- Alora, Merry Thief all the reasons specified above
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury was a for-fun place filler, now have more dedicated cards to put in.
- Plaguecrafter have asymmetric board wipes, this guy making me sacrifice was too far
- Hooded Blightfang commander no longer hands out deathtouch like candy so less synergistic.

Scorpions, I'm in.
Anything that gives mass trample and +P/+T is always good. Add a pile of deathtouchers, and someone is gonna break in half.

KingKilvas all great suggestions, I probably wont consider Vraska, Scheming Gorgon as Keisen cant ping players and Im not really a huge fan of alternate win cons. Hooded Blightfang unfortunately doesn't do as much as expected. Goblin Sharpshooter is fantastic, but I'm just not willing to buy one, absolutely run the card if you are willing or have it already. Same thing for Quietus Spike and Vault of the Archangel. I originally had Call of the Death-Dweller in but I don't want to rely on Keisen being in the graveyard because if it gets countered that's a huge letdown. Reaper's Talisman should actually be in here, I originally didn't have it in because I didn't realize Keisen had vigilance. I appreciate the recommendations.

Looks like a fun deck! Have you considered Vraska, Scheming Gorgon as an alternate wincon? Hooded Blightfang, Blood Cultist, Goblin Sharpshooter, Call of the Death-Dweller, Viridian Longbow, Quietus Spike, Reaper's Talisman, and Vault of the Archangel all also fit your theme pretty well. Hope this helps!

Hi 0riginal thank you for the suggestion! This is a great card for the deck. I want to find a way to put one copy in. I would like to find a way to put a copy of Hooded Blightfang and Fynn, the Fangbearer in the deck too. Fun cards!

I'd start by identifying what you want the main goal of your deck to be. I see two main ideas here that could be built around.
The first is dealing unblocked damage by disincentivizing blocks with deathtouch. Darkblade Agent , Eternal of Harsh Truths , Graveblade Marauder , and maybe Blightsteel Colossus (with enough reanimation) fit this archetype. Because of the two "blade" cards, there is some overlap with the second archetype which I'll cover next (and if you keep them, cards like Notion Rain , Mission Briefing , Thought Erasure , and Discovery / Dispersal are likely to get more mileage than Divination or Secrets of the Golden City ), but there may be even better ways to profit from unblocked creatures. Curiosity enchantments like Curious Obsession , Sixth Sense , and Keen Sense are frequent accompaniments to the Invisible Stalker s and other bogles of the world, and Bident of Thassa is a strong option for those going wide. I like Quietus Spike as a sort of midway point between Basilisk Collar and Master of Cruelties in decks like these too. Other beaters to get in with could be Tomebound Lich , Oona's Blackguard , Dimir Cutpurse , Looter il-Kor , Shadowmage Infiltrator , Surrakar Spellblade , Wharf Infiltrator , or Virtus the Veiled if he's legal in whatever format this is for. More generic deathtouch synergy could include Hooded Blightfang , Viridian Longbow , Thornbite Staff , Psionic Gift enchantments, and any source of first strike. Finally, I like Cipher as a way to gain advantage from repeated attacks, so maybe a Hidden Strings or Paranoid Delusions could come in handy.
The second main idea is to stack the graveyard(s) with as many creatures as possible to extract value from Undergrowth and similar mechanics. Avatar of Woe , Lotleth Giant , Trepanation Blade , Teferi's Tutelage , and some of your Disentomb effects fit here. Major threats in these kinds of decks include Wight of Precinct Six , Jace's Phantasm , Consuming Aberration , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker , Fleet Swallower , Nemesis of Reason , Bonehoard , Mortivore , and Nighthowler . If you want to focus on your own graveyard, green is a great color to dip into as I alluded to earlier. Ghoultree , Boneyard Wurm , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Splinterfright , Nyx Weaver , Nemesis of Mortals , Spider Spawning , and Kessig Cagebreakers are just some of the tools you get access to. Golgari is also the king of Undergrowth, so Hatchery Spider , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Molderhulk , Rhizome Lurcher / Undergrowth Scavenger , Kraul Harpooner , and Necrotic Wound are on the table. If milling your opponents is more your thing, some staples to consider are Thought Scour , Sphinx's Tutelage , Drown in the Loch , Traumatize , Fraying Sanity , and the crab duo. Jace's Erasure , Psychic Corrosion , and the Tutelage pair benefit the most from other draw synergy, and Visions of Beyond is an obvious inclusion if that's the route you take. Either way, I'd cut down to only the most efficient of your reanimate to hand cards and the like since you don't want to be stuck with a fist full of them and no creatures in the graveyard to target. Speaking of cuts, for maximum power, it's usually correct to play as close to the 60 card minimum as possible. Picking a single strategy to hone in on should make it easier to whittle down to the most important 60 in the deck.
If you have questions, let me know. Good luck with your build!

SaintFinni, this list has been working very well, I did go 3-0 at the first Kaldheim-legal standard tourney and took no game losses.
Hooded Blightfang is decent, but yes QBeast would be better overall as it is much more impactful for just 1 more mana. And I strictly play paper magic, I just don't really care for Arena, not nearly as much fun lol.
Doing that with Eidolon and the aura's will increase the removal package substantially but you will be watering down the core of the deck. Treacherous Blessing made huge impacts for me during the tourney and its just a single card on curve for a typical play-out of this deck, which makes it one of (if not the most) efficient ways to fill our hand back up in BG.

Weird_Frisbee Makes total sense trying to keep the mana curve as low and even as possible! I’ve been using/tinkering with a deck list after trying to make this one. I don’t quite have all the cards and/or quantity you’ve listed, but I’ll try to make a post of the one I built using your deck as the base. How’s it been working out for you?
Oh, should probably mention I’ve been having to do test any and all deck ideas on Arena for now.
