A lot has changed since the original design of the deck was put up. I hope it can grow, as the deck seems to have potential.

BonehoardMTG Card: Bonehoard might be a good fit, it's pretty much your Lord of ExtinctionMTG Card: Lord of Extinction but artifact. Just my .02

More like my Boneyard WurmMTG Card: Boneyard Wurm. Lord of ExtinctionMTG Card: Lord of Extinction is ALL cards in ALL graveyards.

Only problem with that is if the token dies, via artifact being destroyed or just being Doom BladeMTG Card: Doom Bladed, then my other creatures like Boneyard WurmMTG Card: Boneyard Wurm, MortivoreMTG Card: Mortivore, etc won't gain any effects from it.

Not a bad card suggestion, just not one I think would be good for this deck.

Could use Bone Splinters for some targeted removal over the sacrificers. Spider Spawning is in your colours, and makes use of your main mechanic.

Also Garruk Relentless  Flip - deathtouch to fill graveyards, tutor for Lord of Extinction , ultimate him for an in-mechanic win condition!

I love the idea of Bone Splinters and Garruk Relentless  Flip . What should I remove for them?

Maybe -2 Augur of Skulls , +2 Garruk Relentless  Flip , -1 card:Geth's Verdict, -1 Tribute to Hunger , +2 Bone Splinters .

And it would be completely awesome to have Geth, Lord of the Vault filling up their graveyard and handing you their creatures...

I might do just -1 Augur of Skulls and -1 Liliana of the Veil for 2 Garruk Relentless  Flip , then -1 card:Altar's Reap and -1 card:Geth's Verdict for 2 Bone Splinters . As for Geth, I don't think he would be good in here. Maybe a sideboard card for decks using Wurmcoil Engine , but that's about it.

Note: Geth takes artifacts OR creatures.... not artifact creatures.

Ohhhhh, I read it as just artifact xD Well, what should I replace for 2 of them?

Tough to say, because I do hate to slam a person's mana curve like that. I would suggest maybe just one Geth, Lord of the Vault for a Wurmcoil Engine , just for testing! Playtest and see if he's good. I think he could be very awesome, and a 5/5 unblockable is nice even when they have nothing for you to plunder.

The truth is, I have not yet gotten to play with Geth - I own one, and he's in a Commander deck, but hasn't shown up yet!
