Athreos, God of Passage
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to white and black is less than seven, Athreos isn't a creature.
When another creature you own dies, return it to your hand unless target opponent pays three life.

If I target an opponent with 1 or 2 life can they still pay the 3 life to keep my creature in the graveyard? Or if I keep them alive can I then just keep targeting them forcing them to choose to let my creature return to my hand?

I just converted my Athreos, God of Passage edh deck recently so that I could then separately make both a Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck. I have to say even already that Im really liking Meren even though its not 100% done its more like 75% towards what I consider complete.
I also have a friend who plays mimeoplasm and it certainly can get pretty scary but honestly I feel his deck can more so get shut down by Counterspells than mine. I honestly prefer meren myself over a voltron like strategy as I think the deck is more resilient and its cards are more synergistic with each other. My friend either tries to win through self mill and Laboratory Maniac or commander damage/infect damage from usually Mimeoplasm, Lord of Extinction, Blighted Agent, and other things. I dont think you could go wrong with either, but I myself would if choosing here again go for meren.

Sweet list and theme.
I also wonder about rounding out the sac package with a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos and something like Athreos, God of Passage + Blood Artist + Zulaport Cutthroat + Cauldron of Souls for recursive sacrifices and life-gain. Phyrexian Reclamation and Vampiric Rites might also be helpful in that respect.
Have fun playing!

Smugger's Copter is something I haven't really liked too much in D&T builds, but I haven't done extensive testing with it so I'll have to look into it. I can certainly see times when it would be invaluable, but I can also see many times where it would be very clunky. As for Athreos, God of Passage, it is something I'm playing around with over the copy of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar I had in the sideboard. While I haven't had the chance to play with it yet, the idea is that it is a nightmare for control decks because of how their sweepers work, and it can really do damage against decks looking to slowly kill your creatures like midrange. Not only does it let you get them back or punish your opponent, but you also get to reuse ETBs off of the creatures like Flickerwisp. One thing that is noteworthy is that it keeps your Aether Vials relevant and (hopefully) busy. When comparing it to Gideon, it doesn't provide the same threat of value each and every turn they can't deal with it without a great amount of setup, it also is much more difficult to get rid of, not having the same weakness to creature combat that Gideon has. I also really like that you can put Athreos onto the battlefield with Aether Vial, something that I think is pretty rad to get through those counterspell heavy decks. It can also become a formidable creature when you manage to turn it on, and besides something like Path to Exile into Supreme Verdict, you don't need to worry about overextending. If you end up trying it out, I'd love to hear your experience with it!

Athreos, God of Passage is mostly focused on enter the battlefield effects that create a ton of value. Life gain could work as a utility mechanism but I wouldn't rely on Felidar Sovereign as a win-con with Atrheos. Your commander is best at grinding and taxing.
Your deck could use some sac outlets to activate Athreos's ability.
- Ashnod's Altar
- Phyrexian Altar
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Teysa, Orzov Scion
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier
- Merciless Executioner
Furthermore you need some much needed mana rocks to be consistent with your game-plan.
And last of some cards that I really like within an Athreos build;
- Necropotence, combine it with Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel for card advantage or just fill up your graveyard and reanimate it with Living Death
- Ashen Rider
- Karmic Guide
- Harvester of Souls/Grim Haruspex
- Reaper from the Abyss
- Grand Abolisher
I hope there are some cards within this list that fit your build!

This is a really fun archetype!
Have you tested with Athreos, God of Passage (a bit expensive at $10 or so), Authority of the Consuls, Cauldron of Souls, Disciple of Bolas, Spawning Pit, Viscera Seer, Wall of Reverence, or Zulaport Cutthroat?
Have fun brewing!

I've gotten some suggestions through comments and other people and I'm having trouble working out which cards would be better in and out of this deck.
Any help or extra suggestions would be much appreciated!! :D
