Rot Shambler Discussion

to be completely honest, I think crypt of agadeem is just too slow and bad to make work in any format except kitchen table casual
That said, you could use a few more ways to get cards in your graveyard, and you need to max out on black creatures wherever possible. The profane commands could probably be switched out for some big dumb black creature(s), I'm not sure what might be good and budget off the top of my head.
Also consider adding anywhere from 2-8 black cycling creatures for powering up crypt and getting more dredge triggers. Idk if Street Wraith is in budget, but there's also stuff like Horror of the Broken Lands, Monstrous Carabid, Architects of Will, Lurching Rotbeast
I also just realized this list has zero interaction with the opponent outside of profane command... This deck is far too slow to win without disrupting the opponent. At least look for some black creatures that can interact with your opponent in some way like Shriekmaw or Big Game Hunter or something, idk if there are any that are good in modern. If not then you'll have to jam some fatal push/abrupt decay/inquisition of kozilek.

I'd replace Festering Goblin or Festering Mummy with Bond Beetle as I find it hard to justify playing cards that give -1/-1 until end of turn on opponent creature unless there's some specific benifit.
Why aren't you playing Bontu the Glorified? He was made for decks like this.
Brindle Boar for some quick lifegain.
And then there's creatures with undying and unearth that are easily brought back for a second sacrifice.
I have a casual deck titled Suicidal Thoughts that focuses on sacrificing. Check it out if you're interested.

this is just a start but what I would keep in mind with this deck is can it benefit from sac or can it sac on its own? if not it probably should not be in this deck.

Yes. Yahenni, Undying Partisan would fit the deck nicely. Just keep in mind that you need to find a balance of...
- Creatures you want to sacrifice
- Ways to sacrifice them
- Interaction(kill spells) and card advantage
- "Dying" synergies like Zulaport Cutthroat and Rot Shambler
The only way you'll find the balance you like is by playtesting, but I feel like this is how I would prioritize the list. Maybe look for cards that can cover multiple bullets like Catacomb Sifter, Scrapheap Scrounger, Bone Splinters, etc., that way you can tighten up your list.

Bloodflow Connoisseur is probably better than Rot Shambler as it acts as its own sacrifice outlet. Maybe run both? I think you would need to try both out and see which one works better. Other cards to look at are Viscera Seer, Nantuko Husk, Blasting Station. Might also want to consider adding Blood Artist and Grim Haruspex for extra value.

I like this deck a whole lot. it's the sort of deck I like to play. I made a budget version of this for those that may not want to spend over 100 $ on a deck. it has Winding Constrictor for extra +1/+1 counters, so Rot Shambler grownes twice as fast for every death. I might look into putting some From Beyond in the deck or at least in the sideboard.
here is the deck by the way http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/golgari-death-triggers-budget/

I will definitely try using the Rot Shambler in the deck as an alternate win condition as a 4,000,000,000/4,000,000,000 creature is sure to make people pause.
