Death Baron Discussion

I personally like the lords for the buff and the abilities that they give to the other zombies. The deathtouch from Death Baron can be super useful.
I instantly got excited when I saw Champion of the Perished in the new set. I'll definitely get a set when they come out.
You've definitely given me something to think about with these suggestions.

I play a commander deck built around The Scarab God, and I have a ton of great recommendations. There's a few really fun directions you can take this, but flooding the board with zombie tokens and making them really beefy is a good bet. Here's some decent budget options, since you say you don't buy many cards:
- Undead Augur is also cheap to cast, and gets you drawing a lot of cards very quickly.
- Zombie Lords like Diregraf Captain, Lord of the Accursed, Death Baron, and many more are staples for zombie decks, though getting more than a few can get expensive.
- Wonder gives you a zombie air force whenever it's in the graveyard.
- Liliana's Mastery gets you two tokens and buffs your zombies.
- Necromancer's Stockpile is a good way to draw cards and get tokens on the board, and if you pitch anything that can recur it's doesn't even have much of a downside.
For some cards that aren't budget, if you want to eventually buy/trade for some really good zombie cards, I've got you covered there too:
- Cryptbreaker is cheap to cast, and is fantastic for getting tokens out and drawing cards. Note that the second ability ignores summoning sickness.
- Diregraf Colossus gets you a token whenever you cast a zombie.
- Army of the Damned creates thirteen zombie tokens if you can get the mana, and then does it again.
- Rooftop Storm makes your zombies free to cast.
- Endless Ranks of the Dead is a diet version of Liliana, the Last Hope's ult.
Best of luck in your future zombie-fueled games!

I think it would be a good idea to cut the Stitcher's Suppliers, Gurmag Anglers, and Rotting Regisaurs to add in Nantuko Husk and Plague Belcher. Those two cards in addition to Liliana, Untouched By Death's -3 + Shambling Ghast make an infinite combo that can win you the game. You could play around w/ the numbers of inclusion for the suggested cards. I'd probably want more Husks and fewer Belchers since the Husks have more utility overall. Plus you could add in more Shamblers, Lilianas, and maybe some Death Barons as well.

The effects of Orcus seems like they could be powerful with Zombies, but 3 equip cost is high. It's worth playtesting for sure, but not sure if you should cut another card for another artifact that's not a sac outlet...
Honestly, I don't think you need Orcus since you have other more mana efficient ways to give all Zombies deathtouch and other ways that are easier to make lots of 2/2 Zombie tokens. Being a three drop gives Orcus less impact the turn you play it because there's plays to make already for three mana that are similar to Orcus. Death Baron is a Zombie play for deathtouch while also making Varina 5/5. A nonZombie play is Buried Alive to get Wonder for true evasion.

Component Pouch: A worse Coalition Relic meant to annoy me, especially since I never liked D&D usage of low-cost components.
Midnight Pathlighter: "one or more", my old nemesis. Still, nonlegendary evasion is pretty good even in a format largely defined by the presence of legendary creatures, so you can probably get in a hit on more than one person.
wand of Orcus: "that many"? Ooof. Death Baron on a stick isn't bad either.
Rod of Absorption: Pretty neat, as it picks up both your stuff and other people's. Too reliable to be red I guess.
Phantom Steed: ... this feels very red? Guessing it's mostly so Minn can get more support.
Minn: Oh my, power? And it's any permanent? Also, lol, Rhystic Study synergy, no effort needed. (But you should probably still get a Brainstorm or something, those tokens seem pretty wild.) Easily my favorite card.
Thorough Investigation: here we go, the vaunted white advantage attempt, and it's not that bad, but Hand of Vecna is better imo, immediately giving draw, and white doesn't have that much Clue support on its to fuel the second ability.
Revivify: This feels like an annoying hoop to jump trough when you could just cast Eerie Interlude ? Not the board wipe resilience the format needs IMO
Radiant Solar: I like that pseudo-cycling ability, not sure about the cost tho.
Immovable Rod: Loses all abilities, and any permanent? And it triggers when you do untap? Not a bad source of repeatable pseudo-removal.
Nihiloor: Stealing commander gooo. Copying him is one way to get extra ETB triggers, but it's kinda annoying since you have to keep track of which Nihiloor has stolen which creature.
Wulfgar: Nooooooooo!!!!!! you can't just put Suns_Champion's Attackharmonicon Aurelia on a non-boros commander nooooooooooo. Anyway, jokes aside this is nice, I can't immediately grasp all the value TBH.
Klauth's Will: Feels kinda weird in a set with nonflying Dragons?
Dragonborn Champion: a source, not just combat damage from creatures. Might be kinda winmore when you're hitting people for that ammount tho.
Bag of Tricks: Ugh, this is way too swingy for my tastes.
Vengeful Ancestor: Yessss, hello Marisi, Breaker of the Coil ! The flying is appreciated too. Just note that it's symmetrical.
Klauth, Unrivaled Ancient: finally caught on Aggravated Assault eh?

Seeing you only play zombie, a lord like Lord of the Accursed or Death Baron might be a nice fit. I would also cut two lands out and put in some kind of fetch land seeing its a pretty aggro deck and your average cmc is pretty low, they also works pretty good with Bloodghast .

I left off part of my answer.
What do I imagine Skelly the Big doing? Let's start with free deathtouch, so we don't have to rely on Death Baron . Add some anti-grave-hate tech, something like ": Return target Skeleton creature card from exile to the battlefield/your hand." Finish it up with whatever passes for regenerate these days (for , at most), throw on some cost appropriate stats, and you got a card.
