ChaosJester on Help with Coffin Queen

Hey guys I own a playset of Coffin Queen and want to build a deck together with Buried Alive. Does anyone know cards which I can use to build around this combo? Thank you very much for your suggestions

Sidisi works really well with Brain Freeze, Mulch, Buried Alive, Corpse Connoisseur and Fact or Fiction. More mass reanimation like Patriarch's Bidding, Zombie Apocalypse and Balthor the Defiled would be fantastic, as well as cheap ones like Reanimate, Animate Dead, Unearth or Endless Obedience.
Since your deck is very proactive and therefore often needs a lot of mana on its own turn, 3cmc counters with small upsides like Dissolve and Scatter to the Winds seem weak here. Cheaper ones like Swan Song, Stubborn Denial, Arcane Denial, Delay or Counterspell are much better, since you can more easily keep the mana open to cast them once it matters.
Naturalize is a solid card, but with all the tokens you generate, Sundering Vitae should usually be the same effect for 0-1 mana.

@KeelHaul10: Yawgmoth's Will has won me matches with only 6 to 8 mana. Why? In my meta, it is very common for me to get enchanment and artifact hate. Plus there was a time I used i to recast Primal Command to ensure a key card was removed from my opponents field and another time where it recast my Buried Alive and Entomb for a high value Living Death. I have yet to use it for creature recursion.

Fetches like Entomb and Buried Alive can work wonders with your commander and be done near instantly with her ability. Illusionist's Bracers would also do you well to double that trigger. Consider focusing on your commanders abilities instead of trying to make a deck themed to something not as relevant to her playstyle.

An Entomb, and Buried Alive would be helpful.

The transmute tutors are nice to grab specific pieces:

Dimir House Guard, Brainspoil, Shred Memory, and Dimir Machinations.

I have a finely tuned Varolz deck that you can check out if you want, but I'll make some more budgeted suggestions.

Nature's Claim is much better than Natural State especially if you're going to kill with infect/general damage.

Check out Vector Asp, Glistener Elf, Plague Stinger, and Viridian Corrupter for cheap, but effective scavenge targets. Be warned that infect strategies wont make you any friends, but it's an effective way to use Varolz. There's also Tainted Strike and Phyresis (works great with Thrun, the Last Troll!) if you scavenge onto non-infect creatures.

Creatures that are good for scavenging (other thank Phyrexian Dreadnought and Death's Shadow):

A good way to get those creatures into your graveyard is to use Buried Alive.

Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are good with Varolz. Remember to scavenge BEFORE you equip if you're using Lightning Greaves because of shroud.

I recommend as many tutors as you can afford. Diabolic Tutor is pretty affordable.

Emzed on Mum's gone to Meren

Eldritch Evolution, Buried Alive, Diabolic Intent, Tooth and Nail and Protean Hulk are great tutors for a deck like this. Also, Corpse Augur is a powerful card advantage engine. On the other hand, Mindslicer is perfect for setting back decks that rely on having lots of cards in hand (mostly blue decks), since Meren plays so well with just a couple of lands and a full graveyard. I also like Snuff Out, a free removal spell can really punish people for making risky plays once you are tapped out.
