Hey HELLcaster19, huge thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it. Most of the cards you mentioned already came to my mind one time or another, but I found it really hard to free the slots for them. Especially Bloodghast might be a really good addition tho!

SirHerpaderp As mentioned by enpc earlier, Drownyard Temple is a fantastic addition to your deck, for what you are trying to do. Do not forget that you can always have that land brought back to your field during an opponents turn as well, so that it untaps on your turn.

Rain of Filth is a card that works like Squandered Resources but only generates , in addition to drawing you cards and pumping your commander.

Also, something like Bloodghast would fit in nicely. If you have no other target for a sac option, kill it off instead. Play a land and presto manifesto, it returns to your field. :)

Temur Sabertooth could also be a viable option for an addition to utilize a handful of those creatures that have etb's

Throwing in a single copy of a card is not going to help you too much - you want to build for consistency, which means running 4 copies of most cards (sometimes 2 or 3 copies of the card of it had a high mana cost or you otherwise only want to cast it later in the game, so you don’t need to draw it early). The other exception is some cards in Vintage where you can only run one copy, but they’re powerful enough that the chance of drawing your single copy could swing entire games in your favour.

I don’t think your deck is powerful enough for Vintage, since you made a comment about that format, but discard decks can be quite effective at kitchen table.

You should look into “8-Rack” lists, one of the top discard strategies. 8-Rack runs 4 copies of The Rack and 4 of Shrieking Affliction to deal a fair bit of damage per turn. Then you lock down the opponent by using cards like Thoughtseize, Raven's Crime, and Inquisition of Kozilek to keep your opponents from being able to do very much.

Another popular discard deck is Pox. Pox uses Smallpox and similar effects, like Rankle, Master of Pranks, to slow down your opponents, while running things like Flagstones of Trokair and Bloodghast to break parity.

Nice gatotempo! +1 from me.

I think a full set of Bloodghasts would benefit you, since I don’t see much damage potential here. Especially since you are running Liliana of the Veil. You usually won’t have to cast them and they keep coming back after your board wipes.

The Murderous Riders are good, but they are over-costed. 4 seems like too many, since you are running Downfall anyway. Another option is Dismember. With all your cheap discard spells, maybe Nighthawk Scavengers could be effective too.

Sooo what do you want for this deck? Do you need token producers? If that is the route you want to go down, there are some other cards you should look at:

Sacrifice outlets. I see you already have Viscera Seer, that's a really good one, but you might also consider Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar, and maybe Spawning Pit. Also Vampiric Rites.

More aristocrats. You are in the right colors for these, so this shouldn't be hard to fill out. Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble; I think there might be some red ones that make the creature itself deal damage to any target? If so, those should be an auto include what with the assassins having deathtouch.

As far as actual tokens go, it seems you mostly have one-off effects; if you want more of these, you should look for cards that get you tokens with a high amount of efficiency. If you had enough mana rocks and stuff like that I would suggest Kuldotha Rebirth, but for now I don't think that is going to do it as often as you want. Probably you want stuff like Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst, etc. for this category.

In terms of token producing that recursively gives you value, I would suggest Assemble the Legion for sure; also, maybe Ophiomancer (expensive but very good with a sacrifice outlet) and any of the Goonies would be good, though technically they aren't tokens, they just come back a lot (Reassembling Skeleton, Nether Traitor, Bloodsoaked Champion, Bloodghast, Tenacious Dead, either Squee would work). If you really do want tokens to come out and be there at the same time and start to build up a board state with them, you should probably use ... well, I dunno, you're in white. Figure it out.

Also, one last thing: Cathars' Crusade.

In terms of what to cut, I would look reaaally hard at the top of your curve. I would probably drop Gravewaker at least. I think Necrotic Hex is probably good in your deck, because you have so many creatures, but just in general I think it's better in a deck that actually cares about either the word "sacrifice" or the zombies for being zombies rather than the zombies being bodies. Lena seems bad here, I don't know how many nontoken creatures you'll have. I think Crush Contraband could get cut for more efficient removal, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Utter End if you want a budget version. Moan of the Unhallowed is ... straight up bad I think.

Let me know if these were helpful or if you need more cuts.

What do you think about the mana saturn999? I’ve found very few time that I run out of mana but a few more times where I have nothing but mana. Would you consider swapping out 2 mana for 2 Bloodghast or even another card type?
