Hey, you're welcome.

Noxious Ghoul is sold-out everywhere because of everyone upgrading their Wilhelt precon. Unfortunately, this means Noxious when more copies are for sale is no longer going to be a budget card for quite a long time until the hype of Wilhelt dies down. Same thing happened with Elves when Lathril, Blade of the Elves precon was released. Thankfully, Noxious is an uncommon card that's in Mystery Boosters and The List therefore more copies can be opened quicker than normal.

Hey, nice upgrades of the precon on a budget.

Hordewing Skaab from the precon is good, giving all Zombies you control flying evasion and his repeatable loot is also underrated. Noxious Ghoul is a powerful budget card for Zombies especially when your Commander can create Zombie tokens. Reanimating Noxious can wreck opponents creatures because he counts himself and each other Zombie who ETB at the same time as him.

Dreadhorde Invasion is in the precon and it's a repeatable source of Zombie token for Wilhelt to sac at your end step. Because you have Ashnod's Altar then consider Havengul Lich? It's a combo with Rooftop Storm + Ashnod's to reanimate all Zombies in all graveyards. Reanimate Diregraf Captain as the win condition by then sacing + repeatedly reanimating any other Zombie.

Consider Vampiric Rites? It's a budget one drop repeatable sac outlet for repeatable draw/life gain for decayed Zombies to sac them at the end of combat step when their attacked for the turn trigger goes to the stack. In response to the trigger sac the Zombie with Rites.

Good luck with your deck.

First of, you’ve got two Dismal Backwaters and two Noosegraf Mobs in there. Acererak the Archlich is an infinite wincon with Rooftop Storm. if you have Poppet Factory flipped with Wilhelt out, Altar of Dementia can mill your opponents to zero. To help you find pieces Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a great zombie to do so. Ebondeath, Dracolich is a great recurrable zombie. Reflections of Littjara can make your toys twice the fun. Boneknitter could also do some work for ya here. Loyal Subordinate will help you do damage if combat gets shut down. Victimize will do you service, and Patriarch's Bidding can help refill your board after a board wipe. Speaking of which, consider Noxious Ghoul and Meathook Massacre can help you clear boards that need an enigma. Hope some of that helps ya. Enjoy zombies!

Necrosis24 on Using the graveyard as a …

When I first got into edh I didn’t want to discard or sacrifice my permanents, but after changing my Chromium, the Mutable into a Varina, Lich Queen deck I have grown to love messing with my graveyard and am okay with exiling cards permanently as well.

Some of my favorite interactions have come thru using Altar of Dementia with Faith's Reward sacrificing my board to mill out an opponent then bringing it all back for some etb triggers with Binding Mummy or Noxious Ghoul.

Recently built Kathril, Aspect Warper which utilizes self-mill and recurs all my creatures with Odric, Lunarch Marshal each creature is to be feared.

You can lose everything to a Tormod's Crypt or Leyline of the Void but overall having graveyard recursion makes me less worried about protecting my pieces, so I can sometimes make seemingly unfavorable plays that actually benefit me in the long run.

If i'm playing Blue I almost always have a Clone or two. Two Noxious Ghoul make for easy board wipes and you could always use a copy of that huge thing your opponent just cast.

Fallen Shinobi can let you recast Gray Merchant of Asphodel and has a useful ability.

Epicurus Thanks for the suggestions! Massacre Girl is probably a more useful card in general, the problem is that when I use her to boardwipe all my opponent's lands it'll kill all mine too. Noxious Ghoul only ever gives -1/-1 so my lands are never at risk. Beastmaster and all the land synergies are useful, but realistically the game's over by the time I get my pieces all out and checkmate the table, so none of them are too necessary, so long as we act quickly enough. Thanks though

That's all I got for now.
