Looks pretty good. I think you should definitely find room for Vizkopa Guildmage . You can activate her second ability multiple times (even in response to the first lifegain trigger), resulting in huge drains for every life gained during the turn!

You might like these too: Storage Matrix , Uba Mask , Angel's Trumpet , Regna, the Redeemer , Sunbond , Cradle of Vitality , Slaughter , Dingus Staff , Ethereal Absolution , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Angelic Accord , Resplendent Angel , Revival, Syphon Mind

Have you tried Ethereal Absolution ? Not sure if it is what you are looking for, but thought it might help.

Altar of Dementia to give yourself another sac outlet plus additional way to fill the yard.

Living Death as additional boardsweeper and insta zombie horde assuming the yard was getting full the way you want.

Wonder to fetch into the yard with Buried Alive = Flying Zombies! I had to add this combo to my Grimgrin deck so I didn't keep getting run over by flyers. Not sure of the jank factor on this....YMMV.

Ethereal Absolution ? Interesting anthem effect that gives you a way to get rid of creatures from other reanimator deck graveyards.

Honestly, I would take out Hushbringer . All of your creatures other than hushbringer either have an enter the battlefield trigger or death trigger, and hushbringer essentially cancels out those abilities.

You could replace that with Clackbridge Troll ? He's a win-con with some conditional card draw. And paired with Ethereal Absolution , the goats you give to your opponent will instantly die.

Also, you could probably use some card draw, maybe like Foreboding Fruit or Ayara, First of Locthwain ?

Love the deck tech and this is an archetype I have thought often of, though trying to do both artifacts and enchantments in a three-color format and not restrict your synergies can be tough. You're better off either going full enchantment or full artifact and then you'll be running a more streamlined, combotastic deck by doing so. I think you've gone heavier on the artifact side, or we'd be seeing more enchantment creatures from Theros and the Commander enchantment-creature precon and enchantment removal spells that combo with things like Blightcaster and Grim Guardian (which all combo with enchanting removal like Pacifism and Prison Realm and Dead Weight , etc.). To this artifact-heavy focus, I think Myr Retriever and Workshop Assistant are too redundant and provide only small bodies on the field when there are so many other cards that have this same effect already in the deck here ( Sharuum the Hegemon , Buried Ruin , etc.). Plus, without a sacrifice outlet, Workshop Assistant is definitely not the kind of card you want to be top-decking in situations where you've run out of steam. On the other hand, you may need more card draw rather than grave draw, since you don't self-mill, (especially if you're in a situation where Distant Melody is dead in your hand) and I think Mask of Riddles is an ideal sideboard/budget alternate for this deck. And is Ever-Watching Threshold in the pre-con? It should be. Faerie Mechanist comes to me as a distant budget option (because it only looks at the top 3 cards of your library, it's too limited to be truly useful since this deck also runs so many enchantments and creatures, but it's got tribal, flying, and it is an artifact as such is worth a mention). Finally, if you can make double-black mana work in your casting, Underworld Connections is card advantage that seems to be a staple of commander that also happens to trigger your commander. Sludge Strider can get you that life back on occasions where you have extra mana and are losing artifact creatures or sacrificing artifacts to effects (heck, even Dimir Locket and Orzhov Locket couldn't go wrong as cheap ramp that gets you card draw in the late game and triggers other effects). And take out the Winged Words from the 60-card precon, which gets you nowhere in a 100-card format, and put in at least a Terramorphic Expanse if you don't have access to better quality dual-lands. Campaign of Vengeance and Ethereal Absolution if you're really committed to going wide with your commander (I mean, with Etchings and Ethereal and your commander, you could have at least five or six 4/3 flying faeries threatening to go wider and wider). They could be protected from board wipes by an additional counterspell, like Stoic Rebuttal . I could go on and on, but definitely replace a few of the things in the precon with at least a few of these.

Tips. If you have recommendations I think I'd like something which can recover some value if all the spirits get taken out or if I'm ending up suiciding some lifelink tokens for Dawn of Hope . I basically added Impassioned Orator originally because opponents playing Ethereal Absolution was giving me head-aches and at least allowed me to throw Ministrant of Obligation onto the board for a minimum of 3x card-draw events off Dawn of Hope as they all come onto the board and immediately die while waiting for a Conclave Tribunal or something. Rising Populace is at least a cheap option, and the synergy with Teysa Karlov is nice but I'm hesitant.

Or maybe skip a Final Payment and just go for Kaya's Wrath and recover some tokens if the game gets stuck?
