Quote from Simto »What do you guys think is the best way to deal with mono black zombies? I know it's going to be a thing at my local FNM, so I need some graveyard hate.
Is the best thing just to find room for two scavenger grounds?
My deck has tons of spot removal and I run 2 Settle main and 1 fumigate side, but having some graveyard hate will be crucial.
I'm only running one Field of Ruin, but I've actually never really had a use for it, so I'm thinking Scavenger ground will be better.
As always, Vraska's Contempt will be key. I am going back to Fumigate in the SB due to the Knight matchup. Settle can work, but it they are smart and play around it, you may lose anyway. Also, The Scarab God should wreck them, you just need to untap with it. I think smart board management and sequencing will be most important.

I tried 1 at FNM. Only played it twice. It was good, but I think I have to reconfigure the deck overall, as just sticking him in there was an error. I think the card has a bright future, though. One game, I got Teferi to 8 with Tez at 8 and 3 Thopters. My opponent unfortunately scooped before I got the chance to remove all of his permanents lol. If Teferi didn't exist, he'd be the control king.
I also tried Chromium, btw. I like it, but I think it's overrated. Too easy to work around. Unless you have a control heavy metagame, I think he sits out until rotation. We have to worry about the various aggro decks, Knights and Grixis.
