Spoils of Blood Discussion

Slaughter could be interesting since it not only triggers Toshiro, but it has buyback so you can recur it indefinitely (even if you cast it using Toshiro's ability). Imps' Taunt works in a similar way and is an interesting form of disruption for mono-black.

here is some cards that I use, Palace Siege and Spoils of Blood or Skirsdag High Priest and Graveblade Marauder or Accursed Witch Flip and maybe Call for Unity or Congregate and Imposing Sovereign and Doomed Dissenter and Absolute Grace or finally Phyrexian Rebirth .

I will say I'm listing some awesome cards, Obliterator in particular, but 4 black in a 4 color deck is nigh impossible to get consistently. The Lieges are good too but their focus on color holds them back in this deck. The other 3 are more along the lines of 'neat' meaning they are certainly cool but are either too inefficient or not impactful enough.
Hope that helps open up a little space.

I may be crazy, but it seems like pairing Young Pyromancer with buyback spells might be interesting with Prossh. Fanning the Flames could take the place of Burn at the Stake, Lab Rats or Wurmcalling or Sprout Swarm could take the place of Spoils of Blood, Reiterate is just plain good, Disturbed Burial has it's use, and Haze of Rage is a possible win con.

If you want to stick with you can play cards like Faith's Reward, color protection and indestructible creatures. also have cards like Spoils of Blood that give you profit after the inevitable board wipe.
I don't really know the decks in details, but I would still recommend Marchesa, the Black Rose. If set up properly you don't lose many creatures after board wipes, unless Terminus or exile effects.

Everglades could be replaced by Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to complete the mana acceleration package and it's probably worth running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so your few nonswamps count for your doublers.
There's plenty of ideas here: https://edhrec.com/commanders/mikaeus-the-unhallowed

Jeez, that Nissa...
The two best options to recover from board wipes are Haunted Crossroads and Deadbridge Chant. I like the Crossroads because I can pay the one swamp as many times as I have swamps, so if I have say 5 black mana I can put any 4 elves on top of the library and then make sure the 5th elf (first draw) is Sylvan Messenger to then reveal and draw the next 4 elves back to my hand. I may or may not be able to actually recast all 5 elves the turn after a board wipe, but even if I can't at least I have 4 elves back in hand to choose from. Even without the messenger I could just buy all my creatures back to the top of my library and make sure I get to redraw them which is pretty big in a singleton format I think.
The Chant is cool because after I pull my creatures out of the graveyard with Crossroads, which leaves spells in there like my pump cards and reanimation or the Golgari Charm for mass regeneration. This means I have a pretty good chance of randomly pulling back those things to reuse them again and again. The big problem is if both of these get killed because then I don't have a way to get them back. This combo has big potential with Liliana's Indignation because I can cast indignation to bury a ton of creatures, pay to put them back on my library and then possibly get a random return of Indignation and do it again for a lot of damage.
I thought it could be cool to play Spoils of Blood right after a board wipe too because in a multiplayer game that token drop could be massive.
Waste Not is really cool. I was really torn about having more black cards, and I really think a backup option to go in that direction would be fun to have in paper for different matchups. I'd probably have to either splash white or make sure I have a way to generate any color of mana with like City of Brass or Mana Confluence so I could play Sterling Grove. I don't recall if there are more things to protect my other enchantments, but they are pretty important for a grind match that you need to keep reusing spells and creatures for with the above cards.
Thanks for taking the time to look at the deck, there are a ton of planeswalkers that I am just not familiar with since I don't typically get to feature them in my own decks from bad luck opening packs and their overall high cost to purchase. I think in this format though only having to get one of each I'd actually have a shot at putting them together into a deck like this one and that Nissa would be amazing. I don't know why I don't like the Freyalise as much, its free creature drops and mana tappers which can't be a bad thing, and it has artifact/enchantment hate. Perhaps it's not grandiose enough for this deck since everything else does big things when they happen and that's just one at a time :)
Again, I appreciate you taking the time :)

Spoils of Blood allows for a means of getting a big creature out for a measly .
Maybe even Mimic Vat to go along side the large amounts of token generators from ETB effects.
