Sifter of Skulls

Creature — Eldrazi

Devoid (This card has no color.)

Whenever another nontoken creature you control dies, put a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token onto the battlefield. It has "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool." ( represents colorless mana.)

A few things that might help, I'm hoping I've understood what you're looking for!

Viscera Seer is among the best sac outlets ever printed at only B, but the most popular altars are all really pushed, Phyrexian Altar, Ashnod's Altar and Altar of Dementia. Ashnod's is probably the best, but Phyrexian is still very good. Skullport Merchant is great on a budget, if you want a recursive body some of the better options are Gravecrawler, which only needs a Zombie and can easily go infinite with a lot of things, and Haakon, Stromgald Scourge who lets you recast any Knights, which also includes Changelings but most importantly lets you loop the same 1 drop Knight. These sorts of cards also like Pitiless Plunderer, Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls, and any colourless sources can benefit from Bog Initiate. Nether Traitor can let you get an extra sacrifice for each Black mana you have to match a dying creature. If you usually have a cheap sacrifice outlet, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can make a ton of bodies for you. Another recursive body that can offer some ongoing value is Silversmote Ghoul, you just want a way to gain a bit of life, so something like your Exquisite Blood or Whip of Erebos can help ensure you gain enough. Ogre Slumlord is a decent source of bodies if you have some ways to kill enemy creatures, the nice thing is that once the Slumlord gains some steam, you're pretty tough to attack on the ground. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs can make bodies that discourage people from swinging at you. Really bad in some ways, but Bloodsoaked Altar can make weenies into beefy demons, plays well with token generators obviously.

If you expect to have medium size creatures die, Mask of Griselbrand can draw a reasonable number of cards, it can also gain you decent life while offering evasion. There are very few downsides to running this card in my experience, even in a deck that doesn't run many creatures your Commander can wear it.

Blade of Selves would be funny if you ever get your Commander melded, when you swing you get a copy of your meld for each opponent (though you only get the ETBs before they die unfortunately).

War Room is a very good land to look at, maybe Bonders' Enclave if you think you can get a big enough body out consistently. Agitator Ant can help ensure you have a big enough body fwiw, the effect can get very out of hand though if you lack wipes.

I feel like stuff like Make an Example or Do or Die can kill a ton of creatures (or people's very important ones), it's pricier but Phyrexian Purge can clear a bunch of stuff out, it's very good with Sangromancer fwiw. Not sure if it's too pricey, but Vona's Hunger can clear a ton of opponent's stuff out for you. I could be wrong, but I think Necromantic Selection is absolutely hilarious with your Commander, you can just choose your Commander and you get a treasure for each creature that died, including your Commander. Rise of the Dread Marn is maybe good enough.

Rite of the Raging Storm should probably be considered, it'll give you a treasure almost guaranteed each of your turns, and hits only opponents on each opponent's turn. It's also budget atm, it might go up. Rite is very good with Mask of Griselbrand, a card that is better than it looks in my experience.

Nettlecyst might be decent? It's bigger than Cranial Plating, but you can't move it at instant speed, maybe still good?

If you can get enough tokens out, Kyren Negotiations can let them ping opponents you can't swing at.

Not sure you need another, but Sifter of Skulls is another Pawn of Ulamog. Both like Bog Initiate in my experience.

If you like reanimation, there is Hell's Caretaker, which can turn a token into any creature in your graveyard. Not sure if other people in your area play graveyard decks, but Callous Bloodmage is a nice solution to such decks that also can be used to generate a card or a Pest.

It's probably as cheap as it'll get, but Grim Hireling is both great with Treasures in general, but also can generate them for you, especially if you have evasive creatures. In reference to Treasure generation, there is also Academy Manufactor, a very good card if you want potential life gain/card draw when you generate treasures.

cool deck!!!
a couple ideas, just thoughts:
Knight-Captain of Eos makes tokens, keeps you alive.
Hero of Bladehold makes tokens,
Grave Titan makes tokens.
Luminarch Ascension is a win con late game if it sticks.
Divine Visitation makes your tokens awesome.
Training Grounds reduces the cost of your commander's ability.
Inkshield can be a big turn around and makes tokens.
Dramatic Finale makes tokens.
Nightmare Shepherd makes tokens
Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls make tokens
cheers, have fun!!!

It seems pretty decent in most token-heavy sacrifice decks. It's a worse Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, and pairs decently with Sifter of Skulls, Ashnod's Altar, Pitiless Plunderer, and the like.

I don't have any specific uses for it because it's outside of the color identities of most of my decks that would want it.

I don't usually use very many (and none in Dimir), but Modal Dual Faced spells with a land on the back (Malakir Rebirth  Flip for example) are really good in decks that want to run a higher land count, as these offer you a so-so spell when you don't need a land, and a land when the spell is unplayable. 40 is a lot of lands, I only have 1 deck with more, and that's a dedicated landfall combo deck, so I'd try to run at least 4 MDFC lands. The good ones tend to be really pricey, but some are affordable.

Resculpt and Ravenform are good ways in Dimir to Exile a creature (which does matter sometimes) or to deal with an artifact permanently (Karn aside). I think both are fairly cheap. I wouldn't hesitate to run Resculpt over Go For The Throat, who cares about a 4/4 in Commander? The 1/1 is even less relevant.

If you want a low budget Zombie that is recursive (and can bring back your Midnight Reaper for example) is Haakon, Stromgald Scourge. Haakon's main asset is that he has to be exiled, and some decks don't come prepared to do that, or don't want to expend the card on such a weenie. Anyways, any Knight that can be cast for colourless (Universal Automaton, but also Ashes of the Fallen or Maskwood Nexus can make other 1 drops into knights) will go infinite with a sac outlet and Pawn of Ulamog or Sifter of Skulls. Not sure if that's enough Zombies, but there are other Zombie knights. You can also tutor for various pieces of this kind of clunky combo with Transmute cards, most of which are cheap.
