A possible route to take this deck is take advantage of some life gain... running Ajani's Pridemate synergizes well with Healer's Hawk . I just happen to use him in an orzhov commander build but Aryel, Knight of Windgrace combos beautifully with Josu Vess, Lich Knight and can be a good mana sink, token destroyer or repetition destroyer.

Josu Vess, Lich Knight could be fun in a casual build. I would not play it otherwise.

With the mana this deck can start producing mid to late game you should think about including Josu Vess, Lich Knight . He's reasonable without the kicker but once kicked, just floods the board with evasive creatures.

Have you considered cards like Midnight Reaper or Josu Vess, Lich Knight ? If you change the deck a little you could fit in cards like Cabal Stronghold for lots of mana. You could also use cards like Treasure Map  Flip for fixing the top of the deck and mana fixing for green.

Have you tried Josu Vess, Lich Knight ? If so, how'd it work out for you?

If you are going to go tribal I would suggest that you pick one tribe, it will make your deck more consistent. Overall I would suggest going Knights, but if you want to go angels you could do that too.

You don't have to take all these suggestions, but I hope they give you something to think about. I know that I want extremely heavy on the knight theme, but that was because I like them and have built a deck.

If you want anymore ideas I would highly suggest taking a look at it.

I hope that I could be helpful!

Zombies might be the most supported tribe in magic... Check out this page for lots of options

Here are some that I like

The Scarab God, Varina, Lich Queen, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Sedris, the Traitor King, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Lim-Dul the Necromancer

Something I would recommend for sure is colors.

most useful > >> or >>> Least useful

is most important

is a great secondary

and seem roughly equal to me. Most the white support is more recent than the red support.

might have something worthwhile because golgari is a thing but this will probably be the most limited.

Haha, but this seems so right for Justin though! I wouldn't want to stop him, although we do need someone to maybe swing some more Geth, Lord of the Vault to put a hitch in Muldrotha's gettyup. & Josu Vess, Lich Knight For another high-cmc zombie-bomb
