Boneyard Scourge has a triggered ability that puts it on the battlefield, that's not casting a spell.

Casting a spell means moving it to the stack, paying the casting cost in the process. Casting spells typically happens from your hand, but there's cards that allow you to cast spells from elsewhere. Cards with Flashback like Angelfire Ignition allow you to cast the spell again from graveyard for an alternative cost. Rivaz of the Claw allows you to do that with any dragon spell, but only once per turn. Spells with Cascade (Bloodbraid Elf ) allow you to cast a spell from exile from the top of your library for free. What these cards all have in common, is their reminder text (italic, in brackets) literally mentions "You may cast". If it says "Return to battlefield" or "Put onto the battlefield" then it's an ability or an effect from another source, but you didn't cast the creature.

Casting Reanimate on a dragon in your graveyard is not casting the dragon. Ebondeath, Dracolich can be cast from your graveyard whenever any other creature died this turn. If you do that with Rivaz in play, thàt one will get exiled if it would die again.

Hope that helps '^^

Oh, and sorry to double post, but Elenda, the Dusk Rose has been doing great for me because she pairs really well with indestructible. If your opponents can't remove her, she will get gigantic. Or Ebondeath, Dracolich who is just impossible to get rid of, and becomes an awesome blocker with indestructible and vigilance.

And what do you think about recursion that can be played from the yard like Sevinne's Reclamation or Dread Return?

Just a couple ideas : ) Deck looks awesome!

My inclination is to split between kobolds and dragons. So some cards that care about kobolds (Kobold Drill Sergeant, Kobold Overlord, Kobold Taskmaster), and some that care about dragons.

Ebondeath, Dracolich is probably decently good in that style of deck. If they kill him just sacrifice the kobold you got from killing him to recast him, getting another kobold.

The dragons with devour could also be interesting: Predator Dragon, Preyseizer Dragon, and Voracious Dragon

Hey, well done so far upgrading the precon, nice Phyrexian Altar.

Some cards from the precon to consider adding:

Talisman of Dominance ETB untapped to make either color. Another mana rock upgrade is Dimir Signet replacing Charcoal Diamond. Dreadhorde Invasion is a repeatable source of Zombie and Eternal Skylord is a much worse Hordewing Skaab. Curse of the Restless Dead is a more reliable repeatable source of Zombies than Undead Alchemist.

Pact of the Serpent is powerful tribal card for Zombies. Battle at the Bridge needs lots more artifacts to be playable. Zombie Apocalypse is powerful tribal card for Zombies especially when your Commander sacs Zombies to draw. Patriarch's Bidding is another mass reanimation tribal Zombie card. Dread Summons needs a ton of mana paid into it to be decent since you have no control over milling your own or opponent creatures.

Gisa and Geralf can be repeatable cast of Zombies from your graveyard which can do more than Ebondeath, Dracolich. Feed the Swarm is helpful to have enchantment removal in Dimir. Liliana, Death's Majesty can be repeatable Zombies and her other abilities are good too. She does more than Liliana's Mastery, but honestly you don't need either one of these cards since there's better five drops here or could add.

The more basic Islands you can replace with Dimir dual lands the better the manabase will be because black mana is much important than blue. Lots of basic Islands makes it more difficult to cast heavy black spells. Tainted Isle and Choked Estuary are playable lands in the precon that care about Swamps and you have a lot of Swamps.

Good luck with your deck.

What do you think of Ebondeath, Dracolich in here? It can be cast from your graveyard at any time after a creature dies, either from a blitz effect or something else, and it can be cast as either a long-term creature or as a blitzer itself, thanks to Henzie's ability.

Entering tapped is a little bit of a downside, but flash and blitz can help mitigate that.

Two cards that could work well in the existing shell could be:

  • Champion of the Perished. You have a few ways already to keep putting Zombies into play - this card helps you profit from that by becoming a big chonky attaker.

  • Skaab Ruinator could be strong here, though you'd need to add blue to the deck, and likely also play Stitcher's Supplier to ensure your grave had enough creatures - but a 3cmc 5/6 flyer that can keep coming back is a threat not a lot of decks can cope with.

Other than that, more interaction is always good (Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy, Fatal Push). As far as the cards I think are the "weak spots" to consider removing, it'd be the Planeswalkers and Amulet of Vigor, followed by Ebondeath, Dracolich.

It also feels a bit to me like your namesake card, Eldritch Evolution, doesn't actually do a lot for you here. Specifically, that card normally shines in combo decks, but less so for grindy brews like this. It feels like Collected Company would serve you better justice in assembling the go-wide zombie-hoard. (Keep in mind though, that Collected Company requires you run at least 28ish creatures to see reliable profits)
