Also, you have a lot of cards with similar total power/toughness. In that case, you might want to consider Wild Pair as that would combo well with your big bois and draw effects.

This deck looks really nice, I've got to say, and appears very dangerous if it goes off right. I do have a couple of ideas you could look into and consider adding, though. I dunno if you've looked into Spore Frog, but this can get out of hand if you constantly revive it, giving you near-immunity to combat damage. Another idea to throw out there is Altar of Dementia which can both help you sacrifice creatures and mill out opponents to win or hurt them. I noticed some shenanigans with reviving lands, so Strip Mine is a decent card that can serve excellent land hate or remove scary lands opponents have. Smothering Abomination can also serve you well, as all of your sacrifices can draw you cards off of their deaths, as well. A decent tutor you could consider is Final Parting if it interests you, allowing you to both put something into the graveyard and grab a card and put it in your hand. Diabolic Intent also works well for this kind of deck, too. Finally, if you really wanted some abusable combos and cheating things in Protean Hulk can really, easily get out of hand.
I hope this was helpful enough, and even if it wasn't you're deck is still really good looking so far!

Magus of the Disk is a definite maybe. As for the others, good cards one and all, but not for this deck. False Prophet has little control (I would want to be able to activate such an effect on my own terms, not at the whim of someone's lightning bolt). Plus, he exiles, and I wouldn't be able to bring them back. That's why I begrudgingly did not include Food Chain. Cataclysmic Gearhulk and Massacre Girl cost one mana more than I'd like to spend on such an effect (if I need to board wipe, it's because an opponent went wide early).
Targeted removal might work well, but if I used it, there are far better options in black or Golgari than white. Path to Exile is great in Stax or Death & Taxes - where the land bump does them no good - or mono-white or Sylesnia, where there's no red, black or blue for better targetted removal. Having said this, I'm a huge fan of Swords to Plowshares, but not, I don't think, for this deck.
As for the combo, it looks amazing. However, I forgot to mention at the beginning that I don't play combo decks. If either of the cards were something that I thought would fit this deck better than anything that's already there, I'd include either or both and potentially have the combo as a last resort game ender when it goes too long. But I have plenty of recursion, some of which is cheaper. So while I respect the competitive quality of the combo suggestion, I respectfully decline.
You are absolutely right about the rats. They're honestly in there because they're 2 CMC and unearth. They really do me no real good. I'm definitely not going for a discard theme here. I do, however, need some (probably more than I have, with or without the rats) CMC 2 or less creatures that fit into the reanimator theme. For that matter, I probably don't need Spore Frog either, but cutting it has the same problem.

Wow, that looks really well thought through. Definitely going to take a closer look this weekend.

Spore Frog isn't that good in cEDH. Then again there is Tymna. But nah. I guess you could play it if you meta has a lot of combat in it.

carlmoores yes normally 40 is too much but look at who the general is. You're going to want to be paying that extra 2 to copy stuff, right? Average cmc may as well be 5.
@ Vash98 you might like these cards: Shrink (not great but it's on theme!), Vizzerdrix (white rabbit), Queen of Ice (queen of hearts maybe?), Illusory Ambusher (cheshire cat), Mad Ratter, Spore Frog (frog footman)

With kamahl as your commander and the right set up, you dont need a huge army of already big creatures, because even your 1/1's are potentially lethal (I make a habit of killing people with Spore Frog to run salt in the wound). Also, cards like Green Sun's Zenith and Natural Order only search for green creatures, so having lots of colorless creatures makes those less effective. And then the last big thing about not overdoing the eldrazi is you have to cast them to get the triggers and they all cost 10+ (for the legendaries anyways) which takes away from you overrunning your opponents.
That's just my take on it. You can literally do any combination of creatures and kamahl will make them better. I've been finding myself using more utility creatures as the deck has evolved because the utility stuff is what I need to stay in the game. Kamahl provides all the offense I need.
