Deathmark Prelate Discussion

Cabal Archon seems like a pretty strong card to include, kind of like a Kalastria Highborn for Clerics. Seems a bit better than Deathmark Prelate, since you're only running two Zombies in your list.

Order of the Ebon Hand is a pretty cool card. They're fairly aggressive, and inexpensive to cast. Early beater, or fuel for Dark Supplicant.

Funnily enough, the Cabal Patriarch isn't actually a Cleric, but he might be a flavorful hit for your deck enough that you might want to run him. He's a beefy 5/5 that you could accelerate out early with your rituals.

Blackmail is the one noncreature Cabal-themed card I could think of that's super useful. Turn one hand disruption is always a powerful opening.

Hopefully this helps! Happy brewing!

rob_shifflett: Thank you for the suggestion and the vote! I think Attrition is to good to remove, but Deathmark Prelate seem really good. I'll have to try and make room for it!

mehtagame: I also found mana problems after about a dozen games yesterday. They deck was crazy powerful, if I had enough mana to get going. Also, your commander is a amazing g way to spend your leftover mana!

Enral: Your deck looks super solid. I will give it another look today so I can leave you some suggestions!

Deathstroke2791: That deck look hilarious man! Does your meta let you play it?

I could see an argument for Chromatic Lantern because of Havengul Lich's ability. You need to be able to cast the creature you target (applies to opponent's graveyards too).

Instead of Attrition or Deathmark Prelate, I'd suggest Stronghold Assassin for Zombie-flavour reasons.

Playtesting your deck I found the land count to be a bit too low, especially for your curve/average CMC. Try going up to 38? I'd also try to limit the number of non-basics, only leaving in the essentials.

I would swap out Attrition for Deathmark Prelate. It is easier to recur and is not color exclusionary. Phyrexian Delver is a great include, as is Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

cool deck list but if you are using a zombie theme maybe put in Deathmark Prelate or you could go for a outlast method by pulling out the combat clerics and put in Battlefield Medic and/or Ancestor's Prophet and for flavor have Akroma, Angel of Wrath to win

I'd recommend Attrition and Gravecrawler for this. Attrition can replace the Deathmark Prelate and Gravecrawler is just fantastic fodder for any sac shenanigans you have going on. Lord of the Undead may also be worth tossing in here and Fleshbag Marauder would be worth it if you can reliably bounce him in and out of the graveyard. I really like Cairn Wanderer in here, gonna have to consider him for my mono-black zombies.

As far as land goes, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Cabal Coffers are amazing, but not cheap. Black Market is also kind of fun.
