Ideally you would not be sacrificing things until Kresh is out mid-game right? I don't really see it as an issue. I think there are more cards with decent reanimation built in that you could use: Squee, the Immortal , Squee, Goblin Nabob , Gutterbones , Endless Cockroaches
If you want something to do early game I always fall back on ramp. Jund has so many ramp options. I would suggest you swap all your mana rocks for mana dorks since you can get benefits if they die. I did this same thing with my Prossh, Skyraider of Kher deck, and found many different dorks: Deathcap Cultivator , Elves of Deep Shadow , Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Tinder Wall and many more.

@Mishraharad, That's understandable. Reconsidering your stax pieces a better fit for your deck would be Flameshadow Conjuring + Felidar Guardian + Mountain or any land/artifact that comes untapped and can produce .
You have Flameshadow Conjuring in play and a Mountain . You then proceed to cast Felidar Guardian . Both the Felidar and the Flameshadow trigger. You'll always resolve Felidar Guardian 's ETB first targeting your Mountain to flicker and untap it. Then you can tap the Mountain to pay Flameshadow Conjuring 's triggered ability creating a hasty Felidar Guardian token. Because a token enters Flameshadow Conjuring does not trigger again, so instead you have the Felidar Guardian token's ETB target the original Felidar Guardian blinking the cat and having it re-enter the battlefield again which will also re-trigger the Flameshadow Conjuring . You then repeat, cat blinks mountain, mountain makes another haste cat token, haste cat token blinks original cat, until you have enough hasty cats to deal lethal to everyone.
Felidar Guardian is good as it can also combo off with Karmic Guide and Goblin Bombardment . Flameshadow Conjuring may not be an optimal stand alone card, but creating extra ETB's per turn will always give it something to do. Do note if your opponent kills the cat before you can go infinite you won't be able to reinitiate the combo for lethal by recurring the cat with your commander, as you'll have wasted the combat step doing so. However, if you do so with a Goblin Bombardment or Altar of Dementia you can then deal lethal as you'll have infinite tokens to sacrifice to anyways.
There are a few other lethal combos that crossed my mind that would also by-pass all your current stax pieces:
Mana Echoes + Goblin Trenches + Drownyard Temple = Infinite goblins, infinite colorless mana, and infinite landfall. Can be activated at instant speed on an opponent's end-step making the tokens safe from boardwipe.
Teysa, Orzhov Scion + Darkest Hour + Goblin Bombardment + any other creature = Sac the other creature, since Darkest Hour made the creature black Teysa produces a 1/1 white spirit token. Darkest Hour however makes the spirit token black, so sacrificing the spirit will produce another black spirit, and again and again for endless sac-effects.

I have an ayli EDH deck
Commander / EDH
SCORE: 8 | 10 COMMENTS | 961 VIEWS | IN 7 FOLDERS
im trying to figure out which would be more effective: having mass creature tokens to sac to ayli's ability or more creatures that either have recursion on them like: Endless Cockroaches and Reassembling Skeleton or just put more recursion cards in and not have such of a heavy token sub-theme. which do you think would be more efficient? thanks for your time.

If you want Xantcha top be your Win-Con you might need one more piece. Elixir of Immortality or any of the legendary Eldrazi should keep you from decking yourself. Especially if you take out the blue player first.

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha
