it's no problem. if ever you would include it in the future, Oversold Cemetery is another card that can turn online fast with Hermit Druid and other redundant type of cards with mass self mill.

OUT: Sangromancer - Eldrazi Monument - Falkenrath Noble - Dark Prophecy - Oversold Cemetery

IN: Knight of the Ebon Legion - Pulse Tracker - Shadow Alley Denizen - Underworld Breach - New Blood

I have to test Underworld Breach more. After a boardwipe it could server better than Oversold Cemetery. Often the Cemetery dont do anything with that much graveyard hate people bring these days... getting them all back in one turn sounds better. Dark Prophecy is nice when clamp is out, otherwise its unreliable.

i put New Blood back in just for the flavor and fun. Its not the best card but its extremely unique and can only be played in a Vamp tribal. So why not.

Oversold Cemetery might prove rather useful, doing damage for pulling a useful creature back to your hand from your graveyard to either reuse or recycle. Palace Siege offers a similar effect.

Love the name, by the way...

SatisfactionDay Those are all great additions! I'd completely forgotten about Oversold Cemetery! I'm definitely going to consider all of them!

MahBoi100 thank you! I completely didn't see this and it is definitely going in the deck. There are a few other cards I plan on adding, Herald's Horn, Phyrexian Arena, Oversold Cemetery and Cover of Darkness. Also Cryptic Gateway.

I'll definitely be checking your list out as well

Coward_Token: The real issue with Praetor's Grasping for a wincon (no matter how hilarious) is that I have very few ways to make non-black mana here, honestly. If I just need something GONE, though, Bitter Ordeal fills that niche.

ShutUpMokuba: Honestly, Oversold Cemetery is rarely as good as it looks in this kind of deck. I only run 25 creatures, so there's rarely a huge number of creatures hanging out in my GY... and I have a lot of to-battlefield reanimation already. Dawn of the Dead is interesting, especially since I can sacrifice stuff to put it back in GY... but honestly, it's just slow: 5 mana, and only has an effect on the next upkeep.

Awaken the Erstwhile has been a little hit or miss recently, so it MIGHT get the axe... but Genesis Chamber is an incredibly strong source of tokens, and a combo piece too ;) I'd never leave home without it.

Wouldn't bitter ordeal already fill that slot?


Oversold Cemetery seems cool. But with all the cheap reanimation like reanimate, animate dead and what not, it seems a bit inferior despite the value it can accrue long term. His deck storms off at times through all the card draw, rituals and ramp. Awaken the Erstwhile is an absolute powerhouse! Draw a bunch of cards through token fodder, cast awaken stripping everyone of their hands, then using yawg's ability to place counters on all the zombies, draw a bunch of cards and proliferate to kill all/most of the zombies.

Genesis Chamber is a combo piece and usually provides him with more value.
