In my deck I run a Rooftop Storm and Arcane Adaptation you can choose zombies and amplify Scarab God's impactAlso Army of the Damned is an absurdly good card for this deck and if you want to keep the graveyard theme Bone Dancer is a good choice

Whoah first time anyones made suggestions on any of my decks,so i'll do my best to go over why i've made many of the decisions I've made.

First off my plan is a mix of damage and mill using mill in order to steal from an opponents graveyard with the cards Geth, Lord of the Vault ,Bone Dancer,and the big one Hedonist's Trove, plus wanting my opponents to have a large graveyard to make Consuming Aberration big makes my amount of graveyard hate somewhat small with only Bojuka Bogas a full grave exile and Crypt Incursion getting rid of all creatures and serve as my only real source of life gain.

as for Corpse Harvester i currently have 3 non specialized tutors though i may consider it over Sidisi, Undead Vizier due to it being reusable.

I may look for a place for Forgotten Creation as my card draw isn't perfect.

As for reanimation i have several reusable reanimation sources and a creature that can be recurred at any time namely Gravecrawler.

I have considered Soulless One but i feel i don't need both it and Consuming Aberration and i simply think the aberration is better(although i may look for a place for it,it is in my maybe board for a reason).

As for Dread Summons i have tried to avoid self milling as i lack artifact,enchantment and land recursion outside of Psychic Spiral

Finally I unfortunately can't play Crypt Ghast as it has white mana in its color identity and therefore can't be used with either my current commander or your suggestion of Phenax,God of Deception .

Thanks for your suggestions I really,genuinely appreciate them but i won't be able to use most of them for some of the reasons above. I'll make a more elaborate description explaining my deck and it's stratagems in the future.

But for now thanks for the feedback and have a fantastic day.

I have a similar deck except the commander is Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and it is full of clones. Some cards you might like are Memory Plunder, Grip of Phyresis, Evil Twin, Lord of the Void, and Bone Dancer (if you have a way to make this unblockable).

Joumba Hey man, thanks for the +1!

Actually, I already have a Zombie Master on the waiting list (even without the Swampwalk, the abillity to regenerate my guys is quite necessary here), but I'm not sure what to take away to put it, any suggestion?

As for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, I can't afford it as of now... :(

Anyway, that's a cool combo (didn't thought of Bone Dancer before) and will try to make it happen on the future for this deck!

Nice deck sir, a naga interested by zombie is a sweet combination. +1

A little combo suggestion here :Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Zombie Master makes all your zombies unblockable. You can also add a Bone Dancer for the free graveyard pick-up.!

anyways, good luck and have fun!

TheHamster on Blue/Black Zombie Tribal EDH

Abattoir Ghoul, Apprentice Necromancer, Blood Scrivener, Bone Dancer, Boneknitter, Carrion Feeder, Diregraf Colossus, Frankenstein's Monster, Gempalm Polluter (this one is a MUST for zombie decks), Ghastly Remains, Gloomdrifter, Gravespawn Sovereign, Khabal Ghoul, Risen Executioner, Shepherd of Rot (another zombie must), Vengeful Dead (yet another needed additon). In addition I agree with the comment Ridley006 made about needing more recursion and i'll add the suggestion of Necromancy.

Things you're currently running that i would suggest taking out for either new suggestions or things on your maybeboard, Black Cat, Graveborn Muse (amazing draw engine but trust me, it could end you faster than you intended.), Phenax, God of Deception (i get it, mill is fun, although it's not the most strategic option in EDH), Possessed Skaab, Returned Phalanx, Undead Alchemist, this should be a good start for you. hope it helped :)

Joumba on Grimgrin, The Zombie Lord

Hey mate nice deck!

With grimgrin, you gotta consider playing Intruder Alarm : it is amazing to control the battlefield plus it makes life with grimgrin so much easier!

Also, think about the amazing combo that is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth coupled with Bone Dancer and Zombie Master. Not only does the master and the tomb makes all your zombie unblockable and regenerative, the dancer can give you creatures for free!

I also got a sweet grimgrin deck, Mind-eaters like squishy juices,I wanna propose you many cards, but I don't know if your budget allows it, so come check it out ;)

Zimmers_0 on Budget Gisa EDH

If you are going zombie tribal, here are some suggestions Undead Warchief, Soulless One, Vengeful Dead Empty the Pits, and Bone Dancer.

Otherwise I would suggest going a bit of control like Hero's Downfall or Painful Quandary. Also Board whips are a must in edh so Deathbringer Regent and Decree of Pain since you are doing a budget. Shouldnt be hard to ramp into if you have Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers

All under 4$ and most about a buck.
