Urgoros, the Empty One Discussion

My third color for this would definitely be blue, that gives you access to Drowned Catacomb, Watery Grave, Steam Vents and Sulfur Falls, which will actually improve your mana base. It also allows you to play 3 Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip at your four drop in place of 3 Raiders' Wake. Moment of Craving is going to allow you to live long enough to set up your value inevitability against mono red, so I would think about going to 2 on Shock and put two more in the side board instead of Urgoros, the Empty One. This next one hurts me to say, since Fell Specter is one of my favorite cards, but you will definitely get more value out of Chemister's Insight, drawing cards is essential for you and being able to ditch a land late for two more cards is great. Also, with blue you get access to a couple of counter spells, which is fantastic against all the etb abilities on creatures right now. I would think about running two Syncopates in place of Liliana's Spoils which will help your curve as well, and go for 2 Essence Scatters and 2 Lava Coils (Now that I'm saying it, Shock and Lightning Strike would probably be out for me) so cards like Rekindling Phoenix, Arclight Phoenix, or either izzet drake can't trade for more than one card. Finally, you will have to make a choice on whether you want to get more aggressive, or more control. I would lean more toward control, as the value in this deck is difficult to overcome late game. If, however, you decide you would rather get an early advantage, simply swap the two Essence Scatter and Lava Coil for 4 Thief of Sanity. If he is not killed, he will win you the game simple as that (if he were a 2/3 I would be way more inclined to play him, but there's just too much out there to kill him for me). Anyway, didn't mean to write a book, but these are the changes I would make and why! If you like them let me know, and if you don't, then feel free to tell me that too and have fun playing with a fun deck!

Can I suggestDiscovery / Dispersal, and Urgoros, the Empty One. The discovery lets you set up early draws and then dispersal works later when you need to get something off the board that landed and then maybe even discarded. Urgoros will give you a little heavier presence than the 1/1 rats and if he keeps landing, you are taking out a card each turn.

You want a deck that will remove the opponents deck while it controls what they’re doing and steadily building a zombie swarm?

A couple important red zombies will be Neheb, the Eternal and Wildfire Eternal. You could play Sedris, the Traitor King to bring stuff back on the cheap, and even Liliana's Reaver, Siren of the Silent Song, Order of Yawgmoth, and Slavering Nulls. All these guys getting through will be made easier if you have Zombie Master and Graf Harvest too. Undead Alchemist can make more zombies while they eat all the brains too...

Urgoros, the Empty One seems to do a useful thing, and there are a lot of specters from Blizzard Specter and Blazing Specter to Sedraxis Specter, Liliana's Specter and Hypnotic Specter.

Then you can play planeswalkers like Liliana, Death's Majesty to reanimate stuff repeatedly and the one Bolas does it too. Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Sepulchral Primordial and Diluvian Primordial are all good, and even Molten Primordial can be if you have a way to sacrifice the stuff you steal like Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Carrion Feeder or Corpse Harvester.

Okay, foxx2487 then I'd suggest you add some Divests to go along with your Duresses, once it goes Standard in October, I'd use Never Happened to replace your Lost Legacies. I'd also mainboard your Raiders' Wake and drop the Vampire Neonates for more Vicious Conquistadors. Bloodcrazed Paladin would be a good addition for board wipes. Cast Down will likely serve you better than Murder and I concur that you should invest in more Vraska's Contempt. Urgoros, the Empty One would be a better alternative to Vampire Sovereign even though it cost more. I believe Ruin Raider replacing Skymarch Bloodletter would give you more of a reason to have a Reliquary Tower.

Temple of Malice, Zhalfirin Void and Fill with Fright for a little more Scry to control whats on the bottom of your library.

Urgoros, the Empty One, Banshee of the Dread Choir and Hypnotic Specter.

If your meta has too much card draw try Black Vise. Its hilarious if you get if on turn one.

You got an Ajani foil promo? That's luck right there. I would take out Eviscerate, Gideon's Reproach and Cast Down and replace them with Murder (and put Cast Down on the sideboard to sideboard in when you see a deck without legendary creatures). If you are focusing on having a lot of legendary creatures in this deck, then I would add 2 more of Benalish Honor Guard, as that thing can be scary with a ton of legendary creatures on the battlefield. I don't really think that Cabal Paladin is really that good, so I would take that out if I were you. I would also take out Urgoros, the Empty One (a 4/3 for 6 mana doesn't sound to good, and his ability is meh). Arvad the Cursed is really good in this deck, but I would only have 2 of him in here because you don't want 2 of the same legendary in your hand. Zhalfirin Void should be taken out as you are not running a colorless mana deck. Cabal Stronghold is a little slow for me, but you can keep it in there if you want to. Angel of the Dawn doesn't seem the best as you have to spend 5 mana (which, most of the time, means you can only play that creature) just for a +1/+1 until end of turn. Divest is a good card, but I really think it would be more disappointing to have that be drawn then maybe another knight card in your deck (plus this deck has to get down to 60 cards anyways). I would also get rid of Forsaken Sanctuary for more Isolated Chapel.

TL;DR: Remove: 2 Eviscerate, 1 Cast Down, 1 Urgoros, the Empty One, 1 Arvad the Cursed, 2 Zhalfirin Void, 1 Angel of the Dawn, 1 Cabal Stronghold 1 Divest, 2 Forsaken Sanctuary Add: 4 Murder, 2 Benalish Honor Guard, 2 Isolated Chapel Add (to sideboard): 2-4 Cast Down

Again this is just my recommendation. If you find that some of the cards you are playing with that you feel down have a big enough impact to help you win, then you should take those cards out and add in either a multiple of a card that you know is good in your deck, or try an entirely new card. Sorry that this is long, but I wanted to explain my reasoning for each suggestion. Nice deck you have here (giving it a +1) and good luck at FNM!
