Sweet deck. Why no Stitcher's Supplier ? It helps you fill your graveyard and it’s a target for Blood for Bones .

Blood for Bones was an auto-include.

No further changes to the deck.

if the goal is a standard deck half of the cards you're considering would be illegal to use for the format (maybe not half, but a lot of the best looking ones).

Bishop of Wings and Divine Visitation are both rather strong combo'd together (in fact with a zero cost sac outlet they go infinite, but standard lacks one, unless comboing with Kykar instead of visitation in WUR colors with a 3rd card) and I suggest going to 4 of on each (or at least 4 of on the bishop, 3 can still work kinda on the other).

Now to make the deck stronger I'd suggest making large cuts on the non visitation 4 cmc+ cards, maybe keep 1 teysa, elendra, and 2 kaya's wrath and cut the rest of those expensive cards. (maybe 1 absolution as it can kind of shut down some decks I guess.

Now with all of that cut out I would suggest getting all the priests as she's a strong sac outlet, a couple Pitiless Pontiff would also help with sac outlets (with bishop visitation out every 1 mana you spend to sac any non bishop creature would make an angel token! Another great sac outlet can be from your removal Spark Harvest can be really strong, giving you value from your morbid triggers while removing a creature.

Now only 4 1 cmc creatures can be a bit light, Footlight Fiend is the first that comes to mind for me as there is just so many good early creatures that have 1 health, though landing is also quite good.

Spark Harvest is pretty good as nearly every deck runs some sort of high cmc spell that it will hit.

Blood for Bones I'll admit might not be the best card, but a single copy can be strong value.

I am flattered to be commissioned to have a look at this deck. Bontu the Glorified could be useful in this deck. Animate Dead and Dance with the Dead are fun reanimation spells. Grimoire of the Dead may also come in useful. Hissing Miasma is a maybe. Haunting Wind is fun. Endless Ranks of the Dead provides you with sacrifice outlets. Blood for Bones may also be fun. Emeria Angel may also be fun. Requiem Angel is also a provider of sacrifice outlets.

I hope these help!

Man this deck is fun. I pilot it on MTG:A and I don't have Jace, and yet Blood for Bones and Agent of Treachery are just auto-concede territory in BO1.

I am unsure about the Wall of Lost Thoughts as there is a lot of redundant self mill and I find I need removal more times than not. I thought abought adding Cavalier of Thorns but the triple green is hard to cast sometimes.

I run a one of Vilis, Broker of Blood because he is bigger than a lot of threats and he is a lot of card draw especially if you can get him out with blood for bones. He is essential I just like him.

Tried a different build for Blood for Bones . Works much better if you add some bombs. But then becomes a totally different deck. Scholar of the Ages is far too slow for constructed. Now testing the rest
