MTG Deck – Modern – Undead Barrage (in honor of Sam Black)

MTG Deck - Undead Barrage

Hello Nurglings!

It’s about time! FINALLY there is a Modern deck out there that I can use Bloodghast in! So I’m a huge fan of a Legacy Deck created by Sam Black, the list is below he used when going top-8 in Grand Prix Atlanta.

Sam Black’s Zombie Bombardment

Lands: 20
3x Badlands
3x Bloodstained Mire
2x Marsh Flats
3x Polluted Delta
3x Scrubland
2x Swamp
1x Undiscovered Paradise
3x Verdant Catacombs

Creatures: 18
3x Blood Artist
4x Bloodghast
4x Carrion Feeder
4x Gravecrawler
3x Tidehollow Sculler

Other Spells: 22
2x Bitterblossom
4x Cabal Therapy
4x Faithless Looting
3x Goblin Bombardment
4x Lingering Souls
4x Thoughtseize
1x Tragic Slip

Okay we’re missing a few key cards from the list in Modern, first of all: Carrion Feeder. It’s a very important zombie that we sadly can’t get in to our Modern deck, but there are a few interesting options that you can use instead. The one I’ve decided to use for this list is : Geralf’s Messenger. It’s a bit costly for a deck that want to keep it cheap, but I think that it will work out, will just have to try and see. I’ve also added a 4th copy of Tidehollow Sculler for that extra zombie card, which we need for Gravecrawler.

Another thing that makes Carrion Feeder a great card is the fact that it grows larger as you ping your opponent with Blood Artist, AND it can also make your Tidehollow Sculler to hand removal. Sacrifice the Sculler in response to it’s trigger and the card is gone forever.

The second card we’re missing from this list is Goblin Bombardment. But guess what? With the M14 release we get a card that is not even half as good, but it gives us a card that functions very similar to it: Barrage of Expendables. Which you can see here below:

MTG - in with the barrage

Okay so you just want the list of cards right? Well here you go:

Nurgle’s Undead Barrage

Lands: 22
4x Marsh Flats
4x Verdant Catacombs
2x Arid Mesa
4x Blood Crypt
4x Godless Shrine
3x Blackcleave Cliffs
1x Mutavault

Creatures: 19
4x Bloodghast
4x Gravecrawler
4x Blood Artist
4x Tidehollow Sculler
3x Geralf’s Messenger

Other spells: 19
4x Barrage of Expendables
4x Faithless Looting
4x Lingering Souls
4x Thoughtseize
2x Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
1x Inquisition of Kozilek

Yes I also added 2 Sorins to the deck, these are in the deck instead of Bitterblossom… cause it’s banned! I just want to see if they can work alright in the deck. So guys, I hope you enjoy the list and will give it a try if you have the cards available, and let me know how it works alright? Awesome!

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!
