Thank you for the feed back and suggestions !

My Card draw:

Solemn Simulacrum, Sage of Fables, River Kelpie, Midnight Reaper, Disciple of Bolas, Baleful Strix, Skullclamp, Sensei's Divining Top,Rhystic Study, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Arena, Moonlight Bargain. A total of 12 draw.

Also let’s not forget my tutors which I include has better card draw ( because you can obtain whatever you need ): Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Razaketh, the Foulblooded,Liliana Vess,Diabolic Intent,Vampiric Tutor,Mystical Tutor,Lim-Dul's Vault,Fabricate. 8 tutors ,let’s also not forget my cheat in play combos; Buried Alive+Victimize,Entomb+Reanimate. In total I have 23 cards in the deck which would allow me to have some kind of card advantage but is it enough?

My Sac outlets:

Phyrexian Tower,Grimgrin, Corpse-Born,Phyrexian Altar,Ashnod's Altar,Altar of Dementia,Goblin Bombardment, and one creature sacrifice with effects:Sidisi, Undead Vizier,Profaner of the Dead.

My Board Wipe:

My wipe game is ... down too three cards.. Cyclonic RiftToxic DelugeProfaner of the Dead. Your suggestion of Last One Standing is a perfect addition!

My Life gain:

Since my commander is Marchesa, the Black Rose my goal is always to be at the lowest but I do have two options of ganning life: Disciple of Bolas,Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip (Flipped). But Gray Merchant of Asphodel could be very powerful, any suggestions for a cut for him ?

The suggestions:

Grim Haruspex not as as abuse able as Midnight Reaper ( allows me to stay under the highest life total/ Midnight Reaper effects itself.

Corpse Augur relying on opponents graveyard to have creatures doesn’t seem very attractive to me.

Oona's Blackguard,Sadistic Hypnotist I have one creature that does both and more ! Vindictive Lich which I can abuse and effect all my opponents.

Dimir House Guard ( a tutor creature) , but I have plenty of tutors xD.

Deck looks good. Only things you might want more of is card draw, sac outlets, and board wipes.

Draw: Grim Haruspex, Corpse Augur, and Consecrated Sphinx. Discard kinda fits here too, consider Oona's Blackguard.

Sac Outlets: Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Sadistic Hypnotist (more discard), and Dimir House Guard (also tutors sneak attack, damnation, etc.).

Board Wipes: Last One Standing and Jokulhaups (dick move, but ends the game even if you only have a few creatures coming back).

Some lifegain is nice too. Disciple of Bolas, Kokusho, the Evening Star, and Gray Merchant of Asphodel serve other purposes as well.

Card Advantage (CA) is always key in any deck. The thing about Fecundity is that sometime's opponents can also get CA from it as well, and I prefer it to be as asymmetrical as possible. Izoni is also quite slow to be a decent CA engine. For budget purposes I would actually recommend something more akin Grim Haruspex, Phyrexian Arena, or even Mindblade Render as CA engines.

In regarding for cards like Greater Good and Disciple of Bolas, I love them. They are great in any reanimation decks. I would also recommend Corpse Augur if you have a pretty filled grave most of the time, and it doesn't even have to be yours as well since it's target player. Lifeblood Hydra is a bit risky, but since your going with a +1/+1 theme it's decent. I would not add in Etched Oracle, it may seem good but it's meh at best. Skullclamp is also a great engine with a sac outlet on the field as well as having Ravos return the creature back to your hand to reuse again.

If you have a bit higher budget I would definitely recommend in getting Sylvan Library, one of the best CA engine around. For sac outlets I would also recommend Viscera Seer as it is one of the most cost efficient one as well as a relevant ability upon sacrificing. Carrion Feeder also goes along with theme. I do recommend as I mentioned earlier Journey to Eternity  Flip as for a reuseable reanimation ability as well as not being hard to trigger being a Aristocrat type deck.

A few more cards to consider would also be Drana, Liberator of Malakir, she is a hidden gem in this deck to constantly proc +1/+1 counters and she is force to be reckoned with. Bane of Progress is also a good mass board wipe against plenty of artifact or enchantment based decks. Necropolis Regent is a bit high on the curve but does a lot for making counters. Bow of Nylea can also help you make more counters or protect your graveyard from hate. Hope that answers your question and feel free to ask for any help!

watokosha on Muldrotha Good Stuff

So here are a few suggestions to make the deck a bit more versatile.

(also i dont know how to make stuff get highlighted in comments so this may be difficult to decipher)

!) although muldrotha has recursion built in its always good to have more. I would suggest adding a Sepulchral Primordial because it has good abusable effect and some other re-animator effects. Also don't relay to much on your commander's effect for recursion its always good to have other methods encase people keep removing her or do other things to her. - Some good ones would be Animate Dead and Phyrexian Delver, both these you can re use with muldrotha also. The Eldest Reborn should also be a mainboard because its removal and can be recursion. The mending is also good even if it shuffles your graveyard away as you can build back easily I think. Deadbridge Chant is also good. - Adding some sac outlets would also be helpful to abuse some triggers as well, Ashnods Alter is a good option or Hell's Caretaker.

2) more removal i think is needed a Bone Shredder and Ravenous Chupacabra would be good additions. - Also don't be afraid to have more instants and sorcerie's there are many creature etbs that can return those such as Eternal Witness she would be great. Adding some good ramps spells would be good or other removal effects like Krosan Grip and board wipes like Crux of Fate or if you can afford it Damnation.

3) cards that don't do enough. I think a few of the cards don't do enough even if they can be recurred easily so the below i would suggest replacing thees cards i also have a suggestion for a possible replacement for a few of them or you can use suggestions from above:

Other stuff: Don't forget that Panharmonicon does not help landfall effects, it only helps if a Creature or artifact etb

Well Shamanic Revelation is good but I'd rather have Corpse Augur, Disciple of Bolas, Slithermuse, Krav, the Unredeemed, maybe Rishkar's Expertise, etc because it can over draw (which can fill the graveyard), and creatures can be reanimated again and again. Grisly Salvage, Tracker's Instincts, and Sultai Ascendancy seem like weaker cards, I'd rather want to ramp, over draw, or remove stuff. Overrun or Lord of the Accursed could be replaced with creatures like Mindshrieker, Kessig Cagebreakers, Beastmaster Ascension, Thunderfoot Baloth, maybe Overwhelming Stampede. Concordant Crossroads and Balthor the Defiled also seem like weaker cards, it will probably benefit other decks more, and BUG reanimator decks can afford to be selfish. I would also replace Splinterfright, as it could be 0/0 on curve, and isn't as strong as the golgari troll or nyx weaver.

I haven't tested this deck yet, so these suggestions might not suffice, but I hope it inspired you a bit. And I have a similar deck (Reanimator's Wet Dream: Sidisi Edition), so checking that out might also help your deck stronger.

Hope this helps

Kingtalk on The Black Oath

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper  Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey  Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha
