grisly salvage and Grapple with the Past are similar cards. Early game GS is better and if you are adding one of the suggested recursion cards i would therefore ditch grapple. doom blade is a good swap out for nameless inversion.

I think your creature count is probably a little high:

Moldgraf Scavenger - is not the most active creature in the deck a 0/4 isn't great early game and a 3/4 is not great late game

Ghoultree & Nemesis of Mortals do not have any evasion or trample so i'm not sure how often they will win you the game in a deck that cant give them either.

Soo long story short my recommendations would be:

Doombladex3-> Nameless Inversion x3

Moldgraf Scavenger x4 & Dead Weight x2-> Traveler's Amulet x4 & Satyr Wayfinder x2

Grapple with the Past x3-> Return from Extinction x3

Ghoultree x2 & Nemesis of Mortals -> Mindwrack Demon x3

Really nice budget list of this deck, it still plays the nice premium cards such as Life from the Loam , Damnation and Sheoldred, Whispering One while still keeping it at a budget, nice!

An really nice interaction I use in my The Mimeoplasm deck (Mill-Me-O-Plasm (EDH Reanimator)) is using Champion of Wits , it's a fine play to just play on curve. You basicly just play Careful Study , which is a perfect effect for a deck like this. But it gets really fun when you copy Champion of Wits with The Mimeoplasm and give it 10 +1/+1 counters from example Ghoultree for example. This will draw you a ton of cards!

Hope you like it! Happy Oozing!

Cards you could cut: Journey to eternity, kraul stinger, glimpse the unthinkable, vampire of the dire moon, rhizhome lurcher.

Other cards you can play: Lotleth Giant , Dakmor Salvage , Golgari Grave-Troll , Stitcher's Supplier , Boneyard Wurm , Ghoultree .

Probably Ghoultree . You may also want to consider Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with your Woodfall Primus due to the undying and persist triggers counteracting each other for infinite. There is also Bonehoard that is a living weapon that functions just like Nighthowler .

Just ideas.

c0rocotta A couple things about grave hate when playing this deck from my own experiences. Rest in Peace is almost unbeatable unless you draw Nature's Claim or Assassin's Trophy .

The grave hate that one time removes your graveyard like Nihil Spellbomb , Relic of Progenitus , and Tormod's Crypt can actually be played around to a somewhat decent level. For example, if you have 4 creatures in your grave and they have not popped spell bomb or relic or crypt by the time you gain priority on your own main phase 1, you can cast Nemesis of Mortals for 2 mana and they can't do anything about it. Same with Ghoultree . Once these creatures are on the stack it doesn't matter if your graveyard is eliminated. Your opponent often lets you get these creatures into play because they want to wait and wait until you have a really full yard, but you don't need that many creatures in your yard to start casting these two guys on turn 3.

You can also bounce back pretty quickly once they do decide to exile your graveyard. If you hold a Grisly Salvage back that can usually get you back in it. Another thing to note, when your graveyard is exiled by bomb, relic, or crypt, any of your Splinterfright or Boneyard Wurm that die as a result will go to the graveyard after it was exiled and will start you off with a creature or two.

Grave hate definitely still wrecks you, but these are the ways you can sort of be strategic in the way you deploy your cards to get around some of the common hate cards out there.

Deck looks good, few suggestions would be your land count is a little concerning. There is a good chance you will get bricked more times then not I’d be in the low 30s at least.

I think ramp will be your best friend. As a fellow grave yard player it takes a few cards to dump and reanimate so having more mana makes your combos faster. I wouldn’t go for mana dorks but cards that bring lands out for you. Cheap ones like Farhaven Elf and Coiling Oracle .

I know Ghoultree looks good as a 10/10 for possibly cheap but without trample he can be easily chump blocked by a 1/1 token. If you want a cheap big guy look at Molderhulk helps if you have some lands in the grave.

Also Lazav, the Multifarious is a great card but I found him to be slightly lack for the reason graveyard decks love enter the battle field effects. Lazav clones but since you are not casting the cards he will not trigger those effects.

Might want to trim the creatures and focus on getting the really good ones down faster

Instead of Naturalize , you could play Qasali Pridemage , fuels you graveyard, and generally more useful while in play. It's a lot more expensive though, but maindeck artifact/enchantment hate, should usually do something other than just killing those permanents.

Boneyard Wurm , and Splinterfright seem like a good additions, alongside Ghoultree .

I think you need something to get creatures in the yard with, though.

I think black will be better than white here. So many cards to sac, self mill and benefit from your graveyard. Without it Grapple with the Past , Mulch and Satyr Wayfinder are probably your best options for that.
