Call to the Grave Discussion

Have you thought to add Call to the Grave? Since Glissa is a zombie she won't be afected by it, and you may get a trigger from Glissa each tourn without doing anything.

I have relatively the same deck. Try adding Noxious Ghoul. With the ammount of zombies you can make, it will almost always win the game.

Also Call to the Grave and Grave Betrayal, they will help even the odds if you are finding it hard to draw into a wincon

Call to the Grave to cause opponents to remove creatures continually (plus it gets rid of hexproof and indestructible creatures). Open the Graves would let you gain zombies if any of your own(non token) zombies happen to die. You could also add some normal removal such as Hero's Downfall. Liliana, Dreadhorde General could provide creature gen as well as card draw. Instead of having 4 Rooftop Storm, you could go down to 1 or 2 and add some tutor spells, since if you draw more than one it becomes a redundant card. Rhystic Tutor is cheaper, but Diabolic Intent and Beseech the Queen are slightly better but cost more. God-Eternal Bontu is nice to have especially if you have tokens to sacrifice for card draw.

Sorry I only suggested black cards!

Oh yea Call to the Grave is a great removal tool. Lord of the Undead to bring zombies back to your hand.

Call to the Grave, even if you have to sac your boss you recast for 5 mana next turn.

Strionic Resonator lets you double your scry/damage.

Traumatize would give you a LOT of zombie choices.

I noticed you didn’t have a Call to the Grave on the list. I wanted to make a mono black zombie deck but it turned into black and blue then green black and blue. This deck looks like fun.

Grinning Totem is a reusable tutor in your deck. Renegade Map is a cheap reasuble ramp card.

Call to the Grave

Instead of always having to cast the artifacts there are a few black cards that allow you to discard X cards for effect. Not sure that would be worth it without reworking the entire deck to let you mill a ton of artifacts into the graveyard though. Still, if everybody has to discard cards you could just keep discarding the same one over and over.
