ConnerDee on No Creatures For You

Mcoronato, yeah, despite dark ritual being a god awful card to look at, I find that it is a really good black ramp that deserves a set of 4 in most black decks that are looking to get control early. It's practically a black lotus for black. Of course, it costs one so its three mana turn one, not 4 like the lotus. As far as how to fit it in, you could look to add some more token generation, then you wouldn't need as many creatures. Spells like Sengir Autocrat, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Skirsdag High Priest, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Lingering Souls, Secure the Wastes, and Sram's Expertise are some good ways of creating tokens to sacrafice.

Can't remember if Path to Exile and Fatal Push are legal in legacy but they are very good counterspells that I try to fit in with most black and/or white modern decks.

Also, here are some other cards I can think of that you might be interested in: Hell's Caretaker, Genju of the Fens, Vampiric Rites, Bitterblossom, Leyline of the Void, Vault of the Archangel.

Finally, what's going on with your sideboard? Seems a little out of place lol :)

Love the idea of this budget deck but really feel like you could do with swapping your single use sac outlets for multi use ones. How about Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Thoughtpicker Witch, Ashnod's Altar and Vampiric Rites?? I appreciate a couple are over the $1 mark but not by a great deal.

Cool deck! Have you considered Hidden Stockpile? Judging by your description, I believe it would fit into your deck better than Vampiric Rites as it replaces your sacrifice fodder and still provides card advantage. On that note, what about Zulaport Cutthroat?

I also think Bontu the Glorified is a better fit than Oketra. As you said above, Oketra is far too easy to turn off where Bontu plays well with the sacrifice theme. I agree that doublestrike is better than menace, but it still makes combat more difficult for your opponents when Odric is in play. Bontu's ability does compete with Yahenni, but she also benefits from it as well. Plus she acts as an additional sac outlet incase Yahenni gets exiled.

Another option might be Archangel Avacyn  Flip for protecting Yahenni and Odric, as well as acting as another boardwipe when you sac a creature.

How is Forsake the Worldly performing? It seems more like a sideboard card to me.

Nice deck but you're definitely missing some key cards here. Try including Attrition, Vampiric Rites, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Blood Artist, Grim Haruspex, Zulaport Cutthroat and Deathgreeter.

I would consider Zulaport Cutthroat, since you have Blood Artist. If you plan on doing a sacrifice/Aristocrats subtheme, definitely throw in Dictate of Erebos/Grave Pact, as well as some of the classic sac outlets(Vampiric Rites, Goblin Bombardment, etc.)

Since you plan on cheating mana cost, Siege-Gang Commander is strictly better than Beetleback Chief. Marsh Flitter is also an option.

It looks like Grenzo is usually going to be cast for 3, so Wort, Boggart Auntie could get you some extra graveyard value. Depending on how many goblins you usually have out, Skirk Fire Marshal could be a decent big red button.

I do also like the potential of Vampiric Rites

looks like you have some human/vampire synergy going.

Falkenrath Aristocrat is a good sac outlet if you are willing to add red.

Vampiric Rites is cheap and useful with tokens.

a lot of humans make tokens when they die like Doomed Traveler, Xathrid Necromancer, and from the new set you get Doomed Dissenter and Anointed Procession.

Zulaport Cutthroat can also act as extra Blood Artists
