Quote from umtigerI have a mono-black Zombie deck and I find that the best zombies so far have been:
1. Noxious Ghoul
2. Fleshbag Marauder
3. Corpse Connoisseur
Connoisseur gives you a lot of strategies. With Lord of the Undead, he's tutors into your hand. With Filth, he makes your team unblockable. Fill your deck with more zombies and you can use Grave Defiler.
An old removal card that is on theme is Feast and Famine. Most people have never heard of that card. Strangely, it has nothing to do with Sword of Feast and Famine.
Quote from slylieI personally like Insidious Dreams in this kind of deck, EOT dump two zombies and tutor into zombie apocalypse or bidding or both. Or dump a zombie to get Grave Defiler /Zombie/Zombie/Zombie Stack. Worse than demonic tutor but fun and on spot with the strategy.
Edit: BTW I really am starting to hate Vengeful Pharoah. When you get attacked by a swarm and you are trying to topdeck a wrath its really bad to have in your grave. It's never really been a huge deterrent to attacks either, just has never been that good for me.
I am convinced that WotC is "dumbing" the game because of all the stupid posts they come across on MTG-related forums
