Commander / EDH Control RBW (Mardu) Sacrifice Zombie


It makes sense that treasures would be easily acquired in the gruesome Hellscape that would be the Zombie Apocalypse and as such I felt it flavorful to include Revel in Riches as a wincon. Anointed Procession and Smothering Tithe hasten our victory through enchantment support while Mahadi, Emporium Master and Xorn give us a boost on bodies.

Negan holds an iron grip through sheer force on smaller, weaker settlements around his area. Negan doesn't care about what psychotic remnant he has to employ to enforce his dominance and that's pretty much the concept here as well. Through cards like Plaguecrafter Negan can control the board but the deck really sees the mechanic pay off when paired with cards like Grave Pact.

Martyr's Bond pairs exceptionally well with Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter and Ghen, Arcanum Weaver as well allowing us to clear out more than just creatures.

This is where Tergrid, God of Fright   and Grave Betrayal shine letting us steal our opponents' stuff.

Negan will trim your numbers and horde your goods because everything belongs to Negan.

Anyone is expendible in the mind of Negan but no one more so than the nameless, faceless throngs of persons too weak to survive outside of a semblance of structure. Bitterblossom and Outlaws' Merriment allow Negan to create tokens for outlets like Viscera Seer and Phyrexian Altar satisfying that narrative.

Not buying simply recurring things as fulfilment of the thing? Fine. -.-

Aside from the afore mentioned recursion (Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Athreos, God of Passage, Champion of Stray Souls, etc.) this brew also includes cards like Open the Graves and Endless Ranks of the Dead to flood as many zomboids as we can muster. Ghoulcaller Gisa and Xathrid Necromancer go together like peas and carrots.

If that's not enough flesh rending terror, God-Eternal Oketra catches them coming, and Grave Betrayal catches them going.

Clock of Omens + Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter + Liquimetal Torque go infinite for treasures and sac fodder.

Darkest Hour + Phyrexian Altar + Teysa, Orzhov Scion gives us infinite mana.

Hell's Caretaker + Open the Graves + Thornbite Staff allows Negan to recur anything in the yard ad nauseam while flooding the board with zombies.

Anyway, there it is. My best attempt at crafting a thematically true deck for this universe. Thanks for checking it out.
