I'm not really sure about Megrim or Liliana's Caress. They are both dependent on actually being in play as your opponent discards - unlike The Rack which you can play after you've put the game in top-deck mode, and because of the constant threat of damage, discourage your opponent from playing anything.

On top of that, you play Smallpox, which puts a predictable pressure on your lands, even in a monocolored deck. It just fits so well with the deck concept...

Either you should go for zombie-aggro, or you should let Diregraf Ghoul and Butcher Ghoul stay at home.

I've played a more creature-based version of this commander, so while my suggestions may be skewed towards creatures, I hope they'll be helpful at the very least.

Zombie Lords

Honorary Zombies

Also, Grimgrin, Gravecrawler, and Rooftop Storm is an infinite loop for massive damage, if that kind of thing matters to you.

Zombie Tribal is Best Tribal! Your list looks very solid :) I really like zombies, so I have a few suggestions: Nightscape Familiar is awesome for getting out your blue guys earlier. Lord of the Undead is a great and very OG lord. Cryptbreaker is an amazing 1-drop that does wonders for your graveyard. Dralnu, Lich Lord is risky but soooo good for getting value out of your spells. Lich Lord of Unx has a lot of versatility. Necromancer's Stockpile is a bloody musthave for zombs. Grimoire of the Dead plays in nicely with your graveyard-game :) .... I'm basically feeding you My OG Zombies-deck, but hey, they're good cards :)

For untapping Grim-boy there's always Freed from the Real and Thornbite Staff. oh, and Faces of the Past!

Blue has the funniest bit of removal: Reality Shift :P

Stay frosty, dude :)

@HOPMONSTER, yup alot of these cards were in my Fat Bottomed Girls (Liliana Reanimator) deck, which housed nearly all of the reanimation spells. alot of these got trimmed down to to add better support for Volrath the Fallen himself ( Whispersilk Cloak, Lightning Greaves, ect).

-Victimize is nice, but having two requirements to be met to activate means the simpler Animate Dead or Necromancy gets that spot

-Rise of the Dark Realms and Living Death funny and amazing, but im not discarding or self milling enough to warrant it

-Putrid Imp does what Necromancer's Stockpile does but cheaper, and out of 29 creatures, 3 of them are zombies

-Palace Siege is cool and has good utility with the life gain/loss

-I NEED A Sidisi, Undead Vizier

-Champion of Stray Souls is interesting... if he was legendary, hed be a great recursion/reanimator general but i dont want him in my deck, his abilities are too expensive

-Nightmare Lash and Lashwrithe may get worked in there, they combo too well with Liliana of the Dark Realms, plus they can be equipped little to no mana... i hate 4 drops though :/

ill take these under consideration, thanks for the advice and if im missing something with combos and whatnot, let me know :)

Deck speed is to slow IMO. Adding Cryptbreaker or Necromancer's Stockpile could really speed up your deck WHILE being compatible with the Zombie theme.
