Army of the Damned Discussion
1 week ago
Thx for the comments guys, very much appreciated! :D
Gadianten I considered Army of the Damned but I honestly did not like it in here, it would create too many Zombies. Divine Reckoning , Deep Analysis and Big Game Hunter are really cool, I will consider it. The other cards are have been considered already, but as I mentioned I don't like to play Tutors or too many reanimator effects.
Skulloelegy Wow I did not know this existed, thank you I will add it immediately!

I would play more cards that interact with the draw and discard abiliy of your commander such as Army of the Damned , Deep Analysis , Divine Reckoning , Dread Return , Increasing Ambition , Unburial Rites , Dralnu, Lich Lord and Big Game Hunter .

Here are some big bomby cards you could try getting/using. most of them have to do with milling.

I mean if it works better in your play groups then do it! I just love Twilight Drover + Teysa, Orzhov Scion a lot! It helps me in slower games and I can't wait to see it work with Teysa Karlov . Oh I think I forgot to mention Requiem Angel since she only cares about it being a spirit or not, you don't seem to have any spirits besides the dragons. So Elendra's vampires, Wurmcoil's wurms, if you ever run Army of the Damned etc. I know you aren't as token focused as I am though. I think Vampiric Rites would be good in this.

I haven't done a lot of research on zombies, but I learned from my old token deck that it takes a lot of trial and error to get the balance between token producers, pump spells, and abusers.
I think you haven't taken as much advantage of the colors you have. Green has a lot of cards that syngerize with tokens and white has the best removal and board wipes
I haven't looked at prices with these suggestions. Also, you don't have to listen to me at all
Josu Vess, Lich Knight - With green to help you ramp, this deck has a better chance of kicking him than other zombie decks. Open the Graves - More Tokens. Underrealm Lich - Card draw is always good. Varina, Lich Queen - Card draw, more tokens, and some lifegain to help keep you healthy for those life costs. Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, etc - I always feel like land ramp is more reliable than artifact ramp, especially in green, but this is just preference. You do seem to be lacking a bunch of ramp to keep those activated abilities from slowing you down. Death Baron - Another lord, but gives deathtouch too Carrion Feeder - Free sac outlet, if you are looking for one.
Pontiff of Blight - If you have solid ramp, giving all your creatures extort can get really dumb. Graveborn Muse - Might kill, but you will draw your entire deck with the right board state. Risen Executioner - Another lord with recursion Corpse Harvester - Tutor a zombie and a land. Noxious Ghoul - Could be spicy 1 sided board wipe Phyrexian Crusader - Possible 1 shot, but only if you have the right amount of pump. Shepherd of Rot - Could kill everyone. Good way to get around pillow fort and fogs. Raving Dead - Fun spice. Balthor the Defiled - Pretty good recursion. Right now Archetype of Imagination is the only non black creature. Dralnu, Lich Lord - You don't have that many instants and sorceries, but what you do have is strong. I think it reduces Army of the Damned's Flashback. Boneknitter - Tribal protection. Anguished Unmaking, Swords to Plowshares, Counterspell etc - some single target removal is always useful, and you are in amazing colors for it. I have this problem with my dragon deck. Second Harvest, Parallel Evolution - One time token doublers Craterhoof Behemoth, Overrun, Triumph of the Hordes - Ends games. Bramble Sovereign - Not a zombie, but this can do WORK. City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool - 4 colors needs as much color fixing as possible. Esper Panorama - OK fetchland Krosan Verge - Underestimated fetch imo Fecundity - Crazy card draw Austere Command Merciless Eviction Cleansing Nova - A few more wipes. But these let you interact with artifacts and enchantments that this deck does not seem to do well.
Stronghold Assassin - effects like Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, and even Attrition are just better. Archetype of Imagination - I appreciate that you are trying to deal with a weakness in the deck while giving your creatures evasion. But, aren't zombie's looking to die for LTB effects? It also costs a lot. Grave Betrayal - Costs a bit too much for me, but a strong effect. I'm up in the air about this. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Might be rough to cast in 4 colors Conspiracy - I might be missing something, but almost all of your creatures are zombies already. Skullbriar, the Walking Grave - Just seems like a beat stick that is hard to pump up. Vulturous Zombie - easier to pump up, but still feels like just another beat stick.

Okay some suggestions, you said you had problems with removal. Cards off the top of my head although maybe a little pricey but luckily there was reprints.
One card I also really love in dimir is Havengul Lich, as long you have the mana you can recast your cards in the grave, not only yours but opponents as well.
One card that is also an outlet is Josu Vess, Lich Knight, better than Army of the Damned imo. Graveborn Muse is also another steady card draw. Crypt Ghast doesn't go with theme but really helps you get that mana in a pinch. Vengeful Dead is a great card if you like your zombies dying and keep coming back and dying again xD. Shepherd of Rot is a fun card to play with as well, which can synergize with a Rooftop Storm and deal an ungodly amount of damage. Oversold Cemetery can also help since you will most likely have plenty of stuff in your grave.
Hopefully these suggestions help buddy!
