Those are some good ideas. I don't think I'll ever be in a position to invest in Mana Confluence , but the other two looks reasonable to get. I could slot them in any of my decks.
At the moment I'm investing most of my money in building decks to give away to friends who are either in worse economic situations than me, or haven't gotten into the game yet. I am going to order a bunch of Gruul cards for a Grumgully, the Generous deck I'm putting together for one of my mates pretty soon (hint, it will include every persist card I can afford). I'll check out mtglands and include some land cards for myself ;)
Thanks a lot for the tip!

People have always strived for something bigger. Something bigger. Some Johnnies of the world never wanted their Arcum Dagsson to be just one color, the resident Timmies always thirsted for an Omnath, Locus of Rage that wasn't confined to just Gruul. Or at least, I did. This strategy of having a bunch of tutors used to be very shaky, because half your deck would be recursion, tutors, and reanimation to keep your pseudo-general alive. Luckily, with the printing of Sisay, Weatherlight Captain, you have a legendary tutor in the command zone, and now, you only have to dedicate about 5 slots to finding your commander. The rest is up to you!
Personally, the commander I've wanted to try this on has been the face of Grixis Herself, Marchesa, the Black Rose (sorry, Lord of Tresserhorn). You get a ridiculous amount by adding Selesnya. You get enter the battlefield and death triggers like no other: Guardian Project, Stonehorn Dignitary, and my personal favorite, Gutter Grime. You get amazing ramp, like Sakura-Tribe Elder and Viridian Emissary, and the best sac outlet in the game, Fanatical Devotion.
But there's one thing I haven't talked about: Rhythm of the Wild and friends (Grumgully, the Generous, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Good-Fortune Unicorn, etc) . These cards are broken, leading to pseudo-infinites, locking your opponents out of their combat steps forever, invincible boardstates, hundreds of tokens per turn cycle, etc. So, what do you think? Do you have any commanders that could use this treatment? Any suggestions for cards for this deck? Well, thanks for sitting through this ramble, and as always, Happy Tapping!

@ AintNotGlobeEarth: Yes he is. He's one of the best casual tribal commanders and he also enables some unique vampire or razaketh combos. Eminence is always a really strong ability for a commander and the deck can also sneak some combat wins in games if he can't combo fast enough. In mardu colors you have also access to most of the strongest EDH cards atm, like Dockside, Ad Nauseum, PitA, Underworld Breach, Tymna, Razaketh, Necropotence, Opposition Agent and all other good mardu tutors: _ _
@ Commander_JAR: Very good question, they're both very strong commanders for casual EDH and I think they are both fringe competetive (please don't forget that fringe competetive is Tier 2!) because of the overall "high" cost of the combo (Kodama + Toggo + bounceland + outlet). We haven't played against a lot of competitive Toggo and Kodama decks lately (which can also show that the deck isn't that popular in cEDH). I think there's no gruul deck atm which is better than tier 2, BUT I think that Grumgully, the Generous, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed and maybe Neyith of the Dire Hunt/Grand Warlord Radha are still slightly better. The potential of the deck definitely exists, but I also think that it is unfortunately a bit too slow in the current Turbo AdNaus meta, but in casual it is a very good and funny deck to play and win!

Hey, Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is not $10 it's $5 and is right up your alley if you like Mayhem Devil. Korvold is a much stronger Commander with his repeatable draw/grows himself than Rakdos. Jund Goblins could work since Goblin tokens can be saced to Korvold and it gives you Grumgully, the Generous + Scuzzback Marauders combo which Mayhem is a win condition.

Hey, here's some Commanders from the Scryfall list and cards that are $1 or less that are good with the Commander:

First, I'm stealing Mortuary-Succession combo for my Korvold. And adding Deathrender because Korvold's a piece in that loop.
Personally, in sac decks you don't want to use too many instants/sorceries. You should really attempt to assemble some Persist combos, with cards like Rhythm of the Wild and Grumgully, the Generous, Melira and a sac outlet. You can probably get 3-5 sac outlets and 3+ Persist disablers, as well as a good handful of Persist creatures, of which Rendclaw Trow and Scuzzback Marauders are best as they can also be used with with Mortuary-Succession loop. Add some black ones though.
Then, you could run Commune with the Gods which, although a 1-of, hits every single one of your main combo pieces in the deck.
I don't know how much ramp you're running, but you can get to about 4 1-mana dorks(more if you want ones that sac themselves to add mana) and a good 3-6 2-mana rocks, although dorks are better here because you can sacrifice them. I'd use Sakura-Tribe Elder as a great one.
Also, if you're using Succession, get a few Relentless Rats or Rat Colony. Also Seven Dwarves. Add Thrumming Stone, and basically make sure that most of your deck is either ramp, Rats or Combo pieces. Mostly because it's funny and gives Succession another use other than combo.
