Just a few more; Season of the Witch, Black Cat, Bubbling Cauldron, Disturbed Burial, Desecrated Tomb, Reassembling Skeleton, Ghosts of the Damned, Haunted Crossroads,Gallows at Willow Hill, Bad Moon.

Can go to the gatherer and look for creature types like werewolf, zombie, scarecrow.

Or keywords like haunted, dead, grim, blood, etc.

MrKillStar - thanks for your suggestions. I do find though the Stratadon works very well, discarding it for +dmg - then grabbing it from the graveyard just to do it all over again :) Still considering Haunted Crossroads though.

Hello, MrKillStar! Thank you for the suggestions. I am going to work some of them into the deck. I had not originally planned on any recursion of my own creatures assuming I would use Coffin Queen to get victims. But adding Haunted Crossroads or Mortuary will add resilience to the deck and give me sac outlets when the queen cant find me any. And mana rocks never hurt, thank you!

Hmmmm... maybe try some stupid combo with Bolas's Citadel, sac Kokusho, the Evening Star with any free sac outlet, use Mortuary/Haunted Crossroads to get Kokushko back on top of library to recast it? Can also do that with Gray Merchant of Asphodel. But its just very junky combo :D
Also needs some ramp.. Bubbling Muck, Dark Ritual; Arcane Signet/Charcoal Diamond for black mana, Sol Ring/Mind Stone for some colorless. Everglades could be useable aswell. Jet Medallion - a bit pricey, but should help too.

I use Haunted Crossroads as a combo piece in my For the Void, but it uses "newer" cards so I guess it would be use just as creature recovery here, but its still insant speed, so it can still be decent again some meany graveyard hate cards. I would probably change it for either Howling Mine or Stratadon? HM just draws an additional card pretty much for everyone and Stratadon is 9 mana 5/5 trample, which seems kinda underwhelming even if you somehow cheat/reanimate.

Anyway! Making mono-color deck from oldschool sets only could be pretty interesting to see! :D

Really cool and unique deck! :3
Haunted Crossroads for very well for me, right next to Mortuary
Diabolic Intent - sac spell and good tutor.
Victimize - sac spell and double reanimator.
Insidious Dreams - discard stuff to reanimate later and find wincons!
Lake of the Dead - expensive, but can be very good burst ramp.
Carnival of Souls - might be very risky, but worth mentioning.
Ivory Tower - some very decent life gain for Necropotence and other fun stuff in black.
Restless Dreams - another creature recover spell and very cheap discard.
Songs of the Damned - Another burst ramp.

Tortured Existence for easy swap of big creatures to reanimate later for small creature to cast them again during early game.
Cards like Sadistic Sacrament, Bitter Ordeal, Nightmare Incursion, Praetor's Grasp are great for removing either important combo pieces of opponent's decks or just remove anything that could directly harm you and your plan. Peer into the Abyss could be fun aswell, also Temporal Extortion.
Fabled Passage - I dont really understand why would you use this in mono-color deck? Doesnt really seems like worth using just for another land for Urborg.
Beacon of Unrest - Really nice card to reanimate any creature or artifact.
Buried Alive, Reanimate and Entomb are just classic reanimator cards.
Blood for Bones, Victimize are also pretty decent reanimator cards.
Mortuary/Haunted Crossroads - kinda reanimator enchantments for Bolas's Citadel

For Syr Konrad, the Grim I run Tainted Strike as a sneaky finisher. All you need is a lot of creatures on board and someone just board-wiping them or I use Tortured Existence+Desecrated Tomb+Phyrexian Altar
Cavalier of Night - works both as good sac outlet and reanimator for creatures with cmc or less.
Clackbridge Troll could be worth using both as "food" for Massacre Wurm and force opponents to either sac or take damage from Troll during combat.
