Hi MediSyntax, you make some great points - and some less great points. Though I think that Plaguecrafter is a strict upgrade from Fleshbag Marauder in 99% of cases, I'm lead to believe that in this one instance - it's less effective. Solely due to the fact that one can still cast Gravecrawler while it's in play. I'd probably include it, but there aren't many flex-slots - not even a Merciless Executioner or Innocent Blood that fill the same role.

Running Liliana, Untouched By Death is strong - especially with the rest of the build. Being able to sacrifice and recast other 1-drops as alternative combo pieces is awesome - 10/10 suggestion.

I also want to mention Pitiless Plunderer as it's a mana more than Pawn of Ulamog - but makes coloured mana when any of your creatures die - which means that it's a recurrable creature version of Phyrexian Altar as long as you have carrion feeder or something out (also it blocks Tymna).

Doom Whisperer is cool - but given you need to sit at a cozy 20 life for Razaketh, the Foulblooded it's a tough squeeze - though I might place it over Void Winnower since digging through the top 20 is much more pro-active than locking out some cards (worth testing - maybe board for sure).

Mausoleum Secrets could be cool with some testing - I'm building a version similar to this atm. My best question is what would you cut in order to include this (sometimes functioning) tutor? The main gripe is that with Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void in play - the card is turned off.

Recently spoiled is Priest of Forgotten Gods who combos in this build well - the card functions like a bad Soldevi Adnate - but it draws cards.

Furthermore, an interesting include that came to me is Thornbite Staff - with Soldevi Adnate (and with Priest of Forgotten Gods) and Gravecrawler - you have another copy of Phyrexian Altar. Granted it requires more mana and setup than Phyrexian Altar, but if you don't want to use paradox engine to achieve the same effect with sacrificing and replaying Gravecrawler, then this is the next best thing.

Dont know what you are trying to do with the deck since you have several cards for others builds in here.Dont see a use for Bloodbond Vampire since you not gaining much life.Bloodhusk Ritualist for my deck wasnt that good. Kheru Bloodsucker not worth since you dont have my creatures for it.No reason for him at all unless its a fillerSkeletal Changeling.Chainer's Edict feel like there are better things that do this. Planar Bridge tutors are better. Not the best for how you have this deck built right nowBlighted Fen. Geier Reach Sanitarium dont use lol. Piranha Marsh use a Swamp. Not worth it Sorin's Thirst. Wound Reflection great card but not made for this deck.

here are some better sacrifice cards: Barter in Blood Fleshbag Marauder Innocent Blood Plaguecrafter Smallpox Tyrant's Choice

better land drawMikokoro, Center of the Sea

Some suggested creatures: Asylum Visitor Crypt Ghast Dark Impostor Drana, Liberator of Malakir Magus of the Coffers Sangromancer Skeletal Vampire Stromkirk Condemned

instant/sorcery: Beseech the Queen Blood Tribute Dark Petition Diabolic Tutor Night's Whisper Read the Bones Zombify Murder Sudden Spoiling Ultimate Price Victim of Night

artifact: Sword of the Animist

@ WhichKing I think I will squeeze in Read the Bones and Painful Truths, because I don't have to buy them. Thanks for your advice!

@ m_to_the_three I really appreciate your comment! I will probably add Victimize and Innocent Blood to the deck. Both seem very useful and have a place in my budget. The other upgrades are a bit pricey and maybe I will buy them later, but I'm glad that you gave me some more sac outlets to consider.

Aristocrat is a lot of fun, I run a sac/graveyard Meren deck. So for draws I recommend Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence. Be warned though, Necropotence is a powerful draw engine but it can be very hard to use in three+ color decks. If you feel confident in your mana base to run BBB then I say go for it.

Some fun sac cards I recommend adding is Innocent Blood. Its a nice way to make everybody lose a creature, you will only lose a token so who cares. Victimize you get to bring back 2 vampires from the dead for the price of one of your tokens. If ya want to spend big money, you can add Phyrexian Altar, its a good sac outlet just like Ashnod's Altar. You can also run Goblin Bombardment as another sac outlet that can help with removal. Attrition is another sac outlet that can help with removal.

