Don't stop now. I believe in you!

I particularly like Darksteel Plate here, because then you can run Devastation pretty well.

The big suggestion I'd make is to include some equipment to make Neheb immune to your burn effects: Darksteel Plate, Magebane Armor, Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Fire and Ice, etc. That way, you can burn the field without caring about his toughness! :)

Fair enough I suppose, though I personally feel like they released enough discard synergy to warrant the splash even if Mobilized for War isn't the commander.

On another note since you're already running Vampire Hexmage and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Have you considered running the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo? With both Hexmage and Stage that doubles your chances of getting the token and even if it doesn't pan out for some reason, Urborg would allow it to still be of use.

Also have you put any thought into running a more flushed out equipment package? Olivia is the type of creature that can get out of control really quickly and your opponent's are going to want to kill her fast. So the protection and extra value cards like Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, and Sword of War and Peace can grant you would make her quite formidable. Also Darksteel Plate is also an option for more budgeted decks.

 - Rampaging Baloths   
 + Darksteel Plate
Rampaging Baloths always felt like a win-more card, especially since I rarely attack with this deck on principle. Darksteel Plate should help provide some more protection for Wort, since she's still both the lynch pin and weak link of this deck.

mahdik, Thanks again for the help. Here's what I've decided to do so far:

Added Clock of Omens over Voltaic Key
Added Metalworker over Eldrazi Conscription
Added Darksteel Plate over Myr Retriever, out of your 3 suggestions Darksteel Plate is best suited for this deck.

Dark Depths is fun but not necessary

I didn't add Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil, because like you said they are not that important.

Mishra's Helix is so awesome, I've loved this card for a long time but also not necessary for this deck.

I like Tower of Fortunes and Well of Knowledge, but I don't know what to take out for them, any ideas?

Aether Vial is incredibly weak in your deck, due to all your creatures having cmc 4 or greater, Lotus petal is also quite weak, Sol Ring fits into every deck, Gilded Lotus, and Thran Dynamo are all great ramp for edh, and you will want ways to protect your commander, cards like Darksteel Plate, Shield of Kaldra and Reconnaissance can stop your commander from dying in combat, Reconnaissance is one of the best cards for this, because you can still get your general's trigger. Underworld Connections is much worse than Phyrexian Arena or Necropotence
