Lokotor on Marchesa, The Black Rose - Primer

jeannieboef I have not particularly needed more than the one so far, but I think in a more creature heavy meta, or if cards like Grave Pact / Dictate of Erebos weren't in your budget then running a few extra copies of Fleshbag Marauder etc.. would be advised.

The main hang-up with them is that if you don't have other creatures with +1/+1 counters out then it's basically a 3 mana Innocent Blood and that's not all that great. so it needs some setup usually. this isn't a big ask, but it can lead to it being a card that is just sitting in your hand for a while, so you need to ensure you have a good creature density in your list to avoid that.

the budget list runs a few more creatures in this line of thinking, such as Skinrender and Ravenous Chupacabra

MindAblaze, Trinket Mage is a great suggestion. There are also some wizard synergies in this deck, so another plus.

Massacar, I continue to go back and forth on Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. As a dedicated black mage, these often end up in my decks! As this deck has evolved, it’s become more focused on being aggressive with +1+1 counters and flying to get damage through, and a little less focused on value. I would probably swap in Dictate before Grave Pact for Flash shenanigans and easier casting cost.

Would you consider Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos? Since you will be cheating cards out that then get sac'd before coming back, this would allow an oppressive synergy to use against opponents.

Love the thought with this deck! First thought I would have would be finding a way to include Dictate of Erebos and/or Grave Pact. They're a little pricey, but would be a huge deal with all the other sacrificing your doing here. Would also look at Phyrexian Reclamation for simple graveyard recursion.

To go with the trick or treat vibe you could potentially run Nekusar, the Mindrazer as a commander. You get some treats (extra cards) but only your opponent's get the trick. Plus it's in the right colors to run a neat sacrifice shell with cards like Butcher of Malakir, Ruthless Deathfang, Grave Pact, and Dictate of Erebos, plus it is easily run with the cards that have been suggested. Since you're new, Thraximundar may be a better commander as Nekusar takes some experience to run effectively. But it's up to you, I'm just offering some suggestions. Feel free to link the deck when you have something :)

You seem to have a firm grasp of what this guy is suppose to do. Keyword soup and bash.

Anyways, here's some tech

Sigarda, Host of Herons - hexproof and flying and offers protection against things like Grave Pact and eldrazi

Filling the Graveyard

Stinkweed Imp

Golgari Thug

Golgari Grave-Troll

Doom Whisperer

Stitcher's Supplier

Lastly, Necrotic Ooze because it's a really cool card in graveyard decks
