t3hdarkness on What are you gonna do, send it to my graveyard?

Some of the options I know aren't the most budget friendly but Mesmeric Orb Might be a better way than Traumatize to fill graveyards although with cards like Dralnu, Lich Lord and Call to Mind that's hard to tell. If you do add to the milling abilities, or even if you don't Undead Alchemist does a lot of work towards growing your horde. Geth, Lord of the Vault is also pretty handy at filling

Now this is meta dependent, but how often do you see yourself casting the CMC 6-8spells before the game ends?

You could cut some of the upper end to reinforce the lower with cards like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat. If you want to stay closer to theme, Vengeful Dead Also causes life loss. The first two would also help mitigate the negative side of Dark Prophecy and reinforce the existing cards like Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher.

Cauldron of Souls and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed double the value of some of your deck's abilities.

Nantuko Husk can get big for a turn and is a fine sac outlet, but Carrion Feeder gets big and stays big.

A few more sac outlets and amplifiers (like, say, Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Viscera Seer or Spawning Pit and a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos) + counters-and-tokens-matter cards (like Doubling Season and Parallel Lives and Hardened Scales and Winding Constrictor + a Cauldron of Souls, Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat might be fun to test here.

I run a similar list at Mazirek Counters. Please stop by if you'd ever like to compare notes.

Have fun brewing!

Two cards to maybe consider Cauldron of Souls almost another copy of mikaeus and Rise of the Dark Realms as a win con.

Figured you already have the Curse of the Swine in. The first combo gives you everyone's creatures as pigs, but at least it clears all of your opponents creatures. The second I just found when my friend played the card, Cauldron of Souls, a few days ago and giant light bulb went off. Quicksilver Fountain would help slow your opponents down and you could utilize your Seasinger again. Cheers!

justinspruiell: Cauldron of Souls gives persist, not undying.

If you want to get key creatures into the graveyard then may I recommend Corpse Connoisseur. To make your creatures undying add Cauldron of Souls. Just a few ideas otherwise nice deck I love graveyard play.

chadsansing on Sekā€™Kuar: Sac Begets Sac

Seems like a great shell for Food Chain, Doubling Season, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, and maybe Prossh, Skyraider of Kher (as an alternative commander) and Wasitora, Nekoru Queen. With your token generation, you could really close out games using Ashnod's Altar (or Food Chain) with a Comet Storm or Torment of Hailfire. You could even cast a Burn at the Stake against a targeted player before sac-ing for mana.

Cauldron of Souls is an all-star if you have to sac non-token creatures.

Have fun!
