Dreadhorde Invasion

Enchantment

At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose 1 life and amass 1. (Put a +1/+1 counter on an Army you control. If you don't control one, create a 0/0 black Zombie Army creature token first.)

Whenever a Zombie token you control with power 6 or greater attacks, it gains lifelink until end of turn.

I co-sign almost everything ldvatwa said, but I'm here to take it a step further..

I agree on cutting Leaden Myr, Tree of Perdition, Triskaidekaphobia, and Skeletal Vampire. I'm also wondering why Sever the Bloodline is here; do your friends play a lot of tokens too?

Adding Bontu's Monument is a good idea, but have you also thought about Mycosynth Wellspring & Ichor Wellspring as well?

You lack only one of the upkeep token generators in Mono-, that is Dreadhorde Invasion. Despite that, you otherwise have all the token generation in the world for . A couple of stax pieces like a Contamination & Smokestack, etc., could easily slide into here without changing very much at all..

Speaking of Mono-, is there any particular reason you are not running Necropotence and/or Bolas's Citadel?

Finally your land situation. I think you will want to cut down on your non-basic utility lands. Even though you are running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, you will want to maximize your Swamp-count to consistently get the most out of Cabal Coffers (and goes triple for Cabal Stronghold), or if you even want to consistently play your Everglades & Lake of the Dead!

I would cut Barren Moor, Hagra Broodpit  Flip, Malakir Mire  Flip, Phyrexian Tower, and Vesuva; all for basic Snow-Covered Swamps... and maybe a Karn's Bastion since you are running several Planeswalkers..

Hey, well done so far upgrading the precon, nice Phyrexian Altar.

Some cards from the precon to consider adding:

Talisman of Dominance ETB untapped to make either color. Another mana rock upgrade is Dimir Signet replacing Charcoal Diamond. Dreadhorde Invasion is a repeatable source of Zombie and Eternal Skylord is a much worse Hordewing Skaab. Curse of the Restless Dead is a more reliable repeatable source of Zombies than Undead Alchemist.

Pact of the Serpent is powerful tribal card for Zombies. Battle at the Bridge needs lots more artifacts to be playable. Zombie Apocalypse is powerful tribal card for Zombies especially when your Commander sacs Zombies to draw. Patriarch's Bidding is another mass reanimation tribal Zombie card. Dread Summons needs a ton of mana paid into it to be decent since you have no control over milling your own or opponent creatures.

Gisa and Geralf can be repeatable cast of Zombies from your graveyard which can do more than Ebondeath, Dracolich. Feed the Swarm is helpful to have enchantment removal in Dimir. Liliana, Death's Majesty can be repeatable Zombies and her other abilities are good too. She does more than Liliana's Mastery, but honestly you don't need either one of these cards since there's better five drops here or could add.

The more basic Islands you can replace with Dimir dual lands the better the manabase will be because black mana is much important than blue. Lots of basic Islands makes it more difficult to cast heavy black spells. Tainted Isle and Choked Estuary are playable lands in the precon that care about Swamps and you have a lot of Swamps.

Good luck with your deck.

Atuva on Budget Zombie Tribal

Great looking budget deck, even after 5 years. I'd love to see an updated version with asztisanyi's suggestions and maybe even some newer cards. Ghoulish Procession comes to mind as it converts all non-token creatures into extra zombie fodder when they die, plus they're guaranteed to feed into Quest for the Gravelord if it's on the board. Effectively turning each non-token creature that dies into 2 or more counters with the potential for trades and/or an addtional 2 or more damage. Dreadhorde Invasion could also be a fairly decent zombie token generator, asuming you're not worried about losing life, and if the token is left unchecked it'll start regaining that life in the mid to late game. It also opens up the door to Amass cards. Untility cards like Callous Dismissal, Lazotep Plating, and Soul Diviner.

Dreadhorde Invasion is another steady token generator

Looking pretty solid so far! I suggest Animation Module with the Basri's Lieutenant , Good-Fortune Unicorn (Dreadhorde Invasion, Master Biomancer... ) package.

Also Rishkar, Peema Renegade is a more reliable Katilda, Dawnhart Prime in my opinion.

Perhaps my take on reyhan holds some inspiration. It also has a written primer about the cards I mentioned.

No wait Dreadhorde Invasion works because the token itself doesn't have abilities and it gains lifeline when it attacks right?

Oof waitaminute.... would Dreadhorde Invasion not mesh with a flipped Poppet Stitcher  Flip?

Sedgemoor Witch might work instead?

On its own its okay, but making marginal cards good is all about maximising upside.

For poppet to make it to playable, that 'loses abilites and becomes 3/3' needs to be a massive upside, ideally also using zombie subtype for effect.

There might be something to build with eldrazi spawn or similar 0 power creature tokens (who would get +3 power from the flip) with +1/+1 counters on them. Tokens with defender/sacrifice printed on them are another option.

Armies are good because of that, with Dreadhorde Invasion pointing to a 'you're meant to sacrifice the tokens' value/midrange zombie list.

Kher Keep & Springjack Pasture aren't gonna rock the world, Hard Evidence and Teyo, the Shieldmage are also just fine, and a lot of the 'sacrifice at end of turn' have that printed on the card, not the tokens. It'll make build around tricky. Satyr's Cunning looks good, but its just one card.

I feel like there is something there, but its gonna take some weird interactions with something like Kasmina, Enigma Sage's -x to get it playable.
