Very cool build! Seems like a lot of fun when it goes off.

Have you considered 1-2 Hooting Mandrills and/or Gurmag Anglers as potential top-ends? They can drop turn 3-4 pretty consistently if your beetles/feeders are stalling out, especially if you were to swap out some of your Jungle Hollows for Evolving Wilds.

If you're not feeling the Delve, there are some other cool, synergistic cards that come to mind:

Love it as is, just thought I'd share... Happy brewing!

i actually havent been able to play this deck yet. Its my current project. As quickly as this deck can mill the opponent, i dont think that any more than 2 copies are needed. Also, with Jace's Phantasm we arent too concerned about creatures as well as the additional blocker and life gain from Shamble Back, we are fairly well protected. That is something that is definitely going to need to be tested thoroughly.

Thanks for the suggestion, I think I like the added remove of Shamble Back over Cemetery Recruitment. Now that I am thinking about it, pulling a creature from the graveyard for 2 mana is way less supportive of the delirium side of the deck, so it's off to the sideboard for that.

I have also been thinking about Shamble Back as a possible addition but I am worried about focusing too hard on the zombie production mechanic, what do you guys think?

k I see were ur going but you need two more things.... tokens and early game. I have one card that solves it both, I love it and u should run a playset

So I can totally understand getting back into the game after X years and not having much a collection- and then looking to brew on a budget? Yeah, it can be a bit tough.

I like the build though. It's probably safe to say that if you can get your hands on 2 more copies of the Anointed Procession that's probably the first\ best place to upgrade. I know you don't want to buy more singles, but it is the best card in a token deck. It also doesn't rotate for the next 2 years, so you can play it forever.

However, sticking with a more budget friendly theme here, I'd look to get the Start to Finish up to 4. That gives you more tokens and more hard removal. Another good removal spell that is super cheap is Bone Splinters. Fits perfectly into a deck like this. The glue that you're missing though, is an uncommon Zulaport Cutthroat. He's definitely a 4 of in this build.

I would suggest moving the Authority of the Consuls to the sideboard. It's good against aggressive matches, but you shouldn't need it in the main deck. I also think you can go without the Cartouche of Solidarity. It's ok, but I think the Start is a better card. You can probably get more consistency from the deck if you remove Shamble Back, Oketra, The Captain, and the Master Trinketeer for more of the above cards.

If you're interested, here is a link to a site (one of my favorites) that has a build similar to yours that might give you a few more ideas. Either way, welcome back to the fold and good luck with the deck.

Hope this helps.
