Oh! Thanks to cards mentioned in the previous posts, here's an infinite version of my suggestion. It's less roundabout than PhotogenicParasympathetic's combo, and slightly riskier as you have to wait until the first opponent's combat step:
Cast Wake the Dead targeting Gonti, Priest of Gix, and Archaeomancer (returning Wake the Dead to hand), then sacrifice them all to Ashnod's Altar. You now have 6BBB in your mana pool. Recast Wake the Dead for 3BB. Rinse and repeat. Infinite mana. Exile and play all other libraries.

I recently came across a deck archetype called Noble and I instantly fell in love with the play style. Being able to use any rare/mythic card as a "ready at all times" opens up a ton of new possibilities for deck construction. It does limit the number of uncommons and you can only use 1 rare/mythic rare in the entire deck, but this doesn't mean that it's bad.
I'm in the works of a couple, but my Recurring Glass Cannon is one I'm really excited about. I instantly turned to Priest of Gix, Blood Artist, and a couple of sac outlets. However, when I started to play test, it just doesn't seem to work the way I want it to in my mind. I'm not sure what to do. Does anyone have any tips/tricks to improving this deck?

Hi. I'm trying to put a deck together for a 6 player free for all this weekend, and I want to use a playset of Carrion as the win condition. I have a bunch of other maggot-themed cards I want to use too, but mostly I want to trample everyone down with the tokens from Carrion. Has anyone ever done this, or have any suggestions? Right now I'm pumping up Mishra's Factory and Priest of Gix with Rancor and Death Pit Offering but it's just too slow. I need to be able to keep up with opponents who can play power 9 often. Maybe Parallel Evolution would work? I just need MORE maggot tokens, faster!

If you want, I can go through by types & make suggestions for cuts/swaps. Athreos is a fun commander & has a lot of potential for abuse, but staying away from goodstuff is key to that, IMO.

I DO!!! I tried to break Ever After when I got one at prerelease. Priest of Gix will make infinite mana on its own with Ashnod's Altar & Rune-Scarred Demon/Sidisi, Undead Vizier bit. No need for all those pesky tokens. Phyrexian Altar will get you there, provided you run the tokens & Parallel Lives/Doubling Season. Brood Monitor too.

Recover819Thank you for the suggestions! I will consider Conspiracy since I run mono-black, not white-black deck. Theme is strong for me and if I make a white cleric deck, it will be a separate one :)
SHepherd of Rot didn't work that fine with me but Vile Deacon I was running 2x in those games and they were kinda useful.
I learnt the HARD way that I need Priest of Gix in order to get speed which was my main counterpart, not enough speed to trigger all my goodies.

ugh, BW removal is simply the best, even in black monocolored removal is pitiful in comparison.
Inexpensive things to consider
More expensive things to consider
Things I would not have
Unless you use them primarily to combo, the noncreature transmute cards.
