king-saproling, thanks for the suggestions! I had Consuming Vapors in the first iteration but decided at 4cmc there was better removal like Kaya's Wrath. Bolas's Citadel would be great!

I can see why you don't want a second Emrakul, but on the other hand, maybe 1 in the sideboard? I know it would make the deck a bit more clunky and have less odds of going off, but if someone exiles him or gets rid of him in a match up by casting: Journey to Nowhere , Day of Judgment , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Consuming Vapors , and Blessed Alliance then you will lose. If you have 1 in the sideboard then you can include him and you might be able to pull out.

You can certainly make it a viable deck without sinking Doubling Season money into it or turning it into a deck whose only goal is to Demonic Tutor into a combo. There's a lot of good stuff in here to build on.

Hardened Scales rounds out your Corpsejack Menace/Snek package.

You could probably lean a little into Saprolings, as well. Psychotrope Thallid is great card draw when your Commander makes Saprolings. Utopia Mycon is great for ramp. Tendershoot Dryad is a great lord for going wide. Night Soil , Saproling Burst , Verdant Embrace , Fertile Imagination , Fungal Sprouting , Scatter the Seeds , and Saproling Symbiosis are solid token producers. That last one is expensive, but I thought I'd just put it out there since it's old af.

There's great interaction in Saprolings, too. Morbid Bloom , Aura Mutation , Seed Spark are all pretty okay cards, and you're already running Death Mutation, Fungal Plots, and Necrogenesis.

As for cuts, if you're not doing broken combo things, Spikes are not good. Cruel Sadist , Sylvan Hierophant , Consuming Vapors , Heirloom Blade , Clockwork Vorrac , and Underworld Connections could probably be cut on card quality, alone.

I personally feel as if the deck is too dependent on the opponent's strategy to win: it only looks good if the opponent is playing creatures. Most decks that rely on these strategies use internal mechanics to manipulate their opponents' boards (such as Forbidden Orchard and Oath of Druids ). The deck will be amazing against creature decks without shroud but is unfavorable against most other matchups as you would end up with a handful of spells with no targets. Instead of focusing so hard on creature removal I'd add in more versatile cards like Collective Brutality .

You could consider Consuming Vapors , Abyssal Persecutor , and Hunted Horror . Sacrifice decks often go nicely with a dab of suicide.

And if your budget were unlimited I'd add in Phyrexian Obliterator and a dash of Gray Merchant of Asphodel as a kill-card. (You're not always going to be facing up against creatures but you're always going to be dealing with life total...barring Phyrexian Unlife )
