Maybe run a Murderer's Axe in place of the Neglected Heirloom  Flip?? Idk. I love this deck though, upvote for the bloodfeasters!

I would recommend Murderer's Axe primarily to be a madness enabler and to buff one of your creatures while you're at it. Drunau Corpse Trawler shines in these decks not only for spawning a 2/2 body in addition to it, but you also have a way to stop aggro: deathtouch. You pay only mana symbol 2mana symbol b to give a Zombie deathtouch and that will serve one of two purposes, depending whose turn it is: 1.) It will give you an unblocked attack with a large Zombie, such as the Masterpiece. 2.) It works well to make a Zombie an ambush blocker, putting an end to an attacker quite easily, especially with all those 2/2 Zombies you're spawning (Conveniently, the Trawler spawned one). Other than that, it looks great! I'd run it any day of the week! If you want to see some Zombies in Commander (hasn't been EMN updated) my Commander deck will be posted here------>B/U Grimgrin Zombie DeckTell me what you think of it. Thanks and hope this helped.

I don't know if it has a place for you but Murderer's Axe is a nice discard outlet, once you get it in to play, it's free to discard at will just equipping it to something else back and forth.

Might allow you to discard more effectively?

I have mulled over this for a while and I really cannot see how Abundance + Undercity Informer mill your whole library the way Dakmor Salvage + The Gitrog Monster + a discard outlet do. Could you walk me through it?

The list I am am working on only has the Gitrog + Dakmor + Discard outlet way to mill yourself but

Even with only one combo, there is enough redundancy here that I don't think you need more.

Also worth mentioning: comboing off with Skirge Familiar does not truly give you infinite mana if you don't want to play an Ulamog, the Infinite Gyro (but I dislike that plan since then you can only play three discard outlets to go infinite in some measure - Wild Mongrel, Volrath's Dungeon and the familiar itself). You get realistically 40-50, sometimes less if you start dredging 6 over and over to find Dakmor Salvage. That's low enough where relying on Exsanguinate for the kill might be unwise - somebody at the table is playing Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and suddenly you can't kill them? It's an issue.

Then again, my solution of Dread Defiler throwing a Lord of Extinction at them suffers from the same problem.

Maybe one could use a "Four Horsemen" approach i.e. we play the Ulamog, the Infinite Gyro and rely on the extra draws from Dakmor Salvage to eventually draw it and proceed to put the whole deck in the graveyard a few hundreds dredges in instead of a few dozens? That might be the way to go if we want to have the option to cast large Exsanguinates occasionally.
