Promise of Bunrei Discussion

While a lot of cards go infinite with Ashnod's Altar, I think having Midnight Guard with an attached Presence of Gond can actually be used without Altar as a combat win, and as an alternate target for removal. Cast Presence on Guard when you've ready to combo off with Tayam, and suddenly the table is more threatened by the potentially infinite Elves you've created on the previous player's end step.

Vesperlark is a cheap uncommon out of Modern Horizons that I'm sure most EDH players can find at their local store's bulk bin, and allows you to effectively grab 2 creatures to trigger that Corpse Knight instead of one.

Devoted Druid should be moved to the main, and you should totally add Centaur Garden and Hashep Oasis, too. Cast Druid, and if it survives one round, you've got infinite instant speed mill with Tayam. Getting Corpse Knight, Promise of Bunrei, and a Carrion Feeder has never been easier.

Repeatable noncreature token makers: Satyr's Cunning Dawn of Hope Oketra's Monument Goblin Assault

They're all slower than the comparable cards you already got, but they do have the upside of being able to survive your average wrath effect

Also Promise of Bunrei

Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Promise of Bunrei (1 death trigger) go infinite with an Altar and Tayam. Caller of the Claw (2 death triggers) and Hallowed Spiritkeeper (2 other creatures in grave) will require more setup.

My list is similar to yours, tayam-is-on-my-side. Still trying to figure it out.

Have a Similar Demon worship/human sacrifice with some extra synergies. Basically, it generates small tokens to feed the demons, but also generates huge flyers. Starting with 2x Ravenous Demon  Flip and 3x Demon of Catastrophes, cheap and lethal, just because you can get short of tokens. 2 copies of Rite of Belzenlok, wich generates creatures to sacrifice and at the third turn since you cast cast it, generates a huge flying 6/6 Demon token with trample. My main token generator creatures are 4 copies of Doomed Traveler and 2 copies of Thraben Doomsayer. I use 2x Skirsdag Flayer as a crature removal wich at the same time triggers Skirsdag High Priest ability (4 copies). Which is great. Tokens generators spells:3x Lingering Souls, 4x Gather the Townsfolk, 2xPromise of Bunrei, 1x Increasing Devotion.Some more synergies: 2 copies of Teysa Karlov, witch doubles tokens when Doomed Traveler dies, also giving vigilance and lifelink to ALL you tokens, including the demons generated from Rite of Belzenlok and Skirsdag High Priest, which is pretty solid. The rest of the Deck includes removals: 2x Bone Splinters, 4x Mortify. 2x Altar's Reap also feed the Sacrifice/Trigger mechanism giving extra cards. 2x Westvale Abbey  Flip for flavour and, of course, a 9/9 flying, lifelink, Indestructible hasted finisher!

Thoughts on Promise of Bunrei ?

Spairut, Lingering Souls creates 4 tokens for 5 mana. Promise of Bunrei does the same job for 3. Fatal Push is very limited in what it can kill. Tragic Slip can kill Ulamog and most other indestructible nasties.
