There are tons of things that could fit any of that. I'll point you to my own deck Should I Pretend This Or That? and this website

I'll just name 3 that I like for the listed categories.

reanimate- The Scarab God, Cauldron of Souls, Chainer, Dementia Master

kill- Nevinyrral's Disk, Shauku, Endbringer, Avatar of Woe

mill- Mirror-Mad Phantasm (self), Geth, Lord of the Vault, Keening Stone

gain control- Memnarch, Empress Galina, Olivia Voldaren

So I have been working on a GAAIV list now for I can't tell you how long. For some reason I cannot settle on a list that seems "good enough" for me. I initially thought about going the Enchantress route but I have done that before and it didn't end well for me. Then I went for a mostly Counterspell style build. That didn't work either. Currently I am in the middle of the two with more Artifacts than Enchantments. But it doesn't feel right still and I struggle to keep the board under control and have only won once. My meta is reasonably competitive with the only rule of there being no Infinite Combos. i.e. Palinchron and Navigator and the like.

The Commanders in our group currently include: Daretti, Scrap Savant, The Scarab God, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Ramos, Dragon Engine, Chainer, Dementia Master, Phenax, God of Deception, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Animar, Soul of Elements, The Locust God, Breya, Etherium Shaper, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Karlov of the Ghost Council, and Edgar Markov.

This is my work in progress deck. Please help.

Nice deck...brutal...but nice :)

I'd suggest a couple more boardwipes for control: Toxic Deluge and Deadly Tempest are great. If you prefer targeted removal, I really like Curtains' Call. It can be great value with the cost reduction.

Sidisi works well with repeated graveyard reanimation. Let Sidisi go to the graveyard and keep on bringing her back. Coffin Queen, Chainer, Dementia Master, and Corpse Dance are all great repeatable reanimation effects.

You may also want a little more ramp just to make sure you hit it each game. I like Myriad Landscape in mono coloured decks. Getting more swamps on the field works well for Crypt Ghast and Cabal Coffers. Ditto for Wayfarer's Bauble.

Expedition Map is great for fetching either Cabal Coffers or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Hope this helps

I agree with cdkime. Both appear in my shelly deck. Chainer, Dementia Master is really good too.

I've considered getting an pinhead alter of Chainer, Dementia Master. He always seemed pinheadish, he reanimates creatures and turns them into nightmares (cenobytes). Plus when you think of hellraiser, you think of chains. Speaking of, Chains of Mephistopheles would be really on theme. Ooooh maybe Angrath, the Flame-Chained could be the club owner of the boiler room in the 3rd movie? Please see this project thru.

Chainer, Dementia Master is fun and an on-theme card fore graveyard stealing. Best part is if chainer leaves first then their creatures get exiled :P his ability also hits any changeling, too.

this deck idea is actually so fresh because it destroys a lot of voltron decks. I like it, but why is it not commander / edh legal?

also, maybe suggestion is Nameless Inversion and all spells that are like it. the +3/-3 is used to kill smaller creatures but for 2 mana you kill a big boye too!

also Chainer, Dementia Master is a fun black card that nets you dope stuff once its dead, but its not on theme so its not necessary. Just cool is all B)
