Malevolent Awakening Discussion

Lets look at what we should be adding,

Bontu the Glorified , Bontu's Monument , Malevolent Awakening

I'd remove Revel in Riches . You really do want to be able to play that at flash speed to get your value from it.

Phyrexian Arena There is better card draw you can get.

Ghostly Prison With death triggers there are ways to remove your opponents creatures rather then worry about making them pay 2 mana per to attack.

Anointed Procession you can do without. Creatures that die and create tokens will create double the tokens from Teysa Karlov so she herself is like Anointed Procession .

I'd lose the four "Sorcery" cards you have. If anything I'd replace Black Sun's Zenith with Toxic Deluge .

Sword of the Animist . Only good if you are attacking a lot.

Skullclamp That one can go either way. I opted to remove it from my build. I found better options.

Blade of the Bloodchief

Thrilling Encore If done right you won't need your opponents creatures.

Doomblade and Fatal Push Focus on using Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact

I suggest,

Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid for extra lands.

Malevolent Awakening for creature recursion.

Archon of Justice for recurable removal.

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder for tokens on creature cast.

Bontu's Monument mana reduction and death trigger on creature cast.

Bontu the Glorified a sac outlet and death trigger in one.

Greed for card draw.

Erebos, God of the Dead for card draw and opponent lifegain prevention.

Tainted Remedy a more powerful turn opponent lifegain against themself.

Hall of Heliod's Generosity bring back those enchantments.

Crypt Ghast , Bubbling Muck and Dark Ritual for early-mid mana ramp.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Cabal Coffers and Expedition Map get out the most powerful way to ramp in black.

Butcher of Malakir creature removal. Don't let the high cmc turn you away from him. Black can ramp easily enough to get him out.

Smothering Tithe best new white card that can ramp any colour.

Vampiric Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent and Enlightened Tutor to get your combo pieces on the field ASAP.

Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening are solid creature recursion.

Bontu the Glorified is a sac outlet and death trigger. Value.

Burnished Hart is good to fetch a couple basic lands. Always helpful.

Bubbling Muck No explanation required.

Toxic Deluge Board wipe that gets around indestructible.

You should look at adding Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Spawning Pit , Viscera Seer and Altar of Dementia for sac outlets.

For sac fodder look to add Archon of Justice , Doomed Traveler , Doomed Dissenter , Myr Sire , Tithe Taker , Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation to name a few.

For card draw look to Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex and Greed .

Ramp using Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

Recur your creatures using Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .

Garruk's Wake wipes the board leaving your stuff intact then cast Command the Dreadhorde to take control what ever number of planeswalkers and creatures are in your opponents graveyard.

In my opinion there is a lot of room for improvement. No disrespect meant.

I suggest finding a spot for the following cards.

For recursion

Phyrexian Reclamation , Malevolent Awakening

Prevent Opponents from gaining Life

Tainted Remedy , Erebos, God of the Dead provided your meta plays lifegain.

Lifegain for Yourself

Deathgreeter

Card Draw

Greed , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex

Ramp

Smothering Tithe , Burnished Hart , Knight of the White Orchid , Crypt Ghast , Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , Cabal Coffers , Ancient Tomb replacing Temple of the False God

Sacrifice Outlets

Spawning Pit , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Altar of Dementia ,

Replace Elspeth, Knight-Errant with Liliana, Dreadhorde General

Boardwipes

Toxic Deluge , In Garruk's Wake

After a boardwipe use Command the Dreadhorde take control of opponents creatures and/or Planeswalkers from their graveyard to use as you see fit.

Other cards to strongly consider would be

God-Eternal Bontu , Bontu's Monument , Expedition Map

There is much more I can say and recommend but this is enough for now.

Good luck and happy brewing.

I suggest Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening for recursion.

Athreos, God of Passage is also a good one.

Knight of the White Orchid is good ramp.

No Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers ? Best ramp combo for black.

You can also check out my deck for more ideas if you want.
