Archfiend of Spite seems a good fit, makes discard asymmetrical. Maybe Curse of Fool's Wisdom as well.

add some kind of sac outlet or a couple more instant creature kills, and add Curse of Fool's Wisdom to pair with that Vilis, Broker of Blood .

Sorin Markov and Sorin's Vengeance wouldn't be bad here. I have both I could trade away if you want. Other cards I have that I'm willing to trade to you that could help this deck is Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Bloodhusk Ritualist .

Directions to take this would be board control, hand control, an aristocrats utilizing Viscera Seer and Blood Artist . Blood Seeker wouldn't hurt against go wide strategies. I have all three of those if you'd to trade for them too.

Bontu the Glorified isn't bad here, and works well with Blood Artist .

Whip of Erebos can help recover alot of life you'll be losing. Come to think of it, Erebos, God of the Dead isn't too bad as it will shut down life gain decks and draw you cards.

Nirkana Revenant is great for this deck.

Dread Shade with a Whispersilk Cloak or other evasion enabler can do some serious damage.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled can do some serious damage.

Any of the Ob Nixilis planeswalkers and Lili plansewalkers wouldn't hurt

If you are within the sphere of Dimir (Esper, Sultai, Dimir, 5c, whatever) and you want to draw your entire library in one fell swing with just two cards, you can with these:

By enchanting yourself, once you draw a card you will both lose 2 life and gain 2 life. Since this happens at the same time, you will never lose the game. However, with each 2 life you have lost, you are going to draw 2 more cards off of Vilis. Because of this, you exponentiate the cards you draw.

  • Draw 1 card; Lose 2 life (Gain it back, also)
  • Draw 2 cards; Lose 4 life
  • Draw 4 cards; Lose 8 life
  • Draw 8 cards; Lose 16 life

Now, you might be wondering: "Timmy, isn't this just going to draw me out of the game?"

Yes. That's why we put this in Dimir or within a shard / wedge that contains Dimir's colors.

Additionally, you can use Platinum Angel to stay in the game.

Alternatively, once you have drawn enough cards to your heart's content (Perhaps once you find a Reliquary Tower or a Thought Vessel ), you can kill Vilis at instant speed to break the combo. Additionally you may blow up Fool's Wisdom if you have an Instant speed Enchantment removal spell, allowing you to keep your big 8/8 flyer around. Perhaps Utter End if you are in Esper?

What you do with this is now up to you :)

I'm a bit surprised to see that Bolas's Citadel is not included in the deck. I also think that casting Curse of Fool's Wisdom on yourself is a great way to boost the damage done by Greven into insane numbers.

toastySmorc you make a good point about the deck needing more ramp/fixing, I actually just cut Curse of Fool's Wisdom for a Fellwar Stone . However, your point about focusing on getting Niv or Nekusar out first is basically moot; there's so much redundancy in the deck for effects that kill people with wheels like Psychosis Crawler , Liliana's Caress , etc that you're either just gonna draw into one of them naturally, or you're gonna just play your commanders and go that route. I don't specifically need Niv or Nekusar at all, oftentimes I actually prefer to have Lili's Caress or, say, Waste Not .
