Unleash the power of the graveyard

My first Black/Green/Blue Zombie Tribal Deck with focus on graveyard mechanics. Want to try another approach on this colors.

Use the potential of the zombie skills to get control over the board and use the combo win conditions or lifedrain options to win the game.

Your ideas are welcome :)

The primary idea of ​​the deck is the ability of Muldrotha, the Gravetide in combination with all the possibilitys of sacrifice and graveyard cards. I don't want to use much instant or sorcery spells to take advantage of Muldrotha, the Gravetide ability (For example: Attrition, Seal of Primordium or Strip Mine as multiple destroyer cards).

Deck is work in progress. I looked for other decks with the same mechanic. Thanks goes out to NinjaBunny01 and Pikobyte ;)

Winning cards: Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Mortal Combat, The Scarab God, Phyrexian Altar, Tombstone Stairwell, Acererak the Archlich, Defense of the Heart

Phyrexian Altar combo

Phyrexian Altar and Gravecrawler + one of these variants:

  1. Grave Pact to destroy every enemy creature
  2. Tormod, the Desecrator or Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver or Diregraf Colossus for unlimited tokens
  3. Meren of Clan Nel Toth for unlimited counters to summon every creature from your graveyard
  4. Black Market or Rooftop Storm for unlimited mana
  5. Champion of the Perished unlimited +1/+1 counter
  6. Diregraf Captain or Plague Belcher unlimited life drain
  7. Noxious Ghoul unlimited -1/-1 counter for non zombies
  8. Liliana, Dreadhorde General for unlimited card draw.

Mortal Combat combo

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries combo

Mill as much as possible with Forgotten Creation, Underrealm Lich, Necromancer's Stockpile, Cryptbreaker, Old Stickfingers and use Jace, Wielder of Mysteries last ability.

Acererak the Archlich combo

Use Acererak the Archlich with Rooftop Storm and infinity venture into Lost Mine of Phandelver for life leach. Thanks to NinjaBunny01!

Tombstone Stairwell combos

Tombstone Stairwell works well with a few cards in this deck. It has high costs, bute these can be payed with Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar or Black Market. Make sure that your enemys graveyard can't be used to easy with Tormod's Crypt. U can reuse Tombstone Stairwell and Tormod's Crypt with Muldrotha, the Gravetide ability. With Wonder in your graveyard, you got a fast and flying army of zombie in no time.

  1. Tombstone Stairwell + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver = The cards get destroyed and Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver generate the same amount of zombies with decay.
  2. Tombstone Stairwell + Plague Belcher or Diregraf Captain = Lifedrain
  3. Tombstone Stairwell + Meren of Clan Nel Toth = Easy creature cast from the graveyard
  4. Tombstone Stairwell + Liliana, Dreadhorde General = Card draw
  5. Tombstone Stairwell + Champion of the Perished = Champion of the Perished will soon be a very strong zombie
  6. Tombstone Stairwell + Noxious Ghoul = Constant -1/-1 for every non zombie
  7. Tombstone Stairwell + Black Market = Mana ramp

Save combos

  1. Kaya's Ghostform. After the commander gets destroyed, recast Kaya's Ghostform immediately.
  2. Nim Deathmantle can be used to save the commander and gives him a zombie type.
