Butcher of Malakir and Xathrid Demon would be cool.

Cool deck! If you watched any of the pro tour last weekend, you already know that zombies crushed it. This might seem like a bit of a copout, but look at the top eight decklists of the PT. You'll get some really good ideas.

Off the top of my head, here are some things that I would cut/add to the deck.

Cut: Those Who Serve, Gravedigger, Fan Bearer (maybe sideboard it), Gideon and Liliana, Start/Finish, Never//Return, Harsh Scrutiny and one or two Binding Mummy. I know this sounds like a lot, but there are plenty of cards to take their place.

Add: Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Dread Wanderer, Cryptbreaker, Diregraf Colossus (this card gets insane), Dark Salvation, Anguished Unmaking, Liliana's Mastery, and perhaps Transgress the Mind. The pros weren't playing transgress in their mainboards, but 2 copies might be nice.

I know that this changes the deck a ton, I'm just going off of what the pros did. I do like that you have Plague Belcher, that's one that didn't see much play, but I think it's perfect in this deck.

I hope this was at least a little helpful, good luck!

I would still say that in a non-control deck, like this one, Cancel is just bad. You're running four colors, double blue on turn 3 is going to be really hard. I'd say don't run counter magic at all, but if you really want to, at least go with Spell Shrivel. Single blue is easier, it exiles, and they typically can't pay the 4 mana anyway.

Also, I'm probably the only person in my generation that doesn't have Instagram, but thanks for the offer. I also take it you're a fan of bant, lol.

Interesting idea for a deck. If the plan is to run zero creatures in the 75, I would run the full 4 Fumigate. Also, have you considered Nissa's Renewal or Bounty of the Luxa? I think that either one of these would be really good in this deck.

I think there's also a compelling argument for running Compelling Argument in the deck (see what I did there?). Cast approach, mill five after your draw step, it's on top of your library. It's not as fast as using it with Aetherworks Marvel, but it's a nice substitute.

Aside from that, I would cut Cancel, Stasis Snare, and Negate. This leaves you with 10 more slots to run the playset of Approach (which you should have, it's your win condition after all), Anticipate and Glimmer of Genius. Drawing as many cards as you can is important for this deck. You can't just rely on Fevered Visions.

Oh snap, totally missed that. Thanks a lot Guardians!

I'd replace Shock with either Magma Spray or Galvanic Bombardment. I know shock hits face, but you very very rarely going to want to hit face over a creature. In fact, if you ever move into an energy build, Harnessed Lightning would be better than all of those cards.

I would take out Channeler Initiate and at least one copy of Chandra, Flamecaller. You really don't need any sort of ramp in this deck, you'd be better off with something like Radiant Flames against zombies. Chandra, Flamecaller is really good, but I'd sub her out for something like Goblin Dark-Dwellers. Or, you could even replace her with Chandra, Torch of Defiance. That Chandra is insane if you can protect it.

Aside from that, Transgress the Mind does an okay imitation of Thoughtseize, i'd run a couple copies. Hope this helps!

Maze of Ith and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx would be good lands to consider. Also Birthing Pod is great. Harvest Season and Boundless Realms seem good as well.

Twilight Mire is a good land for this deck.

I completely understand the Emmy/Nahiri wombo combo, but if I were you, I would actually leave it out. Please let me explain, because I know that sounds crazy when you first here it.

You already have the madcap/emperion combo to close a game, and it's a much easier, quicker combo than nahiri/Emmy. That combo also allows you to keep the artifact that you find on the battlefield, instead of returning it to your hand. Also, if Emmy is in your opening hand, or if you draw into it, you can't look for it off of nahiri. Those are the reasons that I think madcap/emperion combo is kind of better.

With the 5 open slots you would have after cutting Emmy and Nahiri, I would run the 4th copy of Lingering Souls and Path to Exile, and maybe put in Kolaghan's Command.

It's up to you, but those are my suggestions. Good luck.

I know that your average cmc is really low, but you still need more than 18 lands.

I can't tell if you're trying to make an agro deck, or a semi-control deck, or a prowess deck. You have your foot in a few different decks. If I were you, I would go with more of an aggressive strategy. Leave out cards like Serum Visions Slip Through Space and Electrolyze, and put in cards like Mantis Rider Goblin Guide and Geist of Saint Traft. With this strategy, you can get away with running about 20 lands. Good luck.

This isn't modern, this is frontier.

Oh you know what Heroic Intervention might be good.
