Nice job here. I am using your deck as a prototype for mine. It does well. I am finding that I don't have enough sac fodder. Gruesome Menagerie does help, but comes in late. Other recursion is a bit to clunky for the speed I am going with.

Hi, I think Knight of the Ebon Legion should be in Mainboard, and Midnight Reaper would come in handy in a creature-heavy Deck. Necromancer Lili rotates, so i'd remover her, the number of zombies in this Deck isn't sufficient to support Zombie Lili, i m O. Cutting those Walkers you could cut the lands to 23. Then i'd remove Aid the Fallen , Add 4 Knight of the Ebon Legion , 2 Midnight Reaper , and 1 more Spawn of Mayhem . Spark Harvest is a bit tricky, so maybe add a playset of Orzhov Enforcer in its stead? 2 Gruesome Menagerie might fit in here, -1 Savage Gorger , -1 Rotting Regisaur . Have Fun!

Cool deck man, I've been playing around with some dredge/reanimator concepts & haven't really found anything that i really like yet but i do like your approach with Gruesome Menagerie + ETB triggers.
One card that seems like a great fit here is Gutterbones . It would basically be a less-extreme version of Narcomoeba in that it's not quite as good to dredge/explore (but still very good) while being much better from the opening hand. Also works well as repeatable sac fodder for Vraska. Your deck seems like it wants to aggro out to some extent so a t1 2/1 getting in that 4-6 damage off the bat can be huge.
I also feel like Isareth is really powerful here with the Explore creatures especially, and you could run 2-3 so it's more than just a toolbox option. Given how crucial recursion is to your deck, increasing the sources of that will help with consistency. In any synergy-dependent deck, I usually try to have at least 8 cards that can perform each core function.
Lastly, a sideboard idea that would be great against weenies or tokens is Plague Mare . I've been playing it as a one-of in a different deck (a weird Arisotcrats/Vannifar hybrid) and it is surprisingly clutch.

If you had a three drop in the deck, then Gruesome Menagerie would really fill your deck as you could hit Supplier, Shaman, and a three drop.

Eloquent elaboration guys, still I've to admit that I find myself rather on Scathainn's side. Clever sexist clickbait stays clever sexist bullshit as language forms reality and we're all just better than that...

Ive been playing an undergrowth deck for a while now and I think i can offer some insight. Windgrace Acolyte is just too expensive for a 3\2 flier. Kraul Foragers is better in the sideboard to bring in against aggressive decks. Hatchery Spider is junk. Glowspore Shaman and Stitcher's Supplier are amazing and often enough to keep the gas going. Im on the fence about Molderhulk but hes a pretty sweet pay off for the deck espeically with memorial. Jadelight is also great but Ive been playing Charnel Troll as a 3 drop since hes easy to feed and you can get him back with Gruesome Menagerie . Hope that helps

Have you thought about Gruesome Menagerie in this deck ? Works with almost all your creatures in the 3 categories Prey / Predator / Scavenger... I also liked that classification in 3 types, it felt natural and helps grasp how the deck is constructed :)
