This is a mix on zombie tribal/ aristocratic deck. I originally built full zombie tribal but realized that it was weak to board wipes and control. Most of my decks are also pretty basic and revolve around creature swarm and buff, so I wanted to try something a little different.

The goal of this deck is to sacrifice Gravecrawler or a zombie token to Carrion Feeder for damage if you have Zulaport Cutthroat. Geralf's Messenger is also a good target for this since he deals damage while leaving the field.

Geralf's Messenger also combos with Unearth for double the value.

Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia is here to pump out continuous fodder for cards like Carrion Feeder, Bone Shards, or Village Rites. Corpse Knight provides damage every time you recast Gravecrawler or a token comes into play. It also triggers whenever another creature comes in.

One goal of this deck is to continuously have zombies coming into the field to pump Champion of the Perished, and deal damage with Corpse Knight. Or leaving the field to deal damage to the opponent with Zulaport Cutthroat.

Bone Shards and Fatal Push are in the deck for some control. Since you will be sacrificing creatures to deal damage, you will most likely not have a large number of powerful creatures to defend with. Fatal Push is very effective since you will either have creatures leaving the battlefield or land fetches activating (Marsh Flats).

Undead Augur, and Village Rites provide the majority of card draw, while Castle Locthwain is here if things start to slow down. Undead Augur combos well with Zulaport Cutthroat for free card draw.

The Meathook Massacre is in the sideboard for some additional control and damage. However, considering this card is $40, I will probably not actually use it.

Let me know if you think this deck sucks and is not competitive. I appreciate all forms of constructive criticism!
