Cover of Darkness and Coat of Arms to help zombie tribal.

Unclaimed Territory the new tribal command Tower and Unholy Grotto to get back some of the zombies in your graveyard if your commander isn't on the field.

AndAttrition and Declaration of Naught to take care of your opponents Commanders.

Evasion, evasion, evasion. That seems to be what the deck is lacking and is the best way to proc Beckett.

I see you have Cover of Darkness which is a good start. Add Levitation, Goblin War Drums, and Archetype of Imagination, maybe even Intimidation.

I also second the suggestion to add some changelings, mainly Taurean Mauler and Cairn Wanderer. The wanderer ends up being a stupid good pirate after a single wrath effect.

And until we get more pirates in the next set, more draw power will help you fill the board with pirates. Kindred Discovery seems like a must include.

Good luck!

Boros Charm and Golgari Charm is something that isn't removal, but it is versatile and will help you punch through due to not being afraid of creatures dying. As for actual removal Austere Command, Solar Tide, Vandalblast, Righteous Fury or Sunblast Angel, Void. For unblockability Cover of Darkness, Glaring Spotlight, and Profane Command.

For ultimate cheese, Triumph of the Hordes infect p2 for 10 pts and p1 dies from infect too.

Frank_Glascock Awesome, both Cover of Darkness and Bloodghast are fantastic in this deck.

In terms of board wipe protections - Eldrazi Monument is very close to being included in my deck. I've been looking into it for awhile and I may just pick up a copy and see how it does. The evasion it gives and protection is perfect.

Phyrexian Reclamation is going in. Not sure what it is replacing yet, but I do need it. I was neutral on the card at first but after the last two weeks of more play-testing I realized it should be an auto-include. Luckily, my deck has been going off in every game I've played and my board state quickly gets out of control. Phyrexian Reclamation makes sure I can come back to that state if I lose it - and with low CMC vamps it is worth it.

For this version of the deck in particular I don't find that Sangromancer or Pawn of Ulamog are worth it. I would consider dropping a two CMC vamp for Bloodcrazed Paladin and Dark Prophecy & Scapegoat are both solid cards that could be considered in the future.

I would definitely cut Bloodline Necromancer. Sweet that it enters the battlefield but 5 CMC is way to high for a creature in this deck that doesn't anthem your whole board. Plus, with mostly low CMC vamps that is not worth it.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip is fine, but again, for that CMC, I need the creature to be a type of lord. Or have an effect like Malakir Bloodwitch which is a win-con in itself.

Love Vampire Nocturnus, but I think he is too risky in mardu. That is your call though, depending on your deck. He could be worth it.

So far, I havent used Reconnaissance to its full potential, but I'm confident it will be strong. Lately I've been winning my pods with Cover of Darkness combined with Shared Animosity. Together, I take out one or even two opponents in one turn.

I would run some of the signets to ramp up mana quicker. And perhaps some dragon token generators

So far these might help I thinkScourge of Nel Toth, Skyline Despot, Dragonmaster Outcast, Quicksilver Amulet, Cover of Darkness

Blind Obedience is on my radar. Have you needed Reconnaissance with the presence of Blind Obedience and Cover of Darkness?
