Dark Salvation

Sorcery

Target player creates X 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens onto the battlefield, then up to one target creature gets -1/-1 until end of turn for each Zombie that player controls.

I'd work on lowering your curve a bit. 4x Champion of the Perished would help there, along with maybe adding 2 more Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia (Which also triggers Champion). Cryptbreaker is another powerful 1 drop zombie.

Liliana's Reaver is a 4 drop that relies on pushing combat damage through to do its thing. 3 copies is definitely too much. Thief of Sanity isn't even a zombie, and it's a 3 drop, why are there 3 of them. Similarly, Dreamstealer isn't even a zombie either and doesn't synergize super well with the deck. Yes it has eternalize but it costs 6 mana so.

Some other good zombies: Diregraf Colossus (synergizes with graveyard subtheme), Lord of the Accursed, Death Baron.

Dark Salvation and Fatal Push are really nice removal spells, which can replace Infernal Grasp. Even with X=0, the former can kill most creatures, and if you have extra mana you can make some zombies too. For the latter, revolt shouldn't be too hard to trigger either with all your zombies running around.

Would any of the zombie token spawners be helpful? There's a lot that just spit out hordes and hordes of zombies for you to sacrifice.

Stuff like Open the Graves , Army of the Damned , and Dark Salvation come to mind.

You might need some more creatures for Open the Graves to work, though recurring creatures like the Squees are pretty good to keep fueling it.

It's clear that you want to be an aristocrat deck so I would recommend more creatures. Here are some that card that make creature tokens and are more budget friendly: Bastion of Remembrance, Abhorrent Overlord, Aphemia, the Cacophony, Dark Salvation, and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Do you own Bitterblossom? If you do, then I would consider it. Here are three non-budget cards that you might consider after playtesting: Grave Titan, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Ghoulcaller Gisa.

ok i looked at a deck i have and some cards that might maybe work are:

The Scarab God (good game winner i think)

Cryptbreaker just seems like good value

Graf Harvest

Drunau Corpse Trawler

Dark Salvation

yes these are definitely not budget

magwaaf, I like having just a copy floating around. I have 4x Dark Salvation + 2x Fatal Push, and that seems to be enough removal before sideboard. It's personal choice-- feel free to swap in your choice in its place. There are good arguments to include a third copy of Fatal Push for those who want to. In short, 1x Agonizing Remorse is a personal choice and not much more.

Thanks for the comment!

Yeah. Probably apt. Cute zombie support against certain matchups that are probably solved more efficiently. Lili was a countermeasure to control matchups but we don’t have the worst matchup against counter-based control strats anyway with our recursion.

Salvation was a counter to aggro but in practice, it is at its best by going over board stalls. But we can get past creature-based stalls with Death Baron and we have removal already. I do still want some removal to help bust up bigger threats that are stalling us so I tweaked the number of Murderous Riders. Still cute zombie support without being too cute. And additional planes walker punishing in these walker-heavy times.

I’ve swapped 2x Liliana, Untouched By Death and 2x Dark Salvation for 3x Thoughtseize and an additional Murderous Rider.
