M19 Brews, pt. 1: Zombies

Seems like they are pushing this theme somewhat for the couple of months before rotation, similarly to what they’ve done in the past with various decks, making some powerful deck have a swansong before the cards fall out of standard.

We have two reprints:

[draft]Death Baron
Diregraf Ghoul[/draft]

Our selection won’t be as good when we had the SOI block at our disposal, but there are still tools.

[draft]Ammit Eternal
Dread Wanderer
Josu Vess, Lich Knight
Liliana’s Mastery
Lord of the Accursed
Metallic Mimic
Plague Belcher[/draft]

The problem with this setup is that we don’t have many two-drops, so I guess we need (sigh) bring white in.

[draft]Mummy Paramount
Wayward Servant[/draft]

[deck]
[creatures]
4 Diregraf Ghoul
4 Dread Wanderer
4 Wayward Servant
4 Mummy Paramount
4 Metallic Mimic
4 Lord of the Accursed
4 Death Baron
4 Plague Belcher
[/creatures]
[apells]
4 Liliana’s Mastery
[/spells]
[lands]
4 Concealed Courtyard
4 Ifnir Deadlands
4 Isolated Chapel
6 Plains
6 Swamp
[/lands]
[/deck]

No removal here. Just trying to attack. That’s probably not a good idea without some tools to get damage through, but we sort of have that in the form of [card]Wayward Servant[/card] and [card]Plague Belcher[/card].

There are other options for the build and there will probably be more after the whole spoiler is out. Some of these cards are not very good, as they are just bodies, which usually isn’t enough even in Standard. You need either ETB effects, synergies or recursion. But if there’s enough of these bodies… Than maybe. Just try to avoid those wraths, which might be problematic.
