What will be most effective depends heavily on context.

If you have access to blue, the most generally good cards are the aforementioned Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, and Consecrated Sphinx. I think you can safely add Stroke of Genius and Blue Sun's Zenith to that category, though of course they serve a different role from the permanents.

If your deck has a lot of support for ETB abuse, such as clones, bounce, flick, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Cloudstone Curio, etc. then Mulldrifter is very useful.

In red and white, the best draw option is usually Skullclamp with tokens and/or sacrifice. Mentor of the Meek is decent as well, but white's meager advantage really comes from recursion such as Sun Titan, Reveillark, Gift of Immortality, etc. and Land Tax abuse. In red's case, it's either timely Wheel of Fortune effects or piddly things like Outpost Siege and Chandra, Pyromaster.

Essentially if you have access to blue you want to lean on that. I tend to prefer permanents / engines to one-off draws but, again, it really depends a lot on the deck and the meta.

Let's continue digging into this :) You make good points - my response:

The problem I have with Underworld Connections is that it triggers once per turn cycle. Greed can be activated any number of times (life and mana permitting), so it's super helpful to dig for those combo pieces.

Chandra, Pyromaster does have amazing art, and I understand about pet cards haha. In my (previously-linked) Adriana deck, Mana Echoes is basically in there as a pet card because I've been trying to use it forever. Same story as yours with regards to Wild Ricochet, actually. It's worth mentioning that Mana Echoes triggers for at least one mana for EVERY creature, since every creature shares a type with itself :) My dream in my Adriana deck is to go "Martial Coup for 5, add 25 mana to my mana pool, Tempt with Vengeance for 25, swing for like 400 on an empty board".

I agree that Vampire Hexmage isn't as good here as it is in some other decks. But with regards to your combo, she seems better than Thief of Blood because she comes down for less mana (and thus you could cast her the same turn as a tutor). Both cards have a situational upside (one kills planeswalkers or big creatures, the other swings for hella damage) so it depends which you value more.

You're right that Lightning Greaves isn't super good here. For some reason, in my head, Marchesa needed to be on the battlefield to give you card draw for being the monarch :/

On another topic, do you feel like you have enough sacrifice outlets to make the deck "tick"? Most of your combos require one.

Since you left such an expansive comment on my Adriana deck, I wanted to take some time and look this deck over more :)

Diabolic Intent seems better than Diabolic Tutor since your commander makes tokens (though of course neither is as good as Demonic Tutor, which you're already playing).

I've never been a fan of Underworld Connections without some way of untapping lands; it's like a Phyrexian Arena that eats your mana for the rest of the game.

I'm surprised not to see Lightning Greaves in here. At the very least, it protects your commander or your win-con (notably, that tasty Marit lage that your deck is trying to produce). Swiftfoot Boots also gets a mandatory mention.

Speaking of Marit can now get a FTV foiled token and Dark Depths! I would include Vampire Hexmage in the deck as well. Not only can she get you your giant Kraken earlier, but she also can assassinate a planeswalker or large creature as needed. She's an amazing card in EDH even without the wombo-combo with Dark Depths.

Initially, I couldn't understand why Viridian Longbow was in the deck. Then I realized that you can use it to snipe creatures with Queen Marchesa, which is hilarious. But why not go all the way, and include Chandra's Ignition and Arcbond? Then you can use your commander as an unexpected board wipe - double points if you can give her lifelink beforehand.

I feel like Chandra, Pyromaster and Sorin Markov are weak here. The former is because you have better sources of "draw" and because the burn is relatively unimpressive. The latter is because if you plan to combo off, their life total shouldn't matter anyway - though he is very helpful if you plan to deal them that last ten damage (obviously!). I always refer to my old mantra in Commander: most damage is infinite, so life doesn't matter. Maybe it's only a thing in my meta?

Dance of the Dead also combos with Leonin Relic-Warder in the same way as Animate Dead, and can give you access to big ETB effects from any player's GY. I play the big trio of black "enchant dead" cards in most of my black EDH decks - Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, and Necromancy. I would also add Enlightened Tutor, which digs for a pillow fort card or a combo piece as needed, and perhaps Expedition Map, which can find your Dark Depths.

Decree of Pain is an amazing card in the late-game, and could replace one of your mass removal spells. There are many board wipes that can dig you out of a bad situation, but this is the only one that can win you the game in the process. Its cycling mode is also pretty nice at instant speed.

I've never liked Wild Ricochet. I never have it when I need it, and when I have it, there's nothing good to use it on. This is another spell that could definitely be replaced with Decree of Pain. Finally, some generically good WBR cards are Mardu Charm, Ankle Shanker, and Hide/Seek.

I hope this helps!

You need Blood Moon ASAP!!. Maybe Purphoros, God of the Forge, Chandra, Pyromaster. Very nice deck +1. Could you upvote and review my St Traft Azorius Control? Thanks

APPLE01DOJ and DarkLaw, the black splash is very tempting. Access to hand disruption, instantaneous removal, and a swiss army knife like Kolaghan's Command is nothing to sneeze at. The question I have is where do I fit these in without straying too far from the deck's original idea of controlling the board with an early Blood Moon, Koth of the Hammer, or Chandra, Pyromaster? I like Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker but he seems to function much like another Avaricious Dragon, though he is more elusive and one mana higher. Chandra is mainly there for her middle ability, as the card wouldn't go to my hand. I will definitely think about Sarkhan.

I can trade everything that you mentioned minus Dromoka's Command which was inquired about earlier today. If possible, I'd also like to propose an alternative for what I would be receiving as I am working on an EDH deck on the side. Let me know how this sounds:

My (total of $14.92 + ~$1):

For (total of $16.27):

Does that work, given that we can fill that gap? Let me know!
