I've really been enjoying Dark Confidant Noble Hierarch and Grim Flayer in my list. Just a suggestion, as I do not know what your meta is!

Flayer is a good source of selection, trample is semi relevant evasion and delirium is not hard to get to in a control shell. I feel like hierarch gives you access to very important colors for the deck on top of exalted being a thing in some corner cases. Id consider dropping boreal druid for hierarch in this regard.

Again, these are suggestions and if you're having results already, then that is a-okay! If it ain't broke, no need to fix it ;)

DeinoStinkus, think Dark Confidant would deal too much damage to myself. Balefire Dragon looks good but it has to connect for combat damage to trigger. And at that it's doing 6 damage anyway. Doesnt really need deathtouch. So I opted for Shockmaw Dragon instead. I removed Fire Ants from the list because it hits my creatures a lil to much. But just having it out is good enough. Idk about this one.

RiotRunner that's a good idea. I thought of it too but didn't try putting it together yet.

What you could use is have 4 Blood Artist and switch to a more combo heavy deck. If you want to keep them. I bet Dark Confidant would be great in the deck if you went that route. It could also take the place Cryptbreaker. Zulaport Cutthroat Cavan help as well

Interesting build. I like the inclusion of Crash Through for Dreadhorde Arcanist to recast. It seems really land heavy though and I don’t think the fast lands are really necessary. Dark Confidant is also not very good at accelerating the growth of Death's Shadow since he doesn’t really let you stabilize and can potentially kill you if you flip a Gurmag Angler. I’d throw in three more copies of Thoughtseize if you have them since they are one of the best non land ways to control your life total. Other than that it’s a spicy build. +1

Hey there! As a fellow Zaxara player, I have some suggestions you might want to consider!

Thanks for the writeup. Was interested to see the combo potential of Vilis as I just incidentally got a copy of him to throw in one of my decks. I don't have many suggestions fortunately as I am not much of a cEDh player. Maybe Withering Boon or even Deathgrip (Veil of Blossoms? I am sure there are plenty more trouble green cards too).

Sudden Spoiling because sometimes you just need to freeze the stack.

Terrain Generator to dump extra lands to the field.

If you aren't keeping a ton of creatures around then maybe lean in to black's specialty in boardwipes. Toxic Deluge seems like a great choice.

Dark Confidant works wonders if you are confi-dent in your life gain. Of course there is always Phyrexian Arena and/or Dark Tutelage.

Definitely think the deck could use some more recurssion loops somehow. I don't know of the combos in monoblack but it can't be too hard to break Gray Merchant of Asphodel with something like Necromancy.

Love the list and I will be watching as you tweak it.

Dark Confidant is a good inclusion but not must-have, I don't use it because I have too many cards use life as resource (and I don't own a copy, so I don't bother to pick one up).

Ancient Tomb is not crucial and it also hurts your life, mana fixing is more important IMO, but you can definitely run it (it's a trade-off between consistency and speed, I chose former)
