Zombies...ZOMBIES!!?!? Unholy Grotto, Zombie Master + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Bone Dancer, Cabal Interrogator, Cemetery Reaper, Phyrexian Crusader, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, Grave Titan.

+1 from me, since i toyed around with the idea of a casual devotion/skeleton deck :) Death Baron is a really nice addition and Undead Warchief will surely help !

Just a little question : how many times did Grey Merchant of Asphodel do the trick ? I mean, can he act as a finisher ?

Also, I know it's a devotion deck, but I would cut Swamps for 2 Cabal Coffers :)

Zombies... num num num. :)

Either way, I like this tribal! Hope I helped in some small way, and I'm interested to hear how well this deck fares. :)

Winggrafter (now Winged Ghoul):

New Legendary creature (Asmodion, Undead Savant):

bobjones36: It's safe to say that it's fair. I made it (Still looking for something to math wing grafter. I'll change the card name back to the original once it's been found). That way, it's more committed to blue and it balances out. Plus it granting the bonuses to only Zombies you control. Remember, Death Baron granted its benefits to both Skeletons and Zombies, and there was no drawback with him.

4 probably isn't necessary. He is legendary and he cost 5, so you could get other cards by then to accelerate the process. Black Cat is nice, along with Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Fleshbag Marauder, Gravecrawler, and Geralf's Messenger. I know this is a casual deck, but I'm just sayin'.

Undead Warchief is a wonderful zombie pumper, especially good with Endless Ranks of the Dead since your tokens will be 4/3. Another good (tough costly) zombie lord is Death Baron, it gives all your zombies deathtouch!

With 4 tragic slip, I recommend putting your sideboarded Go for the Throat in the main, for more effectiveness. +1, overall good deck, plus zombies are rad.

If you fancy to look some other zombie decks examples (and like some background lore), you can take a look at my Rottin' Mates. It would be appreciated.

Hope this help!

MadStacks Thanks for your suggestions, Here are my personal thoughts on those

Considered but doesn't fit the deck:

-Returned Phalanx It's a good card but problem is I can't find it to benefit me enough as that mana it uses up to attack I would rather use with Mortarpod Gravecrawler damage combo or Cemetery Reaper ability. It fits the curve better but I don't want to be defending anyways xD

-Curse of Shallow Graves That card actually looks really solid but it's not modern legal so I won't add it. I'm not a super competitive player, but I still would rather run a legal deck, thanks for showing me this :D

-Zombie Infestation This is kinda meh, I can't run it as my deck runs lower costed cards, so generally I'm playing everything rather than having extra things to discard. Also not powerful enough in my opinion for it's effect.

-Sidisi, Undead Vizier I don't run enough costy cards to need a tutor, and Grimgrin deals way more damage for the same mana cost. It's nice to have deathtouch, but it's unnecessary with Diregraf Captain and Death Baron

Placed in Sideboard, works but not for main deck

-Endless Ranks of the Dead Good if facing heavy token decks from opponents, I like this card but did not want to initially purchase it.

-Havengul Lich + Necromancer's Stockpile If I want to run re-animator I would side in both these two for Cemetery Reaper and Go for the Throat

Thanks for the comment :D

1) You should remove Hunted Ghoul and add in Gravecrawler and/or Diregraf Ghoul as they are much more effective

2) Remove Butcher Ghoul and add in Geralf's Messenger as he makes undying actually worth it

3) Consider replacing Doom Blade with Go for the Throat in case you play against black deck

4) If you want to make your land base better do 14X Swamp 4X Drowned Catacomb and 4X Darkslick Shores as islands will slow you from playing cards such as Sign in Blood

5) If you want to make your zombies more of a threat add in a few Death Baron to make all your zombies from Endless Ranks of the Dead Deathtouch :D

This makes your deck cost a lot more but could really benefit you....

Also consider...Grimgrin, Corpse-Born as you have lots of tokens to feed him with

You deck looks really good for a budget zombie deck, but either way I hope consider my suggestions as a way to make your deck a little more competitive :D
