I want to fill up the graveyard with key creatures with the help of surveil. Lazav is to do most of the heavy lifting by taking the abilities of other creatures by using the graveyard as a tool crib. The best creatures are going to be the ones that have finishers or need to be dealt with immediately. Turn 3/4 seems to be the most important. It's important to have a Lazav out preferably by turn 3 so that you can set up with a 4 cmc creature that you'll copy and attack with. Chart Course is probably the 2nd best card in the deck because you will probably discard something that you want in the graveyard.
Theif of Sanity is also a test in removal as well as something that allows card advantage. Decent 3 drop to copy on turn 3 if Lazav is cast on turn 2.
I'm toying around with how to correctly get the statistics right on how easily you can get through the deck while filling up the graveyard. I also like the idea of other cards like crucible helping out in other ways by allowing us to just dump every land in from the deck and play lands from the graveyard instead. There are lots of tweaks that I'm sure this deck is gonna need.
I don't really even play standard which is why my cards will need more tweaking, but I figured not bad for what little I do know.
