This is a really cool deck! Zombies are really amazing, and it looks like you have a very competitive version of them.

What made you pick the Zombie lords over other lords, such as Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Accursed, Lord of the Undead, and Risen Executioner? Or other Zombies-matter cards, like Skirk Ridge Exhumer, Plague Belcher, and Graveborn Muse.

If you're looking for crazy, kind of out-there ideas, it might be worth checking out Helldozer, Army of the Damned, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Grave Titan, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Liliana, Death's Majesty, or Necromancer's Stockpile.

Lifebane Zombie, Stillmoon Cavalier, Shamble Back, Celestial Purge, and even Selfless Spirit could make good SB additions.

I'm fascinated by Withered Wretch and Revoke Existence. What brought you to choose them over more traditional choices?

I'm even more interested as to why you didn't choose Path to Exile, considering that nearly every other brew out there running white uses it. Lack of slots? Helps opponent too much? Does it not synergize like Fatal Push does?

Also, what are your thoughts on Blue for zombie decks? There are plenty of good cards

Finally, your mana base. I'd consider taking out Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Bloodstained Mire, and a couple Swamps for Marsh Flats, a Plains, and ~2 Mutavaults. The Plains allows for you to cast stuff with a Blood Moon on the field, or fix your mana after getting a creature Path to Exiled. Also, Concealed Courtyards might be worth checking out, since you're so low to the ground. They're rotating out of Standard soon as well.

Sorry for the wall of text full of stuff you probably thought of before! Thanks for posting your deck!

Hi thanks for the advice. Obviously Shamble Back is a nice card, but in this deck is important to Trigger the Binding Mummy ETB effect as instant to gain some advantage, so Vile Rebirth is totally necessary.

I would replace Vile Rebirth with Shamble Back sure you lose the instant speed but you get to gain a little life.

JoeBob21 Hey there!

I'm currently running Ghoulcaller's Chant as recursion, however I'll look into Shamble Back. My lifegain comes from Gray Merchant of Asphodel, but I don't really want to gain much life as I'd much rather spend that mana killing my opponents. Thanks for the comment!

Shamble Back is good because i saw no graveyard recursion so this wont necessarely hurt that much. Crypt Incursion isnt that bad because (a you have no lifegain (b creatures die a lot in pauper. Trespasser's Curse is pretty good because people can spam out creatures fast when there all commons
