Some cards to think about; Paladin of Atonement , Together Forever , Matter Reshaper , Angelic Destiny , Arena Rector (You'd have to add at least one more PW for that one I think), Demon of Dark Schemes

You also don't have Path to Exile , was that on purpose? Vindicate might be good as well. Liliana of the Veil ? Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip might actually be dope. That emblem would be nuts. Sorin, Solemn Visitor isn't terrible.

I'm here as requested. I'll take a more in depth look later when I have time. For now just take my +1 and initial thoughts. Demon of Dark Schemes and Ashes of the Abhorrent can do work with Teysa. Fumigate is also an amazing card. Martyr's Bond is also another Dictate effect.

Also, fancy meeting you here Weiss

Thumbed for Aetherworks Marvel idea, very good synergy with every variant of the deck. If you wanna capitalize on this effect further Demon of Dark Schemes fits on its own and PUSHES energy accolation

Couldn't run demon in our variant because its more of a token/come back from wipe focused variant..but might serve you extremely well.

Great build :)

All these cards will also work with Sun Titan . This deck is straight combo. I don't know why you're trying to turtle.

Also, Massacre Wurm / Demon of Dark Schemes + Linvala, Keeper of Silence + Living Plane is much cheaper than Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite IMO.

Infinite mana does look nice with Grenzo's ability. You'll get to play all the creatures in your deck. Combine it with Demon of Dark Schemes or Noxious Gearhulk for some fun. It would be nice to have a haste effect or life drain effect as well to kill them off, like Blood Artist or Anger .

Raikas Yeah Demon of Dark Schemes seems very powerful. I'll have to test it, and I'll definitely put it in the maybeboard. It is very slow but acts as a boardwipe on its own. Once its engine gets online it might pull off a win similar to the Reassembling Skeleton line.

I don't play Shadows of the Past for the same reason I don't play Ashes of the Abhorrent . Scrying is better than not, but I want to use my card slots for things with higher impact like engine pieces or very good utility. I should put the card in the maybeboard though, you're right about that.

h0ly_danc3r I've never had problems so far with lacking win-cons. If you think you need more, these buff cards would be fine includes, but currently I'd rather have more engine pieces.

Yahenni is good because he doubles as a threat, but I like cheaper sac outlets.

If you need more card draw, Mind's Eye is alright, but this deck can achieve so much more with its plentiful options. I would rather play cards like Stoneforge Mystic , Open the Armory , or Beseech the Queen to tutor for Skullclamp if I need more card draw. Otherwise Necrologia , Mentor of the Meek , and Corpse Augur are all great ways to draw massive amounts f cards for less mana than mind's eye.

Mycosynth Lattice with Marionette Master looks janky and fun.

And since they are discarding so many cards I would also try to put Demon of Dark Schemes in the deck.

Demon of Dark Schemes Is insane. After playing with it in my brew for a few days, it has shown itself to be a huge combo piece. Sacrificing any 2 of our creatures gives us the energy to activate, and if we have Pitiless Plunderer Phyrexian Altar Ashnod's Altar Pawn of Ulamog or Sifter of Skulls out, we can pretty much go infinite or abuse resurection for 1black until we run out of mana. Most of the time we won't though. If Treasure Keeper is the creature we are sac cycling, things get degenerate. He's also a decent board clear.

Also I don't see Shadows of the Past in the maybe board or main. Any creature, scry twice, 2 mana.
