Liliana, Death's Majesty Discussion
2 weeks ago
If you can stuff Liliana, Untouched By Death in there, it gets 5 of your creatures back on its own. 2 of which are combo pieces for you, another two get cards(one just mills them), and the last is Fleshbag. It also mills 3 on uptick. Granted, its pretty niche, but I think its enough to warrant a maybeboard slot at minimum. The other one being Liliana, Death's Majesty as it makes a token and mills two on uptick, plus reanimates single target on downtick, while not actually using a muldrotha slot to recast a creature!

Hey, well done with the precon upgrade and very nice formated deck description. You're a good deck builder with the budget that you have, choosing the better expensive price cards (Demonic, Gravecrawler, Acererak, Cryptbreaker and Watery). If on a budget I don't think Tainted Adversary and Ebondeath, Dracolich are worth their prices.
You're very honest about the power level here, not exaggerating and saying power level 8 to make your deck seem better than it really is. Believe me, I hear this all the time, players insisting that the power level of their deck is very high while playing $100 deck with only 30 lands and Guildgates...
In the combo section of the description you don't mention Gravecrawler and it's a pretty important Zombie for combos especially with Rooftop. He needs a sac outlet with Rooftop to go infinite which all you need is Carrion Feeder. Gravecrawler is the most powerful Zombie printed because its just so damn mana efficient. He deserves his own section in the description since his interaction with Wilhert is excellent, giving you a Zombie on your turn to repeatedly sac at your end steps to draw and create a decayed Zombie for one mana.
You clearly have deck building skills, but there's some cards here that could be upgraded even on a budget. You've removed some of the better cards from the precon that can give you repeatable value especially more draw and Zombie tokens.
- Undead Augur: very good Zombie since it triggers to draw whenever a Zombie token dies.
Midnight Reaper: another source or repeatable draw when nontokens die.
Gisa and Geralf: don't underestimate how valuable it is to be able repeatedly cast even one Zombie on your turn from your graveyard. Pair Augur with Gisa/Geralf and Wilhelt to repeatedly draw two cards/create a decayed Zombie on your turns for two mana. Pair Gisa/Geralf with Fleshbag Marauder and Wilhelt to repeatedly wreck your opponents creatures for three mana and create a decayed Zombie.
Fleshbag Marauder: making all opponents have to sac a creature they control is really good in multiplayer Commander especially on a three drop Zombie who can be recurred or reanimated.
Curse of the Restless Dead: you can curse yourself to have more control over this making it a repeatable Zombie source by playing lands. Honestly, this card is better than Endless Ranks of the Dead at consistency of creating Zombies since there's no lame restriction like Ranks has and you'll have lands.
Liliana, Death's Majesty: all her loyalty abilities are good especially her -7 which is not difficult to get to and in casual it can wreck, be a game winning effect.
Some changes to consider:
- Carrion Feeder --> Rank Officer
- Undead Augur --> Eternal Skylord
- Gisa and Geralf --> Enter the God-Eternals
- Curse of the Restless Dead --> Diregraf Horde
- Midnight Reaper --> Josu Vess, Lich Knight
- Fleshbag Marauder --> Risen Executioner
- Liliana, Death's Majesty --> Icon of Ancestry
- Mystic Sanctuary --> Mistvault Bridge
Poppet Stitcher Flip is a powerful new card for Zombies and Poppet Factory is busted with Wilhert because it removes decayed from Zombies letting you repeatedly sac a decayed Zombie to create another. Fallen Ideal is an underrated gem in Commander with token strategies because it gives the enchanted creature flying and it's a sac outlet.
Enchant Wilhert and then sac your Zombie horde to attack for lethal Commander damage at an opponent. If you created a bunch of decayed Zombies potentially attack again for lethal Commander damage to another opponent on your next turn. Pair Ideal with Factory to attack for lethal Commander damage on your turn every turn.
Good luck with your deck.

I've decided to make more than one list but each one should be helpful to you in the future. Also, you don't need to put in all these cards. There are too many here for you to fit in the deck.
Liliana, Death's Majesty (can be a board wipe but don't count on it), Liliana, Dreadhorde General (also doubles as amazing card draw), Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Liliana, the Last Hope, and Liliana, Untouched By Death (has a removal ability).
Zombie tribal cards:
Shepherd of Rot, Lord of the Accursed, Risen Executioner, Relentless Dead, Field of the Dead, Undead Augur (also card advantage), Havengul Runebinder, Stitcher Geralf, Gleaming Overseer, Call to the Grave (rude card), Endless Ranks of the Dead (my favorite zombie tribal card), Graf Harvest, Graveborn Muse (also card advantage), and Josu Vess, Lich Knight.
Never/Return is zombie themed removal.
Necromantic Selection is a zombie themed board wipe.
I hope this helps!

if you wanted to go more reanimation then, Angel of Despair, Angel of Serenity and maybe Angel of Sanctions, should be the main core of the deck, with spells like Unburial Rites, Collective Brutality and maybe mid rangey cards like The Eldest Reborn, Elspeth Conquers Death, Liliana, Death's Majesty

I love the deck!
I've really wanted to mess around with Tombstone Stairwell, but I have yet to get my hands on a copy.
I'm curious how Alhammarret's Archive and Bone Miser have worked for you. I tried the Archive for a bit, but found myself wishing I just had another zombie to slam more often than not, but admittedly I cut it pretty early in testing. Miser is something I've considered adding because it synergizes so well with Varina, but I'm skeptical that it's impactful enough at 5 mana.
I feel like Sorin could easily be swapped out for Liliana, Death's Majesty. It reanimates anything for -3 and it's +1 advances your Living Death/Zombie Apocalypse shenanigans while netting a zombie. For 1 extra that seems a little more on the nose.
My build tosses in The Scarab God as well because it's just bonkers if you go wide and nobody has a board wipe on hand. It can single handedly take over games and can get you back on board after the aforementioned board wipe.

I was looking for a deck that had Pod in it, looked at the points spread I would want and found this gem with the exact points spread that I wanted.
I have made some changes, visible in RecSurPod, chiefly removing the one-mana discards, adding an important new addition in Fiend Artisan which is yet another pod effect and another very good creature in Soulherder.
I am throughly confused by the inclusion of Chainweb Aracnir. What role does it serve? a more useful creature like Scavenging Ooze or additional searcher like Recruiter of the Guard would be more useful. Current changes I have made:
- Removed Paradise Druid (a bit too much ramp), Brazen Borrower (does not work well with pod effects), Nimble Obstructionist (does not work well with pod effects), Duress, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek (the discard suite feels very hit-or-miss)
- Added Fiend Artisan (yet-another-pod-effect), Elder Gargaroth (this is basically a titan at 5 mana), Tortured Existence (both pet card, but also works with the main plan of recursion), Liliana, Death's Majesty (fits the recursion theme very well), Phyrexian Metamorph (I wanted access to an extra clone effect) and Soulherder (one of the best three drops for this deck).

Eldrazi Monument looks busted as hell I love it! I actually have Liliana, Death's Majesty and Midnight Reaper coming in the mail for this deck. I might consider Smokestack and Contamination, but this deck can be rather slow at times since it's definitely a snowball effect. I'm a little worried it would take longer to become an actual threat. I've been on the fence about God-Eternal Bontu all week. I like her a lot and she's a Zombie so she will get buffed by all the lords, but again the sacrificing permanents is what worries me. If there's a way I can pump out Zombies even faster I think this are all a must in.