Some good removal spells in your colors are Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking because they get rid of any permanent of your choice.

Now I run this in my Meren deck because I love how much it does and it fits in a sac theme. Pox, it is super powerful and usually you will be destroying tokens and nothing of too much value. However if you dont want to hurt your self too much, Smallpox is the more efficient way of doing things. very similar to Innocent Blood however for one mana more it does a lot more.

Now this is going to be a bit expensive card however it is very powerful in any tribal deck that runs red, Mana Echoes. You will be racking a lot of colorless mana that can help you cast more spells.

Because most of your deck is black, you can also run Contamination. Its a nice sac outlet and it makes everybody play black. So all your nonblack opponents are out of the game. You will be making a nice amount of tokens so you wont be running out of stuff to sacrifice anytime soon and you can easily win the game when nobody else is playing. If you want to spend a bit you can also put Bitterblossom and guarantee that you will never have Contamination leave the field.

For tutors, I reccomened Diabolic Intent. Its way better than Diabolic Tutor. I say replace your Diabolic Tutor for Diabolic Intent. It is two mana cheaper and you can easily just sac one of your tokens to search for a powerful enchantment or creature.

I don't play much pauper, but I would suggest you run more of your better cards, like Innocent Blood, fewer gates more Evolving Wilds, etc. Also, I personally feel there are better sideboard options than creatures for a creature-less control deck, maybe Shrivel. Here is a similar deck you might pull ideas from:

Blue-Black or Mono-Black, with some in Jeskai, Rakdos, Grixis, and Izzet

Really, blue has some reasonably good card draw, specifically Augur of Bolas, Mulldrifter, Preordain, Ponder, and interaction in the form of Counterspell and the occasional Deprive. Otherwise, they don't have a great set of wincons, sweepers, or removal, so they need another color to get those.

In comparison, black has Gurmag Angler, a great wincon, and the best removal in the forms of Evincar's Justice, Echoing Decay, Shrivel, Pestilence, Cuombajj Witches, Disfigure, Chainer's Edict, Oubliette, Doom Blade, they have lifegain, discard like Duress, Distress, Chittering Rats, card draw like Phyrexian Rager, Thorn of the Black Rose, Sign in Blood, and mono-colored payoffs like Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Tendrils of Corruption. There are even more great control cards from hate like Nihil Spellbomb, efficient spells like Cartouche of Ambition that just do a lot, land destruction like Choking Sands, more discard that is splashable like Addle, and the other following cards:

Diabolic Edict, Wrench Mind, Raven's Crime, Innocent Blood (for creatureless lists), Dead Weight, Crypt Incursion, Complete Disregard, Nausea, Reaping the Graves, Undying Evil, Read the Bones, Divest, Rancid Earth, Icequake, Dusk Legion Zealot, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Tragic Slip, Crypt Rats, Stinkweed Imp

That isn't to say a good mix of both isn't the best option, it probably is. You lose the mono-black payoffs, but get Probe, Forbidden Alchemy, Soul Manipulation. Really though, black is more useful than blue.

duffman24 on Grody Black Things

A couple things that might help this deck:

Ramp: Burnished Hart, Bubbling Muck, Charcoal Diamond, Cabal Stronghold, and Myriad Landscape.

Draw (aka find combos): Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Skullclamp, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Twilight Prophet, and Necropotence.

Budget Tutors: Mausoleum Secrets.

Not-as Budget Tutors: Beseech the Queen, Diabolic Intent, and Diabolic Revelation (for late game shenanigans).

Controlly things: Plaguecrafter, Fleshbag Marauder, Ravenous Chupacabra, Imp's Mischief, and Innocent Blood (personal favorite).

Win cons (not that you need more): Torment of Hailfire.

Also fun fact, if you're interested in storm and would rather play black, you can actually make a pretty mean storm deck with just black and Sidisi would be great at the helm. You could even just build a second Sidisi deck and keep this one the way it is. Cards like Ad Nauseam and Tendrils of Agony would be how to win.
