Oh, also, Bone Dancer is a gem. Start murdering your unfortunate creature-based opponent's utility creatures turn 4 and building up their board on your side of the field.

Ashnod's Altar - Sick with lots of tokens Sadistic Hypnotist - Again sick with a lot of tokens Approach of the Second Sun With enough mana: cast, attack, cast again, win Bone Dancer - very cool Zombie :) Zombie Apocalypse - Why do I even have to suggest this? :)

In my deck I run a Rooftop Storm and Arcane Adaptation you can choose zombies and amplify Scarab God's impactAlso Army of the Damned is an absurdly good card for this deck and if you want to keep the graveyard theme Bone Dancer is a good choice

Whoah first time anyones made suggestions on any of my decks,so i'll do my best to go over why i've made many of the decisions I've made.

First off my plan is a mix of damage and mill using mill in order to steal from an opponents graveyard with the cards Geth, Lord of the Vault ,Bone Dancer,and the big one Hedonist's Trove, plus wanting my opponents to have a large graveyard to make Consuming Aberration big makes my amount of graveyard hate somewhat small with only Bojuka Bogas a full grave exile and Crypt Incursion getting rid of all creatures and serve as my only real source of life gain.

as for Corpse Harvester i currently have 3 non specialized tutors though i may consider it over Sidisi, Undead Vizier due to it being reusable.

I may look for a place for Forgotten Creation as my card draw isn't perfect.

As for reanimation i have several reusable reanimation sources and a creature that can be recurred at any time namely Gravecrawler.

I have considered Soulless One but i feel i don't need both it and Consuming Aberration and i simply think the aberration is better(although i may look for a place for it,it is in my maybe board for a reason).

As for Dread Summons i have tried to avoid self milling as i lack artifact,enchantment and land recursion outside of Psychic Spiral

Finally I unfortunately can't play Crypt Ghast as it has white mana in its color identity and therefore can't be used with either my current commander or your suggestion of Phenax,God of Deception .

Thanks for your suggestions I really,genuinely appreciate them but i won't be able to use most of them for some of the reasons above. I'll make a more elaborate description explaining my deck and it's stratagems in the future.

But for now thanks for the feedback and have a fantastic day.

I have a similar deck except the commander is Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and it is full of clones. Some cards you might like are Memory Plunder, Grip of Phyresis, Evil Twin, Lord of the Void, and Bone Dancer (if you have a way to make this unblockable).

Joumba Hey man, thanks for the +1!

Actually, I already have a Zombie Master on the waiting list (even without the Swampwalk, the abillity to regenerate my guys is quite necessary here), but I'm not sure what to take away to put it, any suggestion?

As for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, I can't afford it as of now... :(

Anyway, that's a cool combo (didn't thought of Bone Dancer before) and will try to make it happen on the future for this deck!
