Idk who this Willy is, but no you.

This deck is a really a mono black build that you happen to run blue for Diregraf Captain . The way I see it you can either keep with the build you're going for, which to me seems like mono black, or you can go a much different dimir amass path with cards like Vizier of the Scorpion , Gleaming Overseer , Lazotep Plating ,

Let's assume you do mono black, then let's start with creatures. Brain Gorgers and Stromgald Crusader are garbage, Tomebound Lich is mostly used in dedicated reanimator decks, and Extremely Slow Zombie is a card from a joke set, so take those all out, along with Diregraf Captain . That's 11 out. Add 2 Murderous Rider , 3 Liliana's Reaver , 2 Undead Augur , 3 Diregraf Ghoul .

For noncreature spells, take out Negate . The best mono black removal is probably Walk the Plank . So take out Go for the Throat and Ultimate Price for 3. Gravepurge and Return from Extinction can be replaced with 3 Call of the Death-Dweller . Take out Bontu's Monument for another copy of Liliana, Untouched By Death or vise-versa. Take out Necromancer's Stockpile , I just don't think it's that good. For a five drop $1-2 slot, Open the Graves is better than Call to the Grave .

If you followed all that you should have 6 slots left. Add one more Swamp so you're at 22. Then maybe 3 Dread Wanderer , 2 Fleshbag Marauder , and flex card like Risen Executioner or something fun.

I think Diregraf Ghoul is pretty weak. I would suggest Smuggler's Copter or Gutterbones over it.

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

I would suggest dropping 2 Diregraf Ghoul(Leaving you still with 10 1 drops) and adding 2 more Thoughtseize. Depending on your meta, I would also suggest Fatal Push over Spark Harvest. Also adding 1 or 2 Castle Locthwain over swamps costs nothing and may win you a game or 2. 2-4 Liliana, Untouched By Death would help with your late game. You may be able to cut Dark Salvation for it.

I like the deck! The Zombie tribe is one of my favorites.

After some testing I noticed that Diregraf Colossus was a bit slow, so I cut one of them and a land to make room for some Diregraf Ghoul s to help lower the curve to a point where 22 lands seems fine.

Gravecrawler Seems like it is just better than your 1 drops as it can come back with Diregraf Ghoul and Geralf's Messenger

Hey, I'm back again! Carrion Feeder is legal in Modern now and it's a waaaaay better card than Diregraf Ghoul (especially alongside Gravecrawler ), so I suggest you replace them with it.
