Your land count is pretty low compared to your average CMC. I suggest no less than 37 for non-competitive lists. Also, I would run some more rocks. Jet Medallion Charcoal Diamond Fellwar Stone for starters. Unstable Obelisk for the upside of getting rid of permanents that Black has trouble with.

Here are a few of my favorite zombies. Gravespawn Sovereign Helldozer Noosegraf Mob Dread Wight Grotesque Hybrid Phyrexian Delver and Undead Warchief

@OrgasmAndTea Ok, first, I love your username. Yeah Altar is fantastic in multiplayer edh, in fact it's one of the wincons in my Varina and Jhoira deck. I don't think it would be great in this deck however if that's what you were wondering. The main strategy is to mill myself, so I don't want to spend extra resources or card slots to start milling others, especially since Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre became a thing. This deck also treats 2/2 black zombies as fodder for cards like Ashnod's Altar , Victimize , Phyrexian Plaguelord , etc, so that's why I don't run Parallel Lives , Graveborn Muse , Gravespawn Sovereign , etc.

You should check out one of my favorite zombie decks by ElspethOfValeron ( here ). His primer is a great read, in fact his deck's primer influenced how I organized my primer on this deck.

There's a couple of old zombie cards that go really well with Gisa. There's Zombie Master , Vengeful Dead , Gempalm Polluter , and the nastiest one of them all, Gravespawn Sovereign . That card wins games and can reanimate fatties to sacrifice and resacrifice.

self-reanimate + Dread Return + Gravespawn Sovereign or other similar piece is ok.

Are you looking for creature cards that do what Rise from the Grave then I think there are a few Demon of Dark Schemes Geth, Lord of the Vault

I think the rest are tapped type Gravespawn Sovereign and Agadeem Occultist

This is the only thing I could find but there may be some more

Hmm maybe:

If I remember correctly you also didn't want to use counterspells in this deck correct?

Hey multimedia, thanks again for your help. I have removed some of the cards you suggested that made sense to me in order to speed up the deck a bit. I ended up removing Austere Command for Cleansing Nova as it provides most of the same options while being 1 CMC less. I also removed costly token generating cards such as Necromancer's Covenant and From Under the Floorboards and the monster stealer Grave Betrayal. I also removed Gravespawn Sovereign to reduce the CMC and remove the last bit of creature steal in the deck. I added Liliana, the Last Hope, Graveyard Marshal, Nantuko Husk, and Shepherd of Rot in to reduce the cost in the deck. I was able to drop the deck from 3.7 CMC to 3.5. Not sure if said improvement will be noticeable during gameplay, but we shall see! Thanks again man I really do appreciate it.

Yea and before I forget, I avoided cards like Living End, Living Death, and Patriarch's Bidding because of the off chance that I help my opponent. In my 5 man pod, I'm not the only one who rocks grave recursion. Buddy of mine has a wicked good dredge deck that I hate.
