Contaminated Bond Discussion

I feel like there is a lot more interesting things you could do with this deck.
There are a lot of forced combat cards out there that can make sure players are tappedout when she goes to swing: Avatar of Slaughter, Grand Melee, War's Toll, Goblin Diplomats, Total War, Warmonger Hellkite, and Invasion Plans.
There are also some cool enchantments that can help drain her controller or boost your life without mana: Visions of Brutality, Vampiric Link, Contaminated Bond, and Treacherous Link.
Temur Battle Rage, Psychotic Fury, and Uncaged Fury can boost commander damage or save her from death when she's facing another 5/5 blocker.
This one might be over budget, but Crawlspace can really help make sure you don't get hit with every other attacking creature on the board.

I like Ragged Veins over Contaminated Bond for this deck. You're going to have a lot of high power creatures with low toughness so Contaminated Bond will trigger for 3. As long as your creature's power is higher than 3 Ragged Veins will have more impact. The downside with Ragged Veins is that first strike can mean no damage if your toughness is not high enough. The split covers you in both situations so hopefully you get the card you need in the right situation?

It might feel like it's contributing more to your gameplan, but there's really no reason to play Contaminated Bond over Pacifism. If your opponent can justify attacking or blocking in exchange for losing three life, he will - Pacifism doesn't even give him that choice.
If you want a card that does both, look no further than Pillory of the Sleepless! It locks a creature down and slowly drains your opponent's life.
On that note, Predator's Gambit is also a straight upgrade over Unholy Strength. You never know when it might come up!

Here are some ideas for the defensive options you mentioned:
For this type of deck, Exsanguinate can be another good aggressive card / finisher.
There are a couple cards that I would consider removing:

I'm guessing a theme deck is probably going to be a little casual. Just brainstorming here...

Sagarys well one card I really like in black is Blood Reckoning then there are cards like Nettlevine Blight or the cheap version of that: Brink of Disaster to slow your opponent/destroy their resources or play stuff like Contaminated Bond to stop small creatures early on...
Hope that helps a bit

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.
To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).
Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.
