@TheSilverZephyr Thanks for your feedback! Sideboarding is tough, there are a lot of good cards; and unfortunately I'm not currently able to play this deck competitively so my input here is unsubstantiated- but I'll take a crack at it.

Thanks for commenting! TMBRLZ, Open the Graves would change the playstyle of the deck a bit, but it's a great card! If I find that my current approach isn't cutting it, a more midrange deck with several copies could be good! I definitely see the appeal of Skeleton Archer, and have added 3 copies to the sideboard. Infectious Horror isn't bad, but if I can play Josu Vess, Lich Knight for the same cmc, I'd rather run him.

Bxbx, thanks for the further input, it's much appreciated. I will attempt to get my hands on a few Lilianas, but until then, I definitely see your points on the other cards. Necrotic Wound has been replaced with more reliable kill spells. Tattered Mummy has been replaced with Graveyard Marshal. I removed Barrier of Bones to add a few more copies of some key cards. Would you instead recommend running a few copies of Stitcher's Supplier, or are the 4 Diregraf Ghouls sufficient as one drops?

I think you don't have enough cards to dump things into your graveyard to really get the payoff you're looking for with cards like Lotleth Giant and Necrotic Wound and I think your curve is a little high for your land count but I wish you luck.

@Elf0491: you might cut a copy of Gruesome Menagerie.

Also, I would not play Barrier of Bones as you're playing some kind of aggressive deck. Except being a one drop it hasn't much to offer. You could replace it with another copy of Liliana, Untouched By Death and some copies of Graveyard Marshal.

I also think that Graveyard Marshal is better than Tattered Mummy.

And I think Necrotic Wound will really let you down. It's a dead card in so many situations. Play 1 at maximum and better play the full playset of Cast Down.

I know assassin's trophy is nice but I would make this a mono black list if you want a zombie deck that works in standard. I would use something like Barrier of Bones for protection, Midnight Reaper for card draw, Reassembling Skeleton for recursion, Graveyard Marshal for tokens and Necrotic Wound for removal. Something like that.

@TLucas1018 You're right, the deck is no longer "budget"- I've removed the #budget tag. Assassin's Trophy and Doom Whisperer may drop slightly in price but I'm just speculating. The former can be replaced with the full suite of Necrotic Wound, a 4x-2x swap of each may be the better option.

@_Delta_ I had not considered Bone Dragon, it seems like more of a sealed or limited bomb imo. Could be a decent replacement if you don't want to go the Lich's Mastery route.

Great Stuff, I've also been trying to compile a deck around Etrata, the Silencer. I included copies of both Narcomoeba and Creeping Chill to ultimately thin the deck out to draw Lazav, the Multifarious, and Etrata more often.

Since the Narcomoebas have flying I included copies of Nightveil Sprite, and a Favorable Winds. I was thinking that the Nacromoebas, in addition to thinning the deck, could serve as extra bodies to pump up Necrotic Wound, provide Vicious Offering fodder in a pinch, and become decent blockers in tandem with the Nightveil Sprites under the affects of Favorable Winds.

If you end up drawing Creeping Chills you can always just discard them with jump-start, and shuffle them back into your deck later with Enhanced Surveillance

What do you think?

Update 03.10

Adding one Pelt Collector as a 3/3 reanimation-target / aggressive threat and shifted the one Deadeye Tracker into the sideboard.

One Vraska, Golgari Queen had to go to make room for a land^^.

Still thinking about Golgari Raiders, which are included as a one-of in the mainboard for now. I dont think I like them in the sideboard.

Midnight Reaper seems pretty good as a one-of, maybe there should be even more of them in the deck.

One Necrotic Wound got cut. I would like to put it into the sideboard, but there isnt really any room for now.
