x12721 Thank you for the advice! I’m making this on a budget, so unfortunately Thoughtseize is out, but thanks for the suggestion of Gray Merchant of Asphodel ! Murderous Cut is a budget alternative for fatal push; being able to exile cards I know I can’t get back and that won’t feed my wincons to kill a creature is a good effect. In my play testing, I never lacked for cards in my grave.

ShutUpMokuba I will swap out Grasp of Darkness for Walk the Plank , but I’m definitely keeping it in the board in case I face Hazoret the Fervent or another indestructible wincon.

I would lessen the number of Gaea's Blessing to one, Mausoleum Secrets to two, and Murderous Cut to two or three. From there you can add more creatures such as Prized Amalgam , maybe a Syr Konrad, the Grim as honorary Liliana's Indignation s, and possibly Gurmag Angler to beat into the opponent. Any way to increase your creature count to increase the power of your Indignations. Cycling creatures could prove worthwhile for both finding Indignation and increasing its power such as Windcaller Aven and Street Wraith . Lastly more mill rocks could prove worthwhile as it will make Creeping Chill and Narcomoeba better, things like Shriekhorn

It's tougher on a budget, since some of the best answers to big creatures in that style of deck are Grave Pact , and Dictate of Erebos , but it's manageable. If you can't fit those into the budget, Butcher of Malakir and Attrition are less expensive and can help, and since you'll be able to keep up on cards pretty easily with Yawgmoth's draw ability, you can afford to run a few targeted removal spells like Hero's Downfall , Murder , Murderous Cut , Ultimate Price , Doom Blade , Vraska's Contempt , Victim of Night etc, all of which can answer problematic creatures when needed.

For starters, Cryptbreaker is one of the best 1cmc zombies ever. Definitely worth running a playset of them. Liliana's Reaver isn't great, given that it needs to both attack and deal damage to an opponent to get any value. You've also got access to an amazing finisher that is both in-tribe and synergistic with everything else: Gray Merchant of Asphodel . It does everything you want in a deck like this, both keeping you in the game and winning it for you. As for removal, you should play Fatal Push , as it is one of the best removal spells in the format. I would cut Empty the Pits and possibly Murderous Cut for them. Also consider Collective Brutality in both boards. For the landbase, I would only say adding Field of Ruin and possibly Witch's Cottage .


As for the sideboard: Dreadhorde Invasion is great against control, so I really like seeing that in here. You do need a playset of Leyline of the Void to stop any graveyard shenanigans. Also, Thoughtseize is playable, and should definitely be run in place of Specter's Shriek (As a playset). The only other suggestions I have would be relating to card advantage, however that may be just personal preference. I hope these help!

I would replace both Murderous Cut and Grasp of Darkness for better removal like Doom Blade or Walk the Plank ..
