MJS154, both are good suggestions. I'll have to check as to whether I have any Mortuary Mire s. I'm thinking I don't at present. Infectious Horror I have several of. It's a little like a larger Pulse Tracker . I'm trying to keep this one mostly aggro, so I do have to be careful of slow lands and expensive creatures. both are worth thinking about. Thanks.

Take out Infectious Horror it’s a terrible card. Maybe add Ravenous Chupacabra instead

Thanks for commenting! TMBRLZ, Open the Graves would change the playstyle of the deck a bit, but it's a great card! If I find that my current approach isn't cutting it, a more midrange deck with several copies could be good! I definitely see the appeal of Skeleton Archer, and have added 3 copies to the sideboard. Infectious Horror isn't bad, but if I can play Josu Vess, Lich Knight for the same cmc, I'd rather run him.

Bxbx, thanks for the further input, it's much appreciated. I will attempt to get my hands on a few Lilianas, but until then, I definitely see your points on the other cards. Necrotic Wound has been replaced with more reliable kill spells. Tattered Mummy has been replaced with Graveyard Marshal. I removed Barrier of Bones to add a few more copies of some key cards. Would you instead recommend running a few copies of Stitcher's Supplier, or are the 4 Diregraf Ghouls sufficient as one drops?

Solid deck. I was looking for some stronger suggestions but you have seemed to cover everything pretty well, while respecting a low curve. I was looking heavily at Infectious Horror and Open the Graves but those obviously disrupt the low avg cmc you're trying to maintain.

One card that would be really nice with Death Baron though is Skeleton Archer. He is a 4 drop, so a little heavy, but with a Baron in play, since Archer is the one dealing damage, deathtouch would be considered, so you can nuke any targetable creatures on the field and resolve a 3/3 (4/4) creature.

Think it would be a solid 2x or 3x in your deck. Excellent work otherwise.

Ok so I'm going to say a lot of things so bear with me. If you are trying to play at a local game store, then you will need to make a lot of changes.

The card I would cut out are Arvad the Cursed Infectious Horror Paladin of the Bloodstained Serra's Guardian Lich's Caress Gruesome Fate Macabre Waltz Luminous Bonds Open the Graves

Card I Would Put in are (assuming you are willing to pay for them) Resplendent Angel Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants Lyra Dawnbringer Shield Mare Nightmare's Thirst Sovereign's Bite Seal Away Legion's Landing  Flip Vraska's Contempt Oathsworn Vampire Famished Paladin Moment of Craving Fountain of Renewal

The basic plan of what you want to do is play low cost creatures with a few high cost creatures that benefit from gaining a lot of life gain triggers. Since there is black you can add some removal to help slow the game down to your pace. Just make sure your deck fits this idea as close as it can and you will see the synergies work together. But make sure you are playing with good cards and not just anything that says gain life.

No problem, I love some good old zombie action!

Anyhow, I'd be more inclined to phase out the Geralf's Messenger for the Lord's as that buff and recastable Menace is truly a beast. Another card that does the job of Geralf's Messenger is Infectious Horror, but its all your preference!

TheWallinator74, the reason i've removed my Blood Tyrant from the box was exactly what you typed. He was growing too much on each game that i had him on the field and it started to get boring to my opponents. I'll take a look at Pulse Tracker and Infectious Horror.

I'll take a look on the "sweepers" as well but i'll replace Exsanguinate for Blood Tithe. I would love to put the God-Pharaoh in place of the Deciever but he's really expensive in my country at the moment so for now the Deciever shall be the walker card of this deck.

Lastly, this deck didn't have any mana problems in the matches i've played so i see no need to put other lands on it for now. Thanks a lot for the suggestions.
