  1. Staples:
  2. Maybe:
    • Protection:
      • Sylvan Safekeeper : Creature protection.
      • Veil of Summer : Counterspell protection. Protection against blue and black removal. Most common cards with removal (although meta dependent).
  3. Cut:

Staple cards are cards I recommend obtaining and using, since they are almost always good cards to have in any green deck. The rest is up to preference and should be taken with a grain of salt. I hope I could be of some use to you.

Nice, I like it! I'm also building a Sidisi zombie tribal deck (though in a much lower price category, more grindy and I haven't done much playing with it).

First, any deck of mine that has Golgari in it and cares about the graveyard is running Grisly Salvage. Is it ground breaking? Not even close. Does it win you games? Not really. Does it ever disappoint you? Definitely not. I know people aren't too high on card selection cards, but between selecting from five cards, being instant, hitting both lands and creatures, and effectively milling yourself, I find the good old Salvage very reliable. Then again, blue gets this effect in great variety, so maybe I'm just biased.

Next, I do think that you should consider Rooftop Storm. It is very high CMC, so it doesn't slot in automatically but if you can drop it relatively early, it pays for itself in the long run. It also combos very nicely with Liliana, Untouched By Death, which is a possible addition too. I also run an alternative win con (except my sac outlet is Carrion Feeder) and these two play a part in it. (I admit, it is a bit clunky, but I also play three different Lab Man effects - and Mortal Combat, that's even clunkier - so I think I can afford it.)

Furthermore, if you ever feel like you need more zombies, I have these few cheap ones to recommend: Undead Augur is a great card card draw zombie, but very black intensive. If that is too much, Midnight Reaper achieves a similar effect, though he sadly does not trigger from tokens. Stitcher's Supplier is an amazing self-mill one drop zombie, while Shambling Shell is a zombie with dredge that you can easily put into graveyard once in play, so what's not to love. If you have any kind of zombie anthem effect, Unbreathing Horde is an immortal blocker if you need that - arguably that's not very often, but the option is there. And if not for that, it can still become a very big zombie for Altar of Dementia. I already mentioned Carrion Feeder, so that's about it from the top of my head I think.

Lastly, as Kholan95 before me mentioned, you want some back up plan in a self mill deck. You said you don't want to run Lab Man effects, so in that case maybe you should consider graveyard shufflers? Loaming Shaman is probably the classical option, but I do have a soft spot for Wand of Vertebrae. It's nothing amazing, but it can drop very early and repeatably mill you (though not as well as Embalmer's Tools would in this deck obviously), which is great for a deck like Sidisi, and in a pinch, you can shuffle at least five cards into your deck, which should save you from decking and give you those few more turns to try and finish the game.

Thanks guys for the upvotes!

@dogBITE17 - yeah, that card is niche.. However, i think I'd rather have a removal on a creature than an instant/sorcery that is efficient to kill commanders most of the time..

@fruittart88 - I thought about that card before, but I usually end up having that card in my hand, not being able to respond to graveyard hate spells from my opponents. The only time I have been able to use that in response to something is when Loaming Shaman is in my graveyard and I have Tortured Existence in my battlefield, and I discard a creature to place the Loaming Shaman to my field, which is very uncommon to happen.. But thanks for the suggestion!

@rasiti - ahh! I see what you mean.. Plus it's cheaper too.. Thanks!

@gaglink - I think Grisly Salvage and Grapple with the Past is better, since they are instants.. But I could add that should I need another similar effect to the other two spells.. Thanks!

Loaming Shaman is a creature that can save some of your cards on the graveyard.

You're right. What about Elvish Soultiller + Loaming Shaman instead? Obviously Ulamog is better, but I like the idea that cheaper alternatives exist.

If you hit Karmic Guide before Loaming Shaman, you'd only be able to do one loop, whereas Ulamog is a single card that does it 100% of the time.

Honestly you're totally right about that. I've noticed that when I play this deck I usually have to mulligan an embarrassing amount of times to get a hand with land drops and ramp in it. My original idea when I built this was that I could get away with having less lands because I had way more ramp than my other decks, but in practice it's hardly enough to offset that. Probably gonna take out Loaming Shaman and Eternal Witness because recursion is just never really that important in this deck, and replace them with another land and ramp spell. Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

I know budget isn't the focus of deck but do you think Ulamog's shuffle effect could be replaced with Loaming Shaman and Karmic Guide? I mean... Karmic Guide dying returns Loaming Shaman to the battlefield, and Loaming Shaman entering returns all cards wanted in library, and so loop can continue.
