Living Death Discussion

Since the deck isn't purely efficient/faso combo, since it has so many different needs, and since it needs to hit land drops, I still think raw card draw vs selection is the way to go. . . .

I'd actually look at Windfall as a direct swap for Wheel of Fortune , but again, that's only in my list in the first place b/c of 1. need to mull to fast mana hands that result in net negative card advantage and 2. it can play into reanimation plan.
I'm still pretty high on Greater Good , but if someone has graveyard hate/answers, it can cut off a splashy win and kneecap you pretty badly. It's not so great as a value/draw engine on its own due to the relatively high CMC and the discard 3 effect (vs a few relatively lower power main deck drag'o's). It's more a cute/splashy play/not sure I'd prioritize it unless you enjoy the card/game plan.
Speaking of which: In terms of replacements for Rishkar's Expertise , and/or in general, I'd rather look at Recurring Insight —that can be a superbomb splashy spell depending on the table. Not sure I care about Overrun-style effects at any CMC.
And I could see Living Death being a swap for Toxic Deluge , but given the tutors/recursion maybe one mass reanimation spell that's more one-sided is OK. I don't love also how Living Death resolves in re the stack (your reanimated creatures' ETBs resolve last); it can sometimes end up hosing you vs helping. Animate Dead might be a better add for added/cheap re-animation? Esp if it can fish a combo from a Scion of the Ur-Dragon dump-off?

Also I have a spare copy of Living Death and I wonder if that might be a good

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

So you start by sacrificing Xiahou Dun, The One-Eyed and six other creatures for mana to the Phyrexian Altar , cast Living Death to get them all back (with 2 mana to spare this time), and then sacrifice Xiahou to get Living Death back before sacrificing the six creatures for mana again (1 mana to spare, plus the previous total)?
Yes, that would work. You'd have to remember to start off the cycle by getting Xiahou into your graveyard in some fashion in order for Living Death to include that in the reanimation cycle.
(Also looks like Xiahou's card isn't actually in the database. Interesting.)

So I was wondering specifically on rules and a small combo. I know you have to sacrafice Xiahou Dun, The One-Eyed before attackers are declared.
What I am wondering if you could use Phyrexian Altar , 6 other creatures, Xiahou Dun, The One-Eyed and Living Death to repeatedly gain infinite mana and keep using that recursion over and over during your main phase.
I wanted to see if this would be something to combo out with torment of hailfire
