Hello there! I like what you did to your deck. I also went went down that road on buying a per made deck and making it better a lot better. There are some cards I would suggest. The first one is Filth combo with Buried Alive or Jarad's Orders witch you have. Second is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth but it is expensive cheap fix is Zombie Trailblazer. Third Corpse Harvester and or Necrotic Ooze they are fun cards in this deck

I'm trying to for Sheoldred, the Whispering One Arcane Adaptation Corpse Harvester in but I'm not sure what to take out. Also, is Reanimate worth putting in?

About the cards you discussed:

Lich Lord of Unx very underwhelming, got rid of it long time ago, never really liked the cards

Kindred Discovery is perfect card draw actually. And it works the moment you put it on the table and attack

Consuming Aberration Can be really strong if there are no defences but it could be chumped for turns, left my decklist long time ago

Corpse Harvester - Tutors up my zombie combo (either Sidisi or Gravecrawler) and also guarantee you a land drop

Thran Dynamo - The deck is very mana hungry so I play every good ramp possible. Never actually played flash enablers, I think they are quite redundant

Propaganda - I prefer another boardwipe instead since you can reanimate all the creatures later

MizzMizz:Somethimes I like the Lich Lord of Unx. Propaganda will definitely help you, but I don't like stuff that strictly doesn't support the Deck Strategy (of course stuff like Rhystic Study is too good to leave). I think Propaganda is dependent on your meta. I have lots of small and many creature decks so it will perform better here. How about Arcane Adaptation ? It will be useful as long as Scarab is in play and since we run some stuff like Mikaeus, Sheoldred and Grave Titan we sure as hell want more Zombies. Corpse Harvester may be worth a slot too? I'll playtesting him tomorrow.Consuming Aberration seems to underperform too. Since we never have lots of Zombies in a GY he is dependent on the Mill you run, the more, the better he gets...

Hey, Ive been testing the deck quite a bit and came up with a final version of mine I think. Basically I decided to go for the combo as a main wincon. The deck is able to pull off a win without it simply by drain, attacking and attrition but I usually resolve one of my combos and use all the zombies and general just to stall a bit and draw my cards. So combos I play are:

1) Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler + Altar of Dementia - infinite mill

2) Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Diregraf Captain/Altar of the Brood/Diregraf Colossus - infinite mill/life loss/zombie tokens

3) Rooftop Storm + Havengul Lich + sac outlet (reccuring Gary/Marauder/Sidisi)

4) Mindcrank + Duskmantle Guildmage - infinite mill

5) Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension - infinite mill if Ascension is active

6) Notion Thief + Windfall/Whispering Madness - draw ton of cards and discard all opponents

7) Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Torment of Hailfire - huge drain

Some other good synergies I use:

1) Corpse Harvester + Arcane Adaptation

2) Cyclonic Rift + Windfall/Whispering Madness

3) Lord of the Undead + Arcane Adaptation

I also tend to play more counterspells (6) and board wipes (3 + O-Stone) as my main goal is to combo out.

Some other cards I really like in the deck:

1) Yawgmoth's Will - Useful is your non-creature combo piece gets destroyed

2) Snapcaster Mage - Crazy good with reanimation

3) Hostage Taker and Aura Thief - one of few ways how to get rid of/steal some enchantments and artifacts

4) Necropotence - much better than Phyrexian Arena in the deck

5) Muddle the Mixture - Both counter and tutor for a combo piece.

Hey, looks good, but I suggest more draw.

Budget draw to consider:

Sign and Whisper, draw two for two mana is good. Muse and Breaker might be the best budget Zombies for draw each is repeatable and they count toward their own abilities. Both also get better as you create and play more Zombies which is great with the Zombie Kalitas strategy.

Other budget cards to consider:

Even though Ghast isn't a Zombie it's a budget staple with black because of how well it can make mana. Harvester is a Zombie who's a repeatable Zombie and Swamp tutor. Animate and Victimize two of the best budget staple reanimation spells in black.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Disentomb
  • From Under the Floorboards
  • Rise from the Grave
  • Corrupt

  • Abattoir Ghoul
  • Gravedigger
  • Maalfeld Twins
  • Noosegraf Mob

  • Graf Harvest
  • Curse of Shallow Graves

Good luck with your deck.

I play legacy zombies. Unless you play zombardment (not a true zombie tribal) they are pretty weak. Legacy is a brutal format and elves/gobs seem to be the main viable tribals. That being said I love the direction you took with your legacy zombs, way different than the way I went.

I do think 4x Gravecrawler with 3-4x Buried Alive is probably one of the most synergistic combos for a zombie tribal, especially with the mana ramp like Dark Ritual you have in there. I also think that if you are playing monoblack like this you should ABUSE the discard power black has with Thoughtseize or Hymn to Tourach. One of the most broken black cards in the format Reanimate or Animate Dead if you want budget is great with zombies as well. With these you have some nasty potential for turns 1-2 to either force and opponent to discard a powerful creature card and reanimate it on your side, or t1 start shitting out gravecrawlers from your yard and overwhelm. A turn 1 Buried Alive will also be great to fuel your graveyard for dropping a very early Gurmag Angler if you have to.

Relentless Dead is obscenely overpowered, especially with Corpse Harvester.

I have been playing with Smallpox recently, and it could have some potential.

Diregraf Colossus is nuts for zombies.

Since you are going hard ramp, 4x Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is great. Read the Bones is a good draw over Night's Whisper and Sign in Blood as well imo.

Bloodghast, Death Baron.

You have the same amount of land I ran in a GoN elves deck, which doesn't seem right.

Relentless Dead seems so insanely powerful for zombies, especially with stuff like Corpse Harvester out to not include in the main list.
