MTG – Building a Black and White Zombie-Bleed Deck
Key cards in making an amazing Bleed deck using zombies and some other fun cards. Your opponent will be unable to stop their loss of life while your life remains constant…
Zombie decks focus on overwhelming an opponent with cards like Undead Warchief and Soulless One. Incredibly effective, but not the sort of deck we’re building today. This article will tell you exactly what you need to put together and incredibly powerful black and white zombie deck. It doesn’t focus 100% on zombie creatures, but they are incredibly important to the strategy of this deck. What does this deck do? Read on and find out how powerful this deck really is!

The Imporant Stuff!
These four cards (Shepherd Of Rot, Tainted Sigil, Sanguine Bond, and Children Of Korlis) are the most important part of this deck. Your goal is to take out chunks of your opponent’s life while using a couple of Tainted Sigil and/or Children Of Korlis to get your life back. Tainted Sigil is the better of the two without a doubt, but Children Of Korlis is still needed. With Sanguine Bond in play, you should be able to win within three turns if you’ve played your cards right. You should have four of each of these cards without a doubt!
Of course, these are just the cards that will win you the game without question. However, this deck is capable of winning without these cards. They’re just the keystones. A good deck can win even with its most powerful cards removed/disabled. This deck can do that. If you simply sit back and don’t attack, this deck will shrink your opponent’s life to zero. However, let’s talk more about making the cards above more powerful and effective in this deck.
Zombie Cards To Die For!
An important part of making Shepherd Of Rot useful is having zombie creatures in your deck! Can’t have a zombie deck with only four of the same zombie now can we? Now, this deck is mostly defensive, so these zombies don’t have to be the most powerful zombies in the world. Rather, they just need to be able to do one of to things: be difficult to destroy or provide some kind of ability when they are destroyed. We’ll take a look at these zombies one by one.
