Lord of the Undead Discussion
1 day ago
I would cut Festering Goblin, it is just really bad and instead make use of another zombie lord Death Baron being the best but stupidly expensive and then Metallic Mimic, Cemetery Reaper, Risen Executioner, Lord of the Undead, and Undead Warchief all also being options. I would also look into Vengeful Pharaoh for some incidental removal.
As for sideboard it is first necessary to evaluate the decks you face before making the sideboard.

I am guessing this build maybe started from the intro pack (Just guessing), which actually made me love zombies :)
First of you can look at my Zombie deck for inspiration, sometimes it helps to see others builds.
I don't know if you are on a budget or you are going another route for your build, so feel free to say no to any of my suggestions.
First of i would probaly cut Oath of Liliana since you dont run any planeswalkers and i dont see it fit so well in.
You could run Tragic Slip.
When you are running zombie tribal like this you want lords to support them: Cemetery Reaper, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead. The more budget version is: Lord of the Accursed or if you feel like splashing blue in then Diregraf Captain.
Gray Merchant of Asphodel works wonders in mono black decks and it has the zombie tag.

well, some good zombies in general are Relentless Dead, Cryptbreaker, Prized Amalgam and Geralf's Messenger all great cards in general. some good synergy in the deck might be with Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip and Risen Executioner both great in the deck as well. you also could try Haunted Dead and Lord of the Undead or maybe even Liliana's Mastery.

Personally, one of the first things I'd suggest doing is to take out the Revenant Patriarch and Corpulent Corpses. If the goal of the deck is to end the game early, then you should probably be taking out the cards that take a while to get out. Some good cheap cards you can get would be Bone Splinters, Plague Belcher, Diregraf Colossus, Lord of the Accursed, Carrion Feeder, Nantuko Husk, Voracious Null, and Wayward Servant. Some good expensive-ish cards you could get would be Geralf's Messenger, Gravecrawler, Relentless Dead, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and Endless Ranks of the Dead.

You've got a lot of cards in here that seem to have made the list simply because they're zombies (Blighted Bat, Carrion Screecher, Moaning Wall , etc). I would cut anything that is basically a pile of stats with the zombie tag and add some more synergistic zombies. Some great ones that aren't currently included are Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Gravecrawler, Cryptbreaker, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Relentless Dead, Plague Belcher, Noxious Ghoul, Corpse Harvester, and Vengeful Dead.
In addition, I'd run a lot more lands than 26. 36-40 is a good guideline in my opinion for any non-green edh deck. You might also want some sacrifice outlets in order to exploit Athreos's ability when you have an opponent with low life. Finally, you might want to explore some creature-based removal instead of instants/sorceries to further synergize with Athreos. Wispmare and Shriekmaw are some good cards for that slot.

What's your opinion on Nameless Inversion?
I can kill most of the same things Lightning Bolt can kill. It's more expensive, but Undead Warchief makes it cheaper, and Lord of the Undead can pull it back from the graveyard to your hand, and Diregraf Colossus will recognize it as a zombie spell. I guess in a pinch, it can be used to pump one of your dudes.

This being said, I like options such as Death Baron, Lord of the Undead, Undead Warchief, etc. I will probably swap out Abattoir Ghoul for Death Baron, Liliana's Reaver for Undead Warchief, and Ammit Eternal for Lord of the Undead, that way anything I play will boost everything else up.
I'm also considering options like Attrition, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Call to the Grave, for more board presence and control. Considering that I want all these +1/+1 zombies, maybe it would be good if I had more options to get a lot of 2/2 black zombies onto the battlefield. Shepherd of Rot could also be used late game, because by that time I'll have a few +1/+1 zombies out there so he can't be instantly lightning bolted.
I also don't have much use for Stromgald Crusader, (I don't need flying, my way of getting around enemy creatures is menace / fear) but I approved it because I like the way it looks. I'm simple like that.
