Chancellor of the Annex because it can slow the opponents way down. Otherwise Griselbrand .

Settle the Wreckage is great with Aven Mindcensor .

Emeria, The Sky Ruin free hatebear.

Dust Bowl is good with a lot of basics. Isolated Watchtower too.

Dawn Charm useful tech.

Solemnity might be a strong tax depending on meta.

Alms Collector white tax and card draw.

Sanctum Prelate evil.

Chancellor of the Annex personal favorite.

Palladium Myr seems out of place. Phyrexian Revoker

A lot of these are in the $10 range but might as well suggest em' anyways.

Eldrich Evolution decks are usually good at getting out a turn 2 Magus of the Moon / Eidolon of Rhetoric off a mana dork for the occasional free win.

Don't forget also that Birthing Pod is still legal in that format and gives you a less weak to Force of Will alternative to EE that also works as an engine if the rest of your deck is derpy green creatures. The drawback being your payoff would have to be in the 8 cmc range which isn't the worst considering that includes Griselbrand , Craterhoof Behemoth , Tidespout Tyrant , Archetype of Endurance , Ashen Rider and Platinum Emperion (literally all the same payoffs as the format's primary reanimation deck -elesh norn).

Chancellor of the Tangle is a green mana source that pitches to Allosaurus Rider and can even be a payoff in a pinch and Chancellor of the Annex gives you a potential to go off turn 1 with the pregame trigger for backup and also can be a payoff sometimes.

Insist cantrips, pitches to rider and can even punish opponents who plan to "counter the payoff not the mana source".

I might add more suggestions if I think about them.

Getting into legacy and plan on running reanimator. My creature selection is pretty standard running 4 Griselbrand 4 Chancellor of the Annex 1 Iona, Shield of Emeria 1 Sire Of Insanity and 1 Tidespout Tyrant. My question, is there ever a scenario where I'm on the play and would be better off reanimating Griselbrand rather than Iona or Sire?

cdkime I do kind of want to cut Mordant Dragon but I'm not a huge fan of Chancellor of the Annex just because it's okay in the beginning of the game but loses a lot of value as the game progresses, until mid to late game when most opponent have a lot mana to spend and mana isn't really going to hurt them at all. but think ill go with the safe choices either Akroma, Angel of Wrath or Rakdos the Defiler which one do thing is better? lastly I just don't think one tutor is really worth it in a 100 card deck and if drew it mid to late game it would just be pretty meh unlike Insurrection which would most likely win me the game.

It’s no bother at all - happy to help!

I do not think you need any of those creatures. Indulgent Tormentor gives your opponent three options, allowing them multiple ways to pick whatever will work best for them. Resolute Archangel will often not make that big of a difference in games. Hoard-Smelter Dragon is nice if you have Artifact-heavy opponents, but most of the time you’d rather just use Hellkite Tyrant. I gave your list another look - Chancellor of the Annex is a fairly solid card if you’re looking for something new.

I think your Price of Glory substitution makes sense.

I don’t think I would cut Diabolic Tutor. Tutors are a very important part of EDH, as they allow you to find that one copy of the card you desperately need. Diabolic Tutor is very marginal, as far as tutors go, but it’s what you get for budget builds.

SenseiRamen those are some cool suggestions! I like Dream Cache a lot. That just seems like a upgrade to some other filter spells in the deck, and Haunted Crossroads lets your recover well from a board wipe. I like the idea of Helm of the Host, but it costs too much mana and is too slow for my liking, so i'll include Blade of Selves instead. I think the extra copies of the creatures are worth it for the deck, even if it doesn't synergies very well with some of our creatures like Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite because of the legend rule, and Chancellor of the Annex because it doesn't stick around.
