You mentioned having issues with your mana - is that not having enough lands, or not having the right color lands? With the curve as high as it is, I would recommend adding more ramp in the form of either mana rocks or cards like Land Tax or Archaeomancer's Map. I would also focus on some more high impact and efficient cards to put you in a better position. While Krav and Regna are both powerful cards, you would be in a better position with something like Viscera Seer and Liliana, Dreadhorde General/Lolth, Spider Queen. Skullclamp is one of the most powerful cards you can play in a deck like this. I would also look at removing some cards like Sengir, the Dark Baron in favor of more versatile cards. While Sengir can quickly become big, it doesn't really do much else for your deck in conjunction with your commander.

Let me know what you think of each suggestion...

Bitterblossom/Reassembling Skeleton + Contamination = Fun times

You really need more token production such as...

Grave Titan - ETB and attack token production

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip - Easy to trigger, creates a token to defend itself

Liliana, Dreadhorde General > Lili Ves - Static ability/draw, token production, removal and wincon

More Artifact ramp would help such as....

Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Jeweled Lotus all put in work.

Additional Draw would really help like....

Syphon Mind - Cheap $, each opponent discard 1, you draw 3. Good value all around

Necropotence - When you need cards, you get cards.

Phyrexian Arena - Simple and easy

Read the Bones - Least impactful but the scry is really clutch


Yawgmoth's Will - Best card black can buy. Don't sleep on this

Dismember - I've found it useful, I like the ability to kill most creatures with 1 mana

The Meathook Massacre - While unsure if this is the best fit, it seems to go well with your tokens. Plus, the lifegain helps offset some of black's lifeloss cards

Damnation - When things need to die

I have several ideas of cuts if you would like to hear them. Looking forward to your response

I feel like you could benefit a bit more for card advantage and or control a Liliana, Dreadhorde General Could start up a good engine for card advantage and removal might even end the game if you can throw in proliferate triggers with stuff like Contagion Clasp or trigger aggro on a player while setting yourself up with more zombies with Curse of Disturbance

Oh and Liliana, Dreadhorde General is probably one of the best card to put in.

I tried building this deck a couple times. I never had a version I was satisfied with. I think you need more control options and ways to sac your commander perhaps Plumb the Forbidden. It's easiest pro is a death trigger that board wipes. Perhaps Gift of Immortality. More ramp even treasure based might be better then some of the big but due to cmc almost never playable creatures. Reanimation or other ways to reduce your commander's cost would probably help. Liliana, Dreadhorde General sac outlet and if you make a ton of zombie you draw a ton.

Thanks for checking out the deck! Urborg Justice seems like a fun card, but like you said I already have two Grave Pact effects as well as Liliana, Dreadhorde General which will make everyone sac two when she comes down.

Nice build!

Only suggestions I'd have is maybe Oversold Cemetery and Liliana, Dreadhorde General ,though tough to place/ swap in.

Maybe the Journey to Eternity  Flip (I've personally had terrible luck with it lmao) for the Oversold Cemetery ? At five mana to activate the land ability, I always found I wanted to be doing other things for 5 mana where as the Oversold allows for a bit of regurgitation from your grave to hand for no mana and rewards you for putting things into the grave, which you are doing anyways.

Liliana allows for more "death for draw" but is a bit harder to place into the deck. She also becomes a target for other players, eating removal and taking some heat off things you are wanting to do by changing others focus.

Otherwise, this looks fun, again nice build.
