I would recommend Anguished Unmaking , Bitterblossom , Blessing of Leaches , Blood Scrivener , Bloodgift Demon , Boon of Erebos , Coa Ren, Wei Commander , Corpse Augur , Cruel Tutor (Actually, any of the tutor cards). Be sure to include Embargo. Some more are Grinning Demon , Hoarder's Greed , Kothoped, Soul Hoarder. Just suggestions.

No. The Scry 1 is mediocre compared to how huge feeder can get in this build. Additionally Seer doesnt win with mikeaus, the unhallowed & Puppeteer Clique while Feeder does. Yahenni was never a consideration. 3 mana vs 1 mana is a major deal, as is not being able to sacrifice itself like the Feeder can. The Feeders primary purpose is to come down early & Flip Liliana, while also not being a dead draw in the late game.
No. The double black casting cost is much worse in the early game where many of my early ramp is cards like Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, & Ancient Tomb, and I need to spend 2 Black on Liliana. Additionally Nighteyes has singlehandedly won me enough games that I would never consider this swap.
No. Disciples biggest selling point is that its a sacrifice outlet that can flip Liliana on curve the turn after shes played.
Necromancy in place of Animate Dead (1 extra mana for a flash option).
Both Necromancy & Dance of the Dead are great reanimate spells, but I didnt need that many Animate Deads & I chose the option that required the least mana investment. If you value the more expensive Flash mode of Necromancy or the +1/+1 of Dance theyre fine options, just not the version I preferred.
Im not really sure what Id want him for. I mean, yes, he recurs Waste Not & spells, but hes super slow, super clunky, & Legendary so Liliana cant -X him.
Im eventually selling my left Kidney for a Chains of Mephistopheles, and Im told selling both kidneys will result in my death, so the odds I ever own a Bazaar are so low I havent bothered to even think about whether itd be worth including.
I prefer it when my Tutors always work.
Great Card that I ran for a long time, but eventually cut to make room for other cards. May find its way back into the deck someday.
Torment of Hailfire (discard)
Why? Im not a big Mana deck, my Xs will not be that large, and people will just choose to eat the damage. The reason Death Cloud is so good is because an early Death Cloud for X = 3-6 after flipping Liliana in the first three turns is game ending. An Early Torment makes my opponents go k, take 12.
Kokusho for extra drainlife.
If he wasnt Legendary Id play him.
Vindictive Lich (discard)
Im not sure why I would play this. This card is pretty bad.

Hello! I like your deck and thus have a few questions:
Did you consider the following cards? :
- Viscera Seer and/or Yahenni, Undying Partisan in place of Carrion Feeder.
- Withered Wretch in place of Nezumi Graverobber.
- Corpse Augur in place of Disciple of Bolas.
- Necromancy in place of Animate Dead (1 extra mana for a flash option).
- Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed
- Bazaar of Baghdad
- Diabolic Intent
- Phyrexian Reclamation
- Torment of Hailfire (discard)
- Kokusho for extra drainlife.
- Vindictive Lich (discard)
What is your strategy against decks filled with artifacts or enchantments if they lay their cards before your manage to discard them? I don't see any good wipe against these strategies.
Same for graveyard shenanigans decks, Nezumi seems too slow against them.

I run a very similar deck. Feel free to check it out for ideas.
A few cards I'd suggest. Venser, Shaper Savant (another way to get rid of pesky enchantments etc. Gross with sage of fables), Sakashima the Impostor (double dethrone is great, copy Marchesa!), Sadistic Hypnotist (hand hate closes games), Jokulhaups (douchey but extremely effective.), Corpse Augur (life loss + card draw on an aggressive body), Dimir House Guard (finds sneak attack or it's a sac outlet, win/win.), Disciple of Bolas (a little lifegain is needed), Falkenrath Aristocrat (hastey sac outlet is gud), Fulminator Mage, Gray Merchant of Asphodel (alt win-con and emergency abusable lifegain), Grim Haruspex (omg why isn't this in here?),

(I would add a proper community card but that feature seems to be malfunctioning right now.)
Farly straightforward, this card would mostly be Zedruu the Greathearted (although a different character, not simply her gone evil or something) with a casting cost of and an activation cost of . In EDH, this could lead to some fun usage of cards like the following:
(I realize you can basically already do this with any Grixis commander + e.g. Bazaar Trader, but that's a bit less straightforward.)

I'm unsure what would be suitable for its upkeep ability. Just copying Zedruu's straight off isn't too inappropriate, as drawing is certainly associated with black and life gain isn't too far out either, but that's kinda boring. Replacing the life gain with something negative towards opponents like milling, discard or plain life loss proportional to the amount of gifted permanent could be one option that's more in line with the color change (thought the negative effects would probably targeted in order to preserve some political potential). Putting a +1/+1 counter per gift on Zedruu the Grixishearted to take advantage of commander damage could also work (especially when combined with auras like Herald of Torment), in which case you could also change power/toughness from the original's 2/4 to 4/2 to signal greater aggression.
For the sake of flavor its subtype would be Horse Djinn, with the artwork depicting a djinn with a mare's head, wearing a mouth-covering veil.
Feedback would be welcome, especially on ways to make Grixis!Zedruu more distinct from the original while still fulfilling the basic function of giving out torturous black cards, in addition to the blue and red ones they both share.
(A version containing green could also be made for the sake of giving that color a chance to show off its painful cards, in which case the creature in question should probably have monkey paws.)

Cauldron of Souls persist is such a nice skill with this Deck. I am considering to take it.
I will look into the other cards when I get home.
Thanks btw :D

Okay. it seems like I need a lot more draw, so I'm going to move in the direction of permanents that draw cards, because they work better with malfegor. I'm also getting rid of a bunch more discard spells, and a couple draw cards that I think could be better.
