Attack with your zombies agressively beacuse if they die you will put them back in the game with Balthor the Defiled.

Relentless Dead, Zulaport Cutthroat, and/or Blood Artist might help a bit. You seem to need a couple more 2 drops, so a touch of lifegain and some extra graveyard recursion couldn't hurt (plus you don't need to rely so much on grabbing the Vengeful Dead for your infinite).

Oh yeah, Necromancer's Stockpile and Undead Gladiator can really help with card draw and set you up for reanimate effects. Living Death can be a really one sided board wipe, especially if you're ditching a lot of zombies in trades, sacrifices, or to the stockpile.

Again I accepted your advice, the more i play this deck i find more combos. Things like Mikaeus, Phyrexian altar, Grim haruspex on table are very powerful, endless mana + endless card draw and cards like Morality shift are just great, exchange your library and graveyard then put all those zombies out with Balthor, and that is the end

Balthor is kinda broken in commander, I love it. I really want a copy so I can try something similar. I am partial to U/B zombies myself (trying my hand at a B/U/G build with Sidisi now), but mono-black is just so classic. If only there were a couple zombies with dredge... A man can dream
