Hi, I recommend you that take out Binding Mummy and Dreg Mangler, it's better to use the Dread Wanderer because recursion and Lord of the Accursed because pump you zombies and give them evasion. Another thing it's take out Corpse Knight and try Relentless Dead because can return itself and sometimes another threat.

For you mana base try the Kaladesh fastlands Blooming Marsh x4 + Concealed Courtyard x1 because your principal color is black, green and white are more like splash, and also your curve is low. Another land you must use it's Castle Locthwain x2, give you the black you need and if needed card draw. If you can use Mutavault x2 its another that also benefits of your Zombie Lords.

In your sideboard you can take out Disposal Mummy for Scavenging Ooze because potentially can remove more cards and also grow. Another big threat you can add it's Kaya, Orzhov Usurper and replace Storrev, Devkarin Lich, the reason are that it's more difficult to kill a planeswalker than a creature in the format, can giveyou sustain exiling cards, kill a threat from aggro decks with low curve like mono red, and eventually with Kaya's ultimate win matches.

KibaAlpha I hear you on the Dark Ritual and friends, I will reconsider after I get more games under my belt, my gut feeling is that I will stay away from them and continue to rely on mana rocks and treasure tokens to ramp. I expect Pawn of Ulamog , Pitiless Plunderer , Sifter of Skulls , Black Market , Revel in Riches and Smothering Tithe will be doing alot of work.

I will however take your recommendation and add Orzhov Locket to my mana rocks, my only copy of Arcane Signet will stay in my other deck for now.

Erebos, God of the Dead is a great card and I already have a copy but I will instead add Erebos, Bleak-Hearted as soon as Theros beyond Death set is released. I'll also be adding Yawgmoth, Thran Physician for more draw.

Gutterbones and Relentless Dead are great suggestions thanks, Tenacious Dead is already in the deck. I am not set on Tokens at all, self recurring creatures are better.

I strongly suggest you reconsider your decision to not run Dark Ritual and Bubbling Muck .

White/Black does not have much in the way of getting extra land in to play. You need to capitalize on the lands you have.

Remember you are playing Aristocrats. You need at least 3 pieces on the field to make it work. A lot of mana is key to keep recuring your creatures and recasting.

I recommend Cabal Ritual as well.

I myself have opted to remove Lotus Petal from my own build.

Don’t overlook Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. It’s good card draw and you need plenty.

Erebos, God of the Dead is high value card draw as well as keeping your opponents from gaining life.

If you are worried about life add Deathgreeter .

If you can get yourself Orzhov Locket and Arcane Signet .

Self recuring creatures you might consider Gutterbones , Relentless Dead and Tenacious Dead unless you are dead set on tokens.

First attempt at Zombies, any suggestions?

Get a pile of zombies out early. Add to that with Endless Ranks of the Dead

Eat Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead with Carrion Feeder .

Keep my hand full with Undead Augur and Cryptbreaker .

Gravecrawler and Relentless Dead bounce back and Gisa and Geralf adds to that effect and stacks my graveyard with creatures that can be brought back.

Undead Warchief and Death Baron plusses everyone up.

Finish 'em off with Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Gray Merchant of Asphodel
