I think the best way to use it is scry effects like Serum Visions with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and the rest of the eldrazi, but I dont think there is any real way to abuse it. Maybe Vorel of the Hull Clade?

My playgroup consists of 4-5 different Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis builds that basically give everyone infinite mana via Collective Voyage, then control the board with + , and the threat of Planar Cleansing with Leyline of Anticipation out as the way to stop combos. Once with my daretti deck I lost during my own combat step..
Theres also a bunch of combo decks, Jeleva big spells, and a few token decks. Not much removal, and what removal they do have they save for Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, so I think Mikaeus and Sheoldred are OK, because they'll know im not playing triskelion and such, just getting value out of it, but ya In playtesting I am liking bitterblossom a lot more.

Mcsweeting: I do have a promo foil one lying around here somewhere...
Thnaks for the suggestion!

Thanks for the suggestions, dlamars!
It turns out with this deck mana usually isn't an issue between Crypt Ghast, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, and Magus of the Coffers. Butcher will NOT get cut because Grave Pact effects are simply insane in this kind of deck, sac a token, each opponent sacs a creature, get 3 counters on yahenni, repeat. Overseer of the Damned works well in conjuction with these, but i was actually thinking about cutting him. As for overlord, he's an amazing token producer, and kuon is just another The Abyss. The sac not destroy is annoying, but my opponents need a lot of removal to kill all my other stuff, or a wrath but my playgroup doesnt run many wraths other than Planar Cleansing and Apocalypse
I do love Captain's Claws, i will test that out. I don't like the Sengir Autocrat because I want repeatable tokens (e.g Overseer of the Damned or big effects (e.g Abhorrent Overlord. I did add the skeleton, and skullclamp seems good but i dont know yet.

This is a deck i've been working on that is a ton of fun to play. Kind of an aristocrats/voltron thing, it's really cool. However, I need help cutting a couple cards for some of the cards in the maybeboard.

I don't see the point of Accursed Witch Flip in here. 1 drain a turn isn't worth it, and the only card that targets opponents is To the Slaughter, which I think could also get cut, maybe for a Chainer's Edict if you really want that effect. Tome Scour and Index should go out for things like Keening Stone and Glimpse the Unthinkable.

I do like that Idea. Still gonna be difficult to know what to cut and what to bring in. Thanks everyone for all the help you've given!

Phyrexian_plague_rider459: Thanks! I do need some evasion, right now I have Whispersilk Cloak and then the Wraths + Yahenni getting indestructible. I was also thinking about Loxodon Warhammer, but I have no idea what to cut because of all these good suggestions XD.

Ancestral Statue and Cloudstone Curio are your only real "staples" because they both allow you to go infinite with Animar. Cloudstone lets you cast 2 eldrazi infinitely, exiling everything with Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or something. Other than that, cards like Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest are OK for chaining eldrazi together, then cards like Hardened Scales/Doubling Season to put extra counters on Animar.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Sheoldred, Whispering One are the next two big cards I'm getting, as they are great in this deck and are some of the best mono-black EDH cards. Until then, Cauldron of Souls looks good. I do like the look of that Skirsdag High Priest, because free(ish) 5/5 flyers every turn seems good. I had Magus of the Abyss in here, but it was one of the last cuts I made so I could playtest on Untap, on the reasoning that it does kill my own stuff evenly, even if it's still great. Once I add more token producers, it'll probably make it's way back in here. I like infinite combos, but feel Nim Deathmantle isn't great without a Grave Titan. I'll put that in once Gary and Overlord find a way in. I don't like the cockroaches because paying 3 mana a turn for an indestructible yahenni doesn't sound exciting.
Once again, thanks for all the help! But now I need to cut more cards...

Thanks LordMithos and Wizno! I do like the Fleshbag Marauder. In playresting, I did get a bit flooded with mana, so i like that idea. Probably cut some of the more expensive lands i dont own yet so i can finish this quick. As for Lili, i just had that foil laying around and wanted to use it, as i can easily trigger her, but she is pretty low impact. I like Curse of Shallow Graves for token decks, because a Rhys the Redeemed list is running around my playgroup. The Mutilate I like because it's a budget Damnation and a lot of the time, Yahenni survives the -X/-X if a couple guys died, but I see your point.
I do love me some Smokestack, unfortunately, Bitterblossom is a bit out of my price range right now, all my expensive card (e.g ugin and Lili and Vamp Tutor) I already own, but I still will add Smokestack. Are there any other Bitterblossom-type cards you know of? I know Nuisance Engine, Breeding Pit, and Myr Turbine, I could also add some more token producers like Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder. Ideas?

I went 3-1 at my prerelease with a sweet grixis control deck. I had 10 removal spells, not counting the Fireforger's Puzzleknot, 2x Take into Custody, Fourth Bridge Prowler, Dark Intimations, Cruel Finality, ad Leave in the Dust in the sideboard. Foil promo Gonti's Aether Heart.
1x Die Young
By far the best card in this deck is Multiform Wonder. When combined with any other energy producing card, like Gonti's Aether Heart, Aethertide Whale, or even Mechanized Production on it, it's an evasive 10-point life swing each turn.
I also had the most epic win ever. I was at 3 life, then played Mechanized Production on my Pacification Array, which let me tap out his board each turn and i got up to 8 Pacification Arrays once I was at 1 life.

If you can add a black splash with some Marsh Flats, Windswept Heaths, and Godless Shrine/Overgrown Tomb, etc, then Lingering Souls is great, and I would take out Midnight Haunting. If you can't, then it's a bad Midnight Haunting that you should cut.

If it's in your budget, Serra Ascendant is great. for a 6/6 flying lifelink is borderline broken. One of the main reasons souls sisters is a deck. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is an easy, reliable finisher, and 3 creatures a turn + 2 maybe 3 soul sisters is a good way to stop anything from happening. Cool deck, i like the use of Mentor of the Meek and Essence Warden, dont see that much. +1.
