Nykthos was suggested before and I never made a slot to throw it in the deck. I may do that but I don’t want to decrease the swamp count any more than it is now if I can help it. Having too many sources just making colorless can hinder the deck greatly.
I have considered Leyline of the Void but I don’t really care about all other graveyards. It’s nice when someone pitches Avenger of Zendikar to Mindslicer and I get to make infinite mana from it, Chainer, and Altars. Planar Void would be terrible because it hits me too. The Wretch is actually a lot hotter than you guys think. It’s BB (cheap, and devotion matters sometimes here), it’s a zombie creature (recurs, turns on gravecrawler), and it eats something at instant speed. That’s very relevant in cEDH. Leyline might be good but if I were to add it, it’d be in addition to Wretch and not a swap.
Corpse Dance would be good if it didn’t say top creature card. Since it’s illegal to manipulate your graveyard once you choose the order in which cards enter it, you’re just kind of stuck with whatever is on top of it at the time, and that’s a little too RNG for this deck.
I never noticed Vindictive Vampire . I may add it as a 4th blood artist effect. The other recur creatures mentioned are all subpar to Gravecrawler and Reassembling Skeleton, and wouldn’t be a good fit for the deck.

channelfireball12345: carnival is pretty sweet but the life loss is too significant right now to support it. Ophiomancer was in the deck at one time but was cut because it didn’t perform as well as I’d hoped. Bubbling Muck probably wouldn’t be effective since I get a lot of mana from non-swamp sources while combo-ing.

Profet93: most of the wins are through combo or Living Death loops. While graveyard hate can tear it up sometimes, cards like Rest in Peace aren’t played often so it’s never been an issue. As for other stuff, politics gets me pretty far, and the speed and resilience of the deck gets me the rest of the way. Contamination can totally shut down decks as well since black has issues with enchantments already and locking people out of their mana tends to win.
Ragnar0k: I don’t run the monument because I don’t often cast any creatures. Most stuff comes out through recursion, and the drain creatures in the deck are recurrable so they take care of the monument’s second ability.
crackerjackz: there’s a lot of different combos. Sac outlets make up most of them, as it enables tons of shenanigans, and Pawn of Ulamog and Pitiless Plunderer help it go infinite with the drain creatures. Gravecrawler is a big enabler there for that kind of win. I can also loop Living Death with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed and a sac outlet that nets mana. There’s more ways than that but those are main ones.

heckproof: this deck has morphed into something totally different now and is no longer Gwafa at this time. At some point I’ll delete or retire this one and post the new one once I make a few more tweaks. Thanks for the suggestions though

I love Chainer. I think if you’re taking the beatdown boulevard, Phyrexian Obliterator has to be included. He’s a powerhouse, and you can surprise him back into play and force some sacrifice during combat.
My Chainer is more combo, but I’ve included a link if you’re interested. +1
