Hi 5finga, thanks for your many suggestions. I don't really like Voracious Null nor Gutless Ghoul because their active abilities have an additional mana cost (even though that cost is perfectly balanced in the case of Gutless Ghoul). I also never understood the popularity of Twisted Abomination (paying 6 for a 5/3?? , ok it can regen, but... Maybe only if cycled and then Exhumed). Similar thought for Gavony Unhallowed, it costs too much and for this reason Carrion Feeder is better. Cemetery Recruitment is good, but it would be perfect for a , with its 2 drop cost is replaced by the better Ghoulcaller's Chant. Also, it couldn't combo with Nameless Inversion, because it explicitly says "creature card" and not only "zombie card" as the Chant does. On the other hand, Wight of Precinct Six may be perfect, I don't know how I missed it! Thank a lot for this last piece of advice! I know it's a long answer but I wanted to write down all my thoughts about these cards.

Animate Dead, Exhume, Footsteps of the Goryo, Necromancy, Reanimate, Unearth, Death, and Victimize are all the type of cards necessary for a reanimator build so you can bring back your best card from the graveyard. You would also need plenty of ways to put cards into your yard. Like shadow63 said, Grislebrand is the number one card to reanimate.... but there are other awesome options like Massacre Wurm and It That Betrays, but those are still a bit pricey. As are the best reanimator spells. That is why I would suggest going more midrange for you

First of all, this deck looks awesome. Reanimating not only creatures, but also spells seems really fun ^^ Get an Academy Ruins and Volrath's Stronghold in there for even more graveyard shenanigans :) You also might also consider lands with sacrifice outlets, like High Market or Phyrexian Tower, since they save your creatures from being exiled and returning to the graveyard. But those lands tend to be a bit more expensive.
A little bit of critique though, Isochron Scepter is probably not worth running, unless you actively tutor for spells to imprint. You currently only have 4!!! It can't imprint Exhume, since that's a sorcery. And I don't think you want to imprint Cyclonic Rift since overloading it will probably win you the game. A simple Boomerang every turn not. That leaves you with only 3 targets...

Let me correct myself. You need Phyrexian Devourer instead of Mikeus for the Nooze combo to work.
Grand Architect + Pili-pala in the graveyard with Necrotic Ooze in play might work but you need to pass a turn or give it haste.
I would love to see the stax theme though. It was why I checked the list in the first place. Lol.

@wraya2: Unfortunately Pemmin's Aura is an uncommon. Would be great otherwise
@IMMG54: Thanks for the suggestions. The key creatures definitely are above 3CMC, which makes Unearth kind of weak. Exhume is a neat idea, but I think it would just play out like a ritual on combo turns since I don't think I would cast it earlier if I give my opponents something as well. I thought about adding Pulse of Murasa or Grapple with the Past to increase the number of recursion (especially for lands, since you might want to recur a Karoo to be able to combo off with Cloud of Faeries), but I'm not sure what to take out.

BTW, Exhume is a powerful card, and I have one unallocated, but I'm worried it will not be sufficiently asymmetrical.
Has your experience been different?

Hey, it's already been said, draw and looting helps reanimation strategies in the early game.
- Rage Reflection
- Hammer of Nazahn
- Conjurer's Closet
Other suggestions for more early game plays consider: Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, Jet Medallion and Ruby Medallion? For lands consider: Blood Crypt, Graven Cairns, Sulfurous Springs and Dragonskull Summit?
Exhume is also a powerful reanimation spell for two mana.
