GoldenDiggle: Thanks for the suggestions! Caging Fatestitcher does technically give Mairsil Unearth , but only when Mairsil's on the battlefield (because his static ability only works on the field), so it doesn't really do anything. The reason Fatestitcher (and Dregscape Zombie and Narcomoeba) are in the deck is because after milling our whole library with a caged Mirror-Mad Phantasm, we get a free Narcomoeba, Fatestitcher is almost a free creature due to it untapping the land I used to unearth it, and then zombie is the next cheapest way to get a free creature out so that we have 3 creatures to flashback Dread Return. Then Dread Return hits Laboratory Maniac, and we flashback Deep Analysis/Faithless Looting or just cast a Cantrip.
I love Kuro as almost free removal. Forgot about him.
I was considering going the land destruction route, and I assume it's a viable strategy, but the decks I plan to play this against (the more competitive ones I play against) are Narset and Grenzo decks that generally don't care if they lose a land or 2 since they have pretty fast starts anyway with Lotus Petals and such. If you were to go land destruction in a Mairsil build, you have to remember Minion of Leshrac is just a better Demonic Hordes in this deck.

Does exiling Fatestitcher give him the Unearth ability? If so, thats fantastic!

He has all the activated abilities but none of the downsides so things like Demonic Hordes is possible...
razaketh, the foulblooded is legit too.
I plan on abusing the hell out of Deadeye Navigator.

Oh! I didn't see that you posted twice.
Havoc Demon - I passed him over for the same reasons I passed over Archangel Avacyn Flip and Demon of Dark Schemes- the chances for his effect to backfire on you outweigh the potential benefits. He's arguable more dangerous to your own boardstate than the other two to boot.
Demonic Hordes - Actually didn't know this one existed. Seems interesting but slow and mana intensive. I may try this out one day.
Tyrant's Familiar - This is actually a pretty good card, not to mention the best of the three creatures in the the "Kaalia-cares" portion of this cycle. He used to be in this deck and Balefire Dragon took his place. Given how unhappy I am with Rakdos, Lord of Riots, I may give give this a shot at least until I get a foil Scourge of Kher Ridges.
