Don't think I've seen Havengul Lich , that's wicked! Love it. Is Keiga, the Tide Star to high on the curve? Both that and Hostage Taker are excellent if you can recur them.

Field of the Dead is a great land. Ghoulcaller Gisa is a great card to invest in, especially with graveyard recursion cards like Havengul Lich in your deck. Buried Alive is a great budget card for your deck.

If you want more draw, there are a couple of options. But some can get you killed. Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Phyrexian Arena , and Graveborn Muse all draw lots of cards. There's also Windfall , Kindred Discovery , Rhystic Study , and Mystic Remora for more draw.

I dig the idea!

What's the thought behind so many land?

What sort of effects are you looking for with the Enter The Battlefield effects? something like Terastodon or Hydroid Krasis fit?

If you are after recursion by playing from graveyard, I would recommend adding more reanimate outlets. Maybe Havengul Lich or something like it?

You might consider giving these cards a try: Isochron Scepter , Necrotic Ooze , Havengul Lich , Cephalid Illusionist (you can mill your whole library with this and Lightning Greaves)

Thank you for your feedback LadyZ! I was definitely looking for cards to remove and you've given me some good direction.

I added Lich Lord of Unx and Field of the Dead

I have Havengul Lich on the way along with most of the acquire list I have.

I would cut your enchantments and the Ghoulcaller's Chant s. In my experience, cards that synergize with zombies but aren't zombies themselves aren't as good as just playing more zombies. Havengul Lich should go as well since its cmc is too high, and there are better removal spells than Celestial Flare . Your deck is also missing Tidehollow Sculler .

All in all, I suggest these changes:

-4 enchantments; +4 Tidehollow Sculler

-2 Havengul Lich ; +2 Diregraf Captain or Diregraf Colossus (both are very good with the Carrion Feeder + Gravecrawler loop)

-3 Ghoulcaller's Chant , -1 Celestial Flare ; +4 Cryptbreaker

-2 Celestial Flare ; +2 Path to Exile or some other removal spell that isn't as bad as Celestial Flare
