There are a few other, "Oops, lethal" card i was looking at were Rally the Ancestors and Boros Charm. Rallying back a few creatures with a sac outlets and a payoff like Cruel Celebrant can easily lay down a lot of damage at instant speed. Instant speed double strike can get a surprise commander kill. The ability to protect your board is icing on the cake.
I really like Offspring's Revenge. Though it is probably too slow. But i mean, the kitty is cute so... playable.
Ruinous Ultimatum is pretty silly too. I think cheaper board wipes are more effective since all of your creatures dying it kind of the point.

I would look at some of the commons and try some of these. Gurmag Swiftwing Brutal Hordechief Wingmate Roc Ankle Shanker Butcher of the Horde Garna, the Bloodflame Ride Down Mardu Charm Primevals' Glorious Rebirth

I'm always in favour of flavour builds with themed categories.
Just be aware that you do sometimes have to shove some non-themed cards in, to make such decks work.

I just looked up the ruling while writing this comment Marionette Master 's ability checks on resolution so you would deal 8 and the second trigger would deal 0. With having to use Refurbish to reanimate God-Pharoah's Gift it is doubtful that you will draw another. Especially considering that you are on the self mill plan. Some sac outlets that I think are much better are Cartel Aristocrat Blood Bairn Butcher of the Horde

jackm14 I'm playtesting with Boros Charm as it's a lot more versatile than Heartfire . Yeah the situation where you sac a Dreadhorde Butcher to Heartfire for 7 face damage is awesome, but the ideal case. With Boros Charm you can deal the 4 to face when you need the reach, but you can also dodge sweepers if you want to, give Dreadhorde Butcher double strike for another counter, or just hit Butcher of the Horde for big damage. I really like Midnight Reaper , there definitely needs to be some draw to beat out midrange decks, and I haven't found a better option.

rotimislaw & -blink- According to this thread athreos is punished by RIP and leyline.
Both Mortify and Disenchant are sideboard viable so I could make room for those. I haven't really touched this deck in a long time so its a bit funny to see people still commenting on it xD, it's pretty dated.
Lightning Skelemental is new to me, looks good enough to earn a spot. Maybe removing Butcher of the Horde . Idk if that's the right choice or not. Also considering removing Fulminator Mage from mainboard at least, even with athreos it may be a bit weak.
