Haunted Dead Discussion

So check it out: I've been playing a version of this at FNM but splashes white for Refurbish. Why? For Combustible Gearhulk and Noxious Gearhulk reanimator! Combustible totally refills your hand and it's absolutely bonkers. Like you can turn three deepfiend off Haunted Dead and then turn four reanimate combustible. It's ridiculous.
Four color seems tough but it really isn't. I just jam the mainboard with fast lands and Aether Hub. Getting four colors (and topping out at 4 cmc) really isn't that tough.
Also splashing white lets the deck run one Nahiri, the Harbinger. She's so good here. She ends up being the perfect lightning rod that soaks up attention and frankly a lot of damage. The deck completely spins out of control for the opponent. My FNM record is decent. Personal playtest record is much better (but not as well documented).
Any way. Thanks for posting this. Glad to see more grixis emerge lists! I think they are REALLY strong in the current meta. +1. Please take a look at my 4c variant if you'd like!

Sinister Concoction helps a lot if my opponent plays Shock against my early game discard outlets. In that case I use it to put Haunted Dead into the graveyard and retain an additional outlet. Collective Brutality does an even better job, but is quite expensive too.

Haunted Dead is great because you can discard/mill it, and then reanimate it easily. The best possible draw spell for you would probably either be Take Inventory or Epiphany at the Drownyard. Also, Drownyard Temple can reanimate itself, and Shadow of the Grave is also interesting. Finally, Plague Belcher is a great Zombie.

Shadow12721 keep in mind the deck is budget deck so i will not be adding Cryptbreaker or Relentless Dead. if i stay as only 2 colors i think Glimmer of Genius is better because it also let you scry 2 (so u don't draw 2 lands).
i really don't like Haunted Dead it seems so slow and weak.
i think i might consider go white as well, I'm still open to suggestions tho.

First of all, I highly recommend making this deck Esper colors (). With the addition of Amonkhet there are some crazy new zombie cards such as Wayward Servant and Time to Reflect. Now, I would highly suggest Compelling Deterrence for removal. You could also swap the Glimmer of Genius for a better draw spell such as Painful Truths or Altar's Reap. Drop the Mindwrack Demons for Cryptbreakers and Thraben Foulbloods for Haunted Dead or Relentless Dead if you can afford them.

Moby_Copperfield Thanks for the suggestions, Reckless Scholar definitely deserves a spot, he's a bit more expensive to play, but after testing Seeker of Insight, it didn't really function like I wanted to, triggering only once in a while. Haunted Dead and Stitchwing Skaab are neat, what to remove though? I think Shadowstorm Vizier can be removed since the buff she gets is minimal at best, would be a shame though that card inspired me to build this deck in the first place.

I'm attempting to build a deck around discard as well.
