Black creature spells you cast cost less to cast.
Whenever you cast a creature spell, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.
Bontu's Monument Discussion
9 hours ago
You are making the same mistake a lot of people do, you have all these cards that will generate you sac fodder later in the game but little actual early game sac fodder.
Crypt Ghast helps ramp and it has “Extort”.
Bontu's Monument is cost reduction ramp and and damage to all opponents on you casting a creature.
Bontu the Glorified is a good sac outlet with a death trigger built in.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is a sac outlet and removal in one.
Spawning Pit free sac outlet creature generator.

Put in a bit more Land, you should be running 22-24 land depending on how much your CMC is. As SynergyBuild says, you should definitely be running 4x Godless Shrine. Also, in two color decks, you shouldn't be running lotus field. Run Vampire Nighthawk instead of your Bloodthirsty Aerialist . Also, run 6 swamps and 3 plains instead of 3 swamps and 6 plains. Maybe throw in a few more swamps while you're at it. In my opinion, I wouldn't run any plains, just more swamps. You should get more dual lands that don't have to be tapped on their first turn. Also, your cards have a very high mana cost so I would throw in a few Bontu's Monument Also, your creature cards should work well together, but your's don't seem to work while together. I would get rid of Call to the Feast and replace it with some creature cards that can summon vampires, such as Bloodline Keeper Flip or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet , but if you run them, only run 1-3 as they are expensive. I would run fewer Champions of dusk,as they are expensive and you don't have much lifegain. Also, run 1 less Bolas's Citadel and maybe run some more lifegain, like Drana's Emissary , Rest for the Weary or Chaplain's Blessing

With Death Tigger Aristocrats these are my suggestions.
Archon of Justice Recurable Removal.
Bontu's Monument cost reduction+creature EBT life loss trigger all opponents.
Bontu the Glorified sac outlet+activated death trigger.
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim sac outlet+lifegain or removal.
Spawning Pit sac outlet+creature creation
Butcher of Malakir don't let the high cmc deter you from him. Being able to remove your opponents creatures is a huge help to the deck.
Review you sac fodder. There are plenty of good cards but in the end if you don't have sac fodder which is one of the 4 key pieces for an aristocrats deck you will stall out or fail to even get going before you are taken out of the game.
Sacrifice Outlets 8-10

I've never before considered Odric, Lunarch Marshal and he will get added.
I'll try out Skullclamp .
I see your point on Dictate of Heliod . While it's fun, it doesn't really do much.
I'll try taking out Dreamstone Hedron for some cheaper ramp.
I like Staff of the Sun Magus , but with the cards you have suggested to me, I'll take it out.
I like Archangel of Tithes because it's an Angel and it has high Devotion, so I won't be taking that out.
I'm not sure about my LGS's current meta, so I'll be keeping Angel of Jubilation for now.
Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.
I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.
Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.
Emancipation Angel is going in.
I don't like Mind's Eye because I think it's too expensive for what it does.
I'm not a big fan of Dusk because it will kill most of my guys.

I'd highly suggest to remove Bontu's Monument , as for 3 mana you get only half the effect, highly inefficient.

I’d like to add Bontu's Monument but not sure what to cut for it. Suggestions?

This looks like a really fun zombies deck with a lot of flexibility.
Shred Memory is useful graveyard hate that can also be used to tutor up one of your two-drops (like Altar of Dementia). Dimir Machinations is a possible tutor for your Ashnod's Altar that could also just be used to deal with something like an opponent's scry. The more ways you can get access to your free, instant-speed sac outlets, the better.
I don't like Temple of the False God because it's shut me out of producing mana too many times, and I think something like Crypt of Agadeem might offer better options for a deck like this.
Gavony Unhallowed feels like a cut.
