Nice deck! If you're getting good results from Haunted Dead you'll probably also like Stitchwing Skaab ; it might even be slightly better since you get a 3-power flyer to go over the top while Prized Amalgam clogs up the ground. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant could also be nice as both a big threat and a way to keep your dredge engine going.

Mairsil, the Pretender and Mirror-Mad Phantasm mills your deck. Narcomoeba and Haunted Dead provide creatures for Dread Return to get Necrotic Ooze and then you can set up some combos from there. I forget the exact combos right now.

Also Hell's Caretaker means you can go off on your next upkeep.

I suggest you play Haunted Dead over Ghoulsteed. It does the same thing mechanically for less mana and puts the same amount of power on board, but it's more evasive and can chump block really well.

if this deck is for casual then i'd say its pretty alright for a fun break from the norm. Only 10 cards short of a commander deck too if you want to go that route. But if you're looking for more competitiveness, I'd say to do the following:

The first thing we need to do before anything, is to figure out the strategy we're going for. Obviously a token based liliana deck is way out of reasonable budgets. The blue you added does give me an idea for a control based zombie deck.

So the first thing to do is remove the cards above 60 that we wouldn't need, along with cards that will don't either assist or protect our strategies. I would start by removing the following: 2 - Advanced Stitchwing. 2 - Certain Death. 1 - Collective Brutality. 1 - Corrupt. 1 - Corrupted Roots. 2 - Disentomb. 1 - Doom Blade. 1 - Essence Harvest. 1 - Gnawing Zombie. 1 - Grixis Slavedriver. 1 - Grixis Grimblade. 1 - Hunted Ghoul. 1 - Haunted Dead. 3 - Ingenious Skaab. 4 - Laboratory Brute. 1 - Lamplighter of Selhoff. 1 - Maalfeld Twins. 2 - Macabre Waltz. 2 - Midnight Recovery. 1 - Mistvein Borderpost. 1 - Moan of the Unhallowed. 2 - Paranoid Delusions. 1 - Polluted Dead. 2 - Psychic Strike. 1 - Recover. 1 - Rise from the Grave. 1 - Scrapskin Drake. 1 - Shambling Attendants. 1 - Sibsig Host. 1 - Sibsig Muckdraggers. 1 - Sidisi's Pet. 1 - Sip of Hemlock. 1 - Skinrender. 1 - Spineless Thug. 1 - Stitched Mangler. 2 - Thraben Foulbloods. 1 - Strange Augmentation. 1 - Undead Executioner. 1 - Zombie Outlander. 15 - Swamp. 10 - Island.

It IS Quite a lot, but it's because we need to make room for the cards that'll make the bulk of our strategy, not to mention there are cheaper, better alternatives to most of these cards (lands were removed because the mana base will be changed later). With these cards taken out, that leaves us with the following: 3 - Cemetery Recruitment. 1 - Ghastly Conscription. 1 - Sign in Blood. 1 - Graf Harvest. 1 - Rooftop Storm. 2 - Gavony Unhallowed. 1 - Jhessian Zombies. 1 - Vedalken Ghoul.

these are pretty linearly focused for an effective strategy. to fluff out the rest of the cards for the deck, I'd recommend:

+1 - Cemetery Recruitment. +3 - Sign in Blood. +4 - Mana Leak. +3 - Duress. +3 - Vedalken Ghoul. +3 - Jhessian Zombies. +1 - Rooftop Storm. +4 - Go for the Throat. +4 - Rotting Rats. +3 - Claim / Fame.

Magnanimous on What Are Some Of Your …

In rough order of how much I like them:

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Spreading Algae

Flagstones of Trokair and any sacrifice effect, like Smallpox , Elvish Reclaimer , and Crop Rotation .

In a similar vein, Brought Back and evoke spells like Shriekmaw and Mulldrifter .

Sundial of the Infinite + Glorious End or Pact of Negation effects. The Sundial can end the turn and counter the ability that would make you lose the game.

I recently saw a deck based around Haunted Dead that played Prized Amalgam + other graveyard shenanigans, Fiery Temper , and Elder Deep-Fiend in Pioneer, so that was pretty cool and synergistic although not a standard two card combo.

Young Pyromancer / Monastery Mentor / Goblinslide + Blood Funnel .

Don't forget the Haunted Dead for the Prized Amalgam interaction. :)

I actually haven't been able to test the deck out quite yet since I currently can't afford to buy all the cards on MTGO (my MTG funds are going towards the upcoming Command Fest right now), so this is just a preliminary build that I want to try out when I am able.

Delve creatures were definitely on my radar initially, but they usually have trouble working well with cards like Haunted Dead and Prized Amalgam . After I'm able to try the deck out, I'll definitely reconsider whether I want the delve cards in the list.
