Entreat the Dead Discussion

Rock Hydra would be fun in this deck. Rhythm of the Wild might be good in this deck as well. Vastwood Hydra may also be a good addition to this deck. Wildest Dreams is good recursion. Entreat the Dead and Living Death may also help. Explosive Vegetation , Kodama's Reach , Farseek , Peregrination and Untamed Wilds are also good ramp spells.
I hope this helps!

I’d suggest using a Reliquary Tower and not Spellbook , which will also free up a card spot. Entreat the Dead is a decent graveyard-to-battlefield resurrection, and with the lifegain theme in your deck you could probably make use of Bolas's Citadel or the new Ajani, Ajani, Strength of the Pride .
Since you have a lot of black devotion on permanents, Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a pretty good card.
Crypt Ghast is a black mana doubler with Extort.
Maybe you’ve already considered these, but hopefully the suggestions will help

Agreed. After my Animar, Soul of Elements deck fell apart, I wanted to make a counters deck with less bells and whistles. I always find EDH disheartening when the best versions have been calculated and there’s no room to refine. Skullbriar needed a massive facelift imo.
Collector Ouphe definitely warrants his spot. I’ll keep my Sol Ring just cuz. But I might switch the other out for one that can be sac’d in response to him being played(so it doesn’t become useless). Since creatures are much more the focus here, especially with Green Sun's Zenith , I might stick with mana dorks. Crypt Ghast is weird. I feel like I never have enough swamps for him to be effective at 4cmc.
Bow of Nylea : deathtouch wrecks with your setup. With trample it’s stellar, but I’m still torn. A single counter a turn for 2 is garbage, 2 damage is meh, lifegain is a no, I can return and play cards from my grave. But just sitting there it’s not terrible. It’ll probably go out at a later date.

Yo Ruggs, here are a suggested cards to remove from you deck open up space.
Graveyard Fetching/Recursion - Competes for cards slots that support the tribal control theme. Besides Craterhoof Behemoth , I dont see any creature worth two cards for throwing it into your graveyard and then recurring it onto the battlefield. Animate Dead is good because you can target you opponent's graveyards - perfect for your discard theme.
- Buried Alive -> Vanquisher's Banner
- Entomb -> Herald's Horn
- Unearth -> Kindred Summons
- Entreat the Dead -> Rise of the Dark Realms Use elf ramp bring all those discarded creatures back into play under your control.
Other swap options include:
- Deathreap Ritual -> Skullclamp . The ritual conditionally yields one draw/end step. It's not bad, but the clamp will can explosively refill your hand for with more discard shenanigans
- Nature's Claim - > Beast Within . More flexibility on target selection.
- Deathsprout -> Silence the Believers , Vraska's Contempt , or Toxic Deluge . Your deck is missing alternative removal tricks, which I think is important. Indestructible is pretty common.
Thats what I got for now.

Nice, sounds good!
Well I’d say that Opt doesn’t really do much for you since you already have so many cards that have “each player discard x and draw x” so you’re moving through your deck. So I’d replace that with Entreat the Dead .

My immediate thought with utilizing the Bros efficiently was to emphasize artifact creatures (ex. Goblin Replica ) and enchantment creatures (ex. Courser of Kruphix ) so you could always have options on what to sacrifice to answer a problem. You have the creature portion covered completely but I honestly cannot see you wanting to sacrifice any of your enchantments without also hurting yourself.
Most options to make expendable enchantment tokens are not great, like Pharika, God of Affliction , but some like Renowned Weaver could be viable because, again, it gives you options on what you want to sacrifice.
Bros' cost is also kind of expensive so ways to reduce it or generate more mana (you are in ) will allow multiple activations if need be. Heartstone and Thran Turbine come to mind to reduce their cost and Burnished Hart , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Solemn Simulacrum , Skittering Surveyor and Pilgrim's Eye are great early game to fix your mana while late-game you can sacrifice them to either ability.
You mentioned reanimation in the description so some more options are Animate Dead , Dance of the Dead , Phyrexian Delver , Oath of Ghouls , Palace Siege , Entreat the Dead , Feldon of the Third Path , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist .
I would also consider other sacrifice options so in case you do not need to activate Bros you can still generate value via sacrificing your tokens or creatures. Altar's Reap and Costly Plunder for card advantage, Sidisi, Undead Vizier to tutor, Priest of Forgotten Gods for multi-value, etc.
You have the protective-footwear covered but I would consider adding Spider Umbra and Kaya's Ghostform so you can protect or sacrifice them if need be. Other personal favorites of mine are Undying Evil and Supernatural Stamina .
Looks nefariously "fun!"
