I like the idea, and honestly i say keep your current commander, its something different you don't see all that oftenif you don't mind im just gonna list some cards that could be good for you, and some of my favorites

Demon of Dark Schemes while the -2/-2 might wipe your tokens and honestly might not be a great idea, I think his other ability make him at least worth a look

Sheoldred, Whispering One she lets you bring a creature back a turn and each opponent loses one, just if you have trouble with recursion

Blood Artist with all the sacrificing you can gain a lot of life with this card, you also have Zulaport Cutthroat and Falkenrath Noble that do basically the same thing

Vampire Hexmage for counter heavy decks if you need it

Black Market for that sweet sweet ramp if you need it

Palace Siege just here cause i like it, lets you either get creatures back or drain opponents

Victimize its a sac outlet and recursion all in one

Westvale Abbey  Flip you can sac creatures to get a thicc creature

MiceandMen No you just have to sac down to one. So you sac the original Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage is now a Dark Depths with no counters, thus procing the last ability.

Have you thought of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth/Vampire Hexmage as a possible turn two Dark Depths proc?

Thought it weird not to see Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with the Vampire Hexmage/Dark Depths combo. But still great. +1

Thank you for your praise, I am really proud of my primer and its been my main project for so long. My next goal is to figure out how to make text colored so I could start making sections like "sacrifice" or "discard" which will make the lists more process-able.

wombatula I know of a few powerful legacy Golgari decks. The main premise of these decks is the use of turn 1 discard (Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek) disruption like Pithing Needle, Phyrexian Revoker, or Surgical Extraction and green for land ramp (Sylvan Scrying or Crop Rotation). It's important to have a good finisher in this kind of deck, which can easily be a set of Wurmcoil Engines for modern or 4 Vampire Hexmages and 4 Dark Depths with Not of This World support for legacy. Abrupt Decay or Maelstrom Pulse will be important additions based on whether you need hard removal or not, I would highly suggest the former if your meta is competitively fast and has dirty blue players.

Many legacy and modern STAX decks go for a full artifact plan (often called mono brown) which is very strong but a hard investment $ wise. This version is the cheaper path, focusing on ramping up for a win condition with Elvish Spirit Guides, Lotus Petals and land search along the lines of the ramp cards I mentioned above while removing, disabling, and forcing discards. If your win condition is a land Dark Depths being the best example, then cards like Thespian's Stage and Crop Rotation gain immense value as they can become or search up niche items like Wasteland, Bojuka Bog, or even a Sejiri Steppe to give the Marit Lage or a Wurmcoil Engine the evasion it needs to kill.

I hope this was helpful, for more 60 card stax advice I would look at the site MTGtop8 or look up "mono brown stax" for other examples. Finding specific Golgari ones can be difficult so I tried to give you as much advice as I could.

AEther Snap, Vampire Hexmage, Hex Parasite and Thrull Parasite work nicely against walkers if you are running black.

Vampire Hexmage for Dark Depths. Instant Marit Lage.

I see Dark Depths, I see a splash of Black, but I don't see a Hex Parasite. The Vampire Hexmage does the job better, for sure, but a little bug action might be helpful for those hands where you don't draw it.

Fun looking deck, either way.
