Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening are solid creature recursion.

Bontu the Glorified is a sac outlet and death trigger. Value.

Burnished Hart is good to fetch a couple basic lands. Always helpful.

Bubbling Muck No explanation required.

Toxic Deluge Board wipe that gets around indestructible.

You should look at adding Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Spawning Pit , Viscera Seer and Altar of Dementia for sac outlets.

For sac fodder look to add Archon of Justice , Doomed Traveler , Doomed Dissenter , Myr Sire , Tithe Taker , Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation to name a few.

For card draw look to Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex and Greed .

Ramp using Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

Recur your creatures using Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .

Garruk's Wake wipes the board leaving your stuff intact then cast Command the Dreadhorde to take control what ever number of planeswalkers and creatures are in your opponents graveyard.

In my opinion there is a lot of room for improvement. No disrespect meant.

I suggest finding a spot for the following cards.

For recursion

Phyrexian Reclamation , Malevolent Awakening

Prevent Opponents from gaining Life

Tainted Remedy , Erebos, God of the Dead provided your meta plays lifegain.

Lifegain for Yourself


Card Draw

Greed , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex


Smothering Tithe , Burnished Hart , Knight of the White Orchid , Crypt Ghast , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Cabal Coffers , Ancient Tomb replacing Temple of the False God

Sacrifice Outlets

Spawning Pit , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Altar of Dementia ,

Replace Elspeth, Knight-Errant with Liliana, Dreadhorde General


Toxic Deluge , In Garruk's Wake

After a boardwipe use Command the Dreadhorde take control of opponents creatures and/or Planeswalkers from their graveyard to use as you see fit.

Other cards to strongly consider would be

God-Eternal Bontu , Bontu's Monument , Expedition Map

There is much more I can say and recommend but this is enough for now.

Good luck and happy brewing.

I suggest Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening for recursion.

Athreos, God of Passage is also a good one.

Knight of the White Orchid is good ramp.

No Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers ? Best ramp combo for black.

Looks like a good start. I would suggest 35 lands minimum.

You could use more recursion. Try Phyrexian Reclamation , Malevolent Awakening and Athreos, God of Passage .

For ramp look at Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid

Look at improving your sacrifice fodder. Search for creatures with the “Afterlife” ability.

Also feel free to check out my deck for possible ideas.
