Said on Mono-Black Devotion...

Also, Blood Moon would be great in the sideboard.

Sorry, what I meant to say was I would run 4 copies of Phyrexian Arena. You already have two, I would go all in on it.

You don't have too many ways to kill their threats. Maybe try running Desecration Demon. Fits the devotion bill, and can either threaten their life total or keep the board clear.

Also, once you throw down Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, you can play out you hand pretty quickly. I would run Phyrexian Arena. I know most people don't, but when you have 15 mana available, you need cards to go with it. Just a thought. Cool deck.

I would say that you don't need Built to Smash or Aethersphere Harvester. You obviously have a human synergy going on, that's cool. You should have the full 4 Thalia's Lieutenant and 4 Honored Crop-Captain. Also, Always Watching isn't really that redundant, multiple copies is still nice, and this deck falls to pieces without it, so play 4.

Devoted Crop-Mate is great, I think 2 is a good amount, but really do add in the crop-captains and the last lieutenant to give it a few more good targets. Hitting something every combat step, even the extra ones with Combat Celebrant, should be the goal.

You have very little in the way of card advantage. Thraben Inspector is a fine 1-drop, I would run it over Bloodlust Inciter.

Although they're great cards, you might think about shaving Archangel Avacyn  Flip or Glorybringer (probably the avacyn) to run something like Chandra, Torch of Defiance. I only suggest this because you will need some amount of card draw should you go into the late game. You could even cut Thalia, Heretic Cathar. Again, very good card, but I would stick her into the sideboard.

As far as the sideboard goes, By Force is better than Release the Gremlins. You don't get creatures, but that's fine, you already have plenty. Selfless Spirit over Eerie Interlude, I assume you're running it primarily to evade removal. Sack the spirit, wipe the board, zombies die, swing for lethal, seems good. Gideon of the Trials is questionable. I might make an argument for Linvala, the Preserver, just against zombies or possibly the mirror.

Hope this helps, really awesome deck, good luck with it!
