I build this deck just to play with some friends with a limit of price that we set in the beginning.This deck is for hold down and drain life as you said, but you can do some damage too using Vengeful Dead and Nausea. (The point that I'm trying to do is to damage all players in a row).

Expedition Map is the best land tutor available to you. Scourge of Nel Toth is a great flying zombie, and he seems great to recur for cheap and sac to gisa every turn too. I like Curse of Shallow Graves and Ascendant Evincar a lot in my zombie deck. Just making sure you noticed the infinite combo you run too, Phyrexian Altar, Gravecrawler, & Vengeful Dead. I've seen some zombie lists more focused on achieving that combo. I don't have an altar or i would run it. Heres a link to mine check it out..

Vengeful Dead is another combo piece in rooftop storm in case your Captain goes.

Thanks KroggandMohawk for checking it out and for the upvote!

Goblins-turned-zombies, well, I am still working out the optimal uses for their dual citizenship, but cards like Vengeful Dead could really come in big, especially if the goblin swarm finds one of its sac outlets like Skirk Prospector. Also, Zombies in general are harder to keep down, so I may try to add more recursion/attrition type mechanics. I will likely be tweaking this deck here and there as I figure out what works best, and I am glad you like the concept!

I would suggest the following extra cards:

Aim for at leist 35 lands I would suggest for now.

All options I posted are budget options. The more expensive cards I left ut for now.

Good luck!

Hi MegaMatt13 thanks for all suggestions. I saw your deck and i like it, but my version is a little different than yours, because i'm not concentrate in massive survival, i want to prefer take more value of my cards casting with Gisa and Geralf when zombies have already died or they were descarted.

I tried Fact or Fiction, but I prefer Frantic Search because it's more tempo in my game.sometimes I had Fact or Fiction in my hand and i prefered play another zombie or cast something from my graveyard.

I have got buy Monastery Siege and test it.

Vengeful Dead I tested him but i didn't like because I considerer him poor in stats.

And finally i didn't prefer blue zombies because i can take value with Balthor the Defiled , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Crypt of Agadeem.

Sorry about my english, currently i'm learning.

I hope you can understand me.

Nice deck :)

I'd suggest more cards similar to Frantic Search that will filter through your deck and dump zombies into your graveyard.

Fact or Fiction, Monastery Siege, Forbidden Alchemy, Fortune's Favor, and Epiphany at the Drownyard all work great in my version. Perpetual Timepiece is also great and filling the graveyard.

Other great zombies: Vengeful Dead, Armored Skaab, Laboratory Brute, Geralf's Mindcrusher

Hope this helps!
