Door of Destinies, Mesmeric Orb really good for self mill to feed you graveyard and really piss off your opponents. Pox, Small Pox, Syphon Flesh, Vengeful Pharaoh, Undead Gladiator, Raving Dead, Helldozer, Liliana's Reaver, Gravespawn Sovereign, Geth, Lord of the Vault there are lots of good zombies here are some and if you like check out my mono black for a few other zombies and such for poss. ideas. like the deck plus one mine if you don't mind.THE DAMNED INFECTED (ZOMBIE TRIBAL)

Death Baron is another great zombie lord, although rather pricey. I like Liliana's Reaver. Cryptbreaker can draw some cards. Black Market and Magus of the Coffers can be great ways to get mana in black. Grave Betrayal might be worth looking at. I'd also add a boardwipe or two.

Souly7765 thank you, i just did some modifications so a can put the 2x Anvil of Bogardan and take out Liliana's Reaver am still thinking about the Noetic Scales! if you got more suggestions i'm open to them!in multiplayer normally all the player go to control of the one who got more danger so if i start in silent nobody got too hard on me until is too late xD

Some suggestions i've thought of are:

CREATURES~~~~

Phyrexian Delver - It's a zombies that brings back other creatures from your graveyard. super helpful to get that party pumping.(not sure if it comes in foil or not)

Geralf's Masterpiece - Flying zombie that can be a good discard outlet and easy to recur.

Coffin Queen - The queen of resurrection, she's a zombie herself and can easily bring back anyones creatures.(not sure if it comes in foil or not)

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - This is the liliana you wanna play. When another creature dies you get a zombie and her planewalker abilities -X bring back a creature with cmc X and -8 you get an emblem where a creature dies it comes back to your battlefield

Liliana's Reaver - This guy is a must be blocked card, but what's that? deathtouch. Too block or not too block that's the deicision everyone around you will have to fear. If not they'll have to lose a card and you get a zombie buddy.

Diregraf Colossus - Cast a zombie? why not another zombie! This guy makes all your zombies come with a friend. and if you top deck with half your library in the bin he'll be big to boot.

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth - Anti selfmill. He's probably the best to include since emrakul is banned and ulamog is soso. Makes you shuffle your graveyard back into your library.

LANDS~~~~~So we'll go for the easy ones: Drowned Catacomb, Woodland Cemetery and Hinterland Harbor. You can also have Sunken Hollow which has swamp/island subtype so it's fetchable and relatively easy to enter untapped. Unfortunately you can't get the U/G or G/B version because they don't exist (yet). There's also Choked Estuary for a dual land to easily enter untapped.

CARD SELECTION~~~~~~

Top cards i could find for card selection are Tracker's Instincts and Forbidden Alchemy, these are good because you can flashback them if you need. Some other good ones I found are Grapple with the Past and Grisly Salvage which are instants and Mulch which is sorcery.

CUTS~~~~~~~~~

Top cuts i can see of my own opinion, you can disagree if you want.

1.Perpetual Timepiece or Elixir of Immortality - Elixir is probably the better thing to cut. IF YOU CUT YOU CAN ADD EITHER KOZILEK OR Laboratory Maniac.

2.Deathrite Shaman - Just doesn't seem too great to me in commander. Also not a zombie

3.Yavimaya Elder - not a zombie.

4.Army of the Damned - too costly.

5.Magus of the Will - He seems very costly, 3 mana to exile himself and then you gotta pay more mana to cast more things. If you're getting a lot of mana you can do some cool things.

6.Stitcher Geralf - relies a lot on the opponents having strong creatures and actually hitting them reliably. (Not a foil)

7.Undead Warchief - this dude is a 4cmc 1/1. his abilities are nice but damn is he weak as soggy bread.

As with most discard decks you run into problems when everyone else is empty handed. You could include some "Everybody draws" effects like Temple Bell or Howling Mine. Maybe you even have access to Anvil of Bogardan. Or you could put in 4 Shrieking Affliction.

Don't you have problems surviving in Multiplayer? I would expect you to be the prime target. Noetic Scales may help there.

Also I would consider cutting Liliana's Reaver its mana expensive and not that good.

Yeah I know exactly what you mean, like it's off but I can't tell exactly what's off.

I think they're just a little too all over the place, like you said they have unifying theme.

I added Liliana's Reaver, I think it's a good fit. He's about as Grixis as you can get without have red, blue, and black in the cost. Lol
