I would highly recommend looking at Grave Pact if budget isn't too much of an issue or if it is Dictate of Erebos and Carrion Feeder working with Aphotic Wisps and Phyrexian Ghoul to lance a BIG creature through. As well as Geralf's Messenger working as a fun sac creature that comes back and maaybe Mind Slash and Attrition if you're going through and through on sac that add a LOT of utility and flexibility. Hope this helps, nice deck concept.

n0bunga even if it just for creatures, your deck seems based on being able to kill or exile creatures, but Harsh Scrutiny's main power is to let you know what's in their hand and let you scry 1. Which can really help consistency and beneficial deck results.

If your goal is build huge amounts of zombies, I would highly recommend Endless Ranks of the Dead since that creates an ever increasing amount of zombies to go with. Plus maybe some tribal style guys like Lord of the Undead, Death Baron, and of the best 1 drop zombie ever Gravecrawler who can keep coming and only be permanently removed by exile. Relentless Dead is also a pretty powerful zombie for 2 mana. Undead Warchief, Unbreathing Horde are some good zombies worth looking at. If I were you, to zombies and making a zombie horde effective, I would focus more on the zombie cards specifically rather than cards that help swarm with whatever. House got some cards there for the draw but Cryptbreaker owns the field on drawing a stupid amount of cards once a zombie horde starts going and has won tournaments because of his draw and discard effects. But if you really need some good draw cards, Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, and Altar's Reap are the best fast paced draws. Hope all of this helps! Cheers!

You have some good cards and combos in there. But you might want to work on it to make it more efficient. Here are some of the best zombies for a fast styled deck you might want to look at.Gravecrawler Highborn Ghoul, Relentless Dead, Carrion Feeder, Nantuko Husk, Diregraf Ghoul, Shambling Ghoul, Geralf's Messenger, Lord of the Undead are just a few that maybe you haven't seen yet. All the zombies you have are good ones, but the only real problem I see with your deck design is you way too many high mana cost things that really slow down your deck, for example a fast easy combo to pull off in the first few turns is Cryptbreaker can discard Gravecrawler from your hand, generate a 2/2 token, then Diregraf Colossus comes along and it gets a bare minimum +1/+1 counter for Gravecrawler in the grave yard, then next turn cast Gravecrawler from the grave yard and generate a 2/2 token as you cast the crawler from the graveyard. I would recommend in short to focus on a few zombies and shore up what you need to play your deck out and win and then spread out for variety and versatility with your deck, the best ones to shore up on to have 4 of are Cryptbreaker, Grave Crawler and Diregraf Colossus which those can make and generate a LOT of zombies very quickly and work best with Endless Ranks of the Dead coming out. Hope this helps, nice deck!

Nice deck design, I would highly recommend, Blighted Woodland, Undergrowth Champion, Liege of the Tangle and Zendikar's Roil. And maybe for utility, Avatar of the Resolute, Fog, maaaybe Vigor and Asceticism as some good utility cards. I hope this helps! +1

Really awesome looking deck, but it looks like you're missing a super critical card maybe you've heard but if you haven't, Baral, Chief of Compliance this guy you need him in your deck, he fits like glove in what you're doing. Hope this suggestion helps! +1

Thanks for the tidbit Epochalyptik I was just wondering about that as well.

Hello I am having a problem with the site itself, everytime I try to search decks with specific cards, more than 2 cards, based on scores, it shows nothing, no results at all. Not even "no results" found just the page cuts off under the hub search parameters and unless I refresh the page, It won't even let me search the same card twice because it will claim even with correct spelling, "no matches found" Someone please help me or try to fix this problem. I don't know why it's doing this.

Hello, I am wondering how ownership and graveyard rules apply to situations. like if Geth, Lord of the Vault puts an opponent's Relentless Dead under your control, then it died and you paid it's first saving effect cost, would it return to your hand or your opponents since they technically owned that creature? I hope I phrased this question well enough as it is a rather confusing topic and I would appreciate any help on clarifying it.

No their power is based solely on the number of swamps in play not the mana. But korlash if you put 4 of him in a deck can fetch 2 swamps if another korlash is in your hand. That combo works best with Lord of the Undead in a zombie styled deck because the lord can make that combo happen at least twice a turn every turn once it goes off.

Not really sure what you're going for here but in the comments 2 good cards to speed up and play off the whole infinite mana combo is Korlash, Heir to Blackblade and Lashwrithe. But it looks like your deck is suffering from a lack of synergy if I had to take a gander as to why it wouldn't play out well. Vampires, zombies, and demons are the best staples/tribal types to play out in black. Some good suggestions for those are
These are the best cards to add in generic styled black decks, there are better cards in each of those categories but those are a few of the best in general and don't need other mechanics to work well. I hope these help as this is your first deck!

Thanks steghryndal! I wanted to put in some music for one of my zombie decks and couldn't figure it out. I would recommend taking out a Strangleroot Geist for nylea, that's a good card for it's mana cost but every other card contributes more to the theme of the deck and it doesn't fly like most spirits, and that just is a one time thing with undying. Also have you heard of per chance Asceticism? That would make you creatures extremely hard to kill even if it is a tad high mana cost, since it is one of the most overpowered cards in magic that isn't cheese and probably one of the most powerful in green. And maybe Vigor? And since you're playing golgari, a good black card to consider is Sudden Spoiling, a card that can literally change defeat into victory if used correctly but works primarily best against creature heavy decks. Hope these suggestions also help!

Nylea, God of the Hunt is the best card to give your creatures trample. Really good deck idea! It's really good. +1 Also since you put a YouTube video in your description, could you show me the code you used to do that?

This deck looks really solid. Very good job with the concept! +1

What order do these effects trigger? My thoughts are that since you as the controller controls what order things trigger and go on the stack, you can trigger Grave Betrayal first so that the opponent's creature would whenever the death trigger goes off, then Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet second effect goes off, and I looked up the ruling that technically the creature dies first but doesn't go to the graveyard, so that the creature is exiled and a 2/2 token zombie is created under your control, then Grave Betrayal fetches that creature that died and it comes back from the exile as a black zombie. Is this how they would interact with each other or do they interact in some other way? It isn't really an overpowered combo, just one I think I found and wanted to have fun with. Thanks for any help!
