This is my latest Zombie Combo build featuring Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver from Innistrad: Midnight Hunt. I affectionately refer to Wilhelt as Zombie Willy Wonka because he cranks out Zombies like candy.

And now…


My goal is to win by assembling an infinite combo as fast as possible. I’m running numerous combo lines which are labeled in the deck-list itself, including the following:

Infinite ETB/LTB Triggers and Zombie Tokens

Ashnod's Altar + Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle

I sac Titan and 1 Zombie token with Altar to produce , which I then spend on Deathmantle to return Titan to play with 2 more Zombie tokens, and so on, generating infinite Enter-the-Battlefield (ETB) and Leave-the-Battlefield (LTB) triggers and Zombie tokens.

Infinite ETB/LTB Triggers and Damage/Life Drain

Blasting Station + Liliana, Untouched By Death + Shambling Ghast

If Station and Liliana on the battlefield, I sac Ghast with Station to deal 1 damage to an opponent and generate a Treasure token. Then I use Liliana’s -4 ability to cast Ghast from my graveyard (spending the Treasure token), untapping Station, then repeatedly sac’ing and casting Ghast, generating infinite ETB/LTB triggers and damage. Alternatively, a different sac outlet like Carrion Feeder also works in combination with Blood Artist to drain infinite life. With Rooftop Storm, Liliana, Ghast, and a sac outlet in play, I can generate infinite ETB/LTB triggers and Treasure tokens.

Infinite ETB/LTB Triggers and Mana

Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver + Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler

With Willy and Altar in play, each time I sac Crawler to Altar I also generate 1 mana and a Zombie token, so I can repeatedly cast Crawler infinite times and generate infinite ETB/LTB triggers and Zombie tokens. I can then sac tokens to Altar to generate as much mana as necessary.

Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm + Zombie

With Altar, Storm, and another Zombie on the battlefield, I can repeatedly sac Crawler with Altar and recast Crawler for free, generating infinite ETB/LTB triggers and infinite mana.

Infinite ETB Triggers and Life Drain

Acererak the Archlich + Rooftop Storm

With Storm on the battlefield, I can repeatedly cast Acererak for 0 mana, venture into the Lost Mine of Phandelver infinite times, and drain each opponent with Dark Pool until each has 0 life.

Infinite Self-Mill Maniac/Oracle Win

Demonic Consultation or Tainted Pact + Thassa's Oracle

This deck is optimized to completely self-mill itself with Consultation or Pact (I must name a card not in the deck), enabling easy wins with Oracle.

Altar of Dementia can be used in place of other sac outlets (Feeder or Station) to mill cards from my own library, or even target an opponent for elimination with a Crawler/Storm loop or Ghast/Liliana loop.

Infinite ETB/LTB Triggers and Zombie Tokens

Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver + Poppet Factory + Zombie + Sac Outlet

With Willy and Poppet Factory in play, decayed no longer matters, and any Zombie token I sac comes back with an additional Zombie token, so I can generate infinite tokens.

Quasi-Infinite Draw and Damage

Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top

With Reservoir, Citadel, and Top in play, I can repeatedly draw a card with Top, using Top’s ability to place it on the top of my library, allowing me to cast Top with Citadel, draw a card, and so on, until I generate enough life with Reservoir to deal 50 damage to each opponent.

Aetherflux Reservoir can also be used in conjunction with the Phyrexian Altar/Gravecrawler or Ghast/Liliana loops to generate infinite life and eliminate each opponent with Resevoir.


Coming soon…

This is a work in progress. I want to make this deck as efficient as possible. Any comments or suggestions are welcome!
