Graf Harvest Discussion

I'm not exactly sure what you're trying theme you're trying to go with. I'm going to assume you want to have B/W aggro-zombies, and base my suggestions around that.
First of all, I would recommend putting some more land in there. I know you're deck does have much mana cost, but you can still get mana screwed. Secondly, I would put in some dual colored lands, if you have any.
Secondly, I would personally make this a Zombie tribal deck, so I would remove Augmenting Automaton, Devoted Crop-Mate, Fourth Bridge Prowler, and Gonti, Lord of Luxury, as none of them help your zombies at all.
There are quite a few zombie cards that I think would have a good place in this deck. Particularly Wayward Servant and Graf Harvest. Wayward Servant would allow you to deal some damage to your opponents each time you play or bring back a Zombie, and let you gain some life as well. Graf Harvest would make it much more of a pain to prevent your horde of zombies from eating your opponents brains, as they would all have menace.
I feel like this deck needs a little more removal, so I would look at Cruel Revival as it kills your opponents things and allows you to bring back your own. Dark Salvation would let you create more zombies and potentially kill a creature, or weaken it enough to kill it with a token.

Thanks for the feedback netdecksandchill!! I have several of the cards you suggested - 4 different Liliana's, 1 Grasp of Darkness, Dread Wanderer... I am really interested in getting a bunch of token zombies out on the field as quickly as possible. I know Stir the Sands is pricey, but getting three out at once is so rewarding! I just got From Under the Floorboards for that reason and it is only a 5 drop so I'll swap those out. And Graf Harvest just came in the mail. :)
Hopefully I'll be ready for FNM at my kitchen table tomorrow night. Thanks again.

Dread Wanderer is meh. For 1 it should come in untapped, otherwise I could use Diregraf Ghoul. The reanimation isn't "casting", so it wouldn't combo well with Diregraf Colossus, and if I have 3 mana, I could cast something more useful like Geralf's Messenger, or Liliana, the Last Hope.
The deck is faster than the list presents. Playtest, and see if you don't like it. Thanks for the input!

First suggestion is to cut all the cards that are creatures that are not zombies or zombie related. If you have a theme you are going for, usually better not to bog it down with cards that don't help the deck idea.
Creature cards to to consider or put more copies in:
Lord of the Accursed: you should try to get 4 copies in the deck if possible. It makes a zombie theme deck much stronger just because you get the +1/+1 for all your other zombies in play.
Wayward Servant: again 4 copies because of how you should have all your cards being zombie related means this will sap your opponent and give some extra so you can afford to take hits.
Cryptbreaker: a good one drop that can turn cards in hand into tokens. Also useful because you can use it to draw.
Diregraf Colossus: is a creature that is useful cast earl since he makes it so you can get a token army going. also useful if drawn late because it becomes bigger for each zombie creature in your grave.
Dread Wanderer (site link not working, you can view it here): is useful if you can get them because they have the ability to come back from the grave and are a decent body for a 1 drop.
Graf Harvest: gives all your zombies menace as a 1 drop enchantment seems really useful and also allows you to exile creatures in your grave to create tokens. Suggest no more then 2 copies in the deck as drawing extra copies becomes useless.
Dark Salvation: a decent control spell that becomes much more useful since you are a zombie deck.
Liliana's Mastery: is another useful card that gives all your zombies +1/+1, but also generates you three 2/2 tokens.
Cards that must come out:
Useless: Faith of the Devoted: you only have one card with cycling in the deck for this to work with. Not worth running for that.
These are some quick card suggestions. If you need help finding more zombie related cards, I suggest searching other decks people have posted here or use the website http://gatherer.wizards.com. My list of suggestions do not contain all the cards you might really want, but should help get you going in the right direction. Best of luck with making the deck work. if you have any questions feel free to ask and I will try to help as well as I can.
