Nice deck!! I run one that is actually very similar. The Art of the Ninja :p. I am pretty sure Neurok Invisimancer was made for Ninjutsu. Haha. It is too perfect. Have you considered and tutors or artifact ramp? Such as Diabolic Revelation , Increasing Ambition , Diabolic Tutor , or perhaps Gilded Lotus ? These are cards that are phenomenal in my deck. One card I recommend over these however is Arcanis the Omnipotent ...he is beautiful for card advantage. Also you may consider Reliquary Tower for both Arcanis if you decide to use him or vs Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks. May as well take advantage of those cards. Blightsteel Colossus and Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon are also awesome win cons. :p

Finally able to test out Demonic Collusion , not sure if I'm going to activate the buyback cost as often as I'd like. Might switch back to Increasing Ambition soon or switch to Beseech the Queen .

I also like Diabolic Revelation over Increasing Ambition I'm now building a sheoldred deck of my own and would love some feedback from someone that has one and has played it enough to know strengths and weaknesses Sheoldred queen of Urborg (HELP!)

Cards to Consider: Increasing Ambition - Useful whether you mill it or not. Living Death - A board wipe that also gives you an army or creatures. Twilight's Call - Similar to Living Death . Deadbridge Chant - Self-mill and much needed card advantage. Thornling - Indestructible is always helpful. Evolution Vat - Makes The Mimeoplasm very big, if you have the mana. Shared Trauma - It might as well be an X spell since people won't help you but it's still decent. Increasing Confusion - Mill, even if it gets milled. Nephalia Drownyard - Mill in a land for any player. Whispersilk Cloak - For The Mimeoplasm to kill people, undisrupted. Genesis - Pretty obvious. Decree of Pain - This deck has so little card draw...

Cards I would take out: Butcher of Malakir - It's more of a graveyard deck then a deck where you are sacrificing creatures so it won't help much. It That Betrays - Does not fit the theme. You are not forcing people to sacrifice their creatures. Dark Ritual - This won't be useful very often. You would rather draw more cards. Summer Bloom - Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are better.

I think that card draw and more field wipes like Plague Wind would help this deck. Also 1-2 more lands.

illumfolly: Bitter Ordeal could be a nice addition, however my meta currently isn't too big on combo decks as it was before. So the single Sadistic Sacrament has been enough for now. I like Myr Retriever , What I don't like is that it has to die to get the effect. The current Arcbound Reclaimer and Trading Post have done a fair job. As for Dark Depths , I feel that it would be better in a 1v1 environment. Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares are pretty common in my meta. So in big multiplayer games, It usually becomes a "Waste". But those are great suggestions, and as my meta changes I'll be sure to keep them in mind. Thank you for your comment!

BuLLZ3Y3: The reason for not running Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth was simply for selfish reasons. Gauntlet of Power would turn my opponents lands into a mini Sol Ring . But, I've been making changes lately and I'm finally adding in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and cutting Gauntlet of Power . Also Boseiju, Who Shelters All , I found it isn't very important in my meta at the shop...However, I found that online play it's pretty essential. I've tested Mana Crypt as a proxy and I take way too much damage from it..I rather pop for a Mishra's Workshop . But honestly doesn't need it. Thanks for the recommendations!

enpc: Volrath's Stronghold is a great card, But doesn't fit this current build. Cranial Plating is another neat card, But again doesn't fit this current build. The deck doesn't rely on commander damage at all. He's simply there for the graveyard recursion. Darkest Hour , Definitely has some nice synergies. I'll probably be testing this one out to see how it does. Thank you for the comment, Great ideas for other builds as well!

BlatantLizard: I might find a place for Mutilate , Seems like it has more uses for online play than my current meta. Increasing Ambition is definitely a thought, The flashback is the selling point for me. It would allow for me to grab 3 cards total. So I'll be doing some testing with that. Thanks for the great suggestion!

UpperDeckerTaco: Ad Nauseam is a great card. But I'd take way too much damage with the current build! Thank you for your comment!

Ruffigan: Lake of the Dead is neat, I use to run it in my Skittles deck. But honestly it's a better fit for 1v1. It has too big of a potential for putting me behind in multiplayer. Thank you for your suggestion!
