Thank you for your feedback! I decided to put Negate in the sideboard, having completely forgotten about it while making the sideboard. I didn't review it at all, wanted to see what people like you thought should be in there. I made some other revisions based on your other ideas and will test it out soon. Thanks again!

I love the deck. I playtested some, and came up with the following:
- The deck needs a way to protect Wilderness reclamation from enchantment removal. +3 Negate and -1 Status / Statue -1 Forced Landing -1 Vraska's Contempt in SB to account for it.
- The Vraska's Contempt is really important though, so I'd move the 1 copy to Main and maybe drop an Incubation / Incongruity .
- The Callous Dismissal played very well, and while I wasn't thrilled with it when I initially reviewed the decklist, I really like it after playing. The bounce is nice on the ooze if nothing else or to recharge a Vivien, and of course helps a lot before an attack.
- Frilled Mystic is great in any Wilderness Reclamation deck, since it Flashes even without Vivien and protects the Reclamation while still being a body. I'm not sure what to drop for it, maybe -1 Thief of Sanity and -1 Hostage Taker to get at least 2 of them in and see what you think of them. They have been a 4-of in every Bant Flash deck I have tested.
Overall I really like your theme on it. This is the first Sultai mix I've seen, and the removal is something the Bant mix really misses. Nice work.

Can we take a moment to discuss the name “force of negation”? RND literally combined
Force of Will
and just went “hey... force of negation!”
What a lazy name! And who picked that over “negation of will” given that this seems almost exclusively designed for counter wars

I was Looking around for a deck like this because I had a very similar idea to yours. I don't actually have the cards to build it, online or paper, so I thought I would ask how this build is going for you. The variant I came up with runs Naban, Dean of Iteration , Augur of Bolas , Deputy of Detention , Elite Guardmage , and two Niv-Mizzet, Parun for creatures. 20 Ins/Sor so that Augur can function, and Solar Blaze because it only kills Naban and Niv. It leans more towards control than yours, But if you don't mind I'd appreciate your input.
As for your deck, I would probably main-board Lava Coil / Justice Strike or Lightning Strike / Shock as additional removal. Niv is fantastic against most any deck and wins if you can protect him. Naru Meha, Master Wizard is also an interesting option. As for your sideboard, hmmmm... Well the new teferi and Narset are great against control. I really like Narset's Reversal over Dovin's Veto , let alone Negate , especially if you have Expansion / Explosion to work with. Also, she may not be a wizard, but Lyra Dawnbringer is kind of a good card against aggro.

Hey, nice first Commander deck, lots of good cards here :)
My advice is to improve the manabase. 10x Island is a lot when the majority of the early game Zombies you want to play are black especially one drops. Instead of 10 Islands add more Dimir dual lands to have more black sources while also having blue sources. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would also help.
I see Command Tower in the maybeboard; it's the number one card to add to your deck. Thankfully it's not expensive :) Because of budget concerns if you have to cut some cards to clear enough price for dual lands than I would do that. Cards such as Phenax, God of Deception , Rite of Replication , Coat of Arms . These expensive cards are good, but they aren't vital to the Zombie strategy. Other lands to consider adding:
- Underground River
- Watery Grave
- Tainted Isle
- Morphic Pool
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Unclaimed Territory : can help to cast Kefnet.
- Ash Barrens
- Esper Panorama
- Fetid Pools
Other ways to help to get blue mana are by adding some mana rocks:
Buried Alive is good with Scarab tutoring for three creatures and putting them into your graveyard to then exile with Scarab or reanimate. Wonder is good with Buried giving Scarab and all your other creatures flying. Gravecrawler and Prized Amalgam are also good with Buried because they can be reanimated.
Cards with mana costs are going to be problematic to cast because there's so many Swamps in the manabase. The exception is God-Eternal Kefnet because it's a powerful Zombie. My advice is to cut the other double blue cards such as Cancel and replace them with alternative single blue mana cost cards or all black cards. For example, Arcane Denial or Negate can replace Cancel. Good luck with your deck.

If you have access to them, I would certainly slot in Hallowed Fountain s and Glacial Fortress that way you can more reliably cast your splash colors. A couple card suggestions, if you can cast it, look at Dovin's Veto vs. Negate . With the right mana base its a strict upgrade. Also might suggest Pledge of Unity as a 2 or 3 of to help fill a similar slot that Ajani, the Greathearted 's -2 does. Lastly, in a Proliferate shell, take a look at Sharktocrab ! Not joking, it could fit the curve nicely, and this card can blow games wide open in a mid-range attrition match up. Happy brewing!
