Call to the Grave Discussion

I love zombies! and this deck is basic which means its not to hard for ANYONE WITH BASIC KNOWLEDGE OF MAGIC CAN PICK IT UP AND PLAY.
Some suggestions are Call to the Grave for removal can help get rid of pesky creatures your opponent controls making them sac them! One of my favorite non-zombie zombie support cards Grave Titan makes token and hes a beat-stick as it is. Liliana's Reaver is an awesome zombie that if left unchecked will cause your friends lots of misery!
if you want to add blue to spice things up you'll have access to counterspells along with one of my favorite zombie lords Diregraf Captain along with a decent flyer which zombies normally don't have in Siren of the Silent Song who helps get cards out of your opponents hands and if you like the effect of Grimoire of the Dead can help you fill the yard with lots of targets for mass zombification!!!!

I personally would trade out Dreamstealer for Lich Lord of Unx. I feel dreamstealer eternalize is a bit too steep of a cost for what it does when you can simply just exile it to make a 2/2 zombie token. Call to the Grave, Grimoire of the Dead, Liliana, Death's Majesty, and Zombie Infestation are good considerations also.

Appreciate the recommendations. Do or Die $1.79 will be a bit tough, can hit several creatures, but probably miss the creature that the real problem.
Call to the Grave $1.00 is nice because it's recursive in nature, wish I had more Zombie to support it, but Glissa, the Traitor I try and keep her on the board, have to evaluate a financial cut to make this fit.

Randomsome1 In Regards to Conspiracy there are a few creatures that i would like to not lose if i get Call to the Grave running. Gisa and Geralf Ghoulcaller Gisa The Scarab God Archetype of Imagination Necromaster Dragon(he may get cut anyway) and creatures i would potentially steal with the effect of Coffin Queen Tho i may take out Call to the Grave then i can remove Conspiracy as well all in all my original beck building ideas for this deck was for fun mainly not to make it super competitive tho who the heck who try to be competitive with a 4 color zombies? and the land bases are tough for a 4 color deck i am going to adjust it accordingly after i get the rest of the cards situated so i know how much of what i need

I would recommend the following cards, assuming you are going for a mono black tribal zombie deck
Death Baron - deathtouch is cool
Grave Titan - not a zombie himself, but a great generator of them
Lord of the Undead - Bump and graveyard return
Undead Warchief - Cheaper and more painful zombies
Diregraf Colossus - Speaks for itself
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - Give's everything but humans you control undying (and is a zom)
Plague Belcher - Neat Lad
Call to the Grave - Probably never leaves the battlefield via sac, totally ruins opponents board presence until they can destroy it
Some Tribal necessities too:
Cavern of Souls - Though if money is tight don't even bother
That's all I can think of for now, let me know if you want more recommendations for cards to add. As for the cards you currently have, I would recommend the following:
Remove Liliana's Mastery - 5 Mana for a bump and zombie, seems to me like there are better options

I think stax-y, control-y might be a good way to go with this. Your commander could tutor for cards like Call to the Grave, Bottomless Pit, and Doom Blade. Once you have a decent lock on the board state, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion could be your finisher.

Runed Stalactite makes your boss a zombie for zombie bonuses.
Your zombies will die. Your boss can bring back zombies. You have to protect your boss in case of multiple exiles. Alexi's Cloak effectively counters whatever was going to kill him then gives him shroud. Neurok Stealthsuit can do the same. Swiftfoot Boots etc.
Does that planeswalker actually help?
