Forsake the Worldly Discussion

Desolation Twin = Too slow, I would remove it.

Angelic Accord: Not enough lifegain in the deck to make it worth.

Path of Bravery: Meh, mostly you will be attacking with a creature or two so not worth. Only at the very end will you swing with a lot, but at the very end your life total doesn't matter too much.

Embalmed creatures are zombies so stuff like Eternal Skylord works really well.

Cloudblazer is a great target for copy target creature spells.

Lazotep Plating Hexproof is a great save something card and you get a little bonus with the amass.

Forsake the Worldly Great removal plus cycling option. A personal favorite.

Fact or Fiction Great because you get to search the top 5 and get a few into hand. Sneaky trick though is that you can embalm any creatures that go into the grave. It's a win win.

Embalmer's Tools I think it makes embalm cost 1 less and remember that embalm creatures are zombies so you can mill others or yourself to get more creatures to embalm. Almost like drawing a card if you mill an embalm creature.

Rogue's Gloves Equip to a token then make it unblockable with your commander to draw a free card on your turn. Same with Staggering InsightCuriosityCurious Obsession

StopShot on OVERplayed cards?

I’m shook. Fragmentize is overplayed? I’m the only one I know who seriously uses Fragmentize in my play circles. Fragmentize I would agreed if it wasn’t for the fact that cheap mono-white artifact-enchantment removal is so limited. If I was playing Green I would agree that Fragmentize is too niche, but if you’re playing semi-competitively without green then your best cheap answers are Disenchant, Seal of Cleansing, Revoke Existence and Fragmentize. That’s an efficient removal spell every 1 in 25 cards. Only if Wizards printed two more functional copies of Disenchant would I then start considering to axe my Fragmentize. Good removal should be cheaper than the threats you’re trying to remove with it and I’m not going to be running any Forsake the Worldly just to remove a 1-mana graveyard-hate card. Not hitting a Conjurer's Closet sucks, but there are many other cards I’d rather remove first before the Closet and all of those more pressing cards happen to be CMC four or less.

You'll also want some removal for your deck. Cards that would be good for this are Swords to Plowshares , Valorous Stance , Condemn , and Settle the Wreckage to keep the big creatures away from you.

There is also artifact/enchantment removal you should have like Crush Contraband , Aura of Silence which can also slow your opponents down, and Forsake the Worldly which can also be cycled away for 1 card.

Some board wipes can also be very good like Cleansing Nova , Fumigate , Mass Calcify this one costs a lot of mana so I wouldn't recommend it too much , Rout which has the advantage of being able to be used at instant speed. There is also Martial Coup which if you put enough mana into it then you'll have some soldiers on board after everything is over.

i personally prefer Forsake the Worldly over Return to Dust because honestly do you ever cast the latter at instant speed?

i would also recommend Consulate Crackdown. favorite underrated card in the color. glad to see white on the rise :)

When you already play Exquisite Blood you should consider to play the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond-combo.

If you want to take this deck to the next level, you should consider the following cards:

The cycling sub-theme seems like a lot more investments than payoffs.

Gempalm Polluter feels like a nice zombie-themed include. Same for Lurching Rotbeast and Moaning Wall. Undead Gladiator also synergizes with your Bone Miser.

Running removal options like Clear/Forsake the Worldly, Expunge,Cast Out and Akroma's Vengeance might be useful. Your deck looks defensive, so maybe Choking Tethers or Djeru's Renunciation?

To bolster your control, maybe Compelling Argument or Countervailing Winds?

Scarab Feast and Rapid Decay answer decks that want you to mill them or use their own graveyards. Unearth gets low-cost zombies or Phantasmal Image back.

Maybe Abandoned Sarcophagus, while you're at it? And if you're cycling so much, throw in Fluctuator.
