maybe some inexpensive black cards to try Sanguine Bond with Blood Tribute for extra points throw in Aetherflux Reservoir. as for death triggers and graveyard shenanigans Endless Obedience, along withWight of Precinct Sixand Grimoire of the Dead . for tokens can't beat Army of the Damned with Ayara, First of Lochthwain this can be deadly. you might wanna throw in a tutor or two Diabolic Tutor + Mastermind's Acquisition...last thoughts Bontu's Monument Throne of the God-Pharaoh...any way hope that helps ..happy shopping

Love the deck theme idea! Just want to say you have it listed that you have two copies of Selective Snare.

I'm going to say right off the bat that Meteorite, Diabolic Tutor, Bridge from Below, Laboratory Maniac don't belong in your deck because they are just bad cards. Although Laboratory Maniac is a fun alternative win condition, your deck simply doesn't have the mill power to achieve this and even if you did you have a greater chance of milling that him; because he's odd cost you can't use your commander to bring him back.

I am confused as to why you're discarding for graveyard strength when the only thing that benefits from having things in your graveyard is Apocalypse Demon. I want to point out that your commander Gyruda, Doom of Depths ability can only return a creature card of even mana cost from the four cards that everyone milled. So you won't be able to return anything that's already in your graveyard.

One other point I want to make is that taking the top four card from your library and things like taking putting the top card of your library {example: Deranged Assistant }into your graveyard don't count as drawing cards so Oneirophage and Chasm Skulker won't trigger.

Lastly after play testing your deck a couple times the biggest weakness this deck has is the fact that your commander is 6 mana below I'll suggest some budget mana rocks, because the faster you have you commander online the faster your deck and do kraken things ^-^ but all of these mana rocks will be better than Meteorite which is very bad.

Good Luck on your deck! Hope that was helpful!

Hey, here's my less than $200 version of Krrik, Devotion to Yawgmoth (Budget).

My advice on a budget is load up on black tutors that can get Bolas's Citadel, Aetherflux Reservoir and Pontiff of Blight. Even four/five mana tutors are good since with Krrik they're only two/three mana and 4 life or only all life.

Necropotence is a much better expensive price card than Exquisite Blood. Necro combos with Citadel + Aetherflux and this combo is excellent with Krrik. With Krrik Pontiff of Blight's extort does what Exquisite + Bond combo does and Pontiff is easier to assemble as well as budget.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Viscera Seer + Phyrexian Reclamation is a budget combo to repeat drain your opponents with Gray.

Getting Krrik onto the battlefield with four mana is pretty important and more colorless mana sources can help especially two drop mana rocks.

Good luck with your deck.

Hammer of Nazahn and Idyllic Tutor seem like good adds here. And probably swap Scheming Symmetry with something like Diabolic Tutor? one more but you arent helping your opponents find combo peices...

Gidgetimer on Lithoform Enginge: Not Broken, Definitely …

Back on topic, I feel that you may be missing an opportunity with saying it doesn't go into Chainer, Nightmare Adept. Without knowing how your decks are built I'd say it would want one more than Roon for sure.

I'm still a bit taken aback by what I see as "average farting around level" is an 8 on these power scales. Now that I look at it more it isn't even that what I play fits neatly into an 8. It is more building philosophy of 8, card choices of 6, seriousness of 4. This is why I don't like these scales. They leave no room for the guy Diabolic Tutoring for a Dismal Backwater to set off Blood/Bond. Whatever level people consider that to be, I still don't think that Lithoform Engine will see much play at or above.

Grind, Thrashing Wumpus and Crypt Rats were an auto include, I had no idea that this card even existed so thank you for the idea! And I do like Liliana Vess She does bring a lot of hate but if I can get 2 searches out of her then I feel she is very well worth it and has turned games around for me, and at the worst you are right she is just a worse Diabolic Tutor. I have Oblivion Strike in because my play group likes to play eldrazi at times and it is the one spell I can hit ulamog, the ceasless hunger with. And I chose to run Baneful Omen because another player in the group likes to pillow fort with Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Archetype of Endurance and it gives me a way to deal some damage even though I can’t swing through, it also is kind of like a time bomb if played kind of early like turn 4 or 5 with Dark Ritual if it isn’t dealt with. I also cut 1 land for Bubbling Muck, that may not have been the smartest decision over taking out dark ritual but, it has been working wonderfully. I also added Imp's Mischief to the deck. Thank you again for all of your ideas!!

I'm wondering what your budget is and how casual/competitive you're wanting this deck to be. We could make a few big additions with Exquisite Blood for general utility and it's infinite loop when coupled with Sanguine Bond. There's also of course Demonic Tutor as a strict upgrade to Diabolic Tutor. There's also the more budget (but still kinda pricey) alternative Grim Tutor whose downside doesn't really matter in your deck and has the tiniest bit synergy with exactly 1 card in your deck lol. Jet Medallion and Wayfarer's Bauble offer good sources of ramp that you could use to replace cards like Palladium Myr and Nyx Lotus(I know, I know, but hear me out. It costs 4 mana to cast AND comes in tapped AND you aren't even guaranteed to get value out of it. It all depends on whether or not you're having a good game. You could play this turn 4, not get to use it til turn 5 since it's tapped, AND still maybe only get 1 or 2 mana out of it. Oh, and because of its high cost it's going to be a juicy target for removal. If it gets blown up you basically just skipped a turn). Also, this is by no means a budget option but if you can swing it Extraplanar Lens with Snow Lands is killer in mono decks assuming others aren't also running snows. Once I know your budget and how competitive you want this to be I can definitely try to help you out some more. :^)
