Tragic Slip Discussion

Hard to say since there's a lot of synergy in your deck and honestly it depends on your meta, Stromgald Crusader seems pretty mana intensive for what he does. Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton interrupt the zombie recurrence theme going on, cards like Diregraf Colossus don't benefit them being in the graveyard.

Blood Scrivener is a debatable one, while at low CMC and added card draw it depends how often you have 0 cards in hand, other than that I couldn't tell you what creatures to cut.

This is where your meta comes into play, personally I would cut most target removal, in a 4 player free for all if you 1-for-1 with an opponent your other 2 opponents are now up a card(however can save you from infinite combos and such) so it's a tough call to make. That being said I would cut Tragic Slip since you can't control morbid on other peoples turns and maybe Slaughter Pact depending on how often you verse other black decks.

Sign in Blood is another card I would consider cutting and replacing with a more repeatable draw engine like Necropotence or Dark Prophecy or at least replace with Read the Bones.

Other than that I couldn't recommend anything else to cut your deck seems solid to me.

Edit: here are some other cards I found that go well with your decks synergy:

Cryptbreaker card draw

Call to the Grave control

Dictate of Erebos control

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip If you add any lily planeswalkers be careful not to run too many since you can't have more than one in the battlefield at a time.

Potential yet high CMC sweepers

Decree of Pain

Plague Wind

Hellfire

In Garruk's Wake

Life's Finale

In place of Mutilate I would run Damnation but it's much more expensive.

Its great to see a budget version of this deck.

If you're running Funeral Charm purely for removal I would drop it in favour of Tragic Slip as it pairs with Augur of Skulls quite well.

I would consider Grasp of Darkness over Victim of the night, but this is dependent on your meta, if many people are playing Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip in your meta or Gravecrawlers it could be worth it.

Sideboard tech -

Lost Legacy can deal with Ancient Grudge or any enchantment/artifact hate you see

Liliana's Specter helps your win condition and defends against flyers, can be handy against any deck running Lingering Souls

I will give you the tips I am always gave.

---First of all: correct your mana-curve! In the right of this page have a graphic that show you your mana-curve. Your mana-curve don't looks like a curve, yeah?

How do you make this? Simple. Put things you can get time and game advantage with low mana cost. I am a big fan of cheap deck, so i will try indicate cheap cards.

A good deck have at least 8 removal cards, this cards may be really versatil like Murder or more restricted like Smother, a great removal that support early creatureless game in single or multiplayer games is Innocent Blood (now is very cheap). From the white side, you have 2 excellent removals for everything Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light. If you what spend more money you can also use Anguished Unmaking.

Your deck don't have draw, which makes it slow. Draw engine are always necessary. Can be constant like Phyrexian Arena ($$$) or Staff of Nin, or can be recursive like Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper (ideal for this deck). One of the most important things about low mana cost draws is to always have a land to play in all of your turns.

---Secound: You need create a deck more consistant, 4x or 3x of each card, 2x only for utility cards like Ob Nixilis Reignited or great mana cost like Resolute Archangel. That way you will create a focus on your deck and more efficience too.

---Third: Make a more synergy deck, with one card contributing to another. You gain alot of life maybe you can make Angelic Accord or Well of Lost Dreams works. If you have token generator (Moonsilver Spear, Captain's Claws, Lingering Souls, etc) you can use morbid of Reaper from the Abyss better and also can use Tragic Slip who is a wonderful low mana cost removal.

With this tips you can make any deck with not much trouble.

Obs.: the ideas of mana ramping like Sol Ring is nice, but so unfair, because this card is banned for all formats (except vintage) for a reason. You can use this strategy easily, but you probably never will learn how make a solid deck without non-sense banned cards like Sol Ring.

ghoul_Legion thanks for your tips. I did the alterations that you suggested. So I changed Tragic Slip for Fatal Push. It's more expensive but it worths it. Maybe use 2x Quickling to help on Fatal Push's effect?

Fatal Push could operate much like a Tragic Slip. With the amount of zombies in the deck, you could almost be able to run a couple Relentless Dead's. Nice deck!

Go for the Throat instead of doom blade

Modern is pretty much a turn 4 win format, so expensive mana cost cards that doesn't win you games are not awesome.

I would suggest to stay away from Oona, Queen of the Fae, I have a faerie deck and it never served me any purpose other than get killed or being a dead draw.

Concentrate is on the expensive side for a 4 CMC card. I would also consider Foresee to be much better in most cases.

Tragic Slip is a hit or miss and I would consider something more reliable because you can't have a creature die anytime you want to.

Faerie Miscreant is pretty good as 4x of.

Faeries are really weak and are more reliable with alot of control in the long run, so I would prefer more control over Favorable Winds.

-1 Oona's Blackguard + 1 Spellstutter Sprite

Thats what I think for now

Possibly Stab Wound for Sinister Possession. I know it's two CMC higher but it either kills a 2 toughness creature or forces them to take 2 every turn unlike Sinister Possession. If they sac the Stabbed creature then it activates Morbid for Tragic Slip.
