Zulaport Cutthroat Discussion

n0bunga I guess that's fair, again, I was just going off of what I was told, I don't play Yisan at all. Animar at least has some protection on it, and normally will only get removed by blue bounce effects, but Yisan, the Wanderer Bard will get hit by stuff like Swords to Plowshares, Dismember, etc. I do run Yisan in my Selvala list, but I know it is separate for the commander, so I'll take your word on it.
cvarena21989 now your deck only has a 3 card combo (CFE creature like Eternal Scourge, Food Chain, and outlet like Impact Tremors), that is very slow, I wouldn't call it cEDH competitive at all. On another note, how does Carrion Feeder, Eternal Scourge, Food Chain, and Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper go infinite? Like you need to be in magical christmas land to get them all, but I still don't know how you win from there, no creatures can die infinitely with it to trigger Sek'Kuar, because if you sacrifice Eternal Scourge to Carrion Feeder, you can't get it back, and if you sacrifice sek'kuar the deathkeeper to it, it won't trigger since it says 'whenever another nontoken creature dies'. Your deck doesn't even really work, let alone act competitively.
Using Blood Artist, or Zulaport Cutthroat with the combo requires it to be a 4 card combo that needs like 9 mana, and why do you bring up Fire Covenant, it doesn't do anything here unless you have infinite life, which you can only get from Blood Artist, or Zulaport Cutthroat, in which case you already won.
Look I am trying to help you out, but jesus man, you come in saying you have a competitive deck, and normally I am like "Oh, it works well, it is just a little fragile or slow," but your deck doesn't even work. Now that I think about it, Carnage Altar doesn't work either, since the infinite mana you have from Food Chain needs to be done on creatures, which the ability from Carnage Altar isn't.

Plunge into Darkness and Killing Wave are good for sacrifice your creatures and triggering abilities like like Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Dark Prophecy, Grave Pact, Tattered Mummy and Nether Traitor.

I've removed Zulaport Cutthroat, and Tendrils of Agony, and replaced them with Liliana's Contract and Torment of Hailfire. I was considering putting in Exsanguinate, but I figured something more spicy would be more fun in the end.

I got a chance to read the decklist and it looks really good. I'll mull it over and read it a few more times, but it looks solid and really sticks with the theme. The only cards I would consider are Exquisite Blood and Zulaport Cutthroat but I don't know what you'd swap out for them. Another good card is Mastermind's Acquisition

You're off to a decent start, I'd say. Your curve looks good, though you're mana base is a bit weak at the moment (you should be running about 40 land for consistency). Some commentary as I took notes:
Heliod, God of the Sun doesn't seem to fit with the overall theme of the deck. You'd be better off with a card that will give you lifelink creatures or something, to help offset the life-loss from your various effects. Whip of Erebos would be my pick for this deck.
Blood Tribute is going to want more vampires, which are kind of slim in your deck at the moment.
Brainspoil is...poor removal. I would remove it. Killing Wave, on the other hand, is a good choice for sweep, and Remorseless Punishment and Temporal Extortion are nice. I like Near-Death Experience as an alternate win-con, but Path of Bravery is going to hamper that, especially since you don't appear to have super-consistent lifegain.
You have...two? infect cards. I would remove them since infect is really an alternate win-con that you aren't geared toward. Diseased Vermin might make for an alternate rat if you must have a rat, especially if you can give it evasion somehow, and it works with lifelink. It's not a strong pick for the deck, though.
Seekers' Squire doesn't really seem to fit any of your themes.
Ones that work somewhat with the life drain: Defiant Bloodlord, Retreat to Hagra, Thrull Parasite, Bontu's Monument, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Underworld Coinsmith (this would be a reason to keep Heliod, actually), Zulaport Cutthroat, and maybe Vizkopa Confessor
Others that pay life or give you life somehow: Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Chainer, Dementia Master, Cruel Sadist, Phyrexian Reclamation, Vona, Butcher of Magan, and Elenda, the Dusk Rose (for working with your creatures dying).
All of this, of course, is subject to what you're willing to buy, and you don't have to listen to anything I say. It's your deck, after all.

As far as decks that benefit from sacrificing your own stuff, there are lots of half decent aristocrats lists. Bloodbriar likely would not make the cut in any of these, but cards like Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Cartel Aristocrat, Bloodthrone Vampire, Viscera Seer, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Doomed Traveler, Abzan Ascendancy, Bridge from Below, Kitchen Finks, Blisterpod, Bloodsoaked Champion, Tukatongue Thallid, Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, Voice of Resurgence, Young Wolf, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Tidehollow Sculler, and Rally the Ancestors are all cards I would look at.
EDIT: Scapeshift wins in the aptly named "Scapeshift" or "TitanShift" (which also uses Primeval Titan) decks by ramping to 7 lands and shifting into 6 mountains and a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for 18 damage -- usually enough to kill most decks. If they have not yet taken damage for some reason, then going up to 8 lands for 7 mountains and a Valakut will hit for 21.

Some notable land cards you could add are Exploration and Oracle of Mul Daya. World Shaper is amazing for recursion since you can sacrifice it easily. Skullclamp is great for card draw if you are sacrificing. Mana Echoes gives ridiculous ramp for a token strategy.
Life and Limb gives infinite tokens and infinite landfall with Sporemound, and you can sacrifice Sporemound to end the loop. Living Plane and Nature's Revolt are also good for animating your lands. These can give infinite mana with Aggravated Assault. Massacre Wurm kills opponents' lands if animated, and burns them when their creatures die.
Amulet of Vigor is helpful if you have lots of tapped lands and effects that put lands in play tapped.
