Grimgrin, Corpse-Born Discussion
1 day ago
Here's the ones I had a lot of fun with. I changed each of these into tricolor decks, so it's the dual color paired with the tricolor it corresponds with. I think any of the 20 are pretty fun and unique in their own way.

Thanks for the suggestions. Metallic Mimic has been sitting in my awful wizards deck for months now, I never thought of it going in here, but it really helps. Especially with the majority of the creature cards being wizards, same goes for Vindictive Lich , so thank you!
Now that I think about it, Yahenni, Undying Partisan really is a cheaper, and to some extent, better version of Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , so that definitely got put in. I would be hesitant to put in Falkenrath Aristocrat due to my CMC being quite high already (I know Razaketh, the Foulblooded has a high CMC, but he tutors and I cracked him while opening a pack so I feel obligated to use him! Shhhh!) And I would love to put Yawgmoth, Thran Physician but for now I'll leave him out, though I will probably always contemplate it!
Thanks again for the suggestions, I really appreciate the feedback, and I definitely up-voted your Marchesa deck!

Paradox Engine is an interesting idea as it does give redundancy for Phyrexian Altar, the piece with the least amount of backups. I think to take enough advantage of this, I'd include more fast mana ( Mox Diamond plays well with Crucible of Worlds, Chrome Mox 's card disadvantage is mitigated a bit because we operate well without many cards).
Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Undead Augur are my adds from Modern Horizons, with Cabal Therapist on my to-test list. I'm cutting Midnight Reaper and keeping Grim Haruspex for now (the zombie type is nice on the Reaper but no life loss on the Haruspex is probably worth more to me).
I'm sure the change to Gisa and Geralf will have some advantages. Counterspells alone will help you not lose and I know zombies have some combo potential in Dimir with
. I can't follow you there though; I have too much fondness for Liliana and love challenging myself to make the best mono-coloured decks.
I'll follow that decklist on TappedOut and put in my two cents though, if you like.

Hey there! I like how you’re running Gisa and Geralf as your commander. Two zombies I think will work well for you are Graveborn Muse and Forgotten Creation . My zombie deck runs both of the cards I suggested to you but I run Grimgrin, Corpse-Born as the commander. If you have any suggestions for me I’m all ears. I tend not to lean too token-focused just any and all zombies.

After a few weeks of heavy testing, I've come to the conclusion that the Soul Diviner is just not a good fit for the deck. I'm looking for an active replacement. I'm considering bringing back Grimgrin, Corpse-Born but I hesitate because I don't want this to become yet another copy of the typical zombie tribal builds. I've also come to the realization that Bolas's Citadel does some serious work with Varina at the helm.

Thanks for the insight, I will definetely consider adding Flayer of the Hatebound . However, he is single card, and I fear that will not be consistent enough. Sac outlet-wise I have Viscera Seer , Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , God-Eternal Bontu , Phyrexian Tower and even Bolas's Citadel , I feel like that is plenty. Also, I dont want to make aristocrat-style deck, that is why I did not put Judith, the Scourge Diva and fling sac outlets.
If you believe some cards do not belong, feel free to tell me.
