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.

so, after rigorous playtesting, I have come up with some cards to cut and add that will hopefully msk the deck better:

cuttables

  • Alabaster Kirin This does absolutely nothing, has no prison effects, and is kinda useless here

  • Baird, Steward of Argive His prison effect is okay, but you can definitely slot in better options for not too much more money

  • Knight of Sursi Once again, just a vanilla card that doesn't do anything except get a small body on the battlefield, which isnt very good in commander, even if it is indestructible

  • Misthoof Kirin Only really okay in a morph deck, this is kinda useless here

  • Oreskos Explorer just a worse Land Tax

  • Segovian Angel a 1/1 with vigilance has to swing 120 times to win. just a terrible card all around.

  • Silver Knight Kinda bad, doesn't really do much .

  • Shepherd of the Lost this would be good if it have every other creature it's abilities, but alas, it's kinda terrible, especially because I'm smelling a voltron sub-theme around Avacyn

  • White Knight Unless your in a very black heavy meta, this is just bad, and is barley passable even if you have said meta

  • Journey to Nowhere a worse Pacifism

  • All your lands except basic plains. You need more utility lands, not just non-basics that do nothing

  • Wing Shards This one is debatable, although I don't see you casting a bunch of spells and having the mana to cast this, due to the lack of ramp you have.

  • Armillary Sphere bad ramp

  • Traveler's Amulet bad ramp

  • Orazca Relic have fun waiting 5 turns to get blessing and then only drawing one card

  • Take Vengeance crappy removal

  • Bishop of Wings I don't see this deck supporting an angel tribal

Potential Add-Ins

Thanks so much for reading my list, and I hope this has been some help to you. My main problem with this deck was it ran too much inefficient removal and bad creatures, but once these are added in, I think the deck should be a lot for mean. Have a great day! =)

I thought it was initially a budget build and you wanted any upgrade. Got you. So with budget ideas in mind....

  1. Eternal Witness - Recursion
  2. Reclamation Sage - Removal
  3. Beast Within - Permanent Removal
  4. Return of the Wildspeaker - Draw
  5. Decimate - 4x for 1 Removal, very powerful
  6. Escape to the Wilds - Can be nice, 5 mana is a lot but it reads until the end of your next turn which is useful. Extra land drop can't hurt.
  7. Ramunap Excavator - To replay lands from the grave
  8. Thaumatic Compass  Flip/Journey's Kite - Extra land drops
  9. Blighted Woodland - Ramp
  10. Reliquary Tower - To hold onto extra cards
  11. Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar - Allows you to return lands back, I'm sure there are other cards such as Mina and Den who can do the same. This is budget and can be a beater. Reach is nice.
  12. Realms Uncharted - Basically reads get 2 lands
  13. Harmonize - Stable draw

It sucks to be budget since you lose out on so many good cards, most importantly crucible and life from the loam.

Also Thaumatic Compass  Flip is just a better version of the Joirneyer’s kite you have in the deck.

You’ll probably want Odric, Lunarch Marshal in the deck if you are attempting to swing wide with all of your creatures.

Another good card would be True Conviction to try and help you close out the game.

33 lands in my opinion is too low even with a deck that is mostly made up of low drop creatures. Maybe bump it up to 35 or 36 just to be safe. Windbrisk Heights seems like it would be a good land for what you are trying to do in the deck.

A new enchantment that I’ve found to be pretty fun in my Marchesa pillowfort/token deck is Outlaws' Merriment for the variation of tokens it can make.

Last card I think I can suggest is Iroas, God of Victory to make your creatures stick around in combat some more. Another is Thaumatic Compass  Flip which is a little bit of a pet card of mine for my Boros decks to get lands and it flips into a nice utility land.

Here is my Aurellia deck. It is more angel tribal with voltron mixed in, but maybe it can give you some ideas. Aurelia's Angelic crusade

Joe_Ken_ on Pet cards/combos you'd like to ...

One of my pet cards that I think needs to see more play is Thaumatic Compass  Flip in decks that don’t ramp all too well mostly red, white, and blue it can help ensure land drops while also turning into a good utility land in the mid-late game.

I really like this thematic and I think you did a cool job building around it! :)

My first advice is that Estrid neither synergizes with your deck mechanically or, to my knowledge, thematically. Consider swapping her around and making Chulane your leader, since your deck seems to have more focus on ETB and card draw/land drops. Alternatively, Roon of the Hidden Realm seems like he would fit thematically and enhance your ETB effects.

Some more cards that seem like they'd fit your thematic and be useful: Timestream Navigator , Path of Discovery , Curious Obsession , Perilous Voyage , Chart a Course , Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Treasure Map  Flip, Ongoing Investigation , Trail of Evidence , Map the Wastes

Some win con ideas: Avenger of Zendikar flickers well and works great with all your landfall triggers, White Sun's Zenith , Blue Sun's Zenith , or Entreat the Angels all give you places to dump your mana, Rite of Replication can be used to similar effect on one of your bigger guys or to get more ETB, Laboratory Maniac or the WotS Jace could let you try to win by decking yourself out with all your draw/land digging. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper and the various awaken cards from Zendikar could also work if you want to make your excess lands into beaters. Vigor would also be a strong win-con for your deck.

Hope this helps!
