I know that he would be 3 mana as opposed to 2, but I really think that you should consider a playset of Death Baron.

Stick with 4x Death Baron ,Cemetery Reaper , Gravecrawler. And mabey 2x Grave Titan to top your curve. Check out my deck Mikaeuss revenge

Death Baron is a fantastic way to make opponents hesitate before attacking you.

Door of Destinies + Rooftop Storm + Grimgrin, Corpse-Born + Gravecrawler = +infinite/+infinite Zombies

But yeah Haushinka is right you need to drop CMC. Also playing Cemetery Reaper over Death Baron hurts me deeply :P and Empty the Pits over Zombie Apocalypse

Lich Lord of Unx can be fun to get some more zombies out for Endless Ranks of the Dead and Grixis Grimblade could be good for a laugh if you're dropping in more multi coloured

MartialArt on Ghoulcaller's Storehouse

Ok. First of all you don't need the Gempalm Polluter if you go for masses because the masses alone will kill your opponent. Instead of him I would run 4 Demonic Tutors so you can fetch your Gisa.

Death Baron is good but you don't need it in here since you don't go for class and only for mass. Focus on one thing. Lord of the Undead on the other hand is good since he can get you creatures back you need. The problem is that he can't give you back Ghoulcaller Gisa so I would drop him too.

Instead I would put in Exhume or Reanimate.

Then you need card draw to keep the deck running. I would suggest Phyrexian Arena or Sign in Blood. More the first then the second. Necropotence would be even better but is really something you should be able to play with or it will kill you. If you feel confident try it out.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is a cool card but has no use in here. It only slows down your mana if it is out together with Cabal Coffers. The same goes for Urborg.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is good. I would use 2 of them to highten the chance to get it together with Cabal Coffers. And use at least 3 Cabal Coffers. It fastens you up a lot.

Volrath's Stronghold is good too. Play 2 of it so you have at least the chance to draw it. 1-timers are mostly bad in a deck unless you already have a 4-timer in your deck with a similiar ability and you want more of it.

Tragic Slip is good in a deck focusing on sacrifice but since you mainly focus on one specific sacirifice effect I would replace it with Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, or Doomblade for more consistency and a sure kill.

Fallen Ideal is a good idea but getting out a Carrion Feeder costs less and is even better. If you focus more on getting him and Ghoulcaller Gisa out with tutors and card draw it may be better since you can store it for later turns. But I would test the deck at first with it in. If you find it to be increasing your chances to make Ghoulcaller Gisa go big keep it. If not replace it.

And with your huge mana production think about Thornbite Staff. Equipping it on Ghoulcaller Gisa gives you unlimited token production.

I hope this helped. Greets MA.

haha yeah I got you, the best zombie token deck that is budget is Blue/Black, that is because Lord of the Undead and Death Baron are really expensive so mono black is out of the picture.

The cards you will need are cards like Diregraf Captain, Diregraf Ghoul, Cemetery Reaper, and from there you can look into token generators like Endless Ranks of the Dead, Undead Alchemist, Quest for the Gravelord, or Wakedancer.

Rescue from the Underworld for sure, maybe Endless Obedience and Soul of Innistrad. Death Baron situationally if you wanna go that route. As I've been planning a Sidisi deck for some time (I just can't acquire the damn card), I've thought of things like Taigam's Scheming and Grisly Salvage for dredge. With so few lands (I'd run around 33-35), you might want Satyr Wayfinder. Also, Dig Through Time if you have it, Golgari Charm for utility, and Far / Away for removal.

I could go on, but I'm short on time.

OMGyssels on NEED HELP - Black Zombie Devotion

Hey RemzZz that's a really great idea. Definitely a good way to increase synergy all the way through the deck.

Dread Slaver and Death Baron seem like a pretty solid combination as well. Thanks ThisIsTheSix.

My thinking with Dark Deal was the extremely high amount of 1 drops in here would likely mean I would be out of cards or very near. Top decking a Dark Deal with Waste Not means a strong combination of 2/2 Black Zombies, Adding to my pool, and drawing cards. Plus, Lord of the Undead helps with graveyard recursion if something important goes to the yard.

But Inquisition of Kozilek does mean more control over what benefits Waste Not gives me, so I'll give that a shot.
