Decree of Pain Discussion

Nice start, if you want more fun and games, try putting in some mass-removal like Damnation, Decree of Pain, Crux of Fate, and stuff like that. Also, if you want even more slowing-stuff, take out the land-removal and put in some more Stax cards like Smokestack, Tangle Wire, Omen Machine, Possessed Portal, and stuff. As far as spot removal, I'd advise putting in some stuff like Innocent Blood, Dismember, Geth's Verdict, Unlicensed Disintegration, Profane Command, Torment of Hailfire, Doomsday, Infernal Tribute, Kolaghan's Command, Necropotence, Tainted AEther, Void, Charmbreaker Devils, and you see I gave up on whatever I was saying and just started listing good cards. Anyway, good luck. You might want more creatures.

Athreos, God of Passage is mostly focused on enter the battlefield effects that create a ton of value. Life gain could work as a utility mechanism but I wouldn't rely on Felidar Sovereign as a win-con with Atrheos. Your commander is best at grinding and taxing.
Your deck could use some sac outlets to activate Athreos's ability.
- Ashnod's Altar
- Phyrexian Altar
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Teysa, Orzov Scion
- Sidisi, Undead Vizier
- Merciless Executioner
Furthermore you need some much needed mana rocks to be consistent with your game-plan.
And last of some cards that I really like within an Athreos build;
- Necropotence, combine it with Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel for card advantage or just fill up your graveyard and reanimate it with Living Death
- Ashen Rider
- Karmic Guide
- Harvester of Souls/Grim Haruspex
- Reaper from the Abyss
- Grand Abolisher
I hope there are some cards within this list that fit your build!

The Idea with this list is to cut things that serve only one purpose, or do the same thing but worse. Also to make it even you could cut an even number of things from each of the categories.

ZendikariWol, I had planned to use Ashnod's Altar but i think i may need a few wheel cards to add to the discard. Thanks for the info, I had not thought about that part enough. I had also planned for Blasphemous Act , Decree of Pain and Languish to remove board states then rebuild quickly with my large mana base.

nwogaming, I'd be happy to take a look at your deck! Here are some cards that you may not have thought of yet! These suggestions are with a mill strategy game plan in mind since I assume that's what you are trying to do.
Leyline of the Void+Grindstone. Leyline doesn't synergize well with the commander but is an instant mill-kill with Grindstone and is graveyard hate for decks that play Eldrazi or have graveyard synergies.
Cards I'm not terribly big on
All of the Spectors
Wight of Precinct Six
Out of the 14 cards that are missing to make this a legal commander deck I would see to it that 8 are lands as 36 is typically where you want to be as a baseline.
I hope this give you a bit more to brew with!

Your "fun combo" does little, in my opinion, because Prized Amalgam is not impactful at all. If you add Phyrexian Altar to this mix you now can generate infinite mana which is impactful depending on how you utilize it.
Vengeful Pharaoh is a good rattlesnake card to have in the yard.
G&G screams to me to use ETB zombies and sacrifice outlets since they allow you to re-cast zombies from the yard. Gray Merchant of Asphodel is the quintessential example. Cast it late game to drain, sack, then cast again for hopefully GG. I'd trim cards like Soulless One who are only decent late game with Wonder in the yard.
I love Stitcher Geralf but he is super slow and anti-synergistic here because he exiles while G&G wants to re-cast.
Is this budget? I would add in better board wipes like Damnation and Decree of Pain; more card draw outlets Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study; more ramp Fellwar Stone and Mind Stone; utility counters like Arcane Denial and Dream Fracture to deny and draw; and trim your high CMC spells to only those that would win you the game on the spot (ex. of not doing this is Army of the Damned which is flavorful but slow).
Hope something helps!
