This deck is great! I have been refining a Korvold, Fae-Cursed King land and creature sac deck, and this has given me some ideas.

For land recursion, I recommend Splendid Reclamation. With Ayula's Influence and Ashnod's Altar, I had 38 mana turn 7. It can really turn things around. For sacrificing lands, I like God-Eternal Bontu. It gives quite a bit of card advantage, and having a Korvold or Gitrog will double that.

Hey, looks like your going for a Zombie tribal theme.

Going to have to make some sacrifices of five drop Zombies and here's some advice. Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and The Scarab God are the only three you need the rest could be cut. Muldrotha, Grave Titan, Rooftop Storm and Liliana, Dreadhorde General are the only six drops you need.

I have a Zombie tribal Muldrotha deck that I made last year, Zombie Grave Wave (Budget). My deck is budget, $200, but it could give you some ideas and you can replace the budget alternatives I'm using with more expensive price cards that you have. More advice to improve your deck is to include Gravecrawler infinite combos since it's a Zombie.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Diregraf Captain/Plague Belcher/Bontu's Monument/Blood Artist/Vengeful Dead is an infinite combo to make all your opponents lose life. Sac Gravecrawler with Altar, use the one black mana to cast Gravecrawler from your graveyard and repeat. Gravecrawler + Altar is infinite casts of Gravecrawler from your graveyard which can be used with other cards. Diregraf Colossus is infinite 2/2 Zombies. Undead Augur/Secrets of the Dead/Guardian Project can draw into a win condition. Kill all your opponents creatures with Grave Pact.

Cards to consider cutting:

To also make room for more lands and other card upgrades this is more than 13 card suggestions to consider cutting. Many of these suggestions are good cards, but are very much outclassed by other better cards in your deck already or you could add with such a high budget.

20x total lands is not enough for a functioning Commander deck. Want at least 30-36 lands depending on how high the avg. CMC of your deck is and how many additional mana sources you include. The current avg. CMC is 3.7 which is too high. What's making it this high is too many high CMC Zombies especially five drops.

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Eldrazi Monument looks busted as hell I love it! I actually have Liliana, Death's Majesty and Midnight Reaper coming in the mail for this deck. I might consider Smokestack and Contamination, but this deck can be rather slow at times since it's definitely a snowball effect. I'm a little worried it would take longer to become an actual threat. I've been on the fence about God-Eternal Bontu all week. I like her a lot and she's a Zombie so she will get buffed by all the lords, but again the sacrificing permanents is what worries me. If there's a way I can pump out Zombies even faster I think this are all a must in.

Cards like Smokestack, Contamination and Eldrazi Monument have performed extremely well in my mono-black Ghoulcaller Gisa deck, though I understand they're not everyone's play style.

I'd include cards like Midnight Reaper & God-Eternal Bontu for more card draw, perhaps, and they double as zombies too.

Liliana, Death's Majesty can be a game winner as well, if you can protect her a couple turns, the one-sided wrath is great.

Most Gods or God-eternals are pretty good here. God-eternals are a "May" on their resilience ability. God-Eternal Bontu would be fun if this was a bit more weenie; as I could imagine loading up your graveyard & hand, then casting the commander.

I control a God-Eternal Bontu and have mutated a Dirge Bat under it. That creature dies and is put to the graveyard. Bontu's second triggered ability goes on the stack for the creature.

I can choose to leave both creature cards in my graveyard. I can choose to put both creature cards into my library, in either order, starting third from the top.

Now, is there one triggered ability that applies to each creature cards that made up the mutated creature (in which case, the above two choices are my only option)?

Or, once the creature cards separate, do I get different triggers for each card — or, is there some other way of having the option of moving one of the cards into my library, and leaving another in my graveyard?

I figure it's probably the former, but I haven't found anything solid yet. I've also bothered MaRo on his blog but it's almost as though he's a busy guy or something.

Nice list, if I could give one recommendation it would be to swap God-Eternal Bontu with Arvad the Cursed. You don't need the slow sac outlet from Bontu, or the card draw, Arvad for the same CMC will give you effectively another Day of Destiny.

That's just my opinion as a dirty anthem lover though, lol.
