Overseer of the Damned is good for more zombies. also i'd go with Coat of Arms instead of Herald's Horn beyond that it's pretty good! I also have something like this except with The Scarab God at the helm , but it's still effective with Gisa and Geralf leading

Looks good. The only suggestion I have is switching out Indulgent Tormentor for a more mana positive and powerful demon like Archfiend of Despair, Overseer of the Damned, or even Sower of Discord. I would only let you play with this once in my play group, then you get hated out, cause... ugh. +1 from me.

Rune-Scarred Demon might be the best budget option for reanimation. Anything you bring back from the grave should cost at least 7 mana otherwise it's just better to play the card outright. Your three main concerns for the deck should be stuff to bring back from the grave stuff to bring it back and stuff to put it into the yard. Herald of Anguish Lord of the Void Overseer of the Damned Caller of the Pack are all decent choices

You are welcome to check out my Kaalia deck: Saints, Sinners, and Serpents, it's a little out of date and I've replaced some so-so "meh" cards with much better ones :) She's one of my favorite decks to play and I have some recommendations that I think would fit well with yours.

I would say to take out Disciple of Bolas, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Sire Of Insanity, and Demonlord Belzenlok. Personally I'm not a fan of these cards in Kaalia and I think there are far better options, IMO.

I would definitley add in: Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Akroma, Angel of Fury, Aurelia, the Warleader, and Platinum Angel in addition to other cards you're wanting to put in - those will buff your deck immensely. Personally, I'd try to fit them all in. I might take out Overseer of the Damned and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, as well.

As for enchantments I'd also put in Fervor as another way to give Kaalia haste. Personally, I'm a big fan of Expedite to give her haste for one mana and draw a card. I'd consider investing in Land Tax or Weathered Wayfarer as ways to fix your land.

Let me know if this helps!!

The weakest cards after that point are probably meta dependent.

Exploration is purely luck based in your build (Unless your group House Rules Partial Paris Mulligan). When its in your opening hand its fantastic but more often than not its comes down too late to do anything. Deathreap Ritual isn't so great if you primarily play vs 1 or 2 players Herald of Leshrac draws a giagantic target on you vs 2 or more. Aetherworks Marvel probably won't proc very often unless you see a ton of field wipes Void Winnower is good against combo decks and Overseer of the Damned is good against creature and graveyard based decks but both are situational.

Damn that Wonder is a spicy include, I totally overlooked it before and I absolutely need one for now.

Living Death has put up results when I played it since I aim to have as many creatures in the yard as I can, which usually ends up being far more than any of our opponents, sometimes even more than them combined. Don't forget a lot of our creatures come in with EtB kill abilities, so consider this is on our turn we can arrange the stack as we want, meaning we can have those creatures go off first. Having a Phyrexian Obliterator, Duplicant, Hostage Taker, and Overseer of the Damned come in and wipe the 4 biggest threats on the board really makes Living Death more viable than you'd think, and with cards like Buried Alive you can pick and choose what you want on your board after the LD. Plus, you can always rip problem cards out early using SG's ability. Your meta might be more creature-heavy though, so be careful if so.

Keep running that Zombie Apocalypse btw if you like it. EDH is the flavor over function format and it's not a bad card at all, especially if you're running as many zombies as you are. My build barely runs any zombies at this point so I saw no success with it, but that card has a ridiculously high ceiling in a deck like this so have fun with it.

I hear you on the Cabal Coffers thing btw. I wanted one for a long time when I first got back into the game, but the more I play it the more I realize how much it sucks for me outside of mono decks. Crypt of Agadeem is where it's at and I'm happy to see it in this list.

So yeah, def like where this is going. Got some real spicy includes with cards like Training Grounds (which I want but am too cheap for after finishing off my modern decks) and Curse of the Bloody Tome which I'm gonna find some ways to add in. Really digging this list though, looks great.
