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 Discussion

theartision, ahh okay mate!
Well, here's a list of cheap wraths for ya!
I'm not sure on cheap tutors. Maybe other users can chime in on that one :)

Permanents that let you pay life for free are allstars in Greven. Fortunately, the ones you don't have are also cheap. Moltensteel Dragon , Souldrinker , Soul Channeling , Unspeakable Symbol are all good.
After dumping up to 16 life into these, you're total might be getting low. That's why lifelink is critical for Greven. You're missing the cheap ones again: Cartouche of Ambition , Vampiric Link , Butcher's Cleaver .
Lastly, to make Greven's menace count, you want to clear at least all but one of each opponent's creatures (without killing Greven). You aren't including Fleshbag Marauder , Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , or Vona's Hunger ; all of which clear one or more creatures from EACH opponent! Not to mention some all-star Greven board wipes like Chandra's Ignition , Ritual of Soot , and Crater Hellion . Spot removal can fill the gaps; pack a few.
A couple other notes. First strike can help Greven win any combat without a scratch, regardless of blockers. Double strike is obviously better. Card draw is better on permanents: Greed and Arguel's Blood Fast Flip are good, so is erebos. Chainer, Dementia Master lets you lose life to reanimate, so does Phyrexian Delver (reanimate on a stick).
I'd add one land and some usefull bigger creatures. Get some five and six toughnesses in there and you can put Greven on the two-hit clock without a lifesink. The goal is to lose life after all.
I like where you're going with this thing. Hopefully I've shown you some cards you missed!

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.

Bitterbub Actually it isn't slow at all due to the lands I chose. Surprisingly I have more problems agaist midrange and control due to the lack of removals. Usually after one or two
well timed, the aggro opponent concedes.
I always have a pile of treasure tokens aside so usually I can use Vona's Hunger on turn 4 or 5 with full potencial. But yes, this card is better against an army of big creatures or early against only 1 big creature.
Actually my deck has many Shock . I use Makeshift Munitions instead of Shock and Lightning Strike against small creatures, and I combine Makeshift Munitions with Fathom Fleet Cutthroat , Angrath, the Flame-Chained or Captivating Crew against big creatures.
The inicial idea was build a deck only with Ixalan and Rivals of Ixalan cards. But I accept card suggestions from any set. Which removal card would you recomend? I thought maybe exchange Prosperous Pirates for Admiral Beckett Brass ... But hardly never I could cause combat damage with 3 pirates... Though this card would help to crew Conqueror's Galleon Flip earlier. Or I could exchange one Vona's Hunger for another Angrath, the Flame-Chained .
Yes. Unknown Shores is a shitty mana-fixer but is faaaast! Fast like a basic land. All my lands enter the battlefield untapped. My deck is mostly creatures and artifacts so with Unclaimed Territory I have no problems casting most of my cards. For the noncreature spells I use the treasure tokens to cast the cheaper ones. I always have a pile of treasure tokens.

I find it easier to find budget options once you have a commander, strategy and what you want the deck to do

You don't really have that many cards with in the casting cost so you should adjust your swamp to island ratio so you can hit double black more reliably. I'd swap out 5 islands for 5 swamps and see how that plays. You can get away with a couple of lands that come in tapped so a Dimir Guildgate is a budget friendly option as well.
Tidy Conclusion and Unholy Hunger are too expensive CMC-wise for the additional benefit they provide [very minimal life gain for the most part]. Some better replacements: Hero's Downfall , Vona's Hunger , Go for the Throat , Tragic Slip and Necrotic Wound
