Add Samut, the Tested for flavour. She and Captain Sisay are best friends as they find each other.

Samut's ultimate can also find Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Village Bell-Ringer to end games. If the Bell-Ringer is too bad, add: Eager Beaver (if silver-borders); or Great Oak Guardian; or Sparring Mummy; or tried-and-true Zealous Conscripts.

I love the deck and the theme.. ZOMBIES!!!

However, I feel as if some cards that I found are quite sub-par like Sparring Mummy and maybe even the Cursed Minotaur have crept themselves into the deck leaving the great cards like Wayward Servant and Lord of the Accursed feeling left out (you only have 2 copies of each).

I would recommend taking out the two Sparring Mummys for 2 more Wayward Servant and the 2 Cursed Minotaur for 2 more Lord of the Accursed.

Also, I feel like your deck has pretty low mana costs as a whole (your average CMC is 2.83), so I would recommend taking out maybe 1 or 2 for maybe some Liliana's Mastery - I personally love this card :)

Dread Wanderer is a very strong card. I would replace the 4 Khenra Eternal's for 4 of those guys. I just think they are much better.

See how that runs.

Other cards you might want to take a closer look at are:

Binding Mummy - the tap is very nice.

Fatal Push - LIKE THE BEST BLACK REMOVAL <3. These are quite pricey, however, so maybe even Never / Return.

More Ammit Eternals - I think they are quite sweet.

Also, maybe check out if there is some card draw, but otherwise +1!

You could try putting Gideon, Martial Paragon in the deck. His +2 ability untaps all creatures you control and gives them +1/+1 until end of turn. Sparring Mummy is also great for untapping creatures mid-late game. If you decide to add Gideon, Martial Paragon to the deck, you should consider adding Gideon's Resolve to search for him and give your creatures +1/+1. I run a R/W exert burn deck that is similar to this. If you want more ideas, suggestions or help with anything MTG related just msg me and I'll see if I can help. Here's a link to my R/W Exert/untap/burn deck -

Ok, so i made these changes:

3 Thalia, Heretic Cathar for 3 Companion of the Trials.

2x Gideon's Resolve and Hazoret's Favor for 3x Always Watching .

2x Hyena Pack in favor of 2x Trueheart Twins.

2x Solemn Recruit for 2x Sparring Mummy.

With these changes, I'm on 17 W 16 R.

Now, i'm not sure i need the cartouche + trials or the Shock. I have considered just taking them all out for Insult / Injury and more creatures.

I haven't been able to play with the deck since the changes, but today i will. After that, i think i will be able to do more tinkering and i will update the decklist.

Damn! All your suggestions sound really good. Thanks for taking the time.

So, i visited my shop today and i managed to get these:

3x Inspiring Vantage

3x Always Watching

3x Thalia, Heretic Cathar (thought it could be a pretty nice beater for the deck, plus i found them really cheap)

1x Insult / Injury

2x Solemn Recruit

2x Trueheart Twins

1x Ahn-Crop Crasher

2x Lone Rider

1x Trial of Solidarity

I might not have a use for all the creatures but I wanted to experiment with different possible combinations.

Now, I think Thalia, Heretic Cathar is a great replacement for Companion of the Trials.

Im thinking 2x Gideon's Resolve and Hazoret's Favor for 3x Always Watching .

Insult / Injury for Trial of Zeal. Maybe Trial of Solidarity could be better than another Trial of Zeal.

2x Hyena Pack in favor of 2xTrueheart Twins.

2x Solemn Recruit for 2x Sparring Mummy.

What do you think?

Hyena Pack, Sparring Mummy, Companion of the Trials, Pathmaker Initiate, and Gideon's Resolve should be the first cards you replace for better cards as they are really just trash in standard
