Blanket of Night will only make the lands into "Swamp", it won't make the land "Basic", so Cabal Stronghold will only count "Basic Swamp" Swamp anyway. Doesn't work. It would help something like Lashwrithe that just looks for "Swamp".
I do have quite a few Swamp in the deck, what I've found is the (CMC4) is a high price to pay. Early on it doesn't help, and then your committed to spending 4 mana to get , which means you have to have at least 4 other "Basic Swamp". Plus it eats $1.00 / $50.00 = 2% of the budget, not worth the benefit. PS: Cabal Coffers only looks for "Swamp" as well.

Hmm, I see that you've decided to get the most out of Gisa's ability by using the highest power-to-cost creatures to sacrifice. Unfortunately, Gisa is quite fragile and if the opponent kills her just once she ends up at seven mana. Here we run into the problem where all your sacrifice targets are not good on their own (they usually come with a drawback of some sort) and your commander is out of action. This usually leads to you trying to crawl back into action for the rest of the game until you lose/ draw into your infinite combo.
Based on that I'd rather have a solid base of goodstuff 5-6 mana creatures that have power 5 or greater. This way even if Gisa is out of commission I can still have a threatening board. If you want massive Gisa activations you can always add some equipment like Lashwrithe or Nightmare Lash. I still think you should include targeted removal so that you can bluff responses. At the very least some combination of Doom Blade, Murder, Go for the Throat and Hero's Downfall.

thanks WhichKing for your feedback! i have noticed that the Stoneforge Masterwork is very conditional.. i like the Lashwrithe idea.. also, Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn will be cut first. wasn't sure how much ramp i need.

Since this is your first EDH deck you may want to see this deckbuilding framework called the 8x8 model.
So far your deck has a decent CMC curve and has a balanced number of redundant effects, a lot better than the first deck I ever made :P
Herald's Horn and Urza's Incubator seem unnecessary as your zombies consist mostly of weenies. Stoneforge Masterwork is only good if you already have a lot of zombies out, which sort of defeats the purpose of having it in the first place. (maybe replace with Batterskull or Lashwrithe?) I think it may be a good idea to replace them with more draw like Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones and Erebos, God of the Dead.

So budget magic time. This is how I play most of the time. So basically with this kind of deck you really want as mana black mana symbols as possible. I would recommend taking out Lashwrithe and putting in 2 more Underworld Connections. The artifact is cool and does play off swamps, but the ability to filter through your deck will often be more useful as the main win condition is Gray Merchant. Also with the life gain in the deck the cost of one life per card is all but negated. I my self am working on Mono black for modern. Like what ya got going on so far. +1. As I see more budget stuff that might work for ya i will check back in

Thanks for the suggestions Wintermoon. Many of those are cards I'm planning on adding when I find them. I'm not quite as sold on equipment that pumps only (e.g. Lashwrithe ) as I would rather have those slots for cards that grant evasion and haste instead.
