PHATJER, so I know this is kind of well...late but another creature you should include in your build is anything with Undying such as Geralf's Messenger or Butcher Ghoul to accompany Yawgmoth, Thran Physician instead of Reassembling Skeleton .

hungry000 I agree that Carrion Feeder sounds like a great choice - though i’d think that Cryptbreaker is far stronger than Geralf's Messenger in zombie tribal - it just lets you draw soo many free cards

Carrion Feeder is an amazing card with Gravecrawler and Geralf's Messenger and is just good in general. I recommend you add 4 of them in place of 4 Diregraf Ghoul / Dreadmalkin .

Well cheap-decent creatures I’d suggest are Kitesail Freebooter and Geralf's Messenger . I also think upping the number of Gatekeeper of Malakir you’re running would be worth it.

Already +1 a while back. Love the deck. Drown in Sorrow is great in our deck. Helps in a ton of matchups. Plus it hilarious to drop when we have a couple Geralf's Messenger out. Cheers.

Maybe add some more creatures that recur themselves like Bloodghast , Gravecrawler , Geralf's Messenger and Reassembling Skeleton . Bontu loves sac fodder and sac fodder you can reuse is probably where you want to be.

First off, nice username. Have you had any trouble casting Geralf's Messenger ? If the triple black is hard, you could try running one or two Twilight Mire .

I like the inclusion of Geralf's Messenger main. It's something I want to try. I also really like the Fulminators in the board.

I want your thoughts on a few things I noticed about your list: Have you had good results with running the full playset of Fulminators? One thing that my Mono B Deck has struggled with is opposing planeswalkers. What is your strategy for dealing with them? Finally, the deck has a fairly high curve, do you think that 23 lands could be optimal?
