I might try Gravecrawler out in place of Diregraf Ghoul. It will just add 9.00 dollars to the deck.

Blood Scrivener official rulings -

Any time you are instructed to draw more than one card, you draw them one at a time. For example, if you control Blood Scrivener and have no cards in hand and youre instructed to draw two cards, your first card draw is replaced by drawing two cards and losing 1 life, then youll draw the second card from the original instruction. In total, youll draw three cards and lose 1 life.

Each additional Blood Scrivener you control will effectively add one card and 1 life lost. Say you control two Blood Scriveners and would draw a card while you have no cards in hand. The effect of one Blood Scrivener will replace the event draw a card with draw two cards and lose 1 life. The effect of the other Blood Scrivener will replace the drawing of the first of those two cards with draw two cards and lose 1 life. Youll draw two cards and lose 1 life, then draw another card and lose another 1 life.

Paired with Cryptbreaker when you get a few of these cards combining, you can draw a lot of cards. Since the deck runs really cheap you can effectively cast your drawn cards in most situations by turn 4. This is budget though, so it's not exactly a top tier deck in terms of effeciency.

Gravecrawler I've considered adding, but I just don't know if he will fit in because I don't want to sacrifice any of the effects that are going on in the deck.

Gravecrawler is definitely not budget friendly, unfortunately.

Sorry to post again so soon, but I may have found a little bit of something that could work. I have Prized Amalgam and Gravecrawler in play sets. I was doing some browsing and it seems there are a couple legendary zombies that are either rakdos or grixis that might be viable. I am considering a zombie deck based off the idea that I can cast a looting spell and get the zombies with free recursion in the yard, and then bring them back in the cheap. An ideal turn sequence would be like turn 1 Faithless Looting discarding a Gravecrawler and a Prized Amalgam. Turn 2 cast Tymaret, the Murder King. Turn three cast gravecrawler from the grave and get Prized Amalgam for free. Any thoughts?

well I do have Liliana of the Veil on the sideboard for control decks, but I feel like I've achieved critical mass on zombies that I can make this work. With Dread Wanderer I have 20 zambs, which turns on both Gravecrawler and the Lord in question. Ultimately it is of course a mono black devotion deck, but I'm just trying to go a bit more aggro here. Gifted Aetherborn probably does deserve a sideboard slot though, I'll have to make room for that.

hey :) i think the modern zombie decks tend to run more aggro rather than control; lands that don't come in to play tapped, and more 1-cost spells/creatures. i personally don't like playing aggro decks, because they make me sick, so i'm going to suggest some more control/midrange stuff for you.

Sorry, didn't see you already had Gravecrawler in there. I would replace Butcher Ghoul with Dread Wanderer instead.

I would definitely replace Dead Weight with Tragic Slip, replace Butcher Ghoul with Gravecrawler and get rid of Trespasser's Curse sense it seems pretty random in this deck and maybe replace it with Dark Prophecy or something like that because you don't have any other card draw.
