At the beginning of each combat, any opponent may sacrifice a creature. If a player does, tap Desecration Demon and put a +1/+1 counter on it.

Sweet. I'm a big fan of Undying as well. For a finisher like what you describe, there's Mortician Beetle . He's not all that great, but he does get bigger on every sac. Unfortunately he won't trigger from Putrefy , Tragic Slip , or Retribution of the Ancients . I actually ran a deck around the Beetle (before Undying was around) and a lot of my removal was stuff like Bone Splinters , Geth's Verdict , Consuming Vapors , Gatekeeper of Malakir , you know anything that says sacrifice. I don't recommend you go that route, as you will have to end up committing to the Beetle too much, which is a bad idea. Instead as a finisher I really like Phyrexian Obliterator , but he may be too black heavy when your color split is almost even. I do like the Desecration Demon suggestion, he's always good. Too bad Undying doesn't stack, because Mikaeus, the Unhallowed would be really funny if it did. He still would be a good finisher for you though since he does give that global buff and he's evasive. He also kills Knight of the Reliquary if it swings at you, which is nice.
Thanks Darnok what i seem to be focusing on when i was playing this deck with the current modifications is working alot with the Rakshasa Deathdealer s utilizing both the pay one of each for the +2 counters and the regenerate feature. However the Predator Ooze s have been also very usefull...i guess i dont know because the Desecration Demon s have really been my main damage dealers and are my main threats due to their character effects...really my deck has been used more as a control the field with black and (-) counters...and beat down gradually with my green creatures and the (+X) counters and creature effect spells.
it seems like Geralf's Messenger would fit very nicely here, and I found that Altar's Reap worked very well alongside Undying to provide some decent card advantage. I also like Treasured Find for its obvious advantages. I would take out the Grim Backwoods in favour of some GB duals of some sort, Woodland Cemetery works quite well, as do Overgrown Tomb s if you can acquire either. My suggestion for a finisher, though he doesn't exactly fit the theme, would be Desecration Demon he is either swinging for 6 as soon as he's able or he slowly clears their board until he starts swinging for some larger number. Putrefy and/or Abrupt Decay are great GB removal spells as well if you ever find you are looking for more. Nice job, +1 from me.
The main thing I would say about your deckbuilding in general (at least from using just this as an example) is that you need to come up with a goal or general idea for your deck then build to support that goal or idea. When building the GB deck I posted previously I knew I wanted to take advantage of "undying" and I also wanted to push Thragtusk to his limits. I found the cards I needed for the core, those being: Blood Artist , Young Wolf , Strangleroot Geist , Geralf's Messenger , Thragtusk and Conjurer's Closet the rest of the deck, the Desecration Demon s, Altar's Reap s, Abrupt Decay s, Putrefy s and Treasured Find s, were cards I looked for when I said to myself "okay, once I get this stuff on the field, how do I keep it there?" and "how will I deal with X (planeswalkers, artifacts, etc.) that my opponent is using to stall me out or kill me?".
Once I knew my goal it was easy to find supportive cards to smooth it out (admittedly it wasn't cheap, at one time the deck was worth over $350 at one point, luckily I trade for most of what I needed). Well I how this helped. Good luck, have fun and DFTBA.
Deathrite Shaman and Reaper of the Wilds would be a couple suggestions I have, along with Abrupt Decay if you can get your hands on some. I know the shaman and abrupt decay are a little pricier, but the reaper is only about 75 cents. I like the look though, +1 from me.
Here is a GB deck that I did quite well with when it was standard legal and I've kept it together because I feel it could compete in modern. The main wincon is the + combo, followed by + and then the Desecration Demon is there to just cause problems.
GB can be very fun and fast as an aggro deck. Good luck
Bought twelve Desecration Demon for a buck a piece. 108 dollar profit. I was happy.
I think we tied on that overall in terms of value
