Thanks for the card siggestions. There are some good ones listed.

Entomb is one of those cards I haven't gotten ahold of yet.

Living Death seems like it could be a game winning card.

Corpse Connoisseur was in the list in the past. I think he got taken out for Combo pieces.

Golgari Grave-Troll was also in the past list. I think he too was removed for more combo pieces.

Again, thatnks for the input. You have given me some things to ponder.

Entomb would help a lot with consistency.

Living Death and Corpse Connoisseur would be great especially the corpse connoisseur since you could continuously cast him to keep getting more dudes into your grave. living death is great especially if you have sac outlets so you can guarantee you don't sacrifice any creatures and then you get them all back which can overwhelm your opponents with etb triggers and your massive board vs their not so massive board.

Golgari Grave-Troll (more on the expensive side) and Stinkweed Imp are great ways to get creatures into your grave to increase consistency and ggt is a great body that you can play late game and keep on the board for a while.

Scourge of Nel Toth would be a good consideration as a self recurring creature. Dread Summons is an amazing way to fill your grave and amass a huge army of zombies (the card is seriously bonkers).

Dread Return and/or Unburial Rites wouldnt be bad either but not needed as much, just more ways to reanimate creatures without your commander out or so you can do more than 1 creature a turn.

Howdy! I agree with the Entomb and Buried Alive. Since you can recur creatures easily though, how about Corpse Connoisseur?

Also, I like the high-CMC theme of the creatures if youre planning on using Sheoldred to get them out, but... GOTTA have Strionic Resonator in there to double up on her triggers. Not only can you get out TWO creatures per turn, in a pinch you can make your opponent sacrifice two creatures as well. I have a spare in Korean if you're interested.

Also, Mimic Vat works fantastic with her ability and Nim Deathmantle is a greast card to keep her alive. Trust me, Shelly is going to be a BIG target. Deathmantle is an instant wat to bring her back but your opponents might not know... that it triggers for EACH creature that dies... so if they boardwipe you, you can pay four for each creature you want to bring back!!!!!

Buried Alive and Corpse Connoisseur are decent substitutes for Entomb, and will give you a solid tutor for your threats.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a strong card in mono-black. The ability to bring him back multiple times with Shelodred makes him all the more deadly.

Well at first glance (if this were my deck) I would say lower your creature count by about 10.

Raise your land count by 8 and add mana fixing Command Tower Shimmering Grotto the guildgates like Dimir Guildgate and some fetching like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse. I would also add more ramp especially in black to be able to raise the graveyard Black Market is an easy include. Then there is Manalith and the signets like Dimir Signet. You have two pieces of an infinite mana combo already Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle you could add Cathodion for colorless mana.

You can take advantage of blue card draw with Rhystic Study and black tutors with Diabolic Tutor Corpse Connoisseur and you can exploit Sidisi, Undead Vizier to herself and recast her giving you a recurable tutors.

Finally I would add a few boardwipes Cyclonic Rift Plague Wind Damnation and Toxic Deluge

I hope this helps and keep me updated on your changes and how it runs.

If you want to get key creatures into the graveyard then may I recommend Corpse Connoisseur. To make your creatures undying add Cauldron of Souls. Just a few ideas otherwise nice deck I love graveyard play.
