It might be nice to have stuff like Dictate of Erebos, Butcher of Malakir and/or Grave Pact to further punish your opponents for destroying your creatures

Twilight Drover goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar, I think?

Mentor of the Meek is really good.

Viscera Seer is good for deck cycling.

Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are soft locks in this deck.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose MIGHT be a better commander. Whilst she costs more mana, she comes online a bit quicker, potentially.

Karmic Guide, Reveillark and Blasting Station is an instant win. Both creatures are good enough to include on their own because value, but they can also just single-handedly win games. They create sacrifice-recursion loops where you can sacrifice them then one reanimates the other and then you rinse and repeat.

Sun Titan isn't optional. It just wins games.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are good token producers. So is Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

Fleshbag Marauder is pretty great. You can just keep playing it and renimating it for some soft locks. Particularly with cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One.

Unburial Rites is great because you cast it twice. So is Lingering Souls.

Buried Alive is a really good tutor-thats-not-a-tutor kind of thing.

Victimize is just value.

Nim Deathmantle protects everything from death.

You can play Smokestack in decks like this if you want to be a dick.

Cathars' Crusade is a great win condition. Combined with like Lingering Souls it's just insane.

Attrition is just borderline unfair.

That's about all I can think of.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Arcbound Worker

Night of Souls' Betrayal

Dictate of Erebos

Please tag the cards in question.

Meren's ability triggers when you move from Main Phase 2 to End Step. Arcbound Worker will return to the field on resolution of her ability, and then will die as a state-based action as you receive priority. After the Dictate of Erebos and Modular triggers resolve, you get priority, allowing you to activate abilities/cast instants before moving from End Phase to Cleanup step and passing turn. There is no reason for Meren's ability to trigger again, since the trigger window has passed from the first time it triggered.

Note: This deck still needs Dictate of Erebos and some mana tweaking for more optimizations.

I could add in Nim Deathmantle but seems a bit over the top for now.

whats up with the no Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos

You currently have 10 cards to cut. Here's a few I would consider ditching:

  1. Paradox Engine is a fantastic card, but you don't need it. Unless it is used to go infinite, you generally have better things to do with 5 mana, even if it does help ramp on the next turn.

  2. Catacomb Sifter - you have lots of ramp, you don't need this.

  3. Woodfall Primus - way too much mana for its effect, even with persist. Does not fit in well with your primary gameplan, and cannot be used to clear potential blockers.

  4. Puppeteer Clique - cool card, doesn't do much for your deck.

  5. Meren of Clan Nel Toth - you don't have enough good ways to really abuse this, and her use as a non-commander is pretty limited.

  6. Dictate of Erebos - another strong card that doesn't need to be in this deck.

  7. Living Death - you don't need this, and you have enough removal that you'll be just as likely to return the large threat you previously killed.

Tawnos's Wand might be worth adding.

You should also switch Mask of Avacyn for Lightning Greaves--the ability to protect your commander the turn it is played is well worth the reduction in power/toughness.

Ashnod's Altar is great because you can make faeries from the mill then use the faeries to mill more and repeat. Also if you have Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos out then you get to board wipe at the same time.

Mick-Tis You can also use Keen Sense and Snake Umbra on Slimefoot, the Stowaway to draw 6 cards per sap that dies [in a 4 player game]. I'd remove Fecundity if you're running Dictate of Erebos, no need to give your opponents a card for sacrificing a card.
