They are considerations of course. However a lot of them require me to build too linear like with adding Epicure of Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire. They’re absolutely great cards and if I wasn’t trying to be more adaptive in my deck building style and wanted to fine point the lifegain/loss strategy I’d absolutely add them. Same goes for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic lovely card but I don’t want to focus exclusively on lifegain/loss strategy. I know most people say to focus exclusively on a specific strategy but that’s just not my play style anymore. I like versatility and surprise! Haha

Lich's Mastery and Drogskol Reaver are great cards and easy wins. But I just don’t like playing like that with my friends so I stay away from those sort of things. I have added Peer into the Abyss and Necrologia as quick wins but more fair in my opinion.

Bone Miser and Psychosis Crawler are in my consideration pile in my deck box actually haha so you’re right on the money there! I’m also considering Shabraz, the Skyshark  Flip. I think I may be adding Sakashima the Impostor to my ninja deck now that you mention it.

Shadow of the Grave is a lovely card. I just always cut it at the final round of cuts for some reason. It’s in my maybe pile in my deck box though for sure. I still have to play test and work out the kinks of gameplay. So it may still make the cut in the end.

Bag of Holding would be lovely if it weren’t so easily destroyed. It’s also counterintuitive to the reanimator subtheme I have going in the deck.

Thank you so much for all your suggestions! It definitely reinforced some of my considerations :)

I forget about Necrologia all the time. Very underrated card.

Necrologia is a fun card for life gain decks, it allows you to dig deep for a combo piece or key removal if needed. Best paired with recursion since it draws at your endstep, otherwise Thought Vessel or Library of Leng can mitigate the downside of discarding to 7.

Five boardwipes seems a bit much but I guess it is meta specific so whatever fits your meta is best at the end of the day. Crippling Fear is solid, won't kill big threats but shuts down a lot of tokens or can potentially save you from a Pathbreaker Ibex swing out.

Whip of Erebos for extra life gain and it's activated ability helps quite a bit when you least expect it to.

Hey! Love to see a fellow Toshi player's list. I have a list up on this site but it's severely outdated, so I'll just give you my top recommendations. I have been playing Toshi for a while and know of a few power cards that may be of interest:

Withering Boon is a great gotcha, they never expect it.

Sudden Spoiling is another great piece of disruption that also helps kill hexproof things.

Crypt Ghast is insane. Not only does it double your mana, you can also extort all the spells you're casting.

Depending on your meta, Imp's Mischief can put in a lot of work.

And for more 'fun' cards:

Necrologia is a big risk, but if you can resolve it the payoff is tremendous.

Thrilling Encore is great even at 5 mana. Stealing a whole board of creatures is a lot of fun.

griffstick that might be true, but with Olivia, Crimson Bride as your commander, Necropotence will still not fit well into your plan. Peer into the Abyss or Necrologia are probably better versions of the same effect for that deck.

Scarab God is tough to build competitively especially if you're on a budget, and the good zombies are not very cheap anymore. It looks like you have a lot cards from Amonket and Hour of Devastation. I really love those sets personally but most of the zombies in them are pretty lackluster in commander. I would cut a whole lot of these guys especially 4+ CMC zombies.

I recommend adding a lot more card draw, mana ramp, and single target removal. 10-12 draw spells, 10-12 ramp spells, and 5-10 removal spells are recommended for most EDH decks. The best draw, ramp, and removal spells are not really budget friendly anymore since pretty much everyone is playing them. But, there a few sleepers out there that, in my opinion, are really powerful budget cards.

Card draw spells:
Necrologia is like a budget Ad Nauseam but you can only play it at your end step.
Read the Bones is a classic that let's you dig into your library.
Stinging Study gets you 5 cards in this deck.
Underworld Connections is like a budget Phyrexian Arena, and it can draw you an extra card each turn.
Village Rites gets you 2 cards for 1 mana and it's a 1 time use sacrifice outlet.

For mana ramp generally you want to go with 1 or 2 CMC mana rocks that enter untapped if you aren't playing green: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Dimir Signet, Mind Stone, Liquimetal Torque, Thought Vessel, Prismatic Lens, and maybe an Ornithopter of Paradise, it's a decent mana dork. Add Talisman of Dominance if you want to pay $7 for one.

Outside of those I like Power Tap. Target The Scarab God and get 5 colorless mana. Power Tap is a sleeper budget card IMO. Don't cut Dark Ritual or Bontu's Monument.

For Single Target Removal you want to stick to 2-3 CMC instant speed removal spells that can target as many different types of permanents as possible. A few cards I like are: Feed the Swarm
Power Word Kill
Heartless Act
Go for the Throat
Personally, I really like Imprisoned in the Moon and Oubliette. They decomission your opponent's Commander. And both cards ate cheap since they were recently reprinted.

Also Counterspell cards can be very powerful.

A few inexpensive bombs you can add:
Gray Merchant of Asphodel is amazing.
Army of the Damned is an absolute beast in this deck. Both of those cards can you win you the game.

There are a lot more really great cards out there you can add, but I just wanted to list a few to get you started.
