- midrange-y goodness (Grave Titan, Avenger of Zendikar, Craterhoof Behemoth, Lord of Extinction)
- a Necrotic Ooze combo (Walking Ballista, Phyrexian Devourer, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed/Triskelion)
- dredge package (Golgari Grave-Troll, Stinkweed Imp, Life from the Loam)
- table drain (Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Exquisite Blood, Massacre Wurm)
- attrition package (Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Desolation)
- creature based targetted removal (Reclamation Sage, Caustic Caterpillar, Woodfall Primus)
- stax package (Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Contamination, Null Rod)
- tutor package (Buried Alive, Birthing Pod, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Sidisi, Undead Vizier)
- better sac outlets (Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Viscera Seer, Greater Good)

Here's my question. Except through surprise factor, how do you ensure maralen survives to tutor for Bitterblossom? Your opponents can tutor for removal on their turn after you play it, which seems like the smart thing to do as they should suspect combo from a commander that tutors. So are there built in ways to avoid that? Or do you just have to tutor for the combo pieces separately if that happens? Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a lot slower but doesn't let your opponents tutor, so he could be an alternate commander if you can't solve that problem. Just my, admittedly stolen as someone else pointed the same thing out to me for a different deck, two cents.

Also, gotta admit, I had originally shamelessly stolen your idea with the excuse of giving you credit to make my own changes. Now the reason I tell you this is because someone brought up a very good point about the commander. Any opponent aware of the combo will on their turn after you play Maralen, tutor for removal and get rid of it or get a combo piece and win the game. He suggested Sidisi, Undead Vizier as an alternate, which is admittedly slightly slower without other cards to play him faster, but can immediately exploit himself to tutor for Ad Nauseam without showing the card to your opponents and without letting them tutor for disruption.

Gimmick high land decks will always be the cheapest decks around, but Maralen of the Mornsong is a terrible option.
Unless your opponents are mentally handicapped, they just tutor for a removal spell and kill Maralen, or their own combo piece and win. The deck does nothing, because it GIVES the solution to your opponents.
If you insist on trying this deck out, swap the commander with Sidisi, Undead Vizier. It will slow you down one additional turn, but it won't serve your own head on a silver platter with Maralen's terrible ability.
Edit: Hell, add one Dark Ritual to the decklist and the combo will actually be the same speed as the one you posted. You can cast Sidisi on turn 5, then on turn 6 you Ad Nauseam your entire deck, draw Dark Ritual, and use those 3 mana to win.

Because Diregraf Colossus triggers on cast you definitely get the zombie token before Sidisi, Undead Vizier resolves. If they both triggered on the creature entering rather than being cast you would get to stack the triggers in either order, so you could stack them such that you got the token before sacrificing a creature anyways.

Unsure of whether this token would trigger before Sidisi, Undead Vizier reaches the battlefield (allowing exploit to occur). I would think it does because of the way Diregraf Colossus is phrased. Utilizing the word "cast" instead of it being a triggered ETB effect. Clarification of ruling and my general understanding greatly appreciated.

I'm sure you have your own reasoning, but generally most people would take out Corpse Blockade for Geralf's Messenger, though your deserts would make it harder to cast, if i were to do a zombie deck for myself, it would be Black Devotion with Nytkthos, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and the warchief. But I like the mummy-desert feel yours has.

I play Savra, Queen of the Golgari as my general, but she can be pretty powerful in the 99 as well.
