Thank you JaysomeDecks! Explaining the stack exploit revealed new possibilities with Merieke. I will consider digging deeper into this mechanic and update the deck if it works. I'll try your suggestions and add following as well:

i have a hard time cutting cards. As for now i could/would drop those:

Last night in a four-person game, got the combo off. I had Undead Alchemist, Altar of Dementia and Geth, Lord of the Vault on the field. Tutored for and dropped Altar of the Brood, then used Geth to put a 6-drop from opponent's graveyard on to the field. Opponent milled 6 and I got two Zombies. With the Brood, each opponent milled three, got another Zombie and another mill. At one point, it stalled so I sacked several Zombies to Altar of Dementia and restarted the whole process. Ended up winning the game without attacking. Had 47 Zombie tokens on the field and all opponents were milled.

The deck has a solid skeleton, though you may have gone a little over-board on the sacrifice/reanimation. If that's the road you're bent on taking, then I'd at least recommend a Nevinyrral's Disk and an Oblivion Stone, seeing as without them (or similar effect), you're dead to a Rest in Peace. Call to the Kindred doesn't do it for me either. Without Conspiracy out, you only run 14 actual zombies, so your odds of whiffing are real. On that topic, more creatures (specifically zombies) may benefit you anyway if your main plan is to "run people over with them." Thankfully, you've chosen a tribe well-stocked with playable monsters. Empty the Pits strikes me as too anti-synergistic to really get decent value out of. You could jam a bunch of off-color fetch lands to help fill the yard with chaff, but even then it still may not pull its weight. I understand that you can discard in chunks with Forgotten Creation and also produce infinite mana, but that's a four-card combo, which is a rather tall order to justify the prohibitive costs of the card. As you already run Ashnod's Altar and Grave Titan, you could include Nim Deathmantle to create the same effect (infinite zombies and infinite mana), while also adding in a "reanimation" spell and a means to change a key creatures type to zombie (to cheat Noxious Ghoul and Call to the Grave).
A few other individual card upgrades: Rune-Scarred Demon is a fine guy, but Sidisi, Undead Vizier costs two less, fits the tribe, and even allows you to sacrifice yet more stuff. Likewise, Solemn Simulacrum is a value house, but Corpse Harvester yields greater card advantage and effect while being a zombie. Geth, Lord of the Vault may be do a reasonable Beacon of Unrest impersonation for you.I'm always glad to see other zombie players, so best of luck in your conquests. If you get ever stuck or can't figure something out, feel free to message me or check out my list. Cheers, and God bless.- McDeity

Yeah I basically have to commit whole hog to a theme, otherwise I won't have enough card to make an impact.

If we were going face smash what would you run? I'd think having Oona blackguard, Scion of Oona, Glen Elendra Liege, plus dire undercurrents would be a decent start. Not sure what other beatstick types to put in. Perhaps Dimir Doppelganger, Geth, Lord of the Vault,and Sepulchral Primordial.

So we are looking to cut 27 cards. I would start with cutting 3 lands. Probably some basics. That'll get you closer to 37. I think going down to 37 creatures would be a good idea as well. You want to be creature heavy for the Sidisi hits.Geth, Lord of the Vault is a good card. But you have also said that you have never been able to use him. I like him as much as you do. But if you can't ever use him then why bother? Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip as much a her minus abilities help you recur creatures they will be hard to get too and will cost you by discarding, and you deck isn't specked to gain from discarding cards. Butcher of Malakir would be better with some sac outlets which you are not running. However it does do well with all the tokens you could make. So I am conflicted. Deathgreeter could be replaced with something like Zulaport Cutthroat. I am having trouble seeing more on he creature front as of right now. Moving on the non creature spells. Morbid Curiosity on average you will only get 3 cards from sacing a non token creature. Grim Return while a good card is super situational and I think I have only seen you play it once. I know that is only 8 suggestions but that is what i see for my first round that I would cut

Mairon_Bauglir on Gaining control of a creature ...

Hello, I am wondering how ownership and graveyard rules apply to situations. like if Geth, Lord of the Vault puts an opponent's Relentless Dead under your control, then it died and you paid it's first saving effect cost, would it return to your hand or your opponents since they technically owned that creature? I hope I phrased this question well enough as it is a rather confusing topic and I would appreciate any help on clarifying it.

So Geth, Lord of the Vault poses an interesting problem for me. Yeah, he's amazing, and a good fit, but is he the RIGHT fit? If I were to add him, I'd likely cut Endbringer, which can be a devastating miller... I'll give it some thought.

Dramatic reversal + Isochron Scepter is cute, but I wouldn't run Scepter unless my whole deck was built to utilize it. I think the combo is too hard to pull off, for something that doesn't Auto-Win the game.. It's cute though... Thanks.
