Creature — Human Shaman
When Plaguecrafter enters the battlefield, each player sacrifices a creature or planeswalker. Each player who can't discards a card.

Fleshbags, my friend. You need Fleshbags.
Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Demon's Disciple, Plaguecrafter, Gravelighter & Phyrexian Delver. Sac them to their own Ability to control the board and pumping Experience Counters at the same time. Lifeline & Grimoire of the Dead could also be great, if you decide to go that route.

Hi there, thank you for reaching out. I hope my suggestions will be helpful, but here are some things I noticed when I took a look at your deck:
I know that your commander can steal opponents' lands, but I think you are kind of low on your own land count. Personally, I would suggest bumping up to 35-36, especially since your average cmc is closer to 3.
You can probably swap out Fall of Gil-galad and Oath of the Grey Host for a couple more effects that let you sacrifice your own creatures like Ashnod's Altar, Plumb the Forbidden, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, or Phyrexian Altar, depending on your budget.
Depending on your budget, you can likely swap Butcher of Malakir out for Bastion of Remembrance, Poison-Tip Archer, Grave Pact, or Dictate of Erebos. The enchantments are a bit more resistant to removal and board wipes than creatures, and all options are lower on your mana curve to come down sooner.
If you haven't already, I would recommend checking out EDHREC's page on Smeagol, Helpful Guide, here are the pages for a Sacrifice themed deck and a more Landfall focused deck. These pages can give you an idea of which effects overlap between the two strats, and what might be within your budget.
I hope these suggestions were helpful.

Have you considered Plaguecrafter here? It could do a lot of heavy lifting here! I also think that the combos orbiting Saffi Eriksdotter would be perfect for this one, being both powerful and flavorful.
I'm sure you're clever enough to see the combo on your own, but I'll explain for good measure:
Step 3. Return Karmic Guide to the Battlefield
Step 4. Return Saffi Eriksdotter to the Battlefield & loop.
Worth considering, given the deck synergy imo.

Edicts! Mass Edicts! Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, Demon's Disciple, Plaguecrafter & Gravelighter are all nuts in this build. I wouldn't recommend ones that cost more than 3, though. Soul Shatter, Vona's Hunger, Liliana's Triumph & Sheoldred's Edict do the same thing at Instant speed, with the tradeoff being less Counters on Kresh the Bloodbraided, as those are not Creature Spells.
I'd also recommend literally as many Dorks as possible, as they also pump Kresh when they die, they're utility at both the floor and the ceiling of your deck is undeniable.
Pestilence & Pyrohemia are also worth it for this Commander for the same reason mass Edicts are worth it: controlling the board and pumping your Commander at the same time is just a great thing to do.

Land base -
3x Forest, 1x Swamp > 4x Verdant Catacombs
Other cards -
I feel like Outland Liberator is better than Cankerbloom generally but I also think that the newly added Liberators should be in the sideboard though I don't immediately have a replacement suggestion. MV of 2 is good. Power of 3 is good. Maybe Grim Haruspex for the card advantage
Great card. Keep 4. But you may want to sneak into the deck a way to ensure more consistently dealing player damage
no notes. I'm unsure about this card but it has a bit of a unique ability so maybe it's ok.
Gorger feels underpowered to me. Voidwalker is shadow so more consistent damage (though a tradeoff with no blocking). But much more so - all the discarding and sacrificing? Now you can cast those things
