Seems like a fun and well rounded deck, but I'd be scared to run it without some standard cards like a Mana Crystal, Cheetah Speed/Mongoose Agility, Leather Gloves and a couple Nullifies.   I'd suggest dropping a couple creatures for a couple Nullifies as they are cheap and so useful in protecting your equipment, guards, etc.

He has a lack of living creatures and so Cheetah Speed / Mongoose Agility would not help him.

I agree having them to put on himself is quite useful, but certainly not standard for a necromancer. 50/50 as to whether one should or should not.

Well, I was thinking like standing in the backrounds covered with cloak standing in the cloud and boosting my skeletons with charge (mage wand). :)

Certainly viable. Just be aware that movement is still critical as a necromancer. A step or two in the right direction will turn the game, but using skeletons carefully may avoid even that necessity. Play a few games, and if you ever find yourself needing to move two squares and act or run from hindering, then you will have your answer.

This is a very solid book. I like the addition of the Charges. Not knowing what you generally face on a regular basis I'd just say knock around with it for a bit, get you some matches in, and tinker from there if needed. As is I like it.

What we must all remember is no matter the game we were all newbies at one point.

This looks awesome! Let me know how often you use all 3 reassembles and the unholy resurgence. I personally  only run 1 of each and find I never cast them.

If you're ever on OCTGN, I'd love to help you test your match out.

Thanks :) I will see how it turns out, but I can easily change 2 for a nullify, in fact, I think of replacing one dissolve for a nullify, just to protect my precious equipment

Well, I do not play MW on OCTGN, sorry :-/
