Dark Ritual Discussion

This deck is so cool.
Would Silence be a good card to include? It can shut off a player when you go to combo.
I also think Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual would be good includes. They would allow you to win the same turn you get 6 Shadowborn Apostles in play as long as you have untapped and Teysa in play. Because then you tutor Razaketh, use the 6 tokens to tutor Edgewalker, Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Songs of the Damned, Secret Salvage, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Use the B mana to cast your rituals, making 11 black mana. Then you have enough mana to cast Edgewalker, Secret Salvage, and activate Nykthos. Then of course tutor up Gary and Exsanguinate to win.
But being able to win the same turn you get 6 Apostles seems good.

Just taking a quick look, it looks like you're trying to do too many things at once. I would recommend fine-tuning your win conditions to be more consistent.
For instance you have a +1/+1 counter package with things like Corpsejack Menace, but also a random token theme with support like Parallel Lives but only a handful of token producers, and then a random Phenax, God of Deception for some reason?
You then have things like Dark Ritual which can be strong in the right deck but doesn't offer enough overall, long-term value to be worth it in most commander decks.
Basically just decide what you want the deck to do, and then build around that.

I see you are 4 cards short. Not sure what your budget is, but I'd add Diabolic Tutor and Mastermind's Acquisition for sure. I'd also add Dark Ritual, Hypnotic Specter and Tendrils of Agony a very brutal combo. I like the idea since you are playing green too to add Path of Discovery. My opinion for what it's worth is you run too many Planeswalkers. Hope this helps. All my suggestions are pretty cheap and will lower your CMC. P.S. I love Torment of Hailfire if they can't stop it, it's game over.

Either way; I'd run all the card advantage you can. Phyrexian Arena, Bloodgift Demon, Necropotence, Graveborn Muse, Sensei's Divining Top, The Immortal Sun, tutors, etc. I had an Olivia Voldaren deck for a while and rakdos can be a challenge as others mentioned. Maybe add in a few red wheel effects for good measure
Erebos, God of the Dead is less effort and a little more straight forward. Depends on what you're going for

Ok, i'll go more into detail.
You need the 6 following cards played in this very exact order:
Next you cast Buried Alive and get Bloodghast, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion into your graveyard leaving you at floating.The reason you start with Lotus Petal is you need the Swamp to trigger Bloodghast which is the next step.
Shoot one damage with Triskelions 2nd ability at target opponent and the other 2 at it self (since its 2/2 with the +1/+1 Mikaeus Buff thus killing itself).
Since shooting the damage requires to remove the counters from it as an activation cost it has no counters left on itself at the moment the ability resolves and thats why it comes back with undying. After the first activation it comes back with both its own 3 counters plus the one from Mikaeus, so you keep repeating to shoot two damage to opponent and the remaining two at itself.

Unfortunately Dark Ritual isn't Standard legal, it isn't even legal in Modern. Rituals have been moved to red; Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, Infernal Plunge and Simian Spirit Guide being examples which are legal in Modern.
Your deck suffers from not having a turn 1 play, you need to have more 1 mana spells like Lightning Bolt, Faithless Looting, Fatal Push, Inquisition of Kozilek, Gravecrawler, Serum Visions and Spell Pierce it's all about efficiency... At present your deck does nothing turn one and might do something turn 2, by which point you may have taken 5 or more damage.
I have seen a combo deck in the past that ran 4x Wildfire Eternal and 4x Chandra, Pyromaster along with 2x Beacon of Tomorrows 4x Army of the Damned and 2x Din of the Fireherd, that deck had no intention of casting these spells, but was looking to cheat them out.
Your deck seems to be more of a zombie tribal aggro deck, that being the case, I'd suggest upping the count of cheap creatures, like; Dread Wanderer, Cryptbreaker, Slitherhead, Dreadwing and the already mentioned Gravecrawler, pick 2 of these cards and run 4x of each. To make room cut down on your 3+ casting cost cards, Modern is often described as a turn 4 format, due to this cards which cost more than 4 mana need a really good justification for being in a deck.
I hope this helps, have fun brewing your deck.
