Ayula, Queen Among Bears should be replaced by Zombie Infestation it would be copies 5-8 of influence.

How exactly do you deal with the "draw" part of the deck? Since going infinite sacrificing stuff to Yawgmoth will make you draw your whole deck and then lose by deck over if you don't kill everyone by then...

I thought about Kozilek, Butcher of Truth + Zombie Infestation so you could discard your entire deck and reshuffle to go infinite while making more tokens.

KaiyanK Hi, I've played mono-black a whole bunch. Zombies is an interesting tribe with some cool options.

Right now you are setup as a slow aggro deck- the traditional fix to that is to become a fast aggro deck. You can pack a decent disruption package and zombie making enchantments to become more midrange so long as you pack card advantage tools. The important part is looking over your options and picking cards that work well together. I have a big list of mono black stuff I've made work in modern. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox

Key options are;

Stitcher's Supplier +Graveyard shenanigans ( Haunted Dead etc)

Zombie Infestation +discard/graveyard shenanigans

Geralf's Messenger / Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Gurmag Angler best zombie in the format

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade powerful ramp w/ Lashwrithe

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed easy combo fuel, if you can reach six mana

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge & Bridge from Below powerful shenanigans.

Languish Budget damnation dodged by big creatures.

I'm testing a combo list Familiar Ground at the moment- its a hybrid umbral mantle izzet guildmage combo deck making use of Biomancer's Familiar as extra Training Grounds .

I think Temple Bell / Howling Mine always sound like a good idea but ultimately become your undoing; especially in a multiplayer game... someone is gonna end up drawing/playing something you cant deal with and or combo off (thats my opinion)... in a 1V1 game it could work with blowing up lands with Sinkhole / Strip Mine and all that kinda fun stuff; and id say go the opposite rout of The Rack / Shrieking Affliction and go with Black Vise / Ebony Owl Netsuke .

I suggest Necrogen Mists to keep hands empty and Dakmor Salvage for its synergy with Smallpox / Raven's Crime ... for some protection Ensnaring Bridge can help keep creatures from plowing you over and Pack Rat / Zombie Infestation can be good for getting value from "dead" discard spells.... there is also the queen of 8-Rack herself Liliana of the Veil .

The battle I've always had with heartless decks is that without it a lot of the deck becomes dead weight. Semblance Anvil does a bunch to fix that, but it still hits some major headaches in the reliability front.

To combat that, I'd look at making a backup plan- personally I'd run Slag Fiend and Zombie Infestation to give a 'none of this is helpful, I'm gonna hit you in the face' option, but that can be less than appealing when you have to make the choice turn two on whether to abandon your hand entirely.

There are fifteen sideboard slots to look at- a transformative board is very possible, with things like Ravenous Chupacabra and Avalanche Riders offering a lot of value to face down graveyard hate.

hi cgomes I share much of your ideas in the text.. I have a similar deck idea, let me know what you think ;)

Exil-Flicker remastered

For Humility , relying only on one card against creazture based decks is not a good idea.

Humility and Zombie Infestation can easily broken with Lightmine Field .

Instead of Land Tax I play in sideboard Weathered Wayfarer and Elixir of Immortality if opponent has land destruction deck. and Ghost Quarter ing my own lands let me search for basics against Blood Moon decks.

There was a serious analysis of the deck on r/spikes a while back.

The author went really deep, but IIRC the key points were: 1x Zombie Infestation is optimal, and Contested War Zone is helpful.

Good luck (and skill) with the deck!

You have a lot of sorceries. They're not necessarily bad, but they are taking up space where zombies could be. You can get rid of innocent blood (use fleshbag marauder instead), aether snap, twilight's call, life's finale

You don't really need vensor's journal or whispersilk cloak. You don't really have big creatures that do anything on combat damage to a player.

For instants I think tendrils of corruption, grasp of darkness, murder, go for the throat, and doom blade do well in mono black

And you got some jank creatures. What is that vulture? no. No dross hopper, no gangrenous zombies, no zombie brute, gutless ghoul is kind of crap, you have a lot of things with activated abilities and I just don't think you're going to be using them that much.

You also don't have card draw. You have a sign in blood and that's it really. Black has some good pay with life card draw cards.

You have the sanguine bond/exquisite blood combo, but your sanguine bond is completely useless. You don't gain any life except from vensor's journal and you don't have much card draw, so it's not going to do much.

Good zombie cards to add: Fleshbag Marauder (so good with mikaeus) Ghoulcaller Gisa Ghoulraiser Graf Harvest Grave Betrayal Grave Defiler Graveborn Muse Gravecrawler Infernal Caretaker josu vess Liliana's Mastery Lord of the Accursed Maalfeld Twins Necromancer's Stockpile Necromantic Selection Noosegraf Mob Open the Graves Grave Titan Liliana's Reaver Cadaver Imp Corpse Connoisseur Accursed Horde Archdemon of Unx cemetary recruitment Cryptbreaker Diregraf Colossus Doomed Dissenter Empty the Pits (is hilarious) Ever After Overseer of the Damned Plague Belcher Rakshasa Gravecaller Relentless Dead Risen Executioner Rot Hulk Shepherd of Rot Stir the Sands Zombie Infestation

I think I have some of these. You can have them if I do
