Commence the Endgame and Angrath, Captain of Chaos . Angrath in particular can serve as a replacement for Relentless Advance .

Hey Sorin_Markov_1947, the Foulmire Knight and Murderous Rider are really just quick replacements I popped in to convert the deck from old Standard to current standard. There was a few things that had to come out. I do like Murderous Rider a lot though, as it kinda replaced Vraska's Contempt . Not sure what other Zombie's would be good. I agree that Relentless Advance is expensive, but it can be a big surprise to the opponent sometimes, like they think they have a few more turns before the lifelink from Dreadhorde Invasion kicks in and BAM, lol. Feel free to suggest other cards :)

Why the zombie knights? They don't get buffed by Eternal Skylord or Gleaming Overseer

I don't like Relentless Advance . It's narrow and only 3 power for 4 cost.

Personally, I don't like amass decks, but I'll do my best to help you out.

You need more creatures. Specifically cheap ones to get you to the mid-late game. Lazotep Reaver and Gleaming Overseer both somewhat fit those criteria, and give you a bit of amass effect too. Lazotep Plating offers protection and an early amass. Eternal Skylord is increasing that mana curve again, but it offers you some reach and protection you sorely need. I'd advise doing some testing on Bleeding Edge , because it's a removal help and amasses, but it's a double-black cost at turn three and comes out at sorcery speed. There's just not a good replacement for Cast Down in these colors. Sorry.

You wouldn't think of putting The Royal Scions in this deck normally, but it's grixis colors, gives you card filtering, and can give trample to your massive army to finish out games, so it's worth considering at least. Barge In isn't bad for trample either.

Now, to make room for all these suggestions, we need to take out some cards too. Relentless Advance is narrow, and for only 3 power you're spending four mana. Ill-Gotten Inheritance is low-impact and expensive. Cast Down and Fountain of Renewal just rotated. Since we're adding more creatures, Invade the City isn't as good, but it's still worth putting in the deck so I'd recommend going down to two copies of it. Widespread Brutality also loses some of its value since it now eliminates your creatures too, so maybe 2-3 copies of it as well.

I think with Fountain of Renewal and Ill-Gotten Inheritance you were too focused on not losing so much life from Dreadhorde Invasion . In this meta, you need to be prepared to lose life from your own cards. That card will only get you in trouble if you go late-game and can't draw Enter the God-Eternals .

I think WOTC will expand on the army creature-type, and then amass will have more of a place. But possibly only after all the amass effects have rotated just for balancing.

The main issue I see with this deck is that its slow. With many shocklands that enter tapped, casting bigger spells quicker is harder. I know you're on a budget, but I'd still recommend Blood Crypt , Steam Vents , and Watery Grave over your Guildgates.

Use Honor the God-Pharaoh for even more amass plus card draw. Bolt Bend can protect your army from removal and Chainwhip Cyclops can pave the way for your army.

Flux Channeler helps boost your zombie army even more, and Relentless Advance can do it in a hurry. Stealth Mission can help you hit the opponent for a lot of damage with a powered up Zombie Army.

Vizier of the Scorpion amasses and gives your zombie army deathtouch. Unlikely Aid can protect it from removal, and Aid the Fallen can return an amass creature from your graveyard, allowing you to do it again.

Lazotep Reaver for Two bodies, Relentless Advance for amassing, Soul Diviner for card draw, Lazotep Plating for protection and amass, Toll of the Invasion to get rid of problematic cards, Tyrant's Scorn to get rid of chump blockers or bounce creatures, Otherwise, nice deck, +1

SE336 on Can I amass multiple targets ...

So I just made a Varina, Lich Queen commander deck-Varina-Liliana Zombie Army Commander Deck that uses a lot of the new War of the Spark cards like Commence the Endgame or Relentless Advance to amass a Zombie Army token if I don't have one and then add the counters to it. My question is can I use Arcane Adaptation to name all my creatures to be the "Army" type and so for each "Amass" card add tokens to any creature I have then? If so do I have to put all the counters on one creature for every card effect that says "Amass" or can I distribute them however I like?
