Hi, first off I'd like to say that I love the concept of this deck and many of the choices in it. I do have a few suggestions that I feel would make this list a bit stronger.

Firstly, I have a few suggestions for your reanimation package. While Debtors' Knell, Reya Dawnbringer, and Sheoldred, Whispering One are objectively strong cards, in my experience I've found them lacking. Your mileage may vary but for me they often eat removal before they can really get to work, thus not making them worth the mana investment in my eyes. I'm also not entirely sure if Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker works with Elenda or not. I think her power needs to be 1 or less as she's leaving and if she's buffed with a bunch of counters I don't think she'll get the reanimation trigger.

All of those previous cards I mentioned I would suggest cutting. Luckily this color pairing offers a myriad of quality replacements that are efficient and affordable. Animate Dead is a classic choice for graveyard recursion and is quite versatile as it hits every graveyard. Victimize might be up your alley as it can double as a sacrifice outlet, only not for Elenda. Unburial Rites is another quality recursion spell since it has flashback, so you can get Elenda back twice with the same card, or hold it up in your graveyard for another creature. There are also a few good single-use spells in both colors, namely Zombify, Resurrection, Breath of Life, False Defeat and Miraculous Recovery (this last one might be of particular interest due to its instant speed and +1/+1 counter synergy). Depending on your budget I would also suggest Necromancy.

Your card draw seems a bit lacking with just four outlets, and I think it would benefit from at least a Phyrexian Arena or an Erebos, God of the Dead.

May I also recommend Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter over Curse of the Cabal? Both seem to serve a similar purpose, but I think Vish Kal fits your strategy better. He gets +1/+1 counters from being a sacrifice outlet, and can use those counters as removal.

I like your wincons, but I believe a Nim Deathmantle wouldn't be out of place, as I've heard that Elenda, Ashnod's Altar, and the Deathmantle can create an infinite loop of ETB/LTB triggers.

I hope this was of some help. I really like this deck's concept and these are just my suggestions for it. Happy brewing!

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'm not fully sure whether you want a Kokusho-focused deck with a lifegain subtheme, or a lifegain-focused deck with a Kokusho subtheme, so I'll give you tips for both:

Kokusho-focused:

You generally want a lot of ways to find your Kokushos, as well as ways to return them from the graveyard, so I'll focus on those two.

If you're focused on more of a lifegain theme, I'd go with some of the following:

I should also say that I'm generally not a fan of cards that do nothing but gain you life. Chaplain's Blessing and Alms of the Vein can be good, sure, but they generally don't actually do anything.

Regardless of which version you're actually looking for, I would also recommend adding in some more removal, probably at least 5 copies total of the following: Doom Blade, Murder, Oust, Condemn, Dismember.

In any case, good luck with your deck!

If you're using Zombify maybe use Emrakul, the Aeons Torn for a big creature and also i think Thought Scour will be good get creatures to graveyard and you draw a card.

MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards

meowndabout, I have been torn about the fact that this list is very, very long, yet more expensive cards like that one are missing from the list (even though their high cmc is not because of their inefficiency, but rather to balance out the fact that they return cards directly to the battlefield; in fact, I almost always would rather have Zombify over Raise Dead)

So I gave it some more thought, and I think if this list is going to be useful, it has to be short enough that it doesn't show too many strictly worse cards but also long enough to include the best ones.

I'm in the process of updating the list, and will tag you again when it's done.

Thank you for the comment, because the mere question about Obzedat's Aid led me down a path of inquiry and discovery to refine this list.

Hm. Whilst I like the idea of Gisa and Geralf and reviving my creatures, I don't see myself doing that often here, as I mostly derive creatures from non-creature cards, and as such, they may hurt me more than help.

I can see Cemetery Reaper to hurt the opponents grave, and Zombify in a pinch if I want something back.

And as for Stir the Sands... you're probably right. It is a bit iffy to have out there, so I think I'll remove it for now.

What about some Cemetery Reaper or Gisa and Geralf? I sadly need to say that i dont like Stir the Sands because it is so expensive, also if you cycle it its meh in my eyes. Also Rise from the Grave could be swaped with Zombify for a cheaper revive if you want. I hate expensive cards because often you dont have enough mana to play more then one card in a bad situation...
