Viscera Seer Discussion

you definitely need the 4th Bloodghast, you should cut the Vampire Lacerator as it is too low impact and Dusk Legion Zealot does not seem particularly good unless you are going wide. Suggest Viscera Seer for blanking removal+fixing your draw+combo with Bloodghast+combo with Kalastria Highborn. And if you are playing 4 Fatal Push, you'd want some number of fetches. You can also fit Mutavault in as an honorary vampire. Since you have access to white, you'd want powerhouse sideboard cards such as Stony Silence.

The problem with the new Gaea's Blessing breakfast hulk combo is that the package moves at instant speed so they can just do everything in response to the damage tigger. Plus they don't have to fetch Viscera Seer (you can use the damage trigger to kill Narcomoeba) so you can get Grand Abolisher. But other than that situation, it craps on traditional breakfast hulk, yes.
Your other option could be the inclusion of a ping creature. There are four that are worth mention:
Cunning Sparkmage - Fairly basic but has haste, so he can do his thing the turn he drops.
Vithian Stinger - No haste but can be unearthed on combo turn, giving him more resilience.
Izzet Staticaster - doesn't double as a combo piece but is a house as far as killing off dorks.
I'm not sure if they're good enough for the deck, however they feel anti-meta since there is such a reliance on aman dorks and in general 1 toughness creatures. And the fact that other than Staticaster, they can all be coupled with Keen Sense/Curiosity for CA and with Dramatic Scepter to act as a win condition.

Don't know much about artifact sac outlets but as far as creature sac outlets go there's Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Blood Bairn, Nantuko Husk, Spawning Pit, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampiric Rites, Disciple of Griselbrand, Altar's Reap, and Bone Splinters, Hell's Caretaker, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Phyrexian Plaguelord, and Whisper, Blood Liturgist off the top of my head. There's also Phyrexian Altar but it's not cheap. You can probably find more of these effects as well as artifact sac effects on gatherer.

Well, this isn't a standard deck, so if you change the format to Modern, it should work. Casual, Legacy, and Vintage are also formats this deck is legal in. I can explain format legality further if you want.
I need to know a few things before I go over how to improve the deck. Really, the list is an eldrazi-tribal list, with a high-costed top end, and a strange low-end.
The first thing I need to know is exactly what the deck's purpose is. Do you want to cast giant eldrazi? Do you want to sacrifice a bunch of little tokens?
For example, the Tron lands, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower, and Urza's Mine make enough mana to consistently cast eldrazi, and with Expedition Map to fetch them out, and Eldrazi Temple for additional mana, you can really improve the layout of the deck, and probably the biggest downside is the need to cut a lot of the colored portion of your deck.
If you like sacrificing little guys, Blisterpod for example, maybe drop the top end of your mana curve, and run Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat along with running cards like Viscera Seer to get a lot of value from sacrificing creatures, digging for more of them, dealing damage to your opponents, and gaining life. with a card like Fecundity you could even draw your deck, and be making mana at the same time to cast it, scrying along the way, draining your opponent to their death.
You could also move to a processor-exile build, where you try to exile cards from your opponent's deck, hand, graveyard, and battlefield, just to regain value from them, with cards like Blight Herder or Wasteland Strangler as good processors, and cards like Thought-Knot Seer and Oblivion Ring/Surgical Extraction/Relic of Progenitus, etc. for exile value.
Currently the list is split between the green-ramp-into-eldrazi deck and the black-value-oriented-eldrazi deck, neither of which are particularly good in Modern, where they are legal. I would recommend if you decide to stay this route to run Doom Blade or Go for the Throat at least over Grisly Salvage and fix the mana-base up with some dual lands like Hissing Quagmires on a budget.
The other things I need to know to help include:
How much money are you willing to spend on this deck?
What format is this deck going to be in?
What cards do you own that could fit into the strategy that aren't currently in the deck?
Thanks for contacting me! I am happy to help!

Thanks for the comment WhichKing. Repay in Kind is an interesting suggestion. I'll have to give it some thought. I ran Thada Adel in my original Sygg, River Cutthroat list, but it is a little too slow for this deck. I want all of my evasive enablers at 1 or 2 cmc. Rootwater Thief is interesting, but I prefer my enablers to have natural evasion or some very relevant late game effects (i.e. Viscera Seer and Deadeye Tracker). It is close to the same reason why I don't run Thassa, God of the Sea in this deck. On paper it sounds good, but in practice the mana investment is too steep for minor benefit.

Discarding 8 opponent cards for 3 mana is still a strong play. And meeting that condition doesn't have to be hard. Viscera Seer is cheap to cast and serves that need. GL though.

You should have a sac outlet for this to work better, Viscera Seer??
