Hello MadEngie,
first of all: I love your list, it helps me with my manabase when creating decks a lot :)
I recommend this list to friends when they are stuck with their manabase.

Please add following cards:
Scry Lands:

From the last expansions:
Modern Horizon 1; "Horizon" or "Canopy" Lands ( named after Horizon Canopy ) :

Throne of Eldraine:

also do you mind adding this link to your description: Channelfireball Mana Evaluation, it helped me a lot when deciding how many Lands and how many and what colours to play.

If you're playing aggro, you want 4 Blooming Marsh and probably 0 Quagmire. Advocate is probably not very good here if you're running only 23 lands because it will be very difficult to get to 6 lands in Pioneer. I would also drop Field of Ruin because, again, you're an aggro deck simply trying to clock your opponent. There aren't any threatening lands in the format to warrant a slot to a colorless mana source. I would Max out on Knight of the Ebon Legion and Scrapheap Scrounger .

Here's what I would change: -4 Sylvan Advocate -1 Scavenging Ooze -1 Tireless Tracker -2 Questing Beast -1 Liliana, the Last Hope -1 Vraska, Golgari Queen -3 Fatal Push -1 Collective Brutality -2 Field of Ruin -2 Hissing Quagmire

+4 Llanowar Elves +2 Pelt Collector +2 Lovestruck Beast +4 Scrapheap Scrounger +1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet +2 Blooming Marsh +1 Castle Locthwain +1 Llanowar Wastes

As for the Sideboard, you probably don't need Plague anymore, since Field of the Dead is.. well, dead. I would honestly set it up for what you most expect to play against. X number of Duress, Graveyard hate (Ashiok/Leyline of the Void/Scooze), Artifact hate (Reclamation Sage), Creature hate (Cast Down/Doom Blade/Languish/Cry of the Carnarium). There will still be some Nissa/Big Mana decks you'll have to look out for.

I would suggest dropping 2 Diregraf Ghoul (Leaving you still with 10 1 drops) and adding 2 more Thoughtseize . Depending on your meta, I would also suggest Fatal Push over Spark Harvest . Also adding 1 or 2 Castle Locthwain over swamps costs nothing and may win you a game or 2. 2-4 Liliana, Untouched By Death would help with your late game. You may be able to cut Dark Salvation for it.

I like the deck! The Zombie tribe is one of my favorites.

Zuzur: Castle Locthwain has the purpose of drawing more cards while Desolate Lighthouse does not.
I'd propose to cut one Blood Crypt or one Basic Land.
Test it out and see how it goes for you :)

cyeRunner : Thanks alot for your suggestion ! Nope, I didn't think about it. But now that you showed it to me, I will probably think of replace my Castle Locthwain for 1 Desolate Lighthouse definitely ;) Thanks !

Hey match_lighter thank you for your comment and suggestions !

I tried the full playset of Inkmoth Nexus but i was often color screwed, this is why i decided to cut one. However, i agree about Castle Locthwain and i will run a second copy.

How could i have forgotten Unearth ? I will definitively run it too !

Wow! This is a pretty brew. Starting with your lands, after playtesting I think you can make it with the full four Inkmoth Nexus , secondly I enjoy Castle Locthwain as much as the next guy, you might consider upping it to two since it is not legendary. You might also consider Shizo, Death's Storehouse it gets your creatures through and acts as a plain swamp unless you board in Blood Moon .

As far as winning goes your deck feels solid, the only card I might suggest is Unearth or Claim / Fame the former can reanimate any creature you are currently running, whilst the latter can get only two, but has the upside of also pumping your plague carriers.

Carry on brewing and again, awesome deck!
