Hi! +1!

Have you considered: Bog Witch, Cryptbreaker, Dark Confidant, Gate to Phyrexia, Weaponcraft Enthusiast?

And I would recommend to use Bitterblossom for all the stax and mana dinial spells and as a sac fodder generator.

I am guessing this build maybe started from the intro pack (Just guessing), which actually made me love zombies :)

First of you can look at my Zombie deck for inspiration, sometimes it helps to see others builds.

I don't know if you are on a budget or you are going another route for your build, so feel free to say no to any of my suggestions.

First of i would probaly cut Oath of Liliana since you dont run any planeswalkers and i dont see it fit so well in.

You could run Tragic Slip.

When you are running zombie tribal like this you want lords to support them: Cemetery Reaper, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead. The more budget version is: Lord of the Accursed or if you feel like splashing blue in then Diregraf Captain.

In zombie decks you definetly want to run a number of copies of these two: Cryptbreaker and Diregraf Colossus.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel works wonders in mono black decks and it has the zombie tag.

If you're not on a budget definetly: Relentless Dead, Gravecrawler.

well, some good zombies in general are Relentless Dead, Cryptbreaker, Prized Amalgam and Geralf's Messenger all great cards in general. some good synergy in the deck might be with Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip and Risen Executioner both great in the deck as well. you also could try Haunted Dead and Lord of the Undead or maybe even Liliana's Mastery.

I shudder to see a zombie deck without Unholy Grotto or Lord of the Undead! The zombies' greatest strength is their recurrable nature - ensure you can capitalize on that!

Other good card advantage engines include Cryptbreaker, Carrion Feeder, Dictate of Erebos, Attrition and Fleshbag Marauder. I'd also try and get Diabolic Intent in there if you can afford it!

Cool idea But there HAS to be a better one drop then Deadeye Tracker that card is toilet paper.

Don't say it's Cryptbreaker It's not.

benw on Marchesa's Zombie Horde

All three of my Tricolour zombie decks have been in need of serious updates since Commander 2014. I have made a lot of changes to update this since the revisit to Innistrad as cards like Cryptbreaker, Geralf's Masterpiece and others have been excellent additions.

The biggest change has been from self-mill with cards like Armored Skaab to self-discard with cards like Necromancer's Stockpile or Cryptbreaker.

The change relates to experience with my SBT BUG deck - I found that if you mill yourself a lot, all the other cards have to have recursion or other cards to reanimate them. So, unless we are talking about Faithless Looting or Army of the Damned sorceries in my Marchesa deck would need cards like Possessed Skaab, which lead to a lot of cards extra cards.

Now the deck revolves around strong Zombies with counters, cards like thraximunder, Diregraf Colossus, Noosegraf Mob and Unbreathing Horde. These zombies with counters, work alongside self-discard cards which help generate tokens, draw cards and fill the graveyard with tonnes of beneficial targets. Now that we are selectively discarding rather than milling, we can draw into lands and spells which we need in hand; cards like [[Living End] or [Twilight's Call]], which we couldn't do before. We can also discard targets like Scourge of Nel Toth or Anger or Vengeful Pharaoh.

You've got a lot of cards in here that seem to have made the list simply because they're zombies (Blighted Bat, Carrion Screecher, Moaning Wall , etc). I would cut anything that is basically a pile of stats with the zombie tag and add some more synergistic zombies. Some great ones that aren't currently included are Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Gravecrawler, Cryptbreaker, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Relentless Dead, Plague Belcher, Noxious Ghoul, Corpse Harvester, and Vengeful Dead.

In addition, I'd run a lot more lands than 26. 36-40 is a good guideline in my opinion for any non-green edh deck. You might also want some sacrifice outlets in order to exploit Athreos's ability when you have an opponent with low life. Finally, you might want to explore some creature-based removal instead of instants/sorceries to further synergize with Athreos. Wispmare and Shriekmaw are some good cards for that slot.

ThatGuy4242 on Gisa and Geralf - Zombie Tribal Prototype EDH

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich
