Undead Alchemist

Creature — Zombie

If a Zombie you control would deal combat damage to a player, instead that player puts that many cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard.

Whenever a creature card is put into an opponent's graveyard from his or her library, exile that card and put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.

Still works to keep all my zombie generals from dying though. Not a big loss. Mainly wanted to use it with Undead Alchemist to attack mercilessly

I'd recommend throwing in an Undead Alchemist. It works great with altar of dementia. Also, since it exiles the creatures, it helps deal with pesky shuffle in creatures like the eldrazi titans.

First I recommend taking out: Havengul Runebinder, Cemetery Recruitment, Undead Alchemist, Nantuko Husk, Geralf's Masterpiece, Geralf's Mindcrusher, Ashes of the Fallen, Perpetual Timepiece, Secrets of the Dead, Ancient Excavation, Murder, Compelling Deterrence, Liliana's Mastery, Obelisk of Urd, Graf Harvest, and Zombie Infestation, Ghoulcaller's Chant,

Cards that you should put in: Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Grave Pact, Unholy Grotto, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Living Death, Cryptbreaker, Death Baron, Phyrexian Reclamation, High Market, Corpse Harvester, Balthor the Defiled, Reassembling Skeleton, Skullclamp, Grave Defiler, Graveborn Muse, Zombie Apocalypse, Crypt of Agadeem, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Reliquary Tower, Bojuka Bog, Diabolic Intent, Patriarch's Bidding, and Demonic Tutor.

Alternate commanders or cards to include in the deck could be: The Scarab God and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born

If you are really trying to stay Timmy with the deck, then I won't recommend Phyrexian Altar because it goes infinite with Gravecrawler and any kind of death/ETB trigger, but then again, it does it with Rooftop Storm and a sac outlet too.

Other cards that can be really good in zombies include: Sheoldred, Whispering One, Corpse Connoisseur, Zombie Trailblazer, Twilight's Call, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Demonic Collusion, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Scourge of Nel Toth, River Kelpie, Phyrexian Arena, Attrition, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Burnished Hart, Disciple of Bolas, Harvester of Souls, Damnation, Rune-Scarred Demon, Phenax, God of Deception, Beacon of Unrest, Corpse Augur, Palace Siege, Infernal Caretaker, Contamination, Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead, Dread Wanderer, Boneknitter, Grimoire of the Dead, Pontiff of Blight, Custodi Lich

Hey guys, back into magic after some devastating events in my private life.

Or playgroup starts growing and I could test the deck (min differs only slightly) some more matches.

Let me say one thing: The deck is feared at the table. The only strategy one guys could stop me with is stealing permanents - DAMN HIM!!

But nevertheless: I took Undead Alchemist out of the deck even though I made 25 tokens with him. But I really dislike that my wincon switches to Death my Mill for as long as I can't remove him. Haven't really decided on the open position, I think I'll go with Damnation

also if you play multiple creatures some great cards are Hedron Crab and Undead Alchemist

Yeah, good call. I'm designing what would be my first modern deck, and was making something similar to what you have here. My list also has/had some mill in it, though (I started with Undead Alchemist as inspiration).I wonder, could a mainboard similar to yours work with a sideboard to transform it into a mill deck?

NV_1980 Thanks for the suggestions! I really like the addition of Bloodchief Ascension. However, I don't think Undead Alchemist quite fits in this deck because it is still an zombie "aggro" deck at heart. Mill is somewhat of a sub-theme and I think Undead Alchemist escalates that theme too much for my liking.

Since you're using zombies and Mindcrank, it could be nice to add Bloodchief Ascension. Ascension is terrible to fight against by itself. Having both on the field however (with three counters on Ascension), basically creates an infinite loop if you ever damage someone.

Undead Alchemist could also be a nice addition (especially since you're also already milling with Phenax, God of Deception). Having Alchemist and Ascension (again, with three counters on it) on the field, will create massive discardation AND lifeloss for your opponent AND lifegain for you whenever your army of zombies attacks.
