You could try Archetype of Imagination in lieu of Levitation if your opponent is going for flying. I know it diminishes the no-creatures aspect of the deck but it's half enchantment so it sorta counts lol. It's really the only useful suggestion I could make. I'm not familiar with the vintage/casual playstyles to offer meta-specific advice but it seems like a neat deck to play. +1

take out Traveler's Amulet . it only fetches the land it won't put you up a land drop so it'd be too slow. also your curve is a little high so that could be problematic. I would take our Riptide Chimera and Sea God's Revenge to add more Divination

i don't play alot of standard, but if you are serious about flyers I would play a couple of Archetype of Imagination and alot of small cheap cost creatures.

Hypnotic Siren is expensive for bestow, not a fan of as a four of.

Genesis Hydra makes an awesome card for this deck, especially if you can ramp into him as he can fish out another permanent like kiora or polukranos that can't be countered (since genesis activates on cast, not enter the battlefield)

kiora you don't need 4 of, even if krakens are cool, they are late game finishers.

Archetype of Imagination if you want to make things really scary. "oh, ya... those krakens can fly now too... hehehe."

Prophet of Kruphix always in a UG deck... its too good to not use considering you can combo another creature during your opponent's next turn, always have mana open for a counter spell, and give your creatures pseudo vigilance.

see my deck, Kiora found a hydra for more ideas from a green player perspective of UG monsters.

I was already considering Archetype of Imagination ; the problem is finding room for it.

Living Death is considered.

I don't like Geralf's Messenger . Sure, it has 3 black devotion (actually, that's part of it: the 3 black mana symbols), but it doesn't do anything spectacular. It enters tapped, and the life loss is only 1 opponent.

The deck was originally strictly zombies, so it was no to the Grave Titan at first. I'll consider it, but it helps if I can do something with the tokens.

Archetype of Imagination Not a zombie but it will get all your guys through guaranteed.

Living Death Since you will likely be susceptible to board wipes, this will put you right back into good position. Also nuts with all your zombie/devotion ETBs.

Geralf's Messenger Why not? Decent life loss effect, and can be recurred quite a bit with all your reanimation.

No Grave Titan !?!? He's the king of zombie token puking!

Glad to see the gravecrawler/grimgrin/rooftop combo, love it.

Yisan would be too slow for this deck, but have you tried Archetype of Imagination ? By far the best Archetype and with all the ramp should be easy to cast. The ability to take away flying from Desecration Demon , Stormbreath Dragon , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Master of the Feast , etc, etc, etc is just so good. I run the Archetype in my Simic deck and it dominates every time. If anything, your opponent will scramble to try to get rid of it, providing a distraction for your other pieces to thrive.
