Well, to be honest, from the looks of your deck now, I see more of a zombie tokens deck, splashed with removal. It's not a bad deck, actually. It's pretty fast, and can flood the board with 2/2s REAL quick. I feel like you could make a pretty good zombies deck. Blood Scrivener is a must if you're going to be emptying your hand relatively fast. So maybe 2 or 3 copies of him? Lifebane Zombie is good, but it fits better in the sideboard until you go against those green or white decks. Liliana's Reaver is a really good 4 drop, especially if your going for the zombie tokens. More copies of him would be good. Xathrid Necromancer is a really solid 3 drop. More copies of him. Keep maybe a 1 of Soul of Innistrad? A one of In Garruk's Wake. Then maybe a 3 of Ultimate Price and a 2 of Hero's Downfall? Use 2 copies of Empty the Pits. Then some reanimation spells like Ghoulcaller's Chant, Ritual of the Returned, and Fated Return. If you need any more help, just hit me up! I'm welcome to make suggestions.

How has Soul of Innistrad been performing for you? I've always found it to be bit underwhelming personally.

I'm a huge fan of Soul of Innistrad in Sidisi decks. It's a massive, deathtouching beater that is immesively powerful while in play and super relevant if milled into the yard. It usually was the best card in the old Sidisi Whip decks in Standard and I'm just a fan of the card overall.

Replaced Noxious Gearhulk in favor of Soul of Innistrad as a means for creature reanimation, and Iona's Judgment replaced Zombie Apocalypse for an additional means to exile a problem creature or enchantment.

To start, for your first deck you've made this is pretty decent. Personally, I would replace 2 Ghoultree with 2 more Mindwrack Demon. Also, try using a playset of Grim Flayer instead of 2 Kessig Cagebreakers and 2 Nyx Weaver. Run one more Satyr Wayfinder and one more Gnarlwood Dryad over Soul of Innistrad. Also, what about Mulch or Grisly Salvage instead of Grapple with the Past. To add these I'd remove Gather the Pack and Grapple with the Past.

My suggestions:

Creatures i would remove:

Agent of Masks Its a little meh for 5 mana

Banshee of the Dread Choir My 6th sense tells me to remove

Cliffhaven Vampire Okay ish if you want it but there are better ways to make them die

Coffin Queen It exiles them D::::: I want them to die, come back, repeat, good for utilizing the opponents graveyard, though

Chainer, Dementia Master Just my personal preference, since me and my playgroup hates all old looking cards

Defiant Bloodlord Good but only for endgame

Drana's Emissary They will target you very quickly when it comes into play, i tent to wait until i can crush them with one move

Filth Very situational, also old looking

Grim Haruspex Because Harvester of Souls

Herald of the Host If it only had Lifelink...

Karmic Guide Can not sacrifice it D;;;;

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip Everyone will almost always kill it on sight

Necrotic Sliver Ayli's exile is better imho

Sangromancer laifu when waifu puts them into exile

Sunblast Angel If it only had flash...

Sunscorch Regent That guy has a million tokens but... HE HAS A DRAGON!!! KILL HIM! Murder flies everywhere

Suture Priest Makes a lot of hate, otherwise nice

Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts cost's too much and.... Can't sacrifice!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Darth Vader voice

Yosei, the Morning Star DRAGON!!!!! KILL HIM! Token guy smiles while he is going to kill them fools because they spent all their Murders on the Dragons

Creatures i would add:

Soul of Innistrad because getting 3 creatures back is funny. ABUSE THE HECK OUT OF IT! KILL THEM ALLLLLLL

Nether Traitor Sacrifice it to exile something, sacrifice something else, get it back, repeat. ABUSEEEE IIIIIITTTT

Grand Abolisher Gets rid of those pesky Counter spells

Emeria Shepherd Land for Creature, if its a plains, to the battlefield. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO costs a lot so its up to you

Avatar of Woe Kills things and is cheap in endgame. Oh what's that Emrakul, the Promised End? Yeah, thought so

Artifact's i would remove:

Blade of Selves Naturalize

Everflowing Chalice One mana for each 2 you paid? D:

Expedition Map 2-coloured deck shouldn't need much ramp, could use for a Vault of the Archangel though

Hedron Archive 2 mana is good but you can use Underworld Connections + Alhammarret's Archive

Mind Stone You get one mana and a card? umm naaah

Nim Deathmantle Have to save that 4 mana always, meaning you won't be playing a lot of spells

Orzhov Signet If you have too many cards and have to remove some from the deck

Pristine Talisman Same as the one before this

Scythe of the Wretched They will never block it but if they do, they will with a small creature :/

Specter's Shroud +1/+0 and Discard? Could work but imho i don't like it

Sword of Feast and Famine 15$ D;;; otherwise okay but you cant sacrifice the equipped creature

Sword of Light and Shadow 32$ O_O Remove if you are on Budget.

Sword of the Animist I'm sure you can get enough lands without

Viridian Longbow Haha no.

Artifact's I would add:


Enchantment's I would Remove:

Animate Dead Can only use once

Blind Obedience There is something better you can replace this with

Creeping Dread My hand is gone... nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond Ruins fun games imho. also, of the two Sanguine Bond is better

Grasp of Fate If it leaves they will get back

Necropotence 6th Sense

One Thousand Lashes Why not exile them instead?

Phyrexian Arena Underworld Connections Replaces it, since I want to control when I draw and lose life

Tainted Remedy but... Erebos, God of the Dead Place your trust in the God of the Dead!

Test of Endurance Old and you have Felidar Sovereign

Enchantment's I would add:

Dictate of Erebos Because them losing stuff is fun.

Grave Pact Because can't trust getting Dictate of Erebos or Martyr's Bond from 100 cards in 1 game

Proper Burial Double life if you sack it for life? YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Underworld Connections Card draw when you want it

Instant's I would Remove:

Anguished Unmaking Because Mortify better imho

Disenchant You can exile whenever you want with Ayli

Rebuff the Wicked Not really sure... just doesn't feel right

Sudden Spoiling Hahaa they're all 0:2 now... oh wait they're in exile...darn

Utter End Exile with Ayli! Trust her Eldrazi praising azz on exiling

Wing Shards Ehehe if he attacks now he'll regret it... 8 hours later Wonder if he can attack from exile....
