Highlights
Powerful Undead: The Undead affected by the Corpsecrafter feats are given supreme buffs. Bonus to damage, initiative, movement speed, HP and an explosion should they be killed.
Shaman Auras & Invocations: To boost the Undead further, small buffs to their attacks or damage are nice. The Darkness Invocation is essential for Wraiths and such to be out in light.
Divine Casting: Only loses 2 casting levels, still netting plenty 9th level spells. 3 domains for bonus spell choice. Deathbound Domain being necessary to expand how many undead can be controlled (and combined with Desecrate).

Equip Me
Any equipment for Clerics or Undead boosting would be good enough. The build isn't equipment reliant.

Comments
The build came to me after trying to find any class that grants +2 base Will for early entry to MoS. Has interesting flavour and definitely makes your Necromancer stand out from the rest.
