Nim Deathmantle + Ashnod's Altar + Priest of Gix / Priest of Urabrask is one combo that utilizes the commander to translate to a win.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Plague Belcher is one combo that does not require the commander to translate to a win.

Neither should be particularly pricey (though Phyrexian Alter is not really a card I would consider "budget") and both are competitively capable set ups.

Black always has access to the Opposition Agent + Maralen of the Mornsong combo as well.

I also own a Secret Lair pack of TWD and this is deck helps me to find a starting point to build something with These cards, so thx a lot for sharing your idea. As a Johnny player, I would include a few cards that flicker/bounce your Commander or copy her ability. Conjurer's Closet , Crystal Shard and Erratic Portal come into my mind. Creating more walker tokens is not only flavorful but also interesting as chump blockers!

I also recommend Carrion Feeder because this is a good combo card with your Gravecrawler and Skullclamp .

Furthermore, you need more lands. 31 is way too less for an average cmc of 3. Usually people tend to play at least 35 our 36 lands and 5 or more mana rocks.

TheVectornaut on Mono black sacrifice control deck

The biggest potential weakness I see in this deck is that there's a sort of "cost void" between your 1-drops and your big demons, and the biggest threats in the deck may not be the most mana efficient. For instance, I'd probably run Desecration Demon or Demon of Catastrophes in a sacrifice deck instead of Goremand . I imagine he's a pet card for you though, so maybe you could lean more into the reanimator angle to cheat him in quickly. Most modern versions seem to be running Goryo's Vengeance into Griselbrand and praetors still, but I tend to prefer the budget alternatives. Some additions to Blood for Bones and Gravewaker are repeated activation creatures like Hell's Caretaker and Whisper, Blood Liturgist . Unburial Rites is also fairly popular if you don't mind splashing white. For the discard, staples include Thoughtseize , Collective Brutality , Ransack the Lab , and Mind Rake . For sacrifice synergy, I think Smallpox and Sinister Concoction could be options too. I'm also a big fan of creatures that mill for this role such as Stitcher's Supplier (which helps to play the very useful Gravecrawler ) or the green Satyr Wayfinder and all its Mulch brethren. Reanimator lets you play other big threats too, some of which could be Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Eater of Hope , or Xathrid Demon to stick with the demon theme. Another card I see as being pretty expensive here is Soul Foundry . The aforementioned Hell's Caretaker can usually produce a similar result without the 1 mana tax every turn. Furthermore, the tokens it creates could interfere with Grim Haruspex , a card draw engine I usually prefer to Dark Prophecy (or maybe Harvester of Souls if I'm feeling spicy.) There is some downside in cutting noncreature permanents for their creature counterparts, so choose the option that is being hit by removal the least in your meta. If creature hate is a problem, maybe a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos could dissuade your opponents.

Hey theindigoeffect, I appreciate your comments earlier, so I found your deck and took a good look at it to see how I could help. I think you have the general idea right, but you are lacking awareness of certain cards and interactions that could really benefit your deck. If you are set on Tymaret, I found this other Tymaret deck on moxfield that, imho, is very close to where you want to be. Check it out:

First of all, you are trying to combine two themes which do not really mix, especially not with your chosen commander - discard and sacrifice. Discarding your opponents’ cards does not further your goals at all. What Tymaret does is sacrifice creatures, and that should be your focus.

You need recursive creatures like Gravecrawler , Nether Spirit , and Reassembling Skeleton .

Then you need cards that hurt the opponent when you sacrifice, like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat .

And other sacrifice outlets like Phyrexian Altar .

And cards to reanimate your and your opponents’ creatures, like Reanimate , Animate Dead , and Necromancy .

And more drawing and tutors to help find your pieces, like Night's Whisper , Faithless Looting , Wheel of Fortune , Gamble , Vampiric Tutor and Imperial Seal .

I can see fortelling it to set it up for a Carrion Feeder / Gravecrawler chain but that kind of feels like what Diregraf Colossus is already doing without the benefit of the tribal body itself.

Phyrexian Altar + Gravecrawler + any ETB damage / life loss effect, also any death-trigger damage / life loss effect, also any Storm spell you can cast = the biggest of winnings

The Gravecrawlers you're running there pair remarkably well with stuff like Bone Splinters and Village Rites. You may want to look into some of those options even if they're only for Sideboard for temporary use in/out against certain decks.

I really like some of your choices here; nice mix of old & new! +1
