Vile Rebirth Discussion

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:
- Songs of the Damned and Caravan Vigil for ramp
- Soulshriek to help with your Rite of Consumption plan
- Nimble Mongoose will be amazing with quick threshold
- Vile Rebirth and Shamble Back to fuel your sac outlets in black
- Chatter of the Squirrel and Scatter the Seeds and Night Soil to fuel sac in green
- Ghastly Demise for cheap, efficient removal
- Blossoming Wreath and Pulse of Murasa to stall aggro
- Dregscape Zombie and Rotting Rats because this deck could break Unearth
Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

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

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:
- 4x Quest for the Nihil Stone
- 4x Vile Rebirth
- 2x Sign in Blood
- 1x Death Baron
- 1x Lord of the Accursed
- 1x Swamp

"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.

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.
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.

With only 3 blue mana symbols in your entire deck, you're better off finding something else that can fulfill a similar purpose using black mana. I would recommend some Zombie Anthems like Cemetery Reaper, Death Baron, Lord of the Accursed, or big zombies like Diregraf Colossus. Vile Rebirth and Shamble Back are good ways to get creatures out cheap, because right now you only have 3 creatures below 3 CMC.

I don't know how competitive/expensive you want to get, but whenever I see a tribal deck, I think Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial are good choices. Other notables, (depending on what rout you want to go):
Vile Rebirth: Instant speed dudes just seems good. Plus it can interrupt graveyard interaction with creatures.
Blood Scrivener if you feel like you're top decking a little too much
Lord of the Undead for recursion
Geralf's Messenger for annoyance
Diregraf Ghoul for aggro
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to ensure you have that black mana (especially if you go with Geralf's)
Fetches/Shocks(?) to thin out the deck
All in all, seems like it could be annoying!

I like the addition of Gurmag Angler, and the additional discard, my only issue is that (from my own experience) it can be hard to keep enough zombies in play to trigger ranks ... let alone +/- 12 zombies in the deck.
Binding Mummy has potential, but i can see why you removed it, needs more instant speed zombies to really be a "control" card (like Necromancer's Stockpile/Vile Rebirth/Relentless Dead/Zombie Infestation etc) and those cards probably arnt worth it.
do you have plans for a sideboard yet? Stony Silence is solid against tron/affinity/lantern, Surgical Extraction/Extirpate is almost required against some decks (especially if your helping them discard)
