Falkenrath Noble Discussion

Of the X creature spells in Modern, Stonecoil Serpent fits this deck's strategy the best since it has relevant abilities and recurs as an artifact. I don't really want to be playing 0 CMC creatures just for death triggers.
There are other/cheaper drain effects, but they all have downsides that make them less relevant in this strategy than Falkenrath Noble (it has > 1 toughness, flying, and drains when any creature dies):
- As you mentioned, 1 toughness creatures like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat don't work.
- Vindictive Vampire doesn't have flying and only drains when our creatures die.
- Cruel Celebrant requires a white splash, only drains when our creatures die, and its mana cost isn't improved with Heartless Summoning . This deck could be modified to be BW or BG, but I refuse to pay ridiculous money for fetch lands, so I stick to mono-colored builds.
- I'm thinking Bontu the Glorified may be the best option since it drains, provides a sac outlet, and can be a difficult to deal with threat.
I've looked at Fecundity lists, but most of them are GR token aggro lists.

Alright so a few suggestions I would make for this deck:
Get some more mana rocks and mana fixing into this deck it will help your games be more consistent and you can get some really cheap rocks that aren't as efficient but will still help you a lot.
I am not a huge fan of Wight of Precinct Six I dislike cards that rely so much on other player's graveyards if I am not actively milling them.
I would recommend getting some removal in this deck to help you protect yourself better and maybe disrupt your opponents plans. You have murder which works well, maybe throw in a Bone Splinters ?
Additionally this depends on how much you want to play aristocrat or swing wide. But if you are working toward killing zombies to bring down your opponent maybe a Zulaport Cutthroat or a Falkenrath Noble would help?
Anyway, I hope these suggestions help and enjoy your deck. It looks fun!
I would also recommend some targeted removal if you can get them.

A cheap removal spell in this deck would be a Bone Splinters this of course depends on your meta.
Falkenrath Noble is another good card that also punishes other players who try to set up their sac engine and moves you toward your goal of winning.
I know it is a little pricier at $2ish but a Swords to Plowshares will be invaluable at keeping you alive.
I like Kambal, Consul of Allocation I didn't even know about that card. It doesn't synergize as much with the deck (except for it being a two power card) but it is a nice deterrent.
I dislike Ankle Shanker in this deck because his deathtouch/first strike ability don't trigger when you bring him onto the battlefield from the graveyard tapped and attacking. Which is a HUGE bummer.
I want to get the Archetype of Finality for my deck as well that is pure value in Alesha.
Overall I like it, you have all of the essentials in here. The biggest thing that I notice though is that you don't seem to have that many sacrifice outlets for this deck to get your infinite Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + Murderous Redcap combo off. I'd recommend Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar but those are pricey af and I can only recommend if you REALLY like this deck. But there are plenty of cheap ones that I run!
All of the above are under a dollar in price and able to get that sac engine up and running for you.
Anyway I know this was a lot but I hope that it helps you have a good deck here. Enjoy it!

Hey, I saw the deck, and I have some suggestions:
Fungal Plots : Is a good sac outlet to deal damage with Slimefoot that offers card advantage, but also can create some saprolings. I played it in a Saproling Tribal standard deck and it feels very good with Slimefoot.
I think that in the Drain and Gain section you can use Zulaport Cutthroat and Syr Conrad the Grim instead of Epicure of Blood and Falkenrath Noble . The Cutthroat because is more cheap, and Syr Conrad because also can drain when you use Necrogenesis , Whisper, Blood Liturgist , Champion of Stray Souls and Fungal Plots (If you add it)
Winding Constrictor : I saw that a lot of your saproling-makers work with spore counters. With this you will be able to create saprolings faster.
I hope this helped you

Ah, life gain! A strategy as old as time, so what a splendid choice in deck!
Beacon of Immortality can propel you far ahead, often to the point of team-up. (Use with care)
Killing Wave is a befitting board wipe for a strategy such as this, especially one with few creatures.
Phyrexian Processor can be a finisher with efficacy, but that's a personal choice.
Blind Obedience can slow down your opponents vastly whilst upholding your life-gain schemes.
Crypt Ghast is fine ramp that, again, can gain life.
At last, Chainer, Dementia Master is a card I love all too much and gets out of hand very quickly.
Let the Nightmare Go On..: My decklist for Chainer. :)
Conquer all with 200 life.

Metroid_Hybrid Hey there, thanks for the upvote.
Geralf's Messenger and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed are both already in the deck. I don't think it's worth it to run Vengeful Vampire due to its mana cost; I obviously have Mikaeus taking up that slot, though even if I didn't, it's better to treat things such as Pawn of Ulamog or Genesis Chamber as pseudo-Undying creatures since you can sacrifice the tokens they produce to remove the -1/-1 counter from the actual Undying creature.
For your Blood Artist effect recommendations, Vindictive Vampire is, in my opinion, a better option than Falkenrath Noble or Syr Konrad, the Grim . Vindictive Vampire hits all opponents for damage as opposed to just one and is one mana cheaper than Konrad (unfortunate since I actually think he's cool).
Even better than Vindictive Vampire is Ayara, First of Locthwain , who replaces him. While she isn't a true "Artist", her abilities still make Yawgmoth's life payment go neutral, make all opponents lose life, and can act as another sac/draw outlet if Yawgmoth isn't around.

I love my Yawgmoth deck, it’s a blast to play with..
Some Undying creatures for looping with Yawg-daddy to consider are Sightless Ghoul , Vengeful Vampire , and then depending on your budget, there’s the Shock -trooper Geralf's Messenger , and the (non-Human) Undying Lord himself: Mikaeus, the Unhallowed ..
