I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this but the combo you're trying to set up doesn't actually work. Supernatural Stamina cares about the creature not the magic card so the second time you sacrifice the Treasure Keeper it'll be a different permanent and won't come back. I couldn't find where in the rules it says this but when you think about it Bile Urchin or Death Cultist plus Supernatural Stamina are both instant wins that would break modern or even legacy if it worked like that.

The most similar combo you could pull off in standard I can think of is with Naru Meha, Master Wizard that's coming in Dominaria. Target the Yahenni, Undying Partisan with Supernatural Stamina then cast Naru in response to copy the spell except target herself. Let it resolve and sacrifice her. She'll come back and you can copy the spell again. This will do nothing unless you have a payoff lying around like a pitiless plunderer or ashes of the abhorrent. Also remember this doesn't work with Defiant Salvager as he can only sacrifice as a sorcery.

If you want to cast your whole deck tho I guess Sunbird's Invocation and Brass's Bounty or Paradox Engine and any mana-dork would be the place to start.

Anyway have fun chasing the combo dream my friend.

Well Death Cultist is a strictly better Bile Urchin

first of all:

modern is a fast format. 5 and 4 mana spells or abilities that are 3 colored, like you have, are not likely to even hit the battlefield because you'll die before it even happens (in most cases). if those 5 & 4 drops are not important to you, i suggest removing them from the deck, and putting creatures like Bile Urchin, Bloodbriar, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bontu the Glorified, Child of Thorns , Corpse Hauler, Doomed Necromancer, Frostling, Mortician Beetle

spells like Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters, Collateral Damage, Crack the Earth, Eldritch Evolution, Fling, Footsteps of the Goryo, Infernal Plunge, Plunge into Darkness

noncreature permanents like Demonic Appetite, Evolutionary Leap, Quest for the Gravelord

and sideboarding Boggart Forager

i'll keep searching for you tomorrow, hope this helps for now

First of all, with this high CMC you need 24 lands.

While I understand you are trying to sacrifice your creatures for beneficial effects, the high converted mana cost of your deck makes it kind of hard to work with.

Here are some lower cost creatures that could be good:

I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.
