Death Baron and Grave Titan are good cards to consider

Unfortunately the Death Baron was just finalized in a trade. Thank you for looking though!

ZeGinger on Archenemy/planeschase deck finds???

Okie so I have a little secret that feel sharing.

Well it's not that bad, but still it's alittle bit cheating to be honest.

So in my town there are two specific store chains that sell little deck packages in a plastic container for 20 dollars. You get two booster packs and a sealed intro deck. Not bad right.

Well already on three separate occasions I've found planeschase and archenemy decks in these containers. Not the oversized cards or anything but the regular decks, you know the ones that have Death Baron and Cabal Coffers to Duplicant and Memnarch; those decks. I pulled those from a 20 dollar investment, which feels good and bad at the same time.

Now my reason for pointing this out is, have any of you found things like this in store chains where you live? Surely I'm not the only one who exploits this...

Victim of Night is good removal in mono black.

also Death Baron can swing games very quickly.

+1 from me mate, love to see other Grimgrin decks out there!

I personally went in with a side-note of milling to steal from other player graveyards and with more lords, such as Death Baron, Lord of the Undead and Undead Warchief. Another notable lord is Zombie Master, especially when you have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, all your zombies become unblockable!

Anyways, cia!

As i see it you completely lack creatures, especially appropriate creatures:
- If you want to do 8-rack, then go 8-rack, and use creatures that support that strategy. (things like Ensnaring Bridge, or Wall of Limbs... etc.)
- If you want to play zombies, then use discard effects, but focus on zombies.

Your creatures mana curve is WAY too high, from your 15 creatures, there is 4x , and 2x , and 9x . You simply can't cast them, when you need then.
Beside being slow they are mismatched, and weak for their cmc:
Undead Warchief is just plain bad
Rottenheart Ghoul is the same, its too slow to make any real impact, while it has a half decent body, and discard attached to it, at the time you cast it you will look down the barrel of things like Lord of Lineage  Flip
Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Abyssal Specter, Mogis, God of Slaughter are not zombies, thus they screw with Diregraf Colossus, which is a superb card, IF IT HAS THE TRIBAL SUPPORT

So i would advise to ditch Mogis, the Specter, Rottenheart ghoul, UNdead warchief, regardless whatever you want this deck to be.
If you want some good zombies here are some:
Blood Scrivener (zombie bob, if you plan to empty your hands, by casting your discard spells)
(Gravecrawler if you want to be agressive)
Walking Corpse & Shambling Ghoul are ok fillers
Butcher Ghoul is a free block, and then a 2/2 body
Relentless Dead & Ghoulraiser can bring brack creatures your opponent managed to remove
Geralf's Messenger he probably needs no introduction
Also you can choose from a whole host of lords that are better than Undead Warchief: Cemetery Reaper; Death Baron; Lord of the Undead; Diregraf Captain

Plus there are some interesting zombies for the sideboard, like Lifebane Zombie, or Yixlid Jailer

Changes I would make, followed by the includes I'd replace. Then, I will explain why at the bottom.

Taking out:1x Glissa, the Traitor1x Nim Deathmantle2x Golgari Charm1x Snow-Covered Swamp2x Lord of the Undead2x Rancor

Putting in:2x Death Baron3x Dismember1x Abrupt Decay1x Maelstrom Pulse1x Triumph of the Hordes1x Inquisition of Kozilek

Reasoning for doing this:

The 2/2 split between the Lords was kind-of confusing, but I get it. However, with the way I have it set up, it allows for Triumph of the Hordes to go from "Meh" to "Astonishing" (just because deathtouch + trample go really REALLY well together).

Infect as a WinCon is kind-of what this deck was going for, and I made it somewhat more based on that fact.

Glissa is cute, but as a 1-of, if she's not in your opening hand you'd probably be dead before you could see her, cast her, and actually get use out of her ability with the Deathmantle.

Your deck was doing three entirely different things at the same time, and I feel that it should be streamlined into one specific goal in mind.

I took out the Rancors because Rancor is either a 4-of or a none-of.

I took out the Golgari Charms because it should be in the sideboard. Don't get me wrong, I love the card and think it's in the top 3 for charms, but it felt weird as a 2-of main.

More removal because removal is great in a creature-dominated format. Dismember is phenomenal in any situation. I cut a land, because I want to make you more creature-oriented than Midrange/Controlish.

Let me know what you think of this.

The deck seems inconsistent now, but your zombie theme is stronger. There are lots of one ofs that don't necessarily have very good synergy, or do the job efficiently. Some of the choices are interesting and are decent casual cards that make people think (Cry of Contrition) but aren't exceptionally powerful. Too many four drops.

If you want to go Zombies and discard, you could look at Slavering Nulls. It's a card that unfortunately dies to a swift breeze, but it does what you'd want; represent as a zombie and have the spectre ability. Made better when followed up with something like Death Baron, but that cards not particularly "budget."
