So, my suggestions for this deck:
Your primary problem is what you do on the first three or so turns. Right now all of your 1 drops are basically useless to you until the late game. I suggest that you consider:
- Shamble Back (And it's brother Vile Rebirth)
- Cryptbreaker (Will also help you trigger all of your Madness cards)
- Zombie Infestation (Similar to Crypt Breaker, but cheaper mana activation)
You'll also want some ways of drawing cards/dealing with threats. My suggestions:
- Feast or Famine
- Breakthrough (You can cast it for U, draw 4 cards, and activate all your madness)
- Mental Note or Thought Scour
- Careful Study (Or other blue spells that draw/discard large numbers of cards. You can use them to fill up your graveyard with expensive flashbacks that you can activate later)
- Disrupt and other cheap counterspells that can buy you some time.
- Good ole reliable Doom Blade.
I think you should take out some of the enchantments that you have:

Hello, from my experience Endless Ranks of the Dead, although extremely flavorful, does a poor job since it doesn't work when you get board wiped.
I would cut some spells like Syphon Flesh, Shamble Back, Vile Rebirth, Obelisk of Urd and reduce the number of creatures to about 30.
In place of this i think more draws (Brainstorm, Fact or Fiction and things like that), reanimate spells like Animate Dead, Victimize and Exhume to bring your goodies back and tutors like Demonic Tutor. This way you reduce the "dead draws" you may have and have a more concise gameplan.
Since you have red, some cards that gives extra combat phases may help you finish the game quickly.
Hope that helps!
If you can, please take a look at my deck and give me your opinion!

Hey, there. You commented on my G/B Modern Zombies deck and asked me to pop by on your deck.
So I think the stark difference between yours and mine is it seems mine miiight be a little more aggro than yours. There are many games where I turn one Gravecrawler, turn 2 Diregraf Ghoul, and then turn 3 swing for 6 deathtouch with Death Baron. With Gravecrawler as your only 1-drop, I feel that you don't move as fast. Correct assessment?
I'm wondering if splashing blue for just two cards, Prized Amalgam and Negate in the side, could be a little stretch? Prized Amalgam is good, but there's plenty of ways to exile. My G/B was originally B/U until I just knew green was the way to go for removal (not just Abrupt Decay and Maelstrom Pulse, but also the good sideboard options for special removal for circumstances.
Because AEther Vial needs creatures to come from your hand, I wonder if Tracker's Instincts would be a worse choice than Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall. Either of those are great card engines, sacrificing which is not an issue, etc.
I've also felt like Lotleth Troll is better as a 3-of...whenever I played him in my deck, I kinda hated it early because discarding good creatures into the GY without a way to bring them back out right away is a tough call. I really do think you should run Diregraf Colossus. I believe EVERY zombie tribal deck should. He just gives you free bodies.
I like Liliana in here...I just don't own any or she would be in my deck as well, lol.
I think Vile Rebirth in your sideboard could be something a little better against control matches like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek. Disfigure could be Dismember instead? Also...against a lot of fog or prison decks, having some Gray Merchant of Asphodel in the SB has won me many seemingly unwinnable games where I couldn't attack.
Hope this helps you out. I can already see some good U/B options coming out of Eldrich Moon that will also likely help this deck out, too. Exciting stuff!

I have looked at Gravecrawler, and he is one of the cards I would consider adding. Also Vile Rebirth to get some more graveyard movement. I think the whole thing needs to be consolidated more to provide a more consistent play. Gravecrawler would solve the problem I most often have of the deck being slow. Thanks Matt8195
