Sidisi, Brood Tyrant Discussion

I have a guide/repository for card-draw cards if you want to peruse it. You may find some cards with more synergies that you like. Weight of Memory can be decent for self-mill strategies, etc. EDH Card-Draw Master List
As for cuts... let's see...
I don't love Forgotten Creation, personally. I always felt like I had non-creatures I wanted to keep in my hand all the time. Your deck is a bit more creature-heavy than mine, so perhaps it's pulling its weight.
You have the necessary components for Gravecrawler combos, but not a ton of tutors to make them reliable to get out. As such, perhaps one of the weaker payoffs for that can go, such as Vengeful Dead or Plague Belcher. If you're using Buried Alive to find the pieces then you'll only ever need one, and Diregraf Captain is an excellent choice. That said, your deck is fairly token-heavy so perhaps the incidental groupslug is being underappreciated by me.
Personally I think Endless Ranks of the Dead is a bit of a trap unless you're all-in on the token strategy, such as a Ghoulcaller Gisa or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant zombie deck. Very fun, but a bit win-more unless you can really make it pop off. I've never been satisfied with it's performance in my deck, but you're going wider than I do so perhaps it's fine. Something to think about though.
It all kind of depends on how much you're self-milling. You have a decent amount, but you aren't exactly going all-in. As such, Grimoire of the Dead may be a liability. I have played around with that card in some of my decks and it just seems to get removed before it works. When it did I usually won the game, though. It's fun, but unreliable. Rise of the Dark Realms is obviously more reliable but it's very pricey.
I never found the self-mill in my deck as useful as regular card-draw. There's not a ton of point to have 15 zombies in the graveyard if you only want to cast one or two of them over and over. There are payoffs, of course, but to me it feels like being in the middle-ground is way worse than being all-in or having minimal self-mill. I just hate milling over answers or Rooftop Storm!
I don't think you're running enough to make Nightscape Familiar worth it.
Honestly, I don't love Havengul Lich a ton. The color restriction makes it hard to use and you have lots of ways to bring out your own zombies already. He's better in a more mill-your-opponents strategy IMO.
Tymaret Calls the Dead is a bit of a weaker card. Exiling your own zombies is a bit of a non-bo (unless your self-mill strategy is really rolling). The lifegain can be nice but I'd rather run Whip of Erebos if that's the goal, or a better card-draw card if that's the goal.

I’ve always wanted to play a Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck. Just seems fun.

Mythos of Brokkos seems like a good tutor with Muldrotha and have some recursion if you can't have your commander.
Kaya's Ghostform is a great protection for Muldrotha.
Syr Konrad, the Grim can do a shitload of damage I think with self mill.
Acidic Slime is just great!

Hi, CivilizedSin! Sultai_Sir here. I was wondeing if you could help me out with my version of Sidisi, Brood Tyrant. She, too was my first actual deck in Commander, and I've been trying to refine it. Here's the link: The Deck that Death Forgot. Thanks!

I feel a bit like a different Sultai commander like Tasigur, the Golden Fang or The Mimeoplasm might be a little bit better because it seems like the only thing Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is doing in this deck is milling 3. Considering that your win conditions don't require any creatures for sacrifice and this is not an attrition deck, you're most likely going to be milling a max of roughly ~9 cards with Sidisi per game. I know Sidisi can be competitive, but personally, I don't really see the reason to play her over the aforementioned, at least in this scenario. The main deck is good though.

Small gripe: The current letter convention is unconventional. "G" being a thing isn't a factor in school or video games. An easier point of reference might be to adopt what video games do and include the "S" tier for the Titans and have the most casual of commanders in the "F" tier. Unless that was your intention to defy the norm.

You don't need Rancor. You've got Splinterfright.
Keep it simple. Get cards in the grave. Play cheap big creatures that put Tarmogoyf to shame. Use your creatures to take care of whatever problems you have.
Artisan Fiend, Spinterfright and Nighthowler can all be snatched by Unearth. So...
If you want to use Claim for redundancy, +4 Tarmogoyf or the +4 Boneyard Wurm. Myself, I like a little p/t in case they Relic or RIP. Keep it around til you get your answer. Maybe Grim Flayer? But if you play more 1-2cc ETB's, I could see more Claim. Try a 1 of Call of the Death-Dweller.
What are your problems? Creatures. Artifacts. Enchantments.
1 Plague Engineer
1 Reclamation Sage
1 Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Nameless Inversion
Costs three but he's got a 3/4 body so why not?
4 Force of Negation out of the side. You may want to board in 4 Force of Negation for RIP. I don't know how else you're going to beat it without a counterspell with Flashback. Play some number of Life from the Loam with Raven's Crime.
I don't know. Keep it together. Streamline the idea because the deck you'll be playing against, people have refined it to hell the past few years.

I plan to write a primer for the deck soon, but list isn't quite finalized yet. The deck has several winning combos and the idea is to assemble one as quick as possible and be able to easily pivot strategies based on your opponents.
The main idea is that once the entire deck is milled either using Hermit Druid or Eternal Scourge + Food Chain mana to cast Sidisi, Brood Tyrant infinite times, flashback Dread Return to get Necrotic Ooze or Thassa's Oracle to win the game. You can also get back Eternal Witness returning Walking Ballista to hand and cast that for .
If all else fails. Zombie Beats!
