You play the deck as though the horde deck has infinite mana, here is my group's zombie horde deck: Zombie horde deck. Due to this, cards life Graf Harvest are still pretty strong and effects from cards like Propaganda don't really do much. For my playgroup, we have house ruled that cards form the horde deck cannot be flashbacked if a non-token card from the horde's deck has been played (ie. a horde card was counterspelled or there is no more horde deck.) This is mostly put in place because a first turn Army of the Damned into turn two Undead Warchief absolutely sucked to play against without a boardwipe to answer and we felt as a group that counterspells were too strong in this format.

I took the advice and threw Undead Warchief back in along with Wonder because why not big flying zombies!

Endless Ranks of the Dead, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Rooftop Storm, Gisa and Geralf are just a few ideas. There are lots of very good zombie cards. Death Baron is a good lord, so is Undead Warchief

I just took the Undead Warchief out for Grave Pact. I feel with Altar of Dementia, Grave Pact would be a better fit considering hoard.

One thing I'm a bit concerned about is that you don't have as many creatures as I would expect to find in this deck, consider finding a spot for Wonder because flying zombies are fun and you're missing the best zombie lord (in my opinion) - Undead Warchief

I might recommend Ashnod's Altar also, it pairs very very well with Havengul Lich and Rooftop Storm which you already have in here

Undead Warchief is actuall a 4 mana 3/2 when you take into account his ability hits himself. Note that it does not say "other zombies"

So at 4 mana he is actually pretty good. Pumps your dudes (including himself) and makes your other dudes cheaper to cast.

If your goal is build huge amounts of zombies, I would highly recommend Endless Ranks of the Dead since that creates an ever increasing amount of zombies to go with. Plus maybe some tribal style guys like Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and of the best 1 drop zombie ever Gravecrawler who can keep coming and only be permanently removed by exile. Relentless Dead is also a pretty powerful zombie for 2 mana. Undead Warchief, Unbreathing Horde are some good zombies worth looking at. If I were you, to zombies and making a zombie horde effective, I would focus more on the zombie cards specifically rather than cards that help swarm with whatever. House got some cards there for the draw but Cryptbreaker owns the field on drawing a stupid amount of cards once a zombie horde starts going and has won tournaments because of his draw and discard effects. But if you really need some good draw cards, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, and Altar's Reap are the best fast paced draws. Hope all of this helps! Cheers!
