Unbelievalee on Battalion of Centaurs

First of all, I would replace Angelic Gift With either Gryff's Boon or Rancor , just like you said in the description. Why? Because Rampage of the Clans would destroy it, and it gets returned to your hand/battlefield whatsoever. Then, I would highly recommend a few copies of Collected Company , since it can be cast in an opponent's turn. Did it occur to you that red als also some great centaurs? For example, Burning-Tree Shaman , Stonebrow, Krosan Hero , Nikya of the Old Ways and Fanatic of Xenagos . Utopia Sprawl is in my opinion better than Verdant Haven . Then there's Conclave Cavalier , which is totally bonkers, although that strategy would not be effective when running Collected Company . Rosemane Centaur is also a good addition, but mainly if you run lower CMC creatures. And even though Genesis is not a centaur, flavourwise it would be a nice addition to this list. Maybe one copy of Fated Intervention for some instant-speed pressure. Tribalwise, I would highly recommend Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton to replace the Stoneforge Masterwork , and you can even sacrifice them to Rampage of the Clans , for more value/pressure. Maybe a Mirror Entity to boost your crew in mid/lategame? If your having trouble getting the right creatures at the right time, maybe Eladamri's Call would be a nice tutor in this list. For fun, I would maybe even run a copy of Descendants' Path . You could also add some artifacts that suit nicely in any tribal deck. Think of cards like Icon of Ancestry , Obelisk of Urd , Bow of Nylea , Eldrazi Monument or maybe even Coat of Arms . Maybe even add a Selesnya Signet for fixing. All artifacts which you can even sacrifice to Rampage of the Clans . Also consider some Changelings, since they're basically just Centaurs... Chameleon Colossus . You could also add Oath of the Ancient Wood , if you're planning on running this amount of enchantments/auras. Then there's lands. I realize you want to keep this list budget, that's ok, in your case I would still run several Canopy Vista , Fortified Village , Temple of Plenty , Mutavault (which is a centaur), or Oran-Rief, the Vastwood . Chronicler of Heroes goes nicely with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer . Centaur Omenreader is also a pretty solid card by simple making your creatures cost 2 less when it's tapped. You also need cardadvantage. Think of cards like Harmonize . Also, in this meta, you'll need some hard removal. Think of cards like Dismember , Path to Exile , Generous Gift or Beast Within . You can also consider some allround lords and anthem effects. Maybe cards like Wilt-Leaf Liege , Always Watching , Glorious Anthem , Gaea's Anthem , Radiant Destiny , Hall of Triumph , Force of Virtue , Beastmaster Ascension or Collective Blessing . Maybe even a Song of Freyalise ? Yet again, all cards you can eventually sacrifice for Rampage of the Clans . You could even add some retrieval in this list, think of cards like Noxious Revival , Regrowth or Eternal Witness . Sideboard wise, I would highly recommend cards like Rest in Peace , Stony Silence , Dryad Militant , Krosan Grip , Damping Sphere , Grafdigger's Cage , Leyline of Sanctity .

This is it for now. When anything relevant comes up, I will let you know.

Keep up the good work.

Dismember I feel is a fine sideboard addition. Gets around indestructible which Fatal Push just doesnt.

Kalitas, is not a zombie creature type so sorry he will not be making an appearance in the deck sadly.

Ghost Quarter is too slow getting out reliably so also pass for now.

Damping Sphere hurts my gameplan too and turns nykthos into a basic swamp at best

This decklist will be staying mono-black however I do feel like both bw and br zombies can be strong. Hell. Even UB zombies has some decent cards, however if I build a deck it will be it's own thing. Not here.

Dismember doesn't feel right. Maybe change it to another Fatal Push (you have fetches already to trigger it easy without Carrion), Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Ghost Quarter or Damping Sphere depending on meta. Your Lilis can be slow in the mainboard and should probably be in the sideboard since you alrrady have a ton of 3 drops. Seeing that you added fetches, you can opt to go Orzhov or Rakdos zombies if you like.

BW can give you Wayward Servant and Corpse Knight which are with Carrion Feeder , Undead Augur , and Gravecrawler on the field. Those colors also give you some hate cards like Kataki, War's Wage and Stony Silence . You also can rely less on 3 drops, have a more efficient curve, and Carrion Feeder becomes a mana sink mid-late game. It's midrange and is efficient.

BR can give you Lightning Bolt , Dreadhorde Butcher , Rakdos Charm , and Abrade . You don't have to rely on 3 drops since your highest cmc is 2. This is more Aggro and is pretty fast against slow decks like control.

In blue and green removal can be hard to come by, I recommend Dismember and if you want Beast Within as it deals with any permanent including planeswalkers and tron lands.

Thinking about cutting a Dismember for a second Anguished Unmaking to be able to hit more sideboard hate.

Hi there, thanks for taking an interest in my decks. About zombies: It's still hard to have a Tier 1 deck, but you can make something really competitive nonetheless. The thing is, as you know, dropping low-cost and efficient creatures is mandatory for Modern. I'll give you some zombie cards to consider, 3 CMC max:

These are my favorite zombie creatures. There are a few more around but for Modern I think the ones I mentioned are the ones that really shine. But please do search and see if you find any other you prefer

Then you need to worry about interaction. Bet on discard cards like Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek and even Duress , as they are good control and your only way of getting rid of artifacts and enchantments. Creature killers are a must as well: Fatal Push , Spark Harvest , Go for the Throat , Tragic Slip , Dismember or Defile (when you have many basic lands only). The last three kill indestructible creatures

It's a good idea to have some other spells. Reanimation like Ghoulcaller's Chant and Unearth sits well with what we're trying to do. One or two copies of Sign in Blood might be something to consider as well. Also you can try enchantments that benefit on death like Grave Pact or Open the Graves . Endless Ranks of the Dead and Whip of Erebos are amazing too. If you have planeswalkers, do not be tempted by their abilities while forgetting the mana cost and the turns you need to activate ultimates. Liliana, Dreadhorde General is nice but too expensive and slow. Try Liliana, the Last Hope or Liliana, Untouched By Death instead if you insist on planeswalking. If you're lucky enough to have Liliana of the Veil , then use it

Lastly, Aether Vial does wonders for saving your mana casting creatures, and Surgical Extraction punishes non-basic lands and combos the enemy might throw at you

Hope I helped somehow. If you have questions please ask! Also, if you like Rakdos I invite you to check my deck Hell Awaits. Have fun and good games

Snowmen1 those are all excellent suggestions. However, those are all cards I've had in the deck at the past, but taken out for one reason or another. Dryad Militant was replaced by Hexdrinker , as it provides pressure in the mid to late game, but I could see putting her back in. Dismember used to to be in side, but my LGS meta is dominated by control decks, hense the Shapers' Sanctuary that might get replaced by Veil of Summer . Dungrove Elder was way to slow. In every game I played, he was never bigger than a 5/5, but usually sat around 4/4, and only provides 1 devotion. The simple answer for Coco is that it's just to slow,and I was always hitting too many non-creatures with it.
