Ok. I like it overall. I would pull dark ritual. I don’t think you need it. You do need 24 lands. You don’t need so many mountains. Add some good b,r lands. I would replace murder with Terminate. It’s cheaper and better. I would pull vein drinker and bloodline necromsncer. They are too slow and not good enough. I would add some Gravepurge instead. Maybe add some hand disruption via Blightning. Definitely has potential for a budget deck.

Hey there! I'm here to try and help your deck grow and develop a strategy, because at the moment your deck looks like a Singleton Creature-Only deck, no offence intended.

First off, Angrath is a terrific include, try and run 2 more. What I think you should develop here is a light control build that forces players to Discard while you swing in to bring the win in. You need some more consistency, so try and run 4-3 of each copy I suggest. First off, Playset of Blightning. It'll keep your opponents down and deal some damage. Inquisition of Kozilek is good, but a tad pricey, so save up for a playset too. Cryptborn Horror looks like it could really be the star of the show here. Essentially your strategy would be to deal tons of damage in a single turn while your opponents doesn't have anything to respond with (Due to you forcing them to discard), and then play Cryptborn Horror and have a huge threat your opponent can't deal with. To make Cryptborn work, you'll want to run 4 Lightning Bolts, and some creatures that hit in for damage very quickly, something maybe like Reckless Bushwhacker. Duress could be good too if you can't afford Thoughtseize. Remember, the information that these cards give you by letting you see your opponent's hand is very important, because you can anticipate what they'll do. Run more of Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, she's great in this. Okay, so you'll want more removal than just Lightning Bolt, so putting in a playset of Fatal Push will be a good idea. Other than that, running Dragonskull Summit and Graven Cairns will mean you won't have troubles with the wrong color of mana.

Blightning would be pretty fun here

Also if you want more rats then Rotting Rats is good

Grisly Salvage is sorta just a less efficient version of Communes, although I really wanted to run it.

Blightning is a maybe, gotta do testing first.

I don't do competitive EDH, but discard-combo seems to work around the tables I play at; my personal favorite is Nath of the Gilt-Leaf with Sadistic Hypnotist or Mind Slash. Skull Rend is the multiplayer Blightning, and Waste Not should be a key piece. Just make sure your friend has a way to close out the game, unless he wants to be Enemy No. 1 in the next game.

As others have mentioned, one-off discard spells like Blightning aren't particularly powerful in multiplayer games. Discarding becomes powerful when you're able to either repetitively force your opponents discard or do it in mass. It becomes even more powerful when you translate the card advantage into damage or other value.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer is built around cycling through players hands with wheel effects (Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Windfall, etc.) and gaining value / damage from Waste Not and Liliana's Caress-like abilities. While this isn't a top-tier strategy, it can certainly hold its own in most groups.
