Some notable land cards you could add are Exploration and Oracle of Mul Daya. World Shaper is amazing for recursion since you can sacrifice it easily. Skullclamp is great for card draw if you are sacrificing. Mana Echoes gives ridiculous ramp for a token strategy.

Life and Limb gives infinite tokens and infinite landfall with Sporemound, and you can sacrifice Sporemound to end the loop. Living Plane and Nature's Revolt are also good for animating your lands. These can give infinite mana with Aggravated Assault. Massacre Wurm kills opponents' lands if animated, and burns them when their creatures die.

Pitiless Plunderer gives additional mana when sacrificing creatures. Zulaport Cutthroat is helpful to drain opponents from sacrificing.

Skirge Familiar is a good way to ramp up mana for your Exsanguinate, especially if you are discarding Dakmor Salvage and you have Gitrog.

Amulet of Vigor is helpful if you have lots of tapped lands and effects that put lands in play tapped.

If you want to go all in on treasures you could add Ruthless Knave and March of the Drowned

You can sac Dire Fleet Hoarder too Ruthless Knave, then return Dire Fleet Hoarder and another pirate to your hand. Then repeat the process.

Something else you could add would be Pitiless Plunderer so when something dies it gives you treasure.

I am running a similar deck in mtg arena made it budget black, white zombies with two copies of the newest Liliana, Untouched By Death. There is a combo with her,Dread Wanderer, Pitiless Plunderer and a sac outlet best being free.

@Murphy77: Hey, thanks for your suggestion. I really like your deck. But unfortunately Bontu's Monument won't reduce the cost of the activated ability of Reassembling Skeleton, so this combination won't go infinite. All in all, I would have to add too many new cards (Pitiless Plunderer, Bontu's Monument and Oathsworn Vampire) to the deck, so that it would interfere with the orginal plan of my deck too much.

I just can't imagine this deck without Pitiless Plunderer and Bontu's Monument and the endless loops that they create. See Dark Looping 2

Madcookie on A dilemma with priority.

I noticed this question was still marked as unanswered a few days in a row and decided to check it out. First there is no combination of cards that add 4 mana from a creature dying. The only thing I've found that comes remotely close is Carnival of Souls which triggers on entering and will net a total of 3 mana if the created token was sacked with Ashnod's Altar, combined with Pitiless Plunderer, which also adds a treasure token to be sacked. In any way this seems overly complicated way to go infinite. Are you sure you and your brother understand the rules for sacking and the situation is not as follows "I'll sacrfice my token to Ashnod's Altar, then while this is on the stack I'll sacrifice the same token again and net myself 4 colorless mana".

On another note as already said if he holds priority he can't do anything else and will block the game. Also since you gain 1 life for whenever a creature dies (possibly from Deathgreeter) your brother can't kill you since he also does 1 damage for each token dying and the game will end in a draw. But this is the case ONLY if he manages to prevent you from killing Slimefoot. You say you have 12 black mana, but the question is can your brother create tokens more times than you can pay and remove counters to kill his commander. Regenerating Slimefoot does nothing since the ability with the counters give Slimefoot -X/-X and if it resolves he will die as a state-based action.

Hope that clears the situation

Hello Friend,

Ill jump right into it. I do like whats going on here.

I would suggest playing Revel in Riches because of your inclusion Grave Pact and Pitiless Plunderer. I have won a few games "accidentally" with it.

Torment of Hailfire and Death Cloud are good for the discard theme.

Personally I find Burnished Hart a slow card that I was never happy to see. Dark Ritual and Bubbling Muck are good ramp cards as replacement.

All in all, I like the additions you have over the more Stax I run. I hope that I did help a bit. If ya ever have questions hit me up.

goodair thanks for commenting. I have a Kessig Wolf Run and a Sarkhan Vol on the way in the mail. I have been looking at Vicious Shadows for awhile and debaiting that. Captivating Crew looks amazing!

I have a Pitiless Plunderer.
