Thanks for the suggestion and +1 cyeRunner! I’ll consider Lightning Skelemental, but I think the focus should remain on burn and self life-loss to build up the Scourges and Shadows. I feel like Skelemental is better for Rakdos 8-Rack decks which focus on hand discard. I can imagine that deck running Scourges, 8-Rack, Bolts, and cards like Thoughtseize, Bitterblossom, Kolaghan's Command, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, etc.

It's clear that you want to be an aristocrat deck so I would recommend more creatures. Here are some that card that make creature tokens and are more budget friendly: Bastion of Remembrance, Abhorrent Overlord, Aphemia, the Cacophony, Dark Salvation, and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Do you own Bitterblossom? If you do, then I would consider it. Here are three non-budget cards that you might consider after playtesting: Grave Titan, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Ghoulcaller Gisa.

Unless you Armageddon and some player plays a flashy Wrath of God, I don't know how you can recover, unless you know, your opponent is at 1 life with a Bitterblossom on the field.

Also forgot to add in that The Cauldron of Eternity and Tortured Existence don't add too much to your tratedy, since it's hard to reanimate your biggest eldrazi (Mainly og Kozilek and Ulamog) since they cant technically hit the graveyard. Bitterblossom and Temple of the False God also Don't push your plan forward, and might be better served as a land I mentioned above and a Farseek. Faerie tokens provide nice sac fodder but you're already getting that from your eldrazi tokens.

Love the list. A few things to consider.

First of all you have a mill strategy, make sure you have enough graveyard hate to handle graveyard decks.

Second, the expensive card I need to mention Bitterblossom

Ok, real feedback:

Animate Dead has a low cmc, but did you consider Beacon of Unrest? It can reshuffle AND hit artifacts. Geth, Lord of the Vault is also a consideration here.

When I am turning my creatures sideways a lot I like Dolmen Gate

Since you are tribal, Cover of Darkness, Door of Destinies and Vanquisher's Banner might be nice inclusions. You a few tribal pieces, but I wonder if cost reduction is more important than other synergies.

Whirler Rogue and Sure-Footed Infiltrator seem like they might be weaker than the other rogues in this deck. They might be okay, but my feeling is they might be the rogues you cut. May I suggest: Dunerider Outlaw is a lot better than you might think. Ghostly Pilferer seems commander friendly. Also a not so budget friendly True-Name Nemesis, but money is a thing.

This deck really came well synergized out of the box.

I really don't like Whispersteel Dagger, I know it helps what Anowon is trying to do, i just wish it had ETB attach or something. The deck doesn't lean on equipment very heavily, so I might replace mine with Retreat to Hagra to try to take advantage of all the tap/fetch lands and discourage blockers with the deathtouch until end of turn (+1 counter is a welcome bonus). The mana included in this deck is pretty mediocre, so at least you'll get triggers on the duds.

Murder works, but I swapped for the new Feed the Swarm, if you can afford to pay the creature's CMC in life.

Bitterblossom is perfect for this deck, but is just too expensive for my taste. Violet Pall Could make sense for target removal, but the CMC and non-black restriction have me second guessing myself.

That's my two cents, I hope you get some good suggestions. I'm going to keep following this.

Bitterblossom is low hanging fruit

High budget and not the fastest, but would Bitterblossom work here? I suspect you'd benefit from the creatures, and if you're already running 5 Shadows, the life loss wouldn't be as problematic. Then again, I just kinda love the card, and try to sneak it into things.

Also worthy of consideration, Castle Locthwain, for some extra draw, because I feel like you can empty your hand pretty fast.
