I remember trying to build a deck like this once. I think Dragon Tempest would be a good inclusion in this deck since it works for any creature with flying, not just dragons.

For your sacrifice theme, I recommend Skirsdag High Priest and Priest of Forgotten Gods . Weaponcraft Enthusiast is a good and cheap fodder producer in addition to the ones mentioned by Funkydiscogod.

Hmm... the only clear cuts I would make are

Cordial Vampire --> Skirsdag High Priest

Sheoldred, Whispering One --> Demon of Dark Schemes

Orzhov Charm --> Dictate of Erebos

Black Sun's Zenith --> Massacre Girl

Dross Harvester might be better than Deathgreeter , as well. Sacrificing 3 creatures with Teysa out gains you 6 life with Deathgreeter and 12-4=8 life with Harvester. Though since their cmcs are different and I don't really have a grasp of how fast EDH is it's hard for me to say without testing.

You could maybe play some Morbid cards like Skirsdag High Priest , but that's all I can really say. Most of the card choices here look solid to me. I'll list a few cards that you don't have in the maybeboard: Ajani's Last Stand , Ashes of the Abhorrent , Demon of Dark Schemes , Kaya's Guile , Dictate of Erebos , Dross Harvester , Massacre Girl , Ogre Slumlord .

Of those, I think Skirsdag High Priest , Dross Harvester , and Ogre Slumlord are the best/most fun.

Few things for now,.... Soul Warden doesnt net alot of life, and doeant work with teysas ability. Skirsdag High Priest is a activated ability not a triggered ability, also you have 11 of Deathrender

needs more cleric tribal - I'd ditch the backup Orzhov subtheme ( Basilica Screecher , Crypt Ghast , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , & Tithe Taker ) and probably the Regal Bloodlord for some cleric support: Akroma's Devoted , Battlefield Medic , Battletide Alchemist , and Daru Spiritualist come to mind for that. Edgewalker is a must for the colors, and I'd probably ditch the monuments and obilisk of urd for more clerics - Alms Collector and Bygone Bishop give decent card draw, Eight-and-a-Half-Tails , Giver of Runes and Mother of Runes offer amazing protection for your field. Frontline Medic and Selfless Spirit offer indistrucbablity for your own wipes. Sin Collector offers good andi-countermagic / tide-turner removal. High Priest of Penance is just amazing with the recusion this deck should have. Rotlung Reanimator turns all clerics into double duty sac fodder, and Priest of Forgotten Gods , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist are more than happy to supply that role, with Skirsdag High Priest backing them up. and Weathered Wayfarer pulls the same job as Land Tax , but can fetch non-basics, and is a cleric.

Apollo_Paladin Thank you for the compliment. I gave a look at your deck, and it gave me some ideas, specifically with Unearth . I know what you're thinking with Chromatic Lantern but I really like it as a little bit of an insurance policy to help maintain floating mana. I took your advice with moving Nova Cleric to the sideboard until I find something more cost effective for enchantment removal; so more updates to come. I also removed Dark Supplicant and the Scion of Darkness . It felt like unnecessary/cumbersome when more efficient means of sacrificing exist and adding another Coat of Arms seems like a better use of space.

So far my favorite combo that I have been playing around with involves sacrificing Selfless Spirit for 1-3 zombies tokens (courtesy of Rotlung Reanimator ), then tapping cleric tokens that Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip provided to use Skirsdag High Priest and get 1-4 demon tokens, then using Unearth to put Selfless Spirit back into and ready to sac again for the next turn, and depending on how many Suture Priests are on field gaining 3-12 life for the low low cost of 1 mana, pending what is already on the field of course. Additionally, Coat of Arms really makes this a nasty combo.
