Nice! Love to see another RB-based reanimator player. My list is here: NEED 4 T1 GRISELBRAND
I run the version that just runs a Bayou to cast Reverent Silence for free, but I know the Wear / Tear version is just as viable, so up to you. I will definitely say I recommend the heck out of a Grave Titan in the sideboard. It's a very good option for when you need to play a fairer game post-board because it's pretty easy to hardcast. I also prefer Tidespout Tyrant mainboard over Ashen Rider because it's far more flexible. Just as good against UB reanimator and Sneak&Show, but also fair game against Death and Taxes, Delver, and most other strategies tbh. You lose the ability to hardcast, but I think it more than makes up for it. The games you have to hardcast something are definitely not in your favor anyway!

My girlfriend just asked me to put Slivers back together. Anyways, as far as the land base goes I'm gunna list. Things out by cost/relevancy
duals I know eww reserved list but if you got em or can proxy em play em
fetches they're getting their reprint in modern horizons 2 but still stupid expensive - but the fixing is just so good!
Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, City of Brass, Tarnished Citadel, Mana Confluence, Forbidden Orchard, Exotic Orchard, Meteor Crater, Pillar of the Paruns, Ancient Ziggurat, Path of Ancestry, Thran Quarry, Gemstone Mine, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge
I'm not a mega fan of the depletion lands but they're excellent if you're on a budget :)
shocks - you already got a few I'll recommend getting the rest
Utility lands very overpriced cardboard but the power is definitely there
From there, if those cards are out of budget/you cannot proxy I'd go with the Triomes, battlebond lands Sea of Clouds, check lands Hinterland Harbor, and lastly the painlands Battlefield Forge beyond those the lands start becoming too inefficient and you will be targeted playing slivers. Even if you're not the threat having a slow land base is a death sentence. Hope this helped :)

Well met, young callant! I have some suggestions with your names on them. Such a strange coincidence.
Jests aside, let's do this.
So, I see budget, I see counters, I see mill. Let's start with mill.
One does not simply play a graveyard deck bereft of the following: Satyr Wayfinder finds some lands whiles stocking the bin. Grisly Salvage is morbidly efficient, finding creatures and lands. Winding Way does the forenamed, whereupon it sometimes betrays you (Don't look it in the eye). Grapple with the Past brings stuff back and loads the bin. It feels great. Funeral Rites is fine and straight-forward. Ransack the Lab is cheap whiles bearing efficacy.
If you're feeling betaken to your graveyard chicanery, Perpetual Timepiece does an absolutely lovely job of stocking the bin.
Ahem. DEATH'S OASIS?! It mills, it fills, and eventually it kills. Moreover, it is three to cast, thusly on-theme.
Okay, now counters!
Unto the intrinsic:
Let us protect thine commander! Selfless Spirit is out of budget yet amazing, Saffi Eriksdotter is of a similar role, and Dauntless Bodyguard, along withal Selfless Savior, are budget options for choice.
There are two routes in commander decks (when playing fairly); a low-curve with a foison of card draw or a higher curve with less card draw. Low-curve = more card draw. I'd add Painful Truths, Sign in Blood, Funeral Rites, Ransack the Lab
I am biased, but I put Once Upon a Time in literally all of my green decks. 'Tis most lovely each time I cast the gest.
And therefrom is the finis of my comment. Fare thee well and may fortune betide!

Woah Woah Woah Woah. Complete basics for your lands? I guarantee you, if you use some of the following lands instead, you will win SOOOO much more. Try some of the following:
- Blooming Marsh
- Verdant Catacombs
- Nurturing Peatland
- Overgrown Tomb
- Temple of Epiphany
- Woodland Cemetery
- Llanowar Wastes
- Twilight Mire
- (If this is within budget) Bayou
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Reflecting Pool
- Prismatic Vista
- Exotic Orchard
- Fabled Passage
- Ancient Tomb
- Gemstone Mine
- Command Tower
- Strip Mine
- Forbidden Orchard
- Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
I know they can cost a lot, but I promise you that by including them all your mana based problems will slowly fade away, and you will win A LOT more. Guaranteed. If you found this helpful be sure to check out and give me feedback on some of my decks, like Double Trouble EDH, I would deeply appreciate it. (Don't forget to upvote them if you like them

AscendedLandfalls, thanks for the comment and suggestion. I haven't thought about running Dryad of the Ilysian Grove because outside of color-fixing and a psuedo Wayward Swordtooth effect for it doesn't offer the deck much. Worse yet, it's a very unsafe form of color-fixing as it is on a creature body that can easily be removed by a whole host of different targeted and non-targeted spells. I'll argue that it suffers from something similar to the "glass cannon" trope where it's super strong in some aspects - but super vulnerable at the same time.
Rampant Growth is good ramp in a certain context. I don't run that many basic land cards in this deck (only 3) so it's not really worthwhile to include. Farseek is probably more worthwhile as it can find typed lands, but paying for a tapped land doesn't seem as appealing as a mana rock for the same cost. You say Skyshroud Claim is not efficient? For I can tutor for two lands that come into play untapped and can fetch any forest typed land. That means I can fix my manabase by fetching any two of the following - Tropical Island, Bayou, or Savannah (or their shockland equivalent). If you think this spell is not efficient, then please tell me what i'm missing because I think it's nothing short of amazing for a multi-color deck.

Kaioken88 If you want to add in more competitive cards Here is a list: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Yosei, the Morning Star, Acidic Slime, Liliana of the Veil, Reveillark, Survival of the Fittest, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Grave Titan, Tooth and Nail, Savannah, Scrubland, and Bayou. But in all honesty, its how you play the deck and if you want to combo off or not that will determine if you are competitive or not
