I did some playing around with your deck and this is the best i can really come up with for a synergistic deck. The main problem i had was getting shirei out fast

Creature (22) 4x Augur of Skulls 4x Bile Urchin 4x Blood Artist 3x Necroskitter 4x Qarsi Sadist 3x Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker Instant (12) 4x Force of Despair 4x Grim Return 4x Tragic Slip Sorcery (4) 4x Spark Harvest Land (20) 3x Mortuary Mire 3x Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx 14x Swamp

Maybeboard Artifact (1) 1x Ensnaring Bridge Creature (4) 4x Cruel Celebrant

I'd replace a couple Llanowar Elves with Elves of Deep Shadow . If you can get the Wayward Swordtooth that'll help with extra lands, but that card is expensive, but then you can run 1 copy of Mortuary Mire . Llanowar Wastes are cheaper options than the Overgrown Tomb , and probably won't hurt you in the long run. Another great card for this is Autumnal Gloom  Flip, to mill excess lands (the goal is to go off with your combo, and never have to flip it).

Cool deck if you can get the combo to go.

Mana Vault on turn one allows you to cast your general turn two. I imagine one of the challenges with this general is his costing 5, as lack of access to another color means your options for ramp are rather limited. By the same token, Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Chrome Mox and the Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo are your friends as well.

Nausea is good for you, as it gives you a way to kill off a bunch of little creatures and rebuy their ETB triggers. As Non-Linear points out, Grave Pact is good in your deck. Nausea makes it into a one-sided board wipe.

God-Eternal Bontu seems kind of absurd, with all them creatures you can feed him. With all the sac-ing you're likely to be doing, you might have luck with Harvester of Souls .

I see Demonic Tutor is in your 'Maybeboard.' I feel that this should be in the main deck of any black EDH deck if at all possible. It simply gets whatever you need more efficiently than anything else can.

Qarsi Sadist allows you to drain an opponent for two at each end step, if you have it exploit itself each time and Shirei stays on the board.

Night of Souls' Betrayal is an interesting thought. With a carful build, it could probably bust the deck wide open, as it auto kills each 1/1 and then brings them right back each end step. Pairing it with something like Burglar Rat , Skyscanner , Pilgrim's Eye , Black Cat or other such creatures seems simply rude as ****.

Finally, regarding the lands, I haven't had much luck with Crypt of Agadeem . You might want to replace that, Mortuary Mire and Memorial to Folly with basic lands. I also don't think Ghost Quarter is very good in EDH, unless your meta plays some powerful utility lands like The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale or Glacial Chasm . Ancient Tomb is a better Temple of the False God , but it is a more expensive card.

Go 5 color with Child of Alara as the commander. Remember it has to go to the graveyard to trigger, so use reanimation effects or recursion like Memorial to Folly , Mortuary Mire , Volrath's Stronghold or Haunted Fengraf to reuse Child. Try to use indestructible cards or utility lands to get all of the effects you want, probably with cards that synergize with lands.

1 doom blade or agony warp out for one more Echoing Decay, cause of meta reasons. And 1-2 Evincar's Justice in 75? Maybe 1-1 main-side? Or semi flicker combo Crypt Rats + Mortuary Mire (and you need mnemonic wall instead of archeomancers)

Have you tried Augurs? They are so sweet in this deck. Yea, they don't hit creatures and lands... But most of the time we just want to catch spells, not permanents.

And about chainer's edict - no, this is just 2 mana kill+draw card. Diabolic is "fine", but chainer is card advantage.

triproberts12, thanks for looking at the deck and for all your suggestions! I am trying to keep this list as close to $30 as possible, so unfortunately a lot of your suggestions won't make it into the list.

I've used both Dark Prophecy and Grim Haruspex effects in Chainer, and they are great! I've never seen Midnight Reaper before, so thanks for showing him to me.

Like you suggested, Ghoulcaller's Bell could be a great turn one drop. Thanks!

The reason I run Ashes to Ashes is because it hits two creatures and can deal with indestructible nonsense. I like Mark of the Oni because even if I don't have a demon out to keep the steal, I prob have a sac outlet out to sac the stolen creature (which also deals with indestructibles). You're right about Mortuary Mire being a little weird. I'd be ok with or without that card in Chainer. I actually LOVE Wanderer's Twig -type cards in all my non-green budget decks. They are a turn one play that thins the deck and makes sure I hit all my land drops. I've built a lot of $30 decks, and I find that securing land drops is one of the best things a budget deck can do in its first few turns.

I would add cards that give you advantage through all the sacrificing and creature removal you have going on. Dark Prophecy would be my first add, and you might be able to pretty easily trade for a $3 Midnight Reaper , being from a currently printed set, and if Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos are too pricey, Butcher of Malakir and Grim Haruspex could be good substitutes, especially since you have the means to reanimate him after a wrath. Black Market is a pretty unique effect, although Revel in Riches is a good win-con, if not as powerful on the mana-source side.

I would also look into adding Bojuka Bog . You might also want a little mill to speed things up, since you're light on win conditions. Dread Summons is a good late-game punch, while Ghoulcaller's Bell could be a good turn-1 play for a deck without a lot of early plays. It That Betrays could be a good win condition, too, if you're forcing sacrifices.

As for cuts, I don't think you have enough demons to consistently turn on Mark of the Oni . I would reconsider Ashes to Ashes , since you want reanimation targets, not to exile creatures. Mortuary Mire is a little weird, since you like to play things on the cheap from the yard, if anything, it's working backwards against what your deck wants to be doing. Wanderer's Twig and Traveler's Amulet . I feel like I'm missing something, but it makes no sense to me. Armillary Sphere , less so, but I would run Myriad Landscape and Isolated Watchtower first.
