Upgrade of Sworn to Darkness C14 pre-con. My first deck, and my pet deck. Started as mono-black zombie tribal, and then evolved into monoblack good stuff. I have since refocused the deck around what Gisa really wants to do. Deck ideally wants to sacrifice big undercosted creatures like Phyrexian Dreadnaught to swarm the board. The deck starts a little slowly until you get Ghoulcaller Gisa online with something like Illusionist's Bracers, Elixir of Immortality, or Thornbite Staff to really explode in a turn.

Wins most often with big mana black finishers like Torment of Hailfire or Exsanguinate ideally via mana generated via a swarm of zombies sacrificed to Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar. Also features high value sacrifice targets like Kokusho or Vindictive Lich and a recursion engine.

Deck can be fairly interactive, but lacks targeted removal in favor of more board wipes. Have considered tweaking the deck with a more efficient aristocratic general like Yahenni, Undying Partisan, but I just can't quit Ghoulcaller Gisa. I'm open to any suggestions folks might have.
