Undead Augur Discussion

multimedia on Expensive afterlife

Wow, lots of good card here. It's not every day I see a Candelabra of Tawnos :)

I don't think you're taking enough advantage of having a sac outlet in the Command Zone. Grimgrin's no mana cost sac is his strongest ability.

These Zombies give you value when another Zombie dies, when one is saced by Grimgrin.

Some other upgrades to consider:

Black is too important of the color to have in the early game because the majority of Zombies are black not blue. 10x Island is a lot I suggest cutting lots of Islands and replacing them with other playable Dimir dual lands.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Divination
  • Scour All Possibilities
  • Gruesome Fate
  • Return from Extinction
  • Exclude
  • Defile
  • Walking Corpse
  • Tattered Mummy
  • Graveshifter
  • Gravedigger
  • Ingenious Infiltrator
  • Stronghold Assassin
  • Necromaster Dragon
  • Argentum Armor
  • Door of Destinies
  • Grave Betrayal
  • Finale of Eternity
  • Kindred Dominance
  • Ashnod's Altar

Good luck with your deck.

Since your plan is to establish an overwhelming board state with buffed zombies, I suggest you look up the following creatures:

Undead Augur - Very cheap card and an additional draw engine for your deck.

Butcher Ghoul and Putrid Goblin - These serve as fodder to carrion feeder or suicide squad for augur card draw. Then you can bring them back to your hand with Relentless Dead, re-cast, rinse and repeat. Very cheap cards.

Lazotep Reaver - Same as the two above but it instead of waiting for the death trigger, this gives you 2 bodies upon resolution. Very cheap.

Geralf's Messenger - Reanimates itself, good ETB x 2, good for devotion, kinda expensive though.

For removal, I think either Defile or Dark Salvation deserves a spot in your deck or at least your future sideboard. Also very cheap cards.

I haven't really looked into Throne of Eldraine, but man Murderous Rider is good! I think you should have at least 3 copies.

I limited my suggestions to <3 CMC. If you want your deck to be more competitive, lower your average CMC. Also, try to stay away from stuff that exile cards from your graveyard. I suggest you cut those.

I have paper monoB zombie tribal as well, started with more or less the same build as yours. I think you have too many lords, you only need Death Baron to control the board. Lord of the Accursed is a "win more" card, it will only slow you down. The Reaper will slow you down as well. Though it can answer graveyard problems, I prefer sideboarding Withered Wretch for that effect.

Hope this helps. Good luck on your build.

Seems a tad land heavy and zombie light. This was under the help section so if you specify the kind of help you need the community could help you more. At first glance you're missing some core zombies Undead Augur , Undead Warchief , and Lord of the Undead

I know we shouldn't overthink it, but I think you should put at least some thought into your mana curve. No two-drops? 20 three-drops? Seems a little clunky. I'd drop the Tomebound Lich for Undead Augur or Relentless Dead . Just a suggestion. Also I've really been liking Compelling Deterrence as a tempo play/ removal.

Undead Augur is a card from modern horizons and is likely one of the strongest zombie tribal pieces ever printed. I don't know if you're not running it because you didn't know about it, you're only running cards you already own, or your worried about the life loss, but I still strongly recommend it.

I had Mob in the sideboard but I think Dark Salvation can function similarly. It’s back in.

Geralf's Messenger is a great value three drop zombie. But aside from Diregraf Colossus , three drop slots are reserved for lords. Colossus is stiff competition against Messenger for value three drop, but in a true tribal shell the payoff of Colossus simply outmatches Messenger. Considering we can take advantage of the combo of Carrion Feeder + Gravecrawler with Undead Augur , Colossus is another value piece that plays with that sac engine.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is simply too expensive for your typical Aether Vial curve. Better served alongside the aforementioned Messenger in a devotion shell.

Plague Belcher in interesting in that you can loosely mimic Arcbound Ravager / Walking Ballista by combining with Carrion Feeder and dump your board on your opponent’s life. But like Diregraf Colossus to fill that role. He can be big on his own and also puts more pressure less directly on our opponent’s life.

epartica I would definetely keep the Undead Augur , but whether or not you keep the Prophesies is up to you. It's riskier if you run Haruspex, but the reward can be greater in my opinion.

7H30F7 That's reason why I kept Dark Prophecy because it wouldn't matter it was a token or not. Although having both of them Undead Augur and Grim Haruspex would make a lot of card draw which would help play more people. I'm just afraid of moving to more creatures because of the chance of getting board wiped or cards that can exile all cards based on there names. But having more creatures would definitely be stronger
