Pirew on Modern Dimir Zombies

You have to understand, Adrekan, that sequencing of event in this deck is critical. Diregraf Colossus enter the battle field with counters, which are permanent, and the zombies check only happens once upon resolution, so the key is casting him before recurring, so that he gets a buff and you get zombies out. Not only that, but zombies get removed all the time, and I run a couple sacrifice outlets myself, leaving not shortage of ways to get zombies in. A turn two Collective Brutality escalated twice with Gravecrawler and Prized Amalgam leads into a turn three colossus drop, and turn 4 recast, plus Death Baron, which results in 20 power on board , all with deathtouch, for turn 5, when you can Whip of Erebos for lifelink damage. Even with extensive changes, I've yet to find any suitable replacement for colossus, and he fits quite well in that slot.

The easiest is grave titan. but you need a sac outlet for it. really anything that makes zombie tokens with havengul, storm and ashnod's altar. pay 1 to target titan, play for free with rooftop, then sac him to the altar. use the mana from the sac to pay for havengul again. each time you could actually recast another zombie. also, you could gravestorm if you run havengul, phyrexian altar, and Gravecrawler.

I would add vampire hexmage. Some 1 and 2 drop costed creatures for some of the really expensive ones in your deck. I would actually keep exquisite blood and cut something like phyrexian gargantua. Some ideas for low mana creatures:

I would have to disagree with you there Adrekan, from what it looks like, Gravecrawler is one of the most important pieces to the deck, and the most efficient way a triggering Prized Amalgam. Also the side board is also not standard at all. So I feel that if this deck was standard, it would not nearly be as efficient. I have seen many standard zombie decks, they are too slow...

I love zombros, but I highly suggest you cut the Dark Ritual and Zombie Master so that this deck is modern legal. They're the only cards in the mainboard I see that's not legal, and I think you would be able to play in events and what have you with it :) plus there's something fun about having a modern deck, regardless of how "good" it is! I also would hihgly suggest maybe getting Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, and Lord of the Undead they're all absurdly powerful. +1 for a sweet deck.

Thank you for the suggestion, Brightest_Day. I have tried Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury, before, and I might try it again. However, using the haste from Dragonlord Kolaghan can really impact the board, with hasted dragons making it hard for the to react to the damage, instead of having to wait for a turn while the opponent kills the dragon. I also believe that the second passive can work when someone casts a creature spell from their graveyard, like Gravecrawler and Risen Executioner.

Don't be afraid to try crazy things either! I love breaking away from the norm. Mesmeric Orb is pretty potent. Could fuel an early Patriarch's Bidding, disrupt opponents, or even fill your graveyard full of cards like Gravecrawler. I would love to see a pseudo mill engine for zombies since blue is present. Even with Stitcher Geralf you can create some awesome effects.

I really like your deck and certainly have a +1 for you. Great post

I'm not exactly sure where your budget lies for this deck, but I will do my best to give a broad spectrum of suggestions.

Untapping Grimgrin: Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Thousand-Year Elixir, and Reassembling Skeleton.

Answers to Pithing Needle and Maze of Ith effects: Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Gate to Phyrexia, Xenic Poltergeist, Chain of Vapor, and Cyclonic Rift.

Extra tutors: Buried Alive, Corpse Connoisseur, Entomb, and Diabolic Tutor aren't terribly expensive.

Rooftop Storm combos with Gravecrawler.

Ghoulcaller Gisa is great at making zombie tokens. Lastly some life gain may be good, I would start with either Exsanguinate or some sort of life gain equipment like Loxodon Warhammer.
