For a black / white deck I miss some spot removal like Path to Exile
and I would put the Leyline of Sanctity in the sideboard.

Actualy Grave Pact and Blood Artist trigger even if your opponent chooses to return the creature to your hand on Athreos. They all trigger "whenever a creature (you control/own) dies", so even if the creature is than returned to your hand, they still loose 1 life and have to sacrifice a creature.

maybe Quest for the Gravelord, i just like getting 5/5 zombies for 1 mana, Deathgreeter is like a mini Blood Artist and Grim Haruspex lets you draw cards. Pawn of Ulamog gives you sacrificeable tokens when you sacrifice other things.

Is there a reason why you're not running Lingering Souls? It would be a nice fit in the deck.

I would substitute Vampiric Rites with Fallen Ideal. You'll find that Vampiric Rites is costly with what you want to do. Fallen Ideal returns to your hand if the creature dies, so you don't lose it. You can even protect it if someone tries to destroy it by using its ability on the creature its attached to and get it back to your hand. Also, it allows you to, essentially, trigger Blood Artist and make you creature its attached to a flying Nantuko Husk at no cost at instant speed.

Why not a 4 of Zulaport Cutthroat?
So many better ways of building this deck it hurts.

You know, Adrekan I appreciate helpful suggestions, but you're just being a jerk.

Yeah, those two would be great... sadly my gameplay and mana curve don't support anything with such a high cmc.

I depends on the situation. I run Blood Artist because it does trigger off of opponent's creatures as well, but it also targets a player. Zulaport Cutthroat is better in situations where your opponent has Hexproof (Leyline of Sanctity)

Rivals of Ixalan has provided me with a fantastic support card in Ashes of the Abhorrent!
