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

He's definitely on the cusp, I spend life like it's mana, so it's comfortable having some lifegain. Definitely Baneslayer Angel is getting close to cut as well. We'll see what new A/D/D come with War.
I found 22 A/D/D the buoyancy level, less than that, a high % of time you connect with a Kaalia of the Vast attack with nothing to play for free.
It's a balance, trying to get better consistency on Win-Con below turn 5, it's been a tough barrier to break though.
weezel been a great help playtesting some of the cards, since I haven't had too much time lately outside my Budget commander league 2x a week to play.
Damnation I need more indestructible (like Archangel Avacyn Flip), Teferi's Protection needs Split second or to be . I'm probably replacing Terminate with Gamble , and I've picked up a Hatred to try, but then I need MORE Lifelink. Hatred + Lifelink creature is Superstar, so he won't come out if Hatred is in.

Reminds of the one I played. It was my 1st mono-black edh http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/25-01-15-form-blazing-sword/. I say look at it and see some of the unblockable ways to get damage through. Dauthi Embrace gives ANY creature shadow. Hatred lets you end it in One Punch Man. Prowler's Helm , Trailblazer's Boots are another great way to get through. It's rare you go up against a Wall or a deck that has 0 non-basic lands in the deck. If you need more ramp you can always go the Extraplanar Lens + Snow-Covered Swamp route it is one of the cheapest to do the process for they are .50 each. It may take a while but its so worth it.Add Scrying Sheets for sweet top deck ramp. Terrain Generator Thawing Glaciers also serve as extra ramp in black.

Unfortunately haven't been able to play much this past couple weeks outside of my budget commander league (under $50).
Turn 5 seems about right, here's some of the goldfishing stats:
05/02/17 | Avg. Turn 5.7
10/03/17 | Avg. Turn 5.0
01/25/19 | Avg. Turn 5.7 | Combo 40% | Synergy 20% | Damage 40%
02/01/19 | Avg. Turn 5.0 | Combo 50% | Synergy 20% | Damage 30%
Turn 1 is definitely not as frequent as I would like, but the cards to make Turn 1 more consistent make T2-5 less consistent in most cases. Dark Ritual is one that's pretty good all purpose and a T1 enabler if you want to improve your average.
Any lifelink can swing for the fences, except Serra Ascendant he's not that effective because he loses the +5 but still doesn't matter because he lifelinks.
I picked up a Hatred last weekend, going to try it and will let you know. I really dislike it's CMC5, feels too slow.
Felidar Guardian is just another Restoration Angel and putting in Altar of the Brood just for one particular interaction (no other benefits), isn't a good process. I would just tutor the Restoration Angel + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker . Altar of the Brood could replace the Goblin Bombardment if you wanted to test this interaction, works the same way basically.
Combat Celebrant I feel has ok synergy with Kaalia of the Vast , but I usually don't have that many A/D/D to drop in anyway. Wouldn't tutor him over the primary either. Why I like him is the CMC3. Worldgorger Dragon is another possibility for win-con, but takes some balls and a Piranha Marsh (Or Altar of the Brood !)

What up man, anything new to report?
I just wanted to give an update. So after playing maybe a total of 20 games without the following cards: Hellkite Tyrant and Grim Tutor . I can say the deck is averaging T5 wins. Sometimes T3,T4 and T6 but generally, the average is T5.
Gamble Surprisingly, has been working in my favor with tutoring, each time. This has been the most played tutor out of the bunch.
Combat Celebrant has been put inplace of Hellkite Tyrant but I still havent been able to abuse Combat Celebrant yet. I was going to add in Hatred in its place but at least for me, during my gameplays I wouldn't have enough life to knock someone out with it. Plus I feel its similar to Master of Cruelties + Kaalia of the Vast combo.
So now my thoughts are adding another win con. Is it a good idea? I dont know but since I haven't filled the gap of Hellkite Tyrant , it leads me to explore some options.
I'm thinking of adding in Felidar Guardian inplace of Combat Celebrant which takes the original place of Hellkite Tyrant and taking out either Steelshaper's Gift or Stoneforge Mystic for Altar of the Brood
It's just an idea, a suggestion, another way to win but I don't know. What are your thought's about it, like I said, just trying to come up with other ideas. Hell, in the end I might just throw in Hellkite Tyrant and be done. Who knows.

