One of the best outlets for free discard around.

Discard creature cards (especially >5-6 CMC ones) and cheat them out of the graveyard with Reanimate or, if taking the life loss would put you too low, Rise From The Grave which also makes it a Zombie as well. Also can come out en masse with Liliana Vess. The tokens can help protect Lili while you build her up.

This will be a nice synergy with Cemetery Reaper.

@ iantewks

because.. you active the effect of one of then once each..
if you want send to the stack..need to discard two more cards for each u want to send to stack..
and then it resolves for separate..

Very clever flavor text. Doesn't initially seem related, until you look back at the title and picture and say "oh... right."

It would be impossible to get 34 2/2 Zombies out on Turn 3 with that strategy.
Turn 1> Swamp or island. (7 cards in hand)
Turn 2> Land you haven't played before.> Zombie infestation. (6 cards in hand)
Turn 3> Zombie Infestation ability to discard 3 pairs of cards to get three 2/2 tokens> Treasure hunt to draw every land in your deck and one of the bottom non-land cards.(Before you draw you have 0 cards in hand)> Draw 45 (If your opening hand consisted of land cards.)> Discard 44 to get 22 Zombies. Or if your opening hand was zombie infestations and treasure hunts you would draw 51 cards getting about 25 zombies.
Now assuming all your other Zombie Infestation cards are on the bottom (along with Treasure Hunts)
that would be the most you could get: 28.

No one would play with you after this. :|

Also, Pithing Needle, lol. xD

ahahaha! just tore apart a $70+ exalted deck with 4 of these,
4 treasure hunt, 26 islands, and 26 swamps.
(many, many) 2/2 zombies on turn 3 for the win.

does the zombie makin' stack if you have multiples in play?
(thanks Kloid!)

Card Advantage? You know what's even better than Card Advantage?
Getting a 1,000,000 mana card out on turn 2.

Swamp, Dark Ritual, Zombie Infestation, discard GLEEMAX.
Swamp, find something that lets me sacrifice creatures to bring back artifacts. I'm SURE they've made one. :)
