Bloodsoaked Champion Discussion

Doomed Traveler seems necessary
Champion of the Parish seems like a decent alt synergy.
Cartel Aristocrat seems amazing too. evasive and a sac outlet
Zulaport Cutthroat can be a boon. lets you ping out decks that fetched and shocked too much and give you a life buffer to stall with

I would add: Cultivate Nature's Lore (if you get shocks) Path of Ancestry Karplusan Forest Blood-Chin Rager Lightning Greaves Swiftfoot Boots Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist Secure the Wastes Garna, the Bloodflame Metallic Mimic Butcher of Malakir Nath of the Gilt-Leaf Swan Song Hero's Downfall Anguished Unmaking Enlightened Tutor Herald's Horn Kindred Dominance Temple Garden Stomping Ground
Right off the bat I'd cut: Ahn-Crop Champion Cryptolith Rite Harvest Season Bloodsoaked Champion Decorated Champion Chief of the Edge Edric, Spymaster of Trest Herald of Dromoka Rubblebelt Raiders Sosuke, Son of Seshiro Druids' Repository Thrasher Brute Radiant Destiny Song of Freyalise Throne of the God-Pharaoh

Let me see if I can remember what I originally typed...
I basically seconded the Genesis Chamber suggestion - that card is nuts with Bloodsoaked Champion and Nether Traitor. If you want to go more towards that kind of "whenever a non-token creature enters/dies" thing, I'd consider including Reassembling Skeleton. These can all be tutored by Buried Alive or Corpse Connoisseur and if you decide to include the latter one, Gravecrawler could also be a worthy addition even if your deck's zombie count ain't otherwise that high. These weenies that come back from the graveyard also work really well with Pawn of Ulamog and Ogre Slumlord that someone already suggested.
Carnival of Souls might work here too if you wanna go more combo oriented. I think the card might actually work pretty well with your commander.

I second Genesis Chamber. That card can be a house with Nether Traitor and Bloodsoaked Champion. You can add in Reassembling Skeleton too and you can reliably get one (or all) of them with Corpse Connoisseur or Buried Alive. If you decide to 'Connoisseur Gravecrawler can work too, allthough your zombie count otherwise doesn't seem that high.
If you wanna go combo(ish), Carnival of Souls might actually be good with your commander. Also, I've found out that Smothering Abomination and Dark Prophecy are pretty good sources of card draw in these decks.
Hope that helps! :)

ooh, I always love me an aristocrats deck. I know it is budget but I've got some suggestions (within budget) that can help improve this deck.
I used to play an aristocrats deck with Return to the Ranks. It was pretty medium. What I found out was, you will end up killing your op in one big turn where you sac everything and bring it back and sac again. It was never a little at a time because if I did it slowly, they would just remove the key pieces or win before I had a chance to bleed them out.
So with that in mind, here are my suggestions: recursive cards like Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton are good for grinding, but not for explosive turns. What is best for that is cards like Doomed Traveler (which you have) and Hunted Witness (which you need). The reason they are explosive is because, without needing extra mana, they double each sacrifice. So with two Blood Artist effects in play and a recursion card you only need 2 dorks and a sac outlet (albeit that is 5 cards) to deal 19 dmg.
The other thing is, looking at your curve, you have way too many 2 drops. This was also a problem that I faced when I played the deck, it means that on turns 1 and 3, you often get stuck with extra mana laying around. Here is what I would suggest: replace Go for the Throat with Tragic Slip and replace Bloodthrone Vampire with Viscera Seer. That way you shift the cost towards 1 drops and can get cards out there faster.
The last thing, which I did not figure out, was card velocity. I could never get enough cards out fast enough. Many people suggested Collected Company but I wasnt about to pay 4 mana for two 1/1s. Others suggested ways to dump cards into my graveyard like Satyr Wayfinder and the like. But this exposed my deck even more to graveyard hate. Either way, all of this requires green which you don't have. So if you find yourself running out of card velocity, maybe try Night's Whisper or Read the Bones or a similar effect to that.
Hopefully my ramblings help. Let me know if you have any questions, and if you like my suggestions: check out my podcast all about brewing decks at mtgcoldbrew.buzzsprout.com (we're also on itunes and spotify)
P.S. cut those tap lands, you dont need the life gain and they will just slow you down.

lagotripha thank you for commenting. I think I will try to make the deck more heavily focused on sacrificing things. Do you think Bloodsoaked Champion is a bad sacrifice option? I thought it might be good since it could come back when I attacked. Do you mind if I ask you to look at my deck (this one specifically) a few more times to comment on if you think if it's improved at all?

I would recommend Bloodsoaked Champion as its a card you can sacrifice over and over again. Assuming you're attacking at least.

Here are some other options you could consider Bloodsoaked Champion, Goblin Bushwhacker, Pelt Collector, Rhys the Redeemed, Chief of the Edge, Chief of the Scale, Decorated Champion, Den Protector, Duskwatch Recruiter Flip, Hidden Dragonslayer, Rushblade Commander, Thorn Lieutenant, Voltaic Brawler, and Blood-Chin Fanatic.
Also a quick note about the mana base. Having so few basics in the deck could be quite dangerous. Certainly there is always the possibility of not hitting the correct colors, but having more basics lets you use more flexible ramp and as is, a Blood Moon or Ruination would be crushing.
