     Very cool build! I love a lot of your card choices like Gruesome Fate & Dina, Soul Steeper. =D

     Nothing too crazy, but a few suggestions! You could cut Eliminate in favour of Abrupt Decay. In that same vein, you've got a lot of creature removal but not as many ways to deal with other permanent types, so I think Acidic Slime would be a better fit than Shriekmaw. I also wonder if Tragic Slip over Eaten Alive might be a good change - even though it doesn't hit Planeswalkers at least it's Instant-speed and only one mana to cast, and still removes Indestructible creatures.

     Cards that I think would be great additions but I'm not sure what the best cuts would be for your playstyle: Birthing Pod, Bastion of Remembrance, Throne of the God-Pharaoh & Pact of the Serpent.

     Only other suggestion is maybe find room for a few more lands. You're not playing that much card draw, so you may find it tough to hit your land drops consistently through turn 5/6.

     Again, love the build! +1 =)

Bastion of Remembrance is a more reliable way for lifegain than other options you have here

Since you choose Desecrated Tomb and Tormod, the Desecrator why not Anax, Hardened in the Forge so you get a 1/1 bat, a 2/2 zombie and a 2/2 satyr when a creature dies or returns form the graveyard?

Some extra on death mileage particularly with your altar (I would consider Ashnod's Altar as well)- Pitiless Plunderer for more mana, Species Specialist or Dark Prophecy for card draw, Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist or Bastion of Remembrance for some life gain/drain action or Butcher of Malakir and Dictate of Erebos so when you lose a creature they do too

I saw you have some recursion why not consider Return from Extinction and it's upgraded form Raise the Draugr? I would cut Exhume for one of these they cost the same and can bring back two phoenixes or ninjas and doesn't have the downside of letting your opponent bring a card back. and they cost less though they don't put on to battlefield so that may not be to your liking

Extra board wipes that won't hit your phoenixes (though will hit your ninjas) are Magmaquake, Earthquake, Faultline and Subterranean Tremors

More damage- Berserkers' Onslaught, Wound Reflection, Gratuitous Violence

Harder to block Phoenixes so you can ninjutsu even easier- Goblin War Drums, Intimidate, Cover of Darkness

Maybe Heartless Summoning-to make your commander cheaper to cast in the graveyard (the only time you should cast this from your command zone is the first time, and anytime is get's exiled as this way you can ignore the commander tax as much as possible)

And don't forget Fervor so all your birds are hasty and can attack as so as they on the field so you ninjutsu even faster

Crow-Umbra on Isshin, The One Who Conquered Heaven

I forgot to add in my last comment, but if you like Bastion of Remembrance, you should check out Impact Tremors. Impact Tremors is GAS in token strats, since the damage happens upon the token ETB, instead of having the extra hoop to jump through of dying. Purphoros, God of the Forge is like a roided version of that, but it's also expensive, so I get it if people avoid it for budget reasons.

SpeedBuster on Isshin, The One Who Conquered Heaven

Crow-Umbra In fact, I have, and it runs surprisingly well, both the mana rocks and the ramp that Sword of the Animist gives while having Isshin in the battlefield makes it even better. However, it struggles a bit with card draw.

I've planned, however, to leave only Bastion of Remembrance as the only Aristocrat element in the deck due to how wide it can go. (ex: Krenko going as wide as putting 21 tokens in one swing) being almost a game finisher. But feel free to give any suggestions :3

Hello!

I'd recommend adding in sac outlets that allow you to kill your own stuff easier, such as Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar. Meanwhile, if you wanted to get more use out of permanents entering the battlefield, you could run Altar of the Brood.

Zulaport Cutthroat is also really nice for providing additional redundancy for Blood Artist, and Bastion of Remembrance fulfills a similar role. You can also include Carnival of Souls if you really wanted to for more mana. Pair with Pawn of Ulamog for more mana shenanigans.

I'd also recommend running more removal, such as Nature's Claim or Return to Nature as something like Rest in Peace or Grafdigger's Cage completely screws you over and you don't currently have many cheap ways to respond to those type of effects. Krosan Grip is also great for this. If you want it on a creature, Reclamation Sage is great as it's fairly cheap and you can recur it; Caustic Caterpillar is another option.

In addition, creatures like Reassembling Skeleton and Gravecrawler are also great for additional sacrifice fodder.

I don't think you have an issue on how to end the game because you can reliably drain the opponent each turn with Contamination's trigger + Blood Artist/Bastion of Remembrance.

I think, however, that maybe Ensnaring Bridge is missing to make the prison full circle.

The deck reminds me of Big Red/Dragon Stompy with Contamination being the "Blood Moon".

Maybe, just maybe, Karn, the Great Creator could occupy 4 slots in the maindeck to tutor for Trinisphere, Chalice of the Void and Ensnaring Bridge.

And maybe even tutor for Wurmcoil Engine or another alt-wincon or a token-generator like Orochi Hatchery or Retrofitter Foundry... not to mention the wide toolbox variety Liquimetal Coating, Mycosynth Lattice, Pithing Needle, Relic of Progenitus, Tormod's Crypt, Executioner's Capsule, Sphere of Annihilation, etc.

Maybe some Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth can help since Ancient Tomb hurts over time.

My least favorite cards in the deck:

Tales of Master Seshiro  Flip (low impact for ) Temple of the False God (not great at ramping and only gives colorless) Thoughtrender Lamia (this one is okay, but discard is not necessarily the most potent interaction) Marauding Blight-Priest

My favorite cards: Bastion of Remembrance The Meathook Massacre Extinguish All Hope Blightcaster Setessan Champion Doomwake Giant Dryad of the Ilysian Grove
