Depending on how it's used/ what's needed, Ravenous Chupacabra may be a better option than Shriekmaw. The latter is good because of the evoke and fear when it is on board, but the former doesn't have the targeting restrictions. Just out of curiosity is there a reason you left out Disciple of Bolas? He's a staple in most sac decks, and for good reason, so curious as to why he's not included in this build. I realize there's not a ton of beef to throw under the bus here, but just a thought.

Maybe some other red land hate or something, for pesky lands
Maybe Ramunap Excavator if you keep wheels, it works with things like Azusa and Oracle of Mul-Daya
Card draw (if you don't want wheels, but wheels are also fine)
Maybe a few board wipes like Crux of Fate
Poooosssible cuts include

I know and Shriekmaw perfomed nicely in the match I played. I am thankful for that suggestion. Korozda Guildmage would be interesting to keep in the battlefield the power of a Splinterfright that gets targeted to be destroyed... I will think about it. But as Ghoultree, even though it is better, I don't think it would be too different. So I will keep the Nemesis of Mortals, for now.
Thank you once again, PraetorDragoon!!

Yeah? Then how about abusing evoke? It works a little bit the same way: You play a creature, say Shriekmaw, for its evoke cost. You put its ETB ability on the stack, then the evoke sacrifice, and then you play Cloudshift or another instant-speed blink, and put that on the stack. Then you let the stack resolve. That goes back to front, so your creature blinks, and comes back as a new creature, and puts its ETB ability on the stack and you resolve it, and the creature counts as a new and un-evoked creature. The evoke sacrifice comes up next on the stack, but can't happen, since the creature is new and wasn't evoked into play. And then you get the ETB trigger again, as that was the first thing you put on the stack. There you go, a 3/2 evasive creature, and 2 Terrors - just be aware that with Shriekmaw, it is not a "may" ability - you are forced to kill non-black creatures, and it eats your own creatures, if opponent doesn't have any legal targets.

Thanks PraetorDragoon! 5 CMC is a bit worse, but I think I will change the Nekrataal and the Ravenous Chupacabra for some copies of the Shriekmaw, then. The point of them is just destroying the creatures, anyway.

Have fun playing!

Shriekmaw is a good card to add. Sure, it misses artefact/black creatures, but it has the advantage of Evoking, so it can act like a 2-mana sorcery speed removal that grows the Yard.
