Yes u need 4 Lillys.

LotDR + Urborg doesn't work. Lands are only swamps thanks to Urborg if they're on the battlefield.

Vile Rebirth doesn't have many targets in this deck otherwise it would work.

I think I prefer Phyrexian Arena to Blood Scrivener. I own both so its easy to test out...

Diregraf Ghoul ETB tapped hasn't been too bad of a set back.

I love this guy, Just not in here Diregraf Ghoul. The ''enters tapped'' just kills it for me. Bloodghast + Gravecrawler & Diregraf are "Non-Blocker" (at least when Diregraf enters he is).

what about Vile Rebirth? he is a Zombie Token Gravecrawler, Enters NOT TAPPED, Instant speed creature/Blocker (but I don't think would trigger Vengevine's "2nd creature spell") & works with Thoughtseize (if you Targeted a creature?).

Or other option was Blood Scrivener Again Gravecrawler's need of Zombie's, if you can get your Creature count up Blood Scrivener + Lotleth Troll was fun? and first time I've seen this card Smallpox but, I believe it hits you to for a discard as does Liliana of the Veil's +1. Draws I think you need more of.

Do you need 4x Liliana of the Veil's? even 2 Veils and 2 of Liliana of the Dark Realms might work. Does Liliana of the Dark Realms + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth +1 Ability work together?

Diregraf Ghoul and Tenacious Dead might solve your problem. Also consider Despise for another easy discard, you could even throw in Vile Rebirth to use the discard to generate more zombies. Unbreathing Horde is another three-drop that is tough to remove you might consider.

First of all, the great thing about Necromancer's Stockpile is that it lets you run singletons of Zombies that are strong against specific decks, or in specific situations, without them being a bad draw against other decks or when not in those situations. You can always pitch cards like Anurid Murkdiver, Barrow Ghoul, Carrion Crow, Corpse Blockade, Gangrenous Zombies, Gempalm Polluter, Gutless Ghoul, Rotting Mastodon, Nameless Inversion (it's a zombie even while discarding!), Nantuko Husk, Null Champion, Phyrexian Bloodstock, Phyrexian Reaper, Polluted Dead, Shepherd of Rot, or Smokespew Invoker if they aren't what you need, so the only reason not to have such tools available is the risk of your opponent finding enchantment destruction.

Sewer Shambler, Vengeful Dead, and Zombie Scavengers also synergize nicely with your Noble.

Ghoulcaller's Chant is fantastic value. I'd maindeck two at least.

As for what I'd cut, Read the Bones is just diluting your zombie count, as is Vile Rebirth. Meanwhile, Servant of Tymaret, Gravedigger, and Walking Corpse aren't too exciting here either.

Your choice of uncommons also don't really do enough to justify their cost considering they also don't have the Zombie type. You'd probably be better off with Soulless One and/or Undead Warchief, or maybe Skinrender, Stromgald Crusader, Yixlid Jailer, and Noxious Ghoul if you want to go full toolbox.

I feel like this deck could become very vulnerable to cards as innocuous as Vile Rebirth , which would be quite effective at defusing your combo. Your Noble might be too vulnerable in the graveyard.

@Zackalot Great idea with Vile Rebirth . I like the instant idea because of Toshiro Umezawa ability. I originally wanted to use Gravecrawler over Diregraf Ghoul but simply went with the cheaper option.

MrBiggieD I would not run Sarcomancy because that downside could be pretty worrisome later on. I would recommend Gravecrawler instead, or even Vile Rebirth if you're looking for something that can block. Plus, vile rebirth can be done at instant speed, so combat tricks.

This seems fine for causal play. A few slight tweaks though, Vile Rebirth is pretty bad. Think of it more as graveyard hate than a way to cheat in a ceature. Instead I suggest something like Vapor Snag to slow your opponents down or save your own dudes from removal. Memory Sluice doesnt fit here at all. Consider replacing it and your Distress for a 4x of Duress . Also consider some Go for the Throat and / or Mutilate .

I also suggest replacing Diabolic Tutor with some form of card draw instead.
