Plague of Vermin
Starting with you, each player may pay any amount of life. Repeat this process until no one pays life. Each player puts a 1/1 black Rat creature token into play for each 1 life he or she paid this way.
DrukenReaps on Your Cheap Obscure Overperformers?
2 months ago
I only quickly perused EDHrec but pretty sure none of the following came up on the pages of the commanders I use them with. Each has done some impressive work at my table. I used sorting by Card Kingdom price on this website to find sub $2.
In Olivia, Crimson Bride I have Shifting Shadow. Since Olivia's attack reanimates Shifting Shadow ends up just giving me free creatures at effectively no cost to me. In a way it actually fuels the deck's plan.
In Ayara, First of Locthwain I have Aetherworks Marvel and Mimic Vat. This deck just loves getting more and more creatures into play. Both of the artifacts assist in doing that over and over again. Sometimes Aetherworks even drops in Plague of Vermin too, a finisher in that deck.
In Mairsil, the Pretender I have Captivating Crew, Chandra, Flamecaller, and Xathrid Gorgon. Seems to be a rare cheap commander to begin with... lol. Xathrid typically turns commanders off, highly effective card against the likes of Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Zacama, Primal Calamity. Chandra does an amazing job of filling up my graveyard. Every turn a new hand +1. Captivating Crew lets me "borrow" some pretty sweet attackers and other effects, there are instant versions of this effect but not on a stick to my knowledge. 1 or 2 activations often opens someone up to attacks too.

Amazing deck! I did not realise there was someone before me with this idea, and I love how your deck is looking. Cards to consider for your Maybeboard: Acorn Catapult, Death by Dragons, Elephant Resurgence, Kamahl's Summons, Plague of Vermin, Tempt with Vengeance, Artifact Mutation, Dowsing Dagger Flip, Curse of Disturbance, Liege of the Hollows, Sawtusk Demolisher, Akroan Horse, Hungry Lynx, Life of the Party, Sleeper Agent, Tahngarth, First Mate and lets not forget the "Hunted" cycle with Hunted Horror, Hunted Dragon and Hunted Troll

I've not seen him played but I wouldn't build him with the expectation of being able to flip him consistently. You'll need to lose exactly 27 life and have that 6 mana available before one of your opponents knocks you out of the game. 13 damage is such an easy thing to do really. Even if they don't knock you out of the game they only have to push you off 13 life before your end step. That said there are some options for you that could really make the deck tick and allow you to get to that life total quickly.
Unspeakable Symbol, Soul Channeling, Phyrexian Processor, Infernal Contract, Plague of Vermin, Toxic Deluge, Hatred, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Doom Whisperer, Wall of Blood, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth, Blood Celebrant, Vilis, Broker of Blood, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, and Bolas's Citadel.
Some of these will just set you to 13 life, others will get you close. Things like Hatred I really like here because that could be knocking someone out of the game. Then flipping your commander and going right into drawing a bunch of cards. You'd need 11 mana to do that in 1 turn though so I'd also include black's big mana cards like Nirkana Revenant and Crypt Ghast. A number of these things are mana hungry to do in one turn. All in all I wouldn't say this is looking half bad. Some rather strong cards here at the core of your strategy.

Interesting choice going without , just a preference for Teysa?
The Hunted above are great options.
Plague of Vermin won't force opponents to take tokens but if they don't and you grab say 20, that'll be brutal. Since you gain life it should be a good card for you no matter the outcome.
Acorn Catapult, Warren Weirding, Tombstone Stairwell exist, I guess.
Gallows at Willow Hill seems neat. You'll need to make sure you have a decent number of humans to make it work consistently. With 19 creatures I'd say if ~10 are human strongly consider it.
Genesis Chamber and Infernal Genesis should do good work.

Plague of Vermin both gives you creatures and takes down your life and Royal Assassin seems like good includes for your deck. Id say you got more creatures than you need, and you could put that into enchantments that give you more consistency and flexibility. Say Hibernation's End, or Defense of the Heart, and Wild Pair

Use a number of Rat Colony, and deathtouch rats. Coat of Arms is a killer card as well
Plague of Vermin is a kill card you need. Id recommend checking out my build of this deck. Its not as budget as yours, but I spent 150 on it

metalflame I play this deck on MTGO, so imperial seal is actually not very expensive at all. If I were going to play this in paper I would definitely replace that with something else.
Thrumming Stone actually does work with Bontu's Monument and Aetherflux Reservoir, as play is just an old term for cast.
The reason for 40 Shadowborn Apostle is so that I can consistently hit at least one off of Thrumming Stone when comboing off, fewer than 40 means the deck would be much less consistent. Also, excess copies can be played in the hope of getting up to six to find Rune-Scarred Demon or can be sacrificed to Ayara to draw cards, so it is not too big of a deal to have 40 of them.
Finally, thank you so much for the suggestion of Plague of Vermin, that card seems extremely good and I will definitely be testing it.
