Magic the Gathering "Zombie Deck"



OVERVIEW: This deck was created with Zombie horror films in mind. You can kill the zombies, but they will just keep coming back. This is basically a beat down deck. It has some problems against other mono black decks, but for the most part this one is a killer, quite literally.


CARD LIST:
Aphetto Dredging
Cruel Revival
Dark Banishing x 3
Dark Ritual x 2
Festering Goblin x 2
Frightshroud Courier x 2
Gempalm Polluter x 2
Gravedigger x 3
Hex
Infectious Host x 4
Raise Dead x 4
Severed Legion x 2
Soulless One
Soulless Revival
Stir the Grave x 2
Swamps x 24
Twisted Abomination
Vengeful Dead x 2
Zombie Brute
Zombify

CREATURE: Infectious Host doesn’t seem like much at first glance, but your opponent will be afraid of blocking it, so it will have opportunity to get through in an attack once or twice. The Gempalm Polluter is another good card to help drain your opponent’s life while your other zombies tear them apart.

INSTANT: The creature destruction here will keep out the pesky giants and dragons as long as they aren’t black. Cruel Revival will take care of the ones who are black as long as they aren’t zombies. Dark Ritual can get you a creature on your first turn if played right.

SORCERY: No Zombie deck would be complete without Raise Dead. However, Stir the Grave and Zombify can put the zombies right back into play. Hex is great when you want to kill a lot of your opponents creatures and don’t mind taking out a couple of your own.

CLOSING THOUGHTS - I would never make an unbeatable deck. I believe that Magic the Gathering is about learning to think critically and strategically and having weaknesses in a deck is all a part of the plan. Let me know in the comments if this deck works for you or if there are any changes you would make to it. I am eager to exchange ideas.

Happy Playing!
