Also you can remove only 2xDrown in Filth and instead play only 2xRelentless Dead, but then consider playing some fetchlands so you can fill your graveyard with lands without mill

Thanks for reply Ghenni

I would replace 2xVisions of Beyond and 4xDrown in Filth with 4xThought Scour and 3 or 4 copies of Abrupt Decay. I would also remove the Door of Destinies and the Risen Executioner because they do not give that much value when played and the 4-cost hurts the tempo, and add instead 3 or 4 copies of Relentless Dead

Hi there Ghenni,

I think you can use Abrupt Decay, because it is an all-purpose removal. Also you can use some tech cards like Thought Scour as a draw and a mill card. Relentless Dead and Ghoulcaller's Chant can be used for returning Lotleth Troll and some other creatures.

You can try Rancor to empower deck's aggro elements

HashMasta Thanks for the input think I'm gonna keep my eye out for some one-drop zombies and cards like Relentless Dead, Endless Ranks of the Dead, and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

I recently made a zombie deck for modern and I have some suggestions. I do not know your budget but here are my suggestions

Gravecrawler - 2/1 creature that can reanimate itself for 1. bingo

Cryptbreaker - great 1 drop utility creature. can both draw you cards and create tokens

Endless Ranks of the Dead - if you can keep this around for about 3 turns, you usually just won the game. a horde of zombies that just gets bigger without answers.

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born good card in that it is a heavy hitter and can spot remove the biggest creatures.

Claim / Fame This is a fairly new card I am trying out. Can be used to bring back cheap zombies.

Relentless Dead - card that can both provide self resurrect and bring back your other zombies

Lord of the Undead and Cemetery Reaper - both good zombie lords with special abilities that can be versatile towards what you play against

Would also recommend the dimir dual lands like Watery Grave and Polluted Delta.

Hey there! Cool deck! I feel like your problems could mostly be solved by making your deck faster. There's really only one viable ramp deck in Modern, TitanShift, and that's because ramp is its win condition.

To that end, I would cut most of the expensive cards in your deck altogether: Marrow Chomper, Vulturous Zombie, Doubling Season, Whip of Erebos, maybe even Endless Ranks of the Dead, and instead focus more on powering out some solid early Zombies like Gravecrawler, Diregraf Ghoul, Geralf's Messenger, etc. You could even go for Slitherhead if you need to dig deep enough. I would also cut Golgari Charm for some more aggressive 2-drops, probably something like Relentless Dead.

Additionally, if you need to add more cards to replace the above cuts, I would recommend going up to the full 4 Lotleth Troll, followed by the full 4 of some of your lords.

Finally, Overgrown Tomb is much better than Evolving Wilds.

In any case, good luck, and I hope this helps!

I've had a few games where Stromgald Crusader is more useful than a Relentless Dead. You've probably already thought of this but I didn't see anything about it in the comments so I thought I'd throw it out there. +1 from me. zombies are the bestest

I am guessing this build maybe started from the intro pack (Just guessing), which actually made me love zombies :)

First of you can look at my Zombie deck for inspiration, sometimes it helps to see others builds.

I don't know if you are on a budget or you are going another route for your build, so feel free to say no to any of my suggestions.

First of i would probaly cut Oath of Liliana since you dont run any planeswalkers and i dont see it fit so well in.

You could run Tragic Slip.

When you are running zombie tribal like this you want lords to support them: Cemetery Reaper, Undead Warchief, Lord of the Undead. The more budget version is: Lord of the Accursed or if you feel like splashing blue in then Diregraf Captain.

In zombie decks you definetly want to run a number of copies of these two: Cryptbreaker and Diregraf Colossus.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel works wonders in mono black decks and it has the zombie tag.

If you're not on a budget definetly: Relentless Dead, Gravecrawler.
