You need a sac outlet to make Cryptolith Rite work, since you need to tap Geist to remove his counter, produce the token, then sacrifice him so he comes back in with another counter.

The combo description was originally explaining that Geist was the only Undying creature that produced untapped tokens, and apparently I typed it out incorrectly. It's fixed now.

Crap, I just realized I messed up formatting my post.

Here's that huge paragraph edited into lines:

1 Crumbling Ashes (you have 2 copies in the deck)
Serrated Arrows (honestly it's not that good. It's slow, and for 4 mana you can do lots of other things)
Trigon of Corruption (see Serrated Arrows. These are both absurdly slow)
Spinebiter (you could get Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon for 1 less mana and it would have higher power. Not to mention Phyrexian Hydra for 1 less mana as well. Don't bother with this awful card even if it does have infect)
Twinblade Slasher is not very good and you have very few ways to buff him to reliability.
Both Liliana, Death Wielder and her tutor card are terrible and you can do better than what benefits she offers over the course of 3-4 turns.
Core Prowler is also pretty terrible. He proliferates once, whoo hoo. That's pretty mediocre for a 4 mana 2/2 with no evasion, and you don't have, say, Mikaeus to make repeated use of his ability.

I agree with the above that Dark Ritual isn't a great card to run. You're not a full-on combo deck like Doomsday, so you don't really need the added card disadvantage that Ritual brings. The Keyrune and Cluestone also are not great.

That's 8 cuts. You should be at 102 after that and only have to cut 2 more cards.

You should look into Midnight Banshee, Soul Snuffers and Carnifex Demon. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and creatures with Undying would also be strong options because -1/-1 and +1/+1 counters cancel each other out, meaning you can re-use their abilities again and again for benefit.
