Don't forget the Haunted Dead for the Prized Amalgam interaction. :)

I actually haven't been able to test the deck out quite yet since I currently can't afford to buy all the cards on MTGO (my MTG funds are going towards the upcoming Command Fest right now), so this is just a preliminary build that I want to try out when I am able.

Delve creatures were definitely on my radar initially, but they usually have trouble working well with cards like Haunted Dead and Prized Amalgam . After I'm able to try the deck out, I'll definitely reconsider whether I want the delve cards in the list.

For the getting rid of cards thing, you could add things like Haunted Dead or Miasmic Mummy . Things like Necromancer's Covenant are also really good in zombie decks. Also, Gravecrawler would be better than Dread Wanderer . Pretty good deck, though.

KaiyanK Hi, I've played mono-black a whole bunch. Zombies is an interesting tribe with some cool options.

Right now you are setup as a slow aggro deck- the traditional fix to that is to become a fast aggro deck. You can pack a decent disruption package and zombie making enchantments to become more midrange so long as you pack card advantage tools. The important part is looking over your options and picking cards that work well together. I have a big list of mono black stuff I've made work in modern. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox

Key options are;

Stitcher's Supplier +Graveyard shenanigans ( Haunted Dead etc)

Zombie Infestation +discard/graveyard shenanigans

Geralf's Messenger / Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Gurmag Angler best zombie in the format

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade powerful ramp w/ Lashwrithe

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed easy combo fuel, if you can reach six mana

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge & Bridge from Below powerful shenanigans.

Languish Budget damnation dodged by big creatures.

I'm testing a combo list Familiar Ground at the moment- its a hybrid umbral mantle izzet guildmage combo deck making use of Biomancer's Familiar as extra Training Grounds .

@SP3CTR3_chelts yeah I actually kind of missed playing him. I ran this sultai deck (with a red splash) when he was legal in standard. It was so much fun. It Prized Amalgam , Haunted Dead , and some graveyard enablers like Vessel of Nascency , Grapple with the Past , and Noose Constrictor .

It was pretty consistent at getting a Haunted Dead into the graveyard early, then pitching a Prized Amalgam or two to bring it back during my opponents upkeep, then in response to the ETB trigger on Haunted Dead sac it to Elder Deep-Fiend to tap all their lands down (triggering Sanctum of Ugin and Kozilek's Return when needed) leaving me with amalgams, a spirit, and elder deep-fiend and then repeating the process. Essentially time walking my opponent from turn 4 and on. I'll have to see if I can remember the deck list so I can show it to ya some time. It really was a blast to play.

My suggestion: add red for Faithless Looting and maybe Cathartic Reunion . You need more discard outlets and Haunted Dead is not nearly enough bang for your buck.

I see no scenario where Haunted Dead is better than another Hymn to Tourach , land (you have FIFTEEN), or Sinkhole .
