For a first EDH deck this looks pretty good! Had all sorts of advice to give but found most of my ideas were already in this list! Nice job!
A few things I did see:
IMO you are a bit heavy on the land with your mana curve how it is. 38 lands plus 8 rocks is a lot and you will end up drawing dead cards later on. While these can be pitched to Chainer, if your commander isnt out it wont feel great. My suggestion would be to cut a few lands, maybe 4, and add in some additional draw spells such as:
In terms of removal, Bedevil would be a solid addition.
Finally a fun card to reanimate creatures could be Hell's Caretaker .
As for cards I would remove:
- Meteor Golem is pricey for what it does. While it can be recurred you do have to pay for it each time.
Thats it! Everything else looks awesome so I would have a tough time cutting things for my suggestions. lol
Hope this helps and love the deck! Best of luck!

+ 2 combo peaces, but its sorcery speed so would require 8 mana to go off. this would be good for turn 8 were im at now. but in not sure if it would help me get to turn 6.

smack80 Thank you!
First off, you're absolutely right about The Circle of Loyalty . I keep trying to convince myself that it is worth having in there. So that's one cut to fit in something you're suggesting.
As for getting Haakon into the yard, between the discard support, self mill, and Buried Alive and Entomb , I rarely have trouble getting him there. However, I didn't know Call the Bloodline existed, and will definitely find one to put in here. So there's my swap - Call in, Circle out.
As for the rest of your suggestions, the biggest problem is figuring out what to cut. There's definitely some lackluster Knights on the list, but they all share one important quality: low CMC. My biggest problem is mana curve. If I don't get a good mix from the beginning, it turns into a midrange deck without an adequate amount of disruption. In other words, not so good. As a result, it would seem like a no-brainer to replace Embereth Shieldbreaker with Mirror Entity , for example, but that one more mana in the cost might exasperate the problem. As it already is, pretty much all of the Knights that make the deck sing are 3 CMC. I have found that I rely heavily on the little guys in the early game, and don't really want to lose them.
Likewise, I don't know how to fit the tribal spells in here. I've been trying to figure that out for a long time, and can't decide which category to choose from to make room for them. There's a pretty solid balance of:
And the little space left over after all of that is taken up by a handful of ramp, and a little bit of artifact recursion. So what do I cut?

The effects of Orcus seems like they could be powerful with Zombies, but 3 equip cost is high. It's worth playtesting for sure, but not sure if you should cut another card for another artifact that's not a sac outlet...
Honestly, I don't think you need Orcus since you have other more mana efficient ways to give all Zombies deathtouch and other ways that are easier to make lots of 2/2 Zombie tokens. Being a three drop gives Orcus less impact the turn you play it because there's plays to make already for three mana that are similar to Orcus. Death Baron is a Zombie play for deathtouch while also making Varina 5/5. A nonZombie play is Buried Alive to get Wonder for true evasion.

Just a quick update:
Dropped Winding Canyons for Demonic Tutor because it didn’t do a whole lot while i combo off. Too many non-creature components to the combos. We’ll stick to emergence zone if we need to try to win on the stack. Been meaning to add demonic tutor anyways, just hadn’t bought one.
Also dropped Buried Alive for Living Death as i really don’t focus that much on reanimation, aside from recurring important pieces mid combo. It felt dead most games. Living death can take a combo turn and completely supercharge it, often time outright winning the game. Can also be fun to draw and discard my entire deck via Skirge Familiar and then slam living death down to wreck a game.

why: I like the love curve, regardless of returning three spells im gonna play with it in place of deathcloud I feel its more on curve and less win more
why: strictly better also good synergy with Living Death

Hello again killer_eye!
Good question! At worst, you can think of Buried Alive as a card that fuels Hogaak's delve by at least 4 cards. At best, you have some sort of Recursion in your hand, so Buried ends up tutoring your combo piece , or card draw .

Maybe Culling the Weak can be your replacement for Burnt Offering.
I like Bolas's Citadel because it combos with Sensei's Divining Top or Necropotence to win. A lot of people run Aetherflux with that combo but I cut Aetherflux and I have never not wok with just the Citadel and Top or Necropotence.
Razaketh, the Foul-Blooded is a card I haven't yet added but intend to.
