I can see fortelling it to set it up for a Carrion Feeder / Gravecrawler chain but that kind of feels like what Diregraf Colossus is already doing without the benefit of the tribal body itself.

I like the deck and I ran a Grimgrin, Corpse-Born deck before and I think the Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Gravecrawler, and Rooftop Storm combo can be really good just as a random combo in the deck. Also a really good addition in this deck would probably be Diregraf Colossus. It works really good in the combo and can just generate so much value if they just leave him there.

MarrecoMTG Good to hear you like the deck! Don't underestimate yours too! Great build +1. Strionic Resonator is a great utility card and you can use it with so many other cards in the deck besides The Scarab God, Undead Augur, an extra card draw, Diregraf Colossus an extra tapped zombie, Loyal Subordinate another 3 life, etc. Lithoform Engine is a great card, but you need a Dramatic Reversal type effect to make it really effective. It also costs more to cast and activate, total, instead of if you choose the "Strionic" effect the first time.

Hey, a card that's good with Zombies and blue is Wonder to give your Zombie horde and Scarab flying. Combine it with Buried Alive which can tutor for and put up to three creatures into your graveyard. One can be Wonder and others can be creatures to embalm with Scarab or be reanimated or recurred.

Gravecrawler is a very good Zombie and another creature that goes well with Buried. Phyrexian Altar is an expensive artifact sac outlet that combos with Gravecrawler + Diregraf Captain or Plague Belcher. Crawler also combos with Diregraf Colossus to make infinite Zombie tokens.

You don't need Altar to combo with Crawler it just makes the combos infinite. A sac outlet such as Carrion Feeder can replace Altar which would let you sac and then cast Crawler as many times equal to the amount of black mana you have. You can get much wanted repeatable value especially draw from Undead Augur, Midnight Reaper, Ayara, First of Locthwain and Gravecrawler with any sac outlet.

Windfall (It's not $3.90, it's $1) and Whispering Madness are powerful wheel draw spells in Commander. Madness can be repeatable with cipher. These spells can get creatures into your own or more importantly your opponents' graveyards to then embalm them with Scarab. Underground River is another Dimir dual land that can ETB untapped.

Good luck with your deck.

This deck definitely needs Putrid Imp, both for the zombie count and also the free & infinite discard capability on Turn 1 to really pour things into your graveyard for a quick & powerful Diregraf Colossus cast Turn 3.

It'd be a beautiful fit here imo (He's one of my favorite older cards to abuse...haha)

I wish Frankenstein's Monster wasn't so unplayable, because it would be a real flavor-win for you to get it out and have it not be rubbish. It looks at Diregraf Colossus and knows it's inadequacy.

Have you thought about a side-business of using Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and some of the non-garbage zombie knights to recycle? Buried Alive can set you up with Haakon, Foulmire Knight, and Midnight Reaper, which would be probably be viable if you ever want another backup. All 3 are still zombies, and Haakon lets you use Nameless Inversion as repeated removal, since it's a knight.

Hey DasButch, I like your deck! I have a few suggestions -

Rotting Regisaur is a big zombie that helps discard your Crawlers and Ghasts. Plus you can sac it if you want to stop discarding.

Demonic Embrace may be an option since you are self-milling. Another possibility is Liliana, the Last Hope, she self-mills and can generate bodies for sac’ing later.

Soul Stair Expedition seems too slow. You want to keep stuff in the grave to boost your Diregraf Colossus, which I think you should 4 of. Why not 1-2 Unearth instead? Creature goes straight to the battlefield. Also Witch's Cottage and Castle Locthwain are good utility lands.

I think a couple Fatal Push will complement the Tragic Slips too. More removal will help against super fast creature decks. :)

I would lower the curve a lot and take out cards that cost more than 4 mana. I would also drop the blue from the deck.

Here are some cards that you might like:Carrion Feeder,Gravecrawler,Cryptbreaker,Graveyard Marshal,Undead Augur,Lazotep Reaver,Relentless Dead,Death Baron,Zombie Infestation, and Diregraf Colossus.

Nice job for your first deck from scratch. It's probably a lot better than mine. +1
