bisounours on Wilhelt and his graveyard

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

KBK7101 Love the list! My first ever deck was a Grimgrin, Corpse-Born deck that I am now repurposing and tweaking to use Gisa and Geralf and better utilize the graveyard rather than focus on Grimgrin, Rooftop Storm and Gravecrawler antics.

How do you feel about Havengul Lich, Whip of Erebos, and Dictate of Erebos/Grave Pact?

Ah, thank you Dangerwillrobinson79 I didn’t think about Rooftop Storm being out during. I’ll have to look into grabbing those!

Cool deck! If you were to not cut out one of the 20 posted above, then I would 100% leave Acererak the Archlich in. It will infinitely venture into all dungeons with Rooftop Storm. Even if you don't want to combo win with two cards, it's a good option to have. Games have to end at some point lol

Recently added Acererak the Archlich. I hadn't even realized how it went infinite with Rooftop Storm. With the number of tutors in black this seems completely broken.

Any tips or advice appreciated.

Cool8t I am currently testing the Triskaidekaphile + Necropotence/Ad Nauseam combo over it. So far, I am happy with my choice.

My idea is that combo cards should also have some degree of utility beyond the combo itself. I have found myself many times holding Acererak the Archlich in hand with no real purpose. Besides its game-winning interaction with Rooftop Storm, the card itself is not that great of a deal. The dungeon system is way too slow for any optimized game and, if you want to hold on for the combo, you should refrain from completing Tomb of Annihilation, which is, however, the only way which Acererak can start creating some value by generating tokens. If rooftop storm is removed in any way, Acererak is borderline useless.

On the contrary, Triskaidekaphile is quite a value engine. It only costs 2 mana, it block early attackers such as Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, it gives you no maximum hand space in a deck with plenty of draw options, and it gives you an instant-speed draw as well, maybe when you're open for a counter but you don't go for it. It does not really matter that it is not a zombie, since you would not be able to sacrifice Acererak either with Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver. It combos beautifully with Necropotence and Ad Nauseam, which are both black staples on their own.

I've tested a few games already, for instance against an optimized Osgir, the Reconstructor (won 3-1), and against Winota, Joiner of Forces (won 2-1). Against the latter, both wins were with Triskaidekaphile's trigger. Thus, so far so good.

EVEN-ELITE, thanks for commenting! Necroduality is awesome and is definitely going in. It acts as an additional combo piece with Phyrexian Altar and Gravecrawler to generate infinite mana, without the need for Rooftop Storm. Lots of other synergies throughout the deck as well. Same goes for my 2.0 version of this deck.

Hey, good upgrades so far of the precon. Nice first attempt, but your deck doesn't have a Commander.

In the deck editor add the CMDR tag after Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver text.

1x Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver *CMDR*

When you save and return to your deck then Wilhelt will be the Commander with it's own category and card image.

Undead Augur is in the precon and cutting it is a mistake because it triggers to draw when it dies or any other Zombie including a Zombie token dies. Because it triggers when decayed Zombies die then it can be an excellent source of repeatable draw and it's a Zombie. Augur because it's only two mana is really good with Gisa and Geralf.

Nice foil Acererak the Archlich. Him along with Rooftop Storm is your best way of winning. A way to win with Wilhelt is Poppet Factory which is the backside of Poppet Stitcher  Flip. Factory removes decayed from Zombies letting you with a sac outlet repeatedly sac a decayed Zombie to create another one. Blasting Station or Altar of Dementia are win condition sac outlets with Factory.

If you want to infinite combo with Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm then you also need a sac outlet which Carrion Feeder being a Zombie is helpful. Blasting Station or Altar of Dementia are also win conditions with infinite Gravecrawler. If Rooftop Storm is how you want to win then consider some more protection: Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Lazotep Plating? With 11 Islands Mystic Sanctuary can be a helpful land.

Some changes to consider including some cards in the maybeboard:

Good luck with your deck.
