Yo, Saccox

I think Raise the Draugr is a straight upgrade to Return from Extinction given how you can play it at Instant Speed.

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 .

If you followed all that you should have 6 slots left. Add one more Swamp so you're at 22. Then maybe 3 Dread Wanderer , 2 Fleshbag Marauder , and flex card like Risen Executioner or something fun.

Hey Saccox! Changeling Outcast looks good, a one drop is always good. Would you like to explain what synergy you have in mind between Changeling Outcast + Sigiled Sword of Valeron ? I like Etchings of the Chosen, seems like it would be good in pretty much any black and white tribal deck. It could possibly be swapped for Dauntless Bodyguard or maybe Brave the Sands. Lastly, I love Return from Extinction, to me, it feels like a direct upgrade from Unearth and it would also be great in a zombie deck that I'm building.

Hi Yogei,Changeling Outcast? This card it's very good with Sigiled Sword of Valeron and Knights' Charge, and knights they have few one drop. Other budget cards for this deck can be Etchings of the Chosen and Return from Extinction. What do you think about it? ^^

Hi Cowardly_turtle,Return from Extinction and Changeling Outcast? Are two good cards for a minotaur deck.

Hey Saccox, thanks for the suggestions. I had actually already considered Return from Extinction, but it's pretty difficult to slip in more sorceries/instants without causing a minotaur shortage as the deck stands, and it's somewhat conditional as you can usually do without one or two minotaurs unless your opponent is playing control. Thus, it could be a decent sideboard card but I prefer my current creature swaps. Changeling Outcast, though, I do like, and definitely prefer it to Deathbellow Raider, which I only really had as an additional 2-drop if needed, so that'll be a change on the sideboard.
