Agent of Erebos Discussion

I used your deck to playtest against for the last hour or so and I have a few suggestions (I'll put some playtest notes at the bottom if you're interested). Overall, I think your cards could be more impactful, and I think you need more artifact ramp. You should also add a bit of graveyard hate. I notice that the deck cost is fairly low, so I'll keep my suggestions relatively budget friendly.
Ramp: Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Druidic Satchel, Darksteel Ingot, Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Wayfarer's Bauble, Dreamscape Artist. I would consider adding all of these cards, they will make your deck MUCH faster.
Final dump that I'm too lazy to organize: Phyrexian Reclamation, Drogskol Reaver, Tainted Sigil, Phyrexian Arena, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Wall of Reverence, Defiant Bloodlord, Cliffhaven Vampire, Crypt Ghast, Ashen Rider, Beacon of Immortality, Dig Through Time, Fumigate, Chalice of Life Flip, Sun Droplet
Archangel of Tithes - Too much white, and your mana base isn't great.
Augury Adept - Too easy to block. Far too often this card does nothing.
Bloodbond Vampire - It gets big. Eventually. This is too slow.
Exalted Angel - This is 6 mana for a 4/4 flying lifelink. That is just bad.
Indulgent Tormentor - In EDH, paying the life is too easy.
Mourning Thrull - Uh...yeah. Doesn't really do anything. Change to ramp.
Resolute Archangel - High Cost, and if you're losing, this is not going to make you win except in VERY particular circumstances.
Seraph of Dawn - This is bad.
Tithe Drinker - There are better extort cards, and it's otherwise underwhelming.
Underworld Coinsmith - Slow and low impact.
Ruinous Path - Sorcery Speed.
Entreat the Angels - If this wins you the game, it's be a miracle (hehe). For real though, there are WAY better end game cards. check out
Moonsilver Spear - This is OK. It's slow, it makes tokens. I want every card in a deck to make me smile when I draw it, and this card just makes me go, "Ah, I see."
Steel of the Godhead - This is just kinda OK. Only creature to put it on is Oloro.
Sunbond - Slow and opens you up to being 2 for 1ed.
Sunspring Expedition - If you are going to play a card that only gains you life, it needs to gain you a lot of life. 8 is not a lot of life.
Pulse of the Fields - If an opponent has more life, you're doing something wrong.
Riot Control - Unless this card is great in your meta, it just doesn't belong is most decks. You should be controlling the field enough that this card doesn't do anything.
Samite Ministration - See above.
To the Slaughter - Yes, it can kill a planeswalker. But other than that, most people have a little shit creature they don't care about that they can sacrifice, and this costs 3 mana.
Anyway, I hope deckbuilding goes well! It looks like your building a fun deck. Cheers!
Playtest notes: I playtested against Reaper King stars in MTG: The Clone Wars. Obviously, mine is a MUCH more expensive and tuned deck, so it should win. I chose your deck despite the obvious mismatch because I'm getting some buddies into EDH and I wanted to make a deck that was powerful but didn't overwhelm them. Your deck seemed to roughly match the budget of what they'll be building. Overall, Reaper King lost one game and won three. The loss involved you getting an Elspeth and enough removal to protect her. The wins were mostly because of a lack of graveyard hate, not enough removal, threats that weren't very threatening, and mana issues. I think the mana issues deal was largely a luck thing, as you play enough lands, but some ramp would really smooth that out.

I would also make room for some graveyard hate. Agent of Erebos is pretty good in Alesha decks.
I would also try to play 1-2 more lands.
I'm not sure what exactly I would cut, but I would try to focus your deck on one specific gameplan. Try to concentrate more on your disruptive cards like Stony Silence or your aggressive cards and eliminate whatever doesn't fit that plan. That should also help to make your deck a bit more consistent.

I'm not one to like zombie decks or theme decks but I like this deck. Anyway some suggestions: Agent of Erebos and Withered Wretch for graveyard hate; Apprentice Necromancer, Relentless Dead, and Balthor the Defiled for recursion; Blood Scrivener and Corpse Augur for card draw; Cabal Interrogator to help fuel Waste Not and further disrupt your opponents hand; Corpse Harvester and Corpse Connoisseur because they're both good. If you're looking for suggestions on what to cut I'd suggest: Walking Corpse, Shambling Ghoul, Rancid Rats, and Diregraf Ghoul don't really do anything besides attack and block; Liliana's Indignation because it doesn't seem like there are enough creatures to make it worthwhile; I'm not sure whether or not you need lifegain(if you do ignore these next two suggestions) but Demon's Horn and Whip of Erebos seem like they could come out because the lifegain doesn't look like it's relevant in this deck and zombies generally prefer recursion where they don't get exiled at the end of turn because they usually have so many other ways to get themselves back; You don't seem to have enough sac outlets to really abuse Dictate of Erebos; and I honestly think you could cut yourself back to 37 lands and maybe drop a basic swamp.
Anyway +1 from me.

Corpse Connoisseur is great!
Champion of Stray Souls have you thought this card is too slow
Scourge of Nel Toth is this card too slow
Verdant Force good enough?
if you're trying to combo, maybe Tooth and Nail.

In case you are interested in graveyard interaction, Agent of Erebos might be a good fit. It can really mess up decks like Meren or Karador by repeatedly removing their grave.
As an alternative (or in addition) to Spore Frog, you could play Spike Weaver. The card is more mana intensive, but also more powerful and hoses commanders like Brago or Ydris really good.

Mindslicer is a fantastic tool against blue decks. Setting everyone back to zero cards in hand is ususally great for decks with a strong recursion theme, and really hurts game plans based on Blue Sun's Zenith and Counterspell.
Since you are playing Bojuka Bog, you might also be interested in the creature form, Agent of Erebos.

Elixir of Immortality seems out of place, doesn't that just mess up your own plans? I think you could play a couple more creatures with interactive abilities, such as Caustic Caterpillar, Reclamation Sage, Bone Shredder, Mindslicer, Loaming Shaman, Agent of Erebos or Sunblast Angel.
Also i just noticed the lack of Eternal Witness. That card is way better than Greenwarden of Murasa, you should definitely play it.
