My zombies need this card! (and your brains)
Posted By: Faidite (6/22/2011 5:56:07 AM)


@CXA26483, I disagree. I run an aggro zombie deck with 4 in it. I've noticed that I usually can reasonably get it out on turn 5 or six. Most of my creatures are low cost though. Maybe it's just my mana curve.

Also, black is the color with Dark Ritual, no reason not to take advantage of that if it comes into hand on turn three.

Turn 1: 1 drop zombie
Turn 2: 2 drop zombie
Turn 3: Dark Ritual + Call to the Grave
Turn 4: ?????
Turn 5: Profit

Oh god this is foul! Why haven't i ever seen this!? My zombies were bad enough but this is just cruel!

Obviously brutal in an all-zombie deck. Essentially everyone else will instantly hate you if you manage to get it out, even other black players that aren't playing zombies, which is what really pushes this card over the edge for me. Sometimes it can be hard to control black players because of the limits of removal spells, but this can work around it. Superb card, all around. 4.5/5.

As much as I love this card (and play it as a 3-of in my zombie deck), I have to say, it's high mana cost prevents it from being truly effective. Albeit it's probably right (5cc for a one sided Abyss? Can't complain...), cast it too early, suffer the consequences of having to sac. it due to lack of creatures in play. Cast too late, suffer the consequences of countering or destruction. Overall though, I still think it's playable, especially if you have a small control build (comboing in cards like Unliving Psychopath and Fleshbag Marauder to wipe your opponent's fields while you attack away with your Undead Warchiefs or Soulless Ones).

The Abyss for zombies instead of artifacts. Pretty solid.

High In The Zombie Curve, But With A Dark Ritual....This Should Be MYTHIC
