I'll check out your deck!

Nice deck! I'm a friend of Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest as well...I would add Tar Fiend to make the opponents discard their hands. I think you can do it with just a few creatures/tokens, maybe 5 or 6 is enough to dominate the board: have Mycoloth eat 6, he gets 18 counters with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest on the board. Next turn make 18 token on upkeep, and throw down Tar Fiend for the biggest hand size in play. At that point you can wait for the next turn or flicker Mycoloth with Conjurer's Closet. If there are 10 tokens left after Tar Fiend then he gets 30 counters. Then you can use Gruesome Fate on the next turn or something like Zulaport Cutthroat if you have a sac outlet

I feel as if Prossh, Skyraider of Kher is a better commander choice, because Sek'Kuar is restricted to only nontokens.
Thromok the Insatiable is another nice option, although he unfortunately lacks trample.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed can be used to repeatedly sac non-human creatures
Tar Fiend is nice as well.
Unfortunately, most of my suggestions are mono-black, mainly because I only have experience with Endrek Sahr as a commander, although my Endrek Sahr EDH is centered around the same mechanic.

Hey Mike94 thanks for the suggestions. I actually went ahead and took your advice and swapped in Ophiomancer and Bitterblossom because I've been looking for ways to make more tokens for free, and I swapped out Tar Fiend and Mind Slash because they really weren't doing a whole lot for me. Thanks man!

I don't have to expend many creatures with devour. They have devour 2 and Corpsejack Menace doubles it again. For 2 replaceable tokens I get 8 counters, or 16 if I have 2 corpsejacks out. Then Mycoloth makes more tokens for each counter each turn which get counters from Oran-Rief, the Vastwood. Mycoloth did get removed by my opponent in one game but it wasn't detrimental. I still won with the tokens it made, the elves, and Tar Fiend which made him discard his hand after devouring some tokens.Also Ezuri, Renegade Leader can't combo with Devoted Druid because regenerate doesn't work on 0 toughness.

Cool list! I'd probably some devour creature to take advantage of the tokens you're creating with Garruk and Sprouting Thrinax. My personal favorite is Mycoloth, but Skullmulcher and Tar Fiend are sweet too.
