Thinking about this in parts. 1 you have to remember you are an aristocrat build all creatures are fuel for your engine. Hidden Stockpile is a overachiever in this type of deck. Brutal Hordechief can let you choose blocks why not just win also drain is helpful too. Corpse Knight sudo aristocrat. Dusk / Dawn refills your hand late game. All these types of lands no Field of the Dead??? I think Species Specialist sucks overall up to you if you keep it. Living Death or Command the Dreadhorde for mass reanimation for the win would be good. Also a personal favorite Peer into the Abyss and Mausoleum Secrets for instant speed tutor for most key pieces.

If I blink Yorion, Sky Nomad with Charming Prince, and and then have Yorion, Sky Nomad blink Charming Prince , and have Corpse Knight on the field, would it do infinite damage? Also, would I be able to blink Charming Prince and another or any other permanents and Charming Prince with Yorion, Sky Nomad?

Boogsbay Thank you for such a thorough comment and suggestions! You've confirmed my suspitions that this deck is too slow.

I was tempted to take out Cryptbreaker for Undead Augur but was being stubborn since I spent the money on Cryptbreaker already lol. But it makes sense to take them out. No use if I need to tap three zombies and the point of this deck is to constantly be sacrificing them.

Carrion Feeder was on my radar but I figured I already had enough avenues for sacrifice, but it wouldnt hurt to add more. Plus he gets bigger and can become a threat if not dealt with.

I would love some fetch lands, but my budget doesn't right now haha. But I can add it to the deck so that it is fully optimized. Good point with the Godless Shrine with the Castle Locthwain play. I didn't even consider that.

In my mind Geralf's Messenger and Gravecrawler are the ultimate zombie cards and represent everything that a zombiue deck should be. I also wanted some of him, but my budget also doesn't allow it unfortunately.

I liked the life gain that Wayward Servant provided, but I see Corpse Knight would be better. Not only would it enable triggers from Zulaport Cutthroat but also Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia. That's a potential 6 more triggers.

I will gladly replace Blasting Station with Unearth, my budget thanks you for this one haha.

You've got me thinking with Ghoulish Procession oppposed to Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia. I'll need to think on that one.

Again, I really appreciate such great feedback!

The deck looks good but seems somewhat slow. Some suggestions IMO would be:

Some considerations:

  • Corpse Knight over Wayward Servant to include Zulaport Cutthroat for ETB triggers.

  • Unearth over Blasting Station if you already swapped out some land for Geralf's Messenger. These two, at the very least, makes the opponent lose 8 life; more with Cutthroat and Knight on the field. Reanimating other creatures is also another viable strategy to get out of a tight situation.

  • Ghoulish Procession over Jadar since it's a nonlegendary permanent that can potentially make more zombies to fuel an aristocrats strategy and trigger ETB and death triggers.

For sideboard:

Recently while I was playing on MTG Arena I came across Grinning Ignus and it seemed that this could be a good combo piece. I was sitting there thinking how I could make this infinite, and I remembered Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip was also in standard. Together these two create infinite ETB and infinite LTB. Now all I had to do was add Terror of the Peaks to win. In historic you have more options like Corpse Knight and Grapeshot that cost much less. I made a deck around this combo here. I have never seen this played in MTG Arena at all. Has everyone missed it because it seems somewhat decent?

zapyourtumor on orzhov afterlife lv 1

Are you sure you want this to be a modern deck? It could currently either be a modern or a pioneer deck, and you should probably choose one and stick with it.

If you choose modern, Doomed Traveler fits the theme of the deck pretty well. Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a powerhouse that gives all your creatures afterlife, doubles as removal, and is another instant-speed sac outlet. Honestly, she's the only reason I would consider playing an afterlife deck in modern. Xathrid Necromancer is another option that generates tons of tokens off of most of your creatures, and it works really well with Hero of Precinct One .

For lands, there's Marsh Flats , Concealed Courtyard , and Isolated Chapel . Vault of the Archangel is very strong in any token deck.

This deck definitely needs a playset of Fatal Push for removal which works in either format, plus maybe some Path to Exile or Vindicate if you choose to stick with modern. Mortify is bad in both formats so I'd cut it. 4x Kaya's Wrath is definitely overkill and might not be the best choice, since even though your board would have a bunch of spirits it would still wipe a lot of your creatures.

Giant Killer is just bad outside of standard. Athreos and Ethereal Absolution are also too slow, and I don't think Sorin adds enough to the gameplan to justify including him. Teysa Karlov obviously synergizes a lot but I'd take her out since she doesn't have any immediate board impact (while the other Teysa can have its abilities activated at instant speed to do a bunch of stuff in response). Not sure if Corpse Knight is worth it either. The other Athreos, Athreos, God of Passage , might be worth trying as a 1-of.
