In Garruk's Wake Discussion
1 day ago
I see you don't have any board wipes in your deck, you're going to want in any combination: Decree of Pain, Toxic Deluge, Damnation, In Garruk's Wake and Life's Finale would work well if you play with more cards that interact with your graveyard like Chuff_Bucket suggests.
You want Lazav to survive board wipes so Darksteel Plate seems necessary.

Got a hold of Living Death, so that's in for Cloak and Dagger. I think Cloak was just a bit too gimmicky, more often than not Grenzo would already be on the battlefield so casting this for and equipping for just felt bad. The +2/+0 was kind of nice, but it only really mattered if I hit Flayer of the Hatebound because that's the only creature with power greater than 3 (and I almost always cast Grenzo for X=1). In the future I think Lightning Greaves has a place in this deck for the shroud ability at a much cheaper cost.
In other news I did some more play testing at my LGS and found In Garruk's Wake to be pretty good so far. I often have a lot of creatures out by virtue of Grenzo so keeping them around has proven useful. The added ability to kill planeswalkers I'm liking as well. By that same stroke Caged Sun has not proven to be quite as good as I had hoped, mana is a lot and I don't have any way to cheat out big artifacts. That said, a friend suggested Scrap Mastery which may be worthwhile, considering I'm running 26 artifacts that frequently get binned from Grenzo. Alternatively maybe putting in Arcbound Reclaimer for Myr Retriever might be worthwhile, I'm not sure.
Lastly, in a previous comment I misinterpreted the tribe of Shapeshifter to all have the Changeling ability (which they do not), only Taurean Mauler has this ability. I regret the error.

Hard to say since there's a lot of synergy in your deck and honestly it depends on your meta, Stromgald Crusader seems pretty mana intensive for what he does. Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton interrupt the zombie recurrence theme going on, cards like Diregraf Colossus don't benefit them being in the graveyard.
Blood Scrivener is a debatable one, while at low CMC and added card draw it depends how often you have 0 cards in hand, other than that I couldn't tell you what creatures to cut.
This is where your meta comes into play, personally I would cut most target removal, in a 4 player free for all if you 1-for-1 with an opponent your other 2 opponents are now up a card(however can save you from infinite combos and such) so it's a tough call to make. That being said I would cut Tragic Slip since you can't control morbid on other peoples turns and maybe Slaughter Pact depending on how often you verse other black decks.
Other than that I couldn't recommend anything else to cut your deck seems solid to me.
Edit: here are some other cards I found that go well with your decks synergy:
Cryptbreaker card draw
Call to the Grave control
Dictate of Erebos control
Potential yet high CMC sweepers

I'm quite partial to World Queller .... It's done good work for me in the past.
It's got a high CMC, but In Garruk's Wake will also handle walkers.

Gudul Lurker if you want another of this effect.
Guiltfeeder is clever with ninja's
you don't have too many ETB effects, maybe a Torpor Orb?

I like a lot about the deck and I don't feel like there is a lot of input needed on the creature part - that is pretty straight forward. However... I would like to offer some suggestions for the rest:
There are no wraths in the deck. I would try to get my hands on a Damnation after the reprint in MM17. If you want to go more budget, you could try Blasphemous Act and definitely In Garruk's Wake. Decree of Pain is also very interesting for the deck. Since you might probably try to avoid killing your own stuff, you could also go more heavily on groud-wraths like Earthquake, Subterranean Tremors or anything in that flavor. Having around 5 wraths in the deck could really make it a lot better.
I would cut some of the expensive cards with only minor impact in your specific list like Chancellor of the Dross and the Sorin-Cards - even though they are super flavorful :)
Lastly I think your mana is over-fixed and comes into play tapped to often. Things like the gain-lands as well as the fast-land are actually not that good in commander if you are just two-colour. I would recommend sticking with the ones that come into play untapped always. Once you are in only two colours there is not shortage of them. There is the BR-Odysse-Filterland (Forgot the name), The Painland and also any other fetchland that finds either Mountain or Swamp. The only tapped lands I really would run is the Ravnice-Bounce-Land and the temple. Also maybe cut Mortuary Mire for Bojuka Bog.
That would be my suggestions :)

I'd fix your lands to like... 35? Magus of the Coffers, Whip of Erebos will give Shauka lifelink to give you back your lost life. I would suggest Assault Suit as well, but it is painfully bad for Shauka as she can be tapped down so no one can attack, unless you like politics. Damnation, In Garruk's Wake, Languish, Yahenni's Expertise, Basic target removal would be good as well (i.e. Murder, Doom Blade), there is a sword, Worldbreaker that destroys all other creatures, I would also say run some equipment like the full dual-swords if you can afford them, like Sword of Fire and Ice, Ashnod's Altar is good for getting rid of your own creatures when your ready to swing in as well.
