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.

Rancid Rats seems like kind of a weak point in the deck! Skulk seems kind of wasted on a creature with Deathtouch - you're more than happy to have him blocked by one of your opponent's big fellas - and it will only get worse if you're trying to stack lords. If you really want the Deathtouch on a cheap body, I think Foulmire Knight would serve your purposes much better. He's one mana for the same 1/1 Deathtouch body, and can also score you an extra card if you draw him later in the game. Seeing as you already have eight one-drops, however, I can understand if you wanted a solid two-mana creature. Relentless Dead , Stromgald Crusader and Graveyard Marshal all would fit the bill.

By the way, Ghoulcaller's Chant is also directly superior to Return from Extinction in a zombie deck!

I've played a similar build, sans Lilianas, for a long time. I second the addition of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as he tends to over perform. Stromgald Crusader is a nice sideboard option against white removal or tokens, though I admit I haven't had the chance to try it. Cool list! Drain 'em out!

Interesting creature cards:

@hydrothermia I see good use in Dauntless Bodyguard or Student of Warfare as early drop. Stromgald Crusader might be a good option to get something flying for blocking. Personally I like the possibilities of Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, but I'm unsure about it, since I would have to put in some means to get him into the graveyard first. Overall those are some nice suggestions, thanks a lot.

Caravan Escort, Dauntless Bodyguard and Student of Warfare are all . There aren't any knights in existence. Some out there, Stromgald Crusader, or Craven Knight and Bloodcrazed Paladin. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge would give an interesting synergy. If you get a few more legendaries, you could always use Arvad the Cursed with Mirror Gallery.

Alright, spells you might find useful- Endless Ranks of the Dead, Soul Stair Expedition, and Zombie Apocalypse. Also, you need a bit more utility, get a Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Wight of Precinct Six, Stromgald Crusader and Royal Assassin. Other than that, you have a solid deck, well done.
