Creatures that give mana on death

Im building a very juicy orzhov deck and need a bunch of creatures that give even or preferable more mana than their casting cost within the colors when they die (preferably do not sac themselves) The perfect example i have is Cathodion . Costs 3, gives 3 when it dies. You guys know any?

Myr Moonvessel and Su-Chi , scry fall didn't show any others.

Depending on what exactly you are doing you might really like Sifter of Skulls and Pawn of Ulamog too.

Not exactly what you're asking, but Black Market sounds like the exact card you need to tie the strategy together.

Also not exactly what you're asking for, but there's always Phyrexian Tower , Phyrexian Altar , and Ashnod's Altar .

Guys, I think he wants to sac those creatures to other effects, since he said no self-sacrificing creatures, so Thrulls are just spinning wheels. Unfortunately, the effect OP is looking for is pretty unusual, as evidenced by Su-Chi 's $50 price tag (screw the Reserved List). The best you're going to do outside the original examples is treasure and scion makers like Dire Fleet Hoarder , Gleaming Barrier , Pitiless Plunderer , and Carrier Thrall . That's why most people choose to make tokens and sac them for mana through an intermediary like Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , etc. get the mana through death-matters triggers on cards like Black Market and Pitiless Plunderer .
