Looks like the Blue Tron sickos (it's me, I'm sickos) are eating good from these previews.

Cthonian Nightmare also seems like it must be busted in Modern. If we get a Priest of Gix snuck in with the old card slot or a functional equivalent a new graveyard deck should take off. Stitcher's Supplier into Nightmare seems like it should Go Off.

Also with Horizons sets adding first-printing-in-Commander cards like Kess and Laelia, it really bothers me to have new, non-Modern legal cards in the MH3 Commander decks. Or just... having the M3C decks at all.

Balaam__ Oh yes, definitely, I noticed that while testing a bit as well. Soldevi Adnate also sacs for mana and Priest of Gix gives back the mana you spend to cast him.

However I am not quite sure what to take out for more lands/mana sources. Probably needs a bit more testing.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Yup, the suicide aspect is very flavorful and what else is Premodern about than style ;)

You can also use what I mentioned alongside Ashnod's Altar and the aforementioned Decaying Soil to kill fair and square. Priest of Gix + Altar + Soil is infinite black mana and then Cabal Archon kills. However, that works without the Carnival of Souls :D

Since you're playing Chainer, him, Carnival and Cabal Archon + Priest of Gix allows you to have someone lose 2 life for 2 of yours.

     Gadianten: Ah, derp. My playgroup plays with banned cards, though I typically don't. Forgot Bargain was banned lol!

     You made a good case for Gift of Immortality - you convinced me haha! Picked one up today as well as a Priest of Gix, and have re-added Buried Alive.

     Altar of Dementia is pretty clever too, I like that. And yeah, absolutely love Yawgmoth, Thran Physician with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed! =D

     Gadianten: Thanks for the suggestions! A few of them have actually already been in and out of the deck a number of times. I was thinking recently that Buried Alive should go back in, good call!

     Hadn't considered Priest of Gix or Yawgmoth's Bargain, but I think both are probably going to make it in as well, excellent suggestions!

     Edgewalker was cut a while ago, and the deck's average CMC has dropped since then as well. I often felt the cost reduction was relatively inconsequential. Same goes for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. Good card, but I found I almost never actually activated her, and the removal portion is pretty well covered by the deck's removal package.

     Not sure about Gift of Immortality and Dance of the Dead. I often feel like I have too many slots devoted to Reanimation cards as it is. I've considered cutting Animate Dead a few times, but haven't due to it's great synergy with Hall of Heliod's Generosity - which of course both of your suggestions here would take advantage of as well. Perhaps I'll swap Victimize out for Gift of Immortality.. something to think about!

     Thanks again, really great suggestions! =D

Alright, you NEED Buried Alive as it will enable you to abuse tools you already have in the deck. Choose Yawgmoth, Thran Physician + Karmic Guide + Reveillark and [Insert Reanimate like effect] to revive Reveillark to make a Yawgmoth's Bargain that murders your opponets creatures. Draw cards until you get a winning combo while clearing the board of all creatures you dislike. It is VERY easy to draw 20 or more cards this way and if you have lifegain you can draw as many cards as you want. I cant overstate how powerful this ability is and if you have something like Zulaport Cutthroat out you pretty much win.

Some other considerations for the deck are Edgewalker for the discounts, Priest of Gix for reanimation mana abuse, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim as a sacrificial outlet of mass destruction and Heliod's Pilgrim as a useful in tribe tool box fetch creature. I think a good tool box would be Gift of Immortality and Dance of the Dead in addition to your current Animate Dead. Pretty helpful to ensure a way to revive off a Buried Alive play. Gift of Immortality is pretty funny with cards like Selfless Spirit or even Yawgmoth, Thran Physician for value.
