Sweet deck!!
Skullclamp sounds good here.
Also any thoughts about Blind Obedience or Gray Merchant of Asphodel?
Generous Gift or Anguished Unmaking are also good if you want to tune your point removal.

My recommendations :

I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.

I literally never noticed that Cabal Therapist didn't have to sac itself. Cool idea!

Of course, he might not stick around for awhile, but Lurrus of the Dream-Den would both fit this deck (though you'd have to take out the SFM package, or else just run him mainboard) and also make the discard in this deck not as good. I would think Surgical Extraction would be a great mainboard include here, both as a hedge against Lurrus decks and as a good way to strip decks of their core pieces. I think it's probably better than the 1-of Anguished Unmaking, and while 6 discard spells is standard, with the Cabal Therapist you could cut Thoughtseize to add the Extractions. Or perhaps Paths.

It's also a bit odd to think about, but I wonder if this could be tweaked to make use of Aether Vial, maybe with additional hatebears over the tokens? The big problem with Therapist is that you have to wait a turn to use it, but with Vial your opponents would have less of a window to respond.

Would love to know how this performs if you get to try it out!

Bloodthirsty Aerialist is a great card with all of your life gain.

Your also lite on versatile removal. Orzhov typically has the best removal with cards like Anguished Unmaking, and Despark. They could help you break through pillow fort strategies which can end up being a nightmare with your main win-con being a flood of vampires.

I feel like a broken record at this point, but I suppose it can't be helped, lol.

Some cards to consider for spot removal: Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking, and Utter End. They are played in the vast majority of Orzhov and Mardu decks for a reason.

Tribal decks are gonna wanna run Vanquisher's Banner and Herald's Horn for the same reason: they're just that good.

Finally, General Kudro of Drannith is a lord card, gave hate, AND (somewhat limited) spot removal in one package. Run him in this strategy, for the love of all that is pure and holy! Jirina will love you for it.

Thanks DrunkManSquakin666 for the suggestions! I initially thought Anguished Unmaking was a lot more than just 4$ which is why I didn't add it, but now that I know its relatively cheap I am adding it for sure. I'm thinking of taking out Unbreakable Formation for it, as it seems too situational. Sunforger seems like it could be powerful, although I don't have too many cheap instants/sorceries to make it super explosive. This list is more focused on getting a lot of humans out and swinging in for some damage rather than equipment, but I appreciate the idea and I'll think about it.

Chaos Warp is a good card if you're in Rakdos, but having access to white gives you much better options that don't come with the inherent risk of swapping the target out for something worse.

Seriously, why are so few people putting Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, or Utter End in their upgraded versions of this precon?! Don't wanna be mean, but these cards should be the first cards that come to mind for spot removal.

Also, you might wanna reconsider using Queen Marchesa. She is not card draw, she's a bullseye on your forehead. Wonderful Pillowfort commander, but more often than not, you ain't keeping that Monarch for long without a way to blink her or deter attackers.

Glad to see someone has a brain in their head and added Vindicate and Utter End to the deck, lol.

You might wanna consider Anguished Unmaking for good measure, though. Maybe play around with the idea of a Sunforger package?

In either case, you're definitely on to something with this. Good job! :)
