You can certainly substitute a variety of sacrifice outlets for Viscera Seer, but it depends on why you want to substitute.
Greater Gargadon has the advantage of being essentially not interactable with, but it also turns itself off after a little while, so you may run into issues there, and personally that's why I don't run it. 5-10 sacrifices may be enough for some games, but I often find I'm sacrificing 2-4 creatures PER TURN at times, and at that point gargadon wouldn't be much use.

Hey, good budget version of Zagras.
Dagger Caster is another Goblin Chainwhirler effect who's much easier to cast. Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Viscera Seer combine to repeatedly cast Caster or Chainwhirler or other creatures. Seer sacs the creature and then you can cast it again from your graveyard with Chainer. This interaction is also good with Taborax, Hope's Demise and Malakir Blood-Priest for repeatable draw/grow Taborax/each opponent loses life/you gain life each time Priest ETB. Hooded Blightfang is repeatable life loss for each opponent and life gain for you since it triggers for each creature with deathtouch who attacks.
Pain Seer, Oona's Blackguard and Goblin Cratermaker are good budget two drops for party. Seer and Cratermaker can really benefit when having deathtouch. Chaos Warp and Feed the Swarm are ways to remove an opponent's enchantment in Rakdos and Warp can remove any permanent which is very versatile instant removal.
Dark Ritual can help to ramp into a quick Zagras. Command Tower is a staple Rainbow land in Commander for multicolored decks and Path of Ancestry is another Rainbow land that can be repeatable scry when you cast a Rogue or Vampire with it.
These 13 cards can could be added for around $8 at TCGPlayer, see list
Some budget upgrades to consider:
- Dagger Caster --> Viashino Fangtail
- Chainer, Nightmare Adept --> Graveshifter
- Viscera Seer --> Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
- Malakir Blood-Priest --> Mogg War Marshal
- Hooded Blightfang --> Judith, the Scourge Diva
- Pain Seer --> Rushblade Commander
- Oona's Blackguard --> Blackbloom Rogue
- Goblin Cratermaker --> Banewhip Punisher
- Chaos Warp --> Walk the Plank
- Feed the Swarm --> Price of Fame
- Dark Ritual --> Forked Bolt
- Command Tower --> 1x Mountain
- Path of Ancestry --> 1x Swamp
Good luck with your deck.

My Haakon list was fairly slow, but when it worked it was hard to interrupt. My playgroup learned very quickly how to stop it and he became a target. I had him for a little bit before selling 12 EDH decks (including Haakon) because I was in college at the time and keeping up with 15+ decks was too time consuming and too much money. I always meant to come back to him and now is the time.
Because I have been out of the Magic scene, I have been trying to research new cards and potential combos. When I found Netherborn Altar I knew I wanted to get back to Haakon since there is more than one way to get him out now. I remembered your deck so I came back to check it out. Still love it. Thanks for answering all of my questions. I've been debating on starting from scratch which is why I asked so many. A couple more for you before I start rebuilding or tweaking.
Viscera Seer? Do you have enough sac outlets?
What do you do in the event of early gravehate?
Thanks for answering these again, man. Great to talk to someone who plays one of my favorite commanders/cards in all of Magic.
I definitely understand trying to find non-english version of cards. One of my pioneer decks I have been trying to get Japanese foils but Covid makes that so damn difficult.

This isn't a bad start for a 1st attempt. However, you may want to become a tad more creature focused and elevate the quality of the creatures - Lampad of Death's Vigil could be replaced by Viscera Seer a free outlet that gives you a scry. Additionally, you could add Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Lesser Masticore - with that free sac outlet you could scry through your whole deck and if you add an aristocrat like Blood Artist or Cruel Celebrant you can drain table; though I would definitely see if your group would be okay with combos before implementing them into a deck :) anyways, hope you enjoy the format.

Woe Strider, Priest of Forgotten Gods, and Viscera Seer are all pretty good for sacrificing. I think Bolas's Citadel is fine, but it feels like more of a win more card here. Also I know you wanted suggestions on sacrifice outlets, but I think you can definitely do better than Cancel here when it comes to counters (maybe Hinder. Hope this helps.

Neotrup is correct. If you do this on your turn, you lose. If you do it on other Syr Konrad player's turn, you can survive if you have enough triggers to kill them, because if a player loses everything they own is immediately exiled including spells and abilities on the stack. Whether or not player 3 dies to that sequence, you can at least not die yourself if you sequence it right.
To make it work, you have to activate Viscera Seer when they'll put triggers on the stack first. Their Syr Konrad trigger goes on the stack, then yours. Let your trigger resolve, then sacrifice your next creature and repeat. This will ensure that your triggers all resolve before your opponent ever gets resolve one to deal damage to you.

When a creature dies, both Syr Konrad, the Grims trigger. Once one resolves, before the other does, you can sacrifice another creature to Viscera Seer to repeat the process. So if your Syr Konrad's ability was the one that resolved, your opponents will be losing life and you won't be, but there will be a number of abilities piling up to make you lose life, so you'll want to eliminate the controller of those abilities before they have a chance to resolve.
So the question becomes, can you make your Syr Konrad's ability be the one to resolve rather than the other player's? This depends on who's turn it is. When a creature dies, both trigger, and player's add the abilities to the stack in Active Player Non-Active Player (APNAP) order. If it's your turn, you'll put yours on the stack, then your opponent will. The stack resolves top down, so your opponent's will resolve first, making sure you die. If it's their turn, the opposite happens and you can hopefully kill them. If it's the other player's turn, whoever's next in turn order adds their ability to the stack first, so it's the same situation as being that player's turn.
If you did need a to bleed the third player a little more (if they have the most life) you could let a few instances of your opponent's Syr Konrad's ability resolve, just as long as you don't allow enough to kill you.

you should link the cards in question so people can know what you are talking about.
