Fearfactor, it is your deck and you are certainly free to do with it as you please, but I am not following your reasoning. Why not both? Turn 1, Diregraf Ghoul, turn two Graveyard Marshal or Walking Corpse and swing for 2. It puts you way ahead on turn 3 when you play your Death Baron as well (Now you have two 3/3 death touchers or a 3/3 and a 4/3 death toucher). The only downside to the ghoul over the Walking Corpse is that it does not block its first turn (which you don't look to do anyway in an aggressive deck). If your trying to get more into midrange then I see your point (although I would still go with the ghoul over the walking corpse for the open mana), but in an aggro deck I think you would really like your results with an aggressive one drop. Anyway, I'll get off my soap box now. Feel free to try it or to ignore me, and have fun!

David_H18 Definitely gonna see what my LGS has for Graveyard Marshal but I'm not really a fan of Diregraf Ghoul for me it does nothing until turn 2 in which I can play a Walking Corpse or Graveyard Marshal (thanks for this! I have no idea how I missed this card). Probably just me, but thats my reasoning.

Nice deck, it's simular to what I built here check it out if you like for a few ideas: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/m19-budget-zombies-1/

my suggestions would be add 1-2 Open the Graves it's a nice card to have since you will be sacing a few zombs it's good get something back for sacing and your Death Barron can power up them tokens. Lord of the Accursed would be a nice add too as it powers up your zombs and that ability is really useful. Crucible of Worlds is an expensive card but would be a nice one of as I play a simular deck in standard atm and you end up getting a few lands in your graveyard so it is very useful especially since your playing 4 Stitcher's Supplier Necrotic Wound would be good since your deck is very heavy on getting zombies in the graveyard and it can deal with indestrutible creatures I would switch Creeping Chill with Necrotic Wound as the mana cost is high for not a lot except the life gain Vicious Offering is worth while mention as well as it fits in with the sacing nature of your deck. Dread Wanderer would be a nice replacement to Diregraf Ghoul just because that ability is quite useful and is simular to Diregraf Ghoul.

Ravenous Harpy would be good sideboard encase of any decks with flying creatures.

as for names how about: "Undead Nightmare" "Creeping call of the Dead" "Call from beyond the Grave" "Shrieking Calls from the Grave" "The dead shall rise again" "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps" just a few suggestions off top of my head.

Hope that helps, I think your deck is pretty cool it has good synergy 1+

Also just realized there is no Diregraf Ghoul in here. Probably one of the best zombies in standard!

Vicious Conquistador or Diregraf Ghoul might be some good 1 drops to look at as well. Also if you sacrifice a lot in one turn Bloodcrazed Paladin might be a nice addition.

Kinda cool but I would like to give you some suggestions. Take out Bone Dragon and take in 2 other Josu Vess, Lich Knight Take out Skeleton Archer and take in 3 Cast Down Take out Whisper, Blood Liturgist and take in 3 Walk the Plank Take out 1 Ravenous Chupacabra and take in 1 more Graveyard Marshal Take out Doomed Dissenter and take in a solid drop Diregraf Ghoul Hope it might help !

Two things right off the bat:

  • You need to run more lands, 32 is way too few even for a mono-color deck. Bump it up to at least 36, personally I would run closer to 38.

  • You're running some creatures that just aren't that great in EDH, namely: Diregraf Ghoul, Highborn Ghoul, Order of Yawgmoth, Shambling Ghoul, and Walking Corpse. While cheap, they're mostly vanilla, low-power creatures which won't get you very far.

As far as upgrades go, some great cards that I didn't see on your list are: Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, Lord of the Accursed, Plague Belcher, and Shepherd of Rot. These cards have more relevant abilities and are Zombie tribal staples.

Something else to consider is running the mono-black mana package since you are able. While not really a budget option, all mono-black decks can substantially benefit from its inclusion.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.

Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!
