Guys, I think he wants to sac those creatures to other effects, since he said no self-sacrificing creatures, so Thrulls are just spinning wheels. Unfortunately, the effect OP is looking for is pretty unusual, as evidenced by Su-Chi 's $50 price tag (screw the Reserved List). The best you're going to do outside the original examples is treasure and scion makers like Dire Fleet Hoarder , Gleaming Barrier , Pitiless Plunderer , and Carrier Thrall . That's why most people choose to make tokens and sac them for mana through an intermediary like Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , etc. get the mana through death-matters triggers on cards like Black Market and Pitiless Plunderer .

I propably would cut: Dire Fleet Hoarder : It makes just 2 mana if Teysa is on the field. Knight of the Last Breath : The CMC is really high and I don't know if this card is worth it. Necrotic Ooze : It does not synergize very well with your deck. But this is probably a meta include if your playgroup plays a lot of creatures with acitivated abilities it may be worth it.

Solo-ras In Grixis ramp is hard to come by, look at Brazen Freebooter, Sailor of Means & Dire Fleet Hoarder as ramp, a small investment letting one play more another turn. In fact I am going to test adding treasure ramp to my The Locust God deck because it has a slight issue ramping up to him reliably.

cute. i like sack decks like this. i used to run a infinite combo deck with Ruthless Knave and Anointed Procession, with fodder like Dire Fleet Hoarder, Gleaming Barrier, Martyr of Dusk Start / Finish, Never / Return, Memorial to Glory and Rite of Belzenlok, of course with Pitiless Plunderer as support. It would go into an infinite loop of playing creatures, sacking them for 1000 000 treasures and drawing your entire deck. at the end of your turn youd have like 100 creatures and 100-200 treasures, which you would then use on stuff like Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Marionette Master and Torment of Hailfire. Since you have all your win-cons in your hand, you can play all 3...you can play all your copies of all 3. Real flashy like only sack decks can do hehe. The best part of it was the entire deck cost me 5 tix, sideboard included cause it consisted of all the cards no one ever plays. I feel like sack decks dont get enough love tbh, so good job at making one!

Something else you could add would be Pitiless Plunderer so when something dies it gives you treasure.

You've made a good point, and I'm adding Gateway tomorrow. The Compass was added since I've had three games so far where I've been stuck on 2-3 lands, but I've upped the count to 24 and Gateway will help cycle unneeded lands. If the 24th land seems unnecessary, I'll cut it again.
I think Gifted Aetherborn would be an excellent addition; however, Weaponcraft Enthusiast is an optimal card for the deck in my opinion. 3 mana for three bodies to chump block or toss to Razaketh makes for a prime deck slot, especially since there isn't a more efficient way to tutor for pieces available in Mono-Black.
That being said, Aetherborn is too good of a card to pass up. I would suggest replacing Dread Wanderer if you haven't already (I intended to have him for recurring tutors but his slow ability is not optimal for this deck), any removal spell (the deathtouch is removal on a stick and a deterrent all wrapped into one), or Dire Fleet Hoarder instead. (The treasure from Hoarder is nice, but comparatively Aetherborn is just a better option.)
In my opinion, any of those choices would be better than cutting Enthusiast. Wherever you do decide to fit it in though, let me know how it performs. It looks like it'll be a killer addition to the deck.
