I did something like that with Training Grounds. You're missing so many good cards... like Training Grounds. I don't see a date but Valki, God of Lies  Flip is better than Tidehollow Sculler. Then, there's alsways Pack Rat. Draw 2 from Nicol Bolas, BB to make rats.

And with Zirda and/or Training Ground... Lavaclaw Reaches is one of those sneaky manlands that can get huge.

The deck looks good but seems somewhat slow. Some suggestions IMO would be:

Some considerations:

  • Corpse Knight over Wayward Servant to include Zulaport Cutthroat for ETB triggers.

  • Unearth over Blasting Station if you already swapped out some land for Geralf's Messenger. These two, at the very least, makes the opponent lose 8 life; more with Cutthroat and Knight on the field. Reanimating other creatures is also another viable strategy to get out of a tight situation.

  • Ghoulish Procession over Jadar since it's a nonlegendary permanent that can potentially make more zombies to fuel an aristocrats strategy and trigger ETB and death triggers.

For sideboard:

Definitely a good suggestion! I've not seen that card before, it might work out better than Tidehollow Sculler.

Awesome idea, Glittering Wish may be better than the Tidehollow Sculler so definitely worth experimenting. Thank you

lagotripha Thank you for commenting. Tidehollow Sculler is one of my favorite cards but I did not run it here for a number of reasons. I don't want to run more than 8 flickerable creatures, so basically I'll be comparing it against Burglar Rat .

  1. The rebound from Ephemerate is usually wasted with Sculler, which means it only exiles 1 card permanently and 1 card until it dies, compared with rats discarding 3. Also, if we have a sculler on the field and topdeck ephemerate, we can't really do anything either.

  2. Usually the sculler will end up dying, making the combo only a 2 for 1 (instead of a 2 for 3), either because the opponent has nothing else to spend their removal on or because it was sacrificed to our own Smallpox (having rats/grief with a smallpox is much less awkward since we don't care as much if they die).

  3. There are only 8 pieces of targeted hand disruption (inquisition + grief) here for a reason because drawing into that kind of spell late game is much worse than a normal discard effect since opponents will frequently hold lands. By turn 3, which is when you can cast sculler+ephemerate, you usually want to be just powering out as much discard as possible instead of targeted discard.

  4. Rats gets around leyline

  5. Regarding the sideboard slots, I would rather run more hate cards.

I hope this answered your question.

If you are running ephemirate in B/W discard without Tidehollow Sculler , why? It is at least competing for sideboard slots.

You can check out my binder, but it has a few good things, inlcuding a foil Grief , Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer , and foil Esper Sentinel .

Two other random things are a foil TSR Tidehollow Sculler and a foil Wheel and Deal .

I'm looking to sell the cards, but if anyone has any good modern trades I'm down to check them out.

I feel like leaning far harder into 1 and 2 drops would make the pyre/Vial/Crawler setup a lot stronger. Just 'fetch a zombie from your deck each turn' is pretty strong.

Undead Augur Draws cards, likes sacrifice, on type&theme, cmc right for gravecrawler.

Cryptbreaker ditto, but also a 1 drop.

Worth considering;

Black Cat / Miasmic Mummy / Rotting Rats Forces a discard and sets up for a 'go to 3 mana' turn. Amazing for getting grindy.

Dreadhorde Arcanist strongest zombie and recurring thoughtsieze is good- plays into a spells matter theme with Unearth

Corpse Knight / Wayward Servant for gravecrawler drain if the deck shifts towards W/B, with vial/pyre easing the splash.

Tidehollow Sculler Hand disruption is goood
