"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Removal: Capsize , Bedevil , Hero's Downfall , Chaos Warp , Kolaghan's Command , Reality Shift , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Vraska's Contempt , Rakdos Charm , Price of Fame , In Bolas's Clutches , Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , Fleshbag Marauder , Unstable Obelisk , Vandalblast , By Force , Shatterstorm , Hostage Taker , Yawgmoth's Vile Offering , Settle the Score , Dark Impostor , Hour of Glory , Sever the Bloodline , Silence the Believers , Spread the Sickness , Slave of Bolas , Electrodominance

This will sound bad, but you will want cheap, mediocre zombies. Dread Wanderer and Stitcher's Supplier have slightly niche abilities, but having zombies low on your curve is key to allowing you to abuse Varina's amazing card filtering ability. For 2-drops, Blood Scrivener , Graveyard Marshal , Metallic Mimic , Mummy Paramount , Nightscape Familiar , Relentless Dead , Wight of Precinct Six and Withered Wretch all have some decent abilities. Some of them are just efficient beaters, while others serve as reanimation, lords, token production, card draw and ramp, as well as graveyard hate, which is very important to have in an edh deck. Here is my list if you want to check it out.

Thank you for the suggestion! I added Nesting Dragon, Skeletal Vampire, Nightscape Familiar, Grave Titan. Would these cards work? I didn't want to use Altar of Dementia as I will be mostly sacrificing tokens with 1 or 0 power, and didn't want to use Chandra's Ignition because it might kill my other important creatures, or not really do anything to opponents. If you describe to me the benefits of the latter card I will put it in the deck. Thank you!

Play cards that say "When x happens, make a token" rathar than cards that say "Make x tokens" Examples of what to play: Dragon Broodmother, Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper, that dude that makes thrulls, and that spider that makes more when your opponents cast spells. Obviosly some of these are not in your colors but they show what I mean.

Also conduit of storms is bad and you should play more of the "Whenever a creature dies, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life."

And where is Nightscape Familiar and Altar of Dementia. Chandra's Ignition is a real game ender
