Life / Death
All lands you control become 1/1 creatures until end of turn. They're still lands.
Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield. You lose life equal to its converted mana cost.

seems like you have an awesome sidisi deck here. :D
I really like cards like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , Necrotic Ooze and Alchemist's Refuge . If you like the Basalt combo, I can highly recommend you Aphetto Alchemist . Also Life / Death , it can be really helpful after a board wipe.
What exactly does Riftsweeper here?
But great deck! +1

"Other" Section Observations:
Burgeoning good card, but you have alot of multiple lands per turn cards
Constant Mists solid
Crop Rotation Unnecessary imo
Life / Death Can only use one spell, can prob find something that is more impactful to the deck
Sylvan Advocate Good because it's a 2/3 for 2 mana, but only adds significant value with commitment to land creatures
Sylvan Library V good card, excels if you maintain lifegain sub-strategy
Titania, Protector of Argoth Only good if you commit to the graveyard recall sub-strategy
Traverse the Outlands fantastic, can this be turned into a win condition?
Volcanic Offering fun af, but probably better options for the card slot
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger Print out Business Cards saying "GG" for when you play this
Zuran Orb A must have if you commit to graveyard recall + lifegain sub strategies
World Breaker kinda sucks for 7 mana
Bane of Progress a conditional 6 drop is risky; amazing sideboard card in our meta
Exsanguinate Love it.
Your non-creature game is strong, but your damage output is weak and is currently the biggest flaw facing your deck. Your best bet imo is to either rip out creatures and synergize removal + damage or add in a few more big trample creatures. I think your comparative advantage lies in creatures: you'll consistently have an ungodly mana pool to take advantage of them, and you're already relying on creatures for this concept to work.
Some good creatures for this deck:

I think you're going about the Karador package all wrong. Where is Grand Abolisher ? You have access to the fastest tutors in the game with black, green, and white. You're not running Enlightened Tutor . This deck can be one of the fastest decks around. It can compete with Prossh and Breya. It should be the longer the game goes, the stronger this deck gets because the ability to cast Karador cheap late game. To be honest, I rarely ever cast Karador. I use Karador for the colors only.
Stack the deck with as many tutors you can. Don't skimp on the reanimator package, especially the 3 Dance of the Dead , Necromancy , Animate Dead , and Life / Death . Those are you bread and butter combo peaces. White has tons of tutors for enchantments. You want cards that can dump any card or creature into your grave. The whole dredge ability is too slow.
Razaketh, the Foulblooded + Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead / Dance of the Dead / Necromancy = Win by having Leonin target Animate, which you can sack Leonin to Razaketh which in turn brings back Animate Dead starting a loop. Goes infinite with any free sack outlet. Use cards like Blood Artist to to win.
Of course Raz is hell to cast, but you cheat him out to your graveyard and animate him. He's a combo piece all by himself.
Step 4: Once Razaketh is on the battlefield, use his ability to fetch Life / Death . You cast the Life spell from Life/Death for . Now all your lands become 1//1 creatures to sack to Razaketh.
Use the lands to fetch Leonin Relic-Warder and Lion's Eye Diamond . Cast Lion's Eye for , now activate Lion's Eye by discarding your hand to gain , putting Leonin into your grave. Sack another land to fetch Animate Dead . Use the from Lion's Eye to cast Animate Dead and reanimate Leonin Relic-Warder, targeting Animate Dead with Leonin's ability. Now you have infinite tutors (you still lose 2 life from Raz for each tutor).

Haha to be fair Skulloelegy, I am very egoistical ^^
Aside from the narcissism of course, same here it is a very cool concept and way to win! I am a degenerate though so if it were me I would also add in things like Faith's Reward , Second Sunrise , and Armageddon for some broken and dirty shenanigans. Life / Death is also super useful. Ahhh Abzan you have so many options for cool builds :3
Feel free to ask for any advice or perspective, totally within my forte! Check out my other decks if ya like you might get a flash of inspiration somewhere along the line!

I like the new look of your deck! Keep up the good work, man!
Actually, I would like to support the suggestion from PookandPie about more fast mana lands.
Even considering that you don't have many creatures in the deck, you should still have at least one green mana from Gaea's Cradle from game to game. And when in some games you will tap it for , or , you will be glad that you have this land. And you can use your Life / Death in conjunction with Gaea's Cradle to create insane ramp.
And both of these lands are very good targets for your Crop Rotation
