Creature — Zombie
Unbreathing Horde enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it for each other Zombie you control and for each Zombie card in your graveyard.
If Unbreathing Horde would be dealt damage, prevent that damage and remove a +1/+1 counter from it.
Unbreathing Horde Discussion
1 month ago
Things to remove and why:
Worry Beads - too slow Endless ranks of the dead- dead if you don't have other zombies out
From Under the Floorboards - no way to activate madness which is what makes it good
Unbreathing Horde - you can keep if you want, but it only helps if you self mill and you just don't have that many creatures
Dark Salvation - keep it only if you can fix your mana generation issues. If you can consistently get 10+ mana a game then keep it.
Exsanguinate - it's just a worse Torment of hailfire, and again you don't generate 20+ mana consistently.
Butcher of Malakir - Costs too much mana, and when you need to wipe the board you have boardwipes to do that anyways.
Things to add:
Altar of Dementia swap that one out for Ashnod's, it's better in this deck
Grindclock , it's slow but it gets a lot better with Unwinding clock, and if you can land it early it'll do some serious work over the course of a game.
Helm of Obedience is a pricey card but definitely would do work here
Millstone if you took that one out

Due to the way they are depicted in the promo video, and the flavor text on the cards with Amass; I can’t help but feel like the Army token was supposed to function more-or-less like the second ability of Unbreathing Horde ..
Of course, we’ve only seen a handful of cards with the Amass keyword on it.. We could very well see some form of quasi-Banding before everything is said & done (not likely, but it’s still fun to speculate about)..

I know the error happens in the "Swaps:" section and below because if I take it out, the deck saves. How do I fix it?

Hello! The first and the main question: what's your budget? Because you need to fix mana base at first: Watery Grave , Drowned Catacomb or Darkslick Shores instead of those dual lands you have. Speaking about creatures: Cryptbreaker is one of my favorite zombies. Card advantage plus madness enabler - and very cheap. Unbreathing Horde isn't bad but Diregraf Colossus is much better. Voldaren Pariah Flip? Just because its madness cost and transforming effect? I think Grave Titan is better but it's a question of taste (and budget of course). You can also use Fleshbag Marauder + Gisa and Geralf . And what do you think about Endless Ranks of the Dead ? Some words about sideboard: hand disruption - Duress (but Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are much - much! - better), control and discard - Compelling Deterrence (cheap and fun, yes), removal - Vraska's Contempt .

I’m not the biggest fan of Unbreathing Horde either. I guess my thought was, when the Diregraf Colossus is out, every zombie spell you cast is doubled because you get a 2/2 body. And in games where your opponent is going to sweep your bored playing that and then following it up with your other recursive creatures will double the amount of body is you actually get onto the field. And in the event that you have a board stall between you and your opponent, we’re neither of you can attack favorably, that can really tip the numbers in your direction.

Thanks for the feedback, greatly appreciated.
Although i feel like Diregraf Colossus is a strong card, it had the same issues that Unbreathing Horde had. It rarely gets any value early game, and late game its mostly irrelevant. But i might consider sideboarding it in :)

Hey Nick123. I hate to tell you this, but you have this mislabeled. This would be legal in modern, but there are several cards (Cryptbreaker, Diregraf Colossus, Gravecrawler, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Plague Belcher, Relentless Dead, Unbreathing Horde and Liliana's Mastery) that are illegal in standard. I do not know if you are wanting to play standard, or if this is just casual, but if you are looking to play standard, you will have to make quite a few changes. Either way have fun!
