I would recommend the following cards, assuming you are going for a mono black tribal zombie deck

Death Baron - deathtouch is cool

Grave Titan - not a zombie himself, but a great generator of them

Lord of the Undead - Bump and graveyard return

Undead Warchief - Cheaper and more painful zombies

Diregraf Colossus - Speaks for itself

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed - Give's everything but humans you control undying (and is a zom)

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Speaks for itself

Plague Belcher - Neat Lad

Call to the Grave - Probably never leaves the battlefield via sac, totally ruins opponents board presence until they can destroy it

A Doom Blade or Fatal Push couldn't hurt either

Some Tribal necessities too:

Coat of Arms

Cavern of Souls - Though if money is tight don't even bother

Obelisk of Urd

Door of Destinies

Herald's Horn

That's all I can think of for now, let me know if you want more recommendations for cards to add. As for the cards you currently have, I would recommend the following:

Remove Liliana's Mastery - 5 Mana for a bump and zombie, seems to me like there are better options

Replace Thoughtseize with Duress if money is a concern.

Remove Patriarch's Bidding - It's a cool card, but you have better ways to bring your stuff back (like Zombie Apocalypse for one more , and it also allows tribal opponents to come back. Also $$$$$$$

Legendary_Shadow indeed you have read my mind, I have my LGS looking for 2 more Death Barons as we speak! They say great minds think alike!

Well if you like zombies, what about adding 2 more Death Baron and cutting the Drudge Sentinel

Hi KaladeshKat

Ill drop a few Graveyard Marshals in, keeps the synergy ticking along. I kinda like the Death Baron to make opponents attacks awkward but 1 or 2 is enough.

This would be fun! I personally would drop the Death Barons for max copies of Graveyard Marshal. that way you have more ways to interact with your graveyard.

Love the idea here! I’m a big fan of tribal decks, especially the lesser played , budget ones. I might consider adding 1 more Gurmag Swiftwing. I’ve actually played it in a deck I made and it has been pretty good. Maybe over 1 Grimclaw Bats? Anyways, that’s your choice.

Specifically regarding comments 2-5 on this deck, and to anyone who reads these comments: THIS DECK IS TRIBAL. The only requirements for a tribal deck (I’m almost certain) are the following:

  • The deck must have 10 or more creatures

  • 75% or more of those creatures must share a card type

A deck doesn’t have to have a tribal payoff (ex. Death Baron in a zombie deck) to be tribal. I just wanted to clarify that for anybody wondering. Again, nice deck!

Minor alteration you might enjoy - Horde of Notions for a general - you can't tutor out cards from play, but it lets you run any changling for , and cast them from graveyard as well.

another odd option is Reaper King for destruction of permanents

odd "lords" that might fit well -

Admiral Beckett Brass and or Captivating Vampire - Steal their stuff!

Bramblewood Paragon & the their tribal parallels - give a static bonus even after the card leaves

Death Baron - pairs well with first / double strike. kill stuff dead. good alternitive to Zombie Master

Drogskol Captain - another lord of the unreal, effectively. plus it steroids

Scion of Oona - see above, but shroud. can't target it, but has flash

Field Marshal and / or Stromkirk Captain - pairs well with deathtouch

Seshiro the Anointed - big buffs + card draw = win

Midnight Entourage - Gives a mini Phyrexian Arena effect when one dies

Myr Galvanizer - untapping is amazing. do stuff more!

Pheres-Band Warchief - because tribal centaurs are apparently a thing

Timber Protector & Crested Sunmare - because indistructable is amazing

Unnatural Selection - because more messing with stuff is more better

AEther Shockwave & Whelming Wave - lockout effects

Crux of Fate - because it is now viable in a non-dragon tribal

Goblin Chieftain - an alternitive to goblin king - not a fan of landwalk, personally. to circumstantial
