This is a deck I built for a dearest friend that is a begginer. I suggested EDH because it is what I play the most, but we live far from each other so we can't play often. So until she finds a nice playgroup near her I figured a Tiny Leader's deck being more budget and easier to play would be a nice option to start and then eventually upgrade for the EDH version.

The deck is all about sac combos, life gain/loss shenanigans and some reanimation.

Most of the creatures in the deck either come back somehow or create tokens, those are to sac for Yahenni, the others are there for the synergy or utility.

The best combo in the deck is Ashnod's Altar + Geralf's Messenger + Nim Deathmantle , you sac the Messenger to the Altar he comes back to play with the undying and you get 2 mana, sac him again you get 2 more mana (4 total) pay those 4 for the Nim Deathmantle trigger, bringing Geralf's Messenger back, repeat as much as you want. It goes infinite and with Geralf's Messenger's ability it kills your(s) opponent(s).

You can replace Geralf's Messenger with some other creatures in the deck that come back by themselves, like Butcher Ghoul and Wingrattle Scarecrow. Weaponcraft Enthusiast can also go infinite here, make him enter with 2 servos, sac the servos to get 4 mana, equip Deathmantle, sac him he comes back with 2 more servos, repeat. But these 3 creatures don't do anything in the combo because they don't do anything else by themselves, like the Messenger that does damage. Instead these creatures need something else in play, like Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist to kill people or Grim Haruspex if you wanna draw your whole deck for some reason.

Blade of the Bloodchief seems like it was made for Yahenni, Undying Partisan, pure synergy.

Westvale Abbey  Flip makes sense in the deck, can give you more tokens to sac if you have some unused mana or give you a huge creature to kill someone.

Any help to improve the deck would be welcome. Thank you.
