Thank you for your sugestions. I deffently like the Tattered Mummy and Sling-Gang Lieutenant and could even find a place for Dutiful Attendant

as for Aetherworks Marvel it's not bad by any means I think I just have this strange love for Jar of Eyeballs . It just lets me dig deeper, although it's worth play testing to see what I come up with.

once again thank you!

I'm pretty new to magic (have never played modern) but was looking at making a deck like this. Would Jar of Eyeballs be a good card draw solution?

Yeah I haven't been too impressed with Jar of Eyeballs . Straight up card draw is faster and free in most cases. Spawning Pit I'm still on the fence about. I've built a few good board states with it out since I could keep removing the counters to put more tokens out. Hell's Caretaker and Kaya's Wrath are basically budget cards for their functions. I'll see if I can replace them without upping the budget too much.

Oversold Cemetery and Carnival of Souls are good ideas. I forgot about Carnival, and I wasn't aware of Cemetery. That might replace Caretaker now that I think about it.

Thanks for taking a look! Currently I'm wondering if I'm running enough control to actually control the board. I'm also trying to make sure I can bounce back from board wipes. Considering the nature of a deck like this, board wipes shouldn't scare me. I want things to die. I just want to make sure I have enough in my toolbox to bring things back in good time when they happen. Living Death is probably the most instant form of recovery there.

The weakest cards I see so far are:

You can probably cut some of the higher CMC cards to go more of a control route. Anointed Procession is actually a trap card, but some people like it I actually don't since there are other ways to make a multitude of tokens. Oversold Cemetery might also be good and can be considered. Carnival of Souls is also something to be considered.

What do you think so far?

Massacre Wurm Gets double triggers, (so does anything which triggers when your opponents stuff dies), you can make them lose 4 life for each thing you kill.

Black Market Double payout, amazing value!

Butcher of Malakir Grave Pact on a stick.

Dark Prophecy Skullclamp for everyone? This looks too good not to run.

Demon of Dark Schemes Yeah it's energy weirdness but for every two things that die you can reanimate any one guy from any graveyard, it's probably the only stand alone energy card worth running anywhere, but it seems especially spicy here.

Jar of Eyeballs Bit of a joke, double eyeballs.

Mimic Vat Whilst you skip any death triggers from imprinting something on it, the token it makes does die on the end step, jam a Kokusho, the Evening Star onto this and drain for days. Also can imprint your opponents things.

Revel in Riches Gives double treasures, also works with Smothering Tithe for even faster wins

Wound Reflection hurts real bad.

Vindictive Lich Powerful effect to double up, also can be fed to Skullclamp

Yahenni, Undying Partisan an Indestructible sac outlet.

Xynarth: Actually I just skipped the sacrifice part... dammit, I was already so excited about getting 5/5s all day long. I put in Yahenni, Undying Partisan. It's really hard to choose between Jar of Eyeballs and Shadows of the Past. I am also constantly thinking about Nether Traitor. Hundred cards are just not enough T_T I just want some more spots...

Maybe I should just take out the Revel in Riches-package? Although it's a very fun win condition and might help you win games in stuck situations...
