Tombstone Stairwell + Toxrill is pretty funny since you're allowed to make the slime ability resolve before the token-killing one

Thanks for the suggestions!

Tombstone Stairwell is one I would love to include but it’s just out of budget atm, this deck is primarily an upgrade to the precon with most expensive cards being cards I already own, atm I’m only really spending a bit on Cabal Coffers and should be able to get a cheapish reprint.

Poppet Stitcher  Flip - omg of course it does, don’t know how I missed that!

Dark Prophecy - I did consider this type of card but I am not so keen on the pinging effect per death triggers as it limits the card draw. Liliana does dig through the whole deck where as these have a clock to them, if that makes sense?

Question: Why no Poppet Stitcher  Flip? The back side of him goes infinite with your commander and a sac outlet. Also, Tombstone Stairwell creates a LOT of zombie death triggers.

Cut the basic lands. Add pretty much any non basic in their place. This will let you mill your entire library with Hermit Druid. If you have Muldrotha out you then cast Thassa's Oracle from your yard to win the game. Or, with 3 creatures on board, you can flash back Dread Return.

A copy of Phyrexian Delver will let you form a back up hulk pile around the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed Walking Ballista combo by using Protean Hulk to find Delver and Viscera Seer, using the delver to bring back Hulk, sacking hulk to seer, and finding Mikaeus and ballista.

As for non combo related additions, Nihil Spellbomb is pretty much a strictly better version of Soul-Guide Lantern in this deck where you can recur them. Your only playing 9 peices of ramp in the deck with a 6 mana commander that seems to be your main value engine. I would recommend adding more with cards like Millikin and Deranged Assistant.Also run Simic Signet and the talismans in your colors like Talisman of Curiosity. ETB effects like Wood Elves and Elvish Rejuvenator may also be good. Your in green so mana dorks are very good. Elves of Deep Shadow and Arbor Elf in particular. Expedition Map may be worth playing due to your ability to recur it and find any land you want to your hand.

At 6 mana you also have to be able to protect your commander once she hits the board to keep from getting blown out. You have a few cards that do this already but Voidmage Prodigy is a very versatile card that can sacrifice itself and be recurred. Swiftfoot Boots is also a good effect for this.

As for general cuts, Avenger of Zendikar, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Tombstone Stairwell don't help you get to your combos faster, don't slow down your opponenets, and arent involved in any combos I can see myself. While Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat can be used as replacements for Disciple of the Vault in your persit combo, they can't be included in the hulk pile and don't contribute to any of your other combos.

I don't think you need 3 edict creatures in the deck so maybe cut Merciless Executioner. If you find you need that density than keep it but its going to kind of be a dead card if you can cast one of the others from your graveyard already.

Chronic Flooding is a bit to slow IMO. I recommend Undercity Informer as both a sac outlet and a mill card, and/or Stitcher's Supplier.

I generally want my removal to actually get rid of the thing in EDH though it is worth noting you can use these effects to bounce your own commander to save it if need be. Aether Spellbomb and Seal of Removal are possible cuts but not neccessarilly. Recommend something like Shriekmaw or Executioner's Capsule if you do feel like removing it. Beast Within is also a good card, even if it doesn't synergize extremely well with your commander.

May I interest you in Tombstone Stairwell? It's quite the powerhouse in Wilhelt. Also, since you are already running Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm, you might consider the Rooftop Storm + Acererak the Archlich infinite combo.

I forgot to leave my list in the OP, oops! Lets see if I can remember the way to link it here, haha Old One Eye

The only real interesting tech might be Tombstone Stairwell, Horobi, Death's Wail, and mebe Quietus Spike.

Necrosis24 I really like the idea of Words of Waste! Pretty sneaky tech, and just the kind of shananigans I was hoping to hear about here! I dont think fat vanilla creatures like Fumiko are really worth the include though. It could be pretty great, but its sorta situational and requires a sizable field to be most effective. I looked at the other suggestions when I was first building my deck but I tried to keep the creature CMC 4 or less wherever possible. I did so to ensure that by the time karaz hits the board we will be guaranteed to have a few unsick attackers to immediately get some effect from them. The lower average costs also will allow us to take greater advantage of the card advantage that Karaz gives us, similar to how Edric works.

Frontier warmonger and Kardur were the only two of those that made the cut. Kardur because he 2 card combos with Conjurer's Closet :D

I do use EDHrec, but Im honestly not a big fan. All you get are the generic goodstuffs cards for the most part. You wont find sweet tech like words of waste or Horobi, Death's Wail on there!

Gleeock Haha, I see you like playing close to the edge! Although Endless Whispers is an old fav of mine, its far too unpredictably dangerous is most decks, haha The fact our opponents get to choose who gets the dead creatures just makes it super hard on us if we are winning and turns all boardwipes into 'only us' wipes. Too many times have I watched a boardwipe go off while whispers was out and be left with no creatures afterwards while my opponents just switched theirs around amongst themselves :P

The oath seems pretty cool though. A little bit of a double edged sword though too. I might have to test it out and see how it plays, thanks :)

Ive def got Curse of Op and Shiny Imp in the deck!

seshiro_of_the_orochi Bloodthirsty blade and disrupt decorum are definitely auto includes. I generally try and shy away from the more minor, single use effects in commander, but with the card advantage that Karaz offers it may be more feasible to run things like Trumpet blast, youre right. Zagras is pretty all-round good, as is hellish rebuke.

Siccdecks91 on CEDH: Balthor Zombie Tribal

Sweet list I also have a balthor zombie tribal, you should look into Tombstone Stairwell as another win con. Plague Belcher is also another vengeful dead and might be worth adding. Stairwell combos with vengeful dead and plague belcher and also with noxious ghoul
