Also Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder counts any creature spell you cast, and then it creates black Thrulls. Therefore, Ancestral Statue can return itself to your hand for the recast. Combined with Phyrexian Altar, it creates infinite ETB + death triggers, or with Ashnod's Altar it creates infinite mana + infinite ETB + death triggers.
It's actually quite a brilliant combo-y suggestion.

So a similar but cheaper cmc alternative would be Butcher Ghoul. Also Putrid Goblin for a persist version. If you want a more expensive card that can help generally try looking at Cauldron of Souls. Also, in my opinion Genesis Chamber is one of the most underrated cards in commander, especially in terms of generating sac fodder for things like Phyrexian Altar or anything that benefits from frequent sac targets.
What specific qualities do you want for your sac fodder? Is it just low cmc self recurring, or anything else you are looking for?
As for your Mana, it's looking better. Still lean for my tastes.

Mj3913 That's true. My concern there would be that it might feel more like a faerie deck if the board state is more often Alela, a few faerie tokens, and a couple of dragons. Building around Ruthless Deathfang, Boneyard Scourge, Scourge of Nel Toth, Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Yosei, the Morning Star, Martyr's Bond, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Phyrexian Tower could be interesting. Turning those tokens into other resources would help it feel more like a dragon deck.

Cool deck! Thoughts on these? Cloudstone Curio, Pearl Medallion, Cloud Key, Foundry Inspector, Ranger of Eos, Palace Jailer, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar, Myr Retriever, Workshop Assistant, Junk Diver, Scrap Trawler, Mycosynth Golem, Dross Scorpion, Krark-Clan Ironworks, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle

Sumradagnoth - Thrilling Encore, Nightmare Shepherd, and Victimize. Thrilling encore, while a good and probably underrated card, never made an impact. I cast it twice and and both times the board was wiped immediately after lol. It's also not vital to my gameplan. So that's out for now.
Didn't get to play with nightmare shepherd. I like the idea of copying Syr Konrad if he is removed, but it seems like a weird hoop to jump through to get it to work. And it hoses bringing other creatures back so there's that. I could totally be underestimating this card. The combo I put in seemed way more powerful though, and it's not a card I'm attached to so out it goes. Victimize is awesome and was a hard choice to cut but I had to make one somewhere.
Overall I could have probably made better cuts. But some cards I have a personal attachment to for one reason or another and want to keep in (i.e. the masterpiece avatar of woe I pulled at release).
Art-n-Lutherie - I definitely need to get Phyrexian Altar in here too. It's a little pricey and have no more trade credit so this will have to wait for a little bit. It will definitely be on my next order though. Good call!
