Me and some friends back home were looking through different formats online, and came across this one.

It's pretty interesting. What do you guys/girls think?

Link to description is here.

I would totally play it. I think we can proxy our own Horde deck and have a nice game at one meet.

Would anyone be against Custom zombie cards for the Horde Deck? If not, I will get started on my new experiment! HAUEHUAEH

Basically, you get a group of people (max of 4) to fight against a horde of endless zombies.
The survivors (the players) must construct a 100 card singleton deck each (so an EDH, without a commander) and fight against the horde. The horde deck will consist of awesome zombie/black-flavoured stuff and a whole bunch of zombie tokens (the version online had 55). The horde deck is also 100 card singleton minus the tokens.

The survivors get a 3 turn set up, then the fight will begin. The survivors play like two-headed giant, take the turns simultaneously. When the horde's turn comes, a player will flip cards from the deck until a NON-TOKEN card is revealed. All tokens are put into play as well as the non-token card revealed. All the horde's stuff has haste and must attack each turn if able to.

You win when the horde's deck has no cards in it, and all zombies are dead (any damage dealt to the horde, a card is milled). You lose if the survivors life total is 0 (beginning life is 20 per survivor).

^pretty much what the whole thing says.

Ah well then. Extra turns and wrath effects sounds like a good idea. O.O

Aiden, I don't think the point is to trash the zoms, it's supposed to be a fun side-game.

That said, I'd slap a random deck on the table to play this. Like Rhys. Just to stack the odds against me Razz

Well, you kind of have to trash them at some point... I've played a few 1v1 matches, and the horde gets huge... It's a good idea to have a survivor that's deck is made to sweep the board and/or take extra turns... so try and get rid of the ever increasing horde.

How to win this format in two cards.

Humility + Night of Soul's Betrayal

Problem? /trollface

Does this make us the alliance? And does anyone have any Horde decks actually built? I think these would be fun to play EDH against. Big flashy effects to deal with a big, flashy army.

The point is not to slaughter though. It's to fight an epic battle. Planeswalkers will DIE with honor.

I'd probably play some sort of combo deck in all honesty, likely to kill myself with it by drawing out like I usually do...

Oh Higurashi, how I love you.

So is anyone building one of these things? If I had more free time and the energy to run around and find pieces I would, but that just ain't gonna happen....
