Fair enough. I've never found the afterlife mechanic all that powerful in commander. Usually I like to be combo'ing with death triggers and recursion with cards like Faith's Reward , Thrilling Encore , Command the Dreadhorde , or Rally the Ancestors . Hope the deck finds you well.

FullmetalWes: I am in the process of building it, but the budget is proving difficult. I looks like it has potential, but I want to bring it to an event to see how it performs. I can see it falling apart to graveyard postboard as it is, but lords could replace Rally the Ancestors and combo cards pushing full aggro. Thanks for the upvote!

Don't you think Allies with a backup Rally the Ancestors -combokill would be better on such a tight budget than humans?

i think the other things o change with the addition of white mana is probably the SB option, as white has some of the most powerful hate cards in the game the ones that come to mind are Anguished Unmaking Stony Silence Path to Exile Kambal, Consul of Allocation Runed Halo Fragmentize
and if your feeling brave Auriok Champion (as in a creture heavy deck like zombies, this card just wins games against burn and deathshadow if it resolves. (its also pretty tight against jund to)
it also provides access to mass reanimation spells like Rally the Ancestors if you wanted to try a more aristocats style strategy

Whenever I feel like one of my decks is slow or clunky, I go through this mental process.
Firstly, how is your mana cost? 3.1 isn't bad, but there are a few high mana cost cards that aren't impactful enough. Debtors' Knell is a seven drop that demands a full turn cycle before it does the same job as Animate Dead . Why not Rally the Ancestors or Return to the Ranks ? Even Whip of Erebos or Seance would be good here.
Too costly for their impact:
- Liliana Vess (consider Liliana, Dreadhorde General when she drops in price)
- Yosei, the Morning Star (I would rather run Rally the Ancestors and possibly win the game on the spot)
- Debtors' Knell (same thing)
I will type the other process in another comment. Give me but a moment.

Rally the Ancestors exiles the creatures you bring back, so they don't "die", and they don't trigger "on death" abilities.
I like the deck, thanks for sharing!

Think you might need more sack outlets
Other good cards for this type of deck
Athreos, God of Passage is really good too.
Rally the Ancestors is automatically awesome.

This deck looks very good. I really like Rally the Ancestors and might include it myself as I've been looking into mass recursion. You have a lot of wincons and drainers, so you may want to cut the more expensive and clunky ones like Vindictive Vampire and Falkenrath Noble unless you feel the redundancy is necessary in your playgroup. Entomb is interesting as well as it's a tutor for stuff like Nether Traitor or Reassembling Skeleton .
I also see you haven't put in the new cards yet, Cruel Celebrant especially. You may want to consider Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Bolas's Citadel as well. They're both high cmc and you may not want to include them for that reason, but new Liliana has so much value with Teysa and Citadel is a lot more efficient in low cmc decks.
