At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player sacrifices a nonland, nontoken permanent. If that player can't, they discard a card, they lose w life, you draw a card, you gain 2 life, you create a 2/2 white Knight creature token with vigilance, then you sacrifice Doom Foretold.

Combos/synergies for Treacherous Blessing ? EDHREC pointed out Korvold, Fae-Cursed King , Shattergang Brothers , Daxos the Returned & Cloudstone Curio , and I noticed Ertai, the Corrupted myself. Vraska, Golgari Queen & Doom Foretold works too. (Its native set obviously got several cards that can sacrifice it for profit as well.)

Boza thanks for your suggestions!
I don't hate Wildwood Tracker in this deck, however I think the ability to play a 3 drop on T2 or a 4 drop on T3 is too big of an upside to cut Gilded Goose or Paradise Druid for it. Additionally, it doesn't play well with Pelt Collector like Gallia of the Endless Dance or Paradise Druid do.
In my opinion, the downside of Lovestruck Beast not being able to attack without a 1/1 is too high to include it in the main deck. Although it survives a Deafening Clarion , Shock , Bonecrusher Giant , or any bounce effect like Brazen Borrower on its own, it will not be able to do anything without the token or a Wildwood Tracker on the board. I think those two cards you suggested pair nicely, but in a different version of the deck, or even a go-wide version with more 1/1 creature support. Also, Lovestruck Beast does not provide enough devotion to help enable Klothys, God of Destiny regularly.
Ilysian Caryatid seems better in a go-big strategy, possibly using for Rotting Regisaur or Polukranos, Unchained . For the T1 Gilded Goose into T2 Domri, Anarch of Bolas play alone, I find having a T1 mana creature to be much more relevant. Additionally, selecting Paradise Druid over Ilysian Caryatid allows my Pelt Collector to trigger on T2.
I am including 2 copies of Sunder Shaman as a mainboard way to fight against the new Gods, as well as any matches against decks running Doom Foretold , Fires of Invention , or other impactful enchantments. It adds 4 devotion for Klothys, God of Destiny which is huge, and is just an overstatted body on its own. I don't feel bad running the 2 copies in the main, as this is a BO1 deck where having a bit of insurance against problematic enchantments could prove to be very helpful.
The one copy of Escape to the Wilds is a way to refill after a sweeper, and actually outperformed my expectations during the last standard season. You'd be shocked with how much pressure you can apply after hitting 2/3 relevant creatures with its ability, which can be enough to push for lethal the turn after you play it. I've only included 1 copy, as I am testing out Klothys, God of Destiny as a way to push the last few points of damage.
Finally, I see Collision / Colossus to be more of a side board option, where this deck is geared towards BO1 play. I think having the ability to fight with Domri, Anarch of Bolas along side its ability to provide mana and a +1/+0 static anthem effect are much more relevant than running a conditional pump spell. It does pair nicely with Embercleave , and can take down a flying threat, however this deck is more focused on pushing through damage to achieve a win on T4/T5 if possible. Holding up 2 mana for this effect is taking away from a turn that I could just play Embercleave or an impactful creature, and the list is pretty tight so I can't justify making 2 cuts for the copies.
Thank you again for your suggestions! Like I said I think they might be suited for a similar deck but aren't the exact effects I am looking to pull off with this build. I hope I explained my decision making well enough, feel free to disagree or build one however you see fit!

Prison Realm is pretty flexible and answers the two biggest threats planeswalkers and creatures so you could probably run 4 mainboard without much downside. There isn't much enchantment removal mainboard atm. At least not in any common decks that I can think of other than Doom Foretold decks. Like I said I'd probably drop Assassin's Trophy and go for the extra Prism Realm, Legion's End , Find / Finality , or a Gideon. Then drop two Order of Midnight for a Rankle and Questing Beast at some point. Questing Beast especially tends to get a lot of value from my experience. It can immediately attack, evade, trade, kill a planeswalker, block, etc. Though it will be much stronger once Oko gets banned and Wicked Wolf is on a decline.
The rest kinda depends on your local meta. If mardu knights becomes a consistent problem for you, consider cheap answers like Glass Casket , Sorcerous Spyglass (can stop embercleave, planeswalkers, etc.) in the sideboard. Personally I struggle more with G/X decks (especially G/R aggro) and my sideboard focuses on that since green is so strong atm.

Justiciar's Portal would work very well with some of your cards and serves as an emergency card to protect your doggos from getting destroyed. Also I would put in some copies of Disenchant , because Fires of Invention , Cavalcade of Calamity , Conclave Tribunal , Doom Foretold , Ethereal Absolution , Revenge of Ravens and Wilderness Reclamation are very popular recently. Also against some hideous artifacts like Bolas's Citadel , Embercleave , Lucky Clover and the infamous Golos, Tireless Pilgrim .

Yeah Doom Foretold would be a fun brew, but I think it would be too inconsistent. But why would Liliana, Dreadhorde General synergize with the troll negatively? Nonetheless I'm not sure if I would consider Liliana, since I'm trying to be more budget friendly. A token strategy would be a fun deck too, with Harmonious Archon , but he works badly with Hushbringer . As it seems right now I can't find a good shell for the Clackbridge Troll + Hushbringer combo

I have to say building around Doom Foretold was a lot of fun in my opinion, and even more fun is surprising the enemy with it. Also, I don't know if you consider it a finisher, but Liliana, Dreadhorde General would fit relatively well into the deck due to the tokens you're generating. Though she has negative synergy with Clackbridge Troll .

Yeah I now have to think in which direction I want to head with the deck. I was initially thinking of a orzhov control or maybe midrange type of deck, but couldn't find a good finisher which wouldn't get affected by Hushbringer . Another option would be building around Doom Foretold as you suggested.
