Rooftop Storm


You may pay rather than pay the mana cost for Zombie creature spells you cast.

Renzisherekiddo I used to have Gravecrawler, Rooftop Storm, and Phyrexian Altar/Ashnod's Altar. Like you said I'm not a fan of infinite combos anymore

Running Rooftop Storm and Gravecrawler almost demands that you run Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. Open the Graves is a strictly better alternative to anything that would create decaying zombies on death triggers.

Zombies are honestly one of my favorite tribes.

If it's not too much power for your playgroup, consider a decent sac outlet and Gravecrawler. It can add very nice synergies when you cast it, including infinite combos with the precon included Rooftop Storm, Diregraf Colossus, and Diregraf Captain. All around a great Zombie card for death triggers, Zombie cast triggers etc.

I honestly wouldn't focus too much on the mill aspect. Instead, focus on creatures, tokens and protection for those things. Cheap counterspells go a long way. With things like Endless Ranks of the Dead and Diregraf Colossus, creating bodies is a breeze usually. Though this is just stuff from the precon. The precon by itself is a great starting point. Cleaver Skaab can create an extra Diregraf Captain or Diregraf Colossus which nets value, threat and board presence in one move. Graf Harvest is an amazing Zombie card to keep opponents wary of you. DeathBaron solidifies an offensive position for you. A nice little combo from the precon to consider is Cleaver Skaab + Gisa and Geralf . This let's you make cheeky tokens of the same non-token Zombie multiple times. Great use on Colossus, Deathbaron, Cemetery Reaper, Captain or other important zombies. Even better on Fleshbag Marauder.

I think that's all I got right now. I have the precon and a mono black Zombie deck on my profile if you want to check them out. The precon will soon be an upgraded version.

Thnx for the tidbits! I used to have diregraf colosus/god-eterna oketra in the deck for those reasons but after so many months of pruning they got weeded out for some reason or another and i forgot or havent figured out a way to put them back in.

I also used to have Liliana in for the mentioned reason too as her+Rooftop Storm+sac outlet=another inf etb/death/cast combo but i found i didnt have enough sac outlets in the deck. Out of laziness and fatigue from trying to figure out cuts i just ended up puting all my sac synergies into my Grixis zombie deck and try to focus this one on being more a swarm+lifegain deck.

Idk if its the right or effective approach, its just what i ended up doing out of mental fatigue.

I love zombie decks! It’s one of my favorite themes but I stayed mono-black with mine. But I know there are good black/blue zombie cards like one that will give all zombie tokens Hexproof I believe or another that gives them flying. Just use an Advanced Search on to find them. When it comes to non-mono black, I just don’t prefer the “mill” theme that comes with blue; I love the reanimated swarm theme black focuses on. Anyways, here is the "zombie" I know:

For added consistency with Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver, you could consider Diregraf Colossus and Headless Rider. I know they don’t work nicely with the Death Tyrant + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver combo but here is how all 3 of them are really nice:

As a Rooftop Storm backup, you may want to consider Liliana, Untouched By Death (-3 ability). Her with Shambling Ghast (Search the Body) plus a sac outlet; or, Her with Phyrexian Altar and any 1 drop zombie make a 1 turn infinite cycle fueling any ETB and death triggers. Liliana, Untouched By Death's -3 ability effectively turns any 1 drop zombie like Shambling Ghast, Carrion Feeder, Champion of the Perished, and Cryptbreaker -into- Gravecrawlers for 1 turn. Basically, she'll increase your consistency getting your combos rolling.

  • Champion of the Perished is really good when your constantly making zombies ETB.
  • Consider using Blasting Station as a sac outlet too. For example, any time you sac with the station during a combo, the combo will also do 1-dmg per cycle. And, if the combo is making zombies, the station will untap too.
  • Black Market can also get out of hand when doing sac combos. It can really help when the combo is not infinite. It also makes people think harder about the cost of boardwiping.

Anyways cool seeing the Death Tyrant + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver combo; I hadn’t seen that one yet!

@Sgt_Bob_Ross I am glad to hear you are enjoying the deck as much as I am :) Mana Vault is there more for that moment when I really need that extra mana maybe to cast a Phyrexian Altar, Blasting Station, or that last little bit of colorless to cast my Rooftop Storm. Situations like that where I am pretty sure my combo will go off and I don't care about the secondary clause of it having to be payed for on upkeep. I wouldnt have initially had it in the deck due to price and my other copies already having homes but I was lucky enough to have a few good pulls on double masters draft nights and got some trading in. Hope you can use this as a template for some ideas you may not have had, and I love Demon's Horn that is some spicy tech maybe add a Prism Ring or Tablet of the Guilds good luck in your future duels :)

You already have Rooftop Storm if you add Acererak the Archlich you’ll have an infinite wincon combo.

Acererak the Archlich gives an infinite wincon along with Rooftop Storm. I don’t generally like infinite combos, but there’s something cool about infinitely going through a dungeon until you ping everyone to death. Eaten Alive is great removal both flavorwise and as a sacrifice outlet.
