Death Baron Discussion

Endless Ranks of the Dead, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Rooftop Storm, Gisa and Geralf are just a few ideas. There are lots of very good zombie cards. Death Baron is a good lord, so is Undead Warchief

If your goal is build huge amounts of zombies, I would highly recommend Endless Ranks of the Dead since that creates an ever increasing amount of zombies to go with. Plus maybe some tribal style guys like Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and of the best 1 drop zombie ever Gravecrawler who can keep coming and only be permanently removed by exile. Relentless Dead is also a pretty powerful zombie for 2 mana. Undead Warchief, Unbreathing Horde are some good zombies worth looking at. If I were you, to zombies and making a zombie horde effective, I would focus more on the zombie cards specifically rather than cards that help swarm with whatever. House got some cards there for the draw but Cryptbreaker owns the field on drawing a stupid amount of cards once a zombie horde starts going and has won tournaments because of his draw and discard effects. But if you really need some good draw cards, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, and Altar's Reap are the best fast paced draws. Hope all of this helps! Cheers!

looks like a solid deck! I have a couple ideas that i hope will improve your deck!

Nephalia Academy, Radiant Fountain and Waterveil Cavern could be upgraded, maybe Terramorphic Expanse, Nephalia Drownyard, Drownyard Temple, Bojuka Bog

Chronic Flooding, Corpse Churn, Strategic Planning, Forbidden Alchemy, Mesmeric Orb could be a clever way of adding cards to the graveyard

Sol Ring is a stable in commander, more mana rocks? Dimir Signet, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus

Raise Dead dosen't seem strong enough. maybe Beacon of Unrest?

Exhume, Gnawing Zombie, Grave Peril, Gravepurge, Moan of the Unhallowed could be possible cuts

Secrets of the Dead is awesome! maybe swap for or add River Kelpie as well!

Fleshbag Marauder is super good!

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is great!

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon seems out of place

Rise from the Tides seems out of place as well

Call to the Grave is very good

Death Baron, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Noxious Ghoul are some zombies that i think could improve your deck!

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet isn't a zombie but makes them and provides a good effect for commander!

Maybe add a some sources of life gain as well, Whip of Erebos is a good one

Havengul Lich is amazing with Rooftop Storm!

I think it's safe to presume that you should focus on the zombie tribe, in which case you should be more consistent with your most important cards, meaning, 4 of each and all zombies. First of all your Zombie Lords, Cemetery Reaper and Lord of the Undead are indeed zombie lords, but Lord of The Undead is significantly better, run 4 of him, and add another Death Baron to make all your Zombies extremely dangerous to your opponent. A decent 2 cmc creature would be Relentless Dead or Wight of Precinct Six if you are running a lot of removal. Relentless dead together with Lord of The Undead will allow you to constantly bring back your Zombies, endless creature cycling is a win. A card for your sideboard against annoying lifegain decks could be Phyrexian Crusader, his protection from white and red makes it hard to remove him. Lose all creatures that cost more then 3 mana, in modern that's too slow. I suppose you can keep Liliana's Reaver, but maybe consider an Undead Warchief instead. You should lose Demonic Pact and Killing Wave. They will literally lose you the game more often then for your opponent. Duress should be a mainboard card for you. And you should have more of Liliana's Caress. Same for your sideboard in general, you should make it more consistent.

Since you are playing a midrange reanimator combo style SBT I would suggest Kiora's Follower and Birthing Pod. Pod puts things in your graveyard, which is good while grabbing another good card and putting it into play. Follower is just a good value creature that also gets even more value of out of pod and it does fun things with bloom tender, which should get you to T&N much faster. In my experience, it is very easy to set up the deadeye navigator and mike and trike combos with pod. Also getting access to undead sidisi and peregrine drake by podding SBT is very good. You could also add Body Double or Phyrexian Delver for a toolbox effect.

For SBT, Drift of Phantasms is strictly better than Perplex. Being able to tutor for both halves of FC combo with worldly tutor or fauna shaman is very good.

Why no Jin-Gitaxis, Core Augur?

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip checks a ton of boxes for SBT.

Here is a list of situational/low impact cards I dont think you will miss: Nyx Weaver Death Baron, Trickbind, Kessig Cagebreakers.

I think you have more than enough win conditions so the extra aggro options feel like overkill. Trickbind may be a meta call, but Swan Song is usually better imo. Nyx weaver is much weaker than baby jace imo.

It looks like you're trying to do a dimir zombie mill deck. If you look up blue/black zombies on the deck search then that should give you some good ideas to work off with blue/black zombies. But here are some good ones for most zombie decks that you don't have already, Cryptbreaker, Gisa and Geralf, Relentless Dead, From Under the Floorboards, Undead Alchemist, Rooftop Storm, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, Prized Amalgam are just a few to get you started. Hope that helps!

Death Baron is another great zombie lord, although rather pricey. I like Liliana's Reaver. Cryptbreaker can draw some cards. Black Market and Magus of the Coffers can be great ways to get mana in black. Grave Betrayal might be worth looking at. I'd also add a boardwipe or two.
