Ah, a fellow Sidisi player! Your deck looks pretty solid. Since I assume you want to stay at the same power level and budget as your decklist, here are some suggestions:
- Mesmeric Orb: While it's a little on the expensive side, it works perfectly for this deck, creating you 10-30 zombies per game with noe effort. It also combos with Basalt Monolith, Seeker of Skybreak, and Aphetto Alchemist if you want to up the deck's power level.
Underrealm Lich: An amazing card, both for the card selection and graveyard filling. He's also hard to get rid of, and ensures you don't mill yourself out of the game. He does unfortunately nonbo with Lab Maniac, though.
- The Gitrog Monster: An absolute house in this deck. He will often draw you 3+ cards a turn, and his "downside" is actually a great boon, drawing you an extra card every turn. He also goes great with Ramunap Excavator, making his downside literally non-existant.
- Gravespawn Sovereign: I didn't know this card existed until recently, and boy am I happy someone pointed it out to me. This card is often reanimating 3+ bodies a turn, and can get some of your big bois, like Muldrotha, the Gravetide and Sheoldred, Whispering One.
- Mana dorks: I know that they aren't exactly the definition of fun, but you need them for the deck to function. You have a pretty bad curve, with your deck mainly consisting of 3, 4, and 5 drops. Personally, I prefer for my curve to consist mainly of 2 and 3 drops, unless you're on a reanimation theme. However, if you add in more ramp, this deck can become a lot more fast and consistent. Some classic mana dorks are Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, and Elves of Deep Shadow.
For posterity, here's my personal paper Sidis list: The Deck that Death Forgot. Hope this advice helps!

Thanks so much! These suggestions are great. Here's my thoughts:
Vigor: I didn't know about this card at all! This will create infinite zombies and my combos stay intact! Thanks.
Gravespawn Sovereign: This card needs to be tested, like, yesterday. How haven't I heard of this card?
Stinkweed Imp: I've tested most of the dredgers, and they always felt really lackluster to me. If I put in the whole package, it would probably become a lot better, but I don't want to overhaul half of my deck.
Void Winnower: I actually own this card, but I don't know what to cut for it. All of my reanimation targets provide insane value, but this seems as good as any. Do you have any thoughts on what to cut for it?
Kederekt Leviathan: Once I start to pick up the more pricy instant-speed reanimation, I'll probably put this in as a gotcha! card, but for now, I'll stick to my guns.
Phyrexian Delver: Well, that seems like a no-brainer. How am I not running this?
Thanks so much for these suggestions!

Hi there, this is Voidia/Lime_Blue, the Author of SBT Combo.
This list has a great start to a mid-tier SBT deck and reasonably close to what I might play if I wanted to power-down my own cEDH deck, so you have a great foundation to work with. I'll try to keep my recommendations fairly budget and more in the realm of niche tech, because obviously duals will help the deck, but we already know that.
Living Death: This card is an absolute powerhouse because of the self mill the deck is already trying to do.
Basalt Monolith: Combo's with Mesmeric Orb and doesn't require haste on a creature.
Vigor: Any self-shuffler will do, but the turtle buffalo is my favorite. With a mesmeric orb combo, this will create infinite zombies and won't reset your progress like an eldrazi titan.
Gravespawn Sovereign: A more unconventional zombie lord, he can snowball extra tokens into larger bodies, also reanimates everything when you set up the previously mentioned infinite outlet.
Stinkweed Imp: Stand in for all the high dredge options, Dredge is super powerful in this deck for filling the yard with reanimate targets and getting a statistically guaranteed zombie.
Void Winnower: One of the most powerful early reanimation targets that puts up a quick clock while heavily restricting your opponents.
Kederekt Leviathan: Tech reanimate choice if you need to reset the board of problematic permanents. Works very well with the enchantment reanimates like Necromancy because you get the enchantment back to use on something that will stick around.
Phyrexian Delver: All I need to say is Vilis.
Hopefully these give you some ideas about how to kick it up a notch with this deck. Happy Milling!

Okay so here's a bunch of suggestions that fit Gyruda's requirement and then some things to then take out.
Put in: Arcane Signet, Wake the Dead, Gravespawn Sovereign, Embalmer's Tools, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Disciple of Bolas, Forgotten Creation, Notion Thief, Oversold Cemetery, Skull Prophet, Clever Impersonator, Garruk Relentless Flip, The Cauldron of Eternity, Sire of Stagnation, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded. The cards in your maybeboard seem good too.
In terms of land, there are a lot of cheap options to include that will make a three color deck a lot better: Choked Estuary, Sunken Hollow, Botanical Sanctum, Blooming Marsh, Fetid Pools, Hissing Quagmire, Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor, Woodland Cemetery, Bad River, Ash Barrens, Dakmor Salvage, Exotic Orchard, Witch's Cottage, and stuff like that. Replace the guildgates and bounce lands and a few basics with those if you can.
And lastly if you want to run the petitioners then you should put more of them in, otherwise having just 8 won't do a whole lot for you most of the time other than for fun.

This is so cool! I love how on-theme this is, you did such a good job!!! Black isn't really my color, so a lot of these cards I've never seen before. The artwork is amazing, that Gravespawn Sovereign is pure nightmare fuel. :)

Fuck all that shiz. We're throwing out the old plan and starting from scratch. We're saying fuck the mill main plan and making it a sub plan now.
REMOVE: Worry Beads
From Under the Floorboards - I think we can make more efficient zombies than this tbh.
and add any eldrazi you may have that causes you to shuffle your graveyard back into your LIBRARY
