Winding Canyons could be a solid way to give flash to your commander. You can tutor for it with Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor or even Beseech the Queen.

Also, I feel that you don't really need to go all in on huge casting costs in order to benefit from your commander. There are great 5-drop dragons and demons that really help you gain board presence in the early game, but still provide great value when cast with the Rakdos discount. Archfiend of Depravity, Bloodgift Demon(helps you trigger Rakdos), Indulgent Tormentor...Glorybringer, Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite.. These creatures make it such that your deck doesn't fall flat on its face when Rakdos gets answered, which is a mistake I see often with Rakdos Lord of Riots. Casting two five drops for four mana is still backbreaking.

JonahBloodbath not really. While Twilight Prophet and Archfiend of Depravity are decent cards, they don't really fit with the faerie theme that's going on with this deck. However, if you think they could work, you won't know until you try, so get the card or a proxy of the card and throw it in there. Experimenting with decks is the best way to figure out how they work and if they're good.

Hi,

Considering your strategy, Sunblast Angel and Archfiend of Depravity could be useful. Also, we'd really recommend some more land and ramp cards (Dark Ritual, Land Tax and Weathered Wayfarer come to mind).

Have fun with the deck!

Regards,

If Isareth is your main way to try to get creatures out, then Buried Alive and Entomb are helpful. Bojuka Bog and Cabal Coffers are great lands in these decks. Razaketh, the Foulblooded is one of the best demons ever printed imo. Archfiend of Depravity is another good one. Black has the best tutors in the game, so if you have the money, use them. Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Demonic Tutor... Also, the planeswalker Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath makes demons.

ok, Sultai Ascendancy is out (getting the 3 right colors turn 3 was a crapshot anyway).
Training Grounds is def out, it really wouldn't feel good at all, its prob only worth running with a commander than can utilize it. The Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip has actually been really good for me at least, it allows you to recast some pretty strong spells, potentially twice.
I used to have a Archfiend of Depravity but it does nothing vs the people I play vs, they either play mass wipes or just dotn swarm the board. The people who play tokens, Necroplasm is better for that since he digs himself out of graveyard by himself.
The new lich is replacing the Taigam.
I'm gonna have to think about your other suggestions overtime, if you have anymore, please go ahead, much appreciated!

Also the beacon wouldn't work, need a card to stop decking myself liek Vigor or a titan, one that doesnt reshuffle the whole graveyard back.

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born and Cryptbreaker have good synergy. Grimgrin is a beater, affects the board with specific removal, is a sacrifice engine, and goes well with Necrotic Ooze/Phenax, and like Cryptbreaker (gotta love them one drops) it goes well with this commander and her expendable zombies.

Sultai Ascendancy is a rather weak card, it's a 3 drop with no immediate effect, only digs two cards deep, only mills one card and at upkeep, and is one less creature to be made a 2/2 zombie from Sidisi. Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip isn't the best, he flips too quickly, his ultimate mills your opponent's not you, unlike Eternal Witness it can only recur instant/sorceries then exiles them. Thrashing Brontodon is a good piece of removal but you could upgrade with Reclamation Sage/Caustic Caterpillar/Assassin's Trophy. Vizier of Many Faces is alright, I thought I should mention Clever Impersonator/Phyrexian Metamorph/Evil Twin. Maybe Drana instead of Taigam? Venser, Shaper Savant/Royal Assassin/Archfiend of Depravity v Dream Eater? Just stuff to consider. Training Grounds is a wasted slot, it works with a handful of cards and synergy is good but always assume the worst case scenario, and ask if you would really target this card with Skullwinder.

I think you've made a fine deck otherwise. And to answer your question about a card that shuffles back alone, would Beacon of Unrest suffice?
