Zombie Infestation or Rotting Rats + Prized Amalgam is also a nice combo

Gravecrawler

Diregraf Captain

Undead Warchief

Looks like a good start, here are couple suggestions

Lords: Although the term is a bit outdated, lords refer to a creature that buffs all your other creatures of its creature type like Diregraf Captain. Fortunately for you, zombies have several lords in modern including Undead Warchief, Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, and Death Baron. Some of them are a bit pricey but figured i'd mention them as options if it's a direction you wanted to move in.

Here are other cards that aren't lords but go great in zombie decks:

Gisa and Geralf, Diregraf Colossus, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Relentless Dead

just going to go ahead and list some zombies, some of them are budget friendly some of them are... well:

Gravecrawler

Relentless Dead

Undead Warchief

Lord of the Undead

Death Baron

Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Geralf's Messenger

Diregraf Ghoul

Graf Harvest

Endless Ranks of the Dead

Nameless Inversion (technically a zombie, plus its a great card so yeah)

hope this helps!

hi there,
nice build +1.
Quick question i am trying a build that is 100% recursive (Haakon, Stromgald Scourge+Ashes of the Fallen(brings back all zombies)) but i only have room for a playset of zombie lords.
Which you think is the best?
Gravecrawler dont like the no-block thingy.
Undead Warchief could make recursion insane.
Lord of the Undead can get like 5-6 on recursion.
Diregraf Colossus can get insane but not sure its worth having like 10/10 and 5-6x 2/2 tokens.

Anyways let's talk about the deck a bit. I think it's a pretty good start.

Couple points i want to mention briefly

Lords: Although the term is a bit outdated, lords refer to a creature that buffs all your other creatures of its creature type like Diregraf Captain. Fortunately for you, zombies have several lords in modern including Undead Warchief, Cemetery Reaper, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, and Death Baron. Some of them are a bit pricey but figured i'd mention them as options if it's a direction you wanted to move in.

Here are other cards that aren't lords but go great in zombie decks:

Gisa and Geralf, Diregraf Colossus, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Relentless Dead

Consistency: A lot of the cards in the deck are 1-ofs. This means the deck might be a bit more unreliable. Since you're just starting out and don't have as many cards dont worry about it but as you pick up more, ask yourself what cards you would want to have in your hand most often and add extra copies of them to the deck. (the one caveat to this is to be careful with legends, planeswalkers and high mana cost cards so they don't end up stranded in your hand).

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!
