Gravecrawler can't block.
You may cast Gravecrawler from your graveyard as long as you control a Zombie.

No Bloodghast - way too expensive.
You have too many cards that have narrow focus and require Horobi, Death's Wail . You want to minimize the amount of these cards. Things like Belbe's Armor , Staff of Nin and Icy Manipulator are fine because they are still useful without Horobi, Death's Wail . However, things like Squee's Toy , Infused Arrows and Scale of Chiss-Goria are too reliant on Horobi, Death's Wail to have value.
~Side note, remove Infused Arrows immediately! Removing a charge counter is part of the cost of the effect and you will only be able to cast it with one charge counter (you can only produce black mana with this deck).
Liquimetal Coating , is good if your meta looks at artifacts a lot or you have other interactions with artifacts. If you are JUST using it for the combo with Horobi, Death's Wail then take it out. The reason why I still include it is to get rid of land when paired with Xenic Poltergeist , or to kill other noncreature permanents with Xenic Poltergeist and another target spell with Horobi, Death's Wail out, or other creature removal.
Don't completely focus your deck on Horobi, Death's Wail . You'll find he will be killed A LOT if you focus him, or even upset your opponents' plans too much with him (he's very easy to deal with). You want to use him to throw a wrench in the most OP deck's plans so that your other opponents just play around him and make that OP player focus their resources on him. 9 times out of 10 you just want to sit there, build up and let your opponents take out themselves first. If you don't show that you're much threat (which you really can be with Horobi, Death's Wail ) then they'll leave you for later.
My meta isn't a fan of infinite combos, so I don't use any. However, if your meta uses them, you need to focus the players that have them and prevent them, and you should probably include some of your own. If you don't know any mono-black combos :
So I felt like starting a debate. This is NOT intended to cause an argument, but rather to learn more about the game.
Now my case.
Black has it all. Card advantage. Discard. Kill spells. Boardwipes. Lifegain. Aggro. Utility. Midrange. Reanimation. Even a freaking counterspell.
I'm sure there are plenty others, but I'm not out to write a book. Yet.
I would love to hear everyone else's opinions. And nobody be a bitch about it.
Did I mention Griselbrand ?
The first thing you must figure out is which format you want this deck to be legal in. Then it's much easier to suggest cards that would fit. But you could use some better lords as Zombie Master
, Death Baron
, Lord of the Undead
, Undead Warchief
etc. The mana base could also be upgraded with Watery Grave
, Sunken Ruins
, Drowned Catacomb
, Darkslick Shores
, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Polluted Delta and Underground Sea are both very expensive but it's something to consider in the future.
