[Decklist] Vintage Bridge From Below

What can I say? I like graveyard decks. This deck may be based on a tourney level Legacy (?) deck and I'm sure there's a Vintage decklist somewhere (?) but here's something I threw together.

('Question marks' because I've seen the original tournament deck, but I haven't searched for a Vintage version of the deck.)



[Decklist] Vintage Bridge From Below

Creatures
---------
1 Akroma, Angel of Wrath
4 Narcomoeba
4 Basking Rootwalla
1 Ichorid
4 Golgari Grave-Troll
4 Stinkweed Imp
1 Anger
1 Wonder

Drawing / Discard / Graveyard
-----------------------------
4 Bridge From Below
4 Careful Study
3 Cabal Therapy
3 Dread Return
1 Life / Death
1 Life From the Loam
1 Entomb
1 Wheel of Fortune

Mana
----
1 Sol Ring
4 Mox Diamond
4 Bazaar of Baghdad
1 Riftstone Portal
4 Cephalid Coliseum
1 Dryad Arbor
4 Underground Sea
4 Volcanic Island

For those who don't know the combo, the idea is complicated, yet simple:
  1. Get as many cards with Dredge into your graveyard as fast as possible.
  2. While you dump your library into your graveyard, you fill your graveyard with Flashback cards and get your Narcomoeba into play.
  3. Sac 3 creatures to Flashback a Dread Return with a couple Bridge From Below in your grave.
  4. You'll get a ton of zombies, hopefully with haste, and attack for the win.

You'll notice that it's possible to play an entire game without hard casting a single card.

Careful Study, Bazaar of Baghdad, and Cephalid Coliseum all work as double duty to fill your grave as long as you have dredge.

I'm also always on the hunt to fit Life / Death into a deck. In this deck, the recursion obviously work, but it also use use "life" in a pinch. No creatures to sac? Cast a green, sac your land, and attack with your army of zombies.
