Oversold Cemetery Discussion
1 week ago
If you are going for more recursion, here is some you might want to think about:
Oversold Cemetery is really good, maybe a small self-mill or just combating some of your creatures in to get it to activate is pretty good.
Nim Deathmantle is good for one single creature you want to keep out, if it dies just 4 mana brings it back to your field equipped.
Rise of the Dark Realms is a card used to help go wide, get all creatures from all graveyards to your field.
Now I see you have some sac elements, so besides recursion you could use a bit of value out of sacs by using Grave Pact effects, which would also be Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir. If it helps, fill the graveyard, with self-mill and pull what you want with the recursion options you have. If you want to go more voltron like your latest update says, make sure you got something you can always bring back and re-equip everything to. A good choice would be something like Reassembling Skeleton. If he bites the dust, a bit of mana brings him back and a bit more to give him something to make him a threat once again.

Oversold Cemetery might let you refill your hand after discarding.

Sidisi is a she...
You want to keep the creature count high for sidisi, and she only really cares about A creature hitting the bin
I would recommend cutting artifact ramp, and shift to creature ramp if you like.
I'm a big fan of aftermath and flashback spells in the graveyard, they work well with Sidisi.
Explore works amazingly with sidisi.
I always find Grim Backwoods to be far too slow, and sultai decks in general have enough ways to generate card advantage.
Drownyard Temple may for your bill as a value land.
Phyrexian Reclamation, Oversold Cemetery and Meren of Clan Nel Toth can help generate card advantage and are a good bit cheaper than palace siege. It's up to young you how much of that effect you would like.
Torrent Elemental is a good card for helping sidisi attack and is nice to delve away.
Or to bring it back with Whip of Erebos
I also play Ongoing Investigation in my sidisi deck, but it's inclusion is probably die to my love of the card.
There are a lot of similar effects, but if they look at the top of you library, and gp to the grave after, they will trigger sidisi. I'm sure you know this, but it's something to keep in mind. I'm still not sure the correct number of those effects to run in my sidisi deck.
And you could run more dredgers.
Hope that helps.

Even though I really like cards like Impact Tremors and Warstorm Surge, I only want to see these types of cards if I'm close to winning the game. Let me clarify. In general, I only tutor Purphoros, God of the Forge if I can't swing in for the win because of some kind of effect (ex: Sphere of Safety, Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, etc). Other than that, Purphoros is just a cute ping for 2 or 4. I feel like I don't produce enough creatures per turn to justify adding more of these effects. However,

looks to abuse Purphoros-like effects because it has multiple creatures entering per turn.
I think Oversold Cemetery is a card for a different type of deck. I don't really mind board wipes that much because I have multiple forms of recursion. I've tried Fleshbag Marauder in the deck before and I wasn't pleased with it. I think it's because 1.) I can't actually target the creature I want and 2.) it really only hurts voltron players (which at my LGS, that's me) unless Fleshbag Marauder enters the field multiple times. Thank you so much for the suggestions and stopping by!

There have been a lot of suggestions already but have you considered something along the lines of Impact Tremors or Warstorm Surge that would give you more value for your creatures coming into play. or maybe Oversold Cemetery to get your creatures back into your hand after a board wipe, and if you get a sac outlet into play you could get recurring value on all these creatures. If you go down that route I suggest Grave Pact like effects, and Fleshbag Marauder to really mess up their day. Good luck with your deck!

Not sure how low you mean by budget, but alright... W shall assume you mean under $10/card... With that in mind, here are a few cards I'm running in mine that are in that price range:
Carnage Altar is essentually an additional backoods.Zombie Infestation's a good discard outlet, and produces you some nice tokens for sacrifice.Beacon of Unrest can be a strictly better Rise.Oversold Cemetery is quite nice as well.Krosan Grip can help shut down infinite combos.Pawn of Ulamog and Awakening Zone double as sac fodder AND mana acceleration. To make matters worse for the peasants you wish to torment,they trigger Grave Pact when you use them for mana. =3
Finally, Solemn Simulacrum is an all-around staple in Commander that Meren is espeially fond of. I hope that helps. :)

Okay- lets get you set up.
Your commander is cool, and his main thing going for him is providing constant removal. His main downside is his mana cost and the fact that he costs 9 mana the second time you cast him. Personally I would use Vona, Butcher of Magan to have better removal and a lower cost. Don't worry about her life loss- you start at 40 and have the two best colors for lifegain.
You're creatures look really good, but I would use only vampires, (although leave Crypt Ghast in because he's awesome, and only keep Ulamog in there if you have mill in your playgroup). Other than that, throw out the non vamp creatures (should be 2 of them) and add in Sanctum Seeker and Necropolis Regent.
You do have some weaker vampires that could use some tweaking. Dark Impostor and Falkenrath Noble are fun, but require too much effort to really impact the board. Thief of Blood can also mess up your board. I would replace these with Liliana of the Dark Realms, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis.
One of the advantages of playing Black White is your access to enchantments. You're missing a few staples, including Exquisite Blood (To go infinite with Sanguine Bond), Phyrexian Arena, and Axis of Mortality goes very very well with Vona. I would get rid of some boardwipes to make room. Can't forget the classic Ghostly Prison as well.
Your removal is powerful, but much too expensive. I would take out Iona's Judgment, Grisly Spectacle, Pillory of the Sleepless and Mindcrank to make room for Path to Exile, Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate and Unmake.
If you find that the loss of life is too much, I would take out Trepanation Blade and Oversold Cemetery and Anowon, the Ruin Sage to fit in Sanguine Sacrament, Debt to the Deathless, and Boon Reflection
