Liliana's Elite Discussion

Have you considered a deck with the goal being to fill up your graveyard and use it to your advantage? Liliana's Elite springs to mind but I know it's a "bad card".

Unfortunately while Gravecrawler would be amazing for this deck, both it and Cryptbreaker and beyond the budget. Graf Harvest doubles up on the menace that Lord of the Accursed provides and the exile mechanic would be counter-productive to both the Liliana's Elite and the Diregraf Colossus.
Drown in Sorrow looks like a winner. The zombies should be larger than 2/2 and even if they are not it feeds the graveyard.

Thanks for the suggestions! I love Nighthowler, as he is essentially recursible aura which gives a downright ridiculous powerboost in a mid to lategame multiplayer match. I can easily see him being a finisher here. Definitely going in the deck.Ghoultree also seems very viable, as i imagine him being a 10/10 for G most of the game. Magister of Worth should already be in here somewhere, i think in the reanimation category. I can see the Ishkanah, Grafwidow + Spider Spawning combo working, but i feel like it's a little too situational? Do you think i'll be able to pull it off (more or less) consistently? Liliana's Elite could also be pretty strong, but compaired to Splinterfright it's really missing that trample. I'll think about it though. Don't know about Nemesis of Mortals. Four green mana is not easy to pull off consistently in a 3 colour deck, and again, it seems to be missing trample.Anyway thanks for the suggestions, do you have any ideas on what i should take out? :)

A few possibilities, mostly to add to your "Damage" category and perhaps cumulatively to make the deck more of a winner:

I made a similar deck too with black. I tried to use the least amount of non-creautre cards in it. Dryad Arbor is great if you mill yourself because it will count as a creature in the yard too. Grisly Salvage was awesome as well. With Splinterfright, Boneyard Wurm and Liliana's Elite it becomes a giant growth combat trick (my deck only had around 22 non creature cards).
Your mono green deck is pretty cool as well. If you ever want a new version, try to look into black or blue.
I do like your inclusion of Splendid Reclamation in the Deck. Great idea to use the lands that end up in your graveyard. But I would try to find a creature that does something similar. Maybe Life from the Loam could be interesting for its dredge ability. Ramunap Excavator could be good as well as it counts as a creature if it ends up in the yard.
For trample I had Brawn.
As my finisher I used Kessig Cagebreakers. If it could survive one turn the enemy was dead.I have a long list of cards in my maybeboard in my deck that you might want to check out.
In my playgroup we usually play multiplayer and don't bother with sideboards but Witchbane Orb was good for some graveyard hate, as it makes target player exiles his or her graveyard impossible. But unfortunately it is not a creature. Sylvok Replica and Ainok Survivalist deal with artifacts that hate on your yard that can be responded to. Well enjoy your deck, I had a blast playing with the Splinterfright idea, so I think you will too!

Love the deck! The Stir the Sands feels a little expensive; it's better to have a card you can play for full than a card you plan on cycling for a zombie and a card, after all. If you want to have a lower curve, you could replace them with Liliana's Elite. On the other hand, if you want a bomb that triggers a lot of ETB effects, you have Noosegraf Mob.

Deltis half of those cards I don't own and the ones I do own I either took out or left out because:
Liliana's Elite: if I retrieved creature cards all the time this guy would not be strong all the time and it was not worth it.
Noosegraf Mob: it is way too expensive at 6 mana. the ability is kinda cool but at 6 mana it turns me off when everything else is half that or less.
Strange Augmentation: there is no way in God-Pharaoh I can trigger Delirium so the +2/+2 wont happen.
Lunarch Mantle: I have no use for flying and I have better ways of sacking creatures for the same effects.
Bontu's Monument: it is being used in another deck right now and is better used there.

Most of those cards are easy to get or are give or take 25 cent. But other cards I would suggest from Shadows and Eldrich are.. Give No Ground, Lunarch Mantle, Strange Augmentation, Rise from the Grave, Noosegraf Mob, Liliana's Elite, Gavony Unhallowed, Campaign of Vengeance, Ghoulcaller's Accomplice, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Shamble Back, Gryff's Boon, Ethereal Guidance, Angelic Purge, and Corrupted Grafstone. Those should be enough to finish the deck. If you want other cards that could be of help for maybe a life drain rout, try Bontu's Monument. It will help all your black zombies cost less and whenever a creature enters in under your control opponents lose a life and you gain one. Again, all the cards I listed are either easy to get or cheap to buy in case you want them and don't have them. Cards from Kaladesh and Aether Revolt could help a little, but not as much as the ones I already listed. If you want more removal, Zendikar/Gatewatch has a decent bit in both white and black. If there is a specific way you wan the deck to play, I could help tweak it in that direction. As for the cards on the fence, see if you like anything listed more than those before deciding.
