this deck is great! +1! you'll have a huge graveyard and probably would've killed your opponent pretty quick with all the life loss but in case you didn't maybe Corpseweft or Empty the Pits for some nice tokens? good stuff either way!

Fraying Sanity + Traumatize ought to get you one kill point.

With Altar of Dementia, you might want to include the Gravedigger + Cadaver Imp + Deathrender combo. Essentially, with both creatures in hand, or a way to get both, or with 1 on the battlefield and 1 in hand, you attach Deathrender to one creature, sac it to the Altar, play the other creature on to Deathrender and use the RTB trigger to get the first creature back to your hand from the graveyard. Loop infinitely to mill everyone out.

You might also play Bloodchief Ascension since you have Mindcrank.

Cyclonic Rift and River's Rebuke are good complements for Aetherize.

Altar of the Brood would benefit from more token producing cards like Army of the Damned, Dark Salvation, and Empty the Pits.

The Zombie Mill EDH archetype is probably worth looking at, as well.

Happy brewing!

Great deck name!

More zombies, fewer non-zombies, and a Rooftop Storm? Liliana, Death's Majesty, and Liliana, the Last Hope, might be cool walkers for this list, too. Spells like Empty the Pits and Curse of Shallow Graves might also be flavorful.

You might also consider a more zombie-friendly commander that won't hurt you too badly, such as Gisa and Geralf or The Scarab God.

Happy brewing!

Nice deck! +1

Empty the Pits is always surprising opponents at their endstep.

If you still go with grimmy I would recommend Arcane Lighthouse to make the most of his triggered ability.

Also there's a cute (albeit mana intensive) engine with Reito Lantern and Cellar Door to make zombie tokens at instant speed.

Serra Ascendant is banned in commander. In place of Empty the Pits maybe Army of the Damned

This commander looks great.

Have you tested with Sanguine Bond to complement Exquisite Blood?

I also wonder about more token producers to work with your Anointed Procession. Cards like Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Carrion, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Liliana, the Last Hope, Plague of Vermin, Secure the Wastes, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, might help here.

Have fun playing!

If your playgroup is up for combos, Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond is often played in these colors. Aetherflux Reservoir is often played in life-gain decks.

Zulaport Cutthroat complements Blood Artist.

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos get better with more sac outlets. Have you ever tested with Disciple of Bolas or Viscera Seer?

Greed is a good source of card draw in a life-gain deck.

A lot of your creatures are too big for Sun Titan; maybe something like a Serra Ascendant instead for more life-gain?

You may also want more token generators to make Anointed Procession really pay off in a big way. Cards like Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Carrion, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Liliana, the Last Hope, Plague of Vermin, Secure the Wastes, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, might help here.

Happy brewing!

Enral Wait, am I missing something? There are four copies of Empty the Pits literally right in the deck.
