Tribute to Hunger Discussion

Maybe Pawn of Ulamog? It gives everything a death trigger, and spits out tokens that can be sacrificed on command whenever you need mana, puts loads of counters on Mortician Beetle (at instant speed!), gives tokens that are Morbid triggers on command, and even provides a guaranteed two bodies to sac when cast. It seems like it does everything this deck wants to do, and so I would personally take out 1x Demonlord of Ashmouth, and 3x Tribute to Hunger, to add in four.
Tribute is good and gains you life, but you already have a lot of targeted removal and it can be sided in against decks with hexproof/shroud/indestructible. Demonlord is good but it's also high on your cmc curve.
On the topis of removal, you will probably be triggering morbid enough to consider a couple Tragic Slips to replace some sorcery speed removal. Hope this helps, this is a really cool build! +1

Hey man, your Friendly Neighbourhood Deckbuilder here. as you requested ill be helping you with your lifegain deck today. some cards i would remove and reasons as to why.
Accursed Witch Flip -for what she does (which is meh at best) she costs too much mana. too slow. Night Market Lookout bad card Opaline Unicorn way better mana rocks out there Xathrid Gorgon slow for what it wants to do. much better cards in these colours with the same cmc. Paradise Mantle dont really need it Final Reward way too expensive for what it does Pharika's Cure really weak for a hard 2B Tribute to Hunger giving your opponent a choice is most times bad. token decks exist. Unholy Hunger 5 cmc to kill one creature and a requirement to hit the incidental life gain? oof. Fate Forgotten my recommendations will render obsolete Fated Retribution better replacement recommended Visara the Dreadful Seer's Lantern meh Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip Shimmering Grotto you can stand to cut a land of two Swamp see above Vampire Envoy can do better Desecration Demon its fine but not necessary Reya Dawnbringer lets face it, great ability, but with 9 mana i hope youre doing more than waiting until your next turn for a big play... with 9 mana you wanna try to win games.
here is what i have for you my friend
Heliod's Intervention one of the better cards in white recently, this deck loves the options here. Felidar Sovereign win con Merciless Eviction probably the best boardwipe these colours can ask for Fumigate amazing wrath Suture Priest great at any point in the game Utter End fantastic removal at a fair cost Talisman of Hierarchy decent rock Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain synonymous Erebos, God of the Dead too good not to run Vona, Butcher of Magan so much better than visara K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth best black card next to his dad Athreos, God of Passage incredibly good to keep wearing out your opponents. much better costed than reya Torment of Hailfire good game. Bolas's Citadel so beyond powerful when your life could be 300... Tainted Sigil very impressive when partnered with a big life drain spell (...if you havent already won) Bloodchief Ascension a game winner if not dealt with Test of Endurance win con Black Market gotta pump those x spells up!! Beacon of Immortality very cheeky with tainted remedy. dont use against me dawg.

okay firstly add a Mountain to your land base, it allows you to get a red source out of your deck with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse cut a swamp for it because your land count is perfectly fine for an aggro deck now let's get to the meat of the feast I would cut Zombify for Tortured Existence you only get a mana discount for 8 of the cards in your deck and the repeatability is much better. Sign in Blood should be replaced with Read the Bones digs deeper for 1 more mana. cut Hierophant's Chalice for Heraldic Banner. cut Sorin, Vampire Lord for Ob Nixilis Reignited, and if you cut that one you should cut Sorin's Guide which should be replaced with Cordial Vampire. if you can swing it Captivating Vampire is very good and I can guarantee it will make the deck much better. Bladebrand out for Champion of Dusk super strong and could help you win the game. cut Vampire Neonate for Indulgent Aristocrat. Breaking Point out for Underworld Connections repeatable card advantage. Ill-Gotten Inheritance out for Dark Tutelage again repeatable card draw. Revenge of Ravens out for Bad Moon. and lastly Tribute to Hunger out for Intangible Virtue.
now these are all suggestions and they are just a start, and I tried to keep all the cards around a buck or less besides Captivating Vampire

SideBae, wow thanks for all of this feedback. I went ahead and added most of the cheaper suggestions that I liked to my maybe board.
I already have a Prismatic Lens in there and own some of the other mana rocks. I think that getting a few more mana rocks then dropping the lands like you and DoWell suggested is a good idea. Just sticking with the cheaper cards for now so I don't break the bank lol.
I like the idea of more draw, tutors, and counters. I'll do my best to work in what I can. Also always looking for some better value zombies.
Again, thanks for the feedback and i'll see what I can do to make this deck better! :)
Geth's Verdict was just some removal I had from my modern zombie deck I took apart for this deck. So you are absolutely right that there is some better removal options. Tribute to Hunger should probably go for one of the other cards you mentioned as well.

This seems like a pretty mean deck against creatures. A big dumb splashy thing that would benefit from that is Rise of the Dark Realms . It gives you a pretty ridiculous board-state made up of all the monsters Toshi-sama has killed. If you're looking to make tokens, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder and Ghoulcaller Gisa are good options. Exsanguinate may also be a good finisher or a good way to put you ahead life-wise.

I need some help deciding to remove some cards to make it 100 cards commander legal, it’s 105 right now.
Throw me some ideas to add or replace cards too. Feel free to criticize me, tell me if there should be changes. First time really trying to put a deck together. I think I’m having mana and creature cost issues? I’m not sure? Thanks!
