There's even a Cemetery Gate, Black Carriage and Runaway Carriage. Dawn of the Dead, Eater of the Dead and a Lord of the Undead. There is a creature type called nightmare which even includes a Nightmare. There's Childhood Horror.

Oh yea Call to the Grave is a great removal tool. Lord of the Undead to bring zombies back to your hand.

Looks good so far. It’s pricey, but I’d go with Lord of the Undead over Lord of the Accursed if it’s an option.

Hello

I think Nantuko Husk is a bit too expensive for this even though it can block. The power up it gets isn't permanent as well. If I added another 3 drop in the Mainboard I would go for Lord of the Accursed or Lord of the Undead for extra stats and utility. It's true that not being able to block with one-drops can be risky, but these two are needed for the combo and I'm hoping the Lifelink from Whip of Erebos can off-set some of the damage I take in the early turns. I think Cryptbreaker is nice, and Foulmire Knight has potential as well, but I'm limited to 60 cards. I don't see Stitcher's Supplier as great asset in this deck.

As for White splash, I have a deck that does it. For this one I'm focusing on Mono-Black to be different. I know it has it's drawbacks, but it can still pull it's weight.

Thank you for your suggestions :D

Thanks for the input Balaam__! I've got 2/3 in my Lombie Zord deck. Lord of the Undead would likely be the most useful for the graveyard retrieval, but this deck does not go wide. All recurring creatures and tokens get fed to the Carrion Feeder! (He likes zombie brains)

Thanks! Das Butch

This deck definitely deserves an upvote for its name (are you a fan of Iron Maiden?), but I do have several suggestions: first, I would swap Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic for Lord of the Undead, Cemetery Reaper, and/or Undead Warchief, all of whom shall provide the same benefits, and much more.

Also, is there any room for Soulless One and/or Graveborn Muse in this deck? They would both be awesome for a zombie tribal deck.

dbsharkeyjacoby: The reason for the zombie lords isn't for the zombie tribal theme, but the buff they offer. Death Baron gives us the ability for our zombies to have Deathtouch, so unless we're getting swung with flyers, our opponents will think twice about swinging towards us. Lord of the Undead gives us the ability to recur a vast majority of our creatures, which are zombies. Undead Warchief reduces the cost of our zombies. Out of the 20 creatures in the deck, 50% of them are zombies.

Due to these effects, you'll see why I'm not running Lord of the Accursed, all it does is give our zombie duders menace, which would require us to need to swing more. If our game gets to that point where we need to turn sideways, I'd rather use Liliana, Defiant Necromancer and/or Geth, Lord of the Vault to steal creatures, and any of our other beefy boys and swing with.

Cryptbreaker was in the deck originally, but was cut due to not having enough utility. You need to tap three zombies to draw a card? Okay, that's three creatures less we have to defend with, and defend our Lili's with. The discard outlet is fine, but unless Ensnaring Bridge is out, we don't wanna be dumping cards from OUR hand, we wanna be dumping cards from either everyones hand or our opponents hand.

Ruthless Sniper costs mana for it's give -1/-1, not really ideal. Bone Miser is a fine card, but it's very costly. Archfiend of Ifnir is a good card, and I'll consider it, if I find myself in games coming across a common dead card in hand, to swap it out with.

As for the Lili's, Liliana, Dreadhorde General has been considered, however her cmc is way higher and will destabilize the curve more, as well as she runs more in Zombie Tribal. The only value I feel I'd get out of her is killing my creatures to draw a card, which may work, but I fear it'll be way too situational. Liliana, Death's Majesty runs best in a more zombie tribal theme.

The biggest thing to keep in mind with some of these higher cost suggestions is that we are running mono-black. We don't have access to ramp outside artifact ramp, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
