Hi thanks for the advice. Obviously Shamble Back is a nice card, but in this deck is important to Trigger the Binding Mummy ETB effect as instant to gain some advantage, so Vile Rebirth is totally necessary.

I would replace Vile Rebirth with Shamble Back sure you lose the instant speed but you get to gain a little life.

Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.

Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.

If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:

Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

Been thinking about this brew myself. Some suggestions I have:

Harsh Sustenance

Vile Rebirth

Miasmic Mummy + Murderous Compulsion

Funeral Charm is great for instant speed discard, Wrench Mind is almost a necessity in 8-rack play.

1x Dakmor Salvage is great for Raven's Crime...

I see what you're going for with the zombie thing, but I would stick with just 1 and play 3x or 4x of it

I'd take out:

"This card doubles your ETB triggers and if you have two it quadruples it."

I believe that with two copies in play, ETB abilities are only triple, not quadruple. In my experience, bonuses like this are additive, not multiplicative.

I.E. Parallel Lives gets triggered by Vile Rebirth, you get two zombie tokens. Two copies of Parallel Lives trigger separately as the Rebirth resolve, resulting in three total zombie tokens. Four copies of Parallel Lives and four copies of Anointed Procession would only create nine total zombies from casting a single Vile Rebirth.

Hope this helps.

Ok, lots of cards there. I think for milling creatures, you should go with Hermit Druid, Undercity Informer, and Gisa and Geralf. Altar of Dementia should go in, too.

For recursion like Oversold Cemetery, Meren of Clan Nel Toth will be great. Palace Siege is another good option. Also, Eternal Witness and Regrowth. I don't think Reclaim and Vile Rebirth do enough in here. I see why you have Repopulate, Death Denied, and Gravepurge, but not sure there aren't better cards to go with, like maybe Haunted Crossroads.

I think I'd get rid of cards like Cremate and Dark Dabbling. If you have them there mostly for the cantrip, better card draw engines like Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, and Rhystic Study will serve you better. Sylvan Library would be better for card draw early on. Also, it goes along with the library manipulation I mentioned earlier with cards like Mirri's Guile, Soothsaying, and Sensei's Divining Top.

Rooftop Storm + Altar of Dementia + Gravecrawler give you an infinite win combo if you can get the pieces set and go off. I always like to have some combo like this in a deck if I can work it it. Fatestitcher is a great Zombie to have, too. Intruder Alarm might also provide some combo potential.

To help your mana base out, consider adding lands like City of Brass, Reflecting Pool, and Command Tower, along with Commander's Sphere to smooth the colors you need.

Shambling Ghoul, Slitherhead, and Winged Coatl don't seem to fit with what you want do here, and I think those could be replaced.

I'm not sure the infect theme would fit in with what you want to do here, but that's up to you to decide. I hope this helps some.
