bradtheimpaler13, thanks for the view and notes..

I cut Glint-Horn Buccaneer early on, cause his secondary only triggers on attack, so not as good as you would think with a 2/4...

I do like Syr Konrad, the Grim though, the one ability that i didnt notice prior was "or leaves the graveyard"... this would be great with Sanitarium Skeleton , Squee, Goblin Nabob , and Veilborn Ghoul ... Madness cards dont actually hit grave, but there is enough ways to get my opponents to discard that this might work out nicely. Will have to find a spot for him.

Interesting build. You might like Skullclamp as another way to dispose of your various Ball Lightnings if Greven can't stay in play. Veilborn Ghoul is another interesting option, as he not only has a useful 4/1 body, but he can return himself to your hand for free every now and then - though I suppose you're a little low on swamps for it to be too reliable.

And yes, it's kind of a jank pick, but this is also basically the perfect home for Blood Lust . Maximize your gains and minimize your losses! Chariot of the Sun can likewise help reduce your life loss from any fatties you might pitch, but to be fair most of your critters have 1 toughness as it is.

Thanks for the suggestion, Veilborn Ghoul seems good as squee 5-8

You could add some Veilborn Ghoul and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to get more value out of infestation.

If you wanted "more" copies of Squee, look no further than Veilborn Ghoul. Another card you don't intend to play, so long as you hit your land drops then you can return him from your graveyard to your hand every turn. That should really give the discard outlets something to work with.

I see very little ramp, but kind of a return from grabeyard back to hand theme here. Maybe you could replace some high mana cards with Zombie Infestation and Veilborn Ghoul to be a little faster with flooding the board with zombies.

other/additional considerations

Necromancer's Stockpile, Veilborn Ghoul, Oversold Cemetery, Undead Gladiator, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Corpse Harvester, Shepherd of Rot, Vengeful Dead ...
