Hex Parasite Discussion

Does it need more varied recursion?
Enchantment recursion (more likely - the enchantments are draw engines, very useful, and fairly varied): best options I've seen in-colour are Crystal Chimes (Skull of Orm is too heavy; nothing else in colour afaik)

Just FYI Hex Parasite cannot be played In Jhoira. Even though it has phyrexian mana, it's black phyrexian mana and that's treated as though it has a swamp symbol on the card. As good as it'd be to use with her it's illegal in this deck.

Tower of the Magistrate seems really...fun. And I can see it potentially having uses when Horobi isn't on the field which is something I try to do.
Candelabra is a wee bit outside my budget as are Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, but Urborg itself might be a good fit if I can find a cheapish one. I have a Thespian's Stage somewhere. I'm not sure where I've put it at the moment, but I like where you're going with it. And at the very least, I can copy someone else's Urborg or Coffers.
Kormus Bell is an amazing card. How have I never seen this before. Obviously it'd work a heck of a lot better with Tomb Urborg, but I still love it. Especially if I have Veilstone Amulet out, else I might regret playing it since I'd have a hard time removing it myself. I used to have Xenic Poltergeist in here and I replaced it with Karn, Silver Golem but I find myself wondering if I should use both. Obviously enchantments are still very difficult unless I also happen to have Liquimetal Coating on the field but I've only managed that once.
Command Beacon I own but it's in another deck. I used to have it in here though and it was really helpful. Perhaps I'll start swapping it back and forth. Because I can assure you Horobi draws a lot of hate. In fact, my deck is in dark grey sleeves but my joke is that Horobi wears a high visibility bright yellow sleeve because he works in a dangerous environment. I think the most I've cast him for was 12 once.
I don't love Living Death because I don't have tons of creatures on the field or in the graveyard generally. I'd be worried my opponents would get a lot more mileage out of it than I would.
Lol, yeah Hex Parasite is really really good here. And, if I would ever remember I can do this, I can actually kill planeswalkers with it. At instant speed. Ah! So good.
My issue with the deck currently is I don't really have a good finisher. I don't have something that just wins the game. Sepulchral Primordial has that potential I guess but it's not really panned out yet. Do you have any suggestions?

So since sagas were revealed, I've decided that I want to build an EDH deck based around them, and after Raff was spoiled I definitely need to do this.
The question is, what commander?
So we definitely want Raff Capashen in the deck, because Flash seems very powerful with these (not that I can't also have Vedalken Orrery, and we also definitely want Jhoira to draw off all the sagas, as well as a few other cards like Mesa Enchantress, Inexorable Tide, Starfield of Nyx, etc. Then in we have Eidolon of Blossoms, Herald of the Pantheon, Argothian Enchantress, and recursion effects to get back our sagas after III happens. Then in black we get things like Zur the Enchanter, Cabal Paladin, and some of the stronger Sagas like The Eldest Reborn, and also cards like Hex Parasite and Thrull Parasite to move around counters.
tl;dr: There are Saga support cards, as well as Sagas, in all 5 colors. Is it best to go 5-color, or are payoffs in some colors too weak? Also, which commander in those colors might synergize with sagas, or should I go for a generic goodstuff commander in those colors?

Thanks for both the comment and the up vote! I was planning on having Hex Parasite in the deck, but I realized I do not have enough creatures that put the counters on themselves. I have considered making a deck that has more of the newer cards from Amonkhet and Hour. If that deck gets built, I'd be sure to include Hex Parasite. It goes extremely well with Glistening Oil, lol. And infect does happen to go quite well with Hapatra as well.
