Absolutely shit down your opponent's throat with Tombstone Stairwell.

In EDH, your zombie token army is getting removed usually in one turn around the table. This guy assures that a wrath effect still takes a pound of someone's flesh (unless they exile everything with some Terminus BS, but for that, make sure you are packing an Altar of Dementia). If you have Mindcrank out, that ping effect really adds up for UB mill. If you have Bloodchief Ascension out, pinging from Zombies really speeds up those counters. His art rocks too.

Oh, Zombies, you'll always have a place in my heart. Especially when so many of your cards are just so cool.

Probably a very good card in the right deck, but personally my least favourite of the captain cycle.

Stromkirk Captain
Drogskol Captain
Diregraf Captain

Tribal Support: As one of the more heavily-pushed tribes on Innistrad, Zombies have received solid support in the form of powerful creatures and relevant enchantments. Although Zombies tend to be individually weaker than creatures of other tribes, they have a focus on sheer numbers and graveyard recursion that makes them difficult to get rid of. Because of cards like Ghoulcaller's Chant and Endless Ranks of the Dead, Diregraf Captain often gets to support many more creatures than his counterparts do. On a side note, Standard Zombies have suffered from the lack of a powerful 2-drop for some time, and unlike Vampires, they didn't get much of a curve-filler in M14 (i.e. Gnawing Zombie/... (see all)

Is it me or do we have an outrageously large amount of possible zombie lords in standard right now? Let me see...
This, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Ravengul Runebinder, in Dark Ascension, Adaptive Automaton and Cemetery Reaper in M12 and Undead Alchemist in Innistrad.
...FIVE LORDS? And that's without counting all other pro-zombie cards like Call to the Grave and Endless Ranks of the Dead. And the new zombie Bloodghast (Gravecrawler).

Nice! Between this and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Zombie Tribal is looking pretty spiffy!

Yes because zombies needed more tech...
Then again this is Innistrad.

I'm just going to clear the board with black sun zenith, do a ton of damage to you when my zombies die and then bring them all back next turn with Zombie Apocalypse :) Have a nice day :) Stupid humans!!!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
