I cant see how you will fill your gravreyard very quick and you will be stuck with a lot of high CMC cards in your hand.

Definitely add in Stinkweed Imp as a way to fill your graveyard and get deathtouch (replace the bonepicker).

Add in another way to get key cards into your graveyard to reanimate like Cryptbreaker, Dark Deal, Heir of Falkenrath, Liliana of the Veil, Necromancer's Stockpile, Pack Rat, Pale Rider of Trostad, Sinister Concoction, Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Skirsdag Supplicant and Zombie Infestation are some good choices in mono black to fill your graveyard initially.

Red has some great options to fill the graveyard, like Faithless Looting if you decide to add another colour.

Heir of Falkenrath  Flip seems better than Pale Rider of Trostad to me

Nice deck, love it

My madness deck that I have updated for this set has been functioning fairly well. I have 4 Fiery Temper 4 Alms of the Vein I also use two Hazoret's Monument for when I play either Pale Rider of Trostad or bloodrage brawler to give some extra discard. Key to the City is good for helping Hazoret swing in and getting madness. Cryptbreaker doesn't seem too helpful in here just because of the zombie count is so low, similar with Battlefield Scavenger because he is your only exert card.

My deck is linked here if you wanna see it

Hey BlaineTog, that makes quite a lot of sense. Also took a look over your list and added Stromkirk Condemned instead of Pale Rider of Trostad, makes more sense to always have a Discard option on the battlefield rather then an ETB only action. Not to mention that's my favourite artist ... at least up until now.

I'll add one more Lightning Axe and four Fiery Temper, amd remove those two you mentioned. Indeed they seem good cards, maybe for another deck focused more on control.

have you considered Heir of Falkenrath  Flip or Lotleth Troll over Pale Rider of Trostad?

Lol I didn't think you'd be putting one together yourself so quickly. Kudos on being able to do so though.

I would ask whether you really feel there's enough instants/sorceries to warrant Niblis of Frost, since it is so few. Why not try something like Lost Legacy as maybe a 2 or 1 of and use the remaining space for say a Ghirapur Orrery or another Pale Rider of Trostad?

After play-testing, I think you are better off running Tormenting Voice than Cathartic Reunion, because Cathartic Reunion is a dead card unless you have 2 other cards in hand, and your deck can't afford to have a dead card in hand. Also, I really don't like the inconsistency of the combo Speedway Fanatic + Renegade Freighter. Without Speedway Fanatic, Renegade Freighter is simply too slow to make it a horrifying threat in your deck. Instead, play-test Scrapheap Scrounger + Built to Smash, or if you want more creatures: Furyblade Vampire, Zulaport Cutthroat, Syndicate Trafficker, Pale Rider of Trostad, Heir of Falkenrath, Fretwork Colony, or Lathnu Hellion. Other than that, you do indeed have a rush deck capable of winning on turn 5 against most decks.

Dude, I like this, but needs some cleaning up. Here's my suggestions:1 Ishkanah, Grafwidow, 1 Distended Mindbender, 3 Haunted Dead, in place of the 1 less Mindbender & Haunted Dead, put 2 Pale Rider of Trostad; instead of Noose Constrictor, try 3 Wharf Infiltrator. I'd say only 3 Vessel of Nascency. Instead of 1-of creatures, add 2 Unsubstantiate, and/or 2 counter spells. Run 25 lands and swap the mountain with the 1-of card-draw artifact dude. I like this though, hope these suggestions help a little!
