Postmortem Lunge Discussion

I'm sure there are a lot of Stompy decks that don't mind using it. I primarily deal with jank, so the only specific deck idea I can think of is a BR aggro/reanimator deck that uses Claim and Postmortem Lunge (and maybe that new card, Revenge/Revival) to bring it back. Maybe play some Prized Amalgam , too, and if you wanted to make it really competitive you'd play Death's Shadow s and Mutagenic Growth s.
You can still keep it in here, though. It's good, just worse than Swiftspear or Lava Spike.

If you need more self-damage effects, you could consider playing some of the other phyrexian mana cost cards, like Gut Shot and Mutagenic Growth (that one would be more useful in a Stompy deck tho). You can also point gut shot at yourself to lose 3 for free. There's also Postmortem Lunge and Apostle's Blessing .
Are you dead-set on playing a midrange shadow deck? The inherent nature of midrange kinda makes it hard to keep it under budget since you need to play 'good' cards that are often really expensive. You could go for a more Stompy approach in BGr with Swiftspears and Mutagenics or a burn/aggro BRu deck with Vexing Devils and Claim/Fame, which might be easier to build on a smaller budget.

May I recommend using Postmortem Lunge ? It can get back removed Skirk Prospector and Mogg War Marshal as well as any other sideboard creatures like Goblin Cratermaker or Reclamation Sage if you milled them with Commune with the Gods .

Props for not going easy mode with Edgar Markov .
As for suggestions, the best thing I think you could do to improve this deck is to make it more explosive. The way to do that would be to add free sacrifice outlets, along with creatures that provide you multiple bodies.
For sac outlets, Viscera Seer , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodthrone Vampire , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Cartel Aristocrat , Blood Bairn , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , Vampire Aristocrat , and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are good vampire options. Sadistic Hypnotist , Dimir House Guard , Spawning Pit , Hidden Stockpile , Mind Slash are also good. What's important is that you can go off all at once. You want to sac a bunch of creatures to grow Elenda and sac her the same turn.
The other challenge you'll want to keep in mind is that Elenda, the Dusk Rose must go to your graveyard to get the trigger. That means If you want to recast her, you'll have to reanimate her or exile her from your graveyard. Bojuka Bog , Relic of Progenitus , Angel of Finality , God-Pharaoh's Gift (and Gate to the Afterlife !), Skeletal Scrying , Rescue from the Underworld , Necromancer's Covenant , Cremate , Seance , Planar Void , Goryo's Vengeance , Postmortem Lunge , Purgatory . Despoiler of Souls , Mistmoon Griffin , Purify the Grave , Offalsnout , Coffin Purge , Drudge Spell , Cryptwailing , Treacherous Vampire , and Consecrate / Consume , Angelic Renewal , Karmic Guide , Reveillark (the prior two being an infinite loop combo), Dread Return , Nim Deathmantle (there are combos with it and Ashnod's Altar , which you also want), Palace Siege , Bloodline Necromancer , Profane Command , Unburial Rites , Faith's Reward , Ever After , Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Hell's Caretaker . Apprentice Necromancer , Wake the Dead , Second Sunrise , Infernal Offering , Corpse Dance , Zombify , Resurrection , No Rest for the Wicked , and Footsteps of the Goryo , are all good options.
The final piece of the puzzle is making your sacrifices devastating. Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Grave Pact , Black Market , Harvester of Souls , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex , Zulaport Cutthroat , Open the Graves , Blade of the Bloodchief , Ogre Slumlord , Athreos, God of Passage , and Dark Prophecy will help with that.

Oh, one last thing: If you do decide to go with my suggestions for the combo finish, you'll probably want a few more instants and sorceries to abuse with the creatures I mentioned, since all but Possessed Skaab are restricted to instants and sorceries. I understand the deck is more creature-centric, so I would suggest temporary reanimation spells that you can cheat the downside with Aminatou's -1. Corpse Dance would be amazing, and Postmortem Lunge and Footsteps of the Goryo are pretty good. Also, Whip of Erebos works. Due to the way replacement effects work, since you're exiling the creature, the "anywhere else" clause on Whip is ignored, and you still get the creature back.
Oh, also, check out EDHREC for more suggestions. It's the best deckbuilding site for the format. Hope all this helps and happy deck-tuning!
