I am pretty new to working with Wilhelt, but I have made one of my own and was looking at what cards people put into theirs. I liked Grimoire of the Dead and Call to the Grave and may use them in my deck. I was wondering why you have some cards like Dread Shade or Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon. They are not zombies nor do they seem to synergize with your deck. Perhaps you could replace them with Gisa and Geralf,Ravenous Rotbelly or something else that synergizes with your deck. Lastly, I noticed you seen to have a decent amount of sacrifice in your deck have you considered adding cards like Dictate of Erebos, Ruthless Deathfang, or Butcher of Malakir. Hope things work out with your deck and that you have fun with it. Wilhelt has been a lot of fun for me so far and I hope you are having fun with it too.

This looks like a really good, solid kitchen table-type deck! It's always nice to see more of those types of casual superstars.

One choice that stands out to me, however, is Warden of the Chained... he seems like a reasonable "underpriced creature with a drawback," but it's actually quite easy to do better in . The best example is perhaps Gruul Spellbreaker, who can be the same size and mana cost but has some other abilities, too, without the drawback. In my experience, the card is dirt cheap, so budget is no worry!

One other option you might want to consider is having a way to deal with noncreature permanents. It would be shut down by something like Sphere of Safety or Call to the Grave. I think one of the most efficient budget options is Hull Breach, though you might also like the incidental damage from something like Cindervines or Destructive Revelry. Ancient Grudge is also super efficient if you're more worried about artifacts in particular. If you'd rather handle it on the creature side of things, Sunder Shaman and Gemrazer are both solid options!

I was thinking more of Mimic Vat copying a zombie that auto-dies to create another zombie every turn. Two zombies if you copy one with Amass. Looking closer Call to the Grave wouldn't work because you have a full third of your creatures as non-zombies.

Call to the Grave? Mimic Vat maybe.

Hey, you're welcome.

Against opponent hexproof creatures you want more Fleshbag Marauder and Syphon Flesh sacrifice effects. Here's some budget options.

Living Death is powerful, but may be too expensive price. It's mass sacrifice for all players creatures and it's also mass reanimation for each player of any creatures that where in that players graveyard before you cast Living.


Black has some board wipes, unfortunately the better cards are not budget options, but here's a few that are.

  • Life's Finale : also puts any three creatures of your choice from one opponent's library into their graveyard to embalm them with Scarab.
  • Deadly Tempest : also does damage to each player.
  • Crux of Fate : if there's no problematic Dragons then choose all nonDragon creatures.

Idk who this Willy is, but no you.

This deck is a really a mono black build that you happen to run blue for Diregraf Captain . The way I see it you can either keep with the build you're going for, which to me seems like mono black, or you can go a much different dimir amass path with cards like Vizier of the Scorpion , Gleaming Overseer , Lazotep Plating ,

Let's assume you do mono black, then let's start with creatures. Brain Gorgers and Stromgald Crusader are garbage, Tomebound Lich is mostly used in dedicated reanimator decks, and Extremely Slow Zombie is a card from a joke set, so take those all out, along with Diregraf Captain . That's 11 out. Add 2 Murderous Rider , 3 Liliana's Reaver , 2 Undead Augur , 3 Diregraf Ghoul .

For noncreature spells, take out Negate . The best mono black removal is probably Walk the Plank . So take out Go for the Throat and Ultimate Price for 3. Gravepurge and Return from Extinction can be replaced with 3 Call of the Death-Dweller . Take out Bontu's Monument for another copy of Liliana, Untouched By Death or vise-versa. Take out Necromancer's Stockpile , I just don't think it's that good. For a five drop $1-2 slot, Open the Graves is better than Call to the Grave .

If you followed all that you should have 6 slots left. Add one more Swamp so you're at 22. Then maybe 3 Dread Wanderer , 2 Fleshbag Marauder , and flex card like Risen Executioner or something fun.
