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 :)

So here are some birds I found that would be fun to play:
Aven Brigadier !!!!!
Whippoorwill an exile for so little the cost
Storm Crow why isn't this here?
Spire Owl cheap, but nice
Sephara, Sky's Blade this hits the field by turn 4 for 1 white mana!
Ledger Shredder badass name and badass ability
Cartographer's Hawk a fun card that empties your deck of plains
Empyrean Eagle lord
Kangee, Sky Warden all it takes is one 1/1 bird token to scwwwaaa
Kangee, Aerie Keeper you can't run one bird and not have any feathers ay?
Shabraz, the Skyshark its a sharknado
Wingmate Roc the best wingman
High Sentinels of Arashin use your mana ramp to buff your army
Nimble Obstructionist _a tale's end _
Emeria Angel dude

Thanks for the suggestion, Reynan! Drogskol Reaver + Shabraz, the Skyshark draws the whole deck right? Since it's a mandatory effect, I'd have to run Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries to really use it though.

Very cool deck, I always thought the new Linvala could give a nice azorius deck.
Another combo you can explore, and there's a lot of tutors for it in Azorius, is Archon of Sun's Grace + Enchanted Evening and there's endless tokens ETB(entering the battlefield). Anything to sacrifice a token or some ETB trigger to mill or deal damage to opponent do the trick, cards like High Market, Pyre of Heroes, Culling Dais, Altar of the Brood.
That's it buddy, nice deck.

suarkdivad That is one direction you could go with! I wanted something beyond combat that though, something that doesn't scream "Hi, I'm the win condition!" What fun about the Smothering Tithe/Prosperity combo is that those are both unassuming cards you'd want in the deck anyway for group hugging. Like I mentioned above, cards like Nadir Kraken, Chasm Skulker or Shabraz, the Skyshark can easily make great win conditions on their own, but I personally aimed for subtlety.

Brallin, Skyshark Rider Flip will trigger 3 times, and Shabraz, the Skyshark will trigger 7 times. You'll wait until Windfall finishes resolving and put those triggers on the stack in any order, so you could do the damage before or after gaining the life, or alternate between them.

So let’s say I play the card Windfall with both Brallin, Skyshark Rider Flip and Shabraz, the Skyshark out. I end up discarding 3 and drawing 7. So would I gain 7 life and put 7 counters on shabraz, and then would brallin deal 3 damage and get 3 counters, or do they each only trigger once?
