I have replaced Angrath, the Flame-Chained with Captivating Crew, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.11 to 4.10, a change that I made primarily to allow me to replace Caged Sun with The Immortal Sun. While the crew cannot sacrifice a creature in the way that Angrath could, I already have two sacrifice outlets in the form of Butcher of the Horde and Immersturm Predator, so I am confident that this change shall not severely hurt this deck.

seshiro_of_the_orochi, that is an excellent card, but it requires that the stolen creature be sacrificed immediately, and it is also a one-time effect, and I am seeking a repeatable effect.

I think that I shall replace Angrath with Captivating Crew in my red/white/black deck, as that deck already has two sacrifice outlets in the form of Butcher of the Horde and Immersturm Predator, but, as for my red/green/black deck, I have actually found several cards that would work for it, which I shall compile into a list.

That is an impressive list of creatures that sacrifice other creatures, so I now need to decide which of them I shall put into my deck; does anyone here have any suggestions?

I think the deck might need might need 1 or 2 solid sac outlets. Something like Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder or Butcher of the Horde.

Even Dimir House Guard is interesting because it can be a free outlet or transmute into a different powerful 4 drop like Anointed Procession or Smothering Tithe.

There are a few other, "Oops, lethal" card i was looking at were Rally the Ancestors and Boros Charm. Rallying back a few creatures with a sac outlets and a payoff like Cruel Celebrant can easily lay down a lot of damage at instant speed. Instant speed double strike can get a surprise commander kill. The ability to protect your board is icing on the cake.

I really like Offspring's Revenge. Though it is probably too slow. But i mean, the kitty is cute so... playable.

Ruinous Ultimatum is pretty silly too. I think cheaper board wipes are more effective since all of your creatures dying it kind of the point.

Sounds fun!

I'm always in favour of flavour builds with themed categories.

Just be aware that you do sometimes have to shove some non-themed cards in, to make such decks work.

I was devastated when I played my Triple A deck in Battle for Zendikar Standard that I couldn't make it all Allies, but it needed Butcher of the Horde to make it win.

I just looked up the ruling while writing this comment Marionette Master 's ability checks on resolution so you would deal 8 and the second trigger would deal 0. With having to use Refurbish to reanimate God-Pharoah's Gift it is doubtful that you will draw another. Especially considering that you are on the self mill plan. Some sac outlets that I think are much better are Cartel Aristocrat Blood Bairn Butcher of the Horde
