Death's Shadow + Scavenge == righteous.

Have you tested with Doubling Season or Hardened Scales? Do you feel like you have enough sac outlets? I wonder if Grim Backwoods or High Market might be useful as additional ways to populate the graveyard. Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Sidisi, Undead Vizier might be helpful in that regard, too.

Happy brewing!

You can combine sac outlets and sacrifice-based removal with other effects that make your opponents sacrifice creatures, as well, gaining counters for your creatures that survive.

Some popular sac outlets/triggers in these colors include:

Then you can also play creatures and effects that cause opponents to sac or give you bonus counters with Marizek.

Then you can bring those creatures back into play or into your hand to sac again and again with recursive cards.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth is a popular commander for these kinds of decks, as well.

My other ideas are either in Mazirek Counters or its maybeboard. Let me know if I can be of more help :)

...FOR NON BUDGET

While these are more expensive, they are the better kinds of mana fixing you can find for EDH

Fetches- Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Verdant Catacombs, and other off color fetches

Shocks- Stomping Ground, Overgrown Tomb, Blood Crypt

Filter- Fire-Lit Thicket, Twilight Mire, Graven Cairns

Grove of the Burnwillows

Alpha Duals are another consideration but they are over 100$ a piece, outside of most peoples budget. Same goes for Gaea's Cradle.

Lastly, some of these are cheap and some are not, but every EDH deck should have some utility lands like the ones you have in Rogues Passage and Kher Keep. Some other ones are-

Barren Moor and other mono colored cycle lands

Oran-Rief, the Vastwood

Raging Ravine and other creature lands

Grim Backwoods

Mortuary Mire

Blighted Woodland

TRK27 on Glissa abuse

Looks good! Some comments by card:

Ashnod's Altar - Seems like a good idea, especially as you're running a few more creatures than I am. You sure you don't want to run Nim Deathmantle combos?

Clock of Omens - Cool tech for tapping down Winter Orb, I might have to consider running that myself.

Elsewhere Flask, Ichor Wellspring - I ran these in earlier builds of the deck and they ended up getting cut. They always underperformed. Eggs that are just eggs and nothing else don't strike me as particularly valuable for Glissa.

Buried Ruin - Another early cut. Redundancy for Glissa's ability isn't worth giving up colored mana.

Forbidden Orchard - This is just a great idea, and I'm definitely putting it into my deck. Lets Glissa Mindslaver-lock any deck, even one that's not creature heavy.

Grim Backwoods - Another early cut. Maybe your build wants it as you're a bit more creature heavy, and it works well with your Junk Diver and Myr Retriever.

Temple of the False God - I'm not a believer in this card. Too often it's just a dead draw.

Disciple of the Vault - I'm not convinced that this guy's worth it here.
