Do you think Diregraf Colossus beats out Cemetery Reaper? He can still make tokens out of your opponent's dead creatures, and serves as an additional way to pump everyone up.

Thanks for the feedback! I’ll be sure to give them a thought but right off I can tell you I’ve thought about Undead Alchemist but I don’t like that it exiles what I want to copy from peoples graves. I feel the same way about Cemetery Reaper but I can choose what to exile with this.

This is a really cool deck! Zombies are really amazing, and it looks like you have a very competitive version of them.

What made you pick the Zombie lords over other lords, such as Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Accursed, Lord of the Undead, and Risen Executioner? Or other Zombies-matter cards, like Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Plague Belcher, and Graveborn Muse.

If you're looking for crazy, kind of out-there ideas, it might be worth checking out Helldozer, Army of the Damned, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Grave Titan, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Liliana, Death's Majesty, or Necromancer's Stockpile.

Lifebane Zombie, Stillmoon Cavalier, Shamble Back, Celestial Purge, and even Selfless Spirit could make good SB additions.

I'm fascinated by Withered Wretch and Revoke Existence. What brought you to choose them over more traditional choices?

I'm even more interested as to why you didn't choose Path to Exile, considering that nearly every other brew out there running white uses it. Lack of slots? Helps opponent too much? Does it not synergize like Fatal Push does?

Also, what are your thoughts on Blue for zombie decks? There are plenty of good cards

Finally, your mana base. I'd consider taking out Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Bloodstained Mire, and a couple Swamps for Marsh Flats, a Plains, and ~2 Mutavaults. The Plains allows for you to cast stuff with a Blood Moon on the field, or fix your mana after getting a creature Path to Exiled. Also, Concealed Courtyards might be worth checking out, since you're so low to the ground. They're rotating out of Standard soon as well.

Sorry for the wall of text full of stuff you probably thought of before! Thanks for posting your deck!

So first of all, you aren't running enough creatures. 12 is less than what a midrange deck like Jund runs. You need to hit the critical mass to make your lords good and stuff. Even with Sarco and Salvation it is only 17 which is way too low.

Secondly Sarcomancy and Herald's Horn haven't been put in any modern legal sets so you can't get those.

Really I think zombies benefits from Cryptbreaker, Gravecrawler and Dread Wanderer not to be running them. Dread Wanderer at least lets you restart your board with Gravecrawler.

Diregraf Colossus is probably too slow. It just eats a path, and when you play in on turn 3 it will be a 2/2 ideally. Door of Destiny also fails by the same hurdle. Obelisk of Urd doesn't shore up any match up, and the time spent tapping out for it is generally equal to 1 attack which you could of made if you didn't tap out for it. Endless Ranks requires a board to be decent and doesn't shore up any of the decks issues.

As for lords, Lord of the Accursed is your best bet in mono black. Gravecrawler/Dread return themselves. Relentless Dead returns everything else. Lord lets you force through damage a lot better. Cemetery Reaper is also worth a consideration as it eats graveyard stuff to turn off reanimator style decks, while also making 3/3 tokens.

Damnation could go in the sideboard, as mainboard you want everything to feed into your beat down plan.

Sign in Blood is probably OK, but consider adding Smuggler's Copter, as a psudo haste for zombies, as well as letting you go through your deck quicker and you can always discard the returnable stuff.

Liliana's Reaver fails the bolt test and isn't that good really for a 4 drop that needs to connect. Lingering Souls sees too much play as well. Plague Belcher might be a better option. a 5/4 menace if you let, say, gravecrawler eat the -1/-1 counters and it makes board wipes and removal painful.

I love tribal decks. I think they're highly underutilised these days (except Elves and Merfolk) +1 from me, seems like a fun deck.

Here are some cards to think about.

Budget: Diregraf Captain, Ammit Eternal, Liliana's Reaver, Unbreathing Horde

Bordline Budget:Grave Crawler, Cemetery Reaper, Relentless Dead

Non-Budget: Death Baron, Geralf's Messenger, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead

Noosegraf Mob for more zombies

Grave Titan might be too pricey but if not it is also a great option

Zombies also have a lot of lords that you can take advantage of, namely:

Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief, Diregraf Captain, Graf Harvest, and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed are all strong

Eldrazi Monument, Door of Destinies, and Obelisk of Urd give more buffs.

Patriarch's Bidding and Zombie Apocalypse will both bring all your zombies back.

Rooftop Storm is also great

Zombies are a very well supported tribe, so you can make a very strong and fun deck. Have fun :)
