As an additional cost to play Hatred, pay X life.
Target creature gets +X/+0 until end of turn.

Alright, so gaining a ridiculous amount of life is cool and all, but I think you need more to do with it. For instance, things like Phyrexian Processor , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Toxic Deluge , and Hatred . I see you have Aetherflux Reservoir , so with all that you could also add in Tainted Sigil and gain back everything you and others lost.
And on another note, dont forget about Exsanguinate .
Sorry I can't help on the what to remove... terrible at that. But hope I've helped in some small way at least.

Some good adds: Fervor Lightning Greaves Night's Whisper Anger Hatred True Conviction Honden of Cleansing Fire Crypt Ghast Greed or Erebos, God of the Dead Solemn Simulacrum Final Parting Painful Truths Unburial Rites Rhox Faithmender
I would cut: Agent of Masks Iroas, God of Victory Odric, Lunarch Marshal Purphoros, God of the Forge Mogis, God of Slaughter Ghostway Teferi's Protection Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath Chandra's Ignition Consuming Vapors Obzedat, Ghost Council Disrupt Decorum

Haha oh man, I'm flattered you've even still got you eye on it! To be honest with ya, it's more of a pet card than anything, and definitely could be replaced with something stronger. I'd considered Hatred in it's slot for more consistency as a "finisher" given it's curve with Sidisi and how easy it is to slip her through, but it's not my style with this deck.
I'm not going to lie- if I ever get tired of seeing it in my hand, then it's definitely going to be the first to be cut- likely for another creature as I've slipped below the 40% mark yet again. In the meantime, however, it never gets old goading player A into player B only to have THAT happen.

xkito_music47 Thanks for the upvote!
Hatred is interesting and would probably be good with Varolz at the helm, but since it only hits one target I see it being limited in use. Unless I have say 25 insects, send them all, and then w/e isn't blocked, before damage, do that and kill them. Might be a good way to sneak in a win.

Yes life is a premium, paying life to go fast. Will see how Toxic Deluge goes or if it can't be cast when needed.
Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/Dragon Mage/Wheel of Fate/Chandra Ablaze/Magus of the Wheel are all viable. I play more Orzhov () and splash the Mardu , so usually I won't be pulling too many read lands with fetches. Also, with a Liliana's Caress type build or a Surveil/Dredge and true Reanimator Living Death/Living End type builds it would be very powerful.
In my build, I always feel like once I get Kaalia of the Vast stabilized where I can start dropping the A/D/D from my hand, when I would Dragon Mage to recharge, it would just give my opponents a solution to whatever, Iona, Shield of Emeria or Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Etc., instead of trying to slow the board state down. I just feel this is better suited to a Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or The Locust God, Etc. type Commander.
I'm unsure about Mausoleum Secrets (Situational/Late game), similar feelings towards Gamble (-1 card advantage and randomness) and Beseech the Queen (Situational/Late game). I think Mausoleum Secrets would be good with Selfless Spirit and Children of Korlis in the deck though. Hmm. I will play test it a bit, see how effective it is.
Angelic Arbiter isn't great against some decks like, Izzet () or Grixis (+) but against commanders like Xenagos, God of Revels or any Haste Commander builds actually, or Blightsteel Colossus. Since we get attacked quite a bit too, it also helps mitigate lots of that damage. Like do you want to cast Cultivate or attack with those 3/3's or whatever, do you want to swing your infect and cast nothing this turn? He's been good, won't replace him anytime soon.

Scykrai, the strength of Selenia is that you can use her ability in response to itself as many times as you like, letting you drop your life by any multiple of 2, typically twenty or more. In my experience (I ̵n͝e͟e͢d you̕r͝ li̧f҉e), she's mostly a combo piece, so the strengths that Vona brings to the table are less relevant to the kind of deck that Selenia encourages building. I don't think that Vona is a bad choice for a general in a deck broadly along these lines by any means, but Selenia works really fast to do the things that let this deck win. Plus she's evasive so if you want to play Hatred (which I recommend) it's funnier/easier.

Hey man it's been too long since I've gotten back to this thread. I'm in an EDH league and for next year's decks we are playing 4 color decks, and we are doing a draft. All cards from any commander set is usable by everybody. We will draft 15 non commander set cards to be used, and once a card is drafted, only the person who drafted it can use that card. I have Saskia as my General and I would love to play this style of her. It would be great to hear some input on what 15 cards to hope to draft for. No budget - I'd like to hear competitive on theme picks. Some cards I was thinking: Sylvan Library, Vampiric Tutor, Hatred, Dark Confidant.
