if you wanted to go more reanimation then, Angel of Despair, Angel of Serenity and maybe Angel of Sanctions, should be the main core of the deck, with spells like Unburial Rites, Collective Brutality and maybe mid rangey cards like The Eldest Reborn, Elspeth Conquers Death, Liliana, Death's Majesty

I love the deck!
I've really wanted to mess around with Tombstone Stairwell, but I have yet to get my hands on a copy.
I'm curious how Alhammarret's Archive and Bone Miser have worked for you. I tried the Archive for a bit, but found myself wishing I just had another zombie to slam more often than not, but admittedly I cut it pretty early in testing. Miser is something I've considered adding because it synergizes so well with Varina, but I'm skeptical that it's impactful enough at 5 mana.
I feel like Sorin could easily be swapped out for Liliana, Death's Majesty. It reanimates anything for -3 and it's +1 advances your Living Death/Zombie Apocalypse shenanigans while netting a zombie. For 1 extra that seems a little more on the nose.
My build tosses in The Scarab God as well because it's just bonkers if you go wide and nobody has a board wipe on hand. It can single handedly take over games and can get you back on board after the aforementioned board wipe.

I was looking for a deck that had Pod in it, looked at the points spread I would want and found this gem with the exact points spread that I wanted.
I have made some changes, visible in RecSurPod, chiefly removing the one-mana discards, adding an important new addition in Fiend Artisan which is yet another pod effect and another very good creature in Soulherder.
I am throughly confused by the inclusion of Chainweb Aracnir. What role does it serve? a more useful creature like Scavenging Ooze or additional searcher like Recruiter of the Guard would be more useful. Current changes I have made:
- Removed Paradise Druid (a bit too much ramp), Brazen Borrower (does not work well with pod effects), Nimble Obstructionist (does not work well with pod effects), Duress, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek (the discard suite feels very hit-or-miss)
- Added Fiend Artisan (yet-another-pod-effect), Elder Gargaroth (this is basically a titan at 5 mana), Tortured Existence (both pet card, but also works with the main plan of recursion), Liliana, Death's Majesty (fits the recursion theme very well), Phyrexian Metamorph (I wanted access to an extra clone effect) and Soulherder (one of the best three drops for this deck).

Eldrazi Monument looks busted as hell I love it! I actually have Liliana, Death's Majesty and Midnight Reaper coming in the mail for this deck. I might consider Smokestack and Contamination, but this deck can be rather slow at times since it's definitely a snowball effect. I'm a little worried it would take longer to become an actual threat. I've been on the fence about God-Eternal Bontu all week. I like her a lot and she's a Zombie so she will get buffed by all the lords, but again the sacrificing permanents is what worries me. If there's a way I can pump out Zombies even faster I think this are all a must in.

Liliana, Death's Majesty can be a game winner as well, if you can protect her a couple turns, the one-sided wrath is great.

dbsharkeyjacoby: The reason for the zombie lords isn't for the zombie tribal theme, but the buff they offer. Death Baron gives us the ability for our zombies to have Deathtouch, so unless we're getting swung with flyers, our opponents will think twice about swinging towards us. Lord of the Undead gives us the ability to recur a vast majority of our creatures, which are zombies. Undead Warchief reduces the cost of our zombies. Out of the 20 creatures in the deck, 50% of them are zombies.
Due to these effects, you'll see why I'm not running Lord of the Accursed, all it does is give our zombie duders menace, which would require us to need to swing more. If our game gets to that point where we need to turn sideways, I'd rather use Liliana, Defiant Necromancer and/or Geth, Lord of the Vault to steal creatures, and any of our other beefy boys and swing with.
Cryptbreaker was in the deck originally, but was cut due to not having enough utility. You need to tap three zombies to draw a card? Okay, that's three creatures less we have to defend with, and defend our Lili's with. The discard outlet is fine, but unless Ensnaring Bridge is out, we don't wanna be dumping cards from OUR hand, we wanna be dumping cards from either everyones hand or our opponents hand.
Ruthless Sniper costs mana for it's give -1/-1, not really ideal. Bone Miser is a fine card, but it's very costly. Archfiend of Ifnir is a good card, and I'll consider it, if I find myself in games coming across a common dead card in hand, to swap it out with.
As for the Lili's, Liliana, Dreadhorde General has been considered, however her cmc is way higher and will destabilize the curve more, as well as she runs more in Zombie Tribal. The only value I feel I'd get out of her is killing my creatures to draw a card, which may work, but I fear it'll be way too situational. Liliana, Death's Majesty runs best in a more zombie tribal theme.
The biggest thing to keep in mind with some of these higher cost suggestions is that we are running mono-black. We don't have access to ramp outside artifact ramp, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
