Idol of Oblivion Discussion

I would get Dark Impostor in there. You could swap out Stromkirk Condemned,Vampire Hexmage, or Vampire Nocturnus. More than half your deck isn't black cards so Vampire Nocturnus might not be as handy not to mention showing your opponent your next draw is not usually advantageous.
Purphoros, God of the Forge is kinda expensive for a chance at extra damage. Consider Brutal Hordechief; relative same cost but more bang for your buck. Along with Sanctum Seeker and say Foul-Tongue Shriek you could be doing a ton of damage.
I think you really need some card draw in there but I'm not sure how to make those changes. You could use cards like Oathsworn Vampire as a way to sacrifice a creature for cards like Altar's Reap, Carnage Altar,Costly Plunder, Dredge, Merciless Resolve, Morbid Curiosity, Phyrexian Vault, Reprocess, Skulltap, or Vampiric Rites.
Idol of Oblivion could get you some extra card draw with all of Edgar's token generation.
Drana's Emissary is also nice to have early game.

Recommendations at 112 cards in decklist:
Cards to remove:
Crucible of Worlds - unless you're playing in a land destruction heavy meta, you're only likely going to benefit with this versus mill or forced discard. You're not running fetchlands so it's utility is very limited.
Illusionist's Bracers - while you have more than a handful of creatures with abilities you could double up on, the equip cost plus those activations is somewhat prohibitive. If your commander was still Sliver Queen, it would make more sense. As is it seems like an overly complicated way to double up on your effects.
Rings of Brighthearth - potentially works with Barrage Tyrant, Each activation of the tap ability Gruesome Slaughter grants your colorless creatures, Idol of Oblivion, Brood Butcher, Deepfathom Skulker, Drowner of Hope, Eldrazi Displacer, Essence Depleter, Sliver Queen, Spawnsire of Ulamog, Ugin, the Ineffable, and Golos, Tireless Pilgrim. ---- Doubling World Breaker's ability doesn't make sense. With each ability costing a minimum of 2 (minus Gruesome Slaughter's activations), and up to 7, that extra 2 is going to add up fast.
If it's worth it for you for the 11-12 cards that have the abilities, that's one thing. but I would keep it as a tentative for right now with needing to cut 12 cards from the total list (9 if you cut the 3 mentioned above)

crucif3r I will definitely try Idol of Oblivion. This is currently my favorite deck I have and it has been under constant play testing and adjustments. Now the changes mostly affect my playgroup, so I will want to test at my LGS with some of these. Plus I think it's time to clean out some cards from my binder and get me some new expensive cards.

SatisfactionDay no problem, as for infinite combos, I see where you are coming from, so these are of the table which is understandable.
I would take Emry, Lurker of the Loch + Replenish because you can cheat multiple enchantments in to the game with it. Of course, it has the minor drawback that you do not cast these enchantments, but I do not think that it hinders the overall gameplan to much, beacuse it gives you way more stability against boardwipes.
I recently added Idol of Oblivion to my version of Alela and really like it, because it is an artifact and draws me one extra card every turn I have it.

Idol of Oblivion is super impactful.
Bolt and Tormenting Voice are super mid. If this deck is competitive, I'd play some way besides purphuros to utilize the giant sums of mana you can make with Altar/Rituals. Perhaps a wincon like Comet Storm or some repeatable pump effect in the same vein as big daddy purphuros?
Also Coat of Arms and Rings of Brighthearth are no-brainers for this strategy that you might have missed (I also like throwing in basalt monolith with my rings just to be a spike). Expedite is strictly better accelerate, in fact cut it entirely for Goblin Motivator

So I like this deck but, it seems like the deck is making a lot of small tokens. If you want to go this route have you ever considered Rhys the Redeemed as your commander? Also, these might be a few good cards to give you bigger tokens to populate with Trostani and also syngergize with your lifegain abilities; Angelic Accord, Resplendent Angel, Phyrexian Processor, Ajani, Strength of the Pride and, Mimic Vat. You might also consider adding these card draw abilities, Dawn of Hope and, Idol of Oblivion. Overall, I think you have a good deck here!

I strongly second the Shared Animosity recommendation, that card is nuts. I would recommend cutting Bloodtracker and Blade of the Bloodchief. I don't like the 5+ mana vampires, but they could be supported by including stuff like Buried Alive, some discard engines, Victimize, Living Death etc. Idol of Oblivion is a good draw engine. Springleaf Drum is a generally better Paradise Mantle. Check out my list for more inspiration: Edgar Aggro
