Eternal Witness one of the best ETB.

Vengevine green Squee.

Tortured Existence Survival #2

There are more efficient sac outlets than Eater of Hope

Quagmire Druid neat sac outlet.

You need a few spells that interact with Warped Devotion. Recoil was past tech.

Hey, fellow Syrix fan, nice to meet you :D

This looks fine as is. My own Syrix is kind of a discard/sacrifice hybrid, but still, Tortured Existence is a great way to trigger Sy every single turn to maximize his damage output. What's more, Glint-Horn Buccaneer is a great source of damage for the deck.

I wish you tons of fun with the deck!

Maybe Tortured Existence together with Skeleton Crew for a army of Skeletons?

Chittering Rats and Painful Memories some of the only black effects to create mill opportunity.

Thoughtpicker Witch if your opponent won't play along, make them.

Tortured Existence epic common! Definitely a value engine. Haunted Crossroads creates even more value.

And if possible Volrath's Stronghold

Love this build and concept.

If you’re open to feedback: Tortured Existence could add some potential value here. Perhaps even Cabal Initiate and/or Rancor , Muscle Burst/Diligent Farmhand for the life gain & beats.

Garna, the Bloodflame is kind of obvious ;)

Tortured Existence is insane, as is Phyrexian Reclamation.

To actually reanimate stuff, Doomed Necromancer, Phyrexian Delver and Dread Return are cool.

So the reason I think there should be boardwipes in a deck like this is that if you have incubate tokens out, you can rebuild much faster than other decks because you already have an army of artifact creatures, which is also why I think 34 lands is low, paying that 2 to use the incubate tokens adds up fast.Being able to rebuild faster means that you gain more advantage from the board being wiped than your opponents, on average. So I think any boardwipe that does not hit artifacts specifically will work. If you are concerned about recasting your commander, you can include ways to Reanimate (Animate Dead, Tortured Existence) your commander to avoid the command tax. but if you want to avoid hitting your commander there's always Toxic Deluge, The Meathook Massacre and Black Sun's Zenith as flexible boardwipes that do not necessarily hit Brimaz, Blight of Oreskos, as well as By Invitation Only, Kindred Dominance, and Tragic Arrogance. Another unrelated card that may be worthwhile is Monumental Corruption. It's risky, but if lifegain is added to the deck it's a great way to draw a burst of cards.

@ HatchMichael18 Thanks for your comment. those are good suggestions but unfortunately Mindcrank and Mimic Vat are not Pauper legal

Tortured Existence is already in the list ;)

@ LightEntropy Thank you! Fleshbag Marauder and Exquisite Huntmaster passed the try-outs successfully and are now on the team! :) Regenerate isn't quiet what i want my creatures to do since i am usually happy to put them in my graveyard. The regenerate ability doesn't synergize very well with syr konrad's ability
