Creature — Zombie Horror
When Geralf's Mindcrusher enters the battlefield, target player puts the top five cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Undying (When this creature dies, if it had no +1/+1 counters on it, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control with a +1/+1 counter on it.)

- First, needs sac outlets. Kitchen Finks needs to actually die and come back. Viscera Seer is the staple option because it doesn't cost you anything, or Yahenni, Undying Partisan, but that won't get any +1/+1 growth due to Solemnity. Otherwise you can try low cost ones like Spawning Pit or value ones like Vampiric Rites.
- Second, I had the idea of running Woodfall Primus to go ahead and blow up all non-land permanents. Otherwise, Geralf's Mindcrusher can mill all opponents, Murderous Redcap straight up pings opponents to death.
- Last, you probably want more control or ramp for the early game until you setup your combo win. Birds of Paradise, Deathrite Shaman, Path to Exile, Spell Snare, Condemn, Abrupt Decay, Fatal Push.
- Extra: I realise that this turns it into more combo than anything else, but Solemnity enables Undying/Persist to just come back all the time. If modern had Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar you'd have infinite mana with any undying or persist creature.

Hey thanks for commenting on my Reddit post.
After looking over your list, I actually found a few more WinCon combos that you don't have include. They may all be a little too costly, but here we go:

I have some suggestions:
the two above go infinite mill with your Geralf's Mindcrusher
and personally, the real MVP of your deck, and the card that we all wish could be its commander is:
My deck I've worked on for quite some time. Take a look. maybe it will inspire some new ideas for ya. Gisa and Geralf, Corpses Everywhere!

Hey I run this commander. It's one of my favorite brews. I have more emphasis on grave filling, with Geralf's Mindcrusher, Altar of Dementia, and stuff like that. So I use Witchbane Orb to help protect my grave. I also run Laboratory Maniac as an alt win, which I have pulled off a couple times. Other random cards worth looking into are Noxious Ghoul, Secrets of the Dead, Dreamborn Muse, Scourge of Nel Toth, Urza's Incubator. If you wanna peruse my brew, its on my profile. Happy Necromancing!

@ amh62993 - This deck is horrific!
...bad puns aside, allow me to suggest a few things for your consideration.
Consuming Aberration is a card I think has a place in any Dimir build. Many think it is only relevant in mill decks, but really this beast just minds its own business. Sure, you won't win the game with this as your only mill engine. But you will definitely put your opponents at a disadvantage while you get a huge beater.
The following creatures are part of the Consuming Aberration Fan Club: Sewer Nemesis is the president; Nemesis of Reason is the treasurer; Nighthowler hypes up the group; Guiltfeeder is the jerk that makes fun of people outside the club; Geralf's Mindcrusher is the guy that only comes like twice, never to be seen again.
Phyrexian Revoker is wonderful commander hate (or any creature with an activated ability too good to let happen)
Mindleech Mass is expensive to put down, but that ability...
Void Maw can be a finisher late-game.
Greater Harvester (which honestly feels more like a Demon than a Horror)
And, of course, Phyrexian Librarian
Good luck, and happy deck-teching!

Hello there! You are playing my favorite commander! I've always loved the zombie tribe, and since I don't get that much of a chance to play 60's, I created a zombie edh. Gisa and Geralf are PERFECT for a true zombie deck. To get the full value though, you need to fill your grave and have basically only zombies. I appreciate you wanting to stick to the Innistrad blocks, but even with that limitation, you need to pack this thing FULL of zombies, and roll back a lot of non creature spells. You want to see bodies hit the field. You want that horde. Creatures like Geralf's Mindcrusher are perfect for this commander. You get the zombie body, it fills your grave, it's undying so dead on zombie flavor. Prized Amalgam NEEDS to be in this deck. If you cast another zombie from your grave, and Prized Amalgam is in there, you get him for free. That ability makes him a great target for any spells or abilities involving sacrificing creatures, since he just comes back again and again whenever you use Gisa and Geralfs ability, or do some other trick to cast from the grave. I would also recommend Witchbane Orb, to protect from the likes of Bojuka Bog and other such graveyard hate. A creature like Forgotten Creation would really help you to fill your grave. If you get to stock piling your grave, you can utilize cards like Advanced Stitchwing. Geralf's Masterpiece is another decent flyer you can get back from your grave even without your commander. Secrets of the Dead is another great synergy. Anyway, I hope some of my suggestions sound good to you. If you'd like to check out my gisa brew it's AINT NO PARTY like an UNDEAD party... It's not restricted to certain blocks, but if you were to ever lift that restriction cards like Dreamborn Muse, Urza's Incubator, and Patriarch's Bidding really turn up the heat!. But good on ya for going for that extra flavor. I like it.

Seeing your Esper deck I automatically decided Time to Reflect had to play. Fantastic removal in a zombie deck that I didn't know existed. Therefore I also added a Wayward Servant. For this I have to maintain the fetch lands and I also added Caves of Koilos, because any other alternative for / mana is beyond my reach at the moment.
I added a 3rd Diregraf Colossus and two Unbreathing Horde. While I can see the use for Lord of the Accursed in such a deck, I just prefer Risen Executioner and can't really fit him. Took out Wharf Infiltrator, Grave Titan, one Executioner and Geralf's Mindcrusher as you suggested.
I added two Ghoulcaller's Chant, since two zombies back in my hand for one mana is pretty great and two copies of Compelling Deterrence. Also took the Pulse of the Grid out for one copy of Necromancer's Stockpile. I wanted two but I can't really find a way to fit another, especially since I'm already risking too much playing only 22 lands with 3 colors, I feel.
Rooftop Storm was initially part of the plan (before I published it here), but now that the converted mana cost for creatures is pretty low I don't think it's worth adding it for the 6 mana it requires.
What do you think of it now? And remember, I'm also trying to work with what I have available since I'm not in a position to spend much on this.
Thanks a lot for all the help!
