I like Grim Tutor too.

Hey Chino! I love your deck! +1 from me! A couple thoughts...

Mastermind's Acquisition is strictly better than Diabolic Tutor

Speaking of tutors, look into Grim Tutor or Imperial Seal for more consistency (should you have that issue)

You run thespian's stage, so you might also want to consider Vesuva (think cabal coffers/utility lands)

Lastly, I see you're running hatred! AMAZINGLY FUN CARD! I love you for that alone. But it would suck to pour a lot of life into it and then have it countered (additional cost to cast is loss of life, see oracle text). As such, I think you should have something in your deck to help you against counterspells. That card is Imp's Mischief. SUPER UTILITY. Save a creature, redirect a big X spell, or change the target of a counterspell to imp's mischief. Oh, you want to vindicate my cabal coffers? Well I'll lose 3 and then destroy your commander instead :D

Mirage Mirror is another utility card you might want to look into. Another cabal coffers, big dude, useful artifact or enchantment, etc... It also functions well with Dark depths to get the 20/20 Token.

If you ever get a chance, please check out my deck The Descent Into Darkness, as I would love your feedback! Cheers!

Hello reversemermaid. Wanted to say I tried this list, and it's been pretty awesome. It's fun, and powerful. Manual storming is the best.

I have loved Rebuild. The card is super powerful. Brilliant tech.

I don't have a Grim Tutor so I played a Demonic Consultation - which has been awesome. I've got to imagine it's just better than Grim Tutor. It threatens the lab man combo and just functions as an instant-speed DT.

Also, I really like Jeleva compared to Kess. I usually see a Rest in Peace get played most games. Yesterday Opponent played RIP, I cast Jeleva, immediately flipped a nature's claim from his own deck, and got rid of the Rest in Peace. :)

I would change their costs to and for balance reasons personally. Time Warp and Grim Tutor are already pretty powerful cards with Time Walk and Demonic Tutor being obviously over-powered versions because of their costs, so I think this is the best way to push the envelope, and they are still really really good with those new costs.

Maybe a Sheoldred, the Whispering One for value along with more sacrifice enablers like Disciple of Bolas or Vampiric Rites to get value off of Whip and Reclamation?

Cauldron of Souls and Erratic Portal might also be good here to abuse ETB triggers. You have a lot of tutor options, too, outside of Rune-Scarred Demon like Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Mastermind's Acquisition, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Grim Tutor, Dimir Machinations, Dark Petition, and more fringy options like Spoils of the Vault.

Happy brewing!

What are your ultimate cards left to finish the deck, Vampiric Tutor, Grim Tutor and Mirror Universe?

Off hand, the only high dollar cards that I have not included are Moat, Grim Tutor, and Imperial Seal. Not sure if I would actually include Moat due to the fact that it is a sort of nombo with the theme of encouraging strife at the table, and I am not sure that Imperial Seal is that amazing that I would really include it, but I could see going Grim Tutor over Cruel Tutor and possibly Imperial Seal over Shred Memory. That is about $1.4k right there. There are probably others, but those are some obvious examples.

BoozeUsually No problem.

I'll start with Phyrexian Delver he can be replaced with Body Double which he has been in this case. As for the lands honestly just basics or maybe one filter land and some basics are fine. As for replacing Grim Tutor something like Diabolic Intent would be fine and honestly anything you think might do well in your meta. As the weakest tutor it's pretty flex.
