Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon  Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!

Before the Doomed Traveler’s trigger goes on the stack, SBA’s are checked and see that Crusader of Odric has 0 toughness, so he dies. Then SBA’s are checked again and see that Ballynock Cohort now has 0 toughness and it dies as well. Then SBA’s are checked again, seeing nothing else, the game then puts the waiting trigger on the stack.

I guess I am just a little unclear on how often and with what timing some state-based actions are checked.

Let's say my opponent has a Crusader of Odric, a Ballynock Cohort, a Doomed Traveler and a couple of soldier tokens. Rightly enough, I play Infest. The question is, what's left after the dust settles?

I'm aware that:

-Crusader of Odric survives as long as at least two other creatures do.

-Ballynock Cohort will survive so long as one other creature does.

-Doomed Traveler won't survive, but will spawn a creature to replace itself upon dying.

This would all be pretty clear-cut if not for the Traveler, basically. Will the token come back in time to save the Cohort, and thus the Crusader? Or will they die from having 0 toughness before the token can save them?

Laronve great question friend! So the first thing about Rebirth is that it is not a dead card and can be used outside of combos. If you are familiar with the Razakats strategy that became famous from Shaper, you'll notice Doomed Traveler was the card of choice in the Orzovh package. After much testing, if you go full aggro, red is better than white, while white is more midrange. Even then we didn't like being on Grim Initiate either. This is where Rebirth comes in. It gives razaketh 3 tutors instead on 1; yes you can do it with only Dockside, but sometimes it pays to layer your deck out a lil bit more for the sake of redundancy.

For the Dockside Reclamation line, you make use of Children of Korlis & Entomb to keep your life at bay while netting mana. You sac the dockside to Razaketh for Korlis, Entomb or Wheel of Fortune (if an opponent has Smothering Tithe), Silence, so 14 life will be used between him and Reclamation. You Entomb for Korlis and cast it, sac it to gain back your life and repeat until you feel you have enough mana you use Searing Touch to burn the table.

All of these cards can be used in other combos as well or even as 1 time uses, which is good for any deck.

Hey, you've optimized well for your first Commander deck. Can take it even further though to reduce the avg. CMC which is high at 3.4. Get this into 2.5 or less territory.

Cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Scoured Barrens
  • Field of Souls
  • Burnished Hart
  • Ashen Rider
  • Twilight Drover
  • Open the Graves
  • Pious Evangel
  • Smothering Abomination
  • Martial Coup

Without having a way to consistently get Rider into your graveyard and more reanimation Rider is too much mana. Hart is too slow of ramp and it doesn't trigger Teysa when it sacs itself. Coup, Open, Field, Drover, Abomination and Evangel are too slow and there's better five, four, three drops here.

Good luck with your deck.
