These are all token generators I found that don't need any assistance but there are other things to think about. That Cmdr says "whenever a creature with power 1 or less dies return it to play under YOUR control". So this is where you can get creative and simply make your opponents creatures power 1 or less and kill them to bring them back to play under YOUR control.
So right away the first thing I think of is how can we turn your Cmdr into a Grave Betrayal! So cool.

So a morbid-based deck needs three types of cards:
1/ Creatures that die easily and/or for a benefit
2/ Ways to kill your own creatures and/or the opponent's
3/ Morbid payoffs
For the second one, a simple Viscera Seer gives a small random bonus.
Additionally, here a couple of lists for a Mazirek sacrifice commander I compiled, maybe some of your new cards are there:
This is more EDH oriented, but there are so many cards, that something is bound to catch your attention.

Wow, I'm amazed by all the input so quickly. Certainly some food for thought here. Huge thanks to everyone. I did realize that Demon of Death's Gate would not work with the original concept since it lists specifically sac'ing black creatures and eldrazi are either colorless or devoid. Granted, there's better demons that might support this concept like maybe Xathrid Demon, Reaper from the Abyss, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder and/or Harvester of Souls. Though focusing on eldrazi with emerge in conjunction with scion producers and cards like Grave Pact, Quest for the Gravelord, and Skirsdag High Priest might be better. Suppose more like running demon support rather than demon themselves. The deck would be mostly casual and aim for just a fun, interesting way to use the 2 archetypes regardless.

Random cards that could be good for the tribe or a creature dying

I may be wrong, since I did't test this deck enough, but I don't think things like Cover of Darkness are necessary. I do not attack with the clerics but with the Demons from Skirsdag High Priest. In order to have them, I have to have a creature dying in a turn: thus, the Selfless Spirit or the Orzhov Pontiff (killing your opponent creatures when it enters the game, and when the Haunt ability is activated with Starlit Sanctum).
The Demons from Skirsdag High Priest are 4/4 flying creatures, and I may have 6 flying 4/4 in turn 6: 1 in turn 3, 1 in turn 4, 2 in turn 5, 2 in turn 6. Those are to be boosted to 5/5 creatures with Zealous Persecution.
It is worth to note that your opponent should not normally have any blocking creature with all the Orzhov Pontiff, the Zealous Persecution and the Make Obsolete. If a Swords to Plowshares aims one Demon, the Mother of Runes or a Selfless Spirit will protect it.

Hi Se7enfoot... Thanks for your comment on my B/W Clerics deck.
I have several suggestions for your deck, but before I present to you let me first address your comment.
Although your deck is B/W like the one you commented on, they meant to be different. Yours is a hybrid between life-gain deck and an aggro deck. Mine is meant to be exclusively aggro.
I have a hybrid life-gain aggro cleric deck, white the Daru Spiritualist and Shuko combo, but it is mono-white - have a look : http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/protection-clerics/?cb=1532856807.
Now, about my suggestions:
I noticed that you only have four one-mana creatures, coincidentally the Dark Supplicant only. That means that you'll never be able to have Scion of Darkness in the second turn. I would advise to add four one-mana clerics, like Mother of Runes or Soul Warden.
I don't see the use of Mikaeus, the Lunarch in a sacrificial deck. Instead, the sacrifices would acvtivate the morbid ability of Skirsdag High Priest. I would advise them instead. Plus, they are cheaper. In a way...
The Doomed Necromancer is nice, especially if you want to bring back again a Dark Supplicant and invoke another Scion of Darkness. But if you only have a Scion of Darkness, it is of no use. Put two Scion of Darkness, and one less Doomed Necromancer. Notice that the cost of the Scion of Darkness cycling ability is the same as Doomed Necromancer... so if you ever do not need the Scion in hand, just cycle it...
21 lands are not enough lands. I accept minimum 23 lands in a deck, but 24 seems the most adequate. Now, you have 21 lands, where one of them (Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth) gives no mana whatsoever. So, effectively, you have 20 lands. I would replace Urborg with two more useful lands.

yeah i can see that card being fairly useful in this deck. ill add it in. namely tap effects of Skirsdag High Priest as well as Skullclamp , drawing with Mentor of the Meek and small fuel for Ashnod's Altar.
