When Sepulchral Primordial enters the battlefield, for each opponent, you may put up to one target creature card from that player's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control.

I like the lifegain/lifedrain aspects of this deck. But I think you are missing an important extort card in Crypt Ghast
Mass removal and reanimation seems like a good sub theme, but where are your big heavy hitters to reanimate? Sepulchral Primordial seems like an auto include in this style of deck. Due to your creatures being more value engines than big hitters Single Combat might not be the wrath you want.

I might have a spare Sepulchral Primordial. May be good with the discarding shenanigans?

Maybe it was in an archived comment, but what are your thoughts on Sepulchral Primordial? I have a couple copies, and have considered it for my own list. Encoring it seems nuts, and stealing potentially 3 creatures on hard cast or reanimation seems decent, but too dependent on opponents having stuff there to begin with.

SMELY_ZAJKO Great questions, and I'm stoked you want to this as your first EDH deck!
From my experience playtesting this with others, this deck is great at lying low for the majority of the game until you are ready swoop in, swing hard, and win the game. Since we are using some cards with "lose the game" effects, you need to be really careful and be smart with Obeka, Brute Chronologist; attacking with her or activating her ability at the wrong time can easily lose you the game.
If you want to go with more of a reanimator/big monsters, Obeka becomes less of a danger to yourself and more of a political tool when the combo pieces are removed; her role in the deck transitions to being primarily as a value engine and political piece. Never underestimate her political power through offering an opponent protection from removal, a board wipe, etc. Also, Araumi of the Dead Tide will then become an absolute all star in this deck!
You thankfully don't need to completely reconstruct this deck to have it focus on reanimator. I would remove all the cards listed under the Combo header except for Sneak Attack, Windfall, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Cabal Coffers. This would remove seven cards from the deck, so we have seven slots to fill in with reanimator cards. I would suggest adding Stitcher's Supplier and Corpse Connoisseur to help get cards into your graveyard. Glen Elendra Archmage for more protection. Then finally, Sepulchral Primordial, Torrential Gearhulk, Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Diluvian Primordial for big splashy creatures to reanimate.
If you have a larger budget, you can upgrade your big creatures to Wurmcoil Engine, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, It That Betrays, or creatures of the like. Honestly, I would just choose your favorite big creatures and jam those. I hope this helps!

No Sepulchral Primordial? I feel like he would be right at home with this deck.

Sepulchral Primordial is the better comparison with the Debaser's encore but w/e

I can't believe no one has mentioned Aid from the Cowl! Even a card like Sepulchral Primordial would be great since you are forcing people to have stuff in their graveyard. And another Jund commander that I love would also work well here is Kresh the Bloodbraided.

When it comes to reanimation targets, you want creatures that function identically to spells. Removal spells, draw spells, etc. That way you can go all-in on the reanimation strategy while also pulling off interaction at the same time. With that in mind...
Solemn Simulacrum for ramp and draw
Etali, Primal Storm because he's just straight value
Flayer of the Hatebound can deal lots of damage in a reanimator style deck
Worldgorger Dragon goes infinite with Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and Necromancy very easily. Then you have infinite mana to do stuff with. It's worth the price tag and is a wincon in reanimator cEDH decks.
Phylath, World Sculptor can make tons of tokens and is more budget friendly
Vilis, Broker of Blood is surprisingly budget, and takes over any game
Gray Merchant of Asphodel is designed to be reanimated as many times as possible
Any of the eldrazi that shadow63 mentioned
I'm mostly familiar with mono-red reanimator because of my commander Feldon of the Third Path. He would work great in a reanimator deck, too. Especially one with lots of creature-based shenanigans. Also, Chainer, Nightmare Adept is great at reanimating. He also gives Korvold haste and any creature you have in hand (provided you discard it and cast it from the yard).
