Here's a couple I have in my budget black deck:Festering Mummy, Quest for the Gravelord, Doomed Dissenter, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Hopefully these help :)

It's actually been rare that I've had any problems with land drops. Most of the deck is two mana, and has enough interaction to make my opponent stall as well. I would have no problem with adding in one more land, but 3 more is a little much based on my playtesting. You're also not the only one who keeps telling me to take out Basilisk Collar and Quest for the Gravelord, however they have done well for me. I may end up taking them out eventually. Thanks for the comment and suggestions APPLE01DOJ

first of all:

modern is a fast format. 5 and 4 mana spells or abilities that are 3 colored, like you have, are not likely to even hit the battlefield because you'll die before it even happens (in most cases). if those 5 & 4 drops are not important to you, i suggest removing them from the deck, and putting creatures like Bile Urchin, Bloodbriar, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bontu the Glorified, Child of Thorns , Corpse Hauler, Doomed Necromancer, Frostling, Mortician Beetle

spells like Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters, Collateral Damage, Crack the Earth, Eldritch Evolution, Fling, Footsteps of the Goryo, Infernal Plunge, Plunge into Darkness

noncreature permanents like Demonic Appetite, Evolutionary Leap, Quest for the Gravelord

and sideboarding Boggart Forager

i'll keep searching for you tomorrow, hope this helps for now

twistedmage i can see that working but the Dark Prophecy helps you with the card draw, the Quest for the Gravelord could be switched with Claws of Gix. But i think that Quest for the Gravelord is really useful when you pull of your combo's with Voldaren Pariah  Flip so you get another 5/5 zombie on the BF. But thx for the idea.

Maybe removing a copy of Dark Prophecy or Quest for the Gravelord for a Claws of Gix to replenish some life lose and its also a sac outlet

You can replace Quest for the Gravelord with Rooftop Storm for starters. It may be only one mana, but its effects are not very good since a single flicker effect will erase the 5/5 token. Cemetery Reaper should replace Ghoulcaller's Accomplice since Reaper's ability is instant speed, so you can respond to a reanimation target from an opponent's grave. The Scarab God is the exact same CMC as Possessed Skaab, and has it's own natural recursion. Grave Titan should replace Grixis Slavedriver when you get the opportunity as the titan makes twice as many zombies for simply entering the battlefield, and attacking.

Ryjo on Is my deck legal for ...

Being printed in a Duel Deck doesn't make a card standard legal, though being printed in a Planeswalker deck does. Quest for the Gravelord is from original Zendikar, and is not standard legal. Ob Nixilis Reignited is from Battle for Zendikar block, which is standard legal until late September.
