Restless Dead Discussion

maxmcnugget on I am become death, destroyer of decks

I am confused about some card choices: Ghostly Touch , Mortus Strider , Restless Dead , and the unblockable creatures like classic: Phantom Warrior . Are the unblockable creatures here so Lazav can become unblockable? Or for cipher/Trepanation Blade/Sword of B&M? Thanks.

If you want to use Rimebound Dead just remove Restless Dead and swap your swamps for snow covered swamps, they do the same thing as swamps, but count as snow covered so they work for regenerating Rimebound Dead. This will make your deck better since they're half the cost of Restless dead

Thanks for your advice Austin_Smith_of_Cards, I'm going to try out these changes:

4x Drowned -> 4x Restless Dead

1x Bone Picker -> 1x Skeletal Wurm

1x Gorgon Flail -> 1x Skeletal Wurm

1x Island -> 1x Portent

Skeletal Vampire looks fun and cheap, I might spring for one.

I thought the same thing when I pulled Portent out of my jank box, had never seen this card before, but it seems like a pretty solid stand-in for Ponder. I've found a couple more (total of 3), but not sure what else to cut if anything.

If you want to go with more of the skeleton theme, I highly suggest including Restless Dead over Drowned since the latter is a Zombie and not a Skeleton.

Portent seems like an interesting take on a Ponder variant that would be useful for early topdeck manipulation; crucial for control.

Your ability to close out games seems kind of narrow, with Bone Picker as your only genuine wincon. I would add a couple fatties like the Skeletal Wurms, or if you want to acquire other cards, Skeletal Vampire and Champion of Stray Souls seem cool.

If you're looking for cut options, Gorgon Flail doesn't really make sense in this list, and you could probably go down to 23 lands.

Happy brewing!

NobleGhost117 i also noticed that Restless Dead seemed out of place lol.(i mean its a zombie and all buuut you know lol) Relentless Dead is a much better choice imo.

I like it!

Although i do have one question. You have Restless Dead in your deck, which is a card from Mirage. Did you mean Relentless Dead?
