As you probably know, I have a hard on for zombie decks.

Three black for a 5/5 indestructible with the stipulation "control an artifact" and don't let it go away


That said...let's list some good artifacts that make this card playable before Oct. rollout.

Executioner's Capsule (yes I see the issue...doesn't matter, use your 5/5 indestructible until you absolutely HAVE to crack the capsule)
Tidehollow Sculler (silly...just silly)
Basilisk Collar (looking like the best so far)
Pithing Needle
Prophetic Prism
Scepter of Fugue (could this card ever see standard play?)
Borderposts let's talk about the issues with this card. First and foremost...zombies have ALWAYS been clumped in the 3 converted mana cost spot. Why exactly, I'm unsure. It's like a cruel joke by Wizards to make zombies unplayable. Do you know how badly I'd like to play this deck

4x Cemetery Reaper
4x Death Baron
4x Phylactery Lich
4x Shambling Remains
4x Fleshbag Marauder

4x Blightning
4x Executioner's Capsule
2x Basilisk Collar
2x Terminate
4x Lightning Bolt

4x Veinfire Borderpost
20x other lands (doesn't f uckin matter trying to prove a point)

Wow Alex that deck looks tight....oh wait....every f ucking creature is in the god d amn three spot....honestly wtf Wizards. Why don't you suck on Vampire deck's cock a little more. F uck Twilight and Robert Pattinson can (and wants to) eat my a ss

Secondly, card stipulations are anti-Alex game strategy. I don't like having requirements for cards to be played. However, I still think this card is playable considering how much of a bomb it is. Kills Baneslayer....I like.

i like the list but here are a few things to take into consideration.
1st. Blightning, I don't know if this is a card that you are going to want to play because of all Vengvines and the new Obstinate Baloth.
2nd. If you want to bring your curve down maybe you could use Null Champions and Slavering Nulls which are both 2 drops.
3rd. Artifacts, I personally don't like Executioner's Capsule, I would like to see something like 3x Prophetic Prism and maybe a 1x Demon's Horn (I mean who Naturalizes a Demon's Horn)

Here is the list would look like if I made it.
4x Cemetery Reaper
4x Death Baron
4x Phylactery Lich
4x Null Champions
4x Fleshbag Marauder
2x Grave Titan

1x Demon's Horn
3x Prophetic Prism
2x Basilisk Collar
4x Terminate
4x Lightning Bolt
1x Doom Blade

3x Veinfire Borderpost

4x Dagonskull Summit
4x Marsh Flats
2x Arid Mesa
3x Lavacla Reaches
5x Swamp
2x Mountain

P.S. I also agree with you about Twilight and Robert Pattinson being dumb.

Borderposts are sweet tech here and prophetic prism allows for you to play slavering nulls without actually committing to red in any real form. Obviously still playing a mountain or two seems necessary, but with terramorphic or evolving wilds you could easily leave it at low numbers. I love thought hemorrage especially the turn after you drop phylactery lich. I love thought hemorrage also. And yes, twilight is stupid, but Robert pattinson doesn't even know you, why would he eat your ass?
