Mr_Radical Thanks for the sweet suggestions. I found a supper troll combo that involves Chandra's Ignition, Basilisk Collar/Coat with Venom and Dread Slaver which wipes the board and put them all on ur side. Thanks for the help. BTW ur deck is sweet as well.

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.
Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.
Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.
that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

Ok! Let's begin with my usual disclaimer: I'm making all suggestions without regard to budget, since I don't know what you're working with. If you've got a particular upper limit (that eliminates most of the cards I suggest) that you want me to consider, let me know and I'll come back.
I'd be really pushing hard in the Zombie theme of this deck, given it's power. A non-zombie creature has to be really amazing to warrant a spot, or at least produce zombies a la Kalitas, and while Crypt Ghast fits the bill, Ascendent Evincar really doesn't. It's a small buff for a big price, and you can't recast him with your commander. Similarly, Paragon of Open Graves should probably go, and Wonder should probably go.
If exchange, here are some quality zombies to consider:
Undead Alchemist - it makes your guys mill rather than deal damage, but for every creature card that hits a graveyard, you get another zombie.
Apprentice Necromancer - not only is he a zombie, he reanimates more zombies for you! Plus, he only makes you sacrifice on end step, so you can keep reanimating as long as you want!
Noxious Ghoul - works as a mini-board wipe for your opponents, particularly if you're able to drop multiple zombies per turn.
Cryptbreaker - another zombie that makes more zombies, it also provides a huge source of card advantage once you've got enough zombies.
Dread Slaver - why only play with your creatures when you can play with everyone else's too?
Graveborn Muse - be careful, because she can easily end up killing you. But still, that's a TON of cards, and who even cares if you have to discard, amirite?
Havengul Runebinder - alright, you caught me, this guy's not a zombie. But he makes zombies! And makes all your zombies permanently bigger! By as much as you want!
Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip - Another non-zombie. But if you can protect her (spoiler - you can!) and she ults, you'll have zombies for days. FOR DAYS. ZOMBIES. FOR DAYS.
Lim-Dul the Necromancer - What? Still MORE non-zombies? But this guy lets you keep your zombies around, AND lets you steal other people's stuff. Seems good.
So here's the thing. Conspiracy doesn't do much, even if you DON'T drop all the non-zombies I mentioned. It alters a handful of creatures in a not-super meaningful way - I mean, they get the buffs your regular zombies enjoy, but the non-zombies aren't really being run for their combat skills, but that their abilities.
Instead, try Endless Ranks of the Dead. You'll love it.

I think I'd keep Dread Slaver He matches where you are going the best. I like Indulgent Tormentor cause he can help you draw your combo. Archfiend of Depravity just cause he is cool but really you don't need many big fatties if you focus on just killing everything they have.
Typhoid Rats is a good add. Turn one rats. turn two equip. They have a big problem.

Hey man so for this deck my recommendation would be switch all Lord of the Undead to Diregraf Captain since it is a much better creature. Then to make up for the loss of the recursion ability run a playset of Unholy Grotto. It will be more resilient to removal since its a land and the ability is cheaper. I think Grave Titan could go and be replaced with Grimgrin, Corpse-Born. With good token generation he can be super powerful. Or even playing Gravecrawler a lot. Altar's Reap is better card draw for this deck in my opinion because I think Tidings isn't efficient enough. Dread Slaver is not very good because while his ability is cool, no one is going to block it and you have no way of forcing blocks so it can have better cards in its slot. One card that I think could be good is Cemetery Reaper. It buffs other zombies and it has a really nice effect you can dump mana into for tokens. Another thing is with the enchantments. I think you need to be a bit more focused. Like don't have 3 one-ofs. I would say do like 2 or 3 Rooftop Storms or Grave Pact. I think the weakest enchantment is Call to the Grave and you might not need 4 Endless Ranks of the Dead. Lastly some other cards I have seen that you could use are Undead Alchemist which would be better if you run Grave Pact and more sac outlets or the card Vengeful Pharaoh.

If you want to make some room here are a few you can start with Torrent Elemental has to be cut since its not legal to run it unless your command is green as well as blue and black. And these cards are just kind of weak sauce Abattoir Ghoul, Butcher Ghoul, Diregraf Ghoul, Dread Slaver, Walking Corpse, Helvault, Cellar Door, and Night Terrors.
