Thanks for the suggestions. There is a lot of Lightning Bolt / Shock in my play group, so I tend to avoid the lower toughness creatures. Anything 1/1 is likely to just get zapped instantly.

This being said, I like options such as Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief, etc. I will probably swap out Abattoir Ghoul for Death Baron, Liliana's Reaver for Undead Warchief, and Ammit Eternal for Lord of the Undead, that way anything I play will boost everything else up.

I'm also considering options like Attrition, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Call to the Grave, for more board presence and control. Considering that I want all these +1/+1 zombies, maybe it would be good if I had more options to get a lot of 2/2 black zombies onto the battlefield. Shepherd of Rot could also be used late game, because by that time I'll have a few +1/+1 zombies out there so he can't be instantly lightning bolted.

I also don't have much use for Stromgald Crusader, (I don't need flying, my way of getting around enemy creatures is menace / fear) but I approved it because I like the way it looks. I'm simple like that.

Necropotence is amazing. You could replace Read the Bones and add it in. Also maybe throw in a copy or two of Lake of the Dead for some ramp. I'd add in some one drop creatures, maybe cut Harsh Scrutiny and a Profane Command for 3x Cryptbreaker. I'd also add in a total of 6 of the following cutting some of your other creatures and a Sol Ring maybe: Miasmic Mummy, Plaguebearer, Relentless Dead, Shepherd of Rot, or Stromgald Crusader. You could add in some lords... Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief are solid. Some other things to consider are Attrition, Curse of Shallow Graves, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Call to the Grave. Hope this helps out!

You both have good points, and I do have cards like Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, Death Baron, and Lord of the Undead in my other Zombie Deck, but I was shooting for something a little different here. It originally started out as a standard deck and I realized Vedalken Orrery exists, which is the only reason this is modern. (I added Liliana Vess after making it modern, wouldn't have done that in standard obviously.) Should I just revert this back to standard and add these suggestions to my other Zombie Deck?

Have you considered Undead Warchief, Gravecrawler, Cryptbreaker, Unbreathing Horde, Relentless Dead, Death Baron, Lord of the Undead and Cemetery Reaper? I feel like a lot of these cards would help with triggering Wayward Servant and Binding Mummy multiple times as well as boosting up your zombies to do some serious damage.

Curious why you aren't running Path to Exile as cheap removal as well.

If you are only looking for one, then Death Baron is your best bet, although it definitely depends on your build/strategy. That said, in zombie tribal, Undead Warchief and Diregraf Captain are both very strong as well, with Cemetery Reaper and Zombie Master after that. As previously noted, if you are running Gravecrawler, then Diregraf is a must, and I'd recommend Carrion Feeder as well. Add a Phyrexian Altar, and you can infinite combo to win.

What are some of the other cards you plan to run? Gravecrawler, for example, is useful to sac to stuff like Nantuko Husk to get Diregraf Captain/Plague Belcher triggers. Lots of tokens probably benefit from lords like Death Baron because chomping tokens becomes much harder.

Personally I think Cemetery Reaper has too great of a cost for its ability. Same with Risen Executioner.

I do like Undead Warchief, and Zombie Master is great if youre using Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

I am looking to make a zombie tribe deck and looking at the Lords to use and i cannot decide which one:

Cemetery Reaper

Death Baron

Diregraf Captain

Lord of the Accursed

Risen Executioner

Undead Warchief

Zombie Master

Should I go with multiples or one of the Lords?

I envy you. I don't pay much for my decks, but there is an art to budget. I just found in my collection a play set of Death Barons so I am happy right now!
