While I like Celestial Gatekeeper the part where it exiles itself is pretty inconvenient especially when I am geared to be able to reoccur creatures with Ravos, Soultender, the irony is he would have a place if he was less tribal and could target Angel of Glory's Rise as she is really one of the only targets worth a one shot reanimation effect. If I were running Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as the commander I think I would add it as he makes good sacrificial fodder. Thank you for the suggestions and please keep them coming.

Sadtrex: Thanks for having a look and for taking the time to comment! It's pretty hilarious to sit down with new people and see their faces as you get "mana screwed" for several turns, and even funnier if the game goes long enough for you to actually do something. I've actually won with this pile a couple of times (always off the Angel of Glory's Rise line), and it's pretty satisfying.
I'd love to make improvements to this, but sadly cards that would fit the deck are pretty rare. I've been considering As Foretold; I need to add that to the Maybeboard.

Great deck, really like what you have done with Saffi, affirming her position as a very viable combo commander - Saffi has long been a favorite of mine.
A few suggestions: Would Weathered Wayfarer be better than Knight of the Reliquary? I'm not positive on this, but I would think Wayfarer to be better since it comes down much earlier, but it does have conditions.
Timely Hordemate is another recursion creature for Saffi, but you may have enough of that going on already - and it has an attack condition.
I would definitely recommend Sakura-Tribe Elder over either Nature's Lore or Three Visits since it is a creature that can be recurred, as I am sure you already know from your previous build of this deck.
What I have been doing lately is an interesting Birthing Pod chain: pod off any three drop for Felidar Guardian, which enters play and blinks pod. Then pod off Felidar Guardian for Karmic Guide, who will trigger and return Felidar Guardian, blinking the pod once again. Now pod off Karmic Guide for Wispweaver Angel, who will trigger and blink Felidar, who will trigger and blink pod. Last pod activation sacs Wispweaver Angel getting Angel of Glory's Rise or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Instead of getting Wispweaver Angel at the six-mana spot you could opt for Sun Titan if the conditions called for it. Boonweaver Giant is also an option if one decides to play it in their respective deck, and it may have just got a little bit better now. There is a lot you can do with that ridiculous Felidar Guardian and Birthing Pod - I fear that the cat may also get the banhammer in Edh as well...

Hello, Great deck! +1 from me. I have a recommendation: Azami, Lady of Scrolls. It gets returned from Angel of Glory's Rise, and offers an additional way to draw your last card besides Eternal Witness by tapping either itself or Laboratory Maniac. It also provides a safeguard in case you draw your Eternal Witness before you get off your combo.

In more competitive EDH decks, reanimator strategies generally use cards like Entomb, Buried Alive, and Hermit Druid to dump combo pieces into the graveyard quickly to be reanimated, as opposed to focusing on just trying to get big creatures onto the board early in the game like in other formats. Getting a huge creature out on turn 1 or 2 just doesn't have the same impact in EDH due to the large life totals and often having multiple opponents (although getting out an early Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and having it survive through to your next turn will often win the game for you).
Some of the graveyard-based combos you may see at a tournament are: Hermit Druid combo; Boonweaver Giant combo; some variations of Necrotic Ooze combo; Worldgorger Dragon combo; variations of Protean Hulk combo; Angel of Glory's Rise bomberman combo; and various infinite loops that use cards like Reveillark, Karmic Guide, and Saffi Eriksdotter.
Even if combo isn't the route you want to take with your deck, it's worth googling the chains for the combos listed above so that you have an idea regarding what other reanimator decks you come across might be up to.

I've never seen anyone play Canadian Highlander, but it looks like fun. This is a very similar build to my General Tazri Commander. I haven't uploaded the deck to Tappedout quiet yet so it's pointless to look for at the moment. I'd add Foresight as it can pull Misthollow Griffin and Eternal Scourge in the same way that Manipulate Fate can. I'd also add in Riftsweeper or Pull from Eternity as they can recover your Food Chain if it gets removed. You're also running the perfect set of colors to run the Lion's Eye Diamond combo. 1st cast Entomb putting Auriok Salvagers + Angel of Glory's Rise + Trinket Mage into your graveyard then you Reanimate the Angel of Glory's Rise and pull the Lion's Eye Diamond from your library and simply go off. I'd also consider Yawgmoth's Will and Past in Flames for graveyard possibilities, and Walking Ballista as it can be tutored out by artifact search given that it's a xx cost it's equivalent is zero and it's the perfect sieve to strain away your opponents life when you have all that mana.
