You've made the same mistake a lot of people tend to do myself included and that is have stuff that creates sac fodder but you don't have nearly enough sac fodder to get your deck going. Your deck will fail to get going or stall out early. You should look at cards like

Doomed Dissenter , Doomed Traveler , Seraph of the Scales , Hunted Witness , Myr Sire , etc.

Tilling1977 on Its Orzhov Time

This is a great little budget deck, have played my first FNM with this last week and came second with a won 4 lost 2 record, it can work as a control deck to stall the game while I get the big guns out or it can also be strong from the start with plenty of cards that need killing twice like Hunted Witness and Orzhov Enforcer

The Planeswalkers really help to control things but when I do get in trouble Zetalpa, Primal Dawn and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth are game changers on their own.

Overall really enjoying playing with this deck at the moment but would appreciate any help for what I could have as a good sideboard for this deck.

I play all three cards you wanted to swap out in my own Teysa Deck (Teysa Karlov's Citadel).

Reassembling Skeleton is simply awesome because you can do this in instant speed and it has really nice combos you can pull off to get infinite death triggers and sometimes also infinite mana. The same goes for Nether Traitor , awesome card and I'd include it.

If you are not on a budget then Bloodghast might be an improvement over Doomed Traveler or Hunted Witness . Sometimes can screw you if you don't have enough fixing, but depending you'll be playing this card early, I think it should be fine. Only downside is that you don't get immediate value. Both Travler and Witness give you 2 creatures for , which is nice.

For Brood of Cockroaches I'm a bit sceptical, because you get it back in to your hand EOT. So no combos are possible like the ones for Skeleton and Traitor. I'd rather run a Doomed Traveler or Hunted Witness instead for immediate value.

Great Deck!
Wouldn't Bloodghast , Brood of Cockroaches and Nether Traitor be better options to Doomed Traveler , Reassembling Skeleton , or Hunted Witness ? They may not create extra tokens, but they can repeatedly trigger non-token-death-triggers.

Okay, so the idea here is that you sacrifice creatures with afterlife for damage ala Aristocrat, but somewhat themed. Standard sacrifice victims,
Hunted Witness Martyr of Dusk Cruel Celebrant

two of these drop tokens on death, and one does damage. We can also add in Seraph of the Scales for a total of three creatures to sacrifice.

The Standard Executioners used to de-board, Pitiless Pontiff Priest of Forgotten Gods

Lets add in some additional Token Creation, Teysa Karlov Finale of Glory Liliana, Dreadhorde General Legion's Landing  Flip

Then lets turn that Token power into magic-magic with Divine Visitation Bolas's Citadel

Then Recharge with Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord

FullmetalWes I figured I could cut out Hunted Witness and just have playsets of Mentor of the Meek for more consistent card draw Ministrant of Obligation for better Afterlife and Orzhov Enforcer for more blockers with Deathtouch, but I haven't gotten around to playtesting it just yet.

Hi MgStrange and Shyvana_!

At the moment the deck formula is a little in standby until I can test a bit further. As spoilers were rolling, the changes appeared to be evident, but now that the full spoiler is out, I'm not sure what direction to ( Dreadhorde Butcher was there for a while and then got cut). The thing is that this list is an Aggro deck with "dies" synergies mostly. But with Cruel Celebrant a more combo-oriented version of the deck is possible. With a Hunted Witness , two Celebrants and a Teysa, you win the game if you play Massacre Girl on turn 5! It's 20 points of damage!

Anyway, for this iteration of the deck I do like Tibalt, Rakish Instigator in the Sideboard against control. On the other hand, I don't think Angrath, the Flame-Chained is that good in an Aggro deck, I like it more in Midrange decks. Also I don't like Heartfire in this deck. I do see it being played in Mono-Red but here it's not that great, I rather the removal to be unconditional, like Mortify . Also there's a ton of sacrifice effects with Plaguecrafter and Priest of Forgotten Gods . Another consideration is that Hero of Precinct One isn't that good in the deck. I'd rather play Dreadhorde Invasion which gives you a token every turn for sure and it doesn't push you to multicolours so hardly (I feel less bad cutting multicolor spells for Bontu).

Other interesting inclusions are God-Eternal Bontu which you can play, and with her trigger on the stack, you sacrifice Bontu and draw it again! Finally Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord makes all the things that Revival / Revenge does, but better!

Anyway, thanks a lot to you both for the comments! You helped a bunch!

Also, I am a fan of a lot of the Ravnica Allegiance afterlife cards like Tithe Taker , Imperious Oligarch , etc. Hunted Witness too.
