Carnival of Souls

Enchantment

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, you lose 1 life and add (Black) to your mana pool.

I looked until the cards starting with F on scryfall, and here are some card recommendations I have. I don't often play aristocrats decks, so I'm sorry if this isn't very helpful.

Removal: Avatar of Woe, Defile, Dismember

Reanimation: All Hallow's Eve, Balthor the Defiled, Exhume, Dance of the Dead

Ramp: Blood Pet, Blood Vassal, Cabal Ritual, Culling the Weak

Other: Carnival of Souls

You might like these: Carnival of Souls, Earthcraft, Jaheira, Friend of the Forest, Illusionist's Bracers, Black Market, Life and Limb, Awakening, Druids' Repository, Zulaport Cutthroat, Neko-Te, Phyrexian Altar, Sprout Swarm, Saproling Symbiosis, Spontaneous Generation

Personally I would cut these: Golgari Locket, Druidic Satchel, Sporeweb Weaver, Necrogenesis, Saproling Migration, Verdant Force, Butcher of Malakir, Verdant Embrace, Feed the Serpent, Status / Statue, Elvish Farmer

Hello!

I'd recommend adding in sac outlets that allow you to kill your own stuff easier, such as Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar. Meanwhile, if you wanted to get more use out of permanents entering the battlefield, you could run Altar of the Brood.

Zulaport Cutthroat is also really nice for providing additional redundancy for Blood Artist, and Bastion of Remembrance fulfills a similar role. You can also include Carnival of Souls if you really wanted to for more mana. Pair with Pawn of Ulamog for more mana shenanigans.

I'd also recommend running more removal, such as Nature's Claim or Return to Nature as something like Rest in Peace or Grafdigger's Cage completely screws you over and you don't currently have many cheap ways to respond to those type of effects. Krosan Grip is also great for this. If you want it on a creature, Reclamation Sage is great as it's fairly cheap and you can recur it; Caustic Caterpillar is another option.

In addition, creatures like Reassembling Skeleton and Gravecrawler are also great for additional sacrifice fodder.

Looks good. Echoing Return, Carnival of Souls, and Thrumming Stone might be worth consideration.

sfolsom2006 theres the problem... I usually win by turn 4 lol don't need the card draw... jokes aside some card draw combos that have been good

  1. Final Parting into Vilis, Broker of Blood & Reanimate which you can definitely do on budget, and when you reanimate vilis you auto draw 8 cards because of the life loss from reanimate

  2. Skullclamp which you can keep killing off your shadowborn and drawing more which also fits with your Dictate of Erebos (mana for skull clamp is the only hard part but can be solved by adding Carnival of Souls or some other kind of ritual or spells say like Skirge Familiar

  3. Vilis, Broker of Blood if you dont have shadowborn apostles to sac for razaketh grab vilis instead and you can cast shadowborn for life and draw more... then you will have enough to grab razzy and win.

  4. Peer into the Abyss if you play this and you draw rituals or even just cast shadowborn sac get razaketh, then tutor songs of the damned you can win

  5. Just tutor these options doesn't matter what tutors just have some.

you have lots more draw options than the original deck so you should be good. Just think outside the box and strategies will pop up. Weird things that you would have never thought of.

I own my deck in paper but i proxy a few like grim monolith, city of traitors, and divine top.. don't be afraid to proxy you can make some solid ones.

"Also, I have no idea how to give you credit for the original deck construction, is there a place I can tag you for credit?"

This is usually done by putting a hyperlink in the description then posting the website so people can click on it if need be. Thanks for asking and it's all good I appreciate you actually trying lol. do let me know when you fix your problems with the deck i would like to hear how yours goes.

Ayara, First of Locthwain and Zulaport Cutthroat literally counter Carnival of Souls negative effects and it you run Bontu's Monument things get even better. You don’t drop it turn one, just when your ready to make your move or have stabilized.

Cloudstone Curio works amazingly here. Ive ran it since my original build and never have questioned its usefulness. You should reconsider and do some testing.
