Deck looks good! Personally I would switch out 1x Zombie Infestation for another Village Rites as it helps you find your key pieces. You can even take 2x Infestation out for Rites and another Unearth as well because you might not have a Corpse Knight or Wayward Servant in play and you will need those to use Rally the Ancestors, since you won't be able to attack with reanimated creatures

I might consider putting inKnight of the Ebon Legion which cost 1.96, a turn one card that can come in handy with deathtouch or in late game with counters. Corpse Knight cost 0.18, it can be useful as an occasional lifegain card, but more than 2 Corpse Knight shouldn't go in the deck. The final card is Forever Young which can all around be useful, might not be needed, but just a suggestion

Corpse Knight, Bond of Revival

I think Varina and C18 in general is vastly underestimated. I run Yennett, a $1 card that can cast huge spells for free.

Really solid deck! I tend to stay away from Worthy Knight since his tokens aren't knights. I like Corpse Knight as well looking at your Maybeboard; he seems like he'd be the easiest direct swap but you'd lose out on the token generation. Really cool deck though and very well built!

Thanks for commenting, Hblue! I'm glad the list is helping you with ideas. This list is very much still a work in progress. The deck wins in the late game, usually through grinding value out of our creatures, but it does include a couple infinite combos to speed things along.

Basri's Lieutenant goes infinite if you sacrifice a creature with a +1/+1 counter on it while you have a creature that puts a +1/+1 counter on a creature entering the battlefield (such as Good-Fortune Unicorn).

I've also included Karmic Guide + Sun Titan in the deck for infinite ETBs and infinite mana with Phyrexian Altar.

Those two combos infinitely trigger Corpse Knight, as well, and lend themselves to the possibility of an Aristocrats shell.

I'm currently building my own version of the deck focusing on Blink/ETB as well. How do you usually win the game with this deck, though? I'm assuming you are looking to abuse Corpse Knight or get either commander big enough via +1/+1 to swing for lethal, am I correct ?

I will probably end up focusing less on controlling the board and more about reanimation, but your list has been very helpful.

This is very similar to a deck I just put together. Seeing you have Athreos, God of Passage,you can pair it well with cards such as Corpse Knight and Cruel Celebrant for a constant wheel of life gain and opponent life loss. Then use Pitiless Pontiff and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim to keep cycling that wheel. Teysa Karlov helps quicken the pace of this as well, but you are wasting the second ability if you can't get a bunch of tokens. Only reason I don't use her.

BRG24, the mutated creature on top of the stack does indeed have all abilities of each creature below it. I think Pack Rat may be too slow for this deck since I don't have any other rats. If it were on top of the creature stack, then it would start as a 1/1. To get it higher I would be paying 3 mana very often, and that would be if I could keep all the rats out. Not saying it is a bad card, just not the right fit for this I think.

Vulpikeet was very close when I was considering all the creatures in the deck. I ultimately decided that I wanted Cubwarden for the extra creatures and life link. The extra creatures work great with Corpse Knight and Cruel Celebrant for entering and leaving the battlefield. Dirge Bat is also a solid flyer and easily mutated on for the destroy creature effect. Hopefully Necropanther will be enough to salvage the dead for those that don't make it. Only 2 creatures cannot be brought back by it in this deck.
