Overseer of the Damned Discussion

Thanks for the comment MizzMizz. It's been a while since I've updated this deck online and honestly I probably hadn't sleeved a new card into it in over a year until this week.
Both the Overseer and Mike almost always felt like crap draws, leading them to hangout in my hand. I'm really happy with their replacements, Archfiend can be a chore to get out some times but it never disappoints and Yawgs will is one of those cards that really needs no explanation.
That being said, I do watch for cards to fit in here as they are released. after doing some research after your comment i noticed that somehow I let Syr Konrad, the Grim get past me. I'ts a total fit for the deck, rewarding me for doing most of what I enjoy doing with this deck; filling the yard.
So I went ahead and added some of my other favorites in to complement it: Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Merciless Executioner. I'm still looking for the cut to put Buried Alive back in to capitalize on Syr Konrad even more. Buried alive may even replace Yahenni after testing, I'm skeptical at this point that it will carry it's weight.
Anyways thanks! Let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to answer them!

You have more chance of executing the ramp than you do the cheese tutors and Crypt Ghast serves two purposes which is hot chocolate
For destroy or removal look at Go for the Throat | Doom Blade | Bone Splinters | Disembowel | Sinister Concoction | Cast Down | Dreadbore | Terminate | Murderous Compulsion | Walk the Plank | Victim of Night.
I'd probably recommend 4 copies of either Go for the Throat or Walk the Plank because they get rid of mostly everything.
Mostly just try and figure out what demon/s you want to build your deck around then choose cards that complement it

My issue with Call to the Grave in this list is it'll force me to sac my Commander, and other cards that generate a lot of value the longer they're on the board, like Grave Titan, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet & Overseer of the Damned so I figured it didn't really fit.

So, multimedia, I just got the madness commander deck today, and there are so many cards that I could add to the deck (such as Overseer of the Damned , Beacon of Unrest , Archfiend of Spite , and more)! Having this, I will soon be changing the deck from Rakdos' Crazy Demon Party to Chainer's Demon Summoning Possie! So, in your humble opinion, what should I cut/add?

I get the force sacrifice theme but do not really see many creatures YOU would want to sacrifice. I count 4 creatures who once they enter I would be happy to let die to trigger something or force sacrifice (WS, VE, SD, and G). This is not counting Sakura-Tribe Elder, co. because I assume you will want to sack them to their own effect most time.
Creatures who are happy to die and come back or create tokens to be sacrificed are: Reassembling Skeleton , Bloodsoaked Champion , Squee, the Immortal , Open the Graves , Xathrid Necromancer , Overseer of the Damned , etc. all give you extra bodies to sacrifice while keeping your enablers free.
I am surprised to see so little graveyard recursion either, some to consider: Phyrexian Reclamation , Palace Siege , Animate Dead , Whisper, Blood Liturgist , Phyrexian Delver , etc. are good for getting back killed creatures or reanimating high-CMC ones (@ 4.03 that is pretty HIGH).
For ramp I would add in more creatures who self-sacrifice to grab basics (and add more basics in place of tap lands) to kill 2-birds with one stone. Burnished Hart , Wild-Field Scarecrow , Dawntreader Elk , Pilgrim's Eye , Skittering Surveyor , and of course Solemn Simulacrum .
Such a theme screams to have more aristocrat value pieces added: Zulaport Cutthroat , Poison-Tip Archer , Fecundity , Outpost Siege , Harvester of Souls , and Skullclamp , etc. all make every death benefit you that much more.
You don't seem to be playing any counter spells, even for protection with such high-costed creatures, I would add more via Heroic Intervention , Mizzium Skin , Wrap in Vigor , Undying Evil , etc. I like Kaya's Ghostform but it telegraphs to opponents that this will need to be killed 2x, and a truce may be made to ensure Sheoldred dies. One of the above is "sneakier."

Muldrotha is one of my favorites. I think some auto-inlcudes for a zombie tribal would have to be Ghoulcaller Gisa , Endless Ranks of the Dead , Overseer of the Damned and Black Market . I've rebuilt my muldrotha deck three times, and finally found a build I absolutely love. It's a sac-for-effect them but uses token generators to build an army of zombies and saprolings that can be used as sacrifices for fun stuff. If you're interested, check it out.
