Tree of Perdition is super strong together with Ayli. Karmic Guide and Reveillark have super good reanimator effects and make a good infinite life combo together with Pawn of Ulamog wich is tutorable with Buried Alive. Another good reanimator card is Dawn of the Dead. Of course Westvale Abbey Flip is very strong and fits into the style of the Deck. Last but not least Helm of the Gods can make lifegain through ayli much better and is a solid one drop. I would suggest put out cards like Unburial Rites and Beacon of Unrest. I'm not sure about cards like Ashnod's Altar and Attrition are they good enough to stay in the Deck while your commander is such a good sac outlet? If you have some time to "waste" just take a look at my Ayli Deck and make some suggestions on it too. Its inspired by your Deck.

My friend milled me out with a couple of Altar of the Brood in a token deck once.. or twice..
I guess mill decks come in many forms. This one looks to close out games from creatures/damage and the mill is centered around boosting your creatures. Cards like Beacon of Unrest, Telemin Performance or even Rise of the Dark Realms could be pretty fun to play in decks like these if you want to keep it casual.

enpc, I know what you mean, bud. Goodstuffs is a bit scattered, naturally. Obviously, the colors can do so much: Control, Reanimator, Combos, etc. Since I haven't really gotten a chance to play this live much, it's mostly theorycrafted, and will likely evolve as it gets more experience.
Rewind was actually the first major counterspell I put in the deck, and here's why: In most cases, I'm keeping 4 mana open anyhow for Taz's ability. Once I cast it, it untaps the mana and then I can still use Taz's ability, so it's a free counterspell if I can keep the mana up for it. Honestly though, it has been a card I've been eyeballing for cut.
I, too, feel like I need more ramp. I have cards like Tempt with Discovery and Explosive Vegetation, as well as dudes like Sylvan Caryatid, but the problem is that they're junk past the first few turns... easy pickins for opponents when I'm pumping mana into Taz's ability, and awkward cards are the first to get cut. NOTE: I actually just got Burgeoning in the mail today, so that'll be the first ramp card to find its way in methinks.
I've got an Animate Dead somewhere, MIA atm, but also have Beacon of Unrest and Profane Command in maybeboard also. This deck is actually a descendent of Sedris, the Traitor King, which I built as reanimator, but found it vulnerable and ineffective too much in multiplayer, so I made this. I skipped reanimation as a theme because it's one of those that feel like it's all or nothing, but a few inclusions couldn't hurt.
Regarding self-mill, I agree with you completely, which is why I took out Deadbridge Chant (10 cards with no control, swiftly met with Rakdos Charm just feels horrible). That said, the Siege is a loot engine that at least lets me select 1 out of the 2 cards as additional draw. Nyx Weaver is one of those cards that feels sketchy, but that sac ability means I can turn it off at any time. Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is the only card that feels bad self-milling, but at least I can sneak a zombie or two onto my board. If anthing, she's the one to get chopped simply because she doesn't provide me any cards while all other self-mill cards provide loot effects.

I really like your ramp suite. Very efficient and color fixing focused which is important for casting Lazav. Your lands might need a touch more color fixing?
If you like, check out my multiplayer focused Lazav deck. Always looking for ideas myself!

Cool deck! I think you should consider Wrexial, the Risen Deep in your list. He fits well with both your mill theme and instants & sorceries theme, while being a good target for your Extract from Darkness. In addition, I think more reanimation spells could be useful, such as Beacon of Unrest, allowing you to steal stuff from other's graveyards in addition to reanimating your own toys. The additional flexibility of reanimation that hits all graveyards seems especially important in this deck. Since you are already playing traumatize, Morality Shift seems like it could be fun here. I suppose it all depends on how much self-mill you want. Happy brewing!
