Ok. I guess Null Brooch is my one true pet card above them all. It fits anywhere haha! Let's see. First, I didn't add Bloodghast because it can't block. I definitely need to add in Nether Traitor. I wasn't sure whether I should add cards like Plague Spitter or not because they are creatures and they could die (unless I get Avacyn out fast). This is why I chose Noxious Field instead. It will stay around along with Death Pits of Rath even when all creatures are dead on the board and I will still have a way to kill all creatures every turn. I definitely want to add Harvester of Souls and Pitiless Plunderer. They synergize beautifully with this deck. Creatures that gain me life or make others lose life for creatures dying isn't something I'm sure I want to add. I will need to test what I have more before I decide. I don't think Body Launderer will be the best for this deck. I'm not sure I would add it. Vanishing Verse isn't really necessary. I have WAY more than enough removal as it is. I can try and squeeze in Crypt of Agadeem but I don't know if it will get much value. I'm going to add Citanul Flute in here as well. I mainly chose Athreos, God of Passage as the commander just to make my creatures come out even faster unless someone wanted to pay the life. Hopefully I will finish updating this today and run some tests. Thank you SufferFromEDHD for all of your suggestions and help. I really appreciate it!

This is a neat build. At first I was turned off by the redundancy of the creatures overlapping with Atheros ability. I figured ETB/LTB effects would be the best way to abuse Atheros. But I am sucker for gimmicks/themes and I like the direction of this.

Bloodghast and Nether Traitor are auto includes to this strategy.

PlagueSpitter would be an upgrade to Noxious Field.

Deathgreeter, Cruel Celebrant, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Harvester of Souls, Body Launderer, Pitiless Plunderer, etc. type effects might be the engine missing from this strategy.

Vanishing Verse is slowly becoming one of my favorite removal spells. It would round out the playset of Orzhov exile.

Crypt of Agadeem on theme land.

And as always Null Brooch = <3

Cut Suggestions=

  • Ichor Wellspring, great rate for drawing but you have plenty of draw spells + commander.
  • Gravecrawler, Nether Traitor, Bloodghast, Endless Cockroaches since you are adding a level of recursion into the deck, these guys are obsolete, since we would rather have cards that have ETB or dies triggers. We can re-evaluate if you are having problems finding creatures to sac.
  • Darkness, hopefully with your lifegain this card would be dead.
  • Dauthi Voidwalker, while an awesome card it doesn't really fit the mold, and we need to make cuts.
  • Swiftfoot Boots, I would find out how often your commander gets hated off the board before deciding if you need this.
  • Demonic Pact, I love the fact that you can get around the negative of this card, but it is slow and we need to cut cards.
  • Weatherlight Compleated, slow.

Add Suggestions=

Edit= - Bolas's Citadel can also be considered card draw.

Hey, glad if it helps at all.

But yep, the haste on Nether Traitor really makes it shine as a recurring creature because it will always get a little damage before it gets saced. And Deadly Dispute is a great card, and I love it so much for the flavor. Being able to pay off the dispute either in blood or in gold is such a mono-black card : )

Best of luck with the deck. Looks awesome.

Niko9, Actually the Nether Traitor and Deadly Dispute are pretty damn nice cards. Had no clue that they existed. Before i used Reassembling Skeleton which was way too slow, but the Nether Traitor Can work as a nice attacker and work pretty well in the deck too. I'll totally think about putting these on the sideboard and playing them in some matchups. Thanks!

I really like the use of Eradicator Valkyrie I've definitely had games where it has run away with things and people are like, what is that card : )

And I'm not sure if any of these would help, but here are a few that I've found useful in a sac deck.

Mishra's Factory because sometimes you just need one more body to clear their board : ) But you do need a lot of black for you creatures, so I'm not sure if it would work.

Deadly Dispute is just such good value and it's one of the best spells to cast on their end step.

Nether Traitor is great fuel for sacs, and with a couple on the board can really add up damage.

Shambling Ghast goes so well with effects like Braids, Arisen Nightmare The ghast can sometimes effectively double your removal.

But your list looks pretty solid as is, I just figured to throw out a few things that have worked for me : ) Looks awesome!

Bloodghast and Nether Traitor efficient Ayara triggers.

Body Snatcher decent Ayara fodder.

Moira, Urborg Haunt sweet synergy.
