Dread Return

Sorcery

Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Flashback—Sacrifice three creatures. (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

Fair enough. There are still ways to speed up Reanimation prior to Turn 4 though, and inexpensive ways at that. Maybe a Blood Pet into a Tortured Existence would be an engine to consider, allowing you to dump something massive in the graveyard very early on. I still advocate the value of Dark Ritual since that could conceivably get Archon of Cruelty into play Turn 3 or possibly Turn 1 if you chain rituals.

Play third Swamp ->Dark Ritual ->Blood Pet ->Sacrifice for ->Tortured Existence ->Discard Archon of Cruelty for Blood Pet ->Dread Return

Since you’re in Legacy I’d definitely run Dark Ritual to help speed up Dread Return. Also, if you’re interested, you can link cards in your deck description by enclosing them in double brackets.

The art's really nice. Where did you get it from?

On top the infinite creature combo you mentioned, if you can get your deck into your graveyard (not too hard in BGx), you can use that combo to dump every creature card in your graveyard onto the battlefield, once you get "enough" Skeleton tokens. That's the direct I would take this, as a free repeatable Dread Return. I don't think it's too powerful, especially at six mana and needing two other cards, but it is worth noting.

And to finish it off, it's a Legendary Skeleton. I like this card.

Cool deck!!!
Because you will have blood tokens and have to discard cards to draw cards, have you considered running some cards with flashback or aftermath so they are useful cards in your graveyard?
Some examples: Dread Return, Cut / Ribbons, Crawl from the Cellar, Faithless Looting, Seize the Day, Visions of Dread, Visions of Ruin, Wake to Slaughter are some options!
Anyway just some thoughts, cheers and have fun!!

So that makes four out of the ten companions banned in at least one format, and Lurrus of the Dream-Den is banned almost out of existence. Is there another mechanic that has a similar density of banned cards? Even Dredge only has one card banned anywhere (but it's lost a lot of accessory cards like Dread Return and Bridge from Below in Modern).

One drop mana dorks, most are budget, is good ramp with Nethroi because they can also be a nonHuman creature to mutate.

Avacyn's Pilgrim is a Human, but I would still play it. Mana dorks are also excellent fodder for Dread Return flashback. If you were to play these green one drop mana dorks then you would want to adjust your deck's budget manabase to make it easier to make green mana turn one. Llanowar Wastes, Exotic Orchard, Necroblossom Snarl and more basic Forests. I honestly think it's worth adjusting the manabase to play these mana dorks.

Llanowar Mentor can repeatedly create a Elf mana dork for ramp or fodder by discarding a dredge card or any other creature to help to setup Nethroi. Having other discard outlets for dredge cards is important to keep being able to dredge. Fauna Shaman is great, but can't count on always having Fauna.
