Josu Vess, Lich Knight Discussion

Which card do you think will work for up to 4 free slots? Or maybe drop something else to change more? I'm thinking about these cards right now: ------2x Desecrated Tomb --> maybe good with Liliana, so two of each would be an idea ------2-4x Stitcher's Supplier --> really not sure about this card... maybe 2 for the early game and Gruesome Menagerie ------2x Liliana, Untouched By Death --> good card for zombies ------2x Josu Vess, Lich Knight --> great card with 3-4x Cabal Stronghold

TrashWolf95 Thank you for your comment and suggestions. 1. I got 4 Cabal Stronghold , which I will include soon. Maybe more Josu Vess would work too... 2. Moment of Craving will leave the deck, but I'm not sure, if I want other removals like Walk the Plank or maybe 2 strong creatures like Josu Vess, Lich Knight
My main issue with most suggestions is, that the card are M19 or older and will leave standard in some months. I don't feel like buying planeswalker for example, if I can't use them for some time. Otherwise Desecrated Tomb, Stitcher's Supplier and Liliana, Untouched By Death are great cards.
Lets hope for some zombie cards in january...

Training Grounds is super good with this commander. Necromancer's Stockpile offers some good cycling power. Gisa and Geralf offer some good utility. Grave Defiler is good draw power. Herald's Horn card draw + cost reduction. Obelisk of Urd offers a large board buff.
You clearly don't care about discarding cards as much as most of your opponents do so maybe a Rotting Rats.

I haven't done a lot of research on zombies, but I learned from my old token deck that it takes a lot of trial and error to get the balance between token producers, pump spells, and abusers.
I think you haven't taken as much advantage of the colors you have. Green has a lot of cards that syngerize with tokens and white has the best removal and board wipes
I haven't looked at prices with these suggestions. Also, you don't have to listen to me at all
Josu Vess, Lich Knight - With green to help you ramp, this deck has a better chance of kicking him than other zombie decks. Open the Graves - More Tokens. Underrealm Lich - Card draw is always good. Varina, Lich Queen - Card draw, more tokens, and some lifegain to help keep you healthy for those life costs. Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, etc - I always feel like land ramp is more reliable than artifact ramp, especially in green, but this is just preference. You do seem to be lacking a bunch of ramp to keep those activated abilities from slowing you down. Death Baron - Another lord, but gives deathtouch too Carrion Feeder - Free sac outlet, if you are looking for one.
Pontiff of Blight - If you have solid ramp, giving all your creatures extort can get really dumb. Graveborn Muse - Might kill, but you will draw your entire deck with the right board state. Risen Executioner - Another lord with recursion Corpse Harvester - Tutor a zombie and a land. Noxious Ghoul - Could be spicy 1 sided board wipe Phyrexian Crusader - Possible 1 shot, but only if you have the right amount of pump. Shepherd of Rot - Could kill everyone. Good way to get around pillow fort and fogs. Raving Dead - Fun spice. Balthor the Defiled - Pretty good recursion. Right now Archetype of Imagination is the only non black creature. Dralnu, Lich Lord - You don't have that many instants and sorceries, but what you do have is strong. I think it reduces Army of the Damned's Flashback. Boneknitter - Tribal protection. Anguished Unmaking, Swords to Plowshares, Counterspell etc - some single target removal is always useful, and you are in amazing colors for it. I have this problem with my dragon deck. Second Harvest, Parallel Evolution - One time token doublers Craterhoof Behemoth, Overrun, Triumph of the Hordes - Ends games. Bramble Sovereign - Not a zombie, but this can do WORK. City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Reflecting Pool - 4 colors needs as much color fixing as possible. Esper Panorama - OK fetchland Krosan Verge - Underestimated fetch imo Fecundity - Crazy card draw Austere Command Merciless Eviction Cleansing Nova - A few more wipes. But these let you interact with artifacts and enchantments that this deck does not seem to do well.
Stronghold Assassin - effects like Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, and even Attrition are just better. Archetype of Imagination - I appreciate that you are trying to deal with a weakness in the deck while giving your creatures evasion. But, aren't zombie's looking to die for LTB effects? It also costs a lot. Grave Betrayal - Costs a bit too much for me, but a strong effect. I'm up in the air about this. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Might be rough to cast in 4 colors Conspiracy - I might be missing something, but almost all of your creatures are zombies already. Skullbriar, the Walking Grave - Just seems like a beat stick that is hard to pump up. Vulturous Zombie - easier to pump up, but still feels like just another beat stick.

If you're going to go Zombies, you need more zombies. This style of play is better suited for Aggro/Midrange play, not Control. Doomed Dissenter can net you two tokens with Open the Graves. Tattered Mummy, Graveyard Marshal, Midnight Reaper and Josu Vess, Lich Knight to name a few other zombie in Standard. Whisper, Blood Liturgist is fine to keep in for his reanimation ability. Severed Strands give you lifegain, but it's minimal at best. I'd go with Vicious Offering since it can handle indestructible creatures. Fungal Infection is a card that I started using and it has been very useful for me. Duress is a better option than Dark Inquiry, is has a much lower CMC and can take care of board wipe cards or counterspells. I'd also looking into a Detection Tower for hexproof creatures so you can target them.

If this is a zombie tribal deck with a knight sub-theme may I suggest the somewhat new Josu Vess, Lich Knight ?

With Black Market in play I sacrifice several Zombies to Ashnod's Altar then use that colorless mana and three black mana to cast Josu Vess, Lich Knight with kicker followed by a Zombie Apocalypse using the mana from Black Market to return the Zombies earlier sacrificed to the Altar etc...every time I manage to pull this combo off I win :D

I guess you can push your graveyard plan by adding Stitcher's Supplier instead of Vicious Conquistador, also with this you can put your 2 Divest/Duress in sideboard and add 2 more The Eldest Reborn whitch give you more value, if you are not playing against mono red.
Also i personally dont like this artifact plan, but it seems legit. I d rather play more Vraska's Contempt main deck than Settle the Score cause if Teferi ever touches the board with this deck you are certanly dead.
