Black Sun's Zenith Discussion

Nice deck sir, a interesting twist! +1 from me. I would suggest to cut out Stuffy Doll for it will die to wither before being of much use if Everlasting Torment is around. Maybe Necroskitter for a sweet and large board? Also Black Sun's Zenith for a mechanically related wipes ;). Having wither, Boros Reckoner can also make for good defence. Well, good luck and have fun!

As a big fan of UB control, I usually use man-lands, and you got cheap lands like Dread Statuary, which are awesome to close the game...
Another great card that I always use is Recoil. It's awesome when they got no cards in the hand, as they act as pseudo-removal some permanents that for the colors are hard to get rid once they are in the battlefield...
Six creatures that cost 6 is a lot too, you only need about half, because you only need them in the hand later in the game...etherling is the best of the bunch....
Overall your idea is correct, UB control tends to be around that type of cards you are using: creature removal, counters, discard, and a big finisher to close the game...

If it were me, and I know its not, I would potentially cut Seasons Past or Burgeoning. As much as I like the idea of both of those cards, Seasons Past is a bit on the costly side, especially with and Burgeoning is an awesome way to get the whole table to focus fire you to dust before it reaps benefits. That being said, I am speaking from the perspective of my meta and not yours.
To answer your question: I probably would cut Black Sun's Zenith- at least to playtest.
Also, I finally had the chance to look through the new spoiled set and I was curious about your thoughts on World Shaper. Looks like an amazing card. I think I am going to playtest it for sure. Have you considered it?

K34 Thanks for the help. I'm thinking about adding some cards like Reiterate, Reverberate and even Swarm Intelligence or Snapcaster Mage and Echo Mage (but the latter is pretty slow compared to Snapcaster Mage). I'm putting Kess, Dissident Mage on my 99 'cause she's very good. I think I should consider adding Nivix Guildmage and Izzet Guildmage because of the copies, but there must be better cards.
goblinguiderevealpls Thanks a lot for the help. I checked your primer and it's amazing, upvoting it! I was wondering if it would harm me to cut off some cards like Propaganda, No Mercy and Dissipation Field in order to favor boardwipers like Black Sun's Zenith, Damnation and Plague Wind but I don't know if they're viable options considering that I have Archfiend of Ifnir. I'm also thinking about adding the cards copy spell cards I mentioned above and also adding drawing spells like Curiosity and Consecrated Sphinx. What do you think?

A few other cards worth mentioning:
Liliana, Death Wielder might also work. Very High CMC...

There aren't a lot of rakdos commanders that draw cards; so he is very cool in that sense. I believe the only other is Lyzolda, the Blood Witch which could even go in the 99
Black Sun's Zenith is your friend for sure. As is a TON of ramp since he costs 5 mana and his ability is another 3 mana. I feel you'd need a lot of control options to grind into the late game, and/or blast out of the gate with ramp
I've been wanting to build it but haven't yet. I ran Olivia Voldaren for a while and in the same fashion it needed a lot of mana to get going.
