Bhambre on Sarcastically Swamp-Swimming

Lashwrithe or Korlash, Heir to Blackblade are good here. Zof Shade is garbage. Drifting Shade and Evernight Shade arent great, but not the worst for casual. play 4 Nantuko Shade. its the best shade.

you definitely need a way too get those shades through. Whispersilk Cloak seems like the best way to do that. Apostle's Blessing is an instant speed option

you definitely need some form of card advantage. if youre gonna spend cards to get more mana you need a way to spend mana that gets you cards. Phyrexian Arena or Underworld Connections or Skeletal Scrying? maybe something like Liliana of the Dark Realms.

Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is dope. if youre gonna have a landfall subtheme, add some fetchlands like Verdant Catacombs. Sword of the Animist is another good tool for that.

Mind Sludge is just a good card if youre all swamps. you could go further with the discard plan with Mire's Toll.

Pestilence Demon or Thrashing Wumpus or Pontiff of Blight are alternative ways to use all that mana.

Cabal Ritual isnt at its best as you wont get threshold until much later when you already have lots of mana. Culling the Weak isnt great unless you have some sac fodder for it. this deck could also use some cheap removal spells.

lot of different directions to take this. i dig it
