Game Plan

We've finally done it, we've made a Skullclamp that won't ruin standard and is highly ineffective but is pretty funny when you get it together.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia constantly making a 2/2 Decayed zombie can be abused by getting value off of the token dying! That's exactly our game plan when it comes to trying to equip Mask of Griselbrand to our zombies. The card is absurdly clunky and costs a ton of mana to equip but holy hell is it fun when you get it going. The fact that it's an artifact gives it a little bit more staying power as Mono Black can't deal with it. However, they can just deal with all of your stuff but we're hoping to equip the Mask before they remove it so we can get our value.

$ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00 $ 0.00

With how much removal there is in this standard, we need the value from Headless Rider to reward us when we lose our nontoken zombies. With all of our zombies, we're also hoping to use Geralf, Visionary Stitcher to fly over all the ground units that gum up our path to combat!


The deck is very much just a zombie deck trying to be extra cute, but Zombies are always fun to try out! Flip the Switch isn't actually a good card either, but it's fun to have an on theme counterspell. Zombies need so much help in order to get anywhere near tier 2. For now, it's just for funsies! We built a 42-step process to make a Skullclamp and that's all we need, hehe.

Thanks for watching the content.
