Gravecrawler

Creature — Zombie

Gravecrawler can't block.

You may cast Gravecrawler from your graveyard as long as you control a Zombie.

Cool budget list, Torgaar is a neat commander and I hadn't seen him built before. I gotta rec some of my favorite black 'goobers' Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, and Nether Traitor, I think these are some of the best repeatable sac fodder you can get and not too expensive. Also seems like Bloodletter of Aclazotz could be a good add because Torgaar's ability results in life loss and would gib players at full or over 40 life, but I guess this sees pioneer play so it's a bit more $. Sadistic Hypnotist is also one of my favorite cards in mono b sac and like a $.50 card.

The idea of the deck looks good, but it is torn between landfall and zombies, I would recommend going for either one, but maybe not both. For zombies I cannot help you, I barely play with them, but if you want, there is a fun combo using Putrid Goblin and Thran Vigil, then killing the goblin. This will make it come back without the -1/-1 counter from persist, so if you have a sac outlet, you have basically infinite etb effects (and any other bonus the sac outlet gets you). You could also use some Deadly Dispute, drawing you cards and getting the Gravecrawler on the graveyard.

For landfall, get some fetchlands. They double the number of triggers.

Also, you might need some interaction. I do not think Pick Your Poison is enough, and getting some instant speed removal might be nice

Myzocom, Renewal of Decay

Legendary Creature - Fungus Shaman

You may cast creature spells and enchantment spells from your graveyard by paying life equal to their mana value in addition to their other casting costs.

Whenever you cast a spell from your graveyard, create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token. If the spell you cast is legendary, create three of these tokens instead.

3/3


Want to know why this guy is insanely broken and would never be printed as is? Ornithopter exists, as does Phyrexian Altar or any other sac outlets. Enjoy infinite mana with infinite tokens, which can cause infinite triggers from all of your creature and enchantment based ETB effects.

To make him "playable", it would have to limit to 1 cast per turn. That way you break super easy infinite loops. Of course you literally have the same loop anyway with Gravecrawler and a zombie online, so it doesn't really matter. The difference is, this is your Commander - meaning you always have access to him which makes it significantly harder to actually stop your unending gameplay.

Although, give it some time and I'm sure WOTC will print something like him just because of the nature of power creep.


Speaking of which, that's your next challenge. Let's see an Aura called "Power Creep".

10,000 bonus points if the card feels like it would belong in a new D&D set.

MistaMint on Tenacious D and the Sac of Destiny

DemonDragonJ I got what you were saying, no worries lol. And you were absolutely right in thinking that for asking the question as well. I had a hard time convincing myself to include Legion Vanguard saying that 1 generic mana was too expensive lol.

The last game I played with this I was extremely dismayed that the only sacrifice outlet I had out was corpse hauler and the squirrel. Neither are go to sacrifice outlets but more utility. So I added Corpse Blockade for another free source, and Gravecrawler for a third creature to make the sacrifice loop.

Saw Gisa, the Hellraiser, was interested, but she makes Zombie tokens. In my "strong maybe" pile. Still, any Skeleton presence is nice. Forsaken Miner has some good potential, again outclassed by Gravecrawler, but there's probably something that can shake out. Lord of the Forsaken, to make someone mill 3? Tinybones, the Pickpocket won't make a huge splash, but a 1/1 deathtouch with extra goodies can always find a home. Better set than average for Skeletons, but not explosive, and Zombies are still getting more stuff.

This reminds me quite a bit of one of my old builds. If I were to make any recommendations, it would be to pick one thing you want your deck to do and then double down on it while ignoring anything else.

For instance, there are some Mill effects here that don’t contribute to any sort of strategy. Something like Glimpse the Unthinkable has no place here. Additionally, your mana base is a bit on the light side, even with rituals (especially if you want to stand any chance at all of casting Army of the Darned). Shoot for 22-24 lands minimum.

Also, Demonic Tutor is restricted. There’s currently no format where 4x copies are legal.

The good thing is that Zombies offer a wide range of different deckbuilding directions to try; Aggro, combo, etc. Maybe look into a recursive loop featuring a sac engine, Gravecrawler and Diregraf Captain.

@Basshunter: Thanks for the input. There are a few things I feel the need to justify keeping in though.

The primary reason I have Paragon of Open Graves and Hero's Blade is so I can easily buff up Sarevok, causing his ability to drain extra life when it triggers. Death-Priest of Myrkul is somewhat expensive, but when he's out, I just got to pay a mana at the end of each turn to ensure I maintain a consistent fuel supply for Cultist (and a lot of my token generation is zombies anyway so... bigger dead dudes.). Similar vein, Palace Siege allows me to sac something to Cultist then play it again on the same turn, which goes real good with Gray Merchant of Asphodel for life gain and Doomed Dissenter for a free Zombie token, if I just don't sac Gravecrawler to play it again cause it cheap.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Squelching Leeches are mostly there to be big beefy bois if I need them, but yeah, of the suggestions you've made, I'd probably swap them for Black Market Connections and Priest of Forgotten Gods to net me some more card draw. Ophiomancer, Grave Titan and Phyrexian Altar are also on my radar.

Not a fan of Skullclamp, at least in this deck. I'd need either altars or Yahenni, Undying Partisan out to actually get consistent value out of it, otherwise I'd need to pay for another sac outlet.

SabbothDLOA on Killing with (Konrad)

Limited Combo: Fielded Syr Konrad, the Grim & Carrion Feeder then cycle Gravecrawler. Syr Konrad will do damage as Gravecrawler is summoned from the graveyard by it's own ability, and do damage again as Carrion Feeder selects Gravecrawler as a sacrifice to make Carrion Feeder stronger... you are only limited by the number of mana available, but you use to gain a +1/+1 and do 2 damage.
