I don't think anyone has written me such a long comment on a deck of mine, so let me start off by saying thank you!

I'm absolutely unphased by the RR casting costs of Collective Defiance and Reforge the Soul. If my draw engine is working at all (via Mythos/Howling Mine/Waste Not etc), it should be pretty easy to find two red mana sources.

I AM phased by dying before I can get my deck going. If I don't get Waste Not, I'm dead in the water. It is the industrial-grade gorilla glue holding this deck together. I thought about playing around with other ways to generate black mana (Cabal Coffers for example), and additional ways to not die early game (Lethal Vapors for example), but am unsure of how to fix that. I might just go with it and make this a YOLO deck that I play for fun. Vampire Nighthawk is a good idea for surviving the early game, and I might fiddle around with things to include it. The sub gimmick I had with this deck was running as little creature cards as possible, but I might be willing to break that for Nighthawk.

Culling the Weak is something I was thinking of too, so I could actually use the cards I draw and the zombies I create, but it's unreliable if I'm running against a deck that doesn't run many creatures.

Well, if you are only in black for Sengir autocrat and marsh flitter, you should probably cut black. Alternatively, you can cut red entirely, win with Torment of Hailfire and Exsanguinate and keep black cards, adding stuff like Culling the Weak t oaccelareate and Sign in Blood to draw.

I really like Culling the Weak. It's some serious acceleration, that really could get me some heavier cards early. But I need to try out, how much of a problem mana might be, to know if I'll actually use it. Grave Pact on the other hand seems just amazing and I see some heavy potential with combining it with Reassembling Skeleton, especially when I don't draw Savra for a while.

Skinrender costs one less than the banshee and the effect doesn't end with the turn. It might be worth looking into. I mention tragic slip as a way to take out bigger threats with indestructible. Grave Pact and Phyrexian Obliterator are also decent, but pricey monetarily. Culling the Weak can give a sacrifice and acceleration.The land additions, it anything, would help you keep tempo without losing a turn. And a playset would only cost around $2.
