Mortician Beetle Discussion

I'd go up to 4 Village Rites .
Card suggestions: Mortician Beetle , Pawn of Ulamog , Smothering Abomination , new card Bone Shards. (tappedout doesn't have bone shards but u can google it, it's basically bone splinters but lets you discard a card or sac a creature, and kills planeswalkers too)
Daemogoth Titan reminds me of this 9/9 elemental from shadowmoor or one of those sets thats B/G hybrid mana and makes you sacrifice a creature whenever it attacks but I forgot what it is. Nevermind it's Doomgape which is kinda bad so scratch that. For some reason my memory thought it was 4-5 cmc.

With only 3 mana rocks 35 lands is about where you need to be. Mortician Beetle could go.

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.
Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel Flip.

Cool deck +1
Could definitely use some single creature protection because your CMDR is gonna take heat for a multitude of reason. I like Cloudshift or Restoration Angel . Those are very synergetic with your cmdr as well as some creatures.
Also think you should weigh the value of some of your treasure token generators and perhaps replace for sac creatures. Demon's Disciple .
Whip of Erebos is tiiiiiight yo..

Cool deck but might I suggest Carrion Feeder or Viscera Seer for a more reliable sac outlet and possibly Mortician Beetle or Bloodbriar for some more value. When I goldfished a few times I would draw into a morbid creature but have no way of triggering morbid.
I found that Putrid Leech is just not that good in most situations. Face value you have a 2 mana 2/2 that each turn can become a 4/4 for a price.
4x Festerhide Boar seems like a bit much seeing as its cmc 4. I would include it as a 3 of.
I also think that the 4x Ash Barrens is too much. Most of the time they will just slow you down. I would go to 2x ash barrens and replace them with a basic of each type.
