Sticking with named characters here: Fumiko the Lowblood,Rakka Mar, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Tymna the Weaver, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Masako the Humorless and Sakiko, Mother of Summer are all ladies I have enjoyed playing with in EDH. I think all of them fit your general strategy fairly well as well.

Totally agree there. I just stubbornly liked Angel of Despair's art better. Finally swapped with Ashen Rider. Also swapped out Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for Emrakul, the Promised End, since Gitaxias was only effective when reanimated and was weak for sneak attack use. I keep the not so heavy hitters but great abilities cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One & Griselbrand since they can be cast by traditional methods (mana) by this deck if necessary.

Hate: Citadel of Pain, Mana Barbs; yes, both hurt you, but with Gisela, Blade of Goldnight out, it is a pain in the butt.
Creatures: Iroas, God of Victory, Ankle Shanker, Aurelia, the Warleader, Gahiji, Honored One Sheoldred, Whispering One
not much beyond that, as when I played Saskia, her non-creature spells were horrible, and there is a basic toolbox to pick and choose from.

Mindslicer is an incredibly powerful creature that trashes hands when it dies. Reanimate it with Chainer repeatedly, then sacrifice it to any of your outlets to destroy control players.
While a little expensive, Sheoldred, Whispering One is a powerful multiplayer bomb that demands an immediate response. Culls your opponents creature for reanimation, and brings back yours without Chainer's downside exile clause.
Caged Sun is incredible in any monocolored EDH deck; you'll never run out of mana to cast things, plus it gives your creatures an additional anthem effect, including things stolen with Chainer.
Another expensive but great card is Demonic Tutor. Grabs exactly what you want for the low price of 2 cmc.

I've got a Maralen list (Maralen's Pact) that's fun.
An important side of Stax that is often overlooked is Disruption. Think Mind Slash, Bottomless Pit, Liliana of the Veil or Oppression. Cards like Waste Not will fuel this side with fodder. While Maralen herself creates a soft lock with these effects, Mind Slash specifically pairs well with Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos.

In BUG colors you get the whole infect package. Green and black offer you the critters or enchantments (i.e. Glistening Oil) whileblue let's you abuse proliferate mechanics.
A word of forewarning, playing infect makes you the target. The bulk of infect critters are typically small bodied which means it's harder to push through. Of course, there's way around that and if you manage to poison everyone with a single counter you can easily abuse proliferate to win.
I've seen infect Atraxa decks and they can be brutal. However, her proliferate ability seems slow to me if you just expect her to do it all. The addition of white doesn't seem to add much to your strategy.
As per the reanimation part. I prefer passive reanimation spells like Oversold Cemetery over single use spells like Reanimate but if reanimation is the theme you're going with then Necromancy, Dread Return (works nicely with the zombs), Vigor Mortis, Animate Dead, Beacon of Unrest, Life/Death, ect. all work. Tortured Existence and Phyrexian Reclamation are great budget options too and work great. Some creatures like Sheoldred, Whispering One, Hell's Caretaker, Coffin Queen, Doomed Necromancer are all solid options.
Note that some of these let you pick a critter from ANY graveyard. That is why I would recommend Mesmeric Orb with Sidisi. You can make so many zombs and it fills everyone's yard- ripe for the picking.
