Priest of Forgotten Gods Discussion

Might I suggest for possible board wipes: Dregs of Sorrow, Evincar's Justice good to remove token and machine gun opponents, Last Laugh could be interesting if you include Sanguine Bond, Massacre Girl
Conspiracy (if we can find one cheap enough) would be good with a couple of cards you already have.
Priest of Forgotten Gods could definitely work for some more card draw and disruption. TCG says it's a $1
Grim Harvest is a pretty cool recursion tool - especially with Priest.

Have you considered Culling the Weak, Infernal Plunge, Burnt Offering, Phyrexian Tower and/or Priest of Forgotten Gods? Mana producers that also play the sac theme. You're already running Phyrexian Altar, these would be an extension of that.

I would recommend an aristocratic build. You may choose to go spore counter route, which I'm not a huge fan of, but the following ones pull double duty (and I am a fan of):
On-theme Sac outlets that also make saprolings:
Deathspore Thallid: Great sac outlet and potential removal piece.
Savage Thallid: Another great sac outlet and protection piece.
Vitaspore Thallid: I think giving haste is the weakest effect of the bunch, this is just another budget on-theme sac outlet.
Budget sac payoffs,
Epicure of Blood and Marauding Blight-Priest: Help to increase the payoff of slimefoot and are so cheap they are essentially free (literally, ask anyone at your LGS for these, they have them and don't want them).
Falkenrath Noble: Who doesn't love life loss?
Poison-Tip Archer: Great blocker (reach and deathtouch? No one wants to lose there dragon to this) but this one starts to impact the budget.
Syr Konrad, the Grim: He just does soo much.
Vindictive Vampire: This guy should say life loss.... I mean, it's black and not red.
Zulaport Cutthroat: Classic but approaches a dollar.
Slime Foot god stuff,
Jade Mage: Back up slimefoot that does stuff at a discount.
Massacre Girl: Best board wipe in this build.
Verdant Force: It says EACH upkeep. Yes, each.
Gift of Doom: Cheap protection for slimefoot that has the added benefit of killing a saproling you already want dead.
Moldervine Reclamation: Card draw and life for just playing? Of course.
Snake Umbra: Protection and three cards every time you sac a saproling.
Sprout Swarm: Convoke makes this broken.
Some less budget friendly cards (all under $10, but above $1):
Ohran Frostfang: Turns each saproling into a card draw or a removal spell.
Pitiless Plunderer: Solid ramp.
Priest of Forgotten Gods: Under appreciated. This card does everything a black mage should be doing.
Tendershoot Dryad: Can win you the game on its own.
Black Market: Slime foot loves stupid amounts of mana.
Keen Sense: Insane card draw for 1 green mana.
Casualties of War: Expensive to cast but worth it. Worth it every time.
Best of luck building.

Here are my suggestions:
Sacrifice Outlets: Your deck is low on free sacrifice outlets. Carrion Feeder gets big fast, Viscera Seer is card advantage/selection, and Altar of Dementia is a great budget card, and can even be played in higher power games. I will go into deeper analysis below for Priest of Forgotten Gods.
Card Draw/Advantage/Selection: Another thing your deck needs is MORE card advantage. Get ready for a LONG list. Viscera Seer was mentioned above, Midnight Reaper and Dark Prophecy will draw you a heap of cards, and so will Grim Haruspex. Woe Strider is another Viscera Seer with a body. Priest of Forgotten Gods is a sac outlet, card draw, life drain and ramp in ONE CARD!
Dead Triggers: Last section! Just extra things that trigger when others die. Pawn of Ulamog should be an auto-include in all aristocrats decks. Syr Konrad, the Grim and Vindictive Vampire are all draining cards, and Ayara, First of Locthwain is drain, draw and sac.
I'll let you decide what you want to take out.
+3 from me. (Well, I'm told I can't do three, so 1 will have to do.)
(That took a long time to write, I hope you enjoy it! These were all budget cards, otherwise )

They are still making cards like this in modern sets... Priest of Forgotten Gods

Looking at some party cards, the problem I'm coming across is lack of synergy but I'll recommend some anyway. You really want your commander out early with as many ETBs as you have and being how aggressive he is.
Grenzo, Dungeon Warden: Rogue. Gives you a decent body with repeatable card advantage.
Grenzo, Havoc Raiser: Rogue. Either card advantage or point the biggest (or weakest utility) creature at another player.
Rankle, Master of Pranks: Another rogue. Less synergistic but he has three modes and haste. Plus, you can choose as many modes as you like.
Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion: Warrior. Red ramp and card fixing.
Priest of Forgotten Gods: Cleric. Potential card advantage and removal plus ramp.
Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs: Warrior. Provides plenty of deathtouch chump blockers with your commander.
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed: Cleric. Allows all of your creatures to die once and come back. Plus, kills any human that gets through.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury: Rouge. Neat. Not the greatest in a vacuum but replaces himself, normally with something good.
Anarchist: Wizard. If you get more spells then maybe.
Cinder Seer: Wizard. Not the best pinger but a pinger nonetheless.
Coffin Queen: Wizard. Playable effect.
Dismissive Pyromancer: Wizard. Decent rummage affect and can take one guy out.
Embermage Goblin: Wizard. Not the best pinger but possibly playable. Hits any target.
Fervent Paincaster: Wizard. Hits creatures.
Fireslinger: Wizard. Best pinger so far at 2 cmc. Hits any target.
Nezumi Graverobber: Rogue/Wizard. Starts off as a graveyard hating rogue and turns into a grave stealing wizard.
Going through cards and the party subtheme seems a bit sad. Some of the above are decent but there isn't a ton to go on in my opinion.
On the first strke though, there are a million cheap red spells that grant first strike temporarily as an instant or as an enchantment. I would recommend running 1 or 2 of the instants to keep opponents on their toes when they think about blocking you.
As for creatures,
Soul of Shandalar: Mana wise, not the best. But can ping and has built in first strike.
Sparring Collar: Cheap first strike and can be attached instant speed to either dissuade blocks/attacks or murder something.
Sword of Vengeance: I don't think its as good as above due to not being able to move at instant speed, but it grants vigilance as well. It is nice to keep a first strike flying blocker up after it attacks.
Akki Coalflinger: Way to help out the team.
Legion Loyalist: Way to help out the team. (My favorite of the team helping bunch).
Bloodmark Mentor: Way to help out half of the team.
Akroma's Memorial. Expensive but a classic.
I think a couple or few first strike options would work out. As for cards that I think you could do better than,
Endbringer: Potentially a great card but I wouldn't count on using his other effects with as little colorless mana sources that you have.
Master of Cruelties: Can be good but typically best if saved for kalia combos. He shuts down attacking with everyone else which limits you to dealing with one opponent at a time.
Rakdos Firewheeler: Not bad but repeatable effects may be better.

Hey, nice budget version of Teysa.
Some budget card upgrades to consider:
Open the Armory > Night's Whisper
Armory can get Skullclamp. If it's not getting Clamp than Deathmantle or Greaves or Animate or Dance.
Leonin Relic-Warder > Serrated Scorpion
Warder makes a dies loop with Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead or Necromancy and since you have all these enchantments then it fits right in. If you would like me to explain the interaction I will.
- Priest of Forgotten Gods > Flesh Carver
- Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim > Cartel Aristocrat
- Tithe Taker > Hunted Witness
- Victimize > Unearth
- Generous Gift > Mortify
Good luck with your deck.
