ChaoSpydr I would love the instant speed but the tokens not being Humans is a deal-breaker for this deck. I can't afford the loss of more stats on Lieutenant and Champion, since they are part of the main attackers together with the Demons

As for more card advantage, I slotted in Grim Haruspex in place of Demon of Catastrophes (also to reduce overall CMC). The Bugler is ok but it's "drawing" ability is a bit clunky for me, especially since I have some >2 CMC cards and some non-creature spells too

That said, I really appreciate the suggestions and you liking the deck. Thanks!

Grim Haruspex / Dark Prophecy might be better than your other card draw engines, although the latter is a little hard to cast in 3c

I'm having the same feels. I just picked one up because I wanted some more sustained card draw for a black deck that runs too even a mix of tokens and 'real' cards to make reliable use of Grim Haruspex and co. I don't want more one-and-done Sign in Blood -style draw at the moment.

So, any more ideas in that vein?

Chandra's Incinerator is basically a one-sided board wipe

Young Pyromancer one of the best token generators ever printed, Mogg War Marshal isn't as good but still can be three creatures for two mana with reanimator synergy. Chandra, Acolyte of Flame gives temporary token but they still get the job done considering they are sac fodder.

Oketra's Monument , Monastery Mentor , Hero of Precinct One , Sedgemoor Witch , and Desecrated Tomb give back a bit of your commanders cost. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder generates 4 tokens every time you cast your commander since it counts as a creature spell with 4 cmc.

Zulaport Cutthroat and Cruel Celebrant are mini purphoros in this deck

Village Rites is just a good value card draw, same with Grim Haruspex .

qwrtyp Thanks! Search for Blex I agree would be good. The card itself wouldn't fit into the budget that I was going for. Looking back I probably would change out the Harrow , Roiling Regrowth , amd Khalni Heart Expedition . For a Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , and a Springbloom Druid to have more creatures to sacrifice and trigger both Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper

I don't know what your budget is, but this seems like an ideal deck to be running some sort of fetchlands, even the common variants. They let you recur Bloodghast an additional time and even grant extra damage from Mayhem Devil . Hofri Ghostforge and Rekindling Phoenix feel quite slow relative to the power of their effect. It also seems a shame not to have as many black creatures available to sacrifice as possible for the sake of Teysa, Orzhov Scion , although I could also see Pawn of Ulamog fulfilling a similar role. Maybe something like Gutterbones , Reassembling Skeleton , or a combo of Relentless Dead and Gravecrawler could prove useful. There's also Grim Haruspex as another way to refuel or Gate to the Afterlife if pitching cards is important.
