True, Bloodghast would probably benefit my deck, but I was originally running this deck with 4x Tormented Soul and it became a pain to not be able to block anything. I already have Nether Traitor so I don't think I want to drop 65 bucks on Bloodghast's.

I forgot to add them but Smallpox and Altar's Reap/Costly Plunder were in the first iteration of this deck but I moved them to the sideboard.

Devour Flesh didn't make it into the deck but it was definitely an honorable mention.

As for Voldaren Pariah  Flip, I love her. She is brutal and will trigger both sides of my deck mechanic for sure, but I am going to save her for the Grixis commander deck that I am building. That deck has the recipe for some fun and brutal combos. It started as the Mindseize Commander deck but I'm making Thraximundar my Commander and Nekusar, the Mindrazer his Lieutenant. Draw, discard, madness, sacrifice, flashback/other play from graveyard effects. It should be one hell of a deck.

I've made decks like this before and I must say that Bloodghast is pretty much a must have in them. I'm also a big fan of Plunge into Darkness, Smallpox Altar's Reap, and/or Devour Flesh in this kind of deck. Plunge into Darkness kinda fills both roles of Altar's Reap and Devour Flesh by itself, but they have their own advantages and disadvantages (no life loss with Reap, can target opponent with Devour Flesh as well as yourself, etc).

I've also been playing with using Voldaren Pariah  Flip for this kind of strategy but she can be a little tough to build around since she rewards self discard as well (cuz of Madness).

What about Big Game Hunter, Gatekeeper of Malakir, To the Slaughter, Devour Flesh (SUPER spicy vs Death's Shadow), Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder ??

And if you're willing to go slightly over budget, there are some shenanigans you could do with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Forbidden Orchard or Illness in the Ranks.

Toshi is a dude I have ALWAYS wanted to make work somehow, as this super corner case, pseudo-Snapcaster effect.

Might be worth it to play Cabal Ritual, Unearth, Duress, and/or Altar's Reap/Costly Plunder for card draw or Devour Flesh for life and avoiding Echoing Truth issues. I've also seen the suggestion of Peat Bog which is great for the mono-color of this deck but it could be almost as good to just play a bounce land so that you don't lose it after two uses and splash a color with the slight disadvantage that it might be harder [but not much harder] to ensure you always have those two blacks for rats or gary.

I'm thinking of splashing in white. Having Shambling Vent as another permanent to activate the Demonic Rising and Homicidal Seclusion enchantments. Maybe subbing in Path to Exile instead of the Devour Flesh.

What do ya'll think?

Aftertherevolution,
I've always been a fan off Assault Formation, and this looks seriously fun.

A few thoughts:

Good luck (and good skill) with the brew! And draw well!

-Birds of Paradise is legal in the Brew-Off. It's the best mana dork, no contest. I don't like Arbor Elf that much, as he's not always active. Given your wealth of mana dorks, Gavony Township might give you extra late game.

-Lingering Souls with your self mill is great. It stalls aggresssive decks and gives midrange decks fits. Control can deal with it a bit easier, but it's still card advantage. Did I mention those Gavony Townships?

-Sever the Bloodline is okay, but I'm not sure you want to be wasting a removal slot for it. That's just something that will be borne out in testing, and it's great at answering a lot of popular threats. Abrupt Decay, Putrefy, Hero's Downfall, Devour Flesh... so many options.

-If you need a discard outlet, instead of going for the rickety 4C plan, you could play Liliana of the Veil. She lets you bin cards, gains card advantage with the help of flashback spells, and stops Geist of Saint Traft/Thrun, the Last Troll.

-Fiend Hunter is similarly not exciting to me. This format has a lot of efficient removal, so all he does in a lot of games is give your opponent an extra ETB trigger and some tempo.

-Blood Baron of Vizkopa is amazing. Lifelink helps you stabilize against aggro, and it has protection from so many of the format's best spells. I remember your reaction to Stormbreath Dragon (and my reactions to losing to it a lot), and Blood Baron is the WB equivalent.
