Tortured Existence + Archfiend of Ifnir. As long as there is a creature in graveyard and a creature in hand, just keep swapping the 2 creatures to activate -1/-1 counters on opponent.

Carnifex Demon + (Baleful Ammit, Soulstinger, or Carnifex Demon) for more -1/-1 counter spam.

Nest of Scarabs mixed in with these cards really can get kind of crazy.

A few good opening hand strategies:

Dark Ritual and cycle the Archfiend of Ifnir and Reanimate it.If land is an issue, refuse to play any cards and rely on downsizing to 7 cards each turn to activate -1/-1 counters is an option at this point, I have actually pulled off a victory in this scenario before.

If Reanimate or Animate Dead is in my opening hand, I will often let the opponent go first so that I can draw first and then instead of playing a land I discard Carnifex Demon and then bring it into play turn 2 with Reanimate or Animate Dead

Another strategy is get Sire Of Insanity turn 1 with Dark Ritual + Entomb + Reanimate/Animate Dead. Or Dark Ritual + Pale Rider of Trostad + Reanimate to play it from opening hand... Opponents often scoop after turn 1 Sire Of Insanity
