seshiro_of_the_orochi, I agree that sacrifice outlets that cost no mana are the best, but some of those, such as Carrion Feeder, simply have too minor of an effect. What about sacrifice outlets that cost only 1 mana?

Also, the ability of Smothering Abomination is mandatory, not optional, so that could hurt me, if I am not careful.

TypicalTimmy, I definitely am fond of Angrath, but I am removing him so that I can switch Caged Sun with The Immortal Sun, which may seem to be an unusual choice, but I am very fond of that card and have it in nearly every EDH deck of mine. Do not worry, I am keeping Angrath in my red/black/blue EDH deck, because that deck also contains Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, who is too awesome to remove from that deck.

That decision makes sense.

I'd say the sac outlets not costing any mana usually are the best ones. There are some I'd like to suggest in addition to your list (I didn't double check your decks, so I don't know if you play any of them.):

Carrion Feeder

Spawning Pit

Relic Vial

Another card that goes well into decks that want to sacrifice is Smothering Abomination.

love it when Ayara gets some love not big on token creation? I think Oathsworn Vampire and Smothering Abomination could fit in here just fine.

Thanks for the suggestions! I opted to cut Smothering Abomination instead of Undead Augur or Village Rites. I like Rites as it is burst card draw which I don't have a lot of right now. I have a ton of steady card draw (death draw basically) but not a lot of burst draw. I think I'll probably swap Rites out for Read the Bones eventually. While I agree on the "may" issue with Undead Augur, it is a creature so I can always sacrifice it if I am afraid of decking myself (which I've accidentally done with Dark Prophecy in the past). Plus it has zombie synergy. Smothering Abomination got the axe because it is basically another version of my commander that I can't control as well.

1 more cut...always the hardest one to remove.

Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire and Lurrus of the Dream-Den both seem great additions. Ashnod's Altar is great for aristrocrat decks. Oh, and Smothering Abomination, Species Specialist and Grim Haruspex are powerful card draw options.

I'd go up to 4 Village Rites .

Card suggestions: Mortician Beetle , Pawn of Ulamog , Smothering Abomination , new card Bone Shards. (tappedout doesn't have bone shards but u can google it, it's basically bone splinters but lets you discard a card or sac a creature, and kills planeswalkers too)

Daemogoth Titan reminds me of this 9/9 elemental from shadowmoor or one of those sets thats B/G hybrid mana and makes you sacrifice a creature whenever it attacks but I forgot what it is. Nevermind it's Doomgape which is kinda bad so scratch that. For some reason my memory thought it was 4-5 cmc.
