Yeah, K'rrik is a great addition to this deck pre-Lich state, but I would definitely need to add his buddies Vilis, Broker of Blood and Pestilence Demon with lifelink. K'rrik really does deserve his own deck with the number of life payment shenanigans he can get into.

I should take this time to mention that I am currently rebuilding this deck to be a more creature focused deck, swapping out some of the combos with zombies and zombie token producers. Some of the god mode combos will stay in, at least one or both liches will stay in, but it will be bolstered by a legion of zombies ( Endless Ranks of the Dead , Unbreathing Horde , Shepherd of Rot ), cards that interact with Varina a little bit more ( Bone Miser ), and cards that helps the deck more with draw ( Bolas's Citadel , Liliana, Dreadhorde General ). Still has a lot of testing to do, but everyone who's interested in a less combo heavy version of this deck will be in for a treat pretty soon.

Things to remove and why:

Worry Beads - too slow Endless ranks of the dead- dead if you don't have other zombies out

From Under the Floorboards - no way to activate madness which is what makes it good

Unbreathing Horde - you can keep if you want, but it only helps if you self mill and you just don't have that many creatures

Ashnod's Altar - you don't consistently have enough creatures to feed it, instead use a land slot or something and get a Phyrexian Tower

Dark Salvation - keep it only if you can fix your mana generation issues. If you can consistently get 10+ mana a game then keep it.

Exsanguinate - it's just a worse Torment of hailfire, and again you don't generate 20+ mana consistently.

Butcher of Malakir - Costs too much mana, and when you need to wipe the board you have boardwipes to do that anyways.

Things to add:

Codex Shredder

Unwinding Clock

Embalmer's Tools

Altar of Dementia swap that one out for Ashnod's, it's better in this deck

Grindclock , it's slow but it gets a lot better with Unwinding clock, and if you can land it early it'll do some serious work over the course of a game.

Helm of Obedience is a pricey card but definitely would do work here

Millstone if you took that one out

Phyrexian Arena // Necropotence to keep your hand full

Metroid_Hybrid on Amass seems... lame.

Due to the way they are depicted in the promo video, and the flavor text on the cards with Amass; I can’t help but feel like the Army token was supposed to function more-or-less like the second ability of Unbreathing Horde ..

Of course, we’ve only seen a handful of cards with the Amass keyword on it.. We could very well see some form of quasi-Banding before everything is said & done (not likely, but it’s still fun to speculate about)..

I know the error happens in the "Swaps:" section and below because if I take it out, the deck saves. How do I fix it?

Hello! The first and the main question: what's your budget? Because you need to fix mana base at first: Watery Grave , Drowned Catacomb or Darkslick Shores instead of those dual lands you have. Speaking about creatures: Cryptbreaker is one of my favorite zombies. Card advantage plus madness enabler - and very cheap. Unbreathing Horde isn't bad but Diregraf Colossus is much better. Voldaren Pariah  Flip? Just because its madness cost and transforming effect? I think Grave Titan is better but it's a question of taste (and budget of course). You can also use Fleshbag Marauder + Gisa and Geralf . And what do you think about Endless Ranks of the Dead ? Some words about sideboard: hand disruption - Duress (but Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are much - much! - better), control and discard - Compelling Deterrence (cheap and fun, yes), removal - Vraska's Contempt .

I’m not the biggest fan of Unbreathing Horde either. I guess my thought was, when the Diregraf Colossus is out, every zombie spell you cast is doubled because you get a 2/2 body. And in games where your opponent is going to sweep your bored playing that and then following it up with your other recursive creatures will double the amount of body is you actually get onto the field. And in the event that you have a board stall between you and your opponent, we’re neither of you can attack favorably, that can really tip the numbers in your direction.

Thanks for the feedback, greatly appreciated.

Although i feel like Diregraf Colossus is a strong card, it had the same issues that Unbreathing Horde had. It rarely gets any value early game, and late game its mostly irrelevant. But i might consider sideboarding it in :)
