Hello, your deck has some potential. Just some advices:

  1. I think you should replace Grasp of Darkness for Dismember, that -1/-1 extra could be truly useful for some tanky creatures. Also, you can distribute those mana as you want. That extra mana/life is worth of being paid.

  2. Victim of Night for something like Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, Gatekeeper of Malakir, etc.

  3. Cordial Vampire is a must since Modern Horizons was released. You must play it. It doesnt only go well with your removal, it goes well with chomp blocks, or even if you consider that Gatekeeper of Malakir that I mentioned before, It could be truly awesome.

  4. There are some planeswalker that could fit truly well in this deck, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, you could make some nasty combos like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord + Bloodlord of Vaasgoth at turn 3; Liliana, the Last Hope can help you to get some of your vampires in safe goal, even if you put that Cordial Vampire mentioned before, you could be buffing your vampires meanwhile removing some tiny things, like mana fixers.

  5. Asylum Visitor seems pretty week and have a hard condition in some decks, you could sustitute it for Phyrexian Arena or something annexed to tribal deck.

  6. Some cards like Urge to Feed, Shadow Alley Denizen, Bloodghast, Thoughtseize, Dash Hopes, Collective Brutality, could be some cards interesting to contemplate.

I've worked with some madness cards before and the conclusion I've come to almost every time is that it's just too expensive. Playing a 2 mana or 3 mana card and then casting a 2 mana Asylum Visitor or From Under the Floorboards is impossible for much of the game, especially if you're even thinking of retracing Raven's Crime or if you decide to discard a few lands to your Mind Rake.

I also don't like Asylum Visitor as it only provides card advantage once you're already in the game state you want to be in (clear board, no cards in hands, both top-decking). One of my pet cards is Cryptbreaker, which I think would work better as a one man army and engine in that board state anyway and is also harder to clean up, unfortunately it's also more expensive. A Gurmag Angler could also work well given the amount of cards you're going to put into the graveyard and has the added benefit of recurring your Nether Spirits if a Call to the Netherworld isn't enough. I've also been very impressed by Knight of the Ebon Legion in Modern Cube, but it is a bit expensive.

9-lives Wow! Thanks for the feedback. I love the ideas here.

Dusk Legion Zealot was going to be a two mana cantrip that would be sac'd to Sorin or Indulgent Aristocrat. If I wanted to keep the aristocrat aspect would Martyr of Dusk be a good inclusion? If so, I could swap out Asylum Visitor as I mainly use the Visitor for when I'm in top-deck mode.

Vampire of the Dire Moon is a great choice! I was going to recommend it before I saw you already had it! However, I would look for Vampires that are heavy hitters because your deck is mostly consisting of low mana cost low P/T, as Vampire Nocturnus and Asylum Visitor are your strongest cards at a Power of 3; I know that your synergies of +P/+T are useful for your low P/T cards, but if I were you I would still want to run at least a few stronger cards!

Hey, you can do a lot with a $60 budget for upgrades. For non madness, do you still want to play the Worldgorger combo? Again this combo will be at least $20 of the $60 budget. Without the combo you could make plenty of other upgrades for $20, but the combo makes your deck much more competitive.

For multicolored decks I always start with allocating enough of the budget for the manabase, to add some playable lands. I figure I need to have a good manabase otherwise what's the point in making the deck if I can't consistently cast cards. For your deck I would start with adding these lands:

If playing non madness, still play some madness cards that become better when you discard them with Anje. There's really reason to not take some advantage of playable madness cards with Anje as Commander.

Other advice I can give will be determined on if you want to play the Worldgorger combo. I'm basing it on the combo because your deck can look quite a bit different if not playing the combo.

Hi, i do play a discard deck too, and i can give you some advice from experience, Cards like Megrim or Liliana's caress are underperforming if you're not playing with wheels, since you're opponent are quickly going to play topdecking. I prefer cards like Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction and Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage dealing a lot more damage if you are consistent with discard effect.

I really think targeted discard effect are kinda clunky, like Pilfering Imp you already gonna make everyone discard so fast that card selection isn't that important, and you'd better have some removal instead.

Also, i really think you should include some ramp into the deck, that allow you to play your hand and not suffer too much from the symetric discard effects and play your high curve spells early on (else you just gonna discard them) in the same way, i really like to include "free" spells like Snuff Out or Massacre . Ramping or Mana efficiency is really a key in multiplayer EDH and you're going to suffer a lot if you can't play faster.

I really like to play with "not in hand" card like Experimental Frenzy or Theater of Horrors that let's you play with cards even if everyone has no hand.

I'm not a fan of Sanguine Bond exquisite blood combo in this type of decks, because the cards alone are pretty bad, but one card i'm really not enjoying on discard lists is living death. your deck is fill with some week creatures and you're never gonna get more value then your opponents with a living death. Targeted Reanimator spell can be good, like Reanimate , opponent discarding an ulamog turn 1 cause he's never gonna play him ? just take it for 1.

As a suggestion i think you missed out Anje's Ravager a really sweet card in this type of deck and Asylum Visitor

Thoose are just thought on how i like my discard commander decks, take what you need and what you think is fitting your playstyle !

I saw some variant of this go up against GW taxes in modern. Did pretty well.

Only drawback I remember is with Voldaren Pariah  Flip. Someone can kill it in response to you sac'ing 3 creatures.

Any deck that makes use of the budget Dark Confidant cough Asylum Visitor cough gets a +1 from me tho

4x Snapcaster Mage and 4x Asylum Visitor I would give a try for card advantage.
