Nice deck so far but I would change some things. I expect you want to cast your Commander as soon as possible. So I would add more ramp to your deck: Quirion Elves ramps, fixes mana and is an elf. Also Elves of Deep Shadow and Fyndhorn Elves. Another way are aritfacts. Commander's Sphere is nearly an autoinclude for every edh deck. I would cut Shrieking Affliction, Liliana's Caress, Bloodchief Ascension and Megrim as in Commander this cards have not enough impact on the board when everyone has 40 lifepoints. Also Dark Deal as mentioned above is an absolut must have for a Nath deck. Another good card is Champion of Lambholt. Other cards to cut:

I hope this helps.

@enpc: I was actually working on an Aggro-Control themed deck for this. I'll try to find more appropriate elements for this, but Avoid Fate stays for countering stuff that targets permanents.

BTW: I dunno if that many Rocks are needed actually. I'll check the forum posts later...

Kresh, Worldkiller

Yep, it's true. Kresh, known for mindless power, I'm trying to add control elements into the fray. My purpose is to see if I can put Kresh to Tier 3. To do this, I decided on a variety of Wincons (Kresh the Bloodbraided & Several damage dealers), (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, The Scorpion God, & any card that can loop.), (Survival of the Fittest & Sneak Attack), even stuff like Avoid Fate, Fog. So I ask you: What to add, & cut? I also want some options for stuff like Stranglehold, Grafdigger's Cage, even stuff that can help with my strategies. I wonder what you think of the deck thus far, as I'd like some adds & cuts. Thank you in advance. :)

Off-color counter-spells like Dawn Charm, Avoid Fate and Lapse of Certainty (I'm sure there are others like this).

Avoid Fate seems like it could easily be upgraded to Blossoming Defense

@Freakjob.

Thank you very much for the big reply! You make some great points, all witch I agree with. I looked into Genesis Wave before reading your reply, and now i feel very stupid for not getting its role! :) What a fantastic card for this deck.

I will check out your reddit comments while continuing to adjust my deck! I am going for a lower power level build to fit my playgroup, so I'm making it a straight up burn deck, with a bunch of ridiculous sorcery and instant spells that aims at making fun gameplay moments, (like Chain of Acid, and Avoid Fate). Because of the lack of permanents I unfortunately don't think Genesis Wave works very well in my deck. :/

I also decided not to go for fetches because of its anti-synergy with Scrying Sheets and other cards in my build (Lost in the Woods and Rowen). I added Into the North to add consistency to Scrying Sheets. However, I do agree with you, that playing fetches is the objectively better choice. When my deck is finally collected I will let you know how the snow covered land package is preforming!

Sincerely, Mr. Bob Johnson

I HAVE A SUGGESTION!

Change the one swamp to a Forest and Add a single

Avoid Fate Just in case you have one card left in your graveyard still have your maniac left out and need one spell to counter that magma spray or whatever else your opponent might try to blast your creature with.
