Vona's Hunger

Each opponent sacrifices a creature. If you have the city's blessing, instead each opponent sacrifices half the creatures he or she controls, rounded up.

Vona's Hunger might be better than Liliana's Triumph , since you don't have any Liliana planeswalkers. It is 1 more mana though.

What Pikobyte said. But for specific suggestions, I'll list them below.

- Brood Monitor isn't super strong in EDH. Not necessarily a must-cut, but one I'd definitly keep in mind. - Izoni, Thousand-Eyed is super powerful, but the mana requirements are pretty tough in a three-color deck. - Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis doesn't do much for your game plan. You have much better ways for forced sacrifice. - Scribe of the Mindful should probably be cut, unless you really want to keep the amount of Instant/Sorcery spells high. - Sphinx of Foresight , while interesting, is just kinda... meh. - Thallid Soothsayer is okay, but there are better sac outlets available to you. - Verdant Force is far too expensive and slow for what it does. - Weaver of Currents doesn't produce colored mana, which is important for a three-color deck.
- Curse of Disturbance isn't great, and not something you want to spend your T3 play on. - Underworld Connections could be cut in favor of better draw spells. Mystic Remora or Rhystic Study would be great here. -I respect the Exquisite Blood / Sanguine Bond combo, but without both cards you're stuck with a 5 CMC enchantment that doesn't do much for you.
- Haunted Fengraf and Rogue's Passage are both underwhelming, I'd look at replacing them with lands that produce colored mana or have stronger utility.
- Cast Down , Doom Blade , Incubation / Incongruity , Price of Fame , and Vona's Hunger are all decent removal, but again, you should prioritize permanents with those effects. - Dismiss and Unwind both seem like they're thrown in here. There's not much use for them. There are even creatures that can counter spells. - Thought Scour is worse than Stitcher's Supplier in this deck.
Nothing specific to replace here, but I would look into better (cheaper CMC) mana rocks and other value engines.

Is Vona's Hunger not a perfect card to mimic the Thanos Snap in a game of magic?

Vona's Hunger seems like a solid soft board wipe here.

Hey there,

As a forever fan of black decks, zombies, skeletons, and the classic Death Baron I like your general deck idea here. Some suggestions I would make would be to add a Cabal Stronghold for late game. Once you hit 5 swamps it can give you a boost which you could use to your mana pool for reassembling your Reassembling Skeleton , Gutterbones , and for Isareth the Awakener .

I would also cut the creeping chill as I don't think they add much value to your deck. Replacing them with Duress from your sideboard which I think would serve you better in preventing some counterplay to your board.

I would also suggest cutting at least one Graveyard Marshal , probably two (i know he is great but here me out) and replacing him with a Vona's Hunger . Because your deck is so permeant heavy and such low converted mana cost I think you could really end up forcing players to sacrifice half their creatures consistently with it, and also I feel as though Liliana, Untouched By Death is undermined by Graveyard Marshal , so while you want his ability you would likely be using him as a 3/2 zombie to buff with Deathbaron.

StanleyHartman Thanks for commenting!

I like the idea of adding in the Spawn I just have had trouble figuring out what to remove to make room for it? Any suggestions? I was thinking perhaps removing Open the Graves for one? But its hard because I have already cut down to one Open the Graves and it has had some great value against control decks when the game gets forced to later turns.

I see what you are saying with Drill Bit , my only concern is that the deck has so many cards which I would prefer to be playing on turns 2-6 that I feel like it becomes a late game play unless I can hit with some early damage. It definitely would still have value I just like Duress because while the effect doesn't cover discarding creatures it can on turn one pull a Settle the Wreckage , Cleansing Nova , Deafening Clarion , or Kaya's Wrath before my deck gets up and running and could otherwise be using the mana to reassemble a skeleton or cast something else. Creatures are easily enough dealt with by the deck combinations in MOST situations. I may add them to my sideboard though because since changing the deck up in Arena I haven't been using the extra Rite of Belzenlok or extra Vona's Hunger which were initially moved to the sideboard out of the main deck. So those cards are more placeholders in the sideboard than serious sideboard cards.
