you should give the deck categories like r/g or beasts or something so more people will see it.

alsoCold Storage Voyager Staff Tawnos's Coffin Safe Haven Command Beacon Cauldron of Souls AKA ways to get the hate seed out of play then back into play without needing to play commander tax.

Really like the deck. A few budget cards I find useful in my counter deck: Cauldron of Souls and Inspiring Call help you protect against crearure removal. Since you will be able to take off the -1 counters you can keep bringing them back after death. I am suprised to see how little graveyard reccursion there is considering your running the best colors for it. Necromantic Summons is good and gets you the creature back with some counters already on it. Your gonna want ways to bring creatures back since they will be big targets after they get huge. Lifecrafter's Gift hits all your creatures instead of one. Savage Summoning can surprise opponents with a blocker or just play a creature on end step before your turn so your creature doesnt have summoning sickness. Best used on a card thats really scary and does alot for you since it cant be countered. Scavenging Ooze graveyard removal and gets big quick. Festercreep since your dudes will be pretty big he can get rid of most of the board or just the pesky tokens.

"Giant pile of unfocused jank" is right, but I like the inclusion of Bloodfire Colossus. In the cage, he allows you to wipe the board and spread commander damage around at the cost of returning Mairsil to the command zone. Combined with Cauldron of Souls, Mairsil can return to the battlefield immediately.

in that case you'll want Ashnod's Altar, Goblin Bombardment, Mirror Entity, and probably Cauldron of Souls.

Maybe Solemnity as another Anafenza effect.

Demonic Tutor should go in literally every black deck haha, it might be the best card in MtG. If you want to go Voltron, replace your other creatures with equipment and spells. You want stuff that prevents damage to you directly, but not if it gives you less chances to buff your commander. That's why I recommended all the Exalted creatures, since they do both. Giving them Deathtouch helps ward off attacks too.

A Cauldron of Souls would do you good as well, since it gives you an extra shot against board-wipes and removal. Really, just add any equipment or enchantment or combat trick that protects your dude and removes blockers. Umezawa's Jitte, Loxodon Warhammer and Worldslayer come to mind.

Yea, these are great exceptions. I was going to add Emeria Shepherd, but just haven't yet.

I will need to keep those two in mind and I have a Cauldron of Souls n my Sek'Thuar deck.

very effective looking creature deck. This is almost the exact same build my Sigarda, Heron's Grace Deck would be if I could afford some of the more expensive cards. Maybe just some more creature recursion/protection? Seems really weak to creature hate decks and board wipes. Faith's Reward is one of my favorite. Cauldron of Souls can be reused each turn as well.

Just a reminder that you need something to give Mairsil haste if you are wanting to use Cauldron of Souls ability after Mairsil has persisted.
