I am definitely a casual player, preferring themed decks and using cards which appeal to me. This usually means that I lose, but I still have fun and it makes my rare wins all the more special! Except my Tron deck, of course. There's only so many ways to build Eldrazi Tron and goddamn it I like winning occasionally frickin' sue me. Outside the aforementioned I like to play lots of EDH, a great format for quirky decks with more of a focus on politics and having fun. Kaalia of the Vast is the reason I am poor.

Good non-spell combo you might want to include (in case commander eats a Darksteel Mutation etc) is Ruin Ghost, which goes infinite with a Plains and Retreat to Coralhelm. Then you can use Emeria Angel, Retreat to Emeria or Hedron Crab as win cons. I've also found that 35 lands is enough for my deck (shameless plug Azorius Awakening - Now With Extra "Nope"!) - with all the card draw and control you just need to make sure the lands you have out stick by countering board wipes and removing important blockers. That combined with your many ways of giving land creatures Vigilance or untapping them should be enough, but you could always get a Crucible of Worlds as insurance if your meta is super sweeper-heavy. Just so you're aware, flickering with Ghostway or returning lands with Luminous Broodmoth brings them back as 0/0 creatures without counters so unless you cast another spell immediately they'll die as a state-based action. Second Mirrorweave suggestion too.

Hello fellow Kaalia enthusiast! Inserts obligatory link to my own deck: Still Better than Dan Brown.... Right, with that out of the way...firstly, I notice that while you call this a reanimator deck and have plenty of ways to cheat things out of the graveyard, you're missing things to stack it with. Cards like Entomb and Buried Alive would let you sculpt your graveyard into the perfect stockpile of threats. If you didn't already have loads I would recommend another actual wrath over Terminus considering you have more ways to get creatures back out of the graveyard than your library, but with that being the case you might be better off with either more unconditional removal (Vindicate/Anguished Unmaking) or even Armageddon if you don't mind having no friends. Aurelia's Fury and Boros Charm are great modal spells too! Honestly can't recommend Reconnaissance highly enough but Dust Corona and Phyrexian Reclamation do work for me. As for creatures, I wouldn't bother with Bloodgift Demon (take Rune-Scarred Demon for loops with Reya and a sac outlet such as Razaketh, the Foulblooded); Bogardan Hellkite (you'll probably do more overall with Warstorm Surge or the new Terror of the Peaks); Indulgent Tormentor (your opponents won't ever hesitate to pay the cost and the body is underwhelming for a demon); Vampire Nighthawk (good card but this deck can do better, for similar cost a Magus of the Moat or Grand Abolisher can make you very hard to assail). I'd suggest considering Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Doom Whisperer and Rakdos, Lord of Riots as other strong picks for potential upgrades. Finally you've got a decent mana base, but I'm a little surprised to see no fetches/utility lands like Volrath's Stronghold considering you have actual legacy duals. How can you be running a Scrubland but be unable to upgrade your Forsaken Sanctuary to a Godless Shrine and still be playing with Temple of the False God? This last one is one of the worst lands out there considering it can easily be a dead draw and doesn't even give you colour - you're running plenty of basics so even an Evolving Wilds would be better in almost every case! Anyways hope that's given you some ideas.

Shadowspear is an excellent Commander card, especially for an aggro deck. Beyond granting two strong keywords at a low cost, that ability deals with gods and allows you to target evasive Voltron builds with removal. From time to time it will even force people to rethink their strategy entirely, for example if they were hoping to make Armageddon/Wrath of God a one-sided affair with Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Boros Charm.
