For an EDH deck to do well, the individual creatures should be more than just fancy sacrifice outlets but have actual utility and use.

Nest of Scarabs practically goes infinite. Very good for proliferating, too.

Necroskitter works well with your commander. A little pricey, but powerful.

Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Deathgreeter are good for gaining life if you find yourself running short a lot. The first 2 are also great wincons.

Skullclamp , because who doesn't want more cards?

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Genesis Chamber , and Westvale Abbey  Flip are great token generators.

CrowMutini, I like your design, searching for lands and exiling enchantments. it's very green white. However, I think two lands might be a bit too much (though they do go into hand... hmmm...)

Now to create a land-into-planeswalker... I think that a solid design to follow for this challenge is Westvale Abbey  Flip, though that partifcular design is very colorless friendly. Maybe something color specific?

Horvath, Imprisoned in Stone

Legendary Land - Mountain Plains

: add or

At the end of combat on your turn, if 5 or more creatures died this turn, you may pay . If you do, return all creatures that you control that died this turn to the battlefield, then transform Horvath, Imprisoned in Stone

Horvath, Champion of Ages

Legendary Planeswalker - Horvath

+1: Target creature you control gets first strike and +1/+1 until end of turn for each creature that entered the battlefield this turn.

+1: Create a 1/1 Soldier creature token with first strike and haste.

-5: Create three 1/1 soldier creature tokens with first strike and haste. You gain an emblem with "Creatures you control gain +1/+1 for each creature that entered the battlefield this turn"


New Challenge: create a saga-into-planeswalker or saga-into-creature (because we make a lot of planeswalkers...) that's simple enough to fit the textbox, but that might fail (example: if the transform trigger is at stage 3, there may be a condition that might not be met, and transformation doesn't occur). This would create a neat tension where the opponent has another way to interact with the saga beyond just destroying it.

Also newer cards would be great for the sideboard here like Assassin's Trophy and Collector Ouphe . For the main board, how about a copy of each of these Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Westvale Abbey  Flip?

Avacyn, Thrice Fallen

Flying, menace, lifelink

Non-white angels and demons get +2/+2 and have menace and lifelink.

The Helvault destroyed her will. Emrakul destroyed her mind. Ormendahl destroyed her soul.

Make and Ormendahl card that can corrupt angels/creatures.

Note: Ormendahl is the flip side of Westvale Abbey  Flip.

Aye I love graveyard decks so I got a bunch of fun ideas for ya to try out. If ya also want, I recommend checking out my meren deck to help ya out with some ideas, especially because golgari fits into Sultai colors.

So first thing is your commander exiles all creatures from all players. So having cards that make everybody sac creatures is really useful. Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , and Fleshbag Marauder are all wonderful creatures that forces everybody to sac a creature. You simply sac one of these guys when they enter the field, so you dont lose anything and your opponent will lose something and ideally cause your commander to gain an ability. I recommend to having at least Plaguecrafter because its the best one. Next are sorcery/instant that can cause everybody to sac stuff. Pox and Smallpox are my favorite because it can cause your opponents to lose a lot of tempo and it simply benefits you because you have potential of getting a lot of keyword abilities. Innocent Blood is an also nice sac card to help you out.

Sac outlets are also very important in this deck. You do run a decent amount but one that is really good and you are missing is Razaketh, the Foulblooded . It lets you sac whatever creature you want so you get more keyword abilities but it also tutors any card you want which is very solid. What's nice is you are able to get flying and trample if you sac Razaketh to itself. Westvale Abbey  Flip is another sac outlet that im surprised you dont have in the deck. It can be hard to get a 5 creature sac but when you do you get a really powerful creature that can easily help you win the game. Sidisi, Undead Vizier is nice because you can sac it to itself, tutor a card and give your commander deathtouch.

A nice boardwipe that can help you out is Massacre Wurm . very strong creature, can kill off a lot of creatures by just entering the field, and if it kills any keyword ability creatures your commander can get stronger.

For cuts, just pick whatever you think is lack luster. i do think though Tempt with Discovery can be easily cut for one of the cards I mentioned or for another ramp spell. Tempt with discovery is mainly only good for land decks or people running really high powerlands. You arent playing anything to crazy, so somebody can simply take a tempt get a Cabal Coffers , Gaea's Cradle , or a Stripmine and simply get a lot more ramp then you will or simply destroy your best land and just cause you to go downhill.

A couple more recommendations because they make black and white tokens: Daxos the Returned , Knight of the Last Breath , and Westvale Abbey  Flip.

Chhris on Rayami with Ormendahl?

When transformed creatures leave the battlefield for any reason, flicker, etc, they transform back to their original face. Eg, Ravager of the Fells turns back into Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip if it goes to the graveyard/exile/ flicker and et again.

I think unfortunately, it would be Westvale Abbey  Flip that gets the blood counter, not Ormendahl, Profane Prince

1) The ping is as much of a concern here as it if for Dark Confidant . You could possibly remove the Canopy lands to alleviate the pain.

2) I used to have Westvale Abbey  Flip in here but was ousted after they conflicted with Mutavault too often. I may bring it back with mutavault no longer present.

3) Leylines will probably come in in place of Smuggler's Copter , Diregraf Colossus , and probably a Fatal Push . For specific fine tuned numbers it really depends on the specific matchup.
