@Basshunter: Thanks for the input. There are a few things I feel the need to justify keeping in though.

The primary reason I have Paragon of Open Graves and Hero's Blade is so I can easily buff up Sarevok, causing his ability to drain extra life when it triggers. Death-Priest of Myrkul is somewhat expensive, but when he's out, I just got to pay a mana at the end of each turn to ensure I maintain a consistent fuel supply for Cultist (and a lot of my token generation is zombies anyway so... bigger dead dudes.). Similar vein, Palace Siege allows me to sac something to Cultist then play it again on the same turn, which goes real good with Gray Merchant of Asphodel for life gain and Doomed Dissenter for a free Zombie token, if I just don't sac Gravecrawler to play it again cause it cheap.

Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon and Squelching Leeches are mostly there to be big beefy bois if I need them, but yeah, of the suggestions you've made, I'd probably swap them for Black Market Connections and Priest of Forgotten Gods to net me some more card draw. Ophiomancer, Grave Titan and Phyrexian Altar are also on my radar.

Not a fan of Skullclamp, at least in this deck. I'd need either altars or Yahenni, Undying Partisan out to actually get consistent value out of it, otherwise I'd need to pay for another sac outlet.

its a really nice deck idea, but in my opinion, you got

  1. too much stuff in your deck that doesnt fit to the theme like Squelching Leeches, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Paragon of Open Graves, Infernal Scarring, Grasping Shadows  Flip, Hero's Blade and maybe some others..

  2. you are really high cmc for a sac-deck. maybe upgrade to a lower cmc and faster deck..i.e. change Diabolic Tutor with Diabolic Intent, Death-Priest of Myrkul, Stir the Sands or Palace Siege is expensive too - and they dont even fit very well to the theme. You can change your reanimation-spells to low cmc like Reanimate or Animate Dead aswell

  3. To get rid of the fuel-problem, get some cards like Black Market Connections (awesome here), Blight Mound, Ophiomancer, Grave Titan ...

  4. Upgrade sac-outlets: Phyrexian Altar, Priest of Forgotten Gods, Viscera Seer, Skullclamp

So all together you should fit the theme more, search for cheaper cmc cards that do the same and get some more token-stuff

SabbothDLOA it's all finished, and I tagged you in a comment over on it. Says the TCGPlayer low is $150. So, I'm hoping that gives you a little wiggle room to splurge on something like a Phyrexian Altar or Necropotence!

Profet93 Most of the combos here are based around sacrificing Gravecrawler to Phyrexian Altar to generate , then using that to recast Gravecrawler from the graveyard to be sacrificed again. The third card in each of the combos provides the payoff through a "whenever a creature dies" trigger like Diregraf Captain, "whenever a creature enters" trigger like Wayward Servant, or counting the number of time a creature dies (in this case, as many as you want) with Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant or Rise of the Dread Marn.

The Ashnod's Altar + Gravecrawler + Rooftop Storm combo provides infinite . Similar to above, you sacrifice Crawler to Altar to create . Here, though, Rooftop Storm allows you to graveyard-cast Crawler for free, so you don't spend any resources to generate mana.

Goldberserkerdragon I've learned that very few times things are truly self-evident, and what's obvious to one person can be obscure to someone else. It's all a matter of experience.

oo note on wincons! You can use Shirei to torture everyone to death, but there is also the sorcery speed infinite loop with Living Death, Thrilling Encore + Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed,

and the Nether Traitor + Phyrexian Altar + something that makes a token loop

Sweet deck! I like the mass drain strat, seems like it would be very effective if the table lets you live past turn 5. I know mine wouldn't! I highly recommend Furystoke Giant, Birthing Pod, and Phyrexian Altar, the first of which especially for your style of deck, the amount of damage you can get off that giant is pretty unreal especially if you're not pumping tokens to attack, which seems accurate for this deck. I also think you underrated Vicious Shadows, though it might be more redundant in your deck it can push out tons of damage and is great for taking out those pesky blue players. Orcish Bowmasters and Cryptolith Rite have also been all stars in my deck, I'd highly recommend at least testing them out. Hatred could also be a super fun way to get a surprise win off something like Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. Thanks again for your comment on my deck, Prossh EDH Tokens/Sac, and I hope you like the suggestions!
