Hercules23, the most logical upgrade path is based on the amount you're willing to spend for upgrades, but I don't know what you're willing to spend. If you give me an idea of how much over $200 you want to spend then I can better help with upgrades. Phyrexian Altar is the best upgrade to make because it's an infinite combo with Oathsworn Vampire + Blood Artist/Cruel Celebrant because of eminence. This combo gives you a win condition with Vamps without having to attack.

I like the list! It is comparable to a Lifedrain deck with Athreos, God of Passage as commander that I recently created. You focus on lifegain instead but I think both decks are fun and interactive to play. Three things I noticed: 1) Focussing on gaining life, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun may fit better for you than Suture Priest. 2) Instead of Drana's Emissary there are lots of options that potentially provide more than one trigger per round (e.g. Blood Artist, see my decklist). 3) I have read that the infinite combo of Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood does not let you win the game as long as you cannot interrupt the infinite triggers (e.g. by destroying one of them).
Feedback/Likes on my deck appreciated :)

Hey, nice start and base. Several good cards and interactions here.
Some interesting lower mana cost card interactions for repeatable sac with Korvold that are within the budget:
Invasion and Zone create a token that you can sac each turn when you attack with Korvold. Skeleton and Champion can be a repeatable creature to sac since they can reanimate themselves for two mana. Excavator lets you sac a land which you can play from your graveyard. A repeatable token/creature to sac each turn also good with Evolutionary Leap for one mana to put a creature into your hand.
I'm a big fan of one drop mana dorks when playing so much green and with Korvold. Dorks are ramp to play Korvold faster and then can be sac fodder. Goose is fine, but consider more?
Lumberjack is good with 10x Forests; it can be a repeatable source of sac that also makes mana. It makes it so a single Forest can equal four mana (combination of green/red) since you can tap the Forest to make one green mana before you sac it with Lumberjack. It's good with Ramunap Excavator since then you can play the Forest from your graveyard.
Fierce Empath is a budget creature tutor to get a threat such as Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or Broodmother. After tutoring Empath can be sac fodder. Prossh is powerful with Korvold since it can make a large amount of Kobolds who can be sac fodder and Prossh is also a sac outlet. For six mana if Prossh sacs all the Kobolds created can equal six +1/+1 counters on Korvold and draw six cards. You can even pay more than six mana to cast Prossh to create more than six Kobolds.
Could improve the manabase with some budget lands:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Savage Lands
- Llanowar Wastes
- Karplusan Forest
- Cinder Glade
- Smoldering Marsh
- Jund Panorama
- Ash Barrens
Good luck with your deck.

Already run enough Blood Artist effects that Bastion seems unnecessary. I like that it's harder for your opp's to deal with, but I dislike that it's a bit harder to recur it. Mothra's great value but you need to run Solemnity to combo off with her. I'd prefer both in a more stax enchantment focused build with Academy Rector/Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos/Martyr's Bond

hello love this deck and thinking of building it with minor changes due to budget but I was wondering whats you opinion on Zulaport Cutthroat because like if you go infinite with Blood Artist or any drainer it don't matter but if you can't go infinite wouldn't Cutthroat be better for the facet he hits everyone

Hey Rick39, +1!
This looks pretty solid, tbh. It's hard to muck up Meren goodstuff. I would cut Carrion Feeder and Syr Konrad, the Grim or Zulaport Cutthroat: yes, they're good, but this looks more like Battlecruiser than Aristocrats. Blood Artist is better than both because of its low CMC and only gets hate from one person (your target).
Categories help a lot. You can order them by adding "#" like so:
1x Spawning Pit #Sacrifice #Tokens
You could include some fancy combos (eg. with Protean Hulk) or synergies to end the game. If you like grinding, be sure you have a few ways to pay commander tax indefinitely or loop with Meren like Black Market or Doomed Necromancer.
If you want to speed the deck up, play more tokens or self-mill.
Seems pretty tame, would be fun in most playgroups, imo.

This looks pretty similar to a regular Yawgmoth, Thran Physician combo deck.
