Yo so Cemetery Puca is technically outside your commanders color identity, so you might wanna switch it for something else. Maybe Mimic Vat ?

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.

Oh, also, if you need to shave dollars to stay in your budget, I would start with Archetype of Courage , Fiendslayer Paladin , Gift of Immortality , Kazandu Blademaster , Lingering Souls (It's not legal in your colors to begin with, so that should be cut regardless), Mimic Vat , New Benalia , Prototype Portal (What is this even doing here?), Return to Dust ( Crush Contraband is roughly as good and much cheaper), Rogue's Passage (only really worth it in a voltron deck), Seal Away ( Crib Swap and Stasis Snare are better and cheaper), Sigiled Paladin , Silverbeak Griffin (how is a card from an intro deck a dollar, anyway?), and Thalia's Lancers .

Mimic Vat is a good and recursive card for her, same as all permanents with sacrifice effect or do your opponents sacrifice creatures other cards that could be interesting are Helm of the Host and Ethereal Absolution

ancientskull on 30 Baneful Omens

Just... Wow... Casting Clever Impersonator only to get itself killed, specifically so that you can bring it back as a token using Mimic Vat , so that you can have a Token copy of Baneful Omen , so that Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer can turn all of your Brass's Bounty treasure tokens into additional copies of Baneful Omen .... The setup required for this combo is absurd... You have to have down a shitton of lands, cast a Bounty, have down Mimic Vat, have Omen in play, have Brudiclad in play, have Impersonator in hand..... Jeez... This is truly a work of art.

Mimic Vat can also be a fun card to use to make copies!

So I'm assuming we are going with a sac outlet style here, and I have a couple of win cons. Exsanguinate / Debt to the Deathless for a large amount using Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar , Sac outlet procs from Kokusho/Artist/Cutthroat/Evangel, or Mirror Entity swarm.

Suggestions:

Cuts:

  • Ashen Rider: I personally hate this card, it's so god awfully expensive and it expensive for a pretty vanilla creature... I think that unless you are playing a reanimator style this isn't worth playing at 8 CMC
  • Butcher of malakir: I know a lot of people love this card, but I'd rather just play Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact over this any day, too expensive and too easily destroyed.
  • Extractor demon: It's too expensive and mill is one of those things you have to COMMIT to.
  • Havester of souls: I'd rather see a Smothering Abomination , Dark Prophecy , Gate to the Afterlife , or Grim Haruspex
  • Knight Of The Last Breath: It's really bad.
  • Krav, the unredeemed: This one is a bit iffy, it could be really good it could be really bad playtest with it, and if the deck doesn't do what you want it should be onthe first to go list.
  • Light of the Legion: You don't have enough white creatures to make this worth while.
  • Regna, the Redeemed: It's just WAY too expensive.
  • Nomad's Assembly: This could be good, but it's far too expensive
  • Storm Herd: This isn't your game plan my friend, I mean sure you could play it and win off it but I think you're better off taking that 10 mana and dumbing it into an Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless
  • Rise of the Dark Realms: Too expensive, and you have no way to cheat it out.
  • Cathar's Crusade: your gameplan should be more sac to get triggers and do silly things, not attacking.
  • Divine Visitation: It's a Win more card in a deck that isn't solely based on making tokens, not worth.
  • Sanguine bond/Exquisite Blood: I'm just not a fan of the combo, it pisses people off and is no fun. Play one or the other, not both.
  • Grave Betrayl: Too expensive in my book
  • True Coviction: Triple white in a deck that is prominently black... No thank you... Plus this doesn't contribute to your win con.
  • Sword of Light and Shadow: Why? It won't protect against your board wipes, and it's very much not your strategy.
