DasTree i was thinking about adding Anger and Blood Artist i'm just not sure what to take out, and to be honest i don't feel like Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker would have enough targets, Splinter Twin would be a way with so many legendary creatures though it loses a lot of value.

Blood Artist is super good. He is a must include.

I would run all the cheap soul sisters like Pious Evangel  Flip, Soul Warden, Healer of the Pride, Suture Priest, and perhaps Angelic Chorus.

For card draw Vampiric Rites is on theme and gains you life, Well of Lost Dreams is amazing Phyrexian Arena is a no brainer, along with Mentor of the Meek, and also Greed

Anguished Unmaking is my favorite removal spell, along with Utter End. For board whites Merciless Eviction, and Terminus along with basic board whipes like Wrath of God and Day of Judgment.

Creature wise Pontiff of Blight is sweet for draining life, along with Blind Obedience and Loxodon Gatekeeper for some added control. Karlov of the Ghost Council is sweet too. Erebos, God of the Dead prevents people from gaining life.

For a game ender you can sac your board with Ashnod's Altar and then cast Exsanguinate

Have you considered adding Reveillark? It can bring back Blood Artist or Gray Merchant of Asphodel and it plays pretty cool with Karmic Guide too.

I play B/W in Commander too and if you happen to have good life gain but bad draw, I'd actually consider Ad Nauseam.

Also Debtors' Knell and Sanguine Bond could be worth playing.

To go through the maybe board and the things that stand out are Blood Artist, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Anger (which I run). But these cards are dependent on what kind of deck you want watt run. creature heavy? combo heavy? mixture of both? Prossh is beyond versatile. almost anything you want to do in Jund will be useful with Prossh.

Another tutor that is inexpensive would be Rune-Scarred Demon and if you are running a prossh build you need a Westvale Abbey  Flip

Nath of the Gilt-Leaf goes infinite with Sadistic Hypnotist.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion also does infinite combo with Darkest Hour and Blasting Station, even though any sac outlet + Blood Artist could do the trick.

Sun Titan is also very cool with Brago, King Eternal, but usable in almost any White deck. Also if Brago has either double or first strike you can blink the Titan to avoid it getting killed most of the time.

Also adding certain tutors might also be nice, for example Beseech the Queen and Open the Armory.

May I suggest Plague of Vermin? Your opponents will likely not choose to pay life, since a lower life total makes them easier to burn and tokens do nothing to protect them against your deck. Meanwhile, you'll be paying a bit of life to gain large amounts of tokens to sacrifice, and you can even get your life back afterwards with cards like Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble and Blood Artist :)
