Creature — Zombie
Whenever Liliana's Reaver deals combat damage to a player, that player discards a card and you put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield tapped.

Liliana's Reaver Discussion
1 week ago
I have a few suggestions. Have you thought about Bounce Lands such as Dimir Aqueduct or Everglades and Coral Atoll. That way you could reuse your Vivid lands or gain extra life from Dismal Backwater or Jwar Isle Refuge. If money isn't too tight, you should think about adding Cavern of Souls to protect your zombies. I run it in my Rat EDH deck.
Since this is a heavy zombie theme you might want to think of running some tribal boosters such as Door of Destinies, Obelisk of Urd, Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Diregraf Captain, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner
Some other cards that are my top picks for zombie style decks are Army of the Damned, Curse of Shallow Graves, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Feeding Frenzy, From Under the Floorboards, Gempalm Polluter, Grimoire of the Dead, Lich Lord of Unx, Liliana's Reaver, Overseer of the Damned
I would also recommend having at least 8 mana producing cards outside of mana. The Dimir Cluestone and Keyrune are great mana accelerators.
I do love where you are going with this deck. Zombie tribal is one of the best out there next to Slivers and Vampires in my mind. Being Black and Blue you have so many options to go with it is hard to choose. I have been thinking of doing a Gisa and Geralf EDH deck myself, but I just cannot shy away from my project. I must complete my Rat EDH before I start building any other EDH decks. Good luck with your deck, and if you need any suggestions on what I would take out or other cards; let me know and I could try to help you.

I have to agree with Soldcastro. Liliana Vess and Liliana, the Last Hope would both be great additions. The first is a tutor as well as another Rise of the Dark Realms (as stated above) and the second has some more self-mill abilities and a zombie generator. Another suggestion is Liliana's Reaver. It's a zombie so you can cast it with Gisa and Geralf and it creates even more zombies. And I'm not sure if these are to slow or don't do enough but maybe consider Moan of the Unhallowed and Screeching Skaab

Also, Liliana of the Veil would be great with Nath, and if you can't stomach the price tag Liliana Vess and Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip will work just fine. Other good discard synergy would be Liliana's Caress, Cunning Lethemancer, Liliana's Reaver and Syphon Mind.

Maybeboard Brief Analysis Show
Inkfathom Witch: Fear; a great combat trick if i have a lot of my low power creatures out. To put into perpective if I have 3 creatures and the witch, its a 4 turn clock.
True-Name Nemesis: Protection from a named player; with bounce effects, this card can be a great beater. Dont know what I would take out for it though.
Skullsnatcher: Ninja with graveyard hate, something Im actually missing in this deck.
Liliana's Reaver causes discard and produces tokens, but i feel it doesnt fit in this deck.
Banshee of the Dread Choir has myriad and causes discarding, but once again, i feel its better in other decks.
Broodbirth Viper, however, is pretty good in my opinion. With myriad, it can draw me tons of cards per attack. The tokens also provide ninjutsu fodder if i want it. Dont know what i should replace for it though.
Phage the Untouchable is a game winner, bjt this may be too cruel in this deck. Maybe Ill use it as a sideboard card for more competitive matches.
Big Game Hunter, Nekrataal, Bone Shredder, and Shriekmaw all are very good ETB removal effects. Of these, I would add in Bone Shredder and Shriekmaw for their innate evasion. Though BGH can be cutch against Blightsteel and the like.
Duplicant should be an auto-include, but i never got around to getting him. What should i replace for him?
Sire of Stagnation can also draw me a crazy amount of cards if i can get it out early.
Scuttlemutt: Fantastic with intimidate and Vela.
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage: Value city
Liliana of the Dark Realms: Insane ramp, so much that i feel it needs to be in this deck xD.
Blade of Selves: insane with all of the ETB and Attacking effects in the deck.
Conjurer's Closet gives more value to ETB effects, and Erratic Portal allows for another Crystal Shard. Cloudstone Curio is a one-sided Equilibrium. Is the three I have enough, or should add more of these effects?
I think I need some pillow fort effects in the deck because of all the attacking the deck wants to do. Propaganda, Crawlspace, Dissipation Field, and No Mercy are all great candidates. How many should I run?
Dire Undercurrents: Just pure value. Need to find a spot.
Increasing Devotion or other tutors: Is it imperative I run more?
Sorry about the length xD
Of these, the most important are the pillow fort cards, Dire Undercurrents, Nether Traitor, Blade of Selves and Broodbirth Viper, Archetype of Imagination, Lord of the Void, Scuttlemutt, and Inkfathom Witch

Man, this deck is really hateful ;) Smallpox lol
I really like the build you have here;
Its got an excellent mana-ramp package. One thing I would suggest towards that would be the rituals, but they really don't seem necessary with all your mana doublers. I like the fact that you covered your ass against Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and other token hate with Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, and
Other than that, I really love the deck. I think it really captures the essence of mono-black. Good job!

There are cards that contribute to a discard plan and the zombie plan, stuff like Liliana's Reaver and Sibsig Icebreakers. They're Bolt fodder but they are threats that curve nicely into each other. With zombie lords they play quite nicely together. Stuff like Cemetery Reaper might be relevant.

I was aware of that, but thanks for telling me. Because of this, I can't combo the longbow with Liliana's Reaver's or Nightveil Specter's abilities, but it still works for Deathtouch and Sengir Vampire. Again though, thanks for telling me.
