Dictate of Erebos is still a game effect requiring you to fulfil it (sacrificing a creature). You can't sacrifice a creature to both that requirement and a different one (cost of Culling Dais). Raging_Squiggle's vending machine analogy is an excellent example.

If a card like Dictate of Erebos or Gatekeeper of Malakir states player must sacrifice a creature, can that be fulfilled if I sacrifice a creature to pay a cost such as from Attrition Fling or Culling Dais ?

Sweet deck love the idea of keep or kill! Very impressed with the budget too! Jalira, Master Polymorphist seems like too much value for you to pass up and within budget I think. Primal Growth also seems like a good fit. Quest for Pure Flame although not a perfect fit double and sometimes quad dammage is always fun espescialy when your hitting your opponent with their creature who is twice as strong when on your side... seems like a dramatic betrayal. Temur Ascendancy also feels like a must have for this one! Life's Legacy or Momentous Fall also seem like good includes instead of the brainstorm or Temur Runemark .
I'm sure you can get a copy of Mimic Vat for 50 cents and it would be adding insult to injury having your opponents creature come back turn after turn to beat them up.

And Culling Dais is deeply medium. There are better options, and you should be fine, as most of your wizards draw you cards.

Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker , Oketra the True , Bontu the Glorified , Lingering Souls are other cards that come to mind. Dread Return , Phyrexian Delver and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord stand out to me as superior choices to Hell's Caretaker and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . Buried Alive is a strong reanimator support card. You probably could utilize the Karmic Guide + Reveillark combo. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Carrion Feeder , Viscera Seer , Killing Wave , Culling Dais , Vampiric Rites , Fanatical Devotion and Martyr's Cause are great ways to kill of your own creatures. Butcher of Malakir and Martyr's Bond would work great in this deck.

I really like this one. I am building something similar but I'm trying to squeeze in the Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity combo. Looking at your list could use a couple more of Eladamri's Call or Melira, Sylvok Outcast to get the combo online a bit faster. Altar of Dementia seems to be your only sac outlet so I'd run a full playset. Perhaps splash a bit black and run Viscera Seer or run Culling Dais . And since we are milling them why not add a copy of Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger into the mix?

I understand. Many people think overrun effects are cheese, though I disagree (since they require the combination of multiple creatures, and cards like Torment of Hailfire require nothing but mana).
Drain effects are hard to pull off, and if you want to gear your deck towards them, you will find that your wincon of pinging opponents to death will revolve around a bunch of cheap token creatures. Zulaport Cutthroat , Blood Artist , and Poison-Tip Archer offer you your road to victory if you can reliably sacrifice the tokens from Hornet Queen , Avenger of Zendikar , Deep Forest Hermit , and Tendershoot Dryad , just to name a few of my favorite army-in-a-can creatures.
