Ghoulcaller Gisa Jalira, Master Polymorphist, as sac engines.Ob Nixilis, Unshackled hurts things.Flesh Carver (as fodder or a sac outlet).Liliana's Reaver (creates fodder + aggro),Infinite Reflection (turns your zombie tokens into big things),Army of the Damned good for infinite reflection and jalira.Domineering Will (tap, block and then sac).Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath for good card factor, and for the potential ultimate card advantage insanity.Crypt Ghast coz spells don't pay for themselves (unless you're Urza).Skirsdag High Priest, zombies having demon babies.Bad Moon for 3/3 zombies.Solemn Simulacrum because sad robot wants to die anyway.Myr Turbine hapless tokensMyr Battlesphere is just always awesome, plus tokens.Reef Worm die worm die!

Anyway, this is long enough. I think you have a sac deck here. On top of the stuff I've mentioned, you've got a bunch of card draw, which you'll need to replace your sac fodder, and some mass reanimate which will be good if used appropriately. seems like a deck concept to build around.

Thanks for stopping by ClutchWorks and goodair It's fun to see you're still 'enjoying' this deck!

goodair there already was somebody that told me to use Liliana's Reaver, I can't remember who, but I refused it than. Now because of the Sword of Vengeance you just told me, it would work great with it Liliana's Reaver. So I'll definitely add it to my side.

ClutchWorks is right about how far this deck has come along from the original list. Stick to two colors since Glissa, the Traitor was the main card you wanted to focus on. She is very mana heavy and splashing a third color will just hurt. I forgot to mention a interaction with death touch and trample. I believe you can assign one point of damage to the creature and the rest of it to the player which makes Sword of Vengeance a better fit that just first strike. You should double check incase there was a rule change though. This helps you close out games easier and still have the deathtouch/first strike theme you like. You should add Liliana's Reaver to your sideboard at least incase your up against someone with a lot of spells. This way they are forced to kill it right away or slowly discard cards as you swing in and make tokens.

Damnation & Graveborn Muse need to crawl out of your maybeboard & into your deck. In my experience, Graveborn Muse is stellar in any zombie deck. If the life loss gets too scary, sac her to Grimgrin.

As for Liliana's Reaver, I personally like him. A 4/3 deathtouch for 4CC is nothing to sniff at & if you can sneak him in for damage you get a bonus zombie that Grimgrin can eat for lunch.
