Selphiron on Thar be pirates on these seas!

Here are some other suggestions: Piracy Charm. The following cards are more "Thief"-themed cards but they still suit in this deck I think. Morgue Theft, Morsel Theft, Psychic Theft, Thieves' Fortune, Triton Shorethief, Thief of Blood, Scroll Thief, Rootwater Thief (this one is actually pretty sick), Notion Thief, Master Thief, Jhessian Thief, Ingenious Thief, Identity Thief, Grimoire Thief, Dream Thief, Daring Thief (since you have some bad cards, you can exchange them for better cards with an opponent), Bala Ged Thief, Aura Thief

jellowsmurf on Mill Everyone All the Time

To make the most of your self mill from Sidisi:

Kessig Cagebreakers gets you a pretty nice swing
Orc Sureshot spot removes about anything, but if that's just not fast enough for you... Noxious Ghoul can clear the board lol.

To help mill everyone else, and then take advantage of it:

Extract from Darkness, and Dread Summons mills everyone and helps your boardstate.
Bonehoard or Necrotic Ooze takes advantage of everyone filling their graveyards.

In mill decks I like having flashback as a mechanic so even if I mill it away, I can possibly get some use out of it:

Morgue Theft
Creeping Renaissance
Tracker's Instincts.

Threshold is a mechanic to consider too, most are kinda meh, but they can work pretty well in mill decks:

Stitch Together can get stuff back.
Decaying Soil might not be worth the set-up tbh, but idk maybe.
Battlefield Scrounger Makes for a pretty big beater
Also to a lesser extent, the Monster Squirrel: Krosan Beast.

sonnet666 on Jarad, Extreme Sub $40 Budget EDH

Traverse the Ulvenwald was in your budget for a while, but has been slowly creeping up.

Behold the Beyond is a combo deck's wet dream of a tutor, and it's sitting at a dollar.

Corrupted Grafstone is a nice mana rock for graveyard decks that gives you a turn 3 Jarad.

Crawling Sensation and Vessel of Nascency can self mill.

Cryptolith Rite has been dropping, so it might end up in your price range if it's an effect you want.

Deathcap Cultivator is a mana dork that likes graveyards.

Drownyard Temple can ramp from your graveyard.

If Eldritch Evolution and Grim Flayer ever drop in price they'd probably be good here.

Splendid Reclamation is enormous ramp in graveyard decks, and the price could go either way.

In general though, I noticed you have very little in the way of self mill for a deck that's so graveyard based. Hermit Druid is only about $2 and is phenomenal, and even if that's too expensive there are some great, cheap self mill cards like Nyx Weaver, Satyr Wayfinder, Undercity Informer, and Splinterfright you could use. As well as some great cards that play well with them, like Dread Return and Morgue Theft.

Hope that helps.

A few things from my Gitrog brewing.

But then you need Yawgmoth's Will in your hand, and you need to be using Skirge Familiar, which is already not as reliable as Putrid Imp or Phantasmagorian.

With self mill combos it's best when all the pieces function from the graveyard.

I do think Morgue Theft into Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed into Yawgmoth's Will makes a good back up plan. All the cards are useful on their own. If your combo gets interrupted and your library is empty, you can cast Krosan Reclamation in your next upkeep to get infinite mana and go off that way.

yavimaya_eldred, I'm not sure where your getting all that mana, or how that's supposed to be more consistent than Gitrog + discard outlet + dredge card, but thanks for bringing up Morgue Theft. That would probably work well as a backup card.

When thinking up combos I always try to keep three things in mind. In order of importance: How useful are the cards when they're not part of the combo. How few cards to I need to get the combo going? And how tutor-able are my combo pieces?

@sonnet666 Here's another combo option; Kermit makes tons of black mana (or infinite with a graveyard reshuffle effect) and dredges your deck with Dakmor Salvage+Skirge Familiar, then you reanimate/Morgue Theft either Bloodrite Invoker or a Necrotic Ooze using Invoker's ability and kill the table.

RocketGauntlet on Pauper 1-Land Spy Combo

xexs123 you mull until you hit either your forest or Land Grant, then ramp into Balustrade Spy to mill your entire library. Then you need to cast Songs of the Damned for around 20, flashback Morgue Theft to get a Simian Spirit Guide, flasback the other for Anarchist, cast it using the simian to get back Haunting Misery and cast it for lethal. The cards in the sideboard are for another, more complicated combo that loops gary over and over again.
