I love the theme you have here but was curious how your games have performed lately. I was thinking of Heartless Hidetsugu to activate Anya faster but I haven't played the deck so I don't know how dealing that much damage goes for you in your games.
Looks like a blast though! Love in EDH; underdog for sure. Bring the pain!

A Tainted Strike could let you hatefully end the game in a draw with Heartless Hidetsugu, if someone is about to win. Possibly even a win if you have less than 20 life and your opponents have 20+ life.
Also, this would allow you to kill someone out right if they think they are willing to pay the life for their big drop with Kaervek the Merciless on the board.
Also, cast on one of the many 9+ Power creatures you have in this deck, if they ever go unblocked.
Desecration Demon may also have a home in this deck.

While Gisela is very diverse as a commander, in my own version I explain a few combinations: Boros | Gisela Teaches The Times Tables

@Winterblast you are spot on with everything you said. But I want to avoid or in the mana cost so I don't run into the problem of not being able to cast spells do to color screwed. But if I do a serious mana ramp and mana fix upgrade then maybe then these cards will go in. I especially like sorin cause it's like the tree and like you said putting people at a very low life makes them not want to cast big spells when kaervek is out. I also really like Heartless Hidetsugu and Temporal Extortion they are great suggestions. I'm gonna give every card an individual close look and think of a card that would better hold its place

I would suggest some damge doublers, for example Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Wound Reflection, Gratuitous Violence...also interesting to bring people on a low life total to make Kaervek super effective: Pox, Sorin Markov, Temporal Extortion, Havoc Festival, Heartless Hidetsugu, Manabarbs
You absolutely need more speed though. Throw in the whole package of available artifact fastmana plus Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Seething Song. You need to do a serious amount of damage (doesn't matter if you take damage as well) before Kaervek hits the board, so your opponents really have to think about the importance of every spell they want to cast.

In my opinion a group slug theme focused around creature can happen for sure! I also think that Alesha is more combo focused and Marchesa v.2.0 is focused around pillow forts. Your deck ideas are both torn between these archetypes and the group slug you want to introduce. Both can be built sluggy; my suggestion would be to focus more on that theme rather than the other! I'm talking Sire Of Insanity and Mindslicer and Descent into Madness and Dread and Magus of the Abyss and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and Heartless Hidetsugu and Havoc Festival here! Go deep, prefer rattlesnakes over pillows and make them hurt!
Oh wow, I may be more of a sadist than I thought... :p
If there is no strong reason to play white, maybe you could consider running a Malfegor brew? He can be pretty spicy at being group slug!
