Diabolic Edict is good, but Innocent Blood may be better since this is multiplayer.

You appear to have two Fireballs on your list, one full-art and one not. What's up with that?

You've got Earthquake, but Fault Line is probably better for one more Red at Instant speed.

Smother is a good card you aren't running, as is Diabolic Edict and the upcoming Doomfall. You could probably cut Exquisite Firecraft for one of those.

Cool deck, looks ballin

Cryptbreaker - Great for dumping creatures into the graveyard, making tokens, and drawing you cards.

Death Baron - Not a budget option, but highly effective.

Empty the Pits - I have a bunch of these from my Khans redemption.

Ghoulcaller Gisa - A great way to get creatures in to the bin and make a significant amount of token zombies.

Ghoulcaller's Chant - An interesting option as you can recur two zombies for one black mana.

Grave Betrayal - Similar to your commander's abilities as it steals dead creatures and makes them zombies under your control.

Graveborn Muse - Card draw FTW!!!

Gravespawn Sovereign - A spendy activated ability for an powerhouse ability.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - Not all creatures need to fit the tribal theme as your commander makes them Zombies.

Liliana's Reaver - Token generation, discard effect, decent rate. Viable option.

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - All the value :).

Lim-Dul the Necromancer - Spendy, but another redundant stealing effect . I would consider Clone and Mind Control effects also!

Necromantic Selection A board wipe with a recursion ability.

Noosegraf Mob This card makes a ridiculous amount of zombies!

Oath of Liliana - A decent Diabolic Edict effect with an upside for adding more Liliana's. Overall the oath and the PW's are vulnerable.

Quest for the Gravelord - An interesting, cheap, enchantment with repeatable value.

Risen Executioner - Odd Zombie Lord.

Rooftop Storm - A must in any Zombie deck.

Metallic Mimic - Lord

Adaptive Automaton

Unbreathing Horde

Vizier of Many Faces - Clones!

Waste Not

Hi Hunson_Abadeer. After many games and testing looks like Diabolic Edict is more reliable to cast, however Geth's Verdict can be used as well - whatever floats your boat.

On your sideboard how about Geth's Verdict over Diabolic Edict?

The mana is a little more specific with need two black but I think it's worth it.

  • Regarding Assault Suit that is some spicy tech! Its pricey to cast and equip but it boosts power and prevents us from sacrificing Isamaru, Hound of Konda to Diabolic Edict style effects. It's on the consideration list and I will have a strong eye towards it as the meta develops. Thanks for the suggestion!

Diabolic Edict is a very solid option for hexproof and indestructible commanders. Dark Ritual is a good way to get something powerful a little earlier, or just the last 2 mana you need for a bomb. You could probably cut a few lands, generally 38 is the most you'll need to get enough each game.
