I absolutely love the deck. After seeing this I am now determined to make my own variation including some of the following suggestions. Btw this is so long because its also a note to myself.

Why the top and single Terminus, I don't entirely understand why that is good for you. Then I assume you living wish for the Parasitic Strix to get the infinite loop, why not just main board it as well?. I am also used to seeing some sort of card draw creature like Baleful Strix, or Wall of Blossoms. When I played Aluren I always played something like Corrupt Court Official to rip apart their hand, or Rishadan Cutpurse to blow up all of their stuff, all though in fairness I think I was playing like Timid Drake and soul warden to keep from dying in the process but times have changed I guess. Anyway good luck

Phyrexian Plaguelord is not nearly as recurrable -- but is a great removal engine once you have effectively almost won the game. It also costs 5. It's only really comparable because it self sacrifices (with some effort). Even then, disruption forces you to put your resources into saving the plaguelord, whereas you could be using those sacrificed creatures for other things.

Nezumi Bone-Reader is not comparable -- and I don't run it -- rather, I run creatures that force discard on every turn, but that need to die or enter the battlefield to do so -- Disciple of Phenax, Mesmeric Fiend, Black Cat, Noxious Toad, Corrupt Court Official. This is 2-4 times more triggers compared to sorcery speed. That's not even to mention that you need a ton of Black mana to use Nezumi, which isn't viable at all under resource denial. Run Sadistic Hypnotist before him. It's not nothing, it's an engine piece that is redundant with Viscera Seer, hard to remove, and cheap to play. It's not vital and doesn't need to be -- quintessential INUS condition for establishing an insurmountable board state. The faster you can get rolling, the better (and more redundant pieces = faster).

You could do the same thing on non-active turns with corpse blockade (one of the few free creature sac outlets). The only distinct disadvantage is that is costs 1 more, and the only distinct advantage is that you have a deathtouch blocker on non-active turns. The cost is a big deal for me, since my games are necessarily heavy in resource denial tactics. The blocking is less important for me because I both have plenty of ways to kill creatures and rarely face aggro or voltron strategies that are not well controlled with resource denial. I guess it's a matter of preference here, but for me, it's the active turn that makes the difference. So, you get to sacrifice all your creatures on every turn that is not yours and thus sweep away possible blockers with Attrition, Grave Pact, Big Game Hunter, Bone Shredder, and Abyssal Gatekeeper, amongst other means. Now, at least one of your opponents has an empty board and you have 5 - 10 creatures to sacrifice (or more) -- all of which you can pump into vampire (for real this time) and attack for 10 - 20 damage. This is a clean finisher for grinding games (i.e. my games). In order to blow up the vampire, they would have had to hold onto removal that would otherwise have been directed at some far more threatening card.
