Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder Discussion

Suggestions for your mana base:
Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).
Suggestions for draw and card advantage:
It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.
Suggestions for removal spells:
Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

I agree with that swap. Your creature package isn't too impressive so the payoff from Living Death is marginal. I would like to see Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder get replaced eventually as well. If you end up taking out Living Death, you may want one board wipe though just as a fail safe. Your best option without a doubt being Toxic Deluge.

@Triton: I'm not a huge fan of Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder because it does not generate immediate advantage, requires other cards to support it, and is inefficiently costed. The main problem with the efficient options is that they are fairly expensive monetary-wise (~$10). You have a majority of the low monetary cost efficient token generators, with that in mind my suggestions are Grave Titan; Bitterblossom; Master of the Wild Hunt; Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet; and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury. All of the aforementioned are fantastic and probably deserve a spot here, but the real question is which/how many of these fit in your budget. There is also Avenger of Zendikar, but I'll let you decide whether this is a viable include because it's usefulness is based upon the amount of lands you have and stax isn't exactly know for its land prowess or ability to pump out 7 cmc cards effectively. Nonetheless tell me which of these, if any, fit in your budget and I'll help you make room.

Alright, I've been testing this deck, and I was suggested more token producers (also through testing I wish I had more token producing cards). Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder was recommended, are there any other relatively cheap ones that would help make the stax effects more one-sided?

Great deck and video. I think Shattergang works really well for a budget EDH deck, way more so than other generals. Cool stuff!
Couple of misses, in my opinion:
I also like Heartstone, not just for the bros, but for Reassembling Skeleton. Late game it works better than the tappers since you have a better shot at doing a bunch of sacrifices in the same turn.

As I'm casting, the first ability that reads "Whenever you cast a creature spell, create X 1/1 black Thrull creature tokens, where X is that spell's converted mana cost." triggers and I create seven 1/1 black Thrull tokens.
Then, the second ability that reads "When you control seven or more Thrulls, sacrifice Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder." triggers as well.
My question is this: Can I Sacrifice Thrulls to Phyrexian Altar (as paying for the cost of its activated ability) with the second trigger still on the stack so when it tries to resolve, it will check and there should be less than seven Thrulls, so the triggered ability is countered and I get to keep Endrek on the battlefield?

Fun cards yet budget:
- Hermit Druid. Mill yourself big time.
- Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. very budget, very nasty.
- Hornet Queen. smile widely, everytime you find her in the graveyard. 1/1 flying deathtouch is GOOD, and a wipe delivers 5 counters for Meren.
- Smothering Abomination. draw!
- Wake the Dead. boom
- Sell Mike and get Cauldron of Souls. More synergy with +1 giving creatures, and spent the rest of the budget on Massacre Wurm and It That Betrays
Cards to cut:
