Lifebane Zombie Discussion

Lifebane Zombie and Augur of Skulls both feel like they are very low-impact, with the zombie being very limited in what it can hit, and the augur only being a single-use discard effect only hitting one opponent. Obviously the augur is better in a 1v1 situation, but having it in multiplayer just feels bad. I would recommend Syphon Mind, but it suffers from the opposite problem of being great in multiplayer but bad in 1v1. I believe that the specters and specter-like cards are plenty of discard.
You've got a pretty good amount of strong etb-abilities, so Deadeye Navigator would be a great inclusion. Another great and fun card in decks packing a lot of removal is Grave Betrayal to let you steal the things you kill.

Underworld Connections (one of my favorites) , Desecration Demon and Lifebane Zombie all killer cards! Whip of Erebos stayed on my main once I played it a couple times. Love a devotion deck. I've won so many times with gary! Hit me hard!

I think it all depends on where and how you want to play this deck. I can provide a few examples though.

Gempalm Polluter is a necessity for any Zombie deck. The cycling is really good.
Liliana's Reaver is a good midrange card.
Lifebane Zombie is a great sideboard option vs green and white. With all the recursion in your deck, chances are you'll be exile a whole lot of cards.
Undead Warchief is amazing, and only four dollars.
Cemetery Reaper is a zombie lord.
Call to the Grave is great in that it causes all other players to sacrifice a creature on their turns, while leaving you virtually unharmed. The only problem is that your commander will be sacrificed too, but compared to the advantage, I'd say it's worth.

Okay, first of all, I would cut Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher and Forgotten Creation, they're simply not worth the mana cost. Always try to keep your curve low! Instead you should add Geralf's Messenger, it's a tad more expensive($), but it's a really good card, probably the best zombie card out there. Other zombies you should consider to add:
Plague Belcher - target your Gravecrawler turn 4 after combat and you've got a 5/4 with menace in combination with your opponent loosing 1 lige, plus you can cast Gravecrawler again. Potential trigger for both Diregraf Colossus and Prized Amalgam. Having Plague Belcher + Diregraf Captain in play at the same time strongly disencourages the opponent sweeping the board, since he/she will loose a lot of life.
Diregraf Ghoul - 2/2 for 1 mana, it's an okay card.
Cryptbreaker - Bit more expensive, but it can discard a Prized Amalgam, giveng you a nice 2/2 blocker, and gives you card advantage.
Relentless Dead - Also a bit more expensive, but this card is pure win, attack with it and if it dies you can return it to your hand and return a 1 cmc zombie to the battlefield, triggering Prized Amalgam.
Somewhat interesting zombies:
Lifebane Zombie - Sideboard
Zombie Outlander - Sideboard
Dark Salvation - You can pay X=0, giving you a 1 mana kill spell if you have enough zombies. If you have a lot of mana that you can't use otherwise you get a couple of tokens. A solid card.
Personally I'd consider cutting Unbreathing Horde, Butcher Ghoul, Cemetery Reaper (you want to keep your GY), Dimir Aqueduct, Bone Splinters, Ghoulcaller's Chant, Necromancer's Stockpile and maybe Rotting Rats in favor of the above.
Fatal Push - Great removal.

Relentless Dead is too slow on too small of a body in modern. I could see keeping 1, but personally I would rather run 2x Bile Blight and 1 Tasigur, the Golden Fang/Gurmag Angler/Bontu the Glorified/Erebos, God of the Dead/Kolaghan's Command instead.
Profane Command is a waste of sideboard space. I really don't think Tragic Slip warrants additional space either. If it's within your budget I would suggest 1x Sword of Fire and Ice or 1x Sword of Light and Shadow.
Crumble to Dust, Blood Moon, Fulminator Mage, Deathmark, Demon's Horn, Lifebane Zombie, Damnation, Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Arena, Pithing Needle, Boil, Flashfires, Terminate/Dreadbore (in place of Go for the Throat) are all viable options as well.

UBQRLQL Seize the Soul, Lifebane Zombie, Nightveil Specter are all the options of a desperate man. The fact that we're even considering these cards for Merfolk goes to show how close the matchups can be. Although, I will say that double Desecration Demon is very very good.
