Abhorrent Overlord

Creature — Demon

Flying

When Abhorrent Overlord enters the battlefield, put a number of 1/1 black Harpy creature tokens with flying onto the battlefield equal to your devotion to black. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to black.)

At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice a creature.

Hey man cool build. Definitely a +1 from me!

My version of this is a little more competitive than most, but I don't currently have my Yawgmoth deck on tappedout. Some cards that I've found particularly useful are these:

Sengir Autocrat , Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Myr Battlesphere , Abhorrent Overlord , and Chittering Witch

These cards give you a ton of extra creatures to sacrifice to your commander. This means you'll be drawing more cards, getting closer to your win cons, and removing more creatures via -1/-1 counters.

They will also pair very well with your Sifter of Skulls and Pawn of Ulamog as well as all the other great death triggers you have going on.

If you are looking for a good infinite combo (I'm not a fan of them myself, but I don't judge those who enjoy them), add in Geralf's Messenger . Sacrifice him, he comes back and drains your opponent immediately, put the -1/-1 counter on him and draw, repeat until you kill someone. The only problem is that you'll be losing life as well from your commander. Add a Blood Artist to the combo and it'll cancel out the life loss and you're infinite.

Hope this helps! If you want some interesting deck ideas, I'd love for you to check mine out and give me an upvote. Feedback is welcome!

Bishop of Wings + Conspiracy (naming Angel) is another neat combo you might like. The bishop works with Divine Visitation too, as does Requiem Angel (which also works with Conspiracy). You might like these too: Aetherworks Marvel , Fanatical Devotion , Abhorrent Overlord , Painter's Servant

Hey dbpunk thanks for the advice!

I don't feel that my meta allowed me to use Mycoloth or Bloodspore Thrinax to much Value, always got removed before any profit on my behalf and were always too slow/too much mana for them.

Avenger of Zendikar and Abhorrent Overlord are good idea's, i'd probably opt for Abhorrent Overlord over Avenger, though with me trying to trim down the mana curve for this deck and help make it flow better and have more synergy, I doubt either will find a place in the deck, unfortunately.

Patron of the Vein is there purely for the "Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, exile it" wording. Since i can always guarantee forcing opponents to sac their boards, It's good anti graveyard decks for opponents.

Some Persist creatures may be an idea, but idk which ones i'd run. I don't just want purely exp booster persist creatures, I like having decent ETB effects or something that helps my board.

Probably should get Avenger of Zendikar or Abhorrent Overlord . Both do great work in a BG deck. Also Mycoloth is great in this type of deck.

Since you're already running Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , you should also run some creatures with persist. You can also double down on that using Bloodspore Thrinax .

Also, since you only have 4 vampires including Patron of the Vein , it might be a good idea to switch it out for something else.

Any sort of ETB effect will be perfect.

Also Flameshadow Conjuring would be perfect to get double triggers off of your creatures, and it gives the token haste so you can swing without losing much since it'd be exiled at your end step anyway. This way you get twice the value off of the ETB and you can swing for some boardstate pressure.

HERE is a list of creatures in Rakdos that have Madness.

Kebukai: Chainer is definitely a consideration that I'm looking at. If he had some form of evasion (flying, fear, etc) I'd have him in already. I like being able to transition into sick beats if the game plan is disrupted. In this list, Abhorrent Overlord and Mogis's Marauder are pseduo win conditions.
