Goblin Bombardment is a two drop sac outlet that lets you sac an Egg and do 1 damage to another one.

Spawning Pit is another two drop sac outlet that has potential while also being a source of Spawn tokens which can become Eggs with Mirror Entity , Shields of Velis Vel or Volatile Claws .

Strionic Resonator can copy the whenever an Egg dies trigger letting you put two creatures onto the battlefield.

Eldrazi Spawn tokens are good with Mirror Entity who can turn them into Eggs until end of turn. You can sac a Spawn token to make one colorless mana without needing a sac outlet and when it's an Egg it triggers Atla.

The_Epic_Dog on How do Changeling Tribal Instants ...

Tribal instants and sorceries, like the ones with changeling or All Is Dust for Eldrazi, are instants and sorceries that also have a creature type, but are not creatures. This means that you could use From Beyond to find All Is Dust , as it is an Eldrazi, but you can't use Worldly Tutor to find it because All Is Dust not a creature.

Instants and sorceries go straight from the stack to the graveyard, and never enter the battlefield. This means it won't trigger abilities that trigger when a creature of a certain type enters the battlefield. However, if the ability was "Whenever you cast a Zombie spell, target player loses 1 life.", the ability would be triggered by Shields of Velis Vel or any of the other changeling instants.

Shields of Velis Vel , Nameless Inversion , Ego Erasure , and Crib Swap all have changeling. What does the mean? How can an Instant have a(ll) creature type(s)?

If I have a card saying "Whenever a Zombie enters the battlefield, target player loses 1 life.", do these Instants cause that card to trigger?

Hybrow on Turn and Face the Strange - Changeling EDH

That was an option.. as was Horde of Notions , I am still debating who should lead, this is a brand new build for me (still waiting on a card order to arrive with about 50 of the cards, lol)

But right now I am thinking Sliver Overlord because he give me the ability to steal other peoples creatures with the use of Blades of Velis Vel , Shields of Velis Vel , Wings of Velis Vel and Amoeboid Changeling . (change your Ulamog to a sliver and then take him for my own). Add the fact that he can also tutor any of those cards if someone has an especially dangerous guy on the field.

Ok, a few suggestions. As per the description you state you want graveyard shenanigans, and im assuming that's in reference to Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. I have my own variation of this deck: Knighty-knight that you could take a look at that does just tha.

Looking over your deck list, I see some tweaks that should be made if this is a direction you want to go. First off, you only have one outlet to easily get Haakon into the graveyard that I can see in Buried Alive. I'd recommend a few more to facilitate some consistency. Entomb & Final Parting both work like Buried alive and Peace of Mind , Call the Bloodline , and Markov Dreadknight are discard outlets for if you draw Haakon.

You should be getting some value from this recursion other than knights that wont go away. Door of Destinies is a great anthem effect that gets bigger with each spell. On top of this, there are spells like Nameless Inversion , Crib Swap , and Shields of Velis Vel that have changeling. Which means that they are Knights while in your graveyard. Haakon will allow you to play these spells over and over again.

Last suggestion is relating to your equipment package. I'm not against running equipment, but i'm certainly not a fan. However, there is one equipment that I am surprised is not being run more often and thats Kusari-Gama . Such a great effect that can punish an opponent when forced to block.

I hope this helped a bit.

Cybersix on thought 1, yes, I think that the first sand warriors would be protected by Hazezon's ability since they're all exiled at the same time, although I'm not sure. When they all return, Hazezon's ability will trigger again in the next upkeep and make more warriors, but if they kill Hazezon, then all the sand warriors will vanish. Anyway, Teferi's Protection is a great card and I think that I wouldn't mind putting one in here.
About the 2nd though, yes, there is a card that makes a one-sided boardwipe. It's Shields of Velis Vel. I tried it on the deck, but it usually becomes a brick on the hand since it only works with Hazezon on the battlefield, so I preffer using cards with more synergy with the rest of the deck.
