Shade's Form is definitely one to look at to get extra Gary triggers. Unhallowed Pact, Unholy Indenture, Undying Evil, Supernatural Stamina, and Abnormal Endurance are some others you might look into.

Liliana's Specter, Faceless Butcher, Cadaver Imp, and Lost Legion are some two devotion creatures to consider. Soldevi Adnate is nuts with Gary too.

Defile is a good removal option.

Syphon Mind would be a good draw spell.

Suggestions for removal / maybeboard:

Suggestions for additions:

Worldgorger Dragon + Animate Dead / Dance of the Dead forms an infinite loop that you can cancel at any time. The loop blinks all of your lands into exile temporarily, allowing you to tap them before they blink out. This can be used to create infinite mana. Worldgorger Dragon isn't a good card on it's own, but it combos well with Buried Alive and your Gravebreaker Lamia. Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead are great any time because they can target creatures in anyone's GY.

Out:

Kaya's Ghostform Epic Downfall Tomb Robber Soot Imp Pack Rat Cadaver Imp

In: Insidious Dreams - Helps assemble combos

Animate Dead - cheap recursion that should've been in there

Night's Whisper - cheap hand refill

Necropotence - Well I'll succumb to goodstuffs here.

Black Market - things die and profit from board wipes.

Coldsteel Heart - is very needed

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

Other cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting (no order):

An interesting list!

More Card advantage creatures: Soul of the Harvest , Harvester of Souls , Masked Admirers , Garruk's Horde , and Garruk's Packleader .

More sacrifice creatures: Ghoulcaller Gisa , Bontu the Glorified , Dimir House Guard , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Krav, the Unredeemed , and Razaketh, the Foulblooded .

More ramp creatures: Dawntreader Elk , Ondu Giant , Veteran Explorer , Primal Druid , Burnished Hart , and Wild-Field Scarecrow .

More recursion creatures: Cadaver Imp , Deadwood Treefolk , Den Protector , Dutiful Attendant , and Gravedigger .

I would look at lowering/smoothing out your curve, I have found it helps improve the functionality of a deck.

You have a lot of sorceries. They're not necessarily bad, but they are taking up space where zombies could be. You can get rid of innocent blood (use fleshbag marauder instead), aether snap, twilight's call, life's finale

You don't really need vensor's journal or whispersilk cloak. You don't really have big creatures that do anything on combat damage to a player.

For instants I think tendrils of corruption, grasp of darkness, murder, go for the throat, and doom blade do well in mono black

And you got some jank creatures. What is that vulture? no. No dross hopper, no gangrenous zombies, no zombie brute, gutless ghoul is kind of crap, you have a lot of things with activated abilities and I just don't think you're going to be using them that much.

You also don't have card draw. You have a sign in blood and that's it really. Black has some good pay with life card draw cards.

You have the sanguine bond/exquisite blood combo, but your sanguine bond is completely useless. You don't gain any life except from vensor's journal and you don't have much card draw, so it's not going to do much.

Good zombie cards to add: Fleshbag Marauder (so good with mikaeus) Ghoulcaller Gisa Ghoulraiser Graf Harvest Grave Betrayal Grave Defiler Graveborn Muse Gravecrawler Infernal Caretaker josu vess Liliana's Mastery Lord of the Accursed Maalfeld Twins Necromancer's Stockpile Necromantic Selection Noosegraf Mob Open the Graves Grave Titan Liliana's Reaver Cadaver Imp Corpse Connoisseur Accursed Horde Archdemon of Unx cemetary recruitment Cryptbreaker Diregraf Colossus Doomed Dissenter Empty the Pits (is hilarious) Ever After Overseer of the Damned Plague Belcher Rakshasa Gravecaller Relentless Dead Risen Executioner Rot Hulk Shepherd of Rot Stir the Sands Zombie Infestation

I think I have some of these. You can have them if I do
