From Undead to Unstoppable: Rise of a Zombie Lord

Commander / EDH* Sacrifice Tokens UB (Dimir) Zombie



Artifact (1)

Wilhelt is the Lord of the horde and this deck seeks to create an overwhelming Zombie token engine. It's mainly a go wide deck but he has a couple quick-kill combos. I listed the infinite combo that can be performed with this deck because it's there. My meta doesn't reward infinites so I didn't include some of the other ones popular with this commander. I'd love to hear what's working for you. Thanks for looking and your upvotes, and suggestions are appreciated.

Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver on the field with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed lets you kill off your zombies and bring them right back in with a decayed token to keep them company.
Tombstone Stairwell absolutely floods (everyone's) battlefield with hasty zombie tokens. They die and are replenished each upkeep.
If I have Noxious Ghoul on the field, it's killing off everyone's non-zombie creatures.
If I have Grave Pact online, it's wiping the board every turn... well, except for the undead.
if I have Wilhelt on the field, I'm getting a decayed zombie for every tombspawn zombie that dies.
If I add Eldrazi Monument I keep my indestructible, flying 3/3 zombies.
fill your graveyard with zombies via sacking them to Phyrexian Altar, Empty the Laboratory, Carrion Feeder or by discarding them with Necromancer's Stockpile, Cryptbreaker, Windfall, or Dread Summons. Cast Zombie Apocalypse to bring them all back.
bonus fun if you have Tormod, the Desecrator, Necroduality or Reflections of Littjara on the field after everything dies but before rapturing your graveyard. Fill your graveyard and, get plenty of token triggers using Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver 's ability along with Bone Miser, Headless Rider. Use Poppet Stitcher   's flipside to morph the decayed tokens into 3/3 not decayed tokens.
- 1. cast a kicked Rite of Replication or Blade of Selves on Gray Merchant of Asphodel - 2. Attach Blade of Selves on Vindictive Lich in a 4 player game and each attack will cause 2 triggers if the tokens die if they don't, sac em after combat to activate triggers. - 3. Token Combo Ghoulcaller Gisa and Intruder Alarm
Infinite Mana: sac Gravecrawler to Phyrexian Altar with Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver on the field. You get a decayed zombie and 2 mana. Bring back Gravecrawler and do it again...and again. each time nets 1 extra mana. Infinite Damage:add a pinger like Bontu's Monument to the above combo and do 1 damage (and gain 1 life) on each cast.
My favorite weapon in this deck is attaching Blade of Selves to Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Only thing better than 1 Gary, is 3 Garys!
Nothing on the horizon but I’d love suggestions. What’s working in yours?

Question is Kormus Bell to dangerous to use?

Thanks for checking out my build, suggestions welcome.
