First attempt at Zombies, any suggestions?

Get a pile of zombies out early. Add to that with Endless Ranks of the Dead

Eat Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead with Carrion Feeder .

Keep my hand full with Undead Augur and Cryptbreaker .

Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead bounce back and Gisa and Geralf adds to that effect and stacks my graveyard with creatures that can be brought back.

Undead Warchief and Death Baron plusses everyone up.

Finish 'em off with Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Can one get some more info on the include of Contamination ?

The cost of sacrificing a creature seems high in a deck with only 10 creatures and no token making. Although Gravecrawler and reanimation somewhat minimizes this complication, is it working out.

From the perspective of a non cEDH meta, but rather an optimized one, is Contamination worth an include in that type of build?

Also, are there any cards that you are considering but are not running or haven't mentioned in the primer?

Maybe using cards like Sidisi, Undead Vizier so you can tutor cards and sac stuff you need in the grave, Scheming Symmetry , Phyrexian Delver , Bolas's Citadel , Buried Alive to tutor your wincons to the gy (like Necrotic Ooze Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion and you win in the spot), Animate Dead , Dark Petition , Carrion Feeder , Gravecrawler , Living Death / Rise of the Dark Realms (that last one is kinda expensive) I'd suggest those as black cards. Using Sol Ring is more useful than Worn Powerstone , Expedition Map to tutor any land to hand, Tormod's Crypt bc gy hate is useful, Gilded Lotus 3 mana by 5 isn't bad, Thought Vessel , Aetherflux Reservoir wincon tho. The mana base kinda concerns me by the amount of basic swamps, you could use something like Cabal Stronghold , Reliquary Tower , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds even if it's a mono color deck, being able to shuffle and get lands out of the deck will be useful, less dead draws. Sword of the Animist is always useful if you don't have ramp.

Sparko: You missed the big super easy scarab god infinite combo, which to be fair is the big easy zombie infinite combo in most decks, Gravecrawler -any random zombie- Phyrexian Altar - anything that interacts with it leaving or entering the battlefield, such as € Bontu's Monument , Diregraf Captain or whatever you feel like.

Strangelove on Syr Konrad EDH

+1 my guy. @Your post

I wanted to second Necropotence , great combo, as well as the classic Painter's Servant / Grindstone .

Darkblast is probably playable.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Zombie... goes infinite.

Putrid Goblin / Lesser Masticore + Metallic Mimic + Sacrifice... also goes infinite... maybe this and Gravecrawler could push you into a soft Zombie Tribal subtheme?

Have you considered Living Death or Twilight's Call ?

Lifeline or Champion of Stray Souls are similar to a Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker build.

Phyrexian Reclamation is a great way to access your graveyard.

You could go crazy and try the Lich cards or maybe Forbidden Crypt .

Geth, Lord of the Vault

You really need more draw and to that end try Thought Gorger / Geier Reach Sanitarium / Null Profusion / Harvester of Souls

I would remove most of your milling artifacts to make room for some of the above, more draw, more removal, and 4-5 board wipes ( Boompile and Oblivion Stone effects are a must in monoblack). You have strong combos with Syr Konrad and I would focus on drawing/ tutoring into those while you control the board a bit more. With more interaction it'll be less of a glass cannon and more fun to play with and against.

Good luck!

xaarvaxus on Varina - Zombie Tribal

No Risen Executioner ? This looks like a zombie swarm style deck so the Executioner would be a good fit here as you shouldn't be blocking much. 4/3 for 4, can get itself out of the graveyard [with Varina helping to control the cost] and is another anthem for the horde.

Without either Entomb or Buried Alive this trick might not work so well but in my Grimgrin deck I run Wonder to help solve the 'can't block those #[email protected] flyers' problem that an army of ground-pounders runs up against.

Swapping Phyrexian Altar in for Ashnod's Altar would give you an aristocrats style combo drain finisher using Gravecrawler to sac for and then recasting with Plague Belcher or Diregraf Captain in play. May not be your cup of tea or in your budget but it does make for a pretty good backup plan if the board stalls out.
