I would swap Funeral Rites for Village Rites. That's two less CMC at instant speed and useful for all the death triggers you have in the deck.

I am not a fan of single use sacrifice card drawing in commander. Instead of single use sorcery cards, Put repeatable card draw in the deck. Because you are in black there are some options that involve sacrifice for flavor as well as getting you repeatable card advantage. Cards like;

Ayara, First of Locthwain, Erebos, Bleak-Hearted, Vampiric Rites and Smothering Abomination. Both of the last two are basically repeatable versions of Village Rites.

Last thing, you can go infinite With Smothering Abomination and a mana-less or free sacrifice outlet like a Viscera Seer or similar. You can draw cards forever and your only limit is how many token creatures you can put into play.

I am, actually, and I'd like to use creatures like God-Eternal Bontu as well.

I may have overestimated my need for tokens, since I thought I'd need at least 20 token generators. I was afraid cards like Village Rites would end up being dead cards.

I would recommend about 10-13 on average, you need to balance ramp, card draw, interaction, threats, and lands, so that seems like an okay number!

I love the idea of using Village Rites, I assume you are considering the other options like Costly Plunder that do similar work?

I want to build a token deck with Nethroi, Apex of Death as my commander. I want most of the card draw to be based on sacrifice effects like Village Rites.

The biggest concern I have with this deck is that I won't have enough tokens or sac outlets to generate the card draw that I need: how many sacrifice / draw cards and token generating cards would you recommend?
