Black Sun's Zenith Discussion

Id also cut down to 24 lands. (22 swamp and 2 ghost quarter) I'd add a second Liliana of the Dark Realms. Black Sun's Zenith might be good too. (Goes kind of well with Mutilate). One Languish in the sideboard as well. I think two Noxious Gearhulk is enough considering it costs 6 mana. You could also play between 2-4 Mind Stone for a little ramp.

You're not running any sweepers: Black Sun's Zenith let's you wipe the board and leaves you with an army. Clear Shot and Ambuscade seem better than Hunt the Weak if you're taking advantage of your little death touchers.

Instead of Harrow try running Search for Tomorrow. Even though Harrow is an instant and not a sorcery compared to Search for Tomorrow you don't have to sacrifice a land as an additional cost, and turn one you can suspend it to that mana ramp turn three. Fatal Push might also be good for removal here as well. Plus some cards that let you draw. Necropotence is personally my favorite but you could also run Harmonize, Night's Whisper, and Sign in Blood. Black Sun's Zenith might also be a better choice than Toxic Deluge. World at War and Seize the Day could also help beat some opponents down.

I would drop the signets as well. Plus you should grab a Command Tower and Chromatic Lantern to replace them. Staff of Nin is also an EDH staple to carry you through card draws late game. And more board clears would be good. You have tons of instant and sorcery copy, but you're light on removal, especially against swarm-style decks. Black Sun's Zenith and Hero's Downfall are both pretty useful against pretty much any deck. And the good ol' Counterspell is your primary answer to hexproof creatures. You probably want to get a little heavier on the top end of your creature board as well. Frost Titan and Emrakul, the Promised End are both incredible in EDH, and you can run Noxious Gearhulk too which is crazy good. Grave Titan might not be a bad choice as well. Or if you're willing to fork over the money, Sheoldred, Whispering One can take over games.

I'd start by narrowing down to either killing the opponent's creatures or your own creatures. Doing so will give you a more streamlined gameplan. The value of each strategy will depend on your meta-- a lot of midrange and zoo decks will favor the former strategy while a lot of burn and control will favor the latter.

For killing your opponent's stuff, I like the inclusion of The Scorpion God, although you can't actually cast him at the moment. Cards like Necroskitter and Black Sun's Zenith caqn help you capitalize on the counters.

For killing your own stuff, I'd try to find cheaper ways to gain value. Grim Haruspex and Grave Pact are faster than Harvester of Souls and Butcher of Malakir. I'd also consider Bloodsoaked Champion and Bloodghast as replacements for Gravecrawler since you don't have many zombies now. One of my favorite sac outlets is Viscera Seer for a deck like this.

I'd remove Triskelion, Wood Elves because Nissa's got it covered, Maelstrom Pulse is not as great in commander, unfortunately.Also, i'm considering Killing Wave over Black Sun's Zenith.

Hex Parasite is good to keep your creatures undying/persisting. Grim Flayerfor mulching. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Archetype of Endurance in the triskelion spot. Lightning Greaves or other creature protection is going to be necessary to keep 'Meren the gains.

If i have a single Obelisk Spider and Strionic Resonator on the battlefield then play Black Sun's Zenith would i; A) have the opponent lose 1 life and I gain 1 life for each creature I place -1/-1 counter on plus one extra for the copied ability or B) have the opponent lose 2 life and I gain 2 life for each creature I place -1/-1 counter on as if i had 2 Obelisk Spiders on the field
