Plague Belcher

Creature — Zombie Beast


When Plague Belcher enters the battlefield, put two -1/-1 counters on target creature you control.

Whenever another Zombie you control dies, each opponent loses 1 life.

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!!

I like Plague Belcher at wordt it‘s a 3/2 with a relevant death-trigger which diesn‘t care if it‘s a token or not. Best case, you put the counters on a token, who dies and triggers the belcher

Master of Death is an interesting one and I may give it a try in the deck. Plague Belcher was in and never felt all that useful. It sort of felt like a hindrance with the 2 -1/-1 counters it gives. I may rework it back in as it does have combo potential. We will see as I play the deck more. Thanks for the suggestions!

Any thoughts on Master of Death or Plague Belcher?

StoryArcher on Does Headless Rider + Damnation …

8 months ago

I'm working on a Zombie deck that takes advantage of Damnation, among other things. If I have Headless Rider and let's say two other non-token Zombies in play and I cast Damnation, will that result in three 2/2 Zombie tokens?

To take the interaction further, let's say that the three zombies that I have in play are Headless Rider, Undead Augur and Plague Belcher. Would it be correct to say that, when Damnation is cast and resolves, I will have 3x 2/2/ Zombie tokens, draw 3 cards, lose 3 life and have my opponent lose 3 life?

Hello, I own a Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver precon, with some upgrades like Gravecrawler , Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Plague Belcher, Bastion of Remembrance and Noxious Ghoul.

I'm prob looking to make it mostly a combo deck but I'm not sure.

I normally play with another 3 friends that play Sigarda, Host of Herons that I can't deal with except with Noxious Ghoul, a full ramp/eldrazy enourmous monsters and extra turns and the 3rd one just bought the new spirit precon that just came out.

I really struggle being competitive with the first 2 players and I think that only by going for game winning combos I can deal with them.

Looking for new ideas or cards to exchange on my deck.

Thx u all

The deck tries to be fast. More manas (and stones), creatures and draw. Limited counter spells and control.

it has the nice combos for infinite life loss, any of the following combination, depending on what’s on your board Ashnod's Altar + Diregraf Captain + Gravecrawler or alternatively, you can use Phyrexian Altar Diregraf Captain + Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar

You can adapt this combo with other cards than the Diregraf Captain. For example with:

Champion of the Perished or Carrion Feeder for an infinite strength creature

Vengeful Dead or Plague Belcher for infinite life loss

Tormod, the Desecrator or Headless Rider for infinite zombie tokens

If you don’t have the Gravecrawler on the board you may run these combos with nice zombies having LTB or ETB capacities but then you need a card with the sacrifice capacity like Carrion Feeder and a card to play it back from your graveyard such as Havengul Lich or Gisa and Geralf. Let’s take the Gray Merchant of Asphodel for example:

Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Ashnod's Altar + Havengul Lich + Rooftop Storm for infinite life loss, infinite life gain. you can either use Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar depending on what's on your board.

Enchantments like Dictate of Erebos or Necroduality or The Meathook Massacre just make things worst.

Finally, I thought it could be nice to give some additional features to our Zombies such as flying with Geralf, Visionary Stitcher or Eldrazi Monument
