DragonSliver9001: Suicide was an old deck archytype back around when extended was a format, basically using powerful but dangerous creatures such as Phyrexian Negator and Carnophage along with Dark Ritual for quick starts. It also featured Hatred and Unmask for kills out of nowhere through interaction.

It would certainly be a different deck in modern.

This one is from my new deck Munch. It involves two cards and is super erratic and you might die in the process, sooo ... basically no downsides!

Spoils of the Vault + Death's Shadow.

It doesn't actually need to be Shadow, it can be anything that wants you to have a low life total, but I like it best.

Cast Spoils, naming Death's Shadow. Go until you hit it. Cast it. Sometimes it's tiny because it was already the top card of your library (or straight up dies because you still have 14+ life); sometimes you die before casting it; but the best feeling is getting a T1 11/11 Death's Shadow with a Dark Ritual and getting a Carnophage friend along with it. Admittedly, you now die to Lightning Bolt, sooo ... eh, forget it, no one plays that card, right?

Hi, great deck! I have a few suggestions if you don't mind. First, I would cut Harsh Sustenance. Its an alright card but Gray Merchant of Asphodel is just straight up better and right on curve for you. Sustenance makes you splash white which slows your deck down with the fetches and the possibility of not getting double black when you need it. Also, early it's likely a dead card where you would rather be drawing zombies. Gary on the other hand is another zombie that could actually do more damage than sustenance. So I would suggest going to 3-4 Garys and gutting all of the Sustenance, plains, and Barrens and go to just 20 black sources. That will make some space for more Garys and maybe some Sign in Blood which is a pretty important draw spell in the deck.

Next, I would suggest adding Cast Down. It is hands down the best spot removal in all of pauper. Hits everything at instant speed for only 2 mana.

Viscera Seer- while not a zombie she is a very good sac outlet to help you dig through your deck.

Butcher Ghoul- great card, it can be sacrificed twice, is just a good blocker and is hard to kill.

Carnophage- just a thought, its probably not something you want to add because it seems like this deck is more midrange instead of agro but an interesting card non the less.

Bone Picker- another interesting card that could work with your aristocrats theme but not a zombie so it also might not be the best.

Ooh, I really like Diregraf Ghoul, that's a solid replacement for Carnophage I usually don't do a whole lot of blocking anyway, so that might be a solid choice!

And Oona's Prowler Looks like a solid addition. Would be nice to have more evasion.

Yeah, I'm not really sure why I left out 3cc stuff in the original build. Master of the Feast and Rotting Regisaur both look like solid additions, and give me some heavy hitters so I don't have to rely on Hatred so much. As mostly a pure weenie build as it sits, it does have a tendency to get bogged down versus bigger bodies.

I really appreciate the feedback! I'll look into testing a few different versions, and report back here once I've got some fresh results under my belt.

I like momo black aggro decks. Back in the old days I played a lot Black Suicide decks. On TappedOut I have a mono black singleton deck where you can find a lot of suggestion for your deck: Mono Black No More Suicide

Just some of the best suggestion:

For Carnophage maybe Diregraf Ghoul or Vampire Lacerator

Really good two-drops are: Oona's Prowler and Scrapheap Scrounger

But I would add more one-drops or some three-drops for better consistency of the mana usage of Dark Ritual Maybe Gutterbones, Bloodsoaked Champion, Master of the Feast, Dread Shade or Rotting Regisaur

You sure about Vampire Bats? Flying is swell, but I think a quick and low-to-the-ground deck like this might prefer something like Carnophage or Carrion Feeder .

Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.

Humans: $15 Humans (Elite Inquisitors are for some spicy Vampire/Werewolf/Zombie hate)

Vampires: $15 Madness Vampires (Stromkirk Noble in place of Vampire Lacerator/Indulgent Aristocrat can be cool against the humans deck)

Here's a bonus Kor equipment deck I made for fun a while ago but never posted on tappedout: $15 Kor Equipment

I tried to make a decent zombies deck that fit within the budget but it's such a popular tribe that all the semi-good cards are over $1 each, which made it nigh impossible to make something good. If you're fine with pauper decks though, here's a zombie deck I made in that format: Suicide is occasionally the answer. It's like 10 bucks without the sideboard and can hold up pretty well against other non-competitive modern decks (and is really fun in multiplayer with Shepherd of Rot heheh).

If you don't mind using non-pauper legal cards, I suggest you make these edits:

The last two add $8ish to the price tag but with them the deck becomes more competitive and easier to play. That said, managing your life total is pretty fun if you enjoy a challenge, and chaining together Maggot Carriers with Ghoulcaller's Chant to hit the opponent for the last few points of damage is pretty satisfying. Do what you want with it.
