Blessing of Leeches that's an interesting idea. I will have to look more into that one.

and I was just thinking about putting him back in. guess that's that then... back in he goes.

Thanks

I'd say that golgari sacrifice decks are pretty much similar in some way. I run a Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck which is a bit more about reanimation and automill, but still pretty similar to what you would run in yours. I guess you could try and swap out commanders if you have them in your deck (you should). Otherwise, tackling the problem could be done in many ways.

I'd say some good old reanimation effects to bring your commander back from the graveyard would go a long way: Animate Dead , Necromancy , Dance of the Dead , Ever After , Beacon of Unrest .

Another good strategy would be to ramp lands like crazy, even if a little less efficient: recur and sac many times Viridian Emissary , Solemn Simulacrum , Dawntreader Elk and similar.

One last way would be to protect Savra from removal: Blessing of Leeches , Lightning Greaves and such.

I'm stealing a couple of cards from this for my Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck lol. Blessing of Leeches , Dark Privilege , and Soul Channeling are so good, I'm surprised they're also so budget friendly. I'm really feelin' this deck... You're tempting me to make a mono black EDH deck lol.

Fireshrieker and Grappling Hook . Odious Trow for the Gift of the Deity combo. Blessing of Leeches so Virtus can attack even if he isn't unblockable.

Yes, the second ability stacks. The ruling from Gatherer "Each time Vizkopa Guildmage’s second ability resolves, a delayed triggered ability is created. Whenever you gain life that turn, each of those abilities will trigger. For example, if you activate the second ability twice, let those abilities resolve, then gain 2 life, each opponent will lose a total of 4 life."

I like your additions. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is great, just make sure to sac those thrulls before they kill him. Thrilling Encore is a budget version of Rise of the Dark Realms and is a good placeholder until you decide you want to make that investment for your black commander decks.

As for cards to cut, I would probably cut Blessing of Leeches , Soulmender and Dutiful Thrull .

There are a few other cards that that aren't on theme like: Aegis of the Gods , hexproof is good, but the creature is easy to kill. High Priest of Penance is a sold card but you want to give it indestructible or at least more toughness so you can abuse the damage trigger.

Also I would look at your high casting cost spells, if you don't see them making a big impact on the game you may want to switch them out. Lich's Mastery means you die to any type of Disenchant , which is a big risk. Gravewaker takes 13 mana to reanimate a creature Debtors' Knell is right at the edge of your budget, but is a better card. Plea for Guidance can only find 8 cards in your deck, and black has so many other tutor options.

Excited to see that Haunt performed well. I feel like it might get hated out of games without protection though, maybe run Imp's Mischief , Soul Channeling , or Blessing of Leeches to keep Haunt alive. Sudden Spoiling can also open up an opponent's board for an attack or stop creature combos.

I think I understand the combo, but why Wild Dogs and why Blessing of Leeches ?
