blasting Station if you already swapped out some land for Geralf's Messenger. These two, at the very least, makes the opponent lose 8 life; more with Cutthroat and Knight on the field. Reanimating other creatures is also another viable strategy to get out of a tight situation.
Ghoulish Procession over Jadar since it's a nonlegendary permanent that can potentially make more zombies to fuel an aristocrats strategy and trigger ETB and death triggers.

I personally like the lords for the buff and the abilities that they give to the other zombies. The deathtouch from Death Baron can be super useful.
I instantly got excited when I saw Champion of the Perished in the new set. I'll definitely get a set when they come out.
You've definitely given me something to think about with these suggestions.
