Shepherd of Rot Discussion

I like your list. In my 20 years of playing I have always had a Zombie deck in my collection. My current list is here at The dead may walk it plays pretty similiar to yours. One card i would suggest is Grave Defiler it lets you refill your hand and get more dudes to play. One thing i dont currently use but you could try is Corpse Harvester to search for lords or whatever you need at the time. Another card i used to play a lot is Shepherd of Rot back in the day when i played things like Sangrophage and such to play a quick aggro game. Hopefully that helps in some way.

I would replace Geralf's Masterpiece for Advanced Stitchwing just cause hes easier to get back is still a flier and doesnt get smaller. Monastery Siege for Ancient Excavation so you can draw a bunch and discard a bunch, this helps with your commander getting some Z's in the grave. I'd also replace Victimize and Buried Alive with Whispering Madness and Day's Undoing. Dark Salvation for Necromantic Selection with all the new wheel affects you should be able to grab something good and its another board wipe. Maalfeld Twins for Overseer of the Damned just because hes super impactfu, a flier makes Z's and kills something when it comes out. Scourge of Nel Toth for Call to the Grave cause sacrifice is really good especially against voltron commander damage decks. Raving Dead for Phyrexian Delver. Wight of Precinct Six for Shepherd of Rot. Entomb for Graf Harvest purely for the menace, butyou could use the other abilitly in a pinch if your commander gets killed to much. Necrogen Mists for Windfall, again just so you get card draw and are still forcing people to discard. Epiphany at the Drownyard for Grave Pact. and to be sure you can get your value from cards like this id nix Nim Deathmantle for Ashnod's Altar. Geralf's Messenger is slow and 2 life wont do too much so id put in Nantuko Husk or Corpse Blockade for more sac outlets.

i feel like your decks a little confused at the moment about whether it wants to attack or not. are you trying to have some good zombie aggro or are you trying to just hold down the fort and drain life with Gempalm Polluter and Shepherd of Rot
