Hi! Zombie tribal is one of my favorite decks too. I think Dark Salvation is a must. The same about Endless Ranks of the Dead . I also like Grimoire of the Dead . Oath of Liliana is another fun card but you'd better find at least a couple of Planeswalkers. For example Jace, Unraveler of Secrets (card advantage and control) and Liliana, Death's Majesty or Liliana, Untouched By Death . Zombie lords: Death Baron , Cemetery Reaper , Lord of the Undead . Board wipe is strongly recommended (at least one of these): Wrath of God Day of Judgment , Cleansing Nova , Damnation , Cyclonic Rift . Useful creatures: Diregraf Colossus , Metallic Mimic . Mana stabilization: Unclaimed Territory , Mana Confluence , Path of Ancestry . Good luck in brewing!

Hello! The first and the main question: what's your budget? Because you need to fix mana base at first: Watery Grave , Drowned Catacomb or Darkslick Shores instead of those dual lands you have. Speaking about creatures: Cryptbreaker is one of my favorite zombies. Card advantage plus madness enabler - and very cheap. Unbreathing Horde isn't bad but Diregraf Colossus is much better. Voldaren Pariah  Flip? Just because its madness cost and transforming effect? I think Grave Titan is better but it's a question of taste (and budget of course). You can also use Fleshbag Marauder + Gisa and Geralf . And what do you think about Endless Ranks of the Dead ? Some words about sideboard: hand disruption - Duress (but Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are much - much! - better), control and discard - Compelling Deterrence (cheap and fun, yes), removal - Vraska's Contempt .

Well I'm finding Cryptbreaker a bit more useful than Dread Wanderer in my matches so far. Wanderer is nice but is a bit slow despite being a 1 drop as it comes into play tapped even when reanimated. Breaker can discard Crawler or another zombie for a creature and the discarded things eventually come back. Also with tokens in play I can easily exploit his second ability. I really like Endless Ranks of the Dead and I get where you're coming from when you say use the Seer but I feel the enchantment is more fun to play. If using the Seer what came to mind was Grave Pact to do a super combo of Crawler + Colossus + Seer + Pact. Aiming a bit high I know but most of the games I play are with friends which allow me to do these things

I love mono-b zombie aggro decks - I think you've included a ton of the best cards available but I have some suggestions to improve the list.

Death Baron is a great way to buff all your zomblers and gives some great keywords as well. I consider this card a must have for any zombie tribal deck.

Dread Wanderer Since we are always an aggro deck, more one drop creatures are better than expensive enchantments like Endless Ranks of the Dead. Plus it has built in recursion making Ghoulcaller's Chant unnecessary!

Lord of the Accursed lets us make our zomblers hard to block for a turn 4 or 5 swing for the win! Value!

Diregraf Ghoul more 1 drops and a great body is always wanted by this deck! Zomblers!

Plague Belcher is a great way to turn dying zomblers into value.

Cemetery Reaper Probably the worst zombie lord but still, we are a zombie tribal deck and we love lords!

Overall I like your deck list. My best advice is to load up on more zombies and try to limit the tech and utility cards in favor of running more zombies, that way we can hit our curve more consistently and always have creatures to play.

I'm making something with a similar concept in black/blue mill. I'm going to run a zombie concept though and have The Scarab God as my commander. Focus on mill + zombie ramp with Grave Titan Coat of Arms Undead Alchemist Endless Ranks of the Dead to name a few

Some cards you can consider to making it more flavorful and threatening as well.

Hope that helps!

just because you win the game with a card doesn't make it good, though. and theres a million better ways to generate tokens for less mana.

also your scenario requires you have a sac outlet and enough tokens already in play to be able to kick josu before turn 10.

what makes a card good or bad is how good it is without the support of other cards. for example, Army of the Damned is good on its own because it can be cast late game or tossed away early game and use flashback, but josu vess is a meh 4 mana 4/5 menace, with an expensive kicker cost that only is usable on cast so there is no way of cheating the 10 mana requirement and it isnt able to be kicked if you Reanimate it
