Etched Oracle Discussion

Thank you for telling me about Apostle's Blessing. I did not know about that card. I will add x 4 to sideboard for sure. What do you think about running 3 copies of Etched Oracle? I feel I need to cut it to 1 copy because this is only a two color deck and I feel it would balance the mana curve. Maybe two copies of Hardened Scales?

Depending on how easy it is to get +1/+1 counters on things, you might want to consider Etched Oracle, at worst it's a 5 mana Harmonize on a 4/4 body but if you're able to stack counters it can draw a lot of cards
Cauldron of Souls is must-have protection in any deck that runs a lot of creatures imo, and it has the possibility of putting a counter on every creature on the battlefield in response to a boardwipe.
Also, Serra's Liturgy doesn't fit with the deck's color identity. Rip.

I did some of what you suggested alphonsy.
I added Mind Unbound, Zameck Guildmage, Etched Oracle and Soul Diviner for the card draw; Faeburrow Elder for the ramp and fixing; Gilder Bairn for other pump mechanic; and Experiment Kraj as a wildcard (since he can copy what other creatures may do).
Also lowered the black permanents and upped the blue ones. So it is now mainly green, blue and black second with splashes of red and white.
This has proven to be more difficult that what I thought. I feel iffy about how it's turning out. Will continue to accept suggestions.

Druids' Repository offers a second mana source and an alternate plan- by significantly cutting land count ala charbelcher, you can run a bunch of 'search for a land' cards to make comboing very reliable, while also offering some early acceleration with Evolution Sage

Card Advantage (CA) is always key in any deck. The thing about Fecundity is that sometime's opponents can also get CA from it as well, and I prefer it to be as asymmetrical as possible. Izoni is also quite slow to be a decent CA engine. For budget purposes I would actually recommend something more akin Grim Haruspex, Phyrexian Arena, or even Mindblade Render as CA engines.
In regarding for cards like Greater Good and Disciple of Bolas, I love them. They are great in any reanimation decks. I would also recommend Corpse Augur if you have a pretty filled grave most of the time, and it doesn't even have to be yours as well since it's target player. Lifeblood Hydra is a bit risky, but since your going with a +1/+1 theme it's decent. I would not add in Etched Oracle, it may seem good but it's meh at best. Skullclamp is also a great engine with a sac outlet on the field as well as having Ravos return the creature back to your hand to reuse again.
If you have a bit higher budget I would definitely recommend in getting Sylvan Library, one of the best CA engine around. For sac outlets I would also recommend Viscera Seer as it is one of the most cost efficient one as well as a relevant ability upon sacrificing. Carrion Feeder also goes along with theme. I do recommend as I mentioned earlier Journey to Eternity Flip as for a reuseable reanimation ability as well as not being hard to trigger being a Aristocrat type deck.
A few more cards to consider would also be Drana, Liberator of Malakir, she is a hidden gem in this deck to constantly proc +1/+1 counters and she is force to be reckoned with. Bane of Progress is also a good mass board wipe against plenty of artifact or enchantment based decks. Necropolis Regent is a bit high on the curve but does a lot for making counters. Bow of Nylea can also help you make more counters or protect your graveyard from hate. Hope that answers your question and feel free to ask for any help!

I'd like to avoid useing too many instants and sorceries if I can, i'd rather use creature or enchantment cards since I can get creatures back and echantements stay. I like Lifeline, Oversold Cemetery and Debtors' Knell a lot even if it is a little on the high mana cost. Karmic Guide seems decent since I can always bring it back with Ravos when it dies.
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest was in the my first version of the deck but didn't perform very well. I think that's because I didn't have enough sac outlets, i'll put her back in again and see how it goes.
I'd like to add some card draw, a part from Fecundity and Izoni, Thousand-Eyed I don't have any. I've been thinking about adding cards like Greater Good, Lifeblood Hydra, Etched Oracle and Disciple of Bolas. What do you think about these cards?
