Probably, is better Vraska, Golgari Queen than the old vraska, causa u can sac supplier to her +2 to mill for creatures, draw and gain and make giant bigger. I dont really like the Lich, sincerely, he doesn't seem so overpowered to me to play in 4 copies without ways tyo recover life back, so i'm more focused on the giant OTK plan than anything else. We can also add some Rise from the Grave alongside The Eldest Reborn to bring back Lotleth Giant cheating on casting cost

I feel like a dedicated deck to reanimating big creatures would be an entirely different deck than what I'm doing here. I think UB Recursion is better than reanimation in all honesty, because we recur a ton of our threats. If only we still had Liliana, Death's Majesty and God-Pharaoh's Gift. :(

I do think a reanimator deck with creatures like Chromium, Razaketh, Nicol Bolas and cards like Rise from the Grave would be fun, but slow in Standard. That's why I like milling and recurring the smaller threats.

Thank you for your kind words!

If you’re playing Zombie Dragons with friends there’s no reason to limit your card selection to Modern. Bladewing's Thrall isn’t a modern legal card anyway as only cards printed after Eight Edition are legal in modern, unless otherwise banned.

Bladewing the Risen and other dragons with reanimation spells like Rise from the Grave and many other options can be a fun deck. There are many ways to fill your graveyard and bring stuff back...

First off, the mana base is all junked up. 16 Swamp mana-base is kind of shaky, even with Memorial to Folly.

Second off, the curve is a bit wonky. Liliana, the Necromancer needs to go, as it is not only not particularly synergetic with the tribal theme, but also takes up an already crowded 5-mana cost spell slot, as well as conflicting with the 2 other Liliana cards.

Arisen Gorgon is essentially a vanilla 3/3 for 3 mana, and I can't help but feel is just not worth running. Plague Belcher, Dread Shade, Isareth the Awakener, or even Ammit Eternal are more worth running over the Gorgon in my opinion.

Dread Wanderer obviously the best choice as a 1-drop creature, and you can pick them up for roughly a dollar each right now, so I don't see why Diregraf Ghoul and Festering Mummy and taking that spot.

Anyways, just taking about mainboard here, I would recommend:

-1 Liliana, the Necromancer -4 Cradle of the Accursed -1 Memorial to Folly -1 Rise from the Grave (maybe sideboard; Liliana does the same thing and more) -3 Arisen Gorgon

+6 Swamp +2 Isareth the Awakener +2 Plague Belcher +2 Dread Wanderer

There, replaced some cards to add more consistency and cohesion, and the cards I suggest to go in are valued less all together than the cards I suggested to drop from the Mainboard.

Some more suggestions I've found are Gravespawn Sovereign, Zombie Trailblazer, Plague Belcher, Noxious Ghoul, Zombie Master, Fleshbag Marauder, Cryptbreaker, Corpse Harvester, Corpse Connoisseur, Buried Alive, Noosegraf Mob, and Phyrexian Delver.

Every tribal deck that I build and that Ive seen others build typically have about 35-ish members of the tribe in the deck, so maybe cutting some of the 5 mana reanimation and other mediocre cards for more zombies would be wise.

Some suggestions to cut are Corpse Hauler, Divination, Necromantic Summons, Rise from the Grave, Sightless Ghoul, Butcher Ghoul, Highborn Ghoul, Skeletal Vampire (unless you're planning on running death baron then definitely keep him), Walking Corpse, Servant of Tymaret and Sidisi's Pet.

Really fun deck! it hits home for me i love a reanimator style deck. so with the rotation luming have you thought about replacements for this?

Liliana, the Necromancer , Rise from the Grave would help. check out my deck thats pretty close to yours but with dragons

joaoguaxinim thank you for the suggestions! I put a couple Reassembling Skeleton into the mainboard, but couldn't see Bone Dragon as a good enough creature. He's generally just too slow, and to be honest, kind of bad. However, I did add two Rise from the Grave and a Desecrated Tomb into the sideboard for big creature decks and graveyard hate. I also added in two Stitcher's Supplier, as I agree that it will be a good engine for Lili.

You could go zombies + skeletons to benefit from baron's text. I could see Reassembling Skeleton and Bone Dragon entering your deck. also, Rise from the Grave can be a good card in your 75, benefiting from killing your op creatures and getting them back +1+1 and deathtouch can be devasting. Not to mention Stitcher's Supplier that can feed your gy to a liliana's ult or to get value via Marshal/Dragon. Also, you could use Desecrated Tomb on your sideboard against GY hate for game 2.
