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

As the title says I really need help with building a deck. I'm trying to have it be a mono black. I want to have creatures that have sac abilities. Also I would like some creatures like Gravecrawler and creatures with "when a creature dies" ability. I'm also thinking about creatures like Soulless One please help
Vengevine . That creature is awesome. I tried using it in other modern decks, but then I end up making it a dredge deck. It seems that card was made for dredge! And the look I get when I chain cast Gravecrawler s and suddenly, 4x Vengevine s trigger and enter the battlefield on turn 3.... Priceless.
thats very nice deck and a good infinite combo there. +1.
i recently made a deck with an infinite combo as well but in a controlling way rather than killing it's called "infinite backdoor entrance (>.<)!"
Gravecrawler might also be a nice addition, just because it's a 2/1 for one mana and you can actually play it directly from your graveyard.
Zombie Infestation can be quite fun, since discarding creatures you can actually summon from the graveyard isn't such a big loss.
Also, Cemetery Reaper , because well... See for yourself.
I love this deck.
I've been playing a similar deck for a long time on mtgo, and it's a lot of fun. I don't know how long you've been playing the deck, but I have a few suggestions.
First, Apostle's Blessing is extremely important. I used to only run 2 until I realized how good it is. It protects your fiend or magus from removal and can make it unclockable. that being said, Artful Dodge is good in theory, but isn't that effective because it being a sorcery is a huge drag, and you will often not want to have to rely on producing blue mana. I would drop the Artful Dodge s for another Apostle's Blessing and another Ground Rift .
In the land base, if you drop the need to make blue mana (so if you drop Artful Dodge ) you won't need the 'produce any color' lands or the Steam Vents . You're probably gonna want shocklands like Marsh Flats or Arid Mesa to find Blood Crypt s instead of Steam Vents . I also think a 4th Blackcleave Cliffs could be good, and a few basic swamps in case of a Blood Moon or Ghost Quarter .
As far as your sideboard, Marrow Shards is extremely good against aggro. For example, it's amazing against a deck throwing Bloodghast and Gravecrawler at all game, or against any token deck. If all else fails, it's another pump to your Nivmagus Elemental or Kiln Fiend . Young Pyromancer is also really good if you need to adapt your strategy. It's really good against control decks, for example. You could also put in Surgical Extraction , but i'm not entirely sure if it's necessary.
Sorry for leaving such a lengthy message, I just really like this deck and want to give as much feedback as possible. Nice to see someone else playing it :D
Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is ,my least favorite to play against considering the infinite combo with Gravecrawler and Rooftop Storm . My least favorite to play is non existent at the moment since all I have is a Vorel of the Hull Clade and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa deck and love both differently
