I also forgot to add Yawgmoth, Thran Physician as a card that could work extremely well in this deck.

Party is such a neat mechanic. I feel like its so close to becoming a changeling/human tribal setup, but a lot of the key cards just don't quite mesh - the lack of synergy between Mirror Entity and archpriest, the lack of a great Shapesharer combo - its all so close to meshing.
I feel like this list is pretty close to optimal from a creatures standpoint, but the spells can likely be tweaked.
Coveted Prize's Bring to Light impression means you could have a really powerful 'search cmc4 nuke', but the low to the ground creature style means that whatever spell you're looking for has to not brick. Grabbing a Blade Historian or Yawgmoth, Thran Physician sounds great, but ideally it'd be something with a mode that helps keep the party on the battlefield the rest of the time. There are a lot of cmc4 wizards, warriors and clerics and general good stuff spells out there to try, so best of luck with the brew.

jags if youre goin the sac the creature route, definitely look into Yawgmoth, Thran Physician builds. Its one of the top decks in the meta right now, and for those that have mastered it, they love it. Ive never been a huge fan of those decks personally, but they do go off.

vishnarg there are waay more threatening 4-drops than Siege Rhino. Namely any of Felidar Guardian, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, and Shalai, Voice of Plenty can each represent immediately winning the game on entry.
I’d be pretty stoked if an opponent only used their pod to pop out rhinos… it’d mean i’m not immediately losing the game

Nice build! Impressed that you finally foun a use for a card Retribution of the Ancients! But I hve a question: have you willingly decided not to include Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, or have you just forgotten about it? Because it just seems like a perfect fit for the deck. Anyways, great list!!!

I've not seen him played but I wouldn't build him with the expectation of being able to flip him consistently. You'll need to lose exactly 27 life and have that 6 mana available before one of your opponents knocks you out of the game. 13 damage is such an easy thing to do really. Even if they don't knock you out of the game they only have to push you off 13 life before your end step. That said there are some options for you that could really make the deck tick and allow you to get to that life total quickly.
Unspeakable Symbol, Soul Channeling, Phyrexian Processor, Infernal Contract, Plague of Vermin, Toxic Deluge, Hatred, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Doom Whisperer, Wall of Blood, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Blood Celebrant, Vilis, Broker of Blood, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, and Bolas's Citadel.
Some of these will just set you to 13 life, others will get you close. Things like Hatred I really like here because that could be knocking someone out of the game. Then flipping your commander and going right into drawing a bunch of cards. You'd need 11 mana to do that in 1 turn though so I'd also include black's big mana cards like Nirkana Revenant and Crypt Ghast. A number of these things are mana hungry to do in one turn. All in all I wouldn't say this is looking half bad. Some rather strong cards here at the core of your strategy.

Coffin Queen is pretty good reanimation that can hit any graveyard, so you can use it to exile stuff from opponent's graveyard. Ophiomancer is a source of bodies you can use to block or to sacrifice, with potentially one per upkeep. Ayara, First of Locthwain is a nice lower-budget Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, clearly worse but still relevant.
Have you thought about Gravecrawler as a repeatable reanimation effect? Wins with an Aristocrats payoff, even if you're not infinite (you do have Black Market, which isn't quite infintie but is probably close enough after a turn or 2). If you don't mind ending up infinite, Phyrexian Altar or Pitiless Plunderer very easily go infinite with Gravecrawler, and your Rider can generate bodies off it, since it's not a token. Something like Midnight Reaper can draw off the deaths, as can Grim Haruspex.
Ashnod's Altar is a very good card to look at, even if it's just generating mana. Demon of Dark Schemes can do some crazy stuff with a creature like Underworld Hermit, especially with some sacrifice driven mana generation this can be a mana/energy positive transaction, so it can go infinite potentially.
