Liliana's Reaver Discussion

I'd work on lowering your curve a bit. 4x Champion of the Perished would help there, along with maybe adding 2 more Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia (Which also triggers Champion). Cryptbreaker is another powerful 1 drop zombie.
Liliana's Reaver is a 4 drop that relies on pushing combat damage through to do its thing. 3 copies is definitely too much. Thief of Sanity isn't even a zombie, and it's a 3 drop, why are there 3 of them. Similarly, Dreamstealer isn't even a zombie either and doesn't synergize super well with the deck. Yes it has eternalize but it costs 6 mana so.
Dark Salvation and Fatal Push are really nice removal spells, which can replace Infernal Grasp. Even with X=0, the former can kill most creatures, and if you have extra mana you can make some zombies too. For the latter, revolt shouldn't be too hard to trigger either with all your zombies running around.

I think you could definitely lose Liliana's Reaver and throw in Gravecrawler I know he's expensive but he's absolutely busted in an aristocrats deck, which is what Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver is BEGGING to be.

Hey, well done on a budget so far for a first tribal deck. You have a nice tribal concept going and your card sense is good especially if you're a beginner.
You have 19 cards too many, some cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:
- 3x Snow-Covered Swamp
- 2x Snow-Covered Island
- Bloodsoaked Altar
- Sanitarium Skeleton
- Marang River Skeleton
- Caged Zombie
- Severed Legion
- Circular Logic
- Gisa's Bidding
- Desecrated Tomb
- Grave Scrabbler
- Liliana's Reaver
- Eternal Skylord
- Narfi, Betrayer King
- Liliana's Steward
- Necromancer's Covenant
42 lands is a lot and there's also six ramp sources. You could cut 5-6 lands and be fine. I don't think adding Snow-Covered basic lands is worth it just for Narfi, Betrayer King . There's much better five drops and three drops here than Narfi to have to worry about having three Snow lands to cast him from your graveyard. The Snow duals that are an Island are good to keep because they help to activate Wonder . The other cards to consider cutting are simply not as good as other cards or Zombies at the same mana cost or have similar effects.
I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

Idk who this Willy is, but no you.
This deck is a really a mono black build that you happen to run blue for Diregraf Captain . The way I see it you can either keep with the build you're going for, which to me seems like mono black, or you can go a much different dimir amass path with cards like Vizier of the Scorpion , Gleaming Overseer , Lazotep Plating ,
Let's assume you do mono black, then let's start with creatures. Brain Gorgers and Stromgald Crusader are garbage, Tomebound Lich is mostly used in dedicated reanimator decks, and Extremely Slow Zombie is a card from a joke set, so take those all out, along with Diregraf Captain . That's 11 out. Add 2 Murderous Rider , 3 Liliana's Reaver , 2 Undead Augur , 3 Diregraf Ghoul .
For noncreature spells, take out Negate . The best mono black removal is probably Walk the Plank . So take out Go for the Throat and Ultimate Price for 3. Gravepurge and Return from Extinction can be replaced with 3 Call of the Death-Dweller . Take out Bontu's Monument for another copy of Liliana, Untouched By Death or vise-versa. Take out Necromancer's Stockpile , I just don't think it's that good. For a five drop $1-2 slot, Open the Graves is better than Call to the Grave .

I just went through your deck real quickly and tried to pick out some cards I thought didn't quite fit with the theme of the deck. Torbran, Thane of Red Fell, Liliana's Reaver, Hammer of Ruin, Lobe Lobber, Manriki-Gusari, Mirror Shield, Sharpened Pitchfork, Umbral Mantle, Wolfhunter's Quiver, The equip cost is way to high. Terminate, You shouldn't need this card with all your deathtouch. Inferno Titan, Agent of the Fates,
I saw a lot of cards that would give creatures first strike or double strike. I don't think you need so many. Try cutting some of them out. Also it might be a better idea to focus a bit more on getting -1/-1 counters on creature for the card draw from you commander. Murderous Redcap would probably be able to drawing a couple cards for you. And you might want to look at the persist ability.
Here is a link to a deck I made that is a death touch tribal kind of idea. It's not perfect but it might help you with some ideas. And the commander might work in the 99 of your deck. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/they-said-it-would-never-work/

OMG dude thank you very much for your feedback!!!....really useful info here: i didnt put any ramp artifacts cause i didnt think theyll be necessary to be honest, but i havnt had the chance to test the deck either so, dunno for sure. Although there are some ramp in the deck such as Cabal Stronghold Crypt Ghast Magus of the Coffers and rituals,like a said dunno how effective they can be yet so... I avoided put discard spells cause i wanted to be a bit diffent , i do have some to add in case this build doesnt work properly such as Vicious Rumors Duress Blackmail etc. the idea behind Mind Slash is to sac zombie tokens you create with Waste Not Liliana's Reaver and Bone Miser... I do realise the deck still need some sharpening so, ill see how i can improve it having in mind your advide...thanks dude!

And I already love the deck, for you did the very best thing a brewer can do: Keyword "discard" and search therefrom.
I have a discard deck of my own, you see, and thence I may be able to tell some cards. It is also my oldest deck, and it is here if you so wish to see it.
Thereupon, I have quite the meiny of suggestions:
Ramp would be best for such a mana-hungry complot, withal I would like to recommend a seldomly known card. Ahem. SOL RING?! It's too powerful to ignore, and thence I would most see to its inclusion. Charcoal Diamond is splendid, Mind Stone does quite a bit, Worn Powerstone is slow but leastway worth a mention. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth does much for any black-based strategy, anent all of the resource life offers.
It is important to be ahead on cards whiles playing a discard deck, so I would try Necropotence. It may exile those discarded, but the amount it draws is ayont worth an inclusion. Greed and Erebos are also fine. Castle Locthwain is essentially a free inclusion, where at Sign in Blood should be here, too.
There are a few cards I trow to be lacking:
Mind Slash is one with which I have tested. What exactly are you sacrificing? You haven't much in terms of fodder, not much to reanimation, and thus it is almost certes a dead card most of the time.
Curse of Fool's Wisdom doesn't do anything, thereupon it is slow to slaughter and expensive to cast.
May fortune betide and may your opponents be hagridden.
