Ayara, First of Locthwain has witch vibes and Ophiomancer and Chittering Witch and Grim Haruspex kinda synergize. Surprised Cauldron Familiar isnt already in here?

If you want a nice lock, either Ophiomancer or Bitterblossom to pair with Contamination .

cfost827 You don't lose too much consistently without Scrubland. It shouldn't matter. I've tried Smothering Tithe a few times, and it's decent, but it's too slow for me personally. I'd include it with Revel in Riches if I wanted that package or if your meta is heavy blue/draw oriented. I also wouldn't skimp on Ophiomancer. I underestimated her at first, but if you play a few games of her, you'll see just how much value she pumps out with sac outlets. I play Blinkmoth Nexus because it's cheap sac fodder at best and a colorless land that can chump block at worst. However, the cool thing about aristocrats is that there's so much redundancy that any few cuts likely won't matter. You can customize the deck to your liking, especially since it's hard to say what's the absolute best. This isn't cEDH after all.

Awesome, thanks for the feedback Masterful! I think another reason is that I'm not running Scrubland since I just don't want to spend the money for it currently. Maybe in the future! But I'll try replacing Aria Mesa to start with a plains.

Also, have you ever considered adding in Smothering Tithe? It's usually just an EDH staple and my buddy thought it can never hurt to add it (Unless you play tested it already of course). Blinkmoth Nexus or Ophiomancer were 2 cards that I was thinking of possibly replacing..but we shall see.

I would cut Meteor Golem for Kokusho, the Evening Star as it triggers Ayara, First of Locthwain's ability and can be an aerial threat by itself... if it dies it goes with a devastating effect...

If not Kokusho, i would rank both Ophiomancer and Ogre Slumlord higher than Meteor Golem because of the same reasons... fit the theme, trigger with you commanders ability (as well as the produced tokens) and supply your board with chump blockers - well, in case of Ophiomancer the token can be your kind of boardcontrol because they come with deathtouch... Noone wants to lose their big timmey creatures to a 1/1 deathtouch token :D

Sooo what do you want for this deck? Do you need token producers? If that is the route you want to go down, there are some other cards you should look at:

Sacrifice outlets. I see you already have Viscera Seer, that's a really good one, but you might also consider Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar, and maybe Spawning Pit. Also Vampiric Rites.

More aristocrats. You are in the right colors for these, so this shouldn't be hard to fill out. Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble; I think there might be some red ones that make the creature itself deal damage to any target? If so, those should be an auto include what with the assassins having deathtouch.

As far as actual tokens go, it seems you mostly have one-off effects; if you want more of these, you should look for cards that get you tokens with a high amount of efficiency. If you had enough mana rocks and stuff like that I would suggest Kuldotha Rebirth, but for now I don't think that is going to do it as often as you want. Probably you want stuff like Krenko's Command, Dragon Fodder, Hordeling Outburst, etc. for this category.

In terms of token producing that recursively gives you value, I would suggest Assemble the Legion for sure; also, maybe Ophiomancer (expensive but very good with a sacrifice outlet) and any of the Goonies would be good, though technically they aren't tokens, they just come back a lot (Reassembling Skeleton, Nether Traitor, Bloodsoaked Champion, Bloodghast, Tenacious Dead, either Squee would work). If you really do want tokens to come out and be there at the same time and start to build up a board state with them, you should probably use ... well, I dunno, you're in white. Figure it out.

Also, one last thing: Cathars' Crusade.

In terms of what to cut, I would look reaaally hard at the top of your curve. I would probably drop Gravewaker at least. I think Necrotic Hex is probably good in your deck, because you have so many creatures, but just in general I think it's better in a deck that actually cares about either the word "sacrifice" or the zombies for being zombies rather than the zombies being bodies. Lena seems bad here, I don't know how many nontoken creatures you'll have. I think Crush Contraband could get cut for more efficient removal, maybe Anguished Unmaking or Utter End if you want a budget version. Moan of the Unhallowed is ... straight up bad I think.

Let me know if these were helpful or if you need more cuts.

Hi valentin74, sorry for the late reply. I moved my deck to moxfield [(https://www.moxfield.com/decks/RGKGxJ83YEOEaD8rYhNBBw)] and rarely check tappedout nowadays. Academy Rector is a nice card, but it's too expensive for me so I didn't want to buy it, but if I had one I would for sure play it like you suggested. Ophiomancer is cool, but Field of Souls is a combo piece and has more potential on those turns helping you go off and deal a ton of damage to your opponents with the drain effects. Expedition Map I would only add if you also play the Urborg+Coffers combo. Ancient Tomb and Caverns are budget excludes for my deck. Play them if you own them, same goes for Agadeem's Awakening  Flip
