Yo Ruggs, here are a suggested cards to remove from you deck open up space.

Graveyard Fetching/Recursion - Competes for cards slots that support the tribal control theme. Besides Craterhoof Behemoth , I dont see any creature worth two cards for throwing it into your graveyard and then recurring it onto the battlefield. Animate Dead is good because you can target you opponent's graveyards - perfect for your discard theme.

Other swap options include:

Thats what I got for now.

Army of the Damned and Entreat the Dead are really good cards to add sac creatures

Nice, sounds good!

Well I’d say that Opt doesn’t really do much for you since you already have so many cards that have “each player discard x and draw x” so you’re moving through your deck. So I’d replace that with Entreat the Dead .

My immediate thought with utilizing the Bros efficiently was to emphasize artifact creatures (ex. Goblin Replica ) and enchantment creatures (ex. Courser of Kruphix ) so you could always have options on what to sacrifice to answer a problem. You have the creature portion covered completely but I honestly cannot see you wanting to sacrifice any of your enchantments without also hurting yourself.

Most options to make expendable enchantment tokens are not great, like Pharika, God of Affliction , but some like Renowned Weaver could be viable because, again, it gives you options on what you want to sacrifice.

Bros' cost is also kind of expensive so ways to reduce it or generate more mana (you are in ) will allow multiple activations if need be. Heartstone and Thran Turbine come to mind to reduce their cost and Burnished Hart , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Solemn Simulacrum , Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye are great early game to fix your mana while late-game you can sacrifice them to either ability.

You mentioned reanimation in the description so some more options are Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Phyrexian Delver , Oath of Ghouls , Palace Siege , Entreat the Dead , Feldon of the Third Path , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist .

I would also consider other sacrifice options so in case you do not need to activate Bros you can still generate value via sacrificing your tokens or creatures. Altar's Reap and Costly Plunder for card advantage, Sidisi, Undead Vizier to tutor, Priest of Forgotten Gods for multi-value, etc.

You have the protective-footwear covered but I would consider adding Spider Umbra and Kaya's Ghostform so you can protect or sacrifice them if need be. Other personal favorites of mine are Undying Evil and Supernatural Stamina .

Looks nefariously "fun!"

what do you think about the new miracle? For the last month I have been playing Aminatou and Entreat the Dead is a really solid card, I think it may be good enough here.
