Assemble the Legion
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a muster counter on Assemble the Legion. Then put a 1/1 red and white Soldier creature token with haste onto the battlefield for each muster counter on Assemble the Legion.

A really nice decklist you've put together here, it's worthy of the great goat-mother! I love all the weird litle synergies between the cards. Exspecially the combination of Oblivion Ring , Worldpurge and Barren Glory is just phenomenal, as Barren Glory is simply one of the funniest alternate wincons ever printed!
For the suggestions there's only one card I think would fit in this deck perfectly: Clever Impersonator can be everything you want and is just a better Phyrexian Metamorph in my opinion. You might also be running booth for even more fun ;) Simply imagine to have 3x Assemble the Legion in combination with Paradox Haze ...
Maybe you are also interested in having a look at my own Zedruu-decklist: Zedruu, Enlightened Master :)

Personally I'd say:
Relic Seeker : Unless you can reliably get damage through with it I'm not sure how often you will tutor with it.
Assemble the Legion : While a super fun card, I'm not sure how well it synergizes. While yes, it can be a win-con because of the tokens, it seems too slow to be able to kill a whole table with it.
I can't think of a third, but this is my 2 cents

One of my favorite cards was Assemble the Legion . It totaly destroyed my playgroup when we all where new to the game.
An other favorite of mine is Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker cuz its bolas do i need to explain? ;)

I run Marath too, and your deck is awesome. I've always been curious to try enchantress effects.
I would recommend Ivy Lane Denizen , Seedborn Muse , Basilisk Collar , Mentor of the Meek , Privileged Position , Cryptolith Rite , Ranging Raptors , Ripjaw Raptor , and maybe Fecundity if you're desperate for card draw.. which I doubt you are. Take those with a grain of salt, because I love your list. Those are just the major players in my list that I think you could benefit from too.
I would recommend cutting Assemble the Legion . In my experiance its brutally slow and I've never been excited to see it in my hand.

It's a nice "classic" Zedruu you've built here :) Exspecially your description made it worth an upvote from me! As someone who's playing Zedruu without exceptions it's always nice to see someone building here on a different approach. While mine is built around being a nice person, offering a lot of political support (Have a look if you're interested: Zedruu, Enlightened Master ), etc. , yours is more evil while still staying true to the way of Zedruu <3
My suggestions: 1. Glacial Chasm as it is a great card on its own it is even more so when combined with Solemnity which you are allready running. 2. The Clever Impersonator can be everything you want it to be... something like a second Paradox Haze or Assemble the Legion might always be usefull... 3. The Humble Defector is a very usefull tool to forge alliances with your opponents. There's nothing that connects two players more than a shared Defector... <3 Always remember: Zedruu is love, Zedruu is life!

enpc: you've convinced me, in light of this deck not doing as well as it can, I've revamped it. While I agree with DespairFaction that 14 pieces of ramp is too much, I have increased the amount of ramp, card draw, and interaction the deck has. I replaced Hedron Archive with Mind Stone , dropped Solemn Simulacrum for Fellwar Stone and added cards like Mox Opal and Mox Diamond to make the deck more competitive. I swapped out Nahiri, the Harbinger for a Dispatch and have kept the artifact lands in light of now having 3 things that care about my number of artifacts and I rarely find myself with both of them on the field so Vandalblast doesn't hurt too bad. I also put in a Martial Coup as well as adding back in Scroll Rack for card filtering and the good ol' Rack Tax combo. I've also upgraded the land base a tad bit by adding in City of Brass and Mana Confluence in for the red and white deserts. I have also focused in more on lowering the average cmc of the deck, and did by bringing it down by over 0.3. I focused on finding better cards, such as Luminarch Ascension in for Assemble the Legion since it is so slow. I have also swapped out Hanweir Militia Captain Flip for Legion Warboss as it is better.

The_Fallen_Duke, thanks for the advice! Curses are the primary focus, although the deck is less about politics and more about bleeding out opponents while preventing them from hurting me. Effects like Ghostly Prison neutralize go-wide and token strategies, while the more Stax-y sacrifice effects take out large, individual creatures.
Assemble the Legion gets much, much stronger as the game goes on, and this deck very much wants to drag the game out. Mogis, God of Slaughter fills the role of a big, dumb creature that drains my opponents' life and denies them creatures. Bounty Hunter actually combos with Hunter of Eyeblights , Kulrath Knight , and Mathas, Fiend Seeker himself, who uses the same kind of counter. There's also some other cards that fit into this sub-theme, like Orzhov Advokist and Curse of Stalked Prey . Since the deck is focused on draining life from my opponents, any form of repeatable lifegain puts me at a disadvantage. Tainted Remedy pretty conclusively deals with that.
Of course, even if those are my reasons for putting these cards in, there's no guarantee that doing so actually works in the long run. I'll definitely look at cutting out some of the less useful removal.

Something I consistently enjoy about Gahiji is its ability to skew from straight token beats to silly political aggro - the right mix of beats vs politics is ultimately up to your play style and meta.
