Endless Ranks of the Dead


At the beginning of your upkeep, put X 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens onto the battlefield, where X is half the number of Zombies you control, rounded down.

TypicalTimmy on Fervent Charger

I would only ask to make one extremely minor difference.

Fervent Charger

Creature - Human Warrior


Exert - You may exert Fervent Charger as it attacks. If you do, attacking creatures you control get +2/+2 until end of turn.


The reason I'd say to add on the Exert ability is because without it, that is an insanely powerful anthem effect. For balance purposes, I think Exert brings it down into the Rare slot.

Otherwise I really enjoy this. I never heard of Fervent Charge before. This makes me really want to make a Mardu Enchantment deck with other cards such as Bad Moon , True Conviction and Fervor . I could make it Goblin / Zombie tribal, giving me access to a card I've been dying to use for a long time; Dralnu's Crusade . This, with Endless Ranks of the Dead and Necromancer's Covenant is just stupid. Plus there is Gleam of Battle , Mardu Ascendancy , Campaign of Vengeance , Blood Reckoning , and even Goblinslide .

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Consider this a good thing; Your idea got me pumped for a new deck! :D Thank you!!

Optimator thanks for reminding me of him! I was totally going to include him in here but somehow forgot. Still haven't pulled him yet, but I'm sure it won't be hard to get a copy. As for Endless Ranks of the Dead I was keeping it on the list mostly as a sort of placeholder until I could pick up a better token generator like Ogre Slumlord or Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder . Even though I have a fair amount of zombies to work with Ranks, it still won't be as efficient in this setup as either of those other two, so I definitely agree with you there.

Syr Konrad, the Grim might be a flavorful and powerful addition. I'd take out Endless Ranks of the Dead --it's only good in Ghoulcaller Gisa decks and other explicitly go-wide zombie strategies. Kind of a trap card.

Endless Ranks of the Dead just as an idea.

epartica on Black is still the best

7H30F7 Thanks for all the help and suggestions it has been an eye opener in what direction I should take this deck. Before I say anything I want to let you know that I made Black is Best Take Two with the cards I can't afford let me know what you think! That deck would basically be my end goal! Now, the deck here will be the cards I currently own and will be trying to work with. I agree with Carrion Feeder as a sack outlet along with being a zombie, which I would want to keep Endless Ranks of the Dead and Grave Pact . Altar's Reap I have some and would want those again. Profane Command would be god tear in this deck because it would on be 5 mana to get everything back so great call on that.

I don't see the point of Fatal Push because I would need something to die on their turn for it to really work. Liliana's Triumph would be better than Diabolic Edict however I think I would only run that if i got more Liliana's to really take advantage of that card. Liliana, the Last Hope I would love but it's just out of price range. I figure I can either get 2 Liliana, the Last Hope or 4 Thoughtseize and 4 Inquisition of Kozilek .

Blood for Bones over Unearth makes this deck a lot fast but I'll be loosing a sack outlet, still it's a lot faster. I think the last thing i'll get for this deck is lands because i really don't want to spend money on it.

7H30F7 I appreciate the suggestions! However, this is indeed a budget deck to an extent. I would like to spend at most 15 dollars on a card but for the moment I would only really be willing to spend 5 because that will end up being 20. Originally I ran a bunch of Culling the Weak and Dark Ritual , which was how I was able to cast Army of the Damned in tell so one told me that not Modern legal. So, I love the idea of Undead Augur because that is card draw and triggers for Endless Ranks of the Dead . Grave Pact is kind of my staple of this deck and the hole reason for making it. So i'd like to make this more control I guess? What do you mean by tempo?

I would recommend Liliana, the Last Hope due to her emblem being more consistent than Endless Ranks of the Dead . I didn't see Entomb but it looks to fit the deck...I would finally mention Aid the Fallen as having a bit more utility than some standard return to hand cards.

Chaotic_Justice on Muldrotha Zombies Horde

Muldrotha is one of my favorites. I think some auto-inlcudes for a zombie tribal would have to be Ghoulcaller Gisa , Endless Ranks of the Dead , Overseer of the Damned and Black Market . I've rebuilt my muldrotha deck three times, and finally found a build I absolutely love. It's a sac-for-effect them but uses token generators to build an army of zombies and saprolings that can be used as sacrifices for fun stuff. If you're interested, check it out.
