Thanks Balaam__!! You’re right about Relentless Dead being a good fit for this build. It would be really sweet to use it to sneak a Skaab Ruinator onto the battlefield (without worrying about blue mana and its additional casting cost). I’m not sure what to cut for it though!

Looks fantastic. No room for Relentless Dead? I suppose he isn’t necessary with all the other means of recursion, but it seems tailor made for a build like this one.

If you actually want to go the recursion route i suggest you play 4x Gravecrawler 4x Carrion Feeder and depending on your money i would cut ayara aswell as the citadel and play atleast 4 Blood Artist maybe also 2 Zulaport Cutthroat. Some nice cards that synergize well with the whole zombie theme would be Geralf's Messenger and Relentless Dead and also Mausoleum Secrets for searching your library for that one creature you might did not draw.

Ive made a Decklist for you you could check that out. Mono black copy

They would have a very good home here. I have to still give this a full day of balance testing. I will try throwing in a set of two or three Relentless Dead and see how they effect the deck. I know there are going to be hands where certain things feel bad in hand, so Relentless will get the first go in through while balancing.

Thanks for the +1 and kind words.

Excellent job with this. Really effective build. I’d usually suggest at least a few copies of Relentless Dead in a deck like this one, but I think what you have functions well enough without them. Maybe sideboard them in or something, idk. +1

Zombie decks work best with some type of recursion. Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead are staples of the tribe for good reason.

Balaam__ on The Scarab God Zombies

If I were to make a recommendation, I’d drop the The Scarab God down to 2, and increase Gravecrawler and/or Relentless Dead up to 4 copies. You’re going to want the cheaper and recursive centric zombies early on, so ideally you’ll have full play sets.
