Whenever a creature you control is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, you gain 1 life and draw a card.
Moldervine Reclamation Discussion

Good idea, but needs refinement. Tempting Witch and Giant's Skewer work well enough together, but it's not really what you need here and it's unreliable and mana-heavy. I'd recommend cutting them along with Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Vantress Gargoyle , who are both underpowered. Negate doesn't fit with your theme. Patient Rebuilding is no longer standard-legal. Witch's Cottage will just be a tapped swamp most of the time. Replace Evolving Wilds with Fabled Passage .
Now, with all these cuts we need some cards to add. Put in some more Revenge of Ravens to discourage attacking and get you more lifegain and time to drain, Cauldron Familiar fits into this deck well, Murderous Rider gives you a better kill spell than Murder (which means you might take that out too) as well as some lifegain. Consider Clackbridge Troll , who I think is massively underused in this format, and gives you some cards and life at the least.
Right now I think this format is harsh on this archetype, with all the aggro and midrange around, but mess around and find some strategies that work. I'd recommend switching blue to green, since there's plenty of green cards that'll help this deck ( Moldervine Reclamation for instance) and not much blue.

Heyo! I'm building a very similar deck to yours (it used to have a lot more eldrazi than it currently does, but there are still a few.) Carrion Court Just wanted to let you know that Ayara, First of Locthwain can only trigger on the ETBs of/sacrifice black creatures. She does not interact with your eldrazi scions/spawn/green eldrazi at all. You may know that, but without that interaction she seems underwhelming here. My list has a few options you might want to consider instead (some not exactly budget), but I don't think I know of any cards that perform her precise role well.
I'm not going to make any of those "official" suggestions as I don't know what your means are for acquiring cards.
Oathbreaker absolutely is a good kind of format for this deck! It's robust to a bunch of different enemy strategies and can adapt to situations. I love it!
I have yet to ever win meaningfully with Vraska's emblem. I've gotten it, but my opponents have already been already dead on board whenever I have. Good luck!

Hey oc616, Sorry I missed your comments earlier!
Moldervine Reclamation is a fine include for a fair Mazirek deck. I'm a big proponent of having at least a handful of effects that trigger card draw when a creature dies. That being said this isn't necessarily the most efficient one to cast (which is why its not in my list) but it is cheap to purchase which is great. If you are doing an infinite combo Loop then it can cause an issue with you milling out, but if you're just playing a fair game the fact that it doesn't say may on it doesn't matter.
Lazotep Reaver is a fine piece of fodder. If you look at the ones that I'm using in my list, it's just a tiny bit less useful/efficient than similar ones I'm using for various reasons. But I would not fault you for including it if that's what you've got. You need to have a decent amount of fodder for the deck have the fuel it needs.
Thanks for the ideas everyone! It's been such a fun deck for me to play and I'm glad other people are working on it and playing it too!!

i personally like Moldervine Reclamation over Fecundity . Smothering Abomination draws you as many cards as your commander and sacrifices a creature each turn. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest can mean a LOT of +1/+1 counters, especially with Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact , or Butcher of Malakir . And Attrition makes for great removal

I think the best way to go about this is to choose between tokens or reanimation. Jund has access to both so they're both good options. This will help you choose between cards like Rhythm of the Wild or Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper which only benefit from non-tokens.
Death triggers are also great, and you have access to a lot in these colors like Poison-Tip Archer , Fecundity , Moldervine Reclamation , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled , and Dictate of Erebos . The effects really add up.

Thanks for the feedback.
RNR_Gaming I agree, tbh I put it in as I was struggling of another card to fill the slot and I just thought it could come in handy sometime.
bushido_man96 all very good points, I have found this deck to be much stronger than The Scorpion God deck, mainly because hapatra creates tokens too which makes nest of scarabs not essential, and if hapatra gets removed she can just be recast so the reanimation package can definitely be cut.
I could probably half the tutors too, as I’m only needing to fetch one card, being Yawgmoth with this deck.
Thanks again, very useful comments

Sorry I didn't get back to you here right away; got way sidetracked....
In my opinion, you could probably cut most of the reanimation package. I don't think reanimator is what you're really looking to do here. You appear to be more along the lines of getting critters, killing other player's critters, and using Aristocrats to kill along the way. Running an Eternal Witness is always good value, but I think adding in the recursion package is cutting in to what you actually want to do.
I'd cut Greater Good for Moldervine Reclamation , or Fecundity (helps other players, so not as good here), or Greed . I run Greed in just about any deck running . It's never not useful. It's not Necropotence , but it's still good, and underutilized in my opinion.
You might also consider how badly you need the tutor package. If you've got a wincon that you need to be able to tutor up, then by all means run them. If it's not meant to be an overly competitive deck and you find it's really consistent in coming up with answers, that could be another section to cut. But again, this is based on how the deck wins and your meta.
Hope that helps out!
