Creature — Troll
When Clackbridge Troll enters the battlefield, target opponent creates three 0/1 white Goat creature tokens.
At the beginning of combat on your turn, any opponent may sacrifice a creature. If a player does, tap Clackbridge Troll, you gain 3 life, and you draw a card.

Clackbridge Troll Discussion

change made to this. I made the mana base better. This is something I'm not very good at. I'm from a time when mana fixed it'self...
I am also running Extinction Event now because I like that it only costs 1 black so I don't get stuck not being able to wipe the board early. I have also been seeing a lot of graveyard shenanigans and it's nice to have something to address that. I plan to keep tinkering with the wipes to see which combination works best.
The other change is that I've replaced Brokkos, Apex of Forever with Clackbridge Troll and removed the accompanying island. I was missing the life gain after I canned the Leyline Prowler so I get that back + some card draw and I still get to keep a big-bodied beater. It also prevents me from drawing that island in my opening hand which was causing occasional trouble.

+1 Love the deck! These might be some fun cards to try!
Alsoninwas wondering, do you ever feel like the deck is lacking enough card

I would add Castle Locthwain, if you feel like you need more card draw.
While Polukranos, Unchained synergizes well with the graveyard theme, it is a non-bo with Undergrowth and Fiend Artisan. It does provide removal and card advantage though, so maybe a copy would be okay to try out.
Clackbridge Troll, in my experience, is never quite good enough. Giving the opponent options is rarely a good thing. Having your big beater do nothing for 3 turns doesn't bode well against neither control nor aggro.
I also feel like you want more Lotleth Troll in this deck, as it sort of acts like your Zenith Flare - you can focus on doing what you gotta do, trade away creatures without much care and then BAM a giant zombie to the knee. Artisan does help finding it, but I don't think two copies is too farfetched.
How about Cavalier of Thorns?
After the companion rule change, I think you can safely get rid of Umori, the Collector without losing too much.

I think that Charnel Troll would be a great payoff that suites the theme for this deck.
I also think that including a couple Clackbridge Troll may give you the mid to late card draw or damage to push through.

There are a lot of ways to give deathtouch with relatively few payoffs. I would be worried about drawing multiples of those. Utility creatures that happen to have first strike or high toughness like Nekrataal could be handy. Alternatively, you could cut some deathtouch cards for cards like Acorn Catapult and Clackbridge Troll that give your opponents 1 toughness creatures.

Hey, nice budget version.
Gift of Doom for it's morph cost is good deathtouch/protection for Kelsien. Open the Armory is a budget tutor to get Gift or a deathtouch equipment. Double strike is very good in combination with deathtouch. This combo of attacking abilities with Kelsien makes him basically unblockable in combat and take advantage of his high power to do a lot of Commander damage.
Mask of Memory is good repeatable draw especially with double strike triggering it's combat damage ability twice. With as much pinging as you have here then consider adding cards that give your opponents creatures? Once Kelsien has deathtouch then it will be difficult for your opponents to keep creatures or even want to play creatures, but you want your opponents to have creatures so you can keep getting experience counters and growing Kelsien.
- Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor
- Goblin Spymaster
- Alliance of Arms
- Benevolent Offering
- Generous Gift
- Clackbridge Troll
General's Enforcer has good interaction with Kelsien giving him indestructible and then his ability can exile creatures you kill with Kelsien. There's other creatures in Mardu colors who can benefit from experience counters who are worth adding.
Good luck with your deck.

Board wipes that seem "on theme" and white "ramp" to consider. Kaya's Wrath Fumigate Retaliate Austere Command Decree of Pain Martial Coup Merciless Eviction Descent of Dragons Angel of the Dire Hour Magister of Worth Sunblast Angel Boreas Charger Oreskos Explorer Surveyor's Scope Solemn Simulacrum Sword of the Animist Verge Rangers Smothering Tithe Sword of Feast and Famine Dowsing Dagger Flip
Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!
You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen
