I'll make some cut suggestions in a bit. There are a few underwhelming cards, at least by EDH standards. (e.g. Cruel Edict)

What do you think about Cartouche of Solidarity for Cruel Edict effects?

seems to be it bro ! thx for advices, i've been trying Koth of the Hammer since there is 4 moons in main deck but not that much a fan even if it's good, i also think that an extra Thoughtseize would be better instead of the single Cruel Edict in side. it's incredible to see this Chandra carry games, gonna try new sideboards soon probably. cya :D

Glad i could help.
For spot removal things like Silence the Believers, Cruel Edict, Chainer's Edict are very good. For board wipes i suggest Crux of Fate, Toxic Deluge and Languish.
You can also run some counterspells to help avoid something bad.

I would use Diabolic Edict instead of Cruel Edict just because it's instant speed instead of sorcery.
