Creature — Zombie Wizard
: You may cast target creature from a graveyard this turn. When you cast that card this turn, Havengul Lich gains all activated abilities of that card until end of turn.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel - life drain/gain. Bounce him a few times for maximum benefit
Havengul Lich - reanimation source. Has underperformed in games for me. Borderline
Headless Rider - tokens
Midnight Reaper - card draw
Murderous Rider - spot removal if needed. Versatile
Noxious Ghoul - one-sided board wipe potential
Plague Belcher - potential sac outlet, death trigger payoff
Relentless Dead - recurrence, reanimate
Shepherd of Rot - life drain. ALL players. Don't kill yourself...
Sidisi, Undead Vizier - tutor, sac outlet and big body
Undead Augur - card draw
Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver - alternate commander. Tokens and sac outlet
Zombie Master - reanimation, swampwalk. Nice when Urborg is on the field!!

If the front-face of a modal DFC is a creature and the back face is a non-land, Havengul Lich will allow you to cast either side (lands are "played", not "cast", so you won't be able to play the land face this way). If a rule or effect allows you to cast something, you can cast either side of a modal DFC if it satisfies whatever restrictions the effect put in place. The "target creature card" in the text of the Lich's ability only defines what kind of card you're allowed to choose as a target for the ability, not what kind of spell you're allowed to cast.

Havengul Lich says I can cast target creature card in a graveyard. It doesn't say thing else limiting that casting. So I assume yes, but I want to be sure.
Adventure and MDFC for reference.

desmondwrite: I actually have to disagree with you about Fell Stinger. It does it all! It's a deathtoucher, it sacrifices a creature, it draws, and it's very recurrable in this deck. For three mana, it puts in a ton of work.
I think I want to keep Noosegraf Mob for now, because in my games I've found that I don't have as many token producers as I'd like. However, I've been very on the fence about Sun Titan. I have been holding on to it because it can return lands so I can hit high notes like Rise of the Dark Realms, but mostly I haven't been that impressed with its performance. I'm swapping it with Havengul Lich.
Thanks for your advice!

desmondwrite: Great suggestions! I have a Havengul Lich in my Inalla deck and have been thinking about moving it over, and you've convinced me. I don't play the Inalla deck much anyway, and it would be better here. And I have a Corpse Harvester lying around! It's a little mana intensive but it's so good.
Any recommendations as far as what I could cut for them?

The problem with Varina, Lich Queen is that there are too many good options. I run Corpse Harvester for land fetching and tutoring. And Havengul Lich is great value because you don't even need to cast the zombie from your graveyard to get its abilities.

Silent Lich Lord
Creature - Zombie Wizard
Whenever Silent Lich Lord deals damage or is dealt damage, it gains indestructible until of turn.
No ears alive have heard it speak, and only the insane have seen it move.
Random trivia: Every card with Lich Lord in the name is black and either blue, green, or both. Until 2017, every card with just Lich, without the Lord, either was heavily mono-black or an artifact. There were two exceptions. Any guesses?
So until 2017, I figured liches and lich lords were different. Liches went deeper into death magic, and lich lords sought out more magical secrets. But now we have Underrealm Lich, Tomebound Lich, Varina, Lich Queen, and Storrev, Devkarin Lich all smashing my theory into pieces.
Anyway, create a Elf card.
