Hey I'm probably going to buy this deck and have some of your listed upgrades. Do you have suggestions on cards to sub out for your listed upgrades? The cards I have are Abrupt Decay , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , Sol Ring , Solemn Simulacrum , Grave Titan , Demonic Tutor , Lightning Greaves , and Deathrite Shaman

olivebagel thanks so much for giving some feedback!

The reason I like Desecrated Tomb and Debt to the Deathless is because I'f you have a Phyrexian Altar out as well as a Gravecrawler and Rooftop Storm you can make infinite bats to sack and you can kill the table. But maybe you're right, maybe ita not reliable enough.

I took most of your advice. And Nim Deathmantle is definitely going in! I forgot about his synergy with Grave Titan

Thanks again! :)

As a general rule, adding things to slow your opponents down is a good way to start taking a deck to the next level. Idk how much search your meta has, but Ashiok, Dream Render works wonders against enemy tutors while also providing a level of graveyard hate.

Liliana, Death's Majesty is well under $10 and should be strongly considered for any zombie deck.

Unholy Grotto is a utility land you might be interested in, as it provides some recursion for your zombies.

You also seem to be relatively light on card draw or selection. Ponder , Preordain and Brainstorm are all good cantrips, especially if conjoined with shuffle effects like Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse . Personally, I like Night's Whisper and Chart a Course as two-for-ones, but I see you're running Phyrexian Arena ; that is a solid permanent which produces card advantage. Graveborn Muse is also a similar consideration, although the life loss may need to be countered by a Whip of Erebos or the like. In a similar vein, something like Slate of Ancestry may work well with the token-producers you have; Curse of Disturbance seems a good consideration to add to the token-package. It's worth noting that a large majority of EDH games are decided by card advantage.

I'm not sure how well Crypt of Agadeem works; I've had poor results with it. You may want to just run a basic land instead.

The Undermine slot is likely better served with Sinister Sabotage . In a format with 40 life, making an opponent lose 3 life is equivalent to draining them 1.5 life in a 20 life format. In all likelihood, you may just want the ability to filter your draws or (ideally) to bin a zombie, then cast it from the graveyard with Gisa and Geralf without needing to worry about wasting a draw on it.

I've also not had good experience with 3-mana artifact mana-producers. I suggest Dimir Signet and Talisman of Dominance instead of Mana Geode and Chromatic Lantern . Chromatic Lantern really only becomes strictly necessary in 4- or 5-color decks, and since you're 2, it seems superfluous.

I also notice you're running Xenograft and Arcane Adaptation . I don't think these cards are necessary, especially if you cut Call to the Grave for something like Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos .

I always like seeing a list with Exquisite Blood in it; you should run Sanguine Bond as well, as these two together produce an auto-win. Also, if you put a way to grant lifelink (such as the aforementioned Whip of Erebos ), Sanguine Bond begins to act as a pseudo damage-doubler.

Depending on your meta and whether there are other creature-based black decks, Bad Moon may be a good insert as an anthem effect. Similarly, barring an over-abundance of artifact decks, you may want to include Ashes to Ashes as a two-for-one removal spell.

Since UMA came out, Entomb is only a few dollars; Buried Alive acts similarly. So I advise adding that, as well as reanimation effects like Animate Dead , Necromancy or Reanimate . Being able to produce a Grave Titan turn two is always a massive plus. But don't feel limited to just Grave Titan , though; things like Helldozer are good reanimation targets as well. If you just want big, black fatties, Massacre Wurm and Phyrexian Obliterator are two of my favorites (though they're relatively expensive).

Good luck with the zombies. The living dead are bosses.

Grave Titan is costly and doesn't help your combo plan, but a great powerhouse and works well with sac outlets. The new Liliana, Dreadhorde General also ought to work well in the list. I also think Lingering Souls could be removed for Pitiless Plunderer from the maybeboard. Sweet deck, and a +1 from me!

Crypt Ghast will make your big X spells easier to cast (and also plug more mana in them), and if you want to spent more moneys Nirkana Revenant is really cool

I'd do Talisman of Dominance --> Crypt Ghast .

Sundering Titan is a dope card but not might always hit if they're playing fast lands or check lands, but will definitely hit shocks; and probably only one or two. Grave Titan might be a better boy to slam down, or if you wanna be super janky, Josu Vess lich night . Soul of New Phyrexia is also dope

Hi, I have tried out the list and really enjoy it. I noticed recently you removed the Su-Chi and Marionette Master engines and just seem to have Grave Titan now for infinite mana. Am I missing something? Or how are you going infinite now to win?
