MH2 brings us Bone Shards , which is arguably better than Spark Harvest in most cases.

Hi tearrow,you can use Spark Harvest instead of Bone Splinters . What do you think about Bastion of Remembrance ? you have one soldier for sacrifice and an another "blood artist's effect". Another cards that you can use are Perilous Myr , Poison-Tip Archer , Bone Picker , Butcher Ghoul .

Forgot my friend Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , definitely one of my fav's and fits your indestructible/god theme too. Phyrexian Arena is a good 6 power draw.

Last couple topics,

I made an assumption and grouped Draw above Damage, and Deathtouch above Token.

Deathtouch 16%, Control 16%, Damage/Life 15%, Recursion 8%, Token 6%, Draw 6%, Discard 2%, Ramp 2%, Land 29%

Further on Card Advantage (which includes draw):

I know why your doing it and the thought process behind it, but here's an alternative perspective.

Your cards like Blood Divination , Costly Plunder , Pitiless Pontiff , Bone Splinters , Final Payment , Severed Strands , Spark Harvest are usually paired with LTB effect (like your damage/life and afterlife abilities), more along lines of Grave Pact (Also Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Dark Prophecy , Nightmare Shepherd , Etc.) or Reveillark / Academy Rector types.

The issue is Blood Divination why not Necropotence ( Greed ) for CMC1 less, and no sacrifice, let's you refill your hand anytime, Grim Haruspex /Etc. Why Spark Harvest / Bone Splinters over Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile or Mortify or even Bloodchief's Thirst / Generous Gift if your after planeswalkers.

So how are creatures getting into the graveyard, if your not sacrificing them along with other effects, a value engine!! Skullclamp is a necessity, Viscera Seer is strong, Phyrexian Altar (this card is cEDH level though), more things like Priest of Forgotten Gods & Ayara, First of Locthwain . Why sacrifice a deathtouch creature to LTB damage/life when you can Corpse Knight instead and get the value up front? Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Village Rites is ok because its CMC1 and Instant, you don't need tutor in battlecruiser/low (up to power 5), but cards like Diabolic Intent which also feed into things like Mausoleum Secrets are value. Ashnod's Altar , Doom Foretold , Razaketh, the Foulblooded , etc.

Key is value in / value out. Don't waste the value out just to enable your recursion. Value-in, Value-out, then recur. More Immortal Servitude (battlefield), less Soul Salvage (hand). Reanimate / Animate Dead (anyone's graveyards), Unburial Rites , Victimize , Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Revival / Revenge , Command the Dreadhorde , Blood for Bones .

Luminous Broodmoth / Lurrus of the Dream-Den could be some cool interaction with the graveyard.

Topic Interaction:

Kinda touched on it, in previous. Control 16% is quite a bit, inline with power level. If you replace Ashen Rider , Bone Splinters , Final Payment , Severed Strands , Spark Harvest . Some should become the "sac outlets", like Skullclamp / Viscera Seer and some just better interactions (Instant speed whenever possible). Anguished Unmaking , Utter End , Swords to Plowshares , Merciless Eviction , Plaguecrafter / Demon's Disciple (Better Fleshbag Marauder unless your utilizing the Zombie part), Shriekmaw , Path to Exile , Generous Gift , Deadly Rollick , Dire Tactics , Hagra Mauling  Flip, Unmake there's lots.

Burglar Rat : If you like him! Elderfang Disciple , Yarok's Fenlurker , Rotting Rats (with Unearth).

If you want to jump on a teams chat or anything when you have some time happy to help, just discord chat me, hopefully something that helps you focus this deck to a 4-5

Looks like fun! What kinds of groups are you playing against? The landbase is always a good place to start, I'd recommend Path of Ancestry over the guildgate and Bojuka Bog / Scavenger Grounds if anyone in your playgroup interacts with graveyards. There's also plenty of great counterspell options out there, Didn't Say Please is strictly better than cancel here, but there's also SwanSong and Drown in the Loch , both of which are pretty powerful in Commander. Removal is also important to consider, there's a bunch of great kill spells that are better than Murder , but they'll depend on your playgroup. Go for the Throat , Price of Fame , Doom Blade , Spark Harvest , Heartless Act , selected based on what kinds of decks you play against. If you're going full zombie-ball, I'd recommend Coat of Arms as a duplicate Door of Destinies . If budget isn't an issue, there's Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , which is a great group-buff and recursion engine, and Patriarch's Bidding , which can give you a huge army really quick, so long as you don't have any other tribal players at the table, but if you keep their graveyards cleaned out it shouldn't be an issue.

Here are some ideas you might like:

Vexing Devil is all upside in your deck.

Then, maybe think of other cards that bring back creatures from the grave like Unearth. I don't like undying evil because you only have a tiny window to cast it. Cauldron Haze could be interesting also.

Then, you might want some creature that can bring back themselves from the grave, like Gravecrawler. You'll find a lot more on Gatherer.

Then, you might want a sac outlet like Viscera Seer in case your opponents don't kill enough of your stuff or exile them.

Village Rites is card advantage.

Finally, Spark Harvest over Bone Splinters all day every day.

Happy Brewing!

Spark Harvest makes a bit more sense than Bone Splinters, as does Village Rites instead of Costly Plunder you don't have any artifacts anyways. Or am I missing something?

Hagra Mauling  Flip in the cave slot? especially as Feed the Swarm now slots nicely in the erase slot. i also really like Yarok's Fenlurker and feel its possibly the best 2 drop off of a turn 1 druress id try and find a way to run 4. speaking off, id probably go 4 duress

Spark Harvest is a option for pw removal possibly better than your current option

Demonic Embrace could also work as a 2 off stick it on a Fenlurker or chupacabra after getting value for etb. also the fact you can ditch a land to have big flyer after a board wipe is pretty nice

if Spawn of Mayhem keeps droping it may be worth adding, maybe with soul flayer (sac theme with soul flayer, dire moon, kitesale, spawn and aether born could do some scary stuff)

Spark Harvest is a strict upgrade on your removal spell
