You might consider Brion's little brother, Bloodshot Cyclops. You don't get the lifegain, but if you put Thornbite Staff on him, you can sac until you run out of creatures.

added Hell's Caretaker. With snakes available to sacrifice this will allow me to pull from graveyard and get creatures for added ETB eccects (the minus counters in particular) Added Gray Merchant of Asphodel. This can owrk nice for late game garnering some nice life in a multiplayer format as well as pose a threat from graveyard with Hell's Caretaker pulling him back in for a snake. Thornbite Staff on the caretaker can lead to a loop. Added Rendclaw Trow more snakes. Added Incremental Blight ,Cinderbones and Viridian Corrupter again the more wither I get out there the better and less reluctant an enemy to attack as I can get snakes and insects out of it.

extensive mods made to this as I want more snakes and will do that via wither. Updating shortly. I still have to keep it under 50 bucks for our format but it fun. I use Thornbite Staff in lieu of viridian as I like the untap effect meaning for the use of mana I can either kill more with deathtouch .

Thornbite Staff should def be in there. Just get something to die, then while the untap trigger is on the stack, tap merieke to steal a dude. Dude gets stolen, merieke untaps, dude dies. Dudes death triggers her untap... ect ect. One sided boardwipe.

I agree with the Ghoulcaller Gisa strategy. Put a Thornbite Staff on her, and run Carnival of Souls. Infinite tokens, if you can nullify the life loss. Wait, running green and white? Soul Warden and Essence Warden take care of that.

Sweet, now I want to build a Karador deck.

It has been quite some time since I started playtesting with the deck but I'm still gathering game info. Tomahawk-Barang, thank you for the suggestions. I have seen that the untapping enchantments can tax my blue mana heavily, as such, i'm taking Freed from the Real out and will try Thornbite Staff instead. I understand it's more expensive, but it costs 0 blue, meaning up to 4 more activations from Ertai.

Really liking how it performs so far! :D

Thornbite Staff would cause Marrow-Gnawer to go infinite.
