Cool deck.

I think you need to get Diregraf Colossus into this build for the finale, maybe cut the Graveyard Marshal ?

Also, if you have 4 Thoughtseize , try and get a few of them into the main.

Liliana's Mastery , also take a look at Risen Executioner , he's a zombie lord, that gives you an extra "B" for devotion.

NerdPounder The only problem with cutting creatures is making Collected Company weaker. Blood scrivener has done some suprising work actually. Especailly when I have a rotting regisaur out or using 2 modes of collective brutality I end up hellbent quick. Drawing 2 is pretty sweet at that point. It helps in grindier matches against control or another midrange deck. I've thought about replacing it with Graveyard Marshal due to its stats, but it's ability isn't very useful in practice IME.

@Dreamweav3r, though I do agree with the notion this deck should play more 2-drops, I'm not really fond of Graveyard Marshal since I don't see myself activating him so much and while a 3/2 for 2 is pretty nice, I believe there are better options. I've opted to put in Lazotep Reaver since that card will provide 2 zombies most of the time which is nice for Cryptbreaker and our Zombie lords. Also I believe that Dark Salvation is a pretty strong card since you can also play it with X=0 to kill a creature for 1 mana, but I noticed that Murderous Rider was a bit slow, so I decided to cut him from the mainboard and replace The Elderspell in the sideboard for it. Finally I tried 22 lands, but I noticed a lot more mana struggles and I rather be safe than sorry (although 22 might still be the correct choice).

Either by trimming a land or a Dark Salvation I think adding just another couple 2 drops would be nice, thinking Graveyard Marshal .

Looks good! How has Phylactery Lich worked out? Your chance to have an artifact in hand by turn 3 is 33.6%, your chance of having one in play before turn 3 is half that, so the Lich might not be the most viable. Geralf's Messenger is a potential replacement though it is a bit pricey. Maybe one these instead? Dread Shade , Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Belle of the Brawl , Graveyard Marshal , Mardu Strike Leader .

Also, I could be wrong but Bontu's Monument does not seem fantastic here. I think a beefy creature that applies pressure every turn would be better. Or maybe something like Supernatural Stamina ?

I 100% agree with cutting Zealots. I understand it feels bad on T8 when you run out of gas, but there are plenty of other ways to generate Card Advantage without drawing cards. Graveyard Marshal , Midnight Reaper , and Isareth the Awakener come to mind although none of them are "vampires" so prolly not the most optimal fit. Maybe Oathsworn Vampire could fit a similar role... MAYBE

Ill-Gotten Inheritance is an excellent draft card but isn't really constructed playable.

Prison Realm would be an excellent upgrade over Luminous Bonds It takes creatures with passive abilities completely off the board has the added benefit of hitting walkers and the scry can help setup your next draw.

Radiant Destiny and Vanquisher's Banner are both solid Anthem Effects you could look at. Likewise Unbreakable Formation if cast as a Sorcery leaves counters behind.

All in all there is only so far you can take a deck like this and I would be careful investing too much cash-ola. The deck seems to be suffering from a bit of an identity crisis.

What store are you doing the FNM thing at? Maybe i could swing by.

Ok so I'm just going to address all previous comments in the same post to save time

I'm liking the idea of Carrion Feeder being SBT Diregraf Ghoul , and I'm also ok with cutting both copies of Undead Warchief to supplement the addition of extra Plague Belcher s

I'm am seeing a problem however of making sure that I kill the opponent faster than I can kill myself, so I feel like if changing over to the more sac oriented core, then I would most likely have to mainboard Gray Merchant of Asphodel (x2) to keep my life total happy, which tbh doesn't leave much room for the Undead Augur s but I can cut Nameless Inversion as well, because I would need the extra draw.

I get the idea of Prismatic Vista but I don't think it to be necessary at the moment, so you'll have to sell me on it more first. I'm not against it, but just not right now I think.

Also for now, no to Graveyard Marshal and Dreadhorde Invasion

I see a core of: 4x Carrion Feeder 4x Gravecrawler 4x Undead Augur 4x Geralfs Messenger 4x Plague Belcher

its an aggressive curve, you can sacrifice your zombies into carrion feeder, recuring gravecrawlers, damaging via belcher, drawing cards from augur, removing +1/+1 counters from your messengers with the belchers to sacrifice them again. Theres tons of noncombat reach in that core. Probably some cryptbreakers and lords in the mix for good measure. bloodghast could be good albeit not being a zombie. Or Graveyard Marshal .
