At the beginning of your upkeep, you lose 1 life.

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return target creature card from your graveyard to play. That creature gains haste until end of turn. Remove it from the game at end of turn.

You can consider adding in Yosei, the Morning Star for double lock down triggers. Consistent recursion are also great so cards you can think about adding are Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Necromancy , Reanimate , Corpse Dance just to name a few.

Repeatable ones are like Dawn of the Dead , Debtors' Knell , Sheoldred, Whispering One and such if you want to abuse their effect multiple times.

Hope that helps!

Considering that your curve is a bit on the higher side, you can cut away the less efficient zombies and run a bit of artifact ramp as well as either more card draw or reanimation tech.

Some cards you can consider for reanimation are:

Some ramp or card draw you can consider:

Hope that helps!

ThaneGarrus Happy to explain. There is no Stax theme. Everything that you see being stax is actually a sac outlet. I can choose to use tabby as a sac outlet that is harder to remove than the others. It works in conjunction with Dawn of the Dead and Lifeline I want to be able to sac every upkeep and every end step wheich means i use 2-3 sac outlets per turn. The more death triggers the better. And remember people dont have decks designed around Lifeline . A lot of the meta where I am is Storm and control decks there are not a lot of creature decks so lifline has actually won me the game a few times already.

The Altar of Dementia mill is also just bec I want a sac outlet. Having a Sac outlet that can mill when you have 40 power on board is very powerful.

The deck is designed to let players kill anything they want exile anything they want and it dosent matter the deck bounces back trowing crazy token combos back in your face. I dont care what other players are doing most of the time and if i do I use Coffin Queen and Helm of Possession to stop them. People see the death triggers and assume they should take the sac outlets off the board or from the deck, but it dosent matter I have so many ways to sac my cards they do nothing but answer me all game. You will be the target all game with this deck and thats fine they wont be able to build a board while they have to answer all the recursion and tokens.

Nice deck Rwalter!

Have you consider trying out cards like Dawn of the Dead , Oversold Cemetery , Golgari Grave-Troll , or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed ?

There are other cheap reanimation spells like Dance of the Dead and Necromancy , or the recently reprinted Entomb and Reanimate .

Feel free to check out my Meren deck for more ideas!

Hope that helps!

Really like the whole new Rakdos theme they doing over here. A card that I immediately thought of that could help is Blasphemous Act as well as Carnival of Souls both cards are on point with theme and can possibly help.

For card draw and recursion. Here might be some cards that can be considered but aren't on theme:

Hope that helps and +1 for that great intro!
