Boza Thanks for the input man... Yeah ive been slowly realizing the same thing. Wish it were a more castable card, but my mana curve is already super high. Obzedat's Aid is definitely the better plan. But its a frightening plan post side board. I love the graveyard shenanigans, but im afraid it will be easy to turn off in post sideboard games. Ill probably just take out the Emrakul for another Elspeth... Dont know what other changes to make though. Again, thank you for the input.

Cybersix, check out the updated list if you have a chance. I don't have many of the cards you suggested, but I did fin an Obzedat's Aid and a Clone, Vesuvan Doppelganger and a few other finds that should help. It playtested pretty well today. thanks again for the advice!

Maybe a couple of Obzedat's Aid or Beacon of Unrest for extra reanimation? I'd also consider a heavy discard/removal package, so that you can stall out your opponents until reanimating/casting Gonti or being able to rip out combo pieces/wincons. Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Fatal Push, Path to Exile, Liliana of the Veil and Tidehollow Sculler all seem like good options.

Koskun Falls and Norn's Annex are both extra pillowfort effects. Unburial Rites and Beacon of Unrest are both other reanimation effects, as is Obzedat's Aid. Grave Betrayal is a bit mana heavy but very good just before a board wipe.

dommes89: I think I have enough recursion in my deck as of now. Not a big fan of reanimation spells that return to hand...Obzedat's Aid is decent but it's too slow for getting a bunch of permanents back for my liking. The reason why Emeria sheperd is so good in this deck is not just because of the synergy with Aminatou, with Ghostly Flicker + Archaeomancer, you can literally get all non-land permanents back into play by flickering a Plains. You should definitely give sheperd a try, I've been a fan ever since its inclusion.

Jthomas3592: I think BSZ is overkill for draw spells and doesn't really synergize with my deck direction. The infinite mana is to enable infinite flicker for other etb permanents like Mulldrifter to draw into our finisher or gonti to just win by exiling everyone's graveyard.

dommes89: I've seen some lists that run Restoration Gearsmith, which could make sense to retrieve combo pieces from the graveyard. It's too bad there's not an ETB version of Hanna, Ship's Navigator, we'll have to run Auramancer if we also want to get back enchantments (Not that Enral's build has many enchantments critical to the strategy. I'm running an instant/sorcery recursion package with Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall, and Salvager of Secrets so that I can be degenerate with Eerie Interlude, so maybe running Obzedat's Aid would be a re-usable tool.

Given the infinite mana capabilities of Eldrazi Displacer+Peregrine Drake, Aminatou, the Fateshifter+Felidar Guardian+Panharmonicon/Oath of Teferi+land, etc. what do people think about Blue Sun's Zenith/Stroke of Genius. I'm leaning more towards Stroke, since I could immediately get it back with a previously mentioned recursion piece and draw out all my opponents. Plus the added utility of drawing to find combo pieces if you don't have infinite mana is the type of flexibility I like.

What do you think of Fortuitous Find, Restoration Gearsmith and Obzedat's Aid as additional recursion or as a replacement for the shepherd due to the lesser CMC ?

The drawback would be that they don't put the cards into play ...
