sacrifice value deck ideas?

i wanna build a deck that plays off the Bridge from Below and Prized Amalgam combo, sacrificing the Prized Amalgam to get value only to get the amalgams back by returning Bloodghast to the battle field, right now im thinking id use Bridge from Below, Prized Amalgam, Narcomoeba, Phantasmagorian, Bloodghast and something to dredge to move things along, probably Stinkweed Imp. im looking for ideas on cards that let me sacrifice the ghasts and amalgams to get value. im trying to stay / but might splash for life from the loam or to flashback unburial rites
In just , I can think of Viscera Seer, Drowned Rusalka, Sidisi's Faithful, Bloodthrone Vampire, Nantuko Husk, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and Bontu the Glorified. if you want to splash red, then Greater Gargadon, and Insolent Neonate are also very good. I also might suggest you take a lot at Rally the Ancestors decks. They might be right up your alley. They often abuse casting rally on your opponent's turn to block their creatures, and then sacrifice all of the creatures to prevent the exile clause -- often times doing a lot of damage in the process with Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat.

Thanks, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet looks great, i had forgotten about blood artist too, bontu would be a but slow but blood artist would speed it up quite a bit. looks like some disruption is in order, Norn's Annex might be good to slow things down, or some fogs. Thoughtseize will have to do since i dont think Cabal Therapy is modern legal any thoughts on how to live long enough to make it work?

targeted discard would be your best friend as removing threats with discard will not exile your bridges. Path to Exile also works wonders, but requires you to add white. I have played Mardu Bridge from Below lists before. I used Nahiri, the Harbinger (with a super spicy Worldspine Wurm to cheat into play with her ult), Path to Exile, Tidehollow Sculler, and Anger of the Gods for removal. I did not use Prized Amalgams, but I did use Bloodghast and Grave Crawlers for recursive zombie making machines, and Viscera Seer, Greater Gargadon, and Insolent Neonate as sacrfice outlets. I would also likley want to use at least 1 Hidden Stockpile now that it is a card. There would be times when I would anger to clear the board -- which would suck because I would then have to sacrifice everything and then find another zombie to restart my zombie chains so I could re-cast Grave Crawler. But Cradle of the Accursed, and Dunes of the Dead are both new cards that I did not have access to when I played the deck.

The Hellbringer This is the current iteration of the deck. When playing it, pretty much any hand with Bridge from Below is an auto keep, but it sometimes lacks the draw and filtering to draw into one if it is not in your opening hand. I have not played the list in a while, but I can say that it was probably one of the most fun decks I have ever played.

Right now I have the Anger of the Gods in the side -- but it might not be a bad idea to move at least some to the main to help you drag the game longer if you are having trouble finding a bridge. But usually once you find a bridge, the game just spirals out of control for you.
