Need more things to sacrifice in my opinion. Add Bitterblossom, or for a more budget option, Spawning Pit, Breeding Pit, Ophiomancer, Infernal Genesis, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, or Nuisance Engine. Archdemon of Unx could be OK.

Also, Gonti's Machinations is pretty bad, and Final Reward should just be a Hero's Downfall or some other better removal spell.

After some play testing, I removed Aetherflux Reservoir & Gutless Ghoul because they felt slightly off theme, and too much of a closed combo. In their place I added Temporal Extortion, Slaughter Pact. As well as putting Spawning Pit back in for more free sac outlets, as well as instant speed blockers, and Thief of Blood makes its way to back into the main board as an alternate win condition.

the answer is yes.

this card works almost exactly like Melira, Sylvok Outcast with persist creatures. so if you have Murderous Redcap, or Kitchen Finks along with a sac outlet like say Spawning Pit. the result would be either infinite damage or infinite life respectively.

Like the deck idea!

Many artifacts double as creatures. One way to expand the theme could with more cards that care about creatures dying, such as Dictate of Erebos, Black Market and Deathbringer Thoctar. All still trigger, even if you get the card back.

A few more cards to help get those creatures back Victimize, Oversold Cemetery, Phyrexian Reclamation and Haunted Crossroads.

Finally some nice little extra sacrifice effects could be tasty too. Stronghold Assassin, Viscera Seer, Spawning Pit, Ashnod's Altar

Vedalken Engineer could also help as another artifact mana source.

Some of my favorite colorless sac outlets are: Altar of Dementia, Blasting Station, Helm of Possession, Phyrexian Altar, and Spawning Pit

How has howling mine worked for you? I know card draw is slim in mono but giving cards to your opponents seems iffy. Maybe try out an Outpost Siege? Kinda risky if you hit a dragon you can't cast, but still good card draw.

Maybe add a Mind Stone, so you can crack it after ramping? maybe take out thought vessel, how many times do you need no max hand size? With that in mind, maybe replace reliquary tower for a mountain as well. get more bonuses with mana doublers and valakut.

A different sacrifice outlet could be Spawning Pit, maybe swap out the gargadon?

how has dictate of the twin gods worked out? If you like the card maybe a cheaper version in Furnace of Rath could be good?

enpc thank you very much for your isnight. I added some of the cards you suggested and will be testing out. For the ones that you find to be somehow off, are there any other budget options you would suggest? Maybe Field of Souls, Spawning Pit or even Hornet Queen for extra tokens to sacrifice?

In this 'stall to combo' style deck, I'd cut the Genesis Chamber. Most cards you're running aren't going to let you successfully swarm an opponent down with 1/1 tokens, (unless discard spells are the only spells in your meta) another lifegain creature or spell would let you stall better even then in almost all cases. I'd consider cutting them for another two kitchen finks and a sac outlet like Spawning Pit or Blasting Station to enable the anafenza/thune sac combo.

Alternatively Blessed Alliance provides a powerful, versatile scaling spell to help survive until you can combo. Hope this helps, Good luck and happy brewing!
