Black has two great, although high CMC, boardwipe spells in Plague Wind and In Garruk's Wake. You might consider those if you play in a creature-heavy meta.

Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are also some other considerations to getting your commander damage through. I run those in my Vorath deck. Cards like Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are also good staples to run in a swamp-heavy deck.

I like the build, and this is the first time I've seen that commander. Thanks for sharing it.

Nice looking Zombie Deck!! I've got a couple ideas for you on ways you can make it a more powerful multiplayer deck.

My first recommendation is that unless you are playing mostly 1v1 duels I would just cut all the one use discard spells like duress. Spells like that are technically card disadvantage because if there are four players and you use one card to get rid of one card from one player then compared to the rest of the other players you are down a card also. Discard like that is only extremely powerful against one opponent. It can be good, but they don't really control the game in EDH the way they do in other formats. I would then cut the lilianas caress and waste not too. Also I personally don't like corpseweft & necromancer's stockpile (not enough creatures to use for either) or unbreathing horde (no evasion). Those cards in my experience playing zombie tribal were underwhelming.

As far as additions there are some more "Lord" effects like Adaptive Automaton, Ascendant Evincar, and Paragon of Open Graves that you can include. Phyrexian Altar and gravecrawler creates an infinite combo, and if you if you have something like Plague Belcher or Vengeful Dead in play in too, it can kill the whole table on the spot or with diregraf colossus it would make infinite zombies. I love Curse of Shallow Graves and Zombie Apocalypse in my zombie deck, they are great tribal cards. Running so many swamps you could go for Extraplanar Lens (although then I would switch to snow covered swamps) Lashwrithe, Nightmare Lash, and Strata Scythe. Larceny is a great repeatable discard effect. Scourge of Nel Toth is a good beater, it keeps coming back and flies. Buried Alive can even fetch it along with gravecrawler and vengeful pharoah. Or Filth with urborg in play for an unblockable horde.

Here is a link to my zombie tribal deck, maybe it will have more ideas for you. Even though mine has blue in it there may still be things for you to find. Happy gathering!!

your mana base might want some work as well, this is basically a mono-black deck so having 1each island and mountain seems good. also no red/blue lands or mana rocks (izzet signet).

maybe just one Lashwrithe/Nightmare Lash type effect.

Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence could do work

I think you should take a hard look at all the non-zombies you have as well. Tribal decks i think work best when all the pieces help each other

Also your only way of dealing with enchantments is an overloaded cyclonic rift. maybe look at Oblivion Stone or Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

I know it goes against the theme but Goblin Bombardment is great!

Speaking of themes, what's your main game plan do you think/want? Commander kills and ways of synergizing with him or a zombie deck with a great commander?

I looked at your list and I came up with the following suggestions you might want to consider:

You could drop the landcount by 3. It's pretty steep now.

If you need more help on this deck or any other Commander project, then give me a headsup on my wall :) Just click my name and post something on there.

It is always great to recieve an upvote on my favourite deck, which you can see here. Just click the 'Upvote' button on the left if you like what you see.

Enjoy the game!

Thanks a lot for these suggestions. I have been playing around with different types of equipment for a while now and the suggestions you make are excellent. In my meta, Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are quite effective because nearly everyone plays Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and I can punish them for doing so.

I have been juggling with the pump spells as well because, as you say, they usually don't do enough and they're dead cards without something to pump. In addition to the equipment, would loading up on more creatures with Infect be an idea? I'm really not sure about what ratio I'm looking for to keep it effective.

I'd forgotten about Relic Putrescence. I'll give it a shot.

Again, thanks for these suggestions! I'll make some changes over the next couple of days and post my progress!
