Glissa, the Traitor Discussion

If you have the spare fast mana rocks laying around, I don't see the problem with running them over slower mana rocks like Blinkmoth Urn and Thran Dynamo. I probably wouldn't cut the slower rocks that can later be cashed in for card draw though.
I feel like the inclusion of Top is up to preference. It's a strong card and will do well here, but I personally only run it in decks which have a good amount of library manipulation or in decks where it has a specific function (like a game winning combo in my Glissa, the Traitor deck).

shadow63, multimedia, Gift of the Deity is too good to remove from this deck (it is especially awesome with Glissa, the Traitor, but I shall instead remove two copies of Vulturous Zombie, since that card has the same converted mana cost.
I also have removed Leyline of Vitality, since its effect is not sufficiently great to make a major difference in this deck, which, along with removing two lands, brings this deck to 60 cards.

I would run Mindslicer as well as Pennon Blade. Additionally, how often do you need to recur your artifacts that Glissa, the Traitor is needed? Carpet of Flowers might be a solid ramp option if you play against decks that even splash blue.

ClockworkSwordfish Thank you for catching that, the extra Questing Beast was indeed a mistake! I did like the recommendation of Rhonas the Indomitable, Mirri the Cursed, and Glissa, the Traitor, they seem very useful for Rayami and for their own reasons. Leyline was mostly for the secondary ability of adding counters and the instant start ability, but it wasn't too necessary to have. Thank you for the feedback.

Here is my take on Glissa, the Traitor. I've long wanted to build her but find myself struggling immensely when faced with all of the great interactions she has with other cards. Mainly I just want to get another set of eyes on this deck to see if I am leaning to far one way or the other (i.e. too much/little removal, too much/few eggs, did I miss some really strong cards for her?, etc.). Note that I have no intention of playing the Mindslaver combo. Thanks for taking a look!

Any Glissa, the Traitor deck rude enough to play Mindslaver should be running Forbidden Orchard. These three cards form a perma-lock on a single player so long as you are not disrupted. Also, consider looking into some self mill. With Glissa, your graveyard becomes a toolbox/hand-extension that you really want to see filled. Dakmor Salvage, Stinkweed Imp and Golgari Thug are all cheap dredgers that can turn one card draw into 2-5 in the graveyard. Hell, even Golgari Grave-Troll is cheap now that it's banned in modern. If you want to break the bank a bit, Life from the Loam and good utility lands like Strip Mine, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Cabal Coffers are all very happy to live in this deck. If you're looking for cards to drop, I know they can be fun and are a little safer to use with Glissa's ability, but cards like Nemesis Mask and Viridian Longbow are so, so much better off as instant speed removal spells like Putrefy or Windgrace's Judgment. Golgari removal spells hit a wider range of targets and many run at instant speed, making them far more versatile than the cheeky equipment shenanigans Glissa can do. Remember, all she cares about is seeing a creature die, she doesn't need to be the one to do it! Hope something here helps you out. I have a 75% Glissa deck that runs several of the cards I mentioned here and I have to say she is easily my favorite commander. Best of luck!

Two questing beasts? I assume that's a mistake!
By the way, are you sure about Leyline of Abundance? You don't have a single creature that taps for mana.

My suggestions using only cards in your maybeboard.
That's 1 more out than in so you should be down to 99.
Ugrades using cards not in maybeboard.
These three cards together with Jarad allow you to sac a 5 power creature to deal 40 damage. Activate Jarac(sac creature is a cost)+Bracers double = 10 to each opponent. Archfiend and Reflection trigger, first deals 10, second 20 for 40 total damage.
Underrealm Lich + Gitrog = draw almost entire deck, since they trigger off each other.
Underrealm Lich will prevent you from decking as it replaces the card draw.
