Modern Rakdos Zombies with Fell Stinger! – Preview Highlight

I have a love for decks with sacrifice themes and Zombie tribal decks. Innistrad: Crimson Vow has an interesting new tool for these style of decks: Fell Stinger




Zombies’ strength as a tribal deck has always been its ability to outgrind midrange and control decks. Fell Stinger seems like a powerful card draw effect when paired with cards like Gravecrawler, Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia, Geralf’s Messenger and Undead Augur. It also gains a lot of power when paired with Aether Vial, allowing you to play it as instant speed, potentially in response to a removal spell. It’s also nice that Stinger can deal two points of damage to close out the game a turn early. 

Here’s a draft of what the new Modern Rakdos Zombies might look like:


4 Undead Augur
4 Swamp
3 Goblin Bombardment
4 Geralf's Messenger
