Another Mardu deck? How many aggro Mardu decks do you need?

1st, What's the purpose of Approach of the Second Sun? Zurgo is an aggresive 7/2, who is looking to close the game in a couple quick swings. This is anti-synergy. You should replace it w/ ramp to get your cmdr out faster.

2nd, replace Ancient Craving with Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper It's one less card, but half the mana. This allows you to be more impactful in your early turns if you would rather draw instead of tutor.

3rd, I've played Phyrexian Rebirth in Sharuum, it's not that good at all. Replace it with Tragic Arrogance or Single Combat.

Finally, this deck really doesn't play to Zurgo's strengths' at all. Zurgo is an aggressive commander that has to attack. You should be finding ways to keep him alive, and push combat through trample effects, deathtouch, flying etc. Zurgo wants to be suited up w/ armor from either equips or enchantments that allow him to kill in 2/3 hit, and get extra combat steps to kill your opponent quickly.

Dang! I know it's close to 2 dollars, but Mirror Entity really would fit your bill! You can either pump your entire team, or stack his ability for 0 as many times as you want to make a lot of "sac"!

Single Combat might also fit your bill!

I like this. I just build a rough version of Drizzt Do'Urden, and it seems to have a somewhat similar strategy: I mainly focus on equipment, but also added some +1/+1 counter shenanigans. A card I really like in there is Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist. It's just so easy to put everything on Kalemne with him. Two great wipes in Voltron are Single Combat and Divine Reckoning. Another cool voltron card I play in my Moraug, Fury of Akoum is Boots of Speed. It's an easy and cheap way to have your voltron online again. One final thing: Maybe try Odric, Lunarch Marshal. Even if Kalemne somehow becomes unable to attack, Odric can use her presence to give your remaining board Double Strike and Vigilance out of nowhere.

Indeed there is stuff I might use myself if I do this myself, I still hesitate betwen her and Oloro for my esper deck,

right now I build a sultai reanimator mill plus a jeskai artifact polymorphism.

As question I would say is your 2 enchant plus cyclonic rift enought to deal with masses ? I would add a Supreme Verdict , Single Combat or a Merciless Eviction as boardwipe. Also Inkshield might be deadly in your deck, if you fight aggressive deck, as you will get 2+1/1 creatures with flying after an opponent might had landed on you a lethal strike, would even more insane if Cathars' Crusade is on (then again i know that putting this on table might make you the major threat)

It's a bit of a gamble if there's a lot of gravepower in your pod, but you could try out Open the Vaults . Single Combat is another boardwipe in the same vein as Slash the Ranks.

I noticed you already have some stuff involving protection and monarch triggers, so I figure I'll recommend Protector of the Crown and Inviolability too. Yes, the combo does what you think.

Some budget suggestions:

Phyrexian Arena is apparently expensive, and also not that necessary. Pitiless Plunderer fills the role of producing colored mana for sacrificing creatures as long as you have a free sacrifice outlet.

Butcher of Malakir is a cheaper alternative to Dictate of Erebos and could be preferred because it is a creature that you can reanimate from the graveyard.

Wrath of God is Damnation , but much cheaper.

Kindred Dominance is maybe the best board wipe for tribal decks, even though it has a high mana cost. But you might not care about saving all of your vampires, just Elenda. Tragic Arrogance , Cataclysm , or Single Combat might fill that role for you.

Omniscience_is_life- Thanks for the input. I've decided to try a lot of the changes you mentioned. I have added Charging Tuskodon , Fiendish Duo , Halvar, God of Battle  Flip, Reyav, Master Smith , Mind Stone , and Teferi's Protection .

I decided to drop Godsend , Toolcraft Exemplar , Tajic, Blade of the Legion , Worn Powerstone , Commander's Sphere , Ajani, Strength of the Pride , and finally Talisman of Conviction .

I have added some cards to my maybeboard that I may try to add in at some point.

My deck's boardwipes already have Austere Command , Blasphemous Act , Divine Reckoning , Single Combat and my personal favorite Tragic Arrogance .

Thanks again for your wonderful suggestions!

I like the lifegain/lifedrain aspects of this deck. But I think you are missing an important extort card in Crypt Ghast

With the up and down changes to your life total you may want to look at cards like Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Reverse the Sands, and Axis of Mortality

Mass removal and reanimation seems like a good sub theme, but where are your big heavy hitters to reanimate? Sepulchral Primordial seems like an auto include in this style of deck. Due to your creatures being more value engines than big hitters Single Combat might not be the wrath you want.
