Hey, thanks for your comment!
I also considered Dash Hopes, as I really love 'painful choice' cards in the style of Temporal Extortion and Curse of the Cabal. I think it is fine as a casual choice, but it has some issues. It could be OK in game 1 if the opponent doesn't understand the deck yet, but from then on it will be a counterspell if I need a quick clock and a burn spell if I need to save the team from Wrath of God. I could chooice not to play 2 1CMC creatures on turn 2 and hold up Dash Hopes only to find the opponent not playing anything significant on his turn, so I just wasted 4 power on board and I have no Instants to salvage the lost mana. Cards like Dash Hopes always look great on paper, but they never really play out the way one initially planned. That said, I'm not dismissing it entirely, might have to test it out a bit to come to a clear conclusion.

Curse of the Cabal is hilarious, especially if you can hard cast it.

it actually looks great Circle of Affliction is pretty awesome I'm not sure what you would take out to sub it for, plus you'd need something like Skybind to bounce it around. Dictate of Erebos seems a little out of place since this isn't sack mill in any way, even though it is a great way to keep people from hating on you too much Exquisite Blood Sanguine Bond in conjunction with Tainted Remedy is pretty broken, seems like a good fit. there's a lot of destroy target creature cards, maybe try to exile a little more, maybe even put in a Deicide because god cards are pretty prevalent. because it gets around indestructible effects cards like, Curse of the Cabal or even better Utter End I like the deck the way it is in many respects so nice job either way! :)

Alright here is a ton of cards that seems to fit the theme. Some are definitely better then others I'm just giving a list of cards. Some of these cards are not budget
Hope you find something useful within all these!

I've tried to write an essay for the advice I have for this deck three times already. I'm on an old tablet that can't handle many things, so I've given up. I'm hoping you can guess my reasoning through card suggestion only.
Desecration Elemental, Hissing Iguanar, Jund Battlemage, Mogg War Marshal, Rot Shambler or Scavenger Drake, Claws of Gix, Bone Splinters, Curse of the Cabal or Grave Pact, Dragon Fodder, Fallen Ideal, Fists of Ironwood, and From Beyond UNLESS you decide to add an eldrazi with annihilator.

Rest in Peace will exile itself and all other permanents being sacrificed because they are all leaving play at the same time. However, Curse of the Cabal will end up in its owner's graveyard because it has to completely resolve first, which would put it going to the grave after everything has already been sacrificed. Hope this helped!

Xynarth - As to Rishkar's Expertise and Curse of the Cabal, both of these are already in the list. Beast Within may be a solid replacement for Vraska the Unseen. It's nice if I can hit more than one thing with Vraska, but otherwise Beast Within is better. Pox is very good, may end up finding a spot in here. Barter in Blood and Innocent Blood and other similar effects may be decent, but the list is a very tight ship and it's hard to know what to remove. I like having some of the targeted removal even though it doesn't synergize as well because with a sacrifice effect I am not usually going to hit what I want to. Mortician Beetle could be a solid include, I will definitely look into finding him a slot. Vulturous Zombie is less good because it doesn't do anything when I am sacrificing things without Grave Pact type effects. Scavenger Drake is hurt by the fact that it starts as a 1/1 for 4. Avatar of the Resolute does profit off of other things being bigger, but otherwise is just a big dude that does not then further the game plan, so I am not sure if he is good enough to find a spot. Kalonian Hydra, however, may also find a spot because doubling my counters could get absolutely ridiculous. Finally, we have Lumberknot which again is hurt by the fact that it is a 1/1 for 4. It does have hexproof, which is nice, but more often than not I am afraid of boardwipes which hexproof does not stop. Some sweet cards to think about though, I will definitely see if any of them deserve a spot in here. Thanks for the feedback, and if you do make that Mazirek list post it and I'd be happy to take a look at it.
