i dont think you can friend others in this site.

since is a mono black you would want to add a set of Dark Ritual for ramp and be able to play something like Geralf's Messenger / Ammit Eternal turn 1 or turn 2 Phyrexian Obliterator / Abyssal Persecutor / Desecration Demon .

you should add a set of discards spells like Duress / Thoughtseize / Hymn to Tourach its a really nice turn 2 play, for draw spell either Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper are good.

for board wipes Toxic Deluge or Damnation 1-2 is okay plus the Doom Blade / Fatal Push and maybe Chainer's Edict / Geth's Verdict .

i will add to the suggested cards the budget ones.

Psicraft, thank you! Great to hear my deck provided some inspiration for your version. Currently re-thinking/building the deck. Adding more explosive sacrifice fodder for more Zombie waves, for example Phyrexian Soulgorger , for just mana, you gain 8 2/2 Zombie Tokens. With Mimic Vat out, you can do that every turn. Another great card for the same purposes as previous mentioned is Waning Wurm or Desecration Demon , fairly cheap to cast and gives lots of Zombies.

Kessig Cagebreakers is another way to make creatures from a full graveyard.

Pitiless Plunderer makes you some treasure for those creatures you are sacrificing.

Poison-Tip Archer is another Blood Artist style creature

With all the creatures you have that will just die to sac outlets, you may consider Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos

The weaker cards in your deck appear to be:

Bloodmist Infiltrator you can find better, and repeatable sac abilities ** Viscera Seer

Desecration Demon from my experience, when an opponent gets to choose they always choose the option you didn't want them to take.

Orzhov Racketeers discard doesn't really seem like a thing this deck is doing and the creature has a high cmc for this effect ** Hypnotic Specter

Silhana Wayfinder LOTS of better ways to search; especially in black.

Vicious Conquistador probably just going to make everyone at the table annoyed early and a really bad card late.

Hope this helps with your build. You have some good synergy here. There are better versions of some cards you are playing, but you seem like you have a solid base.

I'd cut: Griselbrand (banned :P), Soulcage Fiend , The Scorpion God , Stronghold Overseer , Hazoret's Monument , Revel in Riches

I'd recommend adding more lands and lower cost creatures, and switching mana rocks to use more that cost 2 instead of 3 like Talisman of Indulgence or Mind Stone

Lower cost Demons, Devils and Imps: Ammit Eternal , Cadaver Imp , Desecration Demon , Herald of Torment , Sin Prodder , Soot Imp , Spawn of Mayhem , Torch Fiend

ArchFline: I appreciate the tech! I’m not huge on Sundial of the Infinite mostly on account of having to end my turn just to save Chainer’s pets from exile. I have enough sac effects to ensure they’ll be okay in the long run.

Which leads me to...

dritchie: digging a lot of the suggestions. I used to run Disciple of Bolas but don’t anymore because if it’s my only critter (say, early game), it’s a dud. Geth, Lord of the Vault would be nice if I was relying on opposing graves (I aim to be a very self-sufficient Chainer deck due to various meta reasons) — same with Sepulchral Primordial and Rise of the Dark Realms, to a lesser degree. I don’t really want to play Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath mostly because, Daretti, Scrap Savant (in my Norin the Wary deck) and Teferi, Temporal Archmage (in my Aminatou, the Fateshifter build) aside, I don’t tend to like playing commander walkers in the 99. Desecration Demon gives opponents a choice to stop the thing which slows the game plan if abided. My opponent’s don’t tend to have a shortage of blockers or things worth sacking (yet not worth reanimating, oddly enough).

HOWEVER: I like It That Betrays as a consideration (and can do it in paper right now!), so I may take that into consideration soon.

Therefore, I am wondering what to cut for the following cards though (in order of priority): It That Betrays (since I own one already), Exsanguinate, and Contamination (these last two are lower priority because I don’t have them yet... truthfully I’d prefer Contamination before Exsanguinate but the latter is cheaper lol). Any ideas?
