Diregraf Colossus Discussion

What's your opinion on Nameless Inversion?
I can kill most of the same things Lightning Bolt can kill. It's more expensive, but Undead Warchief makes it cheaper, and Lord of the Undead can pull it back from the graveyard to your hand, and Diregraf Colossus will recognize it as a zombie spell. I guess in a pinch, it can be used to pump one of your dudes.

I know it seems a little underwhelming, but have you considered Sedraxis Alchemist? It combos really nicely with Rooftop Storm to give you infinite casts in a turn, exploiting Diregraf Colossus and Altar of the Brood, and can help you bounce obnoxious enchantments in a pinch (Rest in Peace and Leyline of the Void come to mind). With the amount of counter magic you're running it could be a pretty reliable enchantment removal tool. Plus, if it happens to wind up in your graveyard you can hit it with The Scarab God at instant speed.

I like all of those options. The only things I don't have much use for would be Zombie Apocalypse (none of my friends use humans), and Zombie Master (Regeneration doesn't appeal to me, I may in fact want some in the graveyard for synergy with other cards).
Diregraf Colossus would be a great option, to have a high power / toughness guy out there, and I like the low mana cost on him, as well as creating 2/2 zombies. The problem is, this deck is already pretty fast as it is, so I don't have a good opportunity to get a lot of zombies into the graveyard. Any black (or colorless) sorceries / instants / enchantments that allow me to throw away a lot of cards?

Hmmm... how about x2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to ramp into an Army of the Damned? Honestly you could drop 2 swamps and 1 other thing. Also from my experience, Curse of Shallow Graves has been amazing. I run 4 in my old zombie deck and it did some serious work with Attrition on the field. I also run Liliana's Reaver and theres good synergy with Attrition there too (Gravecrawler and Attrition is good too).
As for Stromgald Crusader, he could actually be a good finisher for your deck if you run Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Give him flying and then just jump over your opponent's stuff and hit for a bunch because you've got all that sweet devotion mana.

Because Diregraf Colossus triggers on cast you definitely get the zombie token before Sidisi, Undead Vizier resolves. If they both triggered on the creature entering rather than being cast you would get to stack the triggers in either order, so you could stack them such that you got the token before sacrificing a creature anyways.

Unsure of whether this token would trigger before Sidisi, Undead Vizier reaches the battlefield (allowing exploit to occur). I would think it does because of the way Diregraf Colossus is phrased. Utilizing the word "cast" instead of it being a triggered ETB effect. Clarification of ruling and my general understanding greatly appreciated.
