Standard grixis reanimator. Looks a lot like the old blue black/blue red madness decks with some updates.

Core of the deck:

This remains the same, with the Prized Amalgam, Haunted Dead, Scrapheap Scrounger and Stitchwing Skaab package.

The main enablers of this are Cathartic Reunion and Champion of Wits to help churn through the deck and discard combo pieces. I added champion to help give me stronger turn 3 plays that don't detract from the goal of the deck. It's also not too bad if, God forbid, the game goes long or I flood out.

Secondary Reanimator Package:

In order to make the deck a little more resilient I added a secondary reanimator package. This includes Liliana, Death's Majesty, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, The Scarab God, and Elder Deep-Fiend.

Liliana, Death's Majesty is the heart and soul of this package as she brings back the other big creatures if need be.

Elder Deep-Fiend is flexible in that it works well with the main madness package by sacrificing Stitchwing Skaab and Haunted Dead in order to control the opponent, as well as being a huge creature to reanimate with liliana. It also wipes the board with Kozilek's Return.

The Scarab God is tech I'm testing because it is easy to discard early and hard to kill later. It also reanimates cards for me if I don't have a liliana, or cards in my hand to discard. I understand that it isn't great with amalgam, but it also steals from their graveyard and provide pressure. Also it's nearly impossible to get rid of.

Razaketh, the Foulbloodedis another creature that I'll always discard early if I can for value. It is useful later on as a tutor, as well as being a huge flyer if I have a The Scarab God or Liliana, Death's Majesty to reanimate it with.
