Death Baron Discussion

Whereas Liliana, the Last Hope recursion would only -2 her, keeping her alive and works on the turn you play, as supposed to waiting to flip her. Also you would only have to +1 her once and could activate her recursion twice.

You have to understand, Adrekan, that sequencing of event in this deck is critical. Diregraf Colossus enter the battle field with counters, which are permanent, and the zombies check only happens once upon resolution, so the key is casting him before recurring, so that he gets a buff and you get zombies out. Not only that, but zombies get removed all the time, and I run a couple sacrifice outlets myself, leaving not shortage of ways to get zombies in. A turn two Collective Brutality escalated twice with Gravecrawler and Prized Amalgam leads into a turn three colossus drop, and turn 4 recast, plus Death Baron, which results in 20 power on board , all with deathtouch, for turn 5, when you can Whip of Erebos for lifelink damage. Even with extensive changes, I've yet to find any suitable replacement for colossus, and he fits quite well in that slot.

I don't know the price of cards so I don't know if it will fit your budget but you could try: Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief, Risen Executioner, Cemetery Reaper, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Diregraf Captain,Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, Army of The Dammed , Endless Ranks of Dead, Grave Pact, Vampiric Rites, Liliana, the Last Hope. Hope this helps.

Nice deck, I like it. Just a few notes:
24 is entirely too many lands for a deck with no mana sinks or discard outlets. Youre monocolor and your curve stops at 4. you could very easily go down to 21.
Fourth, I dislike Butcher Ghoul. Zombies dont have good options for two drops in modern besides Relentless dead, but unless you have sacrifice synergies, I dont like it, and even then, it's not actually good. pick a two drop, and slap a play set in there, even if its something like a Highborn Ghoul
Fifth and last, pad out your drop suite with a pair of Cryptbreaker.

Nice deck! Looks like you started playing Magic around the same time I did (Theros block) from your card choices? Anyways, I also love Sidisi, Brood Tyrant as a commander and I have a deck here: Taigam's Scheming (Turn 2 Win) Feel free to check it out and leave a +1, but don't worry about the card choice since I took the deck in a very different direction. My meta is semi competitive so I needed to up the power level just to not be outclassed.
Seeing that you are going the full on zombie route, you are missing the best part of going tribal: Zombie Lords!!! Check these out: Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Diregraf Captain, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief, and Zombie Master.
Most of these cards are older and may be harder to find/expensive, but they are well worth it when your army of 2/2's become 5/5's with deathtouch!
There are 2 ways to get more zombies with Sidisi: Attack or MillIf you want to attack, then you need more evasion and protection for Sidisi. She needs to survive combat so that she can attack each turn!
If you want to mill, you need cards that take the top cards of your library and dump them directly into your grave. That will trigger Sidisi just like an attack. To find cards that mill, go on Gatherer and search for key words: "top", "card", "library", "graveyard". But to get you started with the most recent Magic sets I present: Perpetual Timepiece, Codex Shredder, Contingency Plan, Taigam's Scheming, Crawling Sensation, Corpse Churn, Gisa and Geralf, and Laboratory Brute.
I would suggest a combination of both of the above strategies. You want to make sure you have enough creatures in your deck (maybe 33%) so that you get an almost guaranteed chance of triggering Sidisi with each attack/mill. And also remember that milling multiple creatures at once only gives you 1 zombie each time. So mill only a few cards at a time.
Solid start to a fun and powerful deck! If you want more advice on general EDH deck building (like how many lands to put in, how much artifact ramp, etc.) I'd be happy to help. Happy brewing!
