TrevaTheCleva on Gisa - brain eaters.

Metallic Mimic pairs well with Adaptive Automaton

Ascendant Evincar seems too expensive but not terriblesame with Dread Slaver

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.

Lightning Greaves>Swiftfoot Bootsif you can afford em.Graf Harvest>Cover of Darkness

Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.

Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.

Forced Marchseems like there are better board wipe options, especially since this pretty much guaranties killing all Z's. Toxic DelugeDamnationLife's FinalePlague Wind

Jet Medallion> Mind Stoneor another rando rock

remove Smother for kill with life gain like Consuming Vapors.

You have a lot of life loss but I am not seeing life gain, consider cards like Whip of ErebosExquisite Bloodor any other cards that have lifelink tacked on them.

that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

Can i suggest Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, as he makes Zombie Master really good, all your Zombies are unblockable...

Also Bile Blight is too good not to include on a black build.

Voltron3030 on oh my mill

Undead Alchemist can be so much fun to mill with. There's a ton of cards to build a zombie army with him but my favorite is Zombie Master. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth makes it even more effective. You've got green so why not Parallel Lives to get math on your side? I use to run this combo when I had a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck and it was lots of fun.

You mention you like milling artifacts, so if you're bored, check out my mill deck centered on artifacts:

iAzire on ghoulcaller mono black

First things first, I would lower your land count to 35. You shouldn't need much more than that due to being Mono, and Black gets a lot of good ramp cards. Barren Moor and Myriad Landscape should be removed for sure. I would say Crypt of Agadeem needs testing. Personally I find it to be too slow.

Is it within your budget to get Snow-Covered Swamp with Extraplanar Lens?

Under your Artifacts, I would personally cut Charcoal Diamond due to it being a fairly weak mana rock. My suggestion would be Mana Crypt but you don't have to replace it. Coat of Arms is great but I have never found a need for it. It is something I cut. It is great when I have a lot, but if I have a lot, I should already be winning. This is what we call "Win More" but it could also hurt you. Consulate Dreadnought is an easy cut. You would usually rather attack with the Zombies. Door of Destinies is another card I would cut. It's only getting counters when you cast spells, while Gisa is usually swarming with tokens. Door of Destinies is a personal choice, and the best card I just suggested to be cut.

As you want more mana ramp, especially due to my cut of Charcoal Diamond, get a Black Market.

I don't like Graf Harvest, you already have Zombie Master, I would also include Filth. Unblockable is better than still being able to be blocked.

I just realized, you also need an Expedition Map. It can find, Cabal Coffers (95% of the time this is what you get), Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, or Reliquary Tower. Whatever you need at the time.

Hissing Miasma is okay, I think Koskun Falls is better. I don't personally run either, but again that's personal choice.

I'll get to the Sorceries and Creatures later. Those two with Instants are all personal choices.

I'm not sure how much I've helped with cuts so far as I've made a few suggestions. We will figure this out.

I love me some good ol' zombie tribal! Deck looks like a lot of fun! I run a similar style deck with Gisa and Geralf at the helm. I'm not sure what your budget is but I do have a few suggestions (budget-pending):

I would consider adding in the following zombies:

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed
Death Baron
Zombie Master + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth = unblockable zombies!
Prized Amalgam
Shepherd of Rot
Cryptbreaker
Balthor the Defiled
Vengeful Dead (really hurts if you go infinte sac with Gravecrawler)

I feel these zombies can help replace some of the weaker members of your horde like the following:

Abattoir Ghoul
Gavony Unhallowed
Gravedigger
Ghoulraiser
Returned Phalanx
Stitcher Geralf

Along similar lines, I see that you have some reanimation spells in your deck however, if your budget allows, I would make the upgrade to some of the following:

Reanimate
Necromancy
Dread Return
Living Death
Rise of the Dark Realms
Beacon of Unrest

Best of luck!

iAzire on i want to make a ...

I'm not sure about creatures but Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is my obvious first thought. Blanket of Night is a cheap Enchantment that has the same effect. I will remind you, redundancy is important. You don't want to lose your ability to Swampwalk because your opponent removes Urborg.

Contaminated Ground, Evil Presence, and Tainted Well all provide Swampwalk but only for one opponent each. Leshrac's Rite gives one of your creatures Swampwalk.

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is a "Swamps Matter" Commander, although I'm not sure how good he will perform. Zombie Master can be ran to give him Swampwalk as well. Squelching Leeches and Nightmare are both creatures that benefit from a lot of Swamps.

Personally I run a Ghoulcaller Gisa deck that is Zombie Tribal. The Tribal theme is primary, while Swampwalk is just a hopeful Win Condition.

I figure you also want as much land ramp as you can get, especially if you are running Korlash as your Commander. Black has some issues with this but Liliana of the Dark Realms is good. I can't think of much else outside of Burnished Hart and Expedition Map.

You will definitely want to run Cabal Coffers, I suggest using all Snow-Covered Swamp and Extraplanar Lens to double the mana from each of your Basics, while not giving your opponents any benefit. Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are also good. Lastly, Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are both awesome.

4x Endless Ranks of the Dead is way too much.

Death Baron is vastly superior to Zombie Master.

Since you run 4x Geralf's Messenger you could abuse of cards like Voldaren Pariah  Flip

I'm not too sure what kind of suggestions you wanted so I don't want to suggest anything that would touch the deck's core :)

Oh and you are quite vulnerable to lockdown spells or artifacts since you got no ways to interact with your opponent. I'd suggest something like Duress
