Some good lands to add that are not to expensive for your deck might be Isolated Chapel, Drowned Catacomb and Glacial Fortress. Otherwise just run some more basic lands instead of those tapped lands, even in three colours that is in my opinion a better optioin.

Also for the zombies, you should run Noxious Ghoul and one of my favourties Corpse Harvester a great tutor and sac outlet. In combination with Gravecrawler that card is just amazing.

A good add for card draw might be Phyrexian Arena a bit expensive and hard to find but the card is so good almost an auto include for any black deck I make. I hope you can use these recommendations.

Thanks for the suggestions Logics and Doal90!

I like Hedron Crab, but I don't think there is room for it in this build. I'm already pushing it by including so many non-zombies. I don't want Gravecrawlers to be dead cards in the graveyard. I'll think about it tho.

And yeah, I wish Carrion Feeder was legal...but the Viscera Seers are relatively useful with scry. I wish there was a cheaper zombie sacrifice outlet other than Nantuko Husk.

I considered Dakmor Salvage, but I avoided it because it comes into play tapped, as you mentioned. But you are right about the late game. Another advantage is that the self-milling costs no mana. I'll think about that too.

Also, Desecrated Tomb is great for this build, but I just haven't been able to make room for it on the sideboard.

First of all I'd suggest immediately cutting the Infectious Horrors, Diamond Mare, Urgoros, Skymarch Bloodletter and Knight of Malice - these don't really seem to fit (especially as one-ofs). Since you're playing Dark Ritual three is definitely a magic number and you should get some more threatening creatures here, at the very least another two copies of Geralf's Messenger and perhaps three Vampire Nighthawks. Your other creature slots have lots of options depending on how you want to use Kalitas and other powerful creatures. If you keep the broodlord then you want more cheaper vampires like Gatekeeper of Malakir or Gifted Aetherborn (with their built-in abilities allowing you to free up spell slots); while swapping your Liliana to her "of the Dark Realms" incarnation and adding playsets of Leechridden Swamp and Korlash, Heir to Blackblade would build on the "lands matter" subtheme Ob Nixilis, the Fallen plus the Blackblade have in common. Leechriddens have won me games. Speaking of mana, I wouldn't bother with the Jungle Hollows: this is Legacy, so if they're only there to enable flashback on one card you're probably better off with basics as they'll always come in untapped and have synergy with other cards like Corrupt and Mutilate. For Kalitas, the first thing that comes to mind here is Call the Bloodline plus any of the many graveyard-castable zombies (e.g. Gravecrawler) plus Blade of the Bloodchief/Eternal Thirst to maximize those counters. Plus maybe Grave Pact? Finally, here's the obligatory link to_my_mono-black legacy deck: The Discard Dominatrix, which might give you some ideas even if it's based more around discarding. Hope that helps!

Hellspark Elemental would be awesome! / Burning Vengeance deck with Gravecrawler looks pretty aggro and gives access to good removal, but lacks speed and consistent card draw. I could think of Faithless Looting and Shattered Perception, but it looks like a dangerous game to play.

Maveryk and PhyrexianPreator, thanks for the suggestions, but I think you guys are not seeing the synergy I'm trying to accomplish with Plague Belcher and Blasting Station. I want to sacrifice my Gravecrawlers and Stitcher's Suppliers to trigger the self-mill, and I can trigger life-loss with Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher. I run so many Stations because they can be discarded with self-mill, and I'd like to come across at least one during the late game if I have a Crawler on the board.

Here's an example of how I can get a combo going with the Crawlers and Stations - with a Wayward Servant or Captain/Belcher, I sac the Crawler for 1 damage, and trigger 1 life loss. If two Servants/Captains/Belchers, that's 3 net life loss for 1 mana. So if I have 3 mana available, I can inflict 9 net life loss...etc. And Aether Vial makes it easy to play Captains/Belchers without using mana.

I've avoided Endless Ranks of the Dead because it is too expensive at 4 mana for this low-mana build, and it is too slow for my taste.

Also, I'm not a fan of Unbreathing Horde. It comes into play as a 0/0, and creature cards in my graveyard won't stay there for too long. That's why I'm running the Skaab Ruinators and Prized Amalgams.

If you want to lower the curve of your deck Attrition, Relentless Dead, Gravecrawler, Undercity Informer, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Stronghold Assassin and Flesh Carver all help lower your curve, while either giving you more thrulls, or more things to do with your thrulls. If you want mana, Black Market is wonderful, and Expedition Map or Diabolic Tutor can help you find your Cabal Coffers in a hurry.

I would suggest Gravecrawler for your one combo. Diregraf Captain or a similar effect and Gravecrawler with Rooftop Storm for infinite drain or direct damage via etb or ltb triggers, depending on what zombie besides the crawler you use.

Well as far as Filth , I feel you grab it over Wonder if you have Urborg. Though consistency may be an issue, felt it would be worth a shot to try.

And Entomb, this would just up consistency. You would be able to grab Gravecrawler, Filth, or Wonder, etc. depending on what the situation calls for.

Hope entomb at least helps.
