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

I run something similar, Ghastly Grave Clamp . I really love an opening hand of 2 lands, Dark Ritual , Buried Alive , Skullclamp and at least 1 Gravecrawler or Slitherhead . Turn 1 can get out of hand Swamp , Dark Ritual , Buried Alive and toss 3 Bloodghast into the bin.
I guess what I am saying is maybe give Buried Alive a run.
Feel free to check out mine. Always willing to take suggestions into consideration.
+1 from me...
If you would, can you look at my deck Aggrivate and Decimate and give some feedback? Thanks.
I want to trade you my Sliver Hivelord and Venom Sliver (total of $12.18) for your Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , Inferno Titan , Gravecrawler , Elvish Harbinger , Lim-Dul's Vault , and (only if it's from Commander 2013) Thousand-Year Elixir (total of $11.97). Post on my wall with what you think and feel free to look at my binder as well.
why no Sol Ring
- ramp is good
some other suggested cards are:
Rite of Replication - combos well with many of the creature cards in the deck, especially Noxious Ghoul when kicked
Havengul Lich - recursion of Zombies good
Cemetery Reaper - buffs your zombies, and stops your opponents from getting their creatures back, and tokens
Volrath's Stronghold - if not out of budget it goes in any black deck with creatures
Plaguebearer - repeatable targeted removal
Gravespawn Sovereign - lets take their dead creatures
Corpse Harvester - can kill a token or Gravecrawler to tutotr for a zombie
Plague Wind or In Garruk's Wake - for an opponents only board wipe
I would drop Gravecrawler and Graveborn Muse . You only have 7 zombies, which I think is too few to reliably get value out of these. Thatcher Revolt is meh, and requires 9 mana to get full value from. Cadaver Imp and Crypt Angel are underpowered. Consider Soul Stair Expedition if you want that effect. I'm generally not a fan of Phyrexian Delver and Pilgrim's Eye . Chancellor of the Forge tends to be very hit-or-miss, and somewhat counter-synergistic. There are better draw sources that Sign in Blood , Lyzolda herself being one. I would recommend adding Tempt with Vengeance , Skullclamp , and Elemental Mastery . You currently also have two copies of Reassembling Skeleton .
Zombiepox is a somewhat established deck that runs Geralf's Messenger .
In modern u need to run another color with black to make it competitive. I like green for Abrupt Decay and Maelstrom Pulse but other colors could work as well. Something that allows u to deal with artifacts and enchantments.
Zombiepox includes playsets of Lotleth Troll Gravecrawler and Bloodghast with Vengevine as your finisher. Smallpox is the utility and combined with Liliana of the Veil as the engine of your deck u could do some nice damage.
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled combos really well with your Blood Speaker . Sacrifice the speaker to tutor a demon and Nixilis gets a +1/+1 counter. I think he is one of the better legendary demons for use as a commander, the trick is to get more steam out of his ability. More sacrifice outlets perhaps, or creatures you can sac and bring back over and over. If you went a demon/ zombie tribal theme the Gravecrawler would be a useful creature. In a pinch the Bloodghast will do too.
Some non-demon suggestions. Since you are running mono black the Strata Scythe , Lashwrithe , and Nightmare Lash out to be auto includes. If you decide to go with the sacrifice option I would strongly suggest the Butcher of Malakir , Grave Pact , and Dictate of Erebos . I run the Woebringer Demon and Desecration Demon in my Thraximundar deck. They would work just as well in a mono black deck based around sacrificing critters.
