Awaken the Blood Avatar
As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This spell costs less to cast for each creature sacrificed this way.
Each opponent sacrifices a creature. Create a 3/6 black and red Avatar creature token with haste and "Whenever this creature attacks, it deals 3 damage to each opponent."

Absolutely love it. +1 for the name alone, but solid build all around. If I could give +2 for your choice of basic lands I would. You've definitely inspired me to try and build my own version of Awaken the Blood Avatar .
Quick question though... do you rely mostly on sacrificing your tokens in order to reduce the casting cost of Awaken the Blood Avatar , or do you sac your regular creatures as well? I'm curious because I thought cards with afterlife might be good here. Doomed Traveler / Garrison Cat / Hunted Witness and Ministrant of Obligation just to name a few (there are many, many more in these colors. Theses would all pair really well with two cards you're already running Anointed Procession / Teysa Karlov .
Regardless of whether or not you decide to use those you could add Agadeem's Awakening Flip / Rally the Ancestors or Wake the Dead for some pretty explosive turns. Luminous Broodmoth would be really good here as well.

Just letting you know that Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip / Awaken the Blood Avatar has no associated Avatar token in the simulator currently, nor does Sedgemoor Witch or Callous Bloodmage have 1/1 pests when in the simulator.

this is an interesting deck. I like the idea of Awaken the Blood Avatar and what it does. +1

Always good to hear from a fellow hivemate , by the way your customized username is very cool. I find myself wanting to give my plain looking user name the same treatment - but i'm too lazy to re-learn how to do it. As for my decision making process behind choosing Painlands over others, the constant life loss is a relatively minor concern - the aim of this deck is to threaten to win between turns 5 and 8 (or sooner, ideally). It doesn't matter what my life total is at the end of a game, as long as I win.
Separately, I think the Battlebond lands are an absolutely awesome card design. However, I don't want to include them because I don't like the idea of a land that ETBs tapped 100% of the time during a 1 v 1 game.
As for Strixhaven, nothing for Slivers piqued my interest. However, I do like Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip/ Awaken the Blood Avatar . I think it's a very unique and cool concept for a commander. I don't think i'll invest any money in building a paper copy of an Extus deck as I don't really play Magic in person anymore. I play exclusively on Cockatrice with friends as that's the only real safe way to play. Plus, I get to try out a whole myriad of different commander decks for free. If you want to get a game in feel free to add me, I have the same name on Cockatrice as I do on here.

In particular with Extus, Oriq Overlord Flip it's even a really good synergy with its backside. Awaken the Blood Avatar lets you sacrifice creatures to reduce it's casting cost and Extus will put them back into your hand.
