Ayy, thanks for commenting on my deck! looking through yours i have a couple suggestions of things that work out REALLY well with Vish Bitter Ordeal being one of the more surprising, I've chain sacrificed to where i hit every card left in my opponents libraries (for essentially an easier Jace ult that hits each opponent because of how busted the card is worded) Bitterblossom Ophiomancer Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton are literally just "free" pumps to the Vish that don't stop putting in work. :)

Sure, those are good, but they only let you sacrifice a creature once, plus you have to use mana for it. Viscera Seer is repeatable and FREE, which means if you get the Nether Traitor loop going you can drain 1 or more for every mana you have, and since you can make a ton with Crypt of Agadeem you'd have the potential to drain your opponent down from 20 in a single turn. Plus you get to scry infinitely to find a removal spell or something if you need it, or if you use Nantuko Husk you can make a huge beater to get in a chunk of damage.

Nether Traitor and the drain effects are a neat combo, but you don't actually have any repeatable sac outlets in your deck, which is what you need to make that combo work. Viscera Seer does that job nicely, and you can also play Nantuko Husk as a backup sac outlet. I'd replace all the Vampire Cutthroats and a couple Thrull Parasite or a Grave Pact and a Dark Prophecy with them. They'll add a lot more explosiveness to your deck for sure.

Btw, your deck fits in an archetype called Aristocrats. It's a hub you can add, and it would sum your deck up a lot more nicely than Aggro/Burn/Combo/Control (not that it really matters) ;)

I like the list. Have you considered cutting the curious obsession and swapping in Thoughtseize and a negate/alliance to net three sideboard slots?

Black also has some notable spirits to look at- Bloodghast, Nether Traitor and Demigod of Revenge from the graveyard, Dimir Infiltrator for transmute, and Will-o'-the-Wisp as a resilient chump blocker. I've tried to get a mardu Shared Animosity spirits list working with Eidolon of the Great Revel, but it needs a particular meta to run smoothly. This has a lot more resillience.

Just wanted to ask you about Bloodghast. Was just wondering why he is the only recurrable creature in the list. Seems like you would want one or two more similar effects for consistency, like Reassembling Skeleton or Nether Traitor. I definitely get that he has the best lands matter synergy, but I feel adding a couple more creatures like him would add more synergy with your commander and Skullclamp. I guess the question really is; is running bloodghast worth it? You have a ton of token generators, maybe just run Ophiomancer instead? Let me know what you think. Cheers!

I'd recommend leaning a bit more into the sacrifice theme with cards like Farhaven Elf, Eternal Witness, Anger, Nether Traitor, Bloodghast, and Bloodsoaked Champion to help ease out an otherwise rather high curve, and to give you some easy sacrifice fodder for the big man himself.

Lurking Predators, and Panharmonicon are personal favourites of mine in permanent heavy decks as you tend to have a lot of creatures with enter effects, such as Woodfall Primus, Terastodon, Solemn Simulacrum, or Wall of Blossoms.

Birthing Pod is an obvious auto-include if your plan is to cheat in large creatures, as you can then use those large creatures to cheat in larger creatures, over and over again.

Anyways, that's all I got. Good luck with the deck, and I hope it all works out for you in your games.
