Some thoughts:

  • I don’t see how this deck ever practically mills an opponent before putting them to zero life beforehand anyway. Lich Lord of Unx will always kill before completing a mill, and Undead Alchemist is super-easy to play around (and buys your opponent extra turns for free most of the time, as it takes longer to mill than to put then to zero life).

  • Having no 1-or-2 mana cards makes this deck incredibly slow. Not being able to do anything in the first 2 turns of the game will likely put you too far behind to win many games.

  • Similarly, modern decks without ramp find it hard to justify running more than 3-4 cards at cmc4, and often run nothing above this. You have 23 cards, roughly 40% of your deck, costing 4-or-more mana. That’s going to lead to your hands being incredibly slow & clumsy, and will oftentimes mean a game is finished before you’ve got to cast the majority of cards in your hand. Seriously look to lower the curve.

  • having lots of 2-ofs and 1-ofs in the deck is going to lead to it being super inconsistent. I’d suggest running more playsets of the cards that are important to play for the deck.

Thanks Profet93!! That makes two of us! O_o lol

Hey TypicalTimmy, challenge accepted! Willy hungers and needs more willing victims. Get over here!

You bring up good points about counterspells and tutors. With this deck I tried to do something different than my previous combo-centric builds. The older version of this deck is linked in the description above and I run a lot more draw/tutors and less actual zombies. Also check out my K’rrik Doomsday deck for a Mono-Black deck that goes all-or-nothing with combos.

With this deck I want to be able to win even if my combos or Willy are neutralized somehow. So I have numerous back-up strategies depending on my opening hand. It’s like a puzzle, and it takes practice to know which hand to keep and what to tutor for. I am still getting the hang of it.

Since Willy generates tokens when my zombies die and needs zombies as fodder for his sac-to-draw ability, I went for a secondary token theme. Plus it feels more thematic to me. I am usually one to go with pure efficiency over theme, but in this case I tried to balance efficiency and theme to retain the feeling of a straightforward Zombie swarm deck. So the result is a deck that is very unpredictable for the opponent. It’s hard to know what I’m planning and I can pull a combo win from out of nowhere.

Your suggestions of Lich Lord of Unx, The Scarab God, and Greed are good, but each is a little expensive mana-wise. The Lich Lord is good when I can generate lots of mana or have an infinite mana combo, otherwise it’s an expensive 1/1 token generator. I’m not counting on always finding an infinite mana combo. Scarab God is slow since it’s ability doesn’t kick in until the upkeep after it’s played, and in my experience it gets slapped with removal the second it comes down. Greed is a less efficient Necropotence, I would rather run something like Rhystic Study. Regardless, thanks for the suggestions!

On that note, What about The Scarab God for deck fixing, and Lich Lord of Unx for death and milling, as you can produce infinite mana?

Or, with infinite mana, Greed is highly viable. Then you play your library.

I always enjoyed the synergy between Lich Lord of Unx and Undead Alchemist ! Some other cards you may find really play into the entwining of mill and life-loss include Mindcrank , Duskmantle Guildmage and Bloodchief Ascension .

I like it, but I think this deck could be so much more and here are a few things I think I would try and fit in.

I also have this Commander as well and have various different things from this person.

Grave Titan - Makes an army of zombies and is a 6/6 Deathtouch... yea... great stuff.

Lich Lord of Unx - has a great second ability and let's you poop in more zombies!

Anointed Procession - Because... you are making tons of tokens and this makes even more!

Necromancer's Covenant - Great for getting rid of someone's graveyard to make more zombie tokens and they all get lifelink. Sweetttttt!!

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - Why is he not in this list... this is the maczombie of Innistrad county!

Hey, interesting concept, but your deck is kind of all over the place. All the combos are with Conspiracy, but Arcane Adaptation which is in the sideboard is the same effect, but a better card because less CMC and easier casting cost. I think you want Adaptation as a backup Conspiracy effect.

The game plan is to get an Adaptation effect to make all your creatures Zombies. Consider expanding on the current Zombie theme of The Scarab God, Door of Destinies, Lich Lord of Unx, Undead Alchemist, Gleaming Overseer, Liliana, Death's Majesty and Rooftop Storm? More Zombies that way you can have a more functioning deck without an Adaption effect. Play more Zombies and keep some good nonZombie creatures who then become better with an Adaption effect. Take more advantage of Doubling Season by expanding on the Zombie token theme?

Zombies to consider adding:

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

ShutUpMokuba on Help with Scarab God deck

It really depends on your meta and your budget. However for now i'll try to list some cards that i really like in that type of deck.. In the creature compartment i would suggest Diregraf Colossus, Undead Warchief, maybe Death Baron, Cryptbreaker, the obvious Gravecrawler, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Lich Lord of Unx. For card draw i would add Graveborn Muse or Midnight Reaper. Soulless One can be a good card if you are on a budget. Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is a great card too as he gets really big and destroys your opponents' creatures fast.Zombie Master is good on its own in a tribal deck but becomes great with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. More expensive cards are Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Ghoulcaller Gisa; if i had to pick i would choose the first. Also Grave Titan can get you a lot of tokens.

Enchantments: Grave Pact for removal, Phyrexian Arena/Kindred Discovery/Rhystic Study and the great and cheap Monastery Siege for card draw, Black Market for ramp, Rooftop Storm enables a lot of Gravecrawler combos, Paradox Haze doubles your commander's effect while Training Grounds makes his second effect cheaper.

Artifacts: Phyrexian Altar for the gravecrawler combo, i love in this deck Bontu's Monument, Door of Destinies/Vanquisher's Banner/Coat of Arms because you are going for a tribal deck (and why not Herald's Horn. Illusionist's Bracers doubles the scarab's firs ability.

PW: Liliana, Untouched By Death does everything you want in a Scarab god deck.

Lands: Reliquary Tower, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Bojuka Bog to exile an opponent's graveyard. Unholy Grotto is fine here. More lands to to fix your mana base like Sunken Hollow would be nice.

If you are going for a mill version i would suggest other cards like Dreamborn Muse, Mindcrank and so on..

The problem with your deck in my opinion is that even if you play cards with some synergy because of the zombie tribal element and some way to double your commander's drain ability there are a lot of cards that do not enough for you here. Remember that playing a deck that is a constant menace to your opponents gets you a big target on your head. To be more specific with my suggestions i need to know your budget, your meta and the path you want to take with this deck. Also there are too little cards in the removal compartment, in the draw compartment and in the mana base fixing compartment.