+1 for title, meme-ness, and YARGle.
My only suggestion is Hatred if you’re willing to get it. Absolute obliterator, and would be hilarious to catch opponents off guard!

OK so I'd not been active on TO for a little while and after clearing up a bunch of notifications I popped over to my list of decks to find.... this nonsense:
- Anguished Unmaking
- Charcoal Diamond
- Cruel Edict
- Curious Obsession
- Curse of Chaos
- Dark Bargain
- Drag Under
- Drowner of Hope
- False Dawn
- Karona, False God CMDR
- Lost Legacy
- Mind Rot
- Mox Diamond
- One with Nothing
- Painful Lesson
- Threads of Disloyalty
- Totally Lost
- Utter End
I'd titled the list: "Lost".
Now. I'm pretty sure I've only stuck a 5c commander into the list because I had to put something, however, I now have no memory or idea what I was thinking of or where this was going - any thoughts on what my connection was!!??

Dude, when I wrote my response, I was getting ready to pump some iron so I was loaded up on caffeine. My mind was going a kazillion miles per second and I completely forgot Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker was in the deck Face palm That's why I was confused about Combat Celebrant and making remarks like "I hope you're ready to win" haha but now it all makes sense. I'm surprised I wrote what I wrote.
I have a few questions, obviously not playing the deck yet but just by what I see:
How beneficial has Mausoleum Secrets been. Has it been consistent? Has it been hit or miss? Has there been times where its just been too late to use? pointless in a sense?
What card would you replace Faithless Looting for? I like the idea, its almost cycling in a sense. Getting rid of a card to draw 2 and to discard 2. Either, ones you been holding onto or don't have a need for at the time. You're almost reducing the deck count by that card. Its a nice move.
I'm unsure about Entomb > Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Mausoleum Secrets + Reanimate . Yes the outcome is nice but I feel the process is too timely. If you have None of those, are you really going to tutor for each one? I like the original Buried Alive > Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Karmic Guide + Restoration Angel then BAM Reanimate . That just seems faster and quite simple. The other just seems more of a timely set up just to take advantage of a potential Combat Celebrant .
I could be wrong and definitely be overlooking something here though.
I very much so like the idea of using both Simian Spirit Guide and Dark Ritual . Simian Spirit Guide in a sense is reducing your deck count by 1 with the added bonus of a which also synergises with Mausoleum Secrets but then again, I also feel its one of those cards where it works perfect if you have it during the right time. As turns progress, is it really going to be beneficial or is it taking a slot of another more impactful card? I feel the same with Dark Ritual . What if Necropotence is already out way before you have Dark Ritual ? What slot is dark ritual taking away from? All great cards that work perfect at the right time. I'm probably over thinking it and making it more complicated then it needs to be.
The play is get to your stuff quick. Discard stuff you aren't using to draw what you need to. Every card should be impactful, should all do something to benefit the game/next move. Whether its having you discard to draw, tutor or whatever it may be. The last thing you want is to be stuck with a card where you're like "Ehh, I dont really need this anymore" or "now I cant use this" or "I wish I didnt have this in my hand" but that's why we play games, to test out cards to see if they make the cut or not.
I do like Hatred though. I would lean towards that route first over Combat Celebrant and do some test runs that way. Just because its quicker and doesn't take the time to set up as Combat Celebrant would need. Then if you aren't liking it for whatever reason then try out Combat Celebrant I also like the benefit of Faithless Looting . I like the idea behind Dark Ritual and Simian Spirit Guide I just like the benefit of Simian Spirit Guide reducing the deck count without the cost of life or mana to actually add mana. I haven't played the deck yet, but you have. You know the gameplay more with your deck. so certain things might seem more plausible to you rather than me.
