hi TheBooman i would definately suggest my older non-combo build.
Basically a self-mill deck packed lots of creatures like Boneyard Wurm,Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord,Splinterfright,Kessig Cagebreakers,Izoni, Thousand-Eyed,Hallowed Spiritkeeper and of course Brawn.
Other than that i don't have a good idea because i am actaully trying to improve the combo and those cards although really good they are a little slow for my playgroup.

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.

Hi fellow necromancer centaur,
you can try:
1.Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord + Splinterfright / Golgari Grave-Troll / Nighthowler and similar creatures and bomb the entire table.
2.Kessig Cagebreakers / Izoni, Thousand-Eyed
3.Vizkopa Guildmage + Gnaw to the Bone and one shot the entire table
4. By far my favorite is Magister of Worth. Both effects benefit you and if they pick the mass reanimation you can sacrifice her in response to her trigger, she goes to the graveyard and you get to stack it so she enters last so you get 1 more time the trigger, you can politic you way through it. Really amazing card
and if you are having trouble with blue mages and combo Mindslicer. I cant count how many games he has won me.
my a little more tuned and combo deck: Karador Hulkweaver Chieftain

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.
Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.
I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.
There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.
Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.
Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.

Have you considered Splinterfright? It mills like the Nyx Weaver, while growing like the Nighthowler. It also works really well with Deadbridge Chant; though it may be a bit on the expensive side, it seems like it would fit here as a one of. Hope this helps.
