I love random, obscure tribals. My input would be that both Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are better than Butcher of Malakir . If you want more death triggers you can consider Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , Falkenrath Noble , Vindictive Vampire , ect, ect.

Also, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate seems weak when things like Scytheclaw , Quietus Spike , Virtus the Veiled , and other things that half life totals exist.

I've got a different Protean Hulk line. Hulk grabs Phyrexian Delver and Viscera Seer . Delver returns Hulk, Seer sacs hulk to grab Mikaeus, the Unhallowed . Seer sacs Delver, Delver returns with undead and returns Hulk, Seer sacs hulk to grab Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Blood Artist , Hulk returns with undead. Yawgmoth sacs Blood Artist and puts a -1/-1 counter on Hulk (removing the +1/+1 counter), Blood Artist returns with a +1/+1. Yawgmoth sacs Hulk and puts a -1/-1 counter on Blood Artist. Repeat for infinite damage, all your 6-cmc creatures on the battlefield, and infinite card draw. It can be tweaked to add some sort of protection with Faceless Butcher . You might should include a card that can shuffle your graveyard into your library depending on the number of opponents because yawgmoth forces you to draw, or you could grab another combo with the undying hulk tutors instead of using Yawgmoth's ability to finish the job. You could tutor for a persist creature.

imSandstorm: The combo starts by having an additional vampire in play or if you have both Oathsworn Vampire and Blood Artist in hand to cast to generate the extra body to sac. How the combo works is this:

  1. Sacrifice any vampire and Oathsworn Vampire to Phyrexian Altar for ( Blood Artist 's drain will trigger)

  2. Cast Oathsworn Vampire from your graveyard (you can cast him now that you've gained life to enable it)

  3. Edgar Markov’s ability triggers creating a vampire token

Repeat steps 1 to 3 infinite times.

Heyo! I'm building a very similar deck to yours (it used to have a lot more eldrazi than it currently does, but there are still a few.) Carrion Court Just wanted to let you know that Ayara, First of Locthwain can only trigger on the ETBs of/sacrifice black creatures. She does not interact with your eldrazi scions/spawn/green eldrazi at all. You may know that, but without that interaction she seems underwhelming here. My list has a few options you might want to consider instead (some not exactly budget), but I don't think I know of any cards that perform her precise role well.

If you want card draw: Underworld Dreams Moldervine Reclamation Midnight Reaper Grim Haruspex Yawgmoth, Thran Physician Priest of Forgotten Gods are thoughts.

If you want life gain: Vindictive Vampire Falkenrath Noble Blood Artist Are a few options.

I'm not going to make any of those "official" suggestions as I don't know what your means are for acquiring cards.

Oathbreaker absolutely is a good kind of format for this deck! It's robust to a bunch of different enemy strategies and can adapt to situations. I love it!

I have yet to ever win meaningfully with Vraska's emblem. I've gotten it, but my opponents have already been already dead on board whenever I have. Good luck!

For an EDH deck to do well, the individual creatures should be more than just fancy sacrifice outlets but have actual utility and use.

Nest of Scarabs practically goes infinite. Very good for proliferating, too.

Necroskitter works well with your commander. A little pricey, but powerful.

Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Deathgreeter are good for gaining life if you find yourself running short a lot. The first 2 are also great wincons.

Skullclamp , because who doesn't want more cards?

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Genesis Chamber , and Westvale Abbey  Flip are great token generators.

Hey, got a couple of suggestions for you..

Kokusho, the Evening Star - Can kill a table when combined with Chainer

Blood Artist - Slowly kill the table

Zulaport Cutthroat - See above

Sangromancer - Since you have a disard theme

Mindcrank - The more your opponent's have in their grave the more you can reanimate

Hope this helps
