Stir the Sands Discussion

What about some Cemetery Reaper or Gisa and Geralf? I sadly need to say that i dont like Stir the Sands because it is so expensive, also if you cycle it its meh in my eyes. Also Rise from the Grave could be swaped with Zombify for a cheaper revive if you want. I hate expensive cards because often you dont have enough mana to play more then one card in a bad situation...

First of all if you want to get competitive keep in mind steadiness of the deck, more copies of the cards you are playing. This doesn't look like a control deck and you are planning to attack with a crap ton of zombies, so the faster you can do that the better. I would take out Gisa and Geralf, Noosegraf Mob and Drunau Corpse Trawler from the creatures, because they are expensive to cast in an aggro deck and Rise from the Tides, Rise from the Grave and Stir the Sands because you are neither throwing things in the trash nor casting a lot instants or sorceries. Your removal is actually well based and Time to Reflect just seems like an over performer in this deck.
Turn Aside seems weird but functional, just take into consideration that mass removals in standard are not targeted, so you may run into troubles.
If you want to get into the competitive scene there's actually not a better thing than to play against other guys and find the common solutions, maybe targeted removal, maybe more creatures, don't build your deck to win against a single deck, that's why sideboard exists.
I would suggest you to add more cheap creatures to keep pressuring your opponents by attacking every turn like Doomed Dissenter.
Anyway, in the end it is your deck, don't hesitate to add cards that you want to play with or build around some cards, it just feels better if you have fun playing your deck with a strategy that you came up with.

black white zombie life drainrun Anointed Procession and Wayward Servant. run it with Liliana's Mastery and Lord of the Accursed, and the big one Stir the Sands. also with Liliana, Death's Majesty. there is also a white card that exiles target creature that was blocking or blocked a zombie this turn for only 1 mana!!! don't forget to run Doomed Dissenter i really think you could make a good deck with all these cards. i will try to make a deck later today.

I recently build a zombie deck around Scarab God, and one thing I found is that having too many high cost cards kills the deck against an aggro deck, especially aggro energy decks. Binding Mummy, Doomed Dissenter, Lord of the Accursed, and Wayward Servant are a really good choice, but I would recommend adding some Fan Bearers and/or Dread Wanderer instead of Lurching Rotbeast for easier combos. If you still want a stronger zombie card I recommend Plague Belcher instead, because its ability can combo with Doomed Dissenter, or sacrifice a zombie to just damage your opponent plus Menace is a nice touch.
Here is my zombie deck, if you want to check it out: Scarab God's Minions

I'm new myself and from the looks of this, you appear to have done what I did at first: throw things together.
Take a look at what I've pieced together and the affect of my deck. Maybe you'll see something you'll like that could boost yours as well?

You don't have much token generation for anointed procession. You might want something like Oketra's Monument and Stir the Sands. Off the top of my head those two will go well with it. Also, consider embalm and eternalize cards. They will copy themselves when you use that ability. the best one is Angel of Sanctions to the best of my knowledge, but there are others you can look up

Looking at this deck I'm kinda assuming you're planning for the next standard rotation since you're not running any card from before kaladesh?
I'd recommend looking into the red/black aftermath cards Cut / Ribbons and Claim / Fame. Ribbons has good synergy with Neheb, and the black portion of Claim / Fame will have good synergy with Metallic Mimic if you can add it in.
In terms of artifacts to add there's an interaction I used in the prerelease, that I'm not yet sure how well it'll work in standard but it is fun you can use Mirage Mirror to clone Liliana's Mastery or Lord of the Accursed to add an additional zombie lord to the field, but the problem is that it'll be a null turn unless you get it out with 5 mana and a zombie lord already on the field.
