Check out Aid from the Cowl. Super-competitive? No. Worth messing around with in more casual decks? Absolutely. I greatly enjoyed sacrificing my Relentless Dead and flipping a Rune-Scarred Demon on my end step. If it wiffs, it acts as a public scry, letting you push the non-permanent away if you don't want it. And revolt should be easy to trigger in most Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, or Meren of Clan Nel Toth builds.
Also, I guess those Roon of the Hidden Realm flicker people could use this too, but ew bant.

In the True Sacrifice Commander build, this card doesn't have a home. Mazirek wants to be doing so much more for five mana, and most of his creatures aren't huge mana investments, so getting more value out of this versus something like Mitotic Slime would be difficult. Casual Meren would love this card, though, as would Savra and Jarad. It would depend on the build for Nath, but I would say that he wouldn't like it either. The big kicker is that it only triggers at the end of your turn, so you might as well just be playing Lurking Predators for one more mana. A cool card though.

Also, as a former Roon player, I take extreme offense to your obvious dislike of the degenerate comb- I mean games of fair Magic that he creates.
