This deck looks really solid! One of my close friends has been running a blue and black zombie deck for a while. I think your deck would benefit a lot from Cryptbreaker. Can generate zombies and card draw. Foulmire Knight is also a solid option.

As much as I love Grave Titan, depending on how fast/competitive you want this deck to be, he is going to slow you down a lot. I think Diregraf Colossus could be a strong replacement.

Lord of the Accursed can also be a game winning zombie lord. Although Consume Spirit adds to the lifegain idea, you still need at least three mana to cast it, and even then its not doing much work for you. Murderous Rider can not only serve as removal, but is alternatively a zombie with lifelink.

Cards I'd take out to replace with the ones I receommended would be Consume Spirit, Grave Titan, Graf Harvest, Headless Rider, and Shambling Ghast.

These of course are personal suggestions, you do what makes you happy!

Hello zapyourtumor thank you for the suggestions. Replacing Shambling Ghast with Cryptbreaker could work. What would you suggest removing for your other two suggestions?

I really like the use of Eradicator Valkyrie I've definitely had games where it has run away with things and people are like, what is that card : )

And I'm not sure if any of these would help, but here are a few that I've found useful in a sac deck.

Mishra's Factory because sometimes you just need one more body to clear their board : ) But you do need a lot of black for you creatures, so I'm not sure if it would work.

Deadly Dispute is just such good value and it's one of the best spells to cast on their end step.

Nether Traitor is great fuel for sacs, and with a couple on the board can really add up damage.

Shambling Ghast goes so well with effects like Braids, Arisen Nightmare The ghast can sometimes effectively double your removal.

But your list looks pretty solid as is, I just figured to throw out a few things that have worked for me : ) Looks awesome!

Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Impulsive Pilferer, and Shambling Ghast seem like decent additions. I'm also surprised not to see the fetchlands in this deck (heck, given the added value from Korvold it might be worth it to run off-color fetches like Marsh Flats), and if you do add the fetches then Elvish Reclaimer and Crop Rotation would perform incredibly well.

Happy trails! Korvold is one of my favorite commanders >:)

Welcome to the format and nice budget list! I've seen a slightly upgraded version of this adding Green for Renegade Rallier and Kaya's Ghostform for an infinte combo. Adding green allowed them to play Collected Company to find the pieces easier. All you need is a sacrifice outlet (they ran Cartel Aristocrat along with Woe Strider). You have Kaya's Ghostform attached to Renegade Rallier, sacrifice the Rallier, it triggers the enter the battlefield trigger you attach Kaya's Ghostform from the graveyard to the Rallier and repeat along with a creature like Zulaport Cutthroat to deal damage while doing it.

It's a pretty cool deck I would suggest at least another sacrifice outlet as you only have Cartel Aristocrat and Priest of Forgotten Gods that has to tap to activate. There is most likely another combo with Bontu's Monument and Oathsworn Vampire as well. Honestly the rest of the deck and the sideboard look pretty good.

I think I found another if you ran Liliana, Untouched By Death and Shambling Ghast activating her ultimate then continually sacrificing Ghast and casting it again.

Would Shambling Ghast have a place in here? Also, having Luminous Broodmoth without Solemnity feels like a crime ;)

I love zombie decks! It’s one of my favorite themes but I stayed mono-black with mine. But I know there are good black/blue zombie cards like one that will give all zombie tokens Hexproof I believe or another that gives them flying. Just use an Advanced Search on Scryfall.com to find them. When it comes to non-mono black, I just don’t prefer the “mill” theme that comes with blue; I love the reanimated swarm theme black focuses on. Anyways, here is the "zombie" I know:

For added consistency with Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver, you could consider Diregraf Colossus and Headless Rider. I know they don’t work nicely with the Death Tyrant + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver combo but here is how all 3 of them are really nice:

As a Rooftop Storm backup, you may want to consider Liliana, Untouched By Death (-3 ability). Her with Shambling Ghast (Search the Body) plus a sac outlet; or, Her with Phyrexian Altar and any 1 drop zombie make a 1 turn infinite cycle fueling any ETB and death triggers. Liliana, Untouched By Death's -3 ability effectively turns any 1 drop zombie like Shambling Ghast, Carrion Feeder, Champion of the Perished, and Cryptbreaker -into- Gravecrawlers for 1 turn. Basically, she'll increase your consistency getting your combos rolling.

  • Champion of the Perished is really good when your constantly making zombies ETB.
  • Consider using Blasting Station as a sac outlet too. For example, any time you sac with the station during a combo, the combo will also do 1-dmg per cycle. And, if the combo is making zombies, the station will untap too.
  • Black Market can also get out of hand when doing sac combos. It can really help when the combo is not infinite. It also makes people think harder about the cost of boardwiping.

Anyways cool seeing the Death Tyrant + Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver combo; I hadn’t seen that one yet!
