Thanks naynay666 for your feedback!

The couple Gravecrawler/Mutavault will be a good infinite source of cheap corpses (cheap in mana, not in money !).

I had Carrion Feeder in the deck before and i replace it by Flesh Carver. But you made a point, it is nothing compare to the feeder.

I really like Gisa's Mechanic, so i'll keep it! (:p)

Sadly Bitterblossom is out of my budget, same for Phyrexian Arena and Dark Confidant...I'll take Sign in Blood.

About splashing, if i do it, i would lean toward red, but i will look into it later.

4 Gravecrawler 4Mutavault would help tremendously!

Demon and Gisa are both cool, but I would consider dropping them or atleast Gisa for 3 Gurmag Angler. He is great and at the rate you should be filling your graveyard you should be able to get him out early.

Flesh Carver is cool, but he's no Carrion Feeder. Feeder costs 1 instead of 3 and activates for free.

Ophiomancer is a constant supply of bodies. Bitterblossom is another but costs a bit more. Blossom is cheaper to cast and harder to remove.

Shadows of the past seems slow and underwhelming. You really need a way to draw cards with this bad boy. Sign in Blood and Night's Whisper are the best budget solutions. Phyrexian Arena is the next $tep up followed by Dark Confidant

First major update:

Firstly, some tribal stuff that was just sorta there (ex. Death Baron) were gutted in favor of more overall synergy, including more sac outlets, including Voidmage Prodigy, Viscera Seer, and Ghoulcaller Gisa.

The Wizards combo was removed due to an argument in my meta. As a result, I have added extra uses to the Zombies combo. Because Gravecrawler is sent to the graveyard and cast from the graveyard semi-forever, Storm reaches extreme absurdities. As such, Tendrils of Agony and Bitter Ordeal serve as wincons, and Ordeal can just neuter decks if I want the game to go on for longer.

Slightly more ramp and loads more card advantage were added. With this, I can more consistently reach my combo as well as hold a bucket full of answers.

I built a pretty savage U/B Zombie deck for modern once. It was only semi-competitive, but was hella fun to play. I splashed blue for Diregraf Captain and Countersquall. I knew I wanted some form of countermagic, and Countersquall fit my gameplan ridiculously well, because the goal was to grind my opponent down with small bits of life loss through that counterspell, Geth's Verdict, Blood Artist, Geralf's Messenger, Diregraf Captain's ability etc. Then since my creature-base was very resilient to dying because of Undying, Gravecrawler (with four Mutavaults to ensure I always had a zombie), Bloodghast, and Butcher Ghoul, I was able to run sacrifice outlets that are usually unconventional because sacrificing board state is usually not so good. I was able to legitimately use Altar's Reap, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, and even Demonmail Hauberk LOL. Four mainboard Tragic Slip is pretty savage too in this deck.

Giving all my dudes swampwalk would be pretty legit! I'd certainly find something to cut for it.

Maybe? The fact it makes your board of Gravecrawlers and Diregraf Ghouls unlockable with Urborg is nifty. But you'd need a Lord that gives +1/1 to really kill decks as fast as you need to in modern.

Maybe play a few Gravecrawler's or Geralf's Messenger? Idk.

There's also Gravecrawler as a solid black One-Drop, you need to have another zombie in play to be able to bring him back from the graveyard though.

Guul Draz Vampire is an option too, however it's no good until your opponent has 10 or less life.

EDIT: Oh wait, Gravecrawler can't block either x.x
