What I'd take out:

  • Whiptongue Hydra (no synergy and very situational)
  • Pelt Collector (cards like Wight of Precinct Six cost only 1 mana more and get way bigger)
  • Dryad Greenseeker (there are a lot of better options for your deck)
  • Chlorophant (same as Pelt Collector)
  • Ghoultree (Boneyard Wurm is similar, but always only costs 2 mana)

What I'd put in:

Vulturous Zombie , Dawntreader Elk , Yavimaya Granger , Life's Legacy , Caustic Caterpillar

optional:

Grisly Salvage , Stitcher's Supplier , Shadowborn Demon

By the way, Guardian Project is a great card. First time that I see it.

I like the changes! Looks like a solid deck. The last thing I would do to tune it is look at the bottom end of the curve. Gibbering Fiend and Pilfering Imp are cute, but now that you've removed your token producers, you'll have a tough time feeding Demonlord of Ashmouth , Eater of Hope , Xathrid Demon , Shadowborn Demon , and Infernal Offering . You've still got some cards that care about going wide, like Torrent of Souls , Hellrider , and Skirsdag High Priest .

The rate on Hordeling Outburst is good. For a reanimator deck, Skirk Ridge Exhumer , Cryptbreaker , Call the Bloodline , and Silversmith are also good. At the top end of the curve, Abhorrent Overlord could also warrant consideration. Also, in the land slot, if you feel your manabase is good, I like Kher Keep . Speaking of the manabase, Urborg Volcano and Tresserhorn Sinks are better in your deck than Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse . Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace is a good utility land for reanimator. Also, Pyramid of the Pantheon and Molten Slagheap are real bad. Myriad Landscape is miles better.

My favorite low-curve option for pumping out bodies is Hanweir Garrison . Hanweir Battlements would be a sweet addition, as well, and I think it's better in this deck than Hammer of Purphoros . You don't really want to be taxing your lands with a deck full of 5+ drops, and I could say the same for Underworld Connections . It looks like a budget Phyrexian Arena , but it's really not. You're pretty good on card draw at this point, but if you really feel the need for another source, Night's Whisper is a clean, solid option.

Lord of the Void and Shadowborn Demon are both a bit overcosted for equal or less value than Harvester of Souls provides.

Krark's Thumb probably isn't good enough though

Here is a few more fatties you could consider for this deck Scourge of the Throne, Balefire Dragon, Karmic Guide, Baneslayer Angel, Lyra Dawnbringer, Shadowborn Demon, Demonlord Belzenlok, and Overseer of the Damned.

These are some support cards that can help keep your commander in the fight Whip of Erebos, Bastion Protector, Bloodsworn Steward, Command Beacon, Flamekin Village, and Hanweir Battlements.

I would cut: Caustic Caterpillar, Dawntreader Elk, Deathbringer Regent, Deathcap Cultivator, Decimator of the Provinces, Diligent Farmhand, Farhaven Elf, Golgari Raiders, Lotleth Giant, Mulldrifter,Satyr Wayfinder, Stinkweed Imp,Wood Elves, Deep Analysis, Spider Spawning, Worm Harvest, Chemister's Insight, Molderhulk, Shriekmaw, Shadowborn Demon, Night Incarnate, Deathbringer Regent

TL;DR Too much ramp, some non-synergistic cards, board wipes shouldn't be necessary if you are playing aristocrats. Some of the cards depend on casting from your hand rather than ETB. These are just my suggestions feel free to adjust as you see fit.

If I am missing something about these cards let me know. Also, you can look at my decklist if you want to here: Sidisi, Self-Mill, Surveil and Explore I just got the Golgari Guild kit so my Sidisi deck is different now.

A few cards you could consider Shadowborn Apostle or rather a lot of Apostles. If you do end up running them you could also consider Thrumming Stone.

Other just generically good cards are as follows Skirsdag High Priest, Whip of Erebos, Crypt Ghast, Herald of Torment, Archdemon of Paliano, Doom Whisperer, Shadowborn Demon, and Demonlord Belzenlok.

Well that's more of a white effect than Dimir so there really isn't one that I know of.

That being said if you just want the ETB effect Shadowborn Demon is a fair trade.

Dead Weight also should probably be Fatal Push. "You're not in standard anymore Johnny" or at least Disfigure.
