Suggestions for your mana base:
Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).
Suggestions for draw and card advantage:
It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.
Suggestions for removal spells:
Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

The most powerful thing the zombie tribe has going for it are all the lords. Its what makes a few 2/2 tokens into a scary horde of death. There are ones that pump black creatures and ones that pump zombies to choose from. Some are cheaper than others but these are all around 3$ and under: Hall of Triumph, Bad Moon, Ascendant Evincar, Cemetery Reaper, Metallic Mimic, Paragon of Open Graves
In my experience with using this commander, having too many cards that just recycle dead creatures should be unnecessary with this deck. The whole point of using this commander is that it does that job pretty well already. I would just use a couple of the best.
Personally I found River Kelpie, Secrets of the Dead and Necromancer's Stockpile underwhelming and ineffective in actual gameplay. Almost anything that just normal draws cards is better than them. Graveborn Muse can be such a draw engine you have to kill it after a few turns but its amazing. I also love Curse of Shallow Graves its so great. And lastly, Conspiracy is nuts, it makes it so you can cast any creature from your graveyard and the commander gets pumped from zombie lords then too. Happy gathering!

Expedition Map is the best land tutor available to you. Scourge of Nel Toth is a great flying zombie, and he seems great to recur for cheap and sac to gisa every turn too. I like Curse of Shallow Graves and Ascendant Evincar a lot in my zombie deck. Just making sure you noticed the infinite combo you run too, Phyrexian Altar, Gravecrawler, & Vengeful Dead. I've seen some zombie lists more focused on achieving that combo. I don't have an altar or i would run it. Heres a link to mine check it out..

Ascendant Evincar and Night of Souls' Betrayal help make sure your opponents can't keep their birds or other small creatures. Though you may want to add some one sided +/+ effects if you use those. Jace, Unraveler of Secrets ult is slow to get to but works great with Guile, Nullstone Gargoyle also great with guile. Rule of Law is a solid way to lock a game down with unraveler or a partial lock with some of the other things.

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.
Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.
Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.
that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

To start off, sorry if this is in the wrong forum, I'm new here.
For a while I've been wondering if there was a "true" undefeatable board state. For me, that means that you start the game with whatever you want in play, with no cards in your hand, graveyard, deck, or exile. Your opponent starts out with a deck with no restrictions and has to try to win the game. Also, you are not allowed to interact with anything in the game (such as activating a scepter). Ideally, you opponent would be able to play things as well (e.g. no combos that prevent players from having hands, playing lands, etc.)
Currently, I have a setup that I think will work, and I want to see if there are any cards that I have overlooked. Here is what I currently have:
Platinum Angel - fairly obvious, prevents decking/lethal damage
Mycosynth Lattice - necessary for many upcoming cards
Darksteel Forge - all your stuff is indestructible
Indomitable Archangel - all your stuff has shroud
Tajuru Preserver - prevents stuff like annihilator
AEther Storm - for Bane of the Living, Ixidron, Crovax, Ascendant Hero or Ascendant Evincar, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Magus of the Tabernacle, Kataki, War's Wage, Avatar of Slaughter + Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch etc.
I'd love to replace one of either AEther Storm or Narset Transcendent because having both means that opponents are unable to cast any sort of spell, which I feel goes against the spirit of the impenetrable pillow fort.
Please let me know if you have anything that you think can get through this. Thanks :D

Ok, I've made some changes with what I had on hand. Here's what I've done so far:
Now, as I acquire some of the other cards, I'll need to decide what stays and what goes. What should I switch out for Buried Alive at this point? I do have a Jet Medallion, but do I really need it? Hopefully I'll get some play testing done with it this weekend and see how it goes.

For graveyard recursion Beacon of Unrest because, it's a good reusable spell.
