Even though it is a one-drop reanimator, it is made quite less powerful when compared with Animate Dead. Swamp Island Ritual Entomb Emrakul Stifle Animate Dead

They allowed the Graveborn deck to have Entomb, Reanimate, Exhume, and Animate Dead....but they chose Diabolic Servitude over this when it came to the Urza Block card to use.

The creatures they chose were scarily similar to a high-profile tournament winning list, except in singleton, not in 4x.

I think that Graveborn is, forgive me, the 'skeleton' of what is almost the best possible list Reanimator can have. DREDGE can do better, but I would say that buying 4 copies of PDS: Graveborn gives you all the best cards you need for Reanimator.

I get that utility cards being returned can be great C.A. (looking at Bob and Tiago), but I think Tarmogoyf and Skaab Ruinator might be the only 'Bomb' cards I would prefer to Unearth than Reanimate. And tbh, if you are bringing guys back from the dead anytime earlier than Turn 5, without having to sac them at end of turn, then you are doing something broken, are already getting superb value, and should probably be courteous enough to end the game as... (see all)

Blood Vassal. If you've got two black mana, this and Entomb and Blood Vasal somewhere in your deck, you can cycle through them, adding two cards to your graveyard, 2 black mana whenever you need it, which then goes to the graveyard adding further to it...

Turn 1: Swamp Springleaf Drum 5 cards
Turn 2: Swamp Entomb/Unearth tap, Blood Pet 2 cards
Turn 3: Swamp tap +1, sac +2 mana, sac +1 mana, tap swamps for +3, altogether that ends up as a certain Phage the Untouchable.

Cadaver Imp seems a natural fit.
