    Portal does not grant haste to allies brought back by Gravebone's ability. Get rid of them and add more allies, you don't have enough for a Gravebone deck, especially one running Shadow Knight.

    Portal can work with Gravebone, but not with that ally mix. You've got a more control style build so remove the Portals as Warr Byrd said.

    You are also quite top heavy with your allies. Gravebone's early game stinks so I'd add some extra 3 cost allies (Morbid Acolyte or Death Collector). Replace the Shadow Knights.

    Also I'd swap the Clinging Webs for Consuming Fear, but that's a personal thought.

    As said above, portal can worked on Gravebone deck. It because Gravebone skill benefit most from bigger ally. And portal have more and less the same characteristics.

    So here my GODZILLA deck for example if u want to keep portal on ur deck. Duno if it fall on the rush/control type or between

    Hero:
    Gravebone

    Ally:
    4 Ironhide Karash
    4 Infernal Gargoyle
    3 Morbid Acolyte/Death Collector
    2 Plasma Behemoth
    4 Brutal Minotour
    1 Ogloth the Glutton

    Item:
    4 Tome of Knowledge
    1 Wrath of Summer
    1 Dagger of Unmaking

    Ability:
    2 Shriek of Vengeance
    2 Fireball
    4 Lightning Strike
    3 Portal
    2 Supernova
    2 Ley Line Nexus

    Brutal Minotour is just brutal thing with Gravebone skill and portal. Just remember to sac it when facing opponent with a lot of Mind Control. Agains another deck, its a beast.

    control gravebone?

    balanced allies (4 ironhide, 3 garg/3dmt/3morbid, 5-6 fatties of your preference, i like molten and scourge and maybe 2 more 2cc or 3cc allies) with consuming fear/lighting strike and maybe fireball. steady draw. probably no supernova ( ) and item destruction, most likely shrieks over acidjet/LLN. if you know who you are playing, maybe a couple of sever ties.

    Welcome to the game and forums. I don't play much mage and even less gravebone, but you've already received a nice haul of good advice!
