Perhaps Corpse Connoisseur and Gravebreaker Lamia? These could be neat too: Hell's Caretaker, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Cauldron of Souls, Requiem Angel, Nim Devourer, Black Market, Mimic Vat (this one is neat with Tormod. the vat takes the creature from grave to exile, triggering Tormod. so you could imprint every creature of yours that dies to make that many zombies)

Sire Of Insanity is insanely good, and turns being ahead on the board into wins. Also quite inexpensive to purchase. Does great work when your deck plays from the graveyard
Terastodon is a 9/9 beater that solves 3 problems immediately. Also rather inexpensive to acquire. You can even nuke 3 of your own lands to get three 3/3's and one 9/9 for 18 swinging power on the field.
Protean Hulk isn't too expensive and is a fantastic choice if you have a creature based combo already in the deck.
Sheoldred, Whispering One is expensive to buy, but an absolute powerhouse in reanimator strategies. Sticking this on turn 3 can put you super far ahead.
Avatar of Woe can be great board control when reanimated early.
Massacre Wurm is about $2 after all the reprints, and while it isn't the best reanimation target, it can certainly bring the hurt for opponents.
Ancient Stone Idol is a 12/12 Trampler, no crazy effects but a massive beater that has a die trigger.
Most demons are decent choices. I'm a big fan of how Kuro, Pitlord can instantly clear a board, but his upkeep cost is kind of gross.
As far as budget reanimation cards, I'm a huge fan of Apprentice Necromancer for reanimation targets with ETB triggers. It works extremely well with Sun Titan, which is out of Korvold colors but a gross combo to be aware of nonetheless (Sun Tit ETB returns the Necro, the attack trigger returns something else too). I also like Life / Death which has lots of potential in Korvold (make lands into creatures, then sac creatures to draw tons of cards) outside of just reanimation. Animate Dead and Dance of the Dead are both inexpensive at around $5 and $10 respectively last I checked and are worth getting, they will be staples even in 100% optimized reanimator. Whisper, Blood Liturgist has nice use when you get Korvold sac triggers, but needs cheap token or reusable bodies to use consistently and is expensive to cast at 4 CMC. Victimize is a great card, but once again requires bodies on the field. Exhume is fast to cast but you usually want to pair it with graveyard removal or time it well. Dread Return is a useful card that does well with lots of bodies and can be used twice. Doomed Necromancer is great Korvold tech but slow at 3 CMC + summoning sick, usually activating on turn 4 or later.
Buried Alive is a phenomenal card that can enable reanimator strategies, a definite must-include.
Cheap discard outlets also help move fatties from your hand to the graveyard. I can recommend Putrid Imp as the GOAT, but also Tortured Existence, Wild Mongrel, Faithless Looting, Noose Constrictor and Fauna Shaman. You can also look to some one-time spells to help you discard, I recommend Collective Brutality and Smallpox especially. Bog Witch can work wonders in slower metas, but will be a cut when your deck gets more optimized.

Ayara is one of my favourite commanders. I have a much less budget friendly build that is pretty dirty. I appreciate the version you have made but I might suggest a couple of cards that could give it a bit more punch without punching you in the wallet. Cabal Stronghold for that late game ramp. [twighlight call can straight up win the game. Pitiless Plunderer sooo much value. Whisper, Blood Liturgist or Hell's Caretaker trade tokens for token makers to make more tokens!!!

Hey jwong14 I finished the deck, I'm pretty happy with this build. I would like your thoughts on any cards I should consider for upgrading the deck. I decided Desecrated Tomb Skeletal Vampire and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed will be good upgrades down the line for token generation and undying creature buffs, but I would like to utilize Whisper, Blood Liturgist a bit more. Any advice? And thanks for all the prior input.

A trick that really helps me cut is setting up custom categories like this:
1x Pawn of Ulamog #Combo 1x Sol Ring #Ramp
Establish a base of ramp and draw and then limit cards that don't function on their own (#Combo).
Sling-Gang is definitely one of my favorites for a deck like this (keep it).
I think you're still split across extra themes (good-stuff and reanimator vs aristocrats): Torgaar is pretty narrow, so play things you can easily sacrifice for value and cut cards that don't directly feed this theme:
Conjurer's Closet... this really only works with 1/3 of your deck and putting 3 creatures into play to cast Torgaar is effectively the same thing.
Whisper, Blood Liturgist/ Demon of Dark Schemes/ Chainer, Dementia Master... these are all clunky; how are you going to put cards in graveyards that are actually worth the high cost of reanimating? These belong in a different deck or with things like Key to the City.
Nightmare Shepherd... I love this card, but it warps the deck in that it asks you to stop playing from the graveyard entirely (you could just keep drawing instead). This would definitely the direction where cards like Deathrender shine.
Krav, the Unredeemed/ God-Eternal Bontu/ Costly Plunder... I'm realizing that since Torgaar is your sac-engine, you really just want "free" draw like Midnight Reaper and Liliana, Dreadhorde General... followed by Dark Prophecy/ Erebos, Bleak-Hearted/ Harvester of Souls... and maybe Gate to the Afterlife.
Also, you're going to want Living Death.
Also, at least 36 lands. As long as you have 6+ drops, you really want 37-38.
I'm actually really liking Torgaar. He's mostly a sac-outlet in the command zone, so if you can jam a good base of creatures and keep drawing, you'll be able to find a lot of room to do what you want.
