Hi, nice wombo combo:

Liliana, Untouched By Death + Rooftop Storm + Sidisi, Undead Vizier

activiting the Liliana's ulti and casting infinte Sidisi / Tutor with rooftop storm without paying mana costs.

I'm missing some nice zombies chiefs:

Death Baron, Lord of the Accursed, Risen Executioner, Zombie Master

Dictate of Kruphix isn't a good card draw, just use some better draw engine: Military Intelligence, Kindred Discovery

0megaShinryu on Lich Queen's Coup D'etat

@shadow63 while these two cards do work well in the deck I don't think I can include them. Thought Reflection's CMC is just too high to make it efficient in this deck since I don't have many ways to ramp in this deck. It also has 3 symbols in a majority deck. Graf Harvest has good value but its secondary ability is pretty bad so I chose to opt for Lord of the Accursed instead since all of his abilities are useful. Thank you for the suggestions though!

Well at this point most of the good ideas might be taken but from a more casual perspective here are some possible inclusions: Lord of the Accursed, Vengeful Dead, Binding Mummy, Forgotten Creation, Corpse Harvester, Noxious Ghoul. I especially like Noxious Ghoul with Endless Ranks of the Dead or Liliana, the Last Hope's emblem.

As for potential cuts I think your weakest cards are Tidehollow Sculler, Stitcher Geralf, Gisa and Geralf, and Reconnaissance. Each certainly has solid uses but without having played the deck or gone against it these seem to be the smallest effects. I hesitate to mention Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist for cuts because they win me games often but zombies have at least 3 similar effects in the tribe. Those effects being on a zombie vs not one a zombie is something to consider.

The list already looks awesome... Great job putting this together!

lagotripha Thank you for the feedback and the toolbox, much appreciated.

The reason why I have Aether Vial is so that I can put double the creatures down at times as well as leaving mana to activating abilities which can get mana intensive.

Would Thoughtseize be a version of Inquisition of Kozilek? or are most of the threats against me <3 CMC? Also, would you mainboard cards like this usually?

Phyrexian Arena looks like a really good option in the sideboard against control match ups, where Lord of the Accursed is not needed for it's menace, maybe I can take out the Aether Vial play set for it as it can always be good. For some reason I don't like losing life, that's the main reason I haven't bought some Thoughtseize haha, just need to get used to it and be confident that even paying some life I can win the race against other decks.

I agree that I might be playing too many lords (12) but they just add so much value, hard to cut down.

I am new to the Mordern format. I mostly play casual and a bit of standard so bare with me if I am talking crap.

Feltrix on Heroes get Remembered... But Zombies Never Die

I think in the deck you have, I'd stick with Never / Return over Hero's Downfall. It synergizes with both your zombies and your graveyard themes. Abrupt Decay is probably the strongest of your removal and Geth's Verdict is the weakest, but ideally I'd put in some Fatal Pushes. I'd drop a copy or two of Sign in Blood. It's really not a great source of card draw. Maybe 1x Grisly Salvage? It's nice, but not amazing in an aggressive deck. Also, I'd run Lord of the Accursed over Death Baron.

Thanks for the feedback! I've made a few chances since I posted it. Non-legal cards removed mostly.

  1. Wretched Camel isn't a must. More of a filler. My collection isn't great so I don't have much choice.

  2. I only have 1 Lord of the Accursed currently so i'll look into getting more.

  3. Lurching Rotbeast is again another filler unfortunately.

  4. The only person I play against at the moment is my girlfriend and she likes to use Waterknot which is why that was included. (I probably should have stuck it in the description).

  5. I'll look into getting more of them as well.

  6. Already removed due to legallity. I only included them to fill space.

Thanks for the feedback you've given me. I'm a new player so i've a lot to learn!

Would you mind telling me what a sideboard is please?

I have a few suggestions that may help improve your deck:

1) If you want to play Wretched Camel I would suggest running a few Deserts just so that the card has some value.

2) Lord of the Accursed is a great card for this deck, so I would recommend running all four copies so that there's a better chance of it turning up.

3) Lurching Rotbeast is not that great. Even though it has cycling, it's four mana for a 4/2. There are better zombies with more value out there.

4) Demystify is probably better as a sideboard card. (If you plan on playing competitively) It's not guaranteed that your opponent will be playing enchantments.

5) In Oketra's Name is another great card, but you should definitely run more copies so that there's a better chance it will be drawn.

6) Deathgaze Cockatrice and Typhoid Rats are a) not zombies and b) not standard legal so I don't recommend running them.

Hope this helps!

You should definitely consider Gravespawn Sovereign as it'll be easy to get to five zombies. Also you should consider to add in some lords like Lord of the Accursed and Lord of the Undead since they combined with the beefed up tokens on the battlefield have amazing synergy with Ghoulcaller Gisa.

I build the same strategy. If you'd like to take a look at my list for some inspiration, I will link it down below:
