Ok so this is obviously not a tier one or probably not even a tier two deck but I've been trying to make a deck with demonic taskmaster since it came out and this is the first deck I'm gonna take to a tournament. I'm playing it in a tuesday night 4 round tournament tomorrow night so should I scrub out I won't care. Anyway, the idea of the deck is tons of undying creatures and creatures that can be played from the graveyard to minimize the downside of the taskmaster and maximize demonic rising and morbid effects. Also lashwrithe seems really strong with reassembling skeleton (as absolete as the skeleton is on its own). I'm just looking for ideas I may have missed. I've been playing this game for almost 20 years so please dont give me advice like "XXX is good, you should play it". Deckbuilding is more complicated than you should play a card because its good and in the same color. please give reasons and what cards it should replace and why it interacts better than it's replacement.

demonic rising seems out of place in your deck, especially as a 2 of. I would -2 demonic rising for +1 blood artist +1 skeleton. These two are going to workhorses in your deck. I also do not like the high priest. He seems too clunky and slow. -2 high priest +1 Cavern +1 Tragic Slip. And as good as butcher ghoul is in your deck, I think bloodflow connoisseur will be much better as he combos well with your skeleton as well. -4 butcher ghoul +4 Connoisseur.
