You have a lot of swamps so I think Mutilate is a better fit than Ritual of Soot and you may as well include Isolated Watchtower and Terrain Generator for the same reason. You generate a lot of 1/1s so Skullclamp, you have plenty of zombie spells so Gravecrawler and since you gain life Oathsworn Vampire seems legit?

And since youre running so many basics Terrain Generator and Isolated Watchtower are pretty cheap

If youre playing mono white and running Path to Exile you may as well play Isolated Watchtower I wouldnt call it synergy as much as "making the best of it"

All of those points seem really solid, thanks! I have an Arcane Signet in my Iroas, God of Victory edh deck I can slide it over for now. I ordered Jet Medallion (what an outstanding card!) and Terrain Generator and Isolated Watchtower. I removed Temple of the False God and made a cut for 37th land. Anything else you see that looks wonky?

You could go any number of directions with the main deck using a card pool of bulk commons to $15 cards, so I think the manabase is the easiest place to make objective improvements. Temple of the False God is a trash card. Just awful. If you don't have something important to do with 7 mana and aren't already guaranteed to hit 5 lands, it's not a good fit for the deck. 36 lands is a low count for a casual EDH deck, and you're effectively running 35. Jet Medallion is worth the ~$15. You'll use it in every black-based deck until the end of time. Unfortunately, Arcane Signet makes Charcoal Diamond look like a joke, even in a mono-colored deck. Fortunately, it's coming down in price with the reprint, and you'll also want as many of those as you can get until the end of time. As for budget utility lands, Isolated Watchtower and Terrain Generator are probably both better than Myriad Landscape in a mono-colored deck with so many basics.

Brutal_B, Hey Thanks for checking in and making suggestions! I appreciate it! Good catch on the extra Herald of Anafenza , and my bad for not adding the commander. I was planning on using Odric, Lunarch Marshal which is why I have so many creatures with added abilities. I don't have the other Odric, or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . I used to have a sick foil copy of elesh, but I had to sell it a while back. If I can track one down I'll pick it up and stuff it in. I like your land choices, I think I might have the Idyllic Grange , I'll have to check, and I do not have the Emeria, The Sky Ruin or the Isolated Watchtower but I'm sure I can find a Rogue's Passage somewhere. I'm currently looking to make cuts to the deck and thin it down to a Hundo. If you have any other thoughts I'd appreciate the feedback, Thanks!

You have 2x Herald of Anafenza and no Odric. Which one are you using? I'm guessing it's Odric, Master Tactician ?

Some lands with considering: Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Idyllic Grange , Isolated Watchtower , Rogue's Passage .

What do you think of slotting in Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite ? I know she's mana spendy but if you could get her out early or cheat her out, or just a late game drop, that would snuff out goblins on the spot. Just something to think about...
