Zombie Infestation Discussion

I personally would trade out Dreamstealer for Lich Lord of Unx. I feel dreamstealer eternalize is a bit too steep of a cost for what it does when you can simply just exile it to make a 2/2 zombie token. Call to the Grave, Grimoire of the Dead, Liliana, Death's Majesty, and Zombie Infestation are good considerations also.

Thank you for this response everyone !
Ouroboros_47 I tried to make a selections of cards that have another purpose than just put things into graveyard. This is the reason why i cut Stitcher's Supplier or Corpse Connoisseur. Delirium Skeins and Zombie Infestation seems good but I don't know if I want to throw a half or a third of my hand to fill up my graveyard. I will consider Smallpox and Darkblast. I think Darkblast can easily fill up the graveyard.
bushido_man96 I like your vision of the deck. If Izoni was Sultai... It would be so powerfull. Anyway... I like the idea of trigger multiple times her ability. Conjurer's Closet seems to be a great addition to the deck. It synergizes with all the ETB ability. Same with Temur Sabertooth(triggers Avenger of Zendikar, Fleshbag Marauder effects, Wood Elves effects). And what do you think about Panharmonicon ? And think Tortured Existence and Phyrexian Reclamation can be better engine recursion than "one shot" recursions like Animate Dead or Eternal Witness. And the deck will be more polyvalent.
So what do you think about this cuts ?

The big trick I've found for making mono black kick ass at FNM is to take a wildly diffrent list every week. There are tier 2 variations taking it all the way from aggro to control, and they all need to be sideboarded against differently. When half your opponents mis-sideboard and have half a hand of dead cards, your winrate goes up a lot.

Hi, Its always good to see now people building decks. Your list is remarkably solid for a first timer- I know that my first decks were a lot worse in comparison.
This is functionally running as a black devotion list with a twist- there are various primers out there (including a solid competitive one on this site). I have a big list of cards I've built in mono-black (Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox) Feel free to browse. A lot of the best cards aren't hugely expensive- there are just more copies of them than people playing those decks thanks to standards of the past (I get a lot of mileage out of Zombie Infestation and Rakdos Charm, for example.)
In terms of what you should be putting in your deck, its important to look at what you are playing. Casual matches can support almost any deck, and the important thing is keeping it fun. FNMs are a little more competitive, thanks to netdecking, but what exactly to put in a deck depends on what the people around you are playing. If its all affinity and merfolk, you need to pack something like Languish to clear the board or big lifelink to climb through the aggro. If its all Cryptic Command/Supreme Verdict, you need to look at ways to bypass counterspells and sweepers. Its all very situational, and there are a lot of options- many fo them fairly cheap.
If you are going to spend money on playing B/R in modern at FNM (although you can play budget lists forever- there are enough cards out there), your first purchases should be Lightning Bolt and Inquisition of Kozilek. They are the most efficient cards available in terms of how good they are and how much they cost.
Good luck, and I hope you have a lot of fun brewing decks.

Fleeting Memories seems like the worst payoff for something like this. Maybe something hilarious like Zombie Infestation since both Treasure Hunt and cracking clues helps it? Winning with damage is preferable if you're playing Tireless Tracker (aka, the best card ever printed :P)
