Aristocrat token deck with a dredge/reanimation subtheme. More description coming soon!

The deck has a large graveyard theme as we want lots of creatures in our graveyard to maximize on Izoni's ability to create insect tokens. The deck includes multiple ways to put cards in and take cards out of our graveyard.

Dredgers: Life from the Loam, Golgari Thug, Dakmor Salvage, Shambling Shell, and Stinkweed Imp all have the broken Dredge mechanic which allows us to bring these cards back to the hand at the "cost" of filling up our graveyard more.

Self-Mill and Discard: Underrealm Lich, Grisly Salvage, Satyr Wayfinder and Stitcher's Supplier allow us to pitch cards from the top of our library into our graveyard.

Reanimation: Journey to Eternity  Flip, Eternal Witness, Regrowth, Dread Return, Victimize, Animate Dead, Life from the Loam, and Golgari Thug all bring important pieces back from our graveyard while Living Death and Twilight's Call act as mass reanimation spells once our yard is full.

The deck aims to win through draining out our opponents Aristocrat style. The deck also includes some token makers in addition to Izoni to ensure we have enough of a critical mass of tokens to drain opponents out or sacrifice for value. Sacrifice outlets help us to instant-speed drain opponents if Izoni is offline or if we don't have enough + to repeatedly sac.

Aristocrat Package: Poison-Tip Archer, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, and Falkenrath Noble all help us drain out opponents.

Sacrifice Outlets: Ashnod's Altar and Viscera Seer are free sac outlets that give us value while Attrition helps us control the board. Razaketh, the Foulblooded allows us to sac and find the pieces necessary to drain out opponents.

Token Generation: Parallel Lives and Doubling Season double the amount of tokens that Izoni (and others) create. At 4 and 5 mana they can come down before Izoni does. Avenger of Zendikar and Sengir Autocrat ETB create a large army of tokens for value. I chose these over activated abilities like Jade Mage and Ant Queen because they are less mana-intensive and can immediately create tokens when cast or reanimated. Creakwood Liege produces tokens and also gives Izoni's tokens a nice +2/+2 buff in case we want to go wide for an alpha strike. Tendershoot Dryad spits out tokens at a rapid rate while buffing them too.
