dingusdingo on Non dredge gitrog deck.

This is a somewhat strange request. The interaction between Dakmor Salvage and The Gitrog Monster is extremely strong, and very cheap monetarily. You should consider running a couple dredge cards for value anyways, as hitting 2-3 extra draws off a dredge is an easy and once again cheap monetarily way to get ahead in card advantage.

To humor you though, here's what I'd probably run.

And from there, round it out with some efficient early game beaters, some spot removal, land ramp, and a bit of card draw.

Verbatiam on List of Color Pie Breaks/Bends

I love the list, only thing is I think its a little exagerated and could use a little trimming.

Hour of Eternity is the eternalize mechanic, which was primary in blue, it is similar to multiple other blue effects, such as dredge in how it exiles cards from a graveyard, or clone and it puts a copy of a creature onto the battlefield.

It That Rides as One  Flip (once it has been flipped to have that name) is colorless. Colourless who have often had access to all of the keywords it possesses

Shrouded Lore seems like a very black card, its the combination of returning something from the grave and forceing your opponent to "chose" something that benifits you, similar to Torment of Hailfire, Forbidden Ritual, and Tyrant's Choice

Avoid Fate: this card is the progenetor to cards they now print like Hapatra's Mark, Sheltering Word so I'm not sure if this should be considered a break or bend

Love the list, hope you like the suggestions

Spatialdebris Yes, I know. You Cauldron of Souls the relentless rats to have them stay alive after sacrificing them from Forbidden Ritual to clear their board or force them to take damage.

geekmp3 I hadn't considered Torment of Hailfire until now! Looks like it would work well with the Forbidden Ritual combo. Thanks for the suggestion!

If you're looking to make this really zombie tribal, you'll need the zombie lords. I see Lord of the Accursed and Diregraf Colossus (somewhat), but I'd recommend adding in Death Baron (he's a bit pricey for some people), Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief and Zombie Master. If you're looking to continue the discard subtheme, then Necrogen Mists will really hurt players, forcing them to essentially skip their draw steps. Additionally, I cannot recommend Phyrexian Arena enough...unless I'm recommending Necropotence aka the Skull aka the best card draw engine in the game. It does nonbo a bit with your discard theme, but eh, it's still Necro.

Thinking about ways to get rid of Demonic Pact is harder. The card's basically a flavor choice, and not even close to good in EDH, but I guess you could try trolly shenanigans like Phyrexian Negator, Smokestack, Possessed Portal (works hilariously well with Necro), Ratchet Bomb, All Is Dust, Claws of Gix (which is likely your best option), Curse of the Cabal (which is bad), Damping Engine shenanigans, and Forbidden Ritual. Aka bad cards and, in my opinion, if you're forcing yourself to play bad cards to justify playing a bad card which is in your deck because of flavor, you likely should just cut the offending card. Up to you, however.
