Mortlocke Yea i didn't see that when you first suggested the card. Mind changed.

so a combo i found out playing mtgo Bolas's Citadel also works well with Razaketh, the Foulblooded on the field. I should have thought about it but it came up in play and Lightbulb went off. Play Shadowborns, and if i hit a land sac to shuffle.

Then after they are on the field sac them to get Crypt Incursion, and Songs of the Damned life gained back.

Maybe even add Ad Nauseam back to the deck?

Dark Ritual, Sinkhole, Snuff Out, Bojuka Bog, and Songs of the Damned immediately strike me as more powerful or game-warping.

Pestilence is a strong engine, which hates on creature-based strategies, while that is okay, it is so slow and useless against non-creature-based decks that only Pauper lets it see play, with obviously some players running any card in commander.

Modern and Legacy have used singleton, tutorable copies of Bojuka Bog in many lists, Snuff Out is better in Legacy and Commander, Sinkhole is better and more Iconic, while Dark Ritual is much, much better, sees consistent Pauper, Legacy, and Vintage play in Ad Nauseam, Doomsday, and a plurality of other storm/combo decks, and is one of the most famous cards to date.

While yes, it doesn't last long, nor does Black Lotus, or Ancestral Recall, but that doesn't make Gilded Lotus or Arcanis the Omnipotent any better as cards. They are much, much worse in the vast majority of circumstances.

If you want a powerful janky pauper black engine, Songs of the Damned is another card that you may like, being a card used in the mono-black cycling storm decks going around.

I guess to stay true to your Plan with Anje as your Commander big rituals might help you get there. Bubbling Muck, Mana Geyser, Irencrag Feat, Geosurge, Songs of the Damned with a big ol' gy, Sacrifice, Burnt Offering, Culling the Weak,...those can give you big bursts of mana. However this seriously narrows down your gameplay with Anje to just getting out an eldrazi. If you do choose to focus on casting the Slithergang, I would recommend the previously mentioned Rakdos, Lord of Riots in that colorcombi.

Good move. I'd be interested to see Songs of the Damned in action.

Now if you could only somehow give Rat Colony the dredge ability you'd be golden.

Thanks for the help. I cut a Rat Colony and Library of Leng for Ashnod's Altar and Songs of the Damned. That should help make the deck pretty explosive.

Good point. It would help to have as much mana as possible on a particular turn.

Currently I'm running only 3 mana rocks, plus Mana Geyser, Blood Vassal and Thermopod.

I think I'll cut Library of Leng for more mana. Should I go for another mana rock (Mind Stone maybe? There are tons to choose from) or more temporary bursts of mana, like Generator Servant, Culling the Weak, Songs of the Damned or Ashnod's Altar?

Hey, nice budget version of Yawgmoth.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel + Phyrexian Reclamation to keep recurring Gray can be another budget win condition. Yawgmoth can be an enabler for Gray + Reclamation because he can keep sacing Gray. Gray is a very good budget card for mono black in multiplayer Commander where you'll have many opponents. Reclamation's repeatable recursion can be helpful with the strategy of sacing creatures and can recur at instant speed. Gray and Reclamation could replace Cordial Vampire and Palace Siege.

Skirsdag High Priest is an underrated budget card in multiplayer Commander. Repeatable morbid can give you a lot of value, good with token strategies. Tap 1/1 tokens to make 5/5 flying beaters. Yawgmoth can be an enabler to activate morbid at instant speed. The nice thing about morbid in multiplayer Commander is it can be activated when any creature dies which includes an opponents creature on any turn. Priest could replace Manakin.

Dark Ritual is a staple card for black. Plaguecrafter is excellent in multiplayer Commander. With 30x Swamps Mutilate has great scalability. Victimize is powerful budget reanimation. These cards could replace Vona's Hunger, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Songs of the Damned, Never/Return.

Everflowing Chalice and Prismatic Lens could replace Corrupted Grafstone and Manalith. You don't need all mana rocks to make black mana since you have 30x Swamps. Black mana shouldn't be a problem, mana rocks just need to make mana for ramp and that mana is fine as colorless. Chalice can be proliferated which is a big bonus.

Good luck with your deck.
