Tormod, the Desecrator's ability simply states "whenever one or more cards leave your graveyard create a 2/2 black zombie token. I've been trying to work out wether escape would trigger twice or once for Tormod's ability:
For example, if I wanted to cast Phoenix of Ash, I don't know wether the cards you must exile count as leaving the same time as the phoenix, or if it would trigger the ability seperately as it is a different action that happens the same time you cast it?
If that makes sense. Either way. What happens. I've checked the gatherer, it has no rules for tormod and I can't find anything about escape and triggers like this anywhere else.

I recently pulled 3 copies of Klothys, God of Destiny and have no clue what would be a good deck to slot her into.
Currently, I have a private, work-in-progress deck that contains cards that work either with or inside graveyards, such as Scavenging Ooze , Phoenix of Ash, and cards that mill like The Binding of the Titans and would like to build something that works with mine and my opponent's graveyards.
I want this deck to be Standard format and on a decently high budget, somewhere between $100 - $200.

so, I'm not the biggest fan of standard but ill try and help. You may want to put this under the "needs help" tab to get input from other players. Cards I'd consider would be Heartless Act, Extinction Event, Shredded Sails, Shatterskull Smashing Flip, Spikefield Hazard Flip, Bloodchief's Thirst, Phoenix of Ash and Feed the Swarm

Was hoping for Trap cards to return. Ended up disappointed.
As someone who plays only Alesha in EDH I was disappointed to see yet another new Fleshbag Marauder creature with power 3. There’s now 5 creatures with this effect, all of which with 3 or 4 power which feels like I’m getting dunked on at this point. Skyclave Apparition at least makes up for it and Soul Shatter is cool too.
As a Modern burn player Wayward Guide-Beast is unplayable. Maybe if they gave it +1 power instead of Trample I would have to reconsider as it’s drawback is too severe despite trying to be a throwback to Goblin Guide.
Party mechanic is kind of cool. White was clerics, Blue was wizards, Black was rogues, and Red was Warriors. Why they didn’t make Green be Archers is very disappointing to me though.
I guess it in all was alright.

The All-Stars have to be Anax, Hardened in the Forge because he's a brute and he populates the board with attackers after board wipes or epic combats. Equipping Embercleave on him will often end the game.

I think a life-oriented phoenix is the best option, Garza's Assassin is the most similar, but I think red can flavorfully spend life like that, also if a Phoenix costs life to come back, I think it makes sense that it has other life-related abilities:
Creature - Phoenix
, Pay half your life, rounded up: Return Bloodflame Phoenix from your graveyard to the battlefield. Activate this ability only during your upkeep.
I'd like to see another Phoenix, but neither a phoenix lord or a repeated method of return.

I know it might be a stretch of the mana, but Phoenix of Ash might be a solid addition.
